Stamp, Scrap, Craft Blog Tour


Hello Stamping Friends,

I am participating in another great blog hop today that you be certain to give you inspiration to go and create some awesome projects of your own. Below you will find the list of people that are participating in the hop, just click on a name and see what they have to share. All projects are inspired by new products found in the 2017-2018 Catalog.


I chose to use the fun new set Pocketful of Sunshine for my card. The pocket is so fun and can be filled with so many things; a gift card, good 'ole fashioned cash, or even some small treats. For this card, I wanted it to look like a pair of jeans with the back pocket. The green would be the shirt that is tucked into the jeans. What do you think, does it look like jeans?

Of course, I needed to use the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and insert a pair of sunglasses to protect from all that sunshine.  The thinlits make it so easy to cut out the pocket and the sunglasses. This is a great set that I can't wait to use more.

Don't forget to keep on hopping by clicking the next name under mine.

Is Signing Up as a hobby or business demonstrator for you?
1.  It may be for you if you dislike paying shipping on your orders you place as a customer.  As a demonstrator, you save around 20% with each order.  (you get a higher discount as your orders/sales increase that month), When I joined Stampin' Up! 16 years ago it was because I wanted to get the discount on each order.   The 20% instant income/discount saves a bunch! I have no regrets.
2. It may be for you if you don’t mind placing your own orders.  Some basic computer skills are needed but it’s easy to do and I will walk you through the process if you'd lie.  Stampin' Up! is even willing to have you call your orders in and they will happily help  you place the order over the phone. 
3.  It may be for you if want to buy new stamps and products early!  With every new catalog, demonstrators get to order a month early. For example, the Holiday Catalog will be making it's big debut on September 1st. As a demonstrator, you get to see it the end of July (online only) and then you can preorder on August 1st the items you NEED to have.  If you can't wait to get new things, join the family and get them earlier than everyone else!
If you already know you want to sign up, you can go directly to my Join page HERE

All About the Animals

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Friday to all of you. It's time for another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping. This week the theme is all about the animals. There are a lot of animal lovers out there, right? Is your favorite: a cat, a dog, a bunny, or something else?

As a child, I used to love watching swans gliding gracefully over water. Big, white birds that just floated and looked so elegant. I was fascinated by them.


Isn't this a pretty card? Can't you just see the swan gliding? I love it. Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more ideas using animals.

Have a great weekend.

For the Love of Paper & Ribbon

Hello Stamping Friends,

I am doing a round of ribbon and designer series paper shares. If you love ribbon and/or designer series paper, this is definitely for you. You will get a small sampling of all the new ribbon and/or designer series paper for a fraction of the price of what it would be to order all of them. It's a great way to get it all to see which ones you really like and then you can order those specific packs of paper or spools of ribbon.

If you were to order all of the ribbon and designer series paper yourself, it would be over $600.


This is not all of the designer series paper you will get. It's just a sampling of them. You will receive over 160 pieces of 6x6 paper for just $26.


This is not all of the ribbon, it is just a sampling of each one you would get as part of the ribbon share. You will receive 81 yards of ribbon/twine for $45.

Sign up for one or both of these shares by calling or emailing me to let me know you are interested.

Let's Hear it for the Red, White & Blue

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Friday! Happy end of June! Happy beginning of 4th of July Festivities!  A whole lot of happy going on here. Since it's Friday, that also means it's time for a post with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are focusing on the Red, White & Blue. Pretty appropriate for the time of year.


For my card, I decided not to use any stamps. I know a lot of people don't necessarily have patriotic stamps on hand to make a card, so I wanted to show you you can still make one without using any stamps.  I used Night of Navy, Whisper White, & Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I cut the stripes from cherry cobbler to be 1/2" wide and placed them on a sheet of white cardstock that is 4"x 5"1/4". I then used one of the heart framelits to cut a heart out and the star came from the popcorn die thinlits. The heart is attached to the card using dimensionals.

To finish the card off, I used a basic black marker to add some doodle designs. I'm really happy with the finished look. It turned out just like what I had envisioned in my head. (We all know that doesn't always work out, lol)


Don't forget the awesome promotion for first time Paper Pumpkin subscribers that is only valid until midnight tonight (June 30). Try it out for 75% off the regular price.  You will get an awesome craft kit delivered right to your door with all the supplies you need to make great craft projects/cards.

AND ONE LAST THING BEFORE I GO TODAY:

Retired Stamp and Accessory Sale (2 Days Left)

Whether you weren’t able to make the bingo or you want to shop again, you aren’t going to want to miss this event. I have added over 70 new stamp sets and many, many great accessories since the night of the bingo as well. If you didn't get the new 2017-2018 catalog yet, this would be a great time to stop by and grab one. Plu

FREE GIFT to all who come and purchase from the retired tables too. You're not going to want to miss this.
