Hi there and Happy Thursday! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for a long holiday weekend and the unofficial start of summer. This week our weather has been gorgeous which has allowed me to walk outside during my lunch break. I'm still busy gearing up for my new catalog launch for June 1st, but wanted to pop on and post a reminder about the Share What You Love Early Release bundles. The bundles expire May 31, 2018. Here are the three options:

$57.00
Item # 149524

Manly Moments Card & Tuesday Tip Video Tutorial


Manly Moments Stampin Up

Happy Tuesday! I have been busy preparing for a huge new catalog rollout bash so hence a bit of a blog hiatus the past week. I’m back today sharing a quick and simple card featuring items from the May 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit Manly Moments. Make sure to watch my video below for a bonus project I show.


This month’s kit is perfect to make cards for all the men in your life. Holy cow the stamp set in the kit includes 21 images. Comment here on my blog, YouTube, or Facebook page for a chance to win supplies to make two of the cards in the kit. Open to US residents only.

The only items I added to today’s project were Crumb Cake ink since I don’t have the Mossy Meadow ink and some Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Looking for a monthly crafting escape? Paper Pumpkin comes once a month in your mailbox and since the kits are already prepped for you it is perfect for anyone to put together! Subscribe here by June 10th to receive the June kit. You won't want to miss it!

I’ll be back on Thursday with another project to share.

Happy Stampin’,

Gotta Have It All Bundle & Tuesday Tip Video Tutorial

Stampin Up - Share What You Love

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I can’t believe half of May has already passed by. We had a wonderful Mother’s Day lunch and visit. I wish it was a little warmer on Cape Cod on Sunday. Unfortunately May can still be cool there by the water.

For today’s project I am featuring the largest bundle in the May 2018 Share What You Love promotion. The bundle is the Gotta Have It All Bundle. I love everything about this bundle, but especially the Specialty Designer Series Paper. The paper is a bit thicker than our regular DSP and it is a double pack with 24 sheets and did I mention the paper is pearlized? Did you know 2018 is the 30th anniversary of Stampin’ Up! and this suite of products is designed with pearl accents.

Measurements for my card:
Mint Macaron card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Mint Macaron cardstock - 4" x 5 1/4"
Very Vanilla cardstock - 2" x 3"
DSP - 1 1/4" x 4"
Ribbon - 5" piece
Baker's Twine - 6" piece

If you buy any of the three bundles this month from my Online Store I will email you a PDF tutorial of a four card class featuring the Share What You Love Suite.

Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll be back on Thursday to share another project.

Happy Stampin,
Christine

Happy Mother’s Day – Love What You Do Card & Bag

Stampin Up - Love What You Do

If you are a mom I hope you have a lovely day celebrating with your family. I whipped up a card and matching bag for my mother-in-law yesterday. I’m featuring some items from the Gotta Have It All Bundle from the Share What You Love suite of products and the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. The Share What You Love products are currently available in exclusive bundles in the month of May.

Measurements of the card:
  • Rich Razzleberry card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
  • Whisper White – 4” x 5 ¼” (two pieces, one is for inside)
  • DSP – 2 ½” x 5 ¼”
  • Ribbon – 6” piece
Measurements of the bag:
  • Rich Razzleberry – 6 ¼” x 8 ¼”
  • DSP – 6” x 8”
  • Ribbon – 7” piece
Tips:
  • The bag I used is 8” x 10” and I bought it at Dollar Tree. I like the kraft color as it seems to go with everything
  • The flowers in the stamp are stamped off once to get a lighter color
  • Pop the oval up with 6 dimensionals (3 across the top, 3 across the bottom)
  • Change the sentiment and this would make a cute birthday or thank you card
I’ve really been missing my Mom this week. She would have turned 73 on Tuesday so it is always hard having her birthday and Mother’s Day during the same time. I know she is smiling down on me. I am thankful I have so many amazing mom’s in my life from my mother-in-law, aunts, sister-in-law and girlfriends.

It’s been a busy spring weekend and I’m looking forward to a yummy lunch today with family. The concert we attended Friday night was great although a bit loud. It was a small venue and I was so surprised when our seats were in the 5th row. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. I’ll be back on Tuesday with another project to share.

Happy Stampin,
Christine

Coffee Café Card



Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Yesterday the weather was gorgeous and we headed into Boston for a few hours and then caught a live local band last night. This morning I was able to get some design work done for my upcoming classes. Today is my wedding anniversary and unfortunately the weather was terrible, so we headed to a yummy brunch and then to a local art museum.

Is coffee a big part of your life? Surprisingly I would answer no, but I know plenty of people who need their coffee fix. My hot beverages of choice are tea and hot chocolate. The card I’m sharing today features products from the Coffee Break Suite. If you love the bundle of products (stamp set & framelits) purchase them now while you can save 10%. When the products continue to the new catalog they will not have the bundled pricing. Here is a photo of the bundle products:


Measurements of my card:
Soft Sky card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Early Espresso layer – 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”
Soft Sky layer – 3 ¾” x 5”
Coffee Break DSP – 1 ½” x 3 ¾”

Reminder there are several items I used on this card available while supplies last since they are retiring. Pickup them up today in my Online Store.

  • Coffee Break Designer Series Paper
  • Garden Green ink pad
  • Soft Sky cardstock
I’ll be back on Tuesday with another project to share.

Happy Stampin’,
Christine
