Final Countdown

Hi everyone!  We are into the final countdown to the end of Sale-a-Bration.  Some of the Sale-a-Bration items are already gone!!  The Card Tin and the Glimmer paper have sold out!  Stampin' Up! decided to add a few items from the Occasions Catalog to make up for the shortfall.  Here are some new items that you can choose from as your FREE gift with $50 purchase.
There are a lot of goodies here!  I really like the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and the Designer Series Papers!  I may just end up with another pack of Tasty Treats before this week is over!  Below is the official promotional photo so you can see some of the items.  Don't you just love those papers?  I do!! Contact me with any questions!!

Easter Egg Card

Hi everyone!  Today I wanted to share an updated version of an old card.  I have made this card several times over the years with various stamp sets, which have been since discontinued, so I thought I would revisit it with some new stamps.
It's a fun little card with a pocket incase you want to add some cash or gift card.

I used the Little Cuties stamp set which has that cute chick, but also those sweet bunny ears!! Aren't they cute?  I made a version with or without the ears, but I have to say I like the ears on better!
The papers used here are Succulent Garden and Mint Macaron.

I also made a version with this funny bird from the Sale-a-Bration set "Hey Chick!" 
The "You're Eggstrodinary" stamp is from Greatest Greetings.

The Hey chick stamp set is only available for a limited time as part of Sale-a-Bratoin. You can get it FREE with a $50 purchase.  Sale-a-Bration is almost over. It ends on March 31st.  If you are interested in this set, you should act quickly. 
Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Cupcakes and Carousels

Hi Everyone!  Today I wanted to share a card we made recently at my Stamp Camp.   I thought the stamps in the Carousel Birthday set were really pretty, and I wanted to make a card with the Ferris wheel since I do love to ride on them! And who wouldn't want one with cupcakes?

I really love the papers in the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack, and I knew I had to use them at Stamp Camp.  The colors are right up my alley and the patterns are super fun!

The whole Cupcakes and Carousels suite is fun and it is great for parties and events.  There are papers, the stamp set, and an embellishment kit that all work together for some great projects.

The dies from the Lift Me Up framelits are made to coordinate with the cupcakes on the Ferris wheel.

One of the clouds makes the frosting, and the Hot Air Balloon's basket makes the cupcake liner.
I love how Stampin' Up! makes products that can do double duty!

I made a quick video for this card, you can click the link below!
Sale-a-Bration has just a few days left! Purchase products from any current Stampin' Up! catalog, including the Clearance Rack, and for each $50 you spend, you can choose one of the Sale-a-Bration products FREE!!  You can see them all here.

Paper Pumpkin + Sale-a-Bration+ ME = A GREAT DEAL

Paper Pumpkin is a fun way to get a little crafting into your life. You don't need to have a craft room or a lot of tools and supplies. With Paper Pumpkin, everything you need is right in the box, except sometimes scissors, and I know you all have scissors right?  The Paper Pumpkin kits are meant to be a fun crafting break and are not hard kits.  They all include a fun stamp set, which you can use again and again, and an ink spot. Over time, you will have a nice little collection of sentiment stamps and images, as well as ink colors, so you can make a card or send a cute note to someone anytime if you choose. Or, you can buy refills of the kits that don't include the stamps and ink, just the paper parts, so you can make more of you favorite kits!
Sale-a-Bration is a GREAT time to start getting Paper Pumpkin because you will be able to save a bit on the kits, as well as qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration product if you buy a 3month or longer Pre-Paid subscription.  You can get 3, 6 or 12 months subscriptions and qualify for 1, 2, or 4 FREE products from the Sale-a-Bration offering if you join by the end of March!!  AND, to sweeten the deal just a bit, I will send you a FREE Paper Pumpkin Scrap bin when you purchase a 6 or 12 month Pre-Paid subscription by March 31st. 
There is also a Paper Pumpkin fan page on Facebook where people share projects made with the kit contents and other ways to use the stamps.  There is also a Pinterest page for Paper Pumpkin that shows each months project, and other things made with it.  Each month a video comes out showing you how to put together your kit if you need any help.
There is also a YouTube channel!  You can't go wrong.  When your pre-paid subscription ends, you wont be automatically re-enrolled, so there is no risk of forgetting to cancel.  You will get an email asking if you want to rejoin, and you will!
If you sign up by March 10th,  you will get the kits starting with the March kit. If you purchase after March 10th, your first kit will arrive in April.  And, April's kit is going to be fun!! It was designed by our own CEO Sara Dougalss!!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding Paper Pumpkin, or any Stampin" Up! Products!

Last Month to Sale-a-Brate!

There is just one month left of Sale-a-Bration!!  Now is the best time to get those items on your wish list, or purchase cardstock colors you are running low on, because you will also get a FREE Sale-a-Bration item for every $50 you spend! And there are so many great items to choose from!
 I love the tin to organize your cards.  I also have to admit to getting a couple packs of that super pretty Glimmer Paper!  And I can always use ribbon!!

Did you know that a new Stampin' Up! catalog is coming soon? June 1st starts a new Catalog year for Stampin' Up! and that means a change out of the 2015-2017 InColor collection! I don't know what the new colors are, but we will be saying goodbye to Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder, Delightful Dijon and Cucumber Crush!  Retiring colors sell out really fast so if you need any cardstock or ink refills, it's best to get them now before they go on 'While supplies last" status in April.

Is your wish list really long?  Then consider joining SU!  If you join Stampin' Up! during March, you will get $125 worth of product for just $99 PLUS TWO ADDITIONAL STAMP SETS! PLUS a sample Paper Pumpkin Kit!  Once you are a demonstrator you place your own orders right away and take advantage of your discount, as well as Sale-a-Bration!  You will also get the new catalog in May and have access to new products a month before they go live!  There is no downside! You can stop at anytime.  You don't have to buy more unless you want to. If you join in March, you don't need to meet a quota of $300 until the end of June! if you don't, nothing happens. You get an email saying you didn't reach your goal, and you are given 30 days notice, and then you are dropped from the rolls of active demonstrator.  No forced products will arrive at your door, no pesky pushy calls. It's all up to you.  Of course we hope you will love your Stampin' Up! products and want more.  And we think you will love the perks of getting things at a discount, the fun project ideas, the online community of demos sharing their ideas and tips, and more.  Contact me today or click the Join button under my blog header!

Floral Wreath Page with Flower Patch Stamp set

Hi Everyone!  Today I wanted to share a scrapbook page! I haven't shared one in a while, so I felt a nice sense of accomplishment that I did a page today!

I used a stamp set called Flower Patch and a Framelit die set called Flower Fair that is meant to go with the stamp set. The stamp set is Photopolymer and so I was able to bend the stem and get it to stamp nicely around a plate to get my circle.  I made a video with some tips and tricks.
