Happiness Is Fresh Vintage

Featured here is another fine stamp set available only during Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration. Choose a free item in the sale-a-bration brochure for every $50 merchandise you purchase. (ie:  Have your own catalog party and spend $150 on merchandise, get 3 sale-a-bration items AND hostess benefits of $25 which you can spend on any catalog items!)  What a great deal!  Ends March 31st.  Fill your shopping cart in my on-line store HERE.

I recently purchased a crimper from Stampin' Up!  I had been wanting one, but was a little apprehensive, because someone had told me that it was a little hard to use and to get the paper straight.  I wish I would have gotten one sooner.  I LOVE IT! My 11 year old daughter can't stop running scrap paper through it! This is my first project using it, but I think it is great.  Those who attended my class were impressed by it as well.

To make this ruffled border, I first punched a strip of 7/8" x 11" Lucky Limeade with the Eyelet Border Punch (119853), then ran it through the Crimper (101618).  If you ease the ridges together along the straight edge, then you can adhere it to the back of the circle as you go.
