Vintage Birthday Ensemble – May Bonus Project

The May Bonus project at Craft Project Central came out today.  I love vintage projects, so I definitely love this one!  The designer is Carrie Rhoades.

Vintage and paper crafting are a hot combination right now, so why not incorporate that into a birthday celebration? This ensemble is a great start for a special girl’s birthday. The birthday crown would make any little girl feel special on her big day. There is also a Memories Book with fold out pages so each party guest can write a special note to the birthday girl. And a birthday party just isn’t complete without party favors! A pinwheel sets this party favor bag apart, and would entice anyone to take a peek at the goodies inside. These handmade vintage birthday pieces will give any birthday party that extra special feel that all birthday girls deserve!

Twitterpated Ornate Top Box & Card

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!  Mine was busy, but wonderful!  My second daughter, Steph, graduated from high school on Saturday, and we had a few open houses to attend.  With that said, I wasn't able to get the project that came out on Saturday at Craft Project Central posted.  It's a great one, too, and here it is!  The designer is Kim Score.

Do you enjoy wrapping up small gifts in special packages? If so, this is the box for you! The ornate top box paired with the beautiful Twitterpated designer paper is the perfect packaging for that special someone. Adapt the box with other designer papers for great seasonal packaging too! The end of the school year is quickly approaching and what teacher wouldn’t be impressed with a little something presented in this special box with the matching card? Substitute the Well Worn masculine designer paper for male teachers! This project makes for a fun class, club, or camp project!

Tooth Fairy Door & Accessories

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm sorry that I haven't been able to post any of my own projects for awhile.  The last two months have been stressful with my sciatica and then last week getting a bad sinus virus.  My daughter, Steph, is also graduating from high school this Saturday, and that's what's keeping me busy, now.  We're having her open house in 2 weeks, and then everything should get back to normal.  I'll still try to get something made to show you before then, but I'll definitely be able to after her open house.

In the meantime, I do have a wonderful project to share with you.  It's another cute project over at Craft Project Central.  The designer is Tara Bourgoin.  It's her first CPC project, and I think she did a great job!

Table Saw Gift Card Holder

I can't believe how talented the ladies over at Craft Project Central are!  Isn't this table saw card holder great?!  The very creative designer that came up with this great project is Amanda Corbet.

Do you know someone who likes to work with wood? Do you want to give them a gift card in a really special way? Then this project would be perfect! This interactive Table Saw Gift Card Holder will require the recipient to do just a little bit of work to get the gift card out, and in the process it looks like the table saw is cutting a piece of plywood!

Sailboat Party Favor & Pocket Card

This week's Craft Project Central designers have really outdone themselves!  I just got pictures of this week's projects, and they're wonderful!  Today's very cute project was designed by a new guest designer, Jennifer Timko.

I’m always looking for cute party favors and invitations for my own personal use, and my friends are always asking me if I have ideas for their parties too! Well, here’s a super cute Sailboat Party Favor and invitation that could be used for a baby shower, or easily adapted for a birthday party! Just add the children’s names to the flags on the boats and use the You’re Invited sentiment on the invitation! Put a special treat in the Sailboat and it’s smooth sailing for a fun party with a darling theme!

We Have A Winner!

Congratulations to Lynn Koepke (Angels Who Stamp)!  She's the lucky winner of a free May subscription to Craft Project Central!  I just sent you an email, Lynn, giving you more information.


Now, to today's card.  I made this quick and easy card for a Stamp-A-Stack I did for a group of ladies in Lebanon, IN last Saturday.  Almost everything I used on this card is retiring!  The retiring items are the Pear Pizzazz card stock, Poppy Parade card stock & ink, Flight of the Butterfly stamp set (p. 108), Oval All stamp set (p. 131), Pocketful of Posies DSP (p. 184), and Butterfly punch (p. 210).

