Creative Inking Blog Hop — Favorite New Catalog Product Suite

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  I'm so excited to have you join me for the June Creative Inking Blog Hop!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

This month's hop is all about sharing which of the amazing Suite of products in the beautiful new catalog is our favorite.  YIKES!!  This was SUPER difficult for me...as is any challenge to come up with ONE favorite from a group of products.  It's like asking me to choose which child I gave birth to is my favorite. HA!  Some days I may have had a definite answer for you...but, we won't go there. :)

2019_AC_P036
So, to help make my decision easy (for myself), I decided to go with the Magnolia Lane Suite.  For the most part, it's the Suite of products that I have been playing with the last few days.  Look at all of those amazing creations that are showcased in the catalog (page 36-37)!

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuiteCard1-Lori-DSC09966

To help get my creative juices flowing, I love to CASE a card pictured in the catalog.  This one uses a mix of the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, coordinating Magnolia Memory dies, Magnolica Lane Memories & More Card Pack, and Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  Super cool that most of what I needed for this card was already part of the Suite.

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuite-Card1Left-Lori-DSC09971

The Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack is loaded with 56 cards, plus sticker sheets!  The Vellum layers are already stamped with the images...I just added some color using the Mossy Meadow Light Stampin' Blends on the leaves.  The large Magnolia image was inked in Memento black, stamped onto Whisper White, colored with Stampin' Blends markers and die cut.  The sentiment tag is a sticker, but it's easy to convert it to be a regular tag...simply pounce the back with an Embossing Buddy.  The powder dust will reduce the tacky-ness and allow for Stampin' Dimensionals to do their job.

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuite-Card2-Lori-DSC09972

I love that the Magnolia Lane card bases have a nice Silver Foil engraved on the front.  It can be used to 'frame' one of the smaller Memories & More cards.  All I did to this one was add the sticker that trims the pre-stamped sentiment and a few flower stickers to the lower bottom before adding dimensionals and centering over another card I trimmed down from the pack.

CreativeInkingHop-MagnoliaSuiteCard2Flat-Lori-DSC09978


Again, you can make any of the stickers a 'non-sticker' by pouncing the Embossing Buddy all over the stickers backside.  I love the new ribbon pack, too....sooo soft and easy to create bows and knots.  Yummy!

Would you like to create this bundle of cards using the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and other complimentary products?  You'll find the ingredients listed below, and I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support for shopping with me.  Check out my Dreamers Loyalty Reward Program...I love what I do and very much appreciation YOU.  So, I pay it back and reward my loyal customers with a FREE shopping spree. You fill my cup!



 

So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing more Product Suites that are favorites of the rest of the group.  Your next stop on the hop will be with our very creative, Dena Rekow.  I know her projects will be fabulous...she'll have a gorgeous creation (or two) to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Hugs from Shelli Alternatives

Hello Stampers and Papercrafters!  and, welcome to our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop!!   My name is Lori Mueller and I'm part of a team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world that have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the May Paper Pumpkin kit.PPHop-HeaderGraphicThis month's kit is inspired by Stampin' Up!'s Co-Founder, Shelli Gardner!  **squeal**   I have always admired her stamping style because it is right up my alley...country, vintage, and rustic...all piled into one little box.  The name of this kit is very fitting, too..."Hugs from Shelli" because she is such a sweet, genuine woman.  I was sooo excited to see the stamp set and start playing with the new images.  

May2019-PPCoverPic

Every month, the kits include enough supplies to create the designed projects. This month was no different...all subscribers get to create 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs) that come with coordinating envelopes that are lined with designer paper.  The whole ensemble is so down-to-earth using a combination of colors that mix well...Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

PPHop-HugsShelliThankYouRt-Lori-DSC09884
I'm pretty sure the floral cardbase is my favorite pattern of the bunch, so I cut it down to help me dress up a 4" x 4" Crumb Cake cardbase.  The original cards are 3-1/2" x 5", so I cut the card base in half at the 3-1/2" score line.  (HINT:  don't toss the back part of the card, we'll use it in a bit).  The floral piece was trimmed from 5" to 3-5/8".

May2019-PPSupplyPic

Look at all of those supplies you get with this kit!  DANG!!  You can't beat a $20 kit in the mail when you get a full set of stamps, ink and two types of adhesives!

