Typeset Hooray #TGIFCTD02

Surprise! It is Tuesday and I have a post for you! Have you been checking out the Tuesday Throwdown on TGIF Challenges? This challenge is the most challenging of challenges. Since the supplies is limited, I tend to create really simple cards. You guys always create something amazing, and I love to admire your work!


Above is this month's challenge. The whole idea is to use four of those items and items from the pantry to create a project. You can't add anything else! I decided to focus on the Typeset Designer Series Paper for this project, and I thought it would be fun to re-color it with the ink.


I simply just spritzed the Typeset DSP with Pool Party and Hello Honey ink. So easy and such a fun effect! There isn't much else to this card. The sentiment is from the Bravo Set and is highlighted with a bit of baker's twine and the flags from the Balloon Framelits.

Happy Summer Page - Monday Montage


Hi everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? I had a great time enjoying two of my favorite things - swimming and stamping. I was also staying on top of all the latest news from the Stampin' Up! convention. Now that it is a new week, there is a new Monday Montage blog hop to start the week of right. I missed out on the last hop so I am excited to join again this week!


A couple of weekends ago, I was able to get together and go kayaking with some friends from high school. We don't see much of each other any more, so it was great to spend a day catching up with each other. Obviously a scrapbook page was need to document the day. For the base of the page I used the new Thick Whisper White Card Stock. This card stock is the best for a foundation of a project; it just feels so much more substantial than normal card stock.


The thick card stock was also great for cutting out the hexagons without worrying that the paper would tear. Since you can't fit a full sheet of card stock through the Big Shot, I actually used the Hexagon Hive Thinlit as a stamp and then cut out the hexagons by hand. The pattern from Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper is the first fun and cheerful element on this page. Some different layers provide lots of texture and some visual interest. The "happy" from the Hello You Thinlits is a perfect for title for this page! Overall, from the photo to the details this page just simply makes me happy.

A Simple Shaker Card #TGIFC13

Happy Friday everyone! I feel like I should have a great story to tell you, but I don't. So let's just get right into the project!

http://tgifchallenges.blogspot.com/2015/07/tgifc13.html

The new challenge over on TGIF Challenges is a clean and simple theme. The biggest thing about this challenge is to keep the layers to a minimum. Also, when I think of a clean and simple, I think of a card with a lot of white space.


I might have cheated a little bit with the shaker. Would you consider it to be simple? At least it looks simple. I love how the bright colors of the sequins pop against all of the white. I went with a star shaped window to compliment the stars in the sequins. A sweet sentiment and little bow finish the card quickly.

Tag A Bag Gift Packaging - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to another installment of the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop. This week is the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City, and I am so bummed to be missing out on all the excitement. I know everyone there is going to have a great time and it is great to see what is happening on social media. One of the best traditions of convention is giving little gifts to all of you stamping friends. It just so happens that the theme of this week's hop is gift packaging!


The Annual Catalog has a great selection of products for gift packaging. One of the best is the Tag A Bag Accessory Pack. This little collection of tags and accessories will last you for a long time. You can keep it simple with the Tag A Bag Accessory Pack or step it up like I did with the little tassel made with the tread from the kit. Another awesome gift packaging product are the Kraft Tag A Bag Gift Bags. Paired the the Stamp A Bag Set you can customize these bags any way you want. On these projects I heat embossed the stamped images in gold for an elegant effect. 


The gift bags are also great for little gift boxes. Just score the bag from each end and the bag quickly transforms into a box. My favorite part of this project is the Gold Glitter Clothespins. I used some washi tape to mask off part of the clothespin and used Heat & Stick Powder to adhere the glitter. They are so stinking cute!

A Whole Lot of Brand New #TGIFC12

Happy, happy Friday! Of course there is a new challenge over on TGIF Challenges. This week's challenge is very broad; the only condition is to use something new. You guys  blew us away for last week's challenge, so I can't wait to see what you create this week!

http://tgifchallenges.blogspot.com/2015/07/tgifc12.html

I used lots of new stuff on this project. The stamp set, accessories, some of the paper, and even a color are new to the Annual Catalog. This card was for a new product swap last week, so it is perfect for this challenge.


I love the fun layers on this card! Curling up the corners on some of the layers adds some unique texture. You may have noticed the Corrugated Paper showing up a lot in my projects, and don't expect it to go away any time soon. This paper is my new favorite! To create the messy ribbon look, just gather it in center of a layer and staple it. Remember it is supposed to look messy and carefree!

Head on over to TGIF Challenges to see more inspiration before you join the challenge!
