Mermaid and Markers

Mermaids :) How fun!




The Stampin' Write Markers are another wonderful item that Stampin' Up! offers. One of the reasons that they are so wonderful is because they coordinate with all the papers and ink. 

It is a really beautiful thing to be able to write in the inside of one of your handmade cards with a matching color pen. It just ties everything together so nicely. 


Use hostess code GDUJSHYD October 1-15 when you click Shop over at www.nicern1.stampinup.net
so that you can get my additional October freebies. 
What are the freebies????

Hoping you find some time to relax and craft :)

Stamping more than cards

It's so fun to stamp :) 

Even more fun to find new ways to use your stamps. Knowing that I can use my stamps for all sorts of things makes them worth the cost. 


The stamped candles are super fun to make and much easier than you would think. Then put into a clear bag and wrapped with ribbon. A quick and simple but thoughtfully done gift. :)  



Another fun thing to do with stamp sets and paper is to make some nice home decor. 
I used stamps, designer series paper and some ribbon to put this cute little wall hanging together. 


A simple frame from the local craft store, then I went to work on it :) A very personalized gift for my daughter's friend. 

Things like this would make great Christmas gifts. Again what makes it so wonderful is to be able to match the designer series background paper with other things like ribbon and ink colors. 

What other things have you made with your stamps? 


Between October 1-15 use Hostess Code GDUJSHYD at

to get my additional freebies. 

Also right now...Stampin' Up! has a sale for select designer series paper.

Scrapbook and Make a Calendar

Stampin' Up! is not just about making cards. 
Don't forget you can also scrapbook. 

Stampin' Up! has this amazing way of making scrapbooking easier because all the colors, embellishments, and designer series paper matches. 

I used to spend hours in the craft aisles trying to get things to match. Stampin' Up! has taken that guess work out and made life much easier. 

Take a look at these scrapbook like pages that I made last year for a 2017 Calendar for my mom. I will be doing the same thing again this year. 





Make sure you are using your stamps for as many things as possible :) It will make you feel better about purchasing them.
