SSINK Anything But a Card!

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Team won’t be making cards.  In fact, we’ll be focusing on ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

I’m excited to show you a project that will help you organize your life!  My birthdays are all over the place… my computer, calendar, on scraps of paper.  Now I have a system to remember birthdays as well as a place to tuck the cards away that are perfect for a special person!

This project was CASED from 2 people:  Vicki Wizniuk, who has the calendar inserts on her blog, and Erika Cerwin who came up with this great idea!!  They each have tons of great ideas!!

So each month has a pocket for the calendar inserts.  Turn the group over & you have the last 6 months of the year!

I’m offering 2 classes next month so that you can make your own Birthday Boxes!

  • Sunday, August 20 at 3 pm or
  • Monday, August 21 at 10 am
  • Cost is $20 or FREE with your $40 order placed that day
  • Different colors will be offered for your project
  • Class size will be limited, so RSVP ASAP!

Can’t wait to see the other Non-Card Ideas from the SSINK Team!!

Floral Boutique Wishes for SSINKCS#44 April Sketch Challenge

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation Design Team has a new Card Sketch Challenge SSINKCS#44 and we hope you’ll play along!

I pulled out the gorgeous Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper to come up with this card:

When I first saw this paper, I felt lukewarm towards it, probably because it only has Night of Navy & Whisper White.  I’m drawn to the colorful, mostly pastel Designer Series Papers.  But I finally bought a pack of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper with the corresponding stamp set, Floral Phrases, and now it’s probably my favorite!  It’s so beautiful & elegant!

Here’s a close up look at that flower.  Notice the light & dark in that stamp.

Have I sold you on it?  🙂 What’s your favorite Designer Series Paper?

Be sure and see what the other SSINK Design Team Members have made for this sketch.
