Seasonal Sampler Printer's Tray Home Décor — Monthly Club

 

PrinterTray-HomeDecorGraphic-Lori

If you love to create and decorate your home or office for the holidays and seasons throughout the year, then this FUN Printer's Tray is going to be the exclusive home décor piece for you. Each month, we'll gather to create new inserts for the next month's upcoming holiday/season.  The first month's club fee will include the Printer's Tray; therefore, the class fee will be more than the following months.  You'll receive all of the supplies needed to make the inserts, plus, a free accessory and extra supplies to take home with you.

IN-PERSON CLUB DETAILS

I will supply the stamp set(s), any dies, punches, embossing folders and ink pads needed to complete your monthly project inserts.  You'll bring your own favorite dry and liquid adhesives, Tear and Tape, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Snips, Take Your Pick Tool, tweezers, etc.

 

IN THE MAIL CLUB DETAILS 

Each month I will send you a sorted and organized package in the mail (by the 27th of the month) with the supplies to create 7 independent panels that fit into the Printer’s Tray compartments. I will do all the dry embossing, die cutting, and punching for you (except what needs to be done with your new dies or punches).  Each month will feature a really awesome bundle or stamp set. Your package will include $20-$25 worth of Stampin’ Up! product and the supplies needed to complete the projects. (Does not include the bundle/stamp set, dies, punches, embossing folders or ink).  You'll have the opportunity to purchase the featured products and adhesives through my online, or use what you already have.

The home décor club kit will include the $20 Printer’s Tray (overall size 11" x 13") in the first months club fee only. The kits will include full color, step-by-step tutorial PDF. If you stay a part of the Seasonal Sampler Club for 6 months I will also give you $25.00 in FREE product of your choice! What a bonus!!!

For The Love of Felt — Stamp & Scrapbook The Longest Day for Alzheimer's fundraiser

LongestDayAlzheimersGroup-June2018-Lori-DSC06685
What is "The Longest Day"?  It is the day with the most light — the summer solstice, which is June 21st.  This is a time when thousands of participants from across the world — including my team of papercrafters — fight the darkness of Alzheimer's through an activity, and in our case, stamping cards and creating scrapbook pages.  Together, we use our creativity and passion to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

This will be my 4th year participating in The Longest Day to show my love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease.  This weekend (June 22-23), I am joining others around the world doing what I love, to honor people living with Alzheimer's, their caregivers, and those lost to the disease, while raising funds and awareness to advance the care, support research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.  I am doing this in honor of my dear friends' Mothers; and in memory of Jerry Johnson, a dear Colleague who lost his battle to this disease in 2015.

Alzheimers2018-GoodieBags-Lori-DSC06672

Each participant receives a goodie bag with a personalized name tag.  Last year, I was obsessed with the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions die set.  I continue to crave using the Stitched Shapes dies on almost every project...in all sorts of colors!  LOL!

AlzheimersFlowers-DaisyPunch-Lori

Do you recognize the stamp set and tool I used to create this beautiful bouquet?  Yessss!  It is the Daisy Delight stamp set and regular Daisy punch.  I'm mixing up this year's center piece, so stay tuned for it's reveal in a later post.  Sooo excited!

Alzheimers2018-MNTCard-Lori-DSC06662

There's always a lot more fun at any event when you provide supplies for a Make-n-Take card project.  My die cutting machine got quite the workout prepping...so did my right arm!  Haha!  I'm very happy the Stitched Labels and Layering Ovals dies were carried over into the new Annual catalog.

Alzheimers2018-LargeCookie-Lori-DSC06680

I have been fortunate to be awarded a nice donation of baked goods each year from Sam's Club.  When we sit down to papercraft for long periods of time, we need an adrenaline boost loaded with sugar!  Can you tell, I'm a papercrafter?  I even had to put my spin on a 'card layout' for the Bakery staff to decorate this yummy cookie.  They did awesome, don't you think?!!

HOW CAN YOU HELP US END ALZHEIMER'S?

