Gone Before You Know It!

These Colors Will Be Filed Away In Stampin’ Up! History SOON!

The thing that really drew me to Stampin’ Up! almost 5 years ago was their amazing color combinations. The fact that whether it is ribbon, embellishments, card stock or ink, they all match.
Stampin’ Up!’s 4 core color groups do change, but usually only every 5 years or so but the In Colors are different, they are only in the catalog for two years. This year May 3, it will be time to say goodbye to the 2019-2021 In Colors.  
Which one is your favorite? Mine is Pretty Peacock followed by Seaside Spray.
Once the retirement list is announced, the In Color products in these colors will be “while supplies last” and often sell out quickly.  Do you have a favorite color? Make sure you have enough card stock. Did you purchase the ink pads, make sure you have the ink refills.
Now is the perfect time to add these items to an order, so you can take advantage of Sale-a-Bration before it is over.
Sale-a-Bration is shorter this year ending on February 28. Don’t let this amazing sale pass you by, take a look at your supplies as it’s the best time to get those accessories. Speaking of Sale-a-bration being shorter, if there is FREE items you haven’t gotten yet now is the time before they are gone for good! Like the fantastic Berry Blessing Stamp set and Berry Delightful Designer’s Series paper. See the sample card below.

Do you love to craft? Would you like to work from home? Do you enjoy people? Then becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator may be the perfect opportunity for you. And then there is the SUPER SIZE BUNDLE the Stater Kit.
Why would you pass up $57.50 worth of FREE product? That is what you are doing when you don’t buy the Starter Kit during Sale-a-Bration.

Better 1 or Better 2… Nope It’s Not an Eye Exam!

Click the image to see the items used in this card.

I earned the Berry Blessing Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series paper with my $100 order during Sale-a-Bration.

Who wouldn’t love this fun set!

Plus it coordinates with the Sweet Stawberry bundle found in the Mini Catalog.

Double the Fun!

The only problem is… Oh and don’t let that shadow effect on the sentiment of the berry background card sway you- it was a happy accident when I dropped my block! Talk about luck.

Here are the measurements for the card that will give you the look on the left. One thing I forgot to mention was that I ran out of the picnick plaid because I made so many of these cards that when I went to design my card class we had to flip the paper pattern. Thank goodness for the product coordination of Stampin’ Up!

  • Real Red Cardstock base 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 2 1/4 and 5 1/2
  • Berry Delightful DSP 4 x 5 1/4, 4 x 1 1/2 and 4 x 2
  • Basic White Card Stock 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3 3/4

Just a few tips when you make the card- 1. Use your bone folder to burnish those scores or the card won’t lay down right. 2. Tear and tape the smaller top section AFTER adhering the DSP even if you burnished well, you will be happy you did.

The inside.

Here is a fun technique to modify your stamps… cellophane tape (Scotch tape if you only know it by the brand name). Use a piece to block of the words you DON’T want to stamp. Ink the sentiment and remove the tape and stamp your card.

3D projects, Free PDF Tutorial

When Inspiration Strikes, Go With It!

My guess is that for most people garden planning is not on their radar but if you start your own seeds it is. Most die hard gardener’s also keep a journal of what they planted, where and how they turned out. Depsite my love of organization I have resisted this notion greatly. Today I was insipired to do more… maybe more like procrastination of other projects that needed to be completed today but here we are.

On the left is a note book given to me by Leigh Amburgey. She always makes wonder 3D gifts. Sometimes they are so lovely that I hesitate to use them and well this one didn’t seem right for hauling out to the garden and getting it all dirty. Nope best to save it for another record keeping project (maybe lotion recipes?). Feel free to comment if you have any ideas.

That brings me to the multiple notebooks Sidney had left over from school where only a few pages had been used at the end of the year. Presto chango on the right is the finished project using some left over Tim Holtz paper (shhh don’t tell anyone) and the now retired Stampin’ Up! Letters for You stamp set to spell out the French word for Garden. I thought the paper was more French in style and “Garden” wouldn’t fit on my clear block. Even the inside flap got an upgrade. To create the notebook I measured the front and inside and cut 2 of each (we can’t forget the back cover right?) and used Tombow Glue to adhere the pages. Of course I cut it a little large so some trimming was needed and added a label.

Gifts like these journals speak to me as a great way to thank someone, like a teacher for all their dedication this year. Maybe a gift for someone who will be like many spending their Covid free time out in the garden or even someone looking to start a bullet journal- they are the rage now!

Click the image to view the supplies to make this card.

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit! This last year has really shown me how important my relationships have been. You know they say the heart grows fonder with absence except it grew as well for those I have been spending most of my time with- my family.

I made this card thinking of my daughter Sidney as it is so very much her personality- light, soft and quietly beautiful. Ok maybe not so “quiet”, she is 11! I also like this for an anniversary card which is one type of card I am always needing but don’t seem to have on hand.

Start this card by cutting a full sheet of Blushing Bride at the 4 1/4 mark on the short side. Fold in half and crease. Normally, I do not score but with this cardstock it seemed much crisper to do so.

Build the front layer first with Very Vanilla 4×5 1/4 then with the Love You Always Speciality Designer Series Paper 3 3/4×5. Wrap the bottom 1/3 with 2 layers of Scalloped Lace Trim and adhere to the base with Stampin’ Seal or Stampin’ Seal Plus.

Crop the sentiment background in Very Vanilla and the Always in the Blushing Bride sheet from the Love You Always Foil. I used adhesive sheet on the back of the foil to make applying to the background easier but Tom Bow is also an option. Adhere to the lace with dimensionals. **TIP** put Stampin’ Seal under the lace where you will add the sentiment to keep it secure as the heaviness of the sentiment will cause the lace to move.

On the inside we have another Very Vanilla 4×5 1/4 that is stamped with a sentiment from the Forever Fern stamp set in Blushing Bride and adhere with Stampin’ Seal.
