Dollar Tree Gift Bag Big Happy Planner Cover for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is only one month away, so I figured I would make my cover now and enjoy it for at least two months (I made it a week ago)!

This one was a first for me though! Why you ask? Well, it is because I made this planner cover out of a gift bag I bought last year from Dollar Tree! Yes, a one dollar bag! The back cover I made using Stampin’ Up! (SU!) Designer Series Paper (DSP) Fancy Frost. Below are the simple steps used to make this cover. Enjoy!

Card Candy: Jar of Love & VIDEO

I have been waiting to do this post for a while now, but just didn't have the right stamp set to use for my first one! Once I got my Jar of Love stamp set, I knew it was the one!

What is Card Candy you ask? Card Candy is simply pre-made embellishments that are ready to go when needed.

When made for others, it usually comes in a set, packaged in a bag with a topper, and each piece is coordinated with each other. When finished, you stick dimensionals (or your choice of adhesive) on the back and leave the backing on it so that whoever you are giving it to can keep it safe from sticking to anything until ready to use.

Hello Card and Homemade DSP

Last week I published this post, sharing a card that I made with what I call "homemade dsp". I took a piece of cardstock and using a stamp set of my choice, and some ink, created a design, making it look like it's designer series paper.

I also shared this photo (see below) as a sneak peak, using the same stamp set used in that post, just using different colors.

August Do-Over: Thank You Card and Homemade DSP

Back in July, I started a challenge of my own called the Do-Over Challenge. I decided that each month I am going to take a card that I made a few years ago, when I first became a demonstrator and re-do it, with a little creative freedom of course. The challenge is that the card I am redoing has to have at least one retired stamp or color and I have to create a new card using current stamps and current colors.

Check out the first Do-Over Challenge here.

This month I am redoing the card below that I made using the old Secret Garden stamp set.

Balloon Celebration Congratulations Card

Balloon Celebration Congratulations Card

This week's card is featuring only one stamp set, Balloon Celebration, and three of the five 2016 - 2018 In Colors. This set is the second set that I saw posted EVERYWHERE that I knew I had to get to replenish my current SU! collection .

A lot going on with this card, but I think it looks good! All sorts of colors, shapes, and patterns.

And of course a card isn't completed without a little something something on the inside...
