Decor’ Elements

Well you probably have heard all the fuss over Stampin’ Up’s new product line, drum roll please, Decor’ Elements. These are self-adhesive vinyl elements that you can put on your walls, mirrors, glass and I’m sure more. They will be available to our customers on July 1st and we can pre-order now. I just can’t decide which ones I need.  I’m leaning on the “Create” words and definition.  SU is offering 100 items now with more to come soon. Oh, and they come in 3 colors, white, brown and kraft. Wait till you see them, they are stunning. You will see, phrases, numbers, letters, flowers, flourishes and more. They are reasonable priced and we will have stamp sets to coordinate with some of the vinyl elements. I love when everything coordinates, takes the guess work out of what will work together and what won’t. So stay tuned as we learn more about this new product line.

First Stamp Set I Purchased

This was the first Stampin’ Up! stamp set I ever purchased. My Sister was just starting with SU and while she was visiting I had a party. I’m not sure how old this set is, but I’m thinking at least 8 years. Why do I bring this up you say? Well, I am selling my retired sets on E-Bay and I just sold this one today. So, while I haven’t used, or thought about this set in a very long time, tomorrow it will be in the mail to it’s new owner.

My Sister and  family will be here on Friday and I have a box of cards and 3-D items she made for me before I started with SU, and it will be fun to go through the box and see how far we have come. I saved everything she ever sent me. So I might post some of the things she made.  I haven’t looked in that box in probably 3 or 4 years.

Bali Breeze Envelope Card

I made this cute Envelope (gift card) card holder today with my stampin’ buddy Lynne. Actually she is doing a swap for convention where they can use any papers or accessories even if they are going to be retiring. Inside are 2 envelopes that are cut down to 4″ (you seal then cut) so you can put in 2 gift cards or whatever you want. You can find a video on Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts on how to make this card.
