Registration now open for Love It, Chop It!

If you’re like me, you love patterned paper, or DSP (Designer Series Paper):  those beautiful colors, the coordinating stamp sets, the versatile “plain” patterns on the back.  The only problem is actually using it, am I right?

In this Splash of Inkspiration class, we’ll apply “Love It, Chop It!” principles to the beautiful Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper, as seen on page 10-11 of the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog.  (Kylie Bertucci, a demonstrator from Australia, popularized the notion of prepping your DSP so that it is ready to use.)  The secret is the cutting template you’ll be able to use to cut a single sheet of 12” x 12” paper into panels for 12 cards.  That’s right—you can make 144 cards from a typical pack of patterned paper!

Stampin' Up! Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper (#148586)

I’ll cut up two of each of the four Floral Romance patterns using the template.  From those panels you’ll make 12 embellished greeting cards (3 each of 4 designs) with envelopes using the Wonderful Romance stamp set (red rubber Cling Stamps) and Wonderful Floral Framelits.   (The stamps and dies are available to add on to your registration.)  There will be lots of pre-cut leftover panels to use later, packaged in a labeled plastic case.

A Sale-A-Bration surprise!

The Sale-A-Bration party keeps getting better and better with an unexpected third release! Stampin’ Up! just added fabulous Level 1 items to the general Sale-A-Bration offering for you, including the wonderful Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (which was part of a Sale-A-Bration bundle last month and is now available separately). The other items are current catalog offerings, but now you can get them FREE!*

I’m so happy that this wonderful Designer Series Paper is now available for FREE by itself. As part of a bundle, it was terrific, but I just know I will be needing more of this paper, especially since all of our March camp projects will be using it. (And if you’re a patterned paper collector, but have trouble actually using it, come back tomorrow to read about an upcoming class that will help with that!)

*Note that you must use special item codes to get these products FREE during Sale-A-Bration (click to open pdf flyer):

Sale-A-Bration coordination just got easier!

Sale-A-Bration still has one month to go, and the party just heated up!  From March 1-31, you’ll be able to purchase six new products that coordinate with select Sale-A-Bration items:

This is a brilliant idea!  If fussy cutting is not your thing, here are the dies you’ll need to cut out the images — and extra dies for fun elements like the lily pad and flowers for the frogs!  Just remember, Sale-A-Bration Coordination products are offered until March 31 or while supplies last.

A fresh start

Remember when Queen Elizabeth talked about the annus horribilis?  That was 1992, a year of so many problems for the royal family.

That’s kind of the way 2019 has been for me so far, although we’re only two months in to the year and my issues pale by comparison!

Some of you have read (here and in my newsletter) about my blog hosting issues.  I won’t go into the details here, except to say that there were days when I changed the password twice.  (Oh, and if you want to hear my opinion of how GoDaddy handled this, please contact me.) Now, however, on the cusp of a new month, I am back in business here and ready to move on!  Warmer weather (before long), more sunlight, Cubs’ spring training, new classes – life is good again!

I never got to show you one of the January camp projects; this one was my husband’s valentine. Stampers know that frequently the cards we make at camp are ready to be mailed to a recipient as soon as the month’s camps are finished. Or, in this case, ready for the dining room table for our Valentine’s Day breakfast!

Forever Lovely | I typically make a red and black valentine each year for my husband.  This one had a little more zing than usual, thanks to the Lovely Lipstick Foil heart!   Please click to read more! | Stampin' Up! | | Debra Burgin

It seriously disappointed me that the Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets disappeared so quickly from the Sale-A-Bration lineup of freebies. Just when we were getting warmed up!
