Happy Easter Scrapbook Page

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Large Letter Framelits #141712, Flourish Thinlits #141478, May Flower Framelits #140276, created by StampinScrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I have to first start off that I have the hardest time taking pictures of my scrapbook pages.  I am going to have to practice this a lot.  I also have to tell you that I used retired paper for this layout.  You can use any designer series paper you have, I was trying to use up some of my many drawers of paper.  I loved the colors of these papers together.  I got inspiration for this layout from one I saw on Pinterest.  I changed it up a little bit for what I wanted.  

Just like the one I did last week, click HERE to see it, I used a piece of designer series paper and cut it to fit on both pages.  Someone had suggested on my Facebook page, Stampin Scrapper, that if you turned the page a quarter turn you would get a whole new look.  I never thought about doing that, but they are right.  

The measurements for this layout are:

Middle Section:

Early Espresso 

  • 8 1/2" x 11" cut at 4 1/8"

Calypso Coral

  • cut at 4" x 10 3/4"
  • cut at 2" x 10 3/4"

Baked Brown Sugar (retired color)

  • cut at 2 1/8" x 10 3/4"

Left Page:

Early Espresso 

  • cut 2 at 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"

Soft Sky (retiring)

  • cut 2 at 4 1/8" x 6 1/8"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 12" for scallops

Mint Macaron (coming back in the new annual catalog)

  • cut at 2" x 12"

So Saffron

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 5" for the two small flowers

Right Page:

Early Espresso

  • cut 4 at 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Soft Sky (retiring)

  • cut 4 at 3 3/8" x 3 3/8"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 12 for scallops 

Mint Macaron (coming back in the new annual catalog)

  • cut at 2" x 12"
  • cut at 3" x 3" for the big flower

So Saffron

  • cut at 3" x 3" for big flower

Whisper White

  • cut at 3" x 3" for the big flower

For the letters I used scraps of Early Espresso cardstock and cut them out with the Large Letters Framelits.  For the big flowers I used the May Flowers Framelits and for the small flowers I used the Flourish Thinlits.  To finish off the flowers I put a Rhinestone (the biggest size in the package) and added it to the center of each one.  

For the scalloped edges under the Mint Macaron pieces there is a thinlit in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits that is perfect for it.

When I am looking for inspiration for my cards, scrapbook pages and other projects I go to a variety of places.  I google images of a certain stamp set I want to use, Pinterest, Facebook groups, blogs, Split Coast Stampers, magazines, books, just to name a few.  For this layout I saw a card with designer series paper punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch all over the front of it.  Now, that would have been a lot to do the whole page, but I thought it would look great as a border.  

I really like how it grounds this page.  There are so many colors in the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper, which made it fun to work with.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set, Picture Perfect Birthday.  I stamped it in Memento Black ink and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  The bottom layer of the sentiment is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut with Layering Oval Framelits.

For the balloons I used other designs from the same paper pack and White Bakers Twine for the string on them.

I have a little trick to line up the border.  See the picture below.

I put them down in this order to make sure they were even.  Yep, my OCD was kicking in.  LOL 

  1.   Put it in the center of the paper with the point on the 6" mark.
  2.   Put the edge of the piece even with the edge of the black 12 x 12 paper.
  3.   Center these pieces between #1 and #2. 
  4.   For your second row you will put the center point in the center of the space between the pieces in the first row.

When I was at OnStage this month and I saw this suite I immediately wanted every product that was in it, especially the paper and the embellishment kit.  The embellishment kit comes in this beautiful box, that you will want it just for the box.  I know I did!  

I saw the inspiration card this week and thought it was a perfect card to showcase the new Share What You Love suite in the new annual catalog.

Do you see three of the different patterns of paper in the Share What You Love Specialty designer series paper?  I can't tell you enough about this paper, it is so pretty.  The papers in this pack are all hand painted designs with 4 of the designs having a translucent, pearlized finish.  The paper shimmers when you move it around.  They are just beautiful! 

Then the embellishment kit, oh my goodness!  I used the pearlized thread and rose from the set and there is so much more in it.  There are 2 sizes of labels, baker's twine, silver paper clips, and the new Grapefruit Gove color paper clips.  I can't wait for you to see them in person.

I won't have a list of products used because they are not available until June 1st.  I know you hate waiting, so do I, but this will so be worth the wait!

Over the weekend I had gone to Michigan to celebrate my mom's 85th birthday, see our daughter, Erica and also be with my mom on Sunday.  Sunday was the 30th anniversary of my dad's death.  Our family was changed forever, and he is still missed as much today as he was 30 years ago.  It was an emotional weekend, happy times and tough times when I would remember different things about him as I would be driving around.  I still can't believe it has been 30 years.  Wow!

I had a great time with Erica and my family.  We were being silly on Thursday night in the hotel room.  As a kid I would always make the girls wear matching clothes, which they didn't like, so Erica thought it would be great if we had matching pajamas.  Here are some pictures of us having a fun.

I love making memories with my family.  Here are a couple of more pictures from our weekend.

This is part of my family.  My two brothers and quite a few others had already left when we decided to take pictures.  Some of my family was unable to make it.  It was a great time!

