September Craft Project Central – Coffee Break Gift Ensemble

I’ve been asked to design again for Craft Project Central! My project is coming up later in the month, but the first project is here today and designed by Liz Miller from Stampin with Liz.

Some people firmly believe that coffee is life and whether that’s you or not, you certainly know someone who feels that way. With this tutorial, create a gift that evokes a feeling that is about catching up with good friends or just starting your day off right featuring the Coffee Café Stamp Set. This would make a quick and easy class project or hostess gift! Make one to gift to a friend or keep it just for yourself. So, go and grab a cup of coffee (or water if that’s your thing), and start creating.

To get access to this tutorial, sign up for a Craft Project Central membership. And be sure to check back on September 23. That’s when my project goes live and I will be giving away a free month subscription to Craft Project Central!

Card Designs for World Card Making Day

My sister-in-law and downline, Ashley, are having a World Cardmaking Day event this weekend. These are the cards we designed and CASEd for our event. If you live near Oklahoma City, I’d love to have you come make cards with us Saturday. You can see all of the details on my Facebook event page. If you don’t live nearby, please feel free to use these cards as inspiration to celebrate the day where you live! I’d love to see your creations!

2016-2017 Annual Catalog is Live

The 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog is here! As a demonstrator, I was able to see the catalog early and have been poring over it for weeks! I am placing my order today. I am in love with this stamp set:


Isn’t this mason jar set the cutest?! There is a matching framelit too. I can imagine tons of Summer and Fall projects using this set. There is a bundle deal where you can get the stamp set and framelit for 10% off. As soon as I get my order in, I will be duplicating and making a tutorial on how to make the “spread the love” shaker card below.

142342O2 142342O3

Another awesome thing in this catalog are the all inclusive kits. These kits come with everything you need to make a bunch of cards and INCLUDE the stamp set! My favorite is the Oh Happy Day Card Kit.


One final highlight of the new catalog that I am so excited about is the foam adhesive strips. Shaker cards are all the rage right now and these strips will make these cards so much easier to put together!


If you are a local customer, I am having a launch party on June 11 from 1-4. You can come pick up a free catalog that day. If you are out of town or aren’t able to make it on June 11, please contact me and I will make sure you get a new catalog. In the meantime, you can view the catalog by clicking here.

Happy browsing!

Retiring List is Here with Discounts

retiring list is here, farewell to many items

A new annual catalog is launching on June 1! That means a whole bunch of items are retiring. Several items are discounted but are only available while supplies last. Click here to view the entire retiring list.

We will also be losing the 2014-2016 In Colors, but we will also be gaining 5 NEW In Colors for 2016-2018. I can tell you that the names of the new In Colors will be: Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum.

And here is a sneak peek of them!
retiring list, but new In Colors coming soon

I have a feeling a lot of Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach will be in my summer projects!

15% Off Stamp Sets


Stamp sales are the best sales! This week, Stampin’ Up! stamp sets are 15% off! The only exclusions are hostess sets, rotary stamps and bundled stamps (those are already discounted). Every other stamp set is included with no limits and no minimum purchase required!

I am also offering an extra bonus. If you use the hostess code 9CYQGXPW I will send a goodie to you in the mail and enter you into a drawing to win a $15 gift card! Make sure you don’t choose “no contact” when you checkout, otherwise I won’t be able to see your name and address to send you your goodie. If your order is over $150, there is no need to enter the hostess code.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy bargain shopping!

For the New Two 4×4 Wedding Card

One of my friends is getting married today! I made this card to give her. It uses some retired products, but the stamp set is still available. I thought it was extra special because after she is married, her last name will change to “New”!


The card base is 4″x4″, and I layered a 3-3/4×3-3/4 decorated piece of card stock on top with dimensionals. Since I don’t have a 4×4 envelope, I used some (retired) DSP and my envelope punch board to create a custom envelope for the card.

Supplies Used

September Paper Pumpkin

If you are a paper pumpkin subscriber, you should have received your kit. Look at the tutorial video below for instructions and to see how cute this month’s project is! These are perfect for coworkers or classmates. And you can get the refill kit for $8 if you need more than 8.

Stamp Out Breast Cancer with Paper Pumpkin

If you are a current Paper Pumpkin Subscriber in the month of October, Stampin’ Up! will be donating $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. If you aren’t a current subscriber, sign up by October 10th and Stampin’ up will donate $2 to the Foundation on your behalf!


Stampin’ Up! clarified that the October kit will NOT be pink. I would guess that October’s kit will be Thanksgiving or Thankful themed. It seems that if there is a major holiday coming up, we will get a kit that features that theme the month before.

Thanks for stopping by!
