DIY Valentine’s Day Decoration / Banner + Video!

Welcome stampers! It’s great to be back again sharing another project idea for you – Valentine’s Day edition!:) You can pretty much make these banners in any theme, but since Valentines is just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to get inspired & create!:)

These are mini banners, I have quite a lot of scrap paper from my 6×6 paper pads, each banner measures approximately 2 “x 3”- cute!

(STAMP SETS: Love Coupon , Happy Art , Sweet Pea , This Moment , Thanks, School Days)

Now if you have some scraps – simply create some of these. I created a fish tail on each banner to add a little something since I didn’t add any embellishments except stamps.

I used 3 colors of inks – red, pink, & black. That will give us not only a Valentine inspired colors but it makes our banner look coordinated.

Most of the stamps that I used are not Valentine theme stamp set – always think outside the box –   versatile stamps is so much fun to work with, it goes a long way as far as creating different projects.

Lastly , I punched some holes to add my string. Now, you can easily add it to your Valentines decor, or how about to your Valentines gift bag? That’s pretty much what I would do!:)

So glad you stop by today!

Thanks again for joining & happy stamping!:)

Storage Idea : Organizing Clear Stamps!

Hello stampers! Welcome to our very first post for 2017! Yay!:) Holiday rush is finally over. I hope you had an amazing holiday, I sure did!:) It’s the beginning of the year, planning, & organizing is such a big inspiration for us. Well today, I will be sharing with you how I organize my clear stamps.

Finding a solution in organizing your clear stamps may take awhile, since you have to figure out what’s best for you. And after trying out so many ways in making it work for me, finally this is it & I’m happy to share it with you!:)

I found it so convenient to store them in a clear plastic – clear stamps storage which is also available in our shop. I added a pretty good weight white cardstock inside, which is easier for me to see not only the stamps but I can also add the name of the stamp set using my label maker.

Now the question is where will I put all of them after? Well, for awhile they’ve been just sitting on random boxes, I was browsing around looking for a perfect one. Just last year, I saw this basket at Target $1 spot – I believe I got it for $3 (if not $5).:) First, I’m not gonna lie – because it’s cute (lol) , second the color matches my craft room, third, lovin’ the label part, where I used my vintage typewriter and typed Clear Stamps.

At first I was worried that it won’t stand properly because of the wire base. To my surprise, It holds my Precious Remembrance Stamps perfectly, and as you can see there’s a lot of room to add more.:) Just what I needed!

In case you’re interested on the same storage, I saw it in Target recently, they are still carrying it. Valentines is coming, they have a lot of pinks & red if  it’s your cup of tea!:)

Thank you so much for joining me today.

Stay tune because designer Judy will be back with more clear stamp storage idea.

Happy stamping!:)

Tuesday Ideas: A Holiday Thank You

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa here with my final post for Precious Remembrance Shop.  I am stepping down from the design team and continuing on in my creative journey.  I have truly enjoyed my time spent with Dyane and her amazingly talented team and will sincerely miss being a part of all the wonderful creativity here!

For my farewell post, I created a holiday themed thank you card.  At season’s end, we’ll all need a few of these!

2016-dec13

I used one of the pine images from the Oh Christmas set to decorate the fun coffee cup from the Coffee Love set.  I love the clean fonts of the sentiments in the Thanks stamp set and selectively inked one to label the cup.  The trio of stars are also from the Oh Christmas set and I stamped and then embellished them with a gold Wink of Stella brush marker to add a touch of festive sparkle.  The green chevron washi tape I found in my stash and used it to ground the coffee cup (please excuse the pun).  The cup is popped up with foam dots for dimension.  This design is a very simple one to create.  I love the sparkle of the stars (they remind me of Starbucks’ gold stars…)!

I hope you’re well on your way to finishing up your holiday cards.  Don’t forget to make a few thank you cards while you’re at it!

Wishing you all the best in the new year ahead!

