Out with the old, in with the new

This weekend, I took the time to gather from my studio all the retiring items  that Stampin up! released in their retired list. I’ve challenged myself to create projects with these items before  you  start ordering from the New Stampin up! catalog at the beginning of June.  If you want me to reserve a copy of the new catalogue, simply send me an email.  It’s very dear to me to have a copy for my customers.   I’ve also already ordered products from the new catalogue and needed to make room for my new goodies.  This is one of the perks from attending on stage and all demonstrators will also be able to order in May.  We are so excited to have this opportunity to make cute projects for you before the official release!

Today, I chose the Help me grow stamp set #140764. This was the one stamp that I was most upset when I saw the list. But on the positive side, I also ordered in my pre order something exciting and similar.  Therefore, sometimes you have to let go of certain things as better things are ahead🙂  The stamp set coordinates with the Rose Garden Thinlits #140619. 

I also used the gold wink of stella glitter brush #141898 for the center of my flowers.  This item is also retiring.  But the clear wink of stella #141897 that I used on my petals is not retiring, thankfully!  It brings a glitter to your project.

The basic pearls will return but in a different format.  Therefore, you will also find these on the retired list #199247.  I added three on my card to balance my project.

My color combo consisted of pool party, very vanilla and crushed curry.  It’s a beautiful combo that you will see in the new catalogue.  By the way, demonstrators get their new catties before customers.  Another perk of being a demonstrator!  I initially joined for the discount 10 + years ago but realized there were so many other perks.  If you’d like more details, please feel free to email me.  If you join in May, you can pick items from the new catalogue for your starter kit.  That’s $165 of product for only $135.  No tax, no shipping:)

here is another of my samples using the help me grow stamp set:) 

 

Don't forget to view all the amazing products from the retiring list.  Order on my online store or email me your order.

I hope you enjoyed my help me grow cards and that you are inspired to use the retired products before they are gone for good! Happy stamping!

Overload bunny cuteness

 I had the pleasure to host my monthly team meeting last week.  We were chatting so much that I forgot to take pictures… I designed an easy make and take for them.  What I loved best is that everyone added their twist to their project.  Once again, I forgot to take pictures of their designs before they left. If you follow me on instagram (riverfrontstampin) you were able to see my project as I posted the love notes and matching box there.  If you didn’t see my pictures, here is a series of pictures.

I love the succulent garden designer series paper.  It is perfect for Easter and spring projects.  I’m a gingham girl.  There are two different gingham sheets in the designer series paper package, 2 sheets of each color. These two were my favorite.  Plus, there is a load of different designs in the kit.  The coordinating ribbon is gorgeous.

To make my bunnies, I used the basket builder and coordinating basket bunch.  The best part was the tail.  I used the pompom trim ribbon to make the fluffy ball.  The list of products is identified below. 

For a quick reference, I’ve added a list:

  • Basket builder framelits dies #143228
  • Basket bunch stamp set #143186
  • Succulent garden designer series paper #142778
  • Succulent Garden 3/8” ribbon combo Pack #142781
  • Whisper white mini pompom trim #141486
  • Sweet sugarplum ink pad #141395
  • Tip top taupe ink pad #138325
  • Whisper white card stock #100730
  • Linen Thread #104199
  • Mint Macaron 3/8” sheer linen ribbon #141656
  • Polka dot textured impressions embossing folder #133739
  • Scalloped tag topper punch  #133324
  • Pearl Basic Jewels #119247
  • Dimensionals #104430

The instructions to make the box are listed HERE.  The only difference with today’s box, I added a belly band with the succulent garden dsp.  My belly band measured 1” x 12’.  I wrapped it around the box.  It slides off easy if you add dimensionals to glue it down. To view measurements for the love notes and to make the cute tags on top, see instructions HERE.

Pour les clientes francophones, le jeu est disponible en français #143436 et pour le lot de panier de Pâques (jeu et poinçons framelits) #144732

Aside from prizes, recognition, we had yummy treats. Here's one of them! There's not a better feeling than a group of people getting together to stamp and have fun!

To all the demonstrators that have currently taken advantage of the starter kit and signed up on my team for March, I’m sending you this cute project in the mail!  Enjoy ladies!  If you haven’t taken the time to sign up for the starter kit, see details HERE.  You have until March 31st to sign up.  The starter kit is a great way to stock up on products. No shipping and pst tax only in the provinces applicable. You get $165 of products for $135 plus an additional two stamp sets for FREE.  Email me if you have any questions!

