Organize your Ink Refills with Enamel Shapes!

 

Craft Room Organization Tip!

Organize your Stampin' UP! ink refills (re-inkers) by putting a Stampin' Up! Enamel Shape on the lid!

I organize mine in color families, and then place the Enamel Shape on the lid. This system makes it So easy to find the right color when I need to re-ink my pad!  I saw this idea online and I cannot fine the originator of this idea.. but if it was you, thank you and please comment so I can give you credit!

 

Organize your craft room!  Place Enamel Shapes on your Stampin' Up! In Refills to easily identify them!

 

I am going to try to do a better job in the coming year to remind you to always buy the ink refill when you buy the ink pad.  You will always have it on hand, and we all know that a freshly inked pad produces a much better stamped image, too!

I store mine in a 4 section drawer divider from the Container Store in my Elfa Cart drawer:

Bisley 4-Compartment Shallow Drawer Insert Black
  • SKU#: 668070

My "Million Dollar" Stampin' Up! Set - Ribbon of Courage

 

I am so excited to be able to finally share this wonderful new stamp set with you!!  Today I am sharing the Ribbon of Courage set that I designed with designer Kathy Pitt when I visited Stampin' Up! in Dec. 2015 for my Million Dollar Achiever trip!! (see more about that trip HERE).  If you are a demonstrator, you have access to the catalog already and can find it on page 96 of the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with the million dollar achiever symbol, and my name below the set.

 

Patty Bennett Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! stamp set - in honor of all cancer survivors - and for encouragement cards, fundraisers, and more! Available after 6/1/17.

 

This stamp set has a story, and I will be sharing it with you in more detail soon in a video.  I was honored to be asked to present the set and my samples at the Stampin' UP! San Diego OnStage event last weekend, but only had 8 minutes to share... and I truly wanted to share so much more with the audience, so I will redo my presentation with all the samples and share the extra backstory and more in my video.  Watch for it here soon on my blog!

For all of you expecting that I would have designed a flower set... the explanation of why it's not flowers will also be in my video. This set is dedicated to my mom and grandma who both fought the battle against breast cancer.  They are both angels in Heaven now, and I know they are smiling down on me and so happy and amazed at how my business has grown over the nearly 22 years I've been a demonstrator!

 

Patty Bennett Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! stamp set - in honor of all cancer survivors - and for encouragement cards, fundraisers, and more! Available after 6/1/17.

 

I wanted to share a few photos with you from our time at the Stampin' UP! OnStage event in San Diego! I hope you enjoy these!

Above:  my display board and the samples I presented during my demonstration. 

Below: me on stage during rehearsal .. I don't have any photos of me during the presentation.

If you would like to see more of these new stamp sets, I'd love to send you a new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog in May!  Please leave me a comment or click the contact me button in the left column if you do not have a demonstrator already and need a new catalog!

If you'd like to see this set and the entire new catalog early, Join My Team! You will have access to the entire catalog online immediately!

Below: THIS was an amazing experience.. at the end of the OnStage event, Stampin' Up! announced they were giving away the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to ALL ATTENDEES!!!!!  Oh my gosh.. everyone seemed SO excited!  Immediately a long line formed at our table and everyone asked me to sign their set!!  Never in a million years did I expect that.. it was thrilling and crazy all at the same time! I was honored, humbled and feel so blessed over the amazing reaction to my Ribbon of Courage set!!  So many demonstrators shared their cancer survivor stories with me that day.  I know this set will be a huge encouragement to so many people!!

And last but not least, I must share this special photo with you... My sister-in-law Tami (on the right) drove down to San Diego from Orange County just to see my presentation!  My brother was tied up with a tax appointment.. I missed him, but it was GREAT to have Tami there!   This photo of my upline, Sandy, with Tami and I is very special, because it was Tami who attended a Stampin' UP! party hosted by Sandy about 25 years ago, then mailed me the Stampin' Up! catalog and said, "you might be interested in this!"  :)   OH MY>>> that was the start of a 25 year relationship with Sandy and Stampin' Up!  I was a customer for about 3 years before joining as a demonstrator in 1995!!  Thank goodness Sandy had her contact info on the back of the catalog!!!

Hope you enjoyed that little (ok long) story with the sneak peek of the Ribbon of Courage set!!  I promise to share all the samples and a video very soon!!!

Copper Paper Detailed Dragonfly Card Idea

 

I hope you enjoy these Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly & Copper Foil paper cards as much as I enjoyed making them!!  I just mailed about 25 of these last week to customers.  I love how they turned out!!  I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed "Affectionately Yours" paper for about 10 months.. I finally decided I needed to use it!

 

Detailed Dragonfly Stampin' Up! card featuring "Affectionately Yours" paper, copper foil paper and Mint Macaron cardstsock and ribbon. by Patty Bennett

 

And you may be thinking... wait, Copper Foil Paper?  Where is that? Well, it's one of the products carried over from the Holiday 2016 catalog... SEE ALL the Carry Over Products HERE!

 

I used the Detailed Dragonfly framelits from the Occasions catalog, and the Affectionately Yours paper from the annual catalog.  You can see all of these products at the bottom of this blog post.. just click on any product photo to order it right from my online store!

 

Stampin' Up! "Affectionately Yours" paper, copper foil paper Detailed Dragonflies.

 

 Paper Hoarding?  Well, yes, I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed sheets from the Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours paper pack and decided I need to use them!!

