Here is my card:

Project Life

I decided to use Project Life to make my card.  Even though I am not a scrapbooker, I love using Project Life to make cards.  The Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collections uses a lot of my favorite colors such as Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry (among others).  I made this card entirely from Project Life and there is no stamping on it at all.

Bravo For Project Life

Bravo, PLxSU

As you know, Stampin’ Up! is now carrying Project Life.  Project Life is a great way to scrapbook, especially for those who don’t have time.  They have pre-made cards, stickers, and stamps so it makes it really easy to put together a scrapbook page.  I am not a scrapbooker but I love to use Project Life to make cards.  All I did for this one, is Stamp the “hip-hip hooray!”, “you did it!” (both of which are from the stamp set called Bravo) and the stars on a piece of Project Life cardstock, add a couple of arrows and attached it to cardstock.  It was very easy and quick to do.  You can’t make a card much easier than that!

Flower Patch For Freshly Made Sketches

Flower Patch

Whenever I need a little inspiration I try to either find a card sketch, color combination or challenge that I like.  This time I used this week’s Freshly Made Sketches card challenge.  Here is what it looks like:

FMS+Final+145-001I used the new Photopolymer Stamp Set called Flower Patch.  I stamped the largest flower in Bermuda Bay and cut it with the matching Framelits called Flower Fair. Then I stamped it again in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie and cut out the smaller sections of the flowers by hand and put them together using Dimensionals.  The little flag shape at the bottom is a new Big Shot Die called Party Pennants and the sentiment is from Endless Birthday Wishes.  That is a stamp set that is not in the catalog but is available for purchase.  If you click on the tab at the top of my blog that says “Merchandise Not In The Catalog” you will see a few other items that are not in the catalog but are available to purchase.

Oh My Goodies & Project Life

Oh My Goodies, PLxSU

Thirty one years ago I married Rob.  Wow it is hard to believe how time has flown.  I know people say that all the time but honestly it is true.  Together we have three wonderful boys (who are now men) and one daughter in law, all of whom we are very proud of.  It has been a great 31 years and I would do it all over again if given the chance.  I did make Rob a card but I decided not to post it today.  Sometimes I just have to keep things between the two of us.

Today’s card is made with a new stamp set called Oh My Goodies.  I know.  It is a very weird name and a very weird sentiment but I love it anyway.  There are four stamps in this set that go with the Deco Labels Framelits.  The stamp I used is one of my favorite from the set.

The background is one of the cards from the Project Life Everyday Adventure Collection.  I have used quite a number of these cards as backgrounds and I particularly love this set because of the bright colors.  Everyone know Bermuda Bay with either Daffodil Delight or in this case, Crushed Curry, is one of my favorite combinations.  All you need to do is look at my blog header to realize this!

Happy Anniversary, Onion.  I love you the most!

Happy Birthday Zachary!

Project LifeToday is my youngest son, Zachary’s, birthday.  He is 27.  I am not sure where the time went because it did not seem that long ago that he was just a baby.  Let me tell you, he was the hardest baby of the three.  It really wasn’t his fault.  We didn’t realize until he was 9 months old that he was allergic to milk products.  Once we figured that out, he became his disposition improved greatly!

I made this card using the Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Collection and Accessory Pack.  These products make really nice cards in about 3 minutes!  The hardest part was lining up the sentiment (using the stamp set Four You).

Happy Birthday Zachary!  You are an amazing young man and I am so proud of you!

Happy Birthday Tara

DSC02174Today is my favorite daughter-in law’s Birthday.  Tara is married to my middle son, Sam and is 30 years old today!  I made this card for her using the Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Collection.  I love using them on my cards.  It is like having a whole bunch of different Designer Series Paper on hand and the bright colors are just my style.  This card uses Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush and Bermuda Bay. Of course, the Project Life cards are supposed to be used as pocket scrapbookking but you can use them as cards too.

For the sentiment I used Itty Bitty Banners with the matching Bitty Banners Framelits.  The flowers is from Mixed Bunch cut out using the matching punch called Blossom.

Happy Birthday, Tara!  Love you!

Project Life Card

DSC02163Stampin’ Up! has teamed with Becky Higgins to produce their own line of Project Life products.  These products are made for people who scrapbook but don’t have time to make pages from scratch.  I am really  not a person who scrapbooks but the products can also be used to make cards (like mine!).  There are card collections, accessory packs, stamps, pens and framelits that can be used to make terrific pages.

For this card I used the Everyday Adeventure Project Life Card Collection, the Everyday Project Life Accessory Pack and the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits.  The border around the saying is from the Photopolymer Stamp Set called Project Life Point & Click.  In the future I will try to show you what a scrapbook page looks like using these great products.
