Paper Craft Crew 61

Posted on

Weather, yes it was like summer here today! I was thoroughly enjoying it, especially on the way home from work with the top down and the radio turned up! I’m not looking forward to the winter, no more topless car. Although I have been known to put the top down and the heat on! LOL! So yesterday Stampin’ Up! released a load of new promotions to help celebrate their 25th anniversary and there is something for everyone! First there is a Host(ess) Promotion. Have a party and sales of $250 and get $25 extra in Host(ess) dollars!

How would you like an easy way to keep track of My Digital Studio downloads? Quickly browse new downloads every week? Link to the Online Store to shop for more? And have it all right at your fingertips? Feel free to jump and shout because this is one library where you don’t have to be quiet-it’s the My Library for My Digital Studio app-now available for your iPad.

With the app you can

  • Add items you already own to your collection.
  • Add items you want to your wish list.
  • Sort your lists alphabetically or by release date.
  • Search for any downloads.
  • Browse new downloads released every week.
  • Link to the Stampin’ Up! Online Store to shop.

Download it now for FREE in iTunes or the App Store and you’ll be the most awesome librarian around. Happy cataloging.

Here are some other things to note:

  • The app will not link to your software; therefore, manually add items you already own to your collection. Think of it as a sentimental journey-you can reminisce while you categorize.
  • For the best viewing experience, we recommend using the app on an iPad or iPad Mini.  It’s not quite ready for iPhones yet, but we will let you know when it is.
  • While the app is only available for iPad devices right now, we promise that we have not forgotten about the iPhone and Android devices. We know there are a lot of you out there. It just takes a bit longer to make the app work for various platforms. We will let you know when you can download it too.


The 1st of the month also means it’s time for this month’s Best of 25 Set and we have the Best of Christmas for October! There are three great images from previous sets and one new image that coordinates with the Christmas Ornament Punch. You can see the flyer below or click here to download a PDF.


That is a lot going on for this month! Now on to today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Craft Crew. We have an interesting sketch for you this week…

PCCCS061 10-02-2013

I will definitely admit that when I first saw the sketch I was a little unsure of what I was going to do. Eventually I finally settled on a vintagey card! The base of today’s card is Pear Pizzaz Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper Pack. The two flags are Basic Gray and Coastal Cabana. For the main stamped image I used the Tea Party Stamp Set. I stamped the large image in Crushed Curry and Wisteria Wonder and cut them both out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. The Wisteria one is then trimmed with my Paper Snips. The collection of teapot and cups is from the same set and I markered it with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker and then cut that out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them all to the card. The little tags are punched out with the “Vintage” Jewelry Tag Punch and the friends is from the “Vintage” Tiny Tags Stamp Set. To adhere them and the button I used some Multi-Purpose Glue. I really like the mix of all of the colors in the Afternoon Picnic DSP and I have to admit that markering and fussy cutting the teapot and cups was fun! Issues, I know! LOL! Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch challenge.
