2019 Stampin’ UP! Holiday Catty is LIVE!

OMG everyone, if you did not receive the holiday catty in the mail, please send me an email to request to be added to the list. Be sure to provide me your mailing address.

You are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE the products in this catalog. My fav…well, if you know me at all …it’s all the paper!! The Let it Snow DSP on page 20 has the cutest snowmen mittens (not that we need those in Floriday…LOL) and the photo ‘realisticness’ of the Feels Like Frost DSP on page 42 is absolutely stunning!

If you’d like to join us for World Card Making Day on October 5th, we’re going to be using both of these designers series papers and so much more to create 4 holiday projects. Be sure to check out the calendar page and RSVP to reserve your spot.

If you didn’t receive a catalog in the mail, you can download it here 20190904_HOL19_en-US!

Bird Ballad DSP with the Delicate Lace Edgelits Makes a Great Pair!

There have been so many cards and 3D projects made since the launch of the 2019 – 2020 Stampin’ UP! annual catalog but I couldn’t help myself but to create a version for myself and my class participants. The delicate lace edgelits makes a beautiful frame to the punch out of one of the birds from the Bird Ballad DSP.

Here’s a FREE tutorial for you to make one for yourself…or make 2 so you can keep one and send one to someone you love!

Christmas in July Pop-Up Envelope Cards

For a July 2016 challenge, we were asked to create a “Christmas in July” themed “some-thing-or-other” (no one ever says you have to just make cards). While spending time brainstorming, my 7 year old grand daughter popped in and asked if she could help me and this project was born!

For full instructions, click here: Mini Envelope Cards

My grand daughter made the penguin and the snowman!

Project Product List:

NOTE: Stampin’ UP! no longer sells the 2.5″ circle punch but to make this product large enough for a gift cards, you could purchase the Layering Circles.

If you would like to see a ‘how-to’ on any type of paper crafting project, send me a note and I will add it to my tutorials.

Taking it Old School

Happy Birthday, Birthday Card, papercrafting, card making

I am going to be telling my age here but there was a time in my life when smart phones, cell phones, Blackberry’s or iPhone’s didn’t exist. My family moved to Florida and away from my cousins and grandmother and the only way to keep in touch was through letters and cards. There wasn’t any texting or FaceTime available like there is today.Don’t get me wrong — I LOVE that we have this new technology because I can send quick notes to my family and friends but I sure do love making and sending handmade cards. Here’s a few samples from a recent creative time in the art room!
