Happy Friday, May 27th. I hope you've had a great week - one that was both productive and satisfying and worthy of a weekend of fun and some relaxation. Perhaps, you'll even get in a little stamping and paper crafting.

To help kick off your weekend, I'm sharing another Free Project Sheet to make this cute card featuring the Garden Birdhouse Stamp Set and the new Fabulous Frames Dies along with the cheerful Orchid Oasis color.

January - June 2022 Mini Catalog LAST CHANCE LIST

My heart is very heavy this week as I'm sure it is for many of us. Living life as "normal" just hasn't felt right after learning of yet another tragic school shooting in our country. Yesterday morning, I found it very difficult to focus on my work. so decided instead to get outside. I mowed my lawn, walked, sat in the sun just trying to process my thoughts and feelings, called a friend, and took time for prayer. I didn't feel much like doing a Facebook Live last night either but decided I needed to and that I'd probably feel better for having done so. I was right. I'm grateful for the support, understanding, grace, compassion and prayers of this Stampin' Peace community we've created together.

This week, I was reminded why I chose the name "Stampin' Peace" for my business. I was reminded that stamping and paper crafting and sharing it with others brings me joy and peace. It reminded me that we all have the power to make the lives of others a little better and a little brighter by making and sending handmade cards. Together, with this simple act of sending cards we spread love, happiness, compassion, and understanding. These small acts of kindness do make the world a better place. Every card sent makes a difference to someone somewhere. It is my hope that card making, and more importantly, the sending of our cards, fills each of our hearts and those we serve with a sense of joy and peace. Today, more than ever we need to be kind, thoughtful, compassionate, respectful. We need to believe that every life is precious and that every life matters. We need to work together to create peace in our hearts and to advocate for peace in our communities, in our country, in our world. I pray for peace today and everyday for you, for me, for our families and friends, for our neighborhoods and communities, for our country and our world. I believe in the power of prayer, and I believe we also need to advocate for a better life for us all. We need to advocate for peace just as much as we pray for peace. 

P3S-782-1200x1200

Below is the replay of my May 25th Facebook Live. I wasn't quite as upbeat as I usually am, but with the support of my viewers, I got through it. It's nice to have a community where I/we can feel safe sharing our thoughts and feelings.

You will want to grab your January - June 2022 Mini Catalog and a pen to use as you watch this video. I hope you find this Mini Catalog "walk through"  helpful as I point out the retiring products and which of those are discounted.

Sun Prints in Gray Granite

Have you seen the gorgeous new Sun Prints Suite in the Annual Catalog? If not, be sure to check it out on pages 90 - 91. It's got an amazing stamp set & dies bundle, gorgeous Designer Series Paper, and a fun Fern Embossing Folder. With a little creativity and imagination and inspiration, the possibilities are endless.

In this video replay of my May 20th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make 2 gorgeous cards with some of the Gray Granite prints in the Sun Prints Designer Series Paper pack. You'll see how to die cut a shape and then use both the positive and negative pieces to make 2 cards. You know me, if I can make 1 card, I might as well make 2. Right? A great way to build up a nice stash of cards to have on hand.

 

Stampin' Up! Sun Prints Suite - Mary Knabe For these 2 cards, I die cut the large rectangular label shape from the Painted Labels Dies from a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" DSP. I used the negative or "frame" piece for one card and the positive or "label" piece for the second card. The Vellum and Rustic Metallic Dots greatly enhance these simple but elegant cards.

Fabulous Fun Fold Card & Feeling Loved, Valued, Appreciated by SU!

I'm excited to share with you today, the many wonderful gifts I received from Stampin' Up! for being a 2022 Incentive Trip Achiever. Earning an incentive trip is a pretty big deal as less than 1% of demonstrators worldwide earned this reward. The gifts are amazing as you will see in the second half of this post, but first I need to share a truly FUN and EASY Fun Fold Card inspired by a card created by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts for a recent card swap. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one and share it with all of you. I hope you enjoy this video demonstration and will plan to make your own version of this Fun Fold Card and perhaps even share it on my Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe Facebook Page.

I received this card from SU! Demonstrator Kelley Pitts in a recent card swap and used it as the inspiration for my May 6th Facebook Live and today's blog post.

