I couldn't resist using sweet Presley Lollipop for my card today. The layout is from the Clean & Simple blog, FTL70, and I love the simplicity of it!

I paper pieced Presley's nightie then coloured the rest with copics. I used the fabulous 'Lollipop Face Colouring Tutorial' from the Stamping Bella forum on Splitcoast. The pretty yellow polka dot paper is Bo Bunny Double Dot, and it's available in every colour of the rainbow! The stitching, ribbon and brown layer all look really dark (almost black) in the photo but they're chocolate IRL. The crocheted flower is from a friend and I added some bling to the center. I didn't want to add in any other colours so I layered the main panel onto kraft before adhering it to the white card base.

I hope to see you on the Bella Hop next weekend!!!

Sweet Sunday Flurry

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC46. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.
I simply couldn't wait any longer to ink up one of my Pure Innocence girls from MFT. Seriously, how can anyone resist these little dolls!!!

And guess what...I have enough Christmas cards for this year so I'm already starting on my cards for next year. How stinkin' cool is that! Now, who knows when I'll actually get them in the mail this year, but they're all made...wooo hooo!!!!

I mostly followed the sketch with this card, but I just couldn't put my circle off-center like the sketch showed. I tried and tried, but it kept sliding back to the center...wink! I stamped Flurry of Love with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White, twice. I coloured one of the images with copics, cut it out and adhered it with foam tape to the base image. I added some white Liquid Applique to her hat and boots and sprinkled some glitter over it before I heated it. I also glittered the falling snow behind her and added three Tiny Twinkles to her jacket.

The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Be Merry. I layered it with Baja Blue, pink and Prism Blush Red Dark. A little stitching and some buttons added just the right detail.

Let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch. I wonder if I'm the only one who just couldn't do the off-center circle. ;)

ETA: Apparently I went awry on this sketch even more than I realized. My printer must have cut off the bottom of the sketch when I printed it because I thought the center square was lined up with the bottom of the base...sigh. So definitely go see the REAL SKETCH on Karen's blog! Hopefully I'll have better luck next week!!!

Bellarific Bloom

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! Today we're headed home from spending this past week in Vermont. We'd been hoping to get in a little early season skiing but Mother Nature had other plans for this week. It was so warm all week that I nearly expected to see spring blooms. But, we did end up going to the movies twice in Stowe...New Moon and The Blind Side. If I had to choose just one to see, definitely The Blind Side. What an amazing story and a wonderful movie!!! Sorry all New Moon was good, but not AS good. :)
Ok, enough chatter...on to my card for this week's Bellarific Challenge. The sketch was provided by my BFF Danabella.

I made the card before we left last week and you'd think I was predicting the weather or something! LOL!! I stamped the Stamping Bella image Daisy with a Ladybug with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured it with copics. I added a little Glamour Dust to the flower then stitched around the edge...confession...I thought my machine was set to a straight stitch so the zig zag caught me off guard...too late to change it though and I like the end result.

For the card base, I ran the patterned paper (from My Mind's Eye Pretty Please collection) through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder then sanded the embossed dots a little to add texture and to expose the white core. I used my threading water punch to accent the green piece then stitched on a strip of red before adding five String of Pearls Baubles. The sentiment is from the Mini Words set.

Here are a few important reminders:
  1. Pop over to Bloggabella to see this week's entries!

Gift Giving Ideas

'Tis the season for Thanksgiving and also the time when everyone starts thinking about gift giving for Christmas. Do you have a crafter on your shopping list? Well how about wrapping up some fun crafting tools in an adorable Tidy Handbag like this one, available at Taylored Expressions!!! It's a storage solution and a gift box all in one!

The Tidy Handbag comes completely unassembled so it's super easy to decorate and glue together. You could personalize one for the crafter on your list in no time flat. I filled this one with some of my paper crafting essentials, copic markers and Stickles!!! Now who wouldn't LOVE a gift as cute and functional as this?!?
Of course I had to create a card to go along with this little gift, so I reached for my Wings of Joy set from Taylored Expressions. I also used Taylor's Sketch Challenge, TESC92, for the layout.
The papers are all from my Berries and Cherries Key Ingredients, and I think they work perfectly for a Christmas card even though they aren't designed for that. This is the same Key Ingredients kit I used to decorate the Tidy Handbag, so it all coordinates. The little bird is completely paper pieced and I gave him a Fruit Punch Stickled hat trimmed with white Liquid Applique. It was a really quick and simple card to whip up!

