Be Mine, Valentine, Paper Pumpkin January 2015 & a VIDEO!

Hello, Crafty Friends!  I'm here today with another Valentine's Day card.  Any surprises?  I LOVE Valentine's Day (if you couldn't tell already!), and especially love sending cards to my family, friends and customers on this special day.  What about you?

Did you know that Valentine's Day is the 2nd most popular card giving time of the year?  Yep...Christmas is #1.


Anyway, I CASE'd this card design from Claire Daly, a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Australia.  I HAD to make this card because I needed a Valentine's Day card...pronto!  And, I just LOVE this design!

I used Strawberry Slush as my base color...a true favorite of mine in the pink color family.  It's bright, but it's just right.


Not only did I have to give the design a try, but I also HAD to play with the Filled with Love (Paper Pumpkin January 2015) kit as soon as it arrived!  You need to understand the cuteness going on in the little red box!  The stamps, hearts, treat toppers, and colors all screamed, "Let's play!"  


The only elements I used from the Paper Pumpkin kit were the die cut gold foil trimmed heart and the "Be Mine, Valentine" stamp, but that was all this card needed.


I hope you like this card, I hope that Claire doesn't mind me borrowing her design, and I especially hope you will join me and my cohort of happy customers who have a Paper Pumpkin subscription, and are absolutely delighted with the surprises that arrive each month in the little red box! 

If you'd like to learn more about Paper Pumpkin, check out the FAQ or feel free to ask me any questions you have.  And if you like what you see, please go ahead and sign up TODAY or try it out with a pre-paid subscription for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months!  You can put your subscription on hold or cancel anytime.  Really!


Below is a video Stampin' Up! created to show you just how adorable, fun and easy these treat bags shown above are to put together!  And...you can use the stamps all year long.  Saying "I love you" is something you can do year round, right?  Enjoy!

You Amaze Me

Hi Crafty Friends!  I am delighted to share with you this beautiful You Amaze Me Card!  

I fell head-over-heals-in-love with the Crazy about You Stamp Set and Hello You Thinlits Dies (sold as a bundle for 15% savings!) when I saw them in the Occasions Catalog, and that bundle was one of the FIRST things I ordered.  However, time has not been on my side, so I didn't have time to play with them until recently.

  

Anyway, using a B-side of one of the Best Year Ever Designer Series Papers (a FREE Sale-a-Bration item) as my background and one of Dawn McVey's beauties as my inspiration, I went right to work. 


I LOVE how this card turned out!  It has layers of texture and color...it just works!


If you haven't had a chance to use our word Thinlits Dies yet, let me give you a little tip.  Even if you have, you may not know this.

TIP:  Use wax paper (you can find it at your local 99 cent or dollar store) between your paper and your die...in fact, double up the wax paper.  (It's thin, so you don't have to worry about it making your sandwich in your Big Shot or other die cutting machine too thick.)  You will find that the die cut words slide out very smoothly from the die when you do so.  I hope this helps!

You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Have a great day!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Be Mine & You Made My Day

Happy Monday, All!  As promised, I am back with the two cards that my guests made at my Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Premier two weeks ago.  I'm so excited to share these projects with you today!  
My first card--Be Mine Card--is perfect for Valentine's Day.  When designing it, my goal was to make a card that was both masculine and fun.  


I used the You Plus Me Stamp Set and Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (the bundle) and Sweetheart Punch to accomplish the look.

 



For my second card, I got inspiration from a card designed by Mary Fish, fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, that I pinned to my Cards :: All Occasions board a few weeks ago.  I adore Mary's design, but I changed a few things.


For this You Made My Day Card, I used the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set, exclusive Sale-a-Bration Best Ever Suite of products (Best Day Ever Stamp Set, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and Best Year Ever Accessory Pack), and Flower Medallion Punch.


I really love how this card turned out, and my guests did too! 



They had so much fun making these cards!  I hope you like them too.  You will find all of the products I used to create these cards below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Have a great day!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Lisa's Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Premier

Hello Crafty Friends!  I hope that you had a nice weekend.  Mine was great (considering it was a 3-day weekend!), but it was busy.  I got a lot of crafting in, hung out with my family, and Julian and I finally started tackling his Lego City Fire Station that he got for Christmas.  We're still not finished with it, but that's another story for another day!
  
I'm sorry that I wasn't able to make good on my promise last week about sharing pictures and details from my Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Premier, but I had a lot going on last week.  Please beg my pardon!




My display table.

Anyway, my event was held on Saturday, January 10th, and it was similar to my Customer Appreciation Event that I held last year.
 

Regardless of the name, this event is something I like to do for my best customers, so they can take home some fun make 'n takes with the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration products.  I love sharing the new stuff with them!

Lots of Stampin' Up! tools and everyday essentials.

Let's get crafty at the craft table!

We made two cards--one for Valentine's Day and one everyday occasion card.  They really liked both.

My IKEA storage solution--1 Expedit shelving unit sandwiched in between 2 PAX Wardrobes designed with shelves and drawers that fit a great deal of crafting supplies!

Lemyrtle with her giftie from me in hand.  All of the ladies received one at the end of the event.

Cheryl and Traci deciding what to order.

We had a blast, and I hope you enjoyed checking out my Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Premier as well as seeing parts of my Craft Room (AKA our converted 2-car garage).  I'll be sure to show off the projects we made in an upcoming blog post because they deserve a post of their own!  Hate to make you wait, but it will be worth it...I promise!

Have a wonderful day, and, until next time, happy crafting!

You're Sweet

Happy Monday, All!  I hope that you had a nice weekend.  I sure did...I had some of my favorite ladies over on Saturday for my exclusive Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Premier, and we had a blast!  I'll share more details later this week.


Anyway, let's get to some other fun!  This You're Sweet Card is another Valentine's card, but it can actually be a "thank you" card or a "thinking of you" card too.


I am quite smitten with this You Plus Me Stamp Set and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  Can you tell?   


I actually borrowed this design from our NEW! 2015 Occasions Catalog.  You will find my inspiration near the top of page 4.  Even though it's shown as a treat holder, I thought that it would make a perfect card.  And I think I was right!


Because I used Real Red Cardstock as my card base (which is a little dark), I lined the inside of my card with Whisper White Cardstock and stamped three little hearts in the lower right corner.  Love that little detail!


I LOVE this card!  It just screams sweet nothings.  I hope you like it too and that you will make one too.  You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Have a wonderful day, and, until next time, happy crafting!

It's Your Day

Hello and happy Friday, All!  Today is your day!  Can you tell that I'm just a bit excited about today's card share?!  Well, you are right!

This It's Your Day Card came to me in a flash, and it's exactly what I pictured in my mind's eye!  For this card, I used all new products from the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  


The sentiment is from the Big on You Stamp Set, and the flower is from the Crazy about You Stamp Set.  Isn't that flower purdy?!  And the flower in the coordinates with the Flower Medallion Punch...I just love that!


My color scheme consists of Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana.  Aren't these colors fabulous together?



I'm kind of addicted to stamping the inside of my cards now.  Do you do this too?


Well, that's all for today, folks!  I hope you like this card and feel inspired to go BIG with your sentiments too!

You will find all of the products I used to create this card below even though you can't get the stamp set, paper or punch until January 6th (that's next Tuesday!).  Order the other products you need by going to my Online Store or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!
