Catalog Launch - Project 2

This is the second card we will be making at my catalog kickoff.  These cards feature several "returning" colors of card stock and two brand new colors.  As always, I like to show different ways to make the same card - so that everyone goes home with cards they like and that they will use.  This card features the new Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions folder.

There are still spaces available in both of Monday's make up classes where you can make the same projects that we will make on Saturday.

Catalog Kick Off - Project #1


This is one of the projects that we will make at my catalog kick-off event, this Saturday, June 16.  The 3x3 cards were inspired by Mary Fish.  They are made using the new In Colors Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!, coordinating ribbon, and the new stamp set, Itty Bitty Greetings. These cards are perfect for attaching to a gift bag or small gift.  The best thing about this project is that you can make the cards to suit your needs by experimenting with different backgrounds and using different greetings.




I am working a two other projects for Saturday - so check back on Friday to see them!

CLICK HERE for more information about Saturday's stamping event and to RSVP.

Only the first 6 people to RSVP will make the coordinating envelopes and cute pizza box to keep them all in - so RSVP now! 

Bring a friend who hasn't stamped with me in the past year, and choose a retired stamp set from my collection for FREE!  Or if YOU haven't stamped with me since last June - then YOU can pick a stamp set for FREE.

Congrats Grad - part 2

Here are two of the graduation cards I made this year. They were inspired by Pinterest,but I tweaked them a bit.  I wanted to include a gift card or check (we debated about whether the HS grads would even know what to do with a check!)

I made them the colors of the graduation announcement that we received.  For the first one, I used a quarter sheet (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) of Real Red card stock and glued a thick whisper white card (cut a little narrower) to the red card stock. The letters were cut using the Large Letters framelits and the "congrats" was cut from the SUNSHINE WISHES THINLITS DIES.  The balloons were punched from silver foil paper and red glimmer paper.

I used a retired greeting inside, and made an area where I could tuck in a check.


For the purple and gold card I used a half sheet of the new Gorgeous Grape cardstock, and cut the white piece to leave a 1/8 inch border.  Although I usually add embellishments in "threes", I thought the 2 balloons off to the right looked better.
This time I put the check on the top inside of the card, and added a graduation hat from a retired set.


Place an order from my online store using the current hostess code: FX6CAQGS and I will send you a free gift!

Place at least a $30 order and you may attend my Catalog Kickoff event for FREE.

Congrats Grad

I had three graduation cards to make this year - and this is what I came up with - thanks to some inspiration from Pinterest.

The first one was for a graduate from the Virginia Military Institute. 
This card was made using the VMI colors, the large number thinlits, and retired stamp sets.  Sadly, the large number thinlits just retired in May.

Speaking of retired.....I will have lots of retired Stampin' Up! products for sale at my Catalog Kick Off event on Saturday June 16th.  I want to introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s new colors.  They did a complete "refresh" with the new catalog.  Although I will miss some of the colors that retired - there are many new colors that I love.  AND some of my past favorite In Colors have come back as part of the Core Collection.

Please visit  MY WEBSITE for more information about my catalog kick off event.

Check back on Monday for details about the other graduation cards.

If you choose to place a minimum $30 order BEFORE June 16th using the hostess code: FX6CAQGS you may attend the catalog launch for FREE!  

If you are out of the area, I will send you the completed projects we make at the event, with a minimum $30 catalog order placed before June 16th.

Paper Pumpkin Time


Paper Pumpkin is a fun way to get started with stamping.  A fun kit shows up in your mailbox -  and only the months you want it to.  It is like celebrating Christmas or your birthday every month because the gift inside is always a surprise.  You will get a clear block in your first kit, that you will use to complete future kits.  Each kit also contains a stamp set, ink spot, printed directions with photos, and all the supplies needed to make the projects.  Most kits include cards - but some kits will be other items such as home decor items, holiday decorations, or a mini scrapbook.

You can see past kits by visiting the Paper Pumpkin You Tube Channel.

The projects in the photo above were in the April  2018 kit. The kit made 4 sets of five 3x3 cards and a sturdy box to keep them in. This is probably one of my favorite kits of all time and my customers loved it as well.  The refills for this kit sold out in less than a day - but I was able to snatch up TWO.  

So if you would like to gather a group of your friends to make a set of these cards- please CONTACT ME.

If you would like more information about Paper Pumpkin CLICK HERE.

Or  CLICK HERE to order a trial prepaid subscription. Be sure to name me  as your Stampin'Up!  demonstrator so I can send you a FREE GIFT - exclusively from me!

You free gift from me includes  a clear envelope for storing your Paper Pumpkin stamp set.  Fold the directions (included in your kit)  and trim them slightly to fit into the envelope.  Your free gift will also include a quarter sheet of card stock the same color as the ink spot that comes in the kit.  I will also include a copy of the stamp set images - so you can easily return the stamp set to the correct envelope.  At the end of the calendar year, I will also send you a photo index of all the stamp sets that were in the kits for that year.



I will be starting a "FIRST FRIDAY" class - for all local Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  The class will be free for current subscribers and other stampers may come and make at least 4 projects from past kits.for a $10 fee.

You must sign up by June 10th to get June's kit.
