Last Chance to Sale-A-Brate with Designer Series Paper

Posted: Thursday, March 28th, 2019 @ 9:58 am in Projects | No Comments »

There are several Designer Papers on the Sale-a-bration freebie list.  I confess – I am a DSP junkie.  IMO, nothing adds more to a project than some beautiful paper. First up is the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. Also in the Annual Catalog for purchase, it adds quick elegance to the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards […]

Stampin’ Up! is having a fun monthly challenge called #simplestamping. It’s just stamps, ink and paper – quick and easy!

Premature Retirement – Supply and Demand for Dies

Posted: Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 @ 8:00 am in Projects | No Comments »

As you may have gathered, Stampin’ Up! bundles (stamps plus dies) have become one of our most popular products.  Stamp sets are made in house, but dies and punches must be manufactured overseas.  Due to some issues with the supplier, some retiring dies have (and will) sell out early. Already gone: frog, cupcake, doily, bunny […]

I made some fun interactive cards with the So Hoppy Together Stamp set.  They just make me smile! I’m so happy that Stampin’ Up! made matching dies.  I would get the dies quickly – they are already sold out in Europe. The Daisy spins and the lower right card has googly eyes. Here are the […]

I made lots of framed art and cards using the gorgeous Floral Romance suite of products by Stampin’ Up!   I had a few scraps left over that were begging to be used: Well here’s what happened next: I used sentiments from the Butterfly Gala and Humming Along stamp sets.  The embossing folder is a new […]
