November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Scrapbook Pages





Hello, and welcome! I used a few pieces from my November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit to make this double page layout. It was quite easy to do, and I only used a few pieces from the kit. The 12" x 12" base pages are from the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper Pack.

I cut one of the plaid card layers to 4" in length. It was already 4" wide, so I simple trimmed it down. I used the leftover piece on the photo mat on the first page. I made the rest of this piece using supplies from the kit as directed.




I used the negative part of the circle sticker for the right hand page. I stuck this sticker part to a piece of  4" x 4" Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I used one of our Layering Circle Framelits to stamp the sentiment that came with the kit on a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock. The Cherry Cobbler Ink Spot, leaf sprig, and sequins were also included. 





The large Cherry Cobbler photo mats measure 6 1/2" x 11". The other two photo mats measure 4" x 6". I used our Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners, and the decorative edges as well. 


I'm really going to enjoy this month's Paper Pumpkin Kit. It contains enough supplies to make 10 Christmas Cards. I only used a few pieces to create these scrapbook pages, so I have plenty left to make the cards, and probably more.

Back To Basics Card #1




Today I'm going back to basics. I used one of the Mint Macaron Note Cards from the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes Set, and stamped directly on it. I used the tree, and leaf sprig from Rooted In Nature, and a sentiment from A Big Thank You. The tree is stamped in Old Olive, and the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss. BOOM!

I am going live tomorrow, November 14th, on my Jean's Paper Jewels Page to show you how I made this card. It will start at 11AM EST. I will also show two more cards that are a bit stepped up, but still sweet, and simple. Click HERE to visit my page.

October 2018 Alternate Paper Pumpkin Projects





Hello, and welcome! I have a few alternate designs using stamps, and other products from my October 2018 Friends of a Feather Paper Pumpkin Kit. I made the pretty plaid background on the card above by first stamping with our Buffalo Check Stamp. I added lines with a Dark Cajun Craze Blend, and a Dark Crumb Cake Blend. The front piece measures 4" x 3". I also added a 7/8" x 4" leftover piece to the inside of the card. It came out real pretty. I have a free video tutorial on my Jean's Paper Jewels Facebook Page. Click HERE to see it.





For the next card, I simply turned the card base inside out. It was Crumb Cake, but was lined with white. I added a piece of gold Washi tape to the right side of the inside. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings. I also spattered some Costal Cabana ink on the outside using my Wink of Stella. It makes a pretty addition.






For my last card, I simply used a different sentiment, but made it as directed. I used one from Itty Bitty Greetings also.

Hello Kitty Birthday Card




Hello, and welcome! Our lovely little granddaughter turns three this week. I used a bunch of Stampin' Up! products to make this sweet card.

The card base is Thick Whisper White. The kitty face is one of the Layering Ovals Dies. The ears are from our retired Hearts Thinlites set. I just cut the whiskers out by hand, and used a 1/4" circle punch for the eyes. The tiny nose comes from the Apron Builder Die Set. The two bows, and ribbon like borders are from our All The Presents, and the fancy bottom lace border is from Delicate Lace. Of course I had to make a matching envelope using our Envelope Punch Board. The letters are from the Large Letter Die Set.

I made the cute plaid layer by stamping the Buffalo Check Stamp on Whisper White using Daffodil Delight Ink. I drew the lines in with a Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker. I showed several of these techniques on my last Watch Me Wednesday Video on Facebook. You can view it HERE. Here's a picture of the other backgrounds I made using those techniques.









I also have a special promotion until the end of November. Any online orders of $50 or more before tax and shipping will receive a package of the cute Santas Workshop Enamel Shapes. Through November 30th. (Disclaimer - if SU runs out, I will substitute them for a similar item).

Buffalo Check Stamp Tips




Have you seen the Buffalo Check background stamp? It makes a great background just as is, but can be made into terrific plaid designs as well. Buffalo Check is so popular, and can be found on so many items these days from coffee cups to jackets.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the regular image. It came in real handy, as the larger images can sometimes be stubborn. Being able to stamp it multiple times in the exact same place was helpful. I added just a touch of snail adhesive to my white cardstock so that I could secure it to my grid paper. I used Daffodil Delight for my main image. To make it into plaid, I simply used my Melon Mambo marker, and drew lines across the middle of the white spaces using a ruler. It made the perfect background for my card.

Please join me Wednesday, October 31st, at 11AM EST for my next episode of Watch Me Wednesday. I will go live on my Jean's Paper Jewels Facebook Page. You can see all my videos HERE. I will demonstrate how to make your checked background into plaid, as well as show you some tips using the Buffalo Check Stamp.



I also have a special promotion for the month of October. Any online orders of $50 or more before tax and shipping will receive a package of the cute Santas Workshop Enamel Shapes.
