Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp set

This new set is so stinkin' cute!

I will be finalizing an order on Friday, so let me know if you want me to add your order to it.  This set is $13.95, and your shipping will only be $1.40 if I add it in with my order.  (If you ordered it alone, the shipping & handling would be $6.95)  So, for $16.27 (shipping and tax included) you can get this great little set in your hot little hands!  Local folks can pick it up from me, and I can send it to long-distance customers.  Contact me for more information.

Each person ordering this set will also receive a cute, hand-stamped card using this set to give you some inspiration.  So, don't delay -- I have a feeling this set will sell out like others have done in the past.

Happy Stamping,

RemARKable Pinworthy Blog Tour: "Capture The Moment"

Hello, and welcome to our monthly blog tour!  Sit back, relax, and enjoy seeing all of the great ideas members of the RemARKable Stampers team have for you.

May is National Scrapbooking Month, so we decided to "Capture The Moment" for this month's tour.  I am the first to admit that I am "scrapbook-challenged."  I have lots of photos waiting to be lovingly scrapped, and I just never seem to get around to it.  It always seemed too complicated and time-consuming, and I was intimidated by that HUGE 12 x 12" page!

Well, this is exactly why Becky Higgins created Project Life!  And, I am so excited that Stampin' Up! is the only direct sales company to offer Project Life products.  I used some of these new products to create my first project:

We went to the beach last week, and I actually scrapped the photos already!  That is a rare event for me...I have boxes and boxes of photos that I have not preserved.  I think Project Life will help me work my way through those boxes and actually have completed albums!

I added the date with the new Day to Day stamp set.  The cute little camera is from the Point & Click stamp set.

I love the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits Dies and the Washi Tape that comes in the Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack.

I made my own Journaling Card with Whisper White card stock, the Project Life Corner Punch, the Point & Click stamp set, and the Project Life Journaling pens.

Here is a second page I did this week (Okay -- actually today!  Last-minute is my middle name!):

It is SO easy to create pages!  I cannot believe it -- I just received these products on Monday, and I have completed 2 pages.

The 3x4" card is perfect for writing about your photos.

I added the arrow sticker and stamped the word Spring in StazOn black ink to embellish this panel. Simply slide your photos and cards into the pockets and you are done!

It is so easy to "Capture The Moment" with the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection and the Variety Pack 12x12" Project Life Photo Pocket Pages.  Simply decide which cards and which photos you want to slip into the pockets, add some journaling, and "just-like-that" you are finished a page!

You can also step-it-up, if you'd like.  Simply add some stamped images, ribbon, washi tape, fancy clips, buttons, etc. and you have a unique creation capturing your memories.

Here are the supplies I used for these pages:

All of these items are in the brand new 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Plus, the new catalog has even more Project Life by Stampin' Up! goodies!  Yippee!

Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bolinger has in store for us this month.  Just click on this link to go to her blog:

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Today is National Scrapbooking Day, and I hope you spent the day creating some pages or taking photos of fun events that you will scrapbook soon!  I am expecting my shipment of new Project Life by Stampin' Up! products early next week, and I cannot wait to play!

I have been at the beach with my family, and I have LOTS of photos to scrap.  My new Project Life products will make it quick and easy to preserve these memories.  In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

I'll be the first to admit, I am usually intimidated by the 12 x 12" format -- it is just SO much room to fill compared to a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" greeting card size.  That's what I love about Project Life -- the page protectors have pockets you fill with either photos or cards, and all of the cards and accessories are created with coordination in mind.  Just gather your photos and your Project Life kits and you can preserve your memories quickly and easily!

Here are the Project Life goodies I will be using later this week:

Project Life Photo Pocket Pages Variety Pack
Catalog #135294  $6.95
12 pages, 2 each of 6 designs
Acid and Lignin Free

Project Life Everyday Adventure Card Collection

4 3” x 4” specialty laser-cut cards
4 Alphabet/number cardstock sticker sheets
4 element cardstock sticker sheets

Happy Stamping,

A Sneak Peek.....

I promised a little sneak peek of a new stamp set earlier this week, so here is the first card I made with my new Work Of Art stamp set that I received at the 2014 Catalog Premiere:

I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this new set!  I used Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Daffodil Delight ink for the background.  I stamped the images onto our Watercolor Paper, then blended the colors with an AquaPainter.  Once it dried, I stamped the sentiment with Black StazOn ink, then stamped the heart with VersaMark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.

A little Metallic Baker's Twine wrapped around and tied in a bow adds a little sparkle, and I layered the Watercolor Paper onto Daffodil Delight, then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere to the front of the Crisp Cantaloupe card.  A quick and easy card!

Happy Stamping,
