Stamp Review Crew | Tabs for Everything

Hello Monday! It’s amazing how quickly each one rolls around, but boy am I always glad to be here to see another week start.

Thanks for stopping by today – I’m hopping with the gorgeous Stamp Review Crew.  A huge welcome to Jay Soriano who joins the Crew this month.  You may have already hopped over from Jay – isn’t his work amazing???

Today’s stamp set of choice is the Tabs for Everything stamp set and coordinating Circle Tab Punch.

There’s lots of cool things you can do with this bundle from pimping your planner, 3D items and fancy cards & scrapbook pages.  I used it last year to create tabs for my Annual Catalogue – see that here.

I love all the little cute sentiments and teeny tiny stamps!  There’s 53 stamps in all – that’s a lot of stamping options!!!

Sometimes my creative journey starts in one place and ends up in a totally different place.  Skip through to the photos if you don’t need this little bit of crazy back story!!!

I started thinking about how great this stamp set is for people who love their planners (….. not me, I’m a digital girl as much as I love the idea of a planner).

Which then lead me to using the stamps on pages with lines…… which made me think of the lined cards in the Memories & More Card Kits that I usually struggle to use on traditional greeting cards – because of the lines or grids.

I often have a stash of those left in any card kit I buy.  But they were totally perfect for this theme, so I set about making postcard (no fold) style cards using a 4″x6″ Memories & More card, a 3″x4″ Memories & More card and coordinating stamps from the Tabs for Everything stamp set.

What a hoot!  My plan for these cards is to write the message on the front and post in an envelope, but you could also write on the back if you prefered.

Here are the 5 designs in more detail….

Colour INKspiration #26

It’s Colour Day!!!  I’m hopping today with the Colour INKspiration Crew and these amazing colours!

No automatic alt text available.

All those beautiful blue/greens together…….. beaches, peacocks, flowers, mermaids, butterflies……

And then there’s me…..

My frequent use of challenge colours for baby cards has not escaped my attention!

This is my creation using those gorgeous colours….

I initially had a moment of ‘OMG’ what DSP do I have in these colours.  We have lots of lovely DSP but since they removed the paper stacks, the single colour choices are limited.

But then inspiration hit and I knew some of these colours were in our Memories & More kits.  These kits have to be one of the best kept secrets of every catalogue.  Packed with pretty patterns & fun designs, they add a great fresh element for card makers & memory keepers.

The Sahara Sand designs can be found in the Bundle of Love card pack and the Emerald Envy design is from the Perfect Days card pack.

Add in Tranquil Tide & Bermuda Bay cardstock and this colour combination is complete!

Without it being a conscious choice, this card it totally created from products you’ll find in the Annual Catalogue.  I know it’s been sobbing quietly in the background while I’ve been having fun with all the new Occasions Catalogue products.  Dust off AC!  It’s your time to shine!!!
