I do love what I do! And I would love to have you join me and share what we love! You can have fun, save some money, and make a difference! If you are thinking about the “A Little More, Please Bundle”, you should really consider signing up as a demonstrator and get the bundle plus a whole lot more for LESS than what you would pay for the bundle (when you add the cost for shipping)! Let’s do the math… You can order $125 in product (which can be items from the upcoming catalog or current catalogs) and pay just $99 and SHIPPING IS FREE!  You could order the bundle for $91.50 and get the other 4 In Color Stampin’ Pads and it would cost you just $99 plus tax.  You would save over $38 on this order alone! Plus you would get a Free Paper Pumpkin in your kit (another $20 value), the new catalogs, and more! You will also be able to order any other products you want from the new catalog at a discount until at least the end of October! (Which means you would get to see and purchase items from the Holiday catalog early and at a discount too!) There is no obligation to sell or buy anything else if you don’t want to.  However, anything else you do buy between now and the end of October you would save at least 20%!  That’s just one scenario. You could choose to order other items from the new catalog in your demonstrator order and get them before the catalog is even released in June. It’s completely customized! You get to choose what you want! I’d be happy to help you with your order or answer any questions.  Give me a call or send me an email and we can arrange a time to chat! Now is a great time to join…let’s face it, you are going to want to buy some of the new products anyway, why not get what you want at a discount!  You will enjoy the discount but I believe you will love the community of people even more when you join this amazing group with me. I cherish the friendships I have made through stamping.  We are from all over the US and we chat and encourage each other in ways beyond stamping! I believe if you give it a try you won’t regret it! It’s really one of the easiest and best decisions I’ve made!
I was able to preorder the Share What You Love Suite in April. (One of my favorite perks of being a demonstrator!) Previously I shared two cards that I made using the products in the bundle. *Click on the image to see the original post.

Can you guess which bundle I bought? LOL  I had to have the DSP!!! The handpainted designs have a translucent, pearlized finish and it is just gorgeous!
There’s one more bundle from the upcoming catalog you can order starting tomorrow…the new In Color Collection!
In Color Classic Ink Bundle

You save 10% when you order the In Color Collection as a bundle!  In addition, if you order this collection from my online store in May, I will send you some of the new In Color cardstock.  You will get 10 card bases (2 of each color) for FREE as my thanks to you! *The cardstock will be shipped directly from me and will not be included in your Stampin’ Up! order. Be the first to get your hands on the new In Color stampin’ pads and free cardstock so you can start creating with these bright and beautiful colors!

I know this is a long post today and I have one last bit of information for you. I am currently accepting orders for round two of my NEW Color Swatch books. (Click HERE to see the original post with information how to order.)  I sold out of the ones from my preorder that could be shipped out immediately.  *If you sent me an email and did not get an invoice yet that means you are on the list for round two.  The first batch will be mailed out May 1st.  I hope to have round two completed by the end of the May! Invoices for round two will be sent out later this week.

Thanks for stopping by. Click below to view the early release flyer and see which bundle is the one for you.

Have a great day!

April Paper Pumpkin…You Are My Anchor

I love the beach and all things nautical so you can see why this month’s Paper Pumpkin is one of my all time favorites! Check out this video showcasing this month’s kit!

Most of the time I use the contents of the kits and make my own cards but this month I could have easily followed the directions and made them exactly as shown in the kit and been thrilled with the result. The kit includes supplies for 20 cards and 4 boxes! I love the 3 x 3 note cards and gift boxes and I thought about keeping a set for me and giving the other 3 sets as gifts. The 3 x 3 cards are great for gift enclosures and/or notes to tuck in lunchboxes and briefcases; however, I decided to play around and turn some of them in to cards I could send in the mail.  I love the stamps and the dies included in this kit! I recommend Paper Pumpkin subscribers purchase the note cards & envelopes so they can continue to use the stamps sets and ink included in their kits to make more cards. They are a great deal for 20 cards and envelopes! Each month I send my Paper Pumpkin subscribers exclusive alternative projects ideas using the products in their kits.   I know there are others like me that may not want to make multiples of the same card. I like to change it up a little. Here is an adorable matchbook treat holder I made using just the supplies in the kit. Perfect for a lifesaver candy!

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

These are not only fun, they are quick & easy to make!

I cut 1″ off the 3 x 3 note card so it measured 2 x 6.  Then I turned and cut 3/8″ off one end so it measured 2 x 5 5/8. I lined it up on the score board so the 3″ score lined up at the 3″ mark and then I scored it at 1/2 and 3 1/4.

