2022 CALENDAR

I had a difficult time narrowing DSP down to 3 to give you a small assortment.  Normally, these are done here and everyone chooses their own DSP.  I chose 3 and I hope one of them is just what you are looking for.

01.10.22 Calendar with goldThe first calendar is Pale Papaya, Mint Macaron and gold.  The DSP is from Expressions in Ink and features gold throughout the design.  I chose to pop up the 2022 so that next year, you can gently pry off the last 2 and replace it with a 3.  Dimensionals are much more forgiving than glue.  I have calendars that are 4 years old and I simply tear off the final month and adhere the new year on top,  I adhered my calendar to the Mint Macaron layer with 6 rows of sticky strip.  I adhered the layered calendar to the calendar front with 6 rows of sticky strip – I guarantee this calendar will NOT fall apart!!“

01.10.22 Calendar with gold backI think a simple message is nice to put on the back of the calendar.  After all, someone will be looking at this work of art for at least a year.  This year, I chose “All days are beautiful that begin with you.”  Isn’t that a wonderful message to see every day.  And because this is the year of the bird, a bird in the appropriate color comes with the Cards to Go. 

If you have crafted these calendar before, you may prefer making yours from scratch.  I think these are a thoughtful gift.  I have a cousin and a girlfriend who rely on their calendars to sit on their kitchen table and remind them what day it is.  A single calendar is available $0.60 – 5 for $2,75 – 10 for $5.50.  These are available every summer from Tailored Expressions.com. 

The best directions are from the Splitcoaststampers tutorials – you can check it out here:  https://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/calendareaselcard/.

01.10.22 Calendar Hydrangea HavenThe second calendar I chose is Hydrangea Haven with Misty Moonlight, Highland Heather, and Gorgeous Grape.  This calendar pops with color.  The back side includes card stock with the message shown above and a color appropriate bird.  Once again, I used at least 6 strips of sticky strip to adhere the calendar to the Highland Heather layer, and at least 6 strips to adhere the calendar layer to the card front.  Your Card to Go includes the card stock cut to size and scored, the DSP, die cut numbers and the stamped back layer with color appropriate bird. 

01.10.22 Calendar in corkBut what about the men in your life?  Many men have a desk and a small calendar may be appreciated.  This calendar is done in Early Espresso, Cajun Craze and CORK!  Yes, I said CORK.  This DSP is a thin layer of cork with a thin paper backing.  Because of the lean DSP, an extra layer is added to insure sturdiness.  Cajun Craze is adhered to the Early Espresso card and the thin cork layer is adhered to the Cajun Craze – the result is a very durable and sturdy card.  I chose to keep this calendar stark and masculine.  Embellishments would detract from the cork.  Again, the back includes white card stock with the stamped message and a color appropriate bird.

01.10.22 Magnets on Calendar  If you prefer a calendar for the refrigerator or other metal surface, magnet strips can be attached to the calendar back.  My  refrigerator calendar is 4 years old and every year I adhere the new calendar over the old.  This image shows the calendar backing.  The magnet strips have a backing that when removed, allows the strip to stick to the card stock.  There is no easel, but an extra layer is included as seen above with the cork calendar.  This is done to insure the calendar is sturdy and durable.  If you wish the magnet calendar, simply request that.

So there you have it – January Stamp Camp Cards to Go.  Make sure you let us know if you do not want a message or sentiment stamped for a particular card.  If not mentioned, everything will be stamped as noted.  Once you let us know what you wish for January, we will package everything up and let you know when it can be picked up or when we can drop it off to you.  Prices remain the same as 2021.  Please let me know if you have any questions.!!!!!

EXPRESSIONS IN INK

Expressions in InkIsn’t this the most gorgeous designer paper ever?  Of course I like pink and gold so it is a favorite of mine.  The Expressions in Ink paper will be retiring with this catalog and is already indicating low inventory due to its popularity.  Check out the different patterns here:  Expressions in Ink.  To highlight the DSP, Debbie layered it onto Magenta Madness, Basic white and a Magenta Madness card.

