Apron  of Love Banner
As a SU demonstrator, I receive a Quarterly Stampin' Success Magazine with a gazillion ideas, well not a gazillion, but a lot of ideas for cards, projects, and techniques.  This cute banner is just one of the samples in the 2018 First Quarter magazine. 
I used the Large Letter Framelits Dies, the Apron of Love bundle, and the Coffee Break DSP to create my banner.  
The Apron of Love bundle has multiple uses that will be appreciated for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, birthdays, bridal showers, or just to show how much you care about someone.  And some of the coordinating Apron Builder Framelits dies feature multiple images on the same piece of metal; the benefit is you are less likely to lose them! (Ask me what a benefit that is!)
SU is carrying this stamp set, and framelits to the 2018-19 Catalog, just not as a bundle price.  So, if you would like to save 10%, just click Right Here to place your order in my on-line store before May 31, 2018. 
If you make a purchase after clicking on my link, I receive a small commission as your demonstrator with no extra cost to you.  I truly appreciate your support when shopping with me.  Please do not hesitate to ask me a question, as I am here to help you.
Recipe:
  • Cut out the aprons with the Apron Builder Dies and the Coffee Break DSP. (DSP is available until May 31, 2018, or while supplies last.) 
  • Cut out the letters with Early Espresso cardstock and the Large Letter Framelits Dies.  
  • Cut out the utensils, mittens, and any other little items you would like, and adhere them to the aprons with Multipurpose Tombow Liquid glue, snail adhesive, and/or dimensionals.
  • Punch holes on the sides of the aprons with a 1/4" hand-held punch, and weave linen thread through the holes.  I did not cut my thread until I was completely finished with my weaving.  Didn't want to cut myself short. ✀
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

More Truly Tailored, 
CASEd from the catty
 

If you look on page 44 of the Occasions Mini from Stampin' Up! you will see similar cards, just like the two above.  That's because I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything), them.  So easy, peasy. 
I think this bundle is absolutely wonderful, and I am excited to create more "masterpieces" with it. Also, SU is carrying this stamp set and punch to the 2018-19 Catalog, just not as a bundle price.  So, if you would like to save 10%, just click Right Here to place your order in my on-line store before May 31, 2018.

Recipe:
  • The bases are 8 1/2 x 5 1/2  pieces of Night of Navy, or Tranquil Tide scored at 4 1/4. 
  • The Tranquil Tide or Crumb Cake layers are 5 1/4 x 4.
  • The True Gentleman DSP is 5 x 3 3/4.
  • The Crumb Cake banner is 2 1/2 x 3 3/4, and the True Gentleman DSP under it is 2 x 4 1/8.  I added a piece of the Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon between the DSP and the Crumb Cake Banner.  Gorgeous ribbon, great for a masculine card.  Just sayin'.😊
  • The Chocolate Chip banner is 2 1/4 x 3 5/8, and the flag is cut with my Paper Snips, and the DSP is 2 x 3 1/2 and the flag is cut with the Triple Banner Punch. (bottom card) 
  • The tag is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla scrap with Night of Navy ink, and cut out with my fantastic Paper Snips by SU.  The background tag is punched with the Tailored Tag Punch and Night of Navy cardstock.
  • I stamped a fox (from the stamp set Foxy Friends) on the inside of the top card with Early Espresso ink.
  • Don't forget to decorate your envelope.
  • All done!!!

The Stampin' Up!

2018 Color Revamp


Stampin’ Up! is updating their core color collections as well as adding 5 new In Colors starting June 1, 2018.  Plus, there’s a new stamp pad design that makes a great stamp pad even GREATER!  Here’s everything you’ll want to know!

THE DETAILS

There are still four color collections, each with ten colors. There is also a new color group called Basics.
In order to keep the color collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White have been moved out of the Neutrals collection. Stampin’ Up! also moved a few colors (Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Night of Navy) into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colorful!
Some additional colors have changed collections as well—you’ll notice this as you look through the new collections below. You can refer to the old and new color charts in the 2018-2019 catalog when it’s released on June 1, 2018

NEW CLASSIC STAMPIN’ PADS

In addition to new colors, Stampin’ Up! redesigned their ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and they improved the formula of the ink, as well! 
Why the change to the case?
The case’s manufacturing mold was about to expire. Stampin’ Up! can only use a mold a limited number of times before they need to replace it, so they had to decide if they wanted to order more of the same molds or try to improve the design.   They chose to improve it!  Smart!
Stampin’ Up! wanted to align the updated case with the color revamp and improvements to the ink. In addition, they chose to time these changes with Stampin’ Up!’s rebranding and packaging updates. This way, when you invest in the new colors, you are also getting the new and improved ink pads at the same time! 
What’s better about the case?
  • Less confusing to open. 
  • Tighter fit between the lid and the base. 
  • Stackable. 
  • Improved labels and stickers.
How is the ink different?
  • Reduced ink bubbles.
  • Smoother coating of ink on the stamp.
  • Improved ink coverage. 
  • You can re-ink the new ink pads with old re-inkers, you just won’t get the benefit of the defoamer that’s been added to the new re-inkers. The only exception to this is, you don’t want to use the Archival Basic Gray Re-inker on the new pads because it will ruin it.
