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!

Hey, stamping friends! Are you interested in the Stampin’ Blends markers but unsure where to start? I have a club for you! Here’s how it will work:

Stampin’ Up! has announced that they will release these high-quality markers for customers on November 1. My Blends Club will run from November through March, and by the end of the club, you will have all 27 of the currently available markers.

Club duration: 5 months, November 2017 through March 2018. Note that this club runs through all three months of Sale-A-Bration, so during each Sale-A-Bration month, you will choose one Sale-A-Bration freebie with your club kit!

Cutoff: You must sign up no later than November 10th. I will start sending invoices for the first month on November 3, and your invoice must be paid by November 10th.

Price: $58 plus $7 priority shipping per month. Payment must be received via Paypal no later than the 10th of each month. Club kits will ship on or about the 20th via Priority Mail.

Products: By the end of the Blends Club, you will have all 27 of the markers currently offered (2 shades each of 12 colors, plus the 2 skin tones and the Color Lifter), a new ink pad, 5 new stamp sets, several new embellishments and tools, storage cases for your markers,15 Make & Take projects, and 3 Sale-A-Bration freebies of your choice (one each month in January, February, and March). You’re paying retail for the markers, ink pads, and stamps but getting the accessories, storage cases, Make & Take projects, and tutorials for free!! Plus your Sale-A-Bration items!

Tutorials and Make & Take projects: With your class kit, you will get three Make & Take projects each month. These are geared toward teaching you how to use your Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers with the current month’s stamp set. Each Make & Take will be included in a full-color PDF tutorial, and some will have video tutorials.

Check out the video for more details! I hope to see you all in the Blends Club!

Black and White and…

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Black & White plus one other color. I chose Bermuda Bay, one of my favorites.

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas, Seasonal Bells, Bell Punch, Year of Cheer paper and washi tape, Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My card features the Year of Cheer specialty designer series paper (seriously love this stuff!), Carols of Christmas stamp set, Seasonal Bells stamps with Bell Punch, and Year of Cheer specialty washi tape. Oh, and the new Stampin’ Blends!

I sponged Bermuda Bay on the Year of Cheer paper with a Stampin’ Sponge before gluing it to the Basic Black card base. The sentiment panel is 3″ x 4″, and the Basic Black mat behind it is 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″. I love the “deck the halls” sentiment stamped in black (I used Memento Tuxedo Black). After stamping the sentiment (I used my MISTI to line it up and stamp it), I glued it to the mat, added the strip of washi, and popped the sentiment up on Dimensionals.

I stamped the bells in the same ink (that’s the ink Stampin’ Up! recommends to use with the Blends). I colored the bells with the Light and Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends (available for customers November 1!) and also the Color Lifter. For the tiny bell handles at the top, I didn’t want to risk going outside the lines, so I used the pointy end of a Stampin’ Write marker for those bits. I put the bells on Dimensionals and finished off the card with Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine.

I didn’t take a picture of the inside, but I just lined it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you liked my card featuring Bermuda Bay. You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all of our projects. You don’t want to miss any of the designs from these talented demonstrators!

Hi! I made this card in my live Facebook card yesterday. I hadn’t done much with the Quilted Christmas suite yet and really had fun playing. The above card is the one I made in the video, fully inking up the embossing folder. The card below is the card I showed at the beginning with the embossing folder inked up randomly.

Moon Baby gift set

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

Stampin' Up! handmade baby gift set using Moon Baby and new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - heat embossing - Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The theme for this month’s blog highlight is Change of Life Circumstances. New babies, graduation, retirement, wedding, etc. I decided to show you a little baby gift set.

This past weekend I co-hosted a baby shower for an expectant mama at church, and one of the activities that the guests did was to fill out a card with “wishes for baby”. The cards are 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, so I made this mini accordion-style album to put all of the cards in so the mother will have them as a keepsake for her baby. I used the Moon Baby stamp set, along with the new Stampin’ Blends (see the list of colors I used at the very bottom of this post). And since the cards  (you can see the top of one of them in the next photo) are baby pink and gold, I used Pink Pirouette and gold.

I heat embossed both sentiments, and I gold embossed the Hearts & Stars Elements star.

This is how the album folds out when it’s untied.

I made a matching card, as you do. This stamp is also from Moon Baby, and I incorporated the gold and the Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon to match the album.
