Holiday All Day Stamp Camp Fun

All seats were filled at my All Day Holiday Stamp Camp last weekend! Attendees enjoyed learning new special folds, quick & cute holiday cards, gift packaging & tags.

I wanted to share more gifting ideas so each person had an assortment of 3 gift bags filled with goodies (I showed one of them on Friday) setting at their seat when they arrived. Some of the treat bags were filled with products we would be using throughout the day with extras to take home to use to recreate the projects they learned plus more. ( I forgot to take pictures of the seating with the gifts). One held goodies to snack on throughout the day.  I shared that cute & quick treat bag Yesterday.

If you have ever attended one of my All Day Stamp Camps you know that I ask if there is anything you are wanting to learn to do. I try to bring you at least one requested project if possible. Eileen requested to learn how to make a tunnel card while at my last stamp camp so it was our second project of the day. She saw a video that Liz Yuille (an U.K. demonstrator) shared but she was having trouble recreating it.  I taught them some of my tips and tricks on putting this type of card together and gave them ideas on how to use stamps they already owned to make more of these on their own. Eileen said my tips were very helpful and she felt she could now make it on her own.

Here are a few photos of the day.

Here’s Lynndee showing her support for Stampin’ Up! by turning her Dutch Letter into SU!

Have you ever had a Dutch letter pastry? They are WONDERFUL!! They are a light pastry with an almond filling.

These tables are hard at work!

Gift Card holders are always welcome this time of year! I overheard several say they will be making this one again!

Gail is making sure her gift box goes together smoothly.

It was fun to see how adorable all the boxes were with the different Designer Series Papers. They were able to choose their own patterns from the goodie bag they received.

Lynndee is making her tag using the Felt Stitched Shapes that were in another goodie bag. Add some more Designer Series Paper, a silver foil doily and some punched trim and you have an adorable gift tag to add to the gift box they just made.

Lots of laughing and chatting as they decided what they were going to purchase over dessert. Everyone who purchased got to choose a wrapped gift under the ornament tree.

I’d like to give a big Thank You to Peanuts Bar & Grill for letting us spend the day stamping, learning & laughing the day away.

Watch for my next big event, My Weekend Getaway, coming February 2,3 &4!  We’d love to have you join us for some stamping & crafting fun. We even have tables for those who love to scrapbook to join us.

You’re So Sweet Enjoy A Treat, Gift Bag

“You’re So Sweet Enjoy a Treat” is the perfect verse to add to homemade goodies packaging this holiday season. (I use it year round!) This verse is found in the You’re So Sweet Sweet Stamp set (W#138682(C#139440).  I paired it with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set (P#142043) to make these treats for attendees at my Holiday Stamp Camp last weekend.

You enjoyed the assortment of gift packaging we brought you in The Stampers Dozen Blog Hop this month that I thought I would share this quick and cute idea also. Did you miss the post?   You can view it here.

I wanted to give the gals a little treat that they could enjoy as needed throughout the stamp camp, chocolate chip cookies, they’re crunchy and have chocolate!

I filled the bags with the cookies, folded over the top and held it closed with a belly band made from assorted patterns of our Quilted Christmas 6×6 Designer Series Stack.

Next came stamping the gingerbread man in Soft Suede on Whisper White cardstock and punching them out using the coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch (#140396). The tie is punched  from one of the patterns in the same paper Stack. Next I stamped the verse using Garden Green ink and fussy cut around it.

The final touch was coloring the medium and large sizes of Basic Rhinestone Jewels using the new Light Cherry Cobbler Blend. Who doesn’t love a little bling with chocolate??

As you can see, these are another quick & cute gift idea for the upcoming holidays. I will be making some to hand out to neighbors, friends and those that need a little cheer as I am shopping these next few weeks. The ones I hand out to strangers will have assorted pre-packaged goodies in them.

I urge you to take some time to make up some little “gifts of cheer” to give while you are out and about because everyone loves to enjoy a sweet treat!

Gift Packaging for the Holidays, Stampers by the Dozen November Blog Hop

The holidays will be upon us before we know it so we have chosen Gift Packaging for the Holidays for the November Theme in this months’ Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop. I make many home made gifts and I love wrapping them in beautiful hand made packaging to make them extra special, don’t you?


Our Striped Treat Bags (#144255) help make your gift packaging come together quickly while making those smaller gifts feel special. I used Versamark Ink and Gold Embossing powder to emboss the “No Peeking” from our Merry Little Labels stamp set.






