How Do You Follow Your Art?

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Follow Your Art Suite Spotlight


We follow our hearts when we create handmade cards and gifts that bring us and those around us joy. The Follow Your Art Suite is a celebration of the tools and images from our stamping and craft hobbies. Creating a card, decor, or gift with this suite is the perfect way to make any crafty person smile!

This suite is stashed full of fun stamps, paper, dies, and an embossing folder. The Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit is an accessory lovers dream combination of stitched felt accents, linen thread, mini paper clips, and silver charms all packaged in a sturdy designer storage box.

It's hard to choose, but my favorite part of the suite might just be the adorable custom Stampin' Up! branded Washi Tape and mini Stampin' Up! logo boxes. They are too cute to resist!

Check out the tutorial below for just one of many projects you can create. What will you create when you Follow Your Art?

    4. Wrap Pacific Point Linen Linen Thread from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit around your fingers 4-5 times to create loops that are about 2-1/2" across. Adhere to card with a few Glue Dots. Layers you'll add on top will also help hold the thread in place.

    Card Layouts for Creative Sanity



    Do you love card layouts as much as I do?  If you haven't tried one I totally recommend it!  A card layout is a great way to get your mind focused, prevent creative block and the sense of overwhelm you can get from staring at a blank piece of paper and wondering where to start.

    It's like a nice little map that narrows down all the possible ideas into one manageable direction. 

    Then it's just a matter of picking a stamp set, colors, and whatever accessories you want to add to fancy it up. From one card layout you can make so many different and unique creations.  

    CraftyPerson card layouts are my favorite, of course!  ;)

    You can see several cards created using this layout here.

    Share your creations with me, I love seeing what you come up with!


    Happy Stampin',

    Take Your Pick Tool Tip - Cling Stamps



    CraftyPerson shared this great tip.

    The spatula end of the Take Your Pick Tool is great for getting under the Cling image label in order to lift it and remove the stamp from a block.
