One Card, Three Ways - Forever Greenery Suite

Hello everyone! It's an exciting time in the world of paper crafting right now as the new 2020 - 2021 Annual Catalogue from Stampin' Up! is now available! I am super excited and have already placed my order! Have you?!

You can download the new catalogue HERE.

As I wait for my new product to arrive, I've continue to use the gorgeous Forever Greenery Suite. In fact, after I did my Annual Catalogue walkthrough on my Facebook Live yesterday, I created one card, three ways. View the Facebook Live replay HERE to learn more about the catalogue and watch the project tutorials (but skip to the 43:00 min mark to watch the project tutorials directly).

This idea really started from OnStage Live in Orlando, which is the amazing three day conference from Stampin' Up! that I had the absolute honour to be a presenter at. The theme really was about the various levels of crafters; the beginner, the casual, and the avid crafter.

The beginner crafter is just that, a beginner. Someone who is just getting started. Are you in this category? We were all there once! If you're a beginner crafter, this card making stuff can be intimidating, but it can also be oh so fun! All you really need are stamps, ink, and paper! If you're a Beginner Crafter, check out the new Beginner Brochure! This will help get you started with Stampin' Up!, and of course, I am here to help you place your order and can provide guidance as you begin your crafting journey.

The casual crafter is someone who has been crafting for a while, but doesn't always get to spend the time on it. You have some supplies and have slowly started building your craft stash. Is this you? If it is, this is a great time to start learning new techniques and trying out some great new tools like punches. For this card, I used the Classic Label Punch for the sentiment and a Sponge Dauber to edge the punch out. The new 2020 - 2021Annual Catalogue has a lot of great new products for you to add to your collection. I'd be happy to help you select some product you can use in your paper crafting. Contact me via my website or send me an email at hello@sweetpaperstudios.com and I am happy to chat options.

The avid crafter is someone who has to have it all! This is where I sit! I craft several times a week, own a lot of tools and supplies, and am drawn to all sorts of tools and techniques. Is this where you sit? The 2020 - 2021 Annual Catalogue has so many new items and suites that you'll want to take a look at! I highly suggest you take a look at the Forever Greenery Suite and the new Flowers For Every Season Suite. Both come with all of the things!

No matter where you sit, the one thing I love about Stampin' Up! is a versatility of their products. The Forever Greenery Suite is such a good example of taking a product suite with a lot of elements, but then being able to do something a bit more simple with it. You'll find that with a lot of our products. Our colour and product coordination really help guide all levels of crafters and allow us to create the most beautiful projects, even if they are simple.
