My Special Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Tee Shirt

Bling! Bling! Bling!

I found a lady who made these Tee Shirts a couple of years ago.
It is a purple tee shirt with silver and bright pink glitter lettering.
I don't remember who she is but she also made shirts for ball teams, family reunions and other type shirts at the time.

I had taken a close up photo of the front of it and posted it on my personal Facebook page.  It came through my "memories" today on Facebook. 

I really need to remember to wear this shirt more often!

RemARKably Creative Blog Tour: Celebrate NEW Products!

Welcome to this month's RemARKably Creative Blog Tour!  I'm honored to be a part of this blog tour again this month!  It is so much fun to see all the great ideas the fellow Stampin' Up! bloggers post on the tour. Such great inspiration!   This month we are featuring new products that could only be ordered beginning June 1.

This new Stampin' Up! catalog has so many samples that are on my list to copy or use for inspiration!  One of the samples that I really like is the gift bag on page 81.  I love the Celebration Time shaker part of it!  I decided to recreate it and put it on a note card.  
Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for the list of supplies used.

Although it is large enough to use on a greeting card, this cute card would be great to use to accompany a birthday or baby gift. Check out that super sweet itty bitty bow!  You make it with the Celebration Thinlits Dies! Super fast & easy!  

The Shaker part of the card is also made with the Celebration Thinlits Dies.  There are a ton of options for using these dies!  Inside the shaker, I wanted to add a little color. In addition to some silver and gold sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment, I used the 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to punch some little circles from Pink Pirouette & Pool Party Cardstock.  The Foam Adhesive Strips made it easy to put the shaker card together.

I just love the new Mini Sequin Trim!  When I cut a piece off, I didn't loose sequins at the cut ends.  Awesome!

The new Decorative Ribbon Border punch makes it super quick & easy to make a nice trim on your card.  A nice feature is that it is 2-sided. If you turn the punch piece around, it has a nice scallop edge. 

As you continue through the rest of the Blog Tour I know you are going to love all the projects made with new products from  the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!  You can click on a name to take you to the other participants in today's RemARKable Creative Blog Tour.

Throw Back Thursday: Owl Sheriff Punch Art Card

This cute Owl Sheriff is still one of my favorite cards. I made it waaaay back in 2010.  It doesn't seem like it was that long ago!  I don't do a lot of punch art type cards but when I saw this one on the internet, I HAD to make one.  I added it in a class one month and the customers loved it too.  

You could easily make this card.  The only retired products are the embossing folder and the brads on the doors.  If you don't have them, they can easily be substituted with current products.

The design originated with Lynn Pratt.  You can find her directions for the card on her blog at

More New Product Videos!

Although demonstrators could preorder some new catalog products prior to the release of the catalog it wasn't the entire catalog.   The first order after the catalog goes live is so hard to submit!  I spent quite a bit of time pouring through the catalog & viewing the product videos trying to shorten my immediate wish list.  After many, many changes I finally made my selections and submitted the order Thursday night.  I have Open Stampin' & Photo Album day on the 10th and I'm hoping they will be delivered before then.  I would love to have them all here to share with my customers!

I also have ALL of the Designer Series Papers coming in the order for a Paper Share with my customers.  LOTS of cutting in my future. That may be what my personal project will be on Open Stampin' & Photo Album Day!

Below are a couple of additional videos of new products that are my favorites - for now!
**If you are viewing this as an email and they do not show up, click over to my blog and you'll be able to see them.

Coffee Break Suite

Anyone that knows me knows I love coffee!   I love regular coffee, flavored coffee, iced coffee, coffee shakes and my last great coffee love is for Vietnamese iced coffee.  My older daughter introduced me to Vietnamese iced coffee the first time I visited her in Atlanta.  It's the only strong coffee I like. With addition of the sweetened condensed milk, I hate to think of all the calories I'm drinking in it but I love it!  

I LOVE this suite of products!  It is so great how Stampin' Up! coordinates everything so that it is easy to put them all together in projects.  I can hardly wait to play with all the coffee toys!  Yes! It is on that order that is coming next week!  

For those of you with catalog in hand, you can find this suite of products on Pages 30 & 31.  If you do not have a catalog, you can view the entire catalog through my website.  Just click here to view the annual catalog on line.  You can even download it so you have it handy in your computer!

Memories & More

Stampin' Up! now has it's own line of pocket page photo album supplies!  The wonderful thing about it being a Stampin' Up! line of products is that it coordinates with other products in the Stampin' Up! catalog!  

Now it is easier than ever to coordinate your photo album pages or scrapbooks AND super easy to use the pocket card packs and other products for greeting cards and other paper crafting projects!

In this video Bonnie tells you all about this great new line of products!

Have a wonderful week end!  I'm hoping to get in the craft room and get things organized & ready for the new stuff that is coming!
