Stampin' Up! In the Trees

I am so very tired of all of the cold weather we are having.  I long for warm, summer weather...laying in the shade of a tree, reading, watching the birds at the bird feeders....

In the Trees does that for me.  I love creating scenes.  I used a sponge dauber to fill in the trees, sponged the sky with Soft Sky and fussy cut the squirrels.  I used the Stamparatus to line up the trees and the hammock.  

I love this new tool!  There is so much you can do with it!  If you weren't lucky enough to get one during the early release period, it will be in the upcoming Annual Catalog in June.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Happy Card Kit

Kits!  I love kits!  These are perfect for beginner stampers because most of our kits, including Lots of Happy, are all inclusive.  They come with the stamp set and a clear block, and ink spot or spots, adhesive and all of the embellishments you need to make the cards. Kits are great for experienced stampers as well.  It's always nice to have cards made up and at the ready.   

This kit in particular comes with colored pencils and coordinating ribbon.  The cost of this kit is $35 (US) and makes 20 cards.  That works out to $1.75 per card!  And you can purchase a refill kit for $21 and make 20 more cards!  If you are so inspired, you can alter the designs from the kit and do your own thing.

The stamp set is very versatile so when you are done with the kit, you can use it to make other cards.

Unboxing Stampin' Up 2018-2019 New Catalog Premiere Order!

This is an exciting year for Stampin' Up!  We are celebrating 30 years!  I have been a demonstrator for 15 of those years.  Probably the most exciting time is the release of the new catalog.  And every year I say "This is the best catalog!"  And this year is no exception.  

Those of us who attend OnStage not only receive a copy of the new catalog before anyone else, we have an opportunity to order a selection of product.  Every 5 years or so, Stampin' Up! does either a color refresh with changing just a few colors or a color revamp, changing lots of colors.  This year is a revamp.  We are retiring 13 colors, adding 10 brand new colors and bringing back 5 retired In Colors!

Check out my Unboxing Video to see all of the colors as well as new product that I ordered.  I can't wait to start playing and will post projects soon!

Stampin' Up Hello Friend Card Kit

I am loving these kits!  For those stampers who like to heat emboss, this is the perfect kit for you!  While this is not an all inclusive kit, you only need to add a few common items that most crafters have on hand.  The coordinating stamp set, Hello Friend can be used independent of the kit as well. 

Let your creative juices flow and have fun with this kit!

Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Kits

Happy 5th Birthday Paper Pumpkin!  This kit is so me!  I love Vintage / Shabby Chic cards and was so excited to get this kit.  I couldn't wait to open it and make up the projects.  

For those of you not familiar with Paper Pumpkin, it is a monthly papercrafting kit.  It is all inclusive so comes with the stamp set, ink spots, adhesives, die cuts and all the embellishments to complete the projects.  You can make the projects as designed or alter them as you want.  There are plenty of sites that feature alternative ideas for each kit.  I actually altered the envelopes by cutting them apart and making cards out of them.

Stampin' Up! Charming Cafe

Peekaboo Peach is an In Color that will be retiring at the end of May.  I'm going to miss it.  It's so bright and fresh!  I always think of warm weather and summer, which I hope will be here soon.  I am definitely ready for this cold weather to be over!  

I thought Peekaboo Peach would be perfect for this card - bringing thoughts of eating "al fresco" to mind.
