Moments Like These

June 30th, 2015 by craftdoc

The theme for the latest Project Life by Stampin’ Up! contest is picturing the every day.  My everyday right now is the few weeks between my son’s college graduation and his moving away across the country for his new job.  I wanted to take a few pictures of how our house looks right now during the transition.   I used some photo tips from Becky Higgins in this blog post.   Unfortunately my printer is only printing the top half of the photos.  Solution – use the blank bottom half for journaling!  I used the Happy Times Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Card Collection for this quick page to remember this time in my life.  The beauty of Project Life – I can always come back later and reprint the photos, and just slip them in the pockets.  #PLxSUMomentsLikeThese  #PLxSU  #stampinup

Sprinkles of Life

June 26th, 2015 by craftdoc

***Just a few more days to get your 2 free stamp sets (Join the Fun).

***Coming June 30 – Updated Clearance Rack (60% off) and Weekly Deals (30%) off.

Here is another card we made at the June class.   Sprinkles of Life and the matching punch are proving to be a top seller for Stampin’ Up!  And, $3 from the sale of each stamp set will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Check it out at my website SHOP.

Today’s Tips:

-The silver lining sentiment would be great for a “get well” or “thinking of you” card.

-I silver embossed the clouds before cutting with the punch.  And used some silver glimmer paper for the banner.

-The banner triple punch is awesome – it cut both banners here.


Congratulations Graduates

June 22nd, 2015 by craftdoc

****Just a few more days to get your 2 free stamp sets – JOIN THE FUN.

The Bravo stamp set is excellent for congratulating the graduates or others in your life or just to send a word of encouragement.  Here I paired with 2 new in colors – TipTop Taupe and Mint Macaron.

Today’s Tips:

-Make the front panel a removable bookmark (Scalloped Tag Topper Punch) by adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to 3 sides of the bookmark, not touching it.

-Here I added Petite Petals punched flowers to the dimensionals to hold on the bookmark.

-Add a bit of the new In Color Lace and a Star embossed panel.

All products available at my website SHOP.


Cucumber Crush Latch Card

June 17th, 2015 by craftdoc

Cucumber Crush (new In Color) was a hit at my class this week.  I paired it with Pacific Point to make this latch card with the Amazing Birthday stamp set.

Today’s Tips:

– Cut and score the card as usual, then cut off 1″ from the front panel.  On the back panel, make 3 score lines just next to the edge of the front panel.  This will help the card to flex.  Place a Stampin’ Dimensional just to the right of the score lines.   Then add your circle accent.

-Products are all Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased at my online SHOP.



Sprinkles of Life

June 10th, 2015 by craftdoc

The new Ronald McDonald House Charities stamp set is proving to be very popular.  Sprinkles of Life plus the matching punch can be used for trees, clouds, ice cream and more!

Today’s Tips:

-Use the new envelope liner paper to line the envelopes and add a strip to the card.

-Check out the new In Colors and matching ribbon.

All supplies can be purchased at my website SHOP.

Watermelon Wonder

May 27th, 2015 by craftdoc

Watermelon Wonder is one of our luscious new In Colors.  Here’s a card featuring the cardstock, envelope liner paper and lace trim as well as the Sweetheart and Heart Border Punches.  I used the Hello Life stamp set and a rhinestone too.  The new In Colors are available June 2.


Gardening Season

May 26th, 2015 by craftdoc

My posts are always a bit lower this time of year.  We had so much snow and cold weather, that it is a real pleasure to get outside and catch up on the yard work.  Here are some berry baskets I made a while back with the Berry Basket Die for the Big Shot.

Today’s Tips:

-Use the Kraft paper to make the baskets.  It’s a bit sturdier than the Crumb Cake Cardstock.

-This basket is sooo easy to put together.  Just add the top strip with the Handheld Stapler by Stampin’ Up!

-The Berry Basket die, the bow builder punch and the Handpicked Framelit dies will all be carried over into the new catalog June 2.  BUT, the From the Garden stamp set will not.  You can purchase all these Stampin’ Up! supplies at my website shop.

-Don’t forget that Paper Pumpkin is 50% off for new subscribers.  Here’s the promo code SAVE50 and here’s my link.  Don’t miss out on the next great kit.  Super fun for summer time and traveling.



Masculine Cards Part 3

May 19th, 2015 by craftdoc

Here is the third card in our series from the May Card Class.  Again, this would make a great graduation card.

Today’s Tips:

-Tear a piece of Vellum Cardstock and use White Embossing powder and the Adventure Awaits stamp set (RETIRING THIS MONTH).

-Attach 2 panels to a scrap panel that is 4″ by 5-1/4″.  Here I used a 1-1/2″ piece of Adventure Bound DSP (also retiring) and a 2-1/2″ piece of Early Espresso cardstock, run through the Big Shot with the woodgrain embossing folder.

-Now you can attach the vellum with the silver mini brads and the back will be hidden when you adhere the panel to the card base – Here Basic Gray.


All supplies are by Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased at my website SHOP.
