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!

Picture Perfect Christmas

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Birthday (coming Occasions 2018), Watercolor Christmas, Foil Snowflakes - handmade Christmas card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey there! I’ll tell ya, I am having a hard time stamping with anything but the new stuff from the Occasions catalog that begins January 3. I always get so excited about a new catalog, and this time is no different!

But it’s also still Christmas time, and there’s a color challenge at Global Design Project that uses a very Christmassy combination, so I compromised and made a Christmas card that uses a birthday stamp set from the new Occasions catalog. Win-win!

Aren’t those little gift bows cute? They come from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set (I’m in love with the whole Picture Perfect Birthday suite). The main color for the red bows is Real Red, stamped off once on scratch paper and then stamped on the Whisper White cardstock. The shadows on the red bow are done in Real Red but are not stamped off first. The green bows are done the same way, but with Lemon-Lime Twist. The shadows are not stamped off, but the bows are. The sentiment is from Watercolor Christmas, which is retiring (sadface). I popped in a gold Foil Snowflake and some 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon in Crumb Cake. My favorite embellishments, though, are those tiny little epoxy dots. These are from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes, also coming in the Occasions catalog. I colored them with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Marker.

For the inside, I stamped the Real Red bow again in the corner. Just a little extra something.

Blog Highlight: Cake Soiree

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. We are being highlighted by the wonderful Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop in January, so please do go vote for me. I’d love to be in the top 10 blog hop again next month!

Coming soon! Stampin' Up! handmade wedding cake card using Cake Soiree, Sweet Cake Framelits, and Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack - FREE item in Sale-A-Bration 2018 - starts January 3 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month, our theme for the Blog Highlight is Flowers. I was happy to see the theme, because I have wonderful new stuff to play with from the upcoming Occasions catalog. I’m showing the Sweet Soiree suite, featuring the Cake Soiree bundle. The background papers are actually cards from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack, which you will only be able to get for FREE during Sale-A-Bration (January 3 – March 31, 2018) with a $50 order. This is one of the most beautiful Memories & More products we’ve ever had and is perfect for making quick and easy cards.

No, I’m serious! This card was quick and easy! Okay, quick-ish. But easy! I glued down the first M&M card. Then I popped the second M&M card up on Dimensionals. I stamped the gorgeous flowered cake from Cake Soiree in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the matching framelit. I colored the flowers with Powder Pink, Old Olive, Marina Mist, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers. I painted Wink of Stella on the white top of the cake, and the top of the bottom layer of the cake, though you can’t see it in the photos. It’s really pretty and sparkly, though! I cut the cake stand out of Champagne Foil with the Sweet Cake framelits — isn’t it fantastic?? I love that intricate detail.

I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set/bundle, in Rich Razzleberry and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. I finished the card off with some Calypso Coral ribbon. I love how flawlessly this whole suite coordinates, and I can’t wait to show you even more projects using this suite!

For the inside, I stamped more stamps from Cake Soiree in Rich Razzleberry and colored the images in with Powder Pink and Marina Mist. The strip of paper down the left side is from the Sweet Soiree specialty designer series paper. You are going to LOVE this paper!

Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop

Welcome to the Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Blog Hop! I am Sarah Fleming, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the USA.  I am part of the Random Act of Kindness Card Group on Facebook, and each month, anyone participating for that month selects one or more recipients to send RAK cards to. For no reason other than to brighten someone’s day!

Please request to join the group if you would like to participate in the RAK cards movement (blogging is not mandatory). #imbringingRAKcardsback #makeacardsendacard

Today I’m showing you the cards I’ve received since the last hop. But there was one card I couldn’t find in all of my Christmas decorating madness, a gorgeous Thanksgiving card made by the lovely and talented Angie McKenzie. You can see it here; it’s one of the Paper Pumpkin alternate cards.

Here are the other cards I’ve received since the October hop — I hope I haven’t left any out! 

Wow! Aren’t they STUNNING?! I’m so thankful for all of these cards!!

Make sure to hop around the full blog hop and see everyone’s beautiful and thoughtful RAK cards! Thanks for stopping by!
