Thinlit Tips Video & Samples

I’ve had quite a few of you purchase one or both of these Stampin’ Up flip card Dies so I thought I’m make a tip video for how to add layers as well as extend the card to create a flap and writing area. (I’m not sure who came up with that original idea to add the flap but well done!)

If you are viewing from your email, click HERE to see video on my blog.

I received many great swaps using the new thinlits and as promised in the video, here are a few of my favorites!


This cute little guy was a swap created by Jill Hilliard. The reindeer is from the SU Holiday catalog called Color Me Christmas


This pretty snowflake card was created by April Lopez.  The scallop comes with the circle card thinlits and April used it with SU Silver Foil Sheets.


I wish there was a name written on the back, maybe Iina Lee? I think it had a cello envelope with her label on it, which is long gone!


I love getting a swap every year from Georgia Giguere, who puts her family photo inside! Use the Sizzix Circle framelits and the magnetic platform to make easy circles!


Everyone loves this cute owl punch card by Linda Gutierrez!


Sandy Hancock made this one and I love how she used the SU Stripes embossing folder on one side of the flip card.


Here is the extended version of the flip card I showed in the video. It’s by Sue Kempter-Miller.

Envelope Punch Board: New Cool Papercrafting Tool!

The latest cool tool from Stampin’ Up is available starting today!  It’s called the Envelope Punch board:


Watch Brian Pilling from Stampin’ Up score and punch envelopes.  It’s easy and makes 66 sizes of envelopes!

I have one here in my stamp room but with my 2 eye surgeries, I’m not focused enough yet to try it out.  This week I should get my hands on it and play!  I was thinking I wouldn’t need it with my diagonal score board but this is much easier and I LOVE that it punches the notches out so nicely. It’s also more compact and with at least 66 sizes, that’s pretty cool!

Envelope Punch Board  Item #133774  $19.95

More Details:

  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It’s small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it on the go!  Portable and easy to store.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It’s easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year’s annual catalog, so it’s here to stay.

Order by email, phone (866-460-4902)or online in my store at  click on Shop Now.   The item number should be active today after noon Utah Time.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and go stamp something!

Some love the convenience of having the surprise projects come in the mail every month. Some don’t like that they can’t see what is coming ahead of time!  Advanced crafters will most likely think they are too simple while some love that they can just whip up a few things easily.  It’s not for everyone but it’s worth a try and you can cancel the membership if you don’t like it.


For my SU customers, before you place your holiday catalog order, email me first!  I have a gift for you:)
