Bundle and Save Day!

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

How are you all doing? I know it's been pretty spotty for me with posting and I want to thank you for sticking with me. I worked almost every day this past school year, Jonah was on two soccer teams, seeing Brittney and Eli and visiting Noah at school with workshops in between, kept me on my toes.  Thank goodness it's summer and I can take a break and chill for a few weeks. Still trying to land that dream teaching job so if you know of any place be sure to let me know. I enjoy subbing and all that it offers but I really want my own classroom. I keep praying the day will happen soon.

So now that you are caught up with where in the world Rachel has been, it's time for another Fabulous Friday posting with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are focusing on the great bundles that are available in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog that was released earlier this month. Don't have your copy yet? Let me know. I have them here.



I used the Sea of Textures bundle, stamp set and framelits, to make my card. There is certainly a lot of texture going on with this card. I embossed the tranquil tide cardstock with the wave folder then added a few pieces of the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper. Next, I diecut the "net" from crumb cake cardstock, stamped the octopus in Fresh Fig and die cut him out and attached with some (awesome) dimensionals of course. Finished it off with a banner greeting that reads, "thanks for reaching out"

It's a great card to give someone that you want to thank for being there for you. Obviously the time of year is perfect for this card too. However, any ocean loving person would love this year round.

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more ideas using bundles. Remember bundle and save. You save 10% the purchase price by getting this in a bundle rather than individually.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon, I have more to share.

Anything Goes Blog Hop

Remember to Create!
Hello Stamping Friends,

It's that time. Time for another awesome blog hop with the Stamper's Dozen group. This month we went with an anything goes theme. So the skies the limit. Be sure to click through each blog when you leave here.

This is a card I made for my son. I sent it to him for finals week. He was studying hard and I knew he would love this card. He can't wait to get his own bulldog, so when I saw this set I knew I needed to get it. I have to admit it was the end of his junior year and this was the first card I sent to him. Bad mom. In all fairness, he goes to school about 40 minutes from home and we go see him or he comes home about once a week or so. Plus we are always texting and sharing things via Facebook.  Of course, he didn't check his mail until after finals were over, but he loved the card and said it brightened his day.


The awesome part is this is part of a bundle with that adorable bench. The stamp set is called Sitting Pretty. The framelits are called Pretty Park. The sahara sand on the bottom is actually embossed (which is a part of the framelit set) with stones. The designer series paper is from the Share what you Love pack. I thought the leaves were the perfect background. To me, it looks like the bench and dogs are in front of a green bush at the park.

I hope you remember to click the links below to continue the inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by.

New Ink Pads from Stampin' Up!

Hello Stamping Friends,

I'm sure by now you have heard about the new ink pads from Stampin' Up! You may have some questions about it and this video and the information following it will certainly be able to answer many of those questions. However, if you have any other questions, I'm always available to help you out. Just ask!

Features of the new ink pads:
  • Fast drying, dye-based ink
  • Acid free
  • Flip top for upside-down storage: pads stay inked during storage
  • Firm foam pad lasts longer than felt pads and provides exceptional ink coverage, especially with solid-image stamps
  • Can be re-inked with matching Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills
  • Coordinates with Stampin’ Up! cardstock, markers, and embellishments
  • Less confusing to open. Opening the new ink pad case is now more simple and intuitive—just insert your thumb in the lip at the front of the case and lift it to open – much like opening a makeup compact.
  • Have a tighter fit between the lid and the base.   TIP:  Add a little wax paper on the “rails” if it’s a stiff during early use.  
  • Stackable. 
  • Improved labels and stickers.
How is the ink different?
The improved ink formula with de-foaming properties will:
  • Reduce ink bubbles.
  • Help you get a smooth coating of ink on the stamp.
  • Help lay down the ink better.
How do I know if my Classic Ink Refill has the new and improved ink?
Beginning with the 2018–2019 Annual Catalog, all ink refills will have the improved ink formula. Also, if you recently received an ink refill and it has the new branding label, it contains the improved ink formula.
Can I use an old ink refill on a new ink pad or a new ink refill on an old ink pad?
Yes! You can with the exception of the Basic Gray Archival and Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ inks. Archival and Classic inks should not be mixed. All other Classic Stampin’ inks will work fine.
Remember, if you have any other questions, just ask! I'd be happy to help.
