Still Scenes and Discounts

Filed under: Projects — December 11, 2019 @ 7:05 am

The Still Scenes is one of my favorite bundles by Stampin’ Up!  The die cuts are so cute! Use this bundle all year long for many occasions.  Get it at 10% off all month,  and (December 11 only) with free shipping too at my shop.

Today’s Tip:

I added scraps of Copper Foil Sheets behind the windows of the church to make them shine.  And the polar bears are cut from Sparkle Glimmer Paper.

Happy crafting,

There’s a great one day sale coming your way with free shipping!

The day – Wednesday December 11

And I sent out some fun project ideas in my newsletter here.

If you don’t already subscribe, better sign up here so you don’t miss anything.

The Christmas Roses bundle is still available, along with the other Christmastime is Here Suite products.  Wednesday would be a perfect time to grab these at free shipping before they are gone.

As you can see, this suite is great for all occasions.   The first card gives you a sneak peek of Heartfelt, a new bundle coming in January.

December Card Class

Filed under: Projects — December 7, 2019 @ 2:10 pm

My CardClass pdfs are ready for another fun class.  I like to do a Fun Fold, a Technique and a Favorite Layout each month.  Where do I get my ideas?  Many project ideas are provided by Stampin’ Up! and many are shared by fellow demonstrators.  After adding my own touch, it’s hard to narrow it down to just a few, so my pdfs always include extra photos of coordinating projects.

This month we will make a cute gift card holder that fastens with velcro.  We’ll also explore ways to darken and lighten cardstock with Versamark and White pigment ink, adding a cute tag. Make this quick New Year note card or use it as a Christmas thank you card.

The class details are on my website calendar.  Can’t make it?  The pdfs are FREE with any purchase this month from my online shop.


If your order is over $50, I’ll also send the pdfs for these 2 popular classes (October and November):

And here’s a clickable smorgasboard of some of the products I used on these classes.

Year-end Closeout Sale

Filed under: Projects — December 3, 2019 @ 4:09 pm

It’s hard to believe, but the Holiday Catalog period is coming to a close.  It officially ends January 2nd, but already some items have sold out, because it was such a stellar collection of products this year.  Catch the Closeout sale HERE at my shop.

The Toile Tidings wrapping paper is included in the sale.  Wrap a gift or make your own gift bags!

The Wrapped in Plaid Suite continues to be very popular.  The paper is still available while supplies last, but will retire.  The Stamp set and punch bundle will be 10% off only through December, as will all the bundles.

Snowman Season is another bundle that will carry over, but not at the discount.   Unfortunately, the paper is sold out.

Do you have someone asking you for a shopping list?  Here you go!

Happy crafting,

Thanks for visiting my STORE.


Christmas Cards and More

Filed under: Projects — November 26, 2019 @ 4:20 pm

Stampin’ Up! has outdone themselves with this Holiday catalog.  Sales have been very strong, in fact several items are sold out already.  The tree punch is in low inventory, so I would grab one quickly.

I’ve made so many different Christmas cards this season that I don’t have time to post them all.  I do have pdfs available with a Stampin’ Up! purchase for these projects from my recent Card Classes:

And here are some lovely project photos provided by Stampin’ Up! for demonstrators to use:

And below is where you can find these product suites.   It’s easy to purchase the items separately and even easier to grab the whole suite.

Stampin’ Up! OnStage

Filed under: Projects — November 20, 2019 @ 5:24 pm

I had a fabulous time at OnStage.  It was great to see Stampin’ Up! demonstrator friends and play with new products.  Here are a few quick photos:

We picked up our bags and a gift at CentreStage – a dinner for leaders.

Hmmm, perhaps some meerkat stamps are in our future!

I love this picture of the new catalogs with my friends in the background hard at work on their #OnStage2019 make&takes.

A few of us in Hartford earned a march across the stage for this milestone award. It only took me 20 years to get there, but it was fun to meet some new friends to share the excitement.

Thank you for supporting my home business!

Christmastime is Here

Filed under: Projects — November 5, 2019 @ 2:44 pm

Here are some more Christmas Rose projects.  Of course, I had to make my purse from the new Designer Series Paper.  I’ll fill these with the cards I made – just wait until my next post for my favorites.

Here’s an easy way to make multiples:  Use the gold-edged cards & envelopes.  Just fussy cut or die cut the large rose clusters from the paper.

And here are a few more projects from Stampin’ Up! artists:

Only available while supplies last, you will want to add this fun suite to your collection.  I would at least get the paper – it is so beautiful.  I’m getting several packages myself!

Christmas Time is Here and Trimmer Too

Filed under: Projects — November 1, 2019 @ 7:48 am

Just look at everything you can get in this brand new suite!

First the stamp set – just wow.

And the dies:

Next the Designer Paper.  I would grab a few packages of this right away.  It has beautiful gold metallic accents and I predict will be the first thing to sell out.  There is also some gorgeous gold ribbon and embellishments.

Here are just a few project you can make with the Christmastime is Here suite.

Did you notice the rose bracelet that is part of the suite?  I love it!

And the new Stampin’ Up! trimmer is finally available too!

You might want to run right over to my online shop!  Or if you want a discount on all your products, add them to your demonstrator starter kit.

Happy crafting,

I mentioned last time that my favorite patterns of Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper are now available in bulk.  And here is a great way to turn it into Christmas Paper!

The secret is to color the flowers with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends.  So easy!
