a lovely saturday

Happy Saturday.

I can't believe it is almost the END of March already. 
I am sharing my final card using the amazing
PMB Sunday Afternoon kit.

Bicycles are a very hot trend right now.  And this beauty of a bike was hidden in the lovely pack of papers by Webster's Pages.  Isn't it sweet and it matches the lace trim and Bazzill Swiss Dots just perfectly. 

All the supplies are included
in this month's Sunday Afternoon Fresh Baked Kit.

Sneak Peek

shabby chic take on a *bright* idea
Here's just a tiny snippet of a card I made with the upcoming April Fresh Baked Kit...I won't tell you the kit's name because that might give too much away.  Just know that we're partnering in April with a VERY popular little company we are very *fawned* of.

I borrowed the hexagon theme from my Blogland buddy, Wanda Guess.  I simply adore her work!

We've got just a few more days of March left...and just a few Sunday Afternoon kits left, too!  And, from today through March 31, we're slipping in some extra goodies into each Sunday Afternoon kit purchased!  Bonus time!!

Hey ya'll!  Just a quick share today -- I made this card with ingredients from the Sunday Afternoon Fresh Baked Kit available HERE.  I love the texture of the Swiss Dot cardstock...and that Picnic Ruffle is SO fun to play with!

It's just a little something I whipped up to thank my mom for a special birthday new Cameo!  Like I mentioned earlier, I'm a {NEW} big fan of the Silhouette Cameo and this was my first project using a tag die cut that came with the machine.  I mentioned earlier an online class for Cameo newbies -- I signed up for it, but it doesn't start until April 2nd!  So, I'm looking forward to taking it during Spring Break.  The Cameo is so much fun to use; it makes creating cuts for classes and kits a dream!  HINT: you'll see what I'm talking about in our April kit...sneak peeks coming soon!

Sunday Afternoon Chalkboard

Hi friends! It's Ashley here to share a project with you today. I decided to make a chalkboard using elements from the Sunday Afternoon Kit. I have used this kit SO much this month and have TONS left.

I picked up the chalkboard at my local craft store. I punched out squares from a bunch of the papers, some from the scraps I had from making all my cards this month and some from full sheets. I mod podged them onto the chalkboard and then trimmed off the excess, topping with another layer of mod podge. The bottle cap is from the kit. I die cut a circle from one of the papers and then added this little sticker picture of my kids that came free with my son's school pictures. I finished with some gems.
Here's a close up of the bottle cap frame I made.
Have a great day, everyone!

Pillow Box Tutorial

Happy Monday!!!! 
It's Stephanie here to share a quick and easy tutorial on how I decorated
this Pillow box/gift box.
I think it's always fun to wrap special gifts up all nice and pretty especially for that someone special!!!!

 When I do a project like this always like to put together my supplies just so I know what I have and  it makes the creating process that much easier and quicker!!!
All supplies are for the Sunday Afternoon kit  except for the pillow Box which I purchased on an Etsy shop but you could probably get these at you local craft store or even find a template online that you could print out and cut!!
 I want to start my box by creating a band to go around it this first piece I cut 2inches thick and the length is 6 inches.  i attached the lace ribbon with my tiny attacher just because this ribbon has is stretchy and I wanted it to stay good with out coming apart from the band.
 I cut another piece of pattern paper at 1 inch
 and I adhered it over the lace ribbon
 Next you want to use some good adhesive to adhere the band around the box
Last step is to decorate your box and add some finishing touches I die cut a tag and stamped my sentiment added some gems and tied it onto the box with some twine and you are finished!!!
This little box would be great for a gift card or some jewelry or even candies whatever you decide to put in it it's a great little gift box!!!

Hope you enjoyed todays project!!!

The Sky is the Limit

Hi PMB fans!  It's Ryann here for another Sunday Afternoon post, on a Sunday!  My card is really simple and fast and would be easy to mass produce for a card set.  There are a few pieces in the Webster's Pages Sunday Picnic 6x6 pad that are just too pretty or cute to cut up.  This is one of them.  So instead of cutting it up, I'm using it the main focus of my card.

