Paper Pumpkin on sale for Sale-a-bration!

By | February 26, 2015

By now you know all about Sale-A-Bration—the best time of the year at Stampin’ Up! But, have you heard about the easiest way to earn your FREE products? With just one purchase, you’ll receive three months of total papercrafting paradise and a free product!

How might you ask? It’s easy—with a 3-month Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription. It gets even better because right now it’s on sale for just $54.85 —the perfect price to instantly qualify for your free product.

If you haven’t subscribed to Paper Pumpkin yet, here are a few things you’ve missed:

  • A monthly kit designed with beginners and advanced crafters in mind.
  • A variety of projects from cards to décor, gift packaging, and more!
  • Exclusive photopolymer stamps every month.
  • An ink spot every month with colors that don’t repeat in a 12-month period.
  • Embellishments like twine, ribbon, stickers, die-cuts, boxes, clips, buttons, sequins, burlap bags, frames, pinwheels, brads, banners, journals, and confetti.
  • A plethora of ideas on Pinterest from other subscribers to help you make the most of every kit.

It’s never too late to get in on all the fun!

But why limit yourself to just three months? With a 12-month prepaid subscription you’ll save $2 every month (that’s a free month every year), get FOUR free Sale-A-Bration products, host dollars, and 12 whole months of skipping to the fun!Snip20150226_3

Creative Blog Hop

By | February 6, 2015

I was asked by fellow demonstrator friend, Barbara Lash, to take part in a fun and creative Blog Hop.  It’s a great way for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators to share ideas and a little bit about the creative process as we design projects.

I can’t really take credit for the design of this project because Stampin’ Up! already did that for me.  There is nothing wrong with using someone else’s design (that is supreme flattery), as long as you give them credit.  My project today is the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Kit.  This is a fun and creative way to display the birthdays of those important to you.

Snip20150206_1To complete the calendar, all you need is the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp set, coordinating ink colors (Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Pumpkin Pie, Strawberry Slush and Real Red).  I bet you already have some of these colors.

Snip20150206_2Each month has it’s own coordinating image.  The kit includes the chipboard backing and clip to hang your calendar, die-cut banners, accents, alphabet stickers, baker’s twine, ribbon, sequin trim, sequins and glitter.  You just need to add your own adhesive and glue.

Snip20150206_3A tip when assembling – be sure to use the right printed calendar page for each month because they are pre-numbered.  Be sure February gets the 28!Snip20150206_5Don’t think the Perpetual Birthday Stamp Set is only for the Calendar Kit – Make coordinating cards to go along with everyone’s birthdays.  If you stock up on them, you can even mail the birthday cards out on time.

1.  What are you working on?

My next event is a Memory Keeping Workshop on Feb. 19.  I have just started working with the Project Life products and find them so easy to use.  I have never been a scrapbooker because I know that each page takes up so much time.  But, I like to take photos of my kids.  This new Memory Keeping system is exactly what I need.  I just print my photos, place them in the pockets and use the coordinating cards to either stand on their own (some of them are so nicely decorated) or use them to journal on.  I don’t want to forget those funny sayings or memories that we had.  If I want to add a little stamping or embellishments, I can – but I don’t have to.

My next event is a Perpetual Birthday Calendar Class on Feb. 22.  Lucky for me, Stampin’ Up! has done all the prep work.  All I need to do is provide a table, the stamp set and ink colors.  This kit (and the other four kits) make for a great class or workshop because all you have to do is put things together and socialize.  Gather your friends together and create your own party.

2.  How does your work differ from others in your genre?

It’s interesting to see what different types of projects can be made with the same products.  We all start with the same stamp sets, papers, punches, etc. – but we all come up with different ways of using them.  How exciting is that!  I tend to make more cards than anything else.  My style is clean and crisp, although I try to vary it a little bit, since there are so many other styles out there and I want everyone to make cards with me.

3.  Why do you create what you do?

I love making and sending cards.  I came up with a little saying a few years ago “Send a card, receive a smile”.

4.  How does your creativity process work?

As much as I like to come up with my own designs, time does not always allow for that.  Pinterest has become a great resource for me.  I search for the stamp set I want to use and add the key words “Stampin’ Up!”.  You wouldn’t believe how many ideas pop up.  A lot of times I will take a little bit from 2 or 3 designs and merge them into my own.  There is nothing wrong with using other’s designs and layouts (that’s really why we put them on social media in the first place).

Monday, February 16, Demonstrator Roxie Nitti is scheduled to share a project idea and more about their creative process.  Roxie is a fellow SUDSOL member.  SUSDSOL stands for Simply Unique Demonstrators Sharing Online.  You can find out information about SUDSOL at SUDSOL.org.  I highly recommend joining this great bunch of demonstrators.

Would you like to be a part of this Blog Hop?  All you have to do is post a project idea, answer those four questions and link a demonstrator to do the same thing.  Contact me if you are interested and I will link your blog to mine (and answer any questions you have about doing so).

Thanks for hopping here.

 

Just back from Leadership Conference…back to a lot of snow!

By | February 2, 2015

Snip20150202_10I just flew in yesterday from Stampin’ Up!’s last Leadership Conference in Florida.  Yes, you read correctly – this was their last Leadership Conference.  But not to worry!!!!  Stampin’ Up! is always about change and making things better.  They will now be hosting new and improved events for demonstrators – both locally and globally.  They will now host OnStage events beginning this fall – OnStage Live, OnStage Local and OnStage Online.  More details to come.  But remember, you can only attend if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  No worries because it is quite easy to become a demonstrator – all you have to do is purchase the value packed, customizable Starter Kit for only $99 (you get $125 of products and free shipping).  Now is the best time to make that purchase because of Sale-a-bration!.  I would love to help you.  There are so many benefits to  that Starter kit:  financially, socially, creative and more.  I am happy to share them with you and help you see that it is the right purchase for you.

Snip20150202_7Do you recognize anyone?  That’s Shelli Gardner, founder of Stampin’ Up! looking fantastic as always and me (just after taking a walk and eating a delicious Mexican dinner – I looked fantastic earlier in the day).  Shelli is always so kind about taking photos with anyone who asks.  My fellow friends Gretchen and Nancy got one too.

Snip20150202_8Here’s a photo of the stage – I just loved how they designed it.  While at Leadership I took several classes to help me be a better demonstrator, took an incredible amount of photographs of cards and projects I want to try, learned some new techniques and saw some new upcoming products, and chatted with wonderful people from all over the country who do what I do and also love it.  There are so many ways to be a demonstrator – definitely not a one size fits all.  I invite you to give it a text drive.

Click here to see some details of the Starter Kit.  Please contact me with any questions.

 

You’re invited to my Kick-off event on Jan. 18

By | January 14, 2015

Come to my home to play with the new products from the new 2015 Occasions catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Make four cards for $15 OR make them for FREE if you place an order that day.  I will have many new products including 3 of the new kits for you to check out.

Bring a new friend and you both will receive a gift.

Remember, you will receive one free sale-a-bration product for every $50 you spend.  No limits.

The new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs begins TODAY!

By | January 6, 2015

Here it is -the launch of the new 2015 Occasions catalog AND Sale-a-bration!  To recap, Sale-a-bration awards extra benefits for ordering between January 6 – March 31.  Any order of $50 (or $50 increments) earns a free product/s from the Sale-a-bration exclusive catalog.  Any workshop that totals $250 earns the hostess an extra $25 on top of her regular hostess benefits and any person purchasing the Starter Kit (joining Stampin’ Up!) can choose either a new Project Kit (all of them are FABULOUS) from the new Occasions catalog OR choose two Sale-a-bration items.

Be sure to check out my calendar section for events during this time, AND let’s schedule your workshop so that you can be that lucky hostess to earn that extra $25 of products.  Even better, let’s get you to join my team, earn the extra incentives AND reap the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  Better to join in January so you can share these exact same benefits with your friends.

I have two more announcements to make this week, so stay tuned….

