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

The Play is the Thing

Last week, my youngest performed in his first musical ever, "Mulan, Jr.", in the role of Fa Zhou, Mulan's father.  He did such a fantastic job (proud mom moment)! To celebrate his first show, I wanted to get him something special, but it took me a little while to come up with something.  I finally found the perfect thing, a Jim Shore piece with Mulan and Fa Zhou under a cherry tree.  Unfortunately, the gift was not going to be here in time so I wanted to create a card with a hint of what was to come.  The Colorful Seasons Bundle was perfect to recreate the cherry blossom tree, significant to Mulan and her father.  The sentiment was so appropriate too.  Before each performance, he would say, "I need to breathe."  This stamp set and coordinating die cut are only available in the 10% discounted bundle through the end of this month.  After that, they will only be available for purchase individually.

Here are the details for my card:
Stamps: Colorful Seasons
Ink: Early Espresso, Calypso Coral
Paper: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Calypso Coral
Accessories: Seasonal Layers Framelits

Sweet Little Boxes

Hello all!  I have been away from blogging yet again!  This time was due to an unfortunate event with my computer.  We had an update run on the computer back in January that basically made the entire computer inaccessible.  While almost all my files were recovered, programs loaded on it were not.  I lost Photoshop and cannot find my original file to reinstall.  Well, it is time to upgrade to the latest version anyway.  Anyway, I needed to find a new way to watermark my images.  I have now and can get back to blogging.

This past week, I have been having fun making these sweet little boxes for Teacher Appreciation Week.  This bundle and coordinating paper is so much fun!  These easy to assemble mini pizza boxes boxes can be filled with little treats or mini note cards with our 3x3 envelopes.  What a great way to show appreciation to those that touch our children's lives!

This bundle and coordinating paper from the Tutti-Frutti Suite is among the retiring items so hurry up and get them before they are discontinued!  Anyone ordering the Fruit Basket Bundle with me from now until it is discontinued will receive a free tutorial on making these boxes!

Here are the ingredients:

Stamp Set: Fruit Basket (comes in a bundle with punches)
Paper: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Tutti-Frutti DSP
Ink: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Black Memento
Accessories: Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon, Mini Pizza Boxes, Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack (comes in bundle with stamp set), Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Stitched Shapes Framelits
