Take to the Sky Tutorial Bundle

Hello stampers! Have you fallen in love with the Take to the Sky suite?? It was one of the first suites that I purchased. I love the vintage feel of this whole suite, the colours, the vibe and the fact that it is perfect for masculine cards. OnStage in Houston was where it was first introduced and all of the projects displayed made me go “wow”!! Today I will share with you some of the cards that I made and I will also tell you about a brand new adventure that I have started!


My Take to the Sky Cards


Many of these cards were inspired by my friend Melissa Alvarez who presented on this suite at OnStage in Houston.

The Adventure


It has been on my heart for a while to collaborate with a fellow demonstrator so that we can combine our talents to better serve stampers. My goal was to figure this out while on the incentive trip to Mexico. Less than 1% of demonstrators achieve this goal, so it is super special to be there. One of the best things about these trips is to be with other demonstrators who are often on the same wavelength regarding the business side of Stampin’Up!
Unbeknownst to me, there was another demonstrator also in Mexico who was having the same thoughts and she approached me!!! What a blessing. We decided to chat more to see if our vision for this collaboration alligned, and it did! Yay!!!!
As many of you may already know, I have collaborated with the amazing Natalie Travis from My Stamp on Life to create Stampin’ Haven. This is a private group but all demonstrators and stampers are welcome to join, so check it out and request to join. On the first Tuesday of every month we do a free Zoom gathering at 11 am EST and then on the fifteenth of every month we launch a tutorial bundle.

Tutorial Bundle

Our first Stampin’ Haven tutorial bundle is ready for purchase!! It is $15 on the 15th of every month. This month we are featuring Take to the Sky suite. There is a fancy fold card, a technique card and two other cards. The bundle includes a written pdf tutorial as well as video tutorials.
Both Natalie and I love to support our teams and our customers. That means that the tutorial bundle is free to team members as well as to customers who place a $50 order. If you are a demonstrator and just want to purchase the tutorial, that is also possible.
To purchase the tutorial you can either etransfer to jackiebultje@gmail.com or if you want to use PayPal you can use this link.   Be sure to also email me so that I can send you your tutorial bundle. Thanks SO much for your support. Have a SUper day!!

Salebration Inspiration!!

Hello stampers and happy Tuesday to you. I have found a magical combination for some serious Saleabration Inspiration!! The Meandering Meadow suite coordinates so well with so many of our saleabration offerings. In fact, I made a 17 card pdf tutorial to inspire you. You can get it for free when you order with me, or you can purchase it in my tutorial store here.


17 card mega tutorial bundle featuring saleabration products combined with online exclusives.


Features and Benefits of Saleabration Inspiration


One of the great features of this saleabration inspiration tutorial is that it shows a. card that is suitable for a beginner and then also has a stepped up version for more advanced stampers. There are some great tips and tricks for getting the most out of your saleabration freebies! I love tutorials because they jump start your creativity and make you happy to be in your stamp room again!


Don't waste the birds along the side and bottom of your Flight & Airy paper, they look great on a card too!



This card uses both sides of the same piece of paper. Just die cut the circle and turn it upside down!


Video Tutorial


I made a little video tutorial showing you a few tips and tricks with the Flight & Airy paper. It really is amazing what you can do with this lovely Flight & Airy Paper! If you want to have more saleabration inspiration, check out this blog post from last year! (actually less than two weeks ago)



Best Deal Ever!


If you have followed me for any length of time, you know that I am a firm believer in the starter kit. It is an absolute mystery to me why every single customer of mine has not purchased the starter kit. It is such an amazing deal and there are no strings attached. If you could get a Costco membership for free for six months and you also got to choose around $200 worth of ANYTHING in the store and pay only $135, wouldn’t you jump on it? That is what the offer is with the starter kit.

Right now for only $135 you can get $165 worth of products PLUS the glass plate, silicone palette and gray shammy as a bonus (worth about $100 with shipping and tax) You can also choose the option of getting $206 worth of product for only $135. Here is the link if what I said made sense to you (valid only in Canada)

Did you know that each month I now offer 20% cash back from the catalog price of the featured bundle? You have until August 30 to take advantage of this deal. In the meantime, take a look at my cards and let me know what you think! Which one is your favourite?

Masked Fun on Wheels card, all supplies Stampin'Up!


Fun on Wheels bundle green and white card with embossing. All products Stampin'Up! Card designed by The Pampered Stamper.


This vintage Fun On Wheels uses a touch of Wild Wheat and a Pebble Path subtle  splatter to create a great vintage look.


Video Tutorial

Seeing is believing, so check out this video tutorial. If you haven’t already done so, subscribe to my YouTube channel so that you catch these videos every week. To make this particular card, two other stamp sets were used to create the scene. My team member, Caroline van Roestel-Seward designed this card and graciously shared her tips with me. You can see the products that were used in the product list below.


I’m Curious


I’m curious. Are you a one set at a time stamper, or do you like combining different stamp sets to create a complex look? I tend to use just one set a time, but I really do love using several at once too. One of the reasons that I do use one set at a time is that if you are just beginning to stamp it can be overwhelming to need so many supplies to make a nice card.

Anyways, thanks for joining me today. I am grateful for you and I hope that you have a super day.

Fantastic Inspiration with Tutorial Bundles

Hello stampers! It’s been a while since I have talked about the fantastic inspiration you can derive from Tutorial Bundles. I am a part of the International Create With Us tutorial bundle team. Each month we create a tutorial with 15 separate projects. Most often it is cards, but every once in a great while it is 3D items like boxes, bags or home decor items. These tutorials are sold for $20US or they are free with a $60 purchase.


Tutorial Bundles


This is the tutorial bundle sneak peek for February. The theme is Fancy Flora.

Sometimes it can be hard to find things on a blog. You can find my tutorials on the top of my blog on the home page under PDF Tutorials. Here is a link to make it even easier.  I also belong to two other Tutorial Bundle teams. One of these teams is called the  Demo Design Dream Team. These tutorials are $15US.

You get a free tutorial with each $60 purchase and you can let me know which one you want if you have a preference.

Hidden Gems

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. There are always hidden gems in the catalog. Things that we don’t see as we are flipping through the pages. It’s not until you have them in your hands that you realize exactly how big the dies are, how sparkly the embellishments or how pretty the font of a sentiment. I did a video on YouTube showing my latest finds and I hope you like them too. I mistakenly thought some of them were from the new mini, but many are from the annual catalog. Take a look!!

Triple Floating Diamond Card

Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am going to share the Triple Floating Diamond card that my team member Barb Gourlay taught at my team retreat a couple of weeks ago. It’s a stunning card and with some clear instruction it is not that difficult to make. This blog post will include Barb’s written instructions as well as my video. I hope it inspires you to make your own card, and if you do, please share it with me, I would LOVE to see your work. Let’s take a look.


Triple Floating Diamond Card


Here is the photo of my triple floating diamond card. This style of card was designed by Scrimpingmommy from the UK. I have been unable to find her video or blog post on this card, but that is what Barb used as her inspiration. She changed up the measurements so that the card would fit in a regular North American envelope that Stampin’Up! sells.

Edited: one of my followers found the link to the original video, so if you want to make this card in metric you will find it most helpful. Just click here.