I dipped the tips of our Green Sprigs (#144627) into our Embossing Paste (#141979) to look like snow. Add a 1/4 Foil Snowflake, and a bow made from our Red Tinsel Trim (#144636) and you’ve almost got your packaging finished. I attached the foil Snowflake & Green Sprig onto the tag with a staple, the bow with a glue dot & put the gift inside, folded over the top of the bag and clipped the tag on using one of our Gold Library Clips (#144130).





Just imagine these sitting on a table, with greenery and white lights, ready to give to friends as they stop by during the holidays!




How about making the gift everyone wants a little extra special this year? This is a quick Gift Card holder and card in one! You could give a gift card in the simple,plain folder you can get with it at the store but why not make it special? I used the Carols of Christmas stamp set (#144804) and our Be Merry Designer Series Paper (#144111). The colors of ink are Cherry Cobbler & Garden Green with Cherry Cobbler cardstock as the card base.


I will be sharing a video on how to make this holder Tuesday so be sure to come back to see how you can make these and have them ready to fill. I know your friends and family will be in awe when they see all your hand made gift packaging under your tree this year!

Stamparatus, the tool you’ve been waiting for!

Stamparatus, positioning tool

I am happy to let you know that I am one of 2000 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that helped to design the Stamparatus, the tool you’ve been waiting for! As part of the LDL Team, we are sworn not to share anything we work on or hear about. Believe me, it was hard not to be able to tell you about the Stamparatus these past 4 years. Yes, it took 4 years to design & test this amazing positioning tool. We wanted to get it right and to give you the best on the market. I. like you have watched and wanted to get a positioning tool but am so happy I held out, you will ABSOLUTELY LOVE it!! I am loving the unique “hinge stamping” technique you can accomplish on it. Watch the video below to see how you can position 4 different stamps at one time!!!!

Now that you’ve watched the video, leave me a comment below to let me know what you think.

Here is the information on how you can reserve yours so you can be one of the first to use the Stamparatus.

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
  • Customers may participate in multiple reservation windows (order 1 per window).
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
  • Reservation Windows Available to Ship
    November 16–30, 2017 Approx. February 1, 2018
    December 5–30, 2017 Approx. March 19, 2018
    January 15–30, 2018 Approx. April 15, 2018

I will be posting details on how to reserve your on November 15th, the day before the reservation period begins! (It will not work until the 16th)

Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know if you are as excited as I am!

Country Livin’ makes a great masculine themed card, SBTD October Blog Hop

Masculine themed cards seem to be tough for most people and that is why we chose it for our SBTD theme this month. To get your juices flowing I recommend starting with a stamp set like Country Livin’  and then move on to other sets you have. By using more masculine papers you will be amazed at what you will soon be creating!

This is exactly what I did when creating for this months’ blog hop. Country Livin’ has been on my shelf for about 3 months and this is the first time I took it out to play. I needed a masculine card for someone who loves to hunt so I looked through my papers to see what I had. I thought of flannel and bright orange because that is what my father-in-law used to wear when he would go out. Now to find what I have that would fit either of these two criteria. You will find this pattern in the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (#144621) but it isn’t red & black. This is what it looks like,  white & black ( the trend for this holiday season). I wanted to make it look like a flannel shirt so I grabbed my sponge brayer and used it to layer Real Red ink over the paper. What a difference~it even looks like real flannel!!

I paired the flannel look with the truck from the Country Livin’ set. I decided to give my new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers a try to color the image. I colored the entire image and background with them & just love how it turned out! It was so easy to get the effect I was looking for with these new markers. I know exactly what you are thinking, “Where can I find these Stampin’ Blends?” You will be able to order them on November 1st!  If you would like to try to win a whole set of the Stampin’ Blends, head over to my Facebook Page. As a demonstrator I was able to order them early to begin playing with them. 

It is hard to tell from the photo but the sky isn’t solid but looks like it has fluffy clouds throughout it. I finished the card off by taking a black Sharpie marker and coloring 3 small Perfect White Accents. I know the recipient is going to love this card.

Once I got going I couldn’t stop so I made a second masculine card using the Up,Up, & Away stamp set and Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper(#144629), also from the Holiday Catalog. I was thinking of using Night of Navy with the Lemon Lime Twist when starting this card but switched to Basic Black after choosing my Designer Series Paper.

As you can see, once you get going on creating masculine cards it can be quite fun!
