I think Rooted in Nature is one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2018-2019 catalog. It has all the qualities of the beloved Lovely as a Tree with the added benefits of coordinating Framelits. It’s great for masculine cards. It can be used for Christmas and really any season. I shared a similar card a while ago, but hadn’t made a video. I made it at my in-house SIP Together, so it was time to make the video.

Such a lovely card. It looks fancy, but it’s really quite easy. If you already have a greeting stamp, blocks, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and a Stampin’ Pierce Mat, all the card stock, Designer Series Paper, ink, and envelopes comes to $62.95. You could then select the Lots of Lavender stamp set as your Sale-a-Bration item and get that free!

I saw this stamp set and thought of my granddaughter. She wears these shoes all the time. You cannot buy this stamp set… You can only get it free during Sale-a-Bration with a qualifying order of $50 here in the US. I was kind of surprised how quickly this card went together. I think you can hear that in my voice on the video. This card is an easy one to get started with too. There is no need for a Big Shot Die Cutting Machine or even punches. You can do this!

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.

The Daisy Delight bundle will have you making all kinds of cards. I also used the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper® for this project. The hardest part is deciding which of all the gorgeous designs to use!

I think this is a fabulous beginner project. You could make this card with just the Daisy Delight Bundle, the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, the Whisper White and Night of Navy Card Stock, and the two Classic Stampin’ Pads. The Embossing Paste adds a lot of texture for not much money, but I suppose you could use a different design from the Designer Series Paper. You won’t need a Big Shot. You could cut the banner ends with Snips. You don’t have to use the glitter. You could stamp the flower center instead of the Faceted Gem. You can do this!

Are you like me and you seem to have lots of cards but none just right the card you want to send? Or maybe you like to swap card fronts to have lots of inspiration, but the stack is growing and you need to clear out some of them? Or maybe your goal is card making, but your room is filled with cards and you need room for more stamps? It’s time to send cards!

First of all, keep track of your friends’ birthdays and other important events. Add them as recurring events on the calendar on your phone or computer (and add the addresses to make life even easier for yourself) or use the calendar I shared earlier this year.

Next, redesign the cards and card fronts you have. You can even reuse cards others have sent to you! This video shows several ways to re-purpose your cards. Get those cards in the mail!
