Wow - it's been a long time. Truthfully, I don't stamp as much as I used to. When I do, I do it for classes or clubs and rarely take the time to create for the simple act of creating and I seldom take the time to post what I have created when I do find those rare bursts of creativity. This project was inspired by the colour of the lantern and was a spin off of the card set that we made for our club meeting that month. I made a small card set to fit inside and added a candle for a complete gift set. I have a few more projects that need to be done this summer, so hopefully I'll find my mojo again. Until then, thanks for looking!
Stamps: Watercolor Wings

Finally, each of the baby photos conceals hidden journalling written by each of us telling Mom what she means to us.
The flower on the top of the box was created using the Blossoms punch (and a couple others).
Ink & Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip

I've been waiting for Spring for awhile now, but it seems like it will still be a bit of a wait. In the meantime, I will have to be content with playing with Spring colours and flower stamps. These Pop-Up Card boxes are everywhere now. Here's my first attempt.

- Punch 4-5 flowers from the Blossom Punch
- Colour the edges with a marker. I used Calypso Coral
- Spray each until the colour starts to run and set aside to dry.
- Stack the flowers and poke a brade through the centre.
- Crumple the flowers and position petals into place.
Stamps: Loving Thoughts, All Holidays (retired), Travel Journal Wheel, Secret Garden (leaves kissed with the oval from Oh Hello)
Cardstock & Ink: Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette

I created this album using the "My Little Valentine" Stamps and the included "Sealed with Love" Simply Sent Kit. Some of the pages are made from the envelopes which can be removed from the album and opened up.
The cover is made from the chipboard that was included in the kit and covered with DSP from the Sycamore Street Sale-a-bration paper pack. The buttons and ribbon are also from the Sycamore Street Collection. I also made use of the "Hearts a Flutter" Bundle for this project.
Even after filling the entire album, I still had pieces left from the kit. I created three more note cards using my leftover scraps to go in the leftover envelopes. Who knew that a simple little kit could go so far?
Thanks for looking!
