Hello, all! So, this is sadly my last blog post on Simply Ann. I will miss all your kind words and comments and questions! Today I’m showing you a fun little tag photo book you can make using the Tags & Trims Cutting Dies. I also use the very sparkly adhesive glitter sheets, which are transparent, so they are fun to use overlapping different elements. I hope you enjoy!

Things I used not in the bundle:
Honeysuckle Paper Pack
Honeysuckle Ribbon Set
Kraft brown cardstock (4 sheets of it can be found in this Classic Cardstock pack)

Thank you all for watching and participating in Simply Ann. I truly appreciate it. I had a lot of fun and I hope I inspired you a little bit to go make something creative! My email is viewable in the below video if you want to contact me for any reason. Thanks again, and never stop crafting!

If you’re looking for more creative inspiration, go to PaperWishes.com and click on Weekly Webisodes or scroll down to the bar that says “Find Your Inspiration” and you’ll find lots of ideas! P.S. Teresa’s Christmas Look Week of Webisodes is airing all this week Monday-Friday, so don’t miss it!

UPDATE: The title of this post was corrected to say “Stamps” instead of “Cutting Dies” and the bundle has just been posted! Thanks for your patience.

Hello, all! I apologize for this being late. My computer died a bittersweet death. I did get a new one, though! Unfortunately I do not have the bundle set up yet, so that is coming soon! So, speaking of being bittersweet, I have a bit of sad news: this is my second to last Simply Ann blog post. I got a full-time job (a non-crafty one) to help support my family and I start this week. Next week I’ll talk more about goodbye, but for now I hope you tune in to this week’s video tutorial and bundle. Enjoy!

Things I used not in the bundle:

Hi, everyone! Today’s card is a sparkly one. First, we have the shimmer of the fabulous Textured Iridescent Sheets. I brushed some shimmery Metallic F/X Mica Powder on over the embossed heart (in 2 colors, over Versamark ink). Then I added a coat of Silver Glitter Dust Spray. Plus, the cute turquoise Sugared Mini Blossoms from Petaloo! Too sweet. This card I imagine for a wedding, anniversary, or even birthday. The inside has a subtle white-on-white look with just a piece of the embossed heart showing, and a good amount of blank space for writing. Happy crafting!

    Items used that are not in the bundle:

Metallic F/X Mica Powder (Glacier Lake)
Metallic F/X Mica Powder (Nouveau Orange)
Silver Glitter Dust Spray
Versamark ink pad
rubber brayer
Trail Blazer Ribbon Set
9 Tiny Tags & Little Labels Cutting Dies
Just A Little Greeting Stamp Set

Today’s card is artsy/inspirational. Fitting, since I’m showcasing some of the products in Hot Off The Press’ Artful Watercolor collection! I really love the Artful Watercolor double-sided paper pack. It’s so artsy and colorful, with some beautiful vintage elements thrown in. The stamps are so versatile, and the Dazzles are neat–they have front and inside greetings, which is great. This card, from the greetings on it, could go a couple of ways. It could just be a generic “inspirational” card. It could be for a graduate, a retiree, or someone leaving for school or travel. I hope you like it!

Hello, everybody! I hope you are all doing fabulously. Today I’m showing a fun 3-dimensional technique that you can use with the super adorable Janie’s Girls Frames Stamps. This sweet stamp set includes 15 stamps, and a lot of versatility. I also use the beautiful burlap blossoms in the vibrant shade of fuchsia. They come on self-adhesive foam, but if they’re a little wiggly you can always adhere them with a stronger adhesive (I used Tacky Glue). This card is meant to put a smile on someone’s face. Brighten someone’s day with this sweet and simple look!

Not in the bundle:
Unforgettable Double-Sided Paper Pack

Hello there! Today’s card is an adventure/bon voyage/graduation card! The neat thing about this triple step card is that you can use them horizontal or vertical, and if you reverse the folds, you can even switch the side that the steps are on. On this card I used the Vacation Small Stamp and the Compass Small Stamp with copper embossing powder to complement the brown cardstock and Trail Blazer papers. I hope you all enjoy this nature-themed card!

Items I used that are not in the bundle:

Metallic Copper Super Fine Embossing Powder

Hey Everybody! I hope you enjoy this fun and funky Butterfly Inside/Out Card! This week’s bundle is AWESOME. You do not want to miss this deal. First of all, you get 3 packs of Inside/Out Cards: Butterfly, Flower, and Label. Then, you get the matching Inside/Out 4-pack (4 BIG sheets!) of Dazzles (which you can use on the Inside/Out Cards but also on pretty much any project!) And finally, 2 sheets of Double-Stick Dazzles: Fancy Butterflies and Fancy Flowers. I didn’t have much room to showcase the double-stick (I did the “Hello” on the card inside), but these are so fun to work with, and sooo versatile. If you have any glitter, metal flakes, Perfect Pearls, Metallic F/X powder, etc, these are the thing for you! Anything that sticks to it can be used, even chalk. Well, enough talking. Enjoy the video!
