OH MY!!! That's a big suite right? With tons to choose from - LOVE!

I chose to make an easel card that really displays this GOR-JEE-OUS cake on a platter and a sweet treat to go along with it.

www.AStampAbove.com

I have a video to show you how easy an easel card is with lots of great tips for you here:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Easel cards are so easy to make if you have the dimensions - I like to cut all my layers first and then start designing!

www.AStampAbove.com

Here's a close up of my cake easel panel. There's so many pretty combinations I could have used for this. I love the sprigs of greenery coming off the cake. I used Stampin' Blends to color the flowers in. And even though the cake pedestal looks colored - Silver Foil Sheets were used for it and also the bow on the top of the cake and the platter. That foil paper is so difficult to photograph.

The inside of my card is decorated with a 1/2" strip of the DSP and a little flower die cut - make those insides pretty too!

www.AStampAbove.com

Dimensions:

  • DSP (stripes) 4" x 2-1/4" & (floral) 4" x 3" & (stripes) 1/2" x 5-1/4"
  • Berry Burst 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" scored at 1/2" & 2-1/2" & 3-3/4" x 2-3/4"
  • Whisper White 2-5/8" x 3-5/8" & 4" x 5-1/4"

I used the same flower die cut for my treat bag tag only I used Silver Foil Sheets instead of Berry Burst. Don't these look delicious? The 6" x 8" cello bags are perfect for treats like this!

 The Sweet Soiree bundle has so many possibilities! I've barely even touched the tip of what you can do with it.

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

Valentine

Wait...WHAT?

 

Today I have a great organizational tip that involves an inexpensive find at my Dollar General store: 

 If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

 

Joke

This made me giggle...

Bill lives in the (People's Republic of) Boulder Colorado:

It's been snowing all night. So the morning goes like this;

8:00 I made a snowman.

8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn't make a snow
woman.

8:15 So, I made a snow woman.

8:17 The nanny of the neighbors complained about the snow woman's
voluptuous chest.

8:20 The gay couple living nearby grumbled that it could have been
two snowmen instead.

8:25 The vegans at No. 12 complained about the carrot nose, as
veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with.

8:28 I am being called a racist because the snow couple is white.

8:31 The Muslim gent across the road wants the snow woman to wear a
head-scarf.

8:40 Someone calls the cops who show up to see what's going on.

8:42 I am told that the broomstick of the snowman needs to be
removed because it could be used as a deadly weapon.

Things get worse after I mutter : "Yeah, if it's up your
a***"

8:45 Local TV news crew shows up. I am asked if I know the
difference between snowmen and snow-women?

I reply, "Snowballs" and am called a sexist.

8:52 My phone is seized and thoroughly checked while I am being
blindfolded and flown to the police station in a helicopter.

9:00 I'm on the news as a suspected terrorist bent on stirring up
trouble during this difficult weather.

9:10 I am asked if I have any accomplices.

9:29 A little known jihadist group has claimed it was their plot.

Moral: There is no moral to this story. It's just the America we live
in today!

Facebook Live Projects 2.11.18

FB Live Blog

Just in case you missed it - my Facebook Live stamping event was a super fun experience! I went live Sunday night and stamped for about an hour. Thank you if you were part of the fun!!! Everyone's comments and encouragement were just what I needed to calm my nerves after a rocky start. I will be announcing the winners of all three drawings on Sunday night at 6:00 pm Central Time when I go live again! Everyone that participated had 3 opportunities to be entered to win prizes - 1) commenting, 2) sharing the video and 3) placing an order. Please join me this coming Sunday - I promised I will use the Waterfront stamp set - you don't want to miss it. 

