Brusho Class ~ last weekend

Mermaid Brusho

Falling leaves Brusho

Sheltering Tree 2

Brusho Crystal Colour (#144101, page 202 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog) Class last weekend.  We used these dry watercolor crystals for the designs above.  The crystals 'explode' when you spritz with water.  There are so many ways to use them ~ amazing!

Additional Watercolor Pencils

Stampin' Up! also has a new set of WATERCOLOR PENCILS.  They have created ASSORTMENT 2  with 10 pencils to include the new colors Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.  I scribbled the colors so that you could see both assortments ~

Happy Thursday!  Susan Elise

Tuesday Project Sheet on Wednesday

Sorry for the delay in getting your weekly PROJECT SHEET to you ~ we have been at the cottage for a couple of days.  I didn't spend any time on the computer but I did finish three PAPER PUMPKIN KITS that I took with me ~ so pleased! 

There is a very limited time left if you are interested in the Blended Seasons Stamp Set and coordinating Framelits Dies (used below for the Autumn Gift Box).  The two are bundled (wood mount #149893 or clear mount $#149894) and are only available until the 31st of this month ~ hours away!  Print off the project sheet and give me a call tomorrow if you are interested!

We Love Trees

This Bundle is on my list ~ maybe even the top of my HOLIDAY CATALOG LIST!   The video will fill you in on all of the information about the WINTER WOODS BUNDLE on page 27 in the Holiday Catty.  I think if I could only order one stamp set/dies combination this season I would order this one because there are so many possibilities ~ see what you think ~


Tags & Tidings

Chad is going to give you a review of another new product in the HOLIDAY CATALOG ~ the TAGS & TIDINGS BUNDLE.  You can find it on page 24 in the catty.  It's interesting because it creates 16 tags with only one pass through the Big Shot ~ an amazing time saver, don't you think???



Holiday Catty DSP

I have spent all day preparing for the CHRISTMAS CARD CLASS this Saturday ~ getting in the holiday mood is a little tough on a day like today ~ so beautiful!  Anyway, I have been using some of the Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog for our holiday cards.  AND, dreaming about the Designer Series Paper that I want to use in upcoming Christmas Card Classes (September, October and November) when I can order from Stampin' Up!'s HOLIDAY CATALOG.  I found a video that gives a really good idea about the colors and designs of the new DSP.  So often it is hard to tell what they really look like when you see the picture in the catalog so I hope this helps!




Falling For Leaves 2


This banner from the Share Fair uses the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper (146338) that you can find on page 189 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog (don't have one ~ just give me a call!).  It also uses the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies on page 45 in the Holiday Catalog (don't have one ~ just give ma a call!). 


This candle is decorated with the leaves cut from Copper Foil Sheets (142020) on page 192 in the Annual Catalog.  The bottom half of the candle was rolled in tiny beads.

Framed FALL

Not such a good picture but it is a white frame.  The background is again the Nature's Poem DSP and then FALL spelled out using the Large Letters Framelits (141712) on page 218 in the Annual Catalog and the leaf die.  I hope you have gotten some great home decor ideas from these pictures.  I didn't keep the name of the talented demonstrator and I feel really bad that I didn't.  I will try to find it so I can give credit where credit is due!  Thanks for stopping by!

Project Sheet Tuesday

Leaves from Blended Seasons 3-D

I wanted to continue using the idea of Fall and pretty Autumn leaves to tie in with the Falling For Leaves Bundle yesterday and tomorrow. This project sheet will give you all the directions for using the Kraft Pillow Boxes (147018) on page 193 in the Annual Catalog.  You get ten of these printed, die-cut pillow boxes for gifts & wrapped goodies for $5.00.  What a bargain!  The stamp set and dies are from the COLOR YOUR SEASON Bundle available until August 31 ~ while supplies last.  There are lots of possibilities ~ year round possibilities ~ you might want to order the pillow boxes and keep them around for special occasions or special people.

Falling For Leaves

Harvest ThanksYou can find the Falling For Leaves stamp set and Detailed Leaves thinlits dies on page 45 in your HOLIDAY CATALOG.  The samples I am sharing are from the SHARE FAIR on the cruise to ALASKA.  

Pretty placesetting

This place setting is so pretty and so easy to create with the dies that are bundled with the stamp set ~ saving 10%!

Pretty placesetting napkin

It's a little hard to see how the demonstrator used the dies and the ribbon ~ sorry about that ~ it is the fault of your photographer (and, the number of people taking pictures of these pretty samples!) ~ me.  More pictures from the SHARE FAIR on Wednesday ~ Project Sheet tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!
