About Me

Sarahfleming1 Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Welcome Little Blueberry

FB_IMG_1488872724561Hi! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop! The winners from April’s baby-themed Blog Highlights are hopping with Kylie today, and I’m honored to be in the winners’ blog hop again with so many talented crafters! Thank you so much to those who voted for me!!

Stampin' Up! Animal Outing (coming soon), Love What You Do, Flourish Thinlits, Bouquet Bunch framelits, Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - Kylie's International Blog Highlights Top 10 Winners Blog Hop - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Our theme for the blog hop is once again Babies, so I pulled out this adorable little stamp set that I received at OnStage in April called Animal Outing. It’s an absolutely adorable stamp set, and I can’t wait to get the matching framelits. Here I’ve stamped the kangaroo and koala in Soft Suede (because I cannot find my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad) and colored it with Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light Smoky Slate, and the Color Lifter Blends. These will be back in stock this month, and they’re worth the wait! I cut out the animals with a Stitched Shapes framelit and surrounded that with a Layering Squares framelit piece cut out of Crumb Cake cardstock.

Behind the animals, I have stamped some branches from the Love What You Do stamp set (available NOW in 3 different bundles!!) on the Blueberry Bushel cardstock (new In Color, ink can be purchased now, and cardstock will be available June 1). This is one of my favorite blues we’ve ever had! The photo isn’t quite true to color — it’s a little less purple-ish in person. A really nice clean blue. The leaves are cut out of Crumb Cake, Call Me Clover (available June 1), and Vellum cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bushel and Call Me Clover and punched them out with the Classic Label punch. I added some accessories, and I was done!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to go to the next blog in the hop and hop all the way around the world with us and get lots of inspiration. Right now you’re at Sarah Fleming’s blog.

Some things I used on my card can be found in my online Stampin’ Up! store, and the rest will be available June 2nd.

Hi Octopus

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Our theme for this month is Focus on Tools. I decided to focus on my favorite and probably most essential tool, the Big Shot. And wouldn’t you know, I also ended up using my Heat Tool, Stampin’ Sponges, and Aqua Painters.

Stampin' Up! Sea of Textures with Under the Sea Framelits and Tranquil Textures paper, Pick a Pennant, Wood Crate Framelits, Softly Falling embossing folder, Nature's Twine - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts #IIBH

This card actually came out of a failed experiment, of which I ended up using only the octopus. I like to salvage what I can from my failures and move on. I’m really happy with how this failure turned out!

The designer paper in the background is from the brand-new Tranquil Textures paper that will be in the new Annual Catalog in June. The center panel is Shimmery White cardstock, which I first embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder (using the Big Shot). Next I stamped on some texture in Tranquil Tide and Night of Navy using the Sea of Textures stamp set, then watercolored using Aqua Painters and two ink pads — Tranquil Tide and Bermuda Bay.

Behind the octopus is a cargo net cut using the Under the Sea dies that coordinate with the Sea of Textures stamp set. I love this die! For the octopus, I sponged Blackberry Bliss and Coastal Cabana ink onto Shimmery White cardstock, then stamped the octopus and embossed him with Clear Embossing Powder. All the dark blue in and around the octopus is Prussian Blue Brusho (part of the big failure). I cut him out with the die.

The coral on the tag is stamped with Sea of Textures in Mint Macaron, and “HI” is from a new font stamp set called Pick a Pennant. The Blackberry Bliss twine is from Nature’s Twine. The tag is cut out with the Wood Crate framelits.

Love & Share

Hey there! Welcome to the Go For Greece Blog Hop! Go For Greece is a training group put on by Kylie Bertucci for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators working toward earning the incentive trip to Greece. I don’t know if I will earn the trip, but I do know the training provided in the group has been invaluable for my growing my business. I love this group!

I decided to show you a few of my Display Stamper projects from OnStage today. I had a few things from the Share What You Love suite (from the upcoming annual catalog) to work with, and today I’m focusing on some projects that use the Share What You Love Specialty designer series paper. This paper is GORGEOUS. Seriously.

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love paper with Sitting Pretty stamps - 2018-2019 Annual Catalog - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My first project is a card that uses two different papers from the suite. Isn’t the paper fantastic? I love it so much. I really love the Mint Macaron (returning color!) piece with the big, fun, watercolory flowers. The smaller piece has writing and a Petal Pink (new color!) background. The sentiment is from the upcoming Sitting Pretty stamp set, punched with the Pretty Label Punch.

My next project is a bag I made using the Share What You Love paper and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits (retiring! That one is going to hurt.). The bag is made from adorable floral paper. The Mint Macaron stitched square and the sentiment are stamped with stamps from Love What You Do. The new ribbon is Powder Pink 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love paper with Copper Tea Tins and Lined Alphabet - 2018-2019 annual catalog - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My last project uses the fun new Copper Tea Tins. These tins will hold 3×3 note cards or… well, tea. I took the tea tin literally and decorated it as such. I used the So Saffron floral paper (it’s shiny with pearlized tiny flowers) all the way around the tin. The Old Olive and Mint Macaron flowers are cut from another sheet of the paper. I labeled it using the upcoming Lined Alphabet stamps, then added some final touches with the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack and the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers.

The Share What You Love paper and Love What You Do stamp set will be available to customers on May 1st, along with some other beautiful things from the same suite of products! The other new things I showed will be available on June 2nd.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to hop through the blog hop and see more fabulous projects from other fabulous demonstrators!

I’m so sad that Moon Baby is retiring! Make sure you get it if you want it before it retires forever! That pink ribbon is a new ruffled ribbon in Powder Pink. It will be available in all of the 2017-2019 In Colors.
