Friday!!!!! It’s FRIDAY!!! Wahoo! It’s been a crazy busy week and I am grateful for the weekend. It’s going to be REALLY hot here this weekend so I am staying in and enjoying the A/C and some stamping time. Today’s CREATIVE JUICE sketch for Week #26 is a simple layout but it has a lot of possibilities.
Each week I serve up a big glass of CREATIVE JUICE to get your creative juices flowing. Let me share this week’s card inspiration.
- Get creative with your color combinations.
- The strips could be a stamp image, washi tape, a strip of Designer Paper or even ribbon.
You can print out the sketches each week OR you can save them to your computer. By doing this you will have sketch ideas at your fingertips, whenever you need them. Just click the pic to download or print it. Remember, you can always find them here if you go to the ‘Categories’ (located on the right side bar) and click on Creative Juice.
Here is what I came up with for today’s CREATIVE JUICE sketch…
Here are the measurements for my FABULOUS DARLING card but remember, these measurements are not set in stone. Get creative with your measurements!
- Coastal Cabana – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”
- Crushed Curry – 2″ x 5″
- Whisper White – 1 ½” x 2 ½” and 1 ¾” x 2 ¾”
- Tea Room Designer Paper – 1 ¼” x 4″

*Also available in Wood MountYou guys have been SO patient as Stampin’ Up waited patiently on U.S. Customs to release our Stampin’ Blends. Your wait is finally over!
I am just beyond excited to get my hands on these new colors. If you haven’t tried the new Stampin’ Blends, you are going to fall in love when you try them. They are called “Blends” because you have a light and a dark marker. These are alcohol markers so when you ‘blend’ them together you get the most beautiful shadowing ever!
To add the Stampin’ Blends to your order, just click a pic! Colors in RED are BRAND NEW colors!!! NOTE: You can also buy the markers separately. See the full list on page 205 of the Stampin’ Up Catalog & Idea Book!
Some of you had asked if I could share Ginny in her song that she sang at Kristin Chenoweth’s Braodway Bootcamp. Well, we have been given permission to share! Yay! Here it is. These girls are all amazing (but I’m partial to the one in the red dress with the pink glasses).
I hope you enjoy the song!
Have a wonderful weekend my stamping friends! Spend some creative time for yourself this weekend and hey, while you’re stamping, make someone’s day and send the cards you make. For the cost of a postage stamp and a little bit of cardstock, you can literally change someone’s day for the better.
Thanks for being here today! See you on Monday!
