The Stamp Review Crew; Nailed It

Nailed It banner

Welcome to another The Stamp Review Crew Hop!! We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who will be bringing you lots of ideas for one particular stamp set twice a month!! The 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, you can hop along from one blog to the next gathering all kinds of inspiration for one Stampin' Up! stamp set. Please note the blog doesn't officially start until Monday May 1 , 2017 so some of the links may not work.

If you are following the hop in order you just arrived from Jessica's BLOG where she showed you all something fabulous! We are featuring the Nailed It Stamp Set (W) item #143074 (C) item #143077 from the Occasions Stampin' Up! Catalog. Now, we choose the sets we are going to use for these hops up to 4 months in advance, so May is always a tough month for us. What we plan to use sometimes is retired before we can feature it, like the Build It dies that coordinate with this set. We decided to go forward with this set because the stamps are still available through May 22, 2017 at least (in the US and Canada only). And to provide ideas for those who already own the stamps and the dies. Enjoy!

Nailed It Card #1

To be ahead of the game this year I made a batch of Father's Day cards which now I am soo glad I did with all that has been going on with us! lol I just want to say thank you all for your prayers our family really appreciates it! I absolutely loved this bundle and it so fit us too!!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Ink the nails in Delightful Dijon and stamp onto a piece of Delightful Dijon card stock. Remember this is one of the incolors retiring this year!
  • I add 3 different layers of Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  • I inked the greeting in Basic Gray and stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. Then zipped it through the Big Shot with the Build It Framelits Dies to die cut it out. Placed onto the layer.
  • Next I added the Urban Underground Embellishments; one on each side of the greeting to finish it.

Nailed It Card #2

Next I made a stepped up version of the first one :) I made it exactly as the same as the first one with the exception of instead of stamping on the Delightful Dijon card stock I zipped it through the Big Shot with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Pretty cool right?

Supplies Used
Stamp: Nailed It
Ink: Delightful Dijon, Basic Gray
Paper: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Delightful Dijon, Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper
Acc.: Big Shot, Build It Framelits, Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder, Urban Underground Embellishments

 

Now you'll want to head on over to Heidi's Blog where I know you will love her project!!

Family Updates: Prayers Needed

Hello all,

I've been missing in action again. I have great news and not such great news. Life the last few years sure has been wild and not dull at all. I really feel I should write a book. lol This past week hubby's grandpa had a stroke :( it did effect his right side. The day of his stroke he gained some mobility back in his right leg and arm. It didn't effect his mind sharp as ever. lol His speech is a little slurred. We are so thankful as this could have been way worse!! My own grandma years ago suffered a VERY bad stroke and nearly died from it, so I was expecting it to be very bad since I have already gone through something like this on my side. However the next day he lost what had came back; since then he has gotten some mobility back in his leg. Today he will be accessed to see if he can be transferred to a rehab facility or not. He needs help with the walker and of course he is 85 so they may just transfer him to the nursing home where he will only get physical therapy once a week instead of everyday. For me that is frustrating because after my grandma in my opinion hubby's grandpa has a real chance to recovering enough from this to eventually go home. Just maddening and so stupid in my opinion I understand he needs more help than other's but seriously come on! Give the man a chance!! (ok off my soap box) Please pray that they take him to the rehab place.

Since I last posted my dad's infection got way worse. Pretty scary. They put in a pic line so everyday he gets a bag of liquid antibiotic that my mom does. He had a check up yesterday and I am happy to say the infection is looking better!! The hole/pocket has gotten a little smaller which is fantastic news it means it's healing. So hopefully it continues on that path but it will be a awhile before it's completely healed.

IMG_3557

Monday and Tuesday we got a nasty ice/snow storm. I can't tell you how fun that was. lol The week before in the high 50's grass was getting green and then this. lol

IMG_3565

We've had lots of babies starting to be born. Our first one came on Easter and Dad even got one born on his birthday. lol Yesterday 3 were born. Yay!! I am fine if they want to do that! lol Means the sooner calving is over! lol It was hard to get a picture since it was starting to warm up and be nice yesterday they were running all over and playing.

