Valentine cards & treats class this week!

By | February 6, 2018

This is one of my most popular classes because it’s so much fun to make your own Valentine cards and treats.  I think it brings everyone back to their childhoods when you made Valentines for everyone in your classroom.  Do you remember putting them in the specially decorated mailboxes or envelopes at everyone’s desks?  Wondering if you are going to get one from the cute someone?

At class, you will make two of each card design and two treat boxes.  You have flexibility on the sentiments for customization.  (They really don’t even have to be Valentines cards, you could turn them into Anniversary, thinking of you, wedding…..).  You also have the choice of what color you want to paint the background and the choice of wood for the cut out heart.

Please be sure to RSVP by tomorrow, Wednesday 2/7 as to which class you want to come to.  Your choices are:  Thursday, 2/8 at 10 am, Friday, 2/9 at 10 am and 7 pm.  Class is $30 and you will need to bring your own adhesive.  If you would like to make additional treat boxes, they are $2 each.  RSVP to christine@mailsomethingpretty.comSliding Barn Door Valentine cardWood cut out heart with watercolor background valentine cardValentine treat boxes with Hersey nuggets

Super bowl beer bottle cards

By | February 1, 2018

Super Bowl excitement is everywhere:  the radio, tv, stores, those awesome ads, school spirit days, church and I could go on and on, especially if you live in the Philadelphia or Boston areas.  I thought, why not do a Super bowl beer bottle card challenge?  It’s a team color card challenge: Tranquil Tide, Basic Black and Smoky Slate verses Night of Navy, Whisper White and Real Red.  Eagles colors versus Patriots colors.  Which card (team) is going to win?Super bowl beer bottle card color challenge

Do you have a favorite team color combination?  Is it the same as your favorite team preference: Eagles or Patriots?  Leave a comment and let me know who (or which) you are rooting for.

What I used to make my Super bowl beer bottle team color cards

You can see that the layouts of the cards are exactly the same, but in mirroring images.  I thought it looked more competitive that way.  Many of the Bubble Over stamp set samples found on Pinterest are of the soda variety (or tonic or pop, depending on where you live).  I thought, in the spirit of the Super bowl, the bottles would make great beer bottles.  I do not like beer, so I wasn’t sure which type would be the favorite flavor: lite, dark or German (apparently German is the only type found in green bottles, I asked my husband).  Maybe they should all be Sam Adams beers since the Patriots are going to win??

The Bubble Over bundle, which saves you 10% when purchased together, is the perfect beer making kit (or soda kit in any flavor).  The framelits cut out the bottles for you so there is no fussy cutting with scissors, and there are lots of great pieces you can use to layer your bottles, including a straw, bottle cap and labels.

For the background, I used different wood patterns from the 6″ x 6″ Wood Textures Designer Series paper stack.  There are so many uses for this wood paper.  I just made a Valentine card with the wood paper that I will post in a future post.  It’s a really great go-to pack of paper.

Super Bowl Flash Sale!

Place an order (no minimum) during Super Bowl weekend and I will mail you the winning team’s card and a pack of mini-dimensionals (another go-to product of mine, especially when making the sliding barn door from the Barn Door Bundle).  If you prefer the losing team’s card colors, I will send you that card instead (they both are great looking).  All you need to do to shop is click HERE.  Be sure to shop during Super Bowl weekend to win your prize.  Hostess code: U4BTVQRF.

So what do you think?  Eagles or Patriots?  Let me know.

What to do when you’re home sick from school

By | January 30, 2018

My 15 year old daughter is in the in-between stages of being sick.  She’s not quite ready to go back to school (which she really likes), but bored from being home for 5 days.  There’s only so much Netflix you can watch.  Last night she asked for something to do, so I handed her the Soft Sayings card kit and she got to work.  These all-inclusive card kits are a perfect kit for so many reasons!  Need a card quick?  Want to work on a project but not make a mess?  A beginner card maker?  Sick home from school?  I didn’t exactly time her, but she completed all 20 cards in less than 2 hours.  Although, she left the bows for me to do (insert smiley face here).Soft Sayings Card Kit

She did a great job making the cards and keeping busy.  Now my cards are all finished, a win for both of us.  The kit provides a perfect combination of the watercolor look and just the right amount of glitter on these floral cards.  There are 9 different sentiments to choose from and they cover almost any reason you would be sending a card.  Not shown in these photos are the coordinating watercolored envelopes.  And, after you finish making and giving away all these beautiful cards, there is a refill kit that you can order so you can make them all again.  The refill kit includes everything from the kit except the stamps and ink (because you already have those).  Cards from the Soft Sayings card kit

This kit also makes a great gift to give, it even comes in a nicely decorated kraft box.  Everything you need comes in the box: stamps, ink, papers, washi tape, dimensionals and decorated envelopes (except your tape runner).  Mother’s day is not that far away and it would always make a great birthday gift.  Think ahead to who you give gifts to and place your order.  Shopping ahead of time will make the celebration even more enjoyable.  I would order one for yourself too because they are that good.

