Card Samples from the Upscale Swappers


I love my stamping buddies.  They are the BEST!  Remember that I said I had the flu in January/February and was sick for quite awhile?  Well, the ladies in the Upscale Swap Group decided to each send me the cards that they swapped last month, even though I was too sick to stamp cards and send to them.


From Millan.Net

So here are a few of the cards that I got.  I've listed the main stamp set used on each card.  Of course, if you have any questions about how any of the cards were made, feel free to contact me!
 Anita Ferre - Secret Garden, Secret Garden Framelits Dies, Vine Street TIEF (SAB)

 Candy Leggett - Just Thinking, Sycamore Street DSP (SAB)

 Deb Currier - By the Tide

Judi Cayton - Feel Goods, Bitty Butterfly Punch

Wasn't that just the sweetest thing?  It made me feel so special!  It was like getting a hug in the mail.

There are a few more cards that I will be back to show you in a day or so. Until next time...

This and That and Other New Things

Well, Sale-a-bration is over.  Where will I go?  What will I do?
From Millan.Net
(too dramatic?)

Fortunately, Stampin' Up! has something else for me to look forward to!  One is a new "This and That" product line that has lots of fun ideas for the scrapbook-on-the-go. It brings the old-fashioned scrapbook into the hipster age.  This kit includes This and That Journal, This and That DSP, This and That Rotary Stamp, This and That Designer Stickers, and This and That Designer Washi Tape.  (I'm so excited to try this out!)  You can buy the This and That products separately, but why would you do that when you can get all five together and save 15 percent (March 23 - April 30 only).  Contact me for more info.


Here's a quick video about the "This and That" product line. 


And there's a new stamp set available for you to purchase.  It's a early look at something that will be in the new catalog in June.  It's called  A Round Array.  This stamp set coordinates perfectly with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch (introduced in the 2013 Spring Catalog).  You can purchase this new stamp set in a bundle with the coordinating punch, or you can purchase just the stamp set by itself if you already have the punch.  If you purchase the bundle, you will get a 15% discount!  But this offer is only good from March 15 - May 30, 2013.

Just in case you can't see the above flyer very well, here are the details:

So I guess with these new things to look forward to, I'll survive Sale-a-bration being over. From Millan.Net

 From Millan.Net
I do have a few samples to show you today.  They are two additional inserts for my 8x8" shadowbox frame.  I'm a little behind, holiday-wise, in completing these, but I was determined that I was going to get them done.

 Many of the items used on this are from the Artisan Embellishments Kit in the Spring Catalog.  It also uses the More Amore Specialty DSP and the Hearts a Flutter stamp set, along with a few other things here and there.

 And even though I'm DONE with snow (but it might not be done with us yet!), I had seen a winter insert for these shadowboxes that I just HAD to make.  When my friend Emily came over this week, she thought that this would be a great project to work on.  I'm glad she suggested it!

Here it is in the frame.  I had to take the picture at an angle to try to keep the flash from causing too much distraction.

I hope that we will soon be seeing some of this.  I think it's high time!

Until next time...

Two Days Left to Sale-a-Brate This Year!

January 22 - MARCH 22, 2013

Did you notice that date above?  Sale-a-bration will be OVER this Friday.  I may cry.
From Millan.Net
But all good things must come to an end.  Today I have a variety of samples using pretty much everything that is available in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  So get ready to be inspired!

 Madison Avenue stamp set, Sycamore Street DSP, and Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack.

 Made with Lemonade Stand Digital Disc - another item available for Sale-a-bration.  If you like to make personalized cards and scrapbook pages but don't always have the stamps and/or inks that you want, digital may be the way to go.  You can re-size the images, make them different colors, add embellishments that look like the real thing, and so much more!

 Made with One Big Sale-a-bration 2013 Digital Disc, Sycamore Street DSP, and Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack.  This is a hybrid card - made with the digital disc and then extra embellishments added for dimension.

 Patterned Occasions stamp set - isn't this Band-Aid just so cute?

 Pretty Petites stamp set, Sycamore Street DSP, Sycamore Street Ribbon & Button Pack, and Petite Curly Label punch (the punch will be available for purchase after Sale-a-bration, but not the stamp set or DSP).

Vintage Verses.

Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set and Vine Street TIEF.

 Feeling Sentimental stamp set and Sycamore Street DSP.

Box made with the Happy Hello Simply Set Card Kit.  Great for making quick and simple cards, but also makes an adorable box for a little gift for someone.  (Everything you see in the picture is included in the kit except for the cello bag and Daffodil Delight ribbon used to tie the bag closed.)

If you see anything above that you haven't gotten yet, you still have time.
From Millan.Net
Just place an order of $50 in merchandise and you can choose any one of the Sale-a-bration items for free.  You can order right now - you don't even have to leave your computer!  Just go to my demonstrator website at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/jaynestamps/ and click on the "Shop Now" button at the upper right corner.  Or you can contact me and I'll be happy to place an order for you.  But it MUST be done before midnight Friday, March 22.  As always, contact me if you have any questions.

Until next time...
