Stampin’ Up! New Weekly Deals for April 8-14

Weekly Deal April 8 2014

Here are the new Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up! for the week of April 8 – 14. If I didn’t already have them, I would grab the Punch Pack, a set of little punches that are oh so handy for various things. The one punch has a little scalloped edge circle that is great for using as the center of flowers. You could really use any of them for that or even use just the punch itself as an itty bitty flower.

Here is a card I made last year using the Itty Bitty Scallop Punch in the Punch Pack.

Itty Bitty Punch Pack Easter Cross

Be sure to check out all the Weekly Deals! If you already have the Secret Garden stamp set, now’s the time to get the coordinating Secret Garden Framelits. And of course who doesn’t want more Baker’s Twine and ribbon?

Just go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store to shop today!

It’s April Fool’s Day….I Thought This Was an April Fool’s Joke!

Fine Print Greeting Cards Templates

Happy April Fools Day!  Happy April 1st! It wasn’t like I could think of an April Fools joke myself to put on my blog (at least not yet!), but then I saw Stampin’ Up! had the new Weekly Deals up as well as the new My Digital Studio Downloads as they do every Tuesday. There are only two new MDS downloads. When I saw the download pictured above, I thought, Stampin’ Up! came up with their own April Fools joke with this silly stamp set. But it’s real, and you obviously have to read the FINE PRINT! Click on the image above to go to the store page – and then click on the magnifying glass – and THEN click on the arrow to the side to click through each image so you can read the FINE PRINT!

Fine Print Close-up

Maybe these aren’t your type of greetings for your friends – but then again, maybe they are! The description says:

 Have fun on April Fool’s Day or any day with these quirky cards,
just don’t forget to “read the fine print” 

And here is the other CUTE My Digital Studio download for this week!

About the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine

Texture Boutique Embossing Machine

This handy-dandy Texture Boutique Embossing Machine has been having a few problems (in some cases), so of course Stampin’ Up! is working on solving those problems. Some people have had a problem getting a good embossed image with this machine, so Stampin’ Up! is working with the manufacturer to fix this issue. It does come with a shim, which you should be using if you do own the machine. This machine was planned to be introduced in the next new Stampin’ Up! Catalog, but since a certain number were ready early, Stampin’ Up! had an early launch after Leadership.

Stampin’ Up! will turn off the item code on March 8 so it will no longer be available to order until the new catalog is released while they work with the manufacturer on a permanent fix. If you are getting good embossing, then of course go ahead and use your machine. Or you might find that the less detailed embossing folders work just fine in your machine. I’ll keep you posted of any new developments.

Don’t forget about the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals!  Today is the last day for this group! Just click on the picture to go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store for more information on these deals!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Feb 25 2014

These Weekly Deals and any other current Stampin’ Up! products count toward Sale-A-Bration, so be sure you order at least $50 to earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration Product!  We are already in the last month of Sale-A-Bration!  Can you believe it is March?!!

Save Money on Stampin’ Up! Products

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Feb 25 2014

Save a little money on some Stampin’ Up! products this week in the new Weekly Deal! Every Tuesday Stampin’ Up! has been offering several products at a discount.  This special is good until the following Monday night.  Add these items to your order and when you reach $50 you can ALSO take advantage of Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration and choose a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure!

Here are some tips for these products!

  • The Backyard Basics Framelits Dies coordinate, of course, with the Backyard Basics Stamp Set, available in wood- or clear-mount. There is also a Bundle, too, if you prefer which includes the stamp set and framelits.
  • You might like to use Clear Embossing Powder with the Gold Metallic Encore Pad. You can use the ink without being embossed but if you touch the stamped image you might get a dab of ink on your finger, although the image itself doesn’t smear.
  • The Paper Doily Sizzlits Die is beautiful but a little more labor intensive, sometimes. Sometimes it depends on the amount of pressure exerted in your own Big Shot. It may help to place a piece of wax paper on the die and then the card stock which helps the pieces come out. Or just use your Paper Piercing Tool or something sharp to poke out the little pieces. But sometimes they don’t even all have to be poked out because sometimes/usually you are covering part of the doily with some other element. But it is a beautiful die and can add a lot to your project!

Also, today:  New My Digital Studio Downloads for February 25, 2014

MDS Downloads Feb 25 2014

I’m excited to see the Word Bubbles Punches and the Just Sayin’ Digital Stamp Brush Set included!  Click the link above to see all the downloads for this week.

Check out all these products and more at my Stampin’ Up! Online Store!

If you like a craft project with no muss, no fuss, easy and quick to do, and a surprise in your mailbox about mid-month, Paper Pumpkin is for you! When you first sign up, you receive the Welcome Kit pictured at the top of this page. This kit makes four cards and comes with stamps, ink, the materials you need plus a free Clear Block to mount your stamps and to use in subsequent kits. All you need to provide is adhesive. Use the ones you have already at home or I can suggest some quality ones from Stampin’ Up!  After the Welcome Kit you will begin receiving the same kit all the subscribers receive.

No risk, no obligation!  Sign up and cancel your subscription in a few months if you need to. Better to just “pause” your subscription (yes, you can do that!) so that you can continue on when you are ready.

