Ornate Thanks Mini Desk Calendar

Hi Stampers. Happy (fresh start) Monday. My goal for this week is to get more organized. One thing I need to keep me organized is a good calendar!  I need to use my planner more… but a good desk calendar for quick reference is good, too. For today’s post, I’m combining an easel card with a calendar and tossing in a note pad to make it even more useful.

You have probably seen me do many easel cards in the past.  I’ve done regular easel cards (see one here), sideways easel cards (see one here), some with a twist (see one here) and even some fancy easel cards (see one here)…

The basics of the calendar are the same as an easel card.  I started with an Mossy Meadow card base 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″.  The front of the easel has an extra 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Mossy Meadow CS, with a layer of the Ornate Garden DSP over that.

The small calendars can be purchased online at Taylored Expressions.  I mounted the calendar onto a layer of Poppy Parade CS that was slightly larger.

Once propped up, you see that it is lined with another layer of the same DSP.  You will also see that I have covered a post it note page with a back layer of Bumblebee CS and a front layer of Ornate Garden DSP.

The sentiment was stamped using the Ornate Thanks stamp set onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS that was then die cut using the stitched rectangle dies.  That was mounted over an Old Olive frame die cut using the Ornate Frames Dies.  These are then mounted on Stampin’ Dimensionals.  More detailed information can be found in the video below.

Spring Sampler Class Project

Hi Stampers.  Today I held a class on how to create this adorable spring sampler. We used the Free As A Bird and the Fable Friends stamp set.  The background is an 8″ x 8″ piece of Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The color palette for our Spring Sampler were pulled from the Bird Ballad DSP. I then cut 2″ x 2″ squares of each color, so people could arrange them on the background until they liked how it looked.

For the large rectangle, I cut colored cardstock to 2″ x 4-1/4″.  The Whisper White pieces are 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ and 1-3/4″ x 4″.  We stamped spring sampler images onto the Whisper White using the Free As A Bird and Fable Friends in Memento Black ink.

All images were colored with the Stampin’ Blends. I can’t emphasize enough how much I love those blends! I wasn’t sure how to color the birds, so I copied the coloring on the birds in the Bird Ballad DSP.

This is what the completed spring sampler project looks like in a frame.  It also looked great in a black frame – it really made the color POP!  I hope you give one a try – it’s fun!

Christmas Themed Framed Samplers

Hi Stampers. Two weeks ago I shared a FALL themed sampler that I made. (See that post HERE) While I was in the mood to do samplers, I did several.  Today I am showing you the two Chritmas themed ones I made.  All the measurements are the same, I just used different papers, ink colors and stamps.

Stampin' Up! Winter and Christmas framed samplers home decor by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

These frames are 8″ x 8″ and can be purchased on Amazon with my affiliate link HERE. The background for both of these are glimmer paper. Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ colored cardstock with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ layer over those.  I used Whisper White CS to stamp onto.  There are 1/4″ border between squares. One of the blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.

This sampler is a little of everything Christmas – I’ve tried to list all the supplies below.  It has a Christmas feel to it complete with Santa And an Elf and a few  Christmas trees.

This sampler used mostly the Snowman Season Bundle and Let it Snow DSP, with a few extras thrown in.  I found that the Snow Globe Dies worked perfectly for my 2″ squares.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

Figuring out the layout took a little bit of math.  I started with 2″ x 2″ blocks.  Since i wanted 1/4″ borders, I knew I could get three 2″ blocks each way.  The three 2″ blocks added to 6″.  The gap between blocks were two 1/4″ gaps. Which gave me 6-1/2″.  Eight inches minus 6-1/2″ left me with an extra 1-1/2″ – putting half on either side gave me 3/4″ each side.  The diagram may help explain what I am trying to say here.

I used the green squares as placeholders while I arranged the four corner squares. Then I centered the other squares between the corners.  After all my squares were attached I removed the green placeholder squares.

Fall Framed Sampler Home Decor

Hi Stampers. For my craft fairs this weekend, I made several framed samplers to sell.  Today I am sharing one of them with you.

Stampin' Up! 8" x 8" framed sampler home decor for Fall/Autumn by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This framed sampler is 8″ x 8″.  The base is Very Vanilla with Crushed Curry over that and then more Very Vanilla CS.  I used several stamp sets and dies to make this sampler.  Where I did not have coordinating dies – I used my Brother Scan and Cut machine. (I love that machine!) Most of my squares are 2″ x 2″ Crushed Curry with 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″ Very Vanilla that I stamped onto with a 1/4″ border between squares.  Two of the Crushed Curry blocks are rectangles – 2″ x 4-1/4″. The 4-1/4″ was made by adding the 2″ plus 2″ plus the 1/4″ gap.  For the word “FALL”  I used my beloved (retired) Large Alphabet Dies and the Come to Gather DSP.

It Starts With Art Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers.  A few months ago I offered a class to make this adorable framed sampler.  I just love how it came out and hung it on the wall in my studio for all who enter to enjoy.  Today I’m sharing it with you, my blog followers!

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

This sampler fits in an 8″ x 8″ shadow box frame.  The background is a fairly simple piece of Designer Series Paper.  I used the Crafting Forever and It Starts With Art stamp sets.  I also had a retired single stamp of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart. Most of the stamping wasThis is  done using Momento Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

While some images are stamped directly onto the Whisper White squares, some were stamped onto scraps of Whisper White CS and cut out with the coordinating dies or fussy cut with paper snips (or the Brother Scan n Cut).

Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Framed Sampler by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

I used an assortment of pretty colored cardstocks – Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Purple Posey, Pineapple Punch and Balmy Blue.  The “crafting forever – housework whenever” sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink and the “Do something creative everyday” is stamped in Gorgeous Grape ink.

This is a closeup of the Stampin’ Up! statement of the heart and those gorgeous Glitter Enamel Dots – they match my logo, don’t  you think?!?

It was a little complicated to try to get photos of this sampler actually IN the frame due to the reflection on the glass.  But, here it is…

Happy Tails & Nine Lives “Pet Vet” Framed Sampler

Hi Stampers. Do you have a pet?  Chances are if you have a pet – you have a vet.  How cute would this be in a veterinary office? This framed sampler is made using the Large Letter Dies, Happy Tails stamp set and Nine Lives stamp set. I saw this quite some time ago (somewhere online), I believe the idea came from fellow demonstrator Dori Schneider. I have changed it up some and made it my own.  I plan to gift it to my Vet next time I take Sophie (my doggie) in for her shots.

Sophie is my constant companion in my craft studio. When I have classes, she is SURE that everyone is there to see her!!  She’s a love bug and everyone loves her back.  She makes me happy!  How could you not love that face??

It started with an 8″ x 8″ frame and an 8″ x 8″ piece of basic black CS.  I divided the 8″ by 3 and made miniature squares in Basic Gray CS to place over the base making my grid. (I had to be sure to allow for the spaces between the squares).  I then made a slightly smaller square in Whisper Whit CS.

I cut the letters from Basic Black CS using the Large Letter Framelit Dies. I am so sad they are retiring.  If you don’t have them yet, you need to hurry over to my store and buy them.  They are awesome and I use them for LOTS of things! I decorated around the letters and in the remaining squares using the Happy Tails bundle and the Nine Lives bundles.  Both stamp sets are photopolymer stamps with layers (the cat and dog have various stamps for stripes and spots) and have a coordinating punch, making it super easy. These two stamps sets will be carrying over, as well as the punches.  You can save 10% by buying the Happy Tails bundle from my store now. In the new catalog they will only be sold separately.
