It's time to express your love!  These adorable Zoo Babies love note cards are a perfect way to share your love!  Hide them in a lunch bag, briefcase or drawer for your loved one to discover!  A highlight of this set is learning how to create sleek envelopes using a combination of the Simply Scored Board and the Gift Bag Punch Board.  This set includes four love notes, four envelopes, a gift tag, and an adorable gift bag to hold the set of love notes.  This set would be perfect for a stamp camp or as a simple gift!

Creation Station - Bloomin' Love!


Thanks for stopping by on the Creation Station's Blog Hop! If you're just starting the hop, Welcome! Our Blog Hop is focused on Valentines! And you'll be seeing a lot of the Bloomin' Love stamp set and the coordinating Bloomin' Heart Thinlits, as well as a lot of Glimmer!! 


I used Kraft Cardstock to make this fun pocket card! I added a subtle (Kraft/Crumb Cake colored) patterned piece of designer paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack, along with the fabulous Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, for the background.

The beautiful Bloomin' Heart from the Thinlits can definitely stand alone... But I decided to add some Blushing Bride Glimmer flowers (from the Thinlits set) to add a little pop! And the Candy Dots made a sweet and simple flower center.
  
 

I tied Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon around the card to keep it closed!

To make the card into a Pocket Card I started with a 5-1/2" x 12" Kraft Cardstock piece, and scored at 4" and 8". I made an angled cut on the third section to create the inside pocket. Then I added a 'slice' of Blushing Bride Glimmer to coordinate and the sweet "My Valentine" greeting!


The pocket is a nice size for a gift card, but big enough for a little treat too!


I hope you liked my Pocket Card!

Bunny in the Carrot Patch!

You’re invited…to join bunny…in the carrot patch!  These projects feature the Friends & Flowers Stamp Set and the coordinating Festive Flower Builder Punch to create the star of the show…the adorable bunny.  And what does the bunny love the most?  Carrots, of course!  Bright and fun Pumpkin Pie and Cucumber Crush Cardstock are scored and folded to create 3-D carrots…in two sizes!  Larger carrots are strung on Linen Thread to create a garland of carrots…and the smaller carrot perfectly adorns a Tiny Treat Box.  The bunny faced card is designed to serve for Easter greetings…or an invitation…and a colorful place card rounds out the project line up.

Number Framelits Anniversary!


Some special friends of mine are celebrating their 30th Wedding Anniversary and this is the card I made for them!

I'm really loving the Number Framelits Dies - they are awesome! They make a pretty good stand alone focal point for a card - the font size is just right. I added the numbers onto a 2-1/2" punched Circle and then a Silver Doily. I used a piece of Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum for the background. I layered that onto a Silver Foil Sheet.

I used the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge over at Craft Project Central for the layout - 


So my card is not exact to the layout, but it really is fun and helpful to use a Sketch to help you in creating a card! 

If you haven't tried a Sketch - you should!! :)

Baker's Box Creations!

This tutorial includes three different treat and gift boxes made with the Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies. There’s a little treat box that holds a Ghirardelli candy bar perfectly, a tall Baker’s Box that can hold a full-size candy bar or anything around the same size, and a wide Baker’s Box that can hold a lot of treats or a little gift. The boxes also feature the Garden in Bloom Stamp Set and English Garden Designer Series Paper. This would make a great product-based class for the Baker’s Box Thinlits Dies.

Crash the (DSP) Stash!

Ask any stamper or paper crafter and, if they’re honest, they’ll admit to having more designer paper than they’ll probably live long enough to use.  The problem (for lack of a better word) is that there are too many gorgeous paper collections coming and going all the time.  This tutorial will demonstrate a fun, colorful, and creative technique that will not only have you using that paper you’ve been hoarding, but it also gives the green light to mixing and matching colors and patterns that you would normally never use together.  While you are putting your hoarded stash to work, you will thoroughly enjoy some trendy techniques such as the quilt and tag cards, tag-shaped window, glimmer pinwheel card, and a colorful, fun Bargello design.  Of course, you’ll need a pretty place to put your stack of cards, and this tutorial includes a handy pocket portfolio for that purpose.
