Pals Blog Hop: Families First

Welcome to the Pals April  2018 Blog Hop. Join us while we put “Families First” in our hop this month. The Stampin’ Pretty Pals will inspire you with family related projects like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation or Family Vacations. You may be just starting or hopped over from another Pal. In either case, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I don’t know about you, but if you use Stampin’ Up! products you already know that they color match everything for you.  You can get as fancy as you’d like and learn as you go along.  I prefer simple and this card be sent to a special momma after the birth of her baby girl.

Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 when we all “Step It Up with Textures or Techniques”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below.

Stamp Ink Paper: Love

14232041_10153815158103531_6990823276322308668_o

I’m in Love with anything creative and handmade and so is the rest of  the Stamp Ink Paper Design Team.  Today we made our cards to reflect anything about Love and my card is a birthday card to my great-uncle who will turn 69 in a couple of weeks.  Join us this week and show off some LOVE at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge blog.

Stamp Ink Paper

Sometimes I have no idea what my cards will come out when I’m not using a sketch.  So, I go at it blindly and so far, I’m always pleased with the outcome.  I’m a little jealous of card-makers who can whip out a card in an hour or less.  I totally admire their talent.  This one took me 2 days…oh my.  But, it’s the love I have for card-making that doesn’t matter how long or how little it may take.  Anything made with LOVE is totally worth it.

The Details:

  • Sunken Heart Cutout.  After adhering the Playfull Pallette DSP to Basic Black Cardstock, I used a heart from the Sweet & Sassy collection to cut out the heart.  I then doubled up the Stampin’ Dimensionals to add height to the cutout.  The heart with the 69 was adhered to the base first before the frame before the Stampin’ Dimensionals were applied (hope that made sense).  Doing so allowed me to center it perfectly on the base.
  • Tricky Hello Thinlits. There are endless types of glue one can use to apply very thin embellishments, but know that you don’t need to purchase tons of different types of glue.  Stampin’ Up! has the most strongest Fine-Tip glue pen that works extremely well.  No need to run it through another type that requires another gadget. I love it!!!

Personalized Baby’s Welcome

Baby Welcome

As a part of my home-based business, I branched out into the custom-made market after the urging of my BFF, Pam.  Although I initially resisted, I’m comforted in knowing that when I make such wonderful personalized cards my customer is elated.

Baby Welcome

The main requirement for this card was to incorporate the baby’s name into the sentiment.  Although Stampin’ Up! retired their My Digital Studio software for personal designing cards, I now use My Memories Suite, which is almost the same thing, but with a bit more functions.

Baby Welcome

What makes my custom orders different?  a) they’re affordableb) no minimum order require, and c)  if you don’t like it, you don’t buy it!  Basic card size is A2 (measures  4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) and start at $5 and up depending on embellishments.

June On-Line Orders.  Receive a sample (one of each) Expressions Natural Elements when you place an order via my on-line store and use Host Code: 7XAYE9K4

No Contact – What it really means.  When you select “No Contact” when you place your on-line order it literally means, “Don’t tell Maggie I placed an order.”  I will not be told who  you are and can’t send you the free product samples.  I would love for you to instead check-mark, “YES, allow my demonstrator to contact me with order updates and other important information.”  Please know that I will never send you junk mail. I want to show you how much I truly appreciate your business.

Pick ANY two stamps…ANY Price.  I welcome Hobby crafters/stampers who want to simply receive some great quality product at a discount or just want to take advantage of this month’s FREE stamp offer!  Click here to read the details.Blog Signature
