Autumn-Themed Curvy Keepsakes Boxes

One of the cutest treat boxes returns in the 2019 Holiday Catalog. And it’s miniaturized!!

The Mini Curvy Keepsakes box is a must have especially if you loved the original that we carried a few years back. I dove right in and created four adorable, fall-themed treat boxes with this die set and some coordinating new products. One box is exclusive to the September Stampin’ Anonymous Tutorial (which you can either purchase or get free when you place an order though me this month). The other three (along with one that my friend Susan designed) are what I am sharing with you today!

I demonstrated two of them from start to finish in my Wednesday, September 4th Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook. I then uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products lists below the photos, and then let me know if you have any questions.

The sweet pumpkin box is perfect for Fall in general. Wouldn’t these be cute at each place setting for Thanksgiving?

Measurements for Pumpkin Box…

  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock
    • 5-1/2” x 5-1/2” scrap
  • Garden Green Cardstock
    • Narrow strip for tendril
    • Scrap for die-cutting heart (leaf)

I just HAVE to show off my boys (again). Hahaha! This week was their first back for the 2019-20 school year.

Nicholas on the left is in 8th grade and is taking his first year of Spanish this year. He’s a percussionist in Band IV and will be performing with his Jazz Band this winter in Disney World! This is his 8th year of piano lessons. He is also in Cross Country again and Gymnastics (his first year and they put him in the most advanced class!). He has the busiest schedule in our family but loves the challenge. He even wants to find employment when he turns 14 this October. This kid has ambition. That’s for sure.

Luke on the right is in 7th grade and is loving his classes this year, too. He is in Choir again (hoping this shy kiddo will try out for some solo parts because his voice is heavenly). He is also in Music Composition, Creative Innovations, and Drawing (he is considering being an architect someday). He’s got a intensely creative mind, so I’ll be looking for some after-school opportunities for him. He’s not into competitive team sports, but he is very excited for Tornado Force this winter where he will be able to stay after school to learn about weight lifting and resistance training.

The boys are off for their first day of school 2019! Nick is in 8th and Luke is in 7th already. Time flies. Stamp Your Art Out!

They both will continue with Boy Scouts and are excited that we will be going to Open Gym on Friday nights at Nick’s gymnastics facility. It will be a great way to end the week if we can keep it up.

So far they are enjoying being back at school. Routine is good, and they missed their friends. And… Dad is back to dealing with them needing the bathroom at the same time he does in the morning. But we are working out the kinks.

Life is good. ❤️

A Little Hello from Caribou

School starts the day after Labor Day for our district. So we did our school shopping last week (I took Luke to the stores on the 9th and Nick on the 13th), and now we can focus on enjoying our last days of August. I haven’t blogged in a few days, because I’m up at Caribou Lake (my parents’ place in northern Minnesota) with my boys vacationing. And we are having a great time!

The last half of summer is THE BEST time to be here. The bugs aren’t as intense, the deep lake water is tolerable, and the weather is typically warm and sunny. It’s been heavenly.

My friend, Alissa and her kids, Violet and Nolan were up here with us Wednesday through Friday.

Enjoying Caribou Lake in Northern Minnesota – August 2019. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And when we were up here at the end of July (before Luke’s surgery), the boys brought up a couple friends, Carter and Jamison. We love sharing this great place with our friends. And my mom and dad are so good at making everyone feel so welcome.

Now that Luke is pretty much recovered from his surgery, he’s back to jumping off the dock, paddle boarding, and just being his normal, goofy, 12-year-old self. He makes me giggle.

Grandpa taught Nick (my soon-to-be 14-year-old) how to bring in and “dock” the boat. So Nick is now going out fishing all by himself. He is having a blast trying tricks while he is doing his favorite water sports…tubing and knee boarding. And yesterday he got up on water skis for the first time.

Sweet & Simple Slice of Happiness Notecards

I loved the Slice of Happiness stamp set right away when I saw it. So I got it in my first order that I placed when the 2019-20 Annual Catalog went live in June. But then it sat on my shelf, because I wasn’t quite sure how I would turn the gray images I saw in the catalog to the colorful fruit images I imagined.

Slice of Happiness Stamp Set. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Thankfully these images are “distinkive,” so they have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension with a single impression. And this plays with the ink to also give a depth (or multiple shades) of color when you stamp. I had no problem once I got over my apprehension to just start trying out my inks. It was fun!

These are the cards I made. And I am so pleased that a stamp set that I thought would be complicated to work with turned out to be one of the easiest AND give me such beautiful and artistic results.