PPHop-HugsShelliThankYou-Lori-DSC09882

The ink spot included in the kit is Early Espresso, so I couldn't help myself but add a little Copper Foil trim using the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  To compliment the foil trim, the sentiment was inked with VersaMark onto Old Olive and heat set with the Heat Tool.  I added a fun trick with the sentiment inked with Early Espresso onto Petal Pink cardstock...add the strip to the Old Olive piece and die cut both sentiments together using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  It helps add a little contrast to the sentiment message.

 


Hugs from Shelli "Hello" Card

Since I cut one of the card bases in half, it left me with the back section of the card (plain Very Vanilla) to design another card.  We'll get a 2-for-1 set of cards with one card base!  YAY!  The floral print is the leftover from cutting down the front part of the cardbase...so, technically, you could say this card is filled with leftovers.

PPHop-HugsShelli-HelloCard-Lori-DSC09874

FUN TIP: Before tossing the negative to any edgelits-type of die cut, check to see if it could fit with another project.  That's what I did with the Copper Foil scalloped flourish die...fits perfect all lined up with the floral print, don't you think?!!

PPHop-HugsShelli-HelloCardFlat-Lori-DSC09880

The sentiment was inked with VersaMark, stamped directly on the Very Vanilla layer, covered with Copper Embossing powder and set with the Heat Tool.  I used one of the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut out the sentiment and then pop it up using Stampin' Dimensionals to set back in place.

 


To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the March Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Goodbye Forever Delightfully Detailed Suite

Hello stampers and crafty friends! Welcome to my blog; and to the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of May!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

The month of May is a mix of emotions when it comes to changing out the current Annual Stampin' Up! catalog with a new one.  Yes, it is sad to see our favorite products retiring and never available to purchase and play with, buuut, all those feelings can fade away when new goodies are seen in the new beautiful catalog.

DelightfullyDetailedM&MCards-147038G


One of the many products I'm going to miss rests all within the Delightfully Detailed Suite of products found on pages 38-39 in the current 2018-2019 Annual catalog.  I absolutely fell in love with the color combination of Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron...three beautiful colors that make up all the detail in the variety of goodies available in this suite.  The main product is the Detailed With Love stamp set, but the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack is filled with 56 fun cards and accessories to help create easy and elegant greeting cards.  Yes, these are the same cards that help a beginning crafter create quick and easy memory books (even novice scrapbookers can enjoy inserting the fun patterns to any full layout).

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard1-Lori-DSC09879

Pair up the Memories & More card pack with the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes and you've got the easiest part of crafting greeting cards all within your inky fingers.  Although, if you wanted, you wouldn't need ink!  GASP!  But, it is very true!  All you would need is a variety of adhesives (Snail, Stampin' Dimensionals, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue), a trimmer and Paper Snips, and you'll a fun-filled day of stocking up your stash of greeting cards that hit the Birthday, Thank You, and Thinking of You categories.

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard2-Lori-DSC09882

I do love my ink, though.  The ink pads and Stampin' Write markers are my main inks because nothing is more exciting than to get a handmade card in the mail than to first feel the excitement of a hand stamped envelope to deliver it in.  Even the postal carrier will have a smile on their face...I guarantee it!

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard3-Lori-DSC09883

The Delightfully Detailed Note Cards are already set up with a background watercolor wash in a variety of colors.  All you have to do is find one of the 56 cards that you like to adorn with stickers, ribbons/bakers twine, and Faceted Dots.  Now, with this card, I did toss in a little extra for this Thank You by die cutting some ovals that layer each other and coordinate with the Blackberry Bliss card base.

CreativeInkingHop-DelightfullyDetailedCard4-Lori-DSC09887

This card is using a regular Whisper White Thick cardstock base cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" that I color washed Blackberry Bliss ink onto the front using my Aqua Painter.  The detailed pattern paper is one of the pieces that came with the Memories & More card pack and I couldn't bear to cut it up.  The fun punched corners was done using the Detailed Trio Punch...happy thing because it is NOT on the retiring list of products!  YAY!!  Buuut, it is bundled with the Detailed With Love stamp set.  If you love the variety of images in that set...and, you love the punch...why not save 10% and get them together?!!  See how fun it is to stamp the envelope?!!  I bet that if you received this fun package in your mailbox that you would start opening it while walking back to the house.  Am I right?

