Using Up Left-overs

Well, all the Christmas cards are made and ready to send, but I have a stack of what I call "this & thats" laying around. You know those things you stamped, cut out, and embossed thinking it was just the right thing for the card you were making and then "oh no! that won't work".. Well, I just can't throw stuff away and I usually toss them in a container and they stay there forever.. well, maybe not that long. This year I decided to keep them right on my desk and MAKE ME use them up and not store them. LOL
So, here is the first one I threw together. Still not one of my favorites but it works. If you put together a card and would like to share it I would love to post it on my blog. Just email me and we will share together. Have a great day!!

Holiday Sale at Stampin Up

Just wanted to send out a little reminder about our sale at Stampin UP. It goes until December 2, but don't wait until the last minute as you could miss out on the big discounts! Remember you can go to my website here to see what's on sale and order  One of the great things for me was that they are even offering discounts on my favorite BUNDLES!!!
If your order is $150 or more you can count it as a party and get Hostess money as well!!! If you have a friend who wants to order that makes it even nicer; big discounts and free hostess $. It's better than fighting the crowds on Black Friday LOL
If you have any problems putting in your order on line, I'm happy to give you a hand.
Hope you are all having a great day!

Just Because

This is a card for one of my future Stamp A Stack classes. I used the Papillon Potpourri and A Dozen Thoughts stamp sets from Stampin Up.  I also used the butterfly punch to punch out the little butterflies. I just love when we have a punch to cut out our stamped images, so much quicker than "fussy-cutting"
My new 2014 classes are listed on the right of the blog, check them out and sign up soon. I'm hoping to fill  them up quickly!
I received the new 2014 SU catalog WOW! some really cute stuff in there and the next BIG DEAL! at Stampin UP is coming soon… SALE-A-BRATION!! More details to follow soon!!
Have a great day!

New Tim Holtz Snowman die and Stampin Up

I love using all my goodies, don't you?  I got the new Tim Holtz  Snowman die this weekend at Michaels. They were on sale 30% off and I had a 25% off your total purchase WHAT A DEAL!! Of course, I had to get some others, I share what I do with those later. I pulled an old Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder out, SU white ink, and the little tag was stamped with the new tag set from SU I bought the bundle and I was very impressed with it. You can make 70 tags and you have the photopolymer stamp sets for the future.  Make sure to check out the my upcoming classes I hoping they fill fast. I already have all the cards designed and I'm going to start putting together the kits soon. Have a great Monday.

Another Bow Card

This is just another example of using the SU bow die cut. I used DCWV paper and the circles have a glitter on them. Now, I had a problem getting the tape to stick on this one. As I mentioned in the earlier video you would have to use the orange line tape to make this hold. I also used the Itty Bitty Banners stamp and die for the sentiment. Hope you're having a great week!
Tonight is my November Stamp A Stack class, it's a full class I'm so excited! I've posted the upcoming 2014 classes take a look and check your calendars to see if you can join us.
