Did you know you can get the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle FREE?

It's true. When you join my Stampin' Up! community through September 30th, you can choose a Bundle from our Holiday Mini Catalog absolutely FREE. Click on the following link to see all 12 bundle options:  Download FLYER_SAB_JOIN_NA

Now, let's do the math to see your saving when you purchase a Starter Kit. Our Starter Kit is completely 100% customizable and includes $125 in product of your choice! You pay just $99 + sales tax and it all ships to you FREE. So for approximately $107.50 (based on 7.5% sales tax where I live), you'd get $125 chosen by you PLUS a FREE BUNDLE from the Holiday Mini Catalog for an additional savings of $31.50 - $60.25 (depending on the free bundle you choose). WOW!

How much would that all cost you if you don't purchase the Starter Kit??? $125 product cost + $12.50 shipping + $10.31 sales tax (based on 7.5%) for a total of $147.81. That's a HUGE difference, and the total doesn't even include the cost of the additional Bundle that is free for those who join my team.

Beauty of the Earth Fun Fold

I can't get enough of making Fun Fold Cards. So much so that I committed to "Fun Fold Friday Facebook Lives". This is one of my favorite. So often, people are intimidated by Fun Fold Cards. I can understand when it comes to ones with multiple folds in one cards. BUT, let me tell you, MOST Fun Fold Cards are much easier to make than you think. That's why I love them, and that's why I love sharing them with all my Stampin' Peace followers!

The Fun Fold Card I show in this video demonstration features the incredible Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. This beautiful DSP can be used year round and for so many different reasons and occasions for sending your handmade cards. 

FYI...There is no imperfection on my leaves stamp. I discovered that there was a tiny air bubble between my stamp and the clear block. So I pulled my stamp off the clear acrylic block and reset it. All good stamping after that. A great little tidbit to remember.

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Night of Navy Card Base = 5 1/2" x 7", score at 4 1/4" on LONG side, fold so flap is on front left.
  • Basic White for inside card = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Night of Navy = 3 3/4" x 3", score at 1/2" on SHORT side. 
  • Beauty of the Earth DSP or white card stock for stamping = 3 1/2" x 2 3/8"

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th

As a former teacher and mom who made sure our family showed our appreciation for our children's teachers, school employees, and bus drivers,  I can say a little token of appreciation goes a long way in helping people enjoy their jobs and stay motivated to do and be the best they can be. Tuesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day. I kept that day in mind when planning my April 28th Facebook Live projects. I created 2 sets of cards and a fun 3D gift tag that you can make quickly and easily and with limited supplies. All projects feature one of my favorite punches, the Apple Builder Punch. If you don't have it yet, I think you're going to want it after seeing this video demonstration. AND you'll want to order it quickly as this item is retiring on May 3rd and is only available while supplies last. AND if you can believe it, it is on sale for just $7.20 (originally $18.00). It doesn't get better than that. 

The projects you're about to see in this video are not only great for Teacher Appreciation Day, but for other reasons as well. How about as a Back to School gift, a hostess gift, fall harvest notes, a co-worker gift, or simply to surprise someone with a little pick me up or gift of cheer? How about using these apple cards to send notes and gifts to the "apples of your eyes" - grandchildren or students on summer break?

 

Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

I used Real Red DSP from the 2020-2021 Regals Paper Pack for these card sets.

In the following sets of cards, I used the NEW 2021-2022 Regals Paper Pack Collection. I LOVE the tone-on-tone patterns of the new 6" x 6" DSP's in Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and 2021-2023 In Colors. These will be available for all to order on Tuesday, May 4th with the launch of our brand new Annual Catalog.Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

Who knew that a simple $3.50 product could give so much dimension to an otherwise flat shape? That's exactly what our White Stampin' Chalk Marker does for these apples. It's my best $3.50 investment ever! It also works great for coloring the center of small flowers and so much more. Trust me when I say, "Everyone needs one".

  • Designer Series Paper = Use the Beauty of the Earth DSP with watercolor tree prints at the top and bottom of the paper with white space in the middle. Cut it at 6" (in half) through the white space. Then cut each of the two 6" x 12" pieces into 4 pieces measuring 3" x 6". 
  • Wood Grain DSP (also from Beauty of the Earth DSP) = Cut 4 pieces measuring 2" x 3".

More BEAUTIFUL Boho Indigo cards. I just can't get enough of this amazing product medley. So many wonderful elements in this product medley make creating your own uniques cards and paper crafts easy. It's fun to mix and match the Designer Series Papers, stamps, embellishments, and more. I'd love to see what you create the amazing Boho Indigo Product Medley.

A simple change of the Designer Series Paper comes in handy when you need to make a bunch of cards.

I think the Linen Thread double bow is a nice accent for this Boho basket.

Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

I've been making a few Wine Bottle Tags for holiday gift giving. Below are ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the Gilded Autumn Suite and a sheet from World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for my Thanksgiving Wine Bottle Tag. The Christmas one was made with products in my October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Joy to the World. I always love to make a few alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin Kits. 

IMG_0150 (1)Each Wine Bottle Tag starts with  4" x 12" piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or card stock. I score 3 1/2" from the top and fold gently. I punch a 1 1/2" circle to hang the tag. To create the "ring" that goes around the hole, punch a 1 1/2" circle in center of 2 1/4" square of coordinating paper. Then punch with 2" Circle Punch centering the hole in the 2" circle opening to and punch to get the ring.

I love my monthly Paper Pumpkin Kits. Each month a surprise paper crafting kit is delivered to my house with everything I need to create beautiful cards. If you're interested in card making and paper crafting, this is a great way to start. And if you're already experienced, you can put your own twist on these kits by creating alternate projects with your kit contents.