 

01,10.22 Exp in InkThe sentiment is wet embossed in gold and is layered onto a die-cut Magenta Madness label, and then onto a gold die-cut Ornate Frames which is popped up with dimensionals.  3 champagne rhinestones add a bit of elegant glimmer.  The message is stamped in Magenta Madness and features a strip of the Expressions in Ink DSP and a small gold bird.  I have declared this the year of the bird and will try my best to include a bird with each card.  I didn’t do a very good job in 2021 with hearts but I will try my best with birds.  This Card to Go comes with all the cardstock pre-cut, sentiment stamped and wet embossed, message stamped, DSP strip and a small gold bird.  If you do not wish to have the sentiment and/or message stamped, you must let us know.

Have you checked out your new Mini Catalog?  If you can’t find your copy, check it out here  January-June Mini Catalog

Our final project will be a 2022 calendar.  My goal had been to offer them for the Christmas Buffet – but that never happened.  I will also have the small calendars available singly if you prefer making your own from scratch.  Check back tomorrow to see what I have planned.

SHADED SUMMER

01.10.22 Shaded SummerShaded Summer is another card making me hope for summer!  This crisp Navy and white card features my favorite Tufted embossing folder, I’m sad this embossing folder was retired as it is so very elegant.  I checked the internet and the prices being asked for this folder are absolutely ridiculous!  I’m glad we have one!  The navy layer is embossed with the Subtle embossing folder which leaves a linen finish.  The floral image is stamped in Night of Navy on white and die-cut with the Summer Shadow dies which were in a previous Sale-A-Bration campaign.  The simple birthday sentiment is stamped and layered on navy and die cut with the Tasteful Label Dies. 

01.10.22 Shaded Summer msgAnd of course, we have one of Debbie’s marvelous little multi-loop bows made with retired 1/4” navy ribbon from her private Stampin’Up stash.  The message layer features a simple message and a stamped image from Shaded Summer.  Your Cards-To-Go will include all card stock cut to size and embossed as described, stamped and die-cut images, and a multi-loop bow.

Are you starting to get excited about stamping?  Or have you already started back up after all your Christmas treasures were sent out?  I have to be truthful, I’m just getting back into the swing of things.  I’ve been too comfortable in my recliner snuggled under my red weighted blanket.  But I’m getting there – my fingers are ink-stained again and I have a wound on my right thumb from my crafting scissors!  Two more January projects coming up

TIMELESS TROPICS

Welcome to 2022 Paper Rose!  I’m not sure I can even remember how to post a blog as its been so long!  I intensely dislike January and February and its hard for me to get back “in gear.”  I am not fond of snow, ice, dreary days and frigid weather.  In fact, I’m sitting here in a thermal top, turtleneck, and flannel ski pajamas!  But I’m comfortable and that’s important!  As Omicron is ravaging our area, I am choosing to make January Stamp Camp as Cards To Go.  This may happen in February also, but it’s too soon to make that decision.  I’m hoping Omicron will peak very soon and life can return to semi-normal!  I don’t remember what normal is or was!  but we still need our cards as people have birthdays, become ill, need pick-me-ups and pass away.  Our beautiful stamped communications are more important than ever.  So let’s get started!

01.10.22 Timeless TropicsDoesn’t this card make you yearn for warm climates and tropical flowers!  And it’s purple – good by red and green!  This lovely card features the beautiful hibiscus stamped on the FREE Simply Marbelous DSP.  This FREE DSP is on page 10 in the Sale-a-bration brochure.  Check out the Marbelous colors here:  Free Marbelous DSP – or you can go to Paperrose01.stampinup.net and go to Specials – Sale-A-Bration – Shop Products – $50 spend – See Products.  I think this is lovely paper and worthy of a glance..

01.10.22 Timeless Tropics msgThis gorgeous card is done in Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, a touch of Call Me Clover, and of course white.  The sentiment and message also come from Timeless Tropics.  The ribbon and rhinestones are from Debbi’s secret stash!  She designed this card and did a wonderful job!  In your “Cards to Go,” you will receive the card stock cut to size, die cut flowers and leaves, premade bow and rhinestones.  The sentiment and message will be pre-stamped UNLESS WE ARE TOLD TO LEAVE THE STAMPING OFF!  We know you would rather be gathered in my family room/kitchen, but to be safe, it would be better to craft apart.
