I thought I’d start with the card but I have so much to share with you! It has been an extraordinary week at Stampin’ Up!! I needed a birthday card for one of my boys’ best friends and I wanted something special for her. What better than a little pinwheel?? I love the bright happy colors and prints from Floral District so I thought they would be perfect for this sweet little girl. I used a little color blocking behind the pinwheel and then chose a piece of DSP that had a coordinating look on both sides. The little flowers are great peeking out, don’t you think? The pinwheel is held together with a brad but it seemed to need something else so I added a button on top of it (using a glue dot). I like that extra little detail! The sketch is a fun one and it comes from Sketch Frenzy Friday. Don’t forget to go take a look at all the DT’s designs…they are fabulous!
Now on to all the information from Stampin’ Up! First, they have introduced a brand new online class called The Basics. This class offers innovative ways to get the most out of your supplies (from stamps to the Big Shot) with clever tips and all the techniques you need to start creating with success. Divided into six PDF documents this class includes written instructions, step out photos, a few videos, and supply lists for 30+ projects. It is perfect for the beginning stamper or for one who would like a reminder on great techniques.
Yes, it is true…Stampin’ Up is adding a Photopolymer Stamp selection to their product line! It is starting with this fun and trendy set called Designer Typeset. The best part? It is sure to have the quality that Stampin’ Up is known for with the convenience of a clear stamp. Don’t even get me started on the price. This set has 57 stamps for only $13.95. Wow!!
Finally, with the arrival of March, the next in the “Best of” series has arrived. This one is Best of Flowers. These really are gorgeous images and take a look at the new flower (with the pink outline). It coordinates with the 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle punch. Awesome!
I know…lots of information! It really was a great week! Now I have been subbing at my boys’ school and will be doing so again this week so I won’t have much posting going on. Of course I will be here on Wednesday for Freshly Made Sketches though. We also have some great stuff happening over at Freshly Made Sketches this week. Make sure you check into the site on Tuesday for a fun announcement!
I hope you have a great week. If you have any questions on any of these promotions, please don’t hesitate to contact me! Thanks so much for dropping in!
