Do You Need an Easy Gift Idea?

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Paper crafting/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Friday Stampers! Those of you moms, students, and just busy peeps,  I have an easy gift idea to share with you today! This card folder which holds six cards with envelopes,  can be made with minimal supplies. To save time since you would have all your supplies out, you could even make several at one time to have on hand. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't need a set of cards organized in a cute folder! Heck, why not make a couple for yourself and put birthday cards in one, sympathy in another, Thinking of You, and so on!

I purposely designed this to be a simple project. Now, if you are the Glitter Queen or lover of any embellishment, you can certainly “glam” it up!

Do You Need an Easy Gift Idea?

For my supplies I used:

1 sheet of Designer Series Paper (I used our new Garden Lane DSP coming June 4 in our Annual Catalog)
6 sheets of neutral CS, I prefer using Whisper White or Very Vanilla THICK CS – depending upon which is in your DSP
3-4 sheets of coordinating, colored CS, depending upon how many layers you want (for my project I used Mint Macaron, Garden Green, and Mossy Meadow)

I did this class in a Facebook Live video and you can watch it below. In addition to showing you how to make the folder and cards, I also share a few extra tips that I think will help you in your papercrafting:

easily cut your layers AND mount to your card base straight every time
save time mounting your cling stamp sets
stamp your sentiments perfectly straight every time.

Be Mine Stitched Framelits

Big Shot/ Mojo Monday/ Paper crafting

Be Mine Stitched Framelits

Today I'm sharing a card using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, retiring this year. I'm sure you've seen many Valentine projects using these, but I wanted to show a different “look” today.

When I am purchasing my stamp sets and dies I try to look for ones that are versatile, having other uses than just the “normal” ones.

I've included card instructions, including measurements below!

Everything is Rosy – Rose Gold Samples

Die Cut/ Samples/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Friday crafting peeps! I am having so much fun creating with the Everything is Rosy medley of products.

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

My favorite thing about this box of goodies is all of the rose gold that is inside! This is a new type of product offering for Stampin' Up!, so some of my customers have been a little confused as to everything that is included. For $80 (plus tax and shipping) you get a stamp set, a coordinating set of dies, eight 6″ x 6″ sheets of Rose Gold Foil, forty-eight sheets of 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, six sheets of die-cuts, two full rolls of ribbon, a sheet of mirrored embellishments,  and a bottle of Rose Gold Shimmer Paint!

I have 2 cards to share with you today and I think you'll notice the rose gold on both of them! 🙂

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

To get the shimmer background, I used a sponge with a tiny bit of shimmer paint and “swept” it on the 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, starting at the top. It gets lighter near the bottom so I did this same technique again, starting at the bottom and working up, just to make sure I had the right coverage.  I punched a 2 1/4″ circle from one of the DSP pages and then adhered several of the floral stickers behind this circle.  I chose my tag and then used a “third generation” stamped flower in Melon Mambo ink, followed by my sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

If you haven't heard of the term “third generation” stamping it's just a fancy way of saying “stamping three times without reinking in between”.

I added a small piece of the pink ribbon to my tag and popped it onto the card front using a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I attached this piece to a Whisper White Thick cardstock base. Personally, when I'm using layers and embellishments, I prefer to use one of our thick cardstocks. I think it is sturdier.

My next card uses a gorgeous piece of DSP with lots of rose gold!

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

For this card, I stamped the sentiment on a 2″ Whisper White circle and attached this to a 2 1/4″ circle punched from one of the Rose Gold foil sheets.  The layer is a 2 1/4″ x 4″ piece of the floral DSP, cut it into three strips, each 3/4″. I mounted these on a 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Rococco Rose, one of our new In Colors.

I added one of the die-cut stickers to complete my card. Easy, peasy…done!

To order any of these products, just click on a picture below. Remember, the Everything is Rosy Product Medley is available only while supplies last, through May 31.

No Time To Stamp? Want a Beautiful Card?

Memories & More/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hey Stampers! Let's face it. We are all long on to do lists and short on time these days, especially where our fun hobbies are concerned. There are jobs to go to, kids activities, meals to prep and cook, the list goes on and on. When we have to slash the list, our “fun” activities are usually the ones to go.

Today's project features a card that has NO stamping! How's that for time-saving?

It uses our Memories & More card pack; and not just any card pack. This one is coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog that goes “live” on June 4.These cards are part of a wonderful suite of projects that is perfect for casual AND avid stampers.

No Time To Stamp? Want a Beautiful Card?

The card pack includes 50 double-sided cards, 6 single-sided printed vellum specialty cards , and 4 sticker sheets, all for $11.00! In addition, if you scrapbook in addition to cardmaking, these products are acid and lignin free.