Now, for today’s card:Snip20150104_7This card is a little smaller than the usual 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card.  I used Stampin’ Up!’s Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes pack (comes in a set of 20) that measures 3 1/2″ x 5″.  This size mails fine with a standard Forever Stamp.  Do you love the Lotus Flower?  This is a new 3-step stamping set from the Sale-a-bration catalog.Snip20150104_8Very simple and clean (but not boring!) for you to write a beautiful thank you note.  This is the time of year for those, isn’t it.  I also used the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog (except that little Blackberry Bliss stripe which comes from the Moonlight Paper Stack in the annual catalog).Snip20150104_11It may look like I used three separate purples to create the lotus flower, but I only used Blackberry Bliss.  I will do a tutorial soon to show you how to get those layers.

How long is your wish list?  If you have lots of things you want to order, then now is the time to Shop, Host or Join! If you haven’t received your catalogs yet and want them, please send me an email with your name & address and I will send it to you.  Happy Sale-a-bration!

3 More Days and Counting!

By | January 4, 2015

Not many more days to go until the January 6 launch of both the 2015 Occasions catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog!  And do you know what else isn’t many days away?  Valentines Day!  If you want to make your sweetheart, grandchildren, BFF, children, or anyone else a special Valentine’s day treat & card, be sure to plan ahead.   That means design, order supplies and create all before February 14.

Here is a cute little treat bag using some new products:
Snip20150103_3I didn’t want to use the traditional red & pink colors, so I went with Night of Navy, Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango instead.  I’m really pleased with this combination.  The “Petite Cafe Gift Bags” are the perfect size for all sorts of treats, are kraft poly-lined and have a tin tie closure.  They measure 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ x 8″ and are food safe.Snip20150103_5

I used three different Big Shot dies to make this tag.  The bottom layer uses the Banner framelit to cut the Night of Navy and Whisper White patterned paper (from the new Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper).  I stamped repetitive layers of Tangerine Tango hearts from the new “Hello Life” stamp set and then cut it out with the Chalk Talk framelit.  The third die cut the “you” from the new “Hello You” Thinlits dies (it has four words: hello, thank, you and happy).  You can get this die set by itself or in a 15% off bundle with the “Crazy about You” stamp set (I haven’t shown this set to you yet, but let me tell you that you will love it’s versatility with it’s two flowers, stems and 28 phrases/words).Snip20150103_7The “I” is from a fabulous alphabet set “Skinny Mini Alphabet” stamped in Night of Navy and the striped heart is stamped in Melon Mambo and cut with scissors.  This heart is also from the “Hello Life” set.  The embellishments I used are the Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Tangelo Twist 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine.  After writing this list of ingredients, I guess I should have used ink colors Tangelo Twist and Strawberry Slush instead of the Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo!!!  Tell me, do you notice that they aren’t exactly matched?

4 more days!!!!

By | January 3, 2015

I already mailed two of today’s cards out to friends who had December birthdays – I have to be totally honest here and admit I mailed them as belated birthday cards.  But, what a surprise they got when they saw new products on their birthday cards (they are both Stampin’ Up! demonstrators).Snip20141231_10Yesterday I posted cards using the new chalk ink.  This may look the same – but I used a different technique.  Hats off to Connie Babbert for the idea – I totally copied her (I promise you she will be flattered and happy I used her technique).  All the words are embossed in white – and wait for it….then I colored over the white with my Blendabilities!!!!!!!  How awesome is that!Snip20141231_12

 

All of these words are really three separate stamps – “happy birthday”, “celebrate your big day with cake”, and “and perhaps a little ice cream”.  They all come in the new Sale-a-bration stamp set “Big Day” along with stamps of a birthday cake and candle.  The inside strip of paper is from the Sale-a-bration designer series paper “Best Year Ever”.Snip20141231_13Do you remember the other day I mentioned I like to use the “inners” from the new “Petal Potpourri” flower stamp set as backgrounds – here is that polka dot used as a fun little background.

Do you like what you see?  Start taking notes and create a wish list.  Just a few more days and you can place your order.

Only 5 days left!

