Center Open Gift BoxHi Everyone! You will LOVE how easy this is to make. It's a WOW box for sure. I have a start-to-finish Video Tutorial for you below :) As well as KITS TO GO!!!! I have a limited kits to go if you want to make along with me. You provide stamps, ink and adhesive. Everything else included. I had to cancel a local class due to work demands so all of you can benefit with a kit! SEE BELOW!

Center Open BoxI put my spin on the box by substituting out the ribbon and Tear & Tape hinge with WASHI TAPE!!! SO easy I'm sure it will inspire ways to use Washi Tape in this manner :)

Now Open! My 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Catalog Paper Share!

Sharing is Fun!

Hi Everyone! My 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Paper Share is now open and runs through May 31st at 9 pm!

2015-2016 Designer Paper



What is a Paper Share? A paper share is where you sign up for a spot to receive partial packs of Stampin' UP!'s Designer and Specialty Paper. This allows participants to get sample sizes of all the new paper. Woo Hoo?

How does it work? You prepaid for your paper share. Then I order the paper in, cut and repackage the sample size paper, and ship out to you via Priority Mail. Once ordered, it takes about a 2 week turn around!

You can see all the details and the names of the Designer paper by going to my Paper Share Page Here!
