It's Time To Celebrate! The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is Here!




We have waiting long enough don't you think?  I'm ready for some new product from the Annual 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Your first purchase should include the Come Sail Away Suite found on pages 144-146.  There are so many options with this Suite.  It's great for scrapbooking, card making, journaling, you name it.



The next Suite that is another must have is the Bird Ballard Suite located on page 90-92.  This is the time most of us see birds returning to their spring/summer habitats so what a great way to take in nature by using your Blends to color and blend all different shades of birds!

Here's a card I made at Onstage in Quebec City this past April.  It's a super fun card and the Scalloped Lace trim is beautiful.


When placing your orders, don't forget to use the June Hostess code 9KVR7TKS if your order is under $150 in product.  Also, take a look at Perks from Gram and my Rewards Program.  I want YOU to obtain as much free product as you can by participating in my programs.
If you have any questions about the Annual Catalog, Hostess Codes, Perks from Gram/Rewards Program, click here to send me an email.  
I hope you enjoy turning the pages of the new catalog.  Click here to place your order today.
I appreciate your business.

Craft Fair 2019 Series: 5x8 Notebooks

I'm back with Episode 7 in my Craft Fair 2019 Series bringing you another way to add a holder to your paper pads.  In this project, I use a 5x8 note pad which you can find at most office supply or department stores.  I purchase mine in bulk to save money and to keep the costs down.
Here are the dimensions of the paper you will need:
Early Espresso card stock cut 8 1/2 x 10 3/4 scored on the long way at 5 1/4 and 5 1/2.
Use your corner rounder to round all four corners.  Folder at the score lines and use your bone folder and make a nice crease.
Use the pretty paper that you have.  I used Animal Exposition Designer Series Paper cut 5 x 8 1/4.  Round the corners on the right side only.  This piece is added to the front of the notebook.
You will also need another piece of your pretty paper cut 2 x 5 and then scored at 7/8" and 1 1/8".  Use your bone folder to make a nice crease.  Add tear and tape to the back side and then add to the top of your note book to add a nice topper to the note pad.  

Add tear and tape to the back side of your note book (top, middle, and bottom) and then add to your holder.
Cut another piece of Early Espresso cut 2 x 5 and add to the front of your notebook holder.
Add your coordinating paper (Animal Exposition) to the Early Espresso and then add to the center of your notebook holder.
Using the Layering Circle dies, I die cut a piece of Early Espresso with the scallop circle.  I then die cut a stitched circle from Whisper White card stock and then stamped my sentiment from Strong & Beautiful stamp set using Early Espresso ink.
Add three dimensionals to the back side of your sentiment and add to your notebook.
I found a coordinating pen and then packaged up in a clear cello bag sized 6x9.
If you would like to follow along with more detailed instructions, click the video below and head over to my YouTube channel.  Don't forget to subscribe to my channel so you can see other paper crafting projects I have made and also future videos coming your way.


Don't forget to check out the Clearance Rack on my online store so you can save on some pretty paper.  Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! is super pretty to work with and also makes a very attractive gift.

Scrap Card Using Just Because Stamp Set


I started these three cards a few nights ago and finished them up tonight using some scraps from a project I was working on.  I usually have such a hard time coming up with designs so I challenged myself to use what was on my desk.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the image.  Once I had that completed for all three, I used my Blends to color in.  Once I was satisfied with the coloring process, I used my Stitched Rectangles and Laying Circle dies and die cut the images with the Big Shot.


Using up the scraps, I cut them to 3x4 or thereabouts.  I didn't want the card designs to all look the same, so I took the pretty paper and angled them each a little differently.  Once I had the layout, I simply added the focal point to the card front.  The sequins add a nice touch along with the bakers twine.  Did you see the Wink of Stella?  I added it to each of the images.  Love Wink of Stella, don't you?


Even though the Just Because stamp set is/has been retired, I'll still keep it around.  It's a great stamp set to practice using Blends and also to make some quick cards.  


Don't forget about my Paper Share.  Last day to register is May 28, 2019.  I have a few orders and hoping for some additional orders to complete another demonstrator order.  Won't you join in on this fabulous offer?  It's a great way to get a feel of each paper and a look at the new Designer Series Paper coming to you in June.








Check out my May hostess rewards as well.  A great PDF download offer is waiting for YOU!


Happy crafting today! -Karen
