Maritime Designer Series Paper Fun Fold Card

Nautical X Fold Card Tutorial Video at Stampinfool.com

 

Have you seen the Maritime Designer Series Paper?  It’s not new news.  In fact, I’ve had it since June of last year (2014), but I just haven’t had a chance to use it all up.  But, I LOVE IT.  It is nautical and fun.

I am trying to use up all of the Designer Series paper I have to make room for NEW items from the upcoming 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  So, with that said, for the rest of this month, you will see projects with great ways to make use of your favorite DSP as well as sneak peeks of the NEW products that will be available June 2, 2015!

Here is the video to show you how to make this sweet X Fold Card.  Enjoy!

Teach Me Tuesday: Friends Who Know

Teach Me Tuesday:  Friends Who Know video tutorial at StampinFool.com

Good Morning Crafties!  It’s Teach Me Tuesday where I’ll be showing you how to make the cute card I’m sharing.  Below is a video with instructions and I’ll walk you through it in under 10 minutes.  I’ll give you a supply list as well so that you can order the stamps and ink needed to make this beauty!

Before we get into the card and video, I have a little housekeeping to do.  It’s that time of the year- the RETIRING LIST is coming out soon.  Soon as in April 21, 2o15– that’s right around the corner- next week in fact.  I don’t want you to miss out on the things you love, but we know how quickly things go.  Sometimes they sell out at midnight.  People sit online waiting for the list to go live, and order bulk of card stock, ink, reinkers and stamps.  Let’s talk about it- we know the In Colors 2013-2015 are going.  Order them now, because on April 21st they will be gone- all gone.  It happens every year and I don’t want you to miss out!
Other things that may go (I say may, because I have not seen the list either, but these are educated guesses as to the things that typically make the list):

  • Card kits
  • 2013 In Color embellishments
  • 2013 In Color ribbon
  • 2013 In Color card stock & markers & ink
  • All Designer Series Paper
  • Some embossing folders
  • Some dies and framelits
  • Punches
  • Project Life cards?
  • Stamps…

I will be sending out an email as early as I can on the 21st with the list.  Make sure you review it and order the things you love early so they don’t sell out.  If you love the In Color collection from 2013, I suggest you order those things now, as they will sell out immediately.  Happy shopping!

I LOVE the Friends Who Know stamp set.  There are so many things to love about it.  I love that it looks like a blackboard, that it’s scripty and hand drawn; I love the doodles around it.  I love that it’s a Label Framelit shape- the shape is beautiful!  I love the size- perfect for a card front. I love that the framelit matches perfectly.  I love that it only comes in wood mount. I am a photopolymer girl all the way, but man I love this wood stamp.  It stamps so cleanly and inks up so well.  I love that it says, “We’ll Be Friends Forever because you already know too Much”.  It is so true.  It brings up hundreds of memories that I have with my best friends that I hope I will always remember (or hope to forget some of them!).  Times that we will laugh about for years, inside jokes, and even things we will keep between us forever.  It makes me think of all of the special times we had together, the fun activities that filled our years, and how much I love my besties.  It literally brings a smile to my face, and I hope that it will bring a smile to their faces when they open it.  I am absolutely mailing these out to my gals to let them know how much I love them.  (Actually, they already went out in the mail! So excited!)

THIS. CARD.  I just love the bright colors and how well Melon Mambo pairs with Bermuda Bay.  it is the perfect friend card.  I love everything about it. Get ready to make it too!

Stampin’ Up! Guy Greetings Shaker Card

Guy Greetings Shaker Card video tutorial at Stampin Fool

Today I have another video tutorial for you. I have been busy crafting and making videos to help show you some of the awesome projects I have been making. I definitely learn things easier when I watch them being done or see a video.
Let me first tell you about my video fiasco.  The video in the About Me page of my blog was done from my Mac.  I was sitting at my desk and quickly filmed it (after 3 outtakes).  That works great for filming me talking, but not so well for over the desk crafting videos.  So, I buy an attachment for my tripod to hold my Canon T3i DSLR camera over my desk to video.  It doesn’t clamp properly so I rig it with a wood block from an old stamp.  It works good for 1 video.  Then comes Silas.  Silas, the two year old tornado, rips through my crafting office, snaps the tripod attachment, tripod fittings, and drops the camera.  Luckily, the camera survived without any damage, but the other bits are toast.

No worries, Amazon is amazing and I was able to to order a table mounted phone holder that works just as well for video, I can video my craft desk and myself.  I upload directly to YouTube and then you get to view my videos here!

Alright, on to the fun part.  I have a shaker card to show you.  Get out your Guy Greetings stamp set and your favorite washi tape, grab some popcorn and let’s get started.

TWO DAYS LEFT FOR FREE STAMPS

Sale-A-Bration is almost over.  You have today and tomorrow to earn free products- stamps, paper, ribbon!

Saturday, I held a Stamping at Starbucks event that was great.  We had a wonderful time stamping, chatting, making new friends at Starbucks, and of course enjoying the new Birthday Cake Frappuccino.  It was delicious- very sweet, but a nice treat.

I want to share on of the Easter projects that we made. With Easter around the corner, I wanted to make something that really helped us remember why we remember Easter and why it is important.

I chose the Blessed By God stamp set because the sentiment was perfect for Easter.  A friend loves at all times- God loves us always, unconditionally, and we should too love others at all times.  It is part of being a good neighbor to those who are difficult to love.  Even though we are not capable to unconditional love like God, we should be focusing on loving friends, enemies and neighbors throughout our daily life.
