Craft Project Central December BONUS Project

December 28, 2017

The month is almost over…and here is the Craft Project Central 

December Bonus Project!*

Eastern Beauty Purse & Card Set 

This tutorial includes a purse that holds six cards and envelopes. The cards can be given to men and women alike. When the cards are gone, the purse can be used as a special gift bag. There are three card designs, each using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies in different ways. It doesn’t look like it, but only one ink pad was used to make everything! Make two of each card, and your purse is full. This would make a great product-based card class, too.

*Bonus projects can be obtained by subscribing to any of the three, six or 12 month subscription packages, that include the month for which you would like the bonus. 

It’s not too late to play along with the Creating Pretty Cards Challenge #78!

SU Bird Banter Fun Fold for Creating Pretty Cards # 78

December 28, 2017

I finally got my submission done for the Creating Pretty Card #78.

Thanks to some inspiration from my friend!

Here is the sketch Monika gave us to inspire our creativity:

I used a new stamp set called Bird Banter from the Occasions Catalog

going LIVE on January 3, 2018- Woot Woot!

My “Happy Birthday” comes from a new stamp set  coming out called Birthday Wit.

The “belated” insert is from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set in the Annual Catalog.


It’s a fun fold card inspired by my friend, Janet Munden, who used a

NEW Sale-a-Bration 2018 stamp set called Party Pandas- over the top adorable!

I changed it up with the Birds!

The Real Red cardstock is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side.

The Basic Black folded section is 3-1/4″ x 10″ scored at 2- 3/4″ and 5-1/2″.

The Whisper White panels are 2-1/2″ x 3 (x2) and 3″ x 4-1/4″.

The DSP is from the FREE Sale-a Bration treat called Bubbles and Fizz- So bright and cheery:)

You can choose this Designer Series Paper with a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration 2018!

I used Stampin’ Blends to color my birds- LOVE the no streak alcohol markers!!!

My new Stamparatus helped me to get my balloon, branch, and birds in perfect alignment.


*Don’t forget to get any of the retiring items you have had your eye on

from the Holiday Catalog this week!

Reservations for the Stamparatus close on December 30, too!

The reservation window is open without any inventory limits until DECEMBER 30  for a late March delivery-

then the tool reservation and ordering will done until the new Annual Catalog comes out in June.

SU is requiring a credit card to reserve but it will not be charged until it ships.

The cost of the tool will be $49 (US)

(note: To reserve one for yourself, you will need to create a Stampin’ Up account with a login if you haven’t created one before. There will be a page to choose your demonstrator. If you want me as your demo, look for Cindy Brumbaugh in Windermere, FL 34786.

Click HERE to see a PDF of what the screens will look like when you reserve your spot.

 Beginning March 19 – March 31st,  SU will ship your Stamparatus in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in their warehouse.

 One reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
