Batter up!

Even though we are in the midst of hockey play-offs here in Ontario, I must say I enjoyed playing with the baseball themed May Paper Pumpkin kit. It was great fun to create cards for the baseball fans in my life, boys & girls, moms or dads.

The kit came with card bases to create nine cards but by adding some white & coloured cardstock & cutting the card bases in half, we went to town creating some fun alternatives.

This first card is based on a design by Leena Girsa, a fellow Canadian demonstrator. The baseball card front mimics a vintage baseball trading card then opens up to showcase a fun fold full of baseball images What fun!


The stamp set includes a cute cap that was stamped, then fussy-cut to decorate the pin-striped mat.

Next up - a card for the Boy-Moms in the family. They're both baseball players/fans so the Polished Pink was perfect for these sporty gals.

The die-cuts in the kit are perfect for a scrapbook page so with some pics on hand of one of my all-star g'sons.

Here are a couple more alternatives for inspiration.

Here's one last card, turning the sunburst red & white card base into a celebration for Canada Day!

Happy New (Catalogue) Year!

It's finally here - the Stampin' Up Annual 2021-22 Catalogue. And it's a beauty! 

As a Demonstrator I have had the opportunity to pre-order & test drive some of the new products & oh, what fun I've had. There are new colours, new bundles & tons of inspiration for creating masterpieces.

The new In-Colours are quite lovely - here they are in all their glory.

It always takes me a bit to commit the new names to memory but here goes, clockwise from top left: Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent, Evening Evergreen & Pale Papaya. There are wonderful coordinating products in these colours including ribbon, embellishments, cardstock & DSP. These colours will be around for two years so you'll have lots of time to collect & enjoy them. Be sure to check them out in your catty. 

And speaking of which - be sure to contact me if you would like a copy of the catalogue. I have them available to mail or pick up if you are local. In the meantime you can download & enjoy the digital version.
