July Promo Buy 3 DSP Get 1 FREE

We are loving the Broadway Bound products, which look amazing with the paper from the suite (as seen in the balloon gift bag project). But we are especially excited about the result when we pair this versatile bundle with some of the papers from the current Designer Series Paper sale. Talk about a whole new look with each new paper! This sale is the perfect time to show off all the options. Nobody can ever have too much pretty paper, especially while it’s buy three, get one free! Check out the promo HERE !

Hugs, Linda

Share What U Love

And I LOVE this new paper!! You really cannot appreciate this new Designer Paper until you see it in person. I know what you are thinking-- $ 27 for paper!!!??? But ladies it is worth every penny. It is chosen from handpainted backgrounds and almost every page has a glimmer or shine to it. It is much thicker than other DSP and would be great for many 3D projects. Here are a few sample cards!

The flowers are just fussy cut from one of the sheets of the sheets of this gorgeous paper!

Check it out HERE 

You will also want TO SHARE WHAT YOU LOVE. Linda

New Ink Pad Video

As most of you know, Stampin'UP! has changed the design of all of their ink pads. I love them--- much easier. It is a little bit of a learning curve, but totally better than before.I thought this video may be of some help to those who have not had a chance to use them yet! :)

Whats Wrong With MY Stamp???

There is nothing wrong with it. The Disinktive rubber stamps are a new way of stamping! This was first introduced by Stampin'UP! in the 2018 Occasions Catalog! Remember these beautiful cards?
That's what gives that flower that "distinct" 3D image! Check out this video of a new stamp set called "Healing Hugs" Pg 110 and it is soooo pretty! This kind of stamping technique cannot be found anywhere else!
