Berry Basket full of Cards!

Let me start off by posting a little warning: 

This post is photo heavy!  I'm gonna do little talking, and lots of pictures instead!  

So - I created this A.DOOR.A.BULL gift basket, to look like a berry basket and filled it with cards.  I created this entire project with the Mini Memories Simply Created Kit from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  It's meant to be a mini scrapbook, but I just had to do something different with it.  The only things I added were cardstock, ink, stamps and a few sequins.  (the kit comes with large sequins, I added some smaller ones.

I showed you the card above in my last post, so I'm not going to say much about it!

I'll also warn you - it was gloomy today, and that made for some darker pictures than I wanted - Sorry! 

The card above turned out to be one of my favorites.  Which is ironic since in the beginning I really didn't care for it.  Initially, the bottom of this card was meant to be the top.  But I messed up and wasn't paying attention when I glued things down - and stamped the sentiment.  Ya - there's a sentiment under the Floral "Thanks" tag....and it's stamped upside down!  We all just have to figure out how to make it work!

This one has light embossing on one of the Kraft pages that come in the kit.  Yep.  I used those up too.  I also incorporated some of the smaller sequins from the Sequin Trim found in the Occasions Catalog to offset the larger ones that come with the kit.

I'm really found of those "journaling" spots that come in the kit and love the little flowers on them.  *swoon!*  Hoping that it'll be a new DSP coming...wishing and hoping!

There are so many fun elements in the Mini Memories kit - like these gold heart paper clips.  Aren't they cute?  And the little tickets - love! The doilies and the gold vellum come in the kit too!

Here's more of that DSP that I love. Again, I used the kraft paper that came in the kit and die cut the edges with our Finishing Touches Edgelits.  The gold twine also comes in the kit!  I'm serious!  You can't go wrong with this kit - for just $13.95 you get a lot!

For this card I took the little pocket shaped element and stitched it to some of the other DSP to create a real pocket.  Then I created a pull-out for it.  

Here's the last card.  And guess what?  I still have paper and embellishments leftover!!!  

It was really fun to work with this kit in an unconventional way.  Hope you like today's little project.

Love Blooms here....

It was a cold and snowy weekend here in Iowa.  I was pretty much housebound - and my schedule was actually cleared up, because Will's basketball game was cancelled on Saturday.  

That meant I could work on some of the projects on my To-Do list!  
This was one of them.

This one took a little time - partially because I watched Legends of the Fall as I worked on it.  And, pardon me, but it's not one of those movies I can just listen to (I can do that with a lot of shows!)  There is some good eye candy in the movie - probably my favorite Brad Pitt movie ever.  

But let's chat about my project.....

I started off with a 12x12" piece of pine board, and painted it with some "Coastal Cabana" acrylic paint.  I'm not quite sure of the actual color....but we'll stick with Coastal Cabana.  Once that was dry, I adhered several little flowers that I had cut from Gingham Garden DSP.  Yep.  That's right.  I cut them out.  By hand.

I also cut a large "A" with my Silhouette using Melon Mambo cardstock.

I glued the flowers and "A" in place using multipurpose glue.  Then went over the top of the entire board with Mod Podge.

 Last came the task of constructing all of the flowers.  I was able to cut 6 flowers from a single sheet of cardstock using the Spiral Flower Die from Stampin' Up! took quite a few sheets.  

I'm thrilled with the way it turned out - and even more so - is Aubrie....she was in dire need of some artwork in her room.  When I finished her "A" - she exclaimed, "Oh Mommy, it's wonderful!  Me love it!"  Now we just need to get it hung up....

Would love to hear your thoughts!

Gift card tins!

Last week I received my copy of the NEW Spring Catalog from Stampin' Up!  It's to die for.  I was especially taken by a project on the cover of the catalog, and drew inspiration from it to create this gift card tin:

I really like to create these tins, as they can be used over and over and over!  I feel like this one is a bit out of my style's got a lotta stuff on it!  Not my typical clean and simple version.  Guess what tho.....I like it!  I just kept adding bits and pieces until I could say....okay.  Stop.  But I even decked out the inside:

I listed this over on my Etsy Shop if you are interested.  I'm trying to get more things listed over keep watching!

Check back tomorrow for a new Stamp of the Month Kit!

Here, turkey, turkey, TURKEY! guys that know me well, know that I'm not huge into punch art.  But...after I created this owl card, I showed it to the gals at Stamp Club.  It happened to be the same night that we made these same purse dies into bats.  Well, you get a group of gals together that are brilliantly creative, and this little Turkey was thought up.  I just finally got a chance to put the thoughts into action.  (I hope I did it well Denison Gals!)

This actually went together darn quick.  The most time consuming was the corny feathers.  I inked them up with More Mustard and then went right over the top with markers - Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy, and  Cajun Craze.  Because I didn't wipe the corn cob clean of More Mustard first, it seems to have made the colors more uniform.  Punched a couple of circles for the eyes, used the leaf branch from the bird punch for the waddle and the tip of one of the blossoms for the beak.

And, while I don't love punch art usually, I must say....this guy is stinkin' cute!

I covered up all of the layered corn cobs with a big leaf on the back - was just trying to clean that up a bit.

What do you think?  Good little place holders at your Thanksgiving table?  I'd love to hear your thoughts - just leave me a comment!
