Stampin' Up! Leadership Attendees received this DARLING tote bag with goodies inside! I LOVE the fabrics! You will see these cute fabrics again in the future!

we received a coordinating fabric folder! Look who signed every tag - SHELLI!!100_1358
Inside there are three pouches for business "stuff." The tote and folder are soooo sweet and fresh!

My Type

This card was a favorite at my recent Valentine class. Everyone loved the old typewriter and had a story tell about pre-computer days! This creation would be great to give to a guy. I love the First Edition Designer Series background paper that features the "olde type." Its a perfect match for the stamp set "You're My Type."


The Red Glimmer Paper punched with the Heart to Heart Punch adds glitz. I've just returned from Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in San Antonio so keep stopping by for my "BEST of SWAPS!"

"Y" is for You

This is a CHEERY greeting! The words are from my favorite, "Occasions Alphabet" stamp set of 26 greetings. It's unique and versatile. I LOVE the new "Labels Collection" Framelit and the "Fashionable Hearts" Embosslits! Very fast to cut curvy layers with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and these new dies!100_1163
The festive background, petite ribbon and coordinating brad are all FREE items for the Sale-A-Bration Promo, Jan. 24th thru March. It starts TOMORROW!

Fashionable Hearts

I cased this 3X6"card idea from Carrie Gaskin because it is very unique! It features the NEW "Fashionable Hearts" Embosslits Die for the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

I used the embosslit with Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, and Basic Grey. I popped out the hearts and mixed the colors, then re-inserted the images into the coordinating hole. This is sooo chic! Give it a try!


This is a Valentine made in my recent class using "P.S. I Love You" stamp set of 15 images. I love the colors of Basic Grey and Blushing Bride! All products are from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

I love all the textures: satiny pleated ribbon, shiny Rhinestones, metallic Heart trinket, and Fashionable Hearts embossed with the MUST HAVE Big Shot Die Cutting Machine! Time to start your Valentines!

A very happy card!

This card was created by Julie B. of CA, my Inkerbelle Demonstrator sister. It just makes me happy! The base color is the cheerful Calypso Coral. I LOVE the Edgelit Die and matching Adorning Accents Embossing Folder that creates the curved edge!  The fancy floral paper is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item beginning Jan. 24th.100_1202
Julie used the Occasions Mini Catalog stamp set, "Mixed Bunch" with the coordinating "Blossom" Punch! Very quick and showy!



I wish you had SMELL-A-VISION! On this Baby Prints card I used VANILLA Scented Stampin' Emboss Powder over the tiny hand prints. It's a delightful surprise for your nose - my stampin' office smells yummy!!

First stamp your image, then use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig positioner to stamp over that image with Veramark ink. Sprinkle with the CLEAR scented powder and heat. The results are delicious. Available in Vanilla, Melon or Cherry. But all three NOW!

You're My Type

This olde typewriter reminds me of high school typing class - decades ago! "You're My Type" stamp set of seven images has six versatile greetings to choose from.

The First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper is the PERFECT background to pair with this cute stamp set! Make your WISH LIST now for Sale-A-Bration Promo that starts Jan. 24th and gives you a FREE item for EACH $50 you purchase! It's the BEST!!

"Attic Boutique"

Let the Designer Paper do the work for a FAST creation. The lovely "Attic Boutique" Designer Series Paper I used here is in the NEW Occasion Mini Catalog. Click the OMC in the header to view all the exciting new products.

I used a strip of designer paper as a ribbon by pulling it across my bone folder to soften the fibers, then it's easy to softly pleat across Sticky Strip. This card is 3X6 and fits the Open End Envelopes.

Softness - Just Because

This lovely softness was created with "Attic Boutique" Designer Series Paper from the NEW Occasions Mini Catalog. I started out to use up "leftovers" on my desk.

The focal point on this card is the "Scalloped Heart of Hearts" Embosslit Die for the Big Shot. It's such a "must" for your die collection!

This fancy circle focal point is from the Perfect Pennants Die. Another versatile shape! These are great note cards to have on hand!

Sweet Baby Prints

Baby Prints is a SWEET new stamp set of seven images in the exciting Occasions Mini Catalog! Here I used white on white with lots of texture and a touch of Baja Breeze.

LOVE the NEW Pleated Satin Ribbon - so trendy! The ruffle is easy to create with the NEW White Waffle Paper which is very thin and flexible. Attach it with a strip of Sticky stripe, pleating as you go. Want to see more NEW items? Just click Occasions Mini Catalog in the header of this blog. Stop back for more creative tomorrow!
