SSINK Bags ‘N Tags Merry Little Christmas

Thank you for joining the SSINK Team today as we’ll be showcasing Bags ‘N Tags.  I always have a few decorated bags made up for last minute gift giving.  I used that fun plaid paper from Merry Little Christmas Suite to make today’s project.

All I’ve been making is Christmas, so I wanted to do something different.  Found the idea for this from Stampin’ Georgia, who had tons of great ideas!  Thanks Georgia!  I love the ease of stamping with Merry Little Labels & just punching out with the coordinating Everyday Label Punch!

I love the stamp with the deer that says “Let it snow”… but it doesn’t apply to me much here on Maui!  So I cut up my stamp using my paper snips to make it more useful for me!  Very freeing!!

Found the perfect sized Happy Birthday in the Ready to Pop set.

Before I leave, I need to show you that it does snow in Hawaii.  Sometimes right on my mountain, Haleakala!  So don’t tell me it doesn’t get cold here!Image result for snow on haleakala 2017

Who has hiked in Haleakala?  Or gone up to the top to see the sunrise?  Freezing cold, right?!!

Hope you got some inspiration to help with your gift packaging!  For more great ideas, check out the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team Page!

SSINK Clean & Simple Christmas Using Merry Little Labels

I have a Clean & Simple Project to share with you today.  Tags using Merry Little Labels Stamp Set and the coordinating punch, Everyday Label Punch.  The colors all come together well using Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I haven’t punched a hole in the top of these tags yet, because I just might put them on the front of a card.  That would look pretty with a little embossed paper in the background…

For this tag, I just punched Old Olive cardstock & laid it sideways.

Tag #2 has some Black Mini Sequin Trim peaking out.  Love how tiny this is!

Don’t you love the plaid paper in this DSP?!!  This one has a gold stitched shape circle underneath and is embellished with Gold Faceted Gems.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure and go to the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Page for more Clean & Simple Christmas ideas!!

ICS Blog Hop Merry Little Labels

Thank you for joining us at our Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop for December!  Our theme today is “A December to Remember” and you’re sure to find some great ideas as you hop along!

I have a fun little box to show you today that starts with our Pizza Boxes that are retiring!!  Waaaa!  I love these!  Make sure you GRAB SOME HERE before they’re gone!!  The box is decorated with Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape (my favorite colors!), Mini Sequin Trim, and Labels to Love punched out with the Everyday Label Punch.  Quick & simple to make!  In fact, we’ll be making these in my final December Class next Monday, Dec. 11th at either 10 am or at 5:30 pm.  2 spots left!!  Email me for details.

Thanks so much for joining us today- we are so happy that you’re taking part in our Blog Hop & would love your comments!!

Next up is Deb Naylor, the Flying Stamper!  You won’t want to miss what she’s come up with!

Stamparatus Reservations Tomorrow

If you missed out on getting the Stamparatus ordered last time here is your chance.  The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided Stampin’ Up! with some very important information: WE LOVE this new stamping tool! The response was so amazing that they decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.

As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period they will take as many orders as they receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open! WAHOO…no stress!

  • Beginning March 19, Stamparatuses will be shipped in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19.
  • In order to accommodate demand, one reservation per customer.
  • This is the last chance for you to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

The reservation window opens at 11:00 am (Hawaii Time) on Tuesday December 5. 

The Stamparatus retails for $49.00!  You will be able to reserve it via my website, you’ll need to input a credit card but you will not be charged until it ships, at that time if Sale-A-brations is still going on you can add to your order and earn a Sale-A-Brations item.  This would be one reason I would strongly recommend you reserve your tool right away!

Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store;  in this case, you will click the RESERVE LINK on the Stamparatus Page ( below the video) which will take you to the reservation page.

If you have any questions , just ask me!

Oh, and I promise to have a FREE CLASS for those who order the Stamparatus through me- so that we can get used to all the great features this tool offers!

