Pumpkin Spice–For the Bride-to-be

Hello!  Today it’s my turn to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog.    Our challenge this week is FLOWERS!  We want to see what you make with flowers.  This should be an easy one!   For my project, I decided to make a card for a bridal shower using papers and twine from Shop Pumpkin Spice.  Sadly, I wasn’t able to give my card to the bride.  After I finished taking my photos, I spilled my huge cup of water on my desk and the card was wrecked.   I hate when that happens!  Don’t forget to link up your project at the Pumpkin Spice blog.Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!Supplies:Inks:  Close To My Heart Sweet Leaf & Papertrey Kraft Inks Papers:  Bazzill Basics white & kraft CSEcho Park for the Record 2 Tailored 6x6 paper pad, Stampin’ Up vellum Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot,  Memory Box Small Pinwheel Posie, Papertrey Doily Details Die, Martha Stewart leaf and foliage punches, Stampin’ Up Word Window punch, Papertrey canvas impression plate, Quilling tool Embellishments…

Great Impressions - Christmas mice

Well, we finally have some nice, warm weather in Wisconsin.  It was a beautiful weekend.  But, being my usual contrary self, I started working on my Christmas cards.  I have been trying to wait a while before coloring these sweet mice from Great Impressions Stamps, but I just couldn’t wait any longer.    I see so many crafters getting a jump on their Christmas cards, so I thought I would give it a try.  Maybe I won’t be rushing to get enough finished in November and December this year.  We’ll see.  One card does not make a trend, but at least it’s a start.I hope you have a wonderful week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Christmas Mice (G179) from Great Impression Stamps Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black Paper:  Neenah Classic Crest solar white CS, Papertrey kraft CS,  Bazzill Basics CS, Echo Park Season’s Greetings 6x6 paper pad Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, My Favorite Things scallop edge die, Spellbinders nestabilities dies, Copic markers Embellishments:  Seam binding, May…

Hello crafty friends!  Linda at the Catered Crop came up with a fun challenge for us.  This time around, we want to see your creations using FABRIC!  How fun is that?  Just use some fabric in your paper crafty project.Well, you know that they say timing is everything.  I had a few ideas but when I went up to my craft room I found a pair of jeans my daughter put on my desk for me.  She said that since they are too small and have a rip in the knee, she thought I might be able to use them for something.  How right she was!As always, Linda has curated a Pinterest board chock full of inspiration.  Check out her board Fabric Of Our Lives.   Click on the photo to go directly to her board.Be sure to link up your project using fabric at the Catered Crop.   I can’t wait to see what you create!Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day.Supplies:Stamps:  Beautiful Butterflies from Papertrey Ink Ink:  Kraft dye ink from Papertrey Ink Papers:  Papertrey kraft CS,  Bazzill Basics CS, Georgia Pacif…

Pumpkin Spice– For Mom

I have another card for Mother’s Day to share with you today.   Although I always love October Afternoon’s paper collections, I especially love Woodland Park.   Since I had the papers sitting on my desk after making this card for the Pumpkin Spice blog hop, I decided to see what else I could create.    I created my chipboard letters by adhering kraft cardstock to a piece of cardboard from a cereal box before using alphabet dies to cut them out.   This is a cheap and easy way to have chipboard pieces that match any project.    You can see the Bazzill Basics card stock carried by ShopPumpkinSpice here.You still have plenty of time to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day and join in the fun we had at the Pumpkin Spice blog.     Challenges are open until 6 pm Friday, May 10th.   Each challenge winner will receive a $20 GC to ShopPumpkinSpice.Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!Supplies:Stamps:  None Inks:  None Papers:  Bazzill Basics kraft, white, & red CS, October Afternoon …
