Special Stamp Perks

Being a demonstrator has it perks.  The biggest perk is all the friendship you make.  A coupe of weeks ago I traveled to Tampa Florida to meet up with other demonstrators to preview the upcoming Occasions/Spring Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration Brochure.  

Tampa Convention Center Linda Bauwin

We met up at the beautiful Tampa Convention Center right on the River Front.  This Ohio Gal loved the warm breezes.

Getting a discount on all your paper crafting supplies from Stampin' Up! is another huge perk, especially when there is a new catalog being introduced and you get that new product first.

Well at the On Stage Event we all got name tags with a colored On Stage Button that was used for the Prize Patrol  Here is Deborah Makowski wishing she would be the next to be picked for prize patrol.  Little did she know everyone's color would be picked for prize patrol.

It was so much fun seeing the New Catalogs and Products first.  Here are pictures of Karen Burke and Mary Rodgers from Rochester, New York Area showing off their prize patrol winnings.

Would you like to be one of the first to receive some new product from the Occasions/Spring Catalog?  How about getting $155 of product for only $99?  Well during our Sale-a-Bration Sale that will start on January 5th you can get $155 worth of product for only $99 in your starter kit.  And that product can be new product from the Occasions/Spring Catalog.  What about asking for the kit for Christmas?  Love to have you as a member of my Stamp Family.

Handle Pillow Treat Bag

Open Pillow Box Linda Bauwin
 Isn't this Handled Pillow Treat Bag and Card adorable?  It is one of the project we did on my Stamp Retreat in October.  Today's video shows you how I used the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies to create it and also the 1" and 1 3/4" Circle Punches.

The Night of Navy Card Stock to from the Pillow Treat Bag measured 5" x 5 3/4" and I cut off one of the flap sides.  The Designer Series Paper I used was the Season of Cheer.  It measured 2" x 9".  I wrapped a piece a vellum around the designers series paper that measured 1" x 9".  I white embossed the Peace from the Peaceful Wreath Stamp Set.

That is all there is to it.  I did use the Snowflake Elements and the Iced Rhinestones to highlight the front of the bag and card.  The candy is in a 4" x 6" Cellophane Bag tied with the Silver Cording Trim.

The coordinating card is just a 3" x 3" Gift Card.

Don't forget you have three more days to cash in on the Online Extravaganza Sale.    Some items are already sold out.  Monday will be the second 24-Flash Sale.  Use Hostess Code 2M32CXGU with our Online Orders and receive a special gift from me along with Linda Loyalty Points.

Snowman Box Card

    Card on a Box Linda Bauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features an adorable Snowman Box Card.   It is a card with a little drawer to put a special little gift in.  

The best part it is super easy to make.  All you need is a piece of card stock measuring 4 5/8" x 4 5/8".  You will score on all four sides 1" of this piece of card stock.  This forms your box drawer.

For the card and the holder for the drawer, you will need a piece of card stock that measures 2 7/8" x 11 3/8".  You will score this piece of card stock at the 2 7/8", 3 13/16", 6 11/16", 7 5/8 and finally at the 10 1/2".

Since I used Basic Black Card Stock for the box card, I cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock for the inside that measured 2 5/8" x 2 5/8". This is where I wrote my greeting.

I used the wonderful stamp set from the Holiday Catalog called Snow Place that has the matching Framelit Dies called Snow Friends.  This is part of a bundle, so when you purchase together you saved 15%.

Lots Happening Don't Miss Out

Crafting Escape Linda Bauwin

WOW these words are so true in my world these days.  And stamping is one of those crafts that are quick, so you get instant gratification.  I can go to my stamp room with such a heavy heart and once I start focusing on the ink and paper my life issues become dimmer for awhile.  I hope you find the same experience.

Stunning Black & Gold Card

Wonderland Stamp Set Linda Bauwin - CARD-iologist Helping you create cards from the heart.

Today's video is this Stunning Black & Gold Christmas I shared a couple days ago.  I did the card for last month's Christmas Stamp Club. The ladies loved it so much I thought I would share just how simple it is to make when you have wonderful products like Stampin' Up!'s Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper.

This Specialty Designer Series Paper comes in a pack of 12 sheets that are 12" x 12".  There are 2 each of 5 double-sided designs printed with metallic ink on one side, and one each of 2 single-sided gold foil designs. They are acid and lignin free.

Sleigh Ride Edgelits Gift Tags

Linda Bauwin Tag

Thought I would share some of the gift tags we did at my recent Stamp Retreat.  We used the ever popular Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies with the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper.

For the tag itself we used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.  This punch makes making gift tags such a snap.

We used the Gold Glimmer Paper and the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  The words are from the Peaceful Pines Stamp Set.  We added color to our Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper with the Soft Sky Ink and a Dauber.  Added a little Gold Metallic Cord and you have a stunning Gift Tag.

Sleigh Ride Linda Bauwin

This Gift Tag we used the same Sleigh Ride Edgelits Die and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with the dauber and Soft Sky Ink.  But we also did some masking in the background using the 1/2' circle punch and used silver metallic cording..

So same great product but totally different looks.
