Easy Note Pad

Hello Stampers!
 
When I find a 3D item or treat packet I really like, I kind of go crazy making them. That’s how it is with today’s project, a mini sticky note pad holder. They are so cute and easy to make and decorate.
 
I started making the pads featuring the All My Love Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s new Occasions Catalog. I just love the Lovely Lipstick Foil that created the heart on the front. The other design is also created with Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog, How Sweet It Is. The colors in the paper lend themselves well to festive treat packets. You can get 12 treats from just one sheet of 12 x 12 paper.
 
The Designer Series Paper is cut at 2 inches x 6 inches. Score at: ¾, 2, 2 ¼, 3 ¾, 4 and 5 inches.
 
Fold each end over and adhere. Place a sticky note pad in the center. I put some extra adhesive to make sure the pad isn’t going anywhere. I found some Velcro circles at my local Walmart store. Then I decorated to my heart’s desire!
 
Remember: Sale-A-Bration is ongoing. For every $50 and $100 in purchases before tax and shipping, receive your choice of an item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Choices include exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, Foil Paper and more. New items will be released February 15.
 
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have any questions about today’ s project.

Lovely Lipstick Foil

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve had fun playing with new products. One of my favorites is the Lovely Lipstick Foil sheets available free with a $50 purchase during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion. You receive four, 12 x 12 sheets of Lovely Lipstick and four of the Grapefruit Grove. You must absolutely see these gorgeous papers in person.
 
Here, I used the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies to crop a heart from the Lovely Lipstick and then I ran that heart through the Big Shot in the Lace Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. It offers such an elegant look.
 
The biggest tip here is that I cut the heart from the layering piece. See the piece of foil beneath the Crumb Cake? I cut the heart from that piece and layered the Crumb Cake on top. I get more bang for my paper and you don’t even know it (unless, of course, you take the card apart!)
 
Other fun elements here are the doily, the All My Love Designer Series Paper and the Lovely Lipstick ribbon from the All My Love combo package.

Meant to Be Anniversary

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
When you first take a glance through Stampin’ Up!’s new Occasions Catalog, you may think the Meant to Be Bundle on page 6 is for Valentine’s Day only. I’m here to tell you (and show you), it’s not.
 
I created this beautiful anniversary card using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits, Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil, and gold heat embossing. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.
 
Here are the measurements of the layers:
 

  • Top white layer: 4 ½ x 3 ¼
  • Black layer: 4 ¾ x 3 ½
  • Gold Foil layer: 5 ¼ x 4
  • Bottom Whisper White base: 4 ½ x 11 (folded in half)

 
To make it easy to apply the die cut hearts – which are absolutely beautiful – I adhered a piece of the multi-purpose adhesive sheet to the back of the small white layer before running it through the Big Shot. I used the hearts that popped out to embellish the rest of the card. It is sooo pretty!
 
Thanks for stopping by today! To see a list of the products I used to create this card, view the graphics below. Click on any of them to be taken directly to my online store. When you purchase this bundle for $54, you are eligible to receive one free level 1 Sale-A-Bration reward. Choose from exclusive stamp sets, Designer Series Paper, butterfly embellishments, and more.

Easy Peasy Valentine

Picture

Hello Stampers!
 
As paper crafters, we often think for a card to be beautiful, it must have more layers, more colors, more ribbon, or more embellishment.
 
But, there is joy in simplicity. Card making doesn’t haven’t to be complicated or difficult. Sometimes, all you need is rubber stamps, ink, and paper.
 
I’ve accomplished that here with this card: Stampin’ Up!’s Meant to Be and Forever Lovely stamp sets, Lovely Lipstick ink pad, and Whisper White note cards (you get 20 pre-cut and scored cards and envelopes for just $6.50).
 
I began by inking the heart with the Lovely Lipstick and stamping it in the middle of the note card. Without reinking, I stamped the heart again, overlapping a bit with the first stamped image. I then repeated this across the page. I added the sentiment, and I’m done.
 
Voila! Easy-peasy!
 
I hope you’re inspired to give this a try. Click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store to purchase the products I used for this card.
 
Thanks for stopping by today!

Join the fun!

Hello Stampers!
 
There are a lot of reasons I recommend getting Stampin’ Up!’s starter kit, also known as the ultimate bundle. During Sale-A-Bration, not only do you get to choose $175 worth of ANY products (shipped to you free of charge) for $99, you receive a minimum 20 percent discount on your future purchases—at least through July 31. If you have a long wish list, this is a great option for you.
 
The discounts and resources are awesome, but another benefit is belonging to a team of other stampers who share your love of paper crafting! Pictured above are the women from my team (Kim’s Paper Krafters) who attended Stampin’ Up!’s 30th anniversary celebration held in Orlando in November. We saw stamping presentations, played with new products, swapped with other stampers, learned some business basics, and jut had fun being together—with more than 5,000 other demonstrators from throughout the world.
 
These ladies came from Knoxville, Tennessee; Tucson, Arizona; Aurora, Colorado; Pawnee City, Nebraska; and Lincoln, Nebraska, to be a part of this exciting experience. I’d love to share this opportunity with you!
 
The special I mentioned above is good through March 31. And, there’s another really cool option. For $129, choose $175 worth of product AND receive Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Craft and Carry Tote Bag. (See the picture below.) I know I’m love bags, and this was specially designed for crafting. The only way to get the tote is to buy Stampin’ Up!’s starter kit ($129).
 
When you purchase the Stampin’ Up! starter kit, there’s no risk nor obligation. You’re not required to host parties or workshops. Just enjoy your discount! You can sign up here or contact me if you’d like to chat.
 
I’ve been a demonstrator for more than eight years. I joined because there was a special on the starter kit, and I loved the idea of a discount. Now, eight years later, it’s been so much more. I’ve been able to share my love of paper crafting with others. I’ve been able to send gratitude and spread cheer through my handmade cards. And, I’ve been introduced to a whole group of awesome people I would never have met. Won’t you join me?
