Lovely Lattice Video

If you have not had the chance to see the Lovely Lattice stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog, you may want to take a look.  The flower image is great for so many occasions.  My favorite is embossing the image on vellum and coloring the underside with our Stampin' Blends.  This was one of our projects for our stamp club meetings this month.

February Paper Pumpkin Kit

The February PAPER PUMPKIN kit is anticipating Spring and an end to all this rain that we have been having!  At least it isn't snow, right?  Tell me what you think when you take a look at the video below and see how they all the cards come together. 

Don't you just love it?  You can sign up for Paper Pumpkin for March HERE and because it's Paper Pumpkin's sixth birthday next month, they are putting a FREE stamp set in every March box.  That's right, you heard correctly.  Find out more information about signing up during Sale-A-Bration on my post HERE.

Sue Blaski's Stampin' Party

My friend, Sue, is taking advantage of a special offer during SALE-A-BRATION by having her own Stampin' Up! Party in the Cat/Art Studio.  Our theme is the Butterfly Gala stamp set on page 35 in the OCCASIONS CATALOG and, of course, we will be using the fabulous coordinating Designer Series Paper in the sale-a-bration brochure! She emailed me this week and said that she has 12 of her friends and have responded to her invitation to come.  How nice ~ I am looking forward to meeting them!  She also said that they were interested in knowing what they will be making so I thought I would share pictures similar to those that I will create for her party.  You too could have a party and from now until the end of March Stampin' Up! has increased the hostess rewards at the $250 level ~ all good for the hostess!!!  Let's set a date!

Guest Artist, Melissa Burroughs

Melissa sent me the picture below earlier in the week.  She had ordered the CALLIGRAPHY ESSENTIALS PROJECT KIT (146857) earlier and took it with her when they went away for the weekend.  The kit makes 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs and includes everything to make the cards.  The CALLIGRAPHY ESSENTIALS stamp set (146783) coordinates with the kit and you can find all of the information on page 11 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog.   Lovely Melissa ~ thanks for sharing!!!

Lasting Lily ~ how long will it last?

On the 17th I mentioned that Stampin' Up! will be offering 'coordinating' products beginning March 1.  This will be one of them ~ framelit dies to coordinate with one of the most popular Sale-A-Bration products - the Lasting Lily stamp set.  This is one of Stampin' Up!'s Distinctive stamp sets and the dies will allow even more creativity.  This is a great set for beginning or avid stampers ~ easy to use with professional results.

Tuesday Project Sheet

On Friday last week I introduced the PAINTED SEASONS BUNDLE that Stampin' Up! recently added to the creative products available during the remainder of SALE-A-BRATION this year.  This PROJECT SHEET provides directions to make this pretty card using the Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the ALL ADORNED stamp set.  You can find both in the 2nd Release SAB Brochure (let me know if you need me to put one in the mail for you!).  The project sheet is double-sided so be sure and print the whole thing ~ pictures on the front and the back!

His Grace

I have a Sunday afternoon stamp club that met yesterday and one of my friends, Dixie, was interested in this card.  I told her I would post it on my blog for her.  The stamp set is "His Grace" and you can find it on page 30 in the current OCCASIONS CATALOG.  It is a very simple card using this beautiful stamp set, Versamark, gold embossing powder and gold foil.
