Good Morning Everyone! Today's Tuesday Tool is the Stampin' Up! Grid Paper. I use this at all of my workshops and classes. This over sized pad of paper protects your stamping work surface. It also serves as scratch paper and makes cleaning up a breeze. Another feature of the Grid paper is a box for your wish list and a box with basic card dimensions. The Stampin' Up! Grid Paper is a wonderful addition to your paper craft tool chest!
Features & Benefits
- 11" x 17"
- 100 sheets
- Printed with Stampin’ Up! logo and 1/4" grid
This paper is perfect for protecting your work area and for practicing when you’re stamping. For a plain work surface, use the back of the grid paper.
If you struggle with lining up and spacing your titles, stamp them on the grid paper first, following the grid lines. Then place the grid paper over your project but below where you want your title. Line up the stamps following the same grid lines you used to stamp your title on the grid paper.

Make It Monday - Stampin' Up! Festive Flower Punch Christmas Card (A Holiday Catalog 2015 Sneak Peek!)
Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! My Make It Monday share is a Christmas Card created with the New Stampin' Up! Reason For the Season stamp set and Stampin' Up! Festive Flower Builder Punch. Making Poinsettia Flowers has never been easier! You simply punch the petals from card stock or Designer Series Paper and layer to form each flower. Additionally, you can add details by stamping leaf lines on the petals. These lines are included the stamp set. I kept mine simple by just using card stock. Then I embossed the card background with the New Boughs & Berries Textured Embossing Folder on the background. It really makes the Poinsettia stand out. Finally, I added my sentiment and everything came together to form a beautiful Christmas Card! Don't forget the Holiday Catalog goes live on Tuesday, September 1, 2015!

Good Morning Everyone! My Try It Thursday share is an Oval Pop Out Swing Card created with the Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers stamp set. One of the flower images matches the Stampin' Up! Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack; so I thought it was perfect on the background. To get the Swing Out portion of the card, I used the Stampin' Up! Oval Framelits to die cut an open window and form my card focal point. I then attached this focal point to Very Vanilla card stock that had been scored and adhered to the inside of the card. Finally, I added my sentiment created with the New Stampin' Up! Washi Label Punch and embellished with Candy Dots. Although this card looks complicated, it was really easy to stamp and assemble; and people receiving it will be wowed!

Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Layer: 5 1/4" x 4" (Cut with the #5 Oval Framelit)