I know I have not been able to keep up and I just want to say a huge thank you to all of you for understanding and still selecting me as your demo. I am so exhausted by the end of the day that my body just can't keep going. I can't even begin to tell you all how much I appreciate your support!

April Month

This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made! If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. I am kinda sharing out of order. lol At the beginning of each month; each family has a box to open on the first of the month besides the random days we picked out of each month.  In this month box is a fact sheet we put together about the month it includes the following: the history of the month's name, historical things that happened for the month on select dates, and what the month is know for. (It's pretty cool as I am a huge history buff so I love these sheets we created!) Each month is know for a lot of things so we just picked a few things that we thought would be fun to learn about. April is National Poetry Month, Lawn & Garden Month, and Read a Road Map.

What we did:

National Poetry: We found a cute rhyming poem for the kids to learn so we printed that off.
Read a Road Map: So this was our funny we literally couldn't find road maps in our town, seriously not kidding. We both were floored over this. I suppose with Iphones who needs a road map (roll my eyes). Ironically I live in a rural area and iphones don't always work. So off to google I went and after hours of searching I found a cute learning map to print off.
Lawn & Garden Month: Kit's were different for everyone. Each kit contained seeds to plant and foam sticker flowers.

IMG_0347

One kit had cute little garden pouch that was pink with tools perfect for our niece. For the little guy we did a little people tractor toy. I personally am a big fan of the little people toys they are so cute and perfect for the small ones.

Lawn and Garden Kit

The older kids got these cute grow capsules that were bugs. Remember the grow capsules you put in a glass a water? These are one of my favorite childhood memories with my one great aunt.

IMG_0355

Lastly each kit had a fun tag I created. I printed Lawn & Garden Kit off onto Whisper White card stock and cut them into strips. Then took the stamp from Crazy About You Stamp Set (available in wood, clear or photopolymer) (W) item #138856 (C) item #138859 (P) item #137137. I inked the flower in Flirty Flamingo and stamped onto the Whisper White card stock. To finish I add a Metallic Enamel Shape to the center of the flower. I had a lot of fun putting this month box together.

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Crazy About You
Ink: Flirty Flamingo
Paper: Whisper White
Acc.: Metallic Enamel Shapes

Scrapbook Saddle Up Friday; Project Life 2017 Plan

Life's a Party

Happy Friday Peeps!

Lot's to share today with ya! Did you see the title and think hmmm Holly it's April already. I know I usually share what I am doing in January but it's never to late to talk Project Life Plan's! For me it's an evolving system with change ;) It's been hard to find time for just me this year, thus why this post is so late in the year. I came up with a really fun idea that I am having a blast with!! I will be sharing that idea very soon.

Let's discuss plans:

We definitely are continuing the daily journal style. This is where we are documenting each day. It's been fun to look back on the past years just to see what our day to day life is like, the weather, and etc. At the beginning of the year dh and I sat down and kicked around idea's for a theme this year. We had so much fun with last year's theme we wanted to do that again and see how it went. Last year's theme was New you can view that blog post HERE. January we knew lots of big things were happening this year, lots of things that we would be celebrating.....little did we know how many things we would be celebrating and how crazy it would really be. lol So we decided the theme this year would be............

IMG_0978

AWESOME SAUCE! This truly is fitting our life this year! This year I decided to go with the Black Faux Leather 12 x 12 Album item #135292. I used the Silhouette to decorate the cover with our phrase for this year! How cool is that and so easy to do!!

SAB Card Tin

Some of you have already seen this fun tin. I shared this in the Stamp Review Crew Hop HERE, today I am sharing the details. This is the Card Tin from Sale-A-Bration. I decorated it to fit our theme "Life's A Party". This tin will hold the completed cards for this year's project life at the end of the year I will slide them into the album. Why don't I put them in the album right away? So many of you have emailed me telling me you want to see what I come up with to hold my cards for the year and how fun it is. So I plan on keep doing this till I run out of ideas. lol I used the Balloon Adventures Photopolymer Bundle item #144708 to decorate my tin.

Balloon Adventures

This is one of my favorite bundles and I am so sad to see this retire! You'll want to get it before it's gone!