During the 2-day crafting retreat, participants have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and slip them into the bucket representing the prize(s) they hope to win!  Prizes range from various Stampin' Up! product bundles, Roskag cart, and the biggest prize is a weekend retreat for a group of friends!  100% of the proceeds from raffle ticket sales go directly to the Alzheimer's Association.  Our team goal is to raise $1,000.

ForTheLoveOfFelt-DonationGraphic-Lori

I want to do more to help End Alzheimer's!  The new For The Love of Felt stamp set and Project Kit really speaks to me this year...maybe, it's because it is a phrase that I'm familiar with growing up as a kid..."for the love of..." and then we'd finish "why are there so many bugs"? or whatever the inquisitive situation was at the time.  Currently, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, and 16 million are serving as their caregivers. Sooo, "For The Love of Felt", why are sooo many people diagnosed with Alzheimer's?  What is happening to our brains?

I want to help End Alzheimer's, and could use your help because these numbers will only continue to rise unless we take action.  For each For The Love of Felt stamp set (Item #149650) and Project Kit (Item #149507) purchased together through my online store using Host Code 9JSHGF7Z, I will donate $10 of that purchase to the Alzheimer's Association. PLUS, with your purchase, your name will go into a drawing for a wonderful Stampin' Up! bundle...Above The Clouds stamp set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch.  Offer valid June 16-30, 2019. Drawing to be held on July 1st.

**This special donation event (The Longest Day) is not sponsored by Stampin' Up!, it is solely valid through me, Lori Mueller.

Alzheimer-HostCode

NOT A PAPER CRAFTER, BUT WANT TO HELP END ALZHEIMER'S?

That's awesome!!  Visit our Team page to submit your donation.  Your donation to the Alzheimer's Association for The Longest Day is 100% tax deductible.  Under the United States tax law, the Alzheimer's Assocation is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization.  Donors who write a check made out to the Alzheimer's Association, or who give by credit card online and include their name and mailing address, will receive a receipt once the donation has been processed.

DONATE NOW TO END ALZHEIMER'S

Farmhouse Merry Christmas November Tutorial Design Team Blog Hop

TutorialBundle-BlogHop-HeaderImage

Hello stampers and crafters!!  Welcome to the All Star Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop for September! You are joining during the round of tutorials (August–January). This team brings to you a "super bundle" of 12 tutorials using only Stampin' Up! products.  There are amazing projects in this bundle that range from traditional-style cards, fancy fold, 3D giftables and various techniques!  We each offer this in our own business for free with a minimum order, as well as, a stand alone PDF purchase.

TutorialBundleDesignTeam-Collage

Here are the sneak peeks...it's loaded with fun and excitement and something you don't want to miss out on. 

NovemberSneakPeekBundle-Collage

Each month's tutorial bundle is based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and lists both metric and imperial measurements. So whether you are a cms or inches person, we’ve got you covered!  Make sure to look for the full details at the bottom of this post.

I'm super excited about my extra project this month because it is showcasing the Festive Farmhouse Suite of products — the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and coordinating Farmhouse Framelits Dies.  All wrapped around a wooden crate die cut from the Wood Crate Framelits.  Since I can only show you a sneak peek of the project I created in the actual November Tutorial Bundle PDF, I'm sharing a 2nd project I made especially for this blog hop using most of the same products. It’s different from the project in the Tutorial Bundle as they are exclusive and you won’t see them anywhere else!

AllStarHop-FarmhouseChristmasBoxRight-Lori-DSC08345

My quest to get lots of handmade goodies made for the various Fall and Christmas craft and vendor fairs...treat boxes and packages are always a big hit...especially, when I fill them with chocolate!   I'm in LOVE with each pattern found in the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper pack...the various plaid patterns are spot on gorgeous!

AllStarHop-FarmhouseChristmasBoxOpen-Lori-DSC08347

The crate measures 3-1/4" wide, 1-3/4" tall, and 1-1/2" deep...just large enough to hold a 2-pack of Oreo cookies.  YUM!!  It would be perfect to hold other candies, a piece of jewelry, or the teenagers most beloved 'cold hard cash'.  LOL!

