Celebrate You Washi Card

I love Pinterest, like most of you!

I get what I call “Pinspired”….I see inspiration and have to Stampinup-ify it!

This is what I saw:


It’s not Stampin’ Up washi tape or stamps, not even sure who the artist is since there isn’t a watermark on this one.

It pinspired me to create this with our washi tape:


I used the Beach House Washi Tape set, which features Crushed Curry, Pool Party and Real Red.

I’ll warn those of you precise, orderly stampers….tearing the washi tape so it tears exactly where you want it to is near impossible.  I’d love to be one of those ‘oh it doesn’t matter how long it is, wherever it goes it goes’ but I didn’t get the free spirited stamping gene.  So I had to tear them as if they happened randomly but with deliberate structure LOL

I used 2 stamp sets for the greeting and loved the combo!

 Holiday Invitation for the CELEBRATE stamp in Real Red and Work of Art for the pretty YOU stamp in Pool Party.

I threw on a few In Color sequin stars, too.

 I hope you give some washi tape a try!

Happy Tuesday!

Tuesday is the day Stampin’ Up posts what’s on sale for the week.

There is a new photopolymer stamp set called Banner Blessings!

I think it will be a great seller because it has that fun hand-drawn, chalk font that’s still so popular.

Handmade Birthdays!

The last few weeks have been super fun for Matt and I with Stampcation, our birthdays and a mini vacation to West Palm Beach.  West Palm was our destination to see the Last Comic Standing.  If you watched the comic competition this past year, you know how funny these guys are!   Worth the drive to see them and we got in some beach time while we were there, too.

Getting cards in the mail is such a delight!

Take time to send one of your handmade cards out this week, Ok?  You will make someone’s day:)


This one was made by Deb Townsend in CA.  I love all the layers and on the inside, a cute lil pop up!


She used the photopolymer stamp set called Flower Patch and our Stampin’ Up paper stack called Moonlight with Blackberry Bliss and Honey color combo.


My WI friend, Debbi Muche, sent me this super fun pop up Stampin’ Up box card!


It folds flat for mailing and isn’t it the happiest card?


While at Stampcation, Nikki and Lisa made this for me!  They were crafting up a storm making these GORGEOUS fabric frames.  I sure with SU sold this fabric again!   They used the Spiral flower die to create those perfect roses.

Stampcation #3 and Weekly Deals

Hi all!

I’m resting up from another fun Stampcation here in Orlando!  My creative event partner, Shantaie Fowler, and I put on our 3rd Stampcation, which was a 2 day stamping retreat for over 100 demonstrators here in FL (and a few from out of state, too!)

We always have a theme and this year was Stamping Invasion, Beatles style!

Every vignette was a Beatles song, like this area for Paperback Writer:


We found this old suitcase and filled it with a mini stamping chest:


sc presents

Lots and Lots of wrapped prizes!


The Stampcation yellow submarine photo op was a hit!

Of course we gave nods to Good Day Sunshine, Penny Lane and All you Need is Love!


We couldn’t have All you Need is Love without our SU teddy bears” Remember those?


20141029-004859.jpgYeah, that was a LOT of circles to cut but so happy with our sunshine!

20141029-004953.jpgMatt is our stampcation AV hero, taking care of the big screen, wireless mics and music!

Stampcation 2014 poppies

It couldn’t be Penny Lane without poppies (according to the lyrics anyway!)


A special thanks to all the demonstrator presenters who rocked our stage over the 2 days!

I’m excited about the Word Bubbles dies on sale this week!

Gratitude for Days and Weekly Deals

gfd photos

Hi everyone!  These kits really flew under the radar for me but my customers have been creating some fun things with them so I thought I’d spotlight them.

The kit is called Gratitude for Days. You can use it as a countdown to Thanksgiving  recording your gratitude from day to day and hang them up as a reminder with these colorful cards and pockets. Kit includes 33 cards and 30 pockets, as well as stickers and binder clips.

Some are decorating them and sending to the family in advance so they can read them all on Thanksgiving day!

One customer even used them at a baby shower this month for writing advice to the new mom!  The pockets and notes are just so cute.

Gratitude For Days Simply Created Kit  # 135868  $21.95

Here’s the kit:


And here is a video from the Stampin’ Up home office:


Then of course since it’s Tuesday, there are Weekly Deals!


Hee hee, that armadillo is cute!

That Lovely Lace folder is one of my favorites, too

Merry & Bright Holiday Supplement starts Today!

merry supplement

Apparently Stampin’ Up thought we needed MORE Holiday goodness so we have another tag-a-long supplement to shop from!

I hope you received one of these in the mail from me…if you didn’t hopefully it will be there this week!

Here is the digital version (it’s a little wonky as there is a fold out inside the hard copy)

Here are a few of the notable things inside and clicking on the pictures will take you to a description in my store:

stars many merry

This is a great set and coordinates with the Star Framelits!

It’s photopolymer so you can cut the stars in advance and still line them up.

15.95 for 16 stamps, # 138105

pl december wonder

This is a new Project Life stamp set, it’s photopolymer also, but is adorable for tags and cards if you aren’t memory keeping right now.  It coordinates with a few punches like the hexagon, 1″ and 1-1/4″ circles and the long banner framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels collection.

$15.95 for 13 stamps, item # 136562

The other notable new product is the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit


This kit is HUGE!

It makes 26 stars, some 3D,  in 6 sizes, from 2: to 15″.  All the words are laser cut and ready to go.

# 138104 25.95 for 26 stars

Watch the video from Stampin’ Up

That’s it for today!  If you want any of the new goodies, get in touch with me or order online anytime!
