Mom-&-me-through-the-years

Mother.  Someone who we can turn to for advice and count on no matter what .  One of the few people who has know you your entire life.  The annual holiday set aside to observe this important person in our lives is right around the corner, May 10th to be exact.  In order to make this the most memorable Mother's Day yet, for both you and your own mother, myself along with our incredibly talented design team have put together THE best collection of homemade gifts from the heart.  All of which use our NEW Mother stamp set.  A bit further down this post, keep your eye out for the FREE download that includes complete supply lists, instructions and full-color photographs of all eleven of the gifts mentioned by the team today.

Want to know the BEST part about today's presentation?  I know the economy is hitting a lot of folks hard right now.  Everyone's trying to make a dollar stretch as far as possible as the price of necessities seems to increase overnight.  Isn't this the PERFECT opportunity to create gifts that are inexpensive to the pocketbook, but extravagant when it comes to meaning and gratitude? 

Almost all of the gifts that the team and I have created

would cost less than $15 to put together!

Talk about a bargain!  I can guarantee you that the recipient would prefer it over a new purse or a gift certificate to a spa ANY DAY!  So, what are you waiting for!  We are giving you plenty of notice!  Start planning now for what you would like to create for Mom!  Just you wait and see how good it feels to give a gift from the heart!

Before I get to the rest of the team's presentations, I wanted to share my personal project with you.  When the idea for this gift came to me, I was SO excited to execute it!  It was fun, easy and will surely serve as a very memorable mother's day gift for my mom.

Supplies

To begin, you will need one of our clear top nugget tins, spring moss Bitty Dot Basics paper (cut to 3.25" x 5") and four photos that are cropped to measure about 2" x 1.25".

Adhesive for photos

Adhere the photos to the spring moss paper.  Apply Scor-tape around the outside edge of the clear window on the top of the tin lid.

Photos adhered

Adhere the photo mat FACE DOWN on the top of the lid.  The end result will be your photos peeking though the interior of the lid.

Cutting top to size

Next, you want to create a pretty top for the tin.  I found that if you cut your cardstock down to EXACTLY 3-7/16" x 5-5/16" and round the four corners with a corner rounder punch it will fit perfectly.  I love this sentiment from my new Mother stamp set,

"Everything I am today, I owe to you because your love showed me the way." 

This is exactly how I feel about my mother, so I knew this would be the perfect phrase to use.

Top adhered to tin

I adhered the completed piece to the lid of the tin with Scor-tape, just so I know it isn't going anywhere.  It's definitely a good idea to do all of your embellishing and stamping for the topper before you adhere it in place.  Just makes everything easier!

Beads & headpins

I wanted to put some pretty little feet onto the tin and decided to do so with beads.  You could easily just glue four beads to the bottom of the tin, but I decided to take it up a notch and add a decorative silver bead as well.  After some brainstorming as to the best way to attach them, it occurred to me that these headpins I normally use for making my own stick pins, were the PERFECT solution.

Piercing holes

I turned the tin over and pierced one hole in each of the four corners of the tin bottom.  I used a paper piercer to do this.  A few light taps with a hammer allowed it to go through the tin bottom easily.

Inserting leg

After adding the beads to all four headpins, I simply inserted them through each of the holes I just pierced, folding the end of the headpin down so that it was flat against the tin bottom.  I used strong tape to hold down these ends.

Bottom legs

The finished bottom looks like this.  It is amazing how a small, quick & easy addition like these beaded legs really dress up an ordinary tin!

In case you were wondering what my vision was at this point, I wanted to create a jewelry box.  To continue, every jewelry box needs dividers.  I designed some super easy-to-use dividers for our nugget tins for Christmas a few months ago. 

You can go HERE to see the original post and complete directions on how to assemble the dividers.

Or, you can just go directly  HERE to download the FREE template!

Fabric adhered to cardstock

I began by printing the template onto a piece of Stamper's Select White cardstock.  I then used Heat-n-Bond iron-on adhesive to attach some pretty cotton fabric to the WRONG SIDE of the template.  (I used a quilter's grade cotton and it worked beautifully.  I'm not sure how other fabrics would work for this particular project, but I would love to hear from you if you try something else that works well too!)  I was REALLY impressed with how well this technique worked and look forward to making more "fabric" paper in the future!  Look out Amy Butler! *wink*

Scored inserts

I then flipped the cardstock over to the RIGHT SIDE of the template, with all of the printing, and cut out the divider pieces using a craft knife and ruler. I scored on the appropriate score lines using my Scor-Pal, just as I would if there weren't any fabric on the opposite side.  I folded them according to the original instructions and was thrilled with how well the fabric took the folds!

