What’s New Wednesday?

What's New Wednesday - See new ideas from the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comHappy Wednesday my sweet stampin’ peeps!  Can you believe it?  We are getting hammered with yet ANOTHER ice storm so no school for Ginny or Christina today which means my day gets all messed up.  You know, it’s not the routine getting off that bothers me so much….it’s that my FEET ARE COLD!  I am not pleasant person when my feet are cold.  I think it’s time we all send Mother Nature a SPRING card to warm her frozen heart.  What do you think?

All this cold made me switch gears and think about spring and Easter.  Did you know that it is exactly one month until Easter?  Yep, April 5th.  This seemed like the perfect time to start sharing some fun Easter projects with you.

Today’s What’s New Wednesday is focusing on the For Peep’s Sake stamp set.  
For Peep's Sake - order yours at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I have had a ball with this stamp set, I must say.  Those little chickies just make me smile!  Check out what I did to my stamp!  I wanted to be able to use them separately but when I want to use them together, I can just push them back into place.  Just cut apart the stamp but don’t trim everything out.  When you leave it alone, as you can see in the picture, they come back together in perfect harmony.  Love it!For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Here are some projects I created with the For Peep’s Sake stamp set.

Nothing fancy but it sure beats putting jelly beans in an Easter basket in the ugly Brach’s bag, don’t you think?  And the Gusseted Bags are on sale this week!
For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comThis card was 100% copied from one of the members of Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild, Joyce Whitman.  I absolutely LOVED the simplicity and clean lines of this card and I asked if I could copy it and share it with you.  Great card, Joyce!
For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comThis card I actually shared last week but hey, it uses the set so I thought I would share it again.  Notice how I utilized the cut-up stamp?
Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!  February 27, 2015  www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Stampin' Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!  February 27, 2015  www.SimplySimpleStamping.comMy last project I spent a lot of time working on.  Lots of trial and error.  This little Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup holder was just so much fun to make.  

How about I share a video on it?  If time works out for me today, I will have that for you tomorrow.  You will love it!
For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com For Peep's Sake by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com And that will wrap up today’s What’s New Wednesday.  I hope you are thinking spring and Easter now.  With only a month to go, we need to get started now.

2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Stampin’ Trimmer Blade Tips


2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I love my Stampin’ Trimmer but the other day I went to change the blade and I couldn’t for the life of me get that little thing OFF.  I fought and fought with it and then I had a “DER” moment.  You guys know what a “DER” moment it, right?  That moment when you slap yourself on the forehead and think, “DER!  Of course!”?  Yep, one of those.

Turns out there is a VERY simple trick to removing the blade for replacement.  You’ll learn it in today’s video PLUS some tips on the Stampin’ Trimmer. 

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

I have own SO many different cutters over the years and I have hated all of them.  Either you couldn’t see the numbers, the blades would fall out, and my all time favorite – it would cut crooked EVERY time.  ERRRR!  Is there anything more frustrating?

Confession… I really didn’t expect this trimmer to be any better but WOW I was so surprised!  It’s fantastic!  The bonus is that I can have one trimmer and have LOTS of attachment blades.  LOVE!

I have included a list of all the accessories you can get for the Stampin’ Trimmer.  If you don’t currently own the Stampin’ Trimmer and are frustrated with the one you currently have, do yourself a favor.  Cutting paper is the most important thing we do in paper crafting.  I know you will love the Stampin’ Trimmer as much as I do.

I hope that you guys enjoyed today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip!  Maybe it will save you from the DER moment too.

Happy Tuesday, friend!  See ya back here tomorrow!

Thanks to my dear friend Cindy for braving the frigid temps to photograph my girls.  She’s amazing…and so are her pictures!  I thought I would share them with you.  They turned out FABULOUS!

K-Cup Coffee Holder – Video Tutorial

K-Cup holder by Connie Stewart - Video tutorial - February 26, 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com I LOVE LOVE LOVE my coffee but I am quite particular about it.  I like my coffee very fresh, with cream, and I want it all day long.  :)  Mr. Awesome bought me Keurig coffee machine several years ago and it’s the best thing ever.  
K-Cup holder by Connie Stewart - Video tutorial - February 26, 2015 - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com On the Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Facebook group, several of the stampers shared samples of their K-Cup holders.  It’s a great way to share a new flavor of coffee with your friends.  I thought it would be nice to make my own but as I got into the directions, I was a little frustrated so what would Connie do?   Change it make it simpler and that is just what I did.  

My K-Cup holder is just a smidge bigger but much easier to work with.  Best part, it used an 8 ½” x 11″ piece of cardstock so there is no measuring involved.

Let me share today’s video…

Here is the (4) K-Cup holder.  Love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you all have a terrific Thursday!  Be sure to join me tomorrow for Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Weekend Challenge!

What’s New Wednesday – Bow Builder Punch

What's New Wednesday - See new ideas from the Occasions and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comHappy Wednesday!  I hope you’re having a good week so far!  I had such a great week!  I had a wonderful visit with my friend Brenda. I had to put her on an airplane last night and I was not happy about that but as they say, all good things must come to an end.  

