New Catalogue and a Guy Greetings Card

A new Stampin’ Up! catalogue is always very exciting and this year’s catalogue doesn’t disappoint!

2015 Catalogue

Check out the 2015-2016 catalogue online.  Today is also the last day to order from the 2014-2015 catalogue as well as the 2015 Occasions catalogue, so get in quick if there was something you were wanting for your stash 🙂

My stash of men’s birthday cards is always pretty much empty…I really struggle to make masculine cards.  My class ladies have asked for men’s cards, so here’s the first one I made using the Guy Greetings stamp set.

Guy Greetings 001 - Front

Seriously…it’s not that hard to make a man’s card!

I’m all set to fussy cut a bunch of these anchors this morning while I sit at the hair dresser, so my ladies will be pleased that they don’t have to cut them out themselves if they don’t want to!

Guy Greetings 001 - Inside

I kept the inside super simple, with a greeting from the retired Bring On The Cake stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Berry Basket or two…

I’ve been busy working on projects for my Easter classes later this week.  I think I have made about a million Berry Baskets over the last week or so, and I’ve finally decided which ones we will be be making in class.

Berry Basket Pistachio Pudding

Super cute, right?  I love it!  The pastels in our 2013-2015 In Colour collection are perfect for this project!  My photos are a little dark, this basket is lined with Pistachio Pudding DSP.

Berry Basket Crisp Cantaloupe

It’s looking a bit orange in the photo, but this one is lined with Crisp Cantaloupe DSP.

Berry Basket Coastal Cabana

The Coastal Cabana one is my fave I think!

Berry Basket Strawberry Slush

Last, but not least, is Strawberry Slush!

You can fit quite a bit of chocolate in these baskets, which is pretty dangerous for me!  I haven’t filled all of mine yet…just in case they don’t last until Friday!

3 of these baskets will be leaving on Friday morning to go to Dylan’s teacher and aides.  They do such a fantastic job in the classroom each day, and I love being able to give them something cute to say thanks.  Hope they love them!

I will be back tomorrow with another Easter project 🙂

Birthday Tree CASE

I made this card a week or two ago, and now that I have finally taken photos I think it’s time I shared it.  I have cased this card from Lyssa at Song Of My Heart Stampers.

Lovely As A Tree 003 - Front

I added in an extra layer (you know I couldn’t help myself!) and changed the sentiment.

Lovely As A Tree 003 - Inside

Super simple on the inside, with just a few trees and a little bit of sponging to match the front.

I’m in my craft room for most of the day today so hopefully I will be back soon with another project to share!

Thanks for stopping by.

May SCS Creative Crew Holiday Focus


Holiday Focus:  National Photograph Month

Create a card that looks like a photograph by putting a border around your image and making the image glossy.  Use your On Film Framelits, or make your own frame.  Use Window Sheets to add your glossiness, or cover your image in Crystal Effects.

I haven’t caved in and purchased the On Film Framelits yet, so I pulled out my Squares Collection Framelits to create my own frame.

Wetlands 003 - Front

I stamped the Hardwood background onto Soft Suede cardstock, and die cut my squares to create my frame.  It doesn’t show in the photo, but I have added my Window Sheet in behind my frame, and popped that up on Stampin’ Dimensionals over my sponged Wetlands image.

Wetlands 003 - Inside

Are you ready to show us your photograph card?  Upload your creation to Splitcoaststampers with the keyword CCREW0514HF. Don’t forget to check out the May Creative Crew Gallery for inspiration while you are there!
