Special Stamping Time

Today, I got some special time with my 5 year old niece while mom and the boys went to a ropes course.  She got to make her own very special Paper Bag Brag book to put pictures in from her summer travels.  It's a surprise for everyone when she gets home, so I can't share it here😊. 

We worked on most of it together but she did some independently, so I had some time to make this card.  I thought it would be great to feature one of the Designer Series Papers from the current Buy 3, Get 1 Free promo.  I fell in love with this whole suite the moment I saw it.  I had to have it!

Check out what you need to make this card:

Stamp Set: Rooted in Nature
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze
Paper: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss; Nature's Poem DSP

Beautiful Layers of Nature

I am so happy to have Photoshop Elements back!  This past winter, my computer crashed with a Windows update and I lost every program I had loaded on my computer, including Photoshop.  I had no idea where the disc to reinstall was, so I've been muddling around editing things on my phone the past few months.  Well, I finally bit the bullet and got the latest version of Photoshop.  It's a bit of a learning curve but I am finding I am able to do much more with it.  Playing around with it, I decided to create a new watermark for my photos (since I lost my old one).  I absolutely love how it came out!

Well, on to the card.  This card was one we made this past spring at On Stage Local, a demonstrator only event.  I hadn't attended one in a while.  Despite being in recovery from a killer migraine the night before, I still managed to have a good time and take home some great ideas!  If you want to attend events like this, consider joining my team.  This month's Stamp Pad Family promotion for new recruits, makes it the perfect time to join!

We made a lot of great samples, but this one was hands down my favorite!  I think the reason I love it so much are the multiple elements of layer.  If you want to recreate this card, use this month's Buy 3, Get 1 free promotion to get the beautiful Nature's Poem DSP.  Here are the other ingredients you'll need to make this card:

Stamps: Rooted in Nature
Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Mint Macaron Calypso Coral, Nature's Poem DSP
Ink: Versamark, Tranquil Tide, Soft Suede
Accessories: Nature's Twine, Nature's Roots Framelits, Leaves Trinkets

Share What You Love Suite

If you missed my All Bundled Up class last month, you missed making these fun cards.  They all use products from the Share What You Love suite.  This is just one of the new suites available in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog.  I absolutely love the Share What You Love Specialty DSP!  It has a beautiful opalescent shimmer to it.  I must give credit to a fellow demonstrator Linda Van Welle-Zwolle for the card in the bottom left corner.  I absolutely loved her design and had to CASE it.  The card in the upper right was one we created at OnStage, a demonstrator only event.  The rest are all my designs.

I will be offering other product based classes throughout this coming year to feature some of the great product in our annual catalog.  If you need help ordering some of these great products, don't hesitate to contact me!

A Magical Day

Every trip to Disney World's Magic Kingdom is a Magical Day.  This page is perfect for featuring that magic!  I think I have a picture of us standing in front of Cinderella's Castle when my oldest was two totally passed out on dad's shoulder.  I might just use that picture for this page.  So magical that it tuckered him out!

This page may look a little complicated but it wasn't really.  The castle is just piecing together lots of rectangles and using a template to make the parapets at the top (this can be something roughly drawn and doesn't need to be perfect).  We used bricks cut out from the an impression made with the brick embossing folder.  An alternative would be to use the bricks mask and embossing paste.  I might try that on a different page at some point.  The flag is made using the tip of the fox's tail in the fox punch.  The windows are made by half punching a rectangle with a circle punch.

I mentioned in a previous post how the Magical Day set is essential for Disney scrapbooking.  I would have just bought it to make that little "Magical" banner, but its uses go far beyond!  You can only get this set for a few more days, so order now!  Inspiration for this page came from the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  This was a fun page to make!

Here are the ingredients:

Stamps: Magical Days (retiring)
Paper: Myths & Magical Specialty DSP (retired), Smoky Slate, Basic Grey, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: 1-3/4" Circle Punch, White Embossing Powder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Magical Mates Framelits (retiring), Fox Builder Punch, Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (retired)

Color Renovation 2018

We are only a week away from a super exciting time in the Stampin' Up! world, our new catalog goes live!  With this we are celebrating a huge Color Renovation, one I have not seen the likes of for about 8 years and I could not be more excited!!!  I showed the colors on my FB page several weeks ago but wanted to have them all here for you to get as excited as me.  Check them out and remember you will be able to start ordering them June 1!

New Colors Never Before Seen:

The new color families with some returning favorites:

Don't worry that you don't see Basic Black, Whisper White, and Very Vanilla.  They now have their own "Basics" category, making room for more colors!

Under the Sea

A trip to Ariel's Grotto couldn't have a better page to feature those perfectly captured moments with the Little Mermaid herself.  Or what about some pics outside the Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid?  Whatever mermaid adventure you choose, the Magical Days stamp set and coordinating Magical Mates Framelits has the perfect stamps to highlight your adventure!  This set is my "Go To" Disney stamp set and it is only available for a few more days!  Be sure you pick up your bundle by shopping my online store.  Watch my blog for more Disney pages using this set in the coming days!  Sadly, the paper that coordinates with this set has been depleted, but you can easily use the stamps in this set to create your own Designer Series Paper.  

I was also able to put to use the new Make a Difference stamp set, currently available in an exclusive bundle and soon to be available on its own in the upcoming annual catalog, to create the title.  The Pear Pizzazz area by the mermaid is perfect for journaling and the page accommodates 3 square pictures.

Here are the ingredients:
Stamps: Magical Days (retiring), Seaside Shore (retiring), Make a Difference
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Whisper White, Myths & Magic Specialty DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Magical Mates Framelits (retiring), Cajun Craze Marker, Powder Pink Marker, Dark/Light Pool Party Blends, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tutti-Frutti Sequins

It's All About the Mouse

This past weekend, I held my first "Scrapbook Your Disney Vacation" class.  We made four pages which I will share over the next few posts.  This one was one of my favorites and has spots for 4 of your favorite pics...maybe some one-on-one time with the "Big Cheese"?

I love how you can use the die cuts from "Swirly Scribbles" to make the Mickey image!  Basic Black, Real Red and Daffodil Delight are the perfect color combo for any Disney themed page!

Here is what was used (note some paper has already run out and is discontinued, but the upcoming catalog has some great alternative options!):

Stamps: Colorful Seasons, Happy Birthday Gorgeous
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Whisper White, Basic Black, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (balloons), Tutti-Frutti DSP, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP
Accessories: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Lots of Love Framelits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Balloon Bouquet Punch
