2017 Holiday Catalog Goes Live Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the big day! Many Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators have been busy on YouTube sharing bits and pieces of the new Holiday Catalog. I chose not to tease about it, because you couldn’t see it for yourself until Friday, September 1, 2017. But, now it is so close — I’d like to share some of the exciting new products I picked up during the pre-launch. I must say I love so very much that is in this new catalog. There are many items I passed, because I couldn’t get it all. I do buy what I like and...

I’m Thinking Fall

We’re experiencing a heat wave this week so I’d like to think about fall with cooler temperatures with that little nip in the air. For many, fall is about harvest. I love getting fresh fruits and vegetables — and the pumpkins . . . It is a fun adventure in the fall to go out and even catch a ride on a hay wagon . . . Enough nostalgia and lets get thinking about fall cards we can make and share with family and friends. I do like the fall leaves and baskets of fruits and vegetables . ....

Punches Have Multiple Uses

It’s nice to have someone think outside the box for you. I was watching a YouTube Video showing how to use the Stampin’ Up!® Classic Label Punch to make a fence.

This got me thinking about a popsicle stick sled I saw on Pinterest. These make lovely ornaments, but you could do the same with paper — you may need to punch out more labels, but you...

Is Paper Crafting A Lifestyle?

This may seem a silly question, but I’m wondering . . . I’m thinking it is a lifestyle. I’ve known people who have a whole section of their home as a craft room. This is where they store all their craft tools, papers, stamps, dies, die cutting machines, ink, punches, etc. They create in this room exclusively and also have it set up for recording video tutorials. This is what they do each and every day — or a place they come to create and unwind after work. This is great and wonderful for them. It may have been...

Halloween Is Coming!!

It’s unbelievable so many crafters are into their 12 weeks of Halloween!! I’m a few weeks behind schedule with this. I’m not going to do anything until September 1, 2017, when the new Holiday Catalog goes public. There are quite a few fun Halloween projects in that catalog, but I could do a Halloween treat box from the Home Sweet Home stamps and dies sets. These are fun and easy to do. I may do a few of these and have them available to give to neighbors. We have a few elderly folks who seem to be alone and...