The little tags are from another sheet of paper and really ties in the kite theme of my card.  You can usually find smaller themed pieces among the patterned paper pads, both in this months kit and in past kits.  Think of all those large floral or swirly patterns that are hard to use on their own.  Why not cut them out and use as a design element on your card!  This is my tip and challenge for you!

All ingredients except the ink are from the Sunday Afternoon kit.  You can pick yours up HERE.

This is the last Sunday post for March's kit.  Next Sunday we'll be into April and a brand new kit.  Be sure to come back around, you surely don't want to miss it!  :)

a bee's knees cutie

Hi all...

Lisa Arana here.

I think this is my FAVORITE PMB card yet.
Is that bad to say?

But really it is... I simply adore it.

There are lots of little treasures in the
PMB Sunday Afternoon kit.
Buttons, a sweet bird charm, rhinestones, jute string, trim and this
Maya Road bottle cap.

It is super fab to layer papers and embellies in.  I had to use Savannah's little bee idea from one of the patterned papers in the Webster's Pages paper pack.  It is just perfect for the sentiment in the Sweet Stamp Shop set.

I die cut some of that beautiful teal paper with a Spellbinder die.  Can you believe this is the first time I have used it?  Such a shame.  Won't make that mistake again.  And also the ribbon banner with the sentiment is a die from Spellbinders as well.

All the supplies are included
in this month's Sunday Afternoon Fresh Baked Kit.

a Spring/Summer card by Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here to share two Paper Made Bakery  kit cards.

Here is a picture of the PMB kit, Sunday Afternoon-- one of my favs! I love all the pieces in it! The papers...the ribbon...the stamps (an exclusive Sweet Stamp Shop set for this month's kitSunday Afternoon)! LOVE LOVE LOVE it all!!  

I went through the paper pad in this kit and found several sheets that I had not cut! I love how this  card turned out. 
Notice the super cute cloud in the upper right corner. When looking through my kit papers, I noticed this cloud as part of a design. I cut it out and embossed the edges to help it stand out on my card. LOVE it! 
That's it for me today. Be sure to check out the PMB on Facebook {HERE}. And check out PMB on their Twitter page!! Be sure to follow them there too! Plus, HERE is a link to past kits that are on sale!! LOVE a good deal:) 

And if you are in the San Diego area--there are classes available at the PMB!! Check out the schedule HERE. You don't want to miss out on this super cute kit or amazing classes!

Junk-tique Fan?

My Favorite Find
Do you like cool, old stuff?  Ever rooted around a flea market and discovered that dusty old vanity table, just like your grandma had, then took it home, painted it creamy pink and fell in love?  If you dig vintage finds, hunting through antique shops (not the hoity-toity kind, but the fun and hip ones), and picking through tag sales, you're going to thoroughly enjoy this new website I found!

Serena Thompson, of Farms Chicks fame, has developed a website called My Favorite Find.  It's an online community where folks share, well, their favorite find, and where you can also find super fun and trendy events and shoppes all over the country (and world)!  Are you having an estate sale?  Want peeps from far and wide to know about it?  My Favorite Find is the place for that, too!  This is a great concept -- find out how Serena came up with the idea here.

Just thought I'd share one of my own "favorite finds" for this week...

Change it Up!

The Reveal
Hello PMB friends, this is Michelle here today with a card to share. I was thinking of ways to get the most use out of my Sweet Stamp Shop stamp set, and I thought of playing with directionality. If the direction of a stamp can be changed, then it is like having double the stamps!
U Be U card

The Details
1. Cut a piece of acetate to the size of your card. If you don't have acetate, there is a piece that comes with your stamp set. 
2. Stamp your image on the acetate using a solvent ink. Since the acetate is transparent, you can draw guidelines on a scratch piece of paper and place it underneath for more accuracy when stamping.

3. If you want to change the direction of a stamp, flip the acetate over and stamp on the reverse side. Since it is transparent, you'll be able to see the image. I have two rows of bicycles facing right and one row facing left. If I had stamped on paper, I would only get the bicycles facing in one direction. You can make them look like they are crashing into each other if you want to. 

