Adorable Stars for July

Take a look at the adorable card we'll be making in July using the Lovely You stamp set and the Stitched Stars Framelits

If you place an online order by Friday, June 26,
you'll qualify for BOGO 2020
Must use this host code during check out: FXTHFUVY

I used the coordinating In Color Designer Series Paper for the background circle.

The In Color Twill Ribbons are SO soft and easy to use!

To create the 3D effect of the star:

  • Score from one point of the star straight across to the "crook" of the other side. 
  • Then turn and score the next point the same way. 
  • Do that for all 5 points.
  • Stack two or three Stampin' Dimensionals together and adhere to the underside center of the star.

Supplies Used:

Don't forget - Your order can qualify for FREE products if you place it online by Friday, June 26 and use this host code during check out: FXTHFUVY

Color Charts and HEX Values

Stampin' Up! is known for their color coordination of products (like card stock, ink, and ribbons) and for their amazing, rich colors. 

First, I wanted to share with you the HEX Values chart for every Stampin' Up! color. What a great tool when creating online and you're trying to match one of the Stampin' Up! colors.

Second, who doesn't love color combination charts? Stampin' Up! has created these charts to help spark some creativity!


Happy Stamping and combining of colors!

BOGO Sale 2020 is Coming!

The brand NEW Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog has launched and that means it's time once again for my annual BOGO Sale! I've sorted, cleared out and organized all my retired products in preparation for the sale.

Here's how my BOGO Sale works:

  • Make a purchase of any amount from the new Annual Catalog.

  • You get to choose the same amount in FREE products from my retired stash. I'll have ink pads, stamp sets, embellishments, embossing folders, Framelits, ribbon and so much more for you to choose from!
  • For example, if your order's subtotal (before shipping and tax) is $40, then you get to pick out $40 worth of products from my stash and take it home with you for FREE!
  • Online orders qualify, too, when you use the following host code at checkout: FXTHFUVY

    (Additional shipping charge applies for free retired products to be mailed to you. Most products fit in a Flat Rate Envelope and ships for $7.85. Payable via Venmo @ChristiBeckDFW or PayPal.)

  • It's a win-win! You get a great deal on high quality stamping products and it helps me to clear out products I can no longer use in class.
  • All orders need to be in by Friday, June 26th.
So come check out the BOGO Sale on one
of two dates:
Thursday, June 25 or Friday, June 26
both evenings from 5 until 8 pm.
This is a come-and-go event. 

RSVP for the BOGO Sale here and receive an extra ticket to the door prize drawing (you'll receive one entry for attending).

The BOGO Sale will be held in Fort Worth, Texas. Contact me via email for location address.

I look forward to seeing you at the BOGO Sale 2020!

Happy Stamping,

Stampin' Up! Retired / Last Chance Lists

The Last Chance / Retired products list has posted! There are two different PDF files - one list is the retiring products from the Annual Catalog and the other list is from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Be sure to take a look at both.

I know what I'm going to be doing tonight! I love to print the retiring list and go through my catalog to see if there's anything I need to get before it's gone. 

Products are only available through June 2, 2020 or while supplies last. Many retiring accessories like inks, ribbon, embellishments, etc. will sell out so be sure and place your order soon to ensure you get the product you want.

You can also view all the retiring products on my website.

A couple tips:
  • If you wanted to purchase any of the 2018 - 2020 In Colors (ink pads, re-inkers, card stock, ribbon, etc.) get your order in quickly. These have a tendency to sell out fast.
  • Stamp sets will continue to be manufactured through May 22, 2020 but a coordinating punch or Framelit may sell out. Again, be sure to get your order in soon for the best selection.
  • For every purchase of $150 or more, you will still receive Host Rewards - that's FREE product for you!
  • Retiring "Host Only" stamp sets can only be purchased using Host Rewards dollars.

Please let me know if you have any questions. It's hard to believe that a brand new catalog will be out soon!

Happy Stamping and Shopping,

Bubble Wrap Technique with Instruction Sheet

Playing with bubble wrap and creating new backgrounds adds a pop of color and fun to any card or project! And, if you don't have any bubble wrap laying around the house, I found some for $1 at my local dollar store! It's cheap and easy to use (I actually wiped my down with a damp paper towel and could use the same piece over and over).
