    4/14 Tuesday Editions of Coffee and Cards

    They almost did not all fit! Dang you guys had me working for it today, hahaha!! I know, I did it to myself, right?? That Pressed Petal DSP made quick work of it though didn’t it? All these beauties with one piece of 12 x 12. These were the ones that we made during the video, mixed up the colors a bit too. No waste either. Lots of scraps used too! Keeping several of the cards a little simpler, but that DSP does so much why would you add too much?? Yeah, you know that I did…. Ribbon!!! I do love me some ribbon… although this was mostly twine. Twine…

    Perennial Birthday Folder

    Here is the second project from Girls Night. Do you have a tough time keeping track of birthday?? I sure do. Yes, there are apps for that and yes there are calender’s for that … BUT.. This is just so much more FUN!! This PDF will be included with the Talented Tutorial Team bundle for all purchases made over $40. WoooHooo!! However, I will admit that the months are from a retired set. (yes, sadly, and I am sorry). In addition to the retired months, the “lined” paper is not cardstock. Wanting to be able to add to the backside. I love the front though. My favorites butterflies in Crumb…

    Pressed Petal for Coffee and Cards

    Sooo much fun playing with scraps on Coffee and Cards this morning! The Pressed Petal DSP has 24 sheets double sided (149500). All of the above pieces were scraps. Even the layering pieces. The only full pieces are the card bases. Do you ever look at a stack of scraps and wonder what to do?? Check out the live for ideas…. Did you get a few ideas?? I sure hope so! Now let’s take a closer look at each of the ideas. Starting with the card on the left… This was what started this whole idea. I had the strip of “script” paper and laying by it was the flower…

    Note Cards and Thank You

    I needed a quick thank you… Thank goodness for the Note Card & Envelopes (144236). I had some of the Pressed Petal DSP (149500), then add some Whisper White Metallic Edge ribbon (144213). Ohhh wait, that little bit of vellum (101856) which was punched out with the Pretty Label Punch (143715). Done, and can I just tell you this card took longer to cut then assemble. Tooo cute and so darn pretty!! Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    Journal – Old Paper Pumpkin – part 1

    I wanted to work on the new Journal (pg 73) that is part of the Pressed Petal Suite (152193) wouldn’t you know… so busy making sure I did not forget anything on my orders for customers, that I forgot to order the Journal (149588). So making the best of it… I decided that maybe this OLD Paper Pumpkin could work. I have been wanting to put something together with parts of this kit anyway… Knowing that the plan was to use the Pressed Petal DSP (149500), a few colors needed to be changed. Using Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry. The patterns did not go either, but…

    Pressed Petal Coffee and Cards 6/22

    We missed you at Coffee and Cards 6/22, want to catch the replay? Here is your link… My mom was a helper this morning. It was fun! Working with the Pressed Petal DSP (149500) and how easy these cards came together! Here are some particulars… All three cards use the same paper pack, this one also has a sentiment from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp set (148732). Wondering where that ribbon came from?? That is the Whisper White Flax Ribbon, dyed with Mossy Meadow (133651) ink refill. Using the same Mossy Meadow Flax ribbon, this 3 x 3 is super quick, a 2 3/4 by 2 3/4 DSP piece, a…
