Celebrating 7 Years & Starting Something New!

Happy 4th of July! Seven years ago today (July 4, 2016) I stepped out of my comfort zone and started this blog. I couldn’t have done it without the help and support from my family! My wonderful daughter set up my blog and encouraged me to share!

Today I am stepping put of my comfort zone again and I need your help! I started a facebook business page. Many people have asked about purchasing my seashell crafts. I plan to post these items on my facebook page and would love for you to help spread the word. Please like my page and share with your facebook friends and family. I love to create trinket dishes, candles, wine stoppers, napkin rings, angels, and more with shells! These make great gifts for friends, family, hostess, etc. I have posted some of these on my blog HERE, HERE, and HERE. I have given many as gifts and use them all over my house for decor and more.

Here’s the link to my facebook  business page: https://www.facebook.com/juststampin

I have enjoyed creating and sharing my cards & 3D projects with you on my blog the past 7 years. I always appreciate when others take the time to comment. I read each and every one! I had 9 comments (counting 2 from my family LOL) on my first blog post. (You can Click HERE to view my first post.) I’d love to send a little something to the people who commented  and inspired me to keep creating and sharing! So….Rosemarie, Linda Rizzo, Elisha, Ellen, Nancy Farrell, and Rosanne….email me (j.stark@goeaston.net) your address and I will pop a little something in the mail to you.  FYI…I know Nancy and Rosanne are still following me as they have become close friends over the past 7 years! Rosanne joined my team and she is so talented!!! You can check out her blog at heartfeltstamping.com. Here’s a fun project she created which is quick & easy for the 4th of July.

March 2021 Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go & Second Chance Offer!

I have another fun kit for you this month! Because it is my birthday month you can be sure to find some birthday card ideas enclosed in this month’s kit.  As always my kits are intended to be versatile so you can use different stamps sets that you already have. (Of course I am not opposed to you purchasing some from me!! LOL)  I don’t showcase the contents of my kits in advance. If you like the style of cards and projects I showcase on my blog, you’ll be receiving the same style in my kits. (*One card is always a fun fold.) I can’t wait for you to see this month’s kit!!! The cards are perfect for birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, thank you, etc.! So versatile! Here’s the details if you are interested in my monthly kit:

Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet TO GO cost:  $20 (includes shipping and handling)
*SOLD OUT  3/16/21

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t need a specific stamp set. And you don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit and shipped to you!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

Here’s one of the cards and 3D project from last month’s kit.

*Second Chance Offer

I was able to order more of the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper before it retired. If you would like to purchase one or more cards & coordinating basket (with tutorial), email me with “Flower & Field Set” in the subject line. The cost is $8 per set (includes shipping). Follow the directions above to send payment via paypal. *These are available to ship immediately. DSP and cardstock colors vary. The matching card & basket would be great for Easter, Mother’s Day, birthday, hostess gift, etc. You can substitute a different word die, add a stamped sentiment, or choose to omit the sentiment on the front and just stamp or add a handwritten note inside. The choice is up to you!

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline.

Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!

Berry Delightful Strawberry Treats for the Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I really like making little treats and gifts for my friends and family! Delivering treats has been a much needed “get out of the house activity”. I look forward  to driving around town and leaving little surprises in mailboxes. I made two different versions of today’s project. One stands upright and the other folds over to reveal the surprise treat when opened. This little treat can be given any time of year or you can make it to give out for Valentine’s Day… just change the sentiments.

One of my favorite treats is chocolate covered strawberries. (Oh yum!) While this isn’t the real thing, it’s a fun alternative with a much longer shelf life. Both versions have a slide out box which holds 3 chocolate hearts/strawberries.

I made the stand alone version first then decided to tweak it so it would fold over and open like a card. All inclusive! You can add a message on back of the stand up version if you want. Here’s a look at each project.

This version is just 1/4″ shorter and has an extra score line.

I used the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the lovely Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This exclusive bundle is FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. It was top on my wish list!!! Here’s a look at the set.

This set coordinates with another stamp bundle in the new Mini Catalog, the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. I love that this bundle includes the Strawberry Builder Punch!

The Sweet Strawberry stamp set is the sweetest stamp set ever! Full of plump strawberries and all-occasion sentiments, the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set is perfect for handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more. It’s a set you can use year-round—change the colors of the foliage images to match the season, and use the sentiments anytime. This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. This is a Distinktive** stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images. Here’s a close up of the realistic looking strawberry!

I hadn’t intended to create my own box for today’s project as I was planning to use the new Love You Always Treat Boxes (#154285) found on page 11 in the new Mini Catalog. However, those boxes were much larger than I realized!  While they are great and would be perfect to hold 2 (large) actual chocolate covered strawberries (they are food safe!), it took about 20 of my little “strawberries” to fill the box! I wanted to make several of these treats to give so I opted to make my own box. I’m going to be totally honest here….While I love how these turned out, it took me several attempts (and a few wasted sheets of cardstock) to get the measurements and scores just right for what I wanted!!! That being said, please check back tomorrow and I’ll have the measurements and photo tutorial for you (and possibly some of my “other” versions. LOL).

Which one do you prefer…The stand up or fold over version? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below!
