Bookmarks for Compassion Project in Northern Thailand

What am I doing on a Saturday evening whilst watching the football- crafting of course! I am making 60 bookmarks to send to the Compassion Project in Northern Thailand where Athicha attends regularly on a Sunday. 

I am so blessed to be able to support her, her family and wider community children.  

Now to add some ribbon, as I will send some pencils for the children to colour them in.

Art with Heart Team Blog Hop - Merry Little Labels & Everyday Label Punch

Tonight some of the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team are sharing some fun and fabulous ideas to inspire you from the NEW Holiday Catalogue available to purchase from 1 September 2017 to 2 January 2018.  Be sure to request your copy of the Catalogue TODAY!

It's the first time that I am using products from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue and I decided to use the matching Merry Little Labels stamp set and Everyday Label Punch.  Wow I am already in love with this punch, it's great with these new stamp sets in the Holiday Catalogue but will go with any of the large sentiments that you have in your Stampin' Up! collection.

I love to make gifts for Christmas and this year I am going to be making some tea light candles and packing them in these beautiful white Mini Pizza Boxes (they also are food safe, so you could pop in some treats or Stampin' Up! will be releasing Whisper White 3" x 3" Envelopes so you could make cards or tags, the ideas are endless).

I have made a belly band with the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper and then tided the gorgeous Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon and created a bow and then I gold embossed the sentiments from the Merry Little Labels and punched it out with the Everyday Label punch and layered this onto a Gold Foil Sheet.

A really quick and simple idea but oh so beautiful and striking.

CASE-ing the Catty Ribbon of Courage and Support Ribbon Framelits - #CTC142

This week the CASE-ing the Catty Team are featuring the Love and Sympathy section of the Annual Catalogue from page 86 to 101.  I have been making a few sympathy cards of late so I decided to use a Love set.

You may be starting here so welcome or you may have come from Mel Pagano. 

I am using one of the stamp sets that means so much to me, as it reflects the Ribbon of Courage symbol, which I have inked up in a couple of shades of pink as Breast Cancer has impacted my family.

I used the Powder Pink Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper instead of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and mounted the yardstick in Silver Foil which I think really made it stand out.

I inked up the 2 size hearts and added a strip of the DSP to the inside of the card to make it that bit more special for the receiver of this card.

Stamp Set:  Ribbon of Courage
Cardstock:  Powder Pink, Silver Foil, Whisper White, Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink:  Flirty Flamingo
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Support Ribbon Framelit Dies

I don't always decorate the inside of my cards but I did with this special one.
