Happy Hump Day!  Where has this week gone?  Somewhere in this week I have lost a day already and it is only Wednesday.  My mom always told me the older you get the faster time goes.  Boy, was she right!  I hate to see how fast time goes in 20 years.  

For my make and takes at my open house, I wanted super simple cards but they needed to highlight some of our new products.  These are the two cards that I created.  

The card on the left in the picture above is featuring the Delightful Daisy stamp set and punch.  This is the punch that has been so popular that we haven't been able to order it, because they ran out.  I knew this set would be a hit, but I didn't think it would be this big of one and neither did Stampin' Up!  They had 10,000 of them in stock when preorder started for the demonstrators.  Well, we loved it so much that we ordered 7,200 of them in just the first two weeks!!! That is amazing.  Although, this is a good problem to have - people want your product so much you sell out.  This doesn't surprise me at all with this catalog.  I think it is the best one yet. Hopefully, it will be in stock next week!

The card on the right is highlighting the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and I paired it with the Pretty Label Punch (this also has a coordinating stamp set), the Stitched Shaped Framelits and the 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in the Berry Burst color.

On both of the cards I wanted to also use some of our beautiful, and I mean beautiful designer series paper.  Wow, is all I can say about the papers in this catalog.  I didn't know which one to create with first! On the daisy card I used the paper, Delightful Daisy DSP, that coordinates with the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy Punch.  Don't you love how everything goes together!  

The Happy Birthday card has the new Fresh Florals DSP Stack.  Does this paper look familiar?  This same design of paper was in our last annual catalog and was such a big hit that Stampin' Up! brought it back in our 2017-2019 In Colors.  

Here are the cards individually so you can see them better.  I have the directions under each of the cards.

Tranquil Tulips

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Tranquil Tulips #143767, 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon-Powder Pink #144134, desgined by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Have you seen the new hostess stamp set called Tranquil Tulips?  This was one of my top ten picks for the new catalog.  If you missed this post click HERE to see it.   There are so many color combinations you could do with this stamp set and so many different combinations with the flowers. 

One of the first things I do when I am trying to decide if I want to purchase a stamp set is to see how many cards can I make off the top of my head.  If I can't make 3 then I usually don't by it.  Now, there have definitely been excepting, like I am in total love with the set or I have the perfect card in mind for a particular occasion.  When I saw this set, I knew the possibilities were endless.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Berry Burst Cardstock #144243

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

Powder Pink Cardstock #144244

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock #144245

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" this is for the inside of the card

There is a stamp in this set that has 3 stems connected and that is what I used for this card.  The flowers are created with 2 steps and then you add the little lines.  I stamped the first layer of the flowers with Powder Pink Ink and then with Berry Burst.  To make the little lines (I don't know the proper term for them) I used Early Espresso ink. 

The leaves are created with 2 of the stamps in the set in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I stamped a flower on the inside of the card along with my envelope.  To finish off the card I used our beautiful 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon in Powder Pink and wrapped it around the top two layers.  Then I added just a little bit of Wink of Stella on the Berry Burst section of the flowers.  You can see it better in the picture below.

We are having a wonderful time in Traverse City seeing all of my family.  We got into town on Wednesday afternoon and spent time with my mom and sister.  It was so good to see them.  You don't realize how much you miss someone until you see them again.  My mom looks fabulous.  Last year, when I came to see her, she had just had hip replacement surgery.  She was in a rehabilitation center, which was very hard to see.  I know it wasn't anything serious, but to see your mom in a hospital bed is a little unnerving.  I hope I don't ever see that again. 

Yesterday, we went to one of my favorite places here, Wilson's Antique's.  They have polish pottery, which I collect, so of course I had to get 3 more pieces.  My daughters were so gracious and bought me two of them.  They're the best!  They are all wrapped up for travel home, but when I get home I will take pictures and share with you. 

Last night everyone, except one of my brothers and my niece, were able to join us for dinner.  I forgot to take pictures.  I am so bad at that lately.  I did get a picture of my brother who is 6'6" tall next to me.  LOL  I still feel so short when I am around him.  My other brother is 6'3".  We always say they took all the height and left none for us girls.  LOL 

I am off to enjoy more time with my family.  I hope everyone has a fantastic day!

My Top 10 Products In The New Annual Catalog

Stampin' Up! Top Ten Stamp Sets In 2017:2018 Annual Catalog  Stampin Scrapper  Joyce Whitman

I had a hard time narrowing down my list to just 10 of my favorite. There is so many products in the new catalog that I absolutely love. To me this is my favorite catalog since I started being a demonstrator. I am going to have a hard time limiting what I buy.  I want it all!  LOL

Where do I start?  I think it will be with kits.  This product was the very first item I put on my order on June 1st.  It is the Love Today Planner Kit.  I am a planner person, so much so that I call it my second bible.  I am having fun putting information in it and decorating it.  When it is finished I will be doing a blog post on it, which should be soon.  

