Happy New Year

Hi Friends,


UPDATE - as of 4:00 pm.

I have placed the pdf links for both the Occasions and SAB catalogues on the side bar. Also there is a new host code listed for your online ordering pleasure -- see the cat!

*****
Hoping all of you had a terrific Christmas and are enjoying the peace that is January 2017.

Today I was going to share the new Occasions and SAB catalogues on my blog. Alas there are some serious IT issues at Stampin' Up! today and the site is down.

I will get back to you with all the pertinent information soon.


That's all folks!

And ... may you ...

Stampin' Up! 2017 Easel Calendar

Hi Friends,

Stampin' Up! gave us a printable 2017 desktop calendar PDF to use for 3D projects. Isn't that nice?  There was a Paper Pumpkin calendar project awhile back, and Stampin' Up! decided we might like to make a similar project for 2017. Click HERE for that printable PDF.

I looked around online at several templates for desktop calendars. In the end I choose Debbie's as my starting point. My measurements had to be different to accommodate the size and shape of the calendar pages. Here's what I did:

You need a piece of cardstock measuring 11" x 4". Score the long side @ 1/2", 1-1/2", 2-1/2", and 6-3/4".


Fold up all your scored lines, and add some sticky strip to the 1/2" edge.


I liked Debbie's idea of having a piece of whisper white to set off the dsp strip. I used a 3-3/4" x 4" piece of whisper white. The dsp measures 2 x 3-3/4".


Next, I used my Project Life: Day to Day set to stamp the months on the correct numbered calendar and the year on the easel.  That set has retired but the new set is called Project Life Date It.  Then, I adhered the December page directly to the easel.




Then I used a temporary adhesive (most supply stores have them) to adhere each month on top of the other in reverse order.


Next I removed the backing to the sticky strip and closed up the easel. Note how to fold in the bottom to give the easel effect.


To keep the calendar pages from falling off the easel, add a bead of liquid glue along the top.




I used the Petite Petals stamp set and punch to decorate.








stamps: Project Life: Day to Day (retired - current set is Project Life Date It) Petite Petals
ink: island indigo, sweet sugarplum, mint macaron
paper: sweet sugarplum, mint macaron, whisper white, blooms & bliss dsp, and copy paper
other: petite petals punch, multipurpose liquid glue, sticky strip

This will probably be my last post before Christmas. If I don't see you in person, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

That's all folks!

And ... may you ...

Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza coming soon!

Hi Friends,

I am in the throws of making my own Christmas cards to mail out by the end of November. I am up to 60 cards and I think I need only 10 more. This card is very simple but, I think, a little bit elegant.


Notice the blue hue over the snowman? All you need is a sponge and soft sky ink. I just tapped the sponge in the ink and then lightly bounced the sponge over the snowman.

The scalloped mat around the snowman and the sentiment were created with the Layering Ovals Framelits.  However, the oval scallop in white was created with the retired scallop oval punch.

Here are the rest of the details about what I used:

stamps: Christmas Magic, Versatile Christmas (sentiment - retired)
ink: tuxedo memento black, cherry cobbler, soft sky 
paper: whisper white thick (card base), cherry cobbler, This Christmas designer series specialty paper.
other: layering ovals framelits, scallop oval punch (retire), warm & cheer washi tape, dimensionals, multipurpose liquid glue, sponge  

****

And, coming next week there is a sale:


Online Extravaganza: November 21-28 Starting Monday, we’ll have select products 10-40% off for one week only!

Stampin' Up! has told me to check back on Thursday, November 17th to get all the details. I will post them for you to read Thursday evening.

That's all folks!

And ... may you ...
