A new Idea Book and a sweet deal!

JenniferPromotions0 Comments

The Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog is here!  It is full of some fantasic new products.  I filled out my wishlist earlier this week and was amazed at how long it was!  Of course there are some great new stamp sets but it was the accessories section that really caught my eye.  I’m loving the new designer paper (the prints in the color family designer series papers are so much better than in the last catalog!), plus there are tons of new ribbons in many sizes and colors up to 1 1/4″ thick!  I have to say though, I think … Read More

A couple card ideas

JenniferCards0 Comments

Last night I was super excited to receive my new Simply Sent elements package from the new catalog.  I was all ready to show you how much you get in these packages and how quick and easy the cards were when I realized that I had left my camera at work! 🙁  So, until I can get those cards posted, I thought I would put up a few cards I created at a workshop last month.   Hope you like them!  Both designs were by my Mom Kathy Thisted, another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  This is a pretty straightforward card but lots … Read More

Here comes the Big Shot

JenniferTools0 Comments

I think one of the biggest announcements at this years convention was the partnering of Stampin’ Up! with Sizzix for not only the offering of the Big Shot die-cut system but also exclusive Stampin’ Up! dies.  If you haven’t used a die-cutting machine before, let me tell you how easy and how useful they are to use.  All it takes is putting the metal die with the image you want on the platform, place your paper over the die, turn the crank, and you now have a perfectly cut out flower/envelope/letter/etc.  They are perfect for scrapbooking, projects (like the templates for … Read More

Mounting your stamps

JenniferTechniques1 Comment

I recently discovered that while I had been scrapbooking and stamping a lot, I had a lot of stamp sets that I had never mounted. For those of you who have never bought stamps from Stampin’ Up! before, let me share with you what to expect. You will recieve a plastic storage box with lots of wood blocks, a page of stamp image stickers, and a sheet of foam mounted rubber. The idea being that you can put the image sticker where you want on one side of the wood block, and the rubber where you want on the other … Read More

A new card for a new catalog

JenniferCards0 Comments

I just finished my first card with the new treats I got on preorder from the Fall/Winter idea book & catalog.  With so many great images and colors, I didn’t know where to begin.  But then I started sifting through the new Bella Rose Designer Paper and saw the red background and it just built from there.  This was a design as you go layout and of course when I was done I thought of a ton of other things I could add but I had already glued things down.  Oh well, I’ll save those ideas for another card. What … Read More

Trying out a new blog

JenniferUncategorized0 Comments

After years of attending Stampin’ Up! workshops, I’ve finally taken the pluge as a SU demonstrator! They gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse – meet new people, share your love of stamping, get discounts, and even earn money while doing it. I have to say, I loved scrapbooking and card making before, but after looking at all of the examples and experiencing the support and enthusiasm of the SU family, I’m even more excited. My plan is to use this blog as a place to post my samples, experiments, and let you know all of the great promotions as … Read More
