Happy Monday! Sorry for the long blog silence – it was actually for a good reason. I have essentially spent the last two weeks creating and filming almost non-stop. I was on such a creative roll…the mojo was just flowing! It’s not often that happens, which is why I didn’t want to stop for anything, not even blogging LOL. Right now I have all my projects for the blog, for Paper Crafter’s Library and for the Stampin’ Up! Projects Video Gallery of PCL designed and filmed all the way until the end of the first week of October – woohoo!
I also wanted to take a minute and thank you for all your feedback regarding my blogging question – to separate my work or keep it all in one location. In addition to all the comments left on the post, I received quite a number of emails as well. Interestingly enough, the opinions were almost evenly split – to keep all my content here vs keeping this blog exclusively SU.
After thinking on all of this for the last few weeks, I’ve decided that I’m going to keep this blog as strictly SU and have a separate blog for my other work. Here’s why….When this blog was launched in 2007, it was launched as an exclusively SU blog…so for the last 5 years (other than a few months this past year when I started posting non-SU) – this blog has become branded as “SU”. All of my search rankings in google are related to SU. When people are looking for my SU projects, this is where they come. Since that is what my readers and followers for the last 5 years have expected to see here, and want to see here, I figured I’d leave it as is.
Besides, I also want to really start building an online identity and brand that is more than just SU, and I would like to start building a non-SU online portfolio that I can use to expand my creative options and opportunities online (I’m thinking about things like publication, design teams, being a guest designer etc.).
I was working on the weekend on my new blog, and hope to have it launched next week.
In the meantime, you can continue to expect to see 2-3 posts here a week, relating to my Stampin’ Up! projects and the Paper Crafter’s Library Stampin’ Up! Projects Online Gallery. Now…onto today’s card.
The stamp set I used for this card is called Wonderfall, and was designed to coordinate with Stampin’ Up!’s Autumn Accents Bigz Die. I have to say, I absolutely LOVE this stamp set…and the coordinating die makes it oh-so-easy to use. I embossed the Crumb Cake cardstock base with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The greeting label and DP label were die cut using the Labels Collection Framelits. The DP is from Stampin’ Up!’s Comfort Cafe collection.
Full Paper Crafter’s Library Members, as well as members of the PCL Stampin’ Up! Projects Video Gallery (see bottom of post) can access the video tutorial and PDF handout HERE (you have to be logged in).
If you haven’t already heard about it:
I’m Excited to Announce our Beta-Launch of our *NEW* Stampin’ Up! Projects Video Gallery
I‘m excited to let you know that I’ve created an all new-division of Paper Crafter’s Library dedicated to Stampin’ Up!-only projects, and I’d like to offer you the opportunity to join at an absolutely dirt-cheap, rock bottom price. Seriously!
As part of your membership to our Stampin’ Up! Projects Video Gallery you’ll receive access to the video tutorial and pdf handout to 3 Stampin’ Up! projects per week – for a total of 12 projects per month! In addition to cards, each month there will be at least one 3D item, one template card, one technique and one scrapbook page. And all for only $7.95 a month!
Why so cheap? Because this is a brand new site which we’ve started from scratch – hence why we’re calling this a beta-launch. There are only a few projects on there right now, but within the next 6 months you’re going to see the content explode with videos on all of Stampin’ Up!’s tools and color mediums included. It will become a true library, rather than just a gallery. And at that time, the price will go up. BUT….if you get in right at the beginning, YOUR price of $7.95 a month will NEVER go up! Now I don’t know when the price is going to go up – it all depends on how fast we can work, so grab this deal while you can by signing up below.
Now in case you are wondering – if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – you can use the projects AND pdf handouts for your workshops and classes. And yes, you can give the pdf handouts to your customers. The only thing we ask is that you do not distribute or share them on online sites, blogs, galleries, etc.
Now for those of you that are Paper Crafters’ Library Members, or are considering Paper Crafters’ Library membership at our member rate of $19.95 per month – you may be wondering what the difference is:
- Stampin’ Up! Projects Video Gallery is INCLUDED in your Paper Crafter’s Library membership
- PLUS ADDITIONAL projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products
- Club 52 membership is included (a technique club which currently includes videos on over 100 different techniques)
- You have access to our existing library of over 800 videos including project, techniques, templates and tool how-to videos
- Regular PCL membership includes over 30 videos a month
- Access to forums and gallery
