LINK TO CHART you can download. You can always find it under my Tool Box tab too.

I have compiled a nice updated chart of the adhesives Stampin' Up! has to offer. A while back I did a whole series of posts and video about our adhesives. That was the start of my Tool Box series, which I would love to get back to someday. 

I made the chart based on what is on the Annual Catalog on page 213 2018 Annual Catalog. I added in US items numbers and pricing. 

Feel free to print off the chart and hang it somewhere handy.  Some people find charts and printouts like this one very handy. My Tool Box tab contains a lot of such useful documents. Please explore it sometime. 

When I was compiling this chart I found our old adhesive removers have been retired. I'm sad now. They were very handy and very affordable.

Sneaky Peeky at the Holiday Catalog



This is a literal sneak peek!

Have no idea how the emojis got on my screen but there is no going back. Now that the catalog is live I thought this was worth a good giggle!

But I do talk about some good information. I redid the video a few days later. Will post that separately.

Oy. Technology at times really, well it just really!

Make Your Projects Stand out with Faux Leather




Did you know that you can make faux or fake looking leather with just a piece of cardstock, ink pad, sponge, and embossing folder? Why yes you can. I have helped you by creating the folders, inks and cardstock I think give the most realistic look. But I saw a Lemon Lime Twist couch the other day so, the creative world is your oyster on this one.

If you try this technique, send me a picture. I would love to post it here and give you full credit, of course.

*AC = Annual Catalog 2018-19 from Stampin’ Up!

§ Run cardstock through your Big Shot using folder of choice. 
§ Cut your round sponge into 3 or 6 pieces. Hold using clothespin.
§ Hold sponge straight down on the round side. 
§ Pick up a bit of ink from your pad.
§ Figure out if you want the embossed (raised image) or debossed (recessed image).
§ Rub on cardstock in small circular motion until desired color is achieved.
-->
§ For white and vanilla, use a clean sponge to buff the cardstock in circular motion. It creates a wax like shine.

Spooky Treat packaging from Stampin' Up!




The Toil and Trouble Product Suite on pages 48-51 of the Holiday 2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog features all the crafting goodies you need to make your home spooky ready and treats packaged. The Baker Boxes offer food safe packaging for your holiday treats, any holiday. Need to send home a slice of pie to Aunt Betty? No problem. Valentine cookies? We got you covered. Linda's secret Christmas fudge? Sure thing.

The boxes are easily sponged or spritzed to color coordinate with your occasion or packaged goodies.  Just grab one of the Stampin' Up! Spritzers, an ink refill and water or rubbing alcohol. There is no magic amounts or formula. You mix to your preference. Usually just a few drops of ink refill in the tube is enough. I like a mix of water and alcohol. The alcohol dries faster but you get no way to move that ink around then. 50/50 works best. You get some of the play with having water without turning your creation into a soggy mess.

Learn about all the great products in the video. The framelits cut out many images in the coordinating paper. There are several coordinating products that go with this suite.

Shop Now for your Baker Boxes!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope this inspires you to step up your craft packaging this holiday season. ~Sandy
