Stampin' Up! in real life.


I thought I'd share one of the ways that I use Stampin' Up! in 'real' life.   I made goody bags for my son's birthday party.  He's 2 and his favorite character is Lightening McQueen from the movie "Cars". 

I purchased white and red lunch bags and added racetrack duct tape to the bottom of them.  They make duct tape in all types of colors and designs now!  I printed out a message on my computer with a picture of McQueen and Mater on them of course.  Then I used the Labels Collection Framelits to cut them out.  I added the next layer of the framelits to the background and this is what I came up with.  The kids loved them at the party and I thought they were pretty cute myself!  My little nieces helped me make them.  I worked them hard...Thanks Kayla and Jenea!

Enjoy and don't forget that today is the last day to enter to win the blog candy!

BSF: Stampin' Up! Style


Tomorrow starts a brand new BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) year.  This is my 9th year going to BSF.  I thoroughly enjoy it each year.  This year we are studying Genesis.  We had our leader's meeting today and if it was any indication of what's to come, boy will it be good this year!  So tonight I covered my notebook for the year.  Each week, we have a lecture and I take lots of notes.

Here's my notebook...

I encourage you to find out if there is a class near you and join!

Of course I used all Stampin' Up! supplies...  It was super easy, I just covered the notebook with DSP, sanded down the edges with a sanding block, added ribbon and the letters!

I started out with just a plain composition book and added...
Cardstock:  Patio Party DSP, Primrose Petals
Ribbon:  3/8" Satin Primrose Petals (FREE with a $40 purchase this month!)
Big Shot: Typeset Alphabet BigZ Die

Stampin' Up! Fabirc Sale and Love Message Board

Happy Labor Day!

It's suppose to rain off and on here, but that's okay... a day off is a day off!

I wanted to share this "I Love You because..." frame that I made for my husband for Valentine's Day this year (late sharing with you, I know).  I got this idea from Pintrest!

I love it.  My husband and I write messages on it to one another.  It's super sweet to wake up to a new love note!  It's simple to make...

1. Find a frame
2. Print out "I love you because" on a piece of designer series paper and add it behind the glass.
3. Embellish (I used Deck the Halls Fabric)
4.  Use a dry erase marker to write love notes to your sweetie!

I chose to embellish with fabric flowers using Stampin' Up! fabric.  I adhered them with a hot glue to the frame.  Like it?

I'm showing you this project now because Stampin' Up! is having a sale on some of their discontinued Designer Fabric.  This fabric is only $.99!  It can be found in the clearance rack of my online store here...  Just click on the Shop Now tab in the upper right corner.

Don't forget to leave a message or start following my blog to be entered into the blog candy give-a-way!  

Enjoy time with your family today!

Stampin' Up! Reason to Smile Promotion and Double Embossing Technique Video

I'm back with another card using the Double Embossing Technique and a video tutorial so that you can try it out yourself.  Now, I'm not going to win any awards by the quality of this video (by far, lol), but you get the gist of the technique.  Here's the 2nd card that we made at Stamp Club on Saturday and it was using the Reason to Smile stamp set. 

For the background layer, I used clear embossing powder in addition to the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  Here's how I did it...

This set is a special for July only, and guess what?  It's valued at $20.95, but is only $5 (clear or wood).  It's only available if you place a $50 order.  The Reason to Smile set will not be available after July 31.  Don't wait, get it now!  Click here for more information! 

Easy, but cool, huh?  Here's what I used....
Stamps:  Reason to Smile,  Loving Thoughts
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse
Ink:  Midnight Muse
