February 2014 Paper Pumpkin
Doesn’t that look cute?

Here are some projects I made with Paper Pumpkin.image The card in the upper right hand corner is how the card was supposed to be made.  I used other stamp sets I had in conjunction with the cards.

I just loved the stamp “Seriously”.  I couldn’t count how many times I said that last year at the day care.  The bathroom was in a building across the parking lot.  Let me tell you, it doesn’t matter how many times you announce that you are going to the bathroom, and you tell little children they need to go try.  Within 5 minutes of returning, someone has to go again.  I said it so many times, little five year olds started saying it too. :)

Don’t miss out on the chance to order Paper Pumpkin and earn a free set of markers.

Sweet Sorbet Memories

Hi Stampers.

image

Yesterday I said I had been stamping a long time.  Anyone remember these metal dvd tins Stampin’ Up used to sell a long time ago.  I had a stack of them in a box.  I had used them for craft fair items.  Since I am not doing craft fairs any more, I figured I take them apart and do something else with them.

I made a little scrapbook out of one.  Maggie Patterson reminded me of how that used to be popular.  Once again, what was old is now new.

I used the Saleabration paper Sweet Sorbet to decorate the tin inside and out.  I also used the 2 1/2″ circle punch and scallop punches with the Five-Way Flower for the outside as well.

The inside scrapbook pages are made with  Pistachio Pudding card stock.  It was cut to size.  You could so this will any metal container you may have.  Or even do it with one of our stamp cases.  These would make great gifts for small events such as sporting events or vacations.                                                                            image

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • #131088 Five-Way Flower
  • #129404 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch
  • #127811 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch
  • #119854 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch

Happy Watercolor Magic

Hi Stampers.

image

How long have you been stamping?  I have recently discovered since I have been stamping since 2000, things are coming back in style.  What was old is new once again.

Magic cards are one of those items.  I don’t mean the type that you shuffle.  Stamped magic cards are the ones with a black and white image.  When you pull the tab, magically color appears.

I learned this technique years ago at a local craft store that had stamp classes.  The secret is a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Window Sheets!                                              image

First, I stamped on the white card stock with black Stazon Ink.  This image was colored.  Next, using the stamp-a-ma-jig, I aligned the image to match the one on the white card stock.  That way when the card is opened the black outline will look like one image.

I have been working on this project for awhile.  When I learned to do this technique, the card was pretty close to a standard size card.  I could not find my template from years ago.  I spent many nights with copy paper, folding and cutting to try to get it right.  I am not sure that it is exactly the same as the template I used years ago, but pretty close I think.  Here are some photos of my trial versions.

image

I was getting the hang of it by the time I created the flower version. I goofed it up on the  very last stamped flower I stamped. I forgot o stamp it off once first so it would be more of a pastel color.  So they became my prototypes (that’s what my friend calls it :) )

image

Easter Egg Holder

Hi Stampers,

image

I realized I missed a post yesterday.  Oops.  Sorry about that.  I hand;t realized I had shared all my stamp projects with you.  I guess I will have to stamp this weekend.  Boy doesn’t that hurt my feelings.

I have a quick project that I wanted to try.  I have seen these cute little egg holders on Pinterest.  I thought they were so cute and simple and it used the new Scallop Tag Punch which I think just dresses things up just a touch.

I used Paula Knall’s directions and used them for imperial measurements. She is from the UK.  Cut your card stock 2″x8″.  Score at 3 1/2″ and 4 1/2″.  Next use the oval from the Designer Frames embossing folder (which is one of this weeks special deals)  on one side.  Use the extra large oval punch to cut the center of the oval out.  Punch both ends of the project with the Scallop Tag Punch.  From there you can decorate the front of your holder.  I used the Petite Petals bundle set.  I used the Old Olive ribbon which is still available from t the clearance rack.  I just love this ribbon.

My plastic eggs came pre-filled from the dollar store.  They came in packs of eight.  They were just the right size.  I put a glue dot on the bottom of the eggs to help hold them in place a little better.  Some of my eggs will be traveling.

