Designer Series Paper Stacks

There are four new paper stacks in the 2017- 2018 Catalog ~ Petal Garden, Color Theory, Wood Textures and Fresh Florals.   They are all 6' x 6' stacks except the Fresh Florals which is 12" x 12".  And they are all $10 (for 48 sheets of paper) except the Fresh Florals which is $22 for 40 sheets of 12" x 12" paper.  You can see the pictures of the paper stacks on page 187 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog or view this video that Stampin' Up! produced for all of us.  I know none of us need more paper (right?) so I think that a good way to have some variety with these new papers is a SHARE.  If you are in a STAMP CLUB the stacks can be divided pretty easily or I can have a SIGN UP SHEET for an inexpensive SHARE, let me know what you think!  EMAIL ME NOW!

Marie's card & Embossing Paste Video

Marie's pig card

This is Marie Shaughnessy's card from our meeting on Saturday afternoon.  Isn't it darling?  She used a new product in the Stampin' Up! catalog, Embossing Paste, to create the texture in the clouds.  She also demonstrated the product showing all of us how to use it.  You can find the Paste on page 201 along with a set of Masks and a set of Palette Knives that you use with the paste.  Thanks Marie ~ super demonstration!

 Take a look at the 'how to' video Stampin' Up! created.  

If you want to take a look at the new annual catalog, click the catalog link here.  You can also  contact me to get one of your own. 

Thanks, Susan Elise

My SOFT SAYINGS CARD KIT CLASS is going to be so much fun!  I LOVE the kit and the 20 cards I made one morning this past week.  You can see the kit in the video below or on page 10 and 11 in Stampin' Up!'s new catalog.  Sign up for my class now so that I have time to order your kit for you.  The class is scheduled for Tuesday, June 27, at 6:30 in the Cat/Art Studio.  Because the kit contains EVERYTHING that you need to make 20 cards we will be making an additional four cards together in the class ~ you'll want to use the stamp set over and over ~ let me show you how!  The kit is also refillable making it a good investment (and so much less expensive than even the dollar store!) ~ join me for some fun!

So Detailed Thinlits Dies

SO IN LOVE BUNDLE is so pretty and it is retiring soon.  You can find it on page 52 in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog.  It makes a lovely card ~

Pink swap card

Marble Technique Video

This is not a new technique, but it has such different results each time.  It's a great idea to revisit the idea.  This video was created by Stampin' Up! and it also uses current colors.  What's the look you want, shades of one color family or a rainbow?  Take a look: 

You can use all one color family for a great monochromatic look.  I'm always happy to answer any questions about our products or techniques. 



It's a Sara Thing with My Paper Pumpkin

This video features Sara Douglas (Shelli's daughter), Stampin' Up!'s CEO, who designed the APRIL PAPER PUMPKIN box for all of us to enjoy.
