Next up in my Stampin’ Up Sale-A-Bration series is my favorite Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.  This paper is awesome – heavy, shiny and beautiful.  I noticed today that it’s selling on eBay for $20-$50 a pack – that’s crazy!  You can get it free for just a few more days here. The first 2 […]

I didn’t have time to post much last week.  I was a vendor for Stampin’ Up! at the WCTL Rejoice, Refresh Renew Conference on Saturday.  What a joy it was to see many old friends and share a day together. Look at the sign Brenda made for our card rack: It’s so true that a […]

It’s still snowing in Erie, PA and we are approaching a huge record.  A few more inches and we will be over 200″ and will beat the 1976-77 winter of Buffalo, NY (which I also lived through).  We are at double our yearly average and already past our record high, so what’s a little more […]

The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies by Stampin’ Up! have been a real hit this Sale-a-bration.  I’ve already shown a few ideas and here are some more. For these cards, I diecut the words from the Color Theory paper to give an ombre look.  A simple dry embossed background and some glitter enamel shapes finish the […]
