I survived the busy weekend and managed not to sneeze during the (recorded) concert.  This cold is really dragging on!  Here are some more cards featuring the Palette O Prints paper (May special).  I made these to send my downline so they could have a sample.  And while I was at it, I made some […]

I had a bunch of leftover little scraps of the new Palette o Prints designer paper and wanted to put them to use.  So here is the project I came up with: 1.  Place a ruler at the top of where you want your border of strips.  Run a line of SNAIL (monoadhesive) just below […]

Ribbon Butterfly

I think that these butterflies made with the SU Ribbon Originals were first introduced at an SU Regional training seminar last fall.  Since the Sweet Shop ribbons are a perfect match for the new Palette o Prints designer paper, this was a perfect time to give one a try! 1.  Cut 2 inch pieces of […]

Treat Pouch tutorial

The instructions for this treat pouch are from an old issue of our demonstrator magazine.  Someone on SCS suggested that it would be a good project to showcase the new double-sided papers in the Palette-O-Prints (May special).  Since the papers in this sample pack are 6×6, I have scaled back from the original 8×8 pattern.

My preorder of the Palette-O-Prints (May Special) came today.   Oh what fun creativity is ahead!  I love the monochromatic look and the pretty patterns of the double-sided paper.  Notice how they match the colors of the Sweet Shop Ribbons. Here is my first creation – using the Rose Red and Certainly Celery colors.  THis is for […]

It’s hard to find stampin’ time, now that the weather is finally nice!  I did have to put together a make and take for a demonstration on scrapbooking for my MOMS group this week.  I found inspiration from the Stampin’ Up! Workshop Wizard for demonstrators.  I want everyone to try out our cool punches and […]

SCS was down for a few hours this morning (torture!) and so was my blog.  But everything is fine now.  I am testing this blog service for SCS, so it is run through their server.  I spent my stamping time yesterday designing a stamp camp project for a convention swap.  It turned out really cool […]

This set is my favorite of all the hostess sets.  I will be sad to see it gone when the new catalog comes out in July 1.  But I have seen all the new hostess sets and they are very cool too!  One of the new Level 3 sets even comes with 2 jumbo wheels!  […]
