Here’s the Scoop Gift Card

Concord and 9th

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today showcasing the yet another stamp set from Concord & 9th August Release.

Today it’s all about ice cream with the Here’s The Scoop stamp and die set!!

Let’s take a look:

Here's the Scoop

Isn’t this gift card just the cutest?  I love that the ice cream scoops was big enough to create a mini card.

Here’s how I created this gift card:

  • Stamp the ice cream scoop onto white card stock in black ink.
  • Using Prima Coloring Pencils, color the image the colors of your choice.  I used PC 920 (light green), PC924 (crimson red) and PC 1082 (Chocolate).
  • Use the Here’s the Scoop Die to cut that image out.
  • Cut a second one to create the gift card.
  • Score the second ice cream scoop on the left side and apply adhesive.
  • Adhere the two pieces together pieces together.

Here's the Scoop

  • Slide your card and gift card inside the envelope to send off to the recipient.

Nice, clean and simple.  This mini card was so much fun to make and the possibilities are endless.

What do you think?  I would love to hear what you think?  Please let me know below.

How Do You Store Your We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a question for all of you?  How do you store your We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board?  When I purchased up mine, I wasn’t sure how I was going to store it, especially since it came with so many moving pieces.

I called Denise, better know as Mama from Simply Charming Everyday!!  She creates the cutes bags and accessories using her sewing machine.  She is famous for her Bunkie Bags, MISTI bags, Big Totes and Pouches.

Bunkie Bags

I asked Mama if she could make me a special pouch for my new We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch Board and accessories.  She said YES, right away no hesitation.  I love this lady!!

She asked me to pick my fabric and I let her know she can go with the black and white polka-dot with a pink zipper to match my other bags.  I also told her it has to have her signature button on it.   She laugh and said no problem.

Lets take a look at my pouch:

Everything Pouch

I totally love how this pouch turned out.  It is the cutest thing in the world.  It holds my We R Memory Keepers Planner Punch and its accessories.

Lets take a closer look:

Everything Pouch

When you fist look at the pouch it looks very small.  You will wonder to yourself, how will all of these things fit in this petite bag.  Well hold on to your sit, because it will.

Everything Pouch

Take a look at the bag when you open it completely!!  Its huge inside.  I love how the zipper opens up so wide.  I can fit everything in without stretching the fabric.

Everything Pouch

Check it out!!!  Everything fits and there is room for more stuff!!  I love it.  Mama did an awesome job.

Lets take another look:

I love Mama’s signature button.  I ask for it every time she creates something for me.

Check out the pouch she created for my daughter:

Everything Pouch

So what do you think?  Isn’t this the cutest pouch you’ve seen.  I love that is totally hand sewn.  She makes all of these bags by hand.  She also creates custom items as well.

I’ve asked for:

  • a cover for my ScanNCut
  • a cover for my Typewriter
  • a cover for my daughter’s sewing machine.

Mama is totally accommodating and flexible.  I highly recommend her bags and expertise!!

You can find her on different social media outlets!

I absolutely love how this layout turned out.  I stepped out of my comfort zone for this page.  I wanted to really incorporate a couple of the new stamp sets from this release.

Speech Bubbles

I used Speech Bubbles, 24/7, and More Then Words with the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. They make the page fun yet elegant.

Here’s how to create this page:

  • Using the Memory MISTI, stamp all of sentiments from all three stamp sets.  24/7

Reflection Scrapbook Kit

  • Then cut different pieces of pattern paper from the Reflection Collection Kit.
  • Distress the edges for an added effect.
  • Adhere all of those pieces down using Tombow liquid glue and 3M Foam tape.
  • Add thread on top of the layered panel, in no particular order.  Just make sure the thread can be seen off of the side of the photo.
  • Adhere the photo on top of the layer panel using foam tape.
  • Fussy cut the Speech Bubbles that was stamped earlier and adhere them to the top of the photo using 3M Foam tape.

Memory MISTI 12 x 12 - Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented Tombow Mono Liquid Glue      

Thank you so much for stopping by!!

{Clean and Simple} – Bud

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

I’m so happy with this card!!  I love this Kitty Bee Design Flower For You Bunny.  This digital image is so stinking cute!!

I printed the image and used the ScanNCut to cut the image out. I used copic markers to color the flower in then added glossy accents in the center of the flower.

Before placing the image on the card front, add a couple of score lines to the bottom and the side of the card using a scoring tool.

The brightness in the photo hides the score lines on the side but they are there.

To add a sentiment, simple die cut Simon Says Stamp Big Hugs out of red card stock twice.  Adhere it to the card base using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

Adhere the bunny to the card base using 3M Foam Tape.

Nice, simple and easy.  What do you think?  Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!
