The Get & Go Starter Kit Promotion is ending! Today, September 30, is the last day to take advantage of the Get & Go Starter Kit Promotion.  If you register online to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator before 11:50 PM (MT), you will receive additional products with your Starter Kit. In addition to the regular starter kit (for $99 you choose $125 USD worth of products), you will also receive enough cardstock pieces to make 16 cards, a pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the So Much Love stamp set, and the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set.

Maximizing Your Designer Series Paper

Earlier this week on a Facebook Live, I highlighted maximizing your Designer Series Paper.  Twelve cards can be made from one 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  The only scrap for the trash left after making the cuts is a 1/2″ x 1-1/2″ inch piece.  The Designer Series Paper in the sample cards is Painted Seasons.  This Designer Series Paper is a FREE Sale-a-Bration selection and is only available until March 31 (just a few more days!).  The twelve cards and cutting guide are shown below.   

Cutting Guide:

Tips for cutting:

  1. Use the photo as your guide and cut the vertical lines first. In the photo, the pink arrows designate the vertical cut lines. 
  2. Cut the first vertical line at a width of 4″.
  3. The next vertical cut is 3″ in width.
  4. The final vertical cut is 3-1/2″ in width. 
  5. After completing these cuts, you will have a 4″ x 12″ strip, a 3″ x 12″ strip, a 3-1/2″ x 12″ strip and a 1-1/2″ x 12″ strip.
  6. Refer to the photo and cut the strips to the appropriate sizes for the cards.