I’ve made three coordinating notecards with the Slice of Happiness stamp set. These images are "distinkive," so they have a special texture that gives added depth and dimension with a single impression. Click here to get measurements, directions, and a supply list linked to my online store. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are the measurements & directions if you wish to recreate these cards yourself. And below are more close-up photos.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and punching sentiment
    • 7″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 3-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base (OR just use the Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes)
  • Silver Metallic Thread
    • About 7-8″

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Stamp sentiment on scrap cardstock, then punch it out.
  • Coat the back with SNAIL Adhesive, then add Silver Metallic Thread to the back so that it creates uneven loops that peek out the upper left and lower right. For the pomegranate and grapes cards secure the thread by placing a few Dimensionals on the back side of the label. Set aside.
  • Stamp the fruit image:
    • Stamp the pomegranate in Real Red ink.
    • Stamp the kiwi in Pear Pizzazz ink. Then add dots for seeds with the Basic Black Marker.
    • Use daubers to apply ink to the red rubber of the grapes image. Daub Pear Pizzazz ink on the leaves and stems. Daub Rich Razzleberry ink on the grapes. Remoisten by exhaling on the inked stamp, then stamp the image on the card.
  • Add the sentiment label to the card. Trim off excess if needed as in the layout for the kiwi card.
  • Embellish with Rhinestones or Epoxy Droplets.

Last night was the Boy Scout Court of Honor ceremony for Nick and Luke and his two cousins, Robbie and Jake (not pictured). We are so proud of these kiddos! (Those of you following my blog can see that Luke is healing well from his surgery.)

We were all asked to bring a dessert to share. There were lots of cakes, brownies, bars, and sweet treats. But guess what this gluten-free, food-sensitive mom contributed? A big bowl of fruit! Yep… 🍉🍇🥝 I’m a fruit fan.

So Proud Of You

My son, Luke had his postponed hernia surgery yesterday. (Some of you may recall that he was originally scheduled for July 18 but came down with a fever the night before.) He wasn’t excited to have the procedure done, but he was a brave kiddo the whole way. I was so proud of him!

Proud of my kiddo. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It was laparoscopic surgery, so he just has a few small incisions in the abdomen. And though he will be limited on activities for about a month, the healing should be much easier than it could have been had they done a larger incision.

The surgeon and hospital staff were wonderful at the University of Minnesota. And we were very grateful that they took such good care of him. In fact Dr. Segura even found another small hernia during the operation and repaired that at the same time. Bonus! 😁

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My project today is an easy-to-make card that features the Royal Peacock Stamp Set. I sent this card to a team member. But the message goes so well with how I’m feeling about my son, that it made sense to share it today.

The Noble Peacock Suite is one of my favorites in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog. I love the stunning images in the Royal Peacock stamp set and the beautiful foil paper. Directions, measurements and supplies linked to my online store can be found by clicking here. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements…

  • Pretty Peacock Cardstock
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and punching 2″ Circle
    • 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ (for the inside layer)
  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • 2-1/8″ x 5-1/4″
  • Noble Peacock Designer Paper
    • 1/2″ x 5-1/4″
    • 1-1/8″ x 5-1/4″

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Using Pretty Peacock ink, stamp then punch the sentiment.
  • Stamp the peacock full body image with Bermuda Bay ink on the Whisper White piece. Then stamp the tail feather accent image with Pretty Peacock ink.
  • Using SNAIL Adhesive attach the two strips of designer paper on the right and left side of the card front first. Attach the Whisper White layer. Then adhere the Bermuda Bay layer to the inside of the card.
  • Add the sentiment circle with Dimensionals so it sits halfway on the white and designer paper layers.
  • Finish off with two rhinestones so they line up with the gap between the white and designer paper layers.

Our June and July summer months were pretty intense around here. So this week we are laying low, helping Luke to heal, and hoping to play catch up a bit. Anyone want to help me clean my house? In fact we are hoping for a mellow August. So I’ve decided not to offer product shares for the upcoming Holiday catalog just to reduce my workload for the time being. It was a hard decision, but a necessary one. For those of you looking for 2019 Holiday Catalog product shares, I highly recommend a mother/daughter team from Stampingbae.com, Nancy and Kayla. They are a part of my Stampers With ART Community and have helped me with my product shares in the past.

Several Photos from Our Greek Isles Trip (part 2)

It’s been an interesting week so far since I got back from the Greek Isles Incentive Trip. It was difficult to get my body clock adjusted to Central Time and get back into my normal routine. Then within the last 24 hours we have discovered that my husband has pneumonia and my youngest is also ill…in fact too ill to follow through with his hernia surgery that was scheduled for this morning. I hated putting it off initially because I of my travels, and now I’m sad that it will take place even later as I was hoping he’d have plenty of time to heal before school starts up again. Thank you to all of you who watched my Facebook Live yesterday (which I will share here on my blog on Saturday) and have sent your well wishes and prayers Luke’s way. I’ll keep you posted.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Today I hope to give you LOTS of creative inspiration in one post. I am sharing more photos from the Greek Isles Incentive Trip…photos of the swap boards, several of the swaps I received, and photos of a couple gifts I was given by fellow demonstrators. I’ve watermarked photos of the individual swaps/gifts to give credit to the demonstrator that I got it from. Click here to see the card I used as my swap. In fact you may even be able to spot it in one of the swap board photos below.

