Personalized Kraft Journals

One of things I love about Stampin’ Up! Convention (there are really too many to list) is the generosity of other demonstrators.  I can’t tell you how many little gifts I received while I was there!  Mostly chocolate, which was great in those emergency moments where you realize that you haven’t eaten much in a while!  But of course the chocolate came in adorable packaging!

Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

There are few products that I have run across that truly simplify my life.  Project Life is one of those!  Throw all your original ideas out the window!  Project Life by Stampin’ Up! is truly revolutionary!  

What is it?  It is simple memory keeping.  No more guilt about all of those pictures you’ve taken and meant to get into a book.  I’m guilty of it too!  I have stacks (or in some cases they are all still in my photo program) of photos that I’ve been meaning to document. These memories are important to me.  With three growing boys I want to be able to keep those memories, but I need something easy, affordable, fast, and stylish.  In comes Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

Inspire Create Share 2014 Convention Swaps

I’ve been busy making swaps to share with other demonstrators at the Stampin’ Up! Annual Convention!  I love swapping with other demonstrators and getting new ideas.  

This first card I created used the new Flower Patch stamp set with new 2014-2016 In-Colors. This stamp set is quickly becoming one of my favorite!  It’s a new photopolymer stamp set which makes lining up stamps a breeze!

Flower Memories

I have a quick card to share with you today!  This was one of my favorite cards that we created at card class in June.  It features the new hostess stamp set Bloom With Hope. I was immediately drawn to this set, even though I have many other floral sets.  I also pulled out two of my new favorite in-colors, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey!

Sweetbriar Rose

I’m just loving this new single stamp called Sweetbriar Rose!  It’s so much fun to color in the images.  I used our new Blendabilities in Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry to color in the image on this card.  

sweetbriarrosepurple 803x1024 Sweetbriar Rose
I have some great news!!  The first 6 Blendabilities color assortments (as well as the Skin Tones Assortment, Momento Pad, and Color Lifter) are now available for you to order!!

What makes these markers so unique?  
  • The Stampin’ Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine. 
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Color coded caps.
  • Stampin’ Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.

Here is a quick “how to” video on these new markers!  

Order your’s today!

Open House Samples

I had a great time visiting with everyone who attended the New Catalog Open House on Sunday! Everyone who attended received a new catalog, a bookmark, and prizes for ordering! Of course it wouldn’t be a stamping event without a little stamping so of course there was a make-n-take for everyone!

I really wanted to showcase the versatility of the new Work Of Art stamp set.  All of these samples were created with a package of the Note Cards & Envelopes, one stamp set, a a variety of ink pads.  I will put the supply list at the end of the post.