4. Place the stamped acetate on top of your card base and stitch in place. 
5. Layer the sentiment on top of the acetate. 
6. To get even more use out of my stamp set, I made up my own sentiment using parts of the existing sentiment. I colored in only the letters I needed instead of inking the entire sentiment. 

Have fun with your stamps and make them work for you. There is so much versatility in a Sunday Afternoon kit, the sky's the limit. 
Thanks for stoppin' by.

Lovely Kite

Hi friends! This is Ashley to share a card with you today. I'm really enjoying the Sunday Afternoon Kit! Have you purchased yours yet? I think there's a couple left. Hurry, hurry!

Here's the card I made for today. I found this rainbow paper in the paper pack and I'm in LOVE! A lovely textured rainbow in soft colors? Swoon! I wanted to make a card that highlighted this pretty paper but wasn't too plain. I stamped and paper pieced the kite, added the sentiment, a little trim, and some of the bling. Simple, but not TOO simple I think.
Have a fabulous day, friends!

A Day Without Laughter

Happy Monday it's Stephanie here 
to share another Sunday Afternoon card with ya!!! Seriously how gorgeous is this paper I have a thing for pretty papers and you get plenty of them in this month's Sunday Afternoon kit!! I know I did another tag on my card but they make such great focal points on a card it is my new favorite element to add to my cards and I just love that sweet sentiment.  To finish off my card i added some sweet lace and buttons I also did a little inking around the edges of my card and tag it always adds such a nice soft touch.

PMB Pinturtles
Just a quick's kind of like that game you played when you were a kid...Telephone?  Ryann found the recipe for Rolo-pretzel-Turtles on Pinterest and served them at a get-together earlier this month.  I thought they were so yummy that I wanted to make them for my gals in class today.  So, I checked out Pinterest for the recipe -- none made with almonds (at least on my cursory glance).  So, I made them like Ryann, with natural almonds on top instead of the classic pecan, and took a couple photos so I could Pin It on my Sweet Tooth Recipe board on Pinterest.  

Squishy, sweet and delicious
Easy-schmeasy to make: Place square/grid shaped pretzels, with an unwrapped Rolo on top, onto parchment-lined baking sheet and heat in 350 degree oven for 3-5 minutes -- just so they're soft and squishy, but not totally melted.  Remove from oven and gingerly smoosh a natural almond onto the top of each.  Place onto serving plate and share with your crafty friends!  Mmmmm

So, here is my very first Pin!  And for those of you following Paper Made Bakery on Pinterest, let's get pinning!  Happy Sunday Afternoon, ya'll!

Lovely Day For...

Hello and happy Sunday PMB peeps!  Ryann here with another Sunday Afternoon creation! We're in the middle of a rainy weekend here in PMB-land (aka San Diego) but I have a bright and sunny card despite our gray skies!

After stamping the hot air balloons onto my card base, I also stamped them onto the Webster's Pages patterned paper, cut them out and then adhered them onto my card (a la paper piecing).  I thought it would be cute to draw in a couple birds flying among the balloons, so I did!  A scrap piece of patterned paper along the bottom to help break up the turquoise and you're done!  I left the inside of the card blank but you could easily finish off the sentiment with "a birthday" or "a celebration".  Lots of options!!  :)

Everything used to make my card can be found in March's Fresh Baked kit, Sunday Afternoon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we'll see you again tomorrow - hopefully with some drier weather!

Happy Saturday!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

Lisa Arana here. 
I must confess, I don't regularly create
 St. Patrick's Day cards.
So, I plum forgot about the holiday today. 

Instead, I have a LOVE card

The cardstock colors in the
PMB Sunday Afternoon kit
are so fresh and vibrant. 
I truly adore them.   

The focus of this card is the amazing
Sweet Stamp Shop Old Fashioned Afternoon stamp set.
I stamped the key multiple times in charcoal grey
and then used the matching saying,
"the key to my heart."

I color blocked the pretty cardstock behind and
added a sweet little heart to finish it off.

All the supplies are included
in this month's Sunday Afternoon Fresh Baked Kit.  

Thanks for stopping by!
