Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Notecards!

These cards were made with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die. You can do the treat bag like an envelope and it will fit into an A-2 envelope. These were a real joy to make.  I made another type shown below using the Tab Punch for the inside card.

Stamp Set: These are from the April Paper Pumpkin. The For You comes with the thinlits.
Paper:  Best Year Ever retiring June 2nd,  Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Whisper White.
Ink: Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral I sponged around the "for you label".
Accessories: 2 3/8 scallop punch, 2 3/4 circle and 2" circle punch and the tab punch (retired).  Snail Adhesive, Calypso Coral ribbon, Coastal Cabana ribbon and Stapler and staples.  This was a fun project.  If you have any questions please email me.  Will be glad to answer any question.

Happy Stamping and Crafting,

Sketch Card

This card was done for a sketch I wanted to join. The card stock for the base of card is  Strawberry Slush and the ink on the sentiment HI is Strawberry Slush ink.  Different colored strips were cut and ends flagged and adhered to card in varying lengths.  Flowers were punched in same colors and glue dotted to the card and rhinestones were added to the center of each flower.  The layered DSP is from All Abloom 133703, retiring June 2nd.  For the flowers I used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack 133787. I think this turned out to be a very colorful cards. Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Daffodil Delight card stock was used for the banners or flags (don't know what every one calls them.) I hope you enjoy and remember the new catalog will go live on June 2nd.  If you need any of the retiring product you must act fast because it is first come first gets it.

Birthday Day Gift Card Holder

I got this idea for a gift card holder on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts site.  There is no gluing at all on this card.  It is just a matter of how you fold it.  Then  I used the stamp set Balloon Bash 137144  that was in the summer mini and will be available only until June 2nd.  We have two new ones coming out in the new annual catalog that would be perfect for sentiment and that is Amazing Birthday and Birthday Blossoms. These will be available June 2nd.  Back to Black DSP 133700 was used to fold into gift card holder.  Whisper White 100730 was used for the sentiment and it was stamped twice once in Black Momento 132708 and then again in Real Red ink and the Celebrate was cut out and dimensions were used to place it on the Whisper White card stock.  I think it turned out real cute and I hope you will go to Dawn's site and check her out here ! She has some wonderful video's!

Congrats Wedding Card

Another wedding card with a different take on it from the one I posted on May 5th on my blog.  I used the same stamp set, Your Perfect Day.  Night of Navy and Whisper White with little flowers in Pink Pirouette.  I just really like this stamp set.  This is an A2 card!  As you can see I didn't use the Pink Pirouette down the middle. On the inside I used the #5 of the Labels framelit (counting from the middle) and stamped the leaves and glued a punched flower to it.  The Labels framelit on the front is the # 3 (from the middle) and I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White and cut it out with framelit and then cut a Night of Navy with same framelit and just turned it another way after embossing it with the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.  The strip down the middle was also embossed with same folder.  Turned out to be a cute card in my book.  Hope you will make some of them.  The wddding season is upon us.  I have 2 invites already.  Love weddings!!

Happiness Jar!!!

Another wonderful idea my grand came up with is the Happiness Jar!  You make the label with saying and then take little pieces of paper and write different things on it and put them in the jar. When Mom or friend is having a bad day they can pull out a happy thought to make them smile.  She is such a caring little grand and love s to make things.  I am not her real grandmother, (step grandmother but have known her since birth), but I think I really instilled in her the love of crafts.  On the lid I did MOM in yellow vinyl from Expressions Vinyl.  The flower label was cut from a  flower punch by Stampin' Up and is retiring. The sun stamped in Daffodil Delight is from a stamp set by Stampin' Up called Kinda Eclectic.  One of my favorite sets.  The yellow ribbon is some from my stash. I put a Dafffodil Delight yellow band around the middle of the jar and glued the flower to it.  Here is a pic of the top of the lid. Pam really liked her gift!  Said she couldn't wait to see what Makayla had written on each sheet.   Really simple and easy project and so meaningful!    Happy Crafting!  Johnnie Sexton

Love Grows Here!

My 12 year old granddaughter loves Pinterest and she wanted me to make her Mom a pot for her birthday.  Very thoughtful young pre-teen.  She saw something like this and I went to work.  I don't have to many fonts yet but I came up with something close.  She liked as did her Mom and that is all that counts.  It is a Navy colored pot from Walmart and I used white vinyl from Expressions Vinyl 651.  I bought the heart pattern from the Silhouette Store and used Frosting for Breakfast for the L, and ve, Comic Sans for the grows and Sylfaen for the Here.  On the rim I put each family members name.  The grands names are on the back. Such a fun project.  Give it a try!!

Happy Crafting,

Kindness You Show

This is a card I received from a lady in Kansas.  She used the Lotus Blossom Stamp set and Sentiment.  It looks like Mossy Meadow Whisper White and Blackberry Bliss card stock and ink was used along with Blackberry Bliss.   I do not know what the DSP is in the background. Just a beautiful card and I really appreciate it Jennifer P.  You are amazing!  Thank you so much. Maybe if Jennifer sees this she will let me know.  The Lotus Blossom set was out during Sale-a-bration and is no longer available.  Let's hope they bring it out sometime again.

Sending Good Thoughts

This card was done for a sketch challenge using Back to Black DSP, Whisper White 100730 and Real Red 102482 and Real Red ribbon.  Stamped sentiment with Black Momento ink 132708. The sentiment is from the stamp set Perfect Pennants 133230 and will be in the annual catalog in June. I used the scallop edge punch that is retiring.   I really like this sketch. Very simple. Oh! yeah and I added some rhinestones to the top and bottom.,  If you need a quick card this would be a good one.  Have a great day!

Shaynas Beach Buckets

My little neighbor came over the other day and wanted me to put a pink S on her blue bucket.  I told her I would be glad to and then she started adding things she wanted on it.  Very specific things. Well, I told my stepdaughter that the blue bucket wouldn't hold everything Shayna wanted, so she went and got a bigger one and that let me put some things on it that I wanted to put on it.  I found the cup at Family Dollar and away we go. Her name is on the bucket in 3 places per her request. Then I decided each piece in the bucket had to have an S on it or her name.  I had the Silhouette Cameo smoking by the time I finished all of these projects.  It was so much fun to plan what to put on each level of this pink bucket Pam bought.  Starfish, beach ball, Sun with glasses and a pink bow, turtle, fish and the words, water, sand, fun, and beach. On the blue bucket the big sun with her pink S, words sand box baby, fish with a pink eye and pink heart, pink crab and a yellow starfish. Then the cup had to be done.  I did this with a light pink starfish and her name in a darker pink.  The seahorse was done in white and dark pink.  All the vinyl was bought from Vinyl Expressions and the shapes are from the Silhouette Store. I added a picture of Megan and Shayna doing their favorite pool time....the hot tub!  She loves being in it with the jets on.

Shayna and Megan in hot tub!
