Cake Soiree Favorite Designer Series Paper for SSINK

I want to show you a card I made that really shows off my favorite Designer Series Paper, Sweet Soiree.  Just in time for the wedding of one of my former Girl Scouts!  You might see some evidence of a tea party we just had for her in the background.

That paper is so gorgeous, it doesn’t need much else!  This card is called a Double Gate Fold Card- a great way to show off DSP!

Here’s how it looks when you open it:

One thing I love is a good sentiment stamp.  This sweet saying is from Special Celebrations.  You can find all supplies with a link to my store at the bottom of my post.

The cake on the front is from Cake Soiree Bundle.  I embossed it in silver to go with this elegant card.

RemARKable Ink Big Blog Hop Bloomin’ Love

Welcome to the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop for January 2018. This month our theme is Valentines!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Cheryl Hamilton- Create With Cheryl or may have come from the person previous to me on the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Valentine`s Day is the second most popular day of the year for sending cards, second only to Christmas. There are approximately 1 billion Valentine`s Day cards exchanged every year in the U.S. alone.  I prefer handmade cards where you can see all the love that’s put into making them.

For my valentines, I’ve made a little bag.  Fill it with candy or make a little pull-out note like shown above.

Love this bright, fun paper that’s a FREE SALE-A-BRATON ITEM.  For every $50 you spend choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!  CLICK HERE to browse the catalog.

Decided to give candy to my team at our meeting yesterday instead of a note.  They already know I love them!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss. Remember that currently, you are on my blog – Cheryl Hamilton @ Create With Cheryl, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next on the list.

SSINK 3 X 3 Cards in a Quilted Christmas Pizza Box

Aloha and welcome to another Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration post!  Today we’ll be showing you our ideas for 3 X 3 gift cards.  3 X 3 cards are simple and very useful.  I participated in a 3 X 3 swap at On Stage in November and got tons of great ideas!!  Here’s what I came up with using the Quilted Christmas Suite:

I started with the Pizza Box!  No surprise there!!  Perfect size for the 3 X 3 cards.

Open it up…

Isn’t that fun & inviting?!  It’s filled with 3 X 3 cards with matching envelopes.

I’ve had so much fun with this Suite!  There’s so much you can do with it.

You might be searching around for that star in the middle.  That’s from Trim Your Stocking Thinlits.  All ingredients listed below.

Time to head over to the SSINK PAGE for more 3 X 3 ideas!

Fleece Navidad

Did you notice this cute saying in Barnyard Babies?!!  This is perfect for where I live in Upcountry Maui!  I’m surrounded by cows, goats, pigs, horses, & sheep that I say “Hi” to when I go on my morning walks.  

I made a Charlie Brown Tree using Totally Trees and found the ornaments & star in the Tin of Tags set.

So, Happy Christmas to everyone!!  It’s coming soon.  I’m trying to enjoy each moment & not stress!

Be sure & check out Crystal & Anne’s December calendar pages!

 

 

Totally Trees for November

I think this month’s page is my favorite!  I love the way these watercolors made the pretty background- just a stamp on top…& done!  I found the idea for this from Michelle Quinno at shellsq.blogspot.com.  Thanks, Michelle!

Watercolored using Aquapainter:  Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, & Tip Top Taupe

Stamped on top using Early Espresso.  Stamp sets are Totally Trees & Endless Thanks.

I have so much to be thankful for!  The first thing that comes to mind is how thankful I am for the many dear friends I’ve made through stampin’!

Now head over to see what Crystal & Anne have done for November!

SSINK Halloween Fun Tags & Trimmings

Happy Halloween!!  Have you ever purchased a whole bundle ($53) just to get one stamp?!!  I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who’s done this…

That’s what happened when I saw this sentiment:  “It’s what’s INSIDE that counts”!  Had to have it!  Here’s the bundle called Tags & Trimmings:

I’m sure you’ll see more projects on my blog in the next couple of months where I use this bundle!

These little bags (Mini Treat Bag Thinlits) are one of my favorite things and they’re so cute & simple to make!!

Here’s a picture of a class I had recently!  The items for the pencil holders are retired, but the rest are current Stampin’ Up! products.  You can find all supplies at the bottom of the post.

Hope you had a fun time making a few things for Halloween!!  I sure did!  Head over to the SSINK Blog Page to see more Halloween Fun Ideas!

SSINKspiration Welcome Baby!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration day when we’ll be welcoming baby Hunter!!  Our teammate, Pamela Wu, just had a baby 1 week ago!

Image may contain: one or more people, people sleeping and baby

Isn’t he just perfect?!!

I made him this Sampler for his room!

It’s mainly an ocean theme with a taste of Hawaii (shave ice & pineapple).  I chose these colors (Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Flirty Flamingo, Sahara Sand) to go with the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper.

A few of these images are from Message in a Bottle Stamp Set.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave me a note below!  I’d love to hear from you!
