So WHO jumped on the Cigar Box wagon with me? Or the Spiral Bouquet Wagon? Or the stationery kits, and monograms?

Then you don’t need ME to tell you they are AWESOME!!!

I haven’t made my won patterned paper in EON’s (a word my mom uses frequently, and now that I’m getting old I find myself turning into her)! It means a LONG time. It was fun to do that again.

I found it really easy to do using the new PTI set. The possibilities are just endless. Do I sound like an info-mercial? I’m not trying too, seriously!

So I am going to share a few samples with you doing just that-making my own patterned paper with Spiral Bouquet!

I also have another gift idea/template! YEAH!!!

All the items/stamps used are already linked in the above paragraph 😀 Unless noted.


The Cigar Box

I think this is very fall. I have to try to remember that SOME women just don’t do pinks, and purples-SHOCK!!! LOL! I will say I am in LOVE with these colors! It’s good to step outside my normal range one in a while eh?

They are- celery, olive, banana, saffron, coral, and guava-with a splash of balck that really makes this POP!!!

The ink was all versamagic ink-but I listed the compared SU colors for you to understand 😀

The sides of the box are in black cardstock, and were run through my Cuttlebug with the Stylized Flowers embossing folder. I tied around a large Olive Satin ribbon from May Arts. The flower’s are by Making Memories, and Bazzil as are the black brads.

I sponged all the edges in black, and then spritzed with my color spritzer. This is the box to house a yet to be created Monogram note-card set. I’ve been out of commission-so thats is my excuse for not having a view a of it first. But I didn’t think you wanted to wait to see it!

I adhered this stuff using myATG Gun.

Next up-G is for Grateful.


You don’t have to use the monogram’s sets, JUST for monogram’s ya know 😀

I love making sets like this. If the person’s first/last initial happens to match then that is pure GENIUS!!! Unfortunately for me-this is not the case. But I think 6 of these as a set is a great gift for those Yankee swaps and whatnot. Especially when they have a $5 value. If its more then I do more. People usually fight over my sets when Jason brings them in 😀 That makes me all warm and fuzzy. I am always told they re-gift it, but I am taking that as a compliment! Try to keep it SIMPLE.

So this set, is another with earthy colors. I so LOVE the color River Rock. Its really beautiful. Funny because I thought it was HIDEOUS when I saw it in the catalog! LOL! Now lookie who loves it!

These colors are river rock, wasabi, guava, and ruby red. SURPRISINGLY Pretty aren’t they?

What I love is the fact that the circle cut out reveals the under layer, and the inner circle is on dimensionals. A new thing I have been doing, and I just love the look. In person its very striking.

Now what you may have been waiting for!

mytime-pt-vellum-card-holder.jpg Notes- For you.

Quick and simple note card set! The “For you” is PTI-Paper Tray set.

I bought these little notecards/envelopes at Walmart- $1.89 for a set of 8.

I decided to make a quick set of these, with a vellum cardstock holder. Vellum gives it an elegant touch I think. I certainly could GLAM it up, but chose SIMPLE. I asked Amber’s teacher what her favorite color was. She said pink and purple!

YEAH!!! So this is Lilac, Peony, and Merlot ink. Its all colorbox chalkink for this one. GORGEOUS colors in person-I swear.

I just took mylarge scallop nestabilitiy, and made my scallop frame. It steps this simple card up form plain Jane, to a WOW I think! Again for a splash of color I spritzed it with my color spritzer. I did 8 of these in a 1/2 hour. Due to the framing, and 3 step stamping.

I then decided to create a holder.

Now you need to note my holder is for cards that are sized 4 3/4 X 3 3/4.
