Wilson Avenue Boutique- stop in and say hi!

Posted on April 25th, 2012, No Comments »

Hi Everyone,

Many of you know that over the past couple of years I've held a seasonal boutique in my home around the holidays. My husband would empty out most of our main floor and I'd section things off into booths and our house would become a store for a day or two, featuring about 20 local crafters. Well, I wanted to take my business to the next level (and Shad is tired of moving furniture!) so he and I decided to move to a new location on State Street in Lindon!

The boutique, called Wilson Avenue Boutique, will 'launch' next week, Thursday May 3rd and runs through Saturday the 5th. We are now much larger with over 40 crafters/vendors participating with room to grow! We have two more shows scheduled for this fall and plan on hosting a total of 4 a year moving forward. We are very excited and hope that those that are local can stop by and say hi!

The location is SUPER easy to find, we really lucked out with a prime State Street location and are thrilled for the potential this small business has. Thank you so much for your love, friendship and support- we hope to see you there!

Em (& Shad)

Blog Hog- Spring Banner

Posted on March 13th, 2012, No Comments »



Spring has sprung and it's time for Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous Spring themed cards and projects that we think you'll enjoy! You've probably hopped over from Maxine Conrad at Stamp to the Max!, I'm stop number 20 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for spring themed paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track

This Spring banner was so fun to create! It features the Tea Time Simply Scrappin' Kit and a couple clearance items as well. From the photos you can see how to re-create this banner. How fun would it be to put the word 'Easter' in or 'Mother'! Any 6 letter word would work really well with this banner. To see a larger images in this post simply click on the image and you will get a close-up.



TIP: The 'binding' is actually the Pink Pirouette 1 1/4" ribbon located on the Clearance Rack for just $2.99! I folded it in half, and ironed it, creating perfect, inexpensive binding! The Pennant die was also on the rack, although with items being sold out I'm not sure if that die is still there or not.



Above you can see the elements used to decorate each flag of the banner.


Look how cute it is when layered!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project! This is a quick post since I have a sick little one. If you have any questions please leave it in the comment section and I will answer as soon as possible.

Have a great day!

Elementary Elegance & Tutorial

Posted on February 14th, 2012, 8 Comments »


It's the occasion of the year as the Stampin' Pretty Pals share some fabulous cards and projects featuring Stampin' Up!'s Occasion Mini and Sale-A-Bration products on today's Pals Blog Hop!

You've probably hopped over from Leslie Davis at Ellalicious Elements, I'm stop number 3 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for paper projects showcasing Stampin' Up!'s Occasion Mini and Sale-A-Bration products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track


My card today features the Elementary Elegance stamp set & the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper- both from SU!'s Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Living up to their names, these lovely products are indeed elegant and enchanting!


Although hard to see in the picture below, I used our Dazzling Details (glitter glue) to accent the stamped image. Added to the crown, flowers, and popped up butterfly the touch of sparkle looks really great!

 


Here is a quick tutorial on how to create the unique die cut shape. Shown above in Pool Party and Very Vanilla.

Step #1: Run the Top Note Die through the Big Shot machine. This is how your card stock will look.


Step #2: Turn your card stock side-ways, centering the points and then run through the machine again.

 


This is what you will get!


Step #3: Do the same to a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Then, taking your Paper Snips, trim just inside the lines as show below. Stamp your image and you are done!


Here are a couple more versions I made using the same stamp set and pack of Designer Series Paper. So many possibilities! Love them!


 

 

Remember- these featured products are yours FREE during Stampin' Up's famous Sale-A-Bration! Visit my store for more information here. If you already have a SU! demo that you order through contact them today to take advantage of these awesome offers!
