CURVY CORNER TRIO PUNCH

 

I was really sad to see the Curvy Corner Trio Punch on the retirement list.  I LOVE this punch!  It is SO versatile.  If you missed getting it, trust me when I say, you NEED it. It’s not just three punches in one either.  Check out my series on the Curvy Corner Trio Punch that I shared a few months ago.  You can do SO much with it!  Supplies of this punch are limited and when they are gone, they are gone.  I just don’t want you to miss out on adding it to your stash.

If you already own this punch, you will really enjoy the four 2-Minute Tuesday Tip videos that I have using it.

Good-byes are always hard for me.  When I was a kid and my grandparents would come and visit, I would pretend that I was asleep as they were getting ready to leave back to Iowa.  I didn’t want to say good-bye so I just wouldn’t.  Well, that made sense when I was 6.

Good news though!  When I say good-bye to a stamp set, that means that YOU can say HELLO to some of the stamp sets and accessories that are on the Retirement List.  Get them while supplies last!  Here are some of my favorite projects over the past year that might have you rethinking some of the stamp sets that you have forgotten about.

Well my friends!  Did you find some things that you realized you needed in your stampin’ stash?  The Itty Bitty Accent Punch pack is a MUST have, I’m tellin’ ya!  It’s my favorite!

Just an update…. we weathered the storm just fine.  Whew!  Dodged another tornado.  We had some hail and they were expecting softball sized hail (egads!) but luckily it melted down to small marble size by the time it hit the ground.  We sure needed the rain so no complaints about that.  Just wish it would just RAIN and not the hail or tornado threats.

I will close so I can hit the road for a little road trip with my Mom and sis!  I hope that you have a fabulous Wednesday and I will see you all back here tomorrow!

2-Minute Tuesday Tip Video - Card Mailing Tips - check out the video at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com and look for the April 26, 2016 blog post

Mailing hand stamped cards with raised embellishments can be tricky.  We don’t want the embellishments destroyed by the postal machines. No, we want our beautiful stamped art to arrive in pristine condition, right?  Today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip Video will make that a reality.  Check it out!

If you are unable to view the video, CLICK HERE to view it online.

Was that easy or what?  If you make up some of these protectors in advance and have them ready, it won’t even be an effort!

Confession… I am heading out the door for my morning walk and I shot this video before I had coffee.  If you watch the video, you’ll see why I clarify that. (I meant to say to use scrap cardstock, not crap cardstock – ugh!)  I am now putting a note on my door to drink coffee before shooting.

Here are some of the Embossing Folders I would recommend.  Check out the sale on several of them 30% to 50% off!

Well, I just finished Week 3 of my weight loss journey.  I’m down 7 lbs, I am reaching my 10,000 step goal every day!  Wahoo!!!  I walk 3-4 miles every day with Mr. Awesome.  It’s been great weather and SO nice to get outside!  Speaking of weather, today is going to be bumpy.  As you may know, I live in Moore, Oklahoma – home of the all too famous “Tornado Alley”.  Today is setting itself up to be one of those days.  Schools are closed or are sending kids home early and we are staying close to our televisions to keep up to date.  You can actually feel the electricity in the air on days like this. So, if you could, say a prayer for Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas as we prepare for the weather tonight?

Heading out of town tomorrow for a Girls trip.  My mom, my sister, and I are heading to Iowa to visit family and friends for a few days.  You guys are going to think I travel all the time.  I really don’t.  We had planned this trip back in September but my Mom broke her shoulder so we had to postpone until the Spring so tomorrow morning, we’re off!  Looking forward to seeing family I haven’t seen in years.  One of them is a cousin and she is a customer of mine.  When she started ordering, she had no idea we were related and somehow the pieces all got put together.  How cool is that?  Can’t wait to see Denise.  I think the last time we saw each other I was probably about 8 years old.  Let’s see, do the math… that was just 10 years ago.  LOL Well, I was never good at math anyway.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!  I am going to try to post so stay tuned for more stamping awesomeness!

Make It Monday – Stylish Stripes Washi Birthday Card

MAKE IT MONDAY - FREE tutorial at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

I am so thrilled that you guys are enjoying Make-It Monday!  The concept of having a full project sheet with instructions, supply list, and measurements so you can get to creating is wonderful!

Today’s card is SO easy.  After the Stampin’ Up OnStage conference, I saw a lot of new ideas with Washi Tape. I’ve not been big on Washi but let me just say, you’re going to see me use it a lot more.  I came home with some amazing ideas using it.  I almost feel foolish I hadn’t been using it earlier.

Washi Tape is a great way to add texture, color, and pop to a card.  Typically I always used ribbon but washi is the new trend and it’s easier to mail.

I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.  We packed up the camper and headed out for our first camping trip of the season.  Mr. Awesome spent the weekend doing some little repairs on the camper while I stamped my heart out. There is just something wonderful about stamping in the woods.  The temperature was a perfect 78 and nice breeze was blowing.  It couldn’t have been more wonderful.  Christina came to join us and she really needed the break.  Finals week is this week so yeah, she needed this get-away too.

Before I close, I want to let you know that my plan was to email those of you who placed orders your tutorials.  Well, it seems the campground we were at how ZERO internet service.  Talk about having to unplug!  It did put a crimp in my plans though.  I had to drive out of the campground just so I could answer a few emails that I had to answer over the weekend.  I will be working on emailing the tutorials today though.

