Something BIG is happening starting NOW!

Happy July, Crafty Friends!  It's the beginning of a NEW month---and Stampin' Up! has brought back their BONUS DAYS!  (Cue Cheers & Applause!)

Last year, Bonus Days were so wildly successful, that they decided to bring them back this year and I am so excited to share that with you!  Here's how it works:  Every $50 you spend July 1-31, you earn a $5 Bonus Coupon to be redeemed on anything during the month of August!  Wow!

Bonus Days

Oh!  And here's the best part: there is no limit to the number of Bonus Coupons you can earn and you still qualify for Stampin' Rewards, if applicable!  Double Wow!

Excitedly enough, one of my favorite stamp sets and matching Framelit dies (when purchased together) is $60!  That's enough to earn you a $5 Bonus Coupon for August!  What set is this, you may ask?  Why, it's the Jar of Love Stamp Set and the matching Everyday Jars Framelits Dies.

This stamp set is simply gorgeous!  And it's so versatile!  (Stampin' Up! does this with almost all of their sets on purpose *wink*)  Also, this set is one of Stampin' Up!'s 2-Step Stamping Sets (which means you get to layer stamps to create a beautifully detailed stamped image) and so therefore, it's one of our entirely transparent, photopolymer stamp sets (it makes this 2-Step Stamping a breeze!)

The other thing I love about this set is that the Framelits Dies make Shaker Cards!  Shaker Cards have been wildly popular and I just adore making them!  I make them maybe too much!  (Is there such a thing?!)

To show you just how perfect this stamp set and matching die set is, I made you this:

I adore the soft colors, the fun shaker element, and the sentiment "Throw kindness around like confetti"... Heart. Melted.

Shall we get started on how to make this card?  All right, let's do it!

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock (8-1/2"x5-1/2"; scored at 4-1/4")
  • Coffee Break DSP in Soft Sky Chevron (4"x5-1/4")
  • Whisper White Cardstock (3"x4")
  • Pool Party Cardstock (3/4"x3-3/4")
  • Let's get the easiest parts out of the way, first.  Adhere your Coffee Break DSP piece to the front of your card base (Crumb Cake Cardstock).  
  • Stamp the "Throw kindness around like confetti" sentiment onto your Pool Party Cardstock and use the Banner Triple Punch to notch the end.  Set both of these pieces aside for now.
  • Now onto the more complicated parts (I'll try to make this as easy to follow as possible!)
  • The first part of this section is to stamp the largest jar from the Jar of Love Stamp Set onto a piece of scrap Whisper White Cardstock and use the coordinating Framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies to die cut the image out using your Big Shot.  You may also want to line up the inside of the jar to die cut that out at the same time.
    • Tip: This is where that Magnetic Platform can really come in handy!  The dies will have perfect placement around and inside your stamped image with this tool.  I seriously use it all the time.
    • Tip #2:  Save the middle of the jar!  We can use it later!
  • Now that you've die cut out the jar, you can use a Blender Pen and color the inside of it with the Classic Stampin' Pad in Pool Party.  This step really is optional, though, but I love the little wash of color!  It helps with the realism!
  • Next, take the small round circle stamp from the Jar of Love Stamp Set and start stamping circles on your 3"x4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock about where you want to place your jar image.  Don't forget to have those "confetti circles" spilling out of your jar, too!
    • Tip: I stamped and die cut an extra jar (with the middle cut out) on a piece of scrap paper and used that as a guide for my placement.  It helped a lot!
  • Now we need a piece of Window Sheet adhered to our jar!  Attach to the jar using your favorite adhesive, but for this particular project, I strongly recommend the Fast Fuse.
    • Tip: You can use your Framelits and your Big Shot to die cut the large jar piece from your Window Sheet!  This makes the assembly part so much easier!  No fussy-cutting needed!
  • Remember the middle of the jar we die cut out?  Use that as a guide for your Foam Adhesive Strips.  Be sure there are no gaps between the strip, as you don't want any of your sequins falling out!  Once you have a nice little "bucket" for the inside of your jar, you can discard the middle.
  • Place a generous amount of sequins inside your vessel and then carefully remove the sticky backing of the Foam Adhesive Strip.  Place your jar on top of the adhesive strip and---voila!  You have a shaker!
  • Now you can adhere the shaker to the DSP and then adhere your banner sentiment below.  Finish this card off with a little Enamel Shape in a coordinating color and you're complete!
Now, because I love Bonus Days and because I love Gifts (my love language = gifts!) I have a gift for you!

If you order both the Jar of Love Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Everyday Jars Framelits I'll send you the Sequin Assortment (Iridescent) as my special Thank You!  Plus, you'll get your $5 Bonus Day Coupon!  (Cue the confetti now!!!)  Just be sure to use Promo Code: YNDRE6TF when you order!

**NOTE: If your order is more than $150 (which earns you at least $15 in Bonus Day Coupons!) do not use the Promo Code!  I want you to get your Stampin' Rewards --- I'll still get you your FREE gift!

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: Fold Over Gift Box

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!  I hope that your week is going well!  Can you believe that August is half-way over??  I have seen lots of Social Media posts about kids already going back to school; the kids in my area go back next week!  Eek!  I imagine that means that there's a lot of last minute shopping, meal-planning, and organization happening for many households.  (Or all households, really.  I mean, everyone has shopping, meal-planning, and organization to do!) Well, I'd like to share with you a quick and easy 3D project that you may be able to utilize for this busy Back-to-School Rush!  I shared it with a group of ladies a couple weeks ago at a Crop Event and it was huge hit! This multi-purpose Gift Box is super versatile!  You can use it if you want to present your kiddo's new teacher with a little summin'-summin' to start the year off, as a special way to present a home-baked cookie treat to a loved one in their lunchbox, or if you need a vessel to hold some
