Stampin’ UP! Hats Off Bundle with Hey Sports Fan DSP

March 30, 2022

I paired up the Hey Sports Fan Designer Series Paper (in the Jan-June Mini Catalog) with the retiring Hats Off Bundle in the Annual Catalog. They work great together!!! Take a look…

Looks fun…but open it up!

Some easy scoring and you have a great fun fold to show off your Designer Series Papers!

Think of all the pretty DSP you can put on this kind of fun fold!

Below is one of the end strips on the 4-1/4′ x 5-1/2″ back of the card that the folded mechanism attaches to and is visible when the card is closed.

Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, Folded mechanism: 4″ x 11″ scored at 2″, 3-3/4″, 7-1/4″ and 9″, DSP on ends of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card base: 3/4″ x 4″, DSP on folded mechanism: Outer sections- 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″, Sections beside White middle section: 1-1/2″ x 3-3/4″, White middle section: 3-1/4″ x 3-3/4″

The “Happy Birthday” sentiment comes from the Stampin’ UP! Celebrate You stamp set:)

Stampin’ UP! Artistically Inked Bundle with Expressions in Ink DSP

March 28, 2022

The Stampin’ UP! Artistically Inked Bundle is staying but it will separated in the new Annual Catalog. However, the gorgeous Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper is retiring. One of my favorite people needed a wedding card so I made this one for her.

The gold accents in the DSP are just fabulous but are so hard to capture in a photograph!

I used the Stampin’ UP! Celebrating You stamp set for the inside sentiment. The Celebrating You is a winner of a stamp set- so many all occasion sentiments make it so versatile!

The Expressions in Ink DSP is 3″ x 4″ bordered by 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Basic White card stock.

My Top 15 Bundles in the Retiring Annual 2021-22 Stampin’ UP! Catalog

March 25, 2022

The Annual Catalog Retiring List is out…how about a stroll down Memory Lane of my Top 15 Stamp Bundles (that have stamps and dies/punches) that are completely leaving us.

Remember ALL Bundles are retiring but some are coming back as an individual stamp and an individual die set in the new catalog- so the 10% bundled discount is gone.

The Bundles I am showcasing below will NOT be in the NEW 2022-2023 Annual Catalog in any way- stamps or dies. These are just some of them I adored!

Some are bundled now and not bundled right now but do have dies/punches that coordinate, and we all love that!!! And some are on the 20% list with the Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!

For more info, you can place the name of the stamp in the search bar on my blog. It is at the top of the page on the right in the yellow strip or on the right side bar under my photo smiling at YOU- go under the BEE!

Thanks for taking a stroll with me today…

wish we were together grabbing a cup of tea or coffee at a little shop today!

Well, guess what? I am going to talk a stroll with my daughter today as we take care of my little 15 month old grandie daughter who became a big sister a day ago!!! My new grandie daughter, son, and his wife are doing well and coming home tomorrow. She was a 35 week preemie but not as little and needing as much care as her big sister needed with a month in the hospital…so PRAISE THE LORD for his wonderful protection over her and her mommy- so very thankful!

And…she does not have a name yet:)
