Holiday Preorder

Standard

oooo I finally made up my mind and completed my preorder for the Holiday Mini from Stampin Up!  One of the great things about being a demonstrator is that you get to preorder product before anyone else.  It’s awesome!

Anyway, my order came yesterday and I opened it for you to see.  Since doing the video I’ve already ordered some more. Yay!

Project Life Cards

Standard

I told you I would share the Hello Lovely Project Life Cards from Stampin Up!  Here is a video showing the cards and accessory pack.  I am really getting a lot of use out of these.  They make super quick and easy cards and scrapbook pages.   Love, love LOVE them!

When I first saw Project Life I thought that there is no way that such a quick and easy system could create scrapbook pages.  I was totally wrong!  These cards are fantastic!  And I use them in with my regular 12×12 scrapbook pages.  I think you will like these as much as I do.

Paper & Ink Sketch #4

Standard

Today is the release for Paper & Ink Sketch #4.  I just got the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer  Series Paper and matching Pop of Paradise Clear Mount Stamp Set.  SO.MUCH.FUN.

I used Melon Mambo Card Stock as the base.  Mats were made out of Basic Black Card Stock and then the designer paper was Pop of Pink.  The sketch called for using the Layering Circle Framlit Dies and I do not have those yet.  So I improvised and used a Stampin Up! punch I had.  I used the retired scallop punch and the 1 3/8″ circle punch.  I also used the Bow Builder Punch to make the Melon Mambo bow.  I used Melon Mambo Ink and Pop of Paradise Clear Mount Stamp Set for the hello sentiment.  I used Fast Fuse Adhesive to put the card together and Mni Glue Dots for the bow.

I did not use the embellishments for the upper right corner.  I thought it looked fantastic without.  I’m really pleased with this card as it is.

Paper & Ink Sketch #3

Standard

O my goodness!  In all my cleaning and organizing I forgot Paper & Ink Sketch #3!  Silly me 🙂  And what reminded me?  On my calendar the reminder to post #4 tomorrow.  Doh!

So here it is stampers… Paper & Ink Sketch #3!  I made my base card out of Pool Party Card Stock, mats are done in Basic Black Card Stock and the saying and background are actually NOT stamped!  That’s right, this card has absolutely NO stamping!!  I’m not kidding.  I used Hello Lovely Project Life Cards to make this card for Paper & Ink Sketch #3.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the phrase on the card front.  Second picture shows that better.  The black and white striped bow and divider was also Hello Lovely Project Life Cards, the back side of the pool party circle card.  I made the bow using the Bow Builder Punch.  This card was easy, fun and I love it!  I know you can make this too!
