Well, today is an exciting day, but it started off with a bit of a big BANG!  That sound was the sound of all of Stampin’ Up’s servers crashing meaning not only could I not get my launch day order in, but I can’t even call in and chat with the fabulous demonstrator support folks.  But, while we wait for the servers to come back up – don’t worry I’ll post here and on my Facebook page when they are back – I can still share a couple project ideas and the catalogs so you can work on your wishlists … Read More

JenniferCards, Valentines Day0 Comments

Friday was my day for card classes, I had one in the morning and one in the evening… which was lots of fun, because each class had it’s own personality and style.  But the thing that is always interesting to me when I’m running my classes is to see which cards are the most popular from the group.  I did 3 Valentine’s cards in the morning and then one repeat and 2 more cards in the evening.  When I was planning my cards for the evening class, I decided to pick one from the morning to share as the Valentine’s … Read More

JenniferCards, classes, Clean & Simple, Valentines Day0 Comments

Anyone ready for some Valentine’s?  I had so much fun working with the new You Plus Me stamp set and Stacked with Love paper stack (LOVE that you can get them in a BUNDLE!) that I just had to put together a class showing a number of fun different options you can do using just a few supplies.  Right now I’m up to 8 cards, so that is the offical count for the class… but I have a few more in the works and I’ll make sure to add them as bonus ideas to the instruction set as I finish … Read More

JenniferDisplay Board Samples, Home Decor/3D, Product Shares, Valentines Day0 Comments

You’ve probably seen my projects and others using Seasonally Scattered and many of them were focused on the Thanks and Merry sentiments.  You know, because they fit so well for fall and for winter.  But before the stamp set disappears in a couple days (last day to snag it is Jan 5th!) I wanted to share this project I created for the Convention Display boards this summer. You may have seen this project on my blog from a long while back: Seasonally Scattered Love Card blog post And with that card I did heat embossing and sponging, but I had … Read More

Wonderful Word Bubbles for a I Love You Card

JenniferBig Shot, Cards, Die Cutting, Valentines Day2 Comments

Today I have to share a card that I created for a set of Pictogram Punches stamp set focused display board cards for our Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration convention board.  I knew I had to get this set when I first saw it in the catalog, but when I had to create 4 different cards AND make sure they were cute enough to have on display next to some other very talented ladies… well, I knew I had to get creative.  And somehow this came out: YAY!  Isn’t it a fun card?  I often feel like I’m in a design rut … Read More

Word Bubbles Valentine or Spring Card–you choose!

JenniferCards, Valentines Day0 Comments

I was working on finishing out the last card for Stamp Club tonight and I wanted to do something Valentines-y.  So I was looking at my new stamps and just HAD to pull out my Just Sayin’ word bubbles stamp set and put something together.  This is what I came up with for the first sample: Now, I know not everyone needs a Valentine’s Day card at this point, so I wanted to give them some options for what they made (plus I didn’t have enough of the patterned paper for everyone to make this exact card) so I created … Read More
