Welcome back, it's been a busy week as I was rushing around chasing a milestone!!  But I'm so happy to announce that THANKS to my amazing customers and almost 18 years (next week!) as a demonstrator that I have achieved the $300,000 in Career Sales Milestone mark!

I am also trying to get ready for our 1st little trip as Empty Nest-ers!  We are doing a long weekend away with a couple other couples, off to the beach for some sun and relaxing, lots of laughs and great memories to be made I'm sure!  Kind of funny that our girls are just a little jealous as Univ of Arizona does not have a Fall Break - but the great news is that a couple of days after we get home, we will be headed down to Tucson to spend Family Weekend with them!

So for today, here are the items that are on sale this week, WEEKLY DEALS can be placed on any order type and are available at the sale price for a limited quantity.  So a great idea to snag something right away if you want it!  Thanks for placing your order via my ONLINE STORE if you don't already have a demonstrator that you're working with!

Thanks and have a great day!

Weekly Deals - Mini Treat Bag Thinlit

Just wanted to share this weeks WEEKLY DEALS and boy is one of my favorite items on there!  The Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die - oh my gosh, I just LOVE this die!!

Order anytime via my online store, if you have questions or would like a Hostess Code (use to combine orders <$150, so that you can group smaller orders to redeem hostess benefits once you reach $150 or more) - I just need to create the hostess code before you place your order!  No obligation either, if you don't end up placing additional orders later within the 30 days, no problem.

Actually there are a few favorite items on there!  LOVE buttons and the Butterflies Thinlits are awesome too!

Have to run for now, thanks for stopping back in!

Fall Fest, Hello!

Hello again,

Continuing on with more of the projects from Fall Fest - if you've missed any, scroll back to check them out!  This card is so simple but yet it is really, really cute especially in person!  I don't know if it's carrying over how cute it is in the picture!  This is a side fold card and the front panel is cut short, and then a card from the MOMENTS LIKE THESE Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection is layered for the background.  We used the new Greetings Thinlits for the Hello die cut and completed the panel with a little flag tag greeting and flower punch, added a new metal rimmed pearl to the center to finish it off!  The punched layers on the right are popped up and it serves as the mechanism to hold the card closed - the front panel tucks in under the flower!

Again, another adorable and relatively easy card, mostly punches and 1 stamped image!  Not much simpler than that folks!!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Fall Fest, Awesome Friend

Hello there!

Here we are with one of my favorite SIMPLE cards from our Fall Fest event.  It features a band from the MOMENTS LIKE THESE Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection that is layered over some background stamping with the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.  Such a subtle simple color scheme but to me the card really pops and it's really pretty in person!

For this particular Fall Fest we featured FIVE stamp sets in total along with a variety of other items like the PLxSU card collection kit and a dsp stack sampler.  We try to use all of the items across all of the sets to really show how versatile and complimentary our product offering can be.

Join us sometime if you are in the Phoenix area!

Fall Fest, follow your heart!


Here we are with another one of the projects from Fall Fest that featured the MOMENTS LIKE THESE Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection!  These were super fun and quick to make!  I think I have a new favorite go to method now for quick but adorable cards!

This card uses 2 cards from the collection, and we have just trimmed the red hearts pattern to fit above the black dotted card panel, combining two cards for a quick and great background for our adorable little trailer image from You're Sublime!  Again stamped on the Shimmery White and watercolored in our image and popped it up!

Come back for more!

Fall Fest, Happiness


I wanted to share with you some of the other projects that we made at our recent Fall Fest event.  One of the items that the guests received in their Goodie Bag was the MOMENTS LIKE THESE Project Life by Stampin' Up! card collection.  It was our intent to showcase these in a non memory keeping way that might appeal to card makers and stampers.  I love the color scheme from these cards, the Black and White just makes everything pop, no matter what you put with it!

 Here we used one of the cards as it comes and added it to a precut-scored Notecard and Envelope cards.  We added a touch of silver with the new Metallic Doilies and stamped some of the flowers and leaves from Birthday Blossoms on the Shimmery White cardstock.  Then we colored them in with the Classic Inks and Aqua Painter, punched or trimmed out by fussy-cutting!  Add a dimensional or two and tah-dah!  Lovely!!

Thanks!  Check back for more!

Fall Fest Holiday Suite!

Welcome back!  Thanks for popping in today, I appreciate it!  Today I have our cute little Basket Tote of Holiday goodness to share with you!  This packaging featured the Lots of Joy stamp set and the Merry Moments DSP, partnered with our Note Cards & Envelopes!  I was a bit worried about whether the Basket Tote would be enjoyed or not ... as not everyone likes 3D type projects -- but seriously it is so easy to put together, I was relieved to hear many say it was a favorite project of the day!  And one they'd repeat at home!!

Four Note cards & Envelopes in Holiday Tote Basket

Lots of Joy & Merry Moments DSP & Tree Punch

Lots of Joy & Merry Moments DSP & Decorative Label & 1-3/8" Circle Punch

Lots of Joy & Merry Moments DSP & Silver Ribbon & Sequins

Lots of Joy & Merry Moments DSP & Tree Punch

We followed the TOTE BASKET instructions from Buckeye Inklings

If you are interested in any of the items shown here, you can shop 24/7 in my online store!

Thanks and see you again tomorrow!

Paper Pumpkin Bonus Ideas


I wanted to share with you today something that I do for my customers that subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin through me.  First off I guess I should explain what MPP is!  It's a monthly subscription service that ships direct to your door once a month and includes a cute little 'surprise' stamping project intended for 30-60 minutes of fun and creativity!  So it might be cards (quite frequently but not always), gift packaging or even a 3D decor type item (once in awhile).  Part of the fun is that it's like getting a stamping grab bag in the mail!

  • It contains pretty much everything you need to complete it!   
  • color pictures of the designed projects along with instructions.
  • the stamps, ink spots (small ink pads), pre-cut paper pieces
  • even the dimensionals to pop things up
  • A clear block is included along with your 1st months shipment to use with your stamps.
  • Just add your own scissors and regular adhesive.
I have teamed up with several other demonstrator friends and we each design a project and write out step-by-step instructions (including measurements if needed!) and then it's complied into a multi-page, multi-project (8-10+) PDF and personally emailed out to our own subscribers as an exclusive bonus!  We do ask that the file not be shared and our ideas are not blogged either, so yes it's truly something extra to help you see lots of other ideas than what the kit originated as!

Are you interested in getting started?  Would you like to try it and save 50% off your 1st TWO months?  Want to the fine print details?

  • $19.95 per month plus tax (shipping is included)
  • month-to-month and bills/ships just after the 10th of each month
  • you can cancel at anytime or set subscription to "0" to skip a month
  • you can also purchase pre-paid subscriptions for 1, 3, 6 or 12 months and pay all at once and renew when you run out
  • subscribers are able to take advantage of Past Kit availability and order extras of your favorites or ones that might have shipped before you joined!
  • SU! has committed that ink spots (small ink pads) will not repeat the same colors within a 12 month period.
  • all stamp sets shipped in MPP kits are exclusive and not available for purchase elsewhere
  • 50% off 1st two months for NEW subscribers when you join by Sep 10th and use the promo code HALFOFF 

CLICK HERE TO JOIN NOW          HALFOFF code ends on Sep 10th!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back later with one of my latest swap cards!  So yes, we'll move along to the fun but hey, saving 50% is pretty fun too & getting bonus ideas for FREE, heck yeah!

Happy Stamping!
