Flowers, Flowers, and More Flowers! by Michele


Hi there! Michele here with a plethora of flowers!  I am in LOVE with these floral fabric bags!  As a crafter there are several things I can't live without.  
Like...... glitter. (Obviously!)
Water colors.
Ribbon.
And.....flowers!

So why not dress these babies up with another flower?  You can never have enough right?  I used SRM's Jane Doodle's stamp set called Fancy Doodles.  I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it in white.  I used water colors and fussy cut them.   

SRM Stickers Blog - Flowers, Flowers, and More Flowers! by Michele - #floralbags #fabricbags #giftbags #fancydoodles #stickers #DIY

I added satin ribbon, twine, and a sentiment from the We've Got Your Border (bright) collection.

I hope you share my flower addiction and love these bags as much as I do!

Back to School & Thank you Teacher by Lesley


Hello SRM fans! Lesley Croghan here sharing a couple of fun little gifts for back to school time! 

SRM Stickers Blog - Back to School & Thank you Teacher by Lesley - #gift #backtoschool #teacher #stickers #embossedglassinebag #stitches

This first project would be something fun and "sweet" to put into your child's lunch on the first day of school! Imagine them finding this little box full of "sugar-free" sweets to share with their new classmates. I used the Freestyle School stickers to decorate the little Mini Box. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Back to School & Thank you Teacher by Lesley - #gift #backtoschool #teacher #stickers #embossedglassinebag #stitches

I just love the wonderful quotes in the Say it with Stickers/Teacher set. I placed the sentiment on a tag and added some black Sticker Stitches on it too.

Using a large Chevron Embossed Glassine bag, I put in some cute new pencils and pens for the teacher.

2016 Planner/Date Book by Shannon

Welcome back to Shannon Morgan.  She's an artist and a crafter and a lover of all things SRM.  And she's definitely a SRM All Star!  


Now let's hear from Shannon in her own words. 

******

Hello!  Shannon joining you today with a date book creation.  Living in the moment, I am not one to look far ahead in the future. I am a procrastinator by nature and I have been known to stay up in the wee hours of the morning to pack for a trip or moving. 

Imagine my delight as I created a sweet little mini album and/or date book for 2016…

Here's the cover, you'll find a doily tucked beneath the layers, some twine, some sticker stitches and a brightly colored 2016 tab.

SRM Stickers Blog - 2016 Planner/Date Book by Shannon - #2016 #planner #minialbum #stickers #stickerstitches #calendarmonths #doilies #twine #punchedpieces

I used some BRAND, SPANKING NEW SRM Year of Memories Sticker/2016, plus Sticker Stitches (of course), doiliestwine and punched pieces.

Open the pages of this album and you'll see sticker stitches and the months here and there. The focus on this album is "little things"..you can use it for remembering birthdays, dates, or mini month milestones. Click on each image to enlarge to see all the little details.

March and April are cheery and simple:

Annette Allen here with you today to share a little Christmas in July.

SRM Stickers Blog - Christmas in July by Annette - #card #tag #christmas #fancysentiments #stickers #die #janesdoodles #tistheseason #twine

Today I am playing with:

SRM Stickers Blog - Christmas in July by Annette - #card #tag #christmas #fancysentiments #stickers #die #janesdoodles #tistheseason #twine

Who doesn't love a cute Santa on a card? I adore these sweet Christmas images from Janes Doodles: Tis the Season. I love the big sentiment from Fancy Sticker Sentiments (Christmas) it was perfect for the background and well it kind of says it all, don't you think?

SRM Stickers Blog - Christmas in July by Annette - #card #tag #christmas #fancysentiments #stickers #die #janesdoodles #tistheseason #twine

 This is another way to show you how you can use the new Wafer Thin Die for Decorative Calendar Stickers

SRM Stickers Blog - 2016 Flip Calendar by Annette - #minicalendar #2016 #flipcalendar #die #gift

You don't just have to use it for the calendar. It is also perfect for all those fun Christmas tags you will be making. See how perfectly the sweet raindeer from Janes Doodles: Tis the Season fits on it and you can still add some fun SRM Stickers. The background on the card and tag is a stencil.  

SRM Stickers Blog - Christmas in July by Annette - #card #tag #christmas #fancysentiments #stickers #die #janesdoodles #tistheseason #twine

Well I hope that today's post has inspired you to get started on those fun Christmas cards and tags.  With the way this year is flying by you better get started! :)

I so enjoyed creating this super fun card!! I used lots of SRM goodness, including the new Big Stamp-Hello set and the We've Got Your Sticker-Hello set.

SRM Stickers Blog - Birdie BIG Hello by Tenia - #card #BIGstamps #BIGhello #hello #stickers #stampedstitches

I created this card from white cardstock. On another slightly smaller piece of white cardstock I adhered patterned paper, added the herringbone Stamped Stitches (OOOOOOOOOOOH LOVE!!), added the birdie sticker image and a bit of washi tape. Next I stamped and embossed the hello sentiment onto black cardstock, trimmed and adhered to card using foam adhesive.

Lace Layered Card by Shantaie


 Shantaie here today and I've got to say… I love lace!  Lace is pretty no matter how its used, but as a layer on a card it is gorgeous! I love the softness it adds while still adding texture and dimension. In a word - delicious!


