From Garden Flowers to Pressed Petals

Remember the craft of drying flowers or pressing them in between the pages of a book? It's been a long time since I tried doing either of these, but I can certainly enjoy the look of pretty pressed flowers using the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up! The Pressed Petals Suite is filled with loads of pretty products to coordinate with this beautiful paper. Gratitude, support, and love are themes used to describe this gorgeous product suite.

My blog post today contains 2 videos, one an introduction to the Pressed Petals Products Suite, the second from today's Stampin' Peace VIP Group Facebook Live filled with cards and creative ideas. I hope you'll watch and enjoy both! In addition, I've posted pictures of 3 cards using the Pressed Petals Washi Tape that I'll be mailing to 3 lucky viewers of today's Facebook Live.

Sentimental Rose Collage

I decided after running my first ever Quarter Marathon at age 54 that I would make a little something for myself as a reward and a reminder that I am Strong & Beautiful & Resilient. I used the Sentimental Rose stamp set and supplies from my April Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love this little gift to myself and hope you like it too! The Strong & Beautiful stamp set has been one of my favorites from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. So many great sentiments for strong women and girls!

What a wonderful feeling it is to know that I have inspired others with my creativity. Today, I'm showing off the work of two stampin' friends!

Anne Rolfes was inspired to create this Spring Collage for her home after completing a Valentine's Day collage make-n-take at my January Creative Escape Weekend. For some helpful collage making tips, see my February 1st, 2019 blog post: https://stampinpeace.typepad.com/stampin_peace/2019/02/collage-making-made-simple.html IMG_0722 (1)

Below is a card made by Joyce Batta for her granddaughter's birthday. Joyce got her inspiration from my March Facebook Live where I demonstrated how to make an Accordion Fold Pop Up Card featuring Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper. While Joyce did not use Stampin' Up! paper, she sure made a cute card. I have no doubt that her little granddaughter was thrilled with it. Learn how to make an Accordion Fold Pop Up Card by watching a demonstration from my April 10th, 2019 blog post: https://stampinpeace.typepad.com/stampin_peace/2019/04/join-me-on-an-animal-expedition.html

Collage Making Made Simple

I enjoy seeing so many handmade collages on social media. They're beautiful and often inspire us to want to create our own, but it also may be intimidating with concerns such as "What are the measurements?" and "How do I get even spacing between squares and around the outside of the collage?". January 29th, I did a Facebook Live with measurements and tips for collage making with ease and no stress. See the edited video of that FB Live below.
