New Video: Paper-Piecing with Stampin’ Up!’s For Being You

I’m excited to share a new video and project with you today.  Paper-piecing is a really fun technique that can transform a project from “eh” to “wowzers!”  I’ve been paper-piecing from Day One, but I’ve never really stopped to explain the simple-and-fun technique.  Check it out here:

As I shared in the video, For Being You (one of new Sale-a-Bration items in March) is PERFECT for paper-piecing.  Here’s the card I shared on the video using the new Sale-a-Bration item:

For Being You, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingI love that the words appear to be cut out of the base of the card, but that’s not the case.  I stamped the sentiment on this fun background paper, snipped out each of the large letters, stamped the image on the Whisper White cardfront and then pieced the snipped letters on onto that image.  So easy – especially with these large letters.

I hope you enjoyed this paper-piecing tutorial.   If you’ve never paper-pieced, I hope you’ll give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today!

In Case You Missed It.  I mentioned this in my post on Saturday, but you might have missed it if you weren’t paying attention…Blendabilities have been turned off for now while Stampin’ Up! investigates quality issues.  That means that they can’t be ordered or added as Sale-a-Bration freebies.  For Being You would be wonderful with Blendabilities, but until they are up-and-running again, I’ll be content with paper-piecing the “thanks”.

Four New Sale-a-Bration Items.  Today’s project showcases one of the new items you can earn during Sale-a-Bration in March.  I’m thrilled with all four of these new items – two stamp sets, an accessory pack (with twine and buttons) and a stack of designer vellum.  These are great!  Here’s a peek at the four items you can earn during the month of March for every $50 purchase (click on any of these icons to see the items in my online store):
