Eastern Palace

I thought you might like to see closeups of my 3 Eastern Palace Class cards.

The instruction sheet is free if you purchase the bundle from me (along with a free Host set that I will mail you).  Or you can get it at my ETSY shop.

There is only a few days left to get the Premier bundle with the free Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock and envelopes.  After June 1 you can get everything individually.  Did you get your new catalog yet?  I’m mailing them to everyone that makes a purchase from my online store and signs up for my newsletter.

Happy crafting,

Beautiful You

Filed under: Projects — May 22, 2017 @ 3:28 pm

It’s about time I posted my Beautiful You samples.  The stamp set will carry over to the new catalog, but some of the accessories I used will retire.   This popular stamp is versatile for many occasions and techniques.  There are more Beautiful You cards in this post.

Today’s Tips:

-To make multiples of the last card, use a 12×12 sheet of the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  Cut 3″ strips one way.  Then cut  4-1/2″ pieces.  The last shorter pieces you can use to stamp the dress and hat to fussy cut and add over the stamped image on the white panel.  This technique is called Paper Piecing.

-FREE WITH ANY PURCHASE from me – In May, using host code 26JA9K93 – A sampler of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and lace doilies – both have sold out and are no longer available!  Order over $75 and I’ll also send you the Love You Lots hostess stamp set.  Order over $150 and keep the Stampin’ Rewards for yourself – I’ll still send you the freebies.

-Check out the Eastern Premier bundle below – the May special from Stampin’ Up!

I have a special offer this week just for newsletter subscribers.  So be sure you are on my mailing list.

Here is another batch of Eastern Palace cards.

This is a CASE of a card I saw somewhere.  I just used a 4″ wide piece of the metallic sheets to save on paper, since you only get one sheet of each.  Gold, gold and more gold!  The tassels and paper come in the bundle.

I went a little crazy with the diecuts in this card.  There are so many options!

Lemon-Lime Twist is starting to grow on me.

Be sure to choose the premier bundle (the starter bundle does not have the dies).

Eastern Palace cards.  These were done just with the stamps.  It’s fun how the little pieces can go together in so many ways.

But you know you want the thinlit dies too.  This card was made by my friend Ellen for the last Stampin’ Up! OnStage meeting.

I can’t get enough of the Eastern Palace bundle.  Here are just a few of the fun medallions you can make using 2 or 3 of the dies in combination.

National Scrapbooking Day

National Scrapbooking Day

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!  I hope you got to do something creative today.  In our area it has been raining for days non-stop – perfect weather for inside crafting.  Otherwise I would be out working in the yard today!

Check out my Facebook page for a Virtual Crop event – I’d love to see your projects.  Here’s what I made today – an Ice Cream Sandwich Mini-Album.

IMG_0640craftdoc ice cream minialbum

The directions for making the box can be found on  It was designed to fit candy and a gift card, but I decided to make an accordian fold mini-album.  I had room for some photos and memorabilia from my last Stampin’ Up! meeting, OnStage 2017.

IMG_0642craftdoc ice cream minialbum

Here is the open box and the cover of the album.  The belly band is stamped with the Cool Treats set in some of the new In Colors.  For the album I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it at 5-1/2 inches the long way.  I scored every 2-1/2 inches and cut off the last little piece.  That gave me 4 panels, one of which I adhered to the bottom of the box.

IMG_0643craftdoc ice cream minialbum

I had 4 pages for the inside of the album….

IMG_0644craftdoc ice cream minialbum

and 2 pages left for pictures on the back.  I printed some wallet sized photos, cropped and journaled.  I kept the inside very simple, but I can go back and add some embellishments later.  I’m thinking some of the popsicles (stamped off) over the journaling and maybe some of the new In Color accents (when my preorder gets here next week).

And a few more cards with the endless possibilities of the Eastern Palace Bundle.

Today’s Tips:

-add the Eastern Palace gold stickers and tassels for easy bling.  Some gold ribbon won’t hurt too.

-Give yourself enough space for the die cut panel when you add the bottom sticker in the last card (unlike mine).  These stickers are gorgeous, but NOT repositionable.

-Click on the thumbnail below to see everything included in the Eastern Palace All Inclusive Bundle. With this bundle and the gold ribbon, you are set for weeks of creating!

-Use host code QPZJV62Y to get the instructions for 6 cards and  a gift from me.

I have been going crazy creating with the Eastern Palace Premier Bundle by Stampin’ Up!.   If you think this bundle is “not your style”, I want to show a couple cards I made that are a totally different style just by using different colors or using the stamps and framelits in different ways.  The first 2 cards were inspired by Brenda.

IMG_0604craftdoc eastern palace

IMG_0598craftdoc eastern palace

The next 2 cards were inspired by Cheryl (using Sweet Sugarplum) and Lyssa (double stamping on last card).   The circle stamps and white accents add additional interest.
