I did a quick video of one of my favorite suites, Santa’s Workshop!  I had some trouble with youtube today so I hope you can see it! (you may have to come directly to my blog if viewing in your email)

If you can’t view the video, here are the photos of my projects!  They sure were fun to do!


No stamping Required! 
Well I did stamp the sentiment but I just LOVE it when Stampin’ Up creates framelits that do all the fussy cutting out of the Designer Paper!


My favorite is the inside with an envelope for a gift card!

 

I made my own Garden Green cardstock tree for the elves to decorate:)

Here are my 2 favorite products to get to make tons of adorable cards!
The Designer paper Santa’s Workshop and the coordinating 14 Dies, Santa’s Signpost:

Together, these 2 products are $46.   (Personally I’d get 2 packs of the Designer paper so you have an extra for next year since it won’t be available after January 2nd)

Santa’s Workshop Designer Paper  #147809
Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies #147911
Signs of Santa Photopolymer stamp set  #149967
Save 10% on Stamps/Dies Bundle  #149967

If you want longevity with your framelits, add on the coordinating stamp set, Signs of Santa as a bundle to save 10% on the stamps/dies  #149967

If you decide to buy the stamp set/dies bundle + designer paper,
it would be 61.50 + tax/shipping.

In SEPTEMBER only, order at least $50
(from any catalog)
with me and I’ll throw in a special gift!

You can choose between the
Corrugated Embossing Folder
OR I’ll send the kits for all 4 projects free!
(no stamping in the kits, just the papers and accessories needed) I will include a PDF and video of my 4 projects.
You will need your own ink and adhesive/dimensionals.

    OR  

You can let me know via email at Linda@stampingschool.com
for which one you would like!

BTW, Stampin’ Up has a gift for those ordering $250 or more.
A special pack of Designer paper not in any catalog called Dashing Along, which has some favorite designs from years past:

Don’t forget to use your $5 coupons if you earned those last month! You can use all of them at once on one order or save them to use throughout September. No minimum purchase required, just enjoy the savings!

Bouquet Blooms Meets Red Hats

A friend in my neighborhood asked me to make some invitations for her Red Hats luncheon.  While I didn’t have a hat stamp, I improvised by using the classic Red Hats color combo of red and purple and some pretty flowers.   I cased the Stampin’ Up Annual catalog sample on page 167 for my easy layout!

         

I used the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder to give the solid Whisper White card stock a little character. I used Garden Green, Real Red and Gorgeous Grape for my Red Hats colors.   The Bundle is called Bouquet Blooms and actually makes these fun fold cards, too!
I also used the new Sprig Punch for the green leaves poking out.  That will be available to all on Sept 4th!

Stampin’ Up’s home office made a video showing how to use the dies for the fun fold card:

 


YES!  I will be offering my Holiday Shares!

I’ll post those on August 28th, when we are officially allowed to take payments for them.  (that’s 7 days before the new catalog begins on Sept 4)

2018 Alaska Incentive Trip Recap!

Hi All!
Matt and I just returned from our week with Stampin’ Up on the Alaska incentive trip.  It was a wonderful trip away and it’s also great to be home:)  Some of you are on Facebook and followed along with me but for those not on social media, I’ll recap here on the blog!

Before I do, just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the last day for our ink pad starter kit promo!  If you decide to join my team by July 31, you get a free set of 10 ink pads!
Email me for details. 
New demos can also get in early on the Holiday catalog pre-order in August!

Stampin’ Up always leaves a little welcome on our cabin door.
This year is a wooden photo frame!

We boarded on a Friday and got settled in.  Beautiful balcony view and roomy cabin!


My guy loves the ocean.  He must have sailor sea legs in his ancestry somewhere!

On Saturday, we had our General Session for achievers and their guest.
It’s a business update and sneak peeks of the upcoming Holiday catalog!  (Demonstrators can order from it in August and customers on Sept 4*)
It’s a beautiful, stocked full catalog as usual!
*if you have ordered from me in the last 6 months, you will automatically receive one from me. If you want to request one, email me with your address to Linda@stampingschool.com.   (Demos, you will receive a complimentary copy from SU.)


(It’s not that easy to get a selfie on a windy balcony with a ship rockin!! I look surprisingly calm but I was trying not to get knocked over LOL)


During our General Session, we received some freebies!  Look at this beautiful foiled holiday paper!


This is a fun tool coming out in the Holiday catty, too!  It’s called Take Your Pick, and it has a little spatula for getting up stuck pieces or scooping up embellishments.  It can be pulled out and replaced with 2 stylus ends. On the other end is a sticky end for picking up sequins, etc. and it has an extra replacement sticky end.


This folder…..Love!  its a corrugated folder that creates deep grooves.  Shelli, our founder, showed these cute samples using it along with a new stamp set:


The hospitality room is full of candy and stamping inspiration!  This is where the guys hang out….I can’t even imagine how many pounds of peanut M&Ms they go through that week!

SUNDAY – JUNEAU

We were at sea until Sunday when we got to Juneau.   Matt and Tom went kayaking and I went to see the Mendenhall Glacier and Mt. Roberts tram.


Janet, Patsy and I enjoying the cool water breezes after a long hike to get up there!
(Alison and Des were with us too!)