This week, Emily and I were supposed to be on the 2022 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip I earned. It was to be a Western Caribbean Cruise. SU!, however, made the decision to cancel it last fall due to Covid. While I was sad to not be able to take Emily on this trip and to not gather with the other SU! 2022 Incentive Trip Achievers, I still owe a big THANK YOU to Stampin' UP! for the wonderful gifts they sent. Just another way Stampin' Up! has made me feel loved, valued, and appreciated for the work I do. (Less than 1% of SU! Demonstrators worldwide earned the 2022 incentive trip. It takes a lot of hard work, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to earn such a reward.) 

Many customers, team members, and followers have asked me what the gifts were. So here's a look at them now.

Sweet Songbirds Class to Go

This week, my daughter Emily and I are in Florida spending time with our friends Susi and Denny from Mason, OH. We were "down the road" neighbors while my family lived in Mason. Susi is my Stampin' Up! upline. She is the person who first taught me stamping when I joined her stamp club and later encouraged me to sign up as a Demonstrator. If you know the story, it took me a year and a half to say yes to her. I said yes so she would quit asking me, but little did I know, Stampin' Up! would become my passion and even a business for me. So far on our vacation, we've enjoyed a day at the pool, dinner out, seeing the sunset at Nokomis Beach, Mexican Train game night (I lost miserably), a day at Siesta Key Beach, shopping, and a visit to the Daiquiri Deck. Tomorrow, Emily and I are getting early to see the sunrise and hunt for shark teeth on the beach with Susi. I'm so grateful to have this week of vacation to spend with Emily and good friends.

Perfectly Penciled Cash Card for the Graduate

Mother's Day is here once again. Every year at this time, I find myself reflecting on my years as a mom. Am I good enough? Have I shown enough love? Did I praise enough? Was I a good listener? and on and on. Yes, I've always taken my role as a mom very seriously, maybe too much so at times???, I don't know. I consider being a mom the most important work I'll ever do. Did I always get it right? No. Did I make mistakes? Yes. I think I can look back at my 30+ years as a mom and honestly say I did my best - the best I knew how with what I had. From the moment they were born and I learned what instant love was to now as I embrace the time I get to spend with them as adult children, I have loved them unconditionally and with all my heart and soul, and I have thanked God every day that he entrusted them to me.

I look at my daughters now (Andrea is 30. Emily is 25.) and see what truly good people they are. They're hard working, kind, caring, loving, compassionate, respectful people. They always strive to do and be their best, give of themselves, and care for others. They're both quite fun to be around and are good at making me laugh and smile. I look at Andrea and Emily and see that they are my greatest achievement and my legacy. I am forever grateful to be their mom. 

My own mom passed on nearly 6 years ago. I spend time thinking about her too, knowing that she too did her best. It's still strange not to call her on this day to wish her Happy Mother's Day. I think, though, that she'd be just as proud of me and my family today as she was when she was here on earth with us. I think she looks down on us and sees the wonderful people we are and celebrates milestones and special moments with us and watches over us in our struggles too. I'm grateful for the signs I get that she is still with me in spirit.

Happy Mother's Day to ALL the wonderful moms out there. I hope your day is blessed with love, happiness, family, and friends, and perhaps a few surprises too.

This day is also a day of celebration for another reason. Today I'll watch my niece graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing from The Ohio State University. I'm so proud of Alison, and in celebration of her achievement, I created a special money card for her. I want to show you how you can make a money card too. 

I've chosen some new products that I though would be perfect for this task. You can't go wrong with the Perfectly Pencilled Designer Series Paper for black & white cards with a pop of color. This black and white DSP can be used as is or customized with any of our color tools and inks. My money card also features the Happiness Abounds Bundle. Why not dress your cash gifts in some pretty packaging perfect for graduations, birthdays, weddings, Mother's Day, and so many more gift giving occasions. You'll have fun doing it and your special people will be delighted with your handmade presentation.

Cash Card Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Basic Black card base = 7" x 8 1/2"
  • Basic White card stock =  6 3/4" x 3" (cut 2) and 6 3/4" x 1 3/4"
  • Basic White for banner = 4" x 3/4" plus scrap for stamping & color flower and leaves
  • DSP = 6 5/8" x 2 7/8" and 6 5/8" x 1 5/8"
  • DSP for belly band = 8 1/2" x 1"
