Hooray It's Your Day No. 4

Hello Friend-o!

Well this is it, the last of the Hooray It's Your Day cards. This kit that will be available for order on January 6, 2015, is $24.95 and creates 20 cards (and envelopes). The posts about the other cards were on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
 


The file folder style card is pretty great. The outer part is pre-printed with the Petite Wild Wasabi chevrons. I've spritzed some Daffodil Delight on the bottom.
 

To review, below is a picture of the lot of them. I haven't made the envelopes yet, but there are four colors of envelopes: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi.
 

Enjoy!

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Hooray It's Your Day (photopolymer $13.95)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi
Everything else came in the kit!  Wood pieces, Glimmer Paper, Decorative Masks (stencils), spritzers and more!

Hooray It's Your Day No. 3

Hello Friend-o!

This is the third card style (of four) from the Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit. To see the first and second cards from the same here, click here and here.
 


I made three boy versions of this card and two girl ones. The wood pieces make this card. The example from the directions only shows the girl version, but I had plenty of wood stars left from the other cards and created the boy versions.
 

The scalloped background is spritzed. This time with Wild Wasabi Ink. The kit included this scallop decorative mask (read: stencil). I'll have to use that again and again.

Enjoy!

Hooray It's Your Day No. 2

Hello Friend-o!

Here is my second card from the new kit, Hooray It's Your Day.  This one is cool because I got to spritz on pre-embossed paper to make the background.
 


I like to tag with the glimmer paper and the washi tape. The kit comes with five stickers of each digit so you can put any age on the card.
 

This card also is different than the others because it is a gift card holder.  I am also showing the inside greeting here.
 

 
And with a card to show how it holds one.
 

This card is one of five identical ones that you can make with the Hooray It's Your Day kit.  The kit has four different card styles and makes a total of 20. See Monday's post for the first set of cards.

Enjoy!

It's Paper Pumpkin Day!

Hello Friend-o!

My new paper pumpkin kit came today and though I didn't get home until after 8:00 I still had time to put one of these babies together. The kit is called All Shook Up, which is appropriate because you get supplies to make NINE cards of three styles.  Here's the first version:
 


Everything I needed came right in my little red box. I can make three thank yous, three birthdays and three hello cards with this kit.
 

Are you thinking about getting a Paper Pumpkin Subscription? or buying a Prepaid gift for someone on your list. Contact me! I'll help you out!

Enjoy!

All I used came in the December 2014 All Shook Up Paper Pumpkin Kit!

Hooray It's Your Day No. 1

Hello Friend-o!

I spend much of Sunday listening to the Seahawks game and stamping.  I worked on my new Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit (AVAILABLE JANUARY 6, 2015). I made all 20 cards just as the kit's directions instructed. I love them. They are going to be great for the spring birthdays! This is the first set of cards I made.
 


The kit is designed for more experienced stampers than some of the other kits. The baloon's glimmery poofs swing around a bit and I got to used a decorative mask and stencil to create the background... (and use the mask on other cards forever!)
 

I love the little wood pieces that came with the kit. The only thing I added was the coordinating stamp set and the inks. The kit makes 20 cards in four different designs. Here are the first five. Inside it says "It's all about you today," so really this could be a congratulatory card as well as a birthday card.
 

Enjoy!

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Hooray It's Your Day (photopolymer $13.95)
Paper: All from the Hooray It's Your Day Project Kit
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
Extras: Wahshi Tape, Wood Bits, Baker's Twine and Spritzer (THAT ALL CAME IN THE KIT!)

Fun with Family and NEW STUFF!

Hello Friend-o!

I had a fun weekend with my family which is why my posts have been off this week!  I should be all set for next week though, so never fear. First off, my thirteen year-old is super cute. He got braces this week and is in a somewhat weakened condition (so that means he's talking to him mom about important stuff). His new love interest had a birthday that he wanted to acknowledge, but he missed it when he was out getting braces. So, he picked out the perfect gift for her (four Snapple Peach Teas... he's in middle school). He also wanted me to make a card (funny is better than mushy). Here's what she's getting fresh from the new catalog...
 


Coop especially liked the Crystal Effects on the eyeballs and horns. Unfortunately, that doesn't show up very well in the photos I took, but what else is new.  Or maybe he liked the look on the llama's face. I personally am partial to the chicken.
 

The background is from a stencil that came with a new card kit that I'll start showing tomorrow. I made all 20 of that kit's card as prescribed and am looking forward to showing them off this week.

Enjoy!

Sorry I'm late!

Hello Friend-o!

I've been having fun with the family today and didn't get my post up last night because the neighbor ladies stayed late holiday-ing. So here I am. Late.  I went back to a kit since those are such an easy way to make an attractive card quickly.  This kit is the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit.
 


In addition to the card kit, I used the Fab Friday Challenge Blog to get going on this card.  I sponged the kit's holly leaves in Old Olive and grabbed some Cherry Cobbler paper from my stash to make sure I got all five of those challenge colors in there.



This kit is still available through the beginning of the year, so get it soon. If you order online, please use
Hostess Code: 6GA46GCM


Enjoy!

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Watercolor Winter Too (photopolymer $11.95)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler
Extras: Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit, Owl Builder Punch (holly berries)

Power Outage and Parties!

Hello Friend-o!

We had quite a power outage last night during prime stampin' time, so I didn't get a project made. Today I am working and tonight I am having the neighbors over for a party, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to post any awsome projects.

Please forgive me. I'll still try to get one up later tonight though.

Enjoy!

Presents!

Hello Friend-o!
 

I made presents for my downline. They'll be getting them today, so I hope they don't read this until later!  I love presents and pretty boxes make 'em better. I haven't made the tags yet, but wanted to post anyway.


I made that box with my envelope punch board. Here's what they'll get (along with some tissue, when they open the boxes.
 

What the heck is that thing?  It is a funky glimmer paper ornament. See?
 

I would have made more, but I'm out of glimmer paper. My box isn't here yet and I needed to get these out.
 

I'd like to say I came up with this idea on my own, but I didn't. I saw Cindy Schuster's post on her site Nutmeg Creations and got inspired.

Enjoy!

Laura

Here's what I used:
Paper: Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Extras: 1" circle punch, Silver Satin Ribbon, hot glue gun
