Weekly Deals and Paper Pumpkin Deal until March 31st

March 29, 2016

(Jim did remember- he woke me up to a Barry White serenade…)

Hey there, crafters-

Here are your Weekly Deals good Tuesday March 29 through April 4

Don’t forget that Paper Pumpkin is on sale during SALE-A-BRATION! You get a $5 discount on a 3 month subscription –

THREE kits for just $55 and a Free Sale-a-bration goodie!

AND…In April, as a THANK YOU to its subscribers, Stampin’ Up is

giving away a FREE stamp set

in addition to the one already in the kit!!!!


If there is a time to test drive this baby, now is the time-


A 3 months subscription, FREE stamp set in April, and a Free SAB item- all for a discounted $55!

As always, during your subscription, you can opt out any month by the 10th of that month . For example, if you have a 3 mos. subscription and want to have it three months in a row- just let it ride. However, if you want it in April, not in May, and then again in June- you can do that. All you need to do is opt out of May by May 10th. You do this until your subscription is filled.

Imagine using this in your gift giving- you subscribe, you get the box, and you have three gifts that are completely ready to give as a gift (for under $20- actually $18.33). What a fun and creative way to give a gift- everything they need is in the box- the ink, the stamps, and the paper and accessories! Hey, I think I am going to subscribe again!!!

If you have any questions, please contact me by Thursday, March 31st.  or 724-323-2296


You will see Paper Pumpkin listed on the left side of the store under the search box. Check it out!

SU Balloon Bouquet Punch with SAB Party Pants Stamp

March 28, 2016

(OMGosh- it’s my 29th anniversary- I almost forgot until I posted this- I wonder if Jim will remember?)

Hey kids, we are winding up SALE-A-BRATION 2016 this week on Thursday, March 31st  so…
“PUT YOUR PARTY PANTS ON” if there is anything else you are looking at and want a cute Sale-a-bration item to boot with a $50 order!

SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Pink

You will see a lot of cards using this “collar card” technique if you google it.
My friend, Linda Heller, inspired me with this design using the Balloon Bouquet punch
along with the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.
It is a 48 sheet paper stack with 4 sheets each of 12 designs of  12″ x 12″ designer series paper in great colors- both bright and neutral.

I used the fun Party Pants Sale-a-bration stamp, too!

SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Pink inside

You can see how I carried over the designer series paper and the balloon theme
to the inside of the card:)

Here is another card using a different pattern in the
It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack:

SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Black


SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Black inside

For this card, I simply took a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of designer paper and placed the 5 1/4″ side up against the top of my Stampin’ Trimmer. I then slid the left edge of the paper to the 2 5/8″ mark on the top ruler of the trimmer. I then used the cutting blade to cut down from the top to the 1 1/2″ mark on the clear sliding ruler that the blade is guided through. After you make the cut, you just fold back the two collars exposing the opposite side of the designer paper. To make the folding a bit easier, you can use a ruler to line up the each corner with the middle cut to get a clean fold down each side.

Stayed over in NC on my return trip only to dream all night that I forgot to post the metallic washi tape!

SU Flowering Fields with Wildflower Fields DSP

February 6, 2016

Here are two different versions of a card we made at class this week using

two Sale-a-bration 2016 freebies- the stamp set SU Flowering Fields

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 9.27.16 AM

and the coordinating Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.

It is hard to see but Wink of Stella glitter adorns the flowers for a little extra…oh!

SU Field Flowers SAB BB


SU Field Flowers SAB LL

You can punch out the Modern Label border (retired) that is around the sentiment in the inside from the panel on the front before adhering the DSP since it will be covered by the DSP.  I like to do this so I don’t ruin my card at the end if I flub up the inside stamping. The sentiment and butterflies come from the SU Project Life You’re So Lovely stamp set. At class, we had a variety of sentiments to use in the banner thanks to the SU Tin of Cards stamp set and the new SU Number of Years stamp set. We even threw in a few others from the new SU  Helping Me Grow set, too!

I was inspired by a card designed by Linda Heller at our Demonstrator Get together.
