You make the world a better place

Debra Burgin 2014 SAS You Make the WorldBefore I lose track of April’s projects, here’s another All-Occasions Stamp-a-Stack card.  I’ll confess that this was the first time my World Map saw ink!  Like many of you, I make far more “girlie” cards than ones appropriate for men.  (To remedy this, Mostly Masculine is my stamp camp theme for May!)  So I buckled down and created this 10-minute card suitable for … anyone!

I wanted to enhance the vintage feel of the map, so it’s stamped in Early Espresso and sponged.  The blue may indicate water and the green may indicate land, but I wouldn’t count on it!  This is a great background stamp, and I’m happy it’s not on the retirement list!  If it’s on another list — your wish list, that is — don’t miss out on this week’s free shipping!  If this is the only thing you order, it’s still free shipping (as long as you don’t expedite the order)!

Stamps:  World Map, Starburst Sayings*

Ink/Color:  Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo, Crumb Cake

Paper:  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede

Other:  Stampin’ Sponges, Big Shot, Arrows Embossing Folder*, Starburst Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Easter tag card

Debra Burgin 1404 Easter TagWhen I first saw the Fringe Scissors in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, I thought of grass on an Easter card — not an original thought by any means!  (I’m sorry to report that so many of us are making grass that the Fringe Scissors are backordered until April 30.)  I took the concept in a different direction by creating a tag, mostly because I am hooked on this Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  It’s not obvious in the photo, but the lower panel uses the printed window sheet from the Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper.  There’s a lot of pattern going on here, but I think all the white makes it work.

Stamps:  Petite Petals*, Beautifully Baroque (p. 113)

Ink/Color: Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder

Paper:  Whisper White, Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper, In Color Designer Paper Stacks (2013-2015), Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder

Other:  Big Shot, Chevron Embossing Folder, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch*, Sponge Dauber, Fringe Scissors*, 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (Pink Pirouette), Extra-Large Oval Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals

More about Project Life

Header_ProjectLife_April1514_ENGYesterday I told you about the partnership between Stampin’ Up! and Becky Higgins’ Project Life line.  Here’s what else Stampin’ Up! has to say about it (details from the Stampin’ Up! blog):

Have you missed the Project Life craze? It’s a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It’s a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

You’ll be able to order a selection of Project Life products starting May 1! And with the launch of our new annual catalog on June 2, you’ll be able to buy from our complete line of Project Life products.

Can’t wait that long? Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be able to order the limited selection starting April 21. So if you’re a demonstrator, make sure to check the demonstrator website that day; if you’re not a demonstrator, sign up and you can order the products early too!

Here are the items you’ll be able to purchase on May 1:

blogimage2_projectlife_april1514_allblogimage2_projectlife_april1514_tableProject Life has loads of possibilities!  If you missed the link above, check out Becky Higgins’s page about Project Life.  I think you’ll be excited, too!

Introducing Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

I am absolutely giddy about this new addition to the Stampin’ Up! line.  I hear stampers all the time — just a few days ago! — sheepishly admit to collecting large amounts of expensive scrapbooking supplies but never finishing anything.  Project Life can fix that!  Watch this video for more information:

Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals — 4/15-21

It’s a bright morning here in north central Illinois — made even brighter because of the 1″ of fluffy snow we received yesterday.  Shortly after it started, I decided the pansies wouldn’t survive the weather and took this picture before I relocated them to the garage.

1404140 Watering canI am thrilled with the new daffies and tulips around the front tree that have bravely fought the wildlife and weather. I hope by Easter everything is showing off for our company.

It was just a year ago this past weekend that we began our house search in earnest, launching a 4-month adventure that was wildly exhilarating and exhausting.  I am happy to free of the consuming house selling and buying details.  And settled into a happy routine — like the Weekly Deals!  Click the picture below for details.
