Year in Review – It was hard to pick out my favorite posts from 2018, but I can’t pass up my travels.  Stampin’ Up! trips are my favorite part of being a demonstrator.  All demonstrators can attend the twice a year OnStage meeting, and the annual Incentive trip (last year an Alaska cruise) can be […]

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Thank You Cards

Posted: Wednesday, December 26th, 2018 @ 10:10 am in Projects | No Comments »

Perhaps a thank you card is due after some nice gifts were received yesterday?  Here’s an easy card we made at my last class.

As you know, the last 2 months of Paper Pumpkin have sold out completely.  This subscription kit by Stampin’ Up! has become so popular!  Why?  Maybe because they have been over the top fabulous lately.  Or maybe because they are supported by a Facebook group and a monthly live video and monthly email with alternate […]

I’ve been sharing a lot of projects with my favorite bundle this season:  Farmhouse Christmas.  I almost forgot to show my class card from September. The Buffalo Check background looks great in lots of color combos.  Here I used white and Sahara Sand to keep it subtle.  My favorite of course, is the classic red […]

Have you seen the red truck with the Christmas tree EVERYWHERE this year?  Well Stampin’ Up! was right on trend with the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and also the Buffalo Check background stamp.  I couldn’t resist these items at the Christmas Tree Shops, although there were similar fun decor pieces in almost all the stores […]
