A Stamper To Remember

Last Day to Sale-a-brate

Filed under: Projects — March 31, 2017 @ 7:19 am

All good things must come to an end, including Sale-A-Bration (SAB).  Stampin’ Up! outdid itself this year with some great stamp sets and accessories.  Some were so popular that they sold out.

Today is the last day, so if there is something you missed…Tasty Trucks, Hey Chick…head on over to my website.  While you are there, sign up for my newsletter too.

And if you want the best bargain, while you are there click on JOIN THE FUN to find out how you can get 2 free stamp sets of your choice – today is the last day!

SAB Team

If 2 free stamp sets and free shipping on your starter kit aren’t enough to entice you – how about another free set after your first quarter?  Stampin’ Up! just announced a program for new demonstrators during SAB called Ready Set Earn.  And if you don’t like the idea of “selling”,  there is no obligation – you can join for a hobby to get the discount.  There are lots of perks you can still enjoy as a hobby demonstrator, and even more if you decide to step it up and run a business.  Contact me if you have any questions.  I love to share what I love.

Happy Crafting,

Best Stampin’ Up! Deal

free stamp sets SUfun

The best Stampin’ Up! deal is always the demonstrator starter kit.  And even more so during Sale-A-Bration (ending March 31).  I’d love to have you on my team!

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is our quarterly magazine. I copied this layout from a recent issue and used one of the Sale-A-Bration freebies, the Carried Away Designer Series Paper.


Today’s Tips:

Strips cut into banners makes your paper last a long time!

Add baker’s twine and a clip for an easy card.

The Double Take Stamp set allows you to use 2 colors on one sentiment for a fun shading effect.

Don’t forget – Mint Macaron is RETIRING (sob)!

I like how the Stampin’ Up! concept artist tilted the sentiment for a different look.  Don’t you wish you could be paid to stamp all day!

A torn panel of Watercolor Paper makes a great background.

Hey Chick Mother’s Day Card

Filed under: Projects — March 24, 2017 @ 8:05 am

The Stampin’ Up! Hey Chick stamp set is only available until March 31, so I wanted to share this cute idea for a Mother’s Day Card.  Again, I use That’s The Tag  for the greeting.  It’s such a versatile bundle!


Today’s Tip:

-Make a little grass and/or dirt for your chicks with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen so they are not floating in mid air.

And don’t forget, Sale-A-Bration ends soon!

That’s the Tag bundle

Filed under: Projects — March 23, 2017 @ 9:41 am

That’s the Tag is a great bundle of stamps and framelits.  It’s easy to overlook in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog, but it is so versatile!  It comes with a ton of great sentiments and tag shapes to make tags, cards or page embellishments.

Here are a few more cards I made with this bundle.

Glimmer Paper gone – dye your own!

Filed under: Projects — March 20, 2017 @ 11:50 am


Did you miss out on the Glimmer Paper Pack that I featured earlier this month?

Here’s a way to make your own glimmer paper in any Stampin’ Up! color that you want!

Take a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Put some ink refill in the top of the inkpad and sponge onto your Glimmer Paper.  (If you sponge directly from your inkpad, it will get a bit glittery).

You can also dye the Metallic Ribbon (another great Sale-a-Bration item which is still in stock at the moment).  Just pull a piece of ribbon over your inkpad while pressing down with your bone folder).  So easy!  And this ribbon is gorgeous.  The photos don’t do it justice.  It is soft and easy to tie.

Today’s Tip:

Fray the edges of the ribbon slightly – you can see the sparkly metallic threads.

Better get it soon, before it is gone like the glimmer paper – my website shop.
