Can I tell you how much I love making super quick and easy cards? Today's Five Minute card was inspired by one I found on Stampin Up's website. I can't remember the name of the person who shared her cute sample but I loved how she made flowers by combining the scribbled circle from one set with flower petals from another set. In fact, these cards are so quick to make, I've now made about a dozen of these. Plus they are flat which is perfect for … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
Last week I showed you the Precision Base Plate and in that Post, I mentioned another tool called the Big Shot Die Brush. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about this tool since I mentioned it last week and said that you use it in conjunction with the Precision Base Plate. The Big Shot Die Brush was just released in the current Occasions Catalog. The price for the brush is $11 (a little less if you're a Stampin Up … [Read more...] about Work It Wednesday – Big Shot Die Brush
Starting this Friday, I'll be featuring cards that can be made in FIVE minutes. Yep! You read that correct: five minute cards. How awesome is that! Here is the very first one: I'm serious, you can totally make this card in under five minutes. Since I already had the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper out, I decided to use that Product Suite again. Simply cut the pattern paper into a 4"x5.25" piece and adhere to the Mossy Meadow card … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
Quite often I'll wish I had some generic "friend" cards for when I want to mail something to a friend. I could use just a plain envelope and notebook paper, but where's the fun in that? I want my friends to know how special they are to me. When I have time, I'll make four or five of these types of cards to have on hand. This card uses two of the Sale-abration stamp sets: Hello and What I Love. I've been remiss not sharing the Hello stamp set … [Read more...] about Hello! You Were Gone Too Soon…
Have you heard the news? The lottery is up to a crazy amount of money tonight. Something like $1,400,000,000. That’s a heck of a lot of zeros behind that $1,4. It’s so much money, it’s almost scary. My hubby and I are not gamblers and we are not regular lottery players. Nothing against those that are, but we’ve always felt spending our money on a sure thing (like paying for child care or food) was a better use for us. However, with the lottery … [Read more...] about If I win the lottery tonight, I will…
You know how it is… the clock is about to strike midnight and you promised your fairy godmother you’d leave on time. Well, this is just like that except without the big poufy dress and glass slippers. I’d probably break my neck trying to run in glass slippers, assuming that I don’t break the slipper itself and end up with a nasty cut across the bottom of my foot. Yeah, forget the uncomfortable dress and stick with plain old regular slippers. … [Read more...] about Don’t be late or you’ll turn into a pumpkin!
The Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration started yesterday!!! I love this time of year. Every time I buy something, Stampin Up lets me pick out a free goodie. Who am I kidding? I usually get at least two free goodies because I usually can't decide which item I want free so I buy enough to get two (ok, maybe three) free. So, here's how it works: spend $50 pre-tax and shipping and you get to pick out one item for free. Spend $100 pre-tax and … [Read more...] about Did you hear the news?
Exciting news - the brand new Occasions Catalog starts tomorrow and Sale-abration begins too! Yay! This is when Stampin Up gives you free goodies for every $50 increment you spend (pre-tax and shipping). Who doesn't love free stuff? And since you were already going to pick up a few items, you might as well spend $50 so you can get your free item too! Back in November, I attended a Demonstrator Event hosted by Stampin Up and received "Beautiful … [Read more...] about Beautiful Ride
