I'm here with another Tuesday Tip – designed to make your crafting more quick and easy!

I love the fact that Stampin' Up!'s colours all coordinate – you know that the Real Red cardstock will match the shade of the Real Red Ink Pad and the Real Red Stampin' Write marker, and the Real Red ribbon etc etc – or at least you know it won't be a totally different tone of red.

I admit that I am a bit of a lazy crafter as well – why should I go to all the trouble of figuring out what colours go together when I could use my Colour Coach…or even better, just use the colours that Stampin' Up! uses in the Designer Series Papers?! To that end, here's today's Tuesday Tip, that some of you organized types may have already figured out. I think I've mentioned in the past that Oprah has her "aha" moments, and I tend to have my "well, DUH" moments…




Stampin' Up! very nicely tells us what colours are used in the Designer Series Paper images – it's listed in the catalogues under each DSP. My tip – write those colours down on the backing sheet in the DSP package! That way, you don't have to (a) look at the paper and try to guess what colours they used OR (b) try to find your catalogue that's buried under the avalanche of discarded cardstocks that don't match the DSP when you thought they did.

Simple and easy, makes crafting so much more enjoyable!


Hope all my Canadian friends and family (and ex-pats!) were able to enjoy the beautiful colours of the long weekend while celebrating Thanksgiving.

Don't forget that I have an Opportunity Night tomorrow at 7pm here in Burlington ON. If you're interested in attending, please RSVP ASAP! It's a great time to start your own Stampin' Up! business. (I know, I say that all the time, but it's true!!). For my other upcoming events, don't forget to check my events page. Hope to see you soon!