You know how sometimes you just can't find the right sentiment, so what are you going to do.  I decided to create it on the computer and print it out on our Whisper White cardstock. 

I am headed to Traverse City, Michigan to see our daughter, Erica, and my mom.  I am so excited!!!  I can't wait!  If you get a chance, please say a prayer for me for safe travels as I am suppose to get into some snow on my way there.

When I started looking at the inspiration card I knew I wanted to use retiring products.  I wanted to give you another idea on how to use the beautiful paper Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. For the base of my card I used Marina Mist cardstock that is also retiring.  I am going to miss all three of these products. 

Here is my inspiration card:

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Marina Mist (this color is retiring)

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Berry Burst 

  • cut at 3/8" x 2 1/2"

To get the banner cuts on the end of the two banners I used the Classic Label Punch, but you can also use your scissors. 

This is a great layout to use for any occasion and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set has 24 different sentiments which is perfect.

Life has been really crazy since I got back from OnStage.  On Monday I had a doctor's appointment with an ENT as I have been having problems with ringing in my ears.  I have to go through more testing, but I did learn that I have some permanent hearing loss in my left ear and my right ear is not far behind.  I have to admit, I have taken this news hard.  I am having more test next Tuesday and hopefully this will show more of what is going on.  

Then on Thursday night I got a phone call from my sister that my mom was taken to the hospital via the squad.  Her blood pressure was 215 over 110.  Talk about scary.  It was caused from the cough syrup she was taking .  My mom is doing great now, thank God!  I am heading up to Michigan on Thursday to spend time with Erica and my mom and help her celebrate her birthday.  I can't believe that my mom is going to be 85!  It will be great to see my family!

Lets talk about OnStage!  It was so much fun!  I got to walk across the stage for being a demonstrator for 5 years and for promoting to Silver Elite.  I had so much fun!  I can't wait to go again in November.  There was also great sadness that weekend.  One of my best friends, Cathy, got to Milwaukee on Thursday and Mary and I were driving up on Friday.  We couldn't wait to spend the weekend together!  We got a call on Friday morning from Cathy that her husband had passed away during the night and she had to get home.  Talk about total shock and my heart was and still is breaking for her.  I can not imagine what she is going through.  If you get a chance please say a prayer for her and her family.  They have a lot to go through over the next few weeks and months.

So, the last week has had a lot of emotional days, but I know God is in control of all of the situations, so I trust Him that He has the best plan for all of us.

Stampin' Up! Color Revamp and Last Chance Products!

Unnamed

While I was at OnStage Stampin' Up! announced that there will be a Color Revamp for the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I love the new colors, the returning in colors and I have to say I even agree with most of the colors that are retiring.  I know some people don't like change, but I think you are going to actually love this change.  The new colors are so beautiful.  Would you like to see the new colors?  Here they are: 

30531106_10213915822162176_2851632704271679488_o

Here are all the details of the Color Revamp:

  • You will notice that Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White are not in the picture above.  That is because now they are in there own category called basics.  The colors of Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navyhave been added to the Neutrals.
  • Did you see the returning retired in colors?  They are Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow and Poppy Parade.  Yay!  Some of these are my favorites. 
  • The Brights are really bright now which is perfect for Spring and Summer.  The new ones are  Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green. Gorgeous Grape and Poppy Parade.   
  • Subtles have the most new colors.  They are Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Mint Macaron, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather.
  • Regals have two new colors, Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss. Did you notice that some of the brights are now in the regals? What fun!

With the color revamp this was the perfect time to also change up our ink pads for the better.  The new ink pads have the same type of pad, foam, but with a defoamer added.  This will stop the bubbles that happen sometimes with the refills.  They have three huge features that I am really excited about.  The first, is that they are easier to open and second, they are stackable!  Yes, stackable!  They will take up a lot less room now.  The third is that they now will have a sticker that you can put on the inside of the ink pad so that when the pad is open you will be able to tell what color it is.  This is perfect for when you have multiple ink pads open.  This way you won't accidentally put a stamp that has Blackberry Bliss on it in the Daffodil Delight ink.  

Another great feature of the new ink pads is that they will still fit in the Color Caddy.  Yay!  

The ink colors that are retiring are:
Always Artichoke
Chocolate Chip
Elegant Eggplant
Island Indigo
Marina Mist
Perfect Plum
Pink Pirouette
Rose Red
Soft Sky
Tangerine Tango
Tempting Turquoise
Wild Wasabi
Wisteria Wonder 

Archival Ink: 
Basic Black 
Basic Gray

2016-2018 In Colors:
Dapper Denim
Emerald Envy
Peekaboo Peach
Sweet Sugarplum

Did any of your favorite colors retire?  I have to admit I am a little sad about Marina Mist retiring.  I use that color all the time.  I know I will fall in love with the new colors and forget all about the old colors.  Especially since the new colors are so pretty.  Would you like to see the new In Colors?  Here they are:

30629024_10213915824162226_3636749234172067840_n

They are so bright and cheery!  I keep thinking of all the different color combinations I am going to be able to make with all the new colors mixed with the current colors.  

