Masculine Gift Bags by Angie

Hello SRM friends. Angie here with you today!!

Wanted to share with you some super easy to create gifts bags for all the dads in your life. These would be fun for small kids to make!  These would be great for a dad's birthday, for any occasion and especially for Father's Day.  This is what I made them for.

I used the awesome patterned bags from SRM, a free cut file that I found online and some letter stickers to make these bags. Pop a card or gift card inside and you have a quick but super cute gift for dear ol' dad! 

These bags are really easy to recreate and simple enough for the smallest of kids to help with. 

I hope you give these gift bags a try and impress dad on his special day!

Americana Decor by Shanna

Hello everyone!  July brings the pinnacle of and American summer in my house....Independence Day!  I have many fond memories watching glorious fireworks displays both when I was a child and more recently with my own children.  I love decorating around the holidays, so I decided to make a new addition to my summer decor with a fun vinyl sign utilizing SRM's vinyl!

I started with a wooden blank I picked up at my local craft store, it was a 12x12 square, so I enlarged the design I chose to fit those measurements and then went to cutting!  I love the extra bling the holographic vinyl added to the star!  

What do your summer decorations look like??

Volleyball Card by Karen

Hello!  Karen with you today to share a fun card.  My daughter is soon finishing up her first year of volleyball. With the Stickers By the Dozen, Take 2 Volleyball sheet, it was easy to create a quick and customized thank you card. 

My daughter's team is yellow, so I used that as my main color. The volleyball sticker is backed on a yellow circle and popped up from the card with foam tape. The green glitter flame was cut with my Cricut. A little bit of string (like the volleyball net) tied on the side finished it up. Thanks, coaches, for a fun season!

Bible Margins Journaling and Video by Karen

Hello!  Karen here today with some Bible Journaling and a video too! 

I'm loving the new Bible Margin Stamps and keep finding new ideas and ways to use them in and out of my Bible. Today I'm sharing a Bible Page using the Bible Margins - Light set. 

I've double stamped and done a bit of fussy cutting to add extra color and pattern - and reflective time - to my Bible journaling. There may be a bit of sparkle, too!

I'll walk you through my entry in this quick video.

For this entry I used these great SRM products:

Thank You Tubes by Angie

Hello SRM friends!! Angie with you today!!
I have a cute idea using SRM's clear tubes.

I used the clear tubes and filled them with wildflower seeds which would make adorable thank you gifts for a garden themed party!! 

I used several SRM stickers to embellish the tubes with and then attached the scalloped circles with twine. They were so quick and easy to make but they turned out so cute!

I hope you give these thank you gifts a try for your next party!

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Today, I'm swinging in to share a fun and simple birthday card with you! 

I started with my cupcakes. Which I simply added my cupcake stickers to a piece of white cardstock and then did come cutting with them. Easy, right?!...Next, I added I piece of foam tape on the back of them and then layered them onto my card base. 

To finish things off, I added a happy birthday sentiment banner using a sticker sentiment and then making a banner out of my cardstock. Then added some twine and sequins. Fun, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happily Ever After by Jenn

Hi friends Jenn here! Love is in the air and wedding bells are chiming so what better time to create a beautiful card dedicated to love.

To begin I cut down a piece of white cardstock sized 8 1/2 by 11 down in half and folded it in half to create a card about the size of 5 1/2 by 4 1/25. My inspiration for this card came from dolies and polka dots. I had this cute black and white polka dot scrapbook paper in my stash, so I cut it down to become my card front. I also pulled an accent turquoise paper to create a focal point and fun pop to the card. I attached the dollie so it hung off the front, then trimmed it and added the leftover to the top to balance the card. I used some pop up tape to attach a large chalkboard label and added a few white sentiments from the Forever sticker sheet. Finally to pull the page together I used a few enamel hearts in white and turquoise.

I love gifting handmade cards, they feel so much more personal and heartfelt. I hope my little post inspires you to pull out your dollies and stickers to create beautiful works of heArt.

Blessed Are Card by Samantha

Hello! Samantha here with you to showcase one of my favorite SRM products: Bible Journaling Stamps. Today I have a blessed are sympathy card to share. 

I used SRM's Blessed Are stamp set to create this card. Sympathy cards are never easy to create, so I always try to keep them clean and simple. 

A simple combination of white and grey give this card a modern look. Grey keeps the card looking a bit softer than black ink.  A bit of embossing at the bottom of the card adds a little extra texture and interest.

 While I chose words for after "Blessed are" that were appropriate for a sympathy card, there are other follow up words in this set that would be great for someone going on a service trip, someone going through a rough time, or someone needing some encouragement. What a versatile stamp set!

Love is Patient by Michele

Good morning! Michele here with a card using the new Bible Margin's Love stamp set
I truly love this verse......there is so much truth to these words. 

I used a stencil to create a soft wood grain texture to the background. 
I stamped directly over it using black ink and my Mini Misti.  I stamped it 3 times to get a crisp, black impression. I added a bit of color using my Copic markers. 

I added a couple of strips of blue card stock and added cream colored twine and a couple of pink posies. Lastly, I added a few pink gems scattered about the card. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Doilies and Gift Bags by Shelly

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Today, I'm sharing some sweet doily gift bags with you!

I started with my doilies and added a fun die cut sentiment piece to each of them. Then I added them to my little bags with some jute twine and a mini staple to adhere it on my bag. After, I added a couple little die cut bees and a little 'I love you' sentiment banner. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Welcome Summer Sign by Samantha

Hello! Samantha here today to celebrate summer with this Welcome Summer sign.

