Making and sending Fun Fold Cards is always a good time, but this one is double the fun. In the following video replay of my June 10th FB Live, I demonstrate how to make a Double Gate Fold Card featuring the bright and beautiful Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper. I show you 2 versions and think you'll love both of them.

January - June 2022 Mini Catalog LAST CHANCE LIST

My heart is very heavy this week as I'm sure it is for many of us. Living life as "normal" just hasn't felt right after learning of yet another tragic school shooting in our country. Yesterday morning, I found it very difficult to focus on my work. so decided instead to get outside. I mowed my lawn, walked, sat in the sun just trying to process my thoughts and feelings, called a friend, and took time for prayer. I didn't feel much like doing a Facebook Live last night either but decided I needed to and that I'd probably feel better for having done so. I was right. I'm grateful for the support, understanding, grace, compassion and prayers of this Stampin' Peace community we've created together.

This week, I was reminded why I chose the name "Stampin' Peace" for my business. I was reminded that stamping and paper crafting and sharing it with others brings me joy and peace. It reminded me that we all have the power to make the lives of others a little better and a little brighter by making and sending handmade cards. Together, with this simple act of sending cards we spread love, happiness, compassion, and understanding. These small acts of kindness do make the world a better place. Every card sent makes a difference to someone somewhere. It is my hope that card making, and more importantly, the sending of our cards, fills each of our hearts and those we serve with a sense of joy and peace. Today, more than ever we need to be kind, thoughtful, compassionate, respectful. We need to believe that every life is precious and that every life matters. We need to work together to create peace in our hearts and to advocate for peace in our communities, in our country, in our world. I pray for peace today and everyday for you, for me, for our families and friends, for our neighborhoods and communities, for our country and our world. I believe in the power of prayer, and I believe we also need to advocate for a better life for us all. We need to advocate for peace just as much as we pray for peace. 

P3S-782-1200x1200

Below is the replay of my May 25th Facebook Live. I wasn't quite as upbeat as I usually am, but with the support of my viewers, I got through it. It's nice to have a community where I/we can feel safe sharing our thoughts and feelings.

You will want to grab your January - June 2022 Mini Catalog and a pen to use as you watch this video. I hope you find this Mini Catalog "walk through"  helpful as I point out the retiring products and which of those are discounted. Please note: the Last Chance Promotion and Discounted Prices begin on June 1st and end June 30th. Also note, ALL Last Chance Products are available while supplies last only. To avoid disappointment, make your selections now and be ready to order on or soon after June 1st. Items may sell out quickly.

 

Thank you all for being a part of my Stampin' Peace community. I am blessed and grateful.


Sending Sunshine & Good Feelings

I created this cheerful, sunny card with the new Good Feelings Stamp Set from the 2022 - 2023 Annual Catalog and the Tulip Fields Stamp Set from the 2022 January - June Mini Catalog. As you'll see in my Facebook Live video replay below, the Stamparatus, our perfect stamp placement tool, plays an integral part in creating this card.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half
  • Basic White card stock inside = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic Black card stock = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Basic White scrap for die cutting smallest circle from Layering Circles Dies = approximately 3" x 3"

Stampin' Up! Good Feelings & Tulip Fields Stamp Sets - Mary KnabeThis card is sure to bring sunshine and smiles to the person receiving it.

Perfectly Penciled Cash Card for the Graduate

Mother's Day is here once again. Every year at this time, I find myself reflecting on my years as a mom. Am I good enough? Have I shown enough love? Did I praise enough? Was I a good listener? and on and on. Yes, I've always taken my role as a mom very seriously, maybe too much so at times???, I don't know. I consider being a mom the most important work I'll ever do. Did I always get it right? No. Did I make mistakes? Yes. I think I can look back at my 30+ years as a mom and honestly say I did my best - the best I knew how with what I had. From the moment they were born and I learned what instant love was to now as I embrace the time I get to spend with them as adult children, I have loved them unconditionally and with all my heart and soul, and I have thanked God every day that he entrusted them to me.

I look at my daughters now (Andrea is 30. Emily is 25.) and see what truly good people they are. They're hard working, kind, caring, loving, compassionate, respectful people. They always strive to do and be their best, give of themselves, and care for others. They're both quite fun to be around and are good at making me laugh and smile. I look at Andrea and Emily and see that they are my greatest achievement and my legacy. I am forever grateful to be their mom. 

My own mom passed on nearly 6 years ago. I spend time thinking about her too, knowing that she too did her best. It's still strange not to call her on this day to wish her Happy Mother's Day. I think, though, that she'd be just as proud of me and my family today as she was when she was here on earth with us. I think she looks down on us and sees the wonderful people we are and celebrates milestones and special moments with us and watches over us in our struggles too. I'm grateful for the signs I get that she is still with me in spirit.

Happy Mother's Day to ALL the wonderful moms out there. I hope your day is blessed with love, happiness, family, and friends, and perhaps a few surprises too.

This day is also a day of celebration for another reason. Today I'll watch my niece graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from The Ohio State University. I'm so proud of Alison, and in celebration of her achievement, I created a special money card for her. I want to show you how you can make a money card too. 

I've chosen some new products that I though would be perfect for this task. You can't go wrong with the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper for black & white cards with a pop of color. This black and white DSP can be used as is or customized with any of our color tools and inks. My money card also features the Happiness Abounds Bundle. Why not dress your cash gifts in some pretty packaging perfect for graduations, birthdays, weddings, Mother's Day, and so many more gift giving occasions. You'll have fun doing it and your special people will be delighted with your handmade presentation.

Cash Card Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Basic Black card base = 7" x 8 1/2"
  • Basic White card stock =  6 3/4" x 3" (cut 2) and 6 3/4" x 1 3/4"
  • Basic White for banner = 4" x 3/4" plus scrap for stamping & color flower and leaves
  • DSP = 6 5/8" x 2 7/8" and 6 5/8" x 1 5/8"
  • DSP for belly band = 8 1/2" x 1"

Paradise Palms

I don't know about you, but I sure could use a vacation with some fun and relaxation some place sunny and warm right about now. I've been burning the midnight oil trying to keep it all together. Andrea's bridal shower was a few weeks ago, wedding invitations are in the mail, and this weekend we celebrate Emily's graduation with a doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. All that while keeping very busy with my Stampin' Up! business and being present for others and trying to take better care of my physical and mental health. Anyone else crazy busy and feeling a bit overwhelmed like me? Anyone else use stamping and paper crafting as a break from real life, that happy place you go to? Yeah, I get you. You are not alone.

We may not be at the beach or on a tropical island, but the cards featured in this video demonstration can help us escape in our minds for a bit. What's not to love about stamping and crafting and new techniques to try? Enjoy this video replay of my April 20th card making demonstration featuring cards made with the Paradise Palms Stamp Set and Blending Brushes and ink pads. You'll also pick up some tips for putting the stickers and your rubber stamps and using our amazing Stamparatus.

Amazing Silhouettes Free Friday Download

When I received the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle, I was intrigued, however, not quite sure how I'd use it. Since then, I have used it several times and have really enjoyed creating with it. This is the latest card I made with the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle, and I love it. It's bright and cheerful and quite easy to make.

Please enjoy the Free Project Sheet I've prepared for you.  Download Project Sheet - Amazing Silhouettes