Tip:  I stamped the butterflies onto the Confetti White card stock first.  Then, using the same color inks (Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, & Rich Razzleberry), I stamped them onto the color card stock (same as the ink colors listed above).  I then punched out the color butterflies.  I put adhesive onto one wing on each butterfly, and attached them over the butterflies that were on the Confetti White card stock, making sure the antennas were visible.  I also folded the wing that wasn't attached on each butterfly up to make them look like they were flying.


Stamps:  Flight of the Butterfly & Oval All

Ink:  Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, & Rich Razzleberry Classic ink pads

Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry, & Confetti White card stock; Pocketful of Posies DSP

Accessories:  Large Oval, Scallop Oval, & Butterfly punches

First Card With New Catty Goodies!

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I got some new goodies from the upcoming annual catalog yesterday, and just had to make something with them.  I also wanted to make a card using this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch this month over at Craft Project Central.  This sketch is CPC11.

Isn't this new stamp set adorable?  It's called Betsy's Blossoms, and it's going to be in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog that debuts June 1. Also in the new catalog is this gorgeous new designer paper called Floral District DSP.  I am in love with the colors and designs in this paper.  I've never put these colors together before, and I just love them!  There are other colors in the paper pack, but they aren't all in the papers that I used for this card. 

I know some of you hated to see the 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon retire, but don't worry, this wonderful 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is replacing it.  I really like it better with the stitching.  The color of this ribbon is Daffodil Delight.  How do you like the banner I used for the greeting?  It's made with a new Framelits die set, and it's called Bitty Banners Framelits.

I just love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!  It's so much fun to get new product and the new catalog a month early!  These are just 2 of the many wonderful benefits I get by being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Stampin' Up! has made it even easier to become a demonstrator if you would like to become one, too!  The Starter Kit is now ONLY $99!  Isn't that great!  The starter kit is fully customizable, too!  You'll get up to $125 in Stampin' Up! product and a business supply pack valued at $65 for only $99, and shipping is free!  To find out more about becoming a demonstrator, you can go to the Join the Fun page at my demo website, or Contact Me.  You can sign up to become a demonstrator by clicking "Join Now" on my Join the Fun page as well!  I would LOVE to have you join my Stampin' Up! family!

Also, don't forget to leave a comment.  Each day you leave a comment from Wednesday, May 9 until next Tuesday, May 15, you'll be entered into a drawing to win a free month subscription to Craft Project Central!  I'll announce the winner on Wednesday, May 16.



Stamps:  Betsy's Blossoms & Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink:  Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade, & Basic Black Classic ink pads

Paper:  Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, & Whisper White card stock; Floral District DSP

Chance to Win a Free May Craft Project Central Subscription

I was going to post this earlier today, but I got sidetracked with....the new SU! Annual Catalog!  It came this morning, and I just had to look through it!  There are SO many stamp sets that I just have to have.  I don't remember having this many stamp sets that I LOVE in one catalog.  There's usually a pretty good list of stamps sets I want, but this year it's a lot longer.

Today's Craft Project Central project is the one I made.  My second child, Stephanie, is graduating at the end of this month, and I decided to make a couple graduation decorations.  The picture I took of both decorations didn't turn out very well, so I'm including a picture of each project under it.  It's hard to take a picture of a banner and make it look good.  One good thing about this project is that you can customize it to the specific school colors of your grad to make them feel special!

I also have great news!  I have a one month subscription to give away to someone for May!  If you would like to get the illustrated, step-by-step instructions for this project, and the other wonderful projects for May, just leave a comment beginning with this post and ending with the post on May 15.  You'll get an entry into the drawing for each day between May 9-15 you leave a comment.  I'll draw the winning name, and announce it next Wednesday, May 16!  The more days you comment, the better your chances at winning.  I look forward to hearing from you!




If you would like to learn how to make these graduation projects, you'll want to subscribe for the month of May.  With your subscription, you'll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for 10 wonderful projects for only $10!  You can find out how to gain access to a bonus project over at Craft Project Central.

This cute little K-Cup Caddy holds six K-Cups perfect for gifting for Father’s Day, for end-of-the-school year teacher gifts, for your co-workers, boss, etc.!
