Happy National Popcorn Day





I love popcorn!  And I love the Popcorn Box Thinlits.  

This treat box is just the right size.  It's small, which prevents you from paying too much to fill the box and it is easy to assemble.  I have paired it with the new Occasions Catalog stamp set Truly Tailored, Tailored Tag Punch and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  All these wonderful supplies are from the true Gentleman Suite in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I also used the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper with shimmer ribbon that you can only get from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog and the color is Calypso Coral which is one of my favorites. The stamp set that I used with this paper was the Happy Birthday Gorgeous and colored the images with my Stampin Blends.

Truly Tailored

Happy National Milk Day Everyone. Need a masculine card? I can help. Isn't this a nice looking card? Love the new designer series paper, it just makes the card. You can find this paper and the super cool corduroy ribbon in our occasions catalog. Don't have one of those? let me know. Have a Dapper Day everyone. 

Truly Tailored is an awesome stamp set.  Features 10 stamps.  Wood mount is $28.00 however, the clear block mount red rubber stamps are only $20.00  These is True Gentlemen Designer Series Paper and a punch to complete this suite of masculine stamping.


I used Tranquil Tide Card stock for the base with a Night of Navy topper and Crumb Cake and the True Gentlemen DSP. Stitched Shape framelits for the sentiment and to finish was a strip of Night of Navy 3/8" of Corduroy Ribbon.

This card turned out lovely.

Tip Tuesday - January 9, 2018

Tip Tuesday! Every Tuesday, I will be bringing a tip regarding the Stampin' Up! catalog and other things about stamping and card making. Today's tip is a very helpful one.
Do you remember when you first got your Stampin'Up! Catalog? You tore through that thing to find the perfect stamp set and coordinating embellishments and all was right with the world.

DID YOU KNOW??? When you see a grey image of a stamp - it means that there is a coordinating framelit (die cut) to go with it. AND when you see a light yellow image of a stamp - it means that there is a coordinate punch.  Just take a look at the pictures below.
Be on the lookout for stamp sets with coordinating framelits and punches because sometimes there will be a BUNDLED price which can save you 10%.
Ok - That was Tip Tuesday for today. In the near future, I will have videos that will go along with Tip Tuesday. Can't wait to show you. Happy Tuesday.
