Easter Treat Basket ~ with Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I have a little treat basket to share today – I had planned it to be one of the projects for my monthly card class this week but I cancelled it due to the social distancing we are all currently practicing because of the  Corona virus pandemic.

Because we are all keeping our distance from one another it means we are spending time at home – so I decided to share it on my blog today with a video in the hope you can spend some time making one or two for yourself.

Family Love Garden Lane Sampler

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I love practically any type of papercrafting but I think my most ‘favoritest’  are samplers or  frameart, you can put lots of different items and techniques onto them without them appearing ‘over the top’

The sampler I am sharing today is one of the projects from my annual Stampin Getaway last October and features the serene Garden Lane DSP along with a whole host of punches,dies, ribbons and embellishments.

Pressed Petals Easel Card with Sticky Notes

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is all about my 200th video!  I chose an Easel card fun fold that has a calendar and a pad of sticky notes, so this will sit on your desk for a whole year!

I also used one of the 2020 Sale-a-bration items, the Small Bloom Punch and Here’s a Card Stamp set, that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog as well.  The Pressed Petal Specialty Designer Paper is so very pretty and I have added to the prettines with flowers, leaves, pearls and the very delicate Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  If you love the fold but don’t want to add the calendar and sticky notes I have included an idea for just making the card.   So enjoy………………………………

Garden Lane Decorated Notepads

At the beginning of June I held my Stampin’ UP! 2019 -2020 Catalog launch.  Everyone made a couple of make-n-takes, got their copy of the new catalog and a little gift from me to thank them for coming and their on-going support for my card-crafting business.

The gift was a little decorated notepad showcasing the new Garden Lane Designer Series Paper as well as the new Timeless Label Punch.  This has to be one of my most favorite papers in the new catalog – I just love all the fresh greens and how they all work so beautifully together…….. and don’t get me started on the Timeless Label Punch – I don’t think it has been out of my hands since the UPS man delivered it!

You will have either arrived from  Sue’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME . This month’s theme is MONOCHROME.  I must admit that when the theme was announced I thought I knew what it meant but needed to check – and this is what I found:

“Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue and extended using its shades, tones and tints. Tints are achieved by adding white and shades and tones are achieved by adding a darker color, grey or black.”

OK then, first thing first……….. choose a color

It is still a few weeks before Father’s Day – but if we want to be ready we really need to start now.  Today I am sharing a decorated gift box that would take a number of small gifts, although I have filled mine with Hershey’s nuggets as I know my dear ol’ Pops would have really appreciated chocolate!

The Classic Garage Suite is perfect for this gift box, it has the wonderful Classic Garage DSP, some Metallic Ribbon to go along with the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set with coordinating Garage Gears Thinlets Dies (still available at a 10% discount bundle price until end of May!)
