#imbringingbirthdaysback & it’s a Piece of Cake

Today’s card is one that I made for this month’s birthday cards. I enjoy sending happy mail to my friends and family each month. I know that it’s a great feeling to go to the mail box and get something besides circulars and bills. How about you?

The Piece of Cake stamp set also has a coordinating Cake Builder Punch, but I didn’t use it for this card. Instead I chose to use my Stamparatus since it made stamping this project soooo easy.

Here is a quick video tutorial for you

Storage by Stampin’ Up! Q&A

  • Will old design Stampin’ Pads fit in the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Tray?

No. The Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays are designed to fit our new-design Stampin’ Pads only.

  • How high can I stack storage trays?

We stacked up to 50 storage trays without any issues, BUT we would not recommend stacking that high. While our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are sturdy, the higher you stack them, the less stable they’ll become. Use your discretion when stacking.

  • Can I mount my Storage by Stampin’ Up! products on the wall?

No. Our modular storage products are designed to sit on a table (or similar flat surface).

  • How should I use the Open Storage Cube?

The Open Storage Cube can be used to hold any miscellaneous items like ribbon, embellishments, and small punches. For more inspiration on ways to use items from our Storage by Stampin’ Up! product line, check out the configuration chart we created.

  • Can I mix and match Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?

Yes! Our Storage by Stampin’ Up! products are modular and designed with customization in mind. Take a look at the flyer for more information on the size and dimensions of each item in our new modular storage product line.

  • Do I need a Storage Lid for each 5-tray stack?

No. The Storage Lid covers the top of Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays, Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays, and Open Storage Cubes, so you need only one per storage configuration.

  • How many Stampin’ Ink Refills can I store in the Storage Topper?

You can store up to 20 Stampin’ Ink Refills (or other small items) in the Storage Topper.

  • Are ink pads difficult to remove from Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays?

No. When you insert an ink pad into a storage tray, a small portion of the ink pad will stick out. We designed it this way, so your ink pads will be both secure and easy to access.

  • Can I buy individual Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays and/or Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays?

No. Both of these items include a set of five white plastic trays. Please use the configuration chart to determine how many storage units you need.

  • What material do you use to make Storage by Stampin’ Up! products?

Our modular storage products are made with white, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, which is a lightweight and durable material.

  • How do the silicone feet work?

To protect your surface and prevent slipping, we’ve included peel-and-stick silicone feet with the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays, Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays, and Open Storage Cube.


How do I know what pieces I need?

And how about a printable PDF work sheet that will help you determine what you need to hold your supplies? And configuration ideas.

Fine Print:

  • Inventory Disclaimer: Because Storage by Stampin’ Up! is a brand-new product line, our inventory levels for this initial launch are based on research of similar products and their existing demand. If our inventory of Storage by Stampin’ Up! products is depleted, we will turn items off until their inventories have been replenished. The good news is that our Storage by Stampin’ UP! will be in our 2019 Annual Catalog.

Well Said Thank You

Today’s project is a thank you card that I designed to to go with a small gift as a little thank you for those customers that helped me reach my $100,000 in sales.

I whipped up a quick tutorial so that you can make some too. I used the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper for this project since it coordinated with the note books. I just love the bright, bold, and cheerful colors used in this pack of paper.

Hello Cupcake Birthday Wishes

This past week was my birthday and so today I thought I would share some of the wonderful hand made cards that I received. It’s always nice to receive birthday wishes by snail mail verses face book, don’t you think. I know I enjoy them up on my mantel for weeks.

Since Sale-a-bration is in it’s final count down I thought I’d share this fun pocket card done in Lemon Lime Twist with you first.

Cute right? I love this cup cake and good news you can still earn it during the last 5 days of Sale-a-bration when you place a qualifying order.

This second one is soft and lovely done with the Marbled Background stamp and Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

And how about this card done in a quilt like design using scraps – my fellow stamp has challenged herself to create with her scraps! Love the idea. No surprise since I love quilts too.

And this final card is a thank you I received. It is an oldie but goodie but goodie retired set – dragonflies are always a hit.



