Stampin' Up! Kits

But they're not really a kit in the sense that there are directions for making projects. You take the products and use them to make your own designs. The only thing you really need besides what's in the medley … [Read more...] about Beautiful Blues in New Papers!
Aloha, all! While I was in Northern Minnesota, at a cabin on one of the state's 10,000 lakes, I got to do some stamping. With all there was to do for all the outdoor types up here, I tended to like to stay out of the sun and away from the mosquitos. So, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I brought along some Stampin' Up! Supplies, hoping I’d have time to make something of my own. And yesterday, … [Read more...] about I Finally Made Some Cards!
Aloha, all! I cannot believe it's already Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend!

So this is my last chance to promote … [Read more...] about Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza – Until Tomorrow!

Aloha, all! I just have to get started on some of my April projects - yikes, it's already the 10th!

Aloha, all! Today some of my friends and customers got together for a Stampin' Up! session to make the fabulous calendar that was the project in the December 2015 My Paper Pumpkin kit. What a lot of fun and laughs we had going through all 12 months of designs in the kit. Back when I first received my December kit, I knew right … [Read more...] about Fun With the December Paper Pumpkin Kit!
Aloha, all! I truly am still getting used to the idea that Stampin' Up! Kits are really as good as they are. In the early days of kits, I guess they felt a bit chintzy to me. But not any more! So I did not hesitate at all to ask a few of my friends and customers to join me in making cards from the To You and Yours Shaker Cards Project Kit. In fact, I … [Read more...] about Trying Out the Shaker Card Kit with Friends!
Aloha, all! Just as I was about to spend a crafting day designing and crafting Thanksgiving cards, several events occurred that meant that I needed some quick all occasion cards. The "quick" was because I don't have that much time left to be making Thanksgiving cards, so I need to get to it! The perfect place to go for … [Read more...] about An All Occasion Day!
Aloha, all! When I bought the Stampin' Up! Stamp Set, Watercolor Words, I really only focused on the greetings and sentiments in the set. But yesterday I wanted to make a card that had a wreath of flowers, yet wouldn't be too delicate. I wanted a card with some bold color, and the wreath stamps I have just weren't going to work. I then proceeded to look … [Read more...] about Watercolor Words and Wishes!