Annual17_p013a

 

I have to say there are a lot of bundles that I love in this catalog.  The one that caught my eye right away is the Coffee Break Suite.  I love coffee!  I call myself a coffee snob as I am very picky about what kind of coffee I drink.  I will drink regular flavor coffee, but I prefer flavored. I was getting my coffee from a place in Texas, but they just went out of business.  I am really bummed.  Does anyone know of a good place to get flavored coffee?  I would love it if you shared with me.  

Annual17_p031a

 

Another bundle that I love is the Color Theory Suite.  You can do so many projects, cards, scrapbook pages, etc with it.  It is the stamp set with matching framelits for all of the seasons.  This is the stamp set that I used to make my framed project for my open house.  Click HERE if you missed it.  

Annual17_p0146_a

 

My final bundle that is on my list is the Delightful Daisy Suite.  Oh My Goodness!  This is another set that you can do so much with.  You can make 3D projects, cards, scrapbook pages, etc. with this set.  You will see me use it a lot in my projects.  

Annual17_p126_a

 

There are three stamp sets that kept catching my eye.  One of them, Heartland, I got in my box when I was a display stamper in April for OnStage.  The other two are This Little Piggy and the hostess set, Tranquil Tulips.  I think I love the Heartland and This Little Piggy because I was raised on a farm and we raised pigs.  The Tranquil Tulips are just beautiful.

You might say I am obsessed with the 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight.  I have ordered 5 of them.  LOL  I will admit that I forgot I ordered 2 of them and ordered it again.  I think we will be using that ribbon a lot in my classes.  Once you see it you will want to use it all the time too.

We have the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets back!!!  These are going to be a life saver when we are cutting out the detailed framelits and thinlits.  I was so excited when I saw them in the catalog.  Thank you Stampin' Up!  

144106G

 

My final product for my Top Ten Favorites is the Ruffled and Pinewwod Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  I know this makes 11 favorites so I am putting these two together.  LOL  These two folders add so much to your cardstock and your projects.  I can't say enough good things about them.

I hope you enjoyed my favorite products from the new catalog.  I know I will have many more as the year goes on.  What are your favorites?

If you get a chance today, could you please say a prayer for safe travels for Emily, Erica and I as we head to Michigan to see my family. I can't wait to give my mom a great big hug!  She gives the best hugs. It will be nice to get away for a few days.  

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope all of you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Ghost Technique with Happy Birthday Thinlets

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Thinlits #143700, Ghost Technique, Layering Circle Framelits #141705, 1/8" Handheld Circle #134365, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Would you like a card that is easy to make, but looks like it took you a long time?  This is the card for you.  I can't remember where I saw this card, but it was perfect to show you how to do the Ghost Technique. This was my first time trying it and I really liked how it came out.  I used three different colors, as I wanted to show some of the new in colors, but you could do it with just one if you would like.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Berry Burst Cardstock #144243

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 3 3/4" x 5" this will be used for your template
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 3/4"

The first thing you need to do is make your template for your circles. I used the layering circle framelits, 1/2" and 3/4" circle punches and the 1/8" handheld punch to make mine.  Once you have your template made you lay it on top of the piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  Using the White Craft Ink I colored in the circles using a combination of the sponge and dauber.  I mostly used the dauber as it was easier to cover the little circles. One thing I learned making this card is to secure the bottom layer with washi tape. See the picture below for how I did the white layer of circles.

Next I picked up the template and moved it over to the right about 1/8".  You can move it as much or little as you would like.  I then added washi tape to the top layer, so now they are both secure.  I didn't want my template to move all over while I was trying to sponge the different colors.  As you can see in the picture below I only used the daubers on this step. I wanted a deeper color than I could get with the sponges.

Here is a picture of it closer so you can see the circles better.

I cut out the Happy Birthday using the new Happy Birthday Thinlits along with our new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  I love, love, love, did I say love, the adhesive sheets.  

When you use them, the adhesive will already be on the back of your cutout so you just peel the backing off and adhere to your project. You don't have to try to get adhesive on the back of the little sections anymore.  

It is really easy to use them.  You are going to take the backing off the adhesive sheet (I cut these down to the same size as my paper I am going to be cutting from, as they come in 6" x 12" sheets) and adhere it to the back of your cardstock.  Then use your framelit like you always have and cut it out on the Big Shot.  When you are finished it will have the adhesive already on it.  Peel off the back and stick it to your project. Ta Da it's done!  

I know you are going to love them as much as I do when you use it for the first time.  These are going to be especially wonderful with all of our detailed framelits/thinlits.  

Now you know how to make a wow card in a few minutes that looks like it took forever.  Your friends and family will be impressed by your talent.

