Customize Ribbon – The Supplies You Need

Sponge Daubers work best to add that color from your ink pads and customize your ribbon!

Here are the ribbons I used in my video today. 100% Polyester or 100% Hemp seems to work best. Use Ink Pads or Stampin’ Blends and create ribbon that fits your project perfectly!


Well, are you excited? TOMORROW the brand spankin’ new Stampin’ Up catalog goes LIVE at 1pm central time! I am SO excited about tomorrow and I know you are too. I’m especially excited about page 91 <wink wink> Check it out!

I will post the download link to the new catalog tomorrow morning.

  • IF YOU HAVE ORDERED FROM ME between September 2019 – April 2020, I have mailed a catalog to you. I hope you have it by now and are enjoying all the new stamps and accessories.
  • IF YOU ARE A NEW CUSTOMER and you are looking for a Stampin’ Up demonstrator, I’m your gal! CLICK HERE to request a catalog from me! My treat!
  • IF YOU HAVE A STAMPIN’ UP DEMONSTRATOR, be sure to get in touch with them to get your copy of the new catalog! (We are all independent and pay for our own catalogs and shipping costs)

A quick note about catalog delivery….

The Covid pandemic really caused a mess in the delivery of the catalogs this year. The catalogs were mailed bulk mail through the post office and Stampin’ Up anticipated they would be delivered at least a week ago but what they didn’t anticipate was this huge surge in online shopping. It’s causing the post office to run WAY behind in bulk mail delivery. Sadly, we are at the mercy of the post office to deliver them when they can. If you were on my list to receive the catalog (see above), I hope it will arrive soon. I am just starting to hear from customers who are receiving them so please be patient with your postal carrier. They are working hard to keep up with the demands that are on them. I will have the link to the new catalog tomorrow so you will be able to view the catalog online until your hard copy arrives.
