Saturday Creations ~ {Mini Album with Sketchy Alphabet Title}

I had so much FUN playing with the Precious Remembrance Sketchy Alphabet Set that I wanted to post one more project for you!  I used this FAB stamp set to make the title for my mini album of our vacation.  Here it is:

And here is a close up of the title:

000_5009TIP:  I used the line in this wood plank paper to line up my letters.  I stamped them one letter at a time to create the perfect spacing.  I colored the letters in with a water brush pen and an ink pad (ink from the inside of the lid).

It was a Wonderful trip and now I have a mini album with just the right font for my title.

Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday Creations – {HB2U}

I’m back with another card using the PR Sketchy Alphabet stamp set.  I LOVE this font and think it looks great when you combine 4 letters or numbers to make a bold sentiment.  This is a birthday card for a dear friend of mine:

000_4981

For the background I stamped words from the PR Blossom Stamp Set.    The butterfly tail and tiny hearts are from the PR Sweet Pea Stamp Set.

Here is the 4 letter sentiment up close.  It was colored with a water brush pen and Prima inks.

I couldn’t stop playing!  Here’s another sentiment to use on a future card:

Then one last thing.  Here is a tag for a graduate gift of a cruise:

000_4988The background is water colored on white embossed paper with ocean creatures.  They just POP when color is added!

I hope you like my designs!  THX for stopping by!

Saturday Creations – {Flash Cards}

Hello there!  When I saw this new PR Sketchy Alphabet stamp set with letters and numbers, I immediately flashed back to studying with my son when he was very young.  He was diagnosed with a learning disorder and one of the tricks we learned was to make flash cards to help him remember information.  I think this set would have come in handy!  We used to make the cards together so he learned while he was making the flash cards and then went over them time and time again until he memorized whatever the information was!  Here is my idea for math for a very young child just starting out:

000_4962

I stamped the word with the PR  Sketchy Alphabet set and made the lines with a stamp from the PR Coffee Love stamp set.  For the circle on the tag for the ribbon, I stamped the letter O.  I thought it was cute!

Then inside there are simple addition equations:

000_4967Different colors for each one!

I hope you like this idea!  Thanks for stopping by!

Saturday Creations ~ {Hi}

Happy Saturday!  I hope you have time this weekend for a little crafting!  Maybe this new PR stamp set, Sketchy Alphabet, will get your mojo working!

Today I have a FUN card for you:

000_4956I LOVE how you can use this set to make sentiments and how you can color the letters in.  For the tiny circles I used the period from this Sketchy Alphabet stamp set and for the larger circles I used the PR Positive Thoughts stamp set.  The squiggle underline for the word HI is from the PR Sweet Pea stamp set.

000_4957

This is a card you need to hand someone in person because of that Gorgeous flower or if it’s for a special someone you can put it in a padded envelope and pay the extra shipping.  I know they will be excited to receive a card from you!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you like my card!

Saturday Creations ~ {Happy Birthday Card PR Style!}

Hello Everyone!  Today I am sharing birthday invitations I made for my husband’s 60th birthday party!  Not only did I use the new PR Date Stamp Set but I combined it with two other Precious Remembrance Stamp Sets.  Let me show you how it turned out:

000_4905I had to write the name Kim (and I wish I had a stamp for that!)

To get 60th, I stamped the 6 and 0 and then for the TH, I stamped the TH from the word THURSDAY, all from the PR Date Stamp Set!  Cool, HUH?!

000_4902

The Happy birthday stamp is from the PR Oh So Fun stamp set.

The grid background is from the PR Fall Colors stamp set.  The word celebrate is also from the PR Oh So Fun stamp set.

000_4904I LOVE mixing and matching PR stamp sets!

000_4898I had to make 18 of them and played around a little with the glitter for the shaker balloons and the watercolors but once I decided what I liked, I made them assembly style.

I hope you like my party invitations!  I wanted to show that this new PR Date Stamp Set can be used for more than just journaling!  It’s FUN to create personalized cards and tags, too!

Saturday Creations ~ {Wooden Gift Tag}

Hello Again and welcome back to another Saturday Creations!  Today I collaged a wooden tag with many layers to use on a birthday gift.

Here it is:

000_4873The tag is made of wood so it is a sturdy background.  I collaged paint, gesso, book paper and washi tape on the background.  The green is paint I smeared on with my finger and the black dots are actually part of a napkin!  The black around the edges is distress crayon.

I stamped the blossom from the PR Blossom Stamp set with black archival ink, clear heat embossed it,  and water colored the blossom.  It’s popped up and adds a lot of dimension to the tag.  Then I stamped the date from the PR Date Stamp Set and clear embossed it as well.  A little dyed seam binding ribbon, some lace at the bottom, and there you have it!  Secret – I loved this tag so much that I put MY birthday on it and it will be a gift to me!  LOL!

TIP:  Use water color paper because it is sturdy and can handle a lot of water and color and holds up well hanging off the side of the tag.

I hope this inspires you to purchase this new PR Date Stamp Set and create FAB projects of your own!

Saturday Creations ~ {Precious Remembrance Date Stamp Dinner Invitation}

Today I am sharing an invitation I made for a dinner party that has already happened!  As soon as I received this FABULOUS PR Date Stamp Set, I HAD to use it!  I couldn’t wait for the product release!  Let me tell you, my friends thought the invitations were so CUTE!  I hope you do, too!

000_4878I stamped the date block in black and the details in Aqua for a contrasting color that would match the background paper.  The random stripes were made using a line stamp from the Precious Remembrance Stamp Set Coffee Love.  I’m also really happy the sentiment “save the date” is in this set because it opens up all kinds of possibilities to use this Date Stamp Set!

Here’s a close up of the silverware I stenciled with graphite paste.  It’s really coarse and textural and makes a cool dinner invitation:

000_4879This Date Stamp Set is a MUST HAVE!

I hope you like my creation!

Saturday Creations ~ {THX}

I don’t know about you guys but there doesn’t even seem to be enough time to breathe this holiday season so I wanted to create a Christmas Thank You card that was quick and easy to mass produce.  I used the PR Oh Christmas Stamp Set and a piece of paper that was laying on my desk leftover from a 6×6 paper pad.

oh-christmas-500x500Since this card is going to a younger adult, I decided to use text speak so they would get the message.

Here’s my card:

pr-thx1I used the pine boughs from the stamp set – cool, huh?!

I added some white sequins for bling, polka dot paper, and non-traditional colors.  Here’s a closer view:

pr-thx4I hope you like it!

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas and don’t forget to send THX cards!

Saturday Creations ~ {Using Three PR Stamps Sets to Say Merry Christmas!}

It’s almost Christmas and today I am showing you how well all of the Precious Remembrance stamps sets work together to make one special card.  I showcased the sentiment from the PR Oh Christmas Stamp set and paired it with the PR Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set and for a twist, I used the jar from the PR Oh So Fun Stamp Set!  I hope you like the result:

Here’s a close up:

Tip – Don’t be afraid to mix and match, even if this leads to an unexpected twist!  But in order to do this, you MUST have more than one of the FABULOUS PR stamp sets.  Head on over to the Precious Remembrance Shop and start shopping.  These stamp sets make Wonderful gifts!
