How are you at Calligraphy?  Stampin' Up! can help you learn as you stamp.  Below is the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit.  It's been a very intesting new kit for me.  I enjoy calligraphy so I am naturally drawn to it.  Below is the kit and the coordinating stamp set.


Would you like to learn more about this kit?  Below is a video from Stampin' Up! to give you a better look at how to use this kit and what it can actually do for you.  

I have scheduled a class using this kit.  I will be giving you more information soon.  If you are interested, check your calendar for Saturday morning, August 25, from 10 to Noon.  I would love to have you join me!  You can get all the essentials for these projects and many more in my online store.

Abstract Impressions Video

Remeber the sample card I showed you last week using the Abstract Impressions stamp set?  Well today I want to share with you a video from Stampin' Up! that talks all about the Abstract Impressions Bundle.  Watch as Natalie gives you some great tips for using this bundle: 

You can find this bundle on page 129 of the catalog.  Remember, you get 10% when you purchase our bundles.  Plus, it's a great way to get coordinating products at a discount.  Whether you choose the stamp set or the bundle, it's a great stamp set to add to your collection.

Tutti-Frutti Video

I  love working with fruit images to create some fun cards and projects.  Stampin' Up! created this video featuring the Fruit Basket Bundle on page 29 the Occasions catalog.  This video gives you a look at all the images and even some accessories that you can purchase to coordinate with the bundle. Take a look.........

Here is a card from my recent BIRTHDAY CLASS using the Fruit Basket Bundle.  I have another Birthday Card Class coming up this month ~ are you available on Sunday afternoon, March 11?  Join us!

Do you love Paris?

This video features one of the bundles from the Occasions catalog.  If you have a love for Paris or even a cafe setting, you will love the Charming Cafe bundle.  When you use the products together, use your imagination and let it run wild.  The video will help point you in the right direction & you will love Brandi's trifold card!

 Charming ~ don't you think?  You can visit my online store for all the Occasions catalog products or just stop by the Cat/Art Studio for some stamping fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  Susan Elise

Washers, Dimensionals & Foam Strips ~ oh my!

I want to share another Bundle from the Occasions Catalog (page 45).  Here is a video featuring the Barn Door Bundle.  I am really glad that Stampin' Up! has these videos available so that I can be prepared in advance.  I have the Dimensionals and the Foam Strips but not the washers.  (I may have to check those jars of 'stuff' in the garage!) Brandi shows us how easy this card can be when you're prepared!!

January My Paper Pumpkin?

I have been having computer problems.  I haven't been receiving emails and couldn't send emails.  I spent yesterday, all afternoon, working to correct the problems.  Obviously, I didn't do it by myself ~ way to complicated!!!  Anyway, this My Paper Pumpkin kit is from January and I thought it would be a good reminder about creating and sending Valentines.  Or, about coming to my Valentine Card class tomorrow!  I would need to know this morning (at least by early afternoon) so that I can cut cardstock for you.  EMAIL ME NOW!

With a My Paper Pumpkin subscription of just three months you earn rewards toward SALE-A-BRATION!  Let me know if you have questions.  If you would like to subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin, click here or feel free to contact me for more information.  Susan Elise

Snow & Sunshine OR Sunshine & Rainbows

What a weather day!  It reminded me of a bundle in the Occasions Catalog (page 33).  This is a fun bundle and I think you will love it.  My friend, Lynne Galewski, made a wonderful card using this stamp set ~ it is below.



This is Lynn's card.  She is a member of my team, Southern Stars, and she shared this at our recent swap.  If you love to stamp and want to save money the very best way is to join Stampin' Up! ~ we save 20% with every order!  And, during SALE-A-BRATION you choose two additional FREE stamp sets (any set YOU want) ~ with your standard starter kit ($99 for$125 in products).  Let me know if you have questions!
