These are a few of my favorite things....

  Happy Friday and welcome back for another edition of Fabulous Friday here on the Sisters in Stamping blog!  Stampin' Up! has introduced all kinds of fun new products over the last month in both the Holiday catalog and after the Stampin' Up! convention and we'd like to share with you some of our favorites in our projects this week.

  First up is this fabulous "Celebrate" banner created by Rachel Yurkanin.  She made it using the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit from the Holiday catalog.  Be sure to visit Rachel's blog here to get all the details!

   Next we have Karla's great Christmas card featuring four new products from the Holiday catalog including  the Season of Style designer paper stack, Cherry Cobbler 1" stitched edge grosgrain ribbon and label bracket punch bundle with coordinating stamp set Tags 4 You and label bracket punch.  For more information about Karla's card please visit her blog here.

  And last we have my fun interactive flip-flop card made with the awesome new Label Card Thinlits die for the Big Shot.  I love this style of card and could never figure out how to make one... now it's super-easy with this card framelit die!  Be sure to hop on over to my blog here to see what's on the other side of the ice cream cone and for more information about the card.

  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  We hope we have inspired you to check out all the new product offerings from Stampin' Up!  Have a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend and see you back here next week for some masculine cards!!

Back to School

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. We are excited to share with you this week some great Back to School projects. It's that time of year, and we know some of you are welcoming it with open arms and others are kicking and screaming as they try to hold onto every last minute of summer if you are lucky enough to have your kids still home. Regardless of which "school" of thought you are in, you will need some ideas so we are here to help you out.

Here is Debbie's back to school project. Her kids really are back to school already. She made a scrapbook page using a layout design she was inspired by on pinterest.  And the best thing of all, it is all digitally made using My Digital Studio. Make sure you head over to Debbie's blog to get more details on how she made her page.

Here is Karla's back to school project.  It's quite a treat that any teacher would welcome on the first day of school (or any day throughout the year to be completely honest). Can you guess what's inside this ruler? In our opinion, the treat inside definitely "rules". Check out Karla's blog for more information.

And last but not least we have Rachel's back to school project.  She created a couple of cute little treats that would brighten the first day of school of any student or teacher. It's a trio of things that would come in handy for either. Jump on over to Rachel's blog for complete details.

Pinspirations from the Sisters

Isn't it funny how Pintrest has caught on so fast!? I read the other day there is a whole new language now to go with it, like the title of this blog post "a Pinspiration"-- it means to be inspired to create something from an pin that inspires you. So, that's what the Sisters are doing this week, showing you some Pinspiration.

Here is Rachel's project for this week, if you go to her blog you can see more pictures and the Pin that inspired this cute book mark.

Debbie is up next with a lovely piece of jewelry. She has posted pictures of her inspiration, visit her post here to see them.

Thank-you for stopping today, hope your having a wonderful Summer-- the weeks are just flying by!

Fun and fabulous new Big Shot accessories!

  Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by!  This week we chose to feature new Big Shot accessories from the Annual Catalog and Holiday catalog with our Fabulous Friday projects.  Stampin' Up! has an awesome selection of impressions folders, dies and framelits to choose from and if you don't own a Big Shot yet, I know you're going to want one after seeing all the great ways you can use it to add texture and die-cut card stock (you can also cut a ton of other materials including fabric!).

  First up this week is this fun Halloween card from Rachel Yurkanin featuring both a framelit and an impressions folder... it's not too early to start thinking about your Halloween projects!!  Be sure to visit Rachel's blog to get all the details about her card.

   Next, we have a great card created by Guest Designer Jennifer Rawlings.  She used three different Big Shot accessories for her card - can you guess which ones they are?  Be sure to hop over to this blog post to get all the details.

  Last but not least we have my contribution this week - I designed a fun gift bag and made this super-cute bow using a new Big Shot die from the Holiday catalog.  Please visit my blog for more information about recreating this project and to see another version of the bag.

  As always, thanks so much for stopping by to check out our Fabulous Friday projects!  We hope we have inspired you with our Big Shot projects.  Next week we're going to share our Pinterest-inspired projects so you won't want to miss it!!  Have a wonderful weekend and happy stamping!

A Bundle of Goodness

Welcome and thank you for stopping this week. We love that you come by each and every week to see what we have to share with you.  This week we are focusing on the great bundles in both the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog. Did you know that you can bundle and save?  There are so many awesome bundles that include either a stamp set and punch or a stamp set and framelits that you are just going to have to have. We think it's even better that you get to save 15% off of retail prices if you purchase the bundle rather than the items individually.

Be sure to check out the bundles for yourself and add them to your wish list or contact your demonstrator today to order them now.

First up we have Debbie's card which uses the Tags for You Bundle from the Holiday Catalog. She also used some other great things from the Holiday catalog so be sure to check out her blog for the complete details on this great Fall/Thanksgiving card.

Next up we have Rachel's card which uses the Flower Shop bundle from the Annual Catalog. The bundle is such a fun one to create many different looking flowers with which you can use in so many different projects. Head over to her blog for more information on how she made her card.
