Envelope Bag--SA Recycled Challenge #2

Stampin' Up! has a fantastic new product coming out on September 1st, an Envelope Punch Board.  You can make 66 different sized envelopes from a piece of paper.  The measurements are right on the Punch Board for all the envelope sizes.  So easy to use and the tools are all part of the system, no changing things in and out to finish your custom envelope.

It is fantastic for making envelopes, but you can make other things with it as well.  I made a custom 5" by 7" envelope and turned that into packaging for some cards.  You can see a wonderful video for this on Stampin' Addicts.  First I closed all the seams of my custom envelope with sticky strip.  Then, I scored three sides of the envelope 1/2".  The forth side I cut off just enough for it to open.  When you fold it open you get this cute little 4-1/2" x 6" x 1" box.  Fits standard cards and envelopes perfectly.    I then stamped all over the front with my Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and Off the Grid Stamp in Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Illuminate Glimmer Ink (shows better in person).    A quick torn belly band and a simple Thanks! label with the Window Frames Collection Framelits.
You can see more Envelope Bags on Pinterest.  Go to the Recycled Challenge #2 board on the Stampin' Addicts Page.

You have heard me mention my friends at Stampin' Addicts many times.  I just love this group of ladies.  We have started our own page on Pinterest so you can easily find projects by these wonderful stampers.  There are boards for our most recent Blog Hop and a few challenges we sponsor.  More boards for past Blog Hops will be added, so you can see all the talented projects in one place.

Simply type Stampin' Addicts into the pinterest search engine and look for our logo.

The challenge was to use the sketch to create your own card.  I used the Festive Flurry Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog.  I stamped the 3 smaller images in Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Silver Encore Ink.  Check out that envelope too.  I used a sheet of the Winter Frost Paper Stack and cut it out with the Envelope Liners Die.

Stampin' Addicts Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to stop #7 on this hop.  If you have been following the Hop you just came from Rhonda's Blog.  Isn't she great!  She is a great stamper and I am so blessed to call her my friend too.  If you started here, you can stay here and follow the Hop until it loops its way back around.  If you want to start at the beginning please go to Heidi's Blog.

If you have never seen a Blog Hop before you are in for a treat.  11 Demonstrators from Stampin' Addicts have brought you projects featuring the Fall Products from the 2013 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I have 4 projects featuring the Halloween Bash Stamp Set, so lets get started.

What is the first thing we do when having a BASH?  We send out invitations.  I colored the image with my Stampin' Write Markers in Basic Gray, Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie.  The torn edges were colored with the NEW Smokey Slate Marker.  It is hard to see in the photo, but the black background area has a fuzzy texture to it.  Come back next week for tips on how to do that.  The little creepy crawly fellow is from my Halloween decorations.  A cheap embellishment this time of year.  And how about that envelope?  The NEW Envelope Liners Framelit Dies can make any envelope just jump out at you.

We want everyone to find their place at the party.  Here is a fun decor project.  I made the rosette using the Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper.  I lined up the paper in my Paper Cutter, so they spiders on the print were near the outer edge.  I then used my scoring tool to score the fold lines.  There is no perfect measurement to score this at.  I moved the DSP around so the groove of the tool was in the center of the spider or his web area.  I stamped the label in versamark ink, then used heat and stick powder to adhere the orange glitter.  The name is hand written with the NEW Chalk Marker.

Once everyone has found their seat you want to have a little treat for them.  The treat topper features the Label Framelits turned both directions.  Again, I colored the stamp with my Stampin' Write Markers.  Add a little something with a glitter covered background.  (More details on that next week).  For those looking for the worms, I found them in the Hawaiian treat section of my store.  They are Li Hing covered Sour Worms.  "Eat If You DARE!"

To round out our table setting, we have a simple little package for holding the silverware.  A little distress marks from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  Be sure to check back next week for more photos and details on how to make these projects yourself.  But now, it is on to the next stop at Mary's Blog where she is going to show you some fabulous uses for the Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape.

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek--Santa's List

August 1st marks the official start of the SU! Holiday Catalog.  Here is a sneak peek at one of the stamp sets you will find in this fantastic publication.  It is called "Santa's List" and can be found on page 31 of the 2013 Holiday Catalog.  It is a 3 piece set with the main image of Santa checking his list and two saying stamps.

Two other new products to point out.  Do you like those diagonal embossed lines in the background?  They are from the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  How about that little ribbon on a clip? That is the Old Olive Simply Styled Embellishment.  They come in a pack of 12 clips.  TIP:  I cut a small slit near the corner of the whisper white and put my bow clip in the slot.  It helped it to lay flat on the card.

New Catalog Card Swap--Perfect Blend

There are all different types of swaps demonstrators can participate in at convention.  I joined a group of 34 ladies interested in swapping cards with stamp sets new to the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog.  Here is mine.  When I first say the "Perfect Blend" stamp set it immediately went on my first order wish list.  Something about it just called out to me.

I knew I wanted to use watercolor paper for the main image area.  I stamped the image in stazon black and then using my aqua painters, colored it in with Summer Starfruit and Crumb Cake.  The lipstick blotch is Raspberry Ripple to match the DSP print.

I encourage everyone to really look at all the prints in a DSP collection.  This print is on the back of one print in Birthday Basics.  I wasn't sure what to do with the large area in the background, so I made my own print.  I used a tone on tone effect and randomly stamped to cup a few times.  The label on the cup was stamped and cut out from Gumball Green.

