Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Special

When I went to Stampin' Up! OnStage event in April I was able to see all of the designers series paper in the new annual catalog.  I have to tell you, I was in love!  The papers are so beautiful and there is so many different designs.  I want all of them!  LOL  

I was so excited when Stampin' Up! announced their Buy 3 Get 1 FREE promotion from July 1st through the 31st.  Yes, you read that correct.  When you buy 3 designer series paper (see below the papers that are on sale) you will get to pick one out FREE!   Which one should I get?

Dollar Tree Candle Holder Directions

StampinUpIttyBittyGreetingsDollarTreeCandleHolderStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

I have received several request for the directions for the Dollar Tree candle holders that I posted in June.  If you missed the original, click HERE.   I needed to make a couple more of them, so it was perfect time to take pictures and show you how to make them.  On the above holders I used the Nature's Poem designer series paper, which is available in the buy 3 get one FREE promotion.  See all the details at the bottom of this post.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Calypso Coral or Tranquil Tide

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" score at 1 3/8" on each side
  • cut at 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" score at 3/4" on each side
  • cut at 2 5/8" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Nature's Poem designer series paper

  • cut at 2 3/8 x 3 1/2"
  • cut three at 1 1/4" x 2 5/8"

This project may look hard, but it is actually pretty easy.  Here are the directions on how to make this candle holder.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Dollar Tree Candle Holder, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Dollar Tree Candle Holder, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

On the 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock score all sides at 1 3/8" on all sides and fold on your score lines.  Cut on the score line from the edge of the paper to the score line.  You will do this on two sides of the paper (across from each other).  I also cut a little bit to the side of the score line off to make it easier to attach it to cardstock and make sure it was straight.  I used Tear and Tape on the tabs, but you can use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue too.  Fold up the sides and tabs and create the box for the bottom of the holder. 

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Dollar Tree Candle Holder, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

On the 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" cardtock score at 3/4" on all sides.  Before you do any cutting you will want to take a framelit from the Layering Circle Framelits and cut it out.  This is going to create the hole for the candle to sit in.  After cutting it out you will do the same steps as above to create the box.  This will fit inside of the box you made above.  However, do not put it in the box yet, as you need to do a couple more steps first.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Dollar Tree Candle Holder, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

For the back of the box you are going to take the 2 5/8" x 8 1/2" piece and score it at 4 1/4".  Once scored fold the paper and half and glue it together.  I used snail adhesive on this step, but you can use whatever adhesive you have available.  I then put Tear and Tape on the bottom of the piece and adhered to the INSIDE of the box.  This is going to be the back of your box.  You want to make sure you put it in the inside of the box, not the outside.  

Now it is time to add your designer series paper on to the section you just did (the back piece) and on the sides and front of the bottom box.  Add the section that holds the candle and you are almost finished.

Now you can decorate it any way you would like.  I used the Happy Birthday greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set along with the Pop of Petals stamp set.  The Pop of Petals has a coordinating Four Petal Flower Punch which is also available as a bundle.  I love that you are able to get the Pop of Petals stamp set and the four petal Flower punch as a bundle and save 10%!  To punch out the sentiment I used the Classic Label punch.  I added Rhinestones to the center of the flower and on the sentiment.

Daisy Delight Thank You (CT#156)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Daisy Delight stamp set #143669, Daisy Punch #143713, Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper #146902, CASEing Tuesday #156, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Today I made this card on Stampin' Up! notecards instead of the normal size card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").   I wanted to make my card for CASEing Tuesday as my thank you cards for orders this month.  On our inspiration card this week, was made with the Animal Expedition designer series paper.  I wanted to use the same paper, but I wanted a total different look.  I made this card girlie with the pink and green paper in the same pack and the daisy punch.  

Here is a picture of our inspiration card:

To make this card you will need the following products:

Stampin' Up! Notecards and Envelopes in Whisper White

Cardstock:

Berry Burst

  • cut at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"

Lemon Lime Twist

  • scrap piece for 1/2" circle

Whisper White

  • cut at 2" x 4"

Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper

  • cut at 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • cut at 1/2" x 3 1/8"
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 5"

I stamped the Thank You in the Basic Gray ink and the leaves I used the Lemon Lime Twist ink.  Both of the stamps are from the Daisy Delight stamp set.  I used the bone folder to curl the edges of the daisy and then put a Stampin' Dimensional underneath to raise it up off the card.  To finish off the flower I added Wink of Stella to the Lemon Lime Twist circle in the middle of the flower. 

The two pieces of designer series paper I cut the ends to make them look like banners.  The edge of the top banner lines up with the middle of the bottom banner.  Then the white paper is lined up with the center of the gray designer series paper piece.  

