New Year’s Eve and a SAB Countdown

New Year’s Eve is all about countdowns, right?  What about starting a countdown until Sale-A-Bration (and the new 2016 Occasions Catalog)?

Only 5 days (actually less since I am posting this so late) until you can get super-cool stuff for free with a $50 order!  I love this year’s sets – so many different styles – you’ll bound to find at LEAST one you can’t live without!

Jasmine from Aladdin Card

My adorable niece, Katie, starred in a school production of Aladdin this weekend.  She was cast as Jasmine, the independent princess who falls in love with Aladdin.

She was simply marvelous, and we are so proud of her!  This card features some retired framelits and a retired embossing folder.  I am hoping to create a memory book with her over the holidays for a keepsake.

15th Anniversary Celebration

Fifteen years ago today, I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator to get a little discount on my crafting supplies.

I have been so blessed on this journey with fabulous customers, dedicated downlines, creative fellow demonstrators, and a forward-thinking corporate leadership. They are all perfect pieces to my puzzle. I thank God for them every day!

Stampin’ Up! must be celebrating with me too as TODAY starts the 15% off sale! All stamps are included in the 15% except hostess stamp sets, rotary stamps, and bundle stamp sets.

Shop today until Friday, October 23rd by either emailing or calling me with an order or ordering online using hostess code F9CRWPJS.

Thank you all for being part of my puzzle!

Valentine or Anniversary Card

Yes, I know it Valentine’s Day has passed…but sending love-themed cards in the mail shouldn’t be restricted to one day of the year!

I created this card for some special people this month.

Valentine Heart For You Card


Our new heart embossing folder is a perfect background.  I used the words from the Mini Treat Bag framelit and then used the heart framelits too.  The ribbon was leftover from the Holiday Mini (I loved that ribbon!).  Be sure to pop those hearts with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My Stampin’ Up! Anniversary

It’s hard to believe 14 years ago I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  As many demonstrators can relate, I “only signed up for the discount” was my feeling at the time.  I had no intention of doing parties or teaching others; I just wanted to get my crafting goodies cheap!

Well, here I am 14 years later, and my classes are busier than ever!  I love what I do, and I truly cherish the women I have welcomed into my home and crafting circle.

I started my anniversary celebrations earlier this month – I’m hosting an event in my home plus offering an item for 14% off each week.  I’ve offered some giveaways on my Facebook page already.  Here’s one for readers of my blog:





You will receive this Paper Pumpkin Kit – Party Pennants!  It includes 3 background stamps, 2 inkspots (Summer Starfruit and Pool Party), and all the items to make a cute little banner!  You can use the banner to decorate your hearth, a cake, or take parts of it and use it on cards or scrapbook pages!

Leave a comment on my blog and tell me what you will be celebrating in the coming months!  I’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday evening!

Honeybee Punch Art Card

It’s summertime – and no one really likes having honeybees around.  But creating them using punches and card stock make them much more friendly!

Here’s another swap card I made last month.  I love the vellum wings!  I also used two embossing folders on this card.  Bzzzz….

Something for Baby – Father’s Day Card

Who said you have to create a BABY card with Something for Baby?  The little knotted tie in the stamp set just screams for a Father’s Day card!

With my Chevron embossing folder and the new What’s Up punch, I transformed a baby set into a masculine card.