Here are the instructions and supply list for today's project. I think a set of these note cards, using different designs from the card pack would make a lovely gift!  No driving to the mall, no thinking up designs, totally easy peasy! Once your cards are put together, just pop them into one of our acetate card boxes and decorate with a ribbon bow or belly band and you're all set!

Supplies

  • Paper: Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149487)
  • Other: Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack (149445); Stitched Rectangles Dies (148551); SNAIL adhesive (104332; Die Cutting Machine

Instructions

  1. Cut down one of the card bases in the Memories & More Cards & Envelopes to 8 ½” x 5 ½”; fold to create card front.
  2. Adhere one of the 4” x 3” Memories & More Cards to the left side of the card front using SNAIL Adhesive.
  3. Cut out the sentiment from the Memories & More Card using the 3 ½” x 2 1/8” die from the Rectangle Framelits using a die cutting machine.
  4. Adhere the rectangle piece onto the card front.
  5. Add one magnolia blossom and two leaf stickers from the Memories and More Cards to the top right corner of the rectangle.

See how easy?!

Here are a few other samples using the Magnolia Lane Suite.

No Time To Stamp? Want a Beautiful Card?

If you don't currently have a Stampin' Up! Demo, I'd love to work with you. Need a catalog? Email me with your mailing info and phone number; I'll get one out to you.

Oh, don't forget that in order to make room for wonderful new products like Magnolia Lane, we must bid farewell to others. You can see retiring (and clearance rack!) items at my online store, HERE.

Where Have YOU found Glitter?

Contests/ Mojo Monday

Hey stampers! It's such a warm, sunny day here in north Texas and we are LOVING the change! It was cold and rainy last week so having a bright, yellow orb in the sky sure lifts our spirits. Even my first graders at church seemed to be in happier moods!

I have a question for you today…where have you found Where Have YOU Found Glitter??

 

OK, I don't mean in a “normal” place, but in or on what unusual place have you found glitter? I'd love you to leave a comment on the bottom of today's post.

I posed this question to my newsletter subscribers and gave them an opportunity to win a signed copy of Laura Child‘s new scrapbooking mystery, Glitter Bomb. The results were simply hilarious and I wanted to share some of the funnier ones with you today.

  • Inside my pantyhose- around the thigh area ..I was a chaperone at a high school dance.
  • Once found glitter on the bathroom floor of a craft store. (It was hanging out with the Easter grass!)
  • When we were cleaning out my Mom's house, I found all kinds of glitter spread in the drawer of her glitter. When I asked her about it, she indicated that she had spilled a small packet of it years prior and just left it there so when she picked something out of the drawer, she would be reminded of that time.
  • On the dog's nose.
  • The strangest place I have found glitter was in my contact lens case and I was nowhere near glitter. Mystery.
  • My strangest place would have to be on my tongue. Lol And no I don’t eat glitter, haha but probably ate something and not realizing I had glitter on my fingers.
  • My center desk drawer at work!!!!
  • I found glitter once between my baby sons toes.
  • I would say the strangest place I’ve found glitter would be on my cat’s tail!
  • I found glitter in the church pew .
  • Unfortunately on the end of my nose. This was after cashiering all day!
  • The strangest place that I have found glitter was between my toes. I had spilled it on the floor and apparently I did not get it all.
  • The strangest place I have found glitter was in a book that I’m reading.
  • The strangest place I have found glitter was in my bra.
  • I have found glitter every place in my house, on my husband that will not go in my craft room, and my \ beagle.
  • As a retired kindergarten teacher I would find glitter everywhere and for some time. My custodian was never happy with me.
  • I found glitter on my friend's face. I was working with glitter, she was not!!!
  • In my mashed potatoes!
  • My underwear! I am sure it was on my hands from crafting so long & needing to desperately take a potty break!
  • The strangest place I found glitter was on my cat's paws. She tracked it all over our house. The strange thing was we had no glitter in the house at all. Go figure.
  • The question would be, “Where Have I not found glitter?”

My personal favorite is the last one; so true don't you think?

While we're on the subject of glitter, sometimes a strip and some tiny pieces is just what you need to give a little “wow” to your card!

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

Classes / Events/ Stamping

Hey Stampers! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Let me tell you about mine! It was a gullywasher…but they still came! Who you might ask? Why, my loyal customers and friends.

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

The rain could not keep my stampers away; some of the groups drove over an hour to get to my Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Open house.  The event was free, and the first 25 who RSVP'd got a free gift. I had 6 projects, a few snacks and samples galore. There was an extra project for those who decided to place an order, and let me tell you, almost everyone did! 🙂

The projects used new products from the current holiday catalog and I set things up in stations around the room. Here are two of the projects:

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

Moral of the story? Neither snow, nor sleet, nor hail, nor a good ‘ol gullywasher can keep us away from a day of stamping! 🙂

If you live in the Dallas metroplex area, be sure you're on my email newsletter list (fill in your name and email at the top of this post). I definitely want to invite you to my next event!