Final legs

Here is the tin with the fabric cardstock dividers officially added.  I just LOVE how it turned out!  The addition of fabric really helps to make the tin feel more sophisticated and inviting.  I'm sure you noticed the addition of the decorative metal piece on the front, too.  It is just a little something from my stash, but I did find a source for similar bits and pieces that you can check out HERE.  The piece was adhered  in place with just a few small dabs of Gorilla Glue.

Jewelry box closed

So this means the jewelry box was complete!  Although… shouldn't there REALLY be a sentimental piece of jewelry to put inside…

Bracelet-&-poem

This is a bracelet and accompanying poem that I wrote, inspired by other "color symbolism" bracelets I have seen around the web. 

You can download a copy of the poem here…
Download Colors of Mother Poem

I picked out beads for the bracelet based on the colors listed in the poem.  After a bit of bead play, I found an arrangement I liked. 

Jewelry box with scroll

The poem is designed to be trimmed and rolled into a scroll that will fit in the long compartment in inside the jewelry box.  I love the idea of my mom using this small tin as her *everyday* jewelry box.  Perhaps kept on her bedside table to put her jewelry in as she prepares for bed each night.  It warms my heart to think about her reading the special message on the lid each night, and then seeing all of the special photos inside as she tucks her jewelry away.  I think it will really be something that she cherishes for years to come.

Mother card

I decided to create a card to go along with my jewelry box, and of course the two need to coordinate!  I used the flourished "Mother" image in the lower corner of the card, flanked by another one of my favorite sentiments from the set.

"I never knew the depths of your love until I became a parent myself." 

Don't you just LOVE that Mother image!  I think it has such a pretty flourish to it!  Because it it still maintains "clean" lines it can go from vintage elegance to understated simplicity with just a few changes in color and embellishment choices!

Card flower closeup

One of my favorite details is the leftover fabric cardstock strip I added to run down the center of the card.  It was a great way to use up a leftover scrap and help to integrate the two projects together.

Mother Ensemble

Here's shot of the completed ensemble.I'm just over the moon with how it all turned out and I hope you feel as though this is something you could easily  recreate on your own after all these detailed instructions!

So now it's on to the rest of the team! To help you execute all of the design team's projects, I have compiled a thorough pdf that you can download and keep on hand as an easy reference.  You can download it here…

    Oh my goodness… It’s just so amazing! I am speechless!! What mother wouldn’t love that? (Or – what woman, actually, because I sure wouldn’t be mad if anyone gave me one of these!)

    I’m definitely gonna make one of those… For my MIL maybe – because my mom is an angel and they don’t seem to have a very well organized postal system up there.

    In order to be closer to her only grandchild and help out my brother & his wife, Mom and Dad set up a trailer for Mom to live in during the week while she cares for my niece. Most of my mom’s “comforts of home” are left at her house. I KNOW she would love that little tin for her trailer and cherish it for years to come! I would love to win this set!

    Wow! These are all so cool! My mom passed away 8 years ago, but I do have a dear friend who has been like a mom to me. I would definitely make her the travel mug.

    Vivian says:

    I am sad to say that my mother is no longer with me. She would have loved any of these projects and I would love making some of them for her since she gave me my love for handcrafted things. There are a lot of other people I could do the projects for in her honor.

    Oh my – this month’s DT creations has probably been the sweetest and most inspiring ever. I’m not sure that I can make any of the gifts, but I definitely see some cards like yours, Nichole, and Betsy’s that I would love to do something sentimental with for my mother…with some fabric and some stitching….just seems to be sweeter and represent more.

    Sarah says:

    All the projects were wonderful! My mother is deceased, but I have her sister, my aunt, who means the world to me. Debbie’s quilt square-themed frame and card would be perfect for my aunt since she is a quilter. On one side of the 2-frame project, I would put a photo of the two of us on one of our European trips.

    This box is so lovely! Your ‘trick’ to make these dividers in the box is so genius, you know? I know another way to make them but it’s not as good as yours.

    I read your blog first.. and beads and tins are some of my favorite things… but I have to say that you were edged out by Lisa Johnson! Her travel mug is exquisite! It just looks so elegant and can be personalized in so many ways.

    All the stamp sets are great this month. I shall have to really focus on selling some things on ebay, as any money in my paypal account is earmarked for papertreyink products!

    My mother is no longer living, but I am part of a card-swap group that makes cards for our local library to sell (for $1–we are an impoverished rural area) and defray the cost of books. Mother’s Day is one of our biggest holidays for card sales and this stamp set would be PERFECT! Count me in!

    Wowza! I love everyone of the projects. I am going to try to make my mom the jewelry box that you made Nicole.

    Jeanne says:

    I have truly enjoyed ALL of the projects shared and I hope to create a card or two. But the one that spoke to me most is Lisa’s project…because my mother died in 1994 and Mother’s Day is a tough day for me. I DO celebrate the fabulous women in my life and I know just the lady who would truly appreciate something like Lisa’s project.

