Fold-Flat Box

I have a great excuse for being MIA over the past 6 weeks: WE MOVED! Just to a new house in the same city, but downsizing was a big effort (one that we are continuing to work at…hoping I will be able to park in the garage before Halloween!)

July has TWO awesome promotions ~ I’ll share them with you just in time to take advantage of either or both:

DSP_SALE_ENG

Each Monday in July, I’ve been sharing ways to use Designer Series Paper in your crafting on my Facebook Live Lunchtime Crafting broadcast! Today I showed how to create this amazing Flat-Fold Box:

WARNING: You won’t be able to stop with just one box: These are addicting to make and you’ll want to make a whole bunch to have on hand to pop open and put together when you need them!

Along the long side, the score lines are at 1-3/4″, 5″, 6-3/4″ and 10″
Along the short end, score at 1-3/4″ and 6-3/4″

I used the Tropical Escape DSP for the top of the box and the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set:

You can mix and match Designer Series Paper during the sale so you can stock up on pretty patterns to compliment all your paper crafting.

Finally, how would you like to choose $192* in Stampin’ Up! products for just $99?

That’s what you get when you join my Stampin’ Team in July!

* $125 in products plus a collection of 10 ink pads

Come join me: BOTH offers end at 11:59 MST on July 31, 2018 so there’s no time to waste!

Everything is AWESOME…in August: Big Shot with FREE Bundles!

Hear that? It’s the sound of summer speeding by…and I’m not going to bore you with my excuses for being absent today. Instead, I’m going to shout that EVERYTHING IS AWESOME in August!

www.blog.thecraftyowl.co.uk/post/2014/02/25/Everything-is-Awesome!-Lego-Movie-Punch-Art
(This card was created by UK SU! demonstrator Joanne James and if you click on it, it will take you to her blog, with the supplies she used to create it.)
WHY is August so AWESOME, you may ask?
http://bit.ly/bigshotbundle

That’s why! If you don’t have a Big Shot, you must consider it an essential Back-to-School tool to purchase this month–The bundles essentially make the machine 1/2 price! And if you are one of the wise crafters who already own a Big Shot, you can save 15% when you purchase the bundles separately from the machine.

Here are my Top 5 reasons to love the Big Shot:

  1.  The Big Shot cuts and/or embosses, taking your projects to a new level of lovely. 
  2. It can cut shapes from over 70 materials (including fabric, magnet sheets and pop cans, so you are being GREEN when you use it and recycling, too)
  3. The Big Shot is super easy to use…and cranking the handle counts as (light) exercise.
  4. It doesn’t need electricity (So when the power goes out, the crafting continues)!
  5. The framelits that coordinate with the stamps solve the challenge of cutting out by hand and seriously, that’s worth it’s price in gold.

I’m off to make you some cute samples that will make you NEED the Big Shot… or if you are ready to discover crafting Nirvana today, go to my stampin’ store to place your order 🙂

Polka Dots on My Paper Pumpkin

I was pretty excited about the February Paper Pumpkin kit! Since I needed a bag for a thank you gift, I pulled it out and played with it today.

As I was assembling the letters to say “THANKS”, I realized that the piece of paper they came on was a perfect polka dot template:

You do need to flip it around to get each corner, but it worked perfectly with a little sponging. I guess you could use the Pistachio Pudding ink spot that came with the kit to do this, too, but I didn’t think of it until afterward.

Since it was a flower-themed gift, I just punched out a few flowers with the Fancy Flower punch (item #118073) for the letters and everything else was in the kit!

The lighting seems a little weird today, so apologies for that, but I think you get the idea 🙂

Here’s a look at the February Kit (unless you just signed up for Paper Pumpkin, in which case you received the Welcome Kit):

Thanks for choosing Loni Spendlove as your demonstrator when you sign up for Paper Pumpkin! And FYI: signing up before March 31, 2014 means you get a set of markers FREE in your Welcome Kit…

When One Party Ends, Another Begins…

Not surprisingly, we like to celebrate at Stampin’ Up! And having been around for 25 years, that’s something to commemorate, certainly 🙂

In keeping with that theme, here are a few awesome products on sale for one week (click pic to shop)

It never ceases to amaze me what people can create with a little rubber, ink and paper…now I just revel in the incredible ways you can manipulate a little card stock. But Stampin’ Up! isn’t ONLY about rubber stamps: It’s about handmade gifts, unique home decor, gorgeous packaging and preserving memories.

While I resisted the move to digital scrapbooking, I have to say that I don’t regret coming to the “dark side” one bit! With My Digital Studio from Stampin’ Up! there are INFINITE crafting possibilities outside of memory albums! My next project is going to be a family recipe book and watch for a blog post coming soon about a really fun gift idea you can personalize for your friends…

So with that introduction: HAVE YOU TRIED My Digital Studio? With a price of just $19.95, you don’t really have an excuse NOT to try it…but just in case you are hesitant, you can try it FREE for 30 days by downloading it here.

The best news is the Digital Party we are getting started TODAY~

Now is the time to print your own Christmas Cards, yearly scrapbook or prepare for a “December Daily” with a template that will make your Christmas merry…VERY! Not only are select digital and print products on sale, but we are starting a week of Digital Delights from November 1-November 8~  including a FREE download on Saturday, Nov. 2.
