Maui Stampers Team Shoebox Swap

Last month, a few of the Maui Stampers got together to make cards. It’s fun to gather as demonstrators: we talk shop, catch up on each other’s lives, and make a LOT of cards. The Shoebox Swap format makes it go quickly, and even allows long-distance members to participate (we missed you, Peggy!)

We made gorgeous cards:

Peggy designed a fabulous valentine using the Sealed with Love bundle and punched ALL THE PIECES for us, since she sent hers in from Washing State.

Desiree created a beautiful card with the Special Reason bundle, showcasing the versatility of using both positive and negative die cuts:

Linda’s iridescent dragonfly using the Dragonfly Dreams bundle was stunning in Glimmer Paper:

And Heather created a card we all loved using Beautiful You:

There’s another image inside, and one of these days I’ll share this card again with that image. I made an error on mine and need to borrow the stamps from Heather to fix it!

There were other cards, but those crafters have their own blogs, and I’ll let them share.

Sending RemARKable Love

Welcome to the January 2017 RemARKable Blog tour.  Our focus this month is Sending Love – which in addition to a wonderful practice, is a fabulous Stampin’ Up! product suite!

RemARKable Blog Tour

I’ve taken the obvious route and chosen Valentines, but these projects could easily be adapted to other expressions of love – wedding, anniversary, or just Love ya, Babe!

This is our fabulous Popcorn Box thinlit made up in Blushing Bride.  There’s a panel of Falling in Love DSP behind all of that embellishment, as well as a Delicate White Doily spritzed with Sahara Sand and smushed for texture. (SMUSH is an active verb.)

Stitched Shapes Framelits will be available again on January 16th – be ready to order!!  Product #145372 will cost $30 and will be sold as supplies last.

The Sealed With Love set sentiment is stamped twice with Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand – photopolymer stamps make the placement easy as can be!

I LOVE the Sending Love Glassine Sheets, and they are perfect for creating the little envelopes in the Love Notes Framelits.  I also love how that row of hearts fits perfectly across the top of the little note insert.

The TIEF is called Falling Petals, but let’s be serious.  They’re hearts.  Sheesh.  {wink}
