Welcome to the World!

I’ve been anxiously waiting to post this project!  I’ve been on pins & needles ever since a friend told me that he was expecting a baby girl that was due in a few weeks!  Well the day finally came, and a sweet little baby girl was born today!  I made this card the day he told me it was a girl.  Now I can finally give it to him, and show you.

Baby Bear is the stamp set that I used to make this realistic, life-like stuffed animal bear.  A triple stamp, I used Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso ink for each layer of the bear to create that realistic effect.  My paper is Flirty Flamingo card stock for the card base, with a Crumb Cake layer.  Flirty Flamingo DSP and another layer of Flirty Flamingo cardstock with a Whisper White image panel.  The sentiments were stamped in Early Espresso ink on Crumb cake banners.  A row of pearls and a bakers twine bow adorn this card.

Any time I used a card base other than Whisper White or Very Vanilla, I like to make an inside panel to write on.  My inside also contains another sentiment, with just enough white space to include a handwritten note.

I used another strip of DSP so the inside and the outside coordinate.  And I just LOVE this sentiment!

Here’s a map of the products I  used to create this card:

I’m so glad that my friend is a Dad with a precious little babe to love and to hold.

Taking Layering to a New Level

Today is the long-awaited for day!  And I’m not just talking about a day off of work!  But today is the day that the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies are back in stock!

145372 Stitched Shapes Framelits

Stitched Shapes Framelits dies – # 145372

The Stitched Shapes Framelit dies were introduced back in November as a teaser of what would be coming in the 2017/2018 Annual catalog to be released in June.  They were so hugely popular that they sold out faster than expected, put on backorder, and then put into a ‘non-orderable’ status  until today.

Why are they so popular, you ask?  What’s the big deal?  Well, I’ll tell you.  This set of 12 (4 each of square, oval and circles) basic geometric shapes have tiny stitching around the edges.  And they pair perfectly with our Layering Framelits in Squares, Ovals & Circles to create perfect layers with just the right amount of detail.    Let’s have a look:  IMG_8339[1]

IMG_8411[1]

Hey Chick

See how the tiny stitches makes the shaped so much more ‘finished’ and adds just the perfect finishing touch to the basic shape?  And how the straight and scallop edges of the layering framelits dies coordinate so perfectly?  The Stitched Shapes Framelits and layering framelits are going to take your layers to a whole new dimension.  And the sizes of the shapes coordinate with so many stamp sets; both images & sentiments.

Now, what if you don’t own any of these basic shape framelit dies.  Can you still get the Stitched Shaped Framelit dies?  YES!!  Having both the layering framelit dies in all the shapes, AND the Stitched Shaped Framelits, will be an investment in tools for your paper crafing that you will have for years & years.  The best way to get all of these?  Ultimate Bundle SAB

When you purchase the Ultimate Starter Kit!  You can choose $125 worth of product for only $99 and not pay any extra for shipping!  But during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll get to choose 2 FREE stamps on top of that!  If you purchase this now, you’ll get a 20% discount on all of your purchases until the end of July 2017!  And you don’t ever have to host a workshop or sell anything if you don’t want to.  Get all the benefits of belonging to the Stampin’ UP! family by being a wholesale customer.  Purchase your Ultimate Starter Kit here.

If you choose not the order the Ultimate Starter Kit!  you can still earn FREE merchandise during Sale-A-Bration.  Just place your order here, and for every $50 you can choose one Sale-A-Bration item for FREE.  Please remember to use Host Code 2BUYMMWN when placing an order under $150.

Thanks for stopping by today.  See you soon!

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for January 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects showcase themes that are “from the heart.” This includes any of the following themes… Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and/or Sympathy. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I think a Love Note tucked into a lunchbox comes straight from the heart!  And look how adorable the new “Sending Love” product suite is for making mini love notes!  The Sealed with Love stamp set, coupled with the Love Notes Framelits (Bundle & Save 10%!) makes cute mini envelopes and notes.

sentwithlove1

Yes, each envelope is a real envelope that holds a real  note.  Here are the notes in each envelope:

sealedwakiss1

Shhhh, don’t say anything but this love note is going to be tucked into my hubby’s lunch today!  He’s been having alot of stress and chaos at work the last 2 days, so I’m sure this will brighten at least a minute of his day!

Here’s another project I made with the ladies in my stamp club last weekend using the same Product Suite.

lovenotes1

Another note tucked in a mini envelope.  But see how this mini envelope is constructed using the new Sending Love Glassine Sheets?  These sheets have a tiny pattern printed on them.

2017 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek

Well, I just got another order delivered today with some more of the new products that are featured in the 2017 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure. Join me as I open the box and see everything inside:

What item am I most interested in playing with? The Water Color Pencils! While I go down into My Stampin’ Space to break out those bad boys and start coloring, you can watch this video to see why I am so excited about these pencils!