AllStarHop-FarmhouseChristmasBoxButtonBow-Lori-DSC08351

I'm into vintage and antiques and the Galvanized Buttons are super cute!!  Thread some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, tie in a bow, and set into place using glue dots.  This button works perfectly to hold the box lid closed.  Look at those CUTE little bows!!  Die cut from Galvanized Metallic paper to coordinate with the button.  I would venture to say this little box will be a keeper once the cookies or candy has been devoured.  haha!


The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin' Up! and include both Imperial (inches) and Metric measurements.  Soooo, no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase the tutorial and will be able to create the projects.

Last Day for 3 Sale-A-Bration Favorites!

Header_SAB_demo_Nov1615_NA
Quick reminder that 3 of our Sale-A-Bration items are on Limited Time - so limited, they end on the 15th!!  That's TODAY!!

Those items are:

  • Sky is The Limit (this set has been EXTREMELY popular this year)
  • Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper
  • Hello

 

            SABLimited-Page1          SABLimited-Page1a

            SABLimited-Page2          SABLimited-Page2a

So, if you have been sitting on the fence wondering if you really need this stamp set, here is a little inspiration to tempt you.  I created this card for a group of ladies that I swapped with, but I loved it so much that I used it for one of my stamping card classes, too.  It was a HUGE hit!!

HelloBirthdayGirl-Swap-Lori-DSCN4015

Creative Tips:

  • Melon Mambo cardstock and a pattern of Designer Series paper from the It' My Party paper stack really pop on the Basic Black cardstock card base.  I wanted something fun and spunky, so I offset them to be 'kitty-wompass' instead of a straight on matte layer.  Before adhering these layers to the cardbase, I took both colors of the Baker's Twine Combon (page 6, Occasions) and wrapped it around the layers and tied a bow to one side.  This just solidified the color combinations and added a little extra touch of character.
  • The focal point uses the 'hello' image from the Limited Time "Hello" stamp set (page 19 in the Sale-A-Bration brochure).  I inked it with Versa Mark, stamped it onto Mint Macaron cardstock, and heat embossed with Basic Black embossing powder.  The little party hat, from the same stamp set, was inked in Melon Mambo and stamped just above the letter 'e'.  I stamped it again on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut it out and popped it up over top of the image.  I did this because I love dimension; and it added a little character.  Then, I cut it out using one of my Circles framelits, added dimensionals and set in place.
  • I had a scrap strip of Melon Mambo setting on my table and stamped the 'birthday girl' image onto it with Archival Basic Black ink.  I seem to always go for a 'banner cut' end, so I decided to just cut the ends at an angle instead.  Again, I added dimensionals and set into place.

HelloBirthdayGirl-SABSwap-Lori-DSCN4020

And, there you have it!  A super cute...super easy card that can fit the bill for an adult or teen or young child.  I love versatility!!

You don't have much time left to place your orders and grab this set for FREE....please don't miss out!  It is never fun to "wish" for something after it is no longer available.  One $50 order through my online store and you can get this "Hello" stamp set for FREE.

Oh, and don't forget about my Sale-A-Bration Celebration and 50/50 Sale-A-Bration board for the opportunity of more fun and free products.  Check out the details here.

Creative Inking Birthday Bash Blog Hop

CreativeInkingHeader-Image

Hello and welcome to my first appearance on the Creative Inking Blog Hop!  I am sooo excited and honored to have been invited to join a wonderful group of creative crafters.  All the team members around the world have been working hard to inspire you as usual, so make yourself comfy and let's start hopping!

