I have a confession to make. I love visiting the hardware store. The DIY displays and outdoor plants and patio departments are nice, but what I really like is the lumber department. I love to walk down the aisles and just smell the fresh, clean scent of sawdust, all the while thinking of and planning all of the great home improvements the Hubs can do.
When I saw that there is a whole stack of Wood Textures designer series paper this year, I was over the moon. I knew they'd figure prominently in my Fixer Upper class series.
Announcing...Part of my Fixer Upper Series: Wood Textures
The 2nd in our series of summer Summer Fixer Upper Classes features the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. We'll make 6 cards, 2 each of 3 designs. In addition, we'll 2 "Wood" Crates, each holding 3 note cards with coordinating envelopes.
This Class is $35 and includes your own set of brand new Stampin' Up! products. Classmust be prepaid by the 15th of the month.
The July Class (Wednesday, June 26th) will not only showcase the amazing life-like Wood Textures inspired designer series paper, but also the Wood Words Bundle, Lovely Friends Stamp Set and At home with You Bundle.
There are three ways to get this class:
My team sketch challenge this week isn't a sketch at all, but a color challenge! I thought I'd shake things up and show a little patriotism by having everyone make cards in traditional red, white, and blue.
I had originally wanted to use this great red and white star-patterned paper from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper, but once I cut it, I realized it was Cherry Cobbler and not Real Red! Back to the drawing board. So, I grabbed my ink pads and Wood Words Stamp Set and went about making my own designer series paper! Add a quick Happy Birthday Thinlit, cut it 3 different colors, and you have a quick and festive birthday card.

It's gloomy and rainy out today . But no amount of clouds could darken your day if you received such a sunny birthday card. I know I shared a daisy card with you yesterday, but I just had to share this one, too because I have great news. The Daisy Punch is back in Stock! I know many of of you have been waiting to order yours, and now you can.
This card may look complicated with all of its color gradients, but it's super simple. This is a swap card I received from Bonnie Alexander and she used the Crushed Curry paint chip paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack. I love the versatility of this paper stack and I have a feeling I'm going to be using it all year long. Combined with the Happy Birthday Thinlet and you've got a card that comes together super quick! And did you notice? There's no stamping on this card! What will they think of next?
This card uses very simple, basic layers, that are reduced by 1/4" with each layer.
Base: Crushed Curry, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Layer 1: Whisper White, 5 1/4" x 4"

I had to share this delightful card I received in a swap from fellow demonstrator, Debbie Mason. earlier this month? Isn't it just cheerful? And the little pop of Daffodil Delight mixed with the classic Night of Navy and Whisper White duo are sure to bring a smile to even the most downhearted.
The Daisy Delight Bundle is by far the most popular with all my friends and stampers this summer. Everyone comments that this is their #1 favorite in the whole catalog.

What are you celebrating today? Is it a birthday? An anniversary? A new job? A new baby? An upcoming vacation? Or simply that it's Thursday and not Monday? Whatever the reason, do it with joy and spring in your step, just like this happy little fox from the Birthday Memories Suite. Reminiscent ofRichard Scarry's Busytown Books, or the animated characters from Disney, these happy, lighthearted woodland animals will bring a smile to anyone's face, no matter what the occasion.
And can you believe there is very little stamping on this card? The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and coordinating Birthday Friends Framelits make for quick work with this lively suite. All I had to do was run the paper through theBig Shot and stamp the sentiment on the banner. That's it! Seriously cute and amazingly quick..

***Michelle's tip: A little bit of ink goes a long way! You don't need to saturate your sponge. Simply tap it a few times in the ink pad, and use a gentle "flicking" or brushing motion against the edge of the paper, to give it a nice, defined outline.
