August Updates

Hello Stampers!

When I flipped the calendar to August, it reminded me (unfortunately) the end of summer is nearing, schools are starting, and all the fun traditions of fall are coming soon. I don’t want to wish summer away too soon though, so I hope you enjoy the sunshine and some fun, creative, relaxation time this month!

Holiday Catalog

Stampin’ Up!’s Holiday Catalog goes live September 4. It is packed full with new stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, ribbon, punches, framelits, and more for Halloween, fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, winter, and even Valentine’s Day. I’m in the process of distributing these, so let me know if you want one.

Kim’s News

This week, my husband and I embark on an exciting journey. We’re moving from Lincoln, Nebraska, where we’ve lived for the past fifteen years, to Mesa, Arizona, where my husband will work for State Farm. While it will be very sad to leave, I’m looking forward to new adventures. I will return to Lincoln for a few days in September, so look for my class schedule and get your stamping fix.

Once I get settled in Arizona, I’ll be trying out Facebook Lives and YouTube videos to share Stampin’ Up! products and projects. Stay tuned!

I truly appreciate your continued support of my business as I work toward a major Stampin’ Up! goal! As I transition, you may place orders directly on my web site at or you may call or email. Any order helps get me closer to the goal! Thank you!

Happy stamping!

Celebrating with Time for Tags

Stampin' Up! Time for Tags

Stampin’ Up! Time for Tags

Hello Stampers!

There’s a really versatile host set in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog called Time for Tags. It has a variety of sentiments and pairs with the Timeless Label Punch. For this card, I also used the brand-new Delightful Tag Topper Punch and the In Color (Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Blueberry Bushel) 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stacks. I colored the images using Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Write Markers.

It’s a fun, colorful card that can be shared with anyone, but especially those who love hot air balloons.

You can earn this stamp set and pay just $12.50 when you host a qualifying party (or order) of $150. Ask me how!

Thanks for stopping by today. A list of all the products I used to create this card is below. Click on any of the graphics to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Pretty Pressed Petals

Stampin' Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape

Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape

Hello Stampers!

Tucked on page 172 of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog is a really cool product — Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape. It’s a two-roll package, but the one roll is so different than any other washi tape I’ve used before. It peels off in petals so you can create your own flowers! How fun is that?

I started with a white 1/2-inch circle and peeled the petals off the roll one by one. I affixed the centers onto the circle until I had created a flower. You can use the embossing buddy on the back of the flower to prevent the flower from totally sticking to your paper. One roll contains about 100 petals allowing you to create anywhere from 16 to 20 flowers per roll, depending on how many petals you use.

This card was inspired by a journal decorated by Ellen Woodbridge. I easily turned it into a card using other fun Stampin’ Up! products including a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, Pearlized Doilies, the Leaf Punch, Classic Label Punch, Subtle Embossing Folder, and Faceted Gems.

Thanks for stopping by today. You can see a list of all of the products I used below. Click on any of the links to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Gable Box Gifts

Stampin' Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You

Stampin’ Up! Mini Gable Boxes, Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper, Timeless Label Punch, Beautiful You

Hello Stampers!

Each time I hold a class or event, I love to treat the attendees with some kind of treat packaging — with chocolate inside, of course! Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Gable Boxes are fun to decorate with Designer Series Papers, ribbons, and sentiments. They are perfect for baby shower and bridal shower treats and would even work well for wedding favors. These boxes are retiring from Stampin’ Up! catalog and won’t be available after June 3. You receive 12 boxes for $8.

I decorated the boxes with the 12 x 12 Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (this paper is retiring). I used four pieces: 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 inches and 2 cut at 1 3/4 x 4 inches. The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Day stamp set and is punched out the new Timeless Label Punch.

Be sure to check out the retiring products. Stock up and get your favorites before they’re gone (or have to pay inflated prices on eBay!)