The Animal Expedition designer series paper is part of the Buy 3 get 1 FREE promotion going on until July 31st.  See all the details at the end of this post.

I did it!  I unplugged for a whole week and I have to say, it was wonderful.  I was able to truly enjoy our time together and enjoy the magic of Disney World.  I have to say, we had such a wonderful time.  We laughed, made great memories, enjoyed each other and were so blessed during the whole vacation.  God gave us so many blessing through out the week, that I couldn't possibly name all of them.  

Here are a couple of pictures from the beginning of our trip.  The first one is of Mark, Emily and myself on the plane heading to Disney.

IMG_3212

This picture is of the girls trying on hats in our resort gift shop and then of all of us on our first day at the parks, Magic Kingdom.

IMG_3255

We are all so blessed to be a part of each other lives and to be able to call each other family.  I love all of them so much.  For those who don't know, these are my angels we call our Grand Randall's.  People think that Todd is my son, which is funny because I would have had to have him when I was 14 years old.  LOL We love them as if they were our own children, their children are our grandkids.  Our girls call Todd their brother and Kumiko their sister and they do the same to our girls.  Emily and Erica always said they wanted a brother, now they have one. 

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great week!

Healing Hugs and Itty Bitty Greetings

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp set #146530, Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Tufted Embossing Folder #146335, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

When I made my card for Patti, my downline, I loved how the Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather colors looked with the color white.  So, when I began designing cards for Stamp Camp I knew I wanted to make a card with those colors.  I had a customer request anniversary cards for one of our cards this month and I thought this card was perfect for that.  

I used the Healing Hugs and Itty Bitty Greetings stamp sets and the Tufted embossing folder.  The Healing Hugs stamp set is one of the DistINKtive stamps.  These stamps are a little different than our normal stamps in that they are totally flat.  You stamp them the same way as all of our other stamps, but they give you all the different lays of color.  This stamped image is absolutely beautiful.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp set #146530, Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set #146667, Tufted Embossing Folder #146335, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I did learn a trick with these stamps to get a great image. This is one time I was glad I was interrupted.  I had been struggling with getting the perfect image and was ready to give up.   I had inked up my stamp one more time when Mark came down to my stampin studio to ask me a question.  It wasn't maybe 15-20 seconds later that I stamped the image and guess what?  It came out perfect!  So, when you ink up your stamp flip it over and you will see the little bubbles pop, wait maybe 15 seconds,  and then stamp your image.  It is so much prettier when you do this than when you stamp immediately after inking up your stamp.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Whisper White Thick

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Whisper White

  • cut at 1" x 4"
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4" for the flower and leaves
  • cut at 4" x  5 1/4"

I cut out the flower and leaves with the awesome Paper Snips and colored the flower with Wink of Stella.

Today is a sad day as we are heading back home from our week long vacation at Disney.  I can't wait to share with you some of the highlights.  I know we are going to be totally exhausted, but it is a good exhausted.  If you get a chance I would love it if you could say a prayer for all of us traveling.  Erica will be traveling again by herself.  It will be hard to say good bye, especially since her flight is earlier than ours.  She will have to go to the airport by herself, which is going to be so hard.  Thank you for your prayers!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 5" for the ice cream cones

Rooted In Nature and Flourishing Phrases CT#155

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature stamp set #146482, Flourishing Phrases stamp set #141534, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinsraper.com, Joyce Whitman

I had to make another sympathy card for one of my aunts as my uncle passed away unexpectedly.  I don't like having to make these type of cards,  I don't think anyone does, but when I do I try to make them as a reflection of the person who passed.  My aunt and uncle were suppose to go spend the weekend at the campground with all of their family, but God had different plans for them.   They spent the weekend together, just not in the place they thought they would.  

For this card I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and used the sentiment in the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  As I was making this card, I kept thinking of my uncles smile and laugh.  I will always remember that about him.  Great memories!

Here is my inspiration card for this weeks CASEing Tuesday

34199907_10213552857790195_6254417666623143936_n

The card I made this week is an easy design that you could make for any occasion. 

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cardstock:

Crumb Cake

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Very Vanilla

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" for the trees
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

To make the trees I used 3 of our  Stampin Write Markers.  I first inked the trees with the Shaded Spruce marker and then dabbed the tip of the Mossy Meadow marker randomly on top of the Shaded Spruce ink.  The trunks of the trees were colored with the Early Espresso marker.  A tip I have for you is when you use markers to color your stamps, make sure you huff on your stamp before you stamp your image on your paper.  You need to make sure your ink hasn't dried on your stamp as it takes longer to color them with markers than an ink pad. 

