Egg-stra Special Stmapin’ Up! Basket Bunch Easter Card

Basket Bunch 144731
Hey Guys!
I have another version of the Paper & Ink Sketches #3 card sketch in the Egg-stra Special Easter card.

I used Stampin’ Up! Basket Bunch Bundle and Tasty Treats Specialty DSP from the Stmapin’ Up! 2017 Occasions catalog and Avant Garden from the Sale-a-bration Catalog to make this punny Egg-stra special card. Isn’t Sale-a-bration the best time of the year?!

I am really enjoying all the free Stampin’ Up products I have earned. If your Stampin’ Up! wish list is long, Sale-a-bration is a wonderful time to treat yo’self.

Last Call Amuse February Collection – Mystery Hostess Opportunity

Gnome Other Mini Pillow Box
I have been under the weather and dealing with a very personal family issue. I am sorry I was gone last week. I missed you all. I am so far behind in all the things I want to share with you! Today, I am blogging against the clock. I have to pick up my oldest daughter from school in about 20 minutes! Here it is, right to the point, short and SWEET.

The A Muse Studio February Collection goes while supplies last tomorrow. I am so sad to see stamp sets like Gnome Other, Grow and Tiptoe Through the Tulips go! The stamp sets in the A Muse February Collection had such CHARACTER this time! Look that that gnome – character, right?! Don’t miss out. You never know if we will ever see these Amuse stamps again.

I have a couple of small orders here that do not total a party. Would you like a chance at the A Muse Studio hostess benefits? If there is anything A Muse Studio you have had your eye on, now is the time to order it! You could be the winner of the hostess rewards. Anyone want $25 or more in A Muse products of your choice? Email me or call me (847)922-6795 with your order today before 7pm CST. If Gideon (Desi drew this time. The hostess benefits were rewarded here.) draws your name you get the hostess rewards. That easy!

a muse studio lucky charm st. Patrick’s day friend card

Lucky Charm
It’s President’s Day and things are busy at the Alvarez house. Even though the littles are off of school today, I still have to drive mom’s taxi service. I am off again in just a minute to drop my oldest off at work. Today I thought I would share my favorite Lucky Charm card from Linda’s blog. I think this handmade card is gorgeous! The gold embossing is so elegant and the Grass Splash! Ink background is so interesting. The more I see done with A Muse Studio Lucky Charm, the more I like it! What is your favorite stamp set in the A Muse February Collection?

A Muse Studio Lucky Charm Rainbow and Mini Popcorn Box Die Treat Box

Rainbow and Mini Popcorn Box Die Treat
This is one of my most favorite projects made for the A Muse Studio February Collection release. It combines three very versatile, totally flexible A Muse Studio dies, the new Rainbow Die TAD0232, Basic Banner Die TAD0210 and the Mini Popcorn Box Die TAD0184, with the Lucky Charm SSSE034 stamp set to make one SWEET St. Patty’s Day treat. Squee!

I couldn’t wait to share this St. Paddy’s Day treat box with you. Construction is super simple. Check out the detailed supply list at the end of this post.

  • Cut and assemble two Mini Popcorn Boxes. Be sure to cut the Basic Banner from Sugar Cardstock on one of the passes through your die cut machine.
  • When you cut the Rainbow Die in six different colors, it makes six rainbows ready to go! Making multiples of this treat box is easy.
  • Glue the Rainbow Die Cut pieces to Sugar Cardstock and cut out with scissors. Adhere the ends of the rainbow to the inside of the Mini Popcorn Boxes.
  • Stamp “Lucky” on Sugar cardstock and cut out. Stamp “to know you” on the Basic Banner. Secure the sentiments to the front of the Mini Popcorn Boxes.
  • Fill your St. Patrick’s Day rainbow treat with something GOLD of course! We like Rolo Chewy Caramels in Milk Chocolateat the Alvarez house.

A Muse Studio Mini Popcorn Box Flower Basket

Happy thanksgiving all! I wonder if you all know how much you mean to me? Really! Because of you I am challenged everyday, I grow personally and professionally, I learn new skills, I go new places, I try harder, and I live deeper! I am so grateful to you who read and are inspired. I am so thankful for all of you who support my A Muse Studio business through your orders, class attendance and parties. I know I said all this in my recent newsletter, but I want to also say it to any Kitchen Table Stamper Blog readers who might not subscribe to the newsletter. Thank you!

Today I thought I would share a little of the growth you inspire. I have long wanted to take better, more professional photos for your enjoyment. Today is one of the first steps on that journey. These are two of the first pictures taken with a real camera. I don’t know if you know, but all photos on my blog (up to this point) have been take with my cell phone and heavily edited in PSE8. Today I used a Canon Rebel T5i. The first picture is taken on the Close-Up mode where the camera picks the best settings for the picture. The second picture is taken in Manual Exposure with settings I adjusted myself (after watching a couple of YouTube videos). Pretty cool huh?

This little flower basket was dreamed up by my downline Linda and I am posting it today because I promised Kay I would! 😉 I have long been meaning to make one of these baskets with the A Muse Studio Mini Popcorn Box Die. First I cut two pieces of Pebble Petite Hexagon Cardstock using the A Muse Studio Mini Popcorn Box Die. I also cut lots of layers of Melon, Watermelon, Lime and Bermuda A Muse Studio Crepe Paper with the A Muse Studio Flowers Die Set. Before I assembled the Mini Popcorn Box I embellished all four top edges with crepe paper flowers. Click here for crepe paper flower how to VIDEO. When the flowers were secure I assembled the box and added a 1/4″ x 8.5″ Pebble cardstock handle. Pretty and easy.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate tomorrow. I hope you will stop back on Friday for a peek at the 12 Days of Christmas tutorials that start this week.