SALE ALERT!!! Taylored Expressions can help you kick off your Black Friday Christmas Shopping with 15% off the entire store!!! Why fight the traffic and crowds? Save gas and money by shopping at Taylored Expressions this Black Friday. Get the coupon code from the TE Newsletter or from Taylor's blog.

Sweet Sunday Cuppie

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC45. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.
I knew this layout would be perfect to show off an adorable Cuppie from the new Sweet Indulgence set available at Taylored Expressions.

I decided on Cuppie on the lounger because it is just SO perfect with the fabulous sentiment, which reads "I'm good enough, I'm sweet enough, and doggone it people love me!". Isn't that the truth...cupcakes are such wonderful little creations!!!

I started by stamping Cuppie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream. I paper pieced the lounger then coloured the rest of the image with copics. I added a little Fruit Punch Stickles to Cuppie's cherry and I coated the cup and saucer with my clear Glaze pen. All the papers, cardstock and flowers are from the Spa Key Ingredients. I added a little stitching along the edges of the patterned panel and used my Apron Lace border punch to jazz up the pink strip.

Let's see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers created with this fun sketch!

Bellarific Surprise-aBella

Happy Bellarific Friday!!! Today we're celebrating the Bella Character that started our Stamping Bella obsessions (or at least she's responsible for my obsession!!!).
I wanted to use Mercy's Tuesday Sketch, MTSC48, for the layout but the Bella images are all I turned Curly Surprise-aBella into a twinchie!!!! How fun is that!!!!

I started by stamping da Bella with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then cut her out with square Nestabilities that measured 2". Em has these fabulous Twinchie panels in the store, but I didn't order any last time...doh! I coloured the image with copics and popped the presents for dimension. I used my E41 copic all around the image to soften the bright white paper then I stitched the edges.

The white card base measures 3.25 inches by 6.5 inches and I ran the same E41 copic around the outer edge to soften the white again. I stitched some October Afternoon Report Card patterned paper to some Prism Papaya Puree Dark and added a border punched strip. The blue satin ribbon is from my stash along with the Primas and pumpkin Glitter Dot. I'm so glad that my stash of birthday cards is growing again!!!

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella to see all the Sistah's submissions using the Bella Character. And leave a comment while you're may just win some Bella Bucks!!!

Fabulous Fall Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions

It's no secret that I'm a HUGE fan of the Key Ingredients at Taylored Expressions. Everything handpicked by Taylor, perfectly coordinated to make my paper crafting easier! Well, Taylor has done it again! You really need to pop over to Taylored Expressions and check out the amazing new Fabulous Fall Key Ingredients Kits being offered in limited quantities at just $12.95, a spectacular discount. If you've never tried the Key Ingredients, this is your opportunity to try a kit at a discounted price. All the details are on Taylor's Blog so I'll get right down to the cards I made with my Key Ingredients Kit, Winnie's Walls...the colours are so fun to work with!

Each of my cards features supplies from the Winnie's Walls Key Ingredients kit, including all the patterned paper, solid cardstocks, ribbons and rubons. I used the Weekend Sketch 105 for this card and paired it with Celebrate Life. I added a little stitching and some Flower Soft.
On this card I let the rubons be the main attraction and added a sentiment from A Year of Sweet Sentiments. After the sentiment was stamped I wished I'd embossed it to make it stand out a little more, so I added a row of Zva crystals to help draw attention to the sentiment.
And last but not least, a birthday card featuring images from For the Love of Cupcakes. I used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 90 for the layout, and altered it slightly to fit the big 'HAPPY' rubon. I added some Fruit punch Stickles to the cupcake and Multicolour Twinkles to the scalloped circle. I think this card's my fave of the three.
Here's a little more info on these limited edition Key Ingredients kits. There are four kits to choose from...try one or grab them won't be disappointed. I use my Key Ingredients kits often and I still haven't used one up yet! I truly {heart} my Key Ingredients! The kits are versatile for so many occasions and you can pair them with any TE images. Each of these limited edition Key Ingredients will include a full colour inspiration sheet with six samples created by members of the Baker's Dozen!

