This card is EXPLODING with blackberries and it couldn’t be sweeter (unless they were real blackberries):
It was created with my FAVORITE Sale-a-Bration 2021 product: The Berry Blessing Bundle is a stamp set AND matching Designer Series Paper that you can choose FREE with a $100 order during January-February… PLUS it coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry bundle (my January set of the month).
When you open the card, the pops open! It’s very simple to make and I created a video tutorial (taken from a live video on my CJBL Facebook page today) so you can make your own:
I have a thing for FRUIT (Creative JUICE, after all) and I love a coordinating punch, so it comes as no surprise that the FIRST thing on my list from the January-June Catalog was the SWEET STRAWBERRY bundle:
Stampin’ Up! made it SWEETER when they offered the Berry Blessings Bundle as a FREE choice during Sale-a-Bration for a $100 order…a coordinating stamp set to my beloved strawberries AND matching Designer Series Paper? YES THANK YOU!
Naturally, I’ve been playing with it night and day since I got it. I dream about berries! Yesterday, I made this card so I could see both sides of the Designer Series Paper and you can watch the tutorial to make your own version.
If you are as obsessed with these beautiful berries as I am, you’ll be happy to know that the Sweet Strawberry bundles is my 3 for Free kit in January 2021: When you order the bundle from my stampin’ store, I’ll send you the consumable supplies to create 3 projects with your new bundle ~OR~ you can come to my JAM-BERRY class in Utah County on January 23rd and stamp your projects in person with me for free!)
You will need a few items on hand to complete the projects. These items will not be included in the kit:
Ink Pads: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Real Red, Garden Green, Granny Apple Green, Tuxedo Black Memento, Whisper White Craft ink -OR- Versamark pad.
If the Sweet Strawberry bundle is on your list for “later”, move it to the top so you can take advantage of the opportunity to get the Berry Blessings bundle during Sale-a-Bration AND my 3 for Free projects!
When a stamp set works for more than one season, it’s a great investment. When you can get it in a bundle with dies that could be used for ANYTHING, it’s as good as if you had invested in ZOOM in 2019.
I’ve chosen this collection of products to be my “3 for Free” class in September 2020: When you purchase the Plaid Tidings Suite from my Stampin’ Store, I’ll send you the consumable supplies to create 3 projects and the tutorial for the projects will hit your email inbox before the supplies arrive in your mailbox!
It was delightful to invent this new fun fold~ calling it the Label Flap Card:
Here’s the video tutorial…count it as ANOTHER card you can create with your new supplies!
The Christmas version of the same card:
There are a few things you’ll need to complete the 3-for-Free class kit. You may substitute ink colors or adhesives you already have in your craft studio as well as a compatible die cutting machine (like the Big Shot). If you need any of these supplies, you may add them to your order at the same time.
This is a card you send to someone you really *really* REALLY love… and they are going to love it, too!
We made this at our July stamp club so you don’t need to be cautious to try it: It’s easier than it looks and the trick is to cut the basic pieces first.
Once you’ve made one Theater Card, you’ll want to make another. I’m here to make it easier for you with a video tutorial and cutting guide (see below).
Before I give you the cutting instructions, I wanted to tell you that today is World Day against Human Trafficking: Did you know we have more people enslaved now than ANY other time in the world? And of the 30 million current slaves, 10 million are children? I’ve supported Operation Underground Rescue as my primary charity since I learned about this pernicious plague 3 years ago, so I’m linking arms again today and tomorrow with O.U.R. to help make a difference and your order will help!
Thank you for considering how to help make a difference and Rise Up for the children. Now on to the instructions for your Theater Card pieces.
Cut the following pieces from the same color of card stock:
(2) 4-1/4” x 5-1/2”
(2) 4” x 5-3/8” scored in landscape position at 1-1/16” and 2-5/8” (watch video for instructions to cut slits)
(2) 6-1/4” x 3/4” strips, scored on each end at 1”
(1) 1-1/4” x 4-1/4” trimmed to an i-Beam (see video)
Designer Series Paper (DSP)
5-1/4” x 4” for front of card
3” x 4” for back of “stage”
3/4” x 4” for front of I-Beam (optional)
Layer the largest piece of DSP on the front of a 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” panel (don’t adhere them together yet). Use the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a window in the front of both
Adhere the DSP frame to card stock frame, and cut the piece of DSP from the inside of the frame in half to use for the “curtain” later.
Use the Multipurpose liquid glue: It has some “wiggle room” while it is wet, then a firm bond once it dries.
Combining unique techniques to create a one-of-a-kind card is so gratifying– This is one I shared on my Facebook Lunchtime Live Crafting a few Mondays ago and I finally edited the video tutorial to share with you!
It’s a Split Panel card with a Mason Jar Shaker Dome and you can make it in many colors~ I used the 2020-2022 In Colors.
You may have noticed the second one ISN’T a shaker card…I gave the one from the video away!
You can watch and follow along in the video to create your own:
You can order all the supplies to create this card from my Stampin’ Store. Let me know if you try it and how you love it!
Sale-a-Bration 2020 is is FULL SWING and today I’m sharing a few projects made with the coolest Kats: The Gang’s All Meer stamp set was the first stamp set I chose for free with my initial S-A-B order!
Yesterday I demonstrated this card on my Lunchtime Crafting Live that happens each Monday on my Creative Juice Facebook Page:
Isn’t that adorable? And it’s super simple to make.
I though it would also be fun to make a gift pouch from the Stampin’ Up! Pillow Boxes with these cute kats:
It’s the right size for a gift card and candy bar, or jewelry and other small gifts!
The Gang’s All Meer stamp set is only available during Sale-a-Bration 2020 and is FREE with a $50 purchase from my Stampin’ Store. There are many options for S-A-B rewards in addition to this stamp set, and remember that they are while supplies last, or until March 31, 2020! It’s the perfect time to stock up on your stamping supplies.
Thanks for visiting and take the time to create something beautiful today!
I announced that during August 2019, anyone who ordered the Above the Clouds bundle from my Stampin’ Store will get 3 exclusive card tutorials via email PLUS I will mail them the paper goods to create those 3 cards at the end of the month!
Here’s a peek at the cards…and one of them is a fabulous fun fold:

You will also need an Aquapainter OR Blender Pen and a Stampin’ Sponge.
Don’t miss the opportunity to get your 3 Above the Clouds card supplies and tutorial FREE: Order the bundle by August 31st from my Stampin’ Store!
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:
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:
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?
