Episode 113 Carousel Birthday Shaker card

Hello my crafty peeps!
I love doing shaker cards! I saw a fellow demonstrator use the Sliding Stars framelits to make a shaker box and knew I had to start doing this. It's so awesome to have so many different types of creative people in our community who might see uses for products that you haven't. And like her, I feel that the Shooting Star bundle has not received as much love as it should.

Episode 112- Sale-a-bration Gift Tags

Hello my crafty peeps!
These are the last days of Sale-a-bration. I'm trying to use these great products as much as I can before they retire. Today I'm showing you ways to use Tasty Trucks, Hey Chick, and Avante Gareden to make quick gift tags. These are so easy to make that you can whip up a bunch to have on hand for any occasion or gift.

Episode 111- Hey Chick Window card

Hello my crafty peeps!
Only a few more days left for Sale-a-bration! You have until March 31st to place your orders and all SAB items are now while supplies last. I'm trying to get in as many projects as I can using these amazing products before I have to move them to my personal use stash. I saw a card using the Hey, Chick stamp set with this window technique and thought it was so cute. I can't remember where I saw it or who did it but whoever you are...thanks. I think I'll be doing this on future projects. I'm not completely happy with how the coloring turned out. I usually like to use blender pens with my markers to get more of a watercolor effect but I thought I'd try something new. I feel this card is fairly easy but it is a little time consuming. This is not something that can be mass produced easily unless you make a template for the die cutting. I love it anyway.

Episode 110- Don't Quit Your Daydream card featuring Sale-a-bration products

Hello my crafty peeps!
Sale-a-bration will only be going on for another 8 days. I'm going to miss showing you these wonderful products but I'm so glad I have them for my own personal use. Everything SAB is while supplies last. So if there was something you've been wanting, now's the time to get it! For every $50 you spend you get to pick an item from the SAB brochure.
Today's project is featuring the Delicate Details and Designer Tee stamp sets. The Designer Tee set does coordinate with the Custom Tee bundle found on page 30 of the Occasions catalog. But you don't have to have the bundle to create cute projects with this set. There's some sentiments that you don't see often, outside of a t-shirt that is. I've used them on a few cards for a graphic pop. And words can not express the utter gorgeousness of the Delicate Details set. It's lacy and elegant but there's also a few that are more fun and loopy.

Episode 109- Friendship card featuring Sale-a-bration 2017 products

Hello my crafty peeps!
Sale-a-bration is quickly coming to an end. March 31st is the last day. I've been so happy with all the SAB products that I got. Stampin' Up! did a fantastic job designing this promo. If you haven't gotten the products you wanted, now is the time. We're in the home stretch and items are while supplies last.
Today I'm featuring the Inside the Lines DSP. The DSP are 12x12 and comes with 12 sheets. There are 4 different designs and you get 3 sheets of each. It's great to use as is for a graphic black and white look, or you can use any of Stampin' Up!'s coloring tools. This set was made to coordinate with the Dragonfly Dreams bundle so if you have that set, or want to purchase it, the Inside the Lines DSP is a great choice. And Dragonfly Dreams is my March Stamp of the Month so if you place a minimum order of $35 (before taxes and shipping) in my online store and use host code ZQC3TQWY, I send you a free card kit to use with Dragonfly Dreams. March club will close on March 30th.
Are you ready to break out those watercolor pencils and color!

Episode 105- Peace, Love, Mickey Mouse series

Hello my crafty peeps and fellow Disney fanatics! I've started a new series that I'm very excited about. Since I'm selling Disney Vacations now I felt I needed to incorporate more Disney in my life. I love Disney and I'm so happy with my decision to help others book and plan their own magical Disney vacations. It can be so overwhelming and daunting. Trust me, I know. I've been there. Take advantage of my experience and knowledge to ease the burden so you can enjoy the experience and make wonderful memories. By the way, my services come at no additional cost to you!
Since I'm now incorporating Disney I've got to step outside the Stampin' Up! box...just a little. I'll still be using SU products but I need to get my Cricut involved for some of the Disney elements.

Episode 104- Inside the Lines card

Hello my crafty peeps! It's time for another tutorial. Just a few reminders before we begin.

  • Sale-a-bration ends March 31,2017
  • If you would like to become a SU demonstrator and join my team before March 31, you will be able to choose 2 additional stamp sets for your starter kit!
  • Most important: y'all ROCK!




Today's card feature the Inside the Line DSP from the Sale-a-bration brochure. It's some gorgeous paper that coordinates with some of the product suites from the Occasions catalog. I'm showing you the same ink blending technique as last week but I'm using colors from the subtles collection. It's a softer look but I think these colors are perfect for practicing your blending. The downside is that the softness of the colors don't show up well on camera. In person it's a nice wash of pastel rainbow color. If you want something more vibrant I would suggest using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and either Tempting Turquoise or Pacific Point from the brights collection.

March Stamp of the Month Club: Dragonfly Dreams!

Hello my crafty peeps!





It's time for the Stamp of the Month! I've chosen Dragonfly Dreams for March because I couldn't wait to start playing with this set. It's gorgeous and the coordinating framelits are just...wonderfully detailed and delicate. I can see so many ways to use this set. If you have a Big Shot, I highly recommend purchasing the bundle and save 10%! And since the bundle is $46.75 (before shipping and tax) you're only $3.25 away from the $50 needed to qualify for a free item from the Sale-a-bration brochure. Just a reminder that Sale-a-bration ends March 31 so get your qualifying orders placed before then.

So what do you need to do to get the free card kit from me? Place a minimum $35 (before taxes and shipping) order at my online store ecdesignsstudio.stampinup.net and use this month's hostess code ZQC3TQWY. If you're ordering $150 or more do not use the code so you can get your Stampin' Rewards. You will still receive the free card kit from me.

Episode 102- Ink blending with Stampin' Up! ink pads

Hello my crafty peeps!
I hope y'all are having a wonderful Saturday! I've got a pretty awesome technique for you today. Warning: Once you master this technique it is highly addicting. You will find yourself pulling out every color of Stampin' Up! ink you have and making these backgrounds. You will use every embossing folder in your possession. On the plus side, you're using your crafting goodies instead of having them sit on a shelf watching forlornly as you walk right by...
I have discovered that Stampin' Up! inks work in a similar manner to the infamous distress variety on the market. I love that I can do this kind of ink blending and have everything color coordinate. That's one of the things I love about SU. It all goes together and is the perfect shade match every time.
