12.11.2018....BREAKING NEWS


NEW Cling Stamps In & Wood Mount Stamps Out!

Stampin' Up! announced at On-Stage that NEW Cling Stamps are coming with the Occasions Catalog!  

Cling Stamps are just like the current Clear Mount Stamps, but they have an extra-sticky vinyl sticker, so the stamp will STAY on your clear block!  

You'll see the stamps from the NEW Occasions Catalog will be available in either Cling Stamps or photopolymer styles only.  

Wood mount stamp sets will officially be phased out with the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The only exception will be background stamps, which will continue to be available in wood mount.

In one of my Card Maker's Classes I put out a challenge to anyone who wanted to play. 

I gave each of them a card kit (each one was different pieces and different colors) and told them they had to make a sympathy card. 

They had to use all the pieces in the card kit, but could add whatever they wished. 

This is a lot of fun, as every kit is different, and they are challenged to make what they have work.

Here are the AMAZING cards that the five who participated came up with:

Card One: Blue and White Embossed Sympathy with Flowers:

Card Two:  Grey White and Black with Butterflies Sympathy:

 Card Three:  Vellum Overlay with cutout window and Gold Ribbon Cross:

Card Four:  Purple Split Window Flower Sympathy:

Card Five:  Grey White and Yellow Bird Sympathy:

Aren't they GORGEOUS!  They all did a phenomenal job....and all out of leftover card kits from  years ago!

13.09.2018...Birthday Layout....Bella and Friends

So...this is a cute birthday layout I made last night made entirely from scraps (except for the 12 x 12).
It uses stamps from Bella and Friends as well as Birthday Wishes for You. 
The images were stamped in Memento Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blend markers. 

Here is a couple of close up shots:

I wish you could see the glitter....I used Wink of Stella on the confetti, the title and the balloons for some sparkly goodness!

Why not join me for a scrapbook class...where you can make cute layouts like these.  

My next scrapbook class dates are:

Wednesday, September 26 @ 6:30
Wednesday, October 10 @ 6:30
