One Sheet Wonder - Make 9 cards in 9 minutes! (My first EVER video tutorial!)

The new 2016-2017 Annual Catalog is full of amazing new products, but one thing I often hear from new stampers is that they are overwhelmed with where to start.  Today I'm going to show you that all you really need to create beautiful handmade cards are stamps, ink, and paper!

This is my first EVER video tutorial, and I'd love to hear your feedback on if you like it and if you have any suggestions for improvement.  :)

See how easy that was?  

The products I used are all part of the Affectionately Yours Suite on pages 44 & 45 of the new catalog.  If you want to add embellishments like washi tape, ribbon or embossing, check out the matching accessories on those pages.  Also, there are hundreds of other choices for you in the new catalog.  How gorgeous would those cards be with a few pearls?  Or maybe stamp and cut out a few matching flowers and attach them with dimensionals? The possibilities are really endless.  What will you create today?

Good morning everyone!  It's finally here!  The brand new 2016-17 Annual Catalog from Stampin' Up! is LIVE!

Here are a few things to know:

  1. Because today is the first day of ordering, the system may be a tad bit slow.  Be patient.  Email me if you run into problems.
  2. Purchase the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit in June for $99 and you get $125 of anything you want from the new catalog, free shipping AND two extra stamp sets!  This offer is good through June 30th.
  3. Get extra Stampin' Rewards in June!  Parties totaling $350 or more in sales get an additional $35 in Stampin' Rewards!  That's more free stuff from your wish list!  Even better, use those additional rewards to purchase the Starter Kit and get even more freebies and an ongoing discount!  Get a few friends together and combine orders to reach the minimum, or host a craft night with your friends.  The new Tin of Cards kit would be a fun project!
