Monthly Tutorial Coop Coming Soon!

Newsletter subscribers....coming soon...tomorrow sometime....a brand new monthly newsletter with new inspiration for the Tutorial Coop group I below to. I'll have lots of new FREE Project Sheets for you. Our theme for the past month was Christmas cards and this was my card:


It's a Half-Swing Card Fold and I used the stamp set called Stylish Christmas. You can see how the card opens in the photo below:


I hand-cut a few poinsettia's so I could add layer-over-layer and make it come to life.  I also added a large cluster of Red Rhinestone Jewels in the center:

Another Alaska Incentive Gift!

Oh you are so going to love this adorable gift I received from Connie Babbert of Create With Connie & Mary while on the Stampin' Up! Alaska Incentive Trip. As you know, I have been on their design team for many, many years. It was so nice to see Connie in person again this year. She gave me this neatest gift:


It's a cute pocket holder for this pen:


I only noticed when I got home that the holder had an Alaska charm attached to the sentiment layer. Isn't that the neatest?



And I got my hubby to snap a photo of us at one of the Stampin' Up! gatherings on the ship. We got to chat a little before our event started. Connie is on the left:



I have one more gift to show you tomorrow so make sure you come back to visit me. I promise you it's the bomb! Thanks for stopping by today!

Yet Another Alaska Trip Incentive Gift!

Yesterday in my blog post, I told you today's project was going to be the bomb and you'll understand why as you view the photos. See the sentiment on this beautiful tag that adorns the packaging?




This was a gift given to me by Lorri Heiling at our Stampin' Up! Alaska Incentive Trip. I just love how she incorporated elements on the tag to go with our trip. Even adding waves on the tag with our Seaside Embossing Folder. Isn't it neat how Sandy printed a smaller version of the Alaska logo that we used, cut it out with a circle punch and layered it?




And inside the cello packaging is a bath bomb, how cute to coordinate with the tag. I smile very time I see this in my stamp room! I don't want to take the packagin apart! Starting tomorrow, I'll be showing you photos of the events, prizes, products and other highlights of our trip! Stay tuned!

Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!


Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Today our hop is all about I believe I can fly. I created this scenery from the Seize The Day stamp set that includes the cute birds you see flying in the background:


The scenery also includes deer, some funky trees, leaves in the foreground and a watering hole. I used Clear Wink Of Stella to color over the water once I was all done. It looks fabulous and sparkly:


My last photo shows you the birds. I also used the Suble Embossing Folder to add texture to the stamped layer once all of my stamping was completed:


Here is a listing of my layers:

  • Card Base: Basic Black Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: Tranquil Textures Designer Paper 5-1/4" x 4". Wrap Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon around the designer paper and tie into a bow on the very left. Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 4" x 3". Stamp the scenery using Balmy Blue, Soft Sea Faom, Basic Black, Shaded Spruce and Early Espresso Inks. Emboss using the Subtle Embossing Folder. Color the water using Clear Wink Of Stella. Glue to card front at an angle using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using Basic Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Hand-cut close to the lettering. Cut a scallop circle using Whisper White Cardstock and the 1-1/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Stamp the trees and leaf image in the center. Layer over a Basic Black Cardstock circle cut with the 1-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch. Glue the sentiment in the center using Stampin' Dimensionals. Glue to the bottom right on the stamped layer.

Alaska Incentive Trip Gift!

While away in on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska, I had a few friends give me gifts and I am showing you one of those gifts today. I help Rachel Tessman as an administrator on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook Page and look what she handed me on the ship to say "thanks" for helping her run the page:



Isn't this just the neatest set! Here's a side-view of the goodie box:



The box was created using one of our Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes. Rachel cut off the top half and embossed the front with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder. 

What is really neat about the box is that she used a Window Sheet as a stand that fits neatly inside the box. It is "L" shaped by scoring and slides right inside and the ribbons and snail hold it in place. You can see where she glued the rhino image on the top corner of the Window Sheet. 

This photo shows the detail on the very front:



The card she made is called a Free Standing Pop Up Card. Isn't it the cutest?


Side view:


And it folds flat for mailing too!



The stamp set used is the Animal Outing set along with the coordinating Animal Friends Dies.  The color of the cardstock is Call Me Clover. Here's a photo of us together on the ship at one of our gatherings:

Upline Gift While At The Alaska Incentive Trip!

Good Morning Everyone! For today's project, I created a gift bag with removable card for my Upline while in Alaska. There were three of us from the same team and we gathered together for supper during one of our nights on the incentive trip to Alaska and this is what I presented to my Upline:



I used 2 pieces of 12" x 12" designer paper for the gift bag so that it exactly covered a photo frame that I ordered. I wanted to keep the gift bag as close in size to the frame so that it wouldn't get ruined while traveling. I also added a decorative belly-band around the photo frame:



If you look closely at the front of the gift bag, you'll notice that I have a card that slides into a slot on the front so the card can be removed. You can see that I've removed the card here in this photo:



I used the Tufted Embossing Folder as a background for one of the layers on the card. Doesn't it look fabulous with the other layers and elements?




And this is a close-up of the belly-band around the photo frame:


For the open slot portion of the cardstock front, I used a die from the Flourish Dies and made sure not to add any adhesive below the slot so the card can be inserted and removed:



Thanks so much for visiting today and don't forget to use my August Hostess Code when placing your online order. We have quite a few promotions going on for this month and I've added them all here for you:
