New Beginnings | GDP123

Hello Friends!

I decided to enter the Global Design Project Challenge #123 at the last minute, and I’m super excited to show you what I came up with! I’ve done the challenge before, but I admit, it’s been a while!

New Beginnings GDP123 - 1

This challenge (#GDP123) is all about new beginnings, and I think this is something we can all relate to. Whether it’s a new job, you’re a new Stampin’ Up! Demo (or want to be!), retirement, wedding…the list can go on! We’ve all started anew at one point or other, so what a perfect theme!


For this particular card, I had two things in mind; retirement and/or new job. I think it suits either occasion as its bright, cheery, and really shows excitement!

The layout of the card is cased from the lovely Lauren Alarid, who is a fellow demonstrator and a 2018 Artisan Design Team Member. Her cards are always so lovely, but the layout in which this one is based, is probably one of my faves!

You’ll notice that I used a couple of different stamp sets for this card; the new Picture Perfect Stamp Set from the new Occasions Catalogue, as well as the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue.

Colours used are Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Peekaboo Peach. Also used is the beautiful Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which created the beautiful background on this card.

Event Spotlight: Catalogue Launch Party


Launch Party

Hi Friends!

The new 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue is all set to launch on June 1st, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to tell you all about my Catalogue Launch Party!

If you’re local to the Hamilton, ON area, then I invite you to join me for an evening of fun!

This is my first-ever launch party, and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am! I have so many great things planned and I am beyond excited to show you all the new items Stampin’ Up! has to offer! If you haven’t seen any yet, CLICK HERE, to get a few sneak peek at the new Birthday Delivery Bundle. There are also a few new projects posted on my Instagram, so be sure to check it out and follow.

Anyway, back to the launch party! This drop-in style event will be filled with fun, laughter, and crafting. Here are just a few of things I have planned for you:

  • Each person will get a copy of the brand new catalogue (the best part)!
  • Each person will get a special gift (or two) from me because I am so thankful that you can attend.
  • Everyone will get to make one or two make-and-takes featuring new products.

There will also be door prizes, light refreshments, and more!

Plus, each person who places an order valued at $45 or more (before taxes and shipping) from the new catalogue at the launch party, will be entered to win a $30 shopping spree on me!

Doesn’t this sound fun! Be sure to RSVP by May 29th via the Facebook event page.

If you have any questions about the event, please leave a comment below or contact me directly.

Note that the event address will only be sent to those who have RSVP’d via the Facebook event page or to those who have RSVP’d with me directly.

I hope to see you there!


Welcome to Stampin’!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll notice that things have changed around here. And for the better I hope.

If you’re new, then welcome to Stampin’!

I used to be Handstamped with Love, but to be honest, have neglected that blog for a while now. While stamping, crafting, and general DIY have always been a passion of mine, it wasn’t until recently that my passion for blogging and my passion to take this business a bit further, were reignited.

You see, I am part of the “Stamp with Jenn” team, and with this, Jenn hosts quarterly meetings where we chat all things business, projects, and ideas…and of course we also get crafty. It was at this meeting where something in me just clicked. I’ve always been active with my Stampin’ Up! business; hosting events, etc., but I’m mostly only active on my Facebook page.

So as we were talking, though I can’t pinpoint the exact moment, something sparked within and I instantly had project ideas come to mind, and this included a complete rebranding of my stamping business. New name, new blog, new Facebook page, and new Instagram.

I truly love this business of mine and I love to share the joy and love crafting and stamping can bring, so with my newly rebranded Stampin’ Up! business, I hope to help you inspire and create. And who knows, maybe you’ll even join me on this journey in the future.

I do hope you follow along, so be sure to follow my blog by clicking the ‘follow me‘ bottom on the side bar. Not only will I be sharing project and card ideas, but you’ll also find crafting and DIY tutorials, and who knows, maybe even some self-love tutorials as well!

Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support my business. I truly appreciate you all.
