Ready to go over the rainbow with this week's Pals Paper Arts Celebrity Color Challenge (PPA63)? Pump up your skills with a delicious blend of Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Melon Mambo. Dawn Olchefske, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, my sweet friend and an incredible architect of paper and ink, gets in on the action as our celebrity guest this week on the PPA design team.

Love the look of the Scallop Trim rectangle on today's card but have never gotten the border and corner punches to cooperate (or never tried)? I hope you can spare a few extra minutes to learn the easiest way I have found to create rectangles (and squares) using the Stampin' Up! Scallop Trim Corner and Border Punches. I went a tad into "overtime" on today's 1 Minute to "WOW" Video Tutorial (4 minutes). However, I was determined to share my favorite tips to help you enjoy your Stampin' Up! products more than ever!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Master one size at a time. Once you have a little "cropping" confidence, the rest of the sizes will flow.
- The bold PPA color combination gets a softer look when paired with plenty of Very Vanilla.
- I'm totally diggin' the Stampin' Up! Cupcake Punch (right down to the confetti it pops out simultaneously). Today's card is a sneak peek from the Occasions Mini Catalog which will go live in January, 2011.
- I have a hard time resisting the urge to create a coordinating envelope. For a quick lesson on lining an envelope, click here for a video tutorial.
