Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Sorbet is Perfect for Spring Projects!

This week's posts will feature Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper (#133521) and you can get it free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration. I love all the designs and the colors, think spring (and I surely need to do that with all the cold weather and snow we have had in the northeast this winter).  The first card I cased from a card made at Tracey Roy's fundraiser for MS earlier this month. I had a request for a Mother's Day card so I made this Mother's Day card using mostly the same products.

The next item is a cute bag (also frrom the fundraiser) that I made when I got home.  Check out the handles made from the Sweater Trim that has retired.  Last time I checked Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack they still had 3 colors available. Also I had some Simply Pressed Clay flowers left from a previous project and added it for the center of the flower.

I loved that it matched perfectly with a card I had made the week before showcasing the Spirelli technique (I have made several cards with this embellishment, love it) which is a quick and easy wow factor.

If you want to see all of my friend, Tracey's  projects, you can find her on Facebook at Lakeshore Paper Art!  I loved helping everyone using the Big Shot machine for Tracey and look forward to next year's MS fundraiser.

 

In Color Mini Album for Mom

Now you get to see my last Creative Crew project, CCREW0412SF – Scrapbook Inspiration Focus.  Make a mini scrapbook album using the 2010-2012 In Colors and pattern packs. What a nice way to say good-bye to these colors!  I saw an album at a recent fundraiser that intrigued me.  The album was different than any other I have seen. I decided to try making one for this challenge. The binding is called "stack the deck".  Laura Dennison has a video on how the binding is made. I googled her name and "stack the deck binding" to find the directions.

Bordering On Romance Sneak Peek!

Sneak Peek Bordering on Romance – SCS Creative Crew Challenge!

You will be twittering about Stampin' Up!'s new Occasions Mini Catalog once you see it!  It is fabulous!!!!! I love it and am excited to share a few sneak peeks until you can see it online on January 4.

My first sneak peek is from the Twitterpated product Suite. I created this card for one of Splitcoaststamper's January 2012 CreativeCrew Challenges – CCREW112CF.  This challenge has a catalog focus (CF) and I had to use all (only) stamps from my newest stampset on a non-traditional card (not 4 1/4" x 5 1/2") using a different size, shape or fold. Here is my card and matching envelope:

Stampin' Up! Sneak Peel Bordering On Romance SCS CreativeCrew Design Team Splitcoaststampers

I used the following sneak peek items: Bordering on Romance stampset (pg 11);  Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies (pg 7); Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (pg 7); Twitterpated Designer Buttons (pg12); Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (pg13).  Check out how all items coordinate on my card.  Below is a close up of the detail:
