If you’ve been eyeing any of the beautiful products in the Holiday Catalog, don’t let them get away!
Most of the items are retiring and are only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. That means, when they’re gone, they’re gone!
My favorite deal is the Christmas Traditions punch box, which is 40% off! It’s packaged in a beautiful tin, and includes a stamp set, coordinating punch, acrylic block, and two ink spots. It’s available right now for only $27!!
It would make a great gift for a fellow crafter or a new stamper, or even a treat for yourself!
There are also items that are not retiring, but are on sale, so be sure to check the list closely. You can find it here.
Grab your favorites while you can!
Today and tomorrow only! Click on the link below to shop. You’ll see a list on the left side and an Online Extravaganza category. Check it out!!
‘Tis The Season! The 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog has arrived!!
The holiday season will soon be upon us and what better way to kick off the holidays than with the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog that runs from September 5, 2018 through January 2, 2019. So get out your wish list and jot down the awesome products you’ll need to create your own holiday cheer!
There are seven suites in the holiday catalog, some of the nicest I’ve seen. All Is Bright contains beautiful photographic images that can be both elegant and playful. Festival Farmhouse includes farmhouse imagery and distressed accents that will make your projects cozy and homey. Santa’s Workshop will help you craft the perfect Christmas – just like Santa. The Joyous Noel suite will allow you to deck your halls with elegant touches of copper. Frosted Floral has soft and dreamy florals with a frosted look you can use all year long. Country Lane will help you create the feel of country comfort wherever you live. And finally, Toil & Trouble will bewitch you and your loved ones with cute projects for Halloween.
The new catalog also includes a Punch Box called Christmas Traditions. Like the Darling Label Punch Box, it includes a 6-piece photopolymer stamp set, a clear stamp block, Call Me Clover and Real Red Classic Stampin’ Spots, and the Christmas Traditions Punch that all fit in a beautiful 8” x 8” tin. This would make a great gift for a crafty friend or family member.
There are other nice surprises in the catalog that you just won’t want to miss. I hope when You get your copy, you’ll be inspired to create something beautiful this holiday season!
Let me know if you need a copy!
This is another card from my monthly library class. I love challenging myself to find super cute cards that are quick and easy to make. My biggest challenge is making cards WITHOUT using my Big Shot!
I love dies and embossing folders, but as much as I LOVE my Big Shot, I really hate to lug that thing around! So, I try to design cards that use punches, because they are easy for beginners to use, and easy for me to carry.
I really like the A Good Day stamp set for quick and easy cards. It has cute stamps for different occasions and coordinates with our scallop circle punches.
Stamps: A Good Day
Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Memento Tuxedo Black
Punches: 1 3/8” Scallop Circle, 1 1/2” Circle, Triple Banner
Other: Watercolor Pencils, Wink of Stella, Bermuda Bay Sequins (vintage)
Thanks for stopping by!
We made this card at the Hardin County Public Library this month. It’s a quick and easy one!
If you’re in our area, I’d love for you to join us for some simple stamping. I teach this class on the second Monday of each month. It’s for beginners and it’s also a great chance for me to use up some of my retired products.
Stamps: A Good Day
Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Paper: Bohemian DSP (vintage)
Punches: Triple Banner, 1 3/8” Scallop Circle, 1 3/4” Circle
Other: Gold Metallic Bakers Twine (vintage)
Stay tuned for another simple card from the library class.
I am re-posting this, because the pictures didn’t come through the first time!!
Stampin’ Up! just did a Color Revamp. We lost some of the colors from the “core” line, but some of the most popular retired in-colors came back, along with brand new colors!
During this process, Stampin’ Up! decided to improve on the design of the ink pad cases.
On the left is one of the “old” ink pads, and the new design is on the right. As you can see, the new pads will be a tad bit smaller and sleeker.
The new pads are designed to be easier to open. They will open more like a compact. Instead of flipping and turning, the lid will just lie back flat and slide in.
One of my favorite things about the new pads is how nicely they stack. The old pads just would not stack together, which could be frustrating when they were sliding all over the place! The new pads have small bumps in each corner of the bottom, which fit into small depressions in the top of the next pad. I think they will be so much easier to store.
They technically fit into the current ink pad carousel, but in my opinion, not very well at all. Stampin’ Up! is in the process of designing a storage system for the new pads. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
On the back of each ink pad is a series of peel and stick labels in several languages. Did you know that Stampin’ Up! has demonstrators in ten different countries!
Just pick your preferred language, peel and stick it to the front of the ink pad. Or, get a jump start on a new language by using a different label!
At the bottom of the series of labels, Stampin’ Up! has included a colored label without text. Peel this one off and stick it inside the tray at the end of the stamp pad, so you can easily tell the color when you have several pads out on your work area.
As you can see, Stampin’ Up! heard our pleas for stamp pads that are easier to open and stack nicely! One of the best things about our company? They actually listen to, and act on, our feedback!
These new ink pads are available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog, which just launched on June 1st.
If you’d like to order any of these ink pads, you can shop my online store at the link below.

I used the Picnic With You bundle to create this card for a challenge. Although this fold may go by other names, I call it a Window Accordian Card. If you’d like to see another card using this fold, along with a tutorial, you can find it here.
