Project Life by Stampin' Up!

Welcome to another challenge with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are sharing a few layouts for memory keeping using the Project Life by Stampin' Up! system. It's great to get your picture in a book with ease and minimal effort. Project Life by Stampin' Up! does just that. It's memory keeping at it's finest. Gone is the stressing over getting a whole scrapbook completed while taking everything you own out to work on the scrapbook. You need to try it to see just how easy it really is.



This is Rachel's layout using the 6"x8" book. She used pictures from our Leadership Conference in Houston this past January. Over on her blog she has pictures of each page of the layout individually and tells you more about the pages.


Debbie used the Happiness Is set along with the 12" x 12" variety pack of pocket pages to complete her project this week.  Hop on over to her blog here to check out more about it and view the individual pages.

Thanks for visiting us today. Come back next week for some back to school ideas.

Flowers, flowers everywhere!

  Happy Friday and welcome back!  This week we are featuring FLOWERS in our Fabulous Friday designs.  Who doesn't love receiving flowers, real or made of card stock and ink?!  With Stampin' Up! you have so many choices with flowers, too... different designs in our stamp sets, a variety of Big Shot accessories and even punches to choose from.  Let's get you inspired...


  Up first is this great chalkboard technique card designed by Rachel Yurkanin.  Please be sure to visit Rachel's blog here to get all the details about her beautiful card and find out how she achieved this gorgeous look!

  Next is my altered floral picture frame.  Don't you just love these paper roses?  The new Typeset specialty DSP  is perfect for this vintage look.  Please hop on over to my blog post to check out which products I used to create these flowers and frame.


Here is Karla's card for this week. A simple but lovely flower card, she has another shot of her card on her blog that shows a fun embellishment.

  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  We hope we have inspired you with our flower projects.  There are so many ways to create fabulous floral designs with our Stampin' Up! products and we hope you give it a try.  Have a fabulous weekend and see you next week!!

We are in the ColourQ

 
The Sisters are participating in the ColourQ Challenge this week. Every Tuesday a new color combination is posted with a few cards from the Design Team for that blog and there is a contest of sorts for the ColourQueen title. The colors for this week are Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit (the Sisters are using the New InColor Hello Honey because Starfruit has been retired) and Tempting Turquoise.
 
 
 So lets show you what we came up with--
 
Debbie is first with her cute card. I really like her layout with this color combination, don't you? You can click here to go to her blog and read all about it.


Rachel is up next with a pretty take on water coloring her ColourQ colors, and she used Lovely as a Tree-- that set never gets old or goes out of style! Here is a link to read her post for today.


Here is my (Karla) card for this week. Along with the ColourQ Challenge I participated in another sketch challenge-- you can read up on it here.


Thank-you (as always) for stopping by and checking us out for this Fabulous Friday! Why don't you play along with us on this ColourQ Challenge?

Happy Stamping

New Bigshot Dies, Framelits & More

Have you seen all of the new stuff for the BigShot in the 2014-15 Idea Book & Catalog?? The Sisters are going to showcase a few of the new things this week but, you'll have to take a peek at the new catalog to see the rest!


Debbie used one of the new dies for the BigShot this week, it makes a french fry box. Her cute little box is holding cards instead of fries, here is a link to her Fabulous Friday post.


Here is my (Karla's) card for this week. I used a new Embossing Folder (one of five new Embossing Folders) and a new stamp set for boys. My blog post has the details.


Here is Rachel's card for this week.  She used the flower flair and matching stamp set for her card. Check out her blog HERE.

 It seems like there are more things for the BigShot than in the past catalogs....maybe it's just me! Loads and loads of fun new things, check it out! Contact your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator to get a copy of the New IB&C today!

Time to Personalize Things

 Welcome to another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping.  This week we are sharing some the great alphabet items we have in the catalog with you. The alphabets are perfect for school themed projects or just to personalize your project for the recipient. Admit it, you love your name in print. Seeing it makes you happy. Plus, anything with an alphabet reminds you of elementary school, a simpler time in life.

 
First up, we have Debbie's one of a kind card using the alphabet press embossing folder for the background. Visit her blog here to learn all about her card.
 

Next up, we have Rachel's altered notebook using the Larger than Life Alphabet to personalize it. Head over to her blog here to get all the details.

Thanks for visiting us this week. Be sure to head back again next week when we share some of the great new big shot items with you.

See you soon,
Debbie, Karla, & Rachel
