New Yeah!! - GDP223


A new year and a new decade ... New Yeah! I love January. It always welcomes a new perspective, a fresh beginning, and a feeling of determination and motivation! 

I have wanted to do a gratitude journal for some time and the new year was the perfect excuse to get crafty. Did you know that Stampin' Up! has mini journals for just $8.75 CAD?!

Item 149588

The Pressed Petals Journal is a spiral-bound journal with perforated pages that you can remove and use on card fronts or memory-keeping pages. Debossed cover.

* 24 sheets: 4 each of 6 designs
* 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Product colours: Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Rococo Rose, Very Vanilla



Adding a few paper layers and a little hand stamping made this gratitude journal come together in a snap.

Christmas Color Challenge - #GDP221


It is almost here! Christmas is this week! Are you feeling ready? Christmas is low key for us this year. I have scaled back on things and my stress level is pretty low! Skipped the baking, mailing Christmas cards and newsletter (gasp, I know!) and purchased WAY less gifts! Some years you just can't do it all!

I am giving Christmas cards to our friends and family that I get to see this week. After all, I have a load of beautiful handmade cards that need to be shared! Here is one more Christmas card for 2019 ..

My card today is for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP221.
Visit the GDP to see what the rest of the design team has created!




Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays this week! I hope that you are surrounded by the ones you love and that you can find some time to take it all in, relax and enjoy!

Cheers!

No white challenge - Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Hellloooo my fancy friends! It is the final blog hop of 2019 and the final blog hop of the decade for the Fancy Friday design team! Our challenge today is "no white".

The paper crafting industry has been on a white trend for some time .. I myself love this trend! A couple of months ago, Cindy Schuster from our Fancy Friday team, was brainstorming ideas for a challenge for our team. I suggested a challenge where we could not use white (or vanilla). I will say - this challenge was hard but in the end I pulled off this cheery card!







You must see what the rest of the design team has created. Next on the hop is Charlotte Mallett from the Painted Orange.

Be sure to come check out our next Fancy Friday blog hop, the last Friday in January!

Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!!

Rose Holiday Table - #GDP220


Last week on the blog, I teased that I had a pink holiday table to share with you all! Your response to my pink Christmas tree card was amazing and I know you are going to love this tablescape!


If you follow me, you may have caught a holiday table setting post in the past. I love to change my color and theme each year. This is totally affordable with a trip to a dollar store! This year I found ball ornaments that coordinate with Stampin' Up!'s© in color Rococo Rose! This color is so hot this year - I see it everywhere!

I also picked up the silver trees, rose gold jingle bells and rose gold tea lights in my dollar store trip. I had the silver sleigh, bowl and mini lights but the dollar store totally has similar finds, I am sure! My table runner is a roll of wrapping paper from IKEA! I have hosted two Christmas parties so far with this table setting and everyone loved this table runner idea!

The place-mats are a piece of 8-1/2" x 11" Rococo Rose Cardstock from Stampin' Up!©. Most managed to make it through the dinner without getting dirty so these will totally be up-cycled for paper crafting!



My Stampin' Up!© touch to the table setting is the handmade treats for all of my guests. Check out the bottom of this post for the supply list and shop my on-line store for all of the supplies you will require to make these treat bags.

Quick tip ... the bags come flat and just require a simple score line, 1" from the bottom, to make it a gusset bag.




My treat bag was inspired by this weeks Global Design Project Challenge #GDP220. I was inspired by the following details on Shawn's card
  • Background stamping with tone on tone colors. Shawn used Pretty Peacock and I used Blushing Bride but we have both captured the same technique. 
  • The metallic stripe. Shawn looks like he embossed a stripe across the bottom of his card. It inspired me to add a length of copper ribbon to my tag.


Visit the GDP to see what the rest of the design team has created and follow all week to see what participants from around the world are sharing. If you are crafty - join us!

I hope that I have inspired you to consider pink a Christmas color! Thank-you for visiting! Have a creative day!
