The Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper is so fun and versatile and perfect for your spring paper crafting. I chose my favorite print in the pack and paired it with Peekaboo Peach for striking results.
Peekaboo Peach, along with all the other 2016-2018 In Colors, will be on the Retiring List when it is published Monday, April 9th. I highly suggest that if you want any of the 2016-2018 In Color products, you order them now while supplies last. If history repeats itself, the In Colors will sell out very quickly, some even in the first day or two. Please use Host Code ZR7JR3BC.
Here are a few projects I made with Naturally Eclectic DSP and Peekaboo Peach card stock. I love them! How about you?

Ahhh, fresh fruits and bright colors. So fun to work with the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper on these cold, gray days in Ohio. A little taste of summer in the winter.
The video I prepared for you, shows several cards I made with the same layout all using products from the Tutti-Frutti Suite (OC pgs. 28-29). How easy it is to CASE this card and recreate with any of our beautiful Designer Series Papers and coordinating trims and embellishments. You don't have to recreate the wheel. Draw inspiration from the things you see, then make them your own. Plus I've included tips for using your 8 1/2" x 11" card stock most efficiently when making your card front layers. You won't want miss the alternate use of one of the 4 cute Itty Bitty Punches in the Tutti-Frutti Suite either. Be sure to view the video to the end for a small giveaway. Giveaway winners will be chosen at noon, Thursday, January 11th.

Add sequin embellishments last.
Norah O'Donnell of CSB This Morning, saw a picture of gift tags I was making for her producer, my niece, Lauren Galippo. Norah planned to order tags online, but Lauren hooked her up with me instead promising I'd make something special for her. I made 60 wine bottle tags and 50 gift tags for Norah. Here is a photo from Norah's Instagram story today plus a photo of the thank you note I received. I'm grateful for the opportunity to design and create for Lauren and Norah through my job as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I love what I do and I love sharing it even more. It's especially wonderful to share my love of paper crafting with those who truly appreciate hand crafted. #loveitliveitshareit
Be sure to watch my video to see how you too can make these wine bottle tags and gift tags. They are easy to make and are sure to bring many smiles and compliments when you give bottles of wine or spirits to your friends, co-workers, and holiday hosts.
I recently had the opportunity to do a couple custom orders for some special people. The first custom order I did was gift tags for my niece Lauren Galippo to use on cookie packages she made for her co-workers at CBS News. Lauren sent me a couple pictures so I could see her finished gifts. Take a look at my video to see the Smitten Mitten tags up close and to see how they were made.
I am thrilled to be sharing Stampin' Up! OnStage Live with 4 members of my Merry Stampers Team, Jenny Gilbert, Sharon Shreve, Vicki Center, and Melinda Fahnestock. Of course, I wanted to spoil them with a few gifts. Here is the gift bag I decorated for each of them. It was made using the Half Full Stamp Set and our new Stampin' Blends. Look how beautifully the gift bag coordinates with my swap card I showed yesterday. Inside, the ladies received some candy treats, wine, and an insulated cup personalized for this event by my talented friend Joni Ahlers. I think they will enjoy using this cup for a long time to come, and I hope it brings to mind wonderful memories of our shared OnStage experience each time they use it.
