Daisy Lane Bundle

Another bundle that I love in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is the Daisy Lane Bundle.  We have been using it all month in our stamp clubs.  I always love sharing our Bundles with you because they have coordinating products that you can get for a 10% discount when you purchase the products together.   Take a look at these products below. 

So what do you think about this great new bundle?  I will post the DAISY LANE PROJECT SHEET that we have been using all month in stamp club tomorrow for Project Sheet Tuesday!


Like Sarah said in the video you can really create some awesome 3D flowers with the punch.  You can get this bundle from my online store here.

Add-On Bundle

The August Paper Pumpkin kit had the option of adding a coordinating bundle for just $10, above.  Today, online, I found some great samples created by a demonstrator, Karen Bernhardt, using the ADD-ON BUNDLE ~

In addition to the 'left overs' in the August Paper Pumpkin Kit the projects/cards above include the use of the Gather Together Bundle on page 47 in the Holiday Catalog.

Cuckoo For You

Cuckoo For You caught my eye recently ~ you can find it on page 29 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog ~ did you realize that it creates interactive elements in your projects?  Too cute and the video below will tell you all about it!!!  And, another discovery.....who can find something similar in the new HOLIDAY CATALOG???  First person to email me the answer wins a PRIZE!!!



2019 Holiday Catalog


I have been receiving texts and phone calls since Tuesday about the Holiday Catalog arriving in mail boxes!  What fun!  Susan Tran even loved the dismal weather yesterday so that she 'could make cards and go through the Holiday Catalog'!  I agree Susan!

As you are looking through your Holiday Catalog, don't forget about this August Special Offer from Stampin' Up!

07.01.19_SHAREABLE_EXTRAEXTRA_USSimply, Stampin' Up! has added $30 in product to your STARTER KIT.  That means that you can choose $155 worth of products from the Holiday Catalog by joining ( or rejoining) as a demonstrator this month.  That's right ~ you will be pre-ordering just like all the other demonstrators.  That 'perk' enables us to pre-plan classes and projects and/or to just enjoy these lovely Fall and Holiday products (an early start on your holiday cards!).  You receive FREE shipping on your kit ~ another advantage ~ there is no obligation and you save on all of your future purchases.  If you're interested click on the JOIN THE FUN link, above, or just give me a call and come on over ~ we'll go through it together!!!



Pigment Sprinkles & new embossing powder

Sarah embossed her card using the BIRCH BACKGROUND STAMP (page 156) and the new Shimmer White emboss powder (page 181).  After the card cooled a little she added PIGMENT SPRINKLES and spritzed the card with water.  The flower uses the DAISY LANE BUNDLE on page 23.  And, more lovely swaps from our meeting below.

Pigment Sprinkles and Sarah.....


Sarah's chart
Sarah's Color Chart

You can find Stampin' Up's PIGMENT SPRINKLES on page 179 in the annual catalog.  These are watercolor pigment crystals that you mix with water to make watercolor backgrounds and washes and to use for watercoloring techniques.  There are six jars of color ~ Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight,Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo ~ to coordinate with Stampin' Up's cardstocks, stamp pads, markers and stampin' blends.  (Frankly, that's one of the BIG reasons I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator ~ everything matches ~ and I don't have to worry about coordinating colors!!!  Love it!)

So, at our Team Meeting on Saturday, Sarah demonstrated these sprinkles showing the rest of us how to use them.  She sprinkled the pigment lightly on to Shimmer paper and then misted with water.  She also used an AquaPainter to apply the color.  She did a fabulous job as you can tell by the chart above.  Here's Sarah ~

I'll post Sarah's swap card tomorrow ~ she used the new Shimmer White embossing powder and the Sprinkles on the card.  It turned out fabulous and ~ she won our swap card contest at the meeting!!!

Pressed Petals..........

SU Tuesday Picture

This suite ( page 73 in the catalog), PRESSED PETALS, uses photographs of real pressed petals to create the designer series paper!  And the suite includes a gorgeous combination of stamps, ink and paper, as well as the 3D embossing folder (Scripty ~ with text from real love poems), washi tape with adhesive petals to create flowers for your cards and album pages.  On Saturday at our Team Meeting, Monica Giberti  (from Northern Virginia) demonstrated this suite (and, particularly the beautiful petal washi tape) ~ lovely pictures follow ~ THANK YOU MONICA!!!
