Today is the last day to buy from the 15-16 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog and Happy Home is retiring. It’s also the last day to get 15% off the bundles in this catalog. Shop Now and collect Frequent Shopper Rewards.
If you have purchased from me in the last year and you would like a 2016-2017 annual catalog, just let me know and I’ll get one to you.
16-17 Supply Labels (Avery 5167) These labels go on most of my Stampin’ Up! products. I can’t tell you how many times I can’t find an item in the catalog or perhaps I can’t remember the name of an embossing folder or whatever. It’s all there on the sticker!
16-17 Stamp Case Slips How do you like to organize your stamp sets? I arrange the alphabetically, but a lot of people organize them by theme. Print these pages on plain copy paper, cut them up into strips on the lines, and slip them into the stamp set cases. The color coding matches the colors in the catalog and the catalog tab. The slips also give you the item number for wood-mount, clear-mount, or photopolymer versions (English). On the back the stamp sets you’ll see the recommended blocks and coordinating products.
16-17 Large Labels These are the labels I use on 12″ x 12″ pockets. I used to print them on labels, but I’ve found the labels didn’t want to go through my printer. I just print them on plain copy paper and adhere them to with Fast Fuse. That works great!
16-17 DSP Labels Someone asked me to create these labels with just the names and colors, so I continue to update them with the new Designer Series Papers.
16-17 DSP Sampler Yep. The displayed image is from several years ago, but the download is for this year’s DSP. These pages can be printed on Whisper White card stock and put on a ring or chain. Add 2″ x 3″ samples of the Designer Series Papers. I keep mine hanging near my crafting desk.
Some people like to keep all the Thinlits, Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, and thin embellishments in Standard Stamp Cases. (I haven’t checked that all these Framelits will fit in the case.) Links in green are for wide (wood-mount) case inserts.
It’s pretty easy to go beyond your punches. Watch the video to see how it’s done. I love the Traveler stamp set with the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I will sorely miss that folder, Lost Lagoon ink and card stock, the 2 1/2″ Circle punch, and Candy Dots that are retiring! Perhaps they’re still available if you act fast!
The second photo shows the same card with all the same materials but without the use of a Big Shot and the easier version of the punched ship.
A whole family of bears to say I love you, happy Mother’s Day, congratulations on a new baby, or just wishing you a day full of sunshine and a lake full of fish. I stamped extra bears with accessories so now I can just play paper dolls… er, bears. This is an easel card, so it will stand up on a shelf or on a desk. Sound’s complicated? No way! Just one extra fold.
We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
