Tutorial Tuesday: Quick & Easy Thanks

There's nothing sadder to me than the winding down of Sale-A-Bration.  There were so many gorgeous items to choose from this year!  I got all of my favorites---and there are still a few more days to get yours! 

Stampin' Up! spiced things up by giving everyone new, fresh choices throughout the Sale-A-Bration Period and my absolute favorite thing this year was the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.  It stands alone so wonderfully on its own and the thickness, texture, and shinyness of the foil is beyond belief!  (Seriously, people, if you haven't placed your order during Sale-A-Bration yet, then this is why you need to!)

The other thing I love about this Designer Series Paper is that you don't need anything else but it to make a beautiful card.  Take a look at today's Tutorial Tuesday creation:

Other than one stamped sentiment and a touch of extra "bling" with my Mini Sequin Trim, this DSP does all the work!  Here's what you need:

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Powder Pink Cardstock (3-3/8" x 4-7/8")
  • Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper (3-1/4" x 4-3/4")
  • Whisper White Cardstock (scrap big enough to die-cut a 1-3/4" circle)
  • Fold your Note Card in half at the score line.
    • Helpful Hint: A Bone Folder is very helpful in getting this thicker card base to crease nice and crisp!
  • Adhere your Powder Pink Cardstock to the card base.  Next, layer on top the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  • Die-Cut your 1-3/4" circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  • Stamp the "Thank You" Sentiment from the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set onto the die-cut circle.
    • Usually I stamp first and die-cut second, but since the Rose Wonder Stamp Set is made with the clear Photopolymer, I can see exactly where I'm stamping.  In this case, I find it easier to stamp after my circle is die-cut.
  • Next, trim a tad bit of the Mini Sequin Trim and adhere that to the back of your circle.  Then stick your circle on and voila!  It's all done!
Seriously, folks, I made this card in like, three minutes.  Maybe less.  Which can make tons of these cards in a snap and have gorgeous foiled cards on stand-by whenever you need them!  (Which is awesome, because the Note Cards & Envelopes come in packs of 20!)

AND, if you purchase all of the items above and throw in a Clear Block for that Photopolyer Stamp Set, you have yourself a $100 order and you can get TWO packs of that gorgeous Designer Series Paper for FREE!!!!

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