So quick...go see what the other Baker's Dozen players have created using these Fabulous Fall Key Ingredients Kits then head over to Taylored Expressions and pick some up while quantities last!

Peek-a-boo Pookie!

Isn't this just the sweetest image!!! It's one of the new Lollipop images from Stamping Bella, called Pookie Lollipop, and she arrived at my house recently so I just had to ink her up! I was in the mood for purple so I reached for my favourite purply paper, Penny Lane from My Mind's Eye.
I started by stamping Pookie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and cut her out with circle Nestabilities. Then I stamped her three more times and coloured her with copics. I adhered the first image directly to the white circle so the flowers would go over the edge. Then I cut out the pot, ran it through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and popped it for dimension. Finally I cut out the three small flowers and popped them for even more dimension. The image is layered onto a circle of orchid opulence then onto a Blossom Nestabilities shape of intense kiwi. Oh, and I used Lindabella's fabulous "Lollipop face colouring tutorial" and it was easy peasy!!! If you're nervous about these little Lollipop and their faces, take a look at the tutorial in the Stamping Bella forum on Splitcoast. Here's a shot of the dimension.
The white card base is 5.25 inches square. I layered some intense kiwi and intense teal before adding the patterned paper. Then I used my new-to-me Apron Lace border punch on a strip of elegant eggplant before stitching the layers together. I find the large orchid opulence piece really sets off the image nicely. I never used orchid opulence until I found this Penny Lane patterned paper!!! The velvet ribbon is from my stash...I think it's old SU. I added a little sparkle to the card with three medium lilac Glitter Dots and some purple Stickles.
This week's Bellarific challenge is to use the original Bella Character for your submission. You have until Thursday night to enter, via email to Em, for a chance to win some Bella Bucks!!! Read all the details on Bloggabella.

Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Mini Binder Box

Today some of the Baker's Dozen are spotlighting the Mini Binder Boxes available at Taylored Expressions. They're purpose is for stamp storage but you'll see plenty more ways to use these fabulously sturdy Mini Binder Boxes.
For my project I decided to start a collection of 'Family Favourites' recipes. Wouldn't this make a wonderful shower gift for a new bride? You'll see that I only have two recipes done so far, but that's because I have to get my mom to write down some of my faves instead of just telling me "add some of this and some of that until it looks/feels like this"...ugh! I can't cook that way! Oh, and when I called her to get her super amazing secret recipe for Strawberry Freezer Jam, she told me to look on the inside of the Certo package because it's printed there...seriously?...way to burst my bubble Mom! LOL!!!

If you've never seen one a Mini Binder Box, let me tell you a bit about it. It's made of sturdy clear plastic with a clear plastic film that wraps right around the outside of the binder so you can insert a cover and spine and they're protected. The box is about the size of a hard-cover book, measuring 9.5 inches high by 7 inches wide and has a thickness of 1.25 inches. There's a latch on the outside to keep the Mini Binder Box closed.
Three 'binder' rings on the inside to hold your pages in place. The Mini Binder Box will hold four stamp sets.
But I also use my Mini Binder Boxes to store my Nestabilities. I saw this idea out in blogland and it's perfect for my storage needs. Simply adhere a magnetic sheet (from your local craft store) to the Plain Storage Panel and arrange your Spellbinders dies. I've got about 30 sets of dies in one binder box...a storage miracle if you ask me!

Now on to my Family Favourites recipe box.