IMG_0732

Close up of the front of the tin. Looks like a party is going on!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:
Front

  • I wrapped some Emerald Envy 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon around the tin. I love this stuff!
  • Cut pieces of Pacific Point and Whisper White card stock.
  • I inked the stamp from Balloon Adventures in Emerald Envy Ink and stamped towards the top of the Whisper White card stock. I inked the confetti image from the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set in Crushed Curry and stamped across the bottom of the Whisper White card stock.
  • On the bottom of the Whisper White card stock I added a piece of Party Animal Designer Washi Tape, a piece of Party Animal Designer Series Paper and some Gold Sequin Trim.
  • Using the Big Shot and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits I die cut out a piece of Tangerine Tango and Gold Glimmer Paper to create my balloon.
  • I added some Metallic Enamel Shapes to the Whisper White card stock and some Brights Enamel Shapes to the Whisper White card stock and tin.
  • Once done decorating the layer of card stock I attached it to the tin with Stampin' Dimensionals.

IMG_0722

These are the dividers. They are labeled Jan. -Dec.

  • Create more dividers out of the white chipboard that comes in the 12 x 12 Designer Paper Packs. I just traced each card that I needed onto the chipboard and cut them out.
  • Each card then was decorated with the Party Animal Designer Series Paper and Party Animal Designer Washi Tape. I altered the patterns and layouts for each card.
  • I used the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and  Project Life Date It Photopolymer Stamp Set to label the month's. First I took the stamp from Thoughtful Banner Stamp Set; inked in Pacific Point and stamped 12 hex banners onto Whisper White card stock. Next I inked each month in Emerald Envy and stamped inside each hex banner. I then used the Classic Label Punch to punch out each image. I attached them to the divider card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • To finish the card I added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the months.

IMG_0739

I wanted the top to be pretty too!

  • Cut a piece of Tangerine Tango card stock and stamp the confetti image onto it in Tangerine Tango.
  • Add different patterns of the Party Animal Designer Series Paper in the center.
  • Zip a piece of Emerald Envy card stock through the Big Shot with the Stitched Shape Framelits to die cut it out. Place some Gold Metallic Thread onto the back of the die cut.
  • Ink the banner from Balloon Adventures in Pacific Point and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White card stock. Ink the Party on in Emerald Envy and stamp inside the banner. Cut out the banner and attach to the die cut. Finish by adding some Metallic Enamel Shapes.

IMG_0741

I am so excited to use this tin this year!! It just screams party time! So that's the plan this year for our project life daily journal. If you made it to the end and read it all good job! lol

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Balloon Adventures, Project Life Date It, Thoughtful Banners
Ink: Emerald Envy, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry
Paper: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Emerald Envy, Tangerine Tango, Party Animal Designer Series Paper, Gold Glitter Paper

Family Gifts; Rainbow to Go + Promotion

Rainbowtogo

This is another gift we created for our family members and is part of the "Year Gift" we made! If you would like to see more info about this awesome project we created and what I've shared so far click on the little tag on the left side of my blog labeled Year of Gifts or visit HERE. This was the Rainbow To Go Kit which was a random day for them to open in March. I love rainbows they are beautiful and I've always wanted to make one of these kits up! I used the Over the Rainbow Photopolymer Stamp Set item #138770 to create this fun kit!

Over the Rainbow

IMG_0219

First up is the card and rainbow seeds I created ;) Love this card and hope everyone liked it too! Here is the breakdown of it.

IMG_0223

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Cut Whisper White Thick card stock for the base. Then cut Basic Black and Whisper card stock for the layers.
  • Create a rainbow using the Over the Rainbow Photopolymer Stamp Set using the following ink colors; Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Elegant Eggplant. Be sure to clean your stamp when using each color. Let it dry good before doing the next step.
  • Take the stamp from Over the Rainbow Stamp Set; ink it in VersaMark Ink Pad then in the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. Stamp onto the rainbow and pour Clear Embossing Powder over the image. Tap off the excess and heat set with the Heat Tool. Glue the Whisper White card stock to the Basic Black card stock.
  • Wrap some Old Olive Baker's Twine around the layers then attach the layers to the card base.
  • Finish with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

IMG_0217

How about those Rainbow Seeds ;) Supper inexpensive idea to do too!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Create a belly band out of Old Olive card stock. I just wrapped the Old Olive card stock around the box and pinched around the edges as I went.
  • Zip a piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits die cutting it out.
  • Ink the stamp from Over the Rainbow Stamp Set in Elegant Eggplant and Melon Mambo. Stamp onto the Whisper White tag.
  • Using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set spell out Seeds and ink it in Pumpkin Pie and stamp onto the Whisper White tag.
  • To finish add a Brights Enamel Shape.

