At Home With You… Merry Christmas

By | May 28, 2017

Hi Stampers

Can you believe it……. just under 7 months until Christmas….. are you ready?     Yes I am saying that tongue in cheek, but you know it won’t be long before we are all talking about “Christmas in July” classes, then the back to school ads will be on TV and Radio…. and then we will all be in full blown Christmas mode.      So while I may be teasing on the “Merry Christmas”….. I do have a Christmas card to share with you…… to get you thinking and planning for the coming months.

One of the new stamp sets in the 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue is called “At Home with You”.   It has a lovely combination of accessories that will co-ordinate with the door.   It covers Spring, Summer, Fall, Christmas, New Home, Thank You….. and what would make it better… the co-ordinating “At Home Framelits”.

Wood Words, Stampin’ Up!

By | May 27, 2017

Hi Stampers

Another Day… another Sneak Peak.

This time it is the Wood Words stamp set and the co-ordinating Wood Crate Framelits.    For the crate I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack…. I love the rustic look of this card.

I actually started this card last night but wasn’t “feeling it”.   I ended up leaving the pieces on my desk and went to bed.    When I got up in the morning, I was getting ready for work and went into the studio to find something…. there sitting on the desk were the pieces and I was inspired.     I went to work and all I could think about during the day was “the card”.    I couldn’t wait to come home to finish it off.

This is the final result and I am happy with it.    It will be going on my Display Board for the New Catalogue Open House.

Hi Stampers

I know I don’t have to tell you…… but I love, love, love this bundle.     The images are so detailed that you really don’t have to do much for the card to be stunning.      A pop of colour on the chef’s scarf,  a bit of colour on his hair/mustach and some colour on the icing tube…. perfect!     I did bling it up a bit with the Clear Wink of Stella on his hat.

It’s Your Big Day, Birthday Delivery

By | May 23, 2017

Hi Stampers

Another sample using the Birthday Delivery stamp set and die.     Oh My!.    

What drew me to this bundle originally was the Birthday Friends Framelits and the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper.   You see…. the framelits cut images that are featured on the Designer Series Paper and I was in AWE!.    But then I started playing with the stamp set… and yes, the framelits cut out the images from the stamp set as well.    Talk about co-ordination…. if you think I am gushing, I am!.      I love the innocence of this stamp set and this little girl in particular.   You are going to see a lot of it!

Card - Birthday

 

This card features a lot of new product.   

  • Birthday Delivery Stamp set
  • Birthday Friends Framelits
  • Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight
  • Berry Burst ink (on the banner)

Door is Open, Come on In … version #2

By | May 22, 2017

Hi Stampers

A few days ago, I had posted a picture of a sign I made on a magnetic sheet for my front door.   You can see that original post HERE.      After making the sign, I remembered that my front door is mostly window.  With the sign having a magnetic back it would be too low to put on the door.      So I was on a mission to make a new sign.

This time I used a chalk board sign that I got at a local craft store and worked from there.    I actually ended up liking this sign much better than the first one.     When using the Stampin’ Up! logo in this fashion, Demonstrators need the final OK from the Home Office.    I have taken a picture and sent it along with measurements… and am keeping my fingers crossed it will receive an OK.     I took the image from the Stampin’ Up! site, but since I changed the dimensions, they need to bless it.   Update… I received the OK for the sign….yeh…. very happy.  Thank you Stampin’ Up!.

So what does my sign look like….

Just in case you are curious…. yes… it is using the Daisy Delight Bundle.   The leaves are from the Rose Garden Thinlits… I cut the leaves away from the rose.

Once I receive the OK from Stampin’ Up!, I will hang this proudly on my door whenever there is a Stampin’ Up! event happening.    It is much nicer than the sticky note I would put on the door… don’t you think?

Daisy Delight Bundle – Stampin’ Up!

By | May 21, 2017

Hi Stampers

It is that time of year….. gearing up for the launch of the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue.    My Catalogue Open House is scheduled for Sunday May 28th from 1:00 – 3:00.      With tomorrow being a holiday in Canada… and well the weather is lousy…. it is great timing.     I am hunkered down in my studio, I have movies lined up to play (for background noise) and the coffee pot is on.     I was feeling “creatively challenged” for the last few weeks, but I had a burst of energy and ideas this morning… woke up at 6:00 am and started.      Yeh me!

So what is the scoop with the Daisy Bundle?   I know… unfortunately the punch will be on back order when the catalogue goes live.    I had a Team Meeting last month and mentioned to them that I think this bundle will be VERY popular.   It is an excellent price point, you don’t need the Big Shot so it isn’t a huge investment and well the possibilities are endless.      The good news is that you will be able to purchase the Bundle starting in June…. you will receive the stamp set and the punch will follow when they are back in stock.        So why all the fuss about this bundle…..

This makes me happy just looking at it.   I love how it turned out.     It is an inexpensive little milk bottle filled with River Rocks, the Daisys and some sprigs of filler stems.     It is topped off with a bow using the new Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon.   Ohhhh and I can’t forget the new Faceted Gems (I think they will be another hot item in the new Catalogue.).

 

What do you think?    Are you loving the bundle?

Door is Open, Come on In….

By | May 13, 2017

Hi Stampers

If you have ever attended an event, class, club, etc. at my home, you will know that I put a sticky note on the front door that says, Stampin’ Up!, Door is Open, Come on In.    I am usually scrambling around before the class looking for a sticky note and to be honest it doesn’t look very “artsy”.

I had an idea to make a sign using Stampin’ Up! product.     I am calling this my prototype.    It is on a magnetic sheet, but after making it I realized that my door is only metal from the knees down… the top is all glass…. one of those things that I didn’t think about before hand.      After making the sign, I also realized that I should have moved the Stampin’ Up! logo more to the right so it wasn’t as bunched on the left.    I am going to redo this on a piece of thin wood and use a suction cup to hang it from the glass part on the door.   Once I am done I will repost the final project and how it looks on the door.   I want to have it done for my New Catalogue Open House at the end of the month.

One, Two, Three, Four, Five

By | May 11, 2017

Hi Stampers

I was working on the Club Cards for May and needed some inspiration.    I had in mind that I wanted to use the stamp set “Number of Years” but had a brain burp and couldn’t think of anything original.    A quick search and I saw a card that Fran Sabad made.   I loved how simple and clean her card was and decided that was the card I was going to make.    If you are new to stamping….. we have a term for this…. .it is called “CASE” ing.  (Copy and Share Everything).   Good etiquette is to give credit to the creator.   So Fran… thank you for the inspiration.

It turns out I didn’t end up using the card for May’s Club Cards, but I thought it would make a great kid’s birthday card.    Mine is slightly different from Fran’s but I loved her bold colours and kept mine similar in the colours.
