Hello, friends -- Today I have a fun recipe card to share with you (I know, it's been a while since I shared a recipe!), made with this darling new Pink Ink Baking Day stamp! (All bold products are linked below in the supply section): I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a large 5" x 7" recipe card I created: Free PDF Download can be found here: Download 4-Color Printed Recipe Cards 5x7_Sharon_Harnist -- You can probably size this down to 4x6 or 3x5 when printing it, if you prefer a smaller size. I like to use photo albums to house/store my recipe cards -- they are protective and a relatively cost efficient way to store them, thus, the photo-sized custom recipe cards! The card was printed onto Copic-friendly Neenah Solar White cardstock and the image colored with these Copic markers: Wouldn't this make a great gift set of blank recipe cards for a baking enthusiast friend? I love this sweet retro image! Thanks so much for joining me today! Pink Ink Wood Mount Stamp, Baking Day Fiskars SureCut Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer (12") Memento Ink Pad, Tuxedo Black Neenah Cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White,... Continue reading

You may be wondering what the word "Kirarina" in my post title means ... Let me introduce you to one of my favorite new products from Imagination International Inc, the Copic marker distributor for North America! You can shop the Kirarina online store HERE and you can find out more about each of the products in the Kirarina line HERE but here is a brief overview of each: 2win – Water based/scented. Each marker is dual-tipped and features a light and dark shade of each color as well as both chisel and fine tips. Perfect for doodling. Works best on regular copy paper or stationery. 2win Oil based – Double-ended/fine and round nib markers featuring two colors on one pen; for use on any surface. WiNK – Multi-purpose/metallic pen with shimmery specks of glass; works on a variety of surfaces and looks great on light and dark surfaces. Cute – 3D, scented puff paint. Hand washable after 72-hour dry time. Can be used on paper crafts to add a bit of dimension to projects. Today I am using the WiNK pen/marker and these are a few more of their attributes: Kirarina WiNK is a multi-purpose pen that is compatible with... Continue reading

Hello and happy Friday! My family loves tropical island/beach destination vacations and last month we had the opportunity to visit a few. Here is one of my favorite photos from that trip, on this fun, colorful flip flop 11" x 8.50" page: And anyone who knows me well knows I LOVE my flip flops and wear them everywhere, any time ... as long as it is above about 50 degrees! Thank goodness I live in a relatively warm climate with that type of weather about 9+ months out of the year! :) So it's no wonder I HAD to have this fabulous, huge new Taylored Expressions Flip Flop Garland die set which has four different sizes of flip flops! A few quick page details to go along with those fabulous flip flops: Trendy gold metallic cardstock die cut words, with Gold Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen accents and journaling: GIVEAWAY You can find full details about this page today over on the Taylored Expressions blog, along with a giveaway of the Flip Flop Garland die set I used AND a copy of the newest issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine!!

Hello, friends! As summer is winding down, with its abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, I thought this would make a fun end-of-summer birthday card! To create the quilt background for this card, I used a fabulous blank X-Press It Stencil Sheet from Imagination International Inc (aka the Copic distributor for North America and Canada) die cut with a pretty Circles Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions that (to me) resembles a quilt! (All bold products are linked below in the supply section). I thought the quilt theme would fit nicely with the cute county fair canning-inspired Blue Ribbon Birthday stamp from Pink Ink Stamps: You can find these stencil sheets in the X-Press It Online Store at the Copic website. The material is a thick low tack vinyl, which removes from your project/paper easily and without leaving any residue behind. It can be used over and over again ... I store mine in the storage pocket with the die I've used, so it's handy for the next time I may need it! Here are the steps to create this card: 1. Die cut the Stencil Sheet with the cutting plate die. You'll probably want to use a metal adapter plate... Continue reading