That’s it for the day. It’s late since I just got back from the grocery store after a fun day day crafting and working with the NEW March Paper Pumpkin Kit that just arrived. I’ve got a fun alternate project I will be sharing with you soon.

Vibrant Vases & More Team Fun

Here is another group of cards my team made – Team Time is fun time and I’ve got a great group of creative crafters as you can tell from yesterday and today’s projects!

How about the bright and cheerful Vibrant Vases stamp set (148656) used to create this card to start with.

Our 2018 In Color, Lovely Lipstick has been teamed up with our Pool Party Classic Ink to create this colorful vase. Dimension has been added with the Vase Builder Punch (147040) that coordinates with the set. And the 2018-2020 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack (146963) and Dynamic Subtle Embossing Folder (143706) adds interest and texture.

The fun Twisted Card fold has been teamed up with our Abstract Impressions (147513) sentiment which is perfect for this project since Wanda designed it to hold a little pack of flower seeds. And of course the flower image is part of our Beauty Abounds stamp set (148726). One of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog.

And I just love purple, so this fun card made with the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) and the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 149622) is a perfect combination.

Sue made it even more fun by curving the words around the focal point on the inside.

And yes this was done by cutting the sentiment stamp apart. (Gasp! I know, but trust me it’s ok – the photopolymer stamps make this easy to line up on your block when you want it all in one line again.)

And finally this soft and lovely card made with the Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper (146916) and the Painted Glass stamp set (147458/147461).

Happy Tails & More

Today’s projects were all made by my team members for swapping at our March Meeting. Sharing ideas is part of the fun when we gather each month, since we all have different styles of stamping. I love seeing what everyone has been up to crafting.

This first card uses the Happy Tails Bundle (150631) found on page 33 of the Occasions Catalog.

It has a cool fold that when open reveals the sentiment inside. The Classic Garage Designer Series Paper was used for the background and pulls the colors together that are used on the card. And since a lot of us have 4 footed family members this bundle is a great choice.

And this next card uses the Geared Up Garage (148590) and it’s suite of products. So we’ve got tons of products to choose from for the dudes in our lives.

I love the way Shirley used the punched out piece (from the Triple Banner Punch) of the wheel pattern to create the arrow design in the right hand corner. That would have been trash other wise – clever.

And how about this fun card using the So Hoppy Together (Sale-a-bration 149725) stamp set?

I really like the way that Cindy used the Dynamic Corrugated Embossing Folder (148026) to create the latch for the card. And how about those googly eyes? Fun!

And here is the final project for the day – a cute little 3d box that hold a couple of pieces of chocolate made with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (133324).

Do you have your 2017-2019 In Color Reinkers?

Sale-a-bration is winding down and getting those reinkers you didn’t get for your ink 2017-2019 In Color Ink Pads is a great way to build your collection AND get FREE Sale-a-bration items too!

Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Tutorial

Today’s card is a fancy fold. This past month one of my team mates, Sue shared the way you can make this card with the rest of us. I couldn’t resist giving it a try with the Beauty Abounds stamp set and our lovely Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE this month.

Here is what I came up with. There are 4 sides to this card so you have Never Ending options. LOL!

You can earn this Sale-a-bration product when you place a minimum purchase for the supplies I used to make this card, or for that matter and purchases. How great is that?

Here we go

Side one:


two:

three:

and four – which contains the final sentiment piece.

This card is sure to impress!

Want to see how I made it now? I’ve tweaked a few things that Sue showed us since I found it easier for me to put it together this way. So here is my video tutorial for you.

So why not give it a try?

Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Video Tutorial

Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Tutorial PDF

This card can seem pretty complex until you break it down one side at a time – and of course the more you “work it” by opening all four sides in order the easier it gets, since the card will kind of have a “memory” of its movement.

And it’s a special sized card, so it won’t fit in a standard envelope; so you can make your own envelope for it using the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and the Envelope Punch Board (133774). Making it extra special for that special person who receives it!

Just a tip: For a more complicated card like this I like to keep a “pattern” that I’ve made with scratch paper or card stock with the directions – so the next time I want to make one I have a reference to look at too.

Enjoy!

And stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some of the wonderful projects my team members brought to the March meeting to share.
