Festive Flurry Bundle - Workshop Week Demo #2

FestiveflurryHi Everyone! Workshop Week continues with my  party demonstration #2. (Click here to see my typicaly Stampin' UP! party format) Also has a supply list.

The Magnetic Platform is my 2013-2014 must have tool. AND it's obviously other's too as SU has a hard time keeping it in inventory! As of today - SU has a hold on ordering until backorders are all filled. I'll let you know when we can order again!

But I wanted to keep showing my workshop,which showcased the platform! Rumor is it might be back first part of September to order!

Here's the video showing how to use the Festive Flurry Bundle and the Magnetic Platform makes it a breeze to die-cut.

Sunburst Technique Card - Workshop Week M&T #1

Hi Everyone! At my recent workshops & clubs, I've been showing the Sunburst technique then the groups get to make one for themselves! It's a super-easy technique for a WOW look.

This is part 2 of 4 of Workshop Week! Showing what my typical Stampin' UP! workshop/party looks like. Click here to see the overall materials used for the week's project.

Sunburst Technique

·        (4) strips of Designer Series Paper cut at 1-1/2” x 4”

o   Note: Really…any size of rectangles will work…experiment! Also any combination of card stock and/or designer paper will work.  

·        Scrap piece of paper/cardstock 2-1/2”  x 5”

Cut DSP  into triangle pieces – cutting from top right to lower left. This is important to orient your paper if it has a directional pattern to it. Otherwise, it will be upside down.- this will make sense the first time it's cut wrong LOL

Here's the fall card we made at Sandy's workshop.

Dress Up Framelits - Magnetic Paper Dolls

VID00579Hi Everyone! cute is this project one of my Designer Paper Dolls Linda created for her granddaughter?! She made a Magnetic paper doll with outfits made from the Dress Up Framelit! Such a unique gift for a girl's birthday (like in this case) or a Holiday gift!

Earlier this spring/summer I held an All Dressed Up! framed project class using Dress UP Framelits. We were talking of different ways to use the dies and Linda came up with this. We couldn't wait for her to show us! Thanks Linda for letting me video your project!

 Warning - girls of all ages will want to play with it! It's sure to be a hit! {giggle} All I know is I could have made dresses and outfits all day long!

Gorgeous Grunge Club Cards

DSCN3430Hi Everyone! As soon as I spied Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in the Main Catalog, I knew it was for me! I love all the tready splatter looks, but sometimes the splatter doesn't go where you want. This way, the 'splatter' and streaks go where you stamp them...yippee!

These were our Stamp Club cards last night. The Halloween card is a spinner. The little spider slides and spins when you move it back and forth.

 A spinner card video in the making!