SRM Blog - Lace Layered Card by Shantaie - #ard #stickers #fancystickers #twine #janesdoodles #autumnblessings #lace #chalkmarkers #twine

I spritzed the corners with a touch of glimmer mist to shade the paper and lace just a bit. I stamped the sunflower from Jane's Doodles Autumn blessings stamp set in black momento ink and colored it in with spectrum noir markers, that touch of white was achieved with one of our chalk markers (cool huh?)

SRM Blog - Lace Layered Card by Shantaie - #ard #stickers #fancystickers #twine #janesdoodles #autumnblessings #lace #chalkmarkers #twine

I added a strand of twine and a bitty tag topped with a fancy sentiment sticker for an all occasion greeting. I love the gold mixed with lace and a sweet floral stamp


This is one of those cards that I will have a hard time parting with! :)

Birthday Celebration by Lesley

Look who's back!  It's Lesley Croghan with her beautiful creations.  So happy to have her back on the SRM All Star Team. 


Now let's hear from Lesley in her own words…

*****
Hello SRM fans! Lesley Croghan excited to be here with my first design team post as a returning member of the SRM Design Team! Today I am sharing a little "birthday purse" and matching birthday card I made for my best friend! I used Say it with Stickers/Birthday to decorate my card and Purse-Small, which is a party favor container found in the SRM online store.

SRM Stickers Blog - Birthday Celebration by Lesley - #birthday #giftset #card #stickers #clearpurse #solidtwine #giftset #DIY

I filled the "small purse" with some Double Bubble bubble gum! Yum!

SRM Stickers Blog - Birthday Celebration by Lesley - #birthday #giftset #card #stickers #clearpurse #solidtwine #giftset #DIY

I also used some Solid Mandarin Twine and a little strip of designer paper. The little gift stickers are easy to use. All I did was stick them on some white paper and then punched them out with my 1" square punch.

SRM Stickers Blog - Birthday Celebration by Lesley - #birthday #giftset #card #stickers #clearpurse #solidtwine #giftset #DIY

For the card, I used the same designer paper; adding some more of the Say it with Stickers/Birthday stickers and Solid Mandarin Twine.

SRM Stickers Blog - Birthday Celebration by Lesley - #birthday #giftset #card #stickers #clearpurse #solidtwine #giftset #DIY

Can't wait to give this special set to my friend!  Hope that you've been inspired to make something special for someone you know with a birthday coming up!

Now let's hear from Michele in her own words…

******

Hey there! Michele here with a water colored card to share with you today!  I used this pretty new set by Jane's Doodles for SRM called Fancy Doodles

SRM Stickers Blog - You Make Me Smile by Michele - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #borders #janesdoodles #clearstamps #fancydoodles

I stamped each flower twice with Versamark and heat embossed it in white. I used water colors on each flower and leaf. 

SRM Stickers Blog - You Make Me Smile by Michele - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #borders #janesdoodles #clearstamps #fancydoodles

I fussy cut the flowers and popped the center flower up with foam tape. I added a pearl to each of the centers.   
SRM Stickers Blog - You Make Me Smile by Michele - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #borders #janesdoodles #clearstamps #fancydoodles

I water colored the back panel in shades of purple and gold.  For my finishing touches I added several sequins, satin ribbon, and a clear sticker sentiment from SRM's Life is Good Border.

A 2016 Birthday Calendar Organizer by Tessa Wise


Hi!  It's Tessa Wise sharing a fun project with you today.   I created a birthday calendar that doubles as a card organizer.

SRM Stickers Blog - A 2016 Birthday Calendar Organizer by Tessa Wise - #minicalendar #2016 #floralbags #stickers #twine #die #DIY

The organizer is an A2 Clear Card Box.  It holds about 8 cards plus envelopes.  I decorated it with the large 2016 sticker from the Year of Memories/2016 sheet and added some cardstock and patterned papers around the middle of the box.  I also added a bit of Honeydew Baker's Twine around it for embellishment.

SRM Stickers Blog - A 2016 Birthday Calendar Organizer by Tessa Wise - #minicalendar #2016 #floralbags #stickers #twine #die #DIY

In the center of the box, I added a mini calendar sticker from the Mini Calendar Stickers/Decorative 2016 Sticker Sheet.  The year's worth of calendar stickers have been stuck down onto white cardstock and diecut using the new Wafer Thin Die made especially for them.  

I loved using this new decorative die for the Mini Calendar Deco design for this project!

SRM Stickers Blog - A 2016 Birthday Calendar Organizer by Tessa Wise - #minicalendar #2016 #floralbags #stickers #twine #die #DIY

I can circle the important dates each month so I don't forget to send my cards!  The extra month diecuts fit perfectly in one of the new Vintage Floral Bags:

SRM Stickers Blog - A 2016 Birthday Calendar Organizer by Tessa Wise - #minicalendar #2016 #floralbags #stickers #twine #die #DIY

Each month has a bit of velcro tape on the back of it.  I can easily change out each month as I go through the year.

SRM Stickers Blog - A 2016 Birthday Calendar Organizer by Tessa Wise - #minicalendar #2016 #floralbags #stickers #twine #die #DIY

When a new month comes around, I just change out the calendar and add my cards for that month!
