This tip was shared by a very smart demonstrator, Debbie Moczek about cutting ribbon!
Here’s what she said: “I took a box and cut it into different size strips starting at 2” all the way up to 12”. When I am planning for a class or stamp-a-stack it makes things so much faster. I made the strips 2” wide too so the ribbon stays on well. You can cut about 25 at a time which means 50 pieces of the length you need. FAST AND EASY—–and boy what a time saver.”
What a great tip for saving time, I love it!
Happy Stamping, Josee

To achieve the 2 colours on the butterfly, I used the “Rock ‘n Roll” technique.
First, you ink the stamp in the lighter colour, then ink the edges of the stamp on a darker colour rocking it around so you are only touching the edges! I love this technique, so fun and simple!
Of course, the butterfly was also calling out for glitter!
Happy Stamping! Josee

This beautiful card was created by one of my downline, Tracie St. Louis. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it, and know you all will too. It’s using the Love & Joy Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Collection Catalogue.
The part I love the most about the card is how she used some of the Holiday Mini Designer Wrapping Paper as a layer. Not only is this paper absolutely GORGEOUS, it can be used on so many different projects other than wrapping gifts!!!! And, and, and…..to top it off….the Satin Ribbon featured on page 22 of the Mini is made to match; how great is that?!