Several Photos from Our Greek Isles Trip (part 1)

It’s been a few days since I’ve shared. I forgot how much time unpacking, catching up on mail and email, and adjusting my body clock (sleeping a lot!) takes.

My sister and I returned from our travels late Sunday night. And what an amazing trip it was! After our Rome, Positano, and Capri adventures, we were spoiled by Stampin’ Up! on our adventures during the Royal Caribbean cruise of the Greek Isles – the 2019 Incentive Trip that I earned thanks to so many of you!

We boarded the Jewel of the Seas ship on Sunday, July 7. This was a day of settling in, exploring…

The photos today are mainly about our adventures.) Here I am with Silvia Werner, Melissa Pauli and Jenni Pauli (friends from Germany) having some laughs before “setting sail.”

Below you’ll find photos of all the new goodies (that include several of these new products) I received throughout the cruise. Yes! Stampin’ Up! gives us pillow gifts every day of the trip.

I got together with Melissa Alvarez, Dawn Griffith and Wendy Cranford from my Stampin’ Anonymous team that afternoon on Monday, July 8 to swap and visit by the pool. Renee enjoyed relaxing by another pool during this time.

Of course we had to take photos of it all. Here is that famous blue domed church.

Our tour guide took us up to this high point so we could see a spectacular view of the island. (I’m sporting my new hat that I got for only 15 euro in Capri.)

And then we saw the Akrotiri Ruins – ruins that are still be excavated. It was an amazing day!

On Wednesday, July 10 we were in port at Mykonos. Our group of six (we were with Lynn Feldkamp, Shawn Perez, Carol Valentine and her sister, Joyce) had a relaxing day together. Our guide, Angelos from Private Angel Tours took us around the island so we could see the beauty and learn about some of the history.

We spent almost 3 hours of our time relaxing on Super Paradise Beach and swimming in the crystal clear (and super blue!) waters of the Mediterranean.

And we ended our tour with a late seafood lunch by another beach.

On Thursday, July 11 we were exploring again. This time we were in port in Athens with a much larger group. And our tour guide took us to see the Acropolis where saw the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Theatre of Dionysus, the Temple of Athena Nike, and more. It was amazing!

AND it was wall-to-wall people there. Thank goodness the weather was a bit cooler this day and we were one of the first groups to get in an out before it got too crazy.

We also stopped at the stadium where the first modern Olympics was held in1896 (1503 years after the original games ended in Olympia). And we stopped at the Parliament building where we watched the changing of the guards.

On Friday, July 12 our ship was in port at Katakolon. Here our tour took us to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic games held 776 BC – 393 AD. We walked around the site, raced each other on the actual stadium grounds, and saw the amazing artifacts in the museum.

We did a little shopping in the port before getting back on the ship. Renee and I bought some fun purses. And I indulged myself with one more gelato at Maniera Gelateria. And oh my word!… The dark chocolate/ginger/orange flavor was THE best!

That was the last of our stops.
We didn’t want to get back on the ship and lingered on the dock as long as we could.

Again, I’ll share more photos of all the friends (old and new) in another blog post soon, because that is a HUGE part of the fun – sharing these adventures with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and staff. But I had to slip in the rest of these as they recap our last part of the cruise.

Every evening we dined with these marvelous people: Tracy and Robert Penn from Victoria, Australia, Barb and Gary Tripps from British Columbia, Canada and Zahra and Rahim Premji from Ontario, Canada. We took this photo on Friday night after our last day in port.

Tracy and Zahra talked us into joining them for dancing after dinner that night. What a blast that was!

The ship was at sea all day on Saturday, July 13th. So I made sure I had taken all my photos of swaps and new products (which I will also share with you soon!) and gathered up all the unique candies (containers are filled to the top every day!) to take home to my boys. I also introduced Renee to Shelli Gardner, the co-founder of Stampin’ Up! and her husband Sterling.

Later that evening we enjoyed visiting and saying our good-byes at the pool-side Stampin’ Up! farewell party.

We were sad to go because we had such a fabulous time. But we definitely missed our families and couldn’t wait to see them.

Here are photos of all the items Stampin’ Up! gave me – pillow gifts, all attendee give-aways, and prizes. Most of the products are new from the 2019 Holiday Catalog which will debut September 4!

I will forever cherish this special time I had with my sister. It was an amazing adventure. Renee and I truly had the time of our lives.