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin You Are My Anchor Matchbook Treat Holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Fold the score lines and staple an individually wrapped lifesaver under the 1/2″ flap. Stamp the sentiment above in Island Indigo Ink and tuck in the top flap.  I followed the directions in the kit to decorate and adhere the life preserver using glue dots, twine, and mini stampin’ dimensionals. Adhere to the front and that’s all there is to it!

These little treats are great to have on hand to give out as you go through the drive thru to pick up your morning coffee or give to friends, hairdressers, “helpers” throughout the day, etc.

If you are new to Paper Pumpkin, you can get your first two months at half price!  That’s a great deal! You need to subscribe on or before May 10th to take advantage of this promotion. Click HERE to join. (*Click on Monthly Subscription/ Subscribe and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418.)

T is for Tutti-Frutti Treats

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today it is all about family, friends, and fruit with the Tutti -frutti Suite.

Growing up I would go blueberry picking with my dad and 5 siblings.  My dad would tie buckets around our waste so both hands were free for faster picking! My mom would  bake homemade pie and all kinds of blueberry treats. YUM! I’m not much of a pie baker but I do enjoy making homemade breads and jam.  Strawberry season will be here before you know it and I love to make strawberry jam! The Tutti-Frutti suite makes it quick & easy to create tags and gift enclosures to go with homemade goodies (or store bought favorites)!

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This little gift card is for Sister Corda’s roommate.  After Sister Corda passed away, I have been spending Monday evenings with her roommate.  We chat, have dinner together, and watch a few episodes of Longmire on Netflix. Sister Al loves blueberry jam and enjoys some with her bagel every morning.  I bought some of my favorite Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam to give to her.

Stampin Up Tutti-frutti hello friend 3 x 3 note card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love to make note cards to go with gifts. To make this simple note card start with a 3 x 6 piece of cardstock and score it at 3″.  I added a layer of Night of Navy cardstock that is a 2 3/4″ square. Then I added a piece of  2 x 2 5/8  DSP and some gingham ribbon. The sentiment is from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set, cut out with the new 1 1/8 Scallop Circle Punch, and layered on a 1 1/4 punched Night of Navy circle. I popped the sentiment up with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  Quick & easy!

Here’s a quick 1 minute video showing how to make another quick & easy 3 x 3 card using products from the Tutti-frutti Suite!

I will be heading to Hartford, Connecticut in two weeks for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention. I can’t wait to get together with “my people”!  Six of us rented a historic home just outside of Hartford so we could be together for a little extended vacation.  We are planning to stamp, shop, sightsee, and I’m sure chat until the wee hours of the morning.  It is always so much fun when we get together! I made these little gifts using the Tutti-frutti Designer Series Paper for my “Stampin’ Sisters”.

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I got this idea from Sam Donald (Pootles.co.uk).  I changed mine up a bit and used coordinating DSP rather than washi tape. I bought several different fruit pens and had so much fun making these that I just couldn’t stop!  I wanted to try different color combinations and ribbons. I ordered the fruit pens from Amazon.  I love the way they coordinate with our DSP! I love the pens with the bauble fruit charms (above) but I also love the way the DSP and ribbon pictured below can serve double duty as a  bookmark. Two gifts in one!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love how they turned out! For the first set of pens (with the charms) I used a smidge smaller than 2 x 8 cardstock, 1 3/4 x 6 DSP  in the center, and (2) 1 3/4 x 3/4 strips on the top and bottom. These fit in Stampin’ Up!’s  2 x 8 Cellophane Bags.  You get 50 sturdy bags for just $3.00!

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I used a sightly smaller piece of cardstock for the other pens (a smidge less than 2 x 7) and cut 3/4″ off the top of the cellophane bags.  The DSP measures the same. I used the 1/4″ hole punch to punch an opening for the ribbon. I fussy cut the fruit from the DSP.  (You could stamp and punch fruit using the Fruit Basket stamp set and Itty Bitty Punch Pack.) I used glue dots to adhere the fruit pieces to the cellophane bags.

Stampin Up Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper bookmark & gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Would you like to receive one of these Tutti-Frutti pens? I am sending one to everyone who places an online order of $50 or more with me in March.  It’s my “party favor” and will be included in my birthday party thank you kit for ordering this month! I appreciate each and every order and love sending little thank you gifts and card kits to show my appreciation. I will also be giving one away to a random winner on my blog.  Leave a comment sharing something you enjoy doing with friends or family members and you could be the lucky winner.

