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.

Sun Prints in Gray Granite

Have you seen the gorgeous new Sun Prints Suite in the Annual Catalog? If not, be sure to check it out on pages 90 - 91. It's got an amazing stamp set & dies bundle, gorgeous Designer Series Paper, and a fun Fern Embossing Folder. With a little creativity and imagination and inspiration, the possibilities are endless.

In this video replay of my May 20th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make 2 gorgeous cards with some of the Gray Granite prints in the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack. You'll see how to die cut a shape and then use both the positive and negative pieces to make 2 cards. You know me, if I can make 1 card, I might as well make 2. Right? A great way to build up a nice stash of cards to have on hand.

 

Stampin' Up! Sun Prints Suite - Mary Knabe For these 2 cards, I die cut the large rectangular label shape from the Painted Labels Dies from a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" DSP. I used the negative or "frame" piece for one card and the positive or "label" piece for the second card. The Vellum and Rustic Metallic Dots greatly enhance these simple but elegant cards.

Fabulous Fun Fold Card & Feeling Loved, Valued, Appreciated by SU!

I'm excited to share with you today, the many wonderful gifts I received from Stampin' Up! for being a 2022 Incentive Trip Achiever. Earning an incentive trip is a pretty big deal as less than 1% of demonstrators worldwide earned this reward. The gifts are amazing as you will see in the second half of this post, but first I need to share a truly FUN and EASY Fun Fold Card inspired by a card created by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts for a recent card swap. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one and share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy this video demonstration and will plan to make your own version of this Fun Fold Card and perhaps even share it on my Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe Facebook Page.

I received this card from SU! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts in a recent card swap and used it as the inspiration for my May 6th Facebook Live and today's blog post.

This week, Emily and I were supposed to be on the 2022 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip I earned. It was to be a Western Caribbean Cruise. SU!, however, made the decision to cancel it last fall due to Covid. While I was sad to not be able to take Emily on this trip and to not gather with the other SU! 2022 Incentive Trip Achievers, I still owe a big THANK YOU to Stampin' UP! for the wonderful gifts they sent. Just another way Stampin' Up! has made me feel loved, valued, and appreciated for the work I do. (Less than 1% of SU! Demonstrators worldwide earned the 2022 incentive trip. It takes a lot of hard work, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to earn such a reward.) 

Many customers, team members, and followers have asked me what the gifts were. So here's a look at them now.

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"

He's The Man

Today, the 2022 - 2023 Stampin' Up! Catalog is LIVE. Boy am I excited. It doesn't matter that I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 13+ years, I still get excited to shop and create with fabulous new products. In this video replay of a recent Facebook Live, I show you how to make 4 cards from a One Sheet Wonder using two 6" x 6" pieces of coordinating Designer Series. I also introduce you to the He's The Man Suite with it's really fun Designer Series Paper Pack. Yes, you can make incredible cards with just the He's The Man Designer Series Paper, card stock, and adhesives. So take a look and see if the He's The Man products are something you want to add to your Wish List from the new Annual Catalog.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop Change Is Beautiful

Welcome to another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. I'm so happy you're here! There are lots of great alternate project ideas to share with you for the April Change is Beautiful kit.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the April 2022 Change Is Beautiful Paper Pumpkin Kit. The kit includes contents to make 9 fun fold cards (3 each of 3 designs) or you can use the contents to make alternate cards, scrap book pages, gift card holders, gift tags, and more. 

Here is my alternate project using the Change Is Beautiful Kit.
Stampin' Up! April 2022 Paper Pumpkin Change is Beautiful Kit - Mary Knabe (1)I love all the bright colors and fun details of this collage. Use it as a scrapbook page or frame it for your home or to give as a gift.

The Bermuda Bay polka dot rectangles are the back of the tops of the first 2 flower pics I cut off. The Melon Mambo polka dot paper is from an envelope I cut apart.

I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo Ink and the butterflies in Daffodil Delight. Both are part of the wonderful stamp set included in this month's Paper Pumpkin Change Is Beautiful Kit.

The iridescent embellishments included in this kit are beautiful.

I cut a 1 1/4" x 12" piece of Bermuda Bay card stock, then tore approximately 1/4" off to get a "grassy" look.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my alternate project for the Change Is Beautiful Paper Pumpkin Kit. Now click on the box below to see Cheryl's Paper Pumpkin Project. Then be sure to keep on "hopping" to see many more alternate projects for this month's kit.

Nothing's Better Than...

You have to love a fun card layout that is so versatile you want to use it over and over. That is exactly what you're going to see in this Facebook Live replay. I demonstrate a fun, easy, versatile card layout as I make a card using the Nothing's Better Than stamp set. I then use that same layout to make 2 more cards featuring the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper. I think you're going to love what you see.

Ooooh, this card makes me dream of VACATION in a warm and sunny location or sitting poolside with friends.

Nothing's Better Than being able to use a favorite card layout over and over again as you will see in the photos below.
Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than - Mary Knabe

As you can see in the photos below, I changed out the Stitched Rectangle Die for a smaller one in my third card. Otherwise, the card layout is the same. You could do this same layout with other shapes or with flowers stamped, colored, and die cut with the Happiness Abounds Bundle. The sky's the limit.

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