SSINK Case the Design Team Member- Darla Roberts

Today the Stylin’ Stampin INKspiration team will be CASE-ing Darla Roberts!  Darla took a break from our team for a bit last year when she was going through lots of stress and challenges, but she’s BACK!  I finally got to meet Darla at On Stage a few weeks ago & immediately felt like we were old friends!  She is full of energy & enthusiasm & has a heart of gold.  Love you, Darla!!

Here’s the card I made after browsing Darla’s Blog, Stampin’ With Darla.

And here’s Darla’s card:

Same card.  Different colors.  The leaf stamp from Colorful Seasons is so pretty!  Thanks, Darla, for the idea for this simple card!

Can’t wait to see what everyone else CASED from Darla!  CLICK HERE to go to the SSINK BLOG!  And thanks for stopping by today!

Fleece Navidad

Did you notice this cute saying in Barnyard Babies?!!  This is perfect for where I live in Upcountry Maui!  I’m surrounded by cows, goats, pigs, horses, & sheep that I say “Hi” to when I go on my morning walks.  

I made a Charlie Brown Tree using Totally Trees and found the ornaments & star in the Tin of Tags set.

So, Happy Christmas to everyone!!  It’s coming soon.  I’m trying to enjoy each moment & not stress!

Be sure & check out Crystal & Anne’s December calendar pages!

 

 

ICS Blog Hop – Join The Fold Beautiful You

Welcome to a special Inspire, Create, and Share blog hop! We recently attended On Stage in Salt Lake City with 2,700 demonstrators to see new products, hear training, and connect with friends. Our team met for dinner and to swap cards designed with fancy folds. Meeting together is the best and of course we want to share the fancy fold card designs with you!

The front of my card starts with this Beautiful You girl.  Beautiful You combined with Eastern Elegance.  Wait till you see when you open it up!!

Isn’t that cool?!!  I’m calling it a Pop Up Book Card.  I found a similar one on Pinterest, but had to convert it to fit into a standard sized envelope.

I’m not sure how to explain the fold, but here’s a diagram that I’ll be using when I make it again.

Does that help at all?  With some encouragement, I might try to make a video (my first!)  of this fun fold!  That’s something I want to challenge myself to do. But I am a bit technically challenged, as you may have noticed!  I had to laugh when I returned from On Stage & looked at my blog posts that I’d made on my IPad.  The pictures are sideways & upside down!!  Oh, brother!

Being a demonstrator means you meet people from all over the world, get to travel for events, we get the first peek at new products. Only demonstrators get the opportunity to attend Stampin’ Up! events to see the new catalog in hand, use the products, and the perk of bringing home new stamp sets, projects, and sometimes more! You can join one of our teams and receive all of these demonstrator perks. You select your starter kit, it is $125 in product but you only pay $99 and includes free shipping. Just ask your demonstrator where to get started to sign up OR if that is me CLICK HERE!

 

Be sure and continue on this blog hop!  Next up is Audra Monk, who I met at Salt Lake!  She’s so sweet and has a wonderful blog!  You won’t want to miss any of these very creative folds!  And please leave us a few comments!!

Thank you for joining us on our Alaskan Achiever’s Blog Hop!  Those hopping today are Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all around the world who have achieved the prestigious Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip that only a limited number around the world achieve.

We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin’ Up! products.  I live in the United States (Hawaii) and would love to help you if you have any questions.

I have a Fun Fold Project to share with you today.  I copied the fold from my friend, Cathy Autrey, who sent me a beautiful card a while back.  Does anyone know the name of this fold?  It’s really cute & simple!

Beachy Little Christmas!  What a perfect stamp set for us Hawaiians!!  And I get to play with my new Stampin’ Blends!!  I used Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake, and the markers come with a light and dark to make the coloring  come out great!  So easy to look like an artist!

 

Thank you for joining us today – we are so happy that you are taking part in our blog hop.  Make sure that you don’t miss out on one blog as there are some incredible designs you are going to see today to inspire you.  And please leave me a comment!!  It just makes my day to hear from my subscribers!
