Feeling Sentimental Trio

Happy Friday everyone! I made some thank you cards using the Feeling Sentimental stamp set from the Stampin'Up! SAB catalogue. Love it! When I saw this set I knew I had to have it. And I got this set for FREE. Yay!

Cute bicycle! I always wonder how people back in the old days was able ride it.

I love the phone booth stamp. It reminds me of the show Doctor Who. This one is just a normal phone booth but the one in the show is the police call box.

Wonderful Mother Altered Note Books

Hi, everyone! Good day! I made these two books this past week. I altered two note books for the bride-to-be. She is giving one to her mother and one to her mother-in-law. That is so sweet of her.

This book above I stamped the Baroque stamp in a lighter brown colour for the background of the cover. Tied a long tulle up and down the middle of the cover.

The cover was decorated in red and pink and a flower at the top.

For the this one above I stamped the background in a darker brown colour.

This cover was decorated in blue with a flower at the top. This one is my favourite because it is blue. I like anything blue.

Thank you for your visit today! Happy stamping!

Secret Garden Thank You Cards

Hello, stampers! Hope you are having a great week so far. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. What are you doing for Valentine's Day? My husband and I are going to a Couples' Banquet at church. No need to wait in line like at a restaurant. Seating are guaranteed.

I made a whole bunch of this card yesterday. I'm behind on my "thank yous" about a month. I miscalculate how many I need to make and now I have to make some more.

I used the Secret Garden stamp set that can be found in the Spring Mini Catalogue. There is a framelit die that comes with it making it easier to cut the flower out than cutting them by hand. Love it! No more cutting by hand for me.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy stamping!

Hugs and Kiss Valentine Card

Hey, stampers! Happy Saturday!  I got sometime to stamp and I made a card with the left over glitter paper from the previous project. I die cut a heart from the glitter paper using the Heart Collection Framelits.

I added the Paper Doily Sizzilit die piece at the bottom of the card. It is subtle but it is there. Now that I think of it I should have stamp the background image stamp first then glue the doily to the card.

The sentiment was stamped onto Pink Pirouette card stock and then punched out by using the Petite Curly Label punch. Such a cute punch! It measures 5/8" and 3/4". Very small punch but I like it. I like to mount my images onto another colour so I adhere the sentiment piece onto the Regal Rose card stock and then cut it out.

Valentine Heart Card

Hello, everyone! Hope you are having a good day so far. Wow! It is already February and I have not create much Valentine stuff this year. My plan was to make 14 things to that'll lead up to Valentine's Day and show but things just didn't go as the way I've planned. I was sick most of the time in January and that's no fun.

Here is a Valentine card I made last night. It is a heart shape card and is mount onto a heart shape glittery paper. I use the Heart Framelits Die to cut the card and the glittery paper. The card will not sit on the table by itself because the glittery heart is flat. It'll have to be prop onto something to make it stand. But is look nice the way it is.

Thank you for visiting today!

Bridal Shower Advice/Wishes Book

Hello, stampers! Good day! I made this book for a sweet lady at church for her Bridal Shower. She's getting marry next month. It is an advice/wishes book.

For the cover I put their wedding invitation on the front. Something I've never done before. I think it is cute because of the cute couple on the front. I made the book in her wedding colour. What a fun colour to work with! It took me a few days to make this but if you count the time put together it wasn't that long.

The inside of the book. The envelopes are closed in this photo. I made 2 small envelopes using the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die and the bigger envelope was made using the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. My first time using the Diagonal Plate. It was easy to use.

Envelopes opened.

I made little cards in whisper white card stock to go inside each envelopes. I stamped the corner of each card stock to give it a fun look and then punch the corners of each cards. People can write on it and then they are tuck inside each envelope.

Here is a closer look at the small envelope when it is closed. This is a really neat way to keep the envelope close with the fuzz of tying the ribbon. I should have made the big envelope the same way. Each envelope were punched with a hole on the flap and a hole on the bottom piece with the Slot punch.

Here is closer look at the envelope open.You can see the Slot punched holes.

Then I punch a piece of card stock using the Word Window punch. Add a flower and rhinestone to it. I'll call this punched out piece a key. Not sure what else to call it. If you look at the photo of the closed envelope you'll see that the key just slide through the two Slot punch holes on the envelope and it keep it close. Very easy to access the card inside.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a good day!
