The new eclipse technique

Have you seen the new creative trend lately?  If you like to go on Pinterest, there are many samples for this new eclipse technique.  I loved the look and decided to try it out myself.  The demonstrators on my team that attended my monthly team meeting in September tried it as well.  They loved it.  I gave them a challenge to show me their versions and await their sample before we chose a winner!! The best card gets a prize!!!  I'll get my girls to pick out the winner since I'm sure the samples will all be amazing.  I am blessed with such talented, sweet demonstrators on my team.  Love to host those monthly meetings.  I anticipate for that monthly date night with these girls. If you would like to try the eclipse technique you can host a party with me or follow the steps below.  Here is a glimpse of the final product.  I used the hostess merry patterns stamp set that we have on promotion.  You can earn it for FREE too, just ask me for your hostess code and compile orders in September and October.   You can combine both months too:)  See the promotions details HERE.

Step 1

Stamp images on a piece of card stock.

I used cherry cobbler and old olive ink with the hostess stamp set Merry Patterns.

Step 2

Chose a word and place the Large letters framelits #141712 on your piece of stamped card stock.  Note you could do this technique with the large numbers framelits as well #140622.  The trick is that your letters need to be big to have an amazing affect.  The large letters in the annual catalogue are perfect for that.

Step 3

Pass your letters and card stock image in the big shot machine. Set aside the letters and adhere your card stock like the image below.

Step 4

This is an important step!  To have the best effect use the foam adhesive strips.  Those are thicker and will provide height to your letters.  If you use regular dimensionals, the letters won't have as much of the eclipse effect.

Step 5

Adhere the foam adhesive letters to the card, where they were cut out.  Shift them slightly to the right, just a "touch".  This creates that eclipse shadow.  And voila!  In my card below, I stamped the greeting "Merry Christmas" with the archival basic black ink.

I hope you enjoyed this new technique!   Don't forget to ask for your hostess code to earn this beautiful stamp set for FREE.  And if you shop with me, I have a VIP customer perk, you get to accumulate points for FREE products!!  Happy stamping!

Giving for a good cause

To show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Paper Pumpkin is going PINK…  or at least the October boxes are!!!  Stampin'Up! will donate $1 for every active Paper Pumpkin Subscriber + An additional $1 for every new subscriber to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

What is paper pumpkin?  It's a fully designed project kit that arrives in a delightful box (PINK for October if you sign up before October 10th) filled with stamps, ink, paper and all the accessories you need to complete your projects.  Everything ready to go….It's the perfect gift for family and friends.  It is also the perfect start if you are a beginner or if you don't have a lot of supplies at home.  It is also a great kit for the expert stampers because you can tweak it to your taste. 

Here is a sample of the August kit, Chalk it Up to Love.  This is my simple version.  I copied the project exactly like the instructions that came with the content. So it's simple and easy and you learn new techniques along the way.  This kit came with all the supplies, stamp set and ink to make 3 boxes, 6 cards and 6 envelopes.  I keep all the projects made in a box and when I have an event and need a quick card for weddings, birthdays etc. I go directly in that box.  Also, when the projects are 3D, I will give these as hostess gifts and incorporate a treat.

The kits come all wrapped up.  It's a surprise to get your new kit every month.  You never know what is coming…. If you are a pinterest lover, there is a special spot for all the paper pumpkin kits and you get to view different projects.  Check it out HERE.

Wouldn't these boxes make a great hostess gift? When the boxes contain 3 D projects, I love to  give them to friends, teachers or even use them as pillow gift for family and friends that are coming for sleepovers.  It's also a great hostess gift to give to friends when invited for dinner.  I would add chocolate to mine.  As for all the cards, I placed them in a box.   When the girls need a birthday card for their parties or if I need a sympathy card or a wedding card and I'm in a rush, I just pick one out of the box.   The bonus is you get to keep the inks and stamp sets to make many more projects…

Here's a picture from Jordan, sewing on her card for her friend's birthday party.  She made the card on her own from one of the kits. It's from the March kit 2015 SEW YOU. A great way for her to learn how to sew.


Then mama stepped in and tweaked the kit to make it a wowser for the birthday girl…

 

So you can see how fun these kits are for new, beginners to expert stampers..

There are two simple ways to subscribe: 

PAY AS YOU GO  Just sign up once for $24.95 a month (shipping included) and a new kit is delivered to your door each month.

or

PREPAID SUBSCRIPTION  A great way to get a subscription yourself, or give one to a friend! Pay in advance and save money (shipping included)

1 month #137858 $24.95

3 month #137859 $74.85

6 month #137860 $143.70 (save $1 per month)

12 month #137861 $275.40 (save $2 per month) Bonus you can get hostess benefits, ask me how?

Please give it a try, if you sign up before October 10th you are giving to a good cause.  So many woman are affected by breast cancer.  I am surrounded by them.  I have a team mate in my downline, a nurse coworker who is 30 years old battling her second round.  You can read up about her situation HERE.  I have 3 daughters and want to make sure they grow old and stay healthy…Together, we will make a difference!

If you would like to raise money for a great cause, Email me!

Enjoy your day, Hugs xo

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!

If The Broom Fits, Ride It…

I am truly blessed to have received emails, texts, posts about my return.  I've been questioning myself for a while now as to where I wanted to go with my stamping?  So many things have changed in the last 4 years.  I've learned my lesson: no matter how hard things are regardless of the situation, we should not give up on our dreams, on the things we love, no matter what the circumstances might be.  I guess it's easier to say this now as I'm not on " survival mode". I loved hearing your stories and how some of you were able to bounce right back into things.  I loved seeing the friends that I have made through out the years with the best paper crafting paper company, Stampin'up! I loved attending convention and meeting people like Catherine.  She said to me, "you should get back into it, I've sold so many products because of your ideas and creations, you have a unique style of stamping."  To me this meant a lot and Catherine, those few words at Convention really made me think things through.    We create and post on our personal blogs, facebook business page, instagram…. And sometimes, I've questioned myself, is someone reading my posts lol… Chris got home after yesterday's creation and he said to me:  "your creations are even better in person than the pic you sent me, you're pretty talented"  See, he doesn't know this side of me yet…:) He doesn't know what I mean when I talk about passion of the demonstrator friends that I have made over the years, the clients, the downline, the incentive trips and how spoil and appreciated we are and best of all, the staff at Stampin'up! I am going to push hard at finding myself in the creative world.  There are a few hiccups but I'm going to get through them..  I guess I'm doing well cause I stamped again!!!

There is something about this set that makes me want to squeal!!! I just think there are so many possibilities.  And the best part is: it doesn't need to be a Halloween Project! I love monochromatic themes.  Layering a card creates dimension, texture. I also think that decorating my envelop with the matching designer paper makes the recipient feel special.  Nothing like a hand stamped card. Most of the items are from the Holiday Catalogue.  Even the Halloween Haunting designer paper series from page 47.  It's Halloween paper but since it's double sided, the genius who created it made it one side Halloweenish and the other not so much. So we can use the designer paper all year long. 

 

Instead of inking If the broom fits stamp set, I embossed it with the black embossing powder. I love how it creates that dept in the card.

The little star was made with the boo to you framelits dies. It's so cute.  Check item list below.

I also thought it would be a great idea that you see an updated picture of the girls since it has been 4 years…  This picture was taken on the first day of school.  Megan is in grade 10, Lauren grade 9 and Jordan grade 5.  I have 2 girls in High school already!!! I love them dearly and can't wait for them to come home tonight.  My week is starting today:) The joys of shared custody…

Enjoy your weekend.  I already have something posted for tomorrow.  If you would like to see cute packages, you might want to stop by on my blog… You can also follow me on instagram @simply_kim3k.

Work in Progress

A few days ago, I showed you my Holiday Advent Calendar, if you missed it you can view it HERE.  Well, I decided to adventure myself in completing a Halloween Advent Calendar.  Here is the first step, you will want to come back later this week to see the end result.  I am planning on making lot's of Halloween treats that we can display in our Home.  Plus we are hosting a Halloween Party and I also want to work on our invitation.  I do promise to show you.


Decorating my Halloween Advent Calendar:

Step 1:  Apply Tombow glue on the Chunky Frame.

Step 2:  Apply 1 sheet of Pick Your Poison designer paper.  I have to admit it brakes my heart knowing that most of this designer paper will be covered with the Peekaboo frames.  But the outcome will be wonderful with the 31 days of Halloween.

Step 3:  Sand the designer paper even to the frame so it doesn't overflow on the sides.

Step 4:  Cut out 4×4 opening with Exacto knife.

Step 5:  Apply pick your poison Quick Accents around the 4×4 opening.

Actually, l love the frame itself, but when I started applying the 31 days of Halloween, I knew it's going to be even better.

Supplies used to make my Advent Calendar :

Clearance Rack:  Chunky Frame # 117599

Card stock and paper: Quick Accents Pick your Poison #124263, Pick your Poison designer Paper #124001

Adhesive:  Tombow glue #110755

I'm hoping to have it all completed by tomorrow, especially if my goodies from the clearance rack arrive on time today:)

Happy Shopping and don't forget to check out the clearance rack!
