Flower Challenge

Today I have a card showcasing Fun Stampers Journey Tagged Pocket die.  The challenge I followed was simply to use flowers. :)

That beautiful flower and stamped flower background were made using FSJ's "Journey Blooms" stamp set.  And the smile sentiment from our "Greet & Shout" stamp set.

I used our Journey Glaze to create the glossy finish on the flower and of course, our yummy FSJ cardstock and inks.  

If you are interested in purchasing any of the products I used on this product visit www.funstampersjourney.com/49 and you can shop to your hearts content through my online shop!  :)

Fourth of July Card!

Hi, everyone!  I was super inspired to create yesterday because my new Fun Stampers Journey order came in!!!  I'm still waiting on the Starter Kit but what I received from my order was just what I needed to get crafty! :)  

Since it is just a couple of weeks away, I was inspired to create a fourth of July card using Fun Stampers Journey "Loads of Fun" stamp set and my newest, most favorite die our "Pocket Card" die template--it's SO cool!!!

Isn't that so fun???  The entire card is a die!!!  You simply run it through your die cutting machine and fold at the scored lines.  I will do a tutorial on this die in the future so stay tuned!  :)  I used our Journey Glaze to add the added gloss and dimension to the hot air balloon.

 I heat embossed the fire works image using clear embossing powder for a subtle design on my top insert and stamped celebrate across the white taped line on the little gift card holder I made to go in the front pocket. 

Of course, you can now purchase any of the Fun Stampers Journey products through me! Simply go to www.funstampersjourney.com/49 and order away! My coach number is 49 if you want to find me that way. If you have any questions or want more info on becoming a Journey Coach shoot me an email and I will be happy to help ya!

Fun Stampers Journey!

Hi, everyone!  I am super duper excited to share my fun news!!!  Spellbinders has teamed up with an awesome paper crafting company called Journey Blooms and together they have started a multi-level marketing company called Fun Stampers Journey.  You have to go and check it out!  They JUST launched their website on June 3rd and I'm excited to say that I am one of their founding "Journey Coaches"!

Fun Stampers Journey will bring you trend setting dies, stamps, paper, inks, and lots more!  As a direct sales company, you can buy whichever products you want directly from me!  Yay!
Soooooo, this is a bit of a stretch for me as far as selling goes (I've never been a part of a direct sales company before!) but I'm excited for the opportunity! 

Go check out my page and tell me what you think of the products listed so far!  Since this is all brand spanking new ( I don't even have my starter kit yet with all my dies,stamps, paper, etc) I don't have a project to show of my own but don't worry, I should be getting my kit soon!

In the mean time, here is a pic of the June Kit of the Month that you can grab:

Go check it all out and tell me what you think!

Happy Crafting!!!

Modern Stationary Banner

Hey! I must apologize for my lack of posts these past three weeks!  We are at the end of the school year and it has been B.U.S.Y!  Lol!  

Today I wanted to post a pic of one of my featured tutorials on the Spellbinders blog, make sure to go check it out HERE.

And here is a different variant of the same banner with a more Victorian feel.

Just curious: Which one do you like better?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ruffles are in!

Hey, there!  A quick post showing the baby shower cake I made yesterday.  

And all I can say is that ruffles are super trendy right now!  This customer wanted and all white cake with ruffles on it and that's what she got.  ;)  The cake was covered in fondant and then decorated with fondant ruffles and fondant bow.  

I keep tossing around the idea of doing some short tutorial videos on some cake decorating techniques but that will most definitely have to wait until school is out!  LOL!

That's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scor-Pal "More than one Score" May Challenge.

Alright everyone, break out your Scor-pal and join us for this month's More Than One Score challenge!  Go HERE to the Scor-pal blog for all the details.  :)  This month's theme is to create a project using more than one score and a stamped image.  

I scored an 5 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2" as shown below.

 For the narrow front flap, score at 1/2" intervals creating a grid.

Using a Fiskars ribbon punch, punch the edge of the flap and thread ribbon through.

Those gorgeous blooms are from a Fun Stamper's Journey stamp set called "Spring Garden" colored with Copics.  :) 

Thanks bunches for stopping by!  I am making a baby shower cake this evening so stay tuned for a cake post!
