Stampin' UP! Paper Snip Scissor Sharpener Tip

 

I have quite a collection of Stampin' Up! Paper Snips and (now retired) Craft/Ribbon Scissors.  And they ALL needed sharpening.  We found this "Work Sharp" brand Knife & Tool sharpener and it came highly recommended, so we bought one.  It is great!!  You don't need the special edition one, but that's what they had so we got it.  I'm thankful for my handyman hubby who took the time to sharpen all my scissors for me!!

 

Scissor Sharpening tip: Work Sharp knife sharpener is fabulous for my Stampin' Up! paper snips!

 

You may be wondering why I have so many pairs of paper snips and craft scissors ... at classes or other events I like to have a tool caddy with all the stamping and crafting essential tools, like Paper Snips, bone folders, paper piercer, Snail, Fast Fuse and Multipurpose Glue.  If you need any of these handy crafting supplies, you'll find product photos at the bottom of this blog post, linked to my online store.  Just click any photo to shop now!

I really wish Stampin' Up! still offered the Craft & Rubber Scissors as well as the Craft Scissors - perfect for cutting ribbon.. but they are retired now.  I still love mine!

Work Sharp brand sharpeners are available at Cabela's, on Amazon or at some hardware stores.

 

Scissor Sharpening tip: Work Sharp knife sharpener is fabulous for my Stampin' Up! paper snips!

 

Gotta love my super handy hubby.. and love my super sharp scissors!!! :)

What an interesting Week!

 

Let's just say this has been a really diverse and BUSY week... we are redoing some flooring and some furnishings in our home plus getting help with laying some bark in the back yard... It has meant visits to the flooring store, IKEA, Sugar City (concrete and landscaping materials), Home Depot, Best Buy and more!  It's been a crazy week, and not as much time to stamp as I'd like.. so I thought I'd just share some photos of some of the progress of the past week.

Bennett family downstairs carpet and IKEA furniture redo.

 

We also created a Jim Burns Watercolor Gallery Wall. By clearing out the dining room, we have a lovely wall of my dad's paintings now!  We have his artwork all over our home.. on every wall in fact, but this one was fun because the wall is large and we grouped several watercolors together.  Kind of an eclectic layout for me.. usually I have to have everything lined up and "matchy matchy" .. but I like this..

 

Jim burns watercolors gallery wall bennett home

 

Jim burns watercolors gallery wall bennett home 2

 

I'll have fun before and after photos plus all the finished results soon!!  But the new carpet is done!! yay!!  That's one step!!! :)

If you happen to live in the Contra Costa County (San Francisco Bay Area - East Bay) area, I highly recommend going to see Britton at the Pleasant Hill S & G Carpets & more store... wow.. GREAT service, polite, attention to detail, clean, quick... we are very pleased!!

Living room & Dining room carpet done by S & G Carpets and more in Pleasant Hill, CA
 

I've also been coordinating the landscapers in the back yard.  The weeds were about 2' tall with all the rain, so I needed those pulled and we put in bark and will add some potted plants in that portion of the backyard.

I'll be back tomorrow with more stamping fun!

How to make a Sunflower with the Eastern Palace bundle

 

I am sure you have seen all the fun ideas I've been sharing with you featuring the new Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Suite of products!! 

I think this Sunflower card is REALLY fun and I know you enjoyed it when you saw it on my video (here)!

 

Create a sunflower with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits and gold vinyl stickers!  by Patty Bennett

 

I created the sunflower with the Eastern Medallion thinlits and the layering circle framelits!

The leaves and the fun border at the bottom are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Flourish Thinlit dies #141478.

 

Check out my free tutorial below to see how you can create your own sunflower card!

 

Tutorial to Create a sunflower with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits and gold vinyl stickers!  by Patty Bennett

 

It only takes a few Eastern Medallion die cut pieces as you can see above, a little sponging and then layering them together!  I also added the gold foil sticker from the Eastern Gold Vinyl sticker pack and a gold Metallic Enamel circle shape in the center of the flower .. I think that gave it a fun pop of glitz!

The large part of the flower is die cut with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The center is die cut with Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso cardstock.

 

Have you purchased your  bundle yet?

Shop now! Click either bundle photo below for all the info and to shop in my online store.

Celebrating 1.3 million in personal sales - Blog Candy Giveaway

  Enter to win blog candy pattystamps

I recently met 2 big goals in my Stampin' Up! business, and wanted to celebrate by giving away some fun "blast from the past" Stampin' UP!

2. My other goal was to reach the title of Platinum Elite, and I achieved that in April - just a couple weeks ago!  It is the highest title a demonstrator can hold in the current Stampin' Up! career plan!

 

I feel very blessed, humbled, amazed and thankful for the many milestones I have achieved recently!!  Thank you to each of you who have had a part in making them all possible!

Since I reached TWO milestones, I have TWO identical gifts to give away!

I'll be selecting TWO winners on May 6th and posting them here on May 7th.

Each winner will receive a black printer tray and 7 seasonal inserts to cut and display in the tray! I created these using the (retired) Stampin' UP! program called My Digital Studio.  I used to sell these seasonal inserts back in 2012 and 2013.  My how fast time goes!

Each card is created on a folded thick whisper white folded card, and I added a 2" wide strip of Fresh Florals Designer Series paper and a 1/2" strip of solid In Color cardstock.  Above that I stamped the heart several times (from the Ribbon of Courage set) in the matching In Color, then added the punched greeting as described below:

 

I wanted to share the details about how I created the pretty tags.  I stamped the floral image from the Label me Pretty stamp set (new - coming June 1, 2017) and then stamped the Live every moment sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set (new - coming June 1, 2017) and then punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch (new - coming June 1, 2017).
