Fabulous Pinterest-inspired projects


  Happy Friday and thanks for visiting us on this Fabulous Friday!  This week we are looking to Pinterest for inspiration in our stamping projects.  Are you hopelessly addicted to Pinterest like we are?  Pinterest has had such a huge influence on the world that a new word was created for when someone is inspired by something that they have found there - pinspired.  We're hoping that by sharing our "pinspirations" maybe you'll discover some new boards to follow by clicking through to our individual blog posts to see where our inspiration originated... enjoy!

  Up first is Guest Designer Cindy Blekas with her gorgeous altered chocolate kiss holder - be sure to hop over to her blog post here to find out how she created it and what her pinspiration project is.


  And next we have this super-cute Hello Kitty curvy keepsake box created by Guest Designer Jennifer Rawlings.  You'll want to visit her blog post here to find out how she created these and also to see what pinspired her.


  Check out Karla's super-cute ice cream card featuring the RHMC Charities stamp set Sprinkles of Life.  Be sure to head to her blog here to see her pinspiration project.


  Rachel created this cheerful card using the Bountiful Border stamp set. Check out her blog for more information and to see the card from Pinterest that inspired her.  

  And here is my design this week... please hop over to my blog post here to check out what pinspired me this week.

  We hope that if you are not currently using Pinterest, that you can certainly see why you should start!  There is so much inspiration out there and Pinterest is a great way of organizing all those great websites and blog postings you come across.

Thanks for visiting and see you next week!!

Fabulous Manly Cards

I don't know what it is about cards for guys...I think if you asked most card makers they would clearly state that they are their least favorite to make. Well, the Sisters in Stamping have lots of Masculine cards to show you this week to help-- let's get started!



Our first card is one of our guest designers Jennifer Rawlings. Love the "splatter" under the camera, here is a link to Jennifer's blog to check it out.


Next is Debbie with her beachy Masculine card. Debbie's blog has all of the details on how she created her fun card.


This is Karla's card for this week's Masculine theme, it has juvenile subject. Karla's blog has more pictures of her card.


Rachel is next with a decidedly school themed card....wonder if she's trying to say something to us? Here is the link to Rachel's blog so you can go see for yourself.


And here is our last guest designer Cindy Blekas, really like the stars cut from Stampin' Up!'s Silver Foil Sheets. The link to Cindy's blog will give you more particulars on her project.

A Parade of Ribbon

Hello and welcome to another Fabulous Friday post! We are showcasing ribbon this week, it's an inexpensive addition to any project. The best thing about Stampin' Up!'s ribbons is that they are all color coordinated to their inks and paper.

You really see that with Debbie's card, her 1 1/4" Bermuda Bay Striped Grosgrain Ribbon matches perfectly with the rest of her card. Click here for directions on creating her card.

Rachel's project uses 3/8" Basic Black Ribbon for the handles on her cute little gift bag. She used another ribbon on her bag-- can you spot it? Here is a link to her blog.



Lastly, here is Karla's project. She used the new InColor ribbon 1" Delightful Dijon Dotted Lace Trim. You can go to her blog to take a look at it close up.

Thank-you for dropping by today and checking us out and, have a happy Friday!
