Save the Date!

If you like watching demonstrations using current Stampin’ Up! products, then save the date for the March 13th Global SU Share Fair! We start with demonstrators from Australia, move to the United Kingdom and then hop over the pond for the Canadian and United States demonstrators. Best part is you can watch from the comfort of your stamp space and recreate the projects using your supplies. Replay is available so you can catch the ones you are sleeping through:)

Videos are shared via a private Facebook group and is an exclusive benefit for being a customer of mine. Simply ask me to join the group via the Contact button on my blog and I will verify that you have placed a product order with me. Or place an order through the Shop Now buttons on my blog if you have yet to become a customer of mine. Then, you are in the group! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

My sneak peek is that I will be using the stamp set Enjoy the Moment along with the In Good Taste designer series paper. Designs are swirling in my head but have yet to put stamps to ink and paper. It will be fabulous though!

Fancy Corner Card Kits in the Mail on sale now!

My next Kits in the Mail card design is a fun one! Who am I kidding, they are all fun!;) It’s a somewhat interactive card. So share it with a person that would enjoy figuring out how it displays. It’s called a Fancy Corner Card that folds twice, then around and flaps down for a pleated look.

I designed 2 completely different styles that showcase our fun products. The first card features springtime flowers and colors with a secret space for a personal message.

The second card has an open barnyard look with the assistance from our NEW Hey Birthday Chick stamp set and Birthday Chick dies. Of course, one card features purple, yay for purple chicks! If you really like the chick images, you are certainly welcome to add a stamped chick to the floral card instead of the stamped flower.

Supplies are included in the kit as shown below. No hand stamped images will be included in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy. Please note there may be substitutions as I run through my stock.

Kits are available for immediate shipping. Cost is $10 via PayPal. Order by clicking below and paying with your preferred method. Kits will be sent to the shipping address listed in your PayPal invoice. Please let me know when you pay your invoice if the shipping address needs to be changed. I suggest ordering your kit while you are reading this so you have your kits in time to craft along with me! Then join me during the One of a Kind Facebook Live event on March 20th to assemble your kit. I’ll post an assembly video to my Youtube channel as well after March 20th.

Paper Crafting Blog Touch of Ink

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you showcasing exclusive, free products you can earn with qualifying orders. You may have arrived from Nancy’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I paired the Touch of Ink Sale-a-bration stamp set with the Forever Flowers pattern paper from the annual catalog.

I used a modified Rock n Roll technique to color the hummingbird. Ink the image in Crumb Cake. Then Rock n Roll Shaded Spruce on the belly and Night of Navy on the wings. Yep, ink is transferred to the acrylic block. Just wipe with a tissue to keep your fingers clean.

My Youtube video shows how it came together…

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy’s blog and see what fun project she designed.

February Sugar Cookie Social Kits are in the Mail Today

Good Morning! I stuffed my mailbox today with packets of Sugar Cookie Social make and take kits. Good thing cardstock does not care if it’s negative degrees outside because it’s freezing out there! If you have placed a $50 or more order excluding shipping and tax this month, your kit is on the way. You can still place orders and I’ll ship the February packet to you promptly.

Meet me on Zoom, next Wednesday, February 24th, 9-10am or 6-7pm, to assemble the kits. I’ll include a Youtube link for kit assembly as well when I email the Zoom link.

Why do I call these session Sugar Cookie Socials? Click here for the story. Bring your tea, coffee and a sweet treat to share what you enjoy for refreshments. It’s fun to see differences in region and taste.

How do you get an invitation to join the social? Purchase at least $50 (excluding shipping and tax) using the host code listed on the right side of my blog (current code is EUNVSZHN). If your order is over $150, do not use a host code so you can spend all the host rewards yourself. Either method will earn you an invitation to join the social for that month and a snail mailed make and take packet from me. Order early in the month so there is time for me to prep your kits and for them to make the journey from my mail box to yours so you can join the Zoom call fun:)

The kits will change each month. I am revealing snippet of one of the kits below…I hope you like it!

Any questions? Click the Contact button on my blog to send me a note. Thank You!
