Some of My Latest Creations

By Lisa Freeman | May 28, 2017

Hey everyone,

Here are some projects that I recently did in a class this month. I have a little bit of old and a little bit of new products.

The designer paper in the first card (cupcakes and carousels), the doilies, and the dapper denim ribbon are all going, but the rest is staying. I love the dragonfly dreams set. It is one of my new favorites.  

And then of course there is one of my all time favorites (Wild About Flowers). Who wouldn’t be wild about this stamp set?? I used the Timeless Textures set for the background of the 2nd card. (another one of my favorites!!). A girl can never have too many favorite stamp sets, can she?

And the last card used the brand new Eastern Palace suite. I LOOOOVE this new bundle. The framelits are amazing. Stampin Up really did a great job on this one! You can make about 40 different designs with just a few framelits. 

The middle project is actually one of our petite cafe bags which is also retiring (sad face). I love to use these bags for gifts to give to everyone! They are the perfect size to fill with candy, cookies, treats, or really just about anything. You can basically take any card idea and just change the measurements slightly to make the front piece for your bag.

I stocked up on these before they are gone for good. Oh, I just remembered this cute little butterfly punch is also retiring! (another sad face). I use this all the time too! I think I will just have to keep it forever. Usually I get rid of all my retiring things to make room for more new stuff but there are a few things I just can’t part with. 

  

Here is a side view of the bag so you can see how big it is. 

I hope you enjoyed these projects. Many of these items are still available but only for a few more days!! This catalog expires on Wed!!!

Saying Goodbye to Old Friends

By Lisa Freeman | May 27, 2017

Hey everyone!

In case you couldn’t make it to my “Get it before it’s gone retiring stamp a stack class” this past week, here are the pics of the completed cards.  We made these 12 cards using my favorite retiring papers and other items.

I am so sad to see these go but I look forward to using the new beautiful papers that are coming out on June 1st.  

I am also really going to miss the doilies that are shown on the 3rd card. I sponged them in sweet sugarplum ink to match the card. 

 

 

This first card uses one of favorite retiring stamp sets called Wetlands. I can’t believe it’s leaving. I love all of the stamps in the set, but especially this one. It is so versatile. I combined it with the floral boutique designer paper.

So Sad to See These Go!

By Lisa Freeman | May 7, 2017

Hey everyone,

Catalog transition time is such a bitter sweet thing for me. I am so sad to see some of my favorite stamp sets and designer papers leave, but then I get so excited about the new items that are coming. Here are a few of the things I am really going to miss! My favorite designer papers this year include the Floral Boutique, Blooms and Bliss, and the  Falling In Love papers.

They are all so be beautiful and go so perfectly with the matching sets. I love the night of navy in the Floral Boutique paper. It goes with almost any floral set in the catalog and is so versatile.  I do have good news though. We are getting a similar pack of paper in the new catalog but it will be in different colors. 

The Blooms and Bliss is another one of my favorites. I love the mint macaron color with the sugarplum. The mint macaron is also retiring so that color will be sorely missed. These two papers can be found on pgs 172-173 in the big catalog. At least the Dragon fly set is here to stay!! Woohoo!! 

This last one is perhaps my all time favorite paper that Stampin Up has ever had. It is called Falling in Love and I think everyone who has seen it has fallen in love with it. It can be found in the Occasions mini on pg 51. It makes gorgeous wedding and anniversary cards. I bought several packs just to keep for myself after it retires. I just love it.

There isn’t much time left to get these papers before they are gone forever. Once they sell out, they will not be available anymore. 

Also, don’t forget the clearance rack was just updated  with some great new stuff up to 60% off!! Super deals on there.

Hello Lovely Framed Art and Card Set

By Lisa Freeman | April 19, 2017

Hey everyone!

This month I am featuring the Hello Lovely Project Life kit found on pg 163 in the Stampin’ Up catalog.

I made an 8×10 framed art piece and 5 cards to go with it.  This would make a great gift for Mother’s Day or for a special friend. Who wouldn’t want to receive this gorgeous set?

This kit comes with 100 cards in 3 sizes that make it so easy to create beautiful projects. It was hard to pick out which ones I wanted to use because they are all so pretty.

I had tons on pieces left over to make even more cards or scrapbook pages. 

 

Classes are this Saturday(22nd) at 10am and next Thursday (27th) at 10 and 7. 

Cost of the class is $30 and includes all of your supplies including the frame, plus a free gift!
 
If you are in the Chesapeake/Va Beach area, I would love for you to come!
Just email me at stampgirl2@cox.net
 
If you can’t make it, but would like to get a set of the completed projects (minus the frame), I can send them to you for $30 also.
 
Or you can order the kit and make it yourself. All of the Project Life kits are retiring so make sure you order your kit now before it’s gone forever! Just click on the shopping cart in the top right corner. 

Have a great week!!
