SU! Day Of Caring – Open to ALL!

 

Stampin’ UP! regularly schedules a Day of Service among its employees, and this time the event is open to anyone who wants to participate!  For this year’s Day of Service, they will use the Share Sunshine PDF Download to make and send cards to loved ones, frontline workers, etc.  You can find my previous post about the Share Sunshine PDF download here.

The public event will occur on Thursday, May 21st at 2:00pm MT (4:00pm ET) and it will be held on SU! CEO, Sara Douglass’s personal FB page, which you can find here.  There’s a little bit of prep required if you want to participate in the live event.  But, if you are unable to participate in the live craft party, the replay will be available to view any time on Sara’s Facebook page.  And of course, you are welcome to just watch the event if that’s more suitable for you.

To follow along during the live craft party, you will need card bases, Designer Series Paper (or any double-sided 12×12 craft paper you have on hand), a printed copy of the Share Sunshine PDF Download (which can be purchased here) (or use your own sentiments), embellishments, adhesive, and scissors or a Paper Trimmer. To make it easy for everyone to participate, we’ve also created an instruction sheet for Sara’s four-step cards, which includes a cut map for your Designer Series Paper (any Designer Series Paper will work). Note: A full package of 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper will be enough to make four kits (each kit makes 20 cards), or you can just work with 3 sheets of 12×12 paper to make 20 cards.  You can find the instruction sheet here. You are encouraged you to come prepared with pre-cut Designer Series Paper!

Sara shared on her FB page how to cut the 12×12 paper so that you’d have exactly what you need to make the cards.  Her video for that is here.

Here are a few samples of the cards Sara has created using the suggested layout from her PDF above.

 

Happy Stamping!

Monday Morning Puzzle Fun!

 

If you remember, a few weeks again I posted info about Stampin’ UP!’s promotion to help recognize all the amazing individuals who have gone above and beyond the challenge in the battle against the pandemic.  That promotion is still going on so there’s still time to purchase and download the amazing bundle of sentiments!  All the details on how to do that are below.

But, I thought I’d add a little fun into the mix today.  You’ll remember that I made this card to give to a very good friend using sentiments from the COVID-19 promotion.  If you click on it, this image will be turned into a jigsaw puzzle that you can assemble right at your desktop!  How cool is that??  The puzzle pieces will all be shown in the direction they need to be, you just move them around like you would a regular puzzle.  Another demonstrator shared this feature on her blog and I loved it so much I wanted to share it with you 🙂  You can see her blog here, Song of my Heart Stampers).

Have fun playing and have a wonderful week!

Corona Craziness!

In the last couple of months we have all been feeling the stress of having to shelter in place, work from home, and home school our children among many other things.  The entire world is experiencing something that I don’t think any of us could have imagined.  It can be very overwhelming!   And while I would never make light of such a serious situation, I do think that it’s ok to try to find something that helps you smile, or even laugh a little bit.  And that brings to me this card I made for a friend 🙂

I recently posted about an initiative SU! has taken to raise money for a couple of organizations that are on the forefront of the pandemic.  You can read that post here.  I was finally able to sit down and play with the sentiments and came up with this card.  It came together pretty quickly, I used the sentiment from Thanks for the Laughs and one of the images from Young at Heart, both of which will NOT carry over to the new annual catalog.  In fact, there are a few things I used on this card that will be retiring soon, the Starburst Punch, Mint Macaron Ribbon and the Garden Lane Designer Series paper.  So if there’s anything that catches your eye, hurry over to the Last Chance page and grab them (they are only available while supplies last!)

Inside card

I find that crafting in general and making cards specifically helps to focus on something positive.  Let’s face it, we all need a distraction once in a while when things get just a little too heavy.  I hope that my card brought a smile to your face and I also hope you are all able to find a little respite from all that’s going on.

Thanks for stopping by,

Toni
