Stamps sing to me, paper whispers my name. Welcome to all who craft--I hope you're glad you came!
Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and life-long craftin' addict!
I had such a good time at the Masculine cardmaking classes at the Studio this weekend! Everyone enjoyed the designs and discussed to whom they were going to give which one. After the last session, I popped online and made two of them live on Facebook so you can have a little taste, too!
We started simple with the New Horizons paper card above, then added some embossing and a color block layout with Geared-Up Garage (below), then progressed to a complicated die cut card and finished with some scene building layers with Grassy Grove (a big hit here in the Upper Midwest.
Ready to watch? Grab a cuppa and take a little break while I do all the work! You'll be glad you learned these two layouts.
Thanks so much for your support of Song of My Heart on Facebook and everywhere else! When I see a comment from you it just makes my day. I appreciate you!
It's my birthday week, and I've been getting such pretty cards from friends all over the country! I love that they took time to pop one in the mail with a handwritten message inside. Each one is so different, even when sometimes the papers or stamp sets were the same.
Here are five recent beauties I have on display at the studio so everyone can enjoy them!
Don't I have such talented friends?! I'm one lucky lady! I also have talented ENABLING friends who use new toys in such a way that it inspires me to BUY more supplies!!!! Look at that Stitched Greenery background die! Maybe 'll treat myself with some birthday money : )
I can't wait to share what I made with my Suite Sampler this month! The featured collection is the Heart & Home suite from Stampin' Up's spring mini catalog, and it is a gorgeously trendy, white wood Hamptons cottage-style with a timeless vintage vibe. View the collection in my online store!
So as you know, if you've been hanging around Song of My Heart very long, each month I make samples for your inspiration so that you can see how far one of my exclusive Suite Sampler boxes stretch, and get an idea of the potential for all the fabulously coordinating projects possible. This month I made 6 scrapbook page and 14 cards--and I still had paper left over!
Here's some of my favorite projects from February 2022:

What is a Suite Sampler subscription box? Well, basically, I do a little shopping for you! I put together a generous, color-coordinated sampling of products including papers, cardstock, trims and embellishments based around one of Stampin' Up's suites, and mail it to you Priority Mail by the 15th of each month. I work hard on these boxes-- I want you to say WOW--every month!
Each month I use the box contents to create about 15 projects, both cards and pages, to show what you can do with yours! There are no stamps or ink included, so you can either work with what you already own, or decide if you want to purchase the coordinating stamp set and/or dies to go with it all. The flexibility stays in YOUR hands!
The Suite Sampler is NOT A KIT-- your box will be FULL of fun parts and pieces that match with the style and colors of the patterned papers, plus FULL sheets of 12x12 and 8.5 x 11 to coordinate. You can use my inspiration samples as a guide, or set out on your own and see where the mojo takes you!
My Suite Samplers save you TONS of money--because you won't have to purchase full packs of anything in order to try it all! You'll get to enjoy trying out all sorts of suites without a massive investment--and you'll LOVE the shot of mojo every month that a brand new box of irresistibly pretty papers and colors will give you.
