Thinking about party decorations? Wedding? Shower? The craze of rosettes has been going on for quite awhile (check some past posts) but the new Designer Rosette Die (see it online) makes them so easy! Here are two full-size rosettes that have been hanging in my stamp studio since the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper debuted.
It’s hard to tell the size of these from the picture, but they’re about like dinner plates — they’re 10 3/4″ across with the scalloped edge. They make great medallions to hang for an event. Just choose colors that coordinate with your theme — think pink & blue for a baby shower, or shimmery white for a wedding shower.
You can even make fun simple table decor pieces. Here are some floral picks created with the Designer Rosette Die. I put a 12 x 6″ strip of paper through the Big Shot with the die, then cut the scored strip into 3 pieces to make these three mini rosettes.
Add a coordinated color theme mini rosette to your table flowers, or just make vases of the mini rosettes. This ‘fancy’ vase is a repurposed Frappucino bottle.

Are you hoarding the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper yet? There are only 2 weeks left to add this paper to your collection before Sale-A-Bration runs out! When you have only a few 1/2″ strips left for this paper (or any other paper you love), here is a great project for making the most of them – Patchwork Paper Quilts with the Big Shot Adhesive Sheets (see them online)!
Are you coming to Stamp Club with Meg today? You’ll be making this card as one of your projects. If you can’t make it, here is the ‘how to’ on the Patchwork Technique:
- Cut a piece of neutral card stock to the final size of your patchwork piece.
- Press onto a piece of Big Shot Adhesive Sheet. Remove backing paper and place adhesive-side up on your table.
- Begin with a ½” strip of Designer Series Paper across the center.
- Add strips of paper at right angles, repeating your pattern as desired.
- Trim ends and adhere to project.

Do you have favorite photos that are just screaming to be featured on a scrapbook page? While I applaud scrappers who can ‘keep up’ with their family photos, that’s just not going to be me. Instead, my scrapbook strategy is to enjoy the time I have to scrapbook by picking and choosing my favorite photos. I don’t worry about whether I’ve finished a baby book before I go on to a picture from last month.
For me, I find it’s a much more enjoyable (aka less stressful) way to catalog our family memories. Here’s a page that I put together last month for Vickie’s Workshop, using the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and the Fresh Vintage stamp set (both from the Sale-A-Bration Mini Catalog – download it now – and can be selected for free with a $50 order until March 31).
Look familiar? It should! The layout is the same as the My Digital Studio page I shared yesterday — the one I patterned after a layout in the Stampin’ Up! catalog.
Still trying to decide which Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and selections you want to earn for free before March 31st? Here are some of the projects I’ve shared on my blog:
- Fresh Vintage stamp set
- Triple Treat Flower stamp
- Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper
- Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brads Bundle
- Elementary Elegance stamp set
- Sprinkled Expressions stamp set
- Outlined Occasions stamp set
Ever try to punch in a specific part of a card, only to find that the punch has moved or you didn’t center the punch as you expected? Here is a GREAT punching trick that will help you line up your punches every time. It’s a great technique for projects like this, where you need your Blossom Punch shape right in the center of each note card layer.
This little note card set and matching Fancy Favor Die gift box are one of the 4 projects from my current Stamps in the Mail Club round! (learn more)
I am in love with these colors! They remind me of rainbow sherbet, which is my absolute favorite Baskin Robbins flavor…oh, and Daiquiri Ice, YUM. Until it’s available this summer, I’ll content myself with stamping in Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Peach Parfait.
- Punch a piece of sticky note so the punched shape includes a sticky edge
- Place this mask over the paper, positioning where you’d like the final hole
- Punch directly over the mask, lining punch with shape. VOILA!
Stamps: You’re My Type, Mixed Bunch;
Ink: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait;
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait, Chocolate Chip, Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration!);

