Bear Hugs Bundle

Hi everyone!

Have you seen the sweet Bear Hugs Bundle from Stampin’ Up? This bundle {stamp set/ dies} has so many possibilities. How about a “Baby cub” themed baby shower? Or maybe Father’s Day and birthday cards made with this bundle? I have created a few different projects and wanted to share them with you. Who doesn’t love a bear hug?

Baby Album

Hi everyone!

I have a new baby album to share with you today. I had ordered some of the “Georgie” paper products from Close To My Heart a while ago and finally got around to playing with them . This paper collection features the colors Canary, Champagne, Glacier, Juniper, Slate, Whisper and White Daisy and is just so sweet for anything baby! The album measures 6″ x 11″ and has 6 2 page layouts ~ for a total of 12 pages {these include the inside of the front and back covers} to add your photos and journaling to. There are photo mats, tags, flaps and pockets to add all sorts of things about this new little baby!

Heart Plant Pokes

Hi everyone!

Today I have some heart plant pokes to share. They can be used to dress up a plant or flowers in a decorative vase, tie onto a wrapped package or tuck into a gift basket. There are 2 kinds of hearts ~ felt/wool or embossed cardstock. The hearts sit on top of wooden dowels, are trimmed with decorative ribbons/glitter and measure 11 1/2″ tall from top to bottom.

*Please note: these will be available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs next week.

“Zoo Babies” Sampler

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a framed sampler using the “Zoo Babies” stamp set {Item #130456} from Stampin’ Up!. It is done in Pool Party/buttery yellow and has an zoo animal friends theme. Of course, the colors could be changed up to suit either boy or girl or even made to coordinate with baby’s nursery.

This project really was a lot of fun! I did quite a bit of fussy cutting and used dimensionals to add depth to the heat embossed images before adhering them to dry embossed layered squares. There are little bits of sparkle here and there as well. The sampler itself measures 7 1/4″ x 9 1/4″. The frame measures 9 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ {outside dimensions}. It is available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs or by contacting me directly.

Valentine’s Treat Bags

Hi everyone!

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I thought I had better get started on the first of a few planned “heart/love” themed projects. Today I want to share with you these sweet little treat bags. They are made with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin “Filled With Love” refill kit {Item #139163, available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers}. Each kit contains everything needed to make 24 treat bags ~ just add your own stamps to the hearts if you would like to. I have put 2 foil wrapped chocolate hearts in each bag before embellishing them. These would be nice to tuck into a gift basket, for children to give to their friends/classmates, as well as for teachers, child care providers and co-workers. Or maybe pop one into that special persons lunch bag for a happy surprise! Each treat bag measures 2″ x 5″ {2″ x 6″ before folding the top over}.

*Please note: these will be available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs at the beginning of February.

Card Kits

Hi everyone!

Anyone can make handmade cards ~ sometimes you just need a little help with the supplies. I am putting together card kits with everything you need to create your own handmade cards. These kits comes ready for you to assemble. They are quick and easy to put together. Included are all the precut and scored 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card bases + 1 extra, die cuts and/or stamped images. Any embossing folder work is done for you as well. You will also get to play with different embellishments that are included with your kit ~ colorful rhinestones, pearls, sequins, brads, buttons, ribbons and twine to dress up your cards.  Each kit will have a different variety of embellishments {a good amount is included so you should have extras leftover for a future project}. Envelopes with embossed flaps and a full color photo example with detailed step-by-step instructions come in the kit.

*Please note:

  • adhesives, glue dots or dimensional adhesives are not included. You will also need scissors for cutting the ribbon and/or twine to fit.
  • each card is left blank on the inside to add your own personal message or maybe a stamped image of your choice {unless otherwise stated}.
  • the supplies used are quality Stampin’ Up! and craft store products.
  • the photo of the finished card included in the kit is for reference only. Please feel free to use your imagination and make these cards your own way 🙂

This is the first completed kit design ~ more are on the way. This kit contains the supplies needed to make 8 birthday cards. They are done in bright and happy colors just right for birthday wishes. These cards would be suitable for kids as well as adults ~ fun polka dots and stripes, as well as pretty florals. *Happy Birthday is stamped on the inside of each card base.
