Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Gift Ensemble Video Tutorial

February 5, 2019

I have a treat for you today that you can treat someone with for Valentine’s Day, a Birthday, or a Just Because…

And here is a video to show you how to make the trio of projects!

Please note: Use a strong adhesive when adhering the sides of the bag together and with the trim around the top that goes over the handles.
I found my Snail did not adhere it strong enough after my video was done!!

The gift is a pizza box filled with a treat:

I filled this one with an EOS hand lotion.

 I made a bag in a box to hold the pizza box with the gift.

A matching card slips into the bag easily.

Actually, the bag in a box is perfect for gifting a set of cards.
You can tuck at least 3 cards with envelopes, maybe even five, in a landscape position perfectly.

Thanks for buzzing by…

Stampin’ Up Fable Friends

February 4, 2019

I am loving the SU Fable Friends stamp set. Isn’t it just adorable?

I used to steer away from images that needed coloring but not anymore since I have my Stampin’ Blends in so many different colors!
I just love how easy they are to color without streaks. You can also lighten areas with the Color Lifter or darken areas by coloring over the image again.

When you cut a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP, you have little strips left that are perfect for an inside that compliments the outside of your card:)
So don’t pitch those scraps! I have a feeling if you are like me…you don’t!

Stampin’ Up Dear Doily Bundle

February 1, 2019

Here’s a bright one for you today! I used three of our 2018-2020 In Colors-
Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, and Call Me Clover.

I was inspired by a catalog sample and totally changed it up. You can really see how bright these colors are when they are all combined. The photopolymer stamped images stamp so crisp and clean and look so great with the die cut doilies.

When I design a card, I like to carry all the colors from the outside into the inside of the card.For example, since the card stock is green, I stamped yellow and blue so the eye sees all the colors again on the inside. Sometimes I neglect my inside, how about you? Do you always decorate the inside or forget?

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
