Introducing Monthly Craft Kits

Hello fellow crafters,

I am beyond thrilled, and eager, to reveal my new monthly craft kits!! Basically they are kits that contain Stampin' Up! products, like a share but in a kit, that I have put together. Each month the kit will contain, cardstock, DSP, accessories, punch outs, die cuts, and an instructional sheet to create 4 projects. The kits will center around a stamp set/punch/dies that I use to create the projects, and using the supplies you receive in the kit.

There will be enough to create each of the projects with plenty left over.  You may choose to create the projects or come up with your own ideas.

Give credit where it's due!!  I have been wanting to create something similar to this monthly kit for a while now.  But couldn’t really come up with an idea, on how to share the love of Stampin’ Up! with others that was at a great price point. I tried classes to go, which included items that made the class expensive for some.  Last week, I happened upon a YouTube video about a monthly kit from, Positively Papercraft, a SU! demonstrator, in the U.K.

I instantly fell in love with the idea, and decided to reach out to Ann. I wanted permission to "case" the idea, while giving her the credit. She graciously agreed to allow me to case her idea, to offer here in the states. We have even talked about collaborating in the future, which excites me as well.

As promised in my video, here is a link to her website.  Please visit Ann's website and YouTube channel, she creates amazing projects.

OK, let me give you some more information on my new Monthly Kits!!!


My first monthly kit will be for July 2018!!  I centered my kit around the new Animal Expedition suite. The kits will not include any stamp sets, die sets, punches or ink pads. However, you are more than welcome to purchase any of the stamp sets, die sets or punches I use at my online store.


The price for this kit is $25 and that includes shipping. You can reserve your monthly kit by clicking on the reservation button below. You have until the last day of the month to reserve, and then I will send an invoice through PayPal.  You kit will be shipped during the second week of August, once I have received the order from SU! and packaged for shipment.  It will come securely packaged either in a 12x12 pizza box, or bubble mailer.  This depends on shipping costs, as I want to keep as low as possible.

RESERVE YOUR KIT NOW!! Deadline to reserve and pay – July 31, 2018

3rd Make N Take from BINGO

This is the third make-n-take, I created for my BINGO attendees.  This card was slightly simpler than the last two, I think.

You can read all about the BINGO party I held for the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog launch here.

You know I keep saying this, but we really did have an awesome time, especially the online attendees.  Please join us for the Holiday launch in September.  Details to come in July!!!

Back to the card, which would be great for any occasion.  I thought of retirement, engagement, and even birthday.

I love love love the color combo on this card.  Can you tell I love it?!?! Stampin' Up! hit it out of the ball park with the color refresh this year.

And don't be afraid to intermix dies with other stamps sets.  I thought the Medallion die cut matched the stamp from Botanical Bliss.

Onto the card details....here are the measurements, products used listed below:



Whisper White Cardstock – 4 1/4 x 11, then scored at 5 1/2 & 4 x 5 1/4 plus scrap
Coastal Cabana Cardstock – 4 1/8 x 5 3/8  plus scrap
Lovely Lipstick – scrap for diecut

And as promised to my BINGO crew, here is the video tutorial....


I would love to see your creations, you can post them over at Ladybug Stampin Spot.  I like to see any type of crafting in general.  I love to DIY home decor and Christmas presents.

I love the Share What You Love DSP (Designer Series Paper), I am not sure you can tell, but some of the leaves have a pearl shine to them.  Did you know that Pearls are the gift you give for a 30th anniversary.  And guess what?!?! Stampin' Up! turns 30 this year!!  What a great company I get to create with.
