Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life!

Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends! 

PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow!

Here's what I used to make this sweet card:

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Whisper White Cardstock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"; scored at 4-1/4") & (3-3/8" x 4-5/8")
  • Night of Navy Cardstock (3-1/2" x 4-3/4")
  • Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper (4-1/4" x 5-1/2")
  • The easy part first: adhere your Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper to your Card Base (the Whisper White Cardstock).
  • Next, cut the 2-3/8" circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from the Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Then cut the 2-5/8" scallop circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Crumb Cake Cardstock.
  • Next, take the circle and run it through the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it that weave texture---it looks just like a lattice crust pie!!!!  Eeek!
  • Apply adhesive to your textured circle and adhere it to the scallop circle.  Pie!!!
  • I stamped a couple of strawberries from the Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist ink and punched them out using the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack.  I am truly obsessed with these punches!  The tiny fruits are just too cute!!  I then used a couple dabs of glue to put them on the front of my pie.
  • Okay, moving along---I stamped the "You are the Sweetest!" sentiment onto the bottom right hand corner of the Whisper White Cardstock in Night of Navy ink.  I stamped a couple of the tiny hearts around it, too.
  • I adhered the Whisper White Cardstock to the Night of Navy Cardstock.
  • I wrapped a bit of the Linen Thread around the left hand side of the layered pieces and tied a bow.  Then I adhered my pie to the front of the card.
  • Finish by placing the layered pieces to the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper and you're done!
The best part?  If you substitute the Ink Colors for the Tutti-Frutti Classic Stampin' Spots (comes with Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, and Soft Suede) the entire supply list will earn you the Blossoming Basket Bundle for FREE!  (The total is $107.50 with those Stampin' Spots in lieu of the three Classic Stampin' Pads).

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Lent 2020: Day Two

Today's post is brought to you by...COFFEE.  I'm not going to lie, I really did consider giving up coffee for Lent, but when I mentioned it to one of my best friends, his response was "well, I'll see you in 40 days!"  I was kind of shocked at his lack of support, but then I read a post that was shared with me regarding Lent and some "food for thought" and one of the bullet points read "Don't give up coffee. Jesus will forgive you, but your family might not."  Well---I heard God loud and clear on that one.  Don't give up coffee.  And I'm so very glad I did not. See today, I had a TON of things to accomplish.  We're gearing up for a big weekend and I had quite the laundry list to do.  Not only was my laundry list (and my laundry basket) huge, but I didn't sleep well last night.  I had a very restless husband, so I put myself out on the couch.  Which wasn't terrible, but it wasn't exactly great, either.  So I already

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space? I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability. Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.