    Thank you so much for your attention to detail and the love that oozes out of everything you create. You are fabulously talented and we are all blessed because of that talent and your generosity!

    I love your jewelry box! I have some of the tins stashed away from a previous purchase and would love to make one for my mom. It may also be exactly what I’m looking for to make as bridesmaid gifts for my daughters upcoming wedding! I think it would be really cute to tuck this into one of Michelle’s small patchwork bags that she posted a few months ago. Now, if you would only come up with a sunflower stamp set, I’d be all set!

Truly. the little details to the tin, the poem, the bracelet! It is all so fantastic! I absolutely love it. I also love Pine’s project with “matching” photos between mother and daughter. it is so thoughtful and sweet. I hope to make something like that this year. Overall, (and once again) I am blown away by the wonderful designs from you and your DT. absolutely fabulous!

  • 221
    Pam says:

    Wow! the design team out did themselves for this occasion, all have beautiful projects. The one that really pulls at my heartstrings is the jewelry box you made from the nugget tin. Every year I have made my mom a special bracelet for Mothers day and have always tryed to come up with a special box to put it in. This year she will receive her bracelet in this beautiful tin jewelry box and I know she will ask me to make her several so she will have a keepsake box for all her other bracelets. Love the “Mother” stamp in this set. Thank you to the entire team for sharing all your creativity with us.

    I love all of the projects, but I think I might recreate Mish’s. The sentiments brought tears to my eyes, but my favorite one is about not knowing the depth of your mother’s love until you became a parent yourself. I know my mother would love this. Great job as usual, Nichole.

    This will be the 1st yr. in 40 some yrs. that I will not be able to give my Mother a Mother’s Day card since passing away in Nov.; however, memories of her will always be with me.

    I am collecting pictures of her, starting when she was young and I am going to put together a scrapbook together in honor of her memory.

    I loved my Mother dearly and she knew it. We talked every day on the phone, and I don’t think there was a day that went by that we told each other “Love You” Alice R.

    KristenA says:

    WOW! I loved all the beautiful projects from the design team members! Gorgeous ideas and a beautiful stamp set. It made me think of all the happy times I spend with my mom! I am hoping there’s a “MOM” stamp in addition to “Mother”. My mom hates being called Mother (she thinks it makes her sound old/stodgy)… So I’m hoping there’s “Mom” and “Grandma” in the set and something for those “like a second mom”… Love it!

    Nicole that will be such a treasured gift for your mother. I am sure she will love it. Mother’s day is always a sad day for me, I lost mother 19 years ago next month. Even though I am a mother of 2 wonderful children I have a hard time enjoying the day. I only hope that I will be around a long time for my daughter to enjoy our time together.
    Thank you for sharing,

    The only word I have for this jewelry box is “STUNNING”!…which is the same word I used when my daughter came out of the dressing room in THE wedding dress! I can’t wait to make this box for her and give it to her with a special gift from my heart to hers on her wedding day. Thank you, Nichole…what a precious gift idea.

  • 263
    Tracey C. says:

    These projects are all INCREDIBLE…I know I say this every month – but the DT has outdone themselves!!!! Way to go! I think the sentiment that most ‘got me’ is the “Someone who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take” it says it ALL. WOW.

    I love your jewellry box if I hadn’t seen it through the steps I wouldn’t have recognized it as a nugget tin.

    What beautiful projects all of you have created. The one that I plan on making first though is yours, Nichole.

Thank you for inspiring me ladies. As always you’ve outdone yourselves.

  • 314
    Amy says:

    I love your jewelry box. I might try it with a smaller tin, though. I’m thinking something to keep in your purse to tuck an extra pair of earrings into. Or maybe to keep in a desk drawer in your office (in case you decide to go out after work). Hmmm…. The scheming begins πŸ™‚ Thanks for the great inspiration!

  • 318
    Kathy K. says:

    All the gift ideas were wonderful (and even though it’s only March, they would make wonderful holiday gifts this year) – but I thinking Heather’s mini-album was so very cool and oh-so do-able since I’ve already got some nifty little coasters!!

    I’m blown away by all the thoughtful and pretty projects the team made for this event. Some had me smiling, others had me in tears, all of them were worth the time and effort to make. I’m sure I’ll be making at least 5. One for my mother, one each for my daughter and daughters-in-law and one more for my sister. All my favorite “Mothers”. πŸ™‚

    My mother would be in tears if I made her the little jewelry box. She loves things with meaning, the way you did with each stone of the bracelet. Yes, she’ll get that!

    I can’t wait to see this release! Wonder what other goodies you have to surprise us?

