Beautiful You Purse Card Set!
Created by
 Christy Fulk  

Do you like purses made from cardstock and paper, but think they’re too hard and time-consuming to make? Well, you’re going to love this purse! It’s super easy to put together, and it’s big enough to hold four cards with envelopes. This tutorial shows you how to make the purse along with four different cards. The project features the Beautiful You Stamp Set and the new 2017-2019 In Colors! This would make a great gift and a great product-based class.


SU Lovely Inside and Out Bundle

May 30, 2017

I am sure you have seen the beautiful Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper all over Pinterest…well, it is just lovely! I used it on this gate fold card with the new Lovely Inside and Out stamp set and Lovely Words Thinlits.

 The dies in the set cut out the words like you see on the inside of the card. On the front of the card, I used the largest Stitched Shapes Oval to die cut around the word. You can also snip the sides of the words and have them free standing. I adhered the hugs die cut to a piece of paper from the  Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also used some new Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon to close the card. Although Wisteria Wonder and Peekaboo Peach are not listed on the DSP colors- the watercolor palette shows variations of Calypso Coral and Night of Navy that I thought went well with the paper:)

Oh, and the cute little posie on the front is from the new Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

 The new catalog goes LIVE June 1st at noon Mountain Time. WooHoo!

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Paper and Ribbon Shares from the NEW Catalog!

May 25, 2017

The NEW Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog begins June 1st!

With it comes 15 NEW Designer Papers and lots of new ribbon styles!

Would you love to own every pack of designer paper in the new Stampin’ Up catalog BUT..

you don’t want to spend $250 or need THAT much paper?

Try my paper samplers!

My samplers are a great way to have a bit of it ALL without breaking the piggy bank!

I’m offering 6×6 DSP (Designer Series Paper) Samplers (also known as paper shares)

packaged in clear protective bags with labels that include colors that coordinate with it.

135 sheets, 6×6 in size, for only $35 & FREE tax and shipping! 

I offer free shipping on my shares as a thank you for ordering them with me.

Here is how it works:  For every 8 of you that sign up for a paper sampler (whether online, email or in person) I keep track and order one of each Designer Paper packs in the Stampin’ Up Catalog.   I then cut it up into 6×6 pieces, sort it out, place the papers in my clear bags, and  ship it to you in a waterproof, PADDED priority mail envelope.

(US addresses only per SU policy)

Round 1 begins May 25th and ends May 31st! I will order on June 1st as soon as SU turns on ordering for the new catalog.  RSVP quickly if you want in on Round 1! 

Round 2 will begin June 1st – 4th
(same exact share, just different ordering dates if you missed the first one)

*Again, email me directly at do not respond/comment to this post.

4 pieces 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ Glossy White Card Stock – It’s back!  Heavy, glossy finish on one side.

*A few things to note:

#1 The Eastern Palace Specialty paper has 2 gold foiled specialty papers that only have single sheets so you will get two 3×6 pieces of those since I have to divide each pack x 8 people.

#2 Once in a while SU creates a 12×12 design that is emotionally difficult to cut up!  This year we have the Birthday Memories and cutting this one sheet into the 6×6 pieces means someone will get just balloons and someone will get a bear with a bit of his head cut off:(

And How about some Ribbon Shares?

Stampin’ Up has lots of new ribbon!  Over 50 new rolls to be exact!  To do a share for that many rolls is quite pricey (at least $80).  Because of that, I’m offering a pared down assortment of 25 yards using one of each of the new styles!

MY personal assortment will include one color from each style of new ribbon*.   I tallied up each color represented in all the designer papers and chose an assortment of the most popular colors.  You will get 2 yards of each style of new ribbon,  26 yards for $25.  This will give you plenty of ribbon options to coordinate with your new designer papers and see each new style.

2 yards each of the following

(Please see pages 198-199 of the new catalog for photos
as I can’t show new catalog photos yet.)

Night of Navy 1/2″ Gingham Ribbon
Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon
Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon
Crumb Cake 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon
Garden Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon
Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Stitched-Edge Ribbon
Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon
Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon
Old Olive 1/4″ Sheer Ribbon
Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon
Berry Burst 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding
Gold 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon
Dapper Denim 3/8″ Striped Ribbon

*(the Copper Trim will not be available and is excluded from this share)

If you buy both the paper share and the ribbon share for $60, I will include a Free Package of lovely Iced Rhinestone Embellishments that are now retired. 

If for some reason a paper or ribbon is back ordered, I will email you immediately to let you know of the delay.  I always work fast with these paper orders so I can get them to quickly as long as they are all in stock, and I get them from SU on time.  I can place the order on June 1st, and it usually takes 2 weeks to package and mail after I receive them, so you should have them by the 3rd week of June.

Any questions, please contact me at

or call/text me at 724-323-2296.
