Pineapples & Banners for You

 photo 2016 06-14 Succeed Weekly sans_zps9nbflk0n.jpg

Are you a Stampin' Up! demonstrator?  Then you saw these fab projects in your inbox this morning.

Not a Stampin' Up! demo?  You can easily become one by clicking here.

I made these projects for your viewing and crafting pleasure.

To break down each project set I do, I'm supposed to create a project for the avid, casual, and new stamper.  So smart!  So no matter where you are on the crafting spectrum, you can create these items.

 photo Blog-1_zps5bqkvaux.png  This tag is for the New Stamper.  Nothing on this tag is extra fancy except the outlining on the banner.  And by fancy, I mean, super easy.  Literally draw an outline around the banner to make your words pop.

 photo Blog-2_zpssrxfhopt.png  This watercolored card is for the Casual Stamper.  I used an aqua painter, of course, and the Banners for You Photopolymer Bundle for the rest of the card.  When you buy the Framelits and stamp set together, you save 10%.  Sweet!

 photo Blog-3_zpsntkptr7a.png  This treat bag is for the Avid Stamper.  This project isn't as difficult as it looks.  Stamp your pineapple leaves on Whisper White cardstock a few times and then cut out the different "levels" to make them pop.  I used a bone folder to help curve up the tips.  The pineapple is gorgeous, isn't it?  To get this look, I inked the pineapple in Crushed Curry and then stamped it directly onto watercolor paper.  Because the paper is so uneven, the ink won't apply evenly (this is exactly what you want to happen.)  Before the ink dries, I used my aqua painter (my tool of choice these days) to color in the spots I needed ink by using the ink already on the paper.  This creates different hues of the ink and I think it looks marvelous.
  
Let me know what you think!

Just look up these items, purchase, and they'll be at your house in no time.

*NOTE*  If you purchase from me, I'll mail you a grab bag of goodies.  Jus sayin'.

Swirly Bird Envy

 photo 2016 05-31 Succeed Weekly sans_zps31m2t2jo.jpg

Because I created my own company (Fancy That Jane), I'm able to contract my talents to other companies.  I'm excited to share that I've been doing quite a bit of Contract Work for Stampin' Up! lately.  How fun is that?

If you're a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, then you get to receive a weekly email full of crafting ideas, business tips, promotions, etc.  Today was the first day I was able to showcase some projects I made.

The cool part about being a contracted artist is that I get to see products before everyone else and I get to play with them.  FUN!

To break down each project set I do, I'm supposed to create a project for the avid, casual, and new stamper.  So smart!  So no matter where you are on the crafting spectrum, you can create these items.

 photo Blog-1_zps5bqkvaux.png  This card is for the Avid Stamper.  I had to fussy-cut the bow ties on the kite and I drew the stripes on my paper with my aqua painter.  These simple steps will kick your card up a notch.

 photo Blog-2_zpssrxfhopt.png  This tag for this candy jar is for the Casual Stamper.  I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, trimmed the waves, and added some aqua painting to the waves.  I also trimmed the Scalloped Tag Topper punched tag down because it was just too wide for my project.

 photo Blog-3_zpsntkptr7a.png  This card is for the New Stamper.  No tricky stamping here!  I love how simple yet chic this card is.  It just makes me happy looking at it.  Swirly Bird stamp set, I think I love you.

There's a bundle?  Stawwwwwp!

Fancy That

 photo hello-im-back_zpsne3itqog.png
I've been MIA for a loooooooooong time!  Did you miss me?  I took a break from this blog (and almost all crafting all together) for personal reasons, family reasons, me reasons...  You know how that goes.  I'm excited to say that I'm back.

I'm different.

I've changed.

I'm morphing into a new stage of life.

It's summer break from school and next year all my kiddos will be in school all day.

All.

Day.

I'm leaving the taking-care-of-babies stage behind.  I'm growing up (which is different from being mature - that, I will never be.)

I still love to craft.  That will never change.

With all my other changes in my life, this blog is going to change.

This blog will change and take on a new name and that name shall be:

 photo FTJ-logo-only_zpsyxuaisn7.png 
I'm still the Jane that was a 2-time Artisan Winner.

I'm still the Jane that loves Stampin' Up!.

I'm still the Jane with 3 amazing boys and an extremely supportive husband.

I'm still me.  I'm just enhancing myself now.

I want to craft with more than just Stampin' Up!.  I want to take web design classes (up to this point, I'm self-taught.)  I want to reach more avenues of the crafting world.

You feel me?

Good.  Now make sure you follow all of my new pages and places on social media.

I love you!
