Hello there! With Memorial Day around the corner, I thought that I would make a Memorial Day card for you. It's a long video of 40 minutes, but we do an awful lot to this card. You wouldn't believe how much I edited out…like an hour. We have a lot of coloring going on with markers, watercoloring, heat embossing, die-cutting, sequin placement, and I'm sure a few others things. It was all worth it. I think the card turned out nice. It's definitely unique and one-of-a-kind. I'm sure that anybody in the military would love to receive it. I feel bad as during the video, I kept referring to the military as only having men, when there are so many women serving as well, and they will like the sequins! 

I hope that you enjoy today's card and video. Don't forget to make a Memorial Day card and give it to a soldier or the parents of a soldier to thank them for their sacrifice to our great country. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today and God bless!

Hello there my friends and welcome to another Paper Craft Crew Mid-Week Inspiration!

We're organizing (and some other fun stuff) over the next few weeks to put away all of the great new Stampin' Up! products from the 2016-2017 Idea Book & Catalog that you will be able to purchase from on June 1! 

Today, I was starting off on a copper graduation card and went through a several copper mediums that you can use on projects then went onto showing you how to store your 6 x 6 paper scraps. That's when I decided to make the graduation card I had in mind into a separate video and it's less than 10 minutes too! It's so easy to store all of your scraps in the Stampin' Up! 6 x 8 cellophane bags, Item 102210. They are a staple for every craft room! Be sure to get yours today while you organize and re-organize your paper scraps with your new designer series paper, 6 x 6 paper packs and your new In Color 8-1/2 x 11 card stock!

102210G

6" X 8" Cellophane Bags Order Item Number 102210
Price: $5.00 for 50 bags making them 10 cents each that are of excellent quality and sturdy. There are so many amazing uses for these bags and they hold a lot too!
 

Use these bags for treat or gift bags. Just pop the treat or gift into one of our shiny cellophane bags and add a stamped header. These bags are also great for storing finished projects, parts for future projects, or any other odds and ends.

* 50 flat bags
* 6” x 8”
* Stamps with StazOn Ink