Stamps: Perfect Blend WM #130745, CM #131392
Cardstock:  Early Espresso #119686, Watercolor Paper #122959, Gumball Green #126840, Crumb Cake #120953

3D Swap for Convention

I found myself all packed, ready to go to convention with 8 hours to spare this year.  All my card swaps were done and I was just waiting out the time till I could go to the airport.  What is a stamper to do?  Make more swaps.  I sat at my work table, got out my Big Shot and went through my dies.  The Petite Purse Die has been sitting there patiently until I was ready to use it.  So Glad I Did!!

These were a hit at convention.  I thought it was so simple.  Maybe that is what appealed to everyone.  My only problem.....I forgot to put my name on them.  As you can see again, I am in love with this years In Colors.  The Stretch Ruffle Trim is fabulous also.  You can stretch it out for a less ruffled look if you like.  I used it in its unstretched full ruffle form.

The flower on front was made with three punched out 1-1/4" Scallop Circles.  I used the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  I crunched them up by hand and held it to the purse with a brad.

The Ruffle Trip was put on in two strips that shared the handle space with some sticky strip.  These are fast to make and perfect for just about any occasion.  I'm thinking wedding favors, baby shower or little girl birthday.  They hold a few pieces of small candy.  I put Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts in mine.

Happy Birthday CASE!

CASE--Copy And Share Everything.  This is a great way to make cards.  I had received a wonderful card, while swapping at convention, from Cathy Seal.  I loved her color use and design.  I do have this fascination with this years In Colors.  I changed my card to use more of the colors.  I also added some spritzer to the flowers.  You can see my card on the left and Cathy's on the right.  Both stamped sentiments are from the same stamp set.

A close up of the flower details.  

The best part of making cards is giving them away.  I made this one for my friend Rie's birthday.  Here she is celebrating at the Cheesecake Factory in Waikiki, HI.

Of course we had to have cheesecake.  I had the carrot cake cheesecake.  Yummmmmm!!

Convention Swap #2

I LOVE SWAPPING!  I participated in a few organized swaps this year.  This is my card for the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Card Swap.

I did a little twist with the focal image.  You could stamp the image on Whisper White and then punch it out with the Scallop Circle Punch.  Instead I punched through the Crisp Cantaloupe Cardstock and put the image behind the space.  All of the colors were chosen to go with the designer paper from the Birthday Basics DSP.

Stamps: Sketched Birthday (WM #130423, CM #130426)

Colors Cardstock and Markers: Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Black Stazon Ink Pad

25th Anniversary of Stampin' Up!

I have enjoyed my 7-1/2 years as a demonstrator for Stampin' Up!  I have been blessed to attend several major events, but nothing compares to the 25th Anniversary Convention in Salt Lake City.  My friend Paula snapped this photo of me near the main stage.

Demonstrators love Stampin' Up! events for all the tips and training we get for our business.  Still, the freebies are kind of nice.  This year they went all out.  Here is a photo of all the stamp sets and kits I received at convention.  Be on the lookout for more information about that little brown bag marked "Undefined" in the lower left corner.

Of course we needed something to carry it all in, so they gave each of us a backpack.  It is white with silver printing in the modern mosaic pattern.  Sorry for the photo quality, I took it with my phone just after we got our bags.

Have you been thinking about becoming a demonstrator?  There is never a bad time to sign up with Stampin' Up!  All new demonstrators can sign up for only $99 and you get to select $125 worth of Stampin' Up! products of your choice.  You will also receive a business pack worth over $65 of catalogs, forms and everything needed to get started right away.

From now thru August 31st Stampin' Up! is having a special for those who sign up.  You can select a project kit from the list below.
You can sign up and become part of my Stampin' Up! team online 24/7 on My Demonstrator Website.

Convention Swap #1

I got back a couple days ago from Stampin' Up! Convention 2013 in Salt Lake City.  I have finally gotten a few hours of solid sleep and can think more clearly.  I have so many ideas it has been hard to decide where to begin.  I have updated my class schedule and uploaded all my photos to my computer.  I took over 700.

"Be the Difference" was the theme of this years convention.  It has encouraged me to think out of my comfort zone in my business and community.  Over the next week or so I will share more of the photos I took at convention.  For now, how about a card.

This is one of the 5 cards I made to swap with other demonstrators at convention.  This was my largest group as I made 216 of this card.  That is 432 flowers stamped and punched, 432 dimensionals, 216 stamped sentiments, 216 cuts of ribbon, 216...of my gosh it was tiring the first time to remind myself again.  I made this card for swapping with my StampersExpress Family, the shoebox swap with my Stampin' Addicts friends, and for general floor swaps with anyone with a card to trade.

It is a fantastic card and the saying can have so many meaning and uses.  It is from the "Feel Goods" stamp set in the Annual Catalog.  You can easily change the card for any color collection.  Just use the coordinating buttons, pack of DSP, and ink.  The coolest thing about this card is the ease of making them in bulk.  There are 72 buttons in a pack of Designer Buttons (available in all 4 color collections--I used Bold Bright).  The beautiful chevron ribbon (I used Marina Mist) cuts into exactly 72 five inch pieces.  You can get 48 cuts from one sheet of Designer Series Paper (Polka Dot Parade DSP) and 28 cuts from one sheet of cardstock (Real Red embossed piece).

Stamps:  Feel Goods (WM #131916, CM #129684), Flower Shop (WM #130939, CM #130942)
Ink: Real Red #126949, Dafodil Delight #126944, Stazon Black #101406
Cardstock:  Whisper White #100730, Daffodil Delight #119683, Real Red #102482
Accessories:  Pansy Punch #130698 (available as a bundle with the coordinating stamp set on pg 95), Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper #126902, Bold Bright Buttons #130028, Rhinstone Basic Jewels #119246, Dimensionals #104430, Marina Mist 3/4" Chevron Ribbon #130016, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder #127751, Big Shot #113439
