Big on You All Abloom

Big On You All Abloom Stampin UP MidnightCrafting
Using up the last of my All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack! Great floral set of paper in beautiful colors! I stuck to the blues and greens for this set so I could use up some of my Pistachio Pudding Card Stock too. Added the Beautiful Wings and Little Pieces Embosslits (also retiring!) as accents, in Daffodil Delight and Pistachio. The Big on You stamp set is such a nice size for some simple cards.

I love that the Designer Series Paper Stacks are just the right size to decorate a card front AND embellish the envelopes!

Envelope Punch Board Note Card Set & Sneak Peek

Park Lane Envelope Punch Board Note Card Set MidnightCrafting
Always a sad task for me, I finally went through my stamp sets to pull up the ones that are retiring. I loved finding this set, though, and deciding it stays in the Keep pile! This is one of those really useful sets that will last. It has the ever needed Thank You's in cute, but not overly trendy, phrases and fonts. There are a variety of sizes, so it will work for many different layouts. Yup. A Keeper.
Park Lane Envelope Punch Board Note Card Set MidnightCrafting

The set of note cards I'm sharing today use the Park Lane Designer Series Paper, also retiring June 2nd. I have to admit. I'm going to stock up on this one (at this writing, it is still in stock! Fingers crossed my order gets there before they run out!). I love the patterns, both girly and masculine in the same set. The color scheme is good also, with a nice sampling of current colors.
Park Lane Envelope Punch Board Note Card Set MidnightCrafting

To make these note cards, I cut down 12x12 paper into 3"x 8" strips, folded to 3x4". This is economical, you can get 6 from a sheet. This size is necessary to use the Wood Mount Half Case Boxes (replacement cases, to store small wood mount stamp sets) as a box for my note cards. The box can hold a little larger, but then I added the economy of getting 4 envelopes out of a single 12x12" sheet, and well... It is nice to have such easy cuts!
Park Lane Envelope Punch Board Note Card Set MidnightCrafting

Using the Envelope Punch Board you can make ANY SIZE envelope out of your own paper. From 2x3.5" gift Card size, up to 6x8.5", it uses regular card stock, Designer Series Paper, and now - well, soon!! Coming June 2nd! - the new packs of Envelope Paper! I got these in the new In Color shades to test them. Very nice price point at $6 for 20 sheets! That's alot of pretty envelopes! The paper is a little lighter weight than the Designer Series Paper, but still really good pattern mix and it took to the punching and scoring perfectly. Definitely one to add to your Wish List, it comes in the 2015-16 In Color Pack, and Neutrals with Whisper White, Kraft, and Very Vanilla - perfect to embellish with your choice of stamps!

Park Lane Envelope Punch Board Note Card Set MidnightCrafting
Anyhow. Finished up the note cards with a simple card stock belly band. I think they're very clean, simple, and can be used for men and women. They are just the right size to tuck a gift card into, which can come in handy!!

Back to the stacks to see what other fun sets I can keep!!

Love You A Lot Paper Pumpkin Alternate April 2015 MidnightCrafting Mini album

Since Mothers Day is fast approaching, and last months kit wasn't all that mothers day-ish, I set out to make something for Mom out of this kit. Oh and I am so tickled with the results!! I even have enough to make one for Dad!! Squeeeee!! I do love a versatile project!
Love You A Lot Paper Pumpkin Alternate April 2015 MidnightCrafting Mini album

Its a Mini Album. I can tuck a gift card, or two, into the pockets. Its got room for sweet notes to my mom. Its got cute photos she can display. I <3 it="" p="">

I used 4 of the pocket cards to create the album. I used the Blue card bases for this one, and I'll use the yellow for my Dad's. I created an accordion binding for the book by scoring a card base every 3/4" from the short edge. I then scored at about 1.25" from the opposite edge to create the overlay bind on the outer edge.
 
Love You A Lot Paper Pumpkin Alternate April 2015 MidnightCrafting Mini album

The pages are tucked into the valleys, with the pockets all facing the same but for the last page, to keep it on the inside of the album. I secured this with double sided tape (Stampin' Up! Snail worked great!) and then decorated the pockets and added the embellishments. I used mainly the blue accent pieces, and mixed in the yellow stamps.

I love how I can use the MOM stamp to say WOW too! That will be useful!!

Painted Blooms Work of Art Bag o'Thanks

Painted Blooms Work of Art MidnightCrafting StampinUp Box bag set
Painted Blooms Work of Art - Bag in a Box Card Set
The schools are hosting Open House this week. Its still fundraising time, so I'm donating a couple of card making kits, and this little bag of Thank You note cards to the Raffle for my son's school. Its a mash-up inspired by Chaki Haverstick's Satchel Purse set, and loosely following this great Bag in a Box tutorial by Caroline Hallett.

I used the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper and, while it does coordinate with Blackberry Bliss, I used Rich Razzleberry for the accent cardstock. There are six note cards and embellished envelopes in this little bag, with a cute tag to gift the note cards or to fill the bag with something else, or to use entirely on another gift altogether! Choices!! lol
Painted Blooms Work of Art MidnightCrafting StampinUp Box bag set

I wanted a different size than the cute little handbag Caroline makes, so I used a Rich Razzleberry cardstock base of 6"x 2.5" and two pieces of Designer Series Paper, one 4"x 12" and one 4" x 8". The handles are 1"x 12" of cardstock, with a cute little Antique Brads (lucky to get 4 each in a pack!) to accent the handles. I also used my White Stampin' Chalk Marker to add some faux stitching dots to the handles. For the trim on the base I used a 3/4" strip punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch, and the top trim is a 3/4" strip punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. Sticky Strip holds this dainty piece together.

I used the same layout, roughly, as Chiaki did on her card sets, but I used the Work of Art stamp set to add the sentiments, and the flowers are from the Occasions Catalog stamp set Mothers Love. I stamped them in Blackberry Bliss.

The tag for the bag is made using the Scalloped Tag Topper, the Artisan Label Punch, and the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I made the DSP open up so you can add a note. I used yellow to accent the set, 1/4" Cotton Ribbon in Daffodil Delight, and the tag uses some Sale-A-Bration Thick Bakers Twine in Hello Honey.

It all came together well, don't you think? A nifty little gift set.
