Mini Gift Bag with Card Hanger

How sweet is this Mini Gift Bag with the card included on the front?
It's the perfect size for small gifts and it's even got a sweet enclosure card hanging on the front.

The new Seaside Spray Designer Series Paper comes from a 6" x 6" paper stack that showcases all five new In Colors with four fun patterns in each.  The pop of Terracotta Tile on the front just brings the whole look together.

I love that Stampin' Up! also has coordinating  Scallop Edge Linen Ribbon and Faceted Gems in all five colors.  That's one of the many awesome things about SU!....everything coordinates and takes the guessing out of creating.

This project was featured on this week's "It's a Date at 8" on Facebook Live.  If you don't follow me on the Suitably Stamped Facebook Page you might have missed it.  Be sure to follow me and also enable notifications so you'll be sure to not miss them.  SO many fun little time.

All of the supplies are available at

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead....

BIG Announcement from Stampin' Up!

This is BIG!

Stampin Up! made a BIG announcement.  BIG changes are coming to the die cutting system and the paper trimmer.  Stampin’ Up! will be replacing the current Big Shot. This is exciting news, as it means that Stampin’ Up! will be working directly with the manufacturer to bring all of us a new die cutting/embossing machine and that we will have more direct control over the design AND availability of products!!

Also, there will be a brand NEW and IMPROVED Paper Trimmer.  You've asked for improvements and they listened.

What you need to know....
  • There will be a gap in time between when the Big Shot and the Stampin’ Trimmer retire with this current catalog (or sell out) until the time when the new products are available (we don’t know exactly how long this will be, but there will NOT be a Big Shot or a paper trimmer in the new 2019-2020 catalog in June)
  • If you need to stock up on some Stampin’ Trimmer supplies, do that soon. They have ordered what they hope to be a 6 month supply of trimmer blades, but they could go quickly. (Links below)
  • Continue to use your Big Shot or other die cutting machine with all Stampin’ UP! embossing folders and dies
  • Watch for a new style of dies and embossing folders in the new 2019-2020 catalog!! Continue to use them with your current die cutting machine.
  • Dies, embossing folders and trimmer accessory items COULD sell out quickly, so shop early and don’t wait for the retiring list on Monday, April 15 to place your order if you have had your eye on any of the current dies or folders!

Amazing Life -Spring Has Sprung!

Spring has SPRUNG!!

Wahooooo!!!  I know it's still VERY chilly out there but there's hope.  Beautiful, warm, sunny days are on the horizon and spring flowers have already started to pop up here and there.

I've had a lot of fun getting spring underway in the studio.  I've been loving the VERY popular Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper.  You just can't be more "springy" than gingham, right?  All of the colors in the stack are just lovely.  It includes, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Peekaboo Peach.  It pairs perfectly with the "Amazing Life" stamp set.  The images are versatile and so pretty.

These cards and Pinwheel boxes were featured on Facebook Live tonight on my Suitably Stamped Facebook page.  If you'd like to see the video which includes step-by-step instructions, click HERE or on the video below.

All of the supplies are listed below and are available at my ONLINE STORE.

Check out these stinkin' cute Pinwheel Boxes.

Wishing you a wonderful first day of spring with lots of time to get your fingers inky.

Stamped Blessings,
