Inside Look at Stampin’ Up! DSP Creation

Customer Q & A/ Stamping/ Videos

Hey Stampers! If you've been around Stampin' Up! for any time at all, you know we have some of the most beautiful patterned paper; otherwise known as Designer Series Paper. I truly think the paper in our 2018-2019 catalog is the best we've ever produced. One of my favorites is Petal Promenade.  Did you ever wonder how the designers come up with their paper ideas? Today I wanted to give you an inside look at Stampin' Up! DSP Creation; it is really an interesting process!

The photographs in our Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper are more than just a “look”—real flowers were used! Talented Product Designer and Specialist, Kaitlyn Zumbach, used floral arrangements with technology to design this paper. You’ll be blown away be the entire process!

Pretty cool, huh?!

Here's a project idea with one of the sheets in the pack. Each sheet is double-sided and you get 2 of each one!

Project instructions follow after picture; enjoy!

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Online Classes/ Videos

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!  This is going to be a bit of a nostalgic week for me! Our oldest grandcherub graduates from high school this Saturday! Where has the time gone?  Anyone else taking trips down memory lane with graduates?

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!

This kid and I used to put on our yellow raincoats to go outside and splash in puddles. Now he'll be putting on a cap and gown to march across the stage to collect his diploma! His “Poppa” and I are proud of the young man he has become and are looking forward to the path God has for him.

Of course I had to make his graduation card! I made a few extra, too since I have a lot of friends whose kiddos are also making the “graduation march”!

Memories Then and Now; In the Blink of an Eye!

The backgrounds for all these cards were done with Brusho Color Crystals. This is such a fun and easy product to use. I taught an online class in which I stepped through several projects and gave lots of tips and techniques. If you missed the live class,  you can still purchase the recording.

My next online class, coming up on June 20th, will feature 2 “fancy fold” cards; you'll also learn to make gift bags that require no measuring or cutting!

Learn to “Brusho” Like a Pro!

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Online Classes/ Videos

Hey Stampers! Let's face it; learning a new skill can be intimidating. Remember when you were a kid and were taking your first spin around the block on that shiny new bicycle? C'mon, admit it…you were afraid of falling off. It might hurt! But, I  bet with mom, dad, or older sibling's help you learned how to ride like a pro, despite a few tumbles! We're past the cycling days (well, at least on our pink Schwinns of old) but we still can  get intimidated learning a new technique or mastering a new product. Take Brusho Color Crystals for instance. Have you  seen this product in the  Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog and flip right on by? In my latest class, Brusho Artistry, you'll Learn to “Brusho” Like a Pro!

I find many of my customers get unnerved when they begin to watercolor. Getting “messy” and using a technique which often turns out differently each time presents a challenge for them. if you find yourself in this boat from time to time, it doesn't have to be that way. I can help you become the “watercolor artist” of your dreams! 🙂

Here are snippets of some of the projects I'll be teaching.

Learn to "Brusho" Like a Pro!

I know you will come away from class loving the Brusho Color Crystals as much as  I do!