When in Alaska, have some King Crab legs with chowder and crab cakes!  And the most fantastic Alaskan Amber beer that I can’t get here.


The view of our cruise ship 1800 feet up from Mt. Roberts.

In the hospitality room there were LOTS of samples on display featuring stamps coming in the holiday catalog!  We have a poinsettia each year but I love when they have coordinating framelits. too:

    
I tried to get a good shot of the detail above in the right photo but in person it’s really pretty.  The set below is called Alpine Adventure and there is a sled framelit die, too!

    

MONDAY – SKAGWAY

Matt and I were super excited about a Grizzly Bear excursion along the Chilkat/Chilkoot river in Skagway.  We had been to Alaska about 5 or 6 years ago and missed seeing bears so were hopeful we could get some this time but no.  Hard to control nature!  But we saw pretty scenery…

Then feeling a little ‘blah’ over our non-bear excursion we had a little time left for some
mush puppies!  We stopped to see the Iditerod-in-training sled dogs for some puppy breath and play time:

TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY- TRACY ARM FJORD

We were at sea the next 2 days!  It’s a long time to be on the ocean and it was really too chilly to be on deck or in the pool.  We enjoyed the views, friends and ship entertainment.  Saw goats on the rocks, eagles and a few seals.  Cindy, Janet and I got a little  itchy for land but luckily SU had some nature set up in the hospitality room LOL

 
THURSDAY – VICTORIA
We decided to go very local and took a tour called Eat Like a Canadian!
So much fun with a great group of friends and we ate well indeed!
From our first time enjoying Poutine to Nanaimo bars, candied salmon, crab cakes, smoked tuna…..our taste buds were singing! Our tour guide MaryLou gave us a walking tour with history and food at the same time, perfection.

After all these years, I still rush back to the room to see what they left for us.  Like opening presents under the tree, I can’t wait to see what’s inside!  Giving us the upcoming, new Holiday catalog goodies is EXTRA exciting!
Here are the goodies on our pillows during the trip:


Who doesn’t love deer for the holidays?  And the framelit dies….love.


Beautiful papers with ph0to-realism ornaments and pine on one side


Annual catalog ‘stocking stuffers’

This jacket is actually gray but the lighting in the cabin was odd.  It’s a perfect weight and fits me perfectly, which most don’t.  There’s a SU logo on the back collar.  Love it!

   

Swirls & Curls embossing folder!  This will be fun for winter and all year, really!


A custom logo Bluetooth speaker!


A cool Scratch Map so we can scratch off all the amazing destinations
we have traveled with SU over the years


Another fun bundle coming in the Holiday catalog!  Matt said the light bulb punch
looks like a man’s shoe!


Isn’t this a pretty SU logo tote bag? Holds lots of stuff
including some 12×12 paper stuffed inside, too.

A   
This may be my favorite!  Think Tin Tiles embossed metals….going to be fun!

My FAVORITE bundle so far!  The framelit word dies are super!  Lots of possibilities!

Thanks for stopping by and if you have read all the way to the end, good job!
I know it was a long one!

P.S  August 1st begins BONUS DAYS COUPONS!   You may remember those from last year.  Spend $50 in August and get a coupon in your email for $5 off orders in September when the Holiday catalog begins.  Collect as many as you want and spend anyway you like!

Direct to Paper Pillow Box

Matt and I are heading to Alaska tomorrow on the Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip cruise!  This is our 12th trip with SU and continually thankful for my team and faithful customers who helped me earn it each year.  I’ll be posting on my Stamping School Facebook page if I see good ‘stampy’ things I can post:)  We will have a general session one day to see some sneak peeks of the upcoming Holiday catalog, so that will be exciting!

Before I go, I thought I’d share a quick project:

I love that Stampin’ Up is carrying these cute, premade pillow boxes this year in the annual catalog!  I think the Crumb Cake and white dots are versatile but I want more colors:)

Sponging takes a LONG time to get the coverage you need. I chose the Direct to Paper application, where I press the ink pad directly to the pillow box.  In this case, the new Merry Merlot is a perfect color to go with the Waterfront stamp set theme I needed.  Grap a paper towel or napkin before you begin.

(By the way, if you are on my Stamping School,
I showed 2 other videos with a reptile twist! )

It will be dark at first – once you wipe off the excess, it will be perfect!

Rub off the excess ink.  Switch ends and use the paper towel to
hold the inked side of the box down:

Repeat and rub the other side.  It will dry lighter!  Ink lightens when it dries, paint darkens.  Not sure why!


Stampin’ Up Product List

Choose a group of 10 new ink pads from the Brights, Regals or Subtles, Neutrals or In Colors… 10 new ink pads in your choice of color group when you join as a demonstrator (hobby discount shopper or business demo)

What a great time to start up or come back and re-join for a while!

You choose products up to $125 in your kit, pay only $99 and tax, free shipping and during July only, 10 free ink pads. Pretty good! There is also a ‘demo only’ preorder special and that can be added to your kit also – see the bottom of my post for that info)

As a hobby demo you can enjoy the 20% discount and place your own orders (I’ll walk you thru how to do that as your team leader, it’s easy) Here is my link to join:
