Coffee Love by Michele


Good morning my crafty, coffee loving friends! We are so excited to be participating in the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and to be a Super Sponsor too!

  Michele here with a card today using the new set from SRM called, Coffee Plans! It is such a fun set!  First, here's a look at the stamp! Leave a comment and you might just WIN it!


I loved all of the images and thought, why not use ALL of them on my card? ;).


I cut each image in a different shaped circle and sponged a bit of pink ink while the die was still in place.  I used Copics for the images and added glossy accents to each.  I think I went a little nutty with the glitter.....but hey! Glitter makes everything better right?  (Or is that chocolate?)
I used a large LOVE Die cut because I really wanted to get across how much I LOVE my coffee! I added a few sequins, and a little felt heart to finish off the card.  


Thank you for stopping by today!!

Glow Stick Tubes by Samantha



Hello! Samantha here today to share a project that is perfect for the 4th of July and, as an added bonus it's easy and fast! In my book, it doesn't get much better than an easy project that your kids will love during the busy summer months.


We love taking glow sticks with us when we go out to watch the 4th of July fireworks. Decorating some SRM Magic Wand Tubes is a fun way to package the glow sticks and make sure they don't get cracked and activated ahead of time. 


The Magic Wand Tubes are big enough to hold about 5 glow sticks, which is enough to make a couple of bracelets and a necklace. To decorate the tubes I used a mix of SRM's 4th of July themed stickers from Say It With Stickers 4th of JulyExpress Yourself 4th of July, and Stickers By the Dozen Patriotic


Just fill your tube with glow sticks, decorate with stickers, and you've got a fast and fun 4th of July treat!

Traveler's Journal by Tobi


Hi there, it's Tobi here with a DIY planner using a traveller's journal and of course, SRM stamps. 

Here are some things that have added up to my current planner situation:

~ I've tried the planner thing... I don't get it, OR I'm not good at it. 

~ I've recently gotten into hand lettering and have started to collect journals to practice in. 

~ I had a very stressful month and kept a notebook of everything i had to remember and keep track of and it really worked for me. 

So, because of these factors, I thought i would continue with the notebook/hand-lettering/journal format, but organize it a little better using various stamps and supplies. 


So I've got my day divided into three zones: 
1) School (I'm a teacher)
2) After school - which includes clubs and rehearsals/performances
3) dinner (we have meal-plans)


As much as I can, I try to fill in the spots using bounce lettering (the style of calligraphy I am working on) so I can practice as many letter combos as possible. 

Here's a mostly blank page so you can see how it looks before I fill it out:


Thanks for stopping by, I hope this was inspiring!

Thanks Card by Amber



Hello SRM Sticker fans. It's Amber here, today I have this fun thank you card to share. My card features two different SRM stamp sets, BIG Praise God and BIG Thank You.


I used one of the border stamps from SRM's BIG Praise God stamp set to create my background. I repeatedly stamped the border in a bright pink ink across my light pink cardstock. Once I had the entire background stamped I die cut my stamped background piece with a large pierced rectangle die and misted the entire piece with some Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist. I let my panel dry over night and then stamped the big "Thanks' stamp in black ink from SRM's BIG Thank You stamp set and stamped the second half of my sentiment from a stamp set I had in my stash.  


I wanted to add a fun little image to go along with my sentiment so I stamped a cute little penguin onto some white cardstock, colored him with some Spectrum Noir markers, and fussy cut around him. I added him to the upper right side of my card right above my sentiment with some foam tape. Cute, right? This card didn't take long at all, you could easily recreate this with any sentiment stamp set you have in your stash. I hope you enjoyed my card today. Thanks for visiting!

Doggie Bandana Personalized with Vinyl by Shantaie


Hi! It's Shantaie and my puppy Lilly here, and we have a fun heat transfer vinyl project for you today.
 
The best attribute to heat transfer vinyl is how easy it is to personalize most anything, like this fashionable doggie bandana!
 

Use your die cutting machine, or alphabet dies to cut out your pets name. Be sure to cut the heat transfer in reverse and simply iron onto surface for a permanent bond.  Follow all instructions, and be sure to use a fabric that can handle high heat. 


For my bandana I have used pink heat transfer vinyl on a pre-made bandana in gray stripes. Lilly is always happy to see the camera, and pranced around the house as if she were a puppy super model ha ha. She loves it when she gets something new to "wear" 


Keep these bandanas in mind for quick gifts for all the animal lovers in your life, or whip up a few for your adorable four legged friends for every season. 

Thank you for stopping by the SRM blog today, and for letting Lilly show you her new bandana!!

The first stamp is called "Bible Backgrounds", perfect to embellish your Bible pages as you prepare to journal.  This stamp offers 6 different backgrounds that can be used in so many different ways. 


Next is a stamp called "Amen Frames" that is sure to embellish your Bible pages, Scrapbook pages or cards!  You can stamp or write special words or images inside of your frames as well. 


Everyone loves banners, and this next stamp "Bible Banners" is a wonderful way to proclaim the word.

And last but not least is our new "Scripture Notes" stamp with lots of small words that are perfect for Bible Journaling.  And if you take a close look you will see that the words rhyme making them almost like a meditation.  And check out the border at the bottom.  Turn it sideways and it's a perfect way to make bullet points in your Bible or Faith Planner.
