This box is so beautiful! And did you notice the Window Box Thinlits coordinates with the Sending Love Designer Series Paper® stack? In the video I shared a couple of tricks for working with the Thinlits. For instance, I put a piece of Washi Tape to mark where to place the trapezoid pieces so they align properly.
I absolutely love this stamp set! You can’t buy it, but you can get it freewith a $50 order between now and March 31, 2017. It’s Sale-a-Bration! Whoo-hoo!
I was going to make this card with my monthly group, but decided against it. We need to do a project for Valentine’s Day instead.
I think this card would be great to invite a friend over, to cheer someone up, wish them happy birthday, or to say Congratulations. I’m not sure I love the colors in this card, but I do love the chick dancing behind the chicken wire! I had seen the chicken wire on Pinterest, and after unsuccessful searches, I finally realized how it was done. It’s the new Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder! I used it “off label” with Stazon ink on Window Sheet so my chick would stay behind the wire. I also wanted my chick to stay upright in this shaker card. I think you’ll have to watch the video to see how that’s done. 🙂
Then I want you to send me pictures of your chicken dance card.
I mentioned in the video a clever hint to tie a ribbon around the roll of Glue Dots. I couldn’t remember who shared that tip. Karen and Judy both reminded me it was Connie Stewart. I love Connie’s videos and tips. I’m so glad to be able to give her credit.
I thought you might like to have the list of products that are being carried over from the Holiday catalog. Some of them are listed in the Occasions catalog, but not all of them. These products are still available.
Today is the day! It’s time for the new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration! I’ve got a video with some of my favorite things. I have my labels, case inserts, and other organization tools ready. I have updated my Evernote notebook with all the current products. Yippee!!!
(Of course, on one of the biggest days of the year, the whole Stampin’ Up! website crashed. They are back up and running. If you have questions about the outage, here is their Outage Q&A NA.)
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.
