Bookmark Card

I love this bookmark card and all of the PINK! It would make a great gift, a card and present all in one!

I used the hostess only stamp set, Gift of Love, and One Big Meaning. The Aqua Painters are great for giving a soft watercolor effect.



Thanks for watching!

Pop of Pink Milk Carton

This adorable milk carton box is made from the Pop of Pink designer series paper (DSP) and the best part is you don’t need a special punch board or other tools. Just a trimmer with a score blade, and a corner rounder!

Double Pleat Technique

My craft room is all packed up to head out to the Catalog Launch Party tomorrow and I can’t WAIT to share some amazing new products with my family and friends. It’s going to be a blast! If you can’t make it in person, I’ll be sharing live Facebook videos all day, as well as taking LOADS of photos! So be sure to head over to my FB page and take a peek on Saturday.

I saw Linda Bauwin’s Double Pleat card on her YouTube channel, and I had to try this beautiful card for myself. I used Pop of Pink, Stampin’ Up!’s NEW Designer Series Paper. I simply adore this paper, it’s gorgeous with Melon Mambo, Basic Black, and Whisper White. (There’s a couple of Whisper White Pages with GOLD!)

Ribbon Slide Card

I’ve revisited an older card that I made many, many moons ago, the Ribbon Slide Card. I brought it back up to date by using some BRAND NEW Designer Series Paper, Pop of Pink, which will be available June 1! I also featured the Flower Patch stamp set with coordinating Flower Fair Framelits Dies.
