Cruising, Crafting and Creativity

Announcements/ Join My Team

Hello stampers! The “creeping crud” hit my world with a vengeance and I’m just now slowly feeling human again. Went to the doctor and he said this cough is taking 4-6 weeks to clear up. Now, if I could just hole up and be crafty for that time I’d be hunky dory. Alas, work still calls my nane…lol.

Prior to getting sick I was able to go on a crafting cruise with some of my buds. We enjoyed it so much, one of my downline and I are thinking of planning one ourselves. We had 4 classes on board, with most everything provided by the instructors. We did have to bring scissors and glue, but that was easy peasy.

Here are a few pages from my favorite project, a scrapbook in a box, cruise themed of course.

Cruising, Crafting and CreativityCruising, Crafting and CreativityCruising, Crafting and Creativity

We constructed a platform first and then made this hinged book to go inside. I’m thrilled with the way it turned out. I’m actually going to use this to make a memory album when my husband I and go on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska this July. That trip is also a cruise, through the Inside Passage. We were fortunate to earn this trip in 2011 and it is our favorite cruise yet.

Incentive trips are only part of the “perks” to my “job” as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. When I joined this fabulous company 15 years ago I had no idea these trips would ever be a possibility.

Do you like to craft? Do you spend a fortune at the Big Box stores? Do you like to spend time with other fun peeps sharing your love of stamping and crafting? If so, now might just be the best time to give the Stampin’ Up! business opportunity a closer look.

As you may know, during the months of January, February and March it is Sale-a-Bration time at Stampin’ Up!. Not only can you earn a free stamp set and or other products for each $50 you spend, you can acutally get some pretty great benefits by purchasing the starter kit.

For just $99 plus tax, NO SHIPPING (1st benefit!), you can choose $125 in any products out of the Annual or Occasions catalog…that’s $26 extra in free products. Maybe you need some extra SNAIL Adhesive or there’s a new stamp set still on your wish list. BUT, there’s still more. During Sale-a-Bration you can also choose two free stamp sets of ANY value. If it were me, I’d choose the two most expensive on my list.

In addition to all these great benefits, you get to be a part of my AAA-MAAAA-ZING team, Girls INK. We are a crazy group from all over the country and we have one thing in common…we love to stamp. A few of us have chosen the career plan to make some extra money in addition to saving money. Your choice, turn it into a business or just save money on stuff you buy anyway.

Questions? Email me or give me a call at 214-293-4461 and we’ll chat. Ready to join? Click here and just follow the steps.

Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card

Big Shot/ Die Cut/ Join My Team/ Mojo Monday

Hey stampers! Its seems like most of the cards I’ve been creating lately are for birthdays. Today’s sample, Confetti Celebration Simple Birthday Card, is easy to put together and Stampin’ Up!’s Large Letters make personalization a breeze! I love our Lemon Lime Twist In Color, especially with this Night of Navy Background.

Did you know that you can get these for free along with a ton of other stuff. How?

The CRAZY INSANE sign up special that runs only through July 31. Sign up for $99 and you get $125.00 worth of merchandise, at LEAST $100 worth of business supplies (if you want to try it out – includes eight brand new catalogs!), an Essentials Kit with five terrific tools valued at $52 and a sneak peek stamp set from the Holiday Catalog – worth $20. It costs you more NOT to get this deal than it does to get it! 🙂

If you do grab up this offer, you will be an official demonstrator on August 1 which means…………wait for it………….…………you get to preorder available products from the Holiday Catalog ON August 1 right along with all the other demos!

Yes, I have had a lot of people sign up – the deal is just too TIGGERIFFIC to pass up . In case you are wondering, NO, you do NOT have to start a business if you don’t want to.  Many people sign up  “just for the discount”  (did I mention that you get 20% off everything in the catalog as long as you are a demo?)  but decide later to actually run a business..  I was actually one of those “kit-nappers” but now I am a proud Stampin’ Up! business owner and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

Coffee Café Bundle ala Pool Party

Announcements/ Big Shot/ Join My Team/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Videos

Hey stampers! We are making changes to the blog and have run into a couple of snags. Didn’t get to post yesterday but enjoy today’s Coffee Café Bundle ala Pool Party sample! One of my favorite color combos is brown and blue. Stampin’ Up! has several of these tones from which to choose, but Pool Party and Early Espresso are still two of my favorites!

This is a simple card, but the coordinating Designer Series Paper and Ribbon certainly add the “pretty” factor!

Watch short video that shows you some fun tips and tricks for using this bundle!

Below I’ve included instructions, including cutting dimensions, for today’s project. You can order any of the products used for this project by clicking a picture below.

Supplies:

  • Stamp Sets: Coffee Cafe (143677)
  • Inks: Early Espresso (126974), Crumb Cake (126975) & Pool, Party (126982) Classic Stampin’ Pads
  • Paper: Crumb Cake (120953), Early Espresso (119686) & Whisper White (100730) Card stock; Coffee Break Designer Series Paper (144155)
  • Accessories: 5/8” Burlap Ribbon (141487), Soft Sky 3/8” Classic Weave Ribbon (144160)
  • Other: SNAIL Adhesive (104332) OR Fast Fuse Adhesive (129026), Big Shot (143263), Coffee Cups Framelits (143745), Stitched Shapes Framelits (145372), Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122234), Stampin’ Trimmer (126889), Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

Measurements:

  • Crumb Cake: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored and folded at 4-1/4”
  • Coffee Break DSP: 5-1/4” x 4” (make sure that you cut it so that the chevron pattern runs down the front of the card)
  • Early Espresso: 3-1/2” x 3-1/2”
  • Whisper White: 2 x 5-1/4” x 4” (one for the inside of the card, and the second for stamping/die cutting)
  • Burlap and Soft Sky Ribbons: 5” for each piece

Instructions:

    1. Using the Pool Party ink, stamp the wood grain cup image on Whisper White cardstock. Leaving space between the images, stamp the cup lid on the same piece of cardstock, using Crumb Cake ink. Stamp the frame image using Crumb Cake ink, and the sentiment inside of the stamped frame using Early Espresso ink.
    2. Using your Big Shot and the Coffee Cups Framelits, die cut the cup, lid and wrapper. Using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, die cut a circle from the Early Espresso card stock.
    3. Glue the wrapper to the cup, and the lid to the cup using SNAIL or Fast Fuse adhesive.
    4. Wrap the Soft Sky ribbon around the Coffee Break DSP, about 1” above the bottom of the paper, and glue on the back. Wrap the Burlap ribbon overtop, leaving about 2/3” of the Soft Sky showing on the bottom, adhering them on the back. *Note* Fast Fuse is a good adhesive for this so that you’re sure that they don’t come off.
    5. Using your Paper Trimmer, cut about 1/2” off of one side of the Early Espresso circle. Adhere the circle to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the stamped coffee cup to the Early Espresso circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
    6. Stamp the coffee bean image 3 times in the bottom right corner of the other piece of Whisper White cardstock. Glue to the inside of the card.

For every $50 you spend July 1-31 (before tax and shipping) you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days Coupon that you can use during August! Shop now.
