Two-step Stamping Technique at CPC

When I first became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I found how easy it was to use the two-step stamping technique to create great cards, especially with Stampin' Up! exclusive stamp sets.  If you want to learn more about this technique, Jacque has created a technique page for Craft Project Central.  Remember, there are stamp sets on sale right now till the end of April that are great for this two-step stamping technique.  Visit my website under promotions for details of the sets on sale.

More from Craft Project Central

Here are two more great projects from Craft Project Central as well as the April Bonus project.  These projects will work well as gifts for Mother's Day!  Now I have to decide which one to make or both. Jane designed the "Mother's Day Album in a Tin."

Stampin' Up! New Colors

I'm so excited to see Stampin' Up! announcing the six new colors (Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, and Marina Mist) earlier this week.  Crumb Cake was previously known as Kraft.  SU renamed the product and added the ink.  Along with the new colors, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, and Wild Wasabi are amongst the retired In Colors that are coming back (so glad I didn't sell them when they retired and now I can dig out my old samples).  And you can see that Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Soft Suede will continue in the new 2010-2011 catalog.

And sadly, there will be colors that will be retiring.

Birthday Card Organizer - Project 4 at CPC

This is the latest project I designed for Craft Project Central.  I personally need this birthday card organizer so I won't forget anyone's birthday.  Each file folder has a place for you to write the names of  your friends/family members birthdays.  Plus, you can store your handmade cards so that you can use them when the time comes to send out the birthday wish.  Here's another view of the organizer closed.

Craft Project Central - Project #3 (Tea Party Tags Tote)

You will have to check out this clever way of holding your gift tags. This great project was designed by Jacque and you can find it when you sign up at Craft Project Central.

Easter Card and April CPC Projects

A little slow on the post last week with Spring Break and a big work project.  So, it's catch up time.  I hope all of you had a great Easter.  Here is a cute Easter card my friend, Sharon, made for us.  Unfortunately, you can't smell the bunny in person.  It has a sweet, chocolate smell.

Are you looking for more creative ideas?  Well, here are the first two April projects at Craft Project Central.  This cute little baby album, created by Naoko, makes a great gift for the new mom, grandparents, or make it for your baby.

Another cute punch art... Brenda created this cute "Bear Bag with Matching Cards." With the instructions for both projects, you can always change the color scheme and images to meet any occassion.
