Gingham Birthday

I have a person to celebrate today with a birthday, so I put together a card yesterday for her. Might as well share it here, right?


Maile's new Sentiment Splits stamps and dies make the quickest, most stylish cards ever. I'm into quick right now and these fit the bill. I've got three of the four dies. Can't wait to get the fourth. 


I used paper cuts of the Floral Cluster Die from my Quick Stitch Kit: Sewing Staples to add some dimension on the front. I mentioned this was a quick card, right? But I sewed it? Well, that's easy to do when you are multi-tasking. I put all the bits and pieces at my kitchen island and just waited for a lengthy phone call. I sewed these all while talking to my mom. If I'm doing two things at once, the time doesn't count right?


The inside is stamped with Inside/Out: Birthday II and the exclusive stamp set from the Quick Stitch Kit: Sewing Staples. Just to carry over the theme from the front and show you how both the dies and stamps can be used together on a single project. .

And that's it from me on a beautiful Sunday morning. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Quick Stitch Kit: Design-A-Softie Sneak!



It's that time again! Hard to believe. Perhaps my excitement and the fun of the April release has sped things up a bit. It's all good in any case. I'm so looking forward to bringing you the Quick Stitch Kit: Design-A-Softie on May 1st at www.papertreyink.com, that I can hardly wait.



This kit was one that I didn't think was even possible. Not that the designing was difficult, but rather, there are lots of bits and pieces for maximum versatility. The kit format is perfect for that! It is all about making adorable, cute, and highly personalized stuffed felt animals and lovies for the kids in your lives. So many options for your creativity to soar. You could make these for years and not have one come out looking like another. The kids in your life will be delighted when they receive these homemade gifts. Or, if they are anything like my kids, will be eagerly watching every stitch and giving input along the way. And Mama better photograph 'em quick, because they've been wanting them as soon as I tie off the last thread. It's our own Build-A-Bear right here at home.


I love making the softies for all the same reasons I enjoy the other stitching die projects I've done over the last few years.  For my kids, however,  it is a special type of magic. The looks on their faces, as they stand right by my side as I put these together, has been one of wonder and delight. Just typing that out makes me smile uncontrollably. We are all enjoying this kit in ways I hadn't anticipated.

So stop by back here on the last day of April for lots of softie inspiration. And start making your own softies when the kit becomes available May 1st at www.papertreyink.com. I promise you'll be smiling too.

Check out more sneaks on Nichole's blog. The girls are blowing me away!

Quick Pint Wrap

Didn't all the girls on the Papertrey Ink design team do amazing yesterday with Seeds of Knowledge, the Pencil Blooms, and Pint Sized Wrap? It was such a delight to click through all their posts and see such creativity! I can hardly wait to make another pencil bouquet.

I've just got one quick project for you today using the pint containers and Pint Sized Wrap. My dad helped me out recently by completely rebuilding three drawers in my daughter's trundle bed. Definitely something that was worthy of a good thank you. Fortunately, with the help of these new products, I was able to pull it all together in just a few minutes. Didn't take me much longer than twenty, really.


Yesterday was all about the pints used as flower pots. You saw the other day how I used one with the clear domes and filled it with mini cards. Today, we're going basic with a pint used as a food container. And it's a masculine one to boot.

I cut the circle in Pint Sized Wrap twice, once in Enchanted Evening and another time in Spring Rain. I then took the smaller rectangle die from Stitched Bookmark, centered it on the Spring Rain circle, and cut again. Now I have a dotted strip with the curves on the side.

It is stamped with a sentiment from Handy Hardware and I used silver card stock to cut the word "Dad" out of the Upper Case Block Alphabet.



The body of the wrap was cut with Pint Size Wrap and stamped with the tools from Handy Hardware. Really turned out looking so neat.


What's inside? A full pound of Planter's Cocoa Almonds. It's a very generously sized gift. (I was thinking yesterday it would be awesome filled with coffee beans. And we have a few coffee themed stamp sets that would be cute.) The joke here is that I keep a three pound carton of these in my pantry from Sam's at all times. They are my morning snack. And my father tries his best to eat as many as possible whenever he comes over. Total pantry raid. Just helps himself. LOL! It's a big of a running joke. So, he knew exactly was was inside the container without even opening it yesterday.

The pint containers are made of a thick waxed paper. SO NICE because they can hold oily (i.e. nuts) or moist items (i.e. baked goods) without leaking or staining the container. And oh-so sturdy. They are designed to hold a full pound of ice cream, after all.

That's it from me. Thanks for stopping by. The pints and the Pint Size Wrap will be available tomorrow night at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com. They are certainly handy to have around.