 Usually I'm a matte vinyl girl, but for this project, the glossy vinyl just seemed far more summery. One of my favorite home decor color combos for summer are shades of blue, white, and a rich red. 

When I use multiple colors of vinyl on one project, I cut each color separately and then place the letters one at a time. It seems like a lot of work, but placing the vinyl on this project took less than 15 minutes. 
To get the spacing right, I placed the letters for "Welcome" from left to right, and then the letters for "Summer" from right to left. 

 This Welcome Summer sign is a great way to add a little color (and vinyl fun) to your summer decorating!

Faith Card by Michele

Good morning friends! Michele here with a card using the new Bible Margin's Love stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in gold.  I added a bit of color to the hearts with Copic Markers.  I inked up the panel with a bit of soft blue and pink.  I went a bit glitter crazy and added it to the edges of my sentiment. 

The card itself was a cut from Silhouette.  I added more glitter to it and pink gemstones. I love how soft and feminine it turned out. 

Thank you for spending a bit of time with me today!

Bags & Bookmarks by Giorgia

Hello SRM friends, Giorgia here again and today I have for you an idea for an handmade gift and how to package it.  I love to create handmade bookmarks to give away to friends and family, they are easy to make, cute and always put a smile on who receive them! I used a bookmark template to trace the bookmark shape on heavy white cardstock, then I created a panel with patterned paper. I added SRM Stickers and a sequin, then I laminated the bookmarks with my laminate machine to make them more resistant, I added twine and a charm to decorate.  If you want to see the tutorial on how to make them, you find it here on my blog.

To package them I used SRM bags: they come in many different type (patterned, glassine, kraft, embossed...), sizes and colors, so you can always find the one that suits for your needs!
I chose kraft bags: I closed them with a SRM paper doily and I added a banner made with patterned paper, a butterfly and a sticker. Then I used SRM stitched Stickers to decorate.

I am in love with these bags: they are perfect for packing little gifts!

Until next time,

ciao, Giorgia

Origami Dress Card by Emma

Hello again, SRM friends!  It's Emma here to share a fun and easy card that I made for Mother's Day, or any other special woman in your life.  You can tweak the sentiment and make it into any kind of card you like  So fun!

 SRM has these beautiful patterened paper gift bags, in many different designs.  I thought it would be fun to use the paper bags to make a folded origami dress for my card.

I used this template, and traced my dress outline on one of the lovely pink striped paper bags.  (You can download the PDF template HERE).

Once the design was traced, I then cut the pieces out, and folded the pleats of the dress.Next, for the card background.  I used a white paper doily, and gently highlighted the texture with some pink ink.

To finish the card, I adhered the dress pieces to the doily, and stamped a Mother's Day sentiment.  But you could do a birthday sentiment and that would work too!

So there you have it, a really easy card, and an alternative use for the lovely paper bags available from SRM.  You could even use one of these bags as your envelope!

I hope you've enjoyed my project!  What will you create with SRM's patterned paper bags?
Happy crafting!

Hello Spring by Karen

Hello Karen joining you today.  As I write this blog post, I'm still on the look-out for spring. Winter does not want to let go quite yet. Even though spring may not have arrived on the outside, this brightly painted spring sign certainly warms up the inside and helps me "think spring."

I used a scrap piece of wood, lightly sanded for this sign. I grabbed several of my brightly colored acrylic paints and "messily" painted the board so that all the colors could be seen. After designing and sizing "Hello SPRING" in my electronic die cutting software, I cut the letters in vinyl and applied them to my (dry) sign. 
Next, I layered a cream colored paint on top of my board and the applied vinyl. I like to peel my vinyl off before the paint is quite dry. I love the variation of bright colors revealed underneath the vinyl as I peeled it off.

To finish off my sign I added some spring colored twine and a trio of buttons. Simple eye hooks and more twine made it the perfect sign to hang in a sunny spot in my home. 
Come on, spring!

For this project I used:
wood board | acrylic paints | Oracal 651 vinyl | SRM spring jute twine | buttons | eye hooks

Love is in the Air by Angie

Hello SRM fans! Angie here with you today!
Can you believe that it's May already? Wedding season is definitely upon us. 

Today I'm sharing a card with you that would be perfect for to give for a wedding or wedding shower!

I used the 'Just Believe' stamp set to create the flowers that are on the left side of the word love. The word love is from the 'Big Love' stamp set. I just stamped both of them using black ink on white cardstock and then fussy cut them out.

I used a floral sticker on the bottom circle which is  from the Forever sticker set.

This was a very simple card to make but I think its classy and elegant. 

Thanks for stopping by the SRM blog today!

Happy Layout by Giorgia

Hello SRM friends, Giorgia here.
Today I am here to show you a layout with watercolored, stamped and machine stitched background.  This is me and hubby on our 25th April traditional picnic with friends. To create the background I created a watercolor splatter on white cardstock and then I stamped faux stitching with BIG HAPPY clear stamp . I machine stitched over the stamps to add texture; I love to leave long thread to add extra fun to the project.

I used BIG Happy also to create part of the title.
I stamped it on a cardstock and fussy cut it.  I cut many tiny designs from different SRM Stickers (hearts, butterflies, flowers) and I used them to decorate the background.

I hope you liked my layout and wish you a good day. 

Until next time,
ciao, Giorgia
