Bliss Notebook

Wow 2 posts in one day! crazy. I wanted to show this today since I used my favorite SAB stamp set and TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to earn it!!! It is the Bliss stamp set - love the name.
Sorry for the bad picture, I made this as a gift and the early morning light made it hard to take the picture, and the glare didn't help either. I promise it looks so much better in person.

This is a fun notebook holder I made. Did you know that you can buy the clear stamp cases? they are super cheap and are so fun to decorate. The outside has a clear plastic sleve to slide some paper in. I made this for a 12 year old and I wanted something durable so all the outside decor is under the plastic. Inside I decorated a pad of paper. I did have to cut the notepad a little shorter to fit.
Super fun, just add a pen (forgot to take a picture with the pen but it matched)!
Happy Sale-a-Bration!

Cupcake Party

Ok I am realizing that I keep straying to pennants and banners! I think they are so much fun! To make these pennants, I cut a bunch of old olive rectangles I just attached them with one dimensional each and made sure that it layed on the top of the thread and under the pennant! easy. I did basically the same thing with the ribbon ties but used glue dots instead.
Love this saying even though the textured paper makes it a little hard to read!
The pages were fun to make because we got to use almost all the stamps in the stamp set to make all the different kinds of cupcakes.
So I have to admit something... I didn't use 100% Stampin' Up! products on this layout. This white crochet thread was store bought... It was hard for me but guess what? It is coming! you can see it in the next mini catalog! YEA! I kind of wish I waited a couple months to make these pages but I didn't know until after the class was over.

Sew Much

This is the card we made at stamp club this month. I am LOVING the "oh sew suite" line in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I have a few more things to share with you another day like the pages to match this card, and a darling skirt for my baby :)
The framed tulip border is a new embossing folder! We colored in the sewing maching with aquapainters, and the flower is a big shot sizzlet.

I had to experiment with the pom pom ribbon. The best way I found to attach it is with the tombow liquid glue!

A Little Luck

Last week as I was organizing my photo's into blog posts to show you all, I must have clicked publish instead of save, that is why you all can see the random post from last week. :) oh well those projects don't need instructions right? They were just cut out of the big shot and made as is...

I hope you are all having a great St. Patricks Day! I actually love this holiday, it is fun without the stress! Tonight we are going to have green eggs and pancakes (I love breakfast for dinner), rainbow jello and some yummy caramel rice krispy treats for dessert.
I just had to throw this picture in, isn't this tiny chubby hand so cute! Yes, she loves those buttons :)

My decorations this month were pretty sparce so I made this to put on my piano. My almost 2 year old has already pulled off the letters, (I put them on with dotto, so it is a quick fix) luckily she didn't touch the buttons! The corduroy buttons are retired, but you can still buy a few of the colors HERE while supplies last!

SAB Birthday

3 more weeks! Wow, Sale-a-bration is flying by. We only have 3 more weeks to earn free product! What is your favorite SAB item this year?

On this card, I used the SAB ribbon and button pack and the Ice Cream Parlor paper. I wanted the ribbon to be more subtle so I used the back side, I love how the image shows through just enough to not over power the other elements on the page.

Happy Sale-a-Bration!