 

TIP!  put a small strip of the Foam Adhesive strip behind the body of the dragonfly to raise it up off the card!

 

Detailed Dragonfly Stampin' Up! card featuring "Affectionately Yours" paper, copper foil paper and Mint Macaron cardstsock and ribbon. by Patty Bennett

 

Just a Note is stamped in Night of Navy on an oval Stitched Shape framelit die cut.   Just a Note is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, pg 49 of the annual catalog.

You might have noticed I used the soon to be retired Mint Macaron cardstock and ribbon.  Why does it always take me nearly 2 years to warm up to some In Colors?  Now all of a sudden I love Mint Macaron!  eeek!

I am super happy with these cards.. I think they are a great balance of bright and cheery and also classy and elegant.  The Copper Foil Paper just makes them sing!!

Celebrating my Title Promotion to Platinum with Stampin' UP!

 

Many of you know I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 1995... almost 22 years!!  (We'll be celebrating that in June!).  During that time, I have seen many changes within the company; new policies, new compensation plans, new career plans.. and with the most recent change in Oct. 2015, the company has new titles for demonstrators based on sales, recruiting and downline titles: Bronze, Bronze Elite, Silver, Silver Elite, Gold, Gold Elite, Platinum and Platinum Elite. 

I'm excited to say that I recently promoted to Platinum!! 

In honor of that accomplishment, my sweet friend Cindee sent me this gorgeous card, gift and a gift card to BRIGHTON!! :)

 

Detailed Dragonfly congratulations card with Falling Petals embossing folder, vellum and silver foil paper from Stampin' UP!. Gift from Cindee.

 

This card is just stunning and I'm so thankful to have such a sweet friend! 

Cindee used the Falling Petals embossing folder on Whisper White cardstock, then cut out the Dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits in Silver foil paper and vellum, and layered them together.  She also embellished the card with Silver Metallic Thread, Organza Ribbon and Silver Sequins.  Oh, AND lots of pearls!  It's truly a masterpiece!

In addition to the gorgeous card, she sent me a gorgeous hanging ornament created with Lace Doilies!!  You can see her blog post with instructions HERE.

Stampin' UP! Retiring List - My Advice

 

The Stampin' Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and 2017 Occasions catalog Retiring Lists will be published on Monday, April 10 at 1pm MT.

(noon Pacific time, 2pm Central time, and 3pm Eastern time)

 

My BEST Retiring List Advice:

If there is something you've had your eye on, and you can't live without it, Order it NOW or order right away when you see the published list!

I have disappointed customers every year who didn't get what they wanted because it sold out quickly or they waited several days to place their order.

Don't let that happen to you!

 

I especially would not wait on ordering retiring 2015-2017 In Color Products... here they are for your convenience!

Happy Spring - Backyard Flower Update

 

Thank you so much for your kind comments when I post my garden photos to Instagram and Facebook.  I am thrilled that you enjoy seeing updates as my garden blooms each year!  We had a ton of rain here in the San Francisco Bay Area this winter and then a mild spring so I think my plants are happy!  My roses are all set to burst out with blooms very soon (ONE rose has bloomed!) and my Alstromeria, Wisteria and other bulbs are blooming!

 

Garden 2017 wisteria plant vine trellis flowers pattystamps

 

Above and Below.. our Wisteria always blooms in late March.. always for our son's birthday!

I also have Alstromeria (in the lily family) in several colors.. these are my favorite flower next to a rose.  They last 2 weeks easily in a vase and come in lots of pretty colors.   I won't mention the fact that I fell a couple weeks ago right into my biggest Alstromeria plant and might have damaged some of the stalks... :(  sadness.

Below: this is a huge 6' tall bush in full bloom .. I believe it's called Witches Broom  It's one of the only remaining plants that was here in the garden when we moved in almost 20 years ago.  I've replaced almost everything else.

Thank you to Luzi who commented.. they are freesia :)

More Celebrations Duo embossing folder cards

 

Thank you for your kind comments about my Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder video (here)!

I showed you these 2 birthday / celebration cards in that video, and wanted to give you more details so you can make them using the embossing folders and the Candle Border Punch!

 

Happy celebrations duo embossing folder birthday card ideas from Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! Supplies

 

On the candle card (above left) I created a fun border with the new Candle Border Punch (2017 Occasions catalog, pg 7, or HERE in my online store).  I also used the Birthday Bright set.

For the card on the right, I used a greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

I used the punch to punch a scrap strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and then layered it over another scrap that I had added 4 strips of Washi Tape to!  Creates such a fun colorful candle border!!

 

Candle border punch from Stampin' Up! with washi tape accent

I simply embossed the word HAPPY on a 2"x4" piece of whisper white cardstock  and then stamped "birthday to you" from the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The stars are enamel shapes from the Brights and Regals packages.  Everything is layered onto patterned candle paper from the Party Animal package (pg 5 in the Occasions catalog, #142738).

6x6 Paper Stack Storage Tip

 

Craft Room Storage tip for 6x6 paper!

Why didn't I try this years ago??  Wow!! This is such a great way to store my 6x6 Stampin' Up! Paper Stacks!!

I am using a lovely wood storage box from Stamp-n-Storage and dividers I made myself to organize my paper stacks!  This works great for any paper 6x6 or smaller!

See below for ordering info!

I love that I can now see at a glance if I am running low on one of the paper stacks, and I can also keep all my loose pieces all together in the same spot instead of having them fall out all over! :)
