Valentines Aren’t Just for Lovers

The season of love doesn’t have to be limited to one single significant other. This is a wonderful time to recognize friendships as well, and I’d submit that your girlfriends might appreciate hearts and flowers much more than your man would!

This is a Valentine that you could add photos, notes or gift cards to, and is part of an envelope banner you’ll create at my “Craft Your HEART Out” class coming on January 26th, but it’s perfect by itself:

It’s an accordion fold that spills out when opened, with spaces to write personal notes, add photos, or insert gifts or gift cards into smaller envelopes:

The “All My Love” Designer Series Paper in the NEW OCCASIONS Catalog is richly romantic and you’ll think of so many ways to use it: For wedding cards, gifts, home decor, etc. And don’t miss the coordinating All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.

You’re invited to attend my Craft Your Art Out class: Check out the details HERE!

You may fall in love with the whole suite of products!

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

A Paper Easter Basket

Easter is going to sneak up on us this year, as it is the 1st day of April and doesn’t us give much time for planning ahead once the calendar changes! No better time than now to do some Easter-themed crafting:

Watermarked1(2018-03-06-1503)

The Blossoming Basket bundle was love-at-first-sight: That Basket Weave embossing folder sparked such imagination!!blossoming basket bundle

It’s a bundle of products you can choose for Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration (January 3-March 31, 2018) FREE with a $100 order! You could wait and purchase the embossing folder from the new catalog (coming in June), but why pay for it when you can get it at no cost?! And the stamp set is only available now.

I showed how to make this simple basket in my

Facebook Lunchtime Crafting LIVE video

yesterday, so feel free to pop over there to watch, but I actually like the smaller size better than the big one I did on the video, so start with an 8-1/2″ square piece of Soft Suede card stock (any color will work, really) for the basket base and score it at 2-7/8″ on all four sides. You’ll also need a 1″ x 11″ strip for the handle and 6 pieces that are 2-1/2″ (or 2-5/8″) square to emboss with the basket weave on the sides. Then you can follow the rest of the directions I shared to come up with a good sized basket like the smaller one in front:

Watermarked2(2018-03-06-1503)

Multipurpose Liquid Glue was the easiest to adhere the weave to the sides of the basket before assembling and to add the handle after you staple the sides together.

Yellow roses colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends are so cheerful in the embellishment on the side! I demonstrated a little trick to give them dimension in the video. Don’t be afraid to fussy-cut some of these pieces: They look beautiful even if they aren’t perfect. Watermarked3(2018-03-06-1504)

Thanks for purchasing the supplies to create your own from my Stampin’ Store! and remember that you can select Sale-a-Bration products FREE with each $50 or $100 order through March 31, 2018.

They were simple to assemble and can smash flat to mail in a card as a delightful surprise! All you need are a few supplies:
Product List

And here’s a quick tutorial I created to show you how easy and fast they are!

Easy Easel Daisy Card

When you stamp a card, you hope the recipient to enjoy longer than a store-bought card, and one way to do this is to let your card double as desktop decor:

Watermarked3(2017-08-16-1222).jpg

I chose to use the Daisy Delight Bundle (along with the Label Me Pretty Bundle) because it’s BACK IN STOCK and you really can’t live without it. Plus, each stamp set co-ordinates with a punch, and when you get them as a bundle, you save 10%.

See how easy this is?

Thanks for shopping in my Stampin’ Store when you need quality crafting supplies! I love serving you as you craft creative connections.
