World of Dreams Silhouette Handstamped CARD by Loralee

My stamping sister Loralee Parish created this exquisite stunning card using the Stampin' Up! World of Dreams stamp set and new In-Colors.  She did such an awesome job I just had to share it with you.

World Of Dreams Clear-Mount Stamp Set                                                
Price: $20.00 #134186                                                                                                    
Silhouette images are so fun for embossing and highlighting all the shapes it's so easy to forget. Use these leaves, orchids, birds in a branch, and a couple of delightful wood mount phrases any place you want to make a bold statement.

SU clear-mount stamps are made of the same high-quality red rubber as our wood-mount stamps, but they're repositionable. They're pre-cut and ready to go. Temporarily mount these stamps on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for space-saving storage. You'll only need one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately). Our premium red rubber will last for years and give a superior stamped impression each time. The stamps come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

                             Loralee CASed this card from the new SU 2015-2016 catalog, page 195.
                              (CASE = Copy And Share Everything)

I loved how she fussy cut out the stamped silhouette image of the love birdies using Stazon jet black ink. Her card should've been the one show cased in the catalog ... don't you agree?

Put a Ring-On-It Organizing Embellishments

My huge goal this year is to work more on my Project Life Memory Keeping projects and get those pictures into albums.  I had to find a solution to organize all of my embellishments from the many enamel dots to all the designer embellishments, alphabets you name it.  My embellishments were sorted by type in drawers, containers, jars but I tend to forget what I have especially if I can't see them, I can't visualize them totally out of sight, out of mind.  So what I did I put a Ring-On-It!

Binding rings are a great addition to your stash of supplies. 7 Gypsies brought them out to hold together their book board books but you could use them for many other things. Since they open and close easily, hang samples together, or tags, even keys.  Pick a size and a color and bind all your dreams together.  Here are my little dreams of goodies.
Put a ring-on-it! Combined all my little stamps of Heidi Swapp, Ali Edwards for Project Life. 
Put a ring-on-it!  Collection of one little words

This is what the packaging looks like using the 7Gypsies Binding Rings 
at any local craft supply store.
Antique Brass 10 pc- Measures approximately 1.5" in diameter.  

  • Perfect for binding all of your custom creations.
  • Antique brass
  • 10 per pack
  • Easy open & closePut a ring-on-it!  Stuffed a bag with little designer clips, cloths pins, Number clips

  • Put a ring-on-it! More stamps!
    Put a ring-on-it!  Variety of enamel dots
    Put a ring-on-it!  Die cut frames, patterned envelopes, Kraft and vellum envelopes embellishments
    For me it helps to remember the manufacturer by saving the 
    packaging... just put a ring-on-it!
    Selection of single alphabets ... put a ring-on-it!
    Your all set for the next crop and your embellishments will fit perfect in a 12" x 12" inch plastic scrapbook container or they can be placed nicely Easy-to-See in your Raskog cart.
    Jazz up an old clip board with organizing flair buttons!
    NOW on for a Blog Hop! I was asked by my SU upline  Brenda KeenanKeenan Kreations -  to participate in a blog hop and to answer these questions:

    What are you working on?
    At the moment I’m working on a few things. It’s kind of hard when you have to work full time and work gets in the way but I look for the time.  Working on years of photos that need to placed into albums.  Project Life® is an ultra-simple, stylish solution for getting your photos off your phone and computer, out of boxes, and into albums - See more at:
    How does your work differ from others in your genre?

    I try hard to create pretty cards.  I try hard to create nice scrapbook layouts that I’d want others to like, hopefully, others will want to try it out for themselves. You can do it!
    Why do you create what you do?

    Don’t just create for others.  I create for me.  It makes my heart smile. 
    How does your creativity process work?

    Don’t say you don’t have enough time. We’re all busy, but we all get 24 hours a day. People often ask me, “How do you find the time?” And I answer, “I look for it.” You might have to miss an episode of your favorite TV show, you might have to miss an hour of sleep, but you can find the time if you look for it.

    Enjoy & Share!

    Flair Button Embellishment Organization Clipboard At-A-Glance

    Organizing flair buttons for your Project Life memory keeping projects. 
    Putting the flair on Project Life. 
    There has been some discussion lately about organizing and storing flair buttons (badges) so I thought I’d share how I’ve decided to store mine.  
    I wanted to find a way to organize my flair button embellishments where I can see them all at once.  If I store them in a glass jar or small container I will never see them.  Out of sight out of mind.  

    DIY simple flair button embellishment clipboard
    I jazzed up a plain clipboard and then displayed my flair buttons all in a row.  
    I adhered Mod Podge onto a sheet of card stock.  Applied the card stock to the clipboard, let dry.
    Used scraps of ribbon to decorate the top of the clipboard.
    Adhered rows of sticky strip top to bottom as shown below in photo.  
    Applied my flair button collection onto the sticky strip,
    Rows and rows of flair buttons at-a-glance!
    You can hang your clipboard to a wall or place it in a storage box and take it with you to your next crop.  Clipboard fit's perfect in a 12" x 12" inch plastic scrapbook container as shown below.

    Accessories: Clipboard, Mod Podge Acrylic Seeker Gloss, Scissors, Sponge, Card Stock, Ribbon, Sticky Strip
