Just Because circles are fun!

Did you miss me? I am sorry I didn’t post yesterday. This weekend was crazy busy with two birthday parties, having to work my day job on Sunday, grocery shopping and planning for next week’s ‘Summer Fun’ stamp club class!

I finally got a chance to play around in my craft room last night and this is what I made for this week’s Clean & Simple challenge. The color combination was picked from the Color Coach by my daughter. It allowed me to play with different colors I don’t normally put together. I’ll need to do that more often!

Aren’t the circles just FUN? I think so! The ‘Just Because’ sentiment was just perfect for this design too.

RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour – Summer Fun

Welcome to this month’s RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour!

We’re here this month with another NEW THEME! So many possibilities! This month our theme is Summer Fun!! We have a lots of inspiration for you! I hope you sit back, relax and enjoying traveling through the blog tour!

Remarkable Pinworthy Blog Tour

Make sure to ‘Like’ my Pinterest Page and I hope you’ll consider pinning my project!


I don’t know about you but when I think of summer I think of delicious watermelon! Therefore my project for today is watermelon themed! I racked my brain, scoured the Internet for inspiration and decided to make a modified Bag in a Box turned in a Watermelon Beach Bag!

RemARKable


ABsolute HOW-TO:
Bag in a Box

Supplies: Cardstock or Designer Series Paper, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, Paper Snips, Bone Folder, Sticky Strip

Step 1: The bottom of the bag is created from a 4″ x 5.5″ piece of Old Olive scored 1″ around on all 4 sides and folded up to create a box.

Step 2: Take a 4″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper or cardstock of your choice and wrap it around the box.

Step 3: To complete the bottom, adhere a piece of 1″ x 12″ cardstock around the base of the bag.

Step 4: Adhere some ribbon handles with brads and all complete. I added some Old Olive Candy Dots to the Candy Dot Brad Base for the perfect finishing touch!

RemARKable


So I needed something to go inside the bag! How cute are these little 3″ x 3″ cards?

I used the Work of Art stamp set to create the watermelon work of art (thanks to another designer for inspiration)! The watermelon seeds on the bag and the cards were created from the leaves on the branch from the Bird Builder Punch. Too stinkin’ cute!

RemARKable


Here you can see the bag is big enough to fit multiple cards inside making the perfect little gift for someone special! I made 6 but it could easily hold 6 more!

RemARKable


The KREATION featured products:


Stamp Sets: Work of Art (Wood Mount 134111, Clear Mount 134114),

Paper: Old Olive (100702), 2013-2015 In Color Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack (130136)

Ink: Strawberry Slush (131178), Old Olive (100702)

Oh it’s a Starburst Happy Birthday

This week’s Freshly Make Sketch challenge is a fun one! When I saw it I immediately knew that I wanted to use the Starburst Sayings stamp set and coordinating Starburst Framelits (purchase them together and save 15%). The colors of the card were inspired by the Beach House Designer Washi Tape. You know I love washi tape and any excuse to use it is good for me! The sketch just called it out to me!

Starburst Birthday FMS143

I decided I didn’t want the card to just say ‘Oh Happy Day’ but ‘Oh Happy Birthday’. I covered up the ‘DAY’ and stamped the birthday sentiment from the ABsolutely amazing Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set. Topped off the card with a splash of stamped confetti.
