Here are just a few things I made using this kit. The first couple of items are tags and mini cards used to dress up party packages. The darling scalloped tag die just might be my most favorite die yet. I used the liner for the inside of the tag, on the outside to create a quick mini card.
I then layered together several cupcake wrappers from the kit, snipped in towards the center, and created a fun, layered flower. The inside of my flower uses the mini pom pons from the kit.
I then die cut images from one of the pre-printed paper sheets from the Party Pops kit, and adhered it to my mini card. A bit of glitter to the top of my candles, and that was it!
Next, I created a tag for a package using the same dies as my base, but added on a die cut and stamped cupcake from the kit.
I added a sweet cherry on top, that you'll find in the kit, and then created another type of layered flower, cut using die cuts from the Party Pops kit. So genius! I then attached my tag to the box found in the kit with some other fun extras.
My next couple of projects add in lighter colors just for fun, as this kit can be used for boys, girls, adults, anyone at any age and with any particular style in mind. The dies make everything so doable and possible.
I used the another fun die from the kit that creates circular pop-up elements when combined with other dies you'll find in the kit, such as the candles, cupcake, and balloons. I love shaped tags and cards, and this particular die makes created circular shaped items so easy and fun.
Instead of using this particular group of dies for a table decoration, or package topper, I attached it to a card base, to create a card with lots of character and layers.
I love all of the different layering possibilities involved with this set, that all come about because of the interactive dies.
Inside my card, I stamped another sentiment using images from this set, and a few streamers and cupcakes.
I feel like I've barely just scratched the surface of what can be done with this amazing kit and can't wait to pull it out for many special birthdays in the future.
Be sure to stop by and visit the other designers, as they have oodles to share with you!
Hey there! I've got a fun crafty tip for you today involving cork. Freckled Fawn has such a great assortment of cork shapes and they are so much fun to add to your paper-crafting projects.
I used the cork tags from the OHDEERME March Embellishment kit and added some color to them so they'd work with the color combination on my card. I used acrylic paint in aqua and pink and love how adding color completely transformed them. I created a background for my cork shapes by using images from the OHDEERME March Embellishment kit stamp set.
I even layered a cork heart under a cork tag to create a stacked embellishment and then added a button to serve as the "o" in "love". Freckled Fawn's Puffy Alphabet Stickers are becoming my latest fetish...love these sweet additions. The Vellum Phrase Sticker is from the OHDEERME February Embellishment kit...love, love, love anything vellum :).
So grab your favorite cork shapes, a foam brush, and your desired color of paint and watch what happens next!
Love this quote found on Pinterest...gonna soak it in and remember :).
Just like my love for sweets, I can't get enough of the Let Them Eat Cake Flair from A Flair for Buttons...they come in two colors, aqua and pink. Today I've used a Flair from the Pink collection and found that it was the perfect accessory for a Mother's Day card.
I used my flair button to embellish the center of my layered, shabby die-cut flower, cut using the Sizzix Camellia die.
Good Monday morning! Just a quick spring treat to share with you today. With Easter quickly approaching, and the spring weather absolutely perfect here, I wanted to pull out my Papertrey Ink Petite Places: Church die and stamp set in order to dress up a little, pink mason jar.
These miniature scenes are so fun to put together. I love mixing and matching patterns and colors in order to build and create a certain feeling and mood. I've mixed in gingham, floral, woodgrain, and glittered paper to create a spring scene for my church.
My first project today was created for the Crate Paper blog and uses a sweet wooden hoop from the Craft Market collection.
I love these sweet Ephemera Die Cuts, also from the Craft Market Collection...perfectly Spring-y. There are many more projects for you to enjoy on the Crate Paper blog...such a fun place to be inspired!
My card was created for Emma's Paperie and uses some beautiful Bo Bunny Press products as they were our focus as designers in February. I love this sweet and shabby collection and couldn't wait to play around with it.
I used a Spellbinder die to create my lovely, frilly, shabby flower and then accented with Bo Bunny Press Pearlescents...love these :).
I can't say enough about this darling stamp set...it's going down as one of my all-time favorites :). Here's a bit about it!

My next card uses the new You've Been Framed: Hexagon stamp set and coordinating die.
The new Noted stamp set is up next and is one of my favorites. Love those jumbo chevrons and can't get enough of them.
The Retro Style Birthday stamp set was used on this fun card...so many playful possibilities.
And lastly, the new Retro Style Graduation, Enclosed: Graduate...
And on the inside, the Tucked In: Congratulations was used.
