Product of the Week: Country Floral Embossing Folder


I am the first to admit, I do not need one more embossing folder since I have them all practically...until I saw this one. The Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A photo just doesn't do it justice, but these flowers burst off the paper as if they were actually alive. We made this simple card at class this weekend. I chose a monochromatic color scheme (mint macaron) to let the embossing folder really take the stage and shine.  I used the Painted Seasons flower and stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide (Life Is Grand stamp set). It's finished off with the Tea Room ribbon combo pack from the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up Annual Catalog with just a hint of sparkle. I will feature projects on my Facebook Live this week (Thursday night) using the embossing folder. 

Here's the best news. The Country Floral Embossing Folder is FREE with a $50 purchase. I predict it will go on back order, so don't wait around on this must-have. 

Item # 149698 $0 (FREE with $50 purchase) 

See this stunning card from the Stampin' Up Occasions 2019 Catalog: You'll see how to make it on my FB live this Thursday @9pm. Set your alarm and join me on my FB page: papermadeprettier

Flowering Desert Stamp Set Catalog Case +The Story Story


Who would have thought a cactus could make a sweet and loving card? Color me surprised, because this prickly Flowering Desert stamp set is adorable!  The sentiment comes from a FREE Saleabration set called Part Of My Story and it holds a special place in my heart.  I was asked to be on the first Demonstrator Story Team this past summer. Stampin' Up whisked me right out of a hot August week into a gorgeous retreat center in Lehi, Utah for four glorious days of fun. I met 10 of my now-closest stamping friends! Stampin' Up video-taped our Stampin' Up stories to show at our 30th Anniversary celebration at OnStage Live in Orlando. It was an experience I will never forget! 


Part Of My Story stamp set is FREE with $50 purchase and watch for a coordinating punch soon!

Flowering Desert Stamp Set

 I cased this card the 2019 Occasions Catalog for a swap that I participated in. Wondering where that striped paper comes from? The subtles designer series paper stack!   


I ran out of calypso coral so I tried a blushing bride one. It's cute, but I think I like the coral the best. Which is your favorite? 


Purchase all supplies to make this project below. Make sure and pick up $50 to get the FREE Part of My Story stamp set.  Or....Start your Stampin' Up story today and get the starter kit of $175 in goodies for only $99!

Product of the Week: Incredible Like You project kit


Y'all know I adore kits. The Incredible Like You kit is no exception.  I ordered this one right off the bat when I could in November and made it right away. I also have enjoyed using it in classes like the Creating With A Twist party I had this weekend with a FUN bunch of crafters. My co-worker and friend Tony invited a fun bunch of crafters over and we put these kits together. Everyone preordered their own kit to have. The cards were a snap to create, and we had a blast with food, fun and laughter galore! 


All you need to put the kit together is the kit itself, the Incredible Like You stamp set, Lovely Lipstick and Coastal Cabana ink pads, snail adhesive and glue dots.  Lots of glue dots!  It comes together in a snap and the granny apple green glittery pieces really pack a huge punch. 


Here is a video of how easily this kit comes together from the Stampin' Up home office: 

The stamp set stands alone as an incredible addition to your collection. You can see me make some cute projects with it alone on my Facebook Live Wednesday at 9pm.  Join my papermadeprettierclub Facebook Group to see it there. Here's a SNEAK PEEK! 


 Don't delay on ordering this kit. Contact me to schedule your Creating With A Twist party today! It is already been in backorder status once and is arriving back in stock very soon, so get in line for your INCREDIBLE kit today! See all the items below to order

Product of the Week - Humming Along stunner card!




Now y'all know I'm not one to blend with two shades a ton. I love to use my blending markers to just color one layer, but rarely take the time it takes to make gorgeous, blended projects with them. I have friends like Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart and Erica Cerwin who can make magic with them, but I'm more quick and dirty with em. Dang! When I saw this card in the Stampin' Up catalog I knew I had to try it, and I am pleased with the results! I got together with the leaders of  my team and did a catalog case swap. We copied cards straight from the gorgeous Occasions Catalog and this one was a challenge, but a stunner. I used the new Humming Along bundle with the stamps and framelits and NEW Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow blends combo packs. 


The Stampin'  Blends colors I used were Smoky Slate (annual catalog), Mossy Meadow(Occasions Catalog), Balmy Blue (Occasions Catalog) and Pumpkin Pie (annual catalog) blends bundles


Did you see that pockety framelit? that's what I used to make the holes in the watercolor paper. I used a shim to make it cut all the way through. Worth it, don't you think? I did a watercolor wash with Balmy Blue on the watercolor layer. You better bet I also used my magnetic platform to BigShot those suckers since I spent many minutes coloring each one! 


Don't forget the other stunner in the set, the hibiscus. Is that a hibiscus? If not, tell me in the comments here! Does that lower card look familiar? 


Catch me on FB live this week Wednesday at 9pm on "papermadeprettierclub" FB group for a project using this bundle and also a gander at the card were are making with this bundle at Stamp Technique club this weekend.

Rectangle Framelits Cute Crew Valentine's Box


It's a week full of LOVE projects at papermadeprettier, and I'm featuring these boxes first. Introducing.... Stitched Rectangle BOXES! I made these gems for my Pretties Team spoilage gift for our team meeting this weekend. The girls loved them. I saw a video by Angie Juda (Chicnscrach) about how to make these at 10pm the night before, so of course, I had to make 20 of them. haha!  
 Not necessarily my wisest choice, but then again, it WAS worth it.  They were just too cute! I will show how to make these on my Facebook live at 9pm on Wednesday, so be there or be squared (or rectangled). We will also have a prize draw, so set your phone alarms!  


I had gotten these valentine gummy bears from the Target valentines aisle and I'm not lying, good thing there were 45 of them in a sack because they all didn't make it into the boxes. 
See the stitched edge on the box  and tag below? ADORABLE. 


I bet you are wondering where that bear stamp  and cute punch comes from? The Cute Crew Punch Box

Monthly Stampin' Technique Club Recap: We have a few open spots in club, JOIN US!

WE are starting a second year of Stamp Technique club and WOW. What can I say? I hesitated to take on such a new event not less than one year ago and I am soooo grateful that I took the plunge.  There are so many reasons to love it:
1. learning a new technique every month
2. getting to know a regular group of crafty people much more closely
3. happy stamping smiles galore! 

This month we tackled using our embossing mats. I determined that many of us had them bought, but new in package!  WOW! 


Club stampers are Happy Stampers for sure! We have a night club and a day club the first weekend of the month, these are my night stampers. 


How can Dana be so peppy at 9am? haha, my day group is fantastic! 


I just receive a ton of swaps, so shared the three suites we focused on: Butterfly Gala, All My Love and Happiness Blooms.  I just loooooove my swaps! 


We used the Beauty Abounds butterfly framelit and then sponged it to make it pop!


No club is complete without a little spoilage from me :) These cute candy treats were my gift this month.


Did you catch that stitched rectangle on the candy inside? LOVE! 


Our Technique Notebooks are ready for 2019! Each participant receives an emailed set of instructions to fit perfectly in a Memories and more album!  As well as a 3 x 4" swatch to show the technique 


Inside of book: 


My class is FULL of Stampin' Up happy shopper/demonstrators.  They love the new ideas to use in their classes. Stamp club participants make 3 make and takes (one technique make and take, then 2 other simple current Stampin' Up cards). Also, they are invited to my exclusive Stampin' Technique Club Facebook group, Receive PDFs of all of the projects with measurements to use in classes or personal use, print out of technique instructions for technique album, gifts galore, YouTube videos of the projects in case they miss (or need a re-cap!) .
