Fun Fold Card CASE with Whimsy & Wonder

I love Fun Fold Friday Facebook Lives. My August 13th one was made even better by CASEing a card I received in the mail from a dear friend and fellow stamper who also happens to enjoy being a member of my Merry Stampers Team, Mary Jo Lawson. As soon as I opened Mary's card, I just knew I had to demonstrate this fun fold. It's fun, it's easy, and is a great way to showcase our favorite Designer Series Paper. After all, isn't it hard to choose just one sheet or pattern from so many beautiful ones in the same pack? So, thank you, Mary Jo, for the gift of happy mail and for making what Fun Fold to demonstrate on my August 13th Facebook Live a no brainer! You are awesome!

So take a look at this Facebook Live Replay for a Fun Fold you are sure to love and will want to make yourself. My demonstration features the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper and other beautiful products from the same Suite. Watch, enjoy, then make a few yourself. And most importantly, keep in mind who you'll be sending your cards to to spread joy and cheer, something we all really need in this crazy world. You can a make a big difference in the lives of others with your handmade cards and thoughtfulness.

There are so many gorgeous details to admire in these cards!

Halloween Sliders just in time for Trick-or-Treat

Monday was such a fun day. During my Facebook Live I demonstrated making my Halloween Sliders with 2 different kinds of treats. Then I spent some time making several more of each Late in the day, my daughter Emily and I took the Halloween Sliders to my nieces and their roommates at The Ohio State University. Avery is a freshman studying business and living in the same dorm where her parents met. Her sister Alison is a senior in nursing and living off campus. It was fun to see these girls, hug them, and see where they're living and enjoying their college days. How fun it was for Emily and I, both OSU alumni, to spend a little time on campus. And just to note...big kids like Halloween treats too.

So if you're for still looking for something to make and give for trick-or-treat, take a look at the video below for a demonstration of making these "sliders" with candy bars and single serving cookies. These sliders can easily be adapted for any holiday or occasion. The sliders are so simple to make & use minimal supplies allowing you to whip up a batch in no time! Just by changing up the size of your paper, you can make sliders for microwave popcorn packets and so many other candy bars and treats. What's your favorite and what holiday or occasion would you make these treat sliders for?

 

Hershey Bar Sliders, so fun to make and give!

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).

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.

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Sneak Peeks

212049622_10219719043708496_5893127899089061058_n

The Stamping with Friends Blog Hop Challenge for today was to showcase a new product from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog which launches on August 3rd. By viewing all the blogs in this blog hop, you'll get lots of Sneak Peeks of wonderful new products to come and great samples too.

My card below features 3 brand new products coming in our Holiday Mini Catalog - the Thinking Thanks & Peace Stamp Set, Silver Foil Specialty Paper, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I stamped with VersaMark Ink, added Silver Embossing Powder, then applied heat with our Heat Tool. The dove was colored with Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. To me, this card shows the same simplicity and beauty as the Peace on Earth message itself.

Fresh Fruit For All

I have loved creating with the amazing You're A Peach Suite. It is so fresh and fun. BUT, there is so much more to the Sweet As A Peach Bundle if you allow yourself to see it a new light. Think outside the box. Let your imagination take shape Can you envision creating other fruits with this bundle? Well, in my video below, I demonstrate how I used the Sweet As A Peach Bundle to make blueberries, cherries, plum, and apples. I bet you, like the viewers of this Facebook Live, can think of many more fruits you can make with this stamp set and dies bundle. The versatility of the Sweet As A Peach Bundle has opened me up to so many more ways to use it. 

Take a look at my video demonstration, then make a "fruit salad" of cards give or send. You'll be spreading love and summer fun!

I first thought of these as apples, but looking again, they could be nectarines as well.

Consider using the Sweet As A Peach Bundle during the fall apple picking season or to make apple cards for teacher gifts.

Custom Made Designer Series Paper Envelopes

If you've been following my work for a while, or if you're new to Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, it doesn't take long for you to learn that I love Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. It is often time the first product I reach for when I sit down to design and create. I love that each piece of paper has a different print on each side. I love that the colors in the Designer Series Paper are true Stampin' Up! colors coordinating with all our other color products - ink pads, markers, ribbon, embellishments. AND so many of our Designer Series Papers also coordinate with other products such as stamp sets, dies, and punches. Stampin' Up! is known for its color coordination and product coordination. That's what I love most about using Stampin' Up! products, Designer Series Papers being one of my favorite products categories. I love them for cards, scrapbook pages, little favors, and so much more.

In the following video, I demonstrate quick and easy cards in 3 sizes each with coordinating envelopes made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. You can whip up these cards and envelopes in record time. The custom made DSP envelopes are so easy, especially after watching my video demonstration and using the templates pictured. Feel free to print the picture of the envelope templates for your future use.
