Thank You!! Five times!

Hi Everyone!! I just want to say Thank You!! I have so much to be thankful for and one of those things is you, my customers.  Sale-a-Bration is off to a good start and I want to give everyone who participates a big thanks with FIVE hand stamped cards made my me with every Sale-a-Bration order.  I made A LOT of cards over the year, so as you can image, even thought I try to send out birthday cards and thank you cards to my friends and family, I still have quite a lot left.  I make several for blogs and swaps and videos and classes and just for fun! So, to dwindle down my stash a bit, I thought I would share them with all of you.  I will be sure to send out a variety, so that you get some with different stamp sets, techniques, embossing or punches, dies and embellishments, you name it! I want you to see fun Stampin' Up! products of all kinds, so there may be a Christmas or a Halloween, a Birthday or fun fold, but I will make sure that at least one of the cards shows off a new Sale-a-Bration item and one an Occasions catalog item too, for some new inspiration.

Everyday Hero

Hi everyone!  Today I want to show you a fun new stamp set called "Everyday Hero".  I just love this stamp set!  It is perfect for my family of kids who love super heroes and comic books.  I have lots of heroes that I could send a card to as well, such as teachers or neighbors who help me out in some way.  Or some of the volunteers at church who do so much.



The stamp set has fun super hero imagery with a bunch of buildings and flowing capes, fun word bubble and WOW! I love the sayings too, especially the "is this yours? Because I think you're pretty super" Love it!!












I made a fun Scrapbook page with this set as well.
These pictures were taken a couple summers ago at the library.  They were having a summer reading program for the kids with a super here theme.
I think these stamps would work great for Project Life style scrapbooking as well.












The buildings are really fun.  I highlighted a few windows with the white pencil from the new watercolor pencils set.








I punched out lots of little starts as a fun accent, and paper pieced the cape with melon mambo and daffodil delight cardstock.








Such a fun set!!

Sealed with Love Valentine's with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch

Hi Everyone! Today I wanted to share a trio of fast and fun ways to decorate a little Valentine's Day treat for someone special.  These projects all use items from the Sending Love Suite on Page 14 of the new Occasions Catalog. You can view that catalog here.
I use the Sending Love 6 x 6 paper stack, the Sealed with Love stamp set, and the Love Notes Framelits.  I also use the Scallop tag topper punch three different ways.












First up is this folder tag that is the perfect size to hold a Ghirardelli Chocolate square.  Take a strip of designer series paper cute 2 inches by 6 inches, then fold in half.  Punch the non-folded end with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and add some ribbon to close. Decorate the front as you like.













This next version holds up to three chocolate squares.  Here you cut two strips of designer paper 2 inches by 6 inches.  Punch the tops with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, then trim an inch and a half from the bottoms, then score half an inch on the bottoms of each strip. 
You fold up on your score lines and nest the two strips together and attach with your favorite adhesive. Use the trimmed pieces to make the sides as you see here.   Score from each end 5/8 to make flaps to adhere to the insides of your scallop tags.  Fill with chocolate and use some ribbon to tie your pouch closed.

For the last version you just make a tag to the desired length and punch the top with the Scallop Tag Topper punch and attach your tag to a treat bag.













Here is a video showing each project step by step.

Yummy in My Tummy treat bags

Hi Everyone!  Today I want to share these super cute treat holders made with the new Yummy in My Tummy stamp set!  Love it!  The set has two fun little monsters and a stamp that says Hugs and another that says 'yummy in my tummy'.  So cute and so perfect for Valentine's day!!  You could also pop a party hat on that little monster and he/she would be great for party favors at a birthday too!  Adorbs!



I stamped the monster onto patterned paper from the Tasty Treats design series paper collection.  I cut the monster out and used a scallop circle die from the Layering Circles Framelits dies to cut out his tummy.









Here is a step by step video of how I put the whole thing together.


I use mini gold binder clips to close up the bag, and created a tag with the Sealed with Love stamp set.  Did you notice that cute little Pool Party bow?  That is from an embellishment kit called "cupcakes and carousels".  The kit has the mini bows, some beautiful ribbon, sequins, bakers twine, labels and tassels.
