Weekly Deals

Is there ever really a good time to get a new computer? I purposely waited until the new year so things would be “quieter” but that ain’t happening. All that’s happened is that I’m now working from TWO computers instead of one just trying to keep up… eek!

Fortunately everything is working fine over at Stampin’ Up!  Here are their deals for this week which are particularly good if you happen to be needing Embossing Folders! 🙂

Weekly Deals - 27 January to 2 February

Even the Texture Boutique Machine (TBM) is on sale this week. This is a great little machine which enables you to keep your Big Shot purely for die-cutting, leaving you to use the TBM for dry embossing only – absolutely brilliant!

BIG NEWS is big news!

This is another of the stamp sets I couldn’t wait to get hold of when the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog was released, the Big News Stamp Set!

Coming up with ideas for cards was NOT difficult at all and with this first card I finally had an opportunity to use the cute new 2013-2015 In-Color Sequin Assortment. The Coastal Cabana Cardstock and Coastal Cabana Classic Ink against the white is so fresh. The Washi Tape is from the Everyday Adventure project Life Accessory Pack – gosh that’s a mouthful isn’t it, lol?!

The next card is another clean card with the Silver Foil Paper as the base for the card with Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White and a little more silver! The sentiment was heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. The Petite Petals Punch and Bitty Butterfly Punch adding the final touches when combined with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Big News - Silver Happily Ever After - JIF

This last card was a LOT of fun! With the words BIG NEWS in the sentiment I couldn’t resist using the Typeset DSP. This DSP isn’t as thick as the regular sheets but don’t be fooled by its appearance, it’s not tissue-paper either (as my mind keeps telling me…).

The Something for Baby Stamp Set with co-ordinating Baby’s First Framelits in Hello Honey Classic Ink gives the card just what it needs. The pram was stamped first in Hello Honey Classic Ink then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Power to give it some luster. The sentiment I also heat embossed but in Early Espresso Embossing Powder.

Scrapbooks in Motion…

Last night I achieved my goal of having all the months for 2013 completed leaving today to “simply” construct the front and back pages then write and print off all the journaling. That’s all, yet here I sit mid-afternoon and I am still working on the front pages, oops!

Thank goodness I had at least cleared all the tables in the Studio for the boys to make fishing fly’s as this allowed me two tables to work on simultaneously. Not that it necessarily made me quicker but at least I could feed my thoughts as I went. This was the table on the left side.

And this was the table on the right…

It’s slowly coming together and I have to say, I’m actually rather pleased with the end results but me being me keeps looking at the calendar and thinking that by now I should have all my DSP and Cardstock chosen for the 2014 albums with the page bases actually constructed.

Seriously, why do I set such HIGH expectations for myself? Hmmm, maybe it’s because we’re already more than a quarter of the way through the year and for once I’d like to be working in “conjunction” with time, instead of against it. Doesn’t that sound grown up, lol?!

Then again, it could simply be that I have SIX HOLIDAYS to scrap sooner rather than later. Yep, somehow I think that’s more likely my incentive so please excuse me as I do believe 2013 is calling! 🙂

Friendship Preserves!

There were such BIG plans for the Friendship Preserves Stamp Set that have yet to see the light of day in my Studio. I was going to do so much baking so these stamps could be highlighted but perhaps using Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock might count also, lol. I know, I know, VERY bad segue but it had to be done! Bit like how only in the English language could the letters “ue” create the sound “way” – what’s with that? 🙂

However, I digress. This card all but created itself as the Fresh Prints DSP Stack even suggests for you on the cover what colors could be used with the DSP. How cool is that? And with the Window Collection Framelits creating a focal point for the stamp, then with the word “bunch” comes flowers so, well, there really wasn’t much to think about after that!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Baked Brown Sugar
