Hi all!  This card was supposed to post on the 11th but I accidentally set it for 2016….sigh.  Technology is only as good as the human who uses it LOL

So it’s a tad late but I love this card!  My favorite part is the cobweb stamp on the cup.  There’s a 1/2″ cut off the front so the stripes on the inside of the card shows.  If you already own the Coffee Cafe framelits, this stamp set is a fun addition!

Coffee Cups Framelits Dies 
#143745 Price: $30.00

Here is the stamp set, Merry Cafe, from the Holiday Catalog. It has fall, Halloween, Christmas, New Years and even love/Valentine option!

Merry Café Photopolymer Stamp Set #144965
Price: $17.00

I added some black sequins from the Metallic assortment.  I cut the pumpkin and the borders from the designer paper, Spooky Night.

Spooky Night Designer Series Paper #144610
Price: $11.00

Stampin’ Up has a few other samples using this versatile set!

I made 2 project videos with Merry Cafe for Stamping School for fall and Christmas, so if you are a member there be sure to watch those!

Sunflower Birthday Pizza Box

I have a lovely friend whose birthday is early November, so the sunflower stamped in fall colors is just perfect for a little somethin’ somethin’ to give her.  The Stampin’ Up Pizza Boxes are so cute and around 3-1/2″, so the tubes fit diagonally in them.

I found these Fall treats at Fresh Market! I was looking for little bits to fill our Treat Tubes. The left bag is little chocolate covered sunflower seeds and the right is Jelly Bellies.  Only 10 jelly beans fit in the tubes so  I went with the seeds instead. Great colors of curry, Cajun and pumpkin!

See the wooden leaf embellishment on the box? I used old olive and a sponge dauber but I actually liked it better in the  natural before I added color! Anyway, I hope she likes it!

Sprig and Ornament Pizza Box Video

​​I’ve been cutting and packaging up all the Holiday shares and they are ALL mailed!  Thanks to all who participated with me again this year and I really enjoyed putting them together! If you signed up for those, they should be arriving by Thursday or Friday this week.

I LOVE pizza.

Any kind….thin, thick, new york, detroit style, or chicago….I’ll take it all!  There’s a place here in town called Pi-Squared, detroit style pizza and it’s divine! However, I’ve been trying to eat better and cheese and pepperoni are not on the list as often so I have to substitute paper crafting with mini pizza boxes!

These are cute AND sturdy.  And food safe. And require no glue.  win win win!   You can find them on page of the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog and come 8 in a package for only $6.  They are 3-1/2″ square and 1″ thick when assembled.

These would make a fun gift to add 3×3 cards and envelopes inside the box.  I used the designer paper from the Merry Little Christmas suite and the stamp set Merry Little Labels:

I had a question about how to attach the Green Sprigs and Mini Ornaments on projects like the pizza box so I made a quickie video:

This suite is unexpected in it’s color scheme because it’s just black and olive in color!  But add some sparkle and it quickly becomes a holiday! You can find the suite on pages 10-13 in the Stampin’ up Holiday Catalog:

Here are the supplies I used for the pizza box project!  If you’d like any of them for your own, get in touch or order online by clicking any of the items below:

The Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog Begins Today!

Hi all!  It’s September 1st and we can all order from the new Holiday Catalog today!

Usually I’m super excited for the release of all the pretty and new products but my heart is heavy watching the news of those affected by the storm.  It feels odd to me to talk about the new catalog and stamping when there are so many people without homes and a very long road ahead to get back to a normal life again.  I’m reading amazing stories of strength, perseverance, quiet heroes and unity while nature has been so unkind.  I hear many of you are making cards and helping people (and animals)  in shelters with supplies. Hugs to all.

Now I will put on my Stampin’ Up ‘hat’ and tell you all about what’s new!  The Holiday catalog begins today through January 2nd.  It really IS a great catalog:) It’s loaded with some creative dies and stamps we haven’t carried before, which is always fun. There’s a LOT in there!  If your list is long, maybe someone else might want to put a few things in your stocking?  Fill out this wish list and get it back to me – I’ll help your people get it under the tree!  Download wishlist HERE

View Holiday Catalog Online HERE

There are many 10% off bundles with stamps/dies or punches!  (look for the little ornament bubbles in the catalog to get the special item numbers for bundles)  If you haven’t watched the new Holiday Videos from Stampin’ Up, take a stroll through and get familiar with the new products and get some inspiration at the same time:

Click here to view all of the Holiday Videos from Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up even has a special for hosts (or individual shoppers) starting today.  It’s a special stamp set that can only be earned at $300, even demonstrators cannot buy it!  $300 can be a lot for one person, so think about puddling your orders together with a friend or two:)

Here is the exclusive stamp set, photopolymer (the deer has a SWEATER on it, fun)  and the candles 2 step with different designs. It’s called Merry Patterns.

Linda’s Holiday Catalog Shares are Open!

**Updated Sept 1st!  Round 1 is closed and Round 2 is open until September 4th if you want to join my Holiday shares!

The  Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog is FULL of exciting and new stamps, accessories and papers!  Fall, Halloween, Winter, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year are all in there and the catalog will begin for ordering on September 1st.

I hear my customers have been getting their copies in mailboxes all over the US!  If you would like one (and you are not a demonstrator already) just email me with your mailing address and I’ll mail you one – it’s so much better to have a copy in your hands than looking at it online on Sept 1st!

If you would like a little bit of all the papers, ribbons and accessories then join one or all of my shares.  A product share means that I’ll divide the paper in 6×6 pieces between 8 people, for example, so you get one 6×6 sheet of each paper rather than having to buy a whole pack.  You pre-order the product shares you want, I’ll order it on Sept 1st, and then I’ll cut and separate all the pieces for you.  After that I package them up in my clear acetate boxes to keep them organized and pretty and mail them to you!  It takes approx 2 weeks to receive your shares in the mail.

I hear that some of you may prefer just the paper and some may not prefer Halloween.  My ‘a la carte’ ordering of the shares will help you customize exactly what you’d like!

How to Order by August 31st to be in round 1!

As a SU Demonstrator, I have some guidelines to follow and cannot link directly to a payment/ordering page.  Please email me directly at

Linda@stampingschool.com

with your choices and then I will send you the link to pay.

New Deals on the Clearance Rack Today!

Hi all!  Popping in to tell you that there are new items listed on the SU Clearance Rack! These are products from last season that are new but retired but Stampin’ Up has some extra left over and offers them at a discount!

A few HOT items that I think might go fast:

  

Candle Border Punch  Price: $22.00 $13.20
#
142764

The stamp set that went with this set is gone BUT the basket, grass and eggs are really cute and still work great without a stamp set!

Basket Builder Framelits Dies   Price: $31.00 $18.60
#143228

Stamps are gone for these dies also but I rarely used the set!  In fact, if you search for succulents stampin’ up images, you will find stamping them first really wasn’t necessary to create gorgeous succulents!

Succulent Framelits Dies   #142757     Price: $33.00 $19.80

These are just a few!  Go to my Stampin’ Up store and browse through the deals!  Email me with item numbers or just place your order online if you see something you want.

Linda

Oh, by the way !   Many of you have asked if I will be doing a Holiday catalog paper/accessories share.  Yes I will!  Per SU policy, I cannot take payments for those until AUG 25th, so I will post those closer to that date.
