A Stamper To Remember

Share What You Love

Filed under: Projects — June 18, 2018 @ 12:48 pm

I found a few more samples using products from the “Share What You Love” Suite.  In celebration of Stampin’ Up 30th Anniversary, the pearlized paper and other accessories are just gorgeous.  These laser cut labels are from the embellishment kit.  The kit comes in a pretty keepsake box too!

New In Colors

Filed under: Projects — June 13, 2018 @ 2:17 pm

I finally finished my card series for the new In Colors.  These vibrant colors are perfect for summer projects.  Details about this card layout are in this post.  A Designer Series Paper sale is coming in July, but it does not include this In Color DSP, so go ahead and pick up the ribbon, paper, cardstock, ink and markers today at my shop.  Be sure you are subscribed to my newsletter to catch the details of the July sale.

Even an old favorite like Daisy Delight looks fresh when you add some new colors to the mix (Shaded Spruce and Mango Melody along with returning Melon Mambo and Night of Navy).  This is just one of the cards for my next class. Update your color collection at my website shop – see links below.

Happy New Stampin’ Year!

Filed under: Projects — June 4, 2018 @ 12:47 pm


How many of you have had time to look through the new catalog?  What are your favorite new products?  My customers should have received one from me in the mail.  If you didn’t get one, contact me.  You can also get the pdf HERE and of course see all the products HERE in the store.

The only items not available at the moment are the new colors in Stampin’ Blends.  The older colors ARE now available again after a long backorder.  They have been very popular!

One of my favorite new sets is Animal Outing.  I have been busy with yard work, now that it is finally spring here in Erie.  But back in April when we still had snow, I went to a crop and used this fun set and my Stampin’ Blends to create card panels.  As you can see, I have yet to make them into cards – but that is a project for another day.

Animal Outing

Today’s Tips:

Stampin’ Blends come in 2 colors for perfect shading.

You can purchase the Animal Outing stamps and matching dies separately or together as a bundle for 10% off.  Click on the images below to get to my shop.

I was given this set at the last Stampin’ Up! OnStage.  You can go to fun meetings and get a discount on all your new products too.  So if your shopping list is long – just Join the Fun!

Stitched All Around

Filed under: Projects — May 29, 2018 @ 2:15 pm

The Stitched All Around bundle is one that demonstrators can preorder.  The dies make beautiful labels.  I can’t wait to see what everyone makes with these.  I like to showcase the new In Colors each year with a set of 5 monochromatic cards.  Here is what I have done so far with a fun layout that also looks good turned 90 degrees.

stitched all around

I used 2 punches – Banner Triple and the new Detailed Trio to round 2 corners. The DSP is 3 x 4-3/4 so you can get 2 out of each 6×6 piece.  You might also note the new ribbon in all 5 colors.  This set of new colors is so fun and vibrant – be sure to visit my store after June 1, 2pm mountain time to get in your first order.  Or sign up today and you can add them to your preorder like I did!

We had such a short spring, that I’ve been spending most of my free time catching up on yard work, rather than crafting. Maybe next week I can finish the other 3 colors!

This weekend is our local demonstrators Annual Crafty Garage Sale.  If you are not far from Erie, PA, come and check it out.  Pick up your  beautiful new catalog too!

Happy crafting,

Favorite Layout

Filed under: Projects — May 22, 2018 @ 2:07 pm

Here’s a favorite card layout of mine using the beautiful new Share What You Love Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up.  You can get 9 cards out of one 12×12 sheet with this versatile layout!

IMG_2456 love what you do

Today’s Tips:

First cut the DSP into 4×4 squares.  You can just eyeball a diagonal cut.  Or measure a dot equal distance from each side and cut between.  Here I used 3/4 inches (one inch or 1-1/4″ also work well).  I placed a doily and sentiments on top of the gap.  This layout also looks great if you stamp a sentiment directly on the cardstock between the DSP sections.

Right now you can purchase these products as a bundle at my shop.  Starting on June 1, they can be purchased individually.

Did you get your beautiful new catalog yet?  I will post a link on June 1, but if you are my customer and want a mailed copy, contact me.  Be sure you are subscribed to my newsletter too.

***FRIDAY MAY 25 is the last day that retiring stamp sets are guaranteed to be available to order.  Don’t miss out on favorites like Rose Wonder and Magical Day!

Share What You Love

I have some more cards to share with you using the beautiful Share What You Love suite of products.  The best part about getting these as an early release, are the freebies that you can get in the various bundles.  Check them out at my shop.

These 2 cards were CASED from my friend and team member Brenda.  You can check out her blog here.  We had fun making these cards at our last craft retreat.  This is a perfect time for you to join my team as well.  You get to start off with a brand new annual catalog and choose new products in your kit.  Check it out here.

Love What You Do

Filed under: Projects — May 14, 2018 @ 2:42 pm

My Card Class tomorrow will feature the Love What You Do stamp set and the early release bundles from the Share What You Love Suite.  My favorite part of this suite is the beautiful pearlized designer paper.  Instructions for these class cards are free for anyone who purchases from me this month.

Share What you Love class

Today’s tip:

If you have a bunch of little die cuts, or in this case fussy cut flowers, that you have arranged just so – how do you adhere to your project without losing your placement? To the rescue – Press N Seal. Just lay a small piece across your arrangement, pick it up and add liquid glue to the back, then place. Carefully remove Press N Seal.

Love What You Do, Stampin' Up

Check out the early release bundles that are available only in May at my shop.  Don’t forget the clearance rack and the Last Chance Products.

Barn Door

Filed under: Projects — May 11, 2018 @ 4:12 pm

The Barn Door stamp set and Sliding Door Framelit Dies have been favorites with my customers.  I’m so glad they will carry over into the new Annual Catalog (although not at the discounted bundle price).   Here are a few tips for making a slider card.

IMG_2223 Barn Door

Watch the video below to see how to assemble the card with washers.  I have also seen people use buttons or pennies.  For my card above, I used rectangles of Window Sheet.  The door still slides nicely and it is much lighter.  Cut 4 pieces of window sheet 1/2″ x 2″.  Sandwich a piece of adhesive strip between each pair and attach to the door.  They slip easily into the die cut slots (add your stamped panel first).

IMG_2221 Barn Door

Just add a few more strips of the adhesive strips and mount on a card base.  It’s pretty easy to complete, and fun to decorate with the different wreath stamps.

IMG_2222 Barn Door

Above is another card I made with the Barn Door Bundle.  The insides of this trifold card use the Waterfront stamp set to make a  scene.


I hope you enjoy the Barn Door bundle as much as I have.  The clickable links are below.  And check out my store for last chance retiring products and some nice clearance items.  Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter too.

Charming Cafe

ADDED:  Several of the retiring Die sets just went on sale, including Cafe Builder.  Check out the Last Chance Discounts at my shop.

The last couple weeks of the Stampin’ Up! Occasions and Annual catalogs are winding down.  Here’s a fun retiring bundle that might not have caught your attention yet.  The Charming Cafe stamp set and Cafe Builder Framelits make a fun trifold card.  Just look at the sweet table setting and window in this set.

I’m also giving some last love to Sweet Sugarplum which is a retiring In Color.  It is a nice pink, almost purple depending on the color combo and lighting.

Today’s Tips:

-The framelit opening is not bidirectional, so make sure you cut it from the front side (unlike my sample).

-Choose your lightest Stampin’ Write markers for coloring.
