August 11 Weekly Deals

New weekly deals are here! Check them out!

I love the clothes pins. I just placed my holiday catalog pre-order and had to add a package of those on to my order. I love adding them to treat bags like this one:

I am so excited that I was finally able to decide on a few things to buy for my holiday catalog pre-order. If you haven’t seen the catalog, oh my…everyone is saying how they are either going to have the hardest time deciding what to buy, or they are going to spend all of their money! This is one of the better catalogs Stampin’ Up! has put out recently, in my opinion. For my pre-order, I decided to stick with Halloween items. Stay tuned because I am planning a series of Halloween how-to videos that will make use of things from the new holiday catalog. The series will start in September, so check back soon!

New Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration are Here!

It’s a new year and it’s time for a new mini catalog! The Occasions catalog is basically a spring catalog with stamps and products related to Valentine’s Day, Easter, Birthdays and more. This year’s catalog has a variety of styles, so there is something to suit everyone’s tastes and styles.

What’s even more exciting is Sale-a-bration starts today too! During Sale-a-bration (January 6 – March 31, 2015), you will get to pick out a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog for every $50 of products you purchase. To download a PDF of the Sale-a-bration catalog, click here. You will find lots of cute stamps and even some new Blendabilities you can get free!

Sale-a-bration is also a great time to sign up as a demonstrator. To become a demonstrator, you buy the “starter kit”. It costs $99, but you get to pick out $125 worth of products. AND you get to pick out 2 free Sale-a-bration items when you sign up!

Sale-a-bration is also a great time to host a party. You will get an extra $25 to spend when your party sales reach $250.

It’s an exciting time for Stampin’ Up and their fans! Contact me if you would like a paper copy of any of the catalogs, if you’d like to become a demonstrator, or if you’d like to host a party.

Thanks for stopping by!


Christmas Tag Top Note Bag

This is a project I made for a class I had when the holdiay catalog launched. I think this would make a great and practical gift for friends or coworkers around the holiday season.

I sandwiched a trimmed down small paper bag between 2 top-note die cuts. I then used the small oval punch to make the handles.

Season’s Greetings Star Christmas Card

I went to an event last weekend called “Unite and Excite”. It is an event Stampin’ Up holds for demonstrators to connect with other demonstrators and learn a few things while having a lot of fun. The day after this event, my upline hosted a stamping retreat. I had such a great weekend! I learned a lot and got a lot of new project ideas.

As with any stamping event, there was a swap! Here is the card I made for the swap. I got a lot of great swaps in exchange!


Here are the steps to make this card:

  • Attach a piece of DSP measuring 4” x 5-1/4” to Whisper White card base with snail.
  • Cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock with second smallest Deco Label Framelit.
  • Stamp star with gold metallic Encore ink. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and emboss with heat tool. Cut out star with Framelit.
  • Stamp “Season’s Greetings” in Cherry Cobbler ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 3-1/4“ x 3/4”. Mat with a piece of gold foil paper measuring 3-1/2” x 1”. Use Tombow to attach whisper white piece to gold foil. Use Tombow to attach to gold star. Attach to Deco Label with Dimensionals.
  • Layer ribbon with sequin trim and attach to back of Deco Label with glue dots.
  • Attach Deco Label to card base with Dimensionals.

And here are the supplies I used to create this card:

Day of Celebration Card

This is a card I made for my club members to make. I also used it as a swap card for a swap I recently participated in. I love how the yellow polka dot embossed background really pops on the black card base. I finally got the chalk talk framelits and the new stamp set that goes with them and loooooove both! Thanks for stopping by!