Again everyone's kits were different to suit each family.

IMG_0225

Some got the rainbow seeds, instant tea, and rub-ix cubes. I got the rub-ix cubes at the party store.

IMG_0227

Some got fruit snacks, and jello in their rainbow to go kits. You'll notice in the picture I also stamped a rainbow on the envelope but forgot to take the picture of it. lol

IMG_0233

Some got apple sauce instead of jello. Those with kids also got coloring kits that included crayons, paints and etc. The rainbow plastic bags I happen to come across them at the Party Store.

IMG_0238

Then they were all packaged up into fun bags with tags I created and present ribbon. It's so easy to create a rainbow to go and as you can see you can easily create healthy rainbow kits to go too. Just be sure to check the expiration dates on the food. A lot of the food was purchased towards the middle of December to be safe.

My fun limited time promotion! How you can get your own Rainbow to Go Card!

Quick Family Update; My Dad

Happy Friday! April has arrived! Wow when did that happen?

Thank you all for the emails, texts and prayers the last few weeks it truly means a lot to me and I am so grateful for the wonderful friendships I have made over the years.

Life continues to be WILD here nothing new; this seems to be the new norm for us. lol What the heck we been up to? I can't even tell ya that's how busy we've been. ROFL So much going on around here it's literally insane. Lot's of running, client work, prepping and creating for the next wave of parties and events, (wait till you see all the AWESOME stuff I've been making too), bachelor and bachelorette party, annual Memorial Basketball Tournament in my cousin's honor, 1st Birthday Party, 40th Birthday Party, working on parents house, and a sudden death in the family. If this wasn't enough to have going on; my Dad had to go in for surgery on March 28. He was supposed to go in this week but it got pushed up to last week. So lots of last min scrambling to get some stuff done.... I am sure my blood pressure is sky high. lol

IMG_3406

We spent 9 hours at the hospital; it was a pretty long day and at one point I felt I should clock in and work. lol Dad's surgery took about 3 hours and it went great! They operated on the rota-tor cuff and tied off the bicep tendon that was not healing. He has a 12 weeks recovery so it's official now; calving season is all mine. (Oh joy) lol The cocktail they gave him messed him up pretty good so it was highly entertaining. 

Hubby and I have been taken turns being sick, I also had another batch of tests to go through and this week we ended back in the ER with Dad as he got a post op infection. This week REALLY hasn't gone as planned. lol Like I said CRA-CRA-CRAZY. This weekend we head off to the cities for ONSTAGE!! So excited about that and I will have things to share! I also get to see the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am going to TRY my best to start blogging again here we'll see how it goes. lol There is just a LOT on our plate right now and really not enough time in the day to get it all done.

Thank you again for your continued support and prayers for us.

Jamie and Holly

Weather Together

This set is so fun but I really love those framelits to help make the umbrella pop more. My card is a simple and fast one today for you!

Rubber Redneck Quick Shots:

  • Ink the stamp from Weathered Together Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay and stamp part of it in Bermuda Bay ink.
  • I wanted to use some of the retired Carried Away Designer Series Paper.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and stamp rain drops on the top half in Smoky Slate. Across the bottom I stamped the greeting in Crushed Curry.
  • Next I stamped the handle in Bermuda Bay onto Bermuda Bay card stock. The top part of the umberlla I stamped in Calypso Coral on Calypso Coral card stock. I zipped both pieces through the Big Shot with the Umbrella Weather Framelits. I popped the pieces up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Add some Rhinestone and a master piece has been created ;)
