Lovely As a Tree

Posted by on Jun 20, 2017 in Big Shot, Birthday, Other | 0 comments

This lovely card, created by BJ Garner, is truly a classic in more ways than one!  Lovely as a Tree is the oldest stamp still current that is still available for purchase.  In addition, don’t you love the classic car from Guy Greetings?  Although the Top Note Die is no longer available for purchase, you may have it or another die that would work perfectly to cut out a window sheet for added detail! When stamping on window sheets, because they are non-porous, you need to use a permanent ink like our Black Archival to stamp your images. This card could be used for Father’s Day, which we celebrated last week, or a birthday card for your Dad, or you could use a different stamp to say what you’d like to say…Brother, Uncle, Friend. Thanks for visiting today.  Only four nights left to our Mini Retreat!  Attendees will have an absolutely amazing time.  Watch for posts next week so see the fun and great projects created at this...

Today’s share, created by Shannon Gates, features the Colorful Seasons stamp set, a photopolymer set with 24 images–enough to cover all four seasons, including 6 sentiments, and is complimented by the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  When you purchase this Bundle, you save 10%. I have had a chance to play with this bundle myself and I love all the options it offers!  Stampers attending the Mini Retreat on Saturday will make an amazing project using this bundle.  I will post all the Retreat projects next week and thereafter. Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Yesterday was a very happy day for me!  I received my Travel Package for the Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip to Phuket, Thailand! The adorable little elephants are our luggage tags–so cute!  Plus an itinerary, a nice wallet and name tags!  Don’t you love the ribbon tied around the wallet?  It’s lovely–so soft and easy to work with! Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great week...

Crafting Forever!

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Birthday, Other, Thanks | 0 comments

Crafting Forever is the name of the stamp set Carolanne used to create this lovely card for our June HandiCrafters card swap!  I love all the texture and bling on this card–to see it in person is even better than the picture!  The nature of this card is extremely versatile and could be used for numerous occasions:  thinking of you, thank you, birthday, congratulations…you decide the occasion. As the count down to my Customer Mini Retreat draws near, and preparations are in full swing, I decided to share swap cards as I want to keep the retreat projects a surprise for attendees. Thanks for visiting today.  I’ll be back tomorrow with another swap card and another great...

Happy Anniversary

Posted by on Jun 6, 2017 in Wedding/Anniversary | 0 comments

An Anniversary is a great occasion to Celebrate!  Today’s card uses the NEW Oh My Stars Embossing folder!  Don’t you love it?  The background on this card was created on Watercolor Paper and will be the technique I’ll be sharing with stampers on my next Technique Class, later this week.  I had so much fun playing with color combinations and more, I’m really excited about this class. You may have noticed my lack of posts lately!  The new catalogue, new products, classes, Team gathering and two Mini Retreats this month,  for Demonstrators and Customers are consuming my time!  Carolanne and I are preparing projects with new products, prizes and pillow gifts and more! There are just a few spots left for the Customer Mini on June 24 so if you’d like a day to be pampered, this is the perfect opportunity.  If you need more information, please contact me by telephone, e-mail or text. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Note Pad Gift Set

Posted by on May 24, 2017 in 3D, Punch Art | 0 comments

This lovely note pad gift set was created with the Daisy Suite form the new 2017-18 Stampin’ Up catalogue. Tranquil Tide, a new 2017-19 In Color is featured on this project and you can see I used the Daisy stamp set and Punch. Earlier this week I had a contest and asked two questions: how many daisies did I punch? And how many daisies could I punch out of one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock? There were only two parricipants in the contest so I will send them each a hand made Daisy card created with the Daisy Bundle, Susan Bondville and Welma Breiter. On my next post I will share the card the contest participants will receive.  Thank you for participating and for visiting my blog!  Happy crafting!...

Eastern Elegance Thank You

Posted by on May 11, 2017 in Big Shot, Thanks | 0 comments

Joseph’s Coat Technique is featured on this card created with Eastern Elegance Bundle, a brand new combo that will be available in the 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up catalogue.  This bundle was released to customers one month early before the official catalogue release. Joseph’s coat Technique was the technique this month and what fun stampers had!  Everyone made 3 beautiful cards, all different, using this technique.  The more I stamp and create with this bundle, the more I’m loving it! If you haven’t been to one of my classes recently, you may not be aware of the Mini Retreat I’ve scheduled for June 24.  This will be an All Inclusive all day event that is sure to please all attendees!  Limited spots are available so if you’re wanting to attend, please confirm your spot asap to avoid...
