Patriotic-themed Blog Hop

Hello friends!
I hope you are enjoying hopping around the world with our Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring projects that are patriotic to the country the demonstrator lives in. You may have arrived from Karie Beglau's blog. What a wonderful project!
My project will dress up any 4th of July picnic table. This is super easy project that can be pulled together quickly and will add some pizzazz to your dish!

For the red and blue I used new in-colors cardstock in Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick; silver glimmer paper adds the jazzy "white".

I used the large letter dies to cut the USA letters from the Lovely Lipstick cardstock and the Triple Banner punch to cut banner pieces. TIP: I punched 6 banners so I could cover the backsides of my banners; you could also decorate the backs and use them in a centerpiece dish.

use foam adhesive strips to quickly stick to the letters to the glimmer paper

What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Blueberry Bushel cardstock (cs), 6 - 2 x 4"
Silver glimmer paper, 3 - 1.75 x 3"
Lovely Lipstick cs, 2.5 x 4"
Large Letters framelits
Triple Banner punch
foam adhesive
wooden skewers (bought at the dollar store; cut mine to 6.5")

Thanks for hopping with us. Now click on the next image to zoom to Elizabeth Green's blog to see the next fabulous project.

New Catalog Open House

Hello friends!

The new Stampin Up annual catalog launched on June 1st! To celebrate I'm holding an New Catalog Open House on Saturday, June 9th, 1pm-4pm, at my house. Stop by to pick up your copy of the new catalog and make a few make 'n takes featuring some of the fabulous new items. You and your BFFare invited to this free event. You're going to love the new catalog! RSVPs appreciated (but not mandatory!), bring your favorite adhesive (also not mandatory 😊).

As in past years, I will offer a product share of papers and accessories from the new catalog; stay tuned, details coming soon!

Color Revamp
Some colors are retiring, a few favorites are returning, some new colors are joining the family....click here to see the details.

New & Improved Ink Pads and Ink
  • The new ink cases are less confusing to open. Opening the new ink pad case is now easier and more intuitive—they open like a compact, just lift the lid to open. The cases have a tighter fit between the lid and the base. With the new design, the lid doesn’t accidentally become disconnected which was a common problem with the old case style. At first the new cases are tight, with use the lid will be easier to slide open and close. 
  • They're stackable! The ability to stack the cases makes them easier to store and transport. SU designed a nub in each bottom corner that fits nicely into the “dimple” on the top of another new case. 
  • Include improved labels and stickers. The case redesign includes a front label with a larger color swatch, making it easier to see the ink’s color. Each case continues to comes with color stickers that you can place on the end of each case to easily identify the ink’s color at a glance. Plus, cases now come with a new color sticker you can place on the inside of the pad, so you can easily distinguish the ink’s color when the case is open. I love this feature!
  • Improved ink! SU added defoamer to the ink ingredients because ink would sometimes bubble (especially on new pads and with lighter colors). When this happened, the ink wasn’t as even and smooth when stamped as SU would like.
