That Basket with Pockets...And the Link to Find the Pattern

I have been getting a lot of inquiries lately about this basket and how to find the tutorial.
Since I originally put this on Pinterest, it's been pinned and re-pinned, so I can't go back and add the correct link to all of the pictures.  (I've since learned how to put the link to the actual post with my pictures...)  My apologies to all of you who have been coming to my blog to find the information.  I haven't been able to figure out what to search for to find it either!

My original post with this basket is at http://www.jaynestamps.com/2014/04/basket-with-pockets-class.html

I am not the original creator of this pattern.  You can get it at http://inkingfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2014/04/is-sooo-good-to-be-back-with-cards-more.html (and yes, it is from April 2014).


I'm going to see if I can figure out how to keep this post at the top of my blog for awhile.  I'm sure there's a way to do it, but I need to search for instructions.

Hope this helps all of you who have been looking for this!  Until next time...
HAPPY STAMPING!

It's the New Stampin' Up! Year!!

Hurray! Hurray!  The new Stampin' Up! catalog year has begun!  Do you have your copy of the new catalog yet?  I think it's the best one ever (and I don't say that lightly!).

One of the new stamp sets this year has proven to be very popular and very versatile.  It's called Swirly Bird and has a set of coordinating dies called the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.   You've got to love a stamp set where you can make a sailboat, flowers, kites, and much more!  Check out just a few cards here for inspiration:
Ahoy, maties!

I love the colors of these flowers - Peekaboo Peach (one of the new In Colors) and Tangerine Tango.

This was one of the make-n-take projects at my New Catalog Open House last week.  It features another one of the new In Colors - Flirty Flamingo.  And isn't the bird just adorable?

Judi Cayton made this card for a recent swap. She used the new In Color Sweet Sugarplum along with the coordinating new 3/8" Ruched Ribbon.

Birthday Blooms Card Class

 
This is a week I face with mixed emotions.  There are a lot of my favorite stamps and accessories that are retiring, but the new Stampin' Up! catalog will be available to order from on Wednesday, June 1.  So I guess that makes up for the retiring items, right?

One thing I'm really sad to see go is the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.  This paper is gorgeous!  We used it in a class I held recently and the attendees all agreed that they loved this paper too!
 These are the front of the card boxes.

These are the cards everyone was able to make.

Stamp sets used are Birthday Blooms and Watercolor Words.

I hope that you've had a safe Memorial Day weekend and that you've been able to take at least a moment to remember those who have served and are continuing to serve to preserve our freedoms.

Retiring 2014-2016 In-Colors

 Smiley from Millan.Net
(or maybe you should!)
Just a head's up for those of you in love with the soon to be retiring In-Colors. The retiring list for all items in the 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! annual catalog will be coming out on Monday, April 18. In the past, the retiring In-Colors have sold out quickly. So I would highly suggest if you want any more cardstock, ink refills, ribbon, etc. that you order them NOW. Don't miss out!
 

And this is the last week for "Weekly Deals".  Stampin' Up! is discontinuing this offering, but you still have through next Monday, April 18, to take advantage of these great deals.
I'm always happy to place an order for you, or you can order yourself at the link below.  Just don't wait!

Until next time...
HAPPY STAMPING!

Bunny in a Basket Card

I'm still here, even though I haven't been posting on my blog much lately.  I do try to post daily on my Facebook page, so if you're looking for new projects and ideas, you can always go check it out HERE (or the link is at the bottom of each post).

Today I have a sweet bunny card to share - perfect for tucking in an Easter basket!  We made this card at the March Chocoholic Chicks meeting.  It's not hard, but it does use a variety of supplies.
 Smiley from Millan.Net
I saw this adorable card on Wendy Cranford's blog.  She even has a video tutorial on her post at http://www.luvinstampin.com/2016/02/youre-eggstraordinary-bunny-basket-easter-card.html.  She also has a list of all of the supplies used to make this card.  I will tell you that the stamp sets used are from the 2016 Occasions Catalog - Friends & Flowers (for the bunny) and Greatest Greetings for the words.

I hope you have a happy and blessed Easter!

Picture Perfect

Have you seen the newest Sale-A-Bration items that are available?  There are two new stamp sets and some gorgeous Metallics Glitter Tape that looks like a lot of fun.  I just got mine today, so I haven't played with it yet, but I can't wait!  You can see the newest items in the brochure here:
Today's card is one I made for the February Upscale Swap Group.  The picture doesn't show the Clear Wink of Stella on the flowers.  The center flower has it all over, and the two outside flowers have it on the darker spots (the Rose Red).  I'll have to work on capturing that with my camera.

Valentine's Sampler

 
 Smiley from Millan.Net
I'm kind of addicted to making frame "samplers" with stamps and card stock.  I recently saw a beautiful Valentine's one, so I decided that I needed to make a new one.  After all, my other one is at least four years old.  Plus this new one is 12x12" and my "old" one is 8x8".  These are all significant differences, wouldn't you agree?
Smiley from Millan.Net
This first picture was taken without a flash, so the colors look a bit washed out.
 Smiley from Millan.Net
The second picture is with a flash, but it's so difficult to get a decent picture of something behind glass.  Any tips?
I would try to list all the items that I used on the frame, but there are too many to mention.  I've tried to list the main ones below.
STAMPS:
Watercolor Words, Going Global, Bloomin' Love, Bear Hugs, Number of Years, Groovy Love
PAPERS:
Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack; Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, and Basic Black cardstock; Blushing Bride, Dazzling Diamonds, and Black Glimmer Papers
ACCESSORIES:
Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit; various punches, framelits, and embossing folders
