Any Occasion Shower Card for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Mine has been very productive and filled with lots of stamping so far.
Today marks the start of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps:




I decided to create a gender-neutral baby shower card...

I inked up my Any Occasions Sale-a-bration set for the first time (*gasp*) to create this one. It is one set that I just haven't had a chance to get to until now. It sure is fun to play with, though! I die-cut a Whisper White tag using the Lots of Tags framelits and then went to town stamping lots of fun little banners using Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz inks. I added a few little pearls to some of the banners and love the way they look. I layered my label on a lace doily and then on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed using the Large Polka Dots TIEF. The card is built on a Crumb Cake card stock base.

I used the Umbrella Weather framelits to die-cut the sweet little umbrella. I used Crumb Cake card stock for the handle, some Tasty Treats DSP for the umbrella and a bit of Calypso Coral card stock for the trim. I adore these framelits and definitely need to show them MORE love in the next little while.

This colour palette offers so many possibilities! Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's projects and then have a go at it yourself. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a super Sunday!

The Smallest Things

Happy Wednesday! I LOVE short weeks! I hope your week is going well.

The big news this week is the release of three new Sale-a-bration products...available FREE with a $60 order! As if Sale-a-bration weren't already fabulous enough, check out these beauties...



Any of these products can be yours with a $60 order from my online store or through me directly.

Now for a project. I was working on designs for upcoming events this weekend and came up with this sweet baby card using the Carousel Birthday stamp set...

I began by stamping the carousel horse image in Crumb Cake ink on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock, stamping off once each time for a faded look. That lace behind the sentiment is actually one of the images from the Delicate Details SAB set that I heat embossed in white. I love the way it looks 3D...like actual lace!

The sentiment is from the Layering Love stamp set from the Annual Catalogue. I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White card stock and die cut it using the Stitched Shapes framelits. I added another carouselt horse stamped in Mint Macaron ink, stamped off once again so that it wouldn't take away from the sentiment. I layered the white oval on a scalloped oval cut from Cupcakes and Carousels DSP. So soft and pretty. The only embellishments here are a bit of  Mint Macaron ribbon (retired from the Holiday Catalogue) and a Sending Love wooden embellishment. The entire card is built on a thick Whisper White card stock base.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Better Together stamp set in Crumb Cake ink and added a couple of little flourishes from the Cupcakes and Carousels set in Mint Macaron.

I really love the soft vintage vibe of this project.

All Year Long

Happy Monday! It is a long weekend here and I am LOVING the extra day. It just makes everything so much more relaxed, doesn't it?
Tonight I am hosting my montly Project Life Club, so, in honour of Memory-keeping Monday, I thought I would share the layouts we are doing...

I think this may well by one of my favoutire layouts of all time. I absolutely love these photos of Max and my mom. The titles on the cards (from the All Year Long card kit) and the additional stamped title I added on the upper left card are the perfect complement to these treasure images. In case you're wondering, the aforementioned stamped sentiment is from the Layering Love stamp set. I added a die-cut swirl in silver foil using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.


This one once again features several cards from the All Year Long card kit, but also several 2" x 2" cards from the coordinating accessory kit as well. If you aren't in the habit of purchasing the accessory kit that goes with your Project Life by Stampin' Up! card kits, you're missing out on tons of creative possibilities! The title card on the left-hand page was originally a plain black card, but I didn't want quite that much black on my layout, so I cut out the title using the Lots of Labels framelits and layered it on a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed with the (retired) World Traveller TIEF and added silver accents to with silver heat embossing. I also created an additional filler card on the far left using the Places You'll Go stamp set.


One of the things I love most about the All Year Long card kit is how versatile it is! There truly are cards suited for just about any occasion. Here I created summer-themed layouts using cards and items from the accessory kit. I added a die-cut sunburst accent behind the title card on the left-hand page using the Sunburst Thinlits and added stamped rays with the Everyday Hero stamp set. I also added a shaker card to the page using cards from the kit, a piece of Window Sheets and some (retired) gold mica flakes. On the right-hand page I had too many landscape-oriented photos, so I cut them down to 3-3/4" squares and mounted them on 4"x 6" pieces of Delightful Dijon card stock. I love the added colour it gives to the layout.

This last layout captured a weekend visit to "A Day Out With Thomas". It was super-hot day, so we didn't take many pictures, but there were enough to put together this fun layout chronicling our adventure. Once again, I had too many land-scape oriented photos (these were taken LONG before I started scrapbooking and became aware of how important it is to take every photo in BOTH orientations!), so I cut down a couple and mounted them on Basic Black card stock. I love the little hashtag in the upper right corner, created using the letter stickers in the accessory kit.

As much as I love creating fun layouts using Project Life by Stampin' Up! products, I think my favourite part is reliving the memories each precious photo holds.

Have a marvelous Monday and a super week!
