Stampin’ Up! Hello December 2016 Card Making Project

Good morning!  It’s back to reality for us today – where “reality” means “work”!  World Card Making Day and OnStage Local were so much fun – it was easy to lose track of the real world!  We, the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from Amy’s Inkin’ Krew, had the bestest time ever!


Now – this is my first post of the day.  And it’s going to be quick!  Cuz….later today, I’ll be posting some pictures from OnStage.  Where “OnStage” means “sneak peeks of the 2017 Occasions Catalog.  Won’t be a lot of chatting.  Just a lot of pictures – so…be sure to come back, okay?

In this post, I want to remind you of my Double Peppermint Rewards special – this is the very last day!  So, read on down for the details, but here’s the Bottom Line:  when your order reaches $50 before shipping and tax, you’ll earn DOUBLE peppermints.  So….$50 gets four, $75 gets six, $100 gets eight…you get the drift.  And 16 peppermints total gets YOU a free $40 gift from me and I’ll ship it directly to you…for free!

Second – a couple of pictures of how Finn spent his playdate – I know you’ve missed him the past couple of days.  

Hanging with his friends….

Resting with “Uncle” Luke (who has the patience of Job.  And Mother Teresa.)….

And “smiling” ever-so-cutely for the camera!  Seriously – look at those little lips!

And playing and playing and playing!  He was glad to see us, but…he really had a great time with his newfound friends!

The last thing to share in this post is a few pictures of what we made at the World Card Making Day event on Friday.  These cute little tags and notecards used the Project Life Hello December 2016 Accessory Pack.  Check it out right here in my Online Store.

This project was a bit of a revelation for me – I’d not really considered the things besides memory keeping that could be done with the Accessory Packs from Project Life.

These little tags are made with Whisper White and Crumb Cake Notecards and Envelopes.  Cut the cards in half the long way and round the corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder.  Then we cut tiny “mats”….

…and “strips” – using the matching envelopes (that we didn’t need to be “envelopes” cuz…waaaay too big!)…

…and added goodies from the Accessory Pack!


The pack even includes a teensy-weensy-tiny-little-bitty stamp set!

But – we used the wonderful Tin of Tags stamp set for these tags!  With Real Red ink.

We also made a few full sized note cards.

This is far from all of the notecards and tags we made – and we’ve still got goodies leftover from the Accessory Pack!

If you haven’t tried using Project Life Accessory Packs to make cards…give it a go!  They’ll definitely be on my list from here on out!

So – get in today on the Double Peppermint points – the time to hesitate is past, it’s time to shop! Maybe for some Stitched Shapes framelits and a few coordinating (and 25% off!) stamp sets?!? 🙂

And look for a second post this afternoon sneak peeking the 2017 Occasions Catalog.

Until then….

Stitched Shapes Framelits Die Set and Matching Stamp Set Sale


These are new Circles, Ovals and Squares Framelits – 12 dies in all – that cut your shapes while simultaneously creating a hand-stitched look for your card-making projects! These will be “officially released” in the 2017-2018 annual catalog, but we get to buy them right now!

On top of that, SU! has a great 25% sale off coordinating stamp sets from 1 – 30 November! Click here to open up a PDF with the list of stamp sets that are on sale.  Or – you can go right to them in my Online Store….here! 🙂

And there’s more great news…although the 25% off stamps sets sale ends 30 November, you’ll still be able to get the Stitched Shapes Framelits after that date! Cool, huh? 🙂


  • Stitched Shapes Framelits available beginning today! (will continue to be available through the 2017-18 Annual Catalog!)
  • 1 – 30 November 2016: select stamp sets 25% off
  • Promotion Deadline (25% off select stamp sets): 30 November 2016, by 11:50 PM (MT)

FYI, here are the measurements for the full cutout pieces for the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies:

  • Circles:
  • Squares:
  • Ovals:
    1-3/4” x 13/16”
    2-1/4” x 1-5/16”
    2-3/4” x 1-13/16”
    3-1/4” x 2-5/16”

The stitched embossing is approximately 1/16” from the edge of the cutout. So the dimensions are approximately 1/8” smaller than the cutouts.

    • Yep – he makes the cutest little faces!! Thanks much, Sherry – and I had a great time this past weekend with you and the other ladies! So glad you were able to come! 🙂

  3. Cute cards. I love how these are so user friendly. Sometimes complicated cards can be intimidating. These are so doable and absolutely adorable.

    • That’s very true! I love being able to just stick a few embellishments (that’ve already been cut up and everything!) and bada bing! Thanks, Jaimie! 🙂
