Sail Away Treats

Stampin' Up! Come Sail Away Suite

Stampin’ Up! Come Sail Away Suite

Hello Stampers!

For each class or event I hold, I love to surprise the attendees with a treat packet — usually filled with chocolate! This last week, I held a class featuring products from Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog. One of the brand-new suites is Come Sail Away. It’s filled with a great variety of coordinating products including the Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth Sailing Dies, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, Sail Away Trinkets, Baker’s Twine, and more.

This package starts with Stampin’ Up!’s Clear Tiny Treat Boxes. They measure 2 x 2 x 2, so they are great size for small favors. And, they are a blank canvas. You can decorate them any way you wish. And, they’re a great value. You receive 16 boxes for $7.50. They make great favors for weddings, baby showers and birthday parties.

I used the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to decorate the outside panels of the box. They are square, and are cut at just under 2 inches each. (These pieces were actually scraps from another project, and I was able to find a great use for them!). I decorated the front of the box with the anchor from the Smooth Sailing Dies cut from Silver Foil Sheets. I added a bit of the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine on the front. Inside the box, I added shreddie and a fun chocolate treat. I wrapped it all up with the Linen Ribbon from the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack.

Thanks for stopping by today. You can see a list of all of the products I used for this project today down below. Click on any of the graphics to be taken directly to my online store.

Please let me know if you have any questions of how this project went together.

June Challenge: #simplestamping

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia #simplestamping

Stampin’ Up! Good Morning Magnolia #simplestamping

Hello Stampers!

A new Stampin’ Up! catalog is so exciting! It’s always hard to know what to order first. The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and coordinating Magnolia Memory Dies and Magnolia Lane Designer Series paper were the first on my list.

I love large images that become the focus of the card. It makes it easy to create a quick, but still beautiful card, without a lot of fuss and thought.

Stampin’ Up! is challenging us to get back to the basics of stamping: rubber stamps, ink, and paper. This card qualifies for that, and the two-time stamping technique just adds a bit of dimension.

Here’s how this card came together:

Petal Pink Card Stock: Base–8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half. 4 1/4 x 3

Very Vanilla: 5 1/4 x 4 and 4 x 2 3/4

Apply a tiny bit of SNAIL onto the back of the small vanilla piece. Place on top of the large vanilla piece, trying your best to center. Ink the Magnolia stamp with Soft Suede ink. Stamp the image on the top of both pieces of Very Vanilla while they are stuck together. For this card, I tried to stamp the image farther to the left to leave room for the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment with Soft Suede. While the pieces are still together, apply Petal Pink ink (with a sponge) to the flowers and Soft Sea Foam to the leaves. Gently remove  the top Very Vanilla piece. Adhere it to the 4 1/4 x 3 Petal Pink paper. Carefully match up the images and adhere to the Very Vanilla and finally, the base.

Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog

Stampin’ Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog

Hello Stampers!

There’s so much to love about Stampin’ Up!’s new Annual Catalog! The catalog is now live, and you can order to your heart’s content.

View the PDF of the catalog here.

If you’d like a physical copy of the catalog (who wouldn’t?) and currently don’t have a demonstrator, please contact me and I’ll get one to you.

One of the great features of a new catalog is the awesome selection of Designer Series Paper. Want it all, but the budget says no? I’m offering three different options for a paper share, allowing you to get samples of some or all of the paper offered in the new catalog.

See the details in this post.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if I can help you shop for your favorites!