First of all, they are Stampin’ Up! colors!!!  If you remember the water color pencils from years ago, they were just generic colors and did not coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! colors. But, these are the colors we know and love!   And when paired with the Inside the Lines Designer Series paper (available for FREE with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration Jan 4 – March 31, 2017) this is going to be a homerun!

The catalogs will be on my blog for your viewing pleasure on Jan. 4th.  If you have ordered from me and consider me your Stampin’ Up! demo, and want a copy of the catalogs in the mail, please request one here.

Until then, don’t forget to shop the Year End Clearance for great deals and savings on some of your favorite items.

mainad_yearendcloseout_olo_naI have more the share with you so come back again tomorrow.  See you then!

A new set of Framelits to ‘die’ for!

At first glance, you just might pass over the “Special Reason Bundle” as another floral stamp set and framelit die set.  But, once you look closer, you’ll see that this die set is like no other.  Stampin’ UP! has just taken their framelit dies to a whole new level.

occ17_p42d

The die is in 2 pieces; one to cut out the detail and the other to cut out the shape.  By using them separately, you can create really cool effects that you can’t do with other standard framelit and thinlit dies.  Watch this video below to see how this works:

See what I mean?  Don’t you just think these are to die for?  I know that you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new catalogs so you can get your hands on them!   As a demo, you can get them now!

I welcome “Wholesale Customers” into my group.  You can join Stampin’ UP! by purchasing the Starter Kit for $99 and choose $125 of products you’ll save $26 right off the bat!)  Then continue to save 20% off all future orders.  Click here for more information or click here to purchase the Starter Kit.     You’ll get all the perks, including early ordering, as a demo, with no pressure to sell anything.  Just keep the discount for yourself!

I can’t wait to share more exciting products and projects with you!

What happened at the Meadowlands?

While most people know the Meadowlands as the place where the NY Giants play,  hundreds of Stampers across the NorthEast gathered together last weekend at the Meadowlands Exposition Center for the Stampin’ Up! convention called OnStage.

I traveled to the OnStage Event in Secaucus, NJ with two of my down-line, and we had a fabulous time!  It was a fun-filled time spent with my downline, and other demo’s from the Northeast.  OnStage included time to see new products, stamp and create with those products, recognition for the top demonstrators (including my upline Mary Fish, #1 Demonstrator in the WORLD!!), training from top leaders at Stampin’ UP! and of course, the new catalogs!

Here I am with Kathy Snyder & Lynn Pahoski enjoying ourselves at the hotel.

img_82271

Look at me!  So surprised and elated to be recognized for Sales, Recruiting and Leadership!

Kathy was recognized for achieving a Quick Start level!  Yah, Kathy!  🙂

Here we are at the table waiting for the fun to begin!

Make & Takes are such a fun part of this event:  We made 4 on Saturday:  xwod11731

That’s the outside, here is the inside!   How exciting; another Pop Up Die!!!

The highlight was the catalog reveal of the 2017 Occasions catalog (January 4 through May 31) and the 2017 Sale-A-Bration catalog (January 4 – March 31).  This is my favorite perk of being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator – I get to see the catalogs BEFORE they are revealed, and order product from those catalogs!  If you want to enjoy this perk yourself, then join me in this incredible Stampin’ Up! Journey!  For the cost of the starter kit, $99, you get all this and more!   Talk to me about getting your starter kit today.  You can join just for the perks, and stay for the discount, or drop without any obligation.

Either way, you’ll want to start saving today, because there are so many fabulous products in these new catalogs, that your wish list is going to be huge.  (BTW – I offer Gift Certificates.   When your loved ones ask what you want for Christmas, tell them you want Stampin’ UP!  – have them contact me to order a gift certificate, or better yet, fill out a Wish List.  List the items you want, or the $ amount of a gift certificate, and the names of people who normally shop for you.  Get your list back to me and I’ll contact your people on your behalf.

Thanks for letting me share my fun trip with you.  I hope that you will consider joining Stampin’ UP! and join me at the next OnStage event in April 2017.  Click here for more information on joining Stampin’ Up!

See you soon,

And I couldn’t be happier!  My blog has been knocked out service since Oct. 19th!!!  I’ve been (patiently) waiting for it to be restored.  And while I was able to have my blog restored, I did lose all of my October blog posts.  A small price to pay, as I was prepared with the possibility of losing everything and having to start all over.

I’ve had the chance to play with one of the soon to be released stamp sets called   Cool Treats.   This is going to be one of my favorite stamp sets.  It’s so fun and playful.  I’ve made my November birthday cards from this set, and it’s so much cheery; I can’t wait until the coordinating product suite gets delivered to me tomorrow.  (Why didn’t I choose Express Shipping?  The wait is so long!)pitk62081

Another stamp set is called “Nailed It”.  I won this stamp set during Prize Patrol, and I am so happy I did.  I made this card for my hubby as soon as I got home.  The sentiment was perfect, and since he’s a woodworker, the tools are perfect for him. saw you