This past Saturday, Jo Ann, one of my team members and I hosted our first stamping event together. We had an amazing day.  The best part for me is seeing my old and new friends. There is nothing better than a bunch of crafty people getting together.  I would love to show a couple of highlights.

Keeping a sense of calmness

I don't know too many people who don't like photographic waterfront stamp sets?  There is something soothing about the High tide stamp set.  It brings a sense of calmness, relaxating and peacefulness.  The bonus is that it is also available in french, "pour les clientes francophones".  It's called Maree haute #143462. Speaking of calmness.  I don't know about you, but I cannot keep my craft room in order.  It's nonesense, there is no sense of calmness there!!! I cleaned it on Sunday and I'm embarrassed to say that I have to tidy up again:(  There must be a system! If you know the answer to tidyness in a craft room, please share…  I read this quote on pinterest:  "creativity is messy and I am very creative".  It just made me giggle.   I guess I'm creative.  More and more demonstrators are promoting videos about projects they have created.  I need to clean my studio before I venture in videos…

I chose a nautical color theme for the High tide stamp set today.  Measurements for this card are a little none tradional so I'll share the details below.  I think this stamp set is perfect for masculine cards.  My card today has a doily but I would not be ashamed to give it to a man!  Love my doilies.  Once again, I created different versions and a step up for this project.  I coordinated the stamp set with the floral boutique designer series paper.  You need to check out this designer paper in the annual catalogue.  It is beautiful and  the projects that stampin up published are so me.  I love the shabby chic look.  Check it out on p.76 of the annual catalogue.

Card #1

Steps

1.  Cut Night of Navy 4 1/4 x 11 and score at 5 1/5,9 3/4 and and 10 1/4

2.  Tear the edge of the night of navy card stock on one side (side where you've scored at 10 1/4 mark) 

3.  Cut 2 pieces of designer paper, one at 4 x 4  and the other at 4 x1 1/2 and adhere to card stock

4.  Punch two  holes with  the 1/8' hand held circle punch and thread the whisper white linen and tie with a knot.  on both extremities like in the attached image.

5.  Cut a piece of whisper white card stock at 2 1/2 x 3  1/2 and stamp image with night of navy ink.  Mount on a piece of  2 3/4 x  3 3/4 night of navy card stock.

6.  Add doily to designer paper  and pop up the stamped image to the designer paper. 

7.  Stamp a greating on whisper white card stock and attach to card.

And voilà!!

 

Card #2

Add white perfect accents #138416 to step up your card.

Card # 3

Added Night of navy solid Baker's twine

All the details to the products used are listed below.

Some extra goodies from me:*** When you order in my online store, add hostess code: ZC7CZ4HE.

Best promotion ever, join the fun…

Here are my two different versions of my sweet cupcake card!!! Love the sweet cupcake stamp set from Stampin'up!'s annual catalogue! I'm sending cards to some of my team members for their personal achievements…  There are so many perks to join stampin up for as little as 135$ Canadian, get 165$ of products plus 2 bonus stamp sets for a limited time! I'd love for your to join my team!

 

Join The Fun

Is crafting a big part of your life? Do you want to earn money while doing something you love? How about the convenience of setting your own hours? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then Stampin' Up! is the perfect opportunity for you.

Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator means sharing your passion for stamping with family and friends, meeting new people, and building a great business doing so-plus, you get to set your own schedule!  Click HERE for all the details….

The starter kit is also a great opportunity to get $165 of products for $135 and during sale a bration, you get two bonus stamp sets of your choice.

I would love to share my story on why I joined:  In June 2006, I was a full time nurse & a mother of 3 beautiful girls.  I attended a workshop and fell in love with the products.  I was just returning to work from a maternity leave and wanted to get the products at a discount price to complete my daughters albums.  I was able to reduce my nursing hours and create  my own working hours.  I started hosting for my friends and over the years I hosted parties with people like you, strangers that became friends.  I have experienced all levels with stampin up:  Buying the kit for the discount=hobby demonstrator, hosting to family and friends=business demonstrator, making it part of my family income and being #3 Demonstrator in Canada in 2011 while having a large team of demonstrators = a leader demonstrator. With Stampin up!  There is a place for everyone…

Join my team by clicking here or email me with your questions. Not from Canada, ask me how to link you to a demonstrator in your country!

