20 years ago my sweet friend Ann had been a customer for a while and finally had to ask me if she could be a demonstrator…and of COURSE I said YES! And what a journey we’ve been on together. It’s the greatest of blessings from sharing what you love when you find a like-hearted friend!
The colors I used were Daffodil Delight, Eggplant Envy, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Cucumber Crush and can I tell you that EVERYONE needs the Number of Years bundle to celebrate moments that COUNT?!? So incredibly versatile!
Thanks for visiting: Create something beautiful today to share with someone you love!
P.S. Before you have to ask me (like Ann did), I’d be over the moon if you wanted to become a demonstrator on my team, too 🙂 Join before March 31, 2016 and choose $30 more in your starter kit for Sale-a-Bration (that’s $155 in products for only $99!)
Welcome to another edition of “5 Ways on Fridays” where you will learn unique and different ways to use a Stampin’ Up! product!
Today we are talking about Fringe Scissors Certain projects are easier when you have the right tools and this is one of those tools: Every time you squeeze the handles of your fringe scissors together, you are cutting not once, not twice, but FIVE TIMES! Talk about conserving energy 🙂
“What can I do with them besides making grass?” you may be asking yourself. You’ve come to the right place!
1. Fringe scissors make Ombre Fringe cards and tags in a jiffy! For this tag, I used Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Island Indigo card stock, along with the new Tag Topper punch:
While you are “fringing”, check out this adorable Fringe Chandeliermade by Lauren Elise for the Knotty Bride:
2. Create a crepe paper garland! This tutorial from Yesterday on Tuesday shows a few different styles and hello! This is super fast with your fringe scissors:
3.Flowers or “pom poms” are adorable accents to any project.
Lisa Brown from inkandinspirations shows you how fun and easy these are to make using Stampin’ Up! Crepe Filter Paper:
4. If you cut across your fringe the opposite way, you end up with CONFETTI!
At Stampin’ Up! Leadership last month, Shelli demonstrated how to create a shaker card using the confetti made with fringe scissors: Cut the corner of a clear envelope to the size you need (in this case, just a smidge taller than the photo frame die cut). Stamp image on top of clear envelope with Stazon, then seal the confetti in with a thin strip of sticky strip. Place behind the die cut and voila! Shake away!
5. A strip of fringe from Designer Series Paper or crepe paper is easy to adhere around a curved object like a basket or hat brim:
For these medallions, I just punched two circles and cut in from the edge. I used two because when you cut into the circle, some of the pieces fall off and it’s not perfectly round, so layering them gives the illusion they are still circles 🙂
At just $9.95, these scissors are an awesome addition to your crafting toolbox! Order your Fringe Scissors in my Stampin’ Up! store today and start living on the edge 🙂
Mother’s Day. Teacher appreciation. Just because. Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There’s no watering, no weeding-just enjoying. This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
As if that weren’t enough, the kit contains a “baker’s dozen”! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn’t normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library. Anyone you encounter on your way that you’d like to give a little “thank you” to-and introduce them to Stampin’ Up!
Sometimes words just speak for themselves: That’s how I feel about the new “Feel Goods” stamp set in the Spring Catalog! The quotes are uplifting and positive, and don’t we each know someone who could use a little encouragement or appreciation? The challenge is sometimes how to create the card with words as the focal point. Here’s one idea I wanted to share with you today:
Go ahead, make someone “Feel Good” by sending them a card today!
