Earlier in December I was invited to teach a journal-making class for elementary school students at The Urbana Free Library in Urbana, Illinois. Of course since my pre-order of goodies for the Spring Catalog had just arrived, I had to pull out some new goodies to use on my notebook.
Some of my favorite Sneak Peek items — the Tea Lace Paper Doilies, the Artisan Embellishments Kit (with buttons, lace, ribbon, printed pieces, etc.) and the Hearts A Flutter stamp set. Remember, you can start ordering these items on January 3rd!
To turn this plain composition notebook into a journal, here’s what I did:
- Brush Mod Podge on the back of lightweight kraft paper (I used the packing paper from Stampin’ Up! orders — it’s free!)
- Adhere paper to journal and fold or trim the edges
- Begin the collage project – acrylic paint with foam brushes for background smudges or to cover chipboard
- Apply acrylic paint to stamps with a light touch using a foam brush, being sure to wash stamps right away (the Stampin’ Scrub – see it online – works great here)
- Add buttons and dimensional elements securely with Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive - aka Green Lid Glue – (see it online)
Here are a few more of the photos from this fun library event:
Stamps: Hearts A Flutter; Paper: Tea Lace Paper Doilies, More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper; Accessories: Petite Pennant Builder Punch, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Baker’s Twine, Artisan Embellishments Kit, Acrylic Paint
Two weeks ago I posted a fun Kraft Gift Box decorated with the Pennant Parade stamp set and the Pennant Builder Punch. Today I have another box to share, using the same set of supplies, but with a whole different look.
The Silver Glimmer Paper (see it online) is a great accent for the Island Indigo and Pool Party colors, and the sweet little Jingle Bells add flair to any holiday packaging!
Be sure to check for more ideas for the Pennant Parade stamp set and Pennant Builder Punch on my blog.
If you’ve been on my blog in the last week, you’ve probably seen quite a few pennant projects. But then again, if you’ve been at a department store or big-box store in the last week, you’ve probably seen pennants in their decor sections, too. They’re super-popular, and you see them everywhere!
This card was shown on stage during the Stampin’ Up! Cruise to Alaska this spring (fabulous trip!). I loved it so much that I had to create my own to share. The card features the My Friend stamp set (see it online) as well as the Petite Pennant Builder Punch (see it online). The little pennants make me so happy that I am featuring them in my Stamps in the Mail Club, beginning this month (learn more).
Like the background at the top? I do, too! It’s done with the new Fancy Fan Letterpress Plate (see it online). If you haven’t learned how to use the Letterpress Plates, definitely check out my Video Tutorial. Here are a few tips:
- I find that they work best with colored card stock (since it’s heavier weight than the Whisper White)
- I like to use either Versamark Ink or Craft Ink with the plates
- Plus I also find that using the Premium Crease Pad as the top layer, instead of a regular Cutting Plate, gives me a better impression
Oh! And I nearly forgot–the Designer Series Paper here is Pocketful of Posies (see it online). This is a terrific ‘funky’ paper with a bunch of great patterns and colors.
I think the new Petite Pennant Builder Punch (see it online) has to be one of my favorite punches of all-time. There are so many fun ideas for little pennants, from cards to banners. Here’s one of the projects we’ll be making at my New Catalog Idea Blitz this evening. Everyone needs a sweet photo stand for their latest snapshot, right?
Or if you don’t have a photo handy, maybe try your latest card creation! These little clips are easy–they’re created from an office supply binder clip (the ones that hold 1″ or more or paper). Be sure not to miss the matching Pennant Parade stamp set! (see it online)
So have you gotten your own copy yet? Or downloaded it as a pdf to keep on your computer? (click here to download) Grab your catalog and flip (or scroll) to page 9. Yikes! Check out the NEW Hostess Benefits plan!!
When you host a party or place an order of at least $150, you now get $25 to spend in the catalog. You can spend your Hostess $$ either in the Hostess Section on specially priced stamp sets (pages 10-15) or you can spend it anywhere in the catalog.
Good news! No more Level 3 Hostess Stamp Sets that you can’t get because your party isn’t big enough! Yahoo! Every stamp set in the hostess section can be ‘earned’ with a minimum $150 party, plus you can stretch your Hostess $$ further by choosing the Clear Mount option.
AND, if your party is at least $400, then you can ALSO pick ANY item from the catalog at 50% off. Think big-ticket items here: Stampin’ Write Marker set for $55 instead of $109.95, or the Big Shot for $49.90 instead of $99.95!
Best of all, don’t forget that as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, you can shop at a discount (20-40% off) plus you can ALSO be the ‘Hostess’ of your orders. So if you are placing a $150 order for your own supplies, you not only get your demo discount, but you also earn the $25 Hostess $$ to spend on more stamps.
Okay, so all that hype… here is my favorite new Hostess Stamp Set image, from the Tagtastic stamp set. I just love this little bear on the bicycle!

OH, and if you still need a ‘real’ copy of the NEW Stampin’ Up! Catalog, I’d be happy to help you. Drop me an email and I’ll send you a PayPal request for $9.95. That’s a half-price catalog (they’re usually $9.95) plus $4.95 Priority Mail shipping (these babies are heavy!). Plus I’ll include a Gift Certificate for $5 off your first order with me, so essentially your catalog is free. Just let me know if you’d like one!