I am so excited for today!  Emily is coming home!!!  It has been since March since I have seen her and I can't wait to give my baby a big hug.  It will be so nice having her home for two weeks.  On Wednesday, Emily, Erica and myself will be heading to Traverse City, MI to visit my family.  I haven't seen any of them, especially my mom, in a year.  I can't wait!  

Most of the ladies in my family, are going to go to lunch and a wine tour on Saturday.  We have started this a couple of years ago and it has turned into an annual event.  We always have so much fun, with lots of laughter and making new memories.  

I will also get to meet my new grand nephew (ok that makes me sound really old) for the first time.  I have only seen pictures for this little guy.  I can't wait to kiss his chubby little cheeks.  

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a marvelous Monday and week.

Label Me Pretty

stampin up, Stampin Up! Label Me Pretty #143861, Delightful Daisy DSP #144137, 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon #144135, 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows, Oh My Stars Embossing Folder #143710,  Pretty Label Punch #143715, Layering Ovals Framelits #141706, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, designed by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Do you see all of the new products on this card?  There are 9!  They are: Label Me Pretty stamp set, Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide cardstock, Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, Oh My Stars Embossing Folder, Pretty Label Punch, Lemon Lime Twist 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon, 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows and the new 2017-2019 In Color Markers.  Can you believe that?  

When I was designing cards for my open house I wanted to see how many new products I could use on one card, but I wanted it to look pretty too.  I love how this turned out.  It is such a cheerful card and the lemon lime ribbon and bow really pop out.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

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

Berry Burst Cardstock #144243

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper #144137

  • cut at 2" x 5 1/4"

This card is an easy card to make and put together.  I used the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder on the Whisper White cardstock to give it some texture.  The ribbon is wrapped around everything from the Berry Burst cardstock layer and up.  I used the Layering Oval Framelits and Pretty Label Punch for the sentiment.  

I like to color, so I knew I would like this stamp in the set.  I used Basic Black Archival Ink to stamp the image and then all of the new 2017-2019 In Color Markers to color the flowers.  For a final touch I used the absolutely adorable Bitty Bows.  The best thing about the bows is they have the adhesive already on the back of them.  You just peel of a little piece of paper and stick it right onto your project.  Easy Peasy!

This week has been a little crazy to say the least.  The grand Randall's have been here all week and it has been beyond busy.  I forget how much work little ones are to have around 24 hours a day.  I am used to at 5:00pm they go home and I have the evening of quiet with Mr. Wonderful and myself and sometimes Erica if she isn't working.  I had planned on working at night when they are sleeping, except they wanted me on the same level as them.  I didn't have to be in the same room, but I had to be on the same level.  Well, it is a little hard to work in my craft room, which is in the basement, when I am up on the top level.  So, needless to say, I didn't get hardly anything done with my Stampin' Up! business this week.  

I had these grand plans of having a lot of blog post of the new products, Instagram and Facebook post and that just did not happen.  I am working on trying to get caught up with everything tonight and this weekend.  I appreciate all of you understanding and being patient with me.  I have so much to share with you and can't wait.  On top of that, I have a workshop on Sunday that I haven't even started getting ready for, but at least I know what we are going to be doing, which is very helpful.  

One good thing is it is suppose to be really hot here this weekend, so it will be nice in cool in my basement while I am crafting away.  

I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend.

My Favorite Project from Open House

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons #143276, Seasonal Layers Thinlets #143751, designed and created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I saw another demonstrator do something like this on Facebook and knew I wanted to make it for my open house.  I think this is my favorite project I have ever made.  I used the stamp set, Colorful Seasons and matching framelits, Seasonal Layers, and paper from the Color Theory DSP to create this project.  The best part about this stamp, besides being so versatile, is that it comes in a bundle.  When you buy the stamp set and framelits together you get 10% off!   

I had my open house over the weekend.  It was so much fun!  I am so appreciative of the people that were able to make it and really missed the ones that weren't able to attend.  Here are so pictures of my displays:

I always give away door prizes at my events like this.  This time the winners are:

Watercolor Pencils: Kathy N

Embossing Folder:  Christina S

Ink Pad: Robin

 Mr. Wonderful was so kind to make all the food and it was delicious.  You know it is good when people ask for the recipe.  

I can't thank all of the demonstrators that have inspired me for my projects this time.  There are so many talented people out in the world and I am so blessed to know some of them.  This is one of the many reasons I love Stampin' Up!  Other demonstrators are very willing to help each other out and share their creations.  I got so much inspiration and ideas from all of them.   

I hope everyone has a great week!  We are going to have a busy, but fun week with the grand Randall's staying with us for a few days.

The New 2017/2018 Annual Catalog Is Here!!!

 

                                      

Doesn't this video just get you so excited about the new catalog?! Every time I watch it it gets me so excited to share it with you. I have been looking at the catalog and playing with products for a month now and I still feel like a little kid in a candy shop.  

