Stampin’ Up Convention 2015 Holiday Catalog

We got the new Holiday catalog this morning and it is amazing!!  I’m going to show you some cards and 3D items made from products in the Holiday Catalog “Handmade for the Holidays”  You can order from this catalog September 1- January 4, 2016.  Join my team and you can order starting August 1.

This  poinsetta is made with the Festive Flower Builder Punch.


These two cards are made with the Happy Scenes stamp set and Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies.  I’m not sure you can tell in these pictures, but these cards are stunning!

Among the Branches was used to make this Halloween Fry Box.  Don’t you love the new Happy Haunting DSP?



Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies was used to make the word, “peace”holiday-peace



Tip of the Day: Stampin’ Up! now has a Fine-Tip Glue Pen which is perfect for all the “word” thinlits.  Yeah!


I have so much more to show you so please come back tomorrow!



Stampin’ Up! Convention 2015 swaps


I am having a great time at the Stampin’ Up! Convention 2015.  This afternoon I attended a presentation by Lisa Pretto and a Pals Sip and Swap.  Mary Fish’s Pretty Pals are a creative bunch and I received some awesome swaps.  I’m going to be showing you some of my favorites over the next couple weeks.  This beautiful card was made by Lynn Kolcun.  It was great meeting you tonight Lynn, and I love your swap card!  I have everything to make this card except for the Greetings Thinlits.  Guess what is going on my next order?

Tomorrow morning everyone at convention will be receiving the Holiday catalog.  Stop back and I’ll have more for you tomorrow.

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July.  This month we are excited to show off the new 2015 – 2017 Stampin’ Up!

Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush are my favorite new In Colors.

I used the In Color DSP Stacks for the flower and the insert on the envelope.

The sentiment and flower stem came from Tin of Cards stamp set.  A snippet of 1″ Dotted Lace Trim was stapled on for the leaves.  Can you guess where I got the center of the flower?

I used White Emboss Powder and a stamp from Six-Sided Sampler.  I punched it out with the 7/8″ scallop circle punch.

My Dad just got out of the hospital Sunday, after having open heart double bypass surgery and a heart valve replacement a week ago. Today he went back to the hospital after suffering a minor stroke.  I made this card for my Dad tonight to help cheer him up.  Making cards always cheers me up to!