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • #134821 (wood mount) #134822 (clear mount) Petite Petals Bundle
  • #133324 Scallop Tag Punch
  • #123130 Designer Frames Embossing Folder
  • #113430 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • #119859 Extra Large Oval Punch
  • #129291 Old Olive 3/8″ Striped Organdy Ribbon
  • #105118 So Saffron Card Stock
  • #126841 Primrose Petals Card Stock
  • #125858 Primrose Petals Ink Pad

Gee, You’re How Old??

image

Hi Stampers.  Have you used the stamp bundle Just Sayin’ yet?  I fell in love with it.  I have few friends that are older than me.  One is only a few days older than me, so of course I ne
I made this little booklet.  I guess thats what you would call it…  the front and back have the thin chipboard that comes with our Designer Series Paper, and the middle unfolds.ver let her forget it. :)

imageHere is what the card looks like open.  They have a pocket in the front and back.  I inserted tags using the new angle tag punche.  One tag I stamped a message and the other I placed a gift card.

image

I will try to make a video of this later in the week.  If I get it done, that will be three in one week.  A record for me :).  there are quite a few steps so it’s a little complicated to type up the directions..

Get Well Card

 

image

Good Morning Stampers,

Here’s a photo of a Get Well card I made this week for my wonderful customer.  She had to have her hip replacement replaced.  Ouch!  God Bless her for having to have it done twice due to a recall.  I hope it cheers her up while she has to have physical therapy.

The designer series paper is actually retired.  However, it can be easily substituted with any designer paper.   I used Crumb Cake card stock as the base, I used the Hardwood background stamp with Early Espresso ink.  I layered a piece of designer series paper on the bottom.  Next, I added the burlap ribbon.  I stamped images from Chalk Talk on the Crumb Cake card stock with Midnight Muse ink.  I cut them out using the Chalk Talk framelits.  Everything was sponged with Midnight Muse ink. Once the corner was folded back, I placed Neutral Candy Dots on to it.

I hope it brings a little joy.  Isn’t that the point to our stamping?

If you want to make on of the cards, order your supplies now.  For every $50 you spend, you will receive an item from the Saleabration Catalog.  Who doesn’t want free items for their paper therapy collection??

See Ya Later Alligator

image…Not for awhile crocodile!

I posted a close up of this project to see if anyone could guess what it was.  The closest I got was “an eye” of some sort.  Which was pretty close.

I saw a card on Pinterest. Brenda Quintana was the original designer. I cased her alligator using her directions.  Because of this card I wanted to make, I had to place another order to get  the Saleabration set See Ya Later.  I love how she could think outside the box on this one.  I think this card is going to be awesome to send nieces, nephews, and little baby cousins.

Are you ready to learn how to make this card?

Tea Bag Holder Video Tutorial

Hi Stampers.  Did you remember to change your clocks last night?  For me, Daylight Savings is like a personal holiday. I dread winter days in Maine that end at 4:30 p.m.  Today is the beginning of days being longer, warmer weather, and summer vacation will be here before we know it.  I can’t wait.

image

Friday I posted these little tea bag holders.  I am amazed at the response they had. Quite a few people asked me how to make them.  I have to admit, it is not my original idea.  I received one from Ellen Boyle in 2009.  After a decade of stamping, I have been stamping long enough that what is old is new again.  How does that happen since I don’t seem to be getting any older??  Oh well, it means I can share these awesome ideas with my new stamping friends.

I love quick, easy projects that come from the heart.  Sweet little gifts given for no particular reason lets people know how important they are to you.  This project will take about 10 minutes to make, if that.  It can hold two tea bags, a tea bag and a chocolate or two chocolates :)

Good Morning Stampers.  Today I have a cute little tea holder.  It can actually hold two tea bags.  However, how would we ever get our chocolate if we did that?

imageHere is the tea holder once it is open.  As you can see, there are two pockets on the inside.  I placed a tea bag and a chocolate in them.  It could hold two tea bags, two chocolates, or anything else that is small.  Maybe some earrings & necklace set.  Wouldn’t  this make such a cute gift just to let someone know you are thinking of them?

Tag It Tissue Holder

Stampmonthmarch

Tag It is featured in  this months Stamp of the Month Club.  Did you see the post here?  Paper Therapy will come straight to your mailbox when you join the Stamp of the Month Club.

A wonderful benefit to this stamp set, Tag It,  is the Ronald McDonald House charities.  For every stamp set purchased, $3 will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House charities.  While you are building your stamp collection, you will be helping families in need.

To get the complete directions for all three projects you will have to be a subscribing member.  With each monthly membership you will receive printed directions and I will also make one of the projects on a video tutorial.  This month I am showing how to make a tissue holder.  I used Kleenex brand tissue because I figured those can be purchased nation wide.  I am not sure if the dollar store brands are the same size or not.  (Also, I could purchase these right at the store in our tiny town. I didn’t want to drive 30 minutes for a package of tissues.)
Tissue Holder Video

You may have noticed in a few spots I sounded a little flustered.  I am sorry for that.  I had all my pieces cut ready to show you how to make this little box.  It sounds easy enough.  First I had miscut my card stock, misscored it, etc.  If you name it, it probably went wrong on the video.  Oh well, I am crafter not a movie producer :) .

Hexagon Hive Soccer Scrapbook

image

Good Morning Stampers.  Yesterday, I mentioned I learned how to make a soccer ball with the Hexagon Hive Framelit from Lynn Starzl.  As soon as I saw her little soccer card, I knew I HAD TO HAVE the Hexagon Hive Framelit.

My daughter had played soccer last fall and between myself and the school photographer, I ended up with several nice digital photos.  Now I need to get them printed.

My daughter is also participating in Spring Indoor Soccer.  I may be making lots of soccer ball scrapbook pages and cards for coaches.

imageI cut the Hexagon Hive Framelit from Basic Black card stock and then glued it to a piece of Whisper White.  I the then placed everything on my magnetic  plate in my Big Shot.  When using the Circle Framelits to make the balls, you can get at least two depending on the size of the balls you make.  In this photo, I used the 3rd and 4th circles from the center of the set.

The base of the scrapbook page is a piece of 8″x8″ Soft Sky card stock.  The grass is Wild Wasabi cut 1 1/2″x8″.  I used the Fringe Scissors to make the grass. I cut a photo frame 4 1/4″x 6 1/4″.  Finally, I used the Banner Punch to cut So Saffron banners to trim the photo. The year was stamped using ABC-123 Alphabet & Number  clear stamp set with Tempting Turquoise ink.

I’m off to the store to pick up my photos.

You Are Missing From Me

facebook_-1737495598-2

 

Today I have to go to another funeral.  It seems like our small town has had too many deaths the past few years.  All different circumstances of course, but still equally as sad.  I found this photo on Facebook.   It really spoke to me.  I grew up in an area that had many French speaking people.  I could only speak basic French that I took in school, which isn’t “real French”.  If people speak slowly enough I can understand what they are saying and I can answer in English, thats the limit of it all.

I connected with this verse because we do miss the people that have passed, we miss them because they can never be in our lives again.  They are missing from us.  Many people are missing from us.  We miss you all Bucksport Angels. <3

On a happier note, my daughter is joining indoor soccer today.  I don’t know if you have seen it on the web anywhere, but Lynn Starzl made the cutest soccer ball with the Hive Famelit (I believe that is what is called from the Occasions Catalog).  I HAD TO HAVE IT!  I have photos of my daughter playing soccer from last fall that I wanted to scrapbook.

Yesterday, my supervisor looked at my daughter and said “You’re coming to soccer tomorrow, right?”  He’s one of the coaches. Who knew there was soccer in the middle of winter??  Not this mom.  I am happy because now I will be able to use my die twice as often :)  I will show you tomorrow the scrapbook page I am making tomorrow.
