Color Coach Challenge: Pacific Point

Welcome to another week of color coach challenge. Every week the girls from the Sunny Morning Chat are choosing a color from the color coach and following the suggested color combination.

The color this week is Pacific Point.   You saw Carol's take on Pacific Point on  Carol's Blog. 

Here is my take on Pacific Point:

I used Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry. 

I used the fabric from the Floral District collection for the Rich Razzleberry circles.  The circles were created by simply running the fabric through the Big Shot.  The cut the fabric smoothly.

My stamp set is Circle Circus.   I used the stamp set to stamp the background.  

I hope you are inspired to try using the farbic on you scrapbook pages.  It works just like paper :)

Thanks for looking.

Fabric: Creating elements on a card

I am falling in love with the Stampin'Up! fabric.  I will admit that when Stampin' Up! said they were introducing a fabric line I thought they were nuts.

During Sale-A-Bration this year I decided to order the  Flirtatous fabric offered; it was free so i figured no harm no foul.  When my daughter saw the fabric she went bananas for it.  She wanted make all sorts of things with it.  Now I can't get enough of it.

I decided that I would dedicate June to trying new things.  
New catty- new classes :)

Here are two of the cards we made in the Fabric Card Class:

 This is the fabric I used on this project:
Floral District Designer Fabric

Floral District Designer Fabric 126893
Price: $9.95
3 extra-wide fat quarters (27" x 18"): 3 coordinated designs. Cut with select Big Shot dies. Coordinates with the Floral District suite. Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White.

Here are the directions on How to create the card embellishments.

Color Coach Challenge: Rich Razzleberry


One more week of the color coach challenge.  I hope you enjoyed Carol's blog.

This week the color was Rich Razzleberry.  We could combine it with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive or Pretty in Pink and Early Espresso. Since I can not turn down anything to do with coffee ;) I choose the second option.

I started off by looking for everything I own in these colors.  I have been using the fabric a lot lately and wanted to use that for sure.  I also had buttons, brads, and markers in these colors. 

 I looked at this for a long time before inspiration hit :)    Finally, I decided to use the Rich Razzleberry as my base and work from there. 

Here is what I came up with:

The stamp set I used is Papaya Collage, it is new and I really like it.  I think I will add some more fabric flowers- this guy seems lonely :)

Thanks for looking.  Now enjoy Liz's creation :)

You are coming from  Amanda's Blog. A group of us morning chatters over at Butternut Sage Designs have been using the color coach to expand our color horizons.

This week's challenge is REAL RED!  We could either use Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake, or Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie...

Here is my take on Real Red, Early espresso, and Pumpkin Pie:

I used My Digital Studio to create this page.  I love MDS. 
 After I print the page I plan on adding some journaling and embellishments.  That's the beauty of the hybrid scrapbook page :)

  Thanks for looking.

Color Coach Blog Hop: Melon Mambo

Welcome to my blog.  I am participating in my first blog hop, I am so excited.

This blog hop is about using the color coach and this week's color is Melon Mambo.  The color coach gives you ideas for color combinations using Stampin' Up! card stock.  I love my color coach and I refer to it every time I have a creative block :)

My color coach.

I am using the combination of Melon Mambo, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant.  The stamp set is Mixed Bunch.

I created a scrapbook layout using the color combination from the color coach.
Here is a close up of the flowers and the "lattice".  I used the Simply Scored tool for the lattice.  I was going to add leaves but I forgot :)
Thanks for looking.  Pam's Blog is next. Enjoy :)

These are the other participants in the hop.

April Earth Day Projects

So I decided that to celebrate Earth Day I would find things around the house and scraps that I had and create use them on my cards and scrapbook pages.

I gathered scrap paper, old magazines, and used dryer sheets 

In my card class we made 3 cards

I used the dryer sheet to make the flower on this card
 Turns out I have hundreds of used dryer sheets in my house.  I usually use then to dust and remove glitter from my craft table.  I had so many I figured why not try crafting with them.  I cut three circles out of the dryer sheet.  I used a stamping sponge to sponge color on one of the circles.  I used the colored circle in the middle and held all three pieces together with a brad.  I used a dimensional to attach it the card.  Super cute and it smells good.

We made the frame for this card using the scraps I had left from other projects.
First I cut the scrap into stripes and adhered them to a piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 5/1//2

Then I ran ran it thru the Big Shot using the framelits.

For this card I used the magazine to punch out circles and then I matted them on extra card stock.

 It was a nice way to use up my scraps and super easy.
Again, super easy and a great way to use up stuff I horde, I mean store :)

Thanks for looking.  Happy Earth Day.

April Earth Day Projects

So I decided that to celebrate Earth Day I would find things around the house and scraps that I had and create use them on my cards and scrapbook pages.

I gathered scrap paper, old magazines, and used dryer sheets

Here is the first set of scrapbook pages I made .

I used the scrap paper to punch circles

I used the circles to create the border and use what was left the paper for the block.

I also had ribbon I wasn't using and two pieces left from a pack of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock  so I used to make the mats.
Easy peasy, and it was all stuff I already had collecting dust; now it has a purpose :)

The next set of pages use dryer sheets and scrap paper.

I used the nature stamp set because it is Earth Day :)

I used scraps I had from another project to create all borders.  It was just enough paper to cut into strips.

This border punch doesn't need a lot paper, but it creates a big impact.
I made the flowers using dryer sheets
I cut three circles out of the dryer sheet.  I used a stamping sponge to add color to one of the circles.  I layered the circles with the inked circle in the middle and then used a brad to hold it together.  They are super cute and smell great!!!!

Thanks for looking.  Happy Earth Day!!!!!

Stamping Kids Class: Happy Easter!!!!

I focused the month of March on Easter.   The stamping kids created Easter baskets and Easter cards.  Here is what they made.

The kids had a great time. They all wanted to eat the peeps :)

We used the Good Egg Stamp Set, this set is retired.  However, it is available as an MDS digital download.  The kids used the watercolor pencils to color the egg. 

This card was created using the Crosses of Hope and Elements of Style stamp sets.

We used a 6x6 paper to create the little basket.  Scoring was super easy using the Simply Score tool.

We created the topper using the top note die for the big shot.  The little bags we used are also from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for looking.
