Calypso Coral Valentine

I decided I needed to get out of my comfort zone with color so I experimented with Calypso Coral. This card also gives you a sneak peek at some new DSP offered in the Occasions Catalog (Items available for purchase on January 6th).

I really like the way this card turned out. Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

Cute Boxes from Happy Hello Kit

You won’t believe this…for $2.39 you can make 8 cards OR 16 cute goodie boxes. Yes, check out the Happy Hello Simply Sent Card Kit on the Clearance Rack. It is now selling for $2.39. What a deal!

I made these adorable boxes (CASEd from Connie Stewart) for a get together with two of my fellow demos. They are super quick and of course you can jazz it up as much as you like.

Happy Hello Boxes

Here are the two boxes – one from the card itself and the one on the right from the envelope. The box on the left is filled with Little Debbie snacks…perfect for this stamp sentiment. (P.S. – a sneak peek at what’s in the new Occasions Catalog.) Check out that adorable little bow and the great tag (also both new) .

I am going to order a couple more kits so that I can make these adorable boxes for our church spring craft fair.

I just had to share these with you and show you how Stampin’ Up! truly believes in the motto “Copy and Share Everything”. Connie Stewart is a fellow SU demo and she has FANTASTIC ideas.

Happy Stamping and Have a Happy & Healthy New Year!

December Paper Pumpkin = Super!

The Paper Pumpkin elves have done it again this month. This kit is absolutely super. I sat down the evening after receiving it and couldn’t stop until I made all nine (9) cards. Yes, that’s correct – NINE cards!

PP Happy Bday

Here is the Happy Birthday version. Three of these included. Love those stick on greetings. There is also a stamp for the inside sentiment. I used the leftover sticky paper from the lettering to punch out stars for the envelopes. You’ll see them better in the other photos.

PP Hello

Here’s the Hello card with it’s own sentiment inside. Another group of three. Now you can see the punched out stars better.

PP Thank You

Last three cards are Thank You cards.

Each of these cards have a very clever shaker so that the tiny stars and sequins move around. Love it!

If you haven’t tried Paper Pumpkin yet…what are you waiting for? Are you stumped on a last minute gift or you might want to hint that YOU would really like a subscription. In any event…try it – at least for three months. You manage it yourself so you can stop the subscription when you want. I only ask that you declare me as your SU demo. 🙂

Year End Clearance.2014jpg


Remember…you can only get these products as long as they are available…so if you REALLY want something…order it now.

On Dec. 3rd I attended the Premier of the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. I can hardly wait for you to see them both. You will be able to order from the Occasions Catalog starting January 6, 2015 to June 2, 2015. I was fortunate enough to receive two NEW stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog so I’ll be designing some cards and posting them soon.

Sale-A-Bration is a yearly event. For every $50 spent (from any catalog) between January 6, 2015 and March 31, 2015 you will be able to choose ANY item in the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Catalog for FREE. Yes, you read that correctly…FREE. There are so many awesome products in the SAB Catalog and the ONLY way to get them is by ordering from the Annual Catalog and/or the Occasions Catalog.

GREAT Christmas present idea. Don’t forget that you can ask your family and friends for a Stampin’ Up Gift Certificate from me for any amount. That way you can order the exact products you need and want.

Here’s another Christmas Card design for you to CASE (Copy and Share Everything). Enjoy!

Wonderful Wreath Christmas #1


I love this Stamp Set and Framelits combo…they are my new “go to” combo for all seasons. We used the Wondrous Wreath SS and Wonderful Wreath Framelits at Thanksgiving and I KNOW I’ll be using them for Valentine and Easter Cards as well as Birthday, etc.

Here’s a peek at the inside…

Wonderful Christmas Wreath #2

Just to let you know…this bundle is being carried over so it won’t go away on January 5th.

I know…a lot to digest…but well worth the time to read everything.  🙂

Happy Stamping!


Christmas Greetings & Weekly Deals

Hi stampers…hope you have recuperated from Thanksgiving and are totally into the Christmas spirit. Here’s another card for you along with the fantastic Weekly Deals. Also…today is the last day for the Online Extravaganza and to purchase a Starter Kit for only $74.25.  You have a few more hours.

Christmas Greetings #1

This card looks so simple but since everything is heat embossed the gals in class found it to be a bit more labor intensive but they loved it. We used Gold embossing powder and Pool Party embossing powder.

Christmas Greetings #2

Here’s a close up so you can see how awesome the embossing (both dry and heat) look.

Christmas Greetings #3

This is the embossed sentiment inside.

I used Endless Wishes for the snowflakes and Wondrous Wreath for the sentiment, both Gold and Pool Party Embossing Powders with Whisper White and Pool Party Cardstock and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.

Now…just click on the image and you’ll be ready to order from this weeks Weekly Deals!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now we are all in the Christmas mode – shopping, baking and of course…making Christmas Cards! I’ll be sharing some we did in classes and some I’ve just made since I was a bit short on my own cards. Enjoy and please feel free to CASE (Copy And Share Everything).

Merry & Bright #1

I used Night of Navy Cardstock with Whisper White, Bright & Beautiful SS, Endless Wishes SS, Encore Silver ink, Night of Navy ink, Itty Bitty Accents Star Punch and Silver Glimmer Paper.

Merry & Bright #2

You can see the shimmer of the paper and Silver Encore ink in this shot.

A simple but elegant card.
