Introducing Suite of the Month!

The January to June 2021 catalog and Sale-a-bration 2021 brochure should be arriving in your snail mail box soon. It’s filled with lots of super awesome paper crafting products that you can use in the comfort of your stamp space. Hide in the space all you want to, once you load up on the new goodies!

I have designated 5 product Suites that will end up on my shelves because of their unique punches, cute snail mail images, splashes of purple or because ice cream is the theme. Yes, ice cream has it’s own suite!!! Coming from a former Dairy Queen employee, a cherry dipped curly top is still my favorite DQ treat!

One product suite per month will be highlighted starting in January. I hope these suites are on your shopping list because you will earn a free make and take kit when you purchase the designated suites. Then meet me in Zoom to assemble the kits while I demonstrate where all the pieces go. If you miss the Zoom social, a Youtube link will be sent to you so you can assemble the kits at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. So you will get a bundle of ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. Super Sweet!

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held on the third Wednesday of the month, 9-10am and 6:30-7:30pm, central time. I will need some time to prep your kit and mail it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll ship your make and take kit to you automatically for that month.

You are welcome to order any and all of the suites on the same order as well so you can earn and spend all the host rewards. Reach $300 in sales (excluding shipping and tax) and earn the host only stamp set, Punch Party. If your order stays under $150 (excluding shipping and tax), please use the host code 9PMQVYRN when ordering.

Here are the Suites being featured each month with links to my online store and using host code 9PMQVYRN. All page numbers refer to the January-June 2021 catalog.

January – Snail Mail Suite, pages, 54-55, featuring those cute snails I mentioned!

February – Ice Cream Corner Suite, pages 48-49, a bright and warm color palette and ice cream cone punch!

March – Hydrangea Hill Suite, pages 18-19, 2 shades of purple pearls and purple acetate sheets!

April – Dandy Garden Suite, pages 24-27, a dragonfly punch in 2 sizes! Build your own suite to reach a minimum of $50 in orders (excluding shipping and tax). I will be using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (stamp set and punch) for the make and takes. So you might consider purchasing this bundle so you can create along with me.

May – Oval Occasions, page 65, 2 sizes of ovals in one punch! Build your own suite to reach a minimum of $50 in orders (excluding shipping and tax).

If you are not interested in these suites, I’ll still reward you with a different set of make and take kits with a qualifying order through the Social Cookie Social program. Click here for details on the Sugar Cookie Social program.

Split Circle Technique

The split circle technique makes a quick and easy WOW design. Just remember to have contrasting colors for the circle layers. My design features the Snowflake Splendor pattern paper contrasted against the silver foil sheets.

Use the Stitched Shapes framelits for added interest. Metallic Mesh ribbon makes a nice bow. A row of silver Metallic Pearls adds the final details.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Snowflake Splendor


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 December Celebrations. You may have arrived from Sandy’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Best laid plans change. I love the Snowflake Splendor Suite. When I initially created this blog post, my plan was to use this suite. But then I got to designing without consulting my notes and came up with these square acetate box designs which are perfectly sized for a couple of candy store chocolate treats.

one for Christmas using a pattern from the Forever Greenery paper pack…

one for Valetine’s using the red velvet 12×12 inch paper…

Both use the beaded pearl trio embellishments found in the August-December mini-catalog. Snap them up quick because they did not make it into the January-June mini-catalog.

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.


Here is a list of hoppers in case you get off the trail…