By | January 2, 2015

I am thrilled to be using new products!  This next one is brand new to me and highly recommended by a fellow demonstrator friend, Teresa.Snip20141231_7Stampin’ Up! has partnered with ColorBox and created “Chalk Ink Pads” and special Chalkboard Paper!  Doesn’t it look like a real chalkboard???  I used two of the three chalk colors here.  The background image is in Aquamarine and the “just for you” is in Rose Coral.  The third color is called Yellow Citrus.Snip20141231_8

This new stamp set “Balloon Bash” comes with three stamps that will work brilliantly with the chalkboard inks and three balloons, some sprinkles and candles – perfect for anyone’s birthday.  The new chalkboard paper definitely makes a difference.  Another time I will show you the comparison between the chalkboard paper and basic black card stock.Snip20141231_9

How many of you noticed those Bermuda Bay sequins?  They come on a roll just like the gold sequins from the holiday catalog – use them like ribbon or individually for a little sparkle.  Did you notice the new Designer Series paper too?  I’m sure you did because you pay attention to details just like me.  It’s also called “Birthday Bash” and uses coordinating colors: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Gold, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Tangelo Twist and Whisper White.  You will find it in the new 2015 Occasions Catalog right next to the “Birthday Bash” stamp set and Bermuda Bay sequins.

Leave a comment and tell me what you think!

Only 6 more days! Sale-A-Bration & 2015 Occasions Catalog Launches on Jan. 6

By | January 1, 2015

I thought I would try to get you as excited as I am with a little catalog launch countdown.  I am fortunate (in many ways, but right now because I am a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator) to have been able to pre-order from both the new catalogs –  the 2015 Occasions and the Sale-a-bration catalogs.  You too can be as just fortunate!  Become a demonstrator!!!  Join my team!!!  (Sale-a-bration is the best time to sign on too because Stampin’ Up! gives you extra things for signing on – not just the bargained priced $99 Starter kit (& free shipping).  Let’s get you signed up so you can offer all your friends the benefits of Sale-a-bration too.  I’ll explain about SAB in just a bit, but I thought you may want to see a sample of a card using new products:

Snip20141231_2What do yo think?  I am LOVING this color combination – Coastal Cabana & Calypso Coral – sounds tropical, doesn’t it?  A little splash of Crushed Curry and Sahara Sand.  My favorite part of this card is the new Calypso Coral Pompom Trim – this fuzzy trim is going to add just the right touch to any card, gift bag, or anything that needs a little pop.  I may even add some to my hair with a bobby pin.

Snip20141231_5Here’s another view with a peek  inside – I hate leaving my cards blank inside (they feel a bit naked to me).  This new stamp set “Petal Potpourri” has four different large flowers and two inners (not sure what to call them – but I sure like using them for backgrounds, as well as the insides of flowers).  Did I mention that there is a new punch “Flower Medallion” to go along with these flowers?  I didn’t use it here, but will certainly be using it in the future.

Snip20141231_6How do you like the new Designer Series Paper?  It has a fun name “Best Year Ever”.  It’s a Sale-a-bration item that you can get for FREE if you make a qualifying order.  So here’s the scoop on Sale-a-bration for those of you who are new to me.  Sale-a-bration is the best sale of the year!  January 6 – March 31, 2015.  You get to choose one FREE product (from the exclusive Sale-a-bration catalog) for every $50 you spend (before tax & shipping).  No limits!!!!  Sale-A-bration items are totally exclusive to Sale-a-bration – you will not see them in any future catalogs.

Would you like the two new catalogs mailed to you?  Leave a comment in the comment section above and I will mail them right off to you.

 

Dates for Upcoming Classes & Events – RSVP!

By | December 29, 2014

I finally sat down with my calendar, new catalogs & products and figured out the next three months – phew.   No photos yet, but I’m working on them.  I’m really excited to show you what Stampin’ Up! has to offer.  And I’m super excited to share what I learn when I go to Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership conference at the end of January.  Whoo Hoo!

Not listed are dates I have available for workshops/parties and private classes.  I want you to take advantage of all there is & the extra hostess benefits – so let’s book a date where I can come to your house (or you can come to mine) and we can create together.

Only a few days left … don’t miss out!

