Announcing: Print Poetry Stamp Camp & Class by Mail!

I recently had the idea to put on a joint stamp camp with a couple of the fabulous gals in my Fun n’ Crafty team.  So, we got together, designed some projects, figured out the details, and now I’m super excited to share what we created with you!

Print Poetry Stamp Camp

You will use those supplies to complete all of the projects in one afternoon.  That is $21 worth of product plus lots of extras (including supplies for at least 14 more cards) and doorprizes for only $30.

This is a great way to get some new ideas for how to use your patterned paper that I know you have lying around at home! Plus with the instructions you can make more of your favorites without having to think or try to figure out the measurements!

What Do You Get When You Cross an Elephant & a Pinwheel?

What do you get when you cross an elephant and a pinwheel?  A seriously cute summery card, that is what!

Card created by Margaret Hall

This is a card that I received as part of a swap at Leadership earlier this year but with the weather changing, I was feeling the need to celebrate the arrival of spring with a fun card and I thought of this one!

I love how Margaret used paper piecing to give the elephant such a cute look!  Plus the idea of the elephant from Henry Says blowing the pinwheel on a summer day is such a fun idea.  I love the whimsy this pinwheel die gives you but I’m still working on different ways to use it, so I love seeing examples like this.

Blog Candy Winner!

It’s winner time!  I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by my blog last week and left me comments as part of my Sale-a-Bration send off.  It was fun coming up with all the projects and I hope you got some fun ideas as well.

So, after using Random.org, I drew a name and the winner of 50 sheets of 6×6 designer paper is:

Great cards. I wasn’t sure I wanted this set at first, but really like it now. My favorite is the chalkboard technique card.

Thanks again and Kelly, I’ll be getting your paper out to you shortly!

This and That – Did You See What’s New?

So, yesterday was the big launch of a new product line from Stampin’ Up! called “This and That”.  It is coming out in the new catalog in June (and supposedly with an expanded offering) but they are releasing some of it early to us.  Always fun to start playing early!

This and That header

If you are at all familiar with Smash books, you may feel familiar with this type of product — and if you have no idea what I mean by “Smash Book”, have no fear (and you are NOT alone!).  I have more info for you below.

First, here are the goodies they just released:

This and That product line
Check out the full PDF flyer with details on the This and That line

What you see there is:

1.  A journal (kind of like an artist’s journal only with more decorated interior pages totalling 60 pages or 30 spreads)

2.  Designer series paper that coordinates with the collection.  (and it is hard to see, so here is the actual patterns:
image

3.  A rotary date stamp!

4.  Coordinating element stickers

5.  WASHI TAPE!!!!

So much fun stuff that will be great together but also awesome to use on your other projects like cards, scrapbooks, whatever.

Get it all and save 15%!  Yup, you can get any of it individually but if you want it all, there is a bundle available from now through April 30th that gets you an extra 15% off everything.  Sweet!

But what the heck do you do with it?

Hee hee, I know some people are totally asking that question.  So, the short answer is that this is meant to be a journal you take with you and when you have some memento, memory, thought.  You can jot it down and use the accents and tapes to created a coordinated creative place to record that memory.  To give you an idea, check this out:

 

Finally, to celebrate the launch of this product line, Stampin’ Up is giving away a trip to San Diego!!!

Go Here To Enter!

(This is a facebook page contest, so don’t be surprised if you get taken to Facebook)

 

I’m going to give it a go and plan to hopefully use it as a way to record all the cute one-liners my kids and hubby are always coming up with.  How would you use yours?

Psst – You may notice that this product line includes the colors Calypso Coral and Pool Party, both of which are In Colors that are slated to retire at the end of May.  Rumor has it, this means they will be somehow making it back into the regular rotation instead of being retired.  So, good news if you love either color!

Ok, now back to the last Send Off this week – Pretty Petites and the Petite Curly Label Punch!

Pretty Petites

Now, I’m a total sucker for stamp sets that have matching punches.  So when I saw I could get the stamp set AND the punch both free during Sale-a-Bration…. I’ll admit those were my very first items ordered!

Wanna see some of the ideas that I came up with or I was swapped at Leadership?

Psst! Did you notice the ink spots on the lower right corner of the card?  Know where those are from?  It is one of the stamps in the My Paper Pumpkin welcome kit!  Just because those stamps are exclusive to that kit doesn’t mean you can’t use them on other projects, right? Smile

Here is the close up of the stamped images:

And this awesome birthday card I received as a swap from Lisa Althouse.

Cute, right?

So, now I’ve highlighted Petite Pairs, Vintage Verses, Madison Avenue, and Bloomin’ Marvelous.  I know I skipped Feelin Sentimental, but I somehow managed to miss getting that set.  But if you want another idea, I loved this one from Lori Reid:

Sale-a-Bration Send Off: Vintage Verses

Ack!  Can you believe TOMORROW is the LAST DAY for Sale-a-Bration?!  I swear I always find my groove and my love of a stamp or scrapping product right before they are discontinued or become hard to get!  Turns out this is one of those sets.

Yup, I’m talking about Vintage Verses

Vintage Verses stamp set

You see, I had grand ideas for this stamp set…. oh the projects I was going to make with it.  The cool techniques that would be perfect to use with these stamps.

And then life got in the way.

So that brings us to now when I pulled out the stamp set again for one last hurrah before the stamp set goes away for good and turns out it is awesome!

My favorite sentiment is the “There’s Only One You” which I LOVE for scrapbooking.  If you saw my Sunburst Scrapbook Layout then you may have noticed I used this sentiment as the title for that page.  But here are some other ideas you can try with this set:

I just had to try out the Chalkboard Technique with this stamp… anyone interested in a video on this technique?

I received this Butterfly Thanks card from my awesome friend and downline, Pam Wu, which in turn inspired my trying out coloring in the letters of the Thanks in my cards I’m sending out for orders placed this month:

This last card using the Spec-tacular Single Stamp that I thought was the coolest stamp.  I was going to do a whole blog post on it and this card but I wanted to share how cool it goes with the Vintage Verses sentiment so I’ll just have to do another card with this stamp later.  (And just a heads up – the glasses single stamp is only available through 3/31)  So, if you love it, grab it now!

I seriously can’t pick a favorite from these cards and sentiments…. too much fun!  If you had to pick which is your favorite?  Leave me a comment and let me know and you’ll be entered into the drawing for this weeks blog candy.

And stop back by tomorrow for my last Sale-a-Bration Send Off!  I’ll be focusing on Pretty Petites for our let set of shares.  Smile

Sale-a-Bration Send Off: Bloomin’ Marvelous

Yesterday I shared some ideas for the Patterned Occasions stamp set and so today we are on to our next set – Bloomin’ Marvelous!

image

I’ll admit, this is a stamp set that I wasn’t too excited about when I first saw it.  I thought the sentiments were cute but the images were just eh.

Well, then I started seeing the samples and I had a total change of heart!  Smile  So, here are some ideas you can try if you decide to pick up this set:

 

And my absolute favorite because it feels so fresh and summery to me:

So see… lots of different looks and sentiments all from one very unassuming stamp set.  What do you think?  Is this a set you can imagine using?