Here’s the ordering information (you can click on them to bring you directly to my online store):

Soft Sayings Card Kit, #145466, $35

Snail tape runner #104332, $7 or you could use glue dots #103683, $5.25

Soft Sayings Refill Kit, #145387, $21

Thinking Summer on this Winter’s Day

By | January 15, 2018

Today we had snow and freezing rain and it looks like we will be getting some more snow on Wednesday.  But, with stamps, you can make any day a summer day and this is what I did today.  I had a few of my team members over for a Stamparatus show & tell and they each made this summer’s card.  The newly-to-be released Stamparatus is a must have tool for making multiples of the same card (and for getting your stamp positioned just right).  Anyone can order a Stamparatus in the upcoming 2018/19 Annual catalog that will be released in June.  More details when June gets a bit closer.  I am a member of Stampin’ Up!’s Leader-to-Leader group and am one of 2000 demonstrators that has one already.  I am so lucky!  There are so many good reasons to be a part of Stampin’ Up!  This is one of my all-time favorite Stamp sets, Colorful Seasons.  It really has stamps for all four seasons, which is what we have here in New England.  I paired it with the coordinating ColorTheory paper stack.  Super easy and super impact.  Be sure you have this set in your stash, it’s a definite go to set.

Easy Gift to Make & Give

By | December 20, 2017

The pages are turning quickly on the calendar and December 25 is not so many pages away.  Do you need a personal, homemade gift that is awesome and easy??  Give the gift of a plant, but personalize it with your own plant tag.  This summer, my aloe plant had several babies and the whole pot needed dividing.  My mind went straight to Christmas gifts.  They are non-caloric, practical (I use mine often because I tend to burn myself often in the kitchen) and they have the nice red & green color of Christmas.I purchased these small galvanized plant pots from Ikea (I think they were maybe $1 each) and came in red and silver.  I thought the red would look nice for Christmas.  I wrapped some jute twine around the pot a few times (to step it up a little) and inserted my own plant tag.I stamped and embossed my greeting with white embossing powder on black card stock, and then cut it out using a stitched oval Thinlit.  The “season of cheer” stamp came from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set (I used this set a whole lot this season).  I also cut a same sized oval in patterned paper (Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper).  Tape down a wooden skewer (trim to fit) on the patterned paper and add some dimensionals, and then your greeting.  You just made an instant, awesome plant tag.  I also added a few jingle bells with red twine.  Does the twine and mini-dimensionals look familiar?  They are leftovers from my October Paper Pumpkin kit (monthly Paper Pumpkin kits are really a great thing to get and also makes a great last minute gift*).As you can see in this photo, I have multiple aloe plants to give as gifts.  Feel free to head to your local nursery to purchase an aloe plant (or any other plant) to give as a gift if you don’t have aloe babies hanging around.  All you need to do is make your own tag.

*In case you were interested in Paper Pumpkin for a last minute gift (and no one needs to know if was last minute), follow these links:
Paper Pumpkin is a monthly crafting kit that contains everything you need for that month’s project in it’s own box.  It is delivered straight to your mailbox all for only $19.95/month.  No “big box store” can offer you this service.

OnStage Display Board Application Samples

By | December 12, 2017

Everything about Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage events is awesome.  Being with like-minded people, watching presentations that include new techniques and new products, absorbing all the positive energy, meeting people from all around the world, and seeing everyone’s creativity because we love & appreciate creativity.  The next OnStage local event will be in April 2018.  The location that is closest to me is in Hartford CT.  I’m thrilled with this location, as it’s only 2 hours away.  I hope that many of my team will join me and get to experience the awesomeness of a Stampin’ Up! event.

I have been lucky to be chosen twice before as an OnStage Display Board Stamper (in Baltimore and New Jersey) and am applying again, in hopes that I will be chosen for Hartford.  It is truly a great and challenging experience to create designs for fellow demonstrators.

To apply, I need to post original designs: 3 cards, 2 3-D items and a scrapbook page.  Here are my designs and thus my application:

I just love the contrast of the black & white with the bright Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red.  A hint on how I made the rectangular red scallop background piece:  I used two square scallops and lined them up – you can’t even see the overlap.This card uses the same stamp set as the above card, Carols of Christmas, but has a completely different look because I used my Stampin’ Write markers to color the individual words.  The real red Peace gives a great pop against the ombre blues and silver foil paper.  I think this is a great card to send anyone, no matter what Holiday they celebrate.This year’s trend is black & white so I found that I was influenced by it.  This card has a softer feel than the bright one above.  I love the chalkboard look, don’t you?  The surrounding holly garland is from one of my favorite sets, At Home with You, just turned on it’s side (it’s supposed to drape over the front door from the set).  I actually made this card for my Christmas in July class, and you can read a little more details from this post: http://mailsomethingpretty.com/christmas-in-july-featuring-at-home-with-you/

