I made this project after creating a different card using Stampin' Up!'s A Sheltering Tree. The first one was in summer colors so I thought I should make one in fall colors. Colors used were: Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I like the look of the horizontal popped up area for the tree leaves. I stamped off the cajun craze for the lighter leaves. This was a very quick card to make and I like...

How time flies! I am a new Stampin' Up demonstrator, and I've been working on my sales strategy which is tricky. Because I travel full time, I had to build something that will work for my potential full time travelling customers. So, I am going to be the Paper Pumpkin fairy! I want to promote a product that takes up little space and comes with everything needed to be creative in one little box...

There was a workshop at our retreat in which we made two projects. This was the first one we made. I enjoyed working with Stampin' Up! Products I don't own. In some cases they are duplicates, or very similar to what I already have. In this case I already own a coffee set and would not justify owning another so similar, but I still enjoyed making the card and having it in my "collection"....

I made this project for my Father In Law's birthday coming up in January. You might be thinking, wow, now thats some pre-planning! Reality is that I had wanted to make this card for him for this January, but I could not find the seabirds stamp. I looked everywhere for it. Keep in mind I live full time in a 33' fifth wheel and am very, very organized. It was not to be found.

Fast forward...

I could not wait to get this video posted. I had planned to do a voice over but haven't learned that process yet. Instead of dubbing in my voice, I added lots of captions. I was able to compress 40 minutes of video down to 8 min 33 secs. I had a great time creating with this kit I absolutely love all of the layers!

DIY - Create A Set Of Stampin' Up! Cardstock Swatches | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I had this great idea while at my craft retreat. It didn't hit me until I saw a friend's awesome new cardstock organization. I asked her if she had every color. She said all but a couple of pieces. I went back to my desk and mulled that over awhile. Here's a quick video explaining what happened and what I did. I also show what I will use the swatches for. Video length is 5 min 9 sec.
