Stampin’ Up! Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper is headed for retirement and is only available while supplies last!  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the recent release of the Stampin’ Up!

Today’s Mojo Monday Tall & Skinny Sketch Challenge (MOJO395) is a BIG 7″ x 4″ card!


  • I used three different patterns from Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper (including the envelope liner).  All the color and pattern coordination is done for me!

  • Bold and modern!  Also retiring is the “congrats” sentiment from Says It All stamp set. See all Says It All stamp images in my supplies recipe below.
  • Strawberry Slush Cardstock and Strawberry Slush Thick Baker’s Twine give the geometric design a feminine twist–perfect for the member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals who promoted to Manager!  Well done, Peggy Noe!

  • A custom sized card needs a custom sized envelope.  It was a snap to create the perfect fit with the Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board and Whisper White 12 x 12 Cardstock.  Here’s my video on how to produce a quick liner using the Envelope Punch Board!

Chapstick Holders by Guest: Amy Whelan


Amy Whelan, today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community, created a trio of adorable chapstick holders, perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week (May 4  – 8).  I love how each chapstick gets it’s own personality from All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack (part of the Stampin’ Up! Retiring Products List)!

AMY’S TIP:  In the process of making the chapstick holder, Amy colored the ribbon using the Stampin’ Up!’s spritzer and ink refills.

Get Organized! Stamp-n-Storage Back Stories Video


Want some fantastic tips on how to keep your paper, stamps and ink neat and tidy?  My solution has been adding the quality storage and organizational products from Stamp-n-Storage to My Stampin’ Studio.  I love their products so much that I teamed up with owners Brett and Mary Haugen (along with owners of some pretty amazing paper crafting studios) to create a video loaded with ideas.

Here is the first full episode from Stamp-n-Storage called Back Stories.  It discusses where many of us began and how we ended up with our studios today.
