This Thursday's "Throw Back" idea is from 2010..yikes!! I was in an "Easel Card Swap" and instead of a card I decided to make an easel calendar. This project may be from 2010, but it is still relevant! I love this color combo: Stampin' Up! Soft Suede, Razzleberry, Always Artichoke (stamped off) and Pretty in Pink.

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator it is difficult to part with certain stamp sets, even after they are retired. I struggled how to store my retired stamps since I don't use them often, but yet I still like to know they are available.

This Thursday's project is another oldie but goodie. I used to love this DSP paper... it was one of my favorites. This project was meant to be a "Mother's Day Memory Album" or a "Brag Book". I made this photo album using Stampin' Up! clear envelopes so you can easily slip in photos (see photo below).
Even though this DSP paper and stamp set are retired, you can replicate this idea with current Stampin' Up! products. Stampin' Up! still carries the clear envelopes. Make this in a baby theme and it makes a perfect gift for new mom's.

I love using Stampin' Up! DSP paper for my stamping projects. I love their paper so much I hate to throw any of it away... even the smallest littlest scraps. I made this cute card using paper scraps and the Stampin' Up! Postage Stamp Punch. Simple and sweet. This card can work with any DSP color combination. Hope this inspires you to craft with your scraps.

All week I have showcased the projects from my February class... this is the last of the projects. This card was made using one of the Sale-A-Bration sets and punches you can get for free (Decorative Dots Embossing Folder #133520, Banner Blast Stamp Set W #133551/ C #133554, Banner Punch #133519 ).
This year I have started a new series of projects for my monthly classes. We will be making a coaster calendar and each month we will make two of the calendar months so this will be a 6 month series of projects. I used regular chipboard coasters and punched two holes using the Crop-a-Dile and I used binder rings which I purchased at Staples.

We made this mini Hershey bar envelope treat using the new Stampin' Up! Envelope Punch Board. So simple and so sweet. I love this cording, it is part of a kit you can get for free as part of the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion going on right now. Stampin' Up Envelope Punch Board #134609, Sale-A-Bration Sweet Sorbet DSP #133521 and Sweet Sorbet Acessory Pack #133522.

This was an adventurous project I made at one of my upline meetings. I believe it was "Spring Fling". This was when Stampin' Up! used to carry chipboard albums in different shapes. You can probably replicate this using chipboard or cardboard and run it through the big shot with the Heart Framelits.
