Toile Tidings From Our House to Yours

It's never too early to start making Christmas cards. This simple yet striking card features the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper with its traditional colors, images, and patterns, and the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. I love the traditional Real Red and Very Vanilla color scheme of this card as well as it's simple layout. I love it so much, I wanted to share it with you and help you recreate it or CASE it on your own. I hope you find the Toile Tidings From Our House to Yours PDF Tutorial helpful to you. 

PS. The new holiday products will be available to order September 4th.

Hello Baby!

One of the great benefits of being a part of a Stampin' Up! team is designing, making, and swapping cards. This baby card was designed by my Merry Stampers Team Member Pat Drybala for a team shoe box swap last month. What a fun card to welcome a new baby to our world! You too can make this card with the PDF Project Sheet I wrote for Pat's fabulous card. Make the card as is or change up the color for a baby boy, baby girl, and/or to coordinate with baby's nursery theme.

May Your Days Be Merry & Bright!

Stampin' Up! makes holiday paper crafting fun, easy, and exciting. Our 2019 Holiday Catalog has something for everyone from traditional holiday themes and colors to some more "out of the box" ideas and colors schemes and everything in between. Holiday Catalogs have been sent, and from what I'm hearing many people received theirs last week. If you did not receive one from me or if you do not currently shop with another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am happy to send you one. (Email me your catalog request with full name and mailing address.) The Holiday catalog goes live on September 4th! I have loads of cards and projects in the works to share with you here on my blog and on my other social media sites, in-person classes & events, Classes to Go, weekly Facebook Lives, and Stampin' Peace Newsletter.

Toile Christmas Designer Series Paper was designed with traditional scenes and prints to celebrate the holiday season. It's color scheme is simple and traditional as well, Real Red, Garden Green, and Very Vanilla.

Enjoy a free project sheet I've written for this card. It's easy to duplicate or change it up a bit and make it your own! Either way, your hand stamped Christmas cards are sure to make your family and friends' days merry & bright. For hand stamped cards are a gift from the heart.

Seaside Notions Thinking of You

Ahhhh, the ocean, beach, sand, seashells, sunshine, and relaxation! That's what the Seaside Notions Stamp Set makes me think of. This card was created by Susi Brunk, the person who got me started stamping and convinced me to purchase the Starter Kit. Nearly 11 years later, I continue to build my Stampin' Peace Business and my Merry Stampers Team. I'm so grateful to Susi, just wish it didn't take me 2 years of stamping with her to take the plunge and become a demonstrator. My Stampin' Up! journey has been and continues to be a great source of joy for me. Now is a great time to join my Stampin' Up! family, and I can help you make your demonstratorship whatever you want it to be. You can be a happy hobby stamper enjoying a discount on all your Stampin' Up! orders, build your own business and team, or something in between. My team has it all! There are many benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and even more when you join MY team! Contact me to discuss what Stampin' Up! can do for you or JOIN NOW on my website. Get an additional $30 in product in your Starter Kit above the usual $125 in product of your choice when you join by August 31st. That's right, I said "your choice".

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.

Thanks for Keeping Me Together

I'm so proud of Stampin' Up! team member and friend, Beth Jones. Beth hosted her first Stampin' Up! party on Wednesday. I'm so happy I was invited and was able to go to support Beth.  Beth did a great job. She was very organized, gave a great presentation, had 3 wonderful make-n-takes, and a great host. This is one of Beth's make-n-takes. It uses the Love You to Pieces Stamp Set and Puzzle Pieces Dies by Stampin' Up! Beth chose a cheerful color combination of Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, and Blueberry Bushel, all 2018-2020 In Colors. Don't you love it?

I've created a PDF Project Sheet for you to recreate Beth's card. Happy Stamping!

A Good Man with Seaside Spray

Here's another card featuring A Good Man stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I received this card created by Melissa Thomas in a recent demonstrator card swap. It's fresh and fun and makes me think SUMMER! What a perfect card for a man's summer birthday, to say thank you for being a hard worker, retirement, and more. I know you all probably have ideas of your own too.
