Today on my Facebook Page, I demonstrated how to create a “Box in a Card”:

Watermarked1(2017-10-02-1313)

You’ll be seeing these adorable cards (with a box inserted) popping up all over the place! I used the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and Birthday Delivery stamp set to embellish the card, but my favorite detail is the Mini Bow on the top of the box.

Watermarked4(2017-10-02-1312)

I’ve been wanting to find a reason to use these bows, so I’m tickled to find that they are perfect for this box-in-a-card.

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. Set a reminder to visit http://www.mydigitalstudio.net each day!

For my friends who have already taken the plunge with MDS, you’ll be happy to hear about the new My Library App:

Let the Party Begin!

Here are the 25 stamp sets and the 25% off prices (in red)! W=Wood mounted and C=Clear Mount

But wait, there’s MORE!
Kids (and Grandmas) LOVE the Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps: Fun for cookies or playdough, and they fit perfectly in a Christmas Stocking (hint, hint)
Annndddd…don’t forget there will be a Thursday special (one day only) so the best day to shop this week will be Thursday 🙂 Put it on your calendar, set an alarm on your phone, stick a post-it to your computer with your wish list, tie a string on your finger to remind you! 
(Just in case you missed it, the $25 starter kit special has also been extended for a few more hours…until 11:59 MST tonight, October 22…
there is always room for more friends in my Stampin’ Family)

Bring on the Cake Class

Birthdays come just once a year, so wrap them up with cute cards & pretty packages!

Bring on the Cake Class

Create cards, gifts, bags & tags at this fun class on Thursday, June 27th at 10 a.m. OR 7 p.m. You’ll also take home the Birthday Cake Stamp to keep for future creating! Remember to bring scissors & adhesive (SNAIL and Sticky Strip recommended). Cost: $18. 

Also at the class: LAST CHANCE for the BOGO (Buy One, Get One) sale of my retired items! When you buy any of my retired stamps and accessories before June 30, you will get the same $amount to spend in the NEW catalog (pay shipping and tax only on the new order)!

Register for the class by June 22nd:

UPDATE: I do have many retired sets listed in the “For Sale” tab above from previous years (the prices listed there are discounted and not the prices for the BOGO event). I will not have time to upload the newest retired sets until the beginning of July, and whatever is left will be discounted and therefore not available for the BOGO offer.

Retirement: You’ve been good, but now you’re gone…

A bittersweet day at Stampin’ Up! when the Retirement List is posted: Parting is sweet sorrow for many of my favs (So long, dear stamps…for some, I never used thee!) but the anticipation to fill my shelves with NEW products cheers my heart. I will warn you as you look at the following lists: Everything is available while supplies last (some are already gone!!), so grab your highlighter and mark the ones you must have and ORDER them ASAP!

Here is an appropriate and elegant card I made at a Shoebox Swap during Convention (designed by demonstrator Sharon Fisher?) that showcases a few of the *soon-to-be-retired products:

Card Recipe:

  • Stamps: *Build a Blossom and *Word Play stamp sets
  • Ink: Basic Black and Versamark
  • Paper: Very Vanilla & Basic Black card stock, First Edition Specialty DSP (121878)
  • Accessories: *Blossom Petals punch (121808), Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402), Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder (120175), Big Shot (113439), Heat Tool (129053), Black embossing powder (109133), Dazzling Details glitter (124177),  2-Way Glue Pen (100426) and Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)

*Soon-to-be-retired products

Helpful Hints for creating a card like this:
1. Ink one side of the embossing folder with Versamark and place DSP inside and run through Big Shot to emboss design. Immediately sprinkle the wet (Versamark) side of the DSP with black embossing powder, shake off excess and heat to set.

2. After stamping, punching and assembling flower, “paint” on petals with 2-Way glue pen and sprinkle on Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Shake off excess.