I made my cover insert the same size as my recipe cards, with a finished size of 8.5 x 5.75 inches (which is the same size as the Plain Storage Panels). I also kept dimension to a minimum because I wanted to be able to easily slide the cover under the protective wrap, and I'd like to fit as many recipes as possible into my Mini Binder Box. I used my Just Rite Times Roman lower case font to spell out the title and paired it with my September 20th Key Ingredients (after all, the patterned paper is called Kitchen Spice...what could be more perfect!!!).
For the Lemon Meringue Pie recipe card I used the lemon from Chillax, along with some Bo Bunny polka dot patterned paper.
To keep a little consistency in my recipe cards I'm going to back them all with Prism Suede Brown Dark. The images and recipes are on Choice Snow White. Oh, and if you happen to try this pie recipe (it's a lot easier than it sounds) you'll never go back to the boxed lemon pie filling...ever!
For the 300 Stroke Chocolate Cake recipe card I used my September 20th Key Ingredients again and stamps from For the Love of Cupcakes.
This is THE best birthday cake...requested by everyone in my family, and again, so easy to make that you'll never make a boxed cake again. I think the secret is in how much in needs to be mixed, or in the olden days, it needed to be stirred 300 times (now that's a workout!). If you notice on the cupcake, I paper pieced the liner and 'frosted' it with Espresso Dimensional Pearls. I also added some sparkle to the flame with my lemon Spica glitter pen.
I created a spine for my box too and added a little chipboard flower to the outside of the plastic film. I figure dimension is ok on the spine because it won't get caught on anything in my cupboard. There's some Fruitpunch Stickles in the middle of the flower and all I did to the chipboard was colour it with my E09 copic marker.
But wait...I haven't even told you the BEST PART yet!!! The Mini Binder Box stands up on it's own so you can use it to display your recipe while you're cooking. Just slip the recipe under the protective plastic wrap on the back of the binder and it won't get dirty or splashed! Woo Hoo!!
The Mini Binder Box is just $9.95 and does NOT come with a cover/spine insert. The covers and spines are now available as a dowload and Taylored Expressions offers a cover for each of the stamp lines, Lasting Impressions, Stamp a Sweet Impression, and Whimsical Wishes for just $2.49 pay once and print them as many times as you want!
The Mini Binder Box is on sale today and tomorrow for 15% off!!!
It's a great time to stock up and save, to get your your supplies organized, or to get started on those hand made gifts for Christmas!

I {heart} my Mini Binder Boxes and I know you will too!!!

Let's see what other fabulous creations the Baker's Dozen designers have come up with using the Mini Binder Box.

Happy Birthday Nancy!!!

Today is my uber-talented friend Nancy McKinney's birthday and a few of us are celebrating with a little blog hop. In case you don't know Nancy's work, check out her blog Cardworthy. She creates the most gorgeous things and she's a stamp designer too!
For my card I used one of the sets Nancy designed, For the Love of Cupcakes available at Taylored Expressions. Cupcakes are yummy for any occasion, but they're perfect for a birthday!!! The layout is the Weekend Sketch #106.

First thing I did was stamp the three cupcakes with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White. Then I coloured them all with copics and jazzed up the two on the end a little with pink Stickles. I couldn't resist 'frosting' the middle cupcake with Espresso Dimensional Pearls.

I made my card long and skinny, so the white base measures 3.25 x 6.5 inches. I used papers from my Cupcakes Key Ingredients and added a little brown stitching along the edges. A few Multicolour Twinkles add just the right touch.
Nancy, hope your day is a special one!!! Happy Birthday!!!!

Here are some more friends who are wishing Nancy a very happy birthday.

Sweet Sunday Penguin

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC44. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.
I decided to flip the sketch to work with my sweet penguin image. This set, Cool Yule from My Favorite Things, is a new addition to my collection and I just couldn't wait any longer to ink it up!
I started by stamping the penguin with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White, three times because I knew I'd be popping him for dimension. I masked the penguin's feet then stamped the ice block. The fun started once everything was coloured with copics. First thing I did was cover the ice block with Ranger Crackle Accents. I added some Waterfall Stickles to the hat and scarf then finished the hat with white liquid appliquee. The image is cut out with deckle rectangle Nestabilities. Here's a shot of the dimension.
The white card base measures 5.25 inches square. I stitched together a couple shades of blue for the base layer then used my Coluzzle (I know!!! I'm surprised I remember how to use it!!! LOL!!!) to cut the large circle because the biggest size of circle Nestabilities wasn't large enough. I stitched a white border around the edge of the circle then added some MFT Adornments for a blingy frame around the circle. The patterned paper circle has a pretty silver foil swirl running through it and the striped paper has a shimmery swirl. Both papers are from the SEI Glitzma collection. I used my EK snowflake border punch to get the small snowflakes along the left edge of the striped piece and added a Multicolour Twinkle to the center of each one. Then I sent this card over the top with a blue snowflake layered onto a ghost snowflake with a platinum Glitter Dot in the center. Told you there was lots of bling on this card!!!!
Now let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch!!!
