I’m having a lot of fun with the Tutti Frutti product suite. Like you saw in Challenge #34, this design is perfect for anyone! The coordinating mini punch pack keeps fussy-cutting out of the equation, so projects like this one can come together in no time!

Fruitful Birthday

I opted for the bottom row – Green, Heart & Ribbon. You can roll over the numbers on the image below to see and link to products used. A full product listing is available at the end of the post.

I really love this project because it works for anyone – masculine, kids, young, old… it’s really a universal design. Even though there’s ribbon and sequins, it’s not frilly – just full of texture!

Product Spotlight: Narrow Notecards

Looking for a fun, fresh notecard size to accompany gifts and treats, or just great on their own? It’s time to try narrow notecards!

I’ve always enjoyed the 3x3 “love note” format for all sorts of card designs. They’re just the perfect size to accompany gifts, or to hide in someone’s lunch, or pocket to discover later! That’s why I was excited to see this new size in the Occasions Catalog. They’re hiding out on the bottom of page 19 – the Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes.

Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (145583), pkg of 20 – $8.00

Just like our regular Notecards & Envelopes, they come in a package of 20. The envelopes are so cute too! They open on the short end — so trendy!

Today’s design was inspired by a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Team O is back with some fantastic inspiration! Let’s take a look at the board and my design. I’m still working with the Painted With Love product suite, and went for the bottom row: Sparkle, Love, Free. I played on “free” with a card “free from sentiment”! Because it’s sans-words, this notecard is perfect for Valentine’s Day, or any day! And, at such a small size, it comes together in a jiffy!

2 Minutes to Finish (2M2F) – Sure Do Love You

Yea!!! Tic Tac Toe Challenge is back! Team O is up and we’ve got a fun board for you this week – hosted by… ME!

I’m working on a whole slew of projects using the new Sure Do Love You product suite. I’m excited to say that I’m going to have project tutorials, videos, and even supply kits available very soon for you! Be sure to check in after the video to see how you can start earning Pixel Points to get them for free!

Today’s project is inspired by the newest Tic Tac Toe Challenge board. This week’s board is hosted by me! I always have to laugh when my board comes up because I always forget what I put on the board to begin with. Sometimes the struggle is real… Let’s take a look at the board!

Play along at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Inspiring you 8-ways each week! Find us @tttchallenge or tictactoechallenge.com. New challenges every Thursday!

Honestly, I was elbow-deep in the Sure Do Love You suite when I switched gears to work on a few challenge designs. I stared, and stared, and stared at the choices in front of me. Looking at all of the suite products, I knew I’d be able to get them to fit with this board. I finally came up with a quick and simple 2 Minutes to Finish design using the far right column – Floral, No Sentiment, Purple:

For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#TTTC030). Featuring: Painted With Love Specialty DSP, Painted Love Vinyl Stickers. For more details including a video tutorial, click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #hearts #handstamped

With the notecard pack, a few strips of the DSP and coordinating Cardstock pack, and the vinyl stickers, you could have a pile of these whipped up in 30 minutes – easy! Here’s how easy it is…

How about that? I know that sometimes people get hung up on wanting to make an identical stack, but that’s not always necessary! Don’t feel like you need to have identical cards. If you use a stack of these for coworkers or friends, it’s fun to see how they compare each other’s designs and point out things they like about each. That’s the beauty of having all the coordinating designs!

Just use the same basic layout and switch it up with different strips of DSP, and vinyl stickers. There’s 20 total border strips of stickers and 20 notecards in a pack – a match made in heaven! Like I showed in the video, you can go horizontal or vertical – it works both ways!

Quickspiration: Coffee Café

Here’s another project with just a few words, but a lot of WOW — It’s time for another Quickspiration!

This week’s Quickspiration isn’t because I’ve been crafting a lot. Actually, maybe it is! I have been creating a lot – because I just finished sending out our holiday cards (60 to family/friends and 60 to customers!). Yowza! But, I also had a card to put together for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. It’s our last challenge for the year, and we hope you play along!

I was glad that the design came together quickly – and it would be quite simple for you to recreate. If you want to make it even easier, skip the coloring on the cup.
