Sprinkles of Life & More

Are you ready for the NEW Stampin’ Up! 2015-2016 Annual Catalog that kicks off tomorrow? Are you ready to see some of the new products? Well check out these two cards I made using the NEW 2015 In Colors – I think you’re going to love them!

Sprinkles of Life (139971) is our 2015 Ronald McDonald House stamp set. What is great about that? Well for each stamp set you purchase Stampin’ Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House AND you get this great set!

Sprinkles of Life

Can you see the dimension to the ice cream cone? Well that was created using the NEW Tree Builder Punch (139971) that coordinates with the Sprinkles of Life stamp set. Cool right? And who doesn’t love a punch! The Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper (137783) add a touch of interest too and will be gone after tomorrow.

I’ve used three of the five new 2015 – 2017 In Colors on this card – Cucumber Crush , Watermelon Wonder, and Tip Top Taupe. Oh, how I love saying that last color…. it’s just fun to say. Try it … Tip Top Taupe, it just rolls off the tongue! And I think you’ll fall in love with the warm brown too when you see it just like I’ve have.

Want to see more? Well my next card has a totally different look and it uses the soft Mint Macron from the 2015 In Color Collection. I think this color will be great for creating a vintage look.

Buterfly Basics Feel Goods

I’ve used the new Mint Macron Dotted Lace Trim (138428) and the fantastic 2015 In Color Blossom Accents (138383) along with some pearls and the Typeset Specialty Paper (133704) to create this card. And I think the sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set (129681/131916) makes this a great card for a any young lady who is graduating this month.

Great news – You can see these and a lot of other fantastic new products tomorrow for the first time in my Online Store. Want a catalog of your own? Why not place an order with me and I’ll include one in your order for you!

Leadership Survival Kit

Part of the fun of going to a Stampin’ Up! event is the fellowship with your friends and fellow demonstrators. Who’s kidding that’s a big part of it! And I love creating up a little gift for my roomie.

Here is what I came up with….. or at least the gift bag!

Leadership 2015 Survival  gift bag

I call it my Leadership Survival Kit – you know how when you travel, it’s always the little things that you forget or are a blessing to have on hand. Want to know what is inside?

First a name tag for our bag. With 1,500 of the same Stampin’ Up! Leadership bag at the Orlando Convention Center it is always good to be able to tell which one is yours!!!

Leadership 2015 name tags

I used this stamp set Feel Goods (131916/130538) since I thought the sentiment was perfect for this occasion. It’s my roomie’s first time qualifying for  Manager’s Reception – which is a big deal since Stampin’ Up! is taking over the Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the evening. What fun, right?

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit - wet wipes

A little package of mini wet wipes. I found them at Target a while back and thought they’d be great for inky fingers – or anything else we get into!

And a little pack of Kleenex for her new Leadership bag –

A little note pad –

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit - purse notepad

Don’t you love the button? It’s part of the Artisan Embellishment Kit (137909) found on page 27 of the Occasions Catalog. The photo doesn’t show just how beautiful it is!

Leadership 2015 Survival kit post it, pen and binder clip

And of course you need a pen and post it notes – I couldn’t resist adding this little binder clip for keeping the paperwork we get together.

Leadership 2015 Survival kit tic tacs and lip gloss

Never hurts to have a package of tic tacs and chap stick on hand. The Convention Center air gets pretty dry. And of course, chocolate – just because she might need a bit of energy.  Kathleen and I tend to be night owls! LOL

Here is the set

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit

Of course I’m sure you recognized the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper (137779) that I’ve used for the little purse and other projects. Isn’t it great that the one side is a neutral all occasions pattern?

And since I was having so much fun making this Survival Kit – I made this little note pad for my self too. I love the soft colors in the Sale-a-bration Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper – I love that you can earn the coordinating ribbon and button pack too.  I’ve used a bit of the ribbon here along with the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set (137136).

Leadership 2015 note pad and pen

Can you tell I embossed the sentiment using our Calypso Coral Embossing Powder (133752)? And isn’t the Pompom Trim (137898) fun? I’ll be taking notes in style LOL!

Feel Goods

The Best things in life…. This sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set is one of my favorites and I love the font that this sentiment set uses. How about you?

Feel Goods Clothes Pin

Today’s project is one that I received from my friend Cindy during our TEAM event last week. Cindy is always coming up with the cutest 3-ds for her swap.

As she told me the story about how she ran across these big paper clips and bought them because she thought they looked like Bermuda Bay, but then realized they were really Tempting Turquoise when she got them home.  She reminded me of one of the items I like to keep with me when I was shopping, my color ring. Hmmm maybe this would be something you would enjoy too?

Any way, although the color wasn’t what she originally thought it was, she has made her project work beautifully with the Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper that she used. Don’t you think?

Whether the color was Bermuda Bay or not when I look at my giant paper clip sitting on my desk it makes me feel, well… good! The bright and cheerful butterflies are just fun – don’t you think?

Sycamore Street

I love the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration and so I thought I would show the note pads that my friend Cindy brought to our last Team Meeting for her swap.

Feel Goods Clipboards Cindys  March swap

Don’t you love the sentiment set that she used to stamp on the note pads? Feel Goods (item 129681/129684) is well named since when I see or use these sentiments I just feel – well good.

And here are a couple of cards from my Leadership swaps that also use the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. This first one uses the Henry Says stamp set (item 128090/128093) from the Spring Catalog.

Henry Says Leadership 2013Shoebox Swap Andi Potler (2)

And this last card uses the Oh, Hello stamp set (item 130730/130733) and one of my favorite accessories, the Paper Doilies (item 129399).

NEW Adding Color Paper Doilies Video

Feel Goods

Do you love the Paper Doilies (item 129399) in the Spring Catalog like I do? I think they are a lot of fun to work with and since you get 24 in a package you can do so many things with them. When I saw the Paper Doilies in the Spring Catalog they quickly caught my attention since they reminded me of my Grandma who was always crocheting. Do you remember those doilies that were always on the arms of the furniture and under things on tables growing up? Oops maybe I’m dating myself….