I used the PAINTED WITH LOVE SPECIALITY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER on all my project - I really wanted to show that even though it's featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog as a Valentine paper - it works beautifully for cards other than Valentines. Here are the first projects I made - a gorgeous birthday card and a PARTY IN A BOX to match using our Pizza Boxes. The stamp set and leaf die is from PETAL PALETTE and the "celebrate" is part of the CELEBRATE YOU THINLITS - FREE during Sale-a-Bration.

www.AStampAbove.com

Here's the second project - a DOUBLE DUTCH FOLD sympathy card - don't you love that peachy colored paper? I used the HEARTFELT BLOOMS - a FREE stamp set during Sale-a-Bration:

www.AStampAbove.com

And last but certainly not least - I stamped right on the PAINTED WITH LOVE SPECIALTY DESIGNER SERIES PAPER and cut out the flower and butterfly to make these gorgeous cards! This stamp set is BEAUTIFUL  DAY - love these bold images!

www.AStampAbove.com

You'll find all the products I used for these projects down below in the PRODUCT LIST. Just in case you missed it - you'll find all the details and measurements in my Facebook Live video:

EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZIE!

 

Q & A:

Q: Can I watch your live broadcast Sunday night if I don't have a Facebook Account?

A: NO - you will not be able to watch me live but you will be able to watch it once I post the video to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/KellyAcheson/videos?view_as=subscriber

Q: What is the benefit of watching you live?

A: Well - considering the amount of editing I do to my YouTube videos (it's extensive) it might be super entertaining...like we're talking big belly laughs! Joking aside - you will be able to interact with me while I'm stamping! You can make comments and ask questions. You can make suggestions and requests. You can also WIN FREE STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCT!!! There will be drawings for your participation! Entries for commenting, sharing my video to your own FB page and placing online orders using the designated HOST CODE.

Q: If I don't have a Facebook account - should I get one?

A: OMGosh YES....without a doubt!!!! As a stamper you are missing out! And as a human - FB is so much fun! Keeping up with my friends and relatives brings me so much joy! Some of these people I would lose touch with or not even really know if it wasn't for FB. And if there's someone you WANT TO LOSE TOUCH with you can just UNFOLLOW them and they won't even know!!!

Q: I don't want to be friends with my family on Facebook - how do I avoid that?

A: You pick a fictitious name! You don't have to use your real name - you can get real creative and come up with something that makes you laugh - like SUPER SPRINKLE CUPCAKE! That'll keep you anonymous!

Q: The volume is very low on the video - what can I do?

A: If you are having a hard time hearing me when I'm live it is most likely your "buffering" which is a problem with slower speed internet connections. The only thing you can do is get a better internet provider.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions that I haven't covered here. And let me know if you have any suggestions for tips or techniques for upcoming FB Live events. I'm planning on doing these every week - OH MY!

 

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to check out this blog post!

Feature Friday - MY Big Announcement & Cool Card

Fullsizeoutput_761

Happy Friday! I'm excited to share this fun fold card with you - called a DOUBLE Z FOLD using the BUBBLE OVER BUNDLE. One of my FAV's in the Occasions Mini Catalog. You can make so many fun cards featuring soda, root beer and beer beer cards for girls and boys, men and women. Almost all the paper I used for this card is FREE with your $50 order. The BUBBLE & FIZZ DESIGNER SERIES PAPER coordinates with this bundle. And if you don't need patterned paper with soda/beer bottles on it you can use the other side for some bright and fun prints instead.

www.AStampAbove.com

 

Here's a video showing you how simple this card is and also MY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! I'm over the moon at what the future holds for me!!!! 

 

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Here's the inside of my card using the STYLIZED BIRTHDAY stamp - it's a single stamp available in the big catalog - and my all time favorite birthday greeting. I love the font and the big size!

If you don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like a hard copy of our catalogs - just pop me an email: kelly@AStampAbove.com and I'd be happy to mail them to you.

I have a video that will show you some great tips on making the shaker card and also give you a step-by-step for the cute little box here:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Here's a close up of the shaker - I love love love the GOLD GLITTER FLAKES! And who doesn't love a card that they can shake?

Here's the inside of my card - I used 1/2" strips of the DSP for the top and bottom to jazz it up a bit!
