How About Some Cucumber Crush?

I'm normally not a green person, but I have to say that Cucumber Crush, a new 2015-2017 Stampin' Up! In Color, really has me going!  I look at it and see bright summer green, as well as Christmas green.  So yesterday, I had a chance to use it with the Sheltering Tree stamp set and totally loved the end result!  


Hard to believe I only used two ink pads for this card - Cucumber Crush and Chocolate Chip.  You notice the two tone on the tree and ground?  I stamped the leaf image on the tree, then turned it slightly and stamped it again without reinking it.  This technique is called "stamping off".  I also did the same technique for the ground.  Really adds so much depth and dimension to the image.



Isn't that bike adorable!  All of the images used on this card were from the Sheltering Tree stamp set. Talk about versatility!!  What else did I use?  Well . . .

Yup - I'm really enjoying this Cucumber Crush.  What's next - Christmas!!  Stay tuned!

Spring Cleaning - Stampin' Up! Framelits

I've been in one of these weird purging and organizing moods in the past few weeks.  Needless to say, when I get like this, I need to take advantage and get things done because I know this feeling will end . . . . always does! 

Today I want to share with you what I've done with my Stampin' Up! framelits and thinlets.  If you've been in my Stampin' Studio, you'll seen this before, but I took it one step further!

First, I separated my framelits into three categories - current, mini catalogs and retired.   In the past, I've had them all grouped together so sorting them helps me keep up with what is current - and what is not current (an important fact for a demonstrator!)   I used some retired 8" x 8" Stampin' Up! photo albums that I had on hand.  In this organizing phase, I'm really trying to use things I have on hand, not going out and purchasing more stuff to organize!


Now, this is how I keep each set of framelits:




I put one set of framelits into each page protector.  The framelits themselves are placed on a magnet sheet that you can get at Home Depot or Lowe's.  They are actually covers for air conditioning and heating vents.  Here is a picture of the packaging:


They do have a white backing, but it does not peel off - trust me on this one!! They work great and are reasonably priced! I cut them down to 7" x 7" and mount on a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 8-1/4" x 8-1/4" using Tombow Multi-Adhesive Glue. 

I was going to do a list for each binder; however, since the lists will change when the new catalog comes out and other catalogs are published, I think it will be easier just to keep them in alphabetical order in each binder and skip the list part.  As with any organizing project though, it is subject to change and might be something I do in the future.

If you have any questions, just let me know!  

Happy Stamping,
Phyllis