I wanted to show you highlights from my card.  Do you see that sparkle on the icing on the cupcake, it's a new product we carry in the annual catalogue called Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  It comes in gold #141898 and clear #141897.  It's a glitter pen for accenting stamped images. 

A highlight of this product is that it is none messy… I get the glitter effect without having sparkles everywhere including my face 🙂

I've created two versions of the cupcake card.  This one above has more details… It includes extra ribbon and the new stitched shapes framelits dies #145372 that was sold out,  is back!!!!   Whoohooo!!!  When it sold out the first time in 2 weeks,  I wanted to cry… Now that it is back available, I ordered it and expedited the order to get it before they run out again.   Get yours today… #bestproductever.  It cuts thoughtfully stitched circles, squares and ovals in seconds with framelits dies and the big shot.

This version is simpler, less ribbon.  The up side to this is when creating simpler cards, you can duplicate them at a faster pace.

I have to say I adore my color combo.  All the details to the products used are listed below.    I also am loving the touches of textures stamp set.  It's so versatile. It's content has stamps that are perfect to use as backgrounds.  I hope you've enjoyed by birthday card.  Wishing youi a great evening, hope you stamp your heart out!

Some extra goodies from me:*** When you order in my online store, add hostess code:  ZC7CZ4HE.  This will give you an extra 5 samplers  cards from occasion's catalogue products created by myself, mailed directly to you…  If you join my team and purchase the starter kit:  Receive 2 PDF's from my occasion's event…

More love notes

I'm loving the Falling Petals textured impressions embossing folder.   I don't see petals but more so hearts.  This 6×6 embossing folder is perfect for scrapbook backgrounds too.   When the paper is embossed it looks vintage, elegant and has a tone of simplicity to it.  Creating a monochromatic theme increases even more the romantic look.  Especially by adding the very vanilla 1/4' satin ribbon and gold metallic thread.

The love notes framelits dies include 14 dies that are versatile for all year long projects.  I created the mini envelop and hearts with these dies.  I also used the sequins from the Cupcakes and carousels embellishment kit.  It coordinates perfectly.

The occasion catalogue is filled with so many great products and it's even better when you can get free products from the sale a bration catalogue.  On the down side, my mind has been going miles a minute so I have trouble falling asleep at night.  I guess it's a positive thing to be so inspired to create.  Does this happen to you?

Lots of layers

I have had this card laying in my studio for a while.  Trying to make it work.  It's like my new house, my home.  When you buy a house that you haven't built, you need to adapt and make it yours.  I think, I have successfully accomplished my goal with my card and my home.  Jordan always refers to our house as "fancy"! lol.  She always say:  "it might not be big mom but it's fancy!"  Actually, the week that I don't have the girls, I find it very big… But, I'm starting to get use to that after 2 years in the new house.  We also have a surprise addition to the house.  He's called Badger.  Badger was Chris's  K9 dog.  He retired from the force after being a K9 dog x 12 years.  Yes, he is 84 years old in human years.  The sad part about a working dog is if the trainer or previous trainer doesn't take him in, he would be euthanized.  To Chris, Badger was his long time partner and he could not do that.  Especially that Badger has saved his life a couple of times.  I love hearing all the stories… Therefore, I agreed to take him in.  In the beginning, I was petrified hearing all the stories from our friends.  Especially, that when we got him, initially it was only Badger and I at the house.  Let me tell you, that first week, I gave him so many treats to make sure he associated the treats as a reward and not me as the treat/reward!!!  We are now great friends.   I have taken many pictures and plan on scrapbooking them for Chris.  He is an important part of Chris's life. 

My card has a monochromatic theme going just like my house.  In my home,  there are dark floors, light walls with a hint of baja breeze.  Do you remember that Stampin'up! color? It was my ultimate favorite, back in the day.   I compare it to a sweet combo of pool party and soft sky:) I wanted to maintain the monochromatic theme in the house so everything would blend.  For this card it was all about white,gold, layers and shining bright like a diamond…

You can see the layers from this side view.  I love using dimensionals #104430 to create the layers.  I've used the dimensionals on behind the trees and wording banner.

