Planner Spread by Nicole Martel

Good morning! I’ve been documenting my plans for July. It looks like I don’t have much going on so far except for my sister’s annual 4th of July party and Edward is going to cooking camp for a week which means he will be staying with my mom… and I’ll be childless for the entire week! 🙂


For this planner spread I used the DIY Stamp Set and the Date Stamp Set. Also, you will find a few buttons from the shop. Aren’t they beautiful? I love them. I used the heart die cut from the Totally Bits & Pieces and a few Happiness snippets.


Love that “DO it yourself” stamp with the ink splatters! It’s beautiful isn’t it?


I used a few stickers from the Oh So Fun Sticker Set too.  I cut it down so it would fit on the planner nicely.


Here is a closer look at the Date Stamp Set. Loving the font! I decided to use only black ink for the stamps so the images would really stand out.


I added a few cloud die cuts from Paige Evan’s Whimsical collection.


I cut the “Less work, more play” from one of her patterned papers. It’s perfect!




As I get closer to July, I’m sure I will have more stuff to add. I love how this spread has just enough stamps, stickers and embellishments, allowing just enough space for plans as well.

Thanks so much for visiting!

Tuesday Idea | Halloween Treats

Hello everyone! Kim Duran here with a new Tuesday Idea featuring the Holiday Wishes stamp set. Since this stamp set is primarily a Christmas theme, I thought it would be fun to showcase it as a Halloween set. With that idea in mind, I’ve created a Halloween treat bag that’s perfect for a quick gift.

I started with a medium size glassine bag and added diagonal stripes using black Stayz On ink. This type of ink is permanent and can stamp onto almost any type of material, even fabric! After stamping the bag, I added a quick burst of air from a heat gun just to make sure there were no smudges.

The tag from Holiday Wishes is perfect year round, but to give it a Halloween twist, orange ink was a must! I also added the date, October 31, using the Calendar stamp set. Dyane’s handwritten fonts are just the best! Talk about cute!

I added a few layers using patterned paper, a dark purple doily, and crinkle ribbon. Then the finishing touch, filling the bag with chocolate bars! Oh yes!

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween treat bag idea using the Holiday Wishes stamp set. It’s just another way of getting more use from your stamps year round.

Thanks Card + Update

Hi stampers!!! I hope your weekend was a super one!:)

Look what I made!♥

{ Stamp Sets: Positive Thoughts, Calendar, Thanks}


I hope so…. ^_^heehee

Ok, let me tell you something about this card. I totally didn’t expect, that after I stamped the splatters everywhere on a blue paper using the white pigment ink,  it looks like bubbles under the ocean! cute!♥  That’s how it looks for me at first glance.  Don’t you think?^_^ Love it!♥

And can you see the settle square stamped image at the back of the flower? I used the same blue ink like my sentiment. But I stamped it first on a scratch paper, and then stamped it on my final paper to get that softer look. It does help to make the sentiment pop out more.♥

More details for our upcoming release! Join us this Friday, September 6,2013. Get to see our newest collection + giveaway!♥

That’s it from me today! I hope you enjoyed.

Thanks for stoppin’ by! And see you this Friday!

Have a great day!

Tuesday Idea | Enjoy the Journey

It’s Kim here to share with you a Tuesday Idea project. In my house, we are big campers! Love going camping, fishing, or just being outside in the fresh mountain air. This summer, I am extra happy about camping because we just purchase a new trailer yesterday. The excitement hasn’t worn off yet and I can’t wait to get out and hit the road!

The timing is perfect for the newest stamp set here at Precious Remembrance. It’s called, “Journey.” And I can’t think of a better way to create a card with the great open road on my mind. I used the “enjoy the journey” sentiment as my starting point and created a sort of postcard themed card.

Mixing it up, I used several other stamp sets from Precious Remembrance too: CalendarPositive ThoughtsMom & Dad, and Journey. I just love the way they mix and match so well together!

So what plans do you have for the rest of the summer? I am sure you can guess what our family will be doing! And I think this Journey stamp set will be perfect for scrapping a travel journal while we are on the road. It’s the perfect stamp set to compliment any summer travel plans.

