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 Thinking of You projects with girls in mind. You may have arrived from Krissi Hannah’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Dandy Garden Suite features the best product in the January to June catalog…the Dandy Laser Cut Papers! There are 2 sheets of laser cuts in a package. I used the top middle laser cut on my design today.

See how the laser cut dragonfly adds instant wow…

Mat the Blackberry Bliss cardstock with Soft Suede cardstock and add a Ladybug trinket as shown in the card are on the right. Or leave off the card for a simple stamping look.

My Youtube video shows how it came together…

Dandy Garden April Suite of the Month!

The January to June 2021 catalog is filled with lots of super awesome paper crafting products. I have banded with a group of global demonstrators to offer a super awesome Suite of the Month program using products from this catalog!

One product suite per month will be highlighted. The April suite is the Dandy Garden Suite on pages 24-27 of the January to June catalog. Purchase the Dandy Garden Suite or the Garden Wishes bundle or the Dragonfly Garden bundle plus product to get your order over $50 (excluding shipping and tax)and I’ll mail you 2 make alongs kits. The Youtube assembly videos will be emailed 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 via Youtube videos. 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 6-7pm, 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.

Please use host code VJUUXGDK if your order stays under $150 (excluding shipping and tax). Remove the host code if your order is over $150 so you can redeem all the host rewards.

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

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. If you are doing a build your own suite, make sure to include the Dandy Laser Cut Paper pack so you get the delicate dragonfly laser cuts to work with! I won’t be including the laser cuts in your kits due to the nature of how they are packaged for customer use (a few of each laser cut per package).

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).

Additional suites for the summer months will be announced after I receive my copy of the new annual catalog that goes live on May 4th.

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.

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.

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 6-7pm, central time.

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 EUNVSZHN when ordering.

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