Rectangle Coaster Accordion Album

Sister album Good Afternoon,

I made another Rectangle Coaster Accordion Album and the video is available on my Stampin' Academy.  Click here to watch it.  Suppy list is also posted with the video.

I used the Delicate Dots Designer Paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog along with the Jumbo Outline Alphabet and Filigree Brads.

If you looking for the Rectangle Coasters I have them available on my Chic' n Scratch Shack (on the left side bar).

Have a great night and see ya on Sunday!  (I'm going to attempt to clean my office tomorrow…..if you saw it you might pass out.)

p.s. Make sure you check in on Sunday…..although I don't own any of the sets ….the next Mini Catalog starts April 1st….but you can order a few of the Easter sets starting Sunday (March 1st)….and I'll be announcing the March Free Stamp Set.

p.s. Don't you love that Jumbo Outline Alphabet? I can't believe I haven't used it in a while.  Watch out…. I'm thinking ….what can I do next 🙂

Chic Stands update


Update:  Click here to order a Chic Stand

A quick update on the Chic Stands….the shipping has been delayed.  It looks like early April will be the soonest I can get them.  If a miracle happens & they arrive sooner, you’ll be the first to know.  I’m really bummed but I trust that it will all work out for the best. 

Thanks for your emails…I promise the day I get them I’ll post a link and leave it at the top of my blog for a while.

Botanical Blooms

Botancial Blooms Good morning!!

My card today is a totally case (copy & and share everything). When I received my Stampin’ Success magazine this week I knew that I would be making this card. (Stampin’ Success is the monthly magazine that Stampin’ Up! sends to their demonstrators….I usually stalk the mail box the week prior to getting it.)

I used the Botanical Blooms stamp set with the Congrats stamp set and both are in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I will admit I’ve neglected both of them…but I’ll try to show you some more ideas soon.

I made this card for a couple reasons…one because I couldn’t resist…’s so pretty.  But the main reason is for the new girls that have joined my team….this is a perfect example of using your resources. I could have changed the colors….or the stamp set …but instead I copied it exactly :)  Whether you create it or someone else did…..your customers will be happy to make it (especially when you’re just getting started).

Don’t forget if you’d like to join my team….now is the best time.  The Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit is on sale for $169 and you get to choose any FREE stamp set you’d like in addition to the wonderful kit…and don’t forget about my little joining gift.  If you need more info, just let me know.

Thanks for stopping by!

 p.s. I’m headed to the dentist today….I need a crown and a filling & I’m a nervous wreck.  Dave has to take me and I have to take some meds that will hopefully knock me out.  I’ll try to check in mid day tomorrow :)  Wish me luck!!

Quilt Quips

Quilt Quips Good morning!!

 Don’t you love the Quilt Quips stamp set ?  I do & although I don’t have a clue how to quilt….. I love them!  If stamping/paper crafts wasn’t my thing I would totally pick up quilting!!  (I know some of you are saying I could do both….not me I’m the kind of person that does things 100%…could you imagine if I did that with stamping & quilting…yikes!!)

I stamped the butterfly with Stazon ink and then colored it with Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery & Barely Banana with my Aqua Painter.  I cut the image out with my scissors and then used a Stampin’ Dimensional and added it to the Scallop Square.  I pierced the scallops with a Paper Piercer from the Crafters Took Kit & my Chic Stand(still on backorder …but should be arriving soon).

Have a great day!

 p.s. I made today’s card while I was on the phone with my daddy :)  don’t look to closely at the coloring.

Stamps:  Quilt Quips

Ink:  Jet Black Stazon, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery & Barely Banana

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Baja Breeze & Certainly Celery

Other:  Chic Stand, Scallop Square Punch, Crafters Tool Kit, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Aqua Painter & Snail Adhesive.
