Baseball is Life Shaker Tag by Lorena


Hello, SRM friends! It's Lorena with you today and I'm excited to be sharing a fun project for the sports lovers in your life. The new Sports Take 2 stickers are the star of the game today!

SRM Stickers Blog - Baseball is Life Shaker Tag by Lorena - #tag #shaker #sports #baseball #twine #stickers

I started die cutting two round tags from cardstock and acetate. Second, I die cut a circle from the center of one the cardstock tags and adhered the acetate behind it to make the window.

On the base of the tag (which once everything is assembled will be the "inside" of the shaker area) I adhered one of the big ball images from Take 2 Stickers by the Dozen / Baseball. To fill the shaker, I die cut some cardstock sequins and stars, but the fun part was adding lots of tiny baseball balls to the mix!

SRM Stickers Blog - Baseball is Life Shaker Tag by Lorena - #tag #shaker #sports #baseball #twine #stickers

I simply adhered one of the border stickers from the Take 2 Stickers by the Dozen / Baseball to a piece of white cardstock and punched them with a 1/2 inch punch.

Once the shaker mix was ready, I adhered the two tags (the base one and the acetate one) together with foam tape, leaving a small gap to pour the mix inside.

The final touches were adding the "Baseball is life" sentiment, which I put together using two different border stickers and of course some baker's Twinery Twine. I went with red and black, but grey would look nice too.


I hope you like this idea! It can be used for many different sports just by changing the color combo and using the right stickers: SRM has soccervolleyball and basketball too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Chalkboard Teacher Thank You Card by Christine


Teacher Appreciation Day is coming up soon! 
May 5th is the day set aside to make sure and thank our teachers!  Now is the time to get working on those special cards for those people who take special care of your kiddos and SRM has all that you need to make teacher cards! Christine joining you today to share one of my teacher cards!


SRM Stickers Blog - Chalkboard Teacher Thank You Card by Christine - #card #teacher #thankyou #stickers #chalkboardmarker #Blackboard #DIY

The new Chalkboard Marker makes it easy to make a personalized card! After cutting my card to be shaped like a chalkboard easel, I used the Easy Chalkboard Marker to create my own chalkboard. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Chalkboard Teacher Thank You Card by Christine - #card #teacher #thankyou #stickers #chalkboardmarker #Blackboard #DIY

I added some Abc's etc with the Bistro White Fine Tip Chalk Marker.
A "Thanks" from the Sentiment: Thank You stickers works perfectly for adding the thank you but with a different medium.  And of course what teacher card would be finished without an apple on it - the one from Quick Cards/Teacher is perfect!

Easy as ABC.. Easy as 123!  Get yourself some of these amazing markers and have yourself some fun making your own Chalkboard projects!

Personalized Wine Glasses by Cathy A.


Hello!  Cathy A here today with a fun idea for personalization with chalkboard markers.  

Have you ever been to a party and put your glass down only to come back and not know which one is yours? Well I have the solution and it is so quick and easy and because you write the names with a chalk marker you can wipe it off and re-use it.

SRM Stickers Blog - Personalized Wine Glasses by Cathy A. - #easychalkboardmarker #chalkboard #markers #white #flourencent #personization #DIY

Using some small Image Craft Metal Circle disks, I cover the rough side with SRM's new EASY Chalkboard Marker.  Give it a couple of coats and let it dry completely between layers.  Once dry, put a layer of white chalkboard over the disk using the 6mm white Bistro marker and let it dry.  Once dry, wipe clean with a damp cloth.  Now you have a permanent blackboard on your disks which you can change when you want to add them to wine glasses for new guests. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Personalized Wine Glasses by Cathy A. - #easychalkboardmarker #chalkboard #markers #white #flourencent #personization #DIY

Now use your florescent  and white fine tip markers to add the names of the people of the disks.  Add a pattern around the edge of the disk to embellish. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Personalized Wine Glasses by Cathy A. - #easychalkboardmarker #chalkboard #markers #white #flourencent #personization #DIY

If you make a mistake or want to change the name, simply wipe the blackboard disk with a damp cloth. Then put the new name onto the disk.

SRM Stickers Blog - Personalized Wine Glasses by Cathy A. - #easychalkboardmarker #chalkboard #markers #white #flourencent #personization #DIY

FYI...To attach the names to the stems of the glasses, use jump rings and a wire spring.  Be sure to remove the backing of the other side of the disk.  

How fun to have a set of these wine glass markers ready for any festive occasion.  Just add the names of your guests and you are good to go!

Sweet Lemonade by Michele


Good morning! Michele here with a bit of "sweet" packaging to share with you! (Pun definitely intended!)  With the school year fast approaching, I am constantly looking for cute ways to present gifts to my daughter's teachers, aids, therapists, and bus drivers. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Sweet Lemonade by Michele - #pillowbox #kraft #gift #clearstamps #janesdoodles #lifeisgood #DIY

I decorated the pillow box with the cutest set from Jane's Doodles called Life is Good.  It was colored with Copic markers and then cut out.  I did the same thing with the jar and then added a bit of ribbon, a posy, and a sentiment that had been stamped on hot pink vellum.

SRM Stickers Blog - Sweet Lemonade by Michele - #pillowbox #kraft #gift #clearstamps #janesdoodles #lifeisgood #DIY

The lemons were given a wee bit more attention after they were cut out.  I added glossy accents and glittered only the rind for a bit of dimension and sparkle. Now all that's left to do, is tuck a gift card and a little note inside.

Baby News Card Set by Shery


Hey there, SRM fans! Shery here today sharing a set of cards using chalk markers! These chalk markers are incredibly fun and easy to use for all sorts of projects. They go so well with SRM stickers, particularly the We've Got Your Border stickers and my all-time fave, Sticker Stitches.

SRM Stickers Blog - Baby News Card Set by Shery - #cards #announcements #baby #chalkboard #markers #borders #stickers

As my husband and I will be welcoming our first child in August, baby announcement cards are just some of the things I started working on as soon as the pesky morning sickness started to become a thing of the past and I've got a lot more energy. I needed to make these cards to send out to family, relatives, and friends here and abroad, and here are just 6 (of many!) I've done.

SRM Stickers Blog - Baby News Card Set by Shery - #cards #announcements #baby #chalkboard #markers #borders #stickers

To start, I stamped the rocking horse, teddy bear, and baby carriage that I'd originally illustrated and turned into stamps in various Hero Arts inks. Since we don't know yet if we're having a boy or a girl, I went with ink colors that would work regardless of our baby's gender.

SRM Stickers Blog - Baby News Card Set by Shery - #cards #announcements #baby #chalkboard #markers #borders #stickers

I covered white card stock with the Easy Chalkboard Marker and once it was dry, I cut it in several small pieces. I doodled the frame/border using the Bistro Chalk White Marker and then used the Bistro Chalk Marker Fluorescent markers to write different baby messages.

SRM Stickers Blog - Baby News Card Set by Shery - #cards #announcements #baby #chalkboard #markers #borders #stickers

I used Black Sticker Stitches on the cards, as well as 3 We've Got Your Border stickers: Baby GirlBaby Boy, and Pastel.

SRM Stickers Blog - Baby News Card Set by Shery - #cards #announcements #baby #chalkboard #markers #borders #stickers

Hope you enjoyed my project, and thanks for letting me share! :o)  Got to get back to making more announcements.  I'm having so much fun!

Elephants Love to Celebrate card by Lorena


Hello there, SRM friends! Lorena here. Have you noticed that elephant stamps are trending lately? They're so cute and perfect for different occasions! For baby, of course, but also for wishing a happy birthday, or for a congratulations card. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Elephants Love to Celebrate card by Lorena - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #twine #clearstamps #janesdoodles

Today, I am sharing a celebratory card with the lovely elephant from the Baby Jungle stamp set.  Love all the darling images from which to choose and also the dot border!

SRM Stickers Blog - Elephants Love to Celebrate card by Lorena - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #twine #clearstamps #janesdoodles

I made a shaped card by die cutting twice a huge tag die from my stash and adhering it together to form the card base. Second, I stamped a green ground for the elephant to stand on, using the polka dot strip from the Doodle Flowers stamp set. I love how cute those polka dots are, and how easy is to stamp a whole background with them in just seconds!  Once I had the ground, I added the sky using watercolors. Nothing fancy here, just brushed some blue watercolor on the card :)

SRM Stickers Blog - Elephants Love to Celebrate card by Lorena - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #twine #clearstamps #janesdoodles

The elephant was paper pieced and then accented a bit with a marker. I cut my own speech bubble using a sticker from Sentiment/Thinking of You and layering it on cardstock. Every elephant needs a speech bubble, right? As one last touch, I wanted to make the sentiment pop. It is originally an outlined font, so I filled in the letters with a black alcohol marker.

SRM Stickers Blog - Elephants Love to Celebrate card by Lorena - #card #thinkingofyou #stickers #twine #clearstamps #janesdoodles

Of course, the card wouldn't be finished without a touch of baker's twine. I used the Marigold twine here. I also threw in a few die cut stars to increase the celebratory feeling. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Card by Michele


Hello there! Michele here with a fun little card to brighten someone's day!
I used this adorable new stamp set by Jane's Doodles called, Garden Friends. 


 The little bird was colored with Copic markers and cut out.  I stamped his wing again, colored it, and cut that out as well.  Both pieces were given a generous dose of glossy accents and his wing was sprinkled with glitter.  When it was dry, I attached the wing with foam tape and squished a bit of white satin ribbon under it. 

SRM Stickers Blog - Hello by Michele - #card #janesdoodles #gardenfriends #clearstamps #golddoily

The background was done with paper scraps.  Each piece was given a bit of black ink on all sides and then adhered to yellow card stock.  I cut a triangular piece for the sentiment and attached my bird.  I slipped a SRM gold doily under it for a bit of interest.

Have a great day!

Spring Card by Cassonda


Who's ready for spring? Cassonda here to share with you a sweet card to get ready for the nicer, brightly colored weather coming soon!

My card is a crisp white base...the whitest I could find. I really wanted all the color to POP off the card. The papers are new from Doodlebug and so adorable for spring

SRM Stickers Blog - Spring Card by Cassonda - #card #spring #twine #stickers #kraftbagembossed #clearstamp #janesdoodles

After I layered the papers, ribbons and lace I went to town embellishing the card. But what about that sentiment? It's from the spring sticker sentiment.  

SRM Stickers Blog - Spring Card by Cassonda - #card #spring #twine #stickers #kraftbagembossed #clearstamp #janesdoodles

See that sweet little bee up there? It's from the Jane's Doodles Clear Stamp Garden Friends set . So fun!

SRM Stickers Blog - Spring Card by Cassonda - #card #spring #twine #stickers #kraftbagembossed #clearstamp #janesdoodles

For my little tag pocket, I cut a flourish embossed kraft bag to the size I needed for a small tag to fit inside. Then I adhered all the edges. I stamped, punched and tied a solid pink sorbet twine bow to the top of the tag. To view the tag, I tore down the middle to open it up a little and rolled the edges. The last embellishment was to add some rolled paper flowers.

What do you plan to do to get ready for spring?
Thanks for joining us today and happy crafting!
