Sunflower Bookmark & Starter Kit Promotion!

Today, I want to share a bookmark that I made for my team members, the Sunflower Papercrafters(I haven't given them out yet so I hope they don't check my blog today! hee hee!)

I used the Two Tags die for the Sizzix Big Shot.  (Click HERE for details of the great BIG SHOT SALE I have on right now!)

I ran it through on Confetti White cardstock.  The sunflower is made with the Scallop Circle punch.  I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip, and then slit each petal towards the middle (not too far!).  The middle of the flower was punched with the 1" circle punch out of Chocolate Chip Designer Paper.  The stem is Old Olive cardstock and the leaf is made out of Old Olive satin ribbon.  I used the Timeless Type Alphabet Junior sizzlits dies (love, love, LOVE these!!!), to cut out each girl's initial. What do you think? Cute, eh!? I hope they like them! : )

I am lucky to have a wonderful team of ladies who share the same passion as me.  My team is made up of different types of demos, some for the discount and some hobby demos.

When I bought the starter kit last year during Sale-a-bration, I really only did it for the discount (or so that's what I thought!).  I never imagined that I would LOVE doing what I do!  I have met so many wonderful people, made some fantastic new friends and get to share my passion for papercrafting with others who get just as excited as I do about a new SU catalog, or matching ink, cardstock and ribbon! *wink*

Would you like to get all of your products discounted?  Or get your Stampin’ Up! supplies at a discount AND get the same 20% income (with the potential for up to 40%) on all of your friends’ orders, too?  Think you might like to become a demonstrator and earn lots of FREE products and make a little extra money too? Then now is the time to buy the starter kit or join my team!
We are nearing the end of a great Starter Kit promotion!  Not only do you have 2 kits to choose from but you get 15% off AND a FREE stamp set of your choice (valued at up to $63.95) from Stampin' Up!……

Plus, as a BONUS, for the remainder of the month…purchase one of the starter kits from me and get a Sale-A-Bration stamp set for free!

Click here for more info on the kits

It's really easy to sign up!
Go HERE and click Join Now on the bottom left corner.  Enter "roxiescreations" as the password.
I'll send you the stamp set in the mail if you are not local. (No commitment needed) 

Have questions? Call or email me.

February Stamp Club card - Folded Paper Frame

Today I want to share with you a card that was made at our February Stamp club.  This "Folded Paper Frame" technique was featured on Splitcoaststampers a month or so ago.  I knew that my customers would love this because you can use it on a card or on a scrapbook layout.

Here is the card we made:

The base of the card was cut out by running Old Olive cardstock and the squallop square clear die through the Bigshot.  A layer of So Saffron cardstock, measuring 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" was adhere to the base. To make the square frame, I started with a piece of Sweet Pea DP measuring 4" x 4".  You can find the tutorial on how to make the frame HERE

Before I adhered the frame to the card front, I stamped a piece of 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" Naturals Vanilla with the stem image from the Great Friend stamp set in Old Olive.  I also stamped the butterfly image, from the same stamp set, in Tempting Turquoise on a scrap piece of Naturals Vanilla.  I cut it using my paper snips and then adhered it to the center of my frame with a dimensional.  I added a piece of Tempting Turquoise ribbon to the corner before gluing the frame to my card. 
The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. The size is perfect to fit into the Word Window punch.

I love making 4" x 4" square cards but always struggled with finding an envelope for it until... Stampin' Up came out with Glassine bags (# 117228) in the new Mini Occasions catalogue.  This fits a 4" x 4" card perfectly!
We folded the top of the bag and made a belly band to keep it closed.  See picture below...

I hope you've enjoyed today's card!  What's to come tomorrow !?! Tool Tip Friday :)

Don’t forget there is still 3 weeks left of Sale-A-Bration! Now is the time to book your workshop to receive the additional benefits that come with this exciting promotion! Also, there is still time to place your order to receive FREE stamp sets or even an exclusive punch!
