Using DSP in Home Decor Projects

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper isn't just for card making and scrapbooking. Put it to use in your home decor projects.

Here is my latest home decor project. I had a bare wall in my new home and just couldn't find something I loved for this space. So after 18 months of looking at this bare wall, I started thinking what can I make to fill that space until I find something that really speaks to me, something more permanent. This is what I came up with. I adhered 6 sheets of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper to 12" x 12" stretched canvases. I love how they turned out, and I had so much fun making them. I found a new way to use some of my Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper for an easy to make home decor project that costs just a few dollars. Now, I have something pretty to look at instead of a bare wall, and am getting lots of compliments on it too. And best of all, it's such an inexpensive project that I can change it out at any time without feeling guilty. I can change it out to coordinate with the seasons, holidays, or new accent pillows if I choose. And when I find something more permanent for this wall, I will likely find a new place for this wall collection.

I used the same process for this project that I did for my DIY Designer Series Paper Coasters. You can see that video demonstration with this link: https://bit.ly/2SXTkF5

This card created by my friend and Stampin' Up! demonstrator Tamra Davis was the inspiration for my #applepicking 2-page scrapbook layout. I never would have thought to put Real Red and Pretty Peacock together, but I love it! It's fresh and fun - an unexpected surprise! I hope you like it as much as I do!

Pressed Petals for a Special Couple

Today, Friday, October 4th, a special young couple commit themselves to one another as they get married. I'll be attending the wedding of two of my daughter Emily's best friends from Mason High School. Emily is Maid of Honor at Morgan & Lincoln's wedding. I've watched these "kids" and their friendships grow since middle school. I'm happy to be attending this special occasion and am excited to share this gift of love for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Apple Orchard pics & scrapbook pages

Last weekend, my daughter Andrea and sister Joan and I went apple picking. The weather was gorgeous, the outing fun, and the apples delicious. This apple picking venture inspired me to use the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and coordinating Apple Builder Punch for some awesome projects. Check them out in the recent Facebook Live video below.

Ok, I'm just going to say it now. before you watch the video. This Apple Builder Punch is THE BEST!  I knew I would love it. I just didn't know how much!

(Unfortunately, the internet cut out at the very end of my Facebook Live so the video ends a bit too soon. We can do our best, but don't have control over what the internet may do during a Live video.)

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the Night Before Christmas and all through the house...you know how it goes! I'm tickled that Stampin' Up! took inspiration from a favorite Christmas story of many of ours to make fun, festive products to help us get out Christmas crafting on. The Night Before Christmas Suite will delight adults and children alike with traditional colors and images that come to mind when we hear the words 'The Night Before Christmas'. 

In the following video from a recent Facebook Live, I show you how I made loads of cards (including a couple of fun fold cards) and two Christmas collages with 2 products from the Night Before Christmas Suite. I used the Night Before Memories & More Card Pack (#150808 at $11) and coordinating Night Before Christmas Cards & Envelopes (#150440 at $11). These cards and collages were made quickly and easily; they're darling; and they didn't break the bank! I'd say that's a win!

Follow Your Art...It's good for you...body, mind, and soul!

This Follow Your Art card I received in a demonstrator card swap was created Stampin' Up! demonstrator Lynn Feldkamp. It's filled with fun elements including many things I use in my Stampin' Up! business regularly...ribbons, baker's twine, buttons, and of course, stamps, ink, and paper. The colors are bright and cheery. Want to make this card too? Great because I've made it easy for you to do so with my free PDF Project Sheet.
