Love Is All Around

Oh my, the month of LOVE!  What a lovely month it is!  We here in Southern California have had more rainy days since the New Year than we have had in years.  No complaints, but let's hope we don't slide down the canyon!  Ha!

I wanted to share with you some Valentines projects first. 

This one I cased from the New Occasions catalog.  Page 4 had the most lovely cards, so I wanted to somewhat replicate one of them.  I used All My Love Designer Paper (# 148576), the Forever Lovely stamp set (#148624) and The Lovely Flowers Edgelit Dies for flowers (#148526).

As you can see, not exactly like the catalog, but I just kept getting inspired as I went along!

Next is one that I used a retired Christmas die, but loved the "theme" of "lighting my fire".  The inside is from the Meant To Be Die (it is a bundle) (Occasions page 6 #148626 or #150587 for bundle).
IMG_1865 su IMG_1866
Then I made a mixed media sign...this hangs on our office door.  IMG_1810
I used the Large Letters Framelits (#141712) and Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Papers (#144177) both in the Annual Catalog.  Oh, and the Heart Epoxy Droplets (#146583) from the Occasions catalog.

Well, that is all for today.  I will be out of town the 7th through the 11th visiting our sweet grandkids.  Yay!  So, until next time, be kind to one another and make time for CREATING WITH PAPER!


New Year, New Products, New Ideas!

Hello, Hello, Hello!

I didn't fall of the face of the earth (at least yet), but gosh we have been sooo busy the last three months.  Those of you that have stuck with me during my blogging block, thank you!  I am back now and hope to start getting the mojo going!

I wanted to share some Stampin' Up! news with you all.  The new Occasions catalog is live now and of course along with it comes Sale-A-Bration!  You can click on the pictures of the catalogs in the sidebar to see all the NEW and exciting products that are out.  Sale-A-Bration is such a great thing...purchase $50.00 from the Annual or Occasions Catalogs and get a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  There are some very cute things in there...so be sure to look at all of the new products, but don't forget about the Annual Catalog!  Sale-A-Bration goes through March 31st, and the Occasions is good until the new Annual Catalog comes out in May!  I can't imagine what that will be like!  More new products!  Yippee!

I just recently received some of the New Occasions products, so I am going to get right in and start using some of them so I can show you some possibilities!  For now, enjoy this cute video from Stampin' Up! introducing the new catalog.

 

Well, that is all for today...I will see you soon.  Until then, be kind to one another and remember to make time for Creating With Paper!

My Halloween Projects

Hi There!

I just wanted to share some of my recent Halloween projects.  It has become so difficult not to go right in to Christmas, and I admit, I have done a few Christmas projects.  But, I decided to put those aside and concentrate on Halloween and then try and concentrate on Autumn projects...

So, here are just a few examples:
3 projects
IMG_1639
IMG_1641
My plaquer
As you can see, the tags are using some Stampin' Up! new stamps and dies...they are just so cute!  I love the little witch and cauldron.  The first photo of 3 different projects, the ornament was my first try at making those.  It isn't pretty in person, but it photographed nicely.  Ha!  I was inspired by Christi Wroe and her Christmas ornaments.  But I need practice!  Not good with hot glue...but I will practice! 

I have some more cards to show you, but wanted to get this posted.

Until later, be kind to one another and remember to make time for some Creating With Paper!


Halloween Fun with my Gal Pals


Yes, it has taken me awhile to write this!  Had other things that were occupying my life...but I am here now!

Sunday, August 19th (yeah, I am going back a LONG ways) we had our Creating With Paper Craftin' Gal's gathering!  We always have such a blast at these events!  That alone gives me encouragement to keep doing them.  This time we made Halloween lanterns.  I cut everything out for each of the girls but still had some cutting to do while they all were making them.  Here is my sample I put out for everyone...
Lantern
Here are their works of art...

They all just loved their creations!  I am very pleased when they really like something we make.

Then, September 16th, we did another Craftin' Gals Sunday and this time we made Christmas cards!  Here are my two samples...by the way, thank you to Sarah Lloyd and Stampin Fee from Denmark for the other cute, cute inspiration.  I must admit, I totally CASE'd these for my class.  Maybe just a few changes!
Mine:    Sept 16
 The results: 1st are Nee's cards - I love how she puts them in Pic Collage...something I must try!
Sunday Sept 16th - Nee's photos
Here are Irene's cards and the group photo.  Linda is showing hers and Phyllis was shy and is just holding hers.

Also, Stampin' Up! has a special Limited Time Offer!  The bundle (Stamp and Framelits) called "Color Your Season" is only available the month of August.  Here is my sample I made from the set...  

  Pictures are a tad blurry, but I think you get the jist.  I have only had time to do this one sample, but I loved the stamp and using the Stampin' blends to color ithe flowers in.  I got my idea from Artisan Designer Elizabeth Price.  Take advantage of this limited offer!  There are many, many good ideas on Pinterest and blogs to see how they are used.
