2018 Stampin Up Incentive Trip – Alaska Cruise, my deepest thanks.

Hi Guys! I have been trying to figure out how to share some news with you all… It’s big news!

For weeks I have been thinking about how to share. Thing is, I still don’t know exactly what to say. See, sometimes I am just plain awkward. So I am going to just get out with it.

Stampin Up 2018 Incentive Trip
July 1st I got a Stampin Up customer order. That order gave me the remaining points I needed to achieve the Stampin Up 2018 Incentive Trip to Alaska.

The points will settle on August 6th. I will be able to redeem the all expenses paid cruise for two on the Explorer of the Seas happening in July 2018.

I am still processing.

Thank you!

Stampin Up Wood Crate with Candy Fruits and updates from Kitchen Table Stamper


Hey Guys! I have a really cute Stampin Up Wood Crate with Candy Fruits project tutorial for you today!

I love this farmers market style wooden crate. The crate, made with Stampin Up Wood Crate Framelits, is about 3 1/4 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches deep and tall. It’s got a large capacity and can hold a lot of treats. I wanted to find something that filled the wood crate and was a nice scale to the size of the crate. Because the crate can hold so much, it can get pricey to fill. These Au’some Candy Fruits were the perfect find! I am so pleased with them! I included an Amazon link below if you are interested, check them out.

August Class Update

It continues to be quiet on the blog – I am starting to get back on track after a few weeks of family stuff.

Garden In Bloom Stationary Set

The cards are all made for the August 14th card making class, however the ribbon for the card box is on back order. The set isn’t complete…yet. I will share the project without the ribbon soon if I have too. I want to give you all ample time to get registered. Keep an eye on the blog for the video and registration links.

    Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Covered Note Pad Tutorial

    Colorful Seasons Covered Note Pad
    Hey Guys! I have a fun Stampin Up Colorful Seasons covered note pad tutorial for you today. I made some of these with the new Tranquil Tide 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper to send. They are a quick craft to make a very cute to give.

    I included an Amazon link to the 5 in 1 note pads I used. They are 5 35-sheet tablets in one. You just tear them apart at the chipboard backing and cover them. The 3 1/2 x 5″ size is nice for a purse or a bag.

    I need to get out to the grocery store so I can get dinner done. I volunteered for a meal train for a friend who is fighting breast cancer.

    It continues to be a very full and busy summer. I need to move my caboose. I will be back next week with a couple of tutorials for you if all goes to plan.

    I am thinking the next 4 weeks will be two a week blogs so I can spend some time with the kids before they go back to school. I continue to be just a call or text away (847)922-6795. Thank you for spending some of your summer day with me!

    Colorful Seasons Tonight – Coffee and a Card Wednesday and another quiet week at Kitchen Table Stamper

    Kitchen Table Stamper - Marisa Alvarez
    Hey Guys! It continues to be a busy summer with lots of ups and downs here at Kitchen Table Stamper. I have some house guests until tomorrow so it will continue to be kind of quiet here.

    We have enjoyed a very nice visit. Pictured above, left to right, my husband Max, myself, my cousins Adam and Katherine at Lynfred Winery in Wheeling, IL. Max and I served a bottle of Lynfred Sangria on Saturday night and everyone fell in love. Since Lynfred is local, and special, we took them out to the winery on Sunday. We tasted and they stocked up on some local wines to take home with them.

    Coffee and a Card – Wednesday July 12th

    I know some of you have seen on Facebook, or you know me well enough to know, our family suffered a huge loss this weekend. We are mourning the loss of my mother’s brother, a beloved uncle, who was a big part of my childhood and growing up. We will be remembering him on Wednesday night.

    I still plan on having my usual Coffee and a Card on Wednesday morning, look out for a preview tomorrow. The only difference is that this Wednesday I am going to wrap up Coffee and a Card at noon sharp. I need some time to prepare my children and offer help and support to my aunt and cousins. Thank you for your understanding in advance.

    Please plan on joining me for Coffee and a Card Wednesday from 10 am to 11 am so that we can have enough time to enjoy a coffee and make a card before noon.

    I am just a text or call away if you need me. Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for your support, love and encouragement through broken ankles, holidays, house guests and big huge losses. I appreciate you and I am so grateful.
