Since Stamp Slave Dave and I will be leaving next week for our all expenses paid trip to Alaska (just one of the awesome benefits that can be yours as a demonstrator!), I wanted to be sure you know about these specials.

Here is a quick peek at our itinerary.

July is HOT HOT HOT...Miss It NOT NOT NOT!

Depending on the ship's internet, I hope to be posting a lot about our Alaskan adventures. We will be whale watching, helicoptering to a glacier and taking a train through the Yukon. That's in addition to all the pampering by Stampin' Up! onboard the ship.  Stay tuned…we're excited to share with you all!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Announcements/ Paper crafting

Hey Stampers!  Is there a new little “star” coming into your world soon? Maybe a friend's baby, maybe a grandchild? I'm so excited to share this adorable card made with the Sweet Baby stamp set and Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. While this card is for a baby boy, just stamp/color the baby image with Petal Pink and use Petal Pink Cardstock and you've got a baby girl card! The Soft Sea Foam circle works just fine for either, too!

Of course, you could easily slip a gift card into the opening instead of cash.

Twinkle Twinkle is one of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) packs that will be part of Stampin' Up!'s July sale. During the entire month, buy 3, get one free of the DSP shown below.

What’s Inside My Mystery Boxes?

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Paper crafting

Hey stampers! Would you like to know what's inside my mystery boxes? Take a look below:

What's Inside My Mystery Boxes?

My local BOGO shoppers left some bargains on the table, so it's your turn to score some great stuff! Here's how it all works:

I have two different sizes of boxes, medium and large. The medium sized box will sell for $50 and will include at least $80 of product. The large sized box will sell for $100 and will include at least $150 of product. Each box will also have 5 hand-stamped cards inside.

I will stuff each box full of stamp sets, ink pads, embellishments, ribbon, cardstock, patterned paper, die-cuts, punches, and other crafting items. As with my BOGO, some items will be used, some will be new. Most will be Stampin' Up! but I also have some Tim Holtz, Spellbinders, and other brands!

Each box will have different items and I only have a limited supply. Once they are gone, they're gone!
All sales are final and SHIPPING IS FREE!! Just click on link below to order your box. Questions? Please email me at anne@stampmaven.com.

Today’s Color Combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black

Paper crafting/ Stamping

Happy Friday Stampers! Hope everyone had a great week and are looking forward to some fun weekend days! I know I sure am. I am lucky to be able to wear jeans to work, and I am a little or no makeup kind of a girl. But, I sure do love one of the new Stampin' Up! Colors, Lovely Lipstick. I wonder if I could use a q-tip and reinker and USE it for lipstick…NOT! Anyhoo, today's color combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black. For some reason, I've always thought pinks and blues look fabulous on cards with just a pop of black!

Today's Color Combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black

I think this weekend I'll make up a few sets of this card in different colors. Put 6 with matching envelopes into a clear acetate box, tie up with some ribbon, and you've got a great gift! Instructions below in case you'd like to make some, too!

  3. Adhere a piece of ribbon to each of the two 2 1/8” x 1 1/2” pieces of Whisper White CS, and wrap it around to the back, using Tear & Tape. (I like to fold the tape in half, or twirl it into a string, for something skinny like this ribbon.)
  4. Tie a small piece of ribbon in a bow around the ribbon on one of the Whisper White CS pieces.
  5. Glue the two pieces of Whisper White CS over the two DSP layers.
  6. Cut an oval from the scrap of Basic Black CS using the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