04-15-19_header_retiring_list_na

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Painted Seasons Sale-A-Bration Coordination

Helloooo stamper friends! Welcome to my blog.  I trust that you are having lots of fun on your travels through the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of March!  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented BJ Peters' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop.

CreativeInking-HeaderImage

Can you believe there are LESS THAN two weeks to celebrate Sale-A-Bration?!!  We've had a blast dreaming (and stamping) new projects to share with you.  This time we are sharing projects using the Sale-A-Bration Coordination products that compliment the stamp sets.  Let's check out what I have to share with you!!

 

CreativeInkingHop-SABPaintedSeasonNote-Lori-DSC09536

Did you figure that I would share another project using the new Painted Seasons stamp set AND coordinating Painted Seasons Framelits?  I think that means you are getting to know me.  (grin) I can't seem to get enough of this bundle...because the Painted Seasons Designer Series paper is oh-so gorgeous, too!  I have to tell you, it's been a long time since I've used a bundle as often as I've stamped and created with this one. 

CreativeInkingHop-SABPaintedSeasonsFlowers-Lori-DSC09480

I didn't realize it at first, but this Distinktive flower image is really a "succulent" image.  It's a cool image that is pretty no matter what color you ink and stamp with.  I chose Mango Melody for the bunch of flowers with Granny Apple Green leaves and a Poppy Parade sprig.  The wonderful thing that Stampin' Up! included with the framelits is to add more than one die of several of the images.  What a smart thing to help us save time and mileage on our Big Shot.  Thank you so much!

CreativeInkingHop-SABPaintedSeasonsBunch-Lori-DSC09483

I have to tell you that this bundle really lends itself to create many types of projects...greeting cards, 3D treat packages, home decor...all larger projects.  I was needing some quick (little) note cards to send to my customers—so no matter the size, these images are perfect.  The note card measures 2-1/4" x 5-1/8", scored at 2-5/8".  The sentiment comes from the More Than Words stamp set, which was released with the Sale-A-Bration Coordination products.  Until March 31st, you can earn the Painted Seasons stamp set and designer paper free as a bundle with a $100 product purchase.  If you want more of the Painted Seasons paper, you can earn it free with only a $50 product purchase.

If you are needing any stamping supplies and want to know what supplies I have used to create my note cards, I've listed all of the ingredients at the bottom of this post.  Click on any of the items and you'll be directed to my online store and add any of them to your shopping cart.  I am sooo appreciative to you for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

 

ThankYou-ABigThankYou

From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!!

Stamp It Blog Hop — Sale-A-Bration with Painted Seasons

Hello and welcome to our Stamp It Bog Hop.  It is Sale-A-Bration season and this year's celebration is, by far, the best one I've been involved with during my last 10 years as a demonstrator.  I'm loving all of the freebies we can earn!  And, by the looks of it, YOU are enjoying it, too. I'm so glad you are here to see all of the fun creations we have designed to share with you.  Let's take a peek.

If you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

StampItHop-PaintedSeasons-MyStoryFront-Lori-DSC09455

Has your crafting table ever been flowing with lots of shapes of cardstock, stamped images, and die cut pieces that didn't make the cut for the original project you were working on at that time?  Yeah, me too!  I have been feverishly working on sooo many different projects using Sale-A-Bration stamps, paper and embellishments the past few weeks.  I decided I was going to create this little gem using up a few of those pieces.  We've got a little bit of Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper, flower and leaves; and, the sentiment comes from the Part of My Story stamp set. Both are available to earn free with either a $50 or $100 product purchase.  Can you save LOVELY?!!

StampItHop-PaintedSeasons-MyStoryFlat-Lori-DSC09462

The Painted Seasons Designer paper layer was cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangles and rests on the Basic Black layer that was dry embossed with the Subtle Embossing folder.  The sentiment was inked and heat embossed with Black Embossing powder on a Vellum Oval die cut that was framed with Pool Party cardstock.  This layer was set in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.

