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")
Directions:
  • 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).

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder.

I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!  After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born.


I imagine you can see why this is not just my most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot!

Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday!

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*.

And just like clothing, one size and one style does not fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best for your eyes!

Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes:

Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best!Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, there's no gl…

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.
