Last December, I released my very first Class in the Mail kit. You can read about the Class here. This is a picture of the gorgeous card from December's Class. This Class is still available and can be purchased anytime. My plan is to release a new Class in the Mail every other month, which means the next one will be released in February. February is just a couple weeks away and I have been a busy little bee working on ideas for the next … [Read more...] about Classes in the Mail
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
So I mentioned last week that I wasn't so fond the black Holiday paper when I first saw it in the Holiday Catalog. But that I did get it out to use it and was actually very pleased with the results for my card. (Yes, I realize that Christmas has come and gone and I'm sharing yet another Christmas project. But, I wanted to show that you can reuse your great ideas again and again.) We were invited to attend a Christmas party earlier this month … [Read more...] about Black Christmas Part Two!
Now that Christmas has past, I’m in need of some thank you cards to send out. I wanted something quick and easy and mail-able without extra postage. Don’t get me wrong – I love cards with lots of layers and embellishments. But they are typically not something I want to make half a dozen of. And then I take the chance of them being crushed in the mail or requiring extra postage. Ugh. I was looking through the Stampin Up Sale-aBration Catalog … [Read more...] about A Little Thanks Goes A Long Way
December is always a very busy month around here with all the activities going on. I’m sure you struggle with it as well. I always have the best of intentions to hand make our Christmas cards at the beginning of December. I’m usually rushing to finish them and drop them at the post office before they close on 12/24 . This year, the fates were against me and I just couldn’t get to them until right before Christmas. My husband knows that I … [Read more...] about The Best of Intentions
My assistant, Frannie, and I are busy working on some new goodies today. Just in case you haven't met Frannie... this is her all decked out in her Holiday finest: She is quite the dog! She works very hard helping me come up with all these fabulous blog posts. Although I have found that if I turn my back on her she can also be quite the slacker. Apparently any time is nap time. As they say, you get what you pay for. I guess … [Read more...] about Cheap Help is Good To Find
