Reinkers are fabulous, too!

  Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by today!  This week for our Fabulous Friday projects we want to share with you different ways to use reinkers/ink refills... not only are they a necessity for keeping your ink pads nice and juicy, but they can be used in a variety of stamping techniques!!  Plus at just $2.95, they're inexpensive and so versatile!  It's a good habit to get into to purchase a reinker at the same time you buy an ink pad... that way you have it when you need it.  And did you know that you can use your Stampin' Up! ink refills to reink your markers?  Just pull out the brush tip carefully and put a few drops down in the barrel of your marker. Replace the tip and store your marker horizontally so the ink can settle between the fine point and brush tip.  Easy, right?!  And now on to our projects...

  Up first is our guest designer (and my talented sister in real life) Cindy Blekas.  She created these stunning cards using reinkers and water to create the backgrounds.  Please check out her blog here to find out exactly how she did it.

  And here is my card featuring the Reinker Background technique.  Like Cindy, I used my reinkers to create a background for my card, but instead of using water my technique features rubbing alcohol.  Please hop over to my blog here to find out how quick and easy this technique is.

  We hope we have given you some fun ideas for using reinkers and that you'll add some to your next order.  You'll be glad you did, especially when you need them for your ink pads, markers and to try these great techniques.  Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by each week!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. We decided to make some extra special valentine's to share with each and every one of you. We love that you follow our blog each and every week and keep coming back.

Valentine's Day should be to show your love to everyone you know, not just a significant other. So be sure to take a moment and tell everyone today that you love them for who they are.

First up, we have a great pop-up box card made by Debbie. This will certainly tell someone that you will "owl"ways love them. Head over to her blog for more details on this great card.

And next, we have Rachel's special valentine made up of many different sized hearts. Be sure to go over to Rachel's blog for complete details of how she made this valentine.
Here is Karla's card, she used 2 Sale-A-Bration products to make the fun card. You can click here to go to her blog and find out what Stampin' Up! product she used. 
Happy Valentine's Day!

Fabulous Stampin' Up! Scrapbook Layouts

  Happy Friday and thank you for visiting us today!  This week for Fabulous Friday we are featuring scrapbook layouts... it's always great to be able to get your photos onto a page rather than have them living on your smart phone or computer, isn't it?!  And when you can use all the fabulous Stampin' Up! stamps, papers, inks, tools and embellishments that you already have in your craft stash it's all the better.  The very fact that it all coordinates across the many product lines is fabulous indeed!  Ready to get inspired?

  First up is this awesome page by Rachel Yurkanin.  You'll find all the details about it on her blog post here.

  And here is the creative layout designed by Karla Anders.  Check out what products Karla used on her blog here.

  And last up is my "Love" page... I fell in love with the gorgeous Venetian Romance designer paper pack and created a page with a nontraditional color scheme.  Please visit my blog here to find out more about my project.

  We hope we have inspired you with our scrapbook layouts this week!  It's never too late to get started scrapbooking your photos.  And it's easy to do with your fabulous Stampin' Up! stash.  Why not capture your memories and make a page or two this weekend?  Your family will be glad you did!!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