This month's theme is "Birthday Bash", which means that we create and share anything related to a birthday celebration. I am busting at the seams to share my "Work of Art" with you.  I originally designed this card for an organized card swap held during Stampin' Up!'s Annual Convention in July; and it fits the bill for a couple of summer birthday celebrations within my family and friends.  In the beginning, I thought it was a SUPER idea to use this card for a large swap exchange, but I (obviously) wasn't thinking about the mass production size of things.  Eeeeek!  Soooo, let me share my treasure of a tale with you.  haha

WorkOfArt-WatermelonBirthday-Lori-DSCN0079

Isn't this the cutest watermelon you've ever seen?!!  **squeal**  I took the large scalloped Circle framelit to die cut the watermelon rind.  Then I stamped across it using the long 'swoosh' stamp image from the Work of Art stamp set and inked tone on tone (meaning, I inked the stamp with Cucumber Crush and stamped onto the Cucumber Crush scallop die).  Looks yummy, don't you think?

I really love the patterns of our 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper Stacks this year.  These polka dots in Watermelon Wonder (from the In Color 12x12 Designer Series Paper Stack) really adds some cuteness...along with the Flower ensemble to enhance the festivities.

Now, the tale of this card is a lengthy adventure.  When I designed this card I immediately was WOW'd and wanted to share that with my card swappers, so I ventured to get everything cut, embossed, and ready for assembling.  You see those seeds? All 8 seeds?  Well, they are really raindrops punched from the Tree Builder Punch, but...we stampers never use a tool exactly as intended.  haha  Back to my story...do you know how many seeds you need to create 54 swap cards?  FOUR HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO (432)!! YIKES!  I decided to punch a bunch of extra seeds 'just in case' I should happen to spill the seeds...or, if some large wind blasted me...or, whatever sort of bad luck might have come my way.  Want to know a shortcut on how I punched soooo many seeds using the Tree Builder punch?  Check out the picture

I hope you enjoyed my cutsey Watermelon card that will make any birthday celebration a sweet one.  Now, you will want to check out Colleen's adorable creation.  Just click on the 'Next' button and you'll be hoppin'.  Have fun getting your fill of wonderful inspiration...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)

Celebrate Today for the Man in Your Life

CelebrateToday-ManBirthdayHeader-Lori-9726
So, who is the man in your life that is celebrating a birthday?  For me, it was my Dad...his birthday was this last Saturday...Happy Birthday, Dad!  I didn't get to celebrate his special day with him in person, but he did receive a wonderful sing-a-gram from me.  I definitely am not American Idol qualified, but I think he enjoyed it nonetheless.  He's such a good sport!

Today's share comes as the 2nd card project from my "Celebrate Today" stamp class last week.  This card was inspired by Jenny Peterson's creation I found on online (I think Pinterest).  The card sketch remains the same, but I did a bunch of switch-a-roo's with the color palette, designer series paper and embellishments.  The color palette originates from the Birthday Bash Designer Series paper (except the Sahara Sand)...Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadows, and Whisper White.

 

CelebrateToday-ManBirthday-Lori-9722

Here are the fine details....

  • The Whisper White card base measures 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" with the fold at the top.  Layered with Sahara Sand (4" x 5-1/4"), then topped with a piece of Birthday Bash Designer Series paper measuring  3-1/2" x 4-3/4").  I just love the pattern of this Crushed Curry paper...YUMMY!
  • The Mossy Meadows circle was die cut using the Circles Collections framelits...3rd from the smallest of the set.  I inked the decorative banner stamp from the Celebrate Today stamp set with Mossy Meadow Classic ink and stamped onto the circle...tone on tone stamping.
  • All topped with a strip of Whisper White that is banner cut using my paper snips, stamped with Crushed Curry and Sahara Sand Classic ink, and embellished with some Sweet Dreams Washi tape and a Sweet Dreams Designer (Sahara Sand) button and Basic Gray Baker's Twine.
  • To give the card some balance, I added some banners die cut using the Bitty Banners Framelits and the Banner die from the Circle Card Thinlit set of dies. Oh, and a little bit of bling of Rhinestones Jewels, which really isn't a 'manly' thing, buuuut....it's a 'just because' addition.  WOOT!

I really enjoyed this sketch...I hope you will give it a try, too.  All of the supplies to create this gem can be found at the bottom of this post.