    Hugs,

  • 352
    Kacey says:

    All of the projects are great! I really love the jewelry box and Betsy’s book too! But I think the one I am most likely to reproduce is Dawn McVey’s jar with the memories. However, I will likely use it for my parents 40th wedding Anniversary in August – they would love that! Now to just get my siblings to cooperate πŸ˜€

  • 353
    Sheri Watts says:

    I really liked all of the projects. I liked the frame by Debbie Olsen and I also really thought Dawn’s idea was really clever. The jewelry box you made is awesome, (I love jewelry and handmade jewelry about as much as I love stamping!) This set looks really beautiful.

    The Mother’s Day creations that all of the PTI team members made for their mothers are so special. My favorite was hard to pick but I most likely will use Michelle Wooderson’s idea and use the tin in some way from Nicole’s project. I would really like to win the Mother’s Day stamp set!

  • 363
    natalie says:

    I loved all of the projects! This set will be special for me. My mom is my dearest friend in the world! She was a single mom that raised two kids and is amazing! I always tell her if I am 1/2 the mom she is I will be happy. Being a mother of three young children I can’t believe she raised us all by herself! I was hoping for a mother’s day set with sentiments and now I have it!

    Debbie’s choice of the two picture frames and the incorporation of the quilting. My Mom is a quilter and I piece quilts so it is something we share.

  • 369

    Nicole, everyone of your designers have made beautiful gifts to be given as Mother’s Day Presents. It would be so hard to just pick one to make. LOL!! I could see myself making one of each actually, but unfortunately my mother is deceased as well as my mother-in-law and they would have truly loved receiving any of those as they both were crafty women and loved receiving homemade items more than store bought because of the love and time it took to make it special for them. I would love to win the set as I think your stamp sets are so beautiful and the sentiments always touch my heart in some way of memories from the past and how I was brought up. I could see myself making some of these special gifts for some of the elderly ladies at my church as a token of “Christian Love”. Keep up the Good Work, you and your team are all truly blessed from the Lord with your talents. {{{HUGS}}}

    Sammie says:

    The “I never knew the depth of your love until I became a parent myself” sentiment really rings true with me. I understand and appreciate my parents much more since becoming a parent.

  • 371
    Anna says:

    The sentiment about not knowing the depths of her love until becoming a parent is so perfect not only for a Mother’s Day card but to announce the news that she’ll be a new grandmother (what better Mother’s Day gift could there be???). This is another great release, your creativity and generosity inspire me!

  • 372
    Kristy says:

    Wow!! Every one of the design team projects are gorgeous. I love Dawn’s idea of the candy jar full of “sweet memories.” Your jewelry box blew me away. I wish I had the team, and means, to replicate each project myself not only for my mom, but my sisters, daughter-in-law, and other special mothers in my life.

  • 373
    Deepa M. says:

    I think I will have my brothers and sister-in-laws, along with their children write special memories so that I can make a memory jar for my mother-in-law. I really like Nichole’s little book of her and her mom as well……….maybe that for my mother. And would it be sooooo…….. bad if I made the jewelry box for myself??? πŸ˜‰

    These were all great projects, and the stamp set is amazing! The project I’ll be working on first is the memory jar that Dawn created. My mom has Alzheimer’s, so this project has special importance to me. We’ve been trying to capture and share some of our favorite memories of time with my mom, so that my daughter has them to hold on to as grandma draws more into herself. The project is beautiful, and oh so meaningful!

  • 565

    Everything is just beautiful and so I can imagine making several of these projects. My daughter is out of school at the moment and we are visiting my Mother right now!

    Well, I’m not really sure which project I could really pull over. Your designers are just amazing. I really like Dawn’s jar of memories and Melissa’s gorgeous project.

    This was all sooo wonderful to page through. Thank you for organizing all of this for us. Spectacular job, Nichole.

    I would love to do the special memories idea of Dawn’s. My mom would really love that. She is our family rock and she needs to know all the ways she has encouraged, stood by, and loved us. I will need to get on that one soon.

    Thanks again.

    I love the little jewelry box. My mom would have loved it too. All this hoopla about “Mothers” is making me a bit sad since I don’t have either of my parents any more.

Both well done!

    Nichole and staff,
    Thank all of you so very much for all the time and work you went to in the development of the gift templates, ideas, cards and downloads. There are so many items of PAPERTREY INK that I want to order after looking at all of you work for two day almost nonstop. The time is bad to be spending money on crafts as our live at home son just lost his car and contents to the Nashville flooding. But now that I have fooud this site I do not plan to lose it. Both my mother and MIL are gone now, but I have sisters and SILs that are all mothers. Any of them would love the gifts. I have made them handcrafted note cards and stationary in the pass by dry embossing and my husband turned them wood writing pens. I love to make and give things from the heart.
    Thanks again,
    Marie
