Playing with new PTI stuff

I finally got my PTI order today--it seemed like it took forever, but I hear they had quadruple the normal number of orders this month. Hooray for them! Anyway, I was so excited to try Giga Guide Lines and Mish's notepads/Take Note set. Here's my quick first try (I wanted to be able to attach a pen, so I left a loop on the side with the ribbon which ties all the way around):

This card is one I quickly came up with for others to mass produce at a craft night for my church next month. It uses my favorite PTI color combination--Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet and Dark Chocolate. I looked and looked for the right size sentiment for the label, and I decided that one of my faves from Stampin' Up--Sincere Salutations--would do nicely. I added a little sparkle to the centers with a clear Stardust pen.

  1. Cheryl--these are both absolutely beautiful!! I love the pen tab on the notebook! I wish I could have gotten giga GL, but I couldn't afford it all unfortunately!

  2. Oooh, very pretty Cheryl! Great colour combo and the ribbon holding the pen is a lovely touch!

  3. These are beautiful!! I'm so glad I decided to order Giga GL, can't wait to get it!

  4. That color combo *is* pretty! Love the Giga pattern. Thanks for the inspiration. I opened mine and my mind went completely blank, so I need to go back and check all of the dt blogs.

  5. Very pretty! I got the same sets this month. I cant wait to see all the great things you come up with. Congrats on your GSS win.

  6. Nice job. I really wanted that set but passed on it because I could not afford 3 this month. It is still in my cart though. Thanks for the inspiration.
    By the way congrats on your GSS win!

  7. So jealous that you are playing with your new stuff! No order for me this month!

    These are awesome and I love the hair cut!

  8. Love the two projects! The colors are so pretty together!

  9. love it Cheryl...I missed out on the PTI this month...booooo

  10. I love how you used that Giga stamp, so pretty. I can't wait to make a notebook, I really like how you tied the pen to the side. Great idea!

  11. I just got my PTI notepads in the mail yesterday. Now I'm even more excited to get playing with them. Great idea with the pen attached outside the pad. Love your 'clean' style as well!

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
