Jar of Love Fireflies Tutorial

It's the end to another great week here in the Studio.  I've been playing with new Holiday Catalog products - and thoroughly enjoying myself!  There's something about new "toys", isn't there?  ((smile))

The Holiday Catalog will debut on September 1st. If you are an existing customer of mine you will receive yours in the mail within the next week.  If you don't receive it by September 1st, please contact me.  

Many of you aren't thinking about the holidays just yet.  Some of you have kids that have just gone back to school and you're settling into a new routine.   Rest assured, the months will fly by.  

BUT, as I prepare, I realize that many of you aren't so today's project tutorial features a beloved summertime critter - the firefly.  

As a kid growing up in Illinois we used to try and catch them. When we did, we cupped them between our hands and look inside for the "light show"!  God's design is wonderful isn't it - a harmless bug that lights up!

Quick Crafting Tip - Framelit "Fitting" Storage Solution

I love to fussy cut.

I know, you think I'm crazy, right?  

What I don't love is fussy cutting dozens of images when I'm mass producing cards for a swap, invitations for a wedding (like the ones I'm working on now for my nephew) or even my Christmas cards.  

This is where my love of framelits and thinlits comes in! No fussy cutting required. 

But, as much as I love them there's one thing that has made me crazy - and I'm betting it makes you crazy too!

  • Have you wrestled with getting the dies neatly back into their plastic storage envelope?
  • Have you wondered if you've missed one when putting them away?  
  • Have you found they just don't "fit" right when you try to adhere them to the paper sleeve they come with?

PROBLEM SOLVED!   Today's quick tip video has the answer.

Paper Pumpkin with Boo - August 2016

 Boo came up with adorable alternate projects for this month's Paper Pumpkin kit and she's excited to share them with you.

What she wasn't excited about was doing her "opening" to the video.  

We've included bloopers at the end of today's Paper Pumpkin with Boo video that we think will have you giggling like we did.  Ohhhhh, real life can be hilarious, can't it?  It took us 12 minutes to get the opening for today's video right and you're going to see why!

As always, I've included pictures of her projects, along with cutting dimensions, following the video in this post.  Be sure to scroll down to see them along with the additional supplies she used to create these projects.

It's "facelift" time for Studio Stamps in the Mail (SSITM).  I've made GREAT changes effective August 28th when September's registration begins!

Under Constructio girl with barracde

You've asked, I've answered! 

  • Stamp sets, punches, framelits and other products will be INCLUDED in the SAME packaging with your pre-cut supplies (yeah!)
  • A video tutorial will be included with every SSITM purchase!  I will walk you through the steps of creating the cards
  • PDF tutorial layouts have gotten a facelift, too.  Cutting dimensions are now separated out from the step-by-step instructions makes it easier for you to recreate the projects again and again.  Lots of you said you prefer to cut all your cardstock before you begin stamping.  Gotcha' covered!
  • Shortened deadlines now mean you will receive your SSITM inclusive kit faster!  There's a very short sign up period September's registration dates will be August 28 - September 5th.  I will communicate the deadline via my email newsletter, my blog and my business Facebook page.   If you aren't on my email list you can click HERE and sign up. My free email newsletter includes an additional free tutorial, too! 

AND, every SSITM order will be included in my exclusive Live with Lisa events - details HERE!

If you're interested in just the PDF tutorial I will have it available in my PDF Library when registration begins.  

I can't wait to stamp with you from home!
