Upcoming life event to prepare paper crafts for?

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

Birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, baby showers and bridal parties need a little extra something that paper crafting provides to make the celebration extra special and memorable. A party favor wrap or tag, invitations and thank you notes hand stamped with the perfect coordinating color and image and party decor are all items that can be created using on trend Stampin’ Up! products.

Whether you have a lot to create or just a few, you can enjoy a stamping discount on all your purchases when you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator on my team. What defines you as a demonstrator may change over time and as your interests shift. That’s ok. I’ll be here to help you along your stamp journey as your needs change whether you just want to add to your stamping stash or want to share stamping with others.

If buying at a discount appeals to you, then Sale-a-bration season is the best time to sign up! You pick up to $175 of products which will only cost you $99 plus tax! The shipping is free on the starter kit for an additional $17.50 in savings! The second welcome kit option includes a Craft and Carry tote with enough space and pockets to pack for an afternoon of crafting away from your home hub. The second option is $129 with free shipping too!

Here is the tote…

I am looking for at least one person to join my team by February 28th which will help me maintain my title. So if you are considering the opportunity to purchase at a discount, please do so by February 28th! Sign up is processed online through this link. Make sure my name is in the upper right hand corner so you are signing up to be on my team.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Grown With Kindness

28701642_10216314905810036_5229522907894174650_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the February Paper Pumpkin kit, Grown with Kindness, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from June Olsen’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to line our 3×6 inch gusset bag with one of the printed layers included in the kit. The treat will be “hidden” in the bag behind the printed layer.

About 4 mini 100 Grand candy bars fit inside the bag once the bag is opened.

Cut the patterned piece of paper to 3 and 7/8th inches parallel to the long side. Then score at 2 inches parallel to the short side.

The long piece that was cut off from the main piece serves as a backer to the fresh fig banner. Use the Everyday Label punch to create a tag from one of the cardstock pieces. It has a pretty, neutral design printed on it already. Attach all the pieces of the tag using the included dimensionals. Tie a bow from the included ribbon. Add a dew droplet too from the kit contents.

3 6 19bh4-001

Did you notice the mirror reflection in the punch? It says a FREE Stamp Set is included in every March kit to celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s 6th birthday. Yah! Make sure to subscribe by March 10th with your demonstrator. Or pick me as your demonstrator if you don’t already have a demonstrator so you can get in on the March kit and your free stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! produces a fast time motion Youtube video to show kit assembly as intended for the visual learners out there, including me!

Thank you for joining us as we share the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to Deb Naylor’s blog to see what she designed.

Ink, Stamp and Share Sale-a-bration 2019

42535194_10156676672352208_1759988314120650752_n

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created using Sale-a-bration 2019 products. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from     Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

I decided to do a custom fold over revealing the sentiment and sequin. Just fold back once, bone fold along the edge, then fold back to create a flap for the bow. See the piece hanging off the end along the left side? Fold that around the card and secure with a glue dot.

All the supplies used…interchange the flower adhesive backed sequins with the circle sequins. They are an easy embellishment to use! Use the paper piercing tool to position the sequins on your project.

Stamping on a budget solution for you

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

Long time ago my Mom and my sister Tricia were introduced to stamping and Stampin’ Up! We quickly joined the followers because of the coordinating papers, inks and embellishments delivered right to our front door. We collected stamp sets along the way too. I still have many of my favorites waiting to be used on scrapbook pages.

We supported other demonstrators in the beginning. Eventually I decided to start enjoying a discount on my purchases (so I could buy more stamps with the same amount of cash!) and signed up to be a demonstrator 15 years ago. Tricia signed up to be a demonstrator a few years ago. Our cousin signed up during this Sale-a-bration season. How exciting!

Now as you are looking at your stamping shopping list, would you like to buy more items for the same amount of cash? You can! Sale-a-bration season is the best time to sign up! You pick up to $175 of products which will only cost you $99 plus tax! The shipping is free on the starter kit for an additional $17.50 in savings! The second welcome kit option includes a Craft and Carry tote with enough space and pockets to pack for an afternoon of crafting away from your home hub. The second option is $129 with free shipping too!

Sale-a-bration 2019 Paper Crafting Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring Sale-a-bration 2019 products. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Anastasia Radloff’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to make it easy on myself and use the fabulous Botanical Butterfly designer series paper as the focal point on the hand stamped greeting card. There are lots of already colored butterflies in large and medium sizes on this sheet. Just use a Stampin’ Up! paper snips to cut around the wings and voila! Instant beauty!

2 18 19bh1-001

Stamp a flourish from the Falling Flowers stamp set and “a little note” from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in balmy blue ink. Use a sponge dauber to highlight the berries in grapefruit grove ink. Change out the inks and cardstock layers to match the colors of the butterfly for cheerful cards.

After I created this post, I thought the card could use a few extra touches. So I swabbed Wink of Stella on the butterfly and embossed the highland heather layer using the Dot to Dot embossing folder.

All the supplies used…plus the Wink of Stella and the Dot to Dot embossing folder. The Faceted Dots name in English was cut off when I sized the photo. Now you know how to say it in a few other languages too:)