Seeds of Knowledge

Welcome to Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink Countdown. The team is featuring my new Seeds of  Knowledge stamp set and dies, Pint Sized Wrap, and Pencil Blooms. I'm a lucky girl and can't wait to see what all the girls have been up to.

I've got a project of my own to share. I mentioned the other day that Seeds of Knowledge is a garden-themed teacher appreciation set. The idea was that a bouquet of pencils could be given along with it. Thus, the creation of the Pencil Bloom Dies. These are flower dies with a hole through the middle that perfectly fits a standard No. 2 pencil. And then I was driving down the road thinking this pencil bouquet needed a home one day and pondering how that could be accomplished. Ice cream must have been on my mind, which isn't a stretch, because the idea of using 16 ounce (pint) plain ice cream containers popped into my head. (My previous career was one of a cancer research tech for the National Cancer Institute and we actually used these things all the time to keep samples on ice while out of the deep freeze...how's that for some weird melding of my two careers? First time that's happened. Trust me, let's hope it is the last!)  And then, if only we could wrap them up? Boom! We've got the Pint Size Wraps. You'll see how everything came together to make some great projects.



Here's a look at the whole ensemble. My sweet neighbor popped through my back slider yesterday afternoon, saw this sitting on my kitchen table, and went nuts. It is all very impressive when together and in real life. If you are looking to spoil some teachers, this is the way to do it. Pretty, clever, and so very practical. Just how I like 'em.


Here's my card. I used Pencil Me In to create my pencil background. I really wanted the card to reflect to contents of the bouquet and this was so easy to accomplish using the pencil stamp. The sentiment is from Seeds of Knowledge. And also in Seeds of Knowledge, are three sizes of this two-step flower. The petals and the dots are stamped separately, so you can definitely add some color to this. I have one Pencil Bloom flower at the top as the accent to my baker's twine.


Great sentiment, right? It has a lot of applications. I think it is beautiful for everyday use. But I also think it is appropriate for a special ed classroom/teacher or maybe words of encouragement for parents who are gifted with a special needs child. Every child is special and in the eyes of a parent, loved beyond belief for just who they are! Celebrate that.


Here's a shot of my bouquet from the top. I used 22 pencils that I bought in a pack of 24, pre-sharpened for less than $2. I used a piece of florist foam that I cut to fit inside the pint container. There is a circle die that is included in the Pint Size Wrap and I place that on top of the florist foam inside the container. Then I just started filling in my pencils. Because they are pre-sharpened, they pieced the paper and foam like butter.

Here's a hint, save all that Easter grass you've got laying around. It works great in a pencil bouquet. I raided my kids' baskets!

After I had my pencils in, I placed my Pencil Blooms. I honestly felt like a florist and was having a ball!


 This seal and sunburst are two separate images from Seeds of Knowledge. The seal in particular was designed for the pencil bouquets. Check out the "no. 2 variety" stamp. Love that touch.

Also, the seeds of knowledge seal fits our 1.75" Limitless Layers Dies and the sunburst fits the 2.5" Limitless Layers Circles.

Check out the pint container. It is covered two cuts of the Pint Size Wrap Die in the Pure Poppy Patterned Paper Collection. Very easy to do! The paper cuts slide underneath the rim of the container, making the pint container  look like it is printed this way.

I used the lid of the pint containers as my flower pot saucer. Two 8.5" x 0.5" strips of paper are used to cover it. Just use your trimmer.  I also think you could go to town here with your washi tape collection. Would be the perfect application.


Lastly, on just the outer ring of pencils, I double knotted small cuts of Simply Chartreuse Satin ribbon as leaves. It really helped fill out my bouquet and created more of an illusion that these are real flowers.

I've been thinking that lots of people would love a pencil bouquet. They are not just for teachers. What about kids on their first day of school? A teenager on the morning of taking the SAT? Somebody starting a new job or going back to school after a long absence? I personally can't wait to make them on the first day of tax season for my husband's staff next year. (Even if I'm so much closer to celebrating the end of tax season this week...WHOOPEE!!!!)  They'll look beautiful and cheery on a desk and even long after you start harvesting pencils to use, the bouquet will keep looking spiffy because I use so many pencils.

Hope you enjoyed. I love these little projects. More inspiration is just a click away. And remember, all these products and more will be available April 15th at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com.

Pencil Pouch Stitching Dies

It's  Day 3 of the Papertrey Ink April Countdown and I'm here to show you a new addition to my stitching die line up with the Pencil Pouch. We've got a ton of pencil themed products (more to come tomorrow!) this month. I just had to throw my two cents in.

