In My Thoughts - Workshop June 24, 2017

This is another page out of the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168 $10).   This style makes card making so easy because the decoration is done for you in the left corner, all you do is add the message.   I keep using the Stitched Shapes Framelits because I love the little stitching around the edges.   Makes message look good!

Expecting Butterflies - Workshop June 24, 2017

The next two workshop cards featured the new Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack (144168 $10).   Stampin' Up! is designing more paper stacks and I like it and use more of it because it is cut 6"x6" making it a little easier to work with.

Life In a Box - Workshop May 20, 2017

Usually my workshops focus on making a card using a stamping technique.  But I attended a Stampin' Up! demonstrators workshop a few months ago and figured out how to make framed display boxes.   I saw all kinds of possibilities;  flowers, butterflies, seasonal messages like Christmas, Fourth of July, etc.   But this one is a message of perseverance and finding  joy in our lives.   

The method of making the framed box and the stand supporting it from behind, is difficult to describe on a blog.  I did provide my workshop attendees with detailed directions and I can do so for you if you will email me or reply on a blog comment.   The fee for the instructions are $5 and includes postage.   This is a challenging paper craft project but worth the effort.   I made one of these with my 14 year old niece over the weekend and did turned out lovely.

...Because You're Awesome - Workshop May 20, 2017

To make this card, I grabbed a little bit for three Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, Petite Petals and Botanticals For You (from 2017 Sale-a-Bration).     This project is to show how well the Stampin' Up! sets go together.   They are designed to work with each other and enhance the background or message of a card you are designing.   

My workshop class received Crumb Cake envelopes to go with the card.   But sadly, and I don't know why, Stampin' Up! did not continue the Crumb Cake envelopes in the new 2017-2018 Catalog. 

...Because You're Awesome 

Fullsizeoutput_13f9

  • Stamp Sets - Botanticals for You (SAB 2017), Gorgeous Grunge (130517), Petite Petals (133155).
