CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Favorite New Preorder Product

Good Morning, Stampers!

The Create with Connie and Mary design
team are playing with new products today!
The new annual catalog goes live next week and the team
is excited to share with you a few of the new 
items that are coming...


You are going to absolutely love the detail
in the Greenery embossing folder duo.
I swiped the Versamark pad across the embossed
cardstock and then sprinkled gold embossing powder
and heat set. It's hard to tell from the photo, but
the gold is so sparkly. It really shows the 
depth and dimension! 


I kept the little elements to a minimum so not to
take away from the embossing. I added a few simple 
embellishments and tied it all up with the Forever
Greenery trim. That vanilla open weave ribbon is so easy
to work with and lays so nicely!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Lovely You*
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Very Vanilla, Just Jade*, Just Jade DSP*, Gold Foil
Accessories: Forever Greenery Trim*, Greenery Embossing Du*o, Gold Glitter enamel dots, Nature's Thoughts dies, Layering Circles dies, Gold Embossing Powder, Heat tool

What's Old is New Again

Good Morning, Stampers!


This week's project is an "oldie but goodie".
Ive made these several times over my 20 years of 
paper crafting and its always well-received.
These are so much fun to make!



I started with a 4" x 6" clear acrylic frame. 



With a little designer paper and embellishments, its a 
fun post-it note holder. These make great gifts!

I started by sliding a 4" x 6" piece of Flowers for All Seasons
designer paper to the inside of the frame.


To create the pen holder, I cut a 2" x 7" piece of  Misty
Moonlight cardstock and  scored at 4 1/4", 4 3/4", 5 1/4", 5 3/4".
Then, I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.


Then, I folded along the score lines and secured using Tear and
Tape to hold firmly. Then, use the Tear and Tape to adhere to the
frame. Finish up with a sentiment and embellishments.
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Butterfly Gala
Ink: Misty Moonlight
Paper: Whisper White, Misty Moonlight, Flowers for All Seasons
Accessories: Tastefl Textle embossing folder, Butterfly Duet punch, Lovely Labels Pick-A-Punch,
Misty Moonlight ribbon
