This month Stampin’ Up! has a great sale going on – and my family has some great occasions going on! I know many of you know what it’s like when great things collide! It’s Birthday week – for our country and for our daughter….so lots of celebrating last week. And the celebrations continue this week – as our anniversary comes up! BUT – if you follow me on Instagram – you know over there – I have managed to keep on posting!
One of the Stampin’ Up! specials this month is Buy 3 Get 1 Free on a selection of Designer Series Papers! So…….on my Instagram – I will be sharing THIRTY ONE samples of cards featuring the papers in the sale!!
Today I am posting the first week of cards that I featured on Instagram. All of them use papers that you can purchase now…and get one of the FREE. Look closely – because some of them hardly have ANY stamping at all – the papers themselves are so much fun that they do most of the creative work for you!
In fact – the card above and below – are both an example of this – only the words are stamped – all of the designs are paper! How quick and simple (and perfect for your summer stamping needs?!)
The Animal Expedition paper has several animals that are not even featured in the stamp set! How fun is that?
And before you think I have crammed in an extraordinary amount of Stamping time in an extraordinarily busy month…..just quit that, lol. The girls in my group and I are doing a ‘virtual swap’ this month, so several of the cards I have been sharing are theirs!
I love them! The girls and their cards!
These two cards featuring the Garden Impressions paper are mine. The butterfly one will be a camp project – and there will be a video coming!
It didn’t end up the way it started in my head – but when I was finished I was very pleased with the end result! Once the video is posted I will make sure to put the list up with the supplies needed.
This next card I call my Vera Bradley card! When I had all the papers in this packet spread out on the table it SO reminds me of Vera bags. It is hard to see in the pictures, but the presents are stacked and each tied with their own ribbon.
Now for my BIG (lol) announcement for today –
Instagram has launched a new “Instagram Tv” feature. It’s different than there current video feature – because the videos will stay put. You can find mine by going to my Instagram page and clicking on the IGTV icon (see where I have circled it?) The video I have loaded so far are cards that posted last week. It is sometimes easier to see them ‘live’ and not in just a photograph. Plus you get to hear me show off some of the features! Share, comment and follow my channel – if you do – you may just be one of my Week 1 winners! I will be sending cards that were featured each week to those that Share, Comment and Follow! I would LOVE your help as I build this new channel! Please and Thank You!
This July everyone who places any order on my website and uses the Hostess Code
will receive a FREE container or Basic Brads! (p 198 in the catalog)
