2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Gift Coupon Folder

2021-Stampin-Up-Christmas-gift-coupon-folder-1Today's project is a 2021 Stampin' Up! Christmas Gift Coupon Folder that made its first appearance on my YouTube premiere this evening. This idea came to me when thinking of Lyla and Mia, two of our grands, and how much they appreciate experiences and special "Honey and Papa" time. 

Since I did not have the Penguin bundle and it's not available for order, I thought that this designer paper that was earned for FREE as a Sale-A-Bration item would be perfect for this project.

Watch the video then make a list of all your young and young at heart family and friends that would appreciate this little gift!

Product List

Here are a few ideas that I've thought of for my coupon folder:

  • Good for one Milk Shake from Dairy Queen with Honey and Papa.
  • Good for one trip to the movies.
  • Special Movie night at home with popcorn.
  • "Dance party" in the living room with Honey.
  • Special craft session with Honey with Stampin' Up! paper and markers.

Simple Spotlighting Technique for Card Making

Simple-spotlighting-cardmaking-technique

Here's a sweet project with a simple spotlighting technique for card making.  This card and video have been ready to share for quite some time and the linen thread is no longer available.  I'll share an alternative during the video.

About the technique...

There is a spotlighting technique that is a little more "detailed" but this method is really easy and I think you will enjoy it for your cards.  Here's a close-up look...

Simple-spotlighting-cardmaking-technique-2Let's take a look at the video tutorial so you can try it!

Alcohol Marker and Vellum Technique for Cardmaking

Sept-16This week's YouTube Premiere featured an alcohol marker and vellum technique for cardmaking.  This is a really fun technique and you may find yourself doing it over and over.  There will be a supply list below but it's important that you have 99.9% Isopropol Alcohol.  This link takes you to the brand that I purchased from Amazon.

Alcohol-vellum-technique-stampin-up-1There's just a touch of this technique on the card above.  Can you spot it?

The second card was a remake of an anniversary card that I made for Jackie.  You will see the comparison in the video.