At this point, I've done quite a few stitching projects. Each one has had its quirks and challenges on the design-side of things. The Pencil Pouch is the one I've felt I put the most design work into. Things are not just functional this time around. There was definitely decisions made for the sake of style and form. I'll always remember it as the stitching die that put me in a grouchy mood. LOL!  I just couldn't crack it initially. Spent a little time one rainy afternoon hammering away at Illustrator and got nowhere. Then I learned that I'm one of those creative types that gets grouchy when something doesn't work. I was fit to be tied making dinner that night over it. I'm throwing pots around, viciously cutting up carrots, took the potatoes beyond the word "mashed". I say this all with great amusement. Good thing I figured it out after a few days. I'd have hated to see what I would have done to some poor chicken breasts.

The initial idea that was floated by me was that Nichole wanted a pencil pocket to put on the front of the Moments Inked Planner. And that's what we've got for you today. But as with anything, once you start working with it, you see so many other possibilities. Let's start with the planner first, shall we?


As you can see, mission accomplished. Here is a Raspberry Fizz Pencil Pouch held to the Moments Inked Planner with a ruched elastic band. Small Basic Grey Magnets (you can get them at Amazon, free shipping if you've got Prime...they were cheaper a few weeks ago for some reason), are sewn into little pockets and keep it closed. There are other ways to to keep it closed, as the other girls and myself are going to show you today.

The magnets are hidden in the pockets. You can't see them when the Pencil Pouch is finished. The metal circles you are seeing here are merely a decorative add-on I found. You can get iron-on discs at your fabric store in the section with iron on patches and bedazzler supplies. These were purchased 30/$4, even less with a coupon. They simply iron on. Great little things. You'll see in one of the tutorial videos how they work.


The Pencil Pouch is one piece of felt that is folded up into thirds.


The folding creates a pocket to hold a pen or pencil inside. Here you see the cooresponding magnets on the inside that keep it shut.


One the back are two sewn rectangles that serve as channels for your elastic band to keep the Pencil Pouch attached to your planner. You can find 1/2" to 5/8" elastic at your local fabric store. The "fold over" stuff has seemed to become popular of late and comes in so many colors, styles, and patterns. You can have a lot of fun by making the type of elastic you choose part of  your overall design.

There is a simple and secure way to create the elastic loop included in the Pencil Pouch die. Don't worry, I've got you covered there!


The Pencil Pouch can also double as a bookmark with your planner by holding tight the pages you are finished with to the cover. Build in some extra slack into the elastic loop if you intend to use it this way. Come October you are going to need it!

Check out the elastic I used here. It is super fancy with a ruched texture. Nice, huh?

Now that you've seen the pictures of the first one, how about the basic assembly video so you can see how it comes together?



I mentioned above that there are alternative ways to close up the Pencil Pouch other than using magnets. I provided you dies in the Pencil Pouch Stitching Dies that allow you to sew in elastic bands anchored in the back that then hook over buttons sewn in the front. Just like this....


The elastic bands I'm using are hair bands. We all have them, all used them to put ponytails in our hair or the hair of our favorite little girls. You can find them anywhere, are super cheap, come in a nice range of colors, and look very finished because they are wrapped in nylon thread.

In addition to the Pencil Pouch Die, I designed the Pencil Pouch Trim Die that can be purchased separately. This die allows you to add an additional color layer to the front if you so choose. It is a nice option to have. I used it on this Pencil Pouch to add Heat'N'Bond treated floral fabric. Here's a video on how to work with that material.

My new personal policy when using fabric with stitching dies is to iron them on to a matching felt cut in Vintage Cream. So on this one, I cut the Pencil Pouch Trim out of fabric and Vintage Cream Felt. The Heat'N'Bond allowed me to iron them together and then I stitched it onto the main body of my Pencil Pouch. This just allows the color and pattern on the fabric to stay true, and not have the colors of the layer below show through, muddling the color of the print.



The elastic hair bands are sewn into channels on the back of the Pencil Pouch to anchor them securely.



This Pencil Pouch does not have a elastic loop sewn in the back to put it on the planner or notebook. Instead, it is very independent! I have a few cosmetics in it for my purse.

There has been a bit of discussion on the PTI DT forum about what additional items this item can hold in a ladies purse. I'm not shy about talking about some stuff, especially if it is super handy. Let's just say that there are items that a lady might need once a month that can be cleverly hidden in ones' purse this way and leave it at that. The Pencil Pouch is the perfect size. I'm sure ya'll know what I mean.

Here's a video to show you how to put in the elastic bands, how the Pencil Pouch Trim Die works, and some discussion on which sizes of hairbands to use and buy.



Here's a photo of the Pencil Pouch I made in the video.



