Hi Everyone! Thank you for stopping by our 1st, First Friday Blog Hop! I'm so excited for this monthly hop!
Each First Friday of the month a group of us stampers will be bringing you a hop for inspiration around a theme. EASTER is our theme today and I have a fun little basket using Basket Builder Framelits Dies.
This basket's base measures apprx 1" x 1" - a perfect size for 1 yummy candy egg.

General Instructions:Make the box bottom (see video). Glue basket components together. Glue basket to box. Add bow to handle of basket.
Hi Everyone! Falling in Love product suite in the 2017 Occasions Catalog is pure romance! Here I've designed an explosion box but with a twist...heart side accents! The video tutorial is below. The first part is the basic construction. They stay for a play by play on adding the accents!
There's also a FREE PDF tutorial for you. Please feel free to download and save to your Dropbox or File!

Hi Everyone! Today I thought I'd share a few SWAP cards I received from other demonstrators. Unfortunately, the swap above did not have a name included. Put I love the play of using Very Vanilla Cardstock as a base. It works even though Whisper White is the color in the Designer Paper.
This card was designed by Monica Giberti. Love how this card showcases the cone swirl stamp that when used, makes the cone look like a tasty treat! A dash of Clear Wink of Stella adds some sparkle!
And holy schma oly! This card is layered up as high as the ice cream cone on top! Stacey Lane is the designer and I love the layers!
This weekend I will have a One-Sheet Wonder made with this suite! It will be a FREE online class with any January order.
Hi Everyone! This week will be Cool Treats Suite Week! My blog is being redesigned and I thought I might not be able to post while it was happening this week. I was wrong LOL. Cool Treats is all about celebrating and since I want to get stocked up on my birthday cards early this year, it's a perfect product grouping to get cards going! And I love love the combination of soft and bright colors! We will delve in full force the next few days!
Hi Everyone! My Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Open House was yesterday. So much fun and I thank everyone who braved the cold to come out and stamp with me! They made 4 projects. 1 of which I already shared with you last week - The pull up Valentine's Treat Holder.
Above is another Open House make and take using Sale-a-Bration Hey Chick Stamp Set that they could choose for FREE as part of Sale-A-Bration - see details here!
Whisper White: 1-3/4 x 2-3/4 Pacific Point or Real Red 2x3
The Notecard and Envelope Pack is great as you have card bases ready to go!
Here's a Video Tutorial on how to make the card above.
Hi Everyone! I had to share a love note during our Sending Love Suite Theme Week! These were our Make N Takes at OnStage last fall. OnStage is for all demonstrators to gather to network, swap and see sneak peeks of upcoming catalogs and products! In fact, a few teammates and I are getting ready to register for the NEXT OnStage in April!
The card bases are made from a 3" x 6" Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack. The paper in the stack is 6x6 so 1/2 sheet. Take a 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" Whisper White to layer.
For the next love note - I wanted you to see how I put the bows on - with a glue dot! Makes attaching them a breeze!
Hi Everyone! Today's Sending Love theme uses the Sealed with Love bundle to create a heart tag with probably the tiniest love note I'll ever use tucked inside. The die cuts and scores the square envelope but when turned, you can make a heart envelope! I love having Stampin' UP! cellophane bags of all sizes on how so I can make a quick treat or package.
General Instructions: Die cut envelope with Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper. Stamp Love image and die cut note. Bring ends together to form heart and attach with glue dot. With 1/8" Handheld Circle punch, punch hole at top of heart. Insert 5 Dove candies into a 2" Cello Bag. Tie bag with Melon Mambo Thick Bakers Twine. Add heart tag. Here's a video tutorial on how to make!
