Quilting with paper.

It’s Tutorial Thursday!  Since last night’s Live was about the sale and I didn’t create, I made something new this morning.  I “quilted” a card for you.  I used the Tailored Punch, Cookie Cutter Stamp Set with punch, and the Classic Label Punch.  Pick any Christmas paper (here I used the Dashing Along Designer SeriesContinue reading “Quilting with paper.”

Tons of Discounts!

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!  Instead of a single product today I figured we would focus on a bunch.  I think Stampin’ Up! may have lost its mind since there are three full pages of discounts for this year-end closeout.  I know we normally don’tContinue reading “Tons of Discounts!”

Cutting for effect.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  You can mask a project but sometimes the lines get blurred or just don’t come out as clean and crisp as you would like them.  Instead of trying to mask, just cut.  If you cut your card stock before stamping you are guaranteed a clean edge.  You will need a scrap ofContinue reading “Cutting for effect.”

There is lots going on this week.

It’s Management Monday!  There is quite a bit going on this week so I think I will list it out for you. Monday — There is open time at the studio.  Remember that the times have changed.  It is still 10:30-12:30 am but the evening session changed.  The evening is now 5:30-7:30. Tuesday — CardContinue reading “There is lots going on this week.”

So grateful to be still.

It’s Sabbath Sunday!  In the last few days Joel (hubbie) and I have had some pretty big events. Joel coordinated the first ever Tuba Christmas for our area.  There were about 20 players, merchandise, registration, spectators, and volunteers.  It was a great night for music with perfect weather (55 degrees and virtually no wind).  CongratulationsContinue reading “So grateful to be still.”

Year-End Closeout

It’s Sale Saturday!  So it wouldn’t be with the theme of today to not talk about the next sale.  Yes, the next one.  Yes, we just finished one. Thank you for all that participated in the Extravaganza Sale. Now I am waiting to get more information on what is being carried over from the HolidayContinue reading “Year-End Closeout”

Knowledge is power.

It’s Friendship Friday!  This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  I firmly believe that in order to give back we need to have knowledge which turns to wisdom.  I continuously read to keep myself on top of what is going on. Recently I came across an interesting article inContinue reading “Knowledge is power.”

Three textured cards.

It’s Tutorial Thursday!  Today I have three cards for you.  They are all done with the same products but in different ways. The first card was done by running the white mat through the embossing folder and then laying the accent pieces over top. The second card was done by gluing the accent pieces beforeContinue reading “Three textured cards.”

When paper is used as ribbon.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!  Today I am talking about ribbon and paper.  Did you know they are interchangeable? When you run out of ribbon, or simply didn’t purchase any, then go to your Designer Series Paper stash.  Most of our papers are double-sided whichContinue reading “When paper is used as ribbon.”

A splash of color to bring out the detail.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  Our embossing folders add so much to the card with texture and depth.  Sometimes there is still a little bit more that is needed.  If you don’t have ribbon then use our Designer Series Paper.  Most of the papers are double-sided allowing you to cut a mat and then accent with theContinue reading “A splash of color to bring out the detail.”