StampItHop-PaintedSeasons-MyStoryLeft-Lori-DSC09457

And, look at that beautiful flower from the Painted Seasons stamp set inked up with Poppy Parade...same color as the Painted Seasons paper layer.  Color coordination made super easy!  The leaves were inked with Granny Apple Green and added to the flower to make an arrangement.  Can you see the depth and dimension of those stamped images?  These are Stampin' Up!'s new "Distinktive" style of imagery...one single stamp impression.  Sooo pretty and half the work of double- and triple-step stamping that we've had in past stamp sets.

Would you like to create this beautiful gem?  You'll find the ingredients to create your very own Painted Seasons inspirational card listed below.  I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support if you shopped with me.  For more beautiful inspiration, you'll want to make sure you hop on over to the next Stamp It Group members' blogs to see what amazing Sale-A-Bration creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

Stamping Around The World Blog Hop with Butterfly Gala

AroundTheWorld-BlogHopHeader

Hello, and good morning!  If you've been traveling along the Stamping Around The World Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

StampingWorldHop-GinghamButterflySet-Lori-DSC09420

The layout for this set of cards came from a swap group I participated in a month ago.  I immediately thought of the Gingham Gala Designer Series paper pack and how beautiful it would be to create an entire ensemble showcasing all 5 colors...Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Lemon Lime Twist and Highland Heather.  Don't they look stunning?  Did you notice that I changed up the patterned paper?  I love that the Gingham designer paper has two choices of checks...large and small.  Super cute!!

StampingWorldHop-GinghamButterflySetFlat-Lori-DSC09421

This little butterfly was punched from one of the black and white patterns in the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (free during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order) pack using the Duet Butterfly Punch.  I love that Stampin' Up! focuses on color coordination with inks and papers.  I inked up the solid wing images with Grapefruit Grove...the top set of wings was a 2nd rendition stamping technique; while the bottom set of wings was full ink.  No butterfly is complete unless its wings are smothered with some Clear Wink of Stella...they need that little bit of shine and glimmer!

StampingWorldHop-GinghamButterflyHH-Lori-DSC09411Highland Heather

 

StampingWorldHop-GinghamButterflyLLT-Lori-DSC09415Lemon Lime Twist

I'm extremely happy that we now have rectangle framelits in our product line.  It is a very versatile geometric shape that has been missing for a long time.  The icing on the cake is that they also die cut with stitching!  YAY!!  I inked up the splatter image from the Touches of Texture stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist before stamping the sentiment with Versa Mark and heat embossing with Black Embossing Powder.  The sentiment comes from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Would you like to create a bundle of cards?  You'll find the ingredients to create your very own set of Gingham Butterfly Thank You cards listed below.  I've set it up super easy for you to click on any of the images and add to your shopping cart in my online store.  I would be so very grateful to you and your support if you shopped with me.  For more beautiful inspiration, you'll want to make sure you hop on over to the next Stamping Around The World members' blogs to see what amazing creations they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.

Falling For Leaves October Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop

TutorialBundle-BlogHop-HeaderImage

Hello stampers and crafters!!  Welcome to the All Star Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop for September! You are joining during the round of tutorials (August–January). This team brings to you a "super bundle" of 12 tutorials using only Stampin' Up! products.  There are amazing projects in this bundle that range from traditional-style cards, fancy fold, 3D giftables and various techniques!  We each offer this in our own business for free with a minimum order, as well as, a stand alone PDF purchase.

TutorialBundleDesignTeam-Collage

 

Here are the sneak peeks...it's loaded with fun and excitement and something you don't want to miss out on. 

 

TutorialSneakPeek-Collage-October2018

This month's tutorial bundle is based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and has both metric and imperial measurements. So whether you are a cms or inches person, we’ve got you covered!  Make sure to look for the full details at the bottom of this post.

My extra project this month features the beautiful Falling For Leaves stamp set found in the new 2018 Holiday catalog and the luscious Merry Merlot & Copper 5/8" Ribbon.  YUMMY!!.  Since I can only show you a sneak peek of the project I created in the actual October Tutorial Bundle PDF, I'm sharing a 2nd project I made especially for this blog hop using the same products. It’s different from the project in the Tutorial Bundle as they are exclusive and you won’t see them anywhere else!

AllStarHopFallingForLeavesCandle-Oct2018-Lori-DSC07923

I am gearing up for Fall and Christmas craft and vendor fairs and came across this candle in my stash of "hmmmm, what crafty thing can I do to dress this up?" Do you have one (or more) of those kinds of stashes??  haha!  I think I purchased it simply because of its color...coordinates quite well with Crushed Curry Woods, Texture Designer Series Paper, and the brilliant color of the Copper Foil paper.

