Blog

My name is Andrea, stay at home mama to a house of all boys in the sunny (and very humid right now) state of Florida.  With over ten years of crafting under my belt it is one passion that I cannot seem to stay away from for too long.  Things I cannot live without in my craft space: sewing machine, fabric and stamps.  Let’s just say there are touches of these elements in everything I create. 

—————————————-

With so many border stamps to choose from, why not use them to create your own background design?

Using one of my favorite border stamps from Precious Remembrance, Mom & Dad polka dots, I created a repetitive polka dot stamped background on a die cut cardstock label.  Next, folded in half, I and added stamped images from both the Friend and Oh So Fun stamps sets in black ink.   I then die cut white sketch paper in a small label die cut (approximately five cut in all).

To create the book, layer the sheets of paper and stamped outer label and sew down the fold to attach it together.  Fold it and press down to create the book.

I completed the look using heart stamps from Positive Thoughts and Love stamped onto cardstock, cut out and adhered to the front of the book.

Swoon!!! Oh how cute!!! LOVE!!!

Tons of ideas coming, so stay tune for more upcoming updates.

Inspire Me Friday {A Keepsake for Dad}

Hello everyone!  Hope this Friday is treating you well!  Geri here, with my last project using the new Journey set!  We celebrated my husband’s birthday this week and I was in need of a card, obviously.  I planned on utilizing some mini prints on a card my kids and I could give him together, but even mini prints were just to big for my card.  So…plan B was to go a little bigger and just kind of make it a ‘card in a frame’…sort of a mini scrapbook page.  I really wanted to use the film strip images with my photos and found a fun way to do that…

I don’t know about you but, I can never get away with taking only a serious family photo…we always have to take 2 or 3 goofy ones…I don’t even try to argue about it anymore.  So I heat embossed a couple of  the film strip/negative images on vellum and cut them out.  Then I cut those goofy little faces out of my photo and adhered them to the back of the embossed strips to show through.  I like that the vellum made the photos subtle enough that I could include them without taking away from the larger family photo.  The Chestnut embossing powder gave my filmstrips a fairly realistic color, too!  You can see I used the arrows and a couple sentiments from the Journey set…

…as well as sentiments from the Friends  and Love set, and the paint splatters from the Positive Thoughts set.  I also made a tiny little envelope to hold a miniature sized birthday greeting that includes the kids’ signatures inside.

When all was said and done, I had a special little keepsake in a 5 x 7 frame for Daddy to keep on his desk to remind him of his special day all year long.  (And I don’t think he’ll mind at all not getting a ‘card’ this year!)

Thanks so much for joining me today!  Hope you’re inspired and can find some time to get crafty this weekend!

Inspire Me Friday {Welcoming Baby}

Hello, everyone!  Happy to be with you today, sharing another creation using the ‘Little One‘ set!   I’ve used some papers from Simple Stories, a sentiment from the set, and a few other little embellishments to help create a sweet little scene to welcome Baby…

As you can see, I turned the sentiment into a little banner, hanging it from a Maya Road veneer branch.  To that, I added a little Memory Box bird die cut.  Instead of clouds in the background, I stamped the little open heart from the ‘Friend‘ stamp set several times.  A few other little embellishments finished off the scene!  I always have fun creating happy little scenes like this, so I hope you’ve enjoyed it!!!  Hope you’re having fun with your set, and sure appreciate you checking in today!!!

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!