For more details on the supplies I used on my cards, just check the supply lists below.
Papertrey Ink's new Make it Market Mini Kit is so darling. It's called Clipsters and is all about creating custom clips for your paper-crafting projects. The kit comes complete with dies, patterned paper, stamps, and paper clips in a sweet assortment of coordinating colors. For my first project I created a card using multiple stamped images from this kit along with the dies and patterned paper.
I used the new Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical die to create the topper for my card. I selected a couple of prints from the mini kit to layer using this die. I then created a custom clip for the top of my card which carries my sentiment using stamps and dies from Clipsters.
The Cover Plate: Hexagons was used across the body of my card and I stamped images from Clipsters inside some of those openings along with bits of coordinating patterned paper from the kit.
My next card is much simpler, letting the patterned paper from the kit do all of the work :).
The only stamping I did was in the center of my You've Been Framed: Oval die. I didn't include a second sentiment of this card, leaving its use wide open for many different occasions.
I created another sweet custom clip for the bottom of my card by using a pre-printed banner that just needed to be die cut. I then folded it over a paper clip, added a bit of ribbon, a button, and love how it dressed up the card very simple and easily. That's the beauty of this kit...I love it!
I couldn't help myself and kept assembling clips :). They'll be showing up in future projects here soon. Be sure to stop by and visit the other design team members' blog. They'll have plenty more to share using the new Clipsters kit.
Sweet Shoppe is the perfect name for this next grouping of products from Papertrey Ink. The new Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe stamp set is so intricate and detailed with all of the tiniest details perfectly thought out. I've created an ensemble featuring these new stamps and dies to share with you today.
My card uses the Petite Places: Sweet Shoppe stamp set across the bottom of my card, with just the store front stamped. I used Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush, and Hibiscus Burst. I then used the Sweet Shoppe dies to cut just the awning for my store front. They are stamped in Smokey Shadow along with the tiny bicycle.
Next I used the new Sweet Shoppe Sentiments stamp set across the top of my card, stamping my images on Smokey Shadow cardstock in watermark ink, embossing with white powder, and then adding light smudges to create a chalkboard effect using Fresh Snow ink. The flourishes in the corners are from the new You've Been Framed: Diamond stamp set.
I then used the Sweet Shoppe die to create a dimensional Candy Shoppe to place under a dome so I could dress up this package of sweets.
I used a combination of patterned paper and stamps from Sweet Shoppe to create my petite building.
Before adhering my dome I sprinkled in some pink sequins to add a little movement. I then attached it to my package along with a stamped Tremendous Tag which uses the new Sweet Shoppe Sentiments stamp set once again. See those tiny donuts? Cute, huh?
Off to see what the other design team members have dreamed up for us. Thanks for your visit today!
The new Chicken Scratch line-up of products from Papertrey Ink are adorable and complete with endless possibilities. I've created a couple of cards to share today using these products and really can't wait to try out more things...maybe become a bit more bold in my use of the stamp set :).
My first card uses the Chicken Scratch stamp set to form a background above my focal point and then the Background Basics: Super Gingham stamp set was used below my focal point. I've always been a huge sucker for anything gingham related, so I adore this new stamp set.
I first started out by running a block of Vintage Cream cardstock through my die cut machine with the new Cover Plate: Chicken Scratch die and then I stamped my gingham in Aqua Mist.
This next card uses the Background Basics: Super Gingham stamp set combined with the Chicken Scratch set to form a quick and easy background down the left edge of my card. The tiny stamps in the Chicken Scratch set really add to the basic gingham and I love experimenting with them.
My sentiment across the bottom comes from the Chicken Scratch stamp set and is stamped in Classic Kraft ink. I used Vintage Cream Linen Cardstock for this card and love how the texture comes through for this particular theme and feel.
I can't wait to see how the other designers have used these products. I know I'll be blown away and inspired! Thanks for stopping by.
A lovely hello to you today! I get to introduce the most beautiful new stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Brushed Blooms....it's jaw dropping and such a treat to create with. I have been thoroughly enjoying myself :). This set gives you lovely, soft, almost watercolor-looking flowers in two, simple steps and I LOVE it!
The Brushed Blooms stamp set has a coordinating die collection that makes adding dimension so simple and fun. I've used the dies on my first two cards today. The first card uses another new product out this month called Sentiment Splits. They are crazy fun and unique! I've used both the dies and stamp set for my first card. I chose a color pallet of Aqua Mist and Spring Rain for my blue flowers and Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise for my yellow/orange flowers.