By | December 28, 2014

Snip20141228_4

Only a few days left to take advantage of the 2014 year-end closeout sale!  So many items on sale – even items that are in the current occasions holiday catalog.  Stock up on products and card kits and use them next year.  If you are smart, you’ll assemble them all in the summer.  Just think how nice that would have been only a week or two ago.  Click HERE to see all the great sales.

Curious about what’s inside the box?

By | December 17, 2014

Snip20141217_4

I received this box today, but I can’t show you what’s inside because it’s filled with all new products from the upcoming Occasions catalog which goes live on January 6.  This is a tease I know.  But, I am able to show you this:

Snip20141217_2It’s the front cover of the new catalog!!!  Do you see that lovely bouquet?  It’s all made out of paper – AND – it’s a kit that you can order to make that same beautiful bouquet.  It’s in my box (and I can wait to put it together) along with many other fabulous kits, new stamp sets, new chalk inks, new embellishments that Stampin’ Up! is offering to us this winter & spring.  It’s such an exciting time to get new things and I want you to get excited to get them too.

Better yet, I want you to earn them instead of buy them.  Let’s plan a workshop for you to host and me to entertain with all of these great new products.  January, February and March are the best times to host a workshop.  Why you ask?  It’s Sale-a-Bration time!!!  For every $50 of products you (or anyone) orders, you get to choose one item out of the exclusive Sale-a-Bration catalog.  Who doesn’t love free paper-crafting products?

Let’s pick a date, invite your friends and get excited to be creative!

I wish I didn’t have so many things to do to get ready for Christmas this week because I would put everything together from the inside box and show you.  But instead, you and me will just have to wait just a little bit longer.  Unless a very nice elf visited my house and did the cleaning, wrapping, baking, shopping and whatever else is on my long list.

Gift Boxes – Santa and Nutcracker Style

By | December 5, 2014

Today’s class features these great Santa and Nutcracker treat boxes.  Aren’t they just awesome!  They were created and designed by my fellow demo friend Gretchen.  The sparkly mustaches really pop and glitter in person.  The coloring is done with the fabulous Blendabilities.   You just have to give them a try because I know you will fall in love.  I even colored the pearls on the crown of Mr. Nutcracker.

photo 6I filled them with chocolates, but you really could fill them with a jar of hot sauce, lotion, cookies and even a gift card.  I am sure you could come up with more gift ideas.

photo 7Don’t wait too long to make your gifts for all those special people in your lives!  You want it to be fun and not stressful, right?

Stamp on your Sick Day

By | November 21, 2014

Last night I received the first photo from my cousin.  It’s her daughter making cards – she was home sick from school.  This photo made me so happy because she was using products she just ordered at her neighbors workshop two weeks ago.  Look how happy she is in the second photo!  I can’t tell you how many people who order things leave them in the box – shameful!  These products are not dust collectors (like those exercise machines in our basements), they are to be used and used often.  No need to create masterpieces, just create something that makes you happy.  And then you will make someone else happy when they receive your homemade love in the mail.  What could be better?

Snip20141121_1Kate busy at work

Snip20141121_2Happy & proud using those stamps, inks, papers and punches.

Snip20141121_4Someone is going to have a happy birthday receiving this beautiful card.

Do you know how to re-ink an ink-pad?

By | November 13, 2014

Sometimes we use a favorite ink pad so much that we need to add some ink back into it.  I noticed that my Coastal Cabana ink has been looking a little on the light side.  It’s one of my fave fave favorites (as my 6 year old niece would say).  Rather than just ink it and be on my way, I thought I would take some photos on how I re-ink it and share it with you.  All you need is your ink pad, a matching re-inker (only $2.95 from Stampin’ Up! – a complete bargain) and an old gift or credit card.

photo 8Here’s my Coastal Cabana ink – looking a little well loved – and the matching re-inker.

photo 11All you need to do is squeeze dots onto and all over the ink pad.

photo 12Using your gift or credit card, swipe the ink dots all over the pad until they are worked in nice, smooth and even.  On a complete side note, looks like I am in need of a manicure – certainly not catalog worthy fingers!

photo 13That’s it – now you have a brand new ink pad in just seconds.  Ready to stamp & create again!