Don't forget to get your refills for your ink pads and cardstock in the retiring colors.  For a complete list of products that are being retired click the links below.

I have been waiting to share this project with you since I finished them.  I had to wait until I gave them to my roommates at the Stampin' Up! OnStage before I could put them on here.  I had so much fun making these and creating the different aspects of it.  I got this idea from Cayleigh May when I saw it on Facebook.  

I had to change the measurements a little as she made hers with metric measurements.  I know I will be making more of this in the future.  

Here are some pictures of the inside and how I decorated it.  This project is too long to write out the measurements and directions on here.  I am going to try and do a video of this along with the embossing paste project in the near future.  I will say, it will probably be in May before I get a chance to make them.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper #145564, Mini Album, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com

This is the inside of the album.  On the left hand side you have two pockets where you can put ticket stubs or attach things to the pieces of decorated cardstock.  I put two of them in each pocket and held them together with little clothespins.  On the front of the green pocket I put the event we are at this weekend.

On the right hand side is the mini album part.  There are nine different flaps that I decorated and you can add different pictures or quotes to.  Here is a collage of the flaps.

I can't wait to see what they think of them!  Wouldn't these be fun to make for different occasions and give them away as gifts?  I am going to have to remember that!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a great weekend.

Picture Perfect Birthday

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set #145519, Picture Perfect Party DSP #145559, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch #133324, Banner Triple Punch #138292, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The last couple of months at my Stamp Camps I have been creating projects using one stamp set.  That way I can show my ladies different ways to use the stamp set, designer series paper, embellishments and framelits.  Last month we did the Picture Perfect Party Suite.  

This is an easy card that is colorful and cheery!  Anyone would be happy to receive this card from you.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock

Berry Burst 

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Whisper White

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper 

  • cut at 2" x 5 1/2"

I always tell my customers to stamp first and then punch or cut out with framelits.  This is one time that I told them to punch first and then stamp.  The reason is, you need to know where to put the sentiment on the tag and it is easier to already have it punched out.

The Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon is so beautiful.  I think this might be my favorite ribbon in a very long time.  I am so happy to let you know that this ribbon will be carried over to the new annual catalog.  Yay!!!  

I popped up the tag and added the Tutti Frutti Sequins and Bakers Twine bow to finish off the card.

This is going to be a short post as I am still trying to finish up things for my trip to Milwaukee for the Stampin' Up! OnStage.  I have had to do things a little slower this week as I hurt my shoulder on Monday night.  I really think my body is starting to give out from picking up all my precious angels for the last 29 years.  My shoulder is doing much better today, but I still have to be real careful of what I pick up with that arm.  

I hope you have a great day and weekend!  Don't forget to check out pictures over the weekend on my Facebook page and Instagram.

One thing I like about CASEing Tuesday's is that you get to use products that you have neglected for awhile.  Also, we get a date and then, we get to pick the card we want to use for our inspiration.  This week it was my turn to pick.  If you know me, you know I love coffee.  All I drink is water and coffee, so I have become quite the coffee snob.  

So, when I first saw the stamp set, Coffee Cafe', it was the first on my must have list.  With the other new catalogs coming out it kind of got neglected for a while.  I chose this picture so I would get out this set and start using it again.  I love all the products in the Coffee Break Suite and used some of them on this card.  

Here is my inspiration card:

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Pear Pizzazz

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Whisper White 

  • cut at 2 1/2"  x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 1 1/4" x 2 1/4" for the lids
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
  • cut at 2" x 5 1/2" - you will want to cut it a hair below the two inches
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

This is an easy card that is fun to make.  I used the Banner Triple Punch for the dark brown banner.   You are going to want to cut it just a hair under 2 inches so that it will slide right into the punch.  All the patterned paper is from the Coffee Break designer series paper.  I love how everything coordinates.

I stamped the big coffee cup with Soft Suede ink and Pear Pizzazz ink for the sentiment on the outside of the cup.  The lid was made from a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I adhered the small coffee cup with snail, but popped this corrugated heart.  This little heart came from the Corrugated Elements that coordinates with this suite so well.  The big coffee cup is also popped.

On the inside of the card and on the envelope I stamp a coffee cup with a lid.

Yesterday we woke up to the most beautiful snowfall I have seen in a long time.  Yes, it is April and Spring, but I think Mother Nature is a little confused right now.  LOL  Here are some pictures I took look out our sliding glass door in the back of our house.

The pictures really don't show how beautiful it was out this morning.  The sun was coming up and making the snow sparkle.  I don't want so, but if I have to have it, I am glad God made it so stunning.

I am so excited!!! On Friday I am leaving for Milwaukee for the Stampin' Up! OnStage conference.  I can't believe that I get to go to the special dinner on Friday night too.  I am still in shock.  I will get to also walk across the stage for my 5 year anniversary and for my promotion to Silver Elite.  I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning.  LOL  

The best part of going is seeing all the wonderful friends that I have made on this journey with Stampin' Up!  I have to say, most of my best friends are fellow demos.  I would not have met any of them if it wasn't for my decision to become part of the Stampin' Up! family.  I am so thankful!  

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and stay warm!
