I've got some fun matching games to make for & with young children using Stampin' Up! Dinoroar Designer Series Papers. In my March 26th Facebook Live Video Replay, I'll also show you how to make them as well as an easy Pop--Up card featuring the coordinating Dino Days Stamp Set & Dino Dies. Watch and have fun making some Dino-rific projects for a Dinoroaring good time!
Matching games are fun to make for & WITH your little ones or how about enlisting the help of older siblings or baby sitters to help in the making and creating of the games. These matching games are so quick and easy to make. Change up the theme and adjust the game cards for various interests, ages, and skill levels.
Our Mini Pizza Boxes are ideal for storage of this simple matching game.
Stampin' Up! has another great option for matching game storage, our Half Wide Stamp Cases.
My Dino Days Pop-Up card folds flat and fits in a standard size envelope for mailing.
Adhere 5 1/4" x 4" Whisper White card stock to back of pop-up card for writing a message.

The detailed birthday images, confetti patterns, and bright colors make creating for so many occasions easy and fun. So enjoy my video demonstration then go have some fun creating Split Panel Cards with these Birthday Bonanza party animals.
Bermuda Bay is one of the many colors featured in the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper. I used Bermuda Bay card stock for the card base of my Split Panel card below.
Here's another version of my Birthday Bonanza Split Panel Card. This one is done on a Mango Melody Card Base.
Lions, Koalas, Toucans, oh, my! What fun party animals to help you create wonderful birthday and celebration cards!
Stampin' Up! Heart Doilies are wonderful for creating Valentine cards and favors, but I'd like to show you a few more ways to use them. Watch my video below to see some of my projects using Heart Doilies and learn to make my cute little "Love Bug".
Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelopes are a great product to make creating lots of cards quickly. They come as a set of 20 pre-cut and pre-scored 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards and 20 Envelopes. They come in both Whisper White and Very Vanilla, are quite affordable, and mailable. If you've overlooked this product or simply never used it, I highly suggest you give it a try.
In today's blog post, I want to show you a Card Folder I made for a set of 4 Note Cards & Envelopes I showed in an earlier post. A pretty card folder with coordinating handmade cards makes a great gift for so many occasions, especially if you're on a budget.
To make a Card Folder holding a set of four 3 1/2" x 5" Note Cards & Envelopes, begin with an 8" x 10" piece of card stock. With card stock in vertical/portrait position, score at 2". Turn card stock to horizontal/landscape position, and score at 5 1/2". Fold on all score lines using Bone Folder for crisp creases. Open up card stock, place in horizontal position with 2" score line at bottom. Cut out a triangle as shown. Apply strong adhesive (I prefer Tear & Tape or Tombo Multipurpose Glue) to the 2" outside edges, fold up to form pockets. The finished card folder will be 5" wide x 6" high.
The layers on the front of my card are 4 3/4" x 5 3/4" Old Olive Card Stock and 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" Peaceful Poppies DSP.
This lovely sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set.

As stampers and card makers we know how much fun it is to make and give cards. We also know the joy we feel when others tell us how much they love and appreciate the cards we sent them. We also know that a SET of hand stamped cards makes a wonderful gift for so many people - our moms, grandmas, and sisters, neighbors, co-workers, party hosts, teachers, and many more. I want to show you how to make a pretty card folder as a creative way for you to gift a set of your handmade cards. In the following video replay from my January 12th Facebook Live, you'll see a demonstration of my Lily Impressions cards and card folder plus see a couple more I made previously. The cards and card folder I made in the video feature 4 Sale-A-Bration products - Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper, Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set, and Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set each Free with a $50 order and Lily Pad Dies Free with a $100 order.

The Belly Band is a 1" x 12" strip of Lily Impressions DSP. For the Lily and Lily Pad, I stamped the images in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink directly onto the Lily Impressions DSP then cut out with Lily Pad Dies.

Don't throw away those fancy store bags you carry your purchases home in. Decorate them with Stampin' Up! products to re-use for special occasions.
I love the tag die included in the Bonanza Dies collection.
I could hardly wait to show you the Christmas gifts I gave my Merry Stampers Team Members. I didn't want to show you all until each of my team members received theirs. Then with the hustle and bustle of the holidays and spending lots of time with my daughters, I forgot. But they are too awesome not to share now.
Each of my Merry Stampers received a Stampin' Up! acrylic block etched with our team name and SU! motto. I am so grateful to my friend Tamra Davis for doing such a wonderful job with the etching. Tamra does such great work! Check out her Ta Da Etsy Shop! And of course, being a paper crafter, I couldn't package these special stamping blocks any old way. I decorated Stampin' Up! Gold Mini Pizza Boxes with the beautiful Christmas Time is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper. I love how each of the boxes turned out, and I love the excitement, enthusiasm, and gratitude I got from my Merry Stampers for this special gift.
My success is very much in part to my wonderful team of caring and sharing demonstrators. They have helped me grow in so many ways! How blessed I am to lead others in this business.
Etching on Stampin' Up! Clear Acrylic Block was done by Tamra Davis.
Even the sides of my Gold Mini Pizza Boxes were decorated with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Simple but oh, so elegant!
A bit of Designer Series Paper and a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots was all it took to dress up this Gold Mini Pizza Box.
I put a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock in the bottom of the box, so the clear block would be seen better when the box was opened as opposed to it being on the plain white inside of the box.
