Flickr Friday

I love to pop over to our Flickr and check out who has been playing with their SRM.  For today's Flickr Friday, a new feature, I have spotted a few beautiful cards from former design team member Virginia Lu.  What a talent!

Virginia created this beautiful card and added a special touch using a SRM white 4" doily.  Love the gold touches with the doily.  

Love the gold touches with the doily. 

Thanks Virginia for continuing to love your SRM.  How lucky we are to have had Virginia as part of our design team.

So Sweet by Michele

Michele here with a shaped card to share with you today! After being mojo-less for several weeks, I feel like it is starting to come back.  (Thank goodness!) I love shaped cards and this blender is such a cute cut!  I added loads of glitter, some die cut flowers, and silk ribbon tied with twine. 

The sentiment is from the We've Got Your Sticker-Sweet collection.  The sticker was adhered to a piece of vellum to remain somewhat translucent.  

Thanks for popping by for a visit!
Have a great day!

Egg-stra Special Treat Box by Shantaie

Hello to all of you who are thinking of spring! Its not that far away, and with it comes my favorite, Easter time! Soft velvety shades of  pinks and blues, greens and yellows everywhere.  Oh how I love spring! 

Create a pretty gift to give, or to pop into an Easter basket using our small clear tote, it's the perfect size for 2 egg shaped lip balms in pretty pastel hues. 
I cut a piece of patterned paper 3 5/8"X 9" and scored it at 1" and 3" for the insert. simply pop it in and add a bit of shred or Easter grass and the lip balm. Close and embellish.
Here I have used a coordinating border topped with the new little borders in baby blue and a few little stickers from the express yourself Easter sheet.

The top is a SRM 4" doily folded in half and topped with another sticker greeting from Say it with stickers Easter and a grouping of vertical banners, bakers twine  and a bow topped mini clothes pin.  This is so pretty and cheerful in person, and a fun plus useful gift to receive!
 What are you planning to put in your Easter containers this year? The clear tote can be used for any number of little gifts for boys and girls, just change the colors and add your own style to the box, how cute would this be with iced cookies or little cars in it? 
 Thanks for stopping in, Shantaie

Valentine's Day Craft with SRM! by Angi

It's time to gear up for Valentine's Day! Hello everyone! Angi here with a fun gift bag idea that your sweetheart is sure to love. I recently found some fun items and wood pieces. I thought it would be fun to dress them up with SRM Stickers.

I really love the Express Yourself - Valentine and the 
We've Got Your Sticker - Sweet packs. They have the cutest designs that your sweetheart will love. And don't you just love the way that you can dress up SRM's muslin bags with stickers?

The stickers work very well on wood and clothespins too. I even used some on a small gift bag. They are strong enough to stick on a variety of surfaces.

I hope you enjoyed my fun project today! Be sure to check out all of the fun Valentine's items in the SRM Store!

Home Sweet Home by Amy

Hello!!  This is Amy here with a fun new card using the Home Sweet Home/Neighborhood stamp set from Jane's Doodles.

This would be prefect for someone that is moving into a new home or has returned home from an extended absence.  I just love the whimsical look of these fun houses.

I colored in the images with Copic markers and then cut them all out.  I layered them on a white cardstock base with some foam adhesive and tied some Marigold bakers twine at the bottom.  I also stamped a sentiment under the image and added a bit of border from the Valentine's Sticker Stitches under it.  Here is a closer look…..

I just love coloring and when I can combine it with a card to give away, even better! 

Have a great day!!

Month of February Planner Pages by Annette

 Happy Day SRM Stickers Friends.
Annette Allen here with you today.
Click on all the photos to see more detail!

Today I am trying something new.
This is my very first time experimenting with planner pages.
I have to say with all the fun product SRM Stickers has to offer sure makes it easy to create a fun month of planner pages. 

Today I am getting crafty with:
SRM Stickers...

I also used: Pebbles: We Got Together 6x6 paper pad.

I have a simple schedule and did not require much note-reminders, but it was fun decorating it. The Planner Icon Stickers color perfectly with Copic markers. Just in cause you want to add a little color to match your color theme for the month.

Go crazy and fill those planner pages with all sorts of cuteness.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Friend by Lesley

Hello SRM Fans! Lesley here sharing a card I made using watercoloring with distress inks! I love this adorable cat stamp set called A Cat's Life from Jane's Doodles! SO super cute and fun to color.

 I decided to ink the cat images with waterproof black ink and try colouring them with my distress inks. I washed a light blue sky behind them and added some sequins for a bit of sparkle. The twine is called Mandarin.  I love using orange and aqua together on a card!

I wanted a larger sentiment for my card and so I dug out my favourite stickers from SRM; the Fancy Sentiment/Thinking of You stickers! They have such a lovely font! 

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!

Be My Valentine Treat Bags by Shantaie

Hi, Shantaie here with a trio of candy filled treats for Valentines.
I filled my rustic linen bags with lace with jelly beans in shades of reds, pinks, and whites, you know how it is the red ones are always the favorites! 
I used the Valentine stickers by the dozen, over a gold flag and added a bit of extra bling with sequins. A corrugated glitter cardstock was used to punch out sparkly hearts, and a bitty tag stamped with hearts from the  tea time stamp set is tied on with my favorite gold shimmer twine 

I wanted my treat bags to be pretty and shimmery but still be super quick for last minute gifts or to make one for everyone the whole office! Spread the love! 

Happy day, and save a few red jelly beans for yourself. ;)

I Love You by Michele

Good morning! Michele here with a little Valentine/anniversary card to share with you!

I  absolutely adore this new Jane's Doodle's set called, Love Birds!   It is such a sweet set.  I wanted these little birdies to profess their love by moonlight.  So I punched a circle out of scrap card stock and placed it over my "good" card stock.  I sponged yellow ink.  Then I took the circle I had punched, laid it over the yellow moon, and sponged shades of blue around it. 

I love the halo effect I had and decided to add a bit of glitter around it.  The bird were colored with Copic markers.  I added glossy accents to their wings and beaks.  I sprinkled glitter over them.  I also added Flower Soft to the branch for added dimension and texture. I slipped a doily between layers for added sweetness.  ;) 

I was on a glossy accents kick I guess, because I also added it to the sentiment.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Blessed Bible Journaling by Christine

Have you tried out Bible Journaling yet? Many people journal right in their bible but I choose to be inspired by the bible to create faith based artwork.  Hope you enjoy it! 

 Christine joining you today to share a new Bible inspired piece using the newest stamps from SRM! At the end of a long, challenging week - sitting down with some watercolor paints, my Bible, and beautiful stamps was just what my heart needed.  Here's what I created to share with you:

I used the new BIG Faith Stamps to create my row of "Blessed" words.  

I used nine as a base to journal in the part of scripture called the Beattitudes from Matthew 5.  Each phrase begins with "Blessed" in the verses and I thought it would be neat to do those.

I created my background using watercolors.  That was a first for me!  I got some watercolor paper and then just started painting circles and overlapping them.  

After I added in all the writing/word stamping that I wanted on it I used the cross stamp from Words of Faith stamp set and added some of those.  

I then doodled some circles and actually decided to fill in the crosses to give it a bold punch! I love that the cross is open so you have the option to add designs or doodles to it!  I'm going to be hanging this up just above my scrapbooking desk as a regular reminder for myself!
