Santa’s Delivery: Holiday Decor

Over the weekend, I participated in the First Annual Kane County Crafter’s Convention in Kanab, Utah and had so much fun playing in the “Location for Creation”, as my friend Seana Johnson coined it! Seana coordinated a wickedly wonderful 1st event with Create Room, Stampin’ Up! and the Kane County Office of Tourism as sponsors, and it was an dream escape for all who attended:

My teammate Sue Stratton and I designed and prepared 8 paper crafting projects for the guests, and this was the Holiday Decor piece I created as a project for the event participants:

You can find the tray at Dollar Tree, and it makes the ideal frame for a holiday scene! Because the Santa’s Train dies can die cut the stamped images OR the images from the Santa’s Express Designer Series Paper, I demonstrated a slightly different version in my video today:

While I’m still working to get the WHOLE video to post correctly on YouTube, you can catch a second version on my Facebook Page Video, if needed.

It’s just as cute when using the Designer Series Paper:

If you choose to create this version, here’s what you’ll need (and thanks for letting me supply your creative needs!):

We All Scream for Ice Cream

I’m so pleased that you like the Ice Cream Corner Suite as much as I do! I’m all-in for any rubber stamps with a coordinating punch: It makes paper crafting so easy.

This is the last week to order the bundle or suite and receive my April 3-for-Free kit:

While the stamp set and punch will be in the 2021-22 Annual catalog, they won’t be bundled together with the 10% discount like they are right now, and the coordinating Designer Series Paper will be retiring by the end of June!

This is a card we created at our last Stamp Club…and by the way, Stamp Club begins again in MAY, and we’d love to have you JOIN THE CLUB!

Don’t limit your creativity to cards…I even used the supplies to create this with a Rusch clock from Ikea:

Here’s the video tutorial taken from my Facebook Live demonstration:

PLAID TIDINGS SUITE

Following up from my last post: The Celebration Tidings stamp set is part of the Plaid Tidings Suite in the August-December Mini Catalog and I think you need to see MORE of it because it covers so many things!

Use the products for bag toppers (see last post), greeting cards and home decor like this interchangeable, multi-season, decor frame. With an interchangeable “O” for each season, wouldn’t it be a lovely gift to enjoy all year round?

What’s New at SU! Fall Crafting

Thanks for hopping along with the What’s New at SU! blog hop. Our group of demonstrators from around the globe always inspire creativity with their projects and today we are focusing on FALL.

My husband grew over 200 stalks of Indian corn this year, so we have a LOT of beautiful ears and colorful kernels with which to decorate for all things Autumn:

IMG_3435-(W)We dried some of the corn and I put them into a small mason jar and pushed a battery-operated tea light into them. All it needed was a little ribbon and a tag to dress it up, and I will make a few more to decorate our Thanksgiving table.

When was the last time you colored directly on your stamp with Stampin’ Write Markers? I love doing this on words to achieve a rainbow effect.

IMG_3429-(W)This technique is easily done on a red rubber stamp (like our cling mount sets), but this saying was from a photopolymer set: When I colored and stamped it the first time, the colors pooled on the photopolymer, making the stamped image blotchy. So I cleaned it off with Stampin’ Mist cleaner on the Stampin’ Scrub and tried again~ the result the second time was MUCH better!

Before you hop on to Diane’s projects (or back to Heather’s), I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

A Bright Welcome to Magnolia Lane

There are iconic sights all over the world: The Eiffel Tower in Paris, the pyramids of Egypt, a great wall in China and now, the Magnolia Lane Suite by Stampin’ Up!

This collection of products has made such a mark on the crafting world that it’s becoming instantly recognizable on the shelves of discerning makers around the world! It’s certainly one of my all-time favorites.

I wanted to use the dies to create something a little different: A piece of home decor that is bright, animated and welcoming!

This was also a masterpiece we created at my Stamp Club in July. It was worth all the cutting (and the fact that I finished season 6 of “Call the Midwife” as I was cutting out hundreds of flowers for my club members).

If you want to make your own, you’ll need to cut two of the large and medium flower pieces for each of the flowers and one of the smallest flower pieces from the Magnolia Memory Dies, then simply curly them with your bone folder and layer using multipurpose liquid glue (the best adhesive for these flowers). The leaves are punched using the crafters essential Leaf Punch and the Stampin’ Up! card stock colors used are: Lovely Lipstick, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green I finished it off with two of the center starburst die cuts and a “welcome” from the Well Written Dies 

We put the flowers in a frame with a 4″x7″ opening so it bursts forth with joy:  I’m setting it on my piano by the front door for the rest of the summer!

Thanks for ordering the supplies for this project from my Stampin’ Store~ I appreciate your support of my business and hope I’ve inspired you to make one of your own.
