Did you guess the Scallop Tag Topper Punch for the Wild West Pick August 16, 2015?  Sandy did!  Thank you Sandy for making your guess last week.

These little “match books” hold a pad of “Post-It” notes.  Small enough to tuck in your wallet.  Super cute little gifts too.  Have a bigger note pad? No worries.  Just make sure it’s 2″ wide on one side.

Holiday Catalog Pre-order Update: As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator we’re able to order items from upcoming catalogs 30 days in advance.  This pre-order perk is one of the reasons many demonstrators join. On Tuesday, August 4th, we were able to start ordering from the 2015 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ UP!  You’re probably seeing all kinds of fun samples for the upcoming holidays with these cool new products.  If you’d like a catalog, and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (representative), I’d love to send you one.  Send me an email with a request or make a purchase from me and I’ll get one in your hands.

If you just can’t wait until the Catalog goes live on September 1, 2015, consider joining the Wild West Crafters group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators and fill your Starter Kit with pre-order fun.  By joining us, you’ll also get all the perks of be part of the Stampin’ Pretty Pals!  That includes the incredible online community of Pals.  Questions?  Email me (rae@wildwestpaperarts.com) and we’ll set up a time to chat.

Wild West Pick August 16, 2015 Product Round-Up:

Happy Butterfly Basics Birthday

Happy Butterfly Basics Birthday at WildWestPaperArts.com

Happy Friday All!  Hope this week has treated you well. Can’t complain, myself.  So excited that I’m back to creating on a regular basis.  Whew… my DH has sure had a run with bad health this year.  Remember, a while back when I talked about Free-Style Friday?  Well, it’s been a while and time for a re-birth, starting with this “Happy Butterfly Basics Birthday” card.

The concept of Freestyle Friday is to share.  Here’s the idea from my original post…

“What in the world is Free-Style Friday?  It can be many, many things.  Basically, my Friday themes will have something to do with the word “Free”.  Here are some examples of what you could see ….

  • A Free Tutorial
  • Freedom Themed Project
  • Something “Freeky”
  • A Freestyle Project
  • Blog Candy
  • And so on…. get the idea?

You’ll have to check the blog to find out what the “Freebie” for the current Friday is.  Who knows what else I’ll think up. Whatever suits me on that day.”

Back to the current project. You may ask… what in the world does “Free” have to do with this card?”  It’s a subtle reminder that there’s tons of FREE inspiration around us if we’re just willing to observe.  Just always remember to give credit to the one that inspires you when possible.

Inspiration for this card comes from a member of my team of Wild West Crafters, Karen Gooch of Inker’s Workshop. Karen created the original (seen below) for our 2015 New Catalog Stamp Camp. (psst… be on the look out for the 2015 Wild West Holiday Stamp Camp on September 26, 2015).

Happy Butterfly Basics Birthday Inspiration at WldWestPaperArts.com

I just loved the idea of stamping on a Window Sheet (#114323) with StazOn Ink Solvent Ink (#101406) to create this three dimensional effect. I didn’t have the stamp set she used (World of Dreams #134183).  No problem, the substitute (Butterfly Basics #137154) worked just as well.

Happy Buttefly Basics Birthday at WildWestPaperArts.com

Adhere a jewel like this Basic Pearl (#119247) to the stamped image, under the Window Sheet for a little elegance. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope for a beautifully finished set.

And, there you have it… Free-Style Friday with Happy Butterfly Basics Birthday and help from my friend, Karen Gooch!

PPA263 Color Challenge with Pals

PPA263 Color Challenge with Pals

Welcome to PPA263 Color Challenge with Pals! Do you look forward to challenge days like I do? Sure hope so.  Especially when they s-t-r-e-t-c-h those creative muscles.  The colors this week are so beautiful and bright.  Together they could be a bit overwhelming. So… bring on the white space!

PPA 263 Aug. 13

Sometimes in the middle of everything new it’s fun to bring out the tried and true.  That’s what the Bird Builder Punch (#117191) is for me.  When a little spray of greenery (or turqouisery) is needed grab this handy punch and you’ve got it lickety-split. In fact, I had intended to use the Bouquet Bigz L Die (#137637) for the Big Shot Machine (#113439) for the branch but was too lazy.

Bouquet Bigz L Die (#137367) at WildWestPaperArts.com

Bouquet Bigz L Die (#137367)

Love those Stampin’ Up! punches!

Make the layers a little more interesting, just add texture.  Even the wrinkle through the middle panel gets in the act.  Texture on the little birdie wing ties it together from top to bottom, or front to back depending on your point of view.

PPA263-RJ Color Challenge with Pals

The wild linen thread adds an earthy element that fits my style.  Looking at the thread now it resembles a nest.  Hmm…. What do you think?  Random, tangled mess or bird’s nest?

Join me and the rest of Pals Paper Arts Design Team 2 to play PPA263 this week.  Create a project, post to your blog or another online gallery, then link it up!  You’ll find rules at Pals Paper Arts.  Entries for PPA263 must be posted by Tuesday, August 18, 2015, Noon Eastern Time.

What will you come up with this week?  Play PPA263 Color Challenge with Pals!

Wild West Pick of the Week

Did you guess my Wild West Pick for last week’s deals? If you did, you noticed I didn’t have an answer.  Yikes!  Why not?  We had a little hiccup in our schedule here.  Let’s just say my husband had a “hitch in his gitalong” last week.  You’ve probably noticed there’s been nothing posted since then.  Things are getting better and we’re back in the saddle again.  So let’s get going.

Play Wild West Pick of the Week. Here’s how to play….

  1. Every week there will be a Wild West Pick of the Week (something from the Weekly Deals Specials.)
  2. Friday: Guess what the Wild West Pick of the Week might be by commenting ON THIS POST before the Friday of the current week.
  3. Sunday: Look for a new post with the answer.
  4. FREE Tutorial: Everyone that makes a guess at what the Wild West Pick of the Week, right or wrong, will receive a FREE Tutorial.

Now back to the project today.Wild West Pick 2015-08-02 at WildWestPaperArts.com
The sentiment comes from Another Thank You photopolymer stamp set (#133454).  It’s a paired sentiment.  Paired meaning it includes a coordinating sentiment for the inside, like here.

Card Inside

A simple ending for this clean card.

The Designer Series Paper comes from Everyday Chic (#138445).  The little heart motif is the perfect blend.  Now for the big question.  What punch was used for the negative cut outs on the Designer Series Paper?  Well, that’s a secret unless you made a guess last week.  I’m sure you can figure it out.  Chris, you didn’t guess the pick but you’ll still get the tutorial on Monday.

Some exciting news to share!  As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator we’re able to order items from upcoming catalogs 30 days in advance.  This pre-order perk is one of the reasons many demonstrators join. On Tuesday, August 4th, we’re able to order from this year’s holiday catalog and it’s a winner!  You’ll start seeing all kinds of fun samples for the upcoming holidays soon. Now THAT’s Wild!

If you just can’t wait until the Catalog goes live on September 1, 2015 to get your hands on these new toys, consider joining the Wild West Crafters group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.  You can fill your Starter Kit with pre-order fun.  By joining us, you’ll also get all the perks of be part of the Stampin’ Pretty Pals!  That includes the incredible online community of Pals.  Questions?  Email me (rae@wildwestpaperarts.com) and we’ll set up a time to chat.
