Daisy Thanks!

Posted by on Aug 23, 2017 in Big Shot, Kits, Thanks

Did you know the Daisy punch is the most popular punch that Stampin’ Up has had in the last five years!  Is it a wonder that since the new 2017-18 catalogue was released in June, that it has gone into back order status several times? I watched a Facebook Live episode by Tami White and Linda Collins and they featured Daisy samples on their show.  This is one of the cards they shared.  Although I made some changes, the layout is the same.  These are the Thank You cards I made for my customers this month.  I even stamped a daisy on the envelope. Besides preparing for classes and making thank you cards, I’ve also been working on projects for the Retreat in September!  Designing, photos of projects and steps as needed, preparing kits and tutorials and more.  I also sent out an e-mail to announce that The Retreat in a Box is available for purchase for $100.  If you weren’t able to attend the Retreat in September, the Retreat in a Box is your next best option.  Already, half of the boxes available are sold so if you know of anyone that might be interested in getting a box, let them know as soon as possible.  If you’ve already purchased your box, you are in for a treat and will be delighted with all the contents and amazing value! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Tiny Treat Box

Posted by on Aug 15, 2017 in 3D, Thanks

These tiny treat boxes are just the perfect size for a little treat!  Assembly of the boxes is easy, they are sturdy and easy to decorate!  In today’s sample, I added a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, 1″ x 9″ and wrapped it around the box.  Then I added a Night of Navy Starburst punch and a layered circle on top, stamped with two small daisies and a sentiment.  The Daffodil 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon around the box tied in a bow and two Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes tie this box together perfectly. Thanks for visiting today.  Hope you can come back tomorrow to see another sample or two of how to use this tiny treat box.  Happy...

Delightful Daisy Thank You

Posted by on Aug 7, 2017 in Thanks

The Daisy Bundle is finally available with back orders caught up so I thought I’d share some cards I made using this bundle.  The three cards are identical in elements, however, the colors and Designer Series Paper have been changed which give each card it’s own unique look.  Which one do you like best?  Old Olive, Pool Party or Lemon Lime Twist? I had a lot of fun making these cards:  the Old Olive card is CASED from the Stampin’ Up Online Extras that are available to Demonstrators.  After making the first one, I started playing. Besides crafting, I also updated my calendar and added scheduled events for August, September and October.  I have even started making some samples for up coming classes using new products from the Holiday Catalogue which Demonstrators can order from one month before the catalogue goes live.  I was blessed, however, to receive a lot of products in Thailand on the Stampin’ Up Incentive trip and we got the Holiday catalogue there as well so we could start planning a little early. I’m almost bursting at the seams with project ideas as Carolanne and I continue planning and preparing for the Holiday Escape and Create Retreat in September.  Two spots have become available for this retreat so if you or anyone you know would be interested in attending, please contact me as they will be gone soon! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

This adorable 3 x 3 card was created by Kim Hawken.  I love the sponged frame, the shading and the stamping.  But there’s more…the inside of the card! A wonderful way to say ‘THANKS!” Thanks to Kim for providing the images for this post!  Have a nice day and happy crafting!...

This Thailand swap card features the Naturally Eclectic Bundle from the 2017-18 Annual Catalogue. The coordinating framelits for this stamp set really help make this card pop!Unfortunately, I do not know who made it, however, if the designer of this card sees this post and comes forward, I would be happy to give credit. Thanks for visiting today! Happy...

Sending You Hugs!

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017 in Birthday, Memory Keeping, Other, Punch Art, Thanks

This adorable swap card was created by Jenni Pauli.  The inside of the card has vellum pockets with card candy in each pocket–ready to put on a card when you need to make a quick card! It is larger than the standard card size but it was absolutely outstanding, decorated tastefully inside and out! If you haven’t guessed, I’m back from Thailand so now it’s time to start crafting again!  I’m excited about tomorrow’s post–my own creation that I made with retired paper, stamps, ink and ribbon for the Adult Special Needs class I’ll be starting to teach this week!  I hope you can come back to see my very own design, which I love! I’m still adjusting to Mountain Standard Time so this post is rather late, so I’ll plan to post earlier...