Lucky for us the Occasions Catalog isn’t ending anytime soon!  I still have SO many stamps and accessories to share with you in What’s New Wednesday!

Yesterday I shared a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video on how to create a bow with the Bow Builder punch.  It was pretty simple, right?  Well, today I went into my stamp studio to play around with it some more to see what other things could be created with it.  

Check these babies out!  Wahoo!

This simple bow was created by punching out (4) punches.  I used a 1″ circle underneath to help build it.  Super simple!

Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015










How about a flower instead of a bow?  Yep, the Bow Builder can make that too!  Punch (7) and lay them next to each other.  Tip:  You can do it with (6) punches too.
Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015
Is this fabulous or what?  (8) punches and I just started to build.  I brought the middle layer out a little more, the whale tails come out a smidge more.  A silver ½” glimmer center finished this bow off nicely.
Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015 Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015
What to do with the (4) extra whale tails?  Create a flat bow!  This is perfect for a card that needs to be mailed!
Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015Want the full bow effect without the bulk?  Try this!  Add a Stampin’ Dimensional in the bows before you fold them over.  Problem solved!  Just a little ‘pop’ to give the bow the depth you need but still great for mailing.
Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015 Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015
Jazz up a paper clip for work or as a bookmark!
Bow Builder Punch Ideas by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 25, 2015Pretty impressive punch, huh?  I could go crazy with this one!  

I wish I had more time today to create ‘actual’ projects with each one but I have a lot of catching up to do.  You know how it is when you’ve had company for a week.  Laundry is piled up, sheets to be changed, mail to be sorted, and I don’t even want to talk about the emails that are stacking up.  It was SO worth it though!  We had such a great time!!!

I hope that today’s pics inspire you!  What will YOU create with the Bow Builder???  Don’t have this punch yet?  Be sure to add it to your next order.  You won’t be disappointed!

Happy Hump Day my sweet stampin’ 
friends!  MWAH!

2-Minute Tuesday Tip – Bow Builder Punch

2-Minute Tuesday Tips by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com Bow Builder Punch - Groom's card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 24, 2015Is this dapper or what?  I wanted to share a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip on using the Bow Builder punch and my finished bow reminded me of a card I created WAAAAY back when (if 2012 is way back when).  That card is my most viewed video on YouTube with over 114,000 views.  Back then I had to piece together my own bow tie but the Bow Builder is SO much nicer and faster!  I thought my card needed a quick make-over.
Bow Builder Punch - Groom's card by Connie Stewart - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com  - February 24, 2015I love that texture on the tux shirt and those little rhinestones really give it a touch a class.  But it’s that BOW TIE!  Wow!  So elegant!

Let me share today’s 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video on the Bow Builder Punch.

Here are the products I used to create the bow itself:

Here’s what I used to create the card:
I love the card and I hope you like it too!

I have had a FABULOUS time hanging out with my Bestie, Brenda, this week but all good things must come to an end.  Her flight leaves tonight so we have one last day to create together so with that being said, I am going to wrap up today’s post and get back into my stamp studio!

Have a wonderful Tuesday my sweet stampin’ peeps!  See ya back here tomorrow!

Build a Bouquet and other disasters…

Simply Created Build a Bouquet - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 23, 2015I can’t tell you how proud I was of my first few flowers!Simply Created Build a Bouquet - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 23, 2015I won’t lie….10 hours later, my bouquet was done.  Now, before you rule out making one yourself, let me share my experience.
Simply Created Build a Bouquet - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 23, 2015Yes, it took awhile but the final product was worth it!  SO pretty!  This is not a ‘quickie’ and it’s not something you make in one sitting but it is something you will enjoy.  Just take an evening to make up one set of the flowers, maybe two.  Another day, make up another set.
Simply Created Build a Bouquet - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 23, 2015More than anything, I want to recommend you make it with a friend.  Brenda and I had SO much fun and we helped each other along.  We laughed a lot (and threw the floral tape across the room.  Man, I hate that stuff.)  

In the end, my final bouquet tired out AHHHHMAZING!  Which is just what I needed because the snow is blowing like crazy today.  
Simply Created Build a Bouquet - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - February 23, 2015Brenda and I learned A LOT of things as we created this bouquet.  We are going to work on a tutorial to share with you what we learned.  Tips to make the project go together easier and faster.  We want you to learn from our mistakes.  You’re welcome.

Hmm, are you dying to make one or are you still a little nervous?  Give it a try!  Invite a friend over, have LOTS of coffee ready, and give it a go!  Here’s a list of what we used on our bouquet.  If you don’t have the Build A Bouquet stamp set, you can use Gorgeous Grunge too!

Use what you have, ORDER what you need.

I hope you’ll give this beautiful bouquet a try.  It is TRULY amazing!  And hey, right now you can earn Sale-a-Bration freebies with your order of $50 or more (before tax/ship).  Sweet!

I have just a couple more days with Brenda here so we’re going to get back to crafting.  If it’s a little quiet on the blog, just know that I am busy busy busy creating fabulous stuff to share with you later in the week.  Oh!  And guess what?!  We have designed the most coolest project EVAH for the March “Let’s Get Creative” tutorial.  It’s my favorite one yet!  I can’t wait for March 1st to share it with you.
