Hope you had a wonderful Easter. This year, it was a quiet Easter for my husband and me so I was able to spend part of the afternoon in my craft cave. Since I could not spend endless hours crafting, I decided to make the Incredible Like You Project Kit. That’s the beauty of using a kit, they are great when you want to make projects fast. This kit is on the Last Chance product list and is available until June 3 or while supplies last. In my opinion, the photos in the Occasions Catalog do not do the cards justice. The cards are beautiful! The laser-cut overlays add a touch of elegance. The kit contains the materials to make 16 cards (four of each design). The project kit coordinates with the Incredible Like You Stamp Set. The sentiments in the stamp set are a couple of my favorites. However, it’s easy to substitute the sentiments and use your favorite stamp sets sentiments. Additional products you may need to complete the kit per the kit instructions are Coastal Cabana and Lovely Lipstick Classic Stampin’ Pads and Multipurpose Glue. Below the photos are a few added tips for assembly.
Here are a few alternative sentiments used. Plus, check out the lined envelope that is in the kit.
What’s even better, is the kit contains a reusable storage envelope.
Separate each of the card designs and the card elements into individual stacks
Select sentiments and stamp onto the appropriate size labels
Use the Take Your Pick for removing the glue dots included with the kit (or use your own mini glue dots).
To attach the laser-cut overlays, use small dots of multipurpose adhesive glue along the overlay edges. Remember, a little of the glue goes a long way!

It’s that time of year, so grab your favorites before they retire. The 2017-2019 In Colors will be retiring with the end of this year’s annual catalog. It’s always sad to say goodbye to some of the colors we have been using for the last two years. However, it also makes room for the new colors being released with the new 2019-2020 annual catalog.
There are a lot of products to consider. The retirement list comes out on April 15th. All of the retiring In-Colors are going to go fast. Especially the ink refills, markers and card stock. You can click on any of the pictures above to go to my online store here. Remember to think about the accessories and embellishments that have the In-Colors in them.
Since the card base is larger, a couple of cardstock layers fill the blank space. Tan and navy are a wonderful color combination. Therefore, Crumb Cake cardstock is sandwiched between the Night of Navy layers. Stamp the images from the Waterfront Stamp Set onto the Whisper White cardstock using a variety of classic stampin’ pad colors. Use a blender pen to soften any overlapping lines. The color selection for the card above includes Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry. When stamping the center mountain with the Crumb Cake ink, stamp off the image onto a scrap paper once before stamping onto the card. Stamp the mountains on the left and right without stamping off.
Birthday Wishes is cut from Night of Navy cardstock using Well Written Framelits Dies. TIP: attach a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the Night of Navy prior to cutting with the framelits. This makes it easy to add the sentiment to the card front.
The Waterfront Stamp Set is perfect for creating generic birthday cards and is my go to set for masculine themed cards. Order your supplies below under Project Materials.
Thanks for stopping by! See you on Friday with a new project idea.

With Sale-a-Bration ending soon, I would like to share one of my favorite Sale-a-Bration products from the catalog. The By the Bay stamp set is a beautiful stamp set for creating the most lovely Summer paradise cards. Just look at the images, close your eyes and imagine the beach, the water, and the waves. It’s a great image in our mind right? So why not make it an image you can look at often?
Not only are the images beautiful but they are lots of fun to color. For the card below, I used Shimmery White Cardstock for stamping the image onto and my Aqua Painter to color the image. I find it relaxing to sit and color. Even better is that I have never been brave enough to paint the front door of my house red, so I was able to fulfill my urge when coloring the door on the stamped image! The colors used for this project are listed under the Project Materials.
One of the cards below that you can see in the catalog also highlights what could be a beautiful sunset. I love the birds on the other card and soft coloring. Nothing but serenity when you look at these images.
So did you pick up this stamp set during Sale-a-Bration? If you didn’t, you still have time. Visit my online store today.