I used some large polka dot buttons I got at a fabric store. Between hair band colors, elastic patterns, styles, and colors, felt vs. fabric, and buttons, you'll have a lot of fun designing with the Pencil Pouch Stitching Dies! There is so much possibility for variation and personalization.



For my last Pencil Pouch share, I have this one I made for my daughter. I took a composition notebook and covered it with Stamper's Select Cardstock. Then I just went to town stamping stars from Simple Stars and Super Stars stamp sets in shades of Tropical Teal, Aqua Mist, Royal Velvet, and Winter Wisteria. So much fun with this project!

I used the iron-on metal discs again.This time, instead of just placing them in the circles intended for the magnet pockets, I created a line of them right down the front. So snazzy.

And check out the elastic. Just pause for a second and appreciate the fact that glitter elastic even exists in this world. It is a thing of beauty.



I think my favorite part of this project is the use of the sentiment in Super Stars. The stamp set has these sentiments with dotted, curved lines that are designed to trail after a stamped star on your paper project. Here I have them trailing off of a star I put on the Pencil Pouch. LOVE it. Ties everything together.

For the star, it is cut out of Winter Wisteria felt with the Coffee Cozy Detail Dies. I also cut one out of Winter Wisteria paper. I sewed the two together, with the cardstock providing stability to the single layered felt star. Then I hot glued it to my Pencil Pouch. I'm sure when I ironed on that metal disc on the top of the star, the glue melted and merged into the felt even more, making a secure bond. Easy as pie.


Moving on, I have a bonus project today (like I did yesterday) using the Pencil Me In and Pencilgrams stamp sets as well as the Write Stuff Holder Dies being released this month. I created a cute little crayon gift using the Vintage Favor Box and Just a Little Something stamp set.

The Write Stuff Holder Dies are used on the surface of the Vintage Favor Box to hold three crayons. I made sure I lined the backside of this so the box contents don't show through. On top of the crayons, I made a label using Mat Stack 1 and Layerz Dies. Very thin Scor-Tape on the tops of the folded up parts of the Write Stuff Holder Dies keep it attached.

The sides of the box are stamped with the frames from Just a Little Something and inside I stamped my daughter's name using the new Pencilgrams set. Sweet!


Here's a look at the Mat Stack 1 label I created. I used all those fun doodles from Pencil Me In to create my own patterned paper. I then used the dies and stamps from Just a Little Something to create my focal point and banner. The sentiment is from Pencil Me In.


I cut four sheets of Stamper's Select White Cardstock into 2.5" squares to put in my box. Just little pieces of paper to draw and create with. This would be a good airplane gift or something to keep a child busy in a restaurant. And don't forget the "just because" gift...those sometimes are the best kind.

Thanks for joining me today. Here's a link back to Nichole's blog so you can see more projects. All these products will be available on April 15th at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com  if you are interested in adding them to your collection.

Day 2 of the April Countdown

I'm popping in today with a few projects featuring some of the items highlighted today on Nichole's blog for the April Papertrey Ink Countdown. She had a family emergency this month (no worries...it is all good!) and I was fortunate enough to have a few extra items in my box this month so I could pitch in with some extra blog candy. Ya'll don't mind, right? :) Who knows, you might see a hint or two about my new products coming out too this month.


First up a card featuring Betsy's new Shaker Shapes: Pencil Dies and Lexi's Pencil Me In Paper Collection. I can't get enough of that paper pad. I'll be ordering myself up a second and maybe a third! For the Shaker Shape: Pencil, I decided to keep it very simple and just created a solid, non-shaker pencil. Came together in a flash, as did the rest of this card.

As you will soon realize in a few days, I've got a thing for pencils. Especially fun patterned ones. Who doesn't really? Just seeing a pack in the dollar bin at Target releases those happy chemicals, I think. So just think of the fun you can have with patterned paper on this Shaker Shape. Large scale prints would work really well too since it's a bit on the chunky side of things.


I know we have a great many fans of the Wet Paint products. Here I used Wet Paint Cuts #3 and the Wet Paint #3 stamp set for my sentiment. I think the width and weight of the Wet Paint font matches really well with the size of the pencil lead on the die. Lots of possibility here with all the sentiments you could possibly use. And I'm a bit smitten with the doodles from Lexi's Pencil Me In Line. Super fun stuff.


Next up, a set that I will be inking up a lot, Dawn's new Lunchbox Love. I am so thrilled that Hank is reading and can benefit from a little lunchbox love himself. I made a bunch of mini notes using various sentiments. The notes are made from the Needle Book Stitching Dies (from the Quick Stitch: Sewing Staples Kit), Pencil Me In Paper Collection, and lined with Spring Moss cardstock. A two step apple from Apple Prints (great set that gets lots of use at my house) adds some color.


