I know everyone has been seeing Mason jar projects all over blogger.  Well here is my project using the Stampin' Up Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelit bundle.

I heat embossed the fish using our new copper embossing powder.  The jar was stamped using Pool Party ink.  I also used Pool Party card stock as my base layer.  The polka dot Bermuda Bay is a project life card.  The ribbon is Bermuda Bay stitched ribbon.  I know these two items are retired, but you can still use them.  I wanted to share ways to combine old and new products.

To add value to the Everyday Jars framelits the new Holiday catalog, which goes live September 1, 2016, has two new stamp sets that will coordinate with them.  One is a Halloween themed set and the other is Christmas.

I would like to send a complimentary Holiday catalog to any one that subscribes or is a subscriber.  Just send me an e-mail at with your name and mailing address and I'll get one out to you.

Check back in next week I will be sharing projects made using some of the new products from the Holiday catalog.

This weeks challenge at SUO is Black and White with a splash of color.  I used the stamp sets Weather Together and Playful Backgrounds for my card today.  My splash of color is Pool Party.  Here is the finished project.

The card is simple with stamping as the only technique used.  No fancy embellishments, ribbon or bling.

HELLO Everyone!

It's time for another challenge using Stampin' Up Only products.  This time the theme is to use things in Nature.  I decided to use the stamp set Hello Kitty.  I love cats and these images are so adorable.  

I used the Designer Series Paper Affectionately Yours.  The paper is double-sided so the layers are using both sides of one sheet.  I stamped the image and used my aqua painter to watercolor.  I layered the happy little kitty onto a 2015-2017 Mint Macaron dollie.  I then adhereded it to the card with dimensionals.  The banner is from the Number Of Years stamp set and the sentiment is from Hello Kitty.  The yellow enamel shapes are the perfect embellishment.  This card was fast and easy.

Happy 4th of July- US Independence Day

Happy 4th of July to all my blogger friends. 

 Hope your having fun celebrate our country's independence. Don't forget it's not just about grilling and fireworks.  Remember God has blessed the USA and made it great we should not take our liberty and freedoms lightly. 

Today I want to share a shaker card I made using the Number of Years stamp set.

I also used red foil sheet, silver glimmer paper and the new In-Colors DSP in Dapper Denim.
The "happy" and the '4' were cut out using the Number of Years framelits and the Hello You thinlits.
 I also used the layering circles dies.
Inside the shaker card I used the metallic sequins. 
The new foam strips made assembling this shaker easy peasy.
You can find all these items in the 2016-2017 Annual catalog.

Hope you have a safe and fun holiday.

Today I am using the new Designers Series Paper "By the Shore" and the stamp set "Seaside Shore" featured on pages 92 and 93 of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.

I know I have already said that Dapper Denim is my favorite In-Color so I know you won't be surprised that I used it for the gift bag I made.

I also used Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron which coordinates with this DSP.  The gift bag was made using the Gift Bag Punch Board medium size.  The Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon and Enamel 
Shapes are perfect embellishments.

I am entering my gift bag on the Stampin' Up Only Challenge Blog.  The theme for the challenge is to use Designer Series Paper found in the 2016-2017 Annual catalog.

Stampin' Up EASTER Gift Bag

Here;s an Easter project using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Honeycomb Happiness.  I used the gift bag punch board to make this cute little bag that's just the right size for a few chocolate Easter egg candies.  The paper is Designers Series paper stack "It's My Party".
I added half of a dolie and white Baker's Twine.  The handles are made using Hello Honey trim from last years Occasions catalog.  For my sentiment I used the stamp Easter Lamb and masked off the lamb and just stamped the Happy Easter.

Time is running out Sale-A-Bration ends March, 31,2016. Place you order now and don't miss out on FREE stuff.  

Also a reminder that in June the new catalog will be coming out and the 2014-2016 In Colors will be retiring.   These are the following colors
Blackberry Bliss
Hello Honey
Lost Lagoon
Mossy Meadow
Tangelo Twist

I really hate to see these colors retire but I am eagerly awaiting the introduction of the new colors for 2016-2018.

Hope you have fun crafting for Easter.
