OSAT Blog Hop Bring on the Birthdays

Welcome to the March 2019 OSAT Blog Hop Bring on the Birthdays!  I'm sure this hop is going to give you many ideas for celebrating birthdays.  This month so happens to be my birthday month as well as several other blog hoppers.  March has always been a fun month to me thanks to a very special lady in my life.  Yes, you guessed it!  My mommy!!!  My mom always made a big deal about my birthday.  It included all the girls from my class coming home with me after school on the bus, and also sloppy joes for supper, games, prizes, presents and of course my birthday cake.  My birthday being in March, was always centered around a chocolate Easter bunny and a nest of green colored coconut with jelly beans.  Many years that was my cake.  I'm thankful to my mommy for all her love and sacrifices she made for us girls; there's three of us.  So if I'm a little spoiled during the month of March it's because of my mom.  So this leads into my projects for this month.  I think you'll find the correlation to what I just explained and our theme and my projects.

I had just purchased the cute set Fable Friends after seeing so many adorable projects made with it.  This set is good for Spring, Easter and baby projects and as you can see I turned it into birthday projects as well

I used a little journal book from my stash to make this adorable little notebook as my 3D item and it will be a birthday gift for...............well me of course!!!  It is my month!  LOL!  I really need something pretty to look at during this awful time of year.  Here in Michigan it can't decide if it wants to be winter or spring.  I used scraps of the Gingham DSP and Gorgeous Grape to cover this notebook.  Those 1"-2" scraps come in handy in a project like this.  


I did cheat a little and used some of the now retired SAB ribbon.  I got the ribbon and it sold out so quick that I wasn't able to demonstrate with it, but I did use a little on this notebook because I knew would look so cute with this. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and please continue onto the next blog by clicking the name blow mine in the list below.
Blessings,

OSAT Blog Hop #simplestamping

Welcome to the monthly blog hop of OSAT!!!  I'm so glad you stopped by to visit today.  Our theme this month is Simple Stamping.  I think this is really up for interpretation so I'm giving you my idea and I'm  sure you will find that it varies from each blogger, which I think is great!  I think it would be boring if we were all the same.

Since I just received the Painted Seasons set that will be available tomorrow for a $100 order during SAB, I decided I had to use it.  I love the new DistINKtive stamps in this years line of stamps.  I will admit that the flowers were cut out using some great new framelits that will be available for purchase in March.  The stamp set has to be earned with SAB, but the framelits will be for purchase in March.  Just wanted to make that clear, so there is no confusion. 


This card was super simple.  I stamped and cut and adhered.  The words on these projects come from the set  Beautiful Day.  I wish the brightness of this card showed better, but in Michigan right now it is gloomy, snowy, yucky, you name it.  No real good lighting.  Listed below are all the products that I used.


I made this quick and sweet little bag using the Bag Punch Board.  I hadn't used it in awhile and I forgot how easy bags are to make.  It was fun especially using the New Painted Seasons DSP that comes with the stamp set as a bundle.  Woo Hoo!  Isn't that cool?  A free stamp set and a package of free DSP for a $100 purchase. I closed the bag with a Library Clip and I tied a bow around the top of the clip.  I apologize for using the SAB ribbon that has sold out, but you could use any ribbon to add to the clip. 


Don't you just love that paper????  It is so stinkin' pretty!!!! The other side of the bag paper is the strip that was used on the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by and please continue on the blog hop using the list below.
Blessings,
Renee

OSAT Blog Hop Sale a Brate Every Occasions

Hey there stampin' peeps!  It's been awhile since I've posted.  The fall is just so busy for me, but as they say you have to make hay while the sun shines.  I'm hopping today with the One Stamp At A Time group and trying to get back into the swing of things.  I've got a bunch of new product to play with that I know you'll just love.  I chose the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions catalog and the Tea Time Framelits from the SAB catalog.  I also added in a few pieces from the Dear Doily set because, well, what is tea without a doily?  If you've ever been to my house you've probably got that impression. *Ü*

I love everything about this card and the stamp sets and framelits I used.  If you haven't guessed it by now I'm a tea drinker and a fantasy of mine would be to have tea with "The Queen".  I know this stamp set will get a lot of use by me.


For my 3D item I chose to recreate something I made a long time ago and I've had it on my refrigerator.  This is a standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" base of Balmy Blue cardstock.  I then attached it to a piece of cardboard from a Paper Pumpkin kit with All Purpose Glue.  I rounded the corners with the corner rounder on the Envelope Punch Board.  The pocket is made from a 6" x 6" piece of Gingham Gala DSP.  I punched and scored at 3" on the Envelope Punch Board.  I only scored on three sides, but I punched on all four.  To make the pocket hold the scratch pad a little better, I then used my paper cutter and the score blade to score to the right of each score line by 1/8".  I then folded in the sides first and secured with All Purpose Glue and then the bottom part last.  I will list below all the products I used to make this.  If you have questions after that, please feel free to contact me and I can do a video.

On the back I attached magnets.  Why only three?  Well because I only had three.  LOL!  Simple enough huh?

I stamped and colored and die cut the flower out on the teapot. I also used our new Stitched rectangle dies to put my sentiment on.  I stamped and die cut that flower as well and popped up with a dimensional.  


I hope you enjoyed these projects and will continue around the hop to see some amazing Stampin'Up! projects using products from the new Occasions and SAB catalogs.
