Stampin’ Blends will be available for customers November 1, 2017! Demonstrators can buy them now. If you’re not a demonstrator, you could join my team and get the whole set plus a Memento ink pad now as your starter kit. Click here to find out how.

Check back here November 1st and I’ll have the product links for you.

I have the whole set of Blends and I really love them! The color selection is a perfect start. (I’m hoping we can eventually get them in all the Stampin’ Up! colors.) You can buy them as a complete set, in “Combo Packs” with both the dark and light markers, or one at a time.

Stampin’ Up! offers many styles of stamps. The stamps with outline images are very nice to color and will make you look like an artist. You can color with your Stampin’ Write Markers, with ink and an Aqua Painter or Blender Pen, or with Watercolor pencils. But I think you will love the results you will get with the new Stampin’ Blends.


Here’s the blank Blends chart.

I love Evernote and share my notebook of current Stampin’ Up! products. I have already added the notes for the new Blends markers. I have also added a new tag to the stamp sets that include stamps with line drawings. If you’re already sharing my Evernote notebook, just click on the “Line Drawing for coloring” tag and you’ll see the 143 stamp sets to try with Blends. If you aren’t sharing my Evernote Notebook of Current Products, all you have to do is ask me in an email.

I am moving from my tiny craft corner to a little bit larger “craft wall.” The room is small, but I plan to use every inch along that one wall. The room still needs to be available as a guest room with the Murphy bed and a baby room with the Pack and Play and diaper changing for babysitting our granddaughter. All the craft stuff needs to tuck away out of sight for the guests and safely locked up for the baby. And it also needs to be clear and safe for our new Guide Dog Puppy in Training to play while I craft.

There was just no room for my Color Caddy. What to do? I didn’t want to spend lots of money after splurging on the granite counter. I am so happy with what I came up with! I have a great storage solution for the price of one sheet of foam core board, some card stock, and adhesive. It even gave me a place to tuck in my Stampin’ Scrub!

You can make it for just a few stamp pads or for the whole collection like I did. I usually include links for the supplies, but you probably really do have everything you need. I used Fast Fuse to make each stamp pad box, but you could use Tear and Tape. I used Glue Dots to adhere the boxes to the foam core board, but you could use any adhesive.

I took a box of supplies on our camping trip to the eastern Sierras. I could have made a dozen different cards with the supplies I brought. I think it’s fun to stamp on the go… unless it gets windy! I made this card for my friend Martha who has a birthday the day this posted.

Click here for the free detailed instructions.

Make your own Basic Tool Kit to go

I don’t have room to start stamping! This link shows how I’ve packed a card base and layers of every color of card stock, the tool kit, blocks, the Basic Tool Kit, a few stamp sets and 20 stamp pads into just two small boxes. It also has the cutting plan to get a card base, a large layer, and two small layers from a sheet of card stock.


When my husband returned to our campsite after fishing, he took this picture of my camp stamp studio. He thought it was funny to see the hatchet there close at hand. No cards were actually harmed by the hatchet. And yes, my little box is nice and organized, but as soon as I start working I have stuff all over the table.

 

I hope you didn’t lose your coupon you earned in July with the Bonus Days promotion…

You can use that coupon for anything, but you may want to choose a new set that will be previewed in August called Carols of Christmas. It will be in the 2017 holiday catalog.

But wait! There’s more! There is a special on the Starter Kit for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who join during the month of July. You will get the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set from the 2017 holiday catalog and a fabulous Essentials Gift Pack. Click here to learn more about this amazing offer!

 

 

This card is so quick and easy! The Happy Birthday Thinlit does all the work for you! I used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper with just a peek of the Lemon Lime Twist card stock. I added a bit of interest with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and then the gorgeous Basic Black ⅜” Shimmer Ribbon finished it off.

I also shared a way of labeling Washi Tape. If you haven’t noticed, I love having the product name, item number, page number, and coordinating colors (or products) on everything. My little labels seemed to fall off the Washi Tape. I’ve been hanging my Washi Tape on a chain… some people use large library rings. Suddenly it occurred to me that I could add a label to the chain. Problem solved!

17-18 Washi Labels
