Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals

Wow!  Every Tuesday, Stampin' Up! has new, remarkable deals.  There are some great ones this week.  Even I am going to take advantage of a couple of them.  Click on "Weekly Deals" to see them all!

If you don't have the "Gift Box Punchboard" (135863), I would highly recommend that you pick that one up!  You can do much, much more with it than just Gift Boxes.  If you have a Big Shot or any manual die cutting machine, the Hamburger Box Die (133724), the Hearth & Home Die (139666), and the Leaflets Framelit Die (138283) are bargains this week.  All three are staples for scrapbooking and card making.  Even making a mixed media project the Hearth & Home Die and Leaflets Die are invaluable.  The Leaflets Die has a coordinating stamp set called Vintage Leaves (138802) that makes your leaves so realistic looking it is uncanny.  I used those two for many projects this last Fall.

The Metal Rimmed Pearls (138394) are a beautiful addition to glitz and glam out any project you are working on.

In future blogs, I will list products that I have used, so you will be able to see how some of these deals turn into great bargains. 

If you are interested in using dies and haven't acquired a manual die cutting machine yet, Stampin' Up! sells the Big Shot (113439).  It is a quick, easy way to cut out all sorts of beautiful images.  Many of the dies listed in the Stampin' Up! Store have coordinating stamps. 

Check all of these items and more out by clicking the "Let's Shop" button on my blog or "Shop Now" on the top banner.  Also, don't forget to sign up for blog updates.  If you are interested in joining my Creating With Paper team, just click on "Join Me" on the side bar or "Join the Fun" in the header.  You will get Stampin' Up!'s Demonstrator Starter Kit for just $99!  For that price you get:

Post Easter

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We had a fabulous day, and all the hidden eggs were found eventually.  Our brunch was so good, we all ate ourselves into oblivion.

Tomorrow is good day to check in on my blog because the Stampin' Up "Weekly Deals" change. Woo Hoo!  The products on these weekly deals are discounted a good amount.  It is always a great idea to pick up extra items you may need for future projects.  As always, if you have questions about any of the Stampin' Up products, feel free to contact me by signing up for blog updates.  Even if you aren't a Stampin' Up customer or interested in Stampin' Up products, I encourage you to sign up for these updates.  Who knows, I might just have a tip or project that tickles your fancy!  Also, follow me on Facebook!

If I can clean up my work/craft room enough to move around, I am going to try and post a project by Thursday.  Easter eve I was making mini pots of bunnies and flowers, and getting my husbands Easter basket prepared.  Plus, making the famous "Bunny Butt" cake (shown below) and prepping the ham and turkey.  So, needless to say, my craft room is quite a sight!  Cleaning up is on the agenda tonight.

Thanks to all of my friends and family who have supported and encouraged this new endeavor of mine.

"Creating with Paper" is my first attempt at a "blog" so thanks in advance for your patience while I learn the ins and outs of blogging.

This is an exciting adventure for me.  Sharing the wonderful products, ideas and hints from Stampin' Up is my primary motivation. Stampin’ Up! provides a diverse line with 3 types of superior quality stamps and accessories.  I also want to expand my blog to include other projects and media that I have enjoyed learning. 

Today, to start off I want to share with you a fun technique that was featured on our cooperate blog.
