I Like Your Face Card

The Cheerful Critters stamp is so stinkin' cute.  Perfect for any whimsical need you might have!  I'm notorious for blurting out things like "I like your face", so this set just called to me!  
I saw a fellow demonstrator, Katina Martinez, use the Adventure Bound Paper Stack in the coolest way, I just had to try it out!  So now it looks like our little peep is popping up from behind a brick wall with his cute little sign.  Thanks Katina for a great idea!

Here's the video with all the instructions:

Painted Petals Lotion Bag

Did you see that the Painted Blooms DSP is on the Weekly Deals this week?!  Great time to stock up and make some of these cute little bags yourself!

So let's get started with the directions for these beautiful bags!  They perfectly hold a Scentsy Hand Lotion, but I'm sure they would accommodate lots of things!

Painted Blooms DSP: 8" X 10 1/2"
Score in Portrait orientation at: 2"
Score in Landscape orientation at: 3", 4" (to the score line), 5", 8", 9" (to the score line) and 10"

Burnish your score lines EXCEPT THE 4" AND 9" marks, those will be your gussets!
Trim off smallest rectangle and trim up the remaining score lines.  Give your larger rectangles at the bottom a hair cut.  It will help your box go together better.
Place a strip of Fast Fuse along the skinny strip and fold over your bag to adhere it.
Fold in your tabs on the bottom to create the bottom of your bag. 
Now gently squeeze at the top of the bag pushing in on your gussets to create the top of your bag.

Taking a scrap of Whisper White, use Rose Red ink and your Thank You sentiment from the Painted Petals Stamp Set and stamp your image.  Using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, punch it out with the sentiment towards the right side.  Now punch out a piece of Soft Sky card stock with your 2" Circle Punch.  Use SNAIL to adhere the circles together and to 1/2 of a doily.  Put 3 Rhinestones across the top.  Now trim off the extra along the side.  Use Dimensionals to attach it to your bag.
With your Mini Clothes Pin, take a 2 Way Glue Pen and run it over one side of the clothes pin.  Now attach a 1/4" strip of coordinating DSP and trim off the extra.  Repeat on the other side.
Use your flower image punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and punch out a piece of Rose Red Card Stock.  Use a Glue Dot to attach it to your Clothes Pin and place a Rhinestone in the center.  Use it to keep your bag closed.  That's it!!!  

Cute overload!!  Watch the video below for more instruction!

Annual Catalog CASE

One of the best things about the annual catalog is it's worth it's weight in gold when it comes to ideas!
Whenever you need inspiration, the catalog is there!
Check out page 240 in the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog.  This card is a direct CASE from the sample posted at the top of the page.  Of course I changed a few things, but the idea for this beautiful project came right from the catty!

May Paper Pumpkin Projects

I love Paper Pumpkin.  I love the simplicity of having everything at your finger tips to create cute projects.  Obviously, I spend a lot of my 'crafty' time creating things from scratch, so a kit that gives me the supplies and creative license to try something different with it...I'm in!
This May kit is easily my top 5 favorite of all time!  It came with the supplies to create 4 gift bags and 6 cards.  Obviously I altered the projects below, so I did cut up two of the cards for other projects.

Check out these cuties.  The bag on the left is created around the design that Stampin' Up! shows you, the one on the right is my own.

2 more bags, both my own ideas.  The one on the left I removed the flap and created more of an open style traditional gift bag with handles.  The one on the right is 'tricked out' with all kinds of snazzy stuff!

Here are the 4 cards I came up with.

Now normally all of these alternate projects are kept TOP SECRET and are only seen by my personal Paper Pumpkin Subscribers.  Once a month I send out an email with photos and directions on creating alternate projects with the current month's kit.  It's a perk of choosing me, Brianna Thompson, as your demonstrator!  I appreciate each and every customer I have and want to spoil you!  So if you aren't already one of my Paper Pumpkin Peeps, now is a great time to join!  Don't miss out on next month's awesome creations!  Click HERE for more information on signing up!
