Birthday Memories Suite and February Events Schedule

One of my favorite Suites from the Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog is the Birthday Memories Suite.  Bright and cheerful, colorful and very retro.  Loved it from the first time I got to play with it!  With the cold, gloomy winter weather we’ve had so much of lately, I’ve begun to be drawn to our more colorful Suites and decided I had to create a card with this adorable little girl.

Birthday Memories Card

One of the BEST things about Stampin’ Up is how everything is coordinated for you.  The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is the background paper here.  The Birthday Girl, present and floral bouquet were all cut from the Designer Series Paper using the Birthday Friends Framelits Dies with the Big Shot.  The little girl  and the Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon are both mounted on Pacific Point Cardstock, which is one of my very favorite Stampin’ Up colors.  The sentiment was stamped using the Birthday Delivery Stamps Set.  See how it’s all coordinated for you?!  Makes creating beautiful projects so much easier!

I must admit that I came across a picture a couple of days ago that inspired this card.  One of those “long ago” pictures!  Yep, that’s me.

We had a Fun Folds Cards Class and made these cards using this same Suite.  See how bright and cheerful this set is?

And here’s the GREAT thing–the stamps, dies and Designer Series Paper are all three available in a Bundle that saves you 10%.  Purchase this set through March 31st and you’ll get a FREE Sale-A-Bration Item of your choice!

Painted with Love Sampler and Card

Painted with Love Sampler and Card

What a winter we’ve had here in the beautiful mountains of North Georgia!  Arctic cold temps (colder than Alaska!), snow and ice.  But I’ve begun my SPRING Countdown on my Facebook Page, which I’ve done for several years and now have requests for every year.  A fun way to look forward to spring!

But first…Valentine’s Day!!

Painted with Love Suite Sampler and Card

The Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is just so elegant and gorgeous, I’ve loved working with it.  The whole “Love”ly Suite can be found in the NEW Occasions Catalog. I love samplers because they’re just something pretty to create and enjoy, as home decor or a gift.  It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now, and have decided to offer a Class in February.  But today I really wanted to work with this Painted with Love Designer Series Paper to create a Valentine’s Sampler.

One of my favorite things about Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you, which helped inspire me in the design of the Sampler.

Love sampler with logo

I used an 8 X 8 Melon Mambo base.  The Whisper White squares are 2 1/4″.  I used 9 different patterns from the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper cut into 2″ squares.  The accents are a gold Metallic Foil Doily, as well as hearts cut from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies in gold foil, Sweet Sugarplum and Powder Pink.  The large gold foil hearts are the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies.

I also created a coordinating card to go with it, using some of the same products on a different scale.  So easy when Stampin’ Up products are already coordinated for you!

January Class Cards

Despite the weather, we were able to have the Quick and Easy Cards Classes last week and had a fun time creating some cards and a 3D project.

 

 

bloomin love bday card with logoheart box and card with logo

 

We used the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies to create a box decorated with the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Calypso Coral Cardstock was placed behind the die cut image, then the die cut heart was used on one of the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes.  You can fit four of these cute little cards in the box!

The Bloomin’ Love Stamp Set was used on the other card, stamped in Soft Suede Ink.  Strips of Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper provided the perfect background for this beautiful stamp. The sentiment is from the You’re So Inspiring Stamp Set in the new Occasions Catalog.
