Smitten Mittens Memory Keeping

Smitten Mittens Memory Keeping

Hello Friends,

You've probably guessed by now that the Smitten Mittens and Hug in a Mug are the 2 retiring stamps sets from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog that I will miss the most.   I knew the moment that I first saw the Smitten Mittens stamp set that I would use it for Memory Keeping in addition to cards and other paper crafts.  Both Smitten Mittens and Hug  in a Mug are what I would classify as warm & fuzzy, cute stamp sets.  Maybe that's why they work so well together.


Hug in a Mug Memory Keeping

The adorable children in today's layout are 2 of my precious grandchildren, Grady and Brooke.  I chose to make a Pink Pirouette Heart with my Sweet & Sassy Framelit Dies to coordinate with Brooke's mittens.  It's also a cute place to add some text to my layout.

 
Memory Keeping Stampin' Up!

The Black & White buffalo plaid paper mirrors Grady's cap, plus I am quite fond of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper.  The red mittens were cut with the Many Mittens dies that coordinate with the Smitten Mittens stamp set.  How many pictures of children in mittens do have in your stash?

You may recognition this Smitten Mitten Card from a previous blog post.  It was my design inspiration for today's Memory Keeping layout of Grady and Brooke.  

This card can also be made with some of the same supplies that I used for today's Scrapbook Layout.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for a complete list of supplies to make today's project.

Handmade Card for a 3 Year Old

Handmade Card for a 3 Year Old

Hello Friends,

One thing that I love about making handmade cards is that you can personalize them.  For week's now our Granddaughter, Brooke, has been telling us that she wants Pink  and Purple and Blue Balloons and donuts with sprinkles for her birthday.  Every time we talk to her, she rattles off the same colors, so thought that it might be fun to make a Birthday Card with Pink and Purple and Blue balloons.  Believe it or not, I fussy cut the bears, the squirrel and the bunny from the Birthday Memories Designer Paper.  The Birthday Friends dies cut the balloons, presents and hats.

Brooke

 

Who can resist a face like that?  Brooke loved helping me baking on our last visit to her house.  The flour on the end of her nose only adds to her charm.  Happy 3rd Birthday, Brooke!

Personalized Birthday Card

I made the her Birthday Card extra big (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") because kids seem to think big is better.  Inside I inked up stamps from the Birthday Delivery stamp set in....you guessed it....Pink and Purple and Blue inks.

You're Awesome

Coffee Cafe Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

You're Awesome!  I'm glad that you stopped by to take a peek.  Today's card was made with the Coffee Cafe stamp set, the Great Big Greetings Stamp set and the Quilted Christmas designer series paper stack.  I'm not a big coffee drinker (shocking, I know), but I really am fascinated with the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups framelits dies.  Let your imagination decide what's in your cup.

Heat Embossing Transforms Your Cards

Stamping the top on vellum and embossing in white makes a really sweet top to place over what looks like creamy goodness.

While I had my heat tool out, I performed just a little more Heat Embossing magic with my Great Big Greeting sentiment "You're Awesome".  This time the embossing was done in Gold.

Brennan

It's been a crazy, busy summer and autumn here at our house.  I just got back from a week of catching up with family in Florida and this week, I've been busy making memories with this little guy.  Brennan just turned 6 this month and was quite anxious for his  turn at Nana and Papa's house.  I feel so blessed that I am able to adapt my work schedule to allow time for the truly important things in life. 

If you're looking for a way to bring in a little extra cash over the holidays with an adjustable work schedule, I'd love to talk to you about becoming a Stampin' Up! DemonstratorFind out More Here.
