I think you are going to love the cards I show you how to make in this Facebook Live Video Replay. I show you how to make a stack of 12 cards quickly and easily in under an hour. I use the beautiful new Eden's Garden Collection which is so versatile it lets you create cards for both men and women and for just about any occasion or reason for sending a handmade card. Make up the 12 cards, then add a sentiment as needed.
Evening Evergreen Card Base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"
Basic White inside card = 5 1/4" x 4"

Soft Succulent layer = 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"
A bit of Gold Foil and fun with punches adds beautiful accents to these simple cards.

Oh, Abstract Beauty 4" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It's filled with bright colors and fun patterns and images. It's a size we haven't seen in Designer Series Paper in many years. That's why I wanted to share some quick and easy card layouts using the Abstract Beauty 4" x 6" DSP in my December 31st Facebook Live. Think of the layouts you see in this Video Replay as "Mini One Sheet Wonders". They'll help you create fun cards in no time with just a few supplies.

Everybody needs to know what I consider the EASIEST One Sheet Wonder EVER!!! It's a simple 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder that makes 3 cards and can be used with just about any size stamped sentiments or images. You are going to LOVE it, so watch my video demonstration, then give it a try. The cards I demonstrate feature the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Sets (one of my favorites for birthday cards) and Pacific Point DSP from the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack.
Cut 6" x 6" DSP at 2".
Cut 1/2" off the 2" x 6" strip.
Turn the 4" x 6" piece to the horizontal/landscape position. Cut in half at 3" to make two 3" x 4" pieces.
Cut Basic White card stock 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" to layer DSP strip on.
Cut 2 pieces of Basic White card stock 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" to layer the other two DSP pieces on.
Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4".
To add a little more interest to these cards, add a layer of embossed card stock as I did on the cards below. I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder, my most used embossing folder. I like the subtle texture it provides.

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?
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. 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".

I thought I'd take the opportunity to share a project featuring a brand new suite launching with our new Annual Catalog on May 4th - Beauty of the Earth - today in celebration of Earth Day. The Beauty of the Earth Suite includes the colorful Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set and coordinating Beautiful Trees Dies, Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, Bark 3D Embossing Folders, and colorful Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.

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".
Directions for card above:
Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy ink on lower right corner of Merry Merlot Card stock.

I chose a few of these new products to use in my December 28th Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live. Take a look at my video replay below where you'll see a demonstration of what I call one of the Easiest One Sheet Wonders you'll ever use. I feature the Berry Blessings Stamp Set & Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper Bundle you can get FREE with a $100 Stampin' Up! order January 5th - February 28th.

'Tis the season of giving. If you're like me and many people I know, you probably have a list of people you'll be giving gift cards to. Gift cards are great for so many people - teachers, postal carriers, delivery drivers, hairdressers, babysitters, pastors, colleagues, and so many more people. If giving gift cards is in your holiday plans, this post is for you.
You can make 9 Gift Card Holders quickly and easily with a limited number of supplies, 1 sheet of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper, and my video demonstration from my November 23rd Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live. I made mine with a sheet of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper; card stock in Poppy Parade, Misty Moonlight, and Old Olive; and sentiments from Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. Take a look at the video, then get started creating your own set of Gift Card Holders for the upcoming holidays or for birthdays or any occasion you plan to give a gift card for. These make up so quickly, why not have a stash on hand for various occasions?

The Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Pack is full of plaids of varying sizes and color combinations. This Designer Series Paper is so versatile and will keep you creating beautiful cards and paper crafts for holidays and special occasions all year long. In the following video demonstration, I show you a very easy 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder to make 3 unique cards. In addition to the Plaid Tidings DSP, I feature the lovely Borders Abound Stamp Set and Holiday Rhinestones. I think you'll enjoy the fall cards I've prepared and demonstrated in this video replay of my September 14th Facebook Live video replay.
Use the following photo for your cutting guide for this 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder.
I made these 3 fall cards with a 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder design featuring Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. This DSP pack is filled with fabulous plaids in an array of colors you can use throughout the entire year!
The stamped images on these cards are from the Borders Abound Stamp Set.
The new Banners Pick A Punch is a great tool for punching 2 different banner cuts on 1/2", 3/4", and 1" strips of card stock and Designer Series Paper.
Linen Thread and Holiday Rhinestones are wonderful embellishments to dress up these fall cards.
The card stock sizes on the inside of the first & third cards match the card stock layers on the front of the cards and sure do dress up the inside of the cards.

Autumn is just around the corner. As I look forward to the changing colors of the fall leaves here in Ohio, I am reminded that with change comes beauty, and like the leaves on our trees, sometimes it is ok to let go.
I can't get enough of these 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonders. They make card making quick, easy, and fun. One Sheet Wonders are also a great way to build up a stash of cards to have ready as you need them. The one I feature in the following Facebook Live video replay makes 4 cards. I made all of mine vertical cards, but you could easily change things up a bit to make them horizontal cards if you prefer. This One Sheet Wonder is also quite versatile. I think it could work with most, if not all, Designer Series Papers and stamp sets. I hope you'll give this 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder a try!
I started out my FB Live demonstration by showing these 4 cards I made using only a 6" x 6" piece of Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper.
The next two photos, show you how I cut my 6" x 6" DSP.
I first cut at 1 1/2", then cut the remaining piece at 3" leaving 2 pieces measuring 1 1/2" x 6" & middle piece measuring 3" x 6".
Next, I cut 1/2" off the bottom of the first piece. That tiny bit of DSP is the only part I did not use.
I cut the center piece so that I had two 3" x 3" squares. I then cut the second square into three strips measuring 1" x 3".
The last piece I cut into four 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" squares.
The following photos show the 4 different cards I made using the 6" x 6" One Sheet Wonder above. I did switch out the Bumblebee card stock in the samples with Just Jade card stock and added some embellishments, but the card layouts are exactly the same.
This sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays Stamp Set. The sentiments on the other 3 cards come from the Lovely You Stamp Set.
This Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper One Sheet Wonder sure makes me smile when I see the beautiful cards I created with it.