Great sentiments, right? Just a little bit of encouragement can mean so much on a bad day. And I really like that a lot of them can be used outside the school theme. Some of these would be very appropriate on adult encouragement cards. Goodness knows, we all have stinkers of a day and can use a little pick-me-up. I don't think we ever fully leave behind that inner kid, do you? :) And thank goodness for that!


All six fit inside a pint ice cream container. Very interesting, no?


And the pint container is covered so easily with paper? :) Get out of town!  The plaid was made by first stamping Simply Chartreuse ink on Spring Moss cardstock using Super Gingham. Using a ruler I added the red lines with a Copic and the white lines with a white gel pen. The white was done last and as you can see, it crosses over the top of all the colors. Kinda neat how that happened. The gingham pattern is completely transformed with the addition of those lines. The word "gingham" doesn't even pop into your head when looking at this. Surprised me how that happened.

If you saw a post from me last week, this project counts as #11 for my Chicken Scratch Project. I made a plaid with Super Gingham and pens...checking off that box.

A note on the plaid. I know some of you shy away from the background sets because you feel they are difficult to line up. I get that. It takes a little practice. Super Gingham is pretty easy on its own because of the wide bases, a cinch when using the Chicken Scratch Cover Plate. But, say you are trying to use it to make a background and have a little oopsies...turn it into a plaid like this instead by adding lines of color. Helps to camouflage the mistake and you can still use what you are working on.


I've got something for all you globe-o-philes. This was my very first one. FUN stuff. Every member of my household, including the hubby, seems to be fascinated by it. I used the partial die cutting technique I was recently refreshed on with a Make-It-Monday video of Laura's, to partially die cut the truck from Special Delivery and stamped it to turn it into a school bus. Fits well underneath the globe. I think I might be addicted like the rest of you.

There is some die cut letter confetti in this globe that I cut using the Shaker Shapes: Pencil. Just keeping with the school theme.

I'm thinking you could use the various style trucks from Special Delivery to make all sorts of gifts like this. These pint containers have a lot of room in them. I need to wrap up a pair of baby booties in one (with ample room to spare...throw in some socks, a binky, and travel sized diaper creme too) and  top with a globe covering the diaper delivery truck. Or have you seen those ice cream flavored and shaped marshmallows that come out this time of year for summer? Would look cute inside a container with an ice cream truck under the globe. Thinking you could use the school bus again on the last day of school and put summer themed stuff in the pint container like bubbles, candy, sun screen, ice cream money, and chalk. Maybe a jump rope? Hmmmm...excited about this.


Here's a  photo of the whole thing together. I used the Medium Scallop Border Die to cut the Pure Poppy around the lid of the container. It's wrapped also with black and white baker's twine. This gift is headed to Hank's teacher this week as a "just because". She loves to send encouraging notes home and can put the six mini-notes I created to use. I just did six in the interest of time, but you could probably fit double of that in the container without bending any.

I've also been thinking that a gift of the Lunchbox Love stamp set, an acrylic block, and an ink pad or two would make a great teacher gift as well. Who knows, maybe you'll make somebody a stamper:).

That's it for me. Looking forward to what I have to show you tomorrow! Remember, all these new products will be available on April 15th at 10 PM EST at www.papertreyink.com.

Day 1 of Seeds of Knowlege

It's April Release time at Papertrey Ink. I've got a few things coming your way this month and I'm here to share a card with you using my new Seeds of Knowledge stamp set and dies.

Teacher Appreciation Week is in May. May also brings flowers, spring, and renewal. Why not tie the two themes together? Seeds of Knowledge is a teacher appreciation set designed around gardening and flowers. You'd be surprised with how well the two come together.



All these images are from Seeds of Knowledge. The flowers were stamped twice. Stamped once and turned a few degrees and stamped again without re-inking.  And then you have an additional detail with the dot stamps. Lots of fun to have here.


There is a large sunburst image that fits the 2.5" Limitless Layers Circle Dies. For the solid center, I used a stencil made from a 1.75" Limitless Layers Circle and sponged ink to create the solid sun. The word "teacher" is stamped and die cut and stamped brackets frame it. Those brackets would look great with so many images and stamps in your collection! And there are a few more frame like images in the set that can be used in the same way.

A rustic watering can spills out water on the flowers as well.


The inside sentiment (which would be great on the front too) is stamped on Lexi's new Pencil Me In Paper, reinforcing both the gardening and teaching theme. YAY!

Lots more to come. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I had to share.
