CASEing the Sweet Stack Project Kit for the Pals Blog Hop

blog hop badgeWelcome to the Pals Blog Hop for February 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are CASE-ing a project shown in a current Stampin’ Up! catalog. After all, with the Annual, Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs available right now, there is much inspiration to choose from. We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.


Little Letters Thinlits, It's My Party

I am so excited to share this banner with you today! If you came from Katy McGloin’s blog, you saw her beautiful CASEd banner from page 30 of the Annual Catalog. She really is the Queen of 3D! I love those rosettes and the wreath is stunning!! Well, Katy (my wonderful sister and upline) had an idea that I could do the same banner but use products from the Occasions Catalog. She knows that I am a terrible CASEr so it’s better to give me an idea and let me have fun with it. I had just received the great DSP, It’s My Party, so all of the papers were from that one stash of paper. What I really love about that DSP pack is that you actually get enough to do larger projects without the fear of running out. I hope they do more of that in the future.

It's My Party, Little Letters Thinlits 2


Here’s a closer look of one of the banner pieces for you to see. You can hang this banner any place you want – just make sure your hanging ribbon is long enough. It’s really easy to make; the only slightly time consuming part was making the rosettes. I made those with the Scoring Tool. The DSP was cut at 1 3/4″ and scoring every 1/4″ and then making “mountain” and “valley” folds. Everything else is made with punches and thinlits/framelits! I used my hot glue gun with most of the layers (as well as adhering to the hanging ribbon) to make sure they didn’t come off. You can’t tell from the photo but the letters are Black Glimmer Paper cut with the Little Letters Thinlits.


Sweet Stack Project Kit

After finishing the banner, it got me into the mood of making more party decor. After some thought, I remembered the Sweet Stack Project Kit. This will be a cute centerpiece for our family birthday parties! I found the sample on page 152 in the Annual Catalog and changed it up just a bit. Homemade for You Stamp Set was used for the little flap pieces, and also added the new Watermelon Wonder 1″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the base and In Color Blossom Accents to the centers of the flowers. You probably noticed that I only did one layer on the cake as well. The letter stickers are great but you have to be creative if you need more than 2 of any letters. My original idea was to say “CELEBRATE” but unless I played around with some other letters to make an “E” it was going to say “CELEBRAT”! LOL So I went with “MAKE A WISH” instead. It works… Here is a close-up of the cake:

Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set Sale is Starting Today!

Hello, Stampers! There comes a time when you have bought almost every single item that has been in Stampin’ Up! catalogs (since I joined almost 5 years ago), you must start purging (or move to a larger house, which my husband has flatly refused LOL). Therefore, I have been reorganizing, and making some very difficult decisions on what I can realistically keep. So, I hope you will take some time to look at the list below! There may be more items added so this list will be be added to my SS Store menu. I will be going through embellishments, ribbons, and tools, too! If you need any of those items before they are posted, email me and I will see if I have them.

I am ready to let go of the following stamp sets, but first, here are the prices.

  • Clear and Photopolymer Stamp Sets: $10
  • Wood Stamp Sets: $13
  • Single Stamp Sets: $10 Background; $6 for wood or $4 for Clear and Photopolymer

Before you review the list, read this:

  1. If a stamp set is listed twice, it is because it is offered as wood, clear or photopolymer as well. Please make sure that you specify the type of stamp you want. Prices do not include shipping costs, and the majority will be sent Priority/Flat Rate through USPS.
  2. My email is on the right sidebar. Just click and your email service should generate an email addressed to me. If it doesn’t, email me at [email protected]
  3. I will be happy to send you a photo of any stamp set if you need to see them. There are just too many here to do it for all of them.
  4. First Come, First Served! Once the payment transaction is complete, I will mark it as SOLD.
  5. Buy 5 and Get 1 FREE (the lowest priced item)
  6. Payments are through Paypal only to [email protected]
  7. Your purchase does not go towards my Secret Stamper Reward program until you have placed an online order through me.
  8. Don’t see a stamp set that you are looking for? Don’t be afraid to ask because I might have it or can try locating one for you through my Pals group! And keep checking back here for more additions!!
  9. I will delete the sold stamps on a monthly basis to keep the list neat and manageable.