 

AllStarHop-FallingForLeavesCandleSide-Lori-DSC07930

After piecing the Woods Texture Designer Series Paper strips onto a strip of Sahara Sand, I knew it had to be finished off with the Merry Merlot & Copper Ribbon.  This ribbon is sooo soft and easy to work with, plus, it adds an elegant sheen and compliments the Copper Foil backing of the Tranquil Tide leaf.

AllStarHop-FallingForLeavesCandleClose-Lori-DSC07927

The bundle of leaves were die cut using the coordinating Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies, arranged, adhered into place and then propped with Stampin' Dimensionals and set into place on the Woods Textures Designer Series Paper strip.  This will be a beautiful addition to your Fall table decorations, don't you think?

 


The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin' Up! and include both Imperial (inches) and Metric measurements.  Soooo, no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase the tutorial and will be able to create the projects.

OSAT Blog Hop — I Need to Thank a Hero

 

Hello-Hello stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my blog and the September One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the previous OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.

OSATBlogHop-2018Header

This month's theme is "I Need a Hero".  Now this could be a teacher, nurse, doctor, military, police, etc.  My family has members in the military, medical field, and on the police force.  Since the anniversary of the devastating 9-11 tragedy, I decided to focus my card towards the American Flag — the good Red, White and Blue.  Soooo many heros pulled together and pooled their skills and undivided attention to help with the situation handed to them. 

 

OSATHop-Hero-american-flag-795303_960_720

I found this image of the American flag as my creative inspiration.  There was something about the background that really stood out for me.

 

OSATHop-HeroFlagCard-Lori-DSC07793

To mimic the background, I thought Gray Granite cardstock was a nice hued neutral...not too light and not too dark. 

 

OSATHop-HeroFlagFlat-Lori-DSC07796

It has been a while since I've played with the various Embossing Pastes and Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  To emulate the flag, I washed some Night of Navy ink using the Aqua Painter...let it dry, then created 'stars' smearing some of the Shimmery White Embossing Paste over one of the Decorative Masks.  The stripes were made using the regular Embossing Paste, which is white to start with.  Simply mix in Real Red Reinker to a small scoop of paste and you have red stripes!

OSATHop-HeroFlagLeft-Lori-DSC07795

Silver and Whisper White Baker's Twine compliments the sparkle from the Shimmery White stars.  The sentiment comes from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set...perfect for all Hero's...they truly GIVE of themselves to help, care and save others!  I hope you enjoyed my tribute card to all of the Hero's near and far.

 


Thank our Hero's Candy Sleeve

It only seemed fitting that I fill a 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag with Red, White & Blue M&M's and add a tag to compliment the Thank You card I shared above.  The Stitched Oval Framelit was die cut from Gray Granite and matted with a Night of Navy Layering Scalloped Oval. 

OSATHop-HeroThanksTag-Lori-DSC07781

 


At this time, you are now ready to hop on over to the next OSAT designers blog.  You won't want to miss traveling on as I know they will have something fun and exciting to share with you.  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can click your way through the blog list found below.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop -- Manly Moments

Hello and welcome Stampers and Papercrafters!  It is the last day in May...yikes! but we have a really fun A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop to share with you!!  YAY! A number of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world have joined together to share alternative projects using supplies from the May monthly kit named "Manly Moments".  I'm super excited to share the projects I created for you....let's get to it, shall we!

PPHop-HeaderPic

Do you struggle creating "Manly" cards?  Yep, I do, too!  Buuut, I'm so excited to see my Paper Pumpkin kit arrive filled with the supplies to create 10 masculine cards ranging from birthday to thank you...and, including nephews and brothers.

 

9d871d66294fe0a203297c36575a2dd2

Another thing I struggle with is creating clean and simple cards...this entire kit is just that.  But, of course, when I create to showcase an alternative card, I have to kick it up a notch...or two.  :)  I started with a traditional cardstock base of 4-1/4" x 11', but scoring it at 4-1/4" and 8-1/2" is not our typical card style.

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018-Lori-DSC06570

I took one of the cardbases from the kit and cut the wood grain and plaid sections off of the card base so that I could use the pieces to decorate and create a really fun pocket card.