Tuesday Ideas {a star is born}

Welcome to “Tuesday Ideas” with me, Kim. I hope everyone in the USA had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I sure did!

I have another card idea to share with you featuring the newest stamp set, Little One. This time, I combined the Calendar stamp set with Little One to create a personal card for baby.

I know of a little one who will be born in June. Since I don’t know the exact date, I thought it would be nice to stamp the addition of the date on the calendar once she is born. That way it will make a great souvenir to save in baby’s scrapbook. I added the month of June to the top of the calendar and a row of little pink hearts. To fill the space below the calendar, I added rows of dashed lines.

I added the adorable bear image from Little One and a sentiment to announce “a star is born.” Of course, adding white trim and a delicate paper doily make it perfect for such a tiny sweet baby.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! So glad you stopped by.

Tuesday Ideas {colorful layers}

Hello and a happy Tuesday to you! It’s Kim here to share with you a Tuesday Ideas creation. And today’s project is all about layers.

I just love adding layers to my cards. In fact, sometimes it’s difficult for me to stop adding layers. Although I understand that this style can be intimidating to some, I will share with you my method for piling on the layers without going overboard.

With spring in the air, our family has started going on bike rides again. It feels so good to be outside when the weather has started to warm up. With that idea in mind, I found inspiration for my card today.

I started with a three-part color theme in blue, red, and yellow. For me, choosing my color theme first helps me to stay focused when gathering coordinating ribbons, trims, and buttons. With color in mind, I can quickly scan my craft room for matching embellishments and avoid any supplies that are not in my color theme.

After putting all my layers together, I completed my card by adding the “enjoy” sentiment from the Calendar Stamp set, “fun times” from the Friend Stamp set, and the yellow polka-dot heart from the Love Stamp set. Each perfect for a spring time card!

So…even though there are many layers on my card, it all came together rather quickly because I had a color theme in mind. I hope you’ll try this method out next time you’re feeling a bit crafty.

Thanks for joining me today!

Create It Wednesday {celebrating you}

Celebrating the sentiment today.  Whether you add it to your project as a border or create the perfect sentiment, they definitely make a statement.  In today’s card and box set, mixing and matching sentiments is a favorite with Precious Remembrance stamp sets.

Used several sets including Friends, Birthday, Thanks and Love stamps to create something special.

The box is bordered using the “thank you” border stamp from the Thanks set.  A label created from stamping cardstock , cutting out the label, distressing the edges with ink and scoring along the middle to create the fold.  Marked the “x” using the number one from the Calendar set as well.

How will you use your sentiments today?  Thank you for stopping by for Create It Wednesday and hope you enjoy your day!

Inspire Me Friday {a pocketful of thanks}

Hello, and welcome back, friends!  Geri here, with my final Friday inspiration using the ‘Thanks‘ set.  I used the image of the ‘thank you for’ list on this card, and used a little gold star to mark what I was thankful for…

everything, of course!  I pulled out some older papers I had stashed away, and a set of pockets I got awhile back for almost nothin‘ on clearance.  Used the pocket to tuck my little ‘thank you’ note into…

…and used some other embellishments to pretty it all up.  (I included a sentiment from the ‘Calendar‘ set on the pocket.)

I sure have enjoyed creating with this set, and appreciate you joining me each Friday!  I’m sure Elena will have something sweet for you tomorrow to wrap up her inspiration, too…don’t miss it!  Then I hope you’ll join us for inspiration using a great new set…coming soon!!!

Create It Wednesday {layers of my heart}

What is the one thing you may see most tomorrow?  Hearts…and lots of them.  It is all about the love of hearts today, and Precious Remembrance has so many adorable ones to choose from.  Today I am sharing a card using a few of these heart stamps to create a little something for spring.

Bring together your ink, cardstock and stamps (used Thanks, Positive Thoughts, Love sets) and create.  Added texture to each heart petal by brushing a craft knife along the cut edges of the stamped edges.  Folded each in half and used a combination of foam adhesive with craft glue to create the flowers.

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and maybe find a new way to use your heart stamps this week!