Have an awesome Monday my friends!  See ya tomorrow!

It’s going to be an absolutely BEAUTIFUL weekend so we are going on our first camping trip of the season.  I am SOOOOO excited!!!  So, the last couple days we’ve been de-winterizing the camper and restocking it.  I’ve never done that before so I’m just sort of winging it.  Now I’m wishing I had made better notes about what I took out.  Luckily there is a Wal-Mart within 5 miles so I can run and grab anything I forget (which will probably be a lot).  My new Paper Pumpkin came in the mail while I was gone so I get to spend some time stamping while we’re camping and that I my favorite part.  I think I’m more creative out in nature.

Whew!  What a great week I had last week!  I spent 4 days enjoying time with my Stampin’ Up demonstrator friends for the OnStage conference and a few more days hanging out with a few of my friends!  BEST Stampin’ Up event I have ever been too, hands down!  It was fabulous!

I have the new catalog in my hot little hands and guys, I can’t even speak.  It’s the BEST catalog we’ve ever had. SO many framelits.  OH MY GOODNESS so many framelits!  Lots of new stamp sets that made my heart beat faster. The new accessories are so fresh and new and totally on trend.  WAHOO!!!!

But, as the saying goes, “out with the old and in with the new” and that means that we must bid a fond farewell to some of our favorites.  No tears, no tears… remember, just like shoes, even though they were our favorite, there comes a time you want something new.

I’m flying home this afternoon.  I have had the most amazing time BUT I miss my family and I miss my dogs.  And I miss my bed and my pillow.  You know how it is, right?

I learned so much at Stampin’ Up’s OnStage conference and I can’t wait to share it with you.  Right now, my lips are sealed.  Stampin’ Up won’t let me talk about it.  It’s KILLING me because there is so much good stuff to share but… good things come to those who wait.  🙂

I will be back tomorrow with some fun things for you.  Thank you for your patience while I was away. Remember, if you placed an order and used the Host Code, be watching your emails for your tutorials.  I will get to work on those as soon as I get home.

Here’s what I designed for this weekend’s challenge…

I love love love the Notecards & Envelopes.  If you have ordered from me this year, you’ve received a reusable thank you card on one of these little babies.  They are just the right size 3 ½” x 5″ and the best part, they are a package deal – 20 notecards and 20 envelopes.

The Balloon Celebration stamp set is just incredible.  I love 2-Step stamping and this one has such a fun texture stamp in it.

I stamped the stars on the Designer Paper.  This is a great way to make any of the paper in the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper a perfect match for your project — just stamp in the background!

Simply Simple DESIGNER PAPER GIFT BOX BAG – Video Tutorial

VIDEO TUTORIAL - Designer Paper Gift Box Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the April 14, 2016 blog post!

You guys are going to LOVE today’s video.  I had to wait until today to show it to you because these are the gifts I gave my team members who are at OnStage with me this week.  I couldn’t let them see it early!

VIDEO TUTORIAL - Designer Paper Gift Box Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the April 14, 2016 blog post! VIDEO TUTORIAL - Designer Paper Gift Box Bag - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - look for the April 14, 2016 blog post!

These bags are SO much fun!  You probably have a pile of Designer Series Paper that you are looking to use up so I hope you’ll give this box bag a try!   You can even keep them flat so you’re ready with a bag when you need one.  Well, let’s check out the video…

If you are unable to view the video, CLICK HERE to view it online.

Now, that you’ve watched the video I need to explain…. for some reason I really struggled to get the words out of what I wanted to say about the size.  Let me make it a little more clear.

The bag I created in the video is 7″ tall.  If you want to change the size, follow this rule for the FIRST SCORE LINE:

  • 6″ tall bag – score at 3″
  • 6 ½” tall bag – score at 2 ½”
  • 7″ tall bag – score at 2″
  • 7 ½” tall bag – score at 1 ½”
  • 8″ tall bag – score at 1″
  • 9″ tall bag – skip the first score line altogether

I hope that makes more sense that the gobbly-gook that I was speaking on the video.

So, now that the first score line is taken care of, here are the other scores to make and a couple other measurements.

  • 1st Score line and then 9″

So, today at the Stampin’ Up OnStage conference we will get to see the BRAND NEW CATALOG!  I can’t wait!  I’m not allowed to show it, talk about it, or give any details but I have no doubt that Stampin’ Up will knock me off my feet.

Who Wants A New Catalog?  Get yours at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com!

Some of you have asked if you will be receiving the NEW Annual Catalog from me.  I do mail out catalogs to my awesome customers and I don’t want you to miss out.  Here’s how to ensure that you will be receiving a catalog from me.

  • If you have ordered from me in the last 6 months, joy of joys, YOU my wonderful and faithful customer WILL have a new catalog coming to you. My way of saying I LOVE YOU!
  • If you have not ordered in the last 6 month, why not place an order before April 30th?  We have SO many great stamps, ink, and paper, surely you need SOMETHING, right?  Why not check out the WEEKLY DEALS or the BRAND NEW STUFF on the CLEARANCE RACK?  Your name will be on my list of wonderful and faithful customers and YOU my dear friend, will also have a catalog!

I will be placing the catalog order on April 30th so you have a little over 2 weeks to place an order to qualify for your FREE Annual Catalog!  190 pages of inspiration and pure imagination!!!  Who’s ready for lots new stamps and accessories?  I know I am!!!!

Be sure to join me tomorrow for a Stampin’ Girls Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!
