Crafting Forever!

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Birthday, Other, Thanks

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...

Eastern Elegance Thank You

Posted by on May 11, 2017 in Big Shot, Thanks

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...

Best Birds

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Big Shot, Birthday, Other, Thanks

Today’s share was inspired by two cards I received recently.  I have changed some elements, colors and stamps but the layout is almost identical.  Plan to attend my Basic Card class this month and make 2 each of both cards.  The colors used are Tip Top Taupe with a hint of Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder, all 2015-2017 In Colors which will be retiring as of May 31. If you like these colors, plan to stock up now as retiring items are only while supplies last and the Retiring List will be published on April 10, only a few days away. Today is also a special day as Stampin’ Up has released a Sneak Peek of a Bundle, Eastern Palace, available for purchase by Customers and Demonstrators effective today.  I will post more information about this special shortly.  Also watch for a class this month featuring this bundle. Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Succulent Thank You!

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Occasions, Sale-a-bration 2017, Thanks

These lovely Note Cards were inspired by Patty Bennett, created with the So Succulent Designer Series Paper and That’s The Tag Bundle from the Occasions catalogue.  I couldn’t resist using the NEW Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, a FREE Sale-a-bration item released on February 21, 2017. The Glimmer paper pack includes 4 each of Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugar Plum and Bermuda Bay (6X6).  This is an amazing product which I plan on using in my classes to the end of the month and to the end of Sale-a-bration! Can you believe there are only 3 weeks of Sale-a-bration left and then it will be gone till 2018!  If you didn’t get all your favorite FREE items yet, don’t delay! Thanks for visiting today.  See you...
