Another Little Ladybug Tutorial

It’s time for another card tutorial! I created this little card for my Team Winter Retreat Shoe Box Swap a couple of weeks ago and set it aside to share with you.

Unfortunately, it got buried on my desk. I tend to set things in a safe place so that I can find them later. And then well, can’t. lol, Do you ever have that problem? Well you’re in luck since today I found the card and I’m sharing this project along with some of the other Shoe Box Swaps that I made too.

Here is a quick video tutorial for you and the PDF with a complete supply list.

And here are some of the fun Shoe Box Swaps that I made during the Winter Weekend Retreat. This first card uses three of our lovely Sale-a-bration items the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (152284) and the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (152288) with their coordinating Lily Pad Dies (152315)

This next card uses one of our great masculine choices from the Mini Catalog, Clubhouse (151583) This stamp set is part of our Country Club Suite of Products (153930)

I love how the little tufts of grass and sentiment are placed on the inside panel.

And how about this next card uses products from the Tropical Oasis Suite (153941)? They’ve been teamed up with the free Sale-a-bration Metallic Baker’s Twine & Sequin Pack (152314) that you can earn when you purchase the Timeless Tropical Bundle (153811).

And a fun card uses our Best Dressed Suite (153926), after all who doesn’t love shoes?

And finally this vintage feeling card uses the Very Versailles (149275) and Butterfly Gala (148580) stamp sets found in the Annual Catalog.

Whew. There was a lot of stamping going on during our 8th Annual Winter Weekend Retreat. It’s hard to believe I’ve been holding this event for my team for 8 years already! The time has flown by with a lot of sharing and laughter.

Dressed to Impress Shoe Box Swap Tutorial

As promised today I’ll be sharing the card I designed for the NE GA Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Shoe Box Swap that I hosted last weekend. I really love the way this card turned out. Lovely Lipstick just seemed to be a perfect choice for this card since I was choosing the lipstick image.

I’ve used the coordinating Best Dressed Designer Series Paper stack for this project since I really like the fact it has both lovely floral patterns on one side and then graphic patterns on the other that play off the stamp set images. Great for all kinds of occasions cards this spring.

I’ve put together a video tutorial for you along with my standard PDF with the complete supply list and step by step how to.

Something for Everything Note Card Tutorial

Today’s card was created using the FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set, Thoughtful Blooms and the Something for Everyone set from the December’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. Since the kit contained a sentiment set I thought this image heavy set was a great choice to create a variety of projects with.

Here is the Note Card that I made.

Here is a quick video showing you how I made this card and see how I put it together.

It’s a week of tutorials and today I’ll be starting with a project that uses several of our FREE Sale-a-bration products that coordinate together. When I first saw this Sale-a-bration option I knew it was one I wanted to add to my collection and would reach for over and over again! I shared with you my January #imbringingbirthdaysback birthday card I made earlier HERE.

And since I thought it would be a lot of fun to kick the year off with calendars for my stamping friends here is what I came up with.

I’m still in the process of putting them together, but I wanted to share this with you – so if you’re a customer of mine watch for one coming to your mail box soon!

Can you name the set the sentiment is from without looking?

The “Happy Day” sentiment for this project is from one of my favorite sentiment sets, Itty Bitty Greetings. This set holds 32 greetings that cover all kinds of occasions, so it’s a great value and wonderful to team up with your favorite image sets.

Easel fancy folds are perfect for setting this calendar up on your desk and enjoying it though out the year, and with this Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper it’s like looking at a little piece of art.

Dressed to Impress & My Technique Book

Yesterday I shared a fun card that I made with you inspired by a demonstration at OnStage. (You can see my post HERE sharing videos and PDF for this project.)

Today I wanted to share my Technique Book with you.

When I started stamping I kept every card I made that used a technique so that I could remember how I created it. Not exactly the point of making a card, right? We should be sending them out!

So, this book is designed as a companion to my Classes and Team Training. It uses our Memories & More 6″ x 8″ Album and pages so it allows you to keep a little sample of the technique along with step by step instructions for that technique all in one handy place – So you can reach for them easily! Now I send those cards instead of hanging on to them and you can too!

Here is the Reverse Die Cutting Technique Page and assembly instructions PDF for this project, so you can see how it looks and give it a try.

Reverse Die Cutting Technique Book PDF

Reverse Die Cutting Technique Instructions PDF

I’m BIG on instructions so I include them with every Class I do, whether it is a LIVE event or KIT to GO Class. And with your first Class/and order album and page order I send you a PDF with the cover labels so you can decorate your Technique Album as desired using your favorite technique.

Enjoy!

Stop back by next week when I’ll be sharing my organizational items for the NEW Mini Catalog!

Dressed to Impress Double Point Card Tutorial

Learning new things is always fun and during OnStage in November one of the presenters showed us a Reverse Die Cutting Technique which I couldn’t resist recreating with my team at our OnStage After Party.

This card not only use a fancy fold called the Double Point, it also uses a fun technique with our dies. It was definitely a wow moment at my table that afternoon. And since I know that if I don’t do something right away I’d forget the steps, I whipped up this project quickly.

Not only are you going to love the New Dressed to Impress Bundle with it’s quirky sayings, but it is perfect for this technique with the shoe image.
