Sweet Angel

Today's project shows how versatile our products are. This sweet little angel was created using the new Gift Bow Bigz L Die found in the Holiday Catalog. This die is designed for making 2 different sized bows, great for your Holiday gift wrapping. The largest bow measures 3-3/4" x 1-3/4".

This little angel measures approximately 4-1/4" x 4". She was created using the parts from the smaller bow. I love how she turned out, and now I want to decorate a whole tree with sweet little angels! I have made several more, using different color combinations. They're kind of addicting!

I'm considering putting together a Step-by-Step Tutorial, and posting it here on my blog. She is really easy to make, once you've seen how to do it. Please leave me a comment here, if you're interested.

One Week Only & Merry Banner

25 Stamp Sets 25% Off One Week Only!

Click on the picture above to see the list.
Order online from my website, or contact me!

Today's project is my Merry Banner. This was created using the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit. I love the Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit in the Holiday Catalog, but I wanted a banner with traditional red & greens, so I designed my own using the Season of Style Designer Series Paper and various stamps from the Holiday and Annual Catalogs.

The color I chose are Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip. First, using the templates that come in the Banner Kit, and Sponge Daubers, I inked the backgrounds on the canvas banner pieces. Then, using Chocolate Chip ink, I stenciled the letters.

The rosettes were created with 2-1/4" strips of DSP 18" long. You'll need to cut two 12" pieces. Cut the second piece in half. Glue the 12" and one 6" piece together, end to end, creating an 18" strip. Score your strips every 1/2", accordion fold, and assemble your rosette. Decorate with your favorite stamps, embellishments, and ribbons and you're done!

Here is a close up of some of the detail. Notice the Red Rhinestone. Did you know that you can color your Basic Rhinestones and Pearls to coordinate with any project color? Using a Sharpie Marker, color your rhinestones or pearls before you adhere it to your project, let dry and viola! Beautiful color coordinating bling!

This is September's Paper Pumpkin. I made one card per the directions in the kit, and decided to do something a little different. Using the supplies in the kit, and adding some extra card stock, Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon and Candy Dots, I created this adorable 8x8 scrapbook page!

The "you're amazing" stamp is from the Amazing Family stamp set. There are other words on the stamp, so I just used my Midnight Muse Stampin' Write Marker to color the words I wanted.

I love getting my surprise box in the mail each month! You can enjoy a 30-minute get-away each month too when you join My Paper Pumpkin.