I used some lovely Sheer Basics Vellum for the top portion of my card and then layered on patterned paper across the bottom. Love the fun, soft curve that this particular Sentiment Split: Curve Vertical die adds.
My next card uses more of the Brushed Blooms dies to create a sweet, spring bouquet. I am so happy with how these colors turned out together....they remind me of my Grandma Haslam and the purple violets she'd always have in little pots in her home.
I used Lavender Moon and Autumn Rose for my large flowers, with the smaller flowers stamped in Melon Berry, highlighted with a bit of Stickles Diamond glitter. My stems and leaves were stamped in Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse. My bouquet is layered over a die cut Monthly Moments: Journal Card 2 cut from Sheer Basics Vellum.
My sentiment is stamped across the bottom using Autumn Rose and Melon Berry ink. This will go down as my very most favorite font....it's gorgeous!
Next up, I used the Brushed Blooms stamp set to emboss some flowers on vellum. I began by using the Stitched Tag die and embossed my flowers in white and Blush embossing powder with the leaves embossed in silver.
My sentiment is stamped on a die cut Keep it Simple Frame and attached with a safety pin to the top of my tag using a junk bow. The second half of my sentiment is stamped down the right edge of the card using Soft Stone.
Lastly, I created a background using the Smoosh technique and the Brushed Blooms stamp set. I added a bit of water over my stamped images to create a water-color effect. I used Melon Berry and Berry Sorbet ink for my small flowers and Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise for my larger flowers.
I added a sentiment using the new You've Been Framed: Oval stamp set with coordinating dies. This is layered over a die cut Tag Sale #4 cut from Sheer Basics Vellum once again.
The flourishes in the upper and lower corners is from the new You've Been Framed: Diamond stamp set...loving these fun new sets too :).
There's so much more to see! Just follow the links below and enjoy :). Thanks for visiting!
It's my favorite day of the week :). Hunting season is over, my husband home now on the weekends, the weather perfect, windows open letting in fresh air, and the time together and being outside puttering is wonderful.
Today's card uses elements from the Freckled Fawn March OHDEERME kit. It's so playful and fresh...perfect for spring.
I also used some Freckled Fawn Puffy Alphas in a few different colors...these are quite addicting, squishy, and sweet...love them :).
My flower was cut from Basic Grey Prism and J'Adore using the Sizzix Camellia die.
My quote above comes from one of my favorite Children's Primary songs called I Feel My Savior's Love: I changed the words for my quote from "Its gentleness enfolds me to, His gentleness enfolds me as His love certainly does just that.
The words are as follows and I hope they lift your heart this beautiful Saturday:
This is one of my most favorite sentiments, so I had to use it on my package. I added it to a tag created with Crate Paper's Open Book collection including Ephemera dies, and another sparkly, trendy, glittery, gold striped muslin bag from the Craft Market collection.
The tag is attached with a messy junk-bow...al beautiful kind of mess :).
I used another Flair Button in the center of my shabby flower. This button is from the Vintage Easter Flair collection and is such a delight.
I've attached it to the top of a glassine bag filled with Cadbury Mini Eggs...glassine bags are my favorite gift wrapping supply because they soften and make everything look so beautiful.
My tag is stamped using Papertrey Ink's Note Niblets and Tag Its #1 stamp sets.
My card is all about buttons as well, but not Flair. This card was created for Emma's Paperie with the focus being on buttons.
I've long loved a hefty stash of buttons as I remember sifting and sorting through a button tin my mom had, while she stitched and sewed :). Happy memories.
A complete supply list for this card can be found HERE.
Before I go...just wanted to share my current favorite, light-up-my-heart quote. This is from Jeffrey R. Holland and means so much to me.
Enjoy your day!
P.S. This is one of the most amazing quotes I have ever heard...makes me feel loved and find happiness in being creative :).
Happy Tuesday! I am up on the Crate Paper blog today with some fun projects to welcome in a little spring sunshine.
I love, love, love the chunky, gold, glittered Thickers from the Open Book collection....and love the combination of stark black and white stripes, with some sweet, soft florals, and of course, glittery gold...so elegant and trendy.
My muslin bag is from the Craft Market collection and comes with those sweet, glittery gold polka dots. Aren't they fun? I've got another one ready to share with you tomorrow using the glittery gold stripes. These are like candy :).
My card uses elements from Open Book and you can catch up with all of the details surrounding my projects HERE on the Crate Paper blog.
Hope the sun is shining today for you!