 

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018Flat-Lori-DSC06574

The front pocket can house the woodgrain notecard, but there are so many different items you can tuck into pocket cards:  bookmarks, magnets, tags, gift cards, and personalized notes.

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018FlatPocket-Lori-DSC06576

 

Cute Thank You Tag

You are not probably going to believe this, but this little tag is made up of scraps that were laying around my craft counter.  **squeal**  I inked the "thank you" image in Mossy Meadow and stamped first and 2nd renditions onto the scrap stitched shape circle.  The woodgrain strip is from the pocket notecard that I trimmed down.  Super cute, right?!!

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018-ThankYouTag-Lori-DSC06585

 

PPHop-ManlyMoments-June2018-ThankYouTagFlat-Lori-DSC06582

 

I'm really pleased with how these projects came together...clean and simple!  The pocket card can be for any occasion, too...birthday, anniversary, etc.  Gotta love the creations that are designed to accommodate more than one occasion.  :)

 


To get more inspiration for alternative ideas creating with the May Paper Pumpkin kit, make sure you visit the other A Paper Pumpkin Thing Group members' blogs to see what projects they have created to share with you.  I'll be on your heals to soak in the new ideas and inspiration.

How do I know if Paper Pumpkin is right for me?

If you can answer "Yes" to any of these questions, then Paper Pumpkin is the perfect solution for you!

  • I want a creative escape but I don’t have a lot of time.
  • I’m not sure I’m ready to commit to papercrafting, but I want to try it.
  • I love to create but I don’t always feel creative.
  • I need some fresh project ideas.
  • How can I craft when I don’t have all the “crafting stuff” I need?

Go ahead....give it a 3-month, 6-month or 12-month test drive and get in on all the FUN!!  If you end up not enjoying it (GASP!!), you can cancel your subscription.  But, I'm sure you will be very happy and excited to see what the next month will bring you.  Trust me!  I've been a subscriber for almost 5 years and I get anxious to receive my little orange box in the mail near the middle of each month.  **squeal**

OSAT Blog Hop -- On The Red Carpet with Share What You Love!!

 

OSATBlogHop-2018Header

Good morning stampers and paper crafters!  Welcome to my blog for the May One Stamp At a Time (OSAT) Design Team Blog Hop!  We are pulling out the Red Carpet to show off some Glam and Glitz with our creations. How fun is this going to be?  Waaay fun!  Let's check it out!

This may be your first stop on the hop, or you may have hopped over here from the previous OSAT designer. Either way, in order to view all of the blog participants sharing their wonderful craftiness, click on the next person in line within the list of blogger's posted at the end.

OSATHop-RedCarpetWOW-LoveWhatYouDoCard-Right-Lori-DSC06491

I couldn't pass up the chance to pull out some brand new products that you, me...everyone...can preorder before the new Annual catalog goes live on June 1st.  The Share What You Love bundles are a HUGE hit, but the "Gotta Have It All" is the bomb!  The Share What You Love Designer Series Paper is ooh-la-la-licious!!

OSATHop-RedCarpetWOW-LoveWhatYouDo-Flat-Lori-DSC06495

The Love What You Do stamp set is super cute, too.  Outside of the nature images, the mix of fonts for each sentiment image is my favorite.  I love the combination of block-ish type fonts with a really pretty cursive font...really adds elegance and emphasis to the emotions behind the sentiment. 

OSATHop-RedCarpetWOW-LoveWhatYouDo-Left-Lori-DSC06492

I have to tell you that my heart is sooo happy to see that Blackberry Bliss has made a come-back with the new color revamp!  It is oh-so pretty paired with a brand new color...Grapefruit Grove.

 

Share What You Love Mini Writing Tablets

It has been forever since I have decorated a notepad.  The cardstock cover is Tranquil Tide while implementing some coordinating Mint Macaron and Crumb Cake.  It is a beautiful day to create a fun little gift for a dear friend or relative.  The 1/8" Black Cord just adds that little oomph and pizzazz.

I couldn't believe it when I found a package of 5 notepads that reminded me of Mint Macaron.  And, I was right...it coordinated perfectly for the project I had in mind.  Each notepad had a thin chipboard backing, so it made it nice to glue it to the back of the cardstock back.