Then came glitter and gold embossing.  I've embossed the tea lace paper doilie #129399 with iridescent ice embossing powder #101930.  Embossed one of the stamps from the peaceful pines stamp set #139728 with gold embossing powder #109129 and you will noticed that I added snowed texture to one of my trees, it's dazzling details #124117.  I love glitter! There is a great bundle that is included in the holiday catalogue:  the perfect Pines framelits dies with the peaceful pines stamp set.  You save 15% when you get the bundle #140850.

I could not resist adding a Reindeer paper clip #139643.  There are 10 in a package.  Wouldn't these look cute with Christmas pictures.  I need to work on that:)

The background was created with  the winter wonderland specialty designer series paper #139588.  It is a rich combo of whisper white, gold and basic black.  When you view the entire series, you will find it very classy:) I also added layers of the winter wonderland designer washi tape #139609, at the bottom of the card.  The all is calm, all is bright quote comes from the stamp set Wonderland #140365. It matches the paper collection of course.   And if you look at one of the first pictures, you will see that I added white 3/8" glitter ribbon since I'm all about glitter. This ribbon comes in a package of 5 yards each of gold and white ribbon. #139614.  Last but not least, I added pearls #119247.  A rule of thumb when decorating a home, you always decorate in odd numbers.  That is why my card has 3 trees and 3 pearls and 1 reindeer:)

I hope you liked my project today.  If you would like to get together with your friends and create your holiday cards, email me asap! I have a couple of spots.

My Aha! moment:)

I took out a couple of Halloween decorations out since I was so excited playing with all my Halloween goodies from the Holiday catalogue.  Then, I reconsidered…. Chris's birthday is coming very soon, actually it's on Thanksgiving this year.  I just can't take out the Halloween stuff before his birthday… It just doesn't feel right…I'm still not sure how I am going to post about him.  Some of you know how I love to scrapbook and I would sure like to incorporate him in my pages.  How can I describe Chris to you?   On social media, Chris is  like Tim the toolman Taylor's neighbor, Wilson W. Wilson Jr.  You never get to see his face on the show.  Well that is pretty much my social media life with Chris.  Ya! he's a private guy but the main reason involves his career.  With some careers social media is not a great thing… He also has my best interest at heart… Therefore, You will not get to see very much of my guy:)  Here's a little sneak peak… I do plan on putting him in my project life albums, you might not see all his body parts on my blog lol  I can count on one hand the number of years he has until retirement…. After that, it will be a different story.  He does have some serious man candy going, so I'm very sorry that I can't share:))))  It will be a very thick album since we are compatible in so many ways and already have a great deal of adventures that need to be preserved in albums:)

He didn't know it was him in the picture when I showed him.  Maybe cause he didn't have any gel in his hair.. So I don't think it's a big deal that I share here.  Plus it's the perfect "Wilson" picture.  I'm still struggling with the nick name I will call him while blogging.  If you have any ideas please share…

Back to stamping.  I created a couple of 3D treat holders.  My focus was Halloween but you can make these goodies with a completely different theme.  The more I play with my Stampin'up! products, the more I get creative.  Albert Einstein once said:  "Creativity is intelligence having fun."  I'm having a great time and struggling with Influenza so I haven't slept much this week. I had all the time in the world to think of creative projects.   A couple of days ago, I had a aha moment. not sure if the designer at Stampin'up! planned this out but the spider web dollies on p. 47 from the Holiday catalogue fits perfectly with the square pillow box thinlits dies p. 41. Isn't this awesome? I think so!

See my images below:  I cut the spider web dollies in half and it fit perfectly on the top of the square pillow box.  I also used a clear window sheet to make all my pillow boxes.  My goal was to show off the goodies in the boxes but you can use regular card stock to make them.  Different options are in the holiday catalogue on p. 41. I also love how Stampin up! created bundle deals, the pillow die has a great bundle deal.  You get 15% off when you purchase the square pillow box thinlits dies with the stamp set called a little something on p 41. I received a couple of requests for the paper copy of the catalogue. If you are in canada and want a paper copy email me HERE.

I decided to post the boxes individually so you get a better look at these.  I can't pick which one is my favorite?

Love Love Love the Happy Haunting designer series paper #139584. Especially this side of the designer paper which reminds me of burberry.

I had to do a custom pillow box for Jordan… I added chocolate in her box and her picture as well.

These make perfect Halloween treats.  And the decoration adds a touch of love to share with your family, coworkers and friends. I'm thinking of adding a basket of these at my desk at work. 

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend.  I'm off to bake pumpkin spice cookies for my gang!
