Junk Journaling Part 2 With Guest Blogger Debbie Johnson

Customer Q & A/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Tuesday everyone! I had planned to get this post out a little earlier but Halloween and my youngest grandcherub's birthday happened! We had a great time doing “social distancing” trick or treating in her neighborhood.

But enough of grandma aka Gee bragging. 🙂

I'm so excited to share Part 2 of Debbie's Junk Journal information with you today. She shares the two parts of the junk journal, the cover and “signatures” and how to actually create a cover.

I think you'll be surprised to learn about the signatures; it might not be what you think it is!

How To Put Christmas Lights in a Wine Bottle

Customer Q & A/ Holidays / Special Days

Hey everyone! So glad you popped in for a look today! Every year around this time I get a lot of requests for DIY gift ideas. The one I have for you today doesn't require ANY stamping or Stampin' Up! products; how about that!

Even though I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am MORE than that; I like to think of myself as your “go to person” for anything related to crafting or DIY. So, please do let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to give you or find you an answer…deal?

So, today I wanted to share this great article I found on how to put Christmas lights in a wine bottle. This makes such a super cool gift, and it is easy on the wallet, too.

What is YOUR Biggest Cardmaking Challenge Part 2

Customer Q & A

Yesterday I answered one of the questions I most often receive from my email newsletter community. If you missed it, you can read my post by clicking here.

Today I wanted to touch on another great question:

Which Stampin' Up! ink should I use?

You can use any of our Classic Ink Pads on our Whisper White/Very Vanilla or any of our colored cardstock. If you stamp one color of ink on the same color of cardstock, you'll achieve a “watermark” or “tone on tone” look.

If you are using a water pen, brush, or a Blender Pen, you would need to use StazOn Jet Black ink as it is waterproof and will not bleed when adding water to your image.

To color with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, you will want to use Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is a fade resistant dye ink. You would also use this ink when stamping images (such as sentiments or greetings) which do not need to be colored.

I use Stampin' Blends on Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock. You will want to be sure to put something like a piece of chipboard or the backing that comes in our DSP packages under your project when coloring with these markers. The Blends do bleed through and you don't want to ruin your stamping surface!

Hope my “what is your biggest cardmaking challenge part 2” helped you today.
