Hi Everyone! It’s a butterfly spinner card! This is the last week to get Sale-A-Bration’s Botanical Butterflies Designer Paper. It’s FREE with a $50 purchase.
What’s great about this paper is some of sheets line up with the Butterfly Duet Punch perfectly. Or you could fuzzy cut the butterflies and still make this card!
You could replicate this project after Sale-a-Bration ends with the Butterfly Gala Bundle (stamp set and punch) and other Designer Paper of your choice 🙂
What makes it a spinner card is layering mirror images in-between thread or in this case, fishing line! And then prior to closing the card you twist and twist and twist the image and close. When opened, the butterfly spins and twirls!

Hi Everyone! Let’s think Spring!!!! With a winter full of ice, blizzards, grey skies and polar vortexes, I need some fun and spring-like projects, don’t you? And that’s theme of this month’s hop!
My project was inspired by my new spring décor. I’ve been itching to use Best Bunny Bundle and now that Easter in in my cross”hares”, let’s create a little punch art! The product list looks long. But really it’s a lot of things most stampers have on hand and you could sub out the colors for any scrap cardstock you have on hand.

Hi Everyone! OMGoodness These Sock Gnomes are so fun to make. I discovered them when a friend posted on Facebook one she made at a class. I went YouTube searching and found they were a thing but decorated for winter. So I changed up to make for spring.
White rice (grocery store – get 10 lb bag if you plan to make several!)
Cheap Dollar Tree white sock
Sock for outside (Walmart)
Clear hair rubber bands (Walmart)
White embroidery thread (Walmart)
Paper cone for hat
Felt for hat 8×12 is what I found
Spring sprigs and such for hat decorations
You can find them at most major craft stores. The cones can be hard to find so below are Amazon links to some of the items above.
Hi Everyone! I am soooo about these Sweet Cups. They are a really good size treat holder and FUN FUN FUN to decorate. I recently did a Facebook Live for my VIP Group ( It’s free to join and no obligation – click here to join!) where this was the main project. I did some other tips and ideas there too. I’m sure you will see more creations using the Sweet Cups from me in the upcoming weeks!
Special thanks to Susan Campfield for sharing her adorable Panda Sweet Treat! Her creation got my wheels a turnin’!
I love punch art! This merges punch art and dies art to make the images. Below is a picture at a glance of what you will need. From the Layering Ovals Framelits – the die cut sizes are the 2-3/4″, 2-1/2″ & 2-1/4″.
You can choose to spritz the container or not. The video tutorial show spritzing but you can skip it for the white bunnies shown above. The video is a start to finish video. Once you get the first one under your belt, you can really quickly mass produce.
TIP! If mass producing die cut 2 at a time! Use 2 layers of cardstock or designer paper when die cutting.
General Instructions: Option to spritz the container and lid using a Stampin’ Spritzer with rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink Refills. Set aside to dry. Punch out and die cut images below. Use 1/2″ Circle Punch, 3/4″ Circle Punch, 1″ Circle Punch and the Dog Builder Punch along with the Layering Oval Framelits. Add bakers twine to the back of the heart and assemble bunny as shown.
The list of products might seem long – but items stampers have in their stash for the most part. If you don’t, and need something, these are basic tools and items you will use time and time again!
