Day Dreaming Project!


Good Morning Dreamers! Pammie Kay here..back from vacation in Sunny Florida! It was a wonderful time with great friends. We had not been together since 2019, so it was a well deserved trip.

I am hopping today with my fellow demonstrators from around the globe at Ink Stamp Share. I love to do blog hops because it gives you, my readers, so many examples of the same theme. Today we are doing 3D projects. I am sure that most of them will be great for the upcoming gift giving season!  Mark this hop for later use.

I learned to make this Pinwheel Tower at one of my All Day Crops from my cousin Linda. She is also a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I love that it is three dimensional,  but folds flat to mail. I am going to try to explain how I did it. But there are TONS of videos that may explain it better.  Let's have a try!        (*I made mine larger to accommodate my salt shaker that i put my pinwheels into. These instructions are for this larger size!)

  • Cut cardstock  6 1/2' x 4 1/4"   Score at 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 6"
  • Fold and burnish each score line. Put Tear and Tape on the 1/2" piece, and fold opposite end down to make the square peg for center.
  • Cut 4 pieces of  cardstock 2 3/4" x 4 1/4". 
  • Decorate as you wish. My mats were cut at 2 1/2' x 4". The side pieces were cut 1" x 4". 
  • Glue to sides of tower. 
  • I used 1 1/2" squares to make my pinwheels and taped them to some beading wire. I poked them into the lid of a salt shaker and twisted the stems together to get the to stand where I wanted them to be!

I used the newest Hostess DSP pack for my card. There are so many wonderful patterns in it. Ask me how you can get yours in the comments!

It is a simple process. The only thinking part of it was to put the correct "side pieces" on the back of the correct flap!  I MAY have had to redo one!  I suggest not using as many popped up pieces as it does not fold flat! I am not mailing mine so it isn't a problem. The pinwheels were added to just give it a touch of whimsey, but are not necessary if you just want the card. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. If so, please leave a comment below. Now it is time to hop to the next blog for more great inspiration.  

I'm Dreamin' of more crafty times with you all....You keep Dreamin' too!

I've been Framed!


Welcome back Dreamers! Today's card is continuing my masculine theme, that started this week. The men in our lives are so often ignored when it comes to card making. So, for at least a week...I am honoring the guys!  My father has been gone since 1977, so I have not done enough Father's day cards over the years. BUT this is not one either. Sometimes they have things going on and need to know that "everything will be ok".

    I am hopping with my friends at Crafty Collaboration and our theme for today is frames. I admit it was a bit tougher for me for some reason. I thought for awhile and finally hit on an idea. I hope you like it.
I have used the die cuts from the "He's The Man" Suite, from the All Occasion Catalog. Yes! I said die cuts!!! Stampin' Up! has added 2 identical sheets of die cuts to the DSP pack. They are full color awesomeness! I love that these can go on a card or would make a fabulous addition to a scrapbook page or a mini album!
The DSP I used came from the Lovely in Linen pack.  I used a sentiment inside that is from the Charming Sentiments Bundle. The Stylish Shapes Dies made making the emblem in the middle so much easier.  A little bit of Balmy Blue, Basic White and Night of Navy cardstock, make up the embellishment. 
    I love how it turned out, don't you? 

Next time you are stumped for an idea, remember to use some frames. 
 Now, be sure to hop to the next blog and see what they have created for us!

A little Peace

 Good morning Dreamers!  This post will be a little different than normal. Not about scrapbooking or card making. There are some things on my heart that I need to share. I am not doing this to offend anyone. If I do, I am sorry.

   Last week there was a mass shooting in Tulsa, 20 miles from home. It was senseless, as most of them are. It jarred  my spirit a bit. I had been in that office several times with my friend Patty. I t was so clean and the ladies out front always greeted her like an old friend. I am saddened like the rest of the community and a little on edge. I felt a bit uneasy when I went out the next few days.

   Sunday, my Pastor talked about it. As Lutherans, we celebrate Pentecost. It is kind of a birthday celebration for the beginning of the new Church year. The Gospel reading was from John 14:1-29. It is about Jesus telling His disciple, yet again, that He is going to be with the Father. 

There is a section where Jesus says "Peace I Leave (vs 27). As a high schooler, I worked at a church camp on the Illinois River her in Oklahoma. Someone had set this verse to music, and the campers HAD TO sing it at every Friday night session. It became a sad, syrupy song that made them cry because it was their last night together. Saturday they would return to their lives at home with family. 

   I admit, it makes me a little sad still. Best times of my life. But this time, I heard the words so differently. So calming. So hopeful. So peaceful. 

    I will let you come to your own conclusions as to what it means to you. The words "I do not give to you as the world gives", stuck out from the rest. My Lord promises ME that His peace will pass all understanding. And it does. I don't have to be afraid of what this world can and will throw at me or my loved ones. 

Blessed Peace my friends.

I'm Dreamin' of a place where fear doesn't exist...You keep Dreamin' too!

p.s.  If you don't know Jesus as your personal Savior and would like to know more, contact me or one of your local houses of worship. God Bless.
