Got Scraps?

Got Scraps?


If you are reading my blog and you are not a family member, I KNOW you have scraps of designer paper.   I have been on a campaign for the past few years to use up my designer paper.   The struggle is real!   You know you LOVE that piece of DSP and know you will never love another quite as much…so you never use it….saving it for just the right situation…..But that situation never arrises as you discover NEW, better designer paper–and ultimately forget about that “perfect” paper of yesteryear!

Just use it up!!!!!!!

And here is a great way to use up those little “bits” that are cluttering up your desk, as such, cluttering up your life!!!  Who needs a cluttered life?  ESPECIALLY on day 2 of the new year!!  I am here to help with your “De Cluttering” resolution!

Bonus–This will ALSO help with your “Keep in touch with those that really matter AND send out those cards I have been making” resolution!

This SIMPLE card uses a new stamp set called So Very Much that will be FREE during Sale A Bration (starting in just 2 short days!).   It is a sweet greeting set and the font is fresh and LARGE (when you want to send a note but don’t really want to write a lot!).

This card uses Stampin’ Up! Notecards and Envelopes.  You might not be aware we sell these but they are fantastic for a quick little note, come in White or Crumb Cake, AND just require REGULAR postage! 133766s

Here is another sample (from the same pile of scraps, mind you!) with the details.   So easy, so quick!  You’re welcome!


If you haven’t yet received your Sale a Bration catalog and are a customer of mine, please contact me!  If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a Sale A Bration catalog, please contact me and I will set you up!

Thanks for stopping by.  Now get going on those resolutions!!!





Willing Spring!


blog feb .9blog feb .11

Spring is in the air—ok–not really but wouldn’t it be nice if we could will it so!?!   Here is a little inspiratieon for you!  These are samples of more cards that we will be making on Monday night at my Spring Stamp A Stack.  These notecard sized cards come together SO quickly.  They use 2 inks (Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow) and 2 stamp sets–Lotus Blossom (FREE this month with a $50 order) and Gorgeous Grunge–perfect for when things don’t come out quite as clean as you hoped!   You know what I mean (wink!).

Check out my upcoming classes here.  I hope you can make one.

Simple and Quick


That is what this post is going to be–because that is what the cards were!  I made these cards as a sample for a fundraiser thing I was planning featuring the Nature Walk stamp set.  I used the notecards and envelopes (20/pack)for quick and simple cards:

To color in the images, I used the Stampin’ Pastels–I love the soft look they give and the fact they come in all of our Stampin’ Up! colors!  (all for $24.95!).

Finally, I used the quotes from ” Pursuit of Happiness”.  Love that set!
