Something New for JAI #139 and DD #24

I am preparing for a craft night at my place tomorrow as some ladies from church are coming around to make something for Operation Christmas Child.  I thought a little post-it-note holder would be a great gift to pop into each box.  So tonight I did a test run using the theme challenge from Just Add Ink which is to Just Add Something New and the gorgeous colour combo from Dynamic Duos #24.

 JAI #139 and DD #24 - Little Friends

The newest purchase for me has been this cute set from SU called, Little Friends.  I coloured the stamped image using Pool Party, Soft Suede and Blush Blossom Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Painter.

 I love the colour duo for this week.

For this sample, I have turned the post-it note holder so the pen is at the top and attached 3 magnetic strips of tape to the back so it can stick to a fridge or magnetic white board.

There are a few great tutorials out there for post-it-note holders but I really like this one from Dawn's Stampin' Studio.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

PS:  Thanks, Allisa, and the rest of the DT for the Honourable Mention.  It is much appreciated.

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink

1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.

This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.

2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.

3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.

4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).

5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp…