When I go to someone’s home for a Stampin’ Up! party, I often plan two projects to share — a quick & easy card, and a project using chocolate. Because stamping is fun, but stamping with CHOCOLATE is better! I have a number of “candy projects” in past blog posts, and here is another, using the Two Tags Die for the Big Shot. (see it online)
The larger of the tags on the Two Tags Die is just about perfect for wrapping a small Hershey’s bar. This project could hardly be simpler:
- Cut the large tag in the Two Tags Die from the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (it’s one of the free Sale-A-Bration selections)
- Add candy in the center (I like to hold mine in the center with a Stampin’ Dimensional) and wrap with ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack (also one of the Sale-A-Bration selections)
- Heat emboss and punch the postage stamp from the Fresh Vintage stamp set (Sale-A-Bration selection) using the Postage Stamp Punch
- Layer with Poppy Parade card stock & give to a friend!
Even more fun, these little treats can be adapted for pretty much any occasion. Here’s a fun idea that I used for Valentine’s Day. We made 50 of these as favors for the Senior Bingo Party at our local library!
Yup — the Occasions Alphabet (see it online) that I used here is a terrific one to have on hand for all kinds of occasions, all year long.
The other day when I posted my Scallop Square Note Card, I received an email from my friend and fellow LovenStampfuls Demonstrator Carol Jones. She inspired me with her project and I decided to make a few envelopes, too! Here’s a smaller version of my Scallop Square Note Card, created using the Scallop Square Duo Die (see it online). The finished card is about 3 x 3″.
Having trouble deciding which Sale-A-Bration items to pick for free? Sorry, my post here isn’t going to make it any easier! I used several of the Sale-A-Bration selections:
- Elementary Elegance stamp set – great frame, which matches the Curly Label Punch and includes “Happy Birthday” and “Hello” words that fit the style & size
- Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper – gorgeous colors that match the Ribbon & Brad Bundle, of course
- Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Bundle – includes 2 rolls of the 1/8″ Organdy Ribbon (Lucky Limeade & Calypso Coral) as well as a pack of assorted brads to match
Need all three choices? Just place an order that comes to $150 before shipping/tax, and you’ll earn all 3! Plus you’d earn Hostess Benefits (called “Stampin’ Rewards” for online ordering), which means you’d get another $25 to spend for free. And you’d earn 3 Idea & Inspiration Sheets from me!
It’s that time again! Yup, time to sign up for a new Round of my Stamps in the Mail Club! This Round (#22!) we’ll be featuring the new Mixed Bunch stamp set from the Occasions Mini catalog. Stamps in the Mail Club is the perfect chance to add this set to your collection, AND receive ideas for using it!

I’ve been playing with my new supplies from the upcoming Mini Catalogs, and wanted to share one sample. Okay, 2. I couldn’t choose between them. Here are two cards that we made at my LovenStampfuls group Holiday Party this past weekend:
Love the Designer Series Paper and stamp set and the sweet paper cut-out shape?? They’re all coming, in the Sale-A-Bration Mini Catalog, due out January 24th. OR, you can have them NOW if you’re a demonstrator
Eek! Loving this new Big Shot Die, which makes rosettes a breeze. I was literally doing a little dance in my stamp room the first time I created a rosette with it. This one’s little, but the die also makes rosettes measuring 10-3/4″ across. The Designer Rosette Die comes out on January 4th in the Occasions Mini Catalog, unless you’re a Demonstrator and want to pre-order now…
Okay, enough teasing for now. But really, we do have a lot of fun as demonstrators, whether you want to purchase for yourself at a discount (learn more) or you’d like to build a business that pays for your stamping addic…oops, I meant stamping hobby, or even use your Stampin’ Up! income to pay a family bill or two each month. I’m here to help you get whatever YOU want out of being a demonstrator!
The 2-day Demonstrator Starter Kit special is fabulous — I’m sure Santa would love some help from the UPS delivery truck delivering to your house! (see the Starter Kit contents)
