Magnolia Lane Framed Art using the Magnolia Lane product suite!  New from Stampin' Up!


Woohoo!!  It's here - the new 2019-2020 Annual catalog!

It's packed full of amazing new products and projects!


For today's project, I CASEd this magnificent framed art piece straight from the catalog.  Using the new Magnolia Lane suite, making this was a snap!  Do you know the catalog is chalk full of projects and creative solutions?  It is a great resource to have in your hands.


The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coordinating Magnolia Memory dies are so beautiful!



To create the flowers, I followed the instructions from the video below which Stampin' Up! created, to show how you can use the Magnolia Memory dies.  They take just a little time, but are quite easy to make. 


And so worth it!  They are amazing in person!


Making flowers was never easier than when using he Magnolia Memory dies

There is so much dimension to this project!  It makes a lovely gift or art piece for your home or office.


So much dimension with the Magnolia Memory die flowers


To create this project:

  • place a piece of Magnolia Lane designer paper of your choice in a frame
  • create multiple flowers following the instructions in the Stampin' Up! video
  • use a hot glue gun to adhere the flowers and leaves to wooden twigs, than glue the twigs to the frame
  • if desired, add a stamped sentiment

Sealed with Love Sampler

Hello!  I am back today with a project we did at a recent class.  We used the Sending Love Suite on pages 14-15 in the Occasions catalog to make this seasonal home décor art piece.  It came together so nicely, and each person's project looked a bit different, which is always fun to see.

Sending Love Suite: Sealed with Love bundle, Sending Love designer series paper


The Sending Love Suite includes a very cute stamp set called Sealed with Love, the Love Notes coordinating die set, a pretty collection of designer series papers done in Real Red and Whisper White prints, 1/8" ribbon in both Real Red and Whisper White, wood veneer embellishments, glassine paper, and adorable mini paperclips, which I want a bucketful of!

The design is simply eight separate squares, and for the center, I chose to cut a red glimmer paper heart using the Bloomin' Heart thinlet, which is on page 194 of the annual catalog.  In person, that heart is gorgeous!  Each square is created on a 3" x 3" piece of Real Red cardstock as the base, then mounted on a piece of Silver Shimmer designer series paper from the Neutrals Collection DSP stack on page 170 of the annual catalog.  Did you know there were silver and gold papers in that dsp collection?  They are beautiful!  You want need  them in your life!


For the Sending Love veneer embellishments, I put them directly onto my ink pad to color them.  I also stamped on some of them, to add a fun pattern before adhering to my project.  You can see this on the 'Hello Love' square.


This piece is framed in a 10" x 10" square frame.  I plan to swap out the artwork seasonally, so I have something fresh and fun to decorate with throughout the year.  This is the first class in a 4 part series which I am offering this year.  I will look forward to creating Spring artwork for my next class.


I kept the colors for this project simple:


Head on over to my store and grab your supplies to make a Sending Love sampler, than share it with me.  I would love to see it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Sparkly Halloween Wreath

Decorating for the season is always fun, but I find I don't usually decorate much for Halloween.  I am not sure why, as it makes things much more festive.  Plus, the products Stampin' Up! offers makes it easier than ever to create some great décor pieces, and making home décor is always something I enjoy. This wreath was no exception.  And the shimmer to it is simply gorgeous!


Sparkly Halloween Wreath made with Halloween Night Washi Tape, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, Burlap Ribbon and Silver Glitter Ribbon
Halloween Night Washi Tape, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, Burlap Ribbon, and Silver Glitter Ribbon



Using Halloween Night washi tape, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, and some ribbon, this came together in a little over an hour.  It is simple enough to do with kids, and makes a great gift, as it is affordable to make.  You could actually make several wreaths from one set of supplies, making it ideal for gifting!  Christmas wreaths for teachers and neighbors would make fulfilling your gift list a snap.


Speaking of washi tape, have you tried Stampin' Up! washi tape?  It is an incredible value.  Packaged 5 rolls to a set for most collections, they are about $1.50 a roll.  And they adhere really well, making them ideal for multiple uses, not just paper crafting.


Now, back to the wreath.  To make your wreath, choose your favorite 4 washi tapes from the Halloween Night washi tape collection featured in the Holiday Catalog (page 51).  Some may require a little trimming, but most of our washi is the perfect width--bonus!  Using standard clip clothespins (60 total), I covered 10 each in the 4 washi tapes, 10 with Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper, and the last 10 in the fabulous Silver Glitter Ribbon from the Holiday Catalog (page 37).  This ribbon is beyond gorgeous, and actually comes as a combo pack, paired with a roll of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon (ready for Valentine's Day?).  What I love about this ribbon, is it is not actually glitter, so it is clean and smooth....no sparkly mess!  I adhered it to the clothespins using Tear & Tape adhesive, which worked perfectly.  Clip the clothespins to a 12" metal wreath form, than hot glue them into place.  Make a gift-style bow using 5/8" Burlap ribbon.  This burlap ribbon was so easy to work with, and has just the right amount of body to make the perfect bow!  I used 3 yards for my bow, and I think it had the exact amount of fullness I was looking for.  Tie it to the wreath form.  Add a piece of ribbon for a hanger, and enjoy!  Since almost all of our washi tape collections contain 5 rolls, any of them would make a great choice for your wreath.


Here are the colors I worked with, and added some silver shimmer for good measure.

Now, head on over to my store, and grab your wreath supplies.  There is still time! And while you're there, grab some Christmas washi tape as well, and pair it with Red Glimmer Paper for a beautifully festive look!