The cost for Paper Pumpkin is only $19.95 per month, which includes shipping! Stampin’ Up! has even IMPROVED the kits since January! In fact, our January kit even came with an extra surprise in it! If you like to get mail like I do and if you like a surprise just for you, you’ll like Paper Pumpkin.  You can even order more than one kit if you have a friend, daughter, mother, niece, son, someone special you would like to craft with or treat.  Change quantities every month! Or better yet, have your friend sign up for her own subscription by tomorrow and you each get the free markers! The magic date to make ANY changes in your subscription is always the 10th of the month!

Here are photos of a couple of the projects I have received in my kits. You can follow the supplied instructions exactly or break out on your own and do your own thing!  Whatever you want!  It’s YOUR kit!

I’ve made many tea bag holders similar to this one over the years and I always think they are the cutest things! It’s such an extra special way to send a greeting to someone with a card, write a little personal note inside and give them one of your favorite teas!

Here are the basic measurements and then you can layer it up, decorate it, embellish however you like!

  • Cut a piece of card stock 3 1/2″ x 11″
  • Score at 3 1/2″, 7″, and 7 1/2″.
  • Fold on score lines.
  • On the third section on the right, cut on a diagonal to form the triangle to hold the tea bag. Adhere to bottom with Sticky Strip.
  • Cut ribbon about 24″ long to wrap around tea bag holder.  Adhere in a few spots.
  • Decorate the tea bag holder your way!

If you have a favorite tea, leave a comment below.

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Just Gets Better!

Stampin' Up! My Paper PumpkinOne of the many fun things at Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2014 was visiting the Paper Pumpkin booth. Paper Pumpkin is the monthly subscription program from Stampin’ Up! Sign up and every month (unless you “pause” or cancel) you will receive the cutest red box with a papercrafting project inside. And it’s not always a card either! Everything you need except adhesive will be included. The idea is for you to take thirty minutes or less to sit down and enjoy an easy to make craft project! And who shouldn’t take at least that long to do something good for themselves!

In the booth they had samples posted of the past Paper Pumpkin kits and facts and information about the subscription program. But the best part of the booth was the Sneak Peek!  Literally, we could go “behind the curtain” and check out the upcoming Paper Pumpkin Kits!  Let’s just say you probably want to get your name on that subscription list! The first kit a new subscriber will receive is the Welcome Kit that comes with a clear block you will need for your stamps in the following kits! After that you will receive the same kits as everyone else.

Paper Pumpkin Leadership Incentive

AND – the best part for YOU is that if you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by February 10, you will get a Free set of 2012-14 In Color Markers. You can see them HERE. Do it right away so you won’t forget! If you need help, please let me know.

You are not charged for Paper Pumpkin until it ships.  Once it ships, you get a cute little email saying it is on it’s way! See the Welcome Kit HERE.

Click on this link to sign up:   Paper Pumpkin

Everyone who signs up with me as their Demonstrator gets a special Paper Pumpkin thank you card from me! Do it now!  It will be your fun treat every month!

The other fun thing about the Paper Pumpkin booth was the Craft War!  We could use any of the stamps from the past Paper Pumpkin kits plus new paper and accessories from the Occasions Catalog to make a card for a contest!  They chose 20 winners.  Here is my card!

Paper Pumpkin Craft Wars Card

I wasn’t one of the 20 winners!  (Obviously my card came in 21st probably! ) No, I’m sure with all the talent at the Leadership Conference there were better cards created than mine! I hope they will publish all the cards at some point so I can see what everyone made.  It was so fun!

If you were a previous subscriber and want to sign up again, you will need a new email to set up a new account in order to get the markers.  It is for completely new subscribers only. However, you will receive the Welcome Kit again as well. If you have subscribed before and use the same email, you will receive the new kits, but no markers.  Questions?

Go ahead, take the plunge.  Sign up for Paper Pumpkin right now!  You deserve it! (And you get FREE markers!  Who wouldn’t want FREE Stampin’ Up! Markers?!)

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Dec 3

Click to Shop

It’s Tuesday so it’s a new Weekly Deal from Stampin’ Up! What jumps out at me?  The Hearts Collection Framelits Dies!!  We may be totally focused on Christmas right now, but you know Valentine’s Day will be “up next” after New Years. Go ahead and get some Hearts Framelits now on sale so you’ll be ready to cut those Valentines in February!

Of course don’t miss ANY punch and Scallop Circle Punches are always fun! And how many Fun Flowers have we made out of paper and fabric? The Fun Flowers Bigz L Die is great to have. Make some beautiful fabric flower pins and sell them! Merry Minis Punch Pack – I certainly love the little star! And the little ornament shape and tree are perfect for your cards right now! The Paper Doily Sizzlits Die is gorgeous to make although it takes a little patience sometimes to perhaps poke out the little pieces! But sometimes you cover part of it with another layer and don’t need to punch out all the pieces! It’s beautiful to have in your collection. Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon - kind of like punches, you might as well have it! The Chevron ribbon in the different colors is beautiful and great to use. And for you My Digital Studio fans, another download, especially on sale, is always welcome – Think Back Photobook TemplatesThis download has questions to ask parents, grandparents, anyone, to find out about their life and get the memories flowing so that they can be recorded for your family history. I can’t tell you how valuable and treasured this information will be to you when your loved ones are no longer with you.

If you don’t have My Digital Studio, you can do a 30-Day Free Trial OR you can go ahead and purchase the My Digital Studio Software because it is only $19.95. It really is quite a deal.  You get the software plus a TON of content to use in your projects.  And it’s not just about digital scrapbooking AT ALL! Make cards, invitations, home decor, photobooks, framed art and more!
