Bubble Over

If you are a pop drinker or lover of any type of brew, you will enjoy the Bubble Over stamp set and Bottles &  Bubbles Framelits Dies.  There is a matching Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper that is free during Sale-a-bration.  And don’t forget the adorable little Epoxy Shapes – those have been flying […]

UFOs, Taxes, Memories and More

Posted: Tuesday, February 27th, 2018 @ 11:13 am in Projects | No Comments »

I attended several Craft Days (or Crops as they are often called) in January and February and the last one was for an entire weekend.  What fun to be able to craft all day with friends and NOT have to cook or do dishes! I have a whole bunch of projects to share with you […]

My Monthly Class and a freebie

Did you know that I make instruction sheets for each project in my monthly card class?  Place an order any time during the month, and I’ll email you the 3 pdf files.  I’ll even send you a card as well!  I have a bunch left from February which I just finished up at a craft […]

Heartfelt Blooms

Posted: Thursday, February 22nd, 2018 @ 4:27 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Heartfelt Blooms is one of my favorite Sale-abration freebies.  It is a new type of stamp that looks just like a photograph.  Different opacities of ink are laid down at the same time, giving the single stamped image depth that usually takes multiple stamps.  Stampin’ Up! has a patent pending on this new type of […]

Level 2 Sale-a-bration

What on earth is level 2?  Sale-a-bration has been happening every winter for years.  This year Stampin’ Up added an additional level of freebies that can be earned with a $100 purchase (see the first 3 thumbnails at the bottom of this post).   And they are awesome! I had fun playing with the Happy […]

Life is so much better…

…with you in it.  This sentiment from the Petal Palette stamp set is perfect for someone special.  And it’s just how I feel about my Stampin’ Up! team.  It has been a joy to be a team leader and meet so many new friends.   I have a stack of welcome cards for new team […]

Yay You Congrats Card

Congrats by mail is an extra special way to celebrate with a friend.  The Yay You host set from the Occasions catalog is the perfect tool for creating a bunch of cards to share your joy.  This card went to one of my team members who celebrated an accomplishment.  I’d love to celebrate with you […]

Adhesive BOGO

FURTHER UPDATE: In case you are curious, Stampin’ Up sold over 19,000 Fast Fuse adhesive dispensers in 9 hours in North America!!! As it is retiring, only refills are left in the store. I’m amazed at the purchase power of the avid crafter! Why not join my team and get the inside scoop on the […]

Lavender and Valentine’s Day

Posted: Monday, February 5th, 2018 @ 3:46 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Here’s a peek into my creative process. These cards came about because I wanted to use a doily with the Lots of Lavender stamp set. First I decided to sponge the doily to color it.  Then I decided that the stenciled piece of paper underneath was so pretty that I had to make another card […]

Super Bowl Color Challenge

Posted: Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 @ 1:07 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Who knew that there was a website where you can get the color codes for all the sports teams?  I thought it would be fun to do both a color challenge and a special deal featuring the Super Bowl team colors.  It’s all about the colors in the paper crafting world, right?   So the […]
