All My Love

Filed under: Projects — January 16, 2019 @ 4:02 pm

I used the All My Love product suite yet again on these 3 cards of a similar layout.  This suite is perfect for Valentine’s Day, but also projects for anniversaries, weddings and friendship.

Stampin' Up, Meant to be, all my love

Stampin' Up, Meant to be, all my love

I love the variation in color you get with the new DistINKtive stamps, especially the hearts in the first card.  And I can’t get enough of the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  I used it on almost all my samples posted this month,  in my last class (18 cards), and I still have some left from my pack.  What great value!

Today’s Tip:  Cut the 12×12 paper in 4 inch strips, then trim again to desired size to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Anyone want an extra $50 in free Stampin’ Up! product?  As always, the Stampin’ Up! starter kit is the best deal, especially during Sale-a-bration!  You could get everything in this suite to play with too.

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson

Meant To Be

Filed under: Projects — January 12, 2019 @ 10:15 am

The Meant to Be stamp set and coordinating Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies were at the top of my shopping list from the new Occasions catalog.  This bundle will be useful for all sorts of occasion, not just Valentine’s Day.

Would you like to see my thought process for creating?

I started out to CASE the catalog picture above because I love the combination with the new Lace Dynamic Textured Embossing folder.  I played with some different colors and papers, including the free Sale-abration foils and ribbon.  After laying out different combinations, I started adhering my favorites into these 2 cards.

And here are the final results.

Today’s Tip: Add a stitched scallop border to a small panel with one of the dies.  Here I used a foil piece and a piece of gingham designer series paper.

Why not try this great layout too?  You can click on the photos below to see more about the individual products I used.

And the best way to get them at a discount is to Join the Fun during Sale-A-Bration.

All My Love

Filed under: Projects — January 8, 2019 @ 3:20 pm

I have a few Valentine’s Day projects under my belt using the Stampin’ Up!  All My Love Suite.

I just love this suite of products because it includes 2 awesome bundles of stamps with dies (Forever Lovely, Meant to be).  As well as a gorgeous Designer Series Paper and more (see clickable product list below).

I chose the 3 projects below for my January card class.  These are also available as tutorial pdfs as well as a bonus pdf with photos of all the other cards.  I’ll send one free pdf if you sign up for my newsletter (link on side), all 4 if you make a purchase from my website shop.  My CardClass pdfs are also free to members of my team if you would like to Join the Fun during Sale-A-Bration.  Or you can Buy now for just $5.

All My Love Suite, Stampin Up, Forever Lovely, Meant To be, Valentine's Day cards

I had a hard time deciding which side of the paper to use for the Eclipse Card, so I made both!

Stampin Up, Meant To Be, Valentine's Day card

Today’s Tip:  Use Foam Adhesive Strips to attach the Designer Paper Heart.  The higher dimension (that you can’t really see in the photo) is what makes a good Eclipse card.

The Free Foil sheets I showed in my last post are my favorite Sale-A-Bration freebie.  They go so well with the All my Love Suite, for example these treat pouches above.  And don’t forget to grab a Prepaid subscription to Paper Pumpkin (AND APPLY YOUR CODE) before the 10th if you want the fun kit below for Valentine’s Day featuring Animal Expedition.  EDITED:  The 10th has passed, but I have a couple extra kits if you missed out!

Happy crafting,

Happy Sale-A-Bration!

Filed under: Projects — January 3, 2019 @ 8:50 am

This is the day we begin celebrating new papercrafting products and freebies for everyone!  This sale is always the highlight of the Stampin’ Up! year and this year is one of the best ever. I’m most excited about the extra $50 in free product of your choice that you can get in the demonstrator starter kit (details here).   There are also some great stamp sets, papers and ribbons that customers can get for free with each $50 in orders.  And let’s not forget our hosts – an extra $25 in freebies!  Ask me for a host code and let’s get you started.

My top pick for an SAB freebie is the Foil Sheets.  You get 4 each of the 2 colors and they are so shiny and fun!

Here’s a quick Valentine’s Day card using both foil colors layered.  You get a rainbow iridescence with the grapefruit grove foil.  I embossed it with one of the new folders.  New rectangle stitched dies – yay!

You can check out all the new products at my shop.    But the best deal right now is the starter kit.  And it’s the only way to get this great craft tote (while supplies last).  I’d love to help you get started!

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson

Happy New Year!

Sale-A-Bration doesn’t begin until January 3, but while you are waiting, why not work on crafting plans for 2019?  I love the Stampin’ Up! planner.  I started mine today, but it can begin anytime – you fill in the dates.   I use half of each day for my devotions and half for my appointments and to do list.  It’s easily adapted to your own schedule.  You can get the new planner here, or check out the clearance rack for an older version.

In the background you can see some Valentine’s Day projects with new products that I will share soon.

Have you made up your Day by Day Paper Pumpkin kit?  I have a few extras if you missed it.

I wanted to hang it on my screen, so made it per instructions (except for leaving off the labels).  I have seen many other variations making it an easel style or making cards with the individual pages.

I hope you had a lovely holiday.  Thanks for supporting my home business in 2018!

Happy crafting,

Treat Holders

Filed under: Projects — December 31, 2018 @ 1:46 pm

Year in Review – It was hard to pick out my favorite posts from 2018, but I can’t pass up my travels.  Stampin’ Up! trips are my favorite part of being a demonstrator.  All demonstrators can attend the twice a year OnStage meeting, and the annual Incentive trip (last year an Alaska cruise) can be earned by sales and leadership.

I thought I had already published this draft about Christmas Treat Holders…but oh well here it is now.  The ideas are also good for Valentine’s Day – the next major holiday for giving treats.  And we have some lovely new designer series papers available starting Jan. 3 just right for the occasion.  But if you want any of the Christmas papers – they are only available until Jan 2, as is the punch I used.  Here is the link to the Year-End Closeout Sale.

Here are instructions from a previous post.

Here’s another treat holder using the Seasonal Chums stamp set.

Some Valentine’s Day treats are in the works, more details to come.

Grab some packaging for your own treat holders here at my shop.

And if you are interested in the next Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip – this year we are working to earn  MAUI!  Contact me for details and I’ll help you get started.

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson




Stampin’ Up! Christmas Thank You Cards

Filed under: Projects — December 26, 2018 @ 10:10 am

Perhaps a thank you card is due after some nice gifts were received yesterday?  Here’s an easy card we made at my last class.

I thought that the inside sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set would be especially appropriate if you received a sweater or other item of clothing!

Sign up for my newsletter or make any purchase from my website store and I’ll send you the pdf instruction sheets from my last class.

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson

Winter Woods

Filed under: Projects — December 20, 2018 @ 4:58 pm

Winter Woods was one of the most popular bundles in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  It’s nice for the holidays or for all year round depending on the colors and sentiment that you use.

Here are a few simple layouts I made with leftover scraps of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and cardstock.

The discounted bundle is only available until January 2. The stamp set and framelit dies will both carry over into next year, but not at the bundle price. While you are shopping, check out the year-end sale and the Clearance Rack – both with some nice discounts too!

My last class of the year is over, so I will be enjoying some holiday traditions with my family this weekend.  I’ll be back soon with more fun crafting projects.  If you get some Christmas cash this year, you may want to consider joining my team on January 3.  It’s the start of Sale-A-Bration, Stampin’ Ups biggest promotion of the year and you won’t want to miss all the extras.  Contact me now for details, or stay tuned.

Merry Christmas and…

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson
