Teacher Appreciation and Marquee Love (Sneak Peek!)

Did you know it's Teacher Appreciation Week? I hope you have found time to give the teachers in your life a little love. :-) We always make a big deal out of this week. I like to send something in each day for the girls' teachers. Yesterday, I sent a vase of flowers with a beautiful handmade tag... And I forgot to take pictures!!! Whaaa! 

But, today I am showing you the card I made for "gift card" day as well as today's gift tag. 

I took the opportunity to use the stamp set we got at On Stage called Marquee Messages. It will be int he new catalog June 1st. It's perfect, right? I used big bold colors: Melon Mambo, Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight. 

I stamped it several times on each color of cardstock and then hand cut each separate piece out. I adhered them back together on the image stamped white. 

Each one is a bit different.

I also used Writing Notes Background stamp and Work of Art for some of the doodles in the back. 

Today I sent in a gift bag with a fancy clipboard, mouse pad and binder clips from Hobby Lobby. 

I used the same stamp, but this time, I stamped it on Watercolor paper and painted it with the Aquapainter. I think I like the paper piecing option better... ;-) 

Check back later this week for some of the other things we sent in to show their wonderful teachers how much we love them!

Sweet Stampede Sale A Bration and Giant Flower Tutorial

On Friday night, I had a wonderful event at my house. It was our Sweet Stampede Sale A Bration! I had challenged my team with some recruiting and sales challenges at the beginning got Sale A Bration and each of them who reached their goals were invited over for a fun night of crafting. 

When they arrived, they each a special gift bag waiting for them. 

Inside their bag wwere two packages of cardstock (in colors they had chosen), a silicon mat and a Bone Folder with their name on it! 

I also made these cute flower tags in their cardstock color choices to attach to their bags. I cut their names on my Silhouette and attitude it with the fine too glue pen to the front of the bag. 

We also had a Nacho Bar!

And some Sangria! Yum!

Once we had eaten, we got to crafting'! I showed them how to make these beautiful Giant paper Flowers. They all looked so different!

  We had so much fun! I am so grateflu for my team's hardwork and dedication. All of my long distance downline who earned this reward will be getting their goodies this week in the mail!

Many of you have seen these flowers on my wall behind me when I make videos. Ive tried to keep it quiet until this event because I wanted my downline to be surprised!! 

When I posted about this on Facebook, everyone was asking "How did you make them!" So, I made a quick video this morning!

Here is how I attached them to the wreath.

Oh My Goodies Double Treat Cup Holder (Video) Fancy Friday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the April Fancy Friday Blog hop! 
This month's theme is anything but a card- right up my alley! I love making treat holders! This month, I designed a treat cup holder! I have seen something similar on Pinterest using products I don't have, so I decided to design one using Stampin' Up products!

These treat holders hold small treat cups that are sometimes called "Jello Shot Cups." Ha! I purchased them online and you can find a link at the end of this post. They make a great little snack sized treat holder!

I used the retiring Oh My Goodies and Deco Labels Framelits to create the tag here along with my favorite Shine On DSP. 

This one features the Shine on DSP without cardstock. I found it wasn't as sturdy as the cardstock, so I definitely like using cardstock first and then adding DSP panels. 

The Oval Punches are retiring too! 

This one holds three cups! Don't you just love the "ombre" look of this candy! 
 Check out my video to see where they are from. 

Oh look, my "Apple of My Eye" strawberry...again! Ha! Once I find something I like, I use it ALOT!! 
But doesn't it look fab with that giant Watermelon Wonder bow behind it? 

Ok, so now you need to make these, right? Just in time for Teacher Appreciation!

Suite Sayings

Good morning everyone! 

I realized yesterday that I never showed you this month's Stamp Club card project! We make three projects, and one is always a card. This month's card featured the Suite Sayings stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. I am happy to report that this set is carrying over to the new catalog! Yay! It's a GREAT set to have in your collection. It has really cute and fun useful sentiments. 

We also used my favorite DSP, Shine On. It's so versatile, don't you think? 

I have a new group of Stamp Club to Go beginning in May. You will get your own SPIRAL BOUND copy of this catalog! Woot! 

You can read all the details regarding Stamp Club To Go here. 
Email me if you have any questions or if you are ready to join!

A Little Smile

Hello everyone! I have had lots of questions about getting the new catalog. It's not available online until June 1 (the first day you can order from it!) Stampin' Up Demos (me) can begin order the catalogs the first week of May. I will be mailing them out mid may to everyone who has ordered from me in the last six months for free. If you are a member of my Stamp Club To Go, you get one that is spiral bound! 

If you don't qualify for a free one, not worries! It's still free, I just ask that you pay the shipping. I will be mailing them via Priority Mail and the cost is $6.80. Email me to let m know you'd like one! 

Today I have another card featuring a fun retiring stamp set. this one has NEVER been used! When I opened the box, it wasn't even mounted. Sad! 
I also used a sneak peek product from the new catalog. Can you tell what it is? The Scallop Square- it's part of the new square Framelits! The stamp set is called A Little Smile. The DSP is from Farmer's Market and Go Wild
I also used the 2 1/2" Circle Punch to punch out just the sentiment from this stamp. This is retiring too! Lastly, I used the It's My Party Enamel Dots to finish off the design. And yes, those are retiring too. :-)

Sea Street

So have you checked out the retired List?
 Lots of things are already sold out, but stamps are guaranteed till the end of May. 

I'm going to be highlighting stamp sets that I love over the next six weeks as we near the end of this catalog cycle. Today, I am focusing on Sea Street! This stamp set has been a favorite since it came out. I even got it early back in 2014 so I could demo it on our incentive trip. So, it holds a special place in my heart for sure. 

This is the one I made last week for next month's Simply Beautiful Card Class.

And here are some I made in the past. 
This one also features the retiring World Map Background Stamp. 

This one features the past stamp sets Sweetie Pie Faces, Woodgrain and Hip notes, and sadly they are long gone...but you could easily subsitute the woodgrain embossing folder and other sentiments. 

And this is the cutie I demoed on our Allure Incentive trip back in 2014. 

You can access the Retired List here
Make sure you get what you want before it's GONE for good!
The current catalogs are good through May 31st, 
but all tools and non stamp items are only available "while supplies last."
