I created a new 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial to give you a close up preview of the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper as well as show you how easy it is to dress up a coordinating envelope flap!


  • Yummy patterned paper and a sentiment with an uber cool font are a win win combination for a simple & pretty card!

  • Going, going, ALMOST GONE!   The “just because” sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set is accented with a Night of Navy Candy Dot (Regals Candy Dots).  Both the stamp set and dots (all color collections of dots) are retiring and part of the Stampin’ Up! Retiring Product List & Sale (up to 50% off).
