***Bonus Days end soon! I have lots more projects to share that I made with the favorite “Come Sail Away” product suite by Stampin’ Up. First, the Memories & More cards are awesome.  They are in 2 sizes – 3×4 and 4×6 and come with a few sticker sheets too.  Look at the gorgeous laser […]

Want to see my swap cards from the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip?  I  documented my trip in my last post.  Swaps are an important part of every Stampin’ Up! event, including the upcoming OnStage in multiple locations around the world.  If you love traveling and meeting up with like-minded crafters, we’d love to have you […]

I’m writing this at 5am, maybe still a little jet-lagged from the Stampin’ Up! Greek Isles Incentive Trip?  The trip was absolutely amazing.  The best part was hanging out with demonstrators from all over the US and the world in fabulous surroundings. We were so happy to treat our husbands to this trip.  With some […]

I’m heading on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip, but I promised instructions for my  Magnolia Lane Box in a Bag – #loveitchopit style.   I found instructions online for both larger and smaller purses.  But I wanted regular cards to fit inside, yet saving paper by using 4″ pieces.  So I figured it out myself!  (See […]

Did you notice the fun border die and stamp in the Good Morning, Magnolia bundle? Here are just a couple ideas for you. The Magnolia 3D embossing folder adds some nice texture to the card background.  I added a little Petal Pink ink with a sponge dauber. And here are some cards made by Stampin’ […]

Continuing with the Magnolia Lane by Stampin’ Up! theme, I tried a little Paper Toile. Layers of Paper Piecing were added to form the blossom.  I curled up the edges a bit too. And here’s another blossom with dimension, made using the dies.  I adapted this bag in a box holder to fit a set […]

Doesn’t the Magnolia look lovely embossed in copper? And here I used the whitewash technique (blender pen and white […]
