Video: Hearth & Home Thinlits and Holiday Catalog begins Sept 1st!

2015 cover

September 1st is the big day!

I can post the Stampin’ Up Holiday Catalog in it’s entirety and you can order your holiday goodies!  I would suggest getting orders in to me quickly.  Stampin’ Up has been working on processes to prevent back orders but I’m a little skittish and would rather get ’em in before the rush! I’ve already been getting calls and emails today with pre-orders so it’s not too early if you are ready to shop.

If you didn’t receive your Holiday Catalog in the mail from me and were expecting one, please email me.  If you need one and do not have a demonstrator already, email me here and I will mail you a copy.

One of my top picks for the Holiday catalog is the Hearth & Home Framelits

And look at the adorable photopolymer stamp set you must have to go with it!

I thought I’d use it for something other than a wintery window so I decided to make an interior kitchen window with an herb garden.

I love how it turned out!  I was chatting on the phone one evening with my bestie, Jan, and somehow it evolved into this. I guess I do my best stamping with friends:)

I stamped and cut out a little watering can from the set for the inside:

Here is a video showing how to create the project with punch art herbs:

Much to do before the catalog goes online tomorrow so I better get on it!

Video: Printed Designer Vellum 2 ways

Hi All!

Remember a few days ago I told you about the 4 new Sale-a-bration freebies that Stampin’ Up is adding for March?

I did a quick show & tell video so you can see those ‘in person’.

Pardon the HUGE bruise on my hand, I tried to cover it up but it’s determined to make an appearance.  I have small veins apparently and had some IV issues during a recent eye surgery (yes, I’m seeing better!)

The new printed vellum is really pretty, isn’t it?

Whether you color it with markers or dry emboss it or just leave it on its own, it’s my favorite SAB item this year.

Winter Card Kit 7 Ways

wwkit1

I opened up my Watercolor Winter card kit from the Holiday catalog this week and made a bunch of cards!

Watercolor Winter Simply Created Kit #135869  20 cards/envelopes for $24.95

This is what the projects look like if you follow the directions:

wwkit finished

They are wonderful but the biggest complaint I hear is that they are time consuming and tedious with the paint brush watercoloring.

So I decided to throw out the directions, grab a brayer and go my own way!

It’s a long video for me, about 11 minutes but I show what’s in the kit and then the projects:

Here are a few of my own designs using the kit:

The 2 below are pretty close to the original kit instructions except I brayered instead of paint the color on:

The one below is not using the kit contents at all but using supplies I had on hand like the woodgrain embossing folder.

The Noel die comes from the Wonderful Wreath framelits. The snowflake is from the snowflake card die cuts.
