    Simple & Stepped-Up Backgrounds

    Jul 27
    Do you prefer simple or stepped-up cards? Often it depends on how much time you have to make a card. With three boys under seven and a baby due next month, simple is probably the route I should take, but I often don’t! I like all of the layers and embellishments that Stampin’ Up! has to offer. Whether you like the simple quick cards or have a little extra time to be creative, I have three cards to share that cover the bases. read more...

    Hi! Have you noticed the This Little Piggy Stamp Set (item 143922) in the annual catalog (US/CA)? If you are anything like me, it did not take you long to add it to your wish list. I happen to know lots of people who love pigs, including my brother, who inherited the “piggy” nickname when he was little. My husband also loves them with a passion. Needless to say, I could not pass up on getting this stamp set. So without further ado, let me show you what I created! read more...

    Ribbon Photo Mobiles

    Jul 13
    Hello, stamping friends! It’s Rochelle Blok here coming to you all the way from Melbourne, Australia. I’m so very excited to be showing you my creation today and the love (obsession) that I have with the ribbons that Stampin’ Up! has to offer this year in the new annual catalog (US/CA). If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ll know that my first order from the annual catalog was pretty much all Stampin’ Up!’s new ribbons. Swoon!!! They’re just stunning and I for one am a very happy girl with what they’re offering. There’s something for everyone and every occasion. So with that I’ve made two ribbon photo mobiles and accented them with the Daisy Delight Stamp Set (item 143669) and the Daisy Punch (item 143713). read more...

    A Picture Frame with Pizzazz

    Jul 6
    Hello, dear stampers! I am a huge fan of both home décor items and handmade things. So why not combine the two? A picture frame is great for adding pizzazz and a pop of color to a room. However, this time I didn’t want to use a boring standard frame and then just decorate it. After a little bit of thinking, I remembered the beautiful kraft packaging used for the Soft Sayings Card Kit (item 145466) or the Oh Happy Day Card Kit (item 142725)—which is often left over after creating the cards! read more...
