Today I would like to share with you my projects which features the available exclusively throughout May 2018 for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75.
Its been a tough week, I've been really sick with a head cold and my sister flew out to live in the UK from living with us for the last 2 years, as I'm writing this she is in the air. So I made a card for the Blog Hop and realised I still wasn't 100% well when I'd used next months Stamp of the Month instead of this one (YAY for being ready a month early for next month!). So I needed to make a new card. I used the new paper that was launched TODAY with the New Seasonal Expressions Catalogue. I LOVE this paper set that I've used is called Workshops Your Way® Beautiful Friendship Scrapbooking Kit. *Come back to us on the 20th May for our Beautiful Friendship Scrapbooking Kit Blog Hop to see more ideas!
I used the lovely Colour of the Year and white laced paper in this Beautiful Friendship set and some vellum with spots (from next months National Scrapbooking Month papers) to stamp on with then I fussy cut it out with the
I stamped the straw onto White Daisy Cardstock with and fussy cut that out too. To make the straw look more realistically coming from the jar, I sliced a cut into the "opening" of the jar so the straw appears to have the allusion of coming up out of the jar. I just used my scissors to slice a line but you could use your blade from the 12 inch trimmer.
Next I decided I needed to mat the pink lace with some more smoothie. I used one of the PML cards True Story and cut it down from 4x6 to 4x5.25 inches and then the pink lace was just under 3.75x5 inches on
To Finish it off I stamped Eat, Drink, Barbecue with the & underneath (I think its intended to be put next to the Drink for Eat, Drink & Barbecue) but I cut the "make a wish" banner from the top of one of the small 3x4 PML cards and added that to the card. So now it reads... Eat, Drink, Barbecue & Make a Wish.
At the bottom I stamped some Juniper Cardstock for the leaf and fussy cut them out. on some
When I adhered them all down, I used the white dots of the vellum jar to hide the adhesive.
One sample is all I could manage this time, as I've got a second card made too for next month. I already have my one sample for next months stamp of the month so maybe I'll do a second or third in the next month :)