Tuesday Ideas: School Themed Christmas

Hello, everyone!  It’s Melissa back with more inspiration for Tuesday Ideas!  This week, I’m sharing a school themed Christmas card which uses two stamp sets from the Precious Remembrance Shop store:  School Days and Oh Christmas.  This time of year, school children often take a little something to school for their teachers and this clean and simple card is just perfect for the occasion!

2016-dec6-space

I had so much fun making this card!  I found some fun, plaid washi tape recently and adhered it to the bottom of the card .  The “MERRY” and “Christmas” are both partial sentiments from the Oh Christmas set.  I inked up selective portions and stamped them.  I fussy cut the letters in “MERRY” and drew little red polka dots on them to add a little festive element.  I arranged them randomly to make them come alive and popped each one up with foam dots for dimension.  The school bus was stamped in black ink also and left uncolored to keep the overall design simple.  I can see this going to a bus driver!  They need a little of our gratitude too!

I hope you’re making progress in your holiday card making!  Isn’t it crazy just how quickly time goes by this time of year?  With clean and simple designs, you can get your cards made and in the mail on time!  I hope this inspires you somehow as you are putting things together this holiday season!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Happy December by Andrea Budjack!

Time to wrap up the month of November and head on into December with some holiday stamping cheer.  So grateful to be guest designing with Precious Remembrance over this past month.

I have fallen head over heels for birch wood slices this season.  There is just so much you can do with them.  Today I wanted to showcase how you can easily stamp on the surface and create your very own, unique ornament, gift tag, or holiday decor.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and thank you for allowing me to share my love for Precious Remembrance with you!

Stamps Guide the Needle by Andrea Budjack!

Over the past few months there have been many trips down the embroidery aisle at my local craft store.  The colors draw me in and I do not hesitate to add a few new shades of thread to my collection. 
For my second project, guest designing this month here at Precious Remembrance, I wanted to share a project where stamp and thread meet.

Begin with stitching a black threaded line across your fabric.  The length will depend on the hoop you are using.  Using pale ink, here I used grey, stamp the pine needles.   This is the point when you add the fabric to the hoop and secure it properly.  Now, time to stitch.  Use the stamped image as a guide for your needle and thread.  I also used a portion of a sentiment stamp in the Oh Christmas set to stitch “happy”.  Added a few french knots and done.  To finish things off, stamped a gift tag and box.

I am not a seasoned embroider; however, with a few of my favorite stamps it makes the process much easier and consistent.

Have a wonderful day and see you back here again soon!

Deck The Walls by Andrea Budjack!

This is the time of year when we start digging into our creative stash for the holidays.  Handmade cards, handmade ornaments, and if we have time, handmade gifts.   Today I wanted to share a quick and easy project that can fulfill that gift need, or maybe keep it for yourself.

All the materials you will need for this project are as follows:

Precious Remembrance Stamps – OH Christmas

Ink

Driftwood or small dowel

Twine

Pearl beads

Needle/thread

Adhesive

Wire (optional)

Tassels or charms (optional)

Begin by tying the twine to the piece of wood.  String on beads, tassels/charms, and wire pieces.  Time to stamp!

Stamp as many stars and pine branch onto cardstock as desired.  Cut out each piece. (Note: To create the 3D pine branches, simply cut out two stamped pine branches.  Stamp image on the reverse side of each.  Cut 3/4 of the way up on one and 3/4 of the way down on the second piece.  Slide them together, through the cut, and fan out to create a “x” at the top and bottom.)

Attach the pine pieces to the wire attachments using a needle and thread.  Then, attach the stars to the twine using a double layer of 3d adhesive dots and two stamped/cut out stars.

There you have it.  The wonderful thing about a project such as this is that it can have anything dangle from the twine in the color palette of your choice, using your favorite stamps and items.  Make it larger to add more detail, or smaller as an ornament on your holiday tree.