This is going to be a short post as I am busy working on things for my open house tomorrow.  I can't wait!  We are going to have so much fun.  I will share pictures with you next week.  

I hope you have a great day and weekend!

New 2017/2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog will be here tomorrow!!!!

stampin up, Stampin' Up! 2017/2018 Annual Catalog, Stampin Scrapper, Stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

The new catalog will be here tomorrow!!!  

Oh My Goodness!!!  Wait until you see it!  It is absolutely beautiful. My list is already very long of all the new products I want.  You are going to love the new 2017/2019 In Colors.  I wonder what your favorite will be?  

I will be handing out my catalogs at Stamp Camp on Friday and at my Open House on Saturday.  If you are unable to make it to either one and would like a catalog please let me know.   PLEASE NOTE:  I can only ship the catalogs in the USA

You can get the catalog 2 ways:

  • If you have ordered at least $50 (in one order this can't be accumulative) from me in the past year from June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2017 I will send it to you free.  You should have already received it, but if not please let me know.  
  • Catalogs are free, however, you will have to pay the $6.95 for the priority shipping (I do accept PayPal).  You can order it through Stampin' Up!, but you would have to pay for the catalog plus shipping and tax.

 Catalog Details:

  • the catalog is effective from June 1, 2017 - May 31, 2018 starting at 2:00pm ET 
  • the Daisy punch will not be available for purchase on June 1st.  The reason is that it has been so popular with the demonstrators (that is one of the many benefits of being a demonstrator, you get to order the new stuff early) that they have almost already ran out.  They ordered 10,000 of the punches, which is usually more than enough for a whole year, and we, the demonstrators, ordered 7,200 of them in the first two weeks of preorder.  They are expecting a huge shipment in by June 26th and another shipment in in July.  Trust me, this punch is worth waiting for.  It is my favorite new punch from the preorder list.  
  • all the stamp cases, pictured below, were carried over, but they were left out of the new catalog.  I cut the picture out of my old catalog and added it to my new catalog.  They should be on the bottom of page 217 in the new catalog.

Yesterday I was working on one of  my projects for my open house and the kids wanted to play too.  I had a bunch of little pieces of paper that were perfect for a little book.    It is was so fun!  Beckett made me a little book and  I asked him if I could put it out at my open house. You should have seen his little eyes shine.  It was so precious! Here are some pictures of the book and my angels.

Aren't they just the cutest little things you ever did see?  They just melt my heart!  I am so blessed.

Here is Beckett's book

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic stamp set item #135350, Papillon Potpourri stamp set #123759, Flower Shop stamp set #130942, Petite Petals stamp set #133155, designed by Stampin Scrapper, please see more card and gift ideas at stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This card is full of retiring stamp sets, but there is a new product on it.  Do you see it?  I used the retiring stamp sets Kinda Eclectic, Papillon Potpourri and Petite Petals.  The Flower Shop stamp set is in the new catalog along with the new beautiful 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight. 

To make this card fast and easy I used 3 punches, the Elegant Butterfly and Petite Petals, which are retiring, and the Pansy punch.  I just love punches, how about you?

To make this card you will need the following products:

Pear Pizzazz Cardstock #131201

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

Dapper Denim Cardstock #141414

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • scrap for the butterfly

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • pieces for the flowers and butterfly

The flowers and butterfly are great for using up your scraps of your Whisper White cardstock.  It makes me happy when I can use a bunch of my scraps of paper.  I hate to waste the paper, so I use it until there is just a little bit left.  

The little flowers are adhered to the big flower with snail adhesive and then they are popped with a dimensional.  The Dapper Denim butterfly is attached to the white paper with snail too.  I then used glue dots on the center of the stamped butterfly.  I wanted the wings to look like they were flying.     

CoffeeandChatStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman2Do you have fun plans this weekend?  We have a very busy weekend in our household.  Mr. Wonderful is headed to Texas today to help Emily pack up her apartment and her classroom.  She is moving to a new apartment in July and has to pack up her whole classroom and take everything home.  Needless to say, they will be getting a storage unit this weekend.  Erica is busy working all weekend, so if you are in the area stop into her work and say hi.  

I have different commitments all weekend, but most of my weekend will be in my stampin studio!  Nobody will be home, so I will be able to get a lot done for my two stamp camps on Thursday and Friday next week and my open house next Saturday.  I am so excited to be able to just stamp, stamp and stamp some more.  

We have a crazy busy June and July this year, so I am going to try and get a lot of things done ahead of time.  

If you are available on Saturday, please stop in for my open house for the new catalog!  It will be from 9:00am-12:00pm on June 3rd.  We will be making two make and takes, door prizes, samples of some of the new products and food.  I am hoping Mr. Wonderful will make the food for me again.  He is such a good cook.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!