These treat tube cocoa gifts are the cutest gift to give and receive!  My daughter loves to concoct things in the kitchen and I had her in mind when designing them.  Inside one tube is cocoa mix and in the other is crushed candy cane and mini chocolate chips.  At the bottom of the bag are mini marshmallows and a stirring straw.  Just imagine the fun of making your own cup of hot cocoa on a cold snowy day.  I think the sentiment is absolutely right on “hug in a mug” which bears the same name as the stamp set I used.  These treat tubes are retiring, so if you want them you should order them soon!These cocoa packs are decorated in the latest plaid craze.  I made a pocket with card stock and slipped in a package of cocoa mix.  Inserted underneath the belly band are two Mini Ghirardelli peppermint barks (my favorite flavor).  The 2 x 8″ cellophane bags are the perfect size for these chocolates (and the treat tubes above).  Use this a gift all by itself, or slip in a gift card with the cocoa as an extra special gift.For my scrapbook page entry, I decided to include a few pages from a Memory Keeping album I have been making my niece Fiona for the past 3 years.  I’m going to give her the album for Christmas this year.  I watched her after school on Fridays (we named them Fiona Fridays) and tried to take photographs of some of the different things we did, even if it was just having a cup of tea.  Her scheduled changed this year so I wasn’t needed, and now Fridays seem a bit empty without her.The design work isn’t crazy spectacular because I wanted the photographs to be the star.  The purpose of this memory book (and all memory books should be) is to preserve some of our memories together.  The pre-designed cards (from Memories & More) make it super easy to add color, creativity, graphics and journaling.  All you need to do is insert the cards in the pockets and you have instant gratification.As you can see, we had some fun times together and a lot of them were having cups of tea and baking in the kitchen.

Thank you for taking a look at my entry and I look forward to hearing from the Display Board committee.

Free Shipping (Again!!!)

By | December 10, 2017

I am so happy to announce that Stampin’ Up! is offering Free Shipping again on Monday, Dec. 11 (that’s tomorrow as I type this).  I need to replenish some of my snail refills (as I have been busy making my Christmas cards).  Be sure to check your card stock stash.  Are you missing or low on your favorite colors?  Do you need more adhesives?  How is your envelope supply?  Is there a stamp set you have been admiring but haven’t purchased yet?  That Big Shot will look so nice waiting for you under your Christmas tree (with a nice tag “from Santa” attached).  All you need to do is click the SHOP tab above and start your shopping.  There is no minimum or maximum to receive free shipping.  Happy Shopping!!!!

Reserve your STAMPARATUS

By | November 15, 2017
Stampin’ Up! announced and showed many great things over the last few days at their OnStage Live event and this is the first we get to share with you!!!  For the last two years, Stampin’ Up! has been designing a new, innovative stamp placement tool.  I was very lucky and proud to be part of the development team, but was sworn to secrecy.
Stampin’ Up! is not the first to design a stamp placement tool, the first was designed by Misti.  The Stamparatus is very unique to Stampin’ Up! and can perform functions that no other placement tool can.

Why do YOU need one? You’ll fall in love with stamping all over again when you learn everything you can do with it!

  • Make multiples with ease
  • Consistently stamp crisp, clean images
  • If you want a darker impression, apply more ink and restamp—no need to start over
  • Make fewer mistakes, saving time and money
  • Easily create 2-step, 3-step, and 4-step stamped images using reversible plates
  • Develop new and specialized stamping techniques with adjustable stamping plates and precision placement

Product details:

  • Compatible with Stampin’ Up!’s red rubber and photopolymer stamps
  • Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps
  • Rulers and gridlines for quick measuring
  • 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper
  • 2 reversible plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with
  • 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
  • Magnet storage areas
  • Retail Price–$49.00
With the launch of this tool, Stampin’ Up! is trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.
RESERVATION WINDOWS AVAILABLE TO SHIP
November 16–30, 2017 Approx. February 1, 2018
December 5–30, 2017 Approx. March 19, 2018
January 15–30, 2018
The first reservation window will open on Nov. 16 at 4pm EST.  You need to have an account set up with my online store.
Here is the link to reserve your Stamparatus:

Thinking outside the box (literally)

By | November 7, 2017

My brother’s birthday was last week and sometimes male cards can be a bit of a challenge.  When we were kids (he’s 4 years younger than me) he loved to watch the popular 1970’s show Doctor Who.  It scared me, but I still watched it because we were only allowed one show each a day and I wanted my tv fix.  He recently told me he watched too many Smurfs episodes for the same reason.

Think outside the Box

Sometimes, you need to see a stamp set with a different set of eyes.  That’s what I did with the popular At Home with You stamp set.  A lovely seasonal stamp set that focuses on a front door.  I turned this front door into the Tardis (his time machine) from Doctor Who:Now, it’s not exactly like the Tardis, but I think it represents it well.I will be doing another post on the new Stampin’ Blends, but those are the markers I used to color the time machine.  I absolutely love these new alcohol markers.  They blend beautifully and are extremely addictive.

My brother really liked his card and I was thrilled that he did.  I was so excited to give it to him.  Now, I have a whole year to think of another idea for him.