Yesterday I showcased all 7 suites from the Occasions catalog and asked my readers to share which one was their favorite suite.  If you missed that post you can view it HERE. From the comments it looks like Petal Passion is the most popular for it’s versatility and great sentiments!  I enjoyed reading all the wonderful comments about the other suites as well.  Like me, some of you liked several and have a hard time choosing a favorite!

I have been making so many projects lately using the products in the Tutti-Frutti Suite! You can view previous projects I have shared HERE or HERE.

I is for Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series showcases products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m sharing a bundle from the Occasions catalog that includes the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I love punches and this adorable punch pack coordinates with the Fruit Basket Stamp Set. Here’s a look at the bundle.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle - For inspirational ideas and ordering visit my blog, www.juststampin.com -Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I love fresh fruit!  We have several orchards nearby where you can pick your own apples in the fall as well as blueberries and strawberries in the spring. We also have a Peach Festival and other “fruit” events in the area so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this bundle. I found some smoothie mixes at the grocery store the other day and picked up a few for my my family and to give as little gifts. I made some fun “envelope cards” to hold the smoothie mixes.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle card ideas to hold treats - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

It’s so easy to make any size envelope using the Envelope Punch Board!  All the directions are right on the board (for 66 different sizes) so you never have to worry about what size paper you need or where to punch and score. I started by measuring my smoothie mix package which measured 4 1/2 x 6.  I checked the EPB (Envelope Punch Board) to see what size paper I needed (8 1/2 x 8 1/2) and where to start to punch & score (3 3/4).

After I punched and scored all sides I was ready to embellish. The Tutti-frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper was perfect to go with my fruit smoothies. It is so easy to pick my cardstock colors from the DSP. I adhered my DSP to a layer of cardstock then popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals on the front of the envelope card. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits for the sentiment layers. I stamped the sentiment close to the bottom to leave room for my ribbon in the middle.  I stamped the fruit twice, once in each color, then punched them out with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punches. I wanted the add the leaf layer on top with a Glue Dot to give it a little dimension. I wrapped the ribbon around the envelope and tied a bow.  The ribbon keeps the envelope closed and just slides off to open. I added a stamped layer on the inside which is a hidden surprise under the smoothie mix.

This is a fun card to make even if you don’t have a drink mix to add.  I stamped and cut the sentiment “treat yourself” from the Picture Perfect Birthday set and attached that to the drink mix for an added touch.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board and Fruit Basket Bundle birthday card idea with a special treat - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

My son has a birthday soon and he loves fresh pineapples. The smoothie mix calls for fresh fruit, water, and ice so I thought I would include a pineapple to go with it.  The tag was attached to the pineapple so rather than cut it off I made a tag to coordinate and adhered it on top.

I love making little gifts like this! The pineapple and card would be a nice welcome gift for a new neighbor or even a treat for Easter. Simply change the sentiment and you are good to go for any occasion.

My daughter will be home for spring break soon and she loves strawberry smoothies! This little treat will be waiting for her.

The strawberries were fun to stamp and punch. I used both Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink for the stems. I love this gingham ribbon.  It is easy to work with and really makes the card pop! Here’a a photo showing the back of the envelope card.  You can see how the ribbon keeps the envelope closed.

This sentiment is perfect for my daughter! This set would also make a great hostess gift, thank you, or just a special treat for a friend or coworker. Who wouldn’t enjoy fresh strawberries and a handmade card?!

I have one more treat to share with you today.  My sister recently moved to Virginia and she is going to visit this weekend.  My family refers to our home as the local Bed & Breakfast. (My husband is a great cook!) I always like to leave little pillow gifts for overnight guests so while I was punching strawberries I made this quick Ghirardelli treat holder for my sister.

Stampin Up Fruit Basket Bundle candy treat holder idea made with the Envelope Punch Board - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

You can whip this treat holder in no time at all!  Start with a piece of 4 x 4 designer series paper. Use the Envelope Punch Board to punch and score at 2 inches on each side. Put your candy inside and tie close with ribbon and twine.  I used my circle punches to punch the layers for the sentiment and attached it to the ribbon with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Quick & easy!

I hope you like today’s projects. For more Envelope Punch Board ideas and a video click HERE.  Check out this video showcasing the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the Fruit Basket Bundle I used in today’s projects.

So which do you prefer: Ghirardelli chocolate, strawberry smoothie, or pineapple smoothie? I would love to hear from you! FYI…I prefer milk chocolate to dark and would rather eat fresh fruit rather than put it in a drink.