On the Crumb Cake card base I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the leaf images.  I was trying to figure out what to use to make the grass on the bottom and then remembered there was a grass stamp in the Enjoy Life stamp set.  I used the Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the grass.  To decorate my envelope I stamped one of the trees on the bottom left hand corner.

I hope I don't have to make another sympathy cards for a while.  2 in a month is more than enough. 

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

I used the Daisy punch to punch out two flowers from Daffodil Delight cardstock and added a 1/2" circle in Melon Mambo cardstock.  I added Wink of Stella on the center of the flower. I popped up the daisy with Stampin Dimensionals.

For the sentiment I used the Melon Mambo Stampin Write marker to color in the "hello" from the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set which  stamped in Stazon ink.  I cut it out with the Layering Oval Framelits and popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals.

Minnie is all packed and ready to go!! Her note today said " Tomorrow you go to Disney and I can't wait to see you! Make sure you keep up the good behavior!! Make sure everything is packed!" This has been so fun to do! I think the kids have enjoyed it too.

 Last weekend I had my quarterly scrapbooking class and our themes were summer, beach and 4th of July.  This layout is so easy and you can change where you put the mats for your pictures so many different ways.  I love to watch and see how my attendees make their pages their own.  

Robin found a page similar to this on Pinterest and we both loved it.  Thank you, to who ever was the first designer of this page, for sharing with everyone.  

To make this project you will need the following products:

Tomorrow is the day!!!  We are so excited that we get to go to Disney tomorrow with the grand Randall's.  The kids are going to have such a hard time sleeping this evening.  Heck, I am going to have a hard time sleeping.  I am thinking the adults might be more excited than the kids.  

If you get a chance if you could say a little pray for all of us traveling tomorrow.  Especially for Erica as she is traveling by herself for the first time.  She will be meeting us in Orlando.  

Here is Day 7 of Disney countdown with Minnie Mouse.

Minnie was so tired for all her hard work that she needed coffee to start her day off.  She didn't even have enough energy to write a note to us.  One of the little ones said, "Joycie, she loves coffee just like you!"  Smart kid!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a great day!

I thought Mickey and myself wishing you a Happy 4th of July was very appropriate this year.  I hope you have a blessed day celebrating the birth of our country.  

Tomorrow I will have a 4th of July scrapbook page to share with you.  It will be perfect for your pictures from celebrating and being with family and friends today. 

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a blessed day!

Healing Hugs (CT#154)

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs stamp set #146530, Touches of Texture stamp set #143251, Decorative Ribbon Border Punch #143721, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

One of my team members, Patti, celebrated her Stampin' Up! anniversary last month and I know she loves the color purple.  I wanted a beautiful card to let her know how blessed I am to have her on my Joyful Butterflies team and to wish her a Happy Anniversary.   

The Healing Hugs stamp set is one of the DistINKtive stamps in the annual catalog.  What's unique about the DistINKtive stamps is they are totally flat. You get this beautiful detail from them, just stamping the way you do with all of our other stamps.  The above picture shows the detail of the stamp.  I wish the picture would show how beautiful it looks in person.  I know you would love it even more if you saw it in person.

The CASEing Tuesday card this week was a perfect layout for this card.  Here is our inspiration card:

34319470_10213552813549089_2309122328413339648_n

On the base of the card, Highland Heather cardstock, I used an image from the Touches of Texture stamp set and stamped it with the Gorgeous Grape ink.  For the border on the left hand side of the Whisper White paper I punched out a strip of the Gorgeous Grape paper with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  I then used the Tufted Embossing Folder on the Whisper White paper and added a thin strip of Gorgeous Grape cardstock.  

I stamped the flower with the Highland Heather ink and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink.  I added Wink of Stella to the flower and 3 large Rhinestones to give the card a little bit of bling.  Patty loves bling, so I wanted to make sure I got it on the card somewhere.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Gorgeous Grape

  • cut at 1" x 5"

On the inside of the card and on the envelope I stamped a flower.  Remember, never send out a naked card.  LOL

Over the weekend I didn't get a chance to post the pictures of Countdown Minnie, so here are the ones we have as of yesterday.  Time is going so fast and I have so much to get down before we leave.  Why is it, you work twice as hard before you leave for vacation and twice as hard when you get back? 

CountdowntoDisneyStampinScrapperJoyceWhitmanCollage

The kids are having so much fun coming in each day to see where Minnie is and what her note says to them.  Emily has been such a blessing in all of this, as she has been doing all of the work,  I am just taking the pictures.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a terrific week!
