So many smile .... begin with you!

Petite Pairs (#122497 - $25.95) offers a sentiment for just about every occasion. I love how they come in pairs.

Hi dear Stampers.

Before I start my post today, I just have to blur out that I went this morning to the Stampin Up demonstrators website. On that site I was able to view the upcoming New Occasions Mini Catalogue that will be available from January 4th - April 30th of 2012. And looking through the pages of this mini, I have so fallen in love with all the new products that were designed to help you celebrate the upcoming occasions. There is an abundance of gorgeous new Stampin Up dies for your Big Shot! I know you'll be as excited as I am once you are able to get your creative hands on it. The stamp sets in the Mini are to adorable for words. They went above and beyond their cuteness level. I am so excited to show you it all to you, once we can as demo's.

I am sure you're already aware of this one. Stampin Up now offers a scoring tool that makes it a breeze to create multiple score marks. Our new Stampin Up Simply Scored tool has a scoring base that is slightly larger than 12'' x 12'' with vertical scoring grooves every 1/8'', perfect for making itty bitty folds, such as those on rosettes. If you want larger folds, simply score every 1/2 '' , or every 3/8'', or every 1'', well you get the idea. You can choose how far apart you want the score marks to be.

  • The Simply Scored comes with rulers on the top and side and three Place markers (additional Place Markers are sold separately) The place markers come in handy if you're doing multiple projects with the same scoring measurements. Just insert the Place Marker into the slot at the top of the Simply Scored tool and forget about measuring over and over.

  • The 5- 7/16 stylus has a cushioned grip for comfort and a large tip and small tip so you can choose how wide you want the actual score line to be. (You'll need to experiment a bit to determine the correct amount of pressure to apply for different types of paper.

  • There is even a convenient storage compartment in the back of the tool for storing Place Markers, the Stylus, or a Bone folder (sold separately), so you can keep your scoring and folding tools together.

  • Simply Scored can simplify your crafting and give you beautiful results. What could be better than that?

Creating Rosettes.

Rosettes look labor-intensive, but they're deceptively easy to create if you have the right tools and if you know a few tricks.

  1. If you're going to create multiple rosettes, score the entire sheet of paper first and then cut it into strips the size you need.

  2. To make more defined mountain and valley folds, score every other line, then flip the paper over and score the lines in between the ones you just scored. Depending on the thickness of the paper you're using. This could make it easier to fold. Fold the paper in accordion - style pleats.

  3. After you've scored and folded the paper, adhere the ends together to create a circle. The ends folds should be opposite; one should be a mountain fold and one should be a valley fold so the sequence of mountain and valley folds isn't interrupted once the ends are connected.

  4. Squeeze the circle together so it forms a cylinder, the stand it upright and gently push down on the top until it flattens into a rosette.

  5. Use a strong adhesive (like Glue Dots or Multipurpose Liquid Glue) to hold the rosette together. You can put the adhesive directly on your project and put the rosette on top of it.. Or you can punch a small circle and adhere the rosette to it. Please refer to my card that I created with this technique.

  1. Wat een prachtige kaart, Pauline!
    En een hele duidelijke uitleg, kind kan de was doen, hahaha!
    Thanks for sharing!

    En ik zou graag willen dat we dihter bij elkaar woonden, dan was ik zeker op 1 van jouw workshops gekomen...

    Maar wie weet, als ik ooit eens jouw mooie Canada kom bezoeken, staat wel op mijn places-to-go-to-lijstje. :-D

    Liefs, San

  2. very beautiful!!!!! and such charming layout!!!!

  3. Hoi Pauline, Graag wil ik weten wat het formaat is van het papier die je hebt gebruikt voor de rosette? Ik wil al heel lang een rosette maken, en nu durf ik dat ook aan. Heel erg bedankt. Groetjes van Joke.

  4. Hoi Pauline, bedankt voor je berichtje op m'n nieuwe blog! Ik wil je niet teleurstellen door te zeggen dat ik niet bij je wil gaan kijken..
    .. want dat had ik allang gedaan! ik vind je kaarten heel leuk en je staat bij m'n 'favorieten' - eigenlijk al best lang..? Je stijl bevalt me!

    En ik ben een volger van Sandra.. maar op een hele andere manier inderdaad van God.. Ik heb gisteren nog eens mijn 'toekomst' voor Hem neergelegd en bid regelmatig dat SU ook maar eens naar Holland komen 'mag' :D
    Ik zou daar zo graag weer mee verder willen/kunnen.
    Ik heb in Australie gewoond - mijn man is Australisch en daar ben ik demonstratrice geweest wat ik altijd met plezier gedaan heb, en wat 1 van de moeilijkste dingen was om echt te moeten opgeven met mijn verhuizing (terug) naar nederland, alweer bijna 3 jaar geleden..
    Ik wens je vreselijk veel plezier in je 'delen' van dingen: je leven, je leiden en je creatieve uitspattingen.. Als je liever in 't Engels communiceert, dan zeg je 't maar!
    Dit is volgens mij 't langste commentaar op een blog dat ik ooit gepost heb :)
    Ga zo door :)
    En nog over m'n 'gedichtje' - met Sinterklaas in aantocht voel ik mij zeer in rhyming-mode! I do love Sale-A-Bration...!
    Much Love,

  5. Pauline, this is stunning! I have been scared to try rosettes but I'm inspired to try now! Love your color combination!


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
