Hi Stampers,

I have a special and a tutorial to share with you.


How about FREE SHIPPING on all orders of $30 or more!!
Right now Stampin' Up! has the $10.95 Designer Series Paper on sale for 
add my FREE SHIPPING for more savings!!!

Special runs through July 31st. Email your orders to me by 9:00pm PST to receive your 
All orders must be paid by 10:30pm PST through PayPal, if on the 31st. If you would like to pay by check, it must arrive by the 31st.
Only US orders qualify.

Now for the tutorial.....

I thought I would show how to make custom glimmer paper. One of the new glimmer paper is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. 
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Stunning, no-mess way to add glitter accents—glitter won’t brush off this cover-weight paper! Use with select dies. 2 sheets: ea. 12" x 12".
Through this picture, you can't see all the sparkles. It's very pretty just on it's own, but boy the colors you can make with it is awesome!

Here's the card we made in club this month....stamp set is In this Together 
CLEAR-MOUNT 133869 $16.95
wood-mount133866 $22.95

The Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper has been turned into Blackberry Bliss Glimmer Paper! Here's how to make that change....oh, it's a good idea to wear latex gloves for this project or wash a sink of dishes after making the paper to remove all the ink from your fingers and hands!!!!

1. Drop 2 small drops of the color refill of your choice into the Stampin' Spritzer. Add rubbing alcohol to fill the spritzer. 

2. Set your paper into a card board box and begin to spray the entire sheet. It may take 2-3 refills of the spritzer to cover the entire sheet. It depends on how dark you want the color to be.

 3. Your paper will look like this once you are done spraying. There may be darkened edges that will need to be trimmed away.

4. Trim your paper to desired size for your projects. You're done!

This is very easy to do. Like I said previously, it can be messy, but it's so much fun to see the transformation. Go give it a try!!

Mom's Birthday Card

Hi Stampers!!

My mom recently had a birthday. This is the card I made for her. It was a really fun card to make using a combination of Stampin' Up! and non-Stampin' Up! stamps. I'm not sure of the name of the style of this card. It's more of a standup accordion. And here is a pic of my beautiful mom, the birthday girl!
