Yesterdays post included cute packaging using retired Designer Series Paper. Today’s post is using those scraps… Below is that picture… Again using scraps, I covered the backs of the strips with Whisper White Card stock by adhering with Tombow glue. I used the delightful tag topper punch for the top and tied ribbon through the holes. Voila! The bookmarks seemed a bit plain and I wanted a simple saying, so went to the computer and printed out sayings on Whisper White card stock. After cutting them down to size and using the classic label punch, I punched the ends doing one at a time as the words are longer than the punch. Again, these are just for passing out to a book group of friends or for using yourself. Enjoy!
Hi All – happy August! Today is a fun project using retired Designer Series Paper (or in the Stampin Up! World DSP) Of course, any paper can be used, but this is a fun way to make use of that retired product. I’ve used 6 x 6 cardstock and cut that down to size. Here is a picture of the finished product – five of them anyway – and so easy to do.
Here are the dimensions:
5″ wide scored at 1 1/8″, 2 1/4″, 3 3/8″ and 4 1/2″
4 3/4″ tall scored at 1″ at bottom. Burnish all score lines.
Look at the next picture to see how that was trimmed. Notice also the tear ‘n tape and where it is positioned. The first is the front side, the second is the inside of the package.
What’s fun then is to decorate! I used primarily the 1 3/8″ scalloped punch for the larger circle, and went from there, looking in my scrap bin for whatever I could find. On one of them are two sets of leaves from the leaf punch: one. In vellum, the other in Shaded Spruce to coordinate with the DSP. The spruce leaf is scored along each leaf and slightly curled to make it more three dimensional. The butterfly is reinforced on a piece of cardstock – cut from another retired DSP. The little dots are glitter dots – don’t you just love them? They bring the decoration to life. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings.
After puttting it together, I’ve pinched the top and punched a hole in which to thread the ribbon.

The theme for this month’s blog hop is to create a card that has a masculine theme and we just worked on our Bull’s Eye sailboat to prepare it for summer sailing ~ what fun timing. The Sailing Home stamp set from the new 2019-20 annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue seemed a perfect starting point for creating this card for my hubby’s June birthday.
Here are some details of this fun fold card:
- Pacific Point card stock cut to 8 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ and scored at 2 3/4″
- Whisper White card stock: 3 5/8″ x 7″ + a piece for the largest circle die in the Stitched Shape die set.
- Garden Impressions DSSP (designer series paper) cut in 3 3/8 square + inside piece 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.
- Come Sail Away DSP (from the 2019-20 SU! Annual catalogue) cut to 4 x 2 1/2″ x 4″ + a piece for the envelope flat 2 1/4″ x 6 (trim away excess after gluing to flap).
- Other items needed: mini dimensionals, Night of Navy/ Sahara Sand twine (from the new catty), Sailing Home stamp set, Smooth sailing dies, Night of Navy and Pacific Point inks, glue dot to hold the twine in place.

Wow, wow and wow! Attended local On Stage at Atlantic City yesterday. The new catalogue goes live in June, but as a demonstrator we get to see all the new “stuff” ~ and they are really, really nice. New guidelines from admin say we can share photos of new products, so I’ll do some of that in this post. Also will share some of the cards we made during the day that showcases new sets. I’ll be posting more as the days go by, so STAY TUNED! :O)
Above is the cover picture of the new catty.
Not to be outdone… SU! Retires some items: stamps, embellishments, bundles. They have updated the retiring list for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog with the current stamp sets that will be carrying over to the new catalog. Please know that stamp sets offered in clear mount or wood mount in the 2018-19 catalog that are carrying over into the 2019-20 will be offered in clear-mount and/o9r wood mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first!). If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. All carryover rubber stamps will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning Jun 4, 2019.
Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:
Hold on to Hope
Itty Bitty Greetings
Kindness & Compassion
Label Me Pretty
Love You to Pieces
Pop of Petals
Rooted in Nature
Sea of Textures
Sorry for Everything
Stitched All Around
This Little Piggy
Any other stamp sets in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog that are NOT on this list will be retired. Sorry again for the confusion! Stampin’ Up! is aware of the confusion and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.

SHARING SOME OF THE NEW PRODUCTS shown at local ON STAGE 2019 in Atlantic City yesterday. Wow, wow and wow… SU! Has done it even better; they have “one-upped” themselves… I’ll be posting pictures a bit at a time so as not to overwhelm :o)
The Country Floral embossing folder from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue is gorgeous! I wasn’t going to get it, but all the posts showed these beautiful images and I couldn’t resist.
Participating in my first Blog Hop…! Once you read mine, feel free to visit the next blog by clinking on the appropriate links below.
Today’s card is prepared using Petal Pink card stock (CS). The embossed layer is 4 X 5 1/4… spritz the paper first as this folder makes deep impressions and the spritzing allows the CS some “give” to accept those more easily. After embossing, allow to dry for just a bit. Then with Petal Pink ink and a sponge dauber, rub that color over the raised areas ~ love how gentle this coloring is and how it enhances the embossed design. Glue this piece to Petal Pink 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 CS. Using the whisper white flax ribbon cut at about 6 1/2″ and wrap this around both pieces, adhering in back with glue dots. Then cut a piece of the whisper white polka dot ribbon at about 7″, placing this on top of the flax ribbon, using tape to adhere it on the back. Using the Pretty Label punch, create a label out of whisper white; rub the edges with Petal Pink, add your sentiment (I used one of my favorites from Perennial Birthday); add dimensionals and place on ribbon. Using another short piece of the polka dot ribbon, tie a knot. Viola! Attach all of this to the 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of Petal Pink CS with dimensionals. Card front is done :o) On the inside adhere a piece of whisper white cut at 3 3/4 x 5 with your favorite sentiment.
For the envelope flap, I embossed another piece of Petal Pink CS cut at 2 1/4 x 6, glued it to the flap and bingo, the card is ready. Fun, easy, and lovely.

Hi folks! Surprise – I’m actually blogging something…. what I have most fun doing is creating cards, and this blogging business is just not very comfortable to me – so please be patient, OK? All I’m going to do today is add some photos, talk a LITTLE bit about each/ or some and see where this goes.
This first card is special – a first try that turned out so cute! I should really include a picture of how it opens. It’s a kind of explosion card and since it was first try I made it small so as not to waste/ throw away card stock. Can you imagine? :o)
The second card on the right was really a fun and messy project but turned out so beautiful, I loved every bit of it. Using dampened tissue paper and sprinkling brusho onto the wet tissue created these neat colors. Once dry, crinkle the tissue, then gently spread it out without making it flat. Leave the crinkles in it! Glue this to your card stock crinkling it even more. Then put it through your big shot to flatten it. Embellish however you like. The buttflies are from the wonderful botanical butterfly DSP during Sale-a-bration.
