To Help Others…

How does a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator help others?  As a demonstrator I am able to share the wonderful world of creativity.  Everyone has their own way of being creative while helping others.  For instance, my friend Joan is a painter.  She helps those who have been fighting addiction, or family members of an addict through painting.  She uses this medium to help others express their feelings, whether that’s pain or anger.  It’s a way for them to get things out.  Her students do a wonderful job and you can see the emotion in their work.

Now you may say that you are not creative. That’s not true.  Everyone is in some sort of way, whether it’s painting, paper crafting, scrapbooking, playing a musical instrument or being a math whiz.  Everything you do takes some sort of creativity.

Expressing your creativity can make you happier, less anxious, problem solve, more resilient and it has numerous physical and mental health benefits. It’s an outlet and release from stress. Another example, when my mother passed away a couple of years ago I had my papercrafting to go to.  It would give me a mental break from the grief and taking care of everything.  It gave me a time to feel good, even if it was only for a short time.

Creativity also gives you the opportunity to meet new people. It gives you the opportunity to make lasting relationships, even if it’s only a crafting one.

Creativity also gives you the opportunity to create something that means something. Whenever I make a card or decoration for someone, I take into account their favorite color and things that they like. As I was looking in the new 2017-2018 catalog I came across a new stamp set called “More Than Chocolate” and the first person I thought of was a co-worker who absolutely LOVES her chocolate.  Just knowing this about my co-worker I have numerous ways of expressing my creativity for her birthday or just because I like working with you cards and treat boxes. I know my aunt’s favorite color is purple and she loves it when I do some sort of fancy fold card for her. That’s how you create something that means something.

Enjoy your day and find something creative!!

Balloon Adventures…again

Are you ready for fun card which is perfect for celebrating any occasion worth celebrating? I mean really, how can you not be ready to have some fun when you see balloons, right? And let’s not forget…GLITTER!

20170331_143521_wm

I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set to create the focal point of the front of the card and the matching Ballon Pop-Up Thinlets die was used to create a pop-up for the inside of the card. It is a shadow box card that pops open when you open it up.

When you use the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits Die, it makes assembly even easier. All you have to do is cut out the cardstock for the inside of your card, and position the thinlit die in the center. There is a “point” on the thinlit die, to show you where to position the die to the center. Then it cuts out all pieces, and even does the score lines for you. I made it happen on the very first try. The stamp set itself is good for all ages. There is even a greeting that says “Open me Already”, you could use this on gift tags for both birthdays and Christmas. The greetings in this set are split up, so that you can use different wording each time. For example, one time you could say “The best is yet to come, let’s celebrate” or the next time you could say “The best is yet to come, Party On” The balloons that are in this stamp set, also co-ordinate with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, so lots of uses with this card, for young and old.
Bundle and Save… if you purchase both the Stamp Set and the Thinlits Die together you will save 10%. You could also earn one or both FREE or discounted just by hosting your own class. If you want more information on hosting your own, email me today, I would be happy to give you the details.

Today’s card is made with the Special Reasons stamp set and Stylish Stems framelits. The Stitch Shapes and Layered Squares framelits made such a cute little flower!

20170304_163545

I did a watercolor wash on the front of the card with Certainly Celery and then that was layered over Mint macaroon cardstock. I pieced together the stem, leaves & a flower for the inside of the card… that adds a nice sweet touch…don’t you think?!?

Nailed It

Well, what can I say…Monday came & went before I knew it. But I just had to share a card that I made with the NAILED IT Stamp Set & the BUILD IT Framelits…which is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

20170228_094829_wm

I just love the collage effect. It was so easy & fast to create this card!! The best part is you can make a lot of these cards & they’ll all be different! I made this one as a Father’s Day card, but it can be a Birthday card, and even a Thank You card. One of the stamps says ‘Thanks for always building me up’ so that is perfect for a thank you card. I used a blender pen with Crushed Curry & Basic Gray to color in the tools.
