Are you ready to see how to paper piece a greeting card that’s Oh, so CUTE?! Let me show you how simple card making can be and how fun!

This is my 1st handmade card from the NEW August-December Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog and boy, I am so excited to share it!

Even though we all like to call this the “holiday” catalog, it’s way more than that!  There are some fantastic stamp sets in it that are not holiday at all. 

Learning how to paper piece a greeting card is easy and a simple way to kick your handmade card up a notch! 


Card making success = “Keep it Simple” –that’s my motto, but remember, simple does not have to mean boring!

Also–you just might learn a silly fun fact about my family in the video!

A Note About Shopping the Stampin’ Up! Online Store

Yesterday Stampin’ Up! rolled out a brand new website….it’s awesome….but different!

If you have shopped online before, your account that you set up will still be there.  But if you had your password saved on your computer and it automatically filled in, it will probably not auto-fill and you will have to enter it.  Did you forget it?  No problem, just do the password reset and then check your email.  If you don’t see the email–check your spam.  

If you have any troubles at all placing your order, please email me at: OR call Stampin’ Up! at 800-782-6787 for immediate help.  Make sure to tell them you are trying to shop with Jackie Bolhuis.

A couple of VERY IMPORTANT things….

  1. When you begin to place your order, make sure it says you are shopping with JACKIE BOLHUIS at the top
  2. When you sign into your previously created account, it will recognize your information, BUT, if your password was set to automatically fill in by your computer, that will probably not work and you will have to enter it (just this first time)
    • Can’t remember your password?  No problem, just click on the RESET PASSWORD
    • You should immediately receive an email with the link and instructions to reset it
    • If you don’t receive the email–check your SPAM

  3. If it’s your first time shopping, you will have the option to check out as a GUEST or CREATE AN ACCOUNT.  Please create an account so that I who you are as you shop with me.  If you don’t create an account, I won’t know who you are and…

    • I won’t be able to help you track or check on your order
    • You won’t earn FREQUENT SHOPPER POINTS towards FREE STAMPS as a thank you for shopping with me
