Life's Moments Paper Bag Album - UStamp with Dawn and Friends


Here is the last project set that I created for the Paper Parade event at UStamp with Dawn and Friends!

It's a paper bag mini album!  This was the first time I'd made a paper bag album and I just loved it!  My favorite color combo lately seems to be Pink Pirouette + Marina Mist + Pear Pizzazz + Soft Suede, doesn't it?  And of course, you have to add in my all-time favorite Crumb Cake too. :)

Here are a few pages from the album:

With the next couple of pages, you can see there's a little side pocket under the Beau Château Side Note to the right:

Each set of pages has an insert where paper bag originally opened.  Here's one of my inserts:

My tutorial (along with over 40 other full-color PDF tutorials as a package deal!) can be found over at UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade.  Thanks for stopping by!

Housewarming Gift Set - UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade


My housewarming gift set project went live on UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade last week!  This project would be a great alternative to a bottle of wine or a toaster, don't you think? :)

The set includes a framed wall décor piece that says "Home Sweet Home", and has Mini Clothespins attached to allow you or the recipient to switch out the photo when they'd like!  Also included is a set of tumbled tile coasters.  I just love the Sweet Floral image, don't you?  I can see so many uses for this pretty background stamp!

If you'd like step-by-step instructions for this project and over 40 others, visit UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade!

Have a great rest of the weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Wreath - UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade!

Hello there!

I'm just popping in to show you one of my projects that I made for UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade that was posted this morning!  This event is all about celebrating our lovely cardstock and Designer Series Paper.

Wouldn't this be lovely over the mantel, as part of your Halloween decorations?  You could certainly hang it on your front door, too, but I wouldn't put it where it could be exposed to the elements (in between a front door and screen door could work).  And can you believe.. it's only made from about half a pack of the First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper!  It's definitely not a small wreath however, as it uses a 12" wooden wreath frame as the base, and is approximately 20" across.  It was so fun to make, and definitely creates a wow factor!

You can find my step-by-step tutorial as part of the UStamp with Dawn and Friends Paper Parade event!  There are over 40 full-color tutorials included in the price - a great deal!

Let me know what you think, and thanks for stopping by!
