Hope Your Day Is Magical

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, I Hope Your Day Is Magical filled with fun, family and a little bit of good luck!

I can’t believe how fast the days are flying by, March is half way over and this is the final month of Sale-a-bration! 3 months have flown by! A mentor started a 365 day challenge today, I can’t imagine! But maybe if I did one too, I would post a couple times a week again (wink)! We’ll see!

The first weekend of April I travel to Milwaukee for OnStage to see the new Annual Catalog and New products. So there will be lots to share in the next couple of months!

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves and get back to Sale-a-bration…if you follow me on Facebook you know that the 15th was the third addition of products to choose as free items. Last month Stampin’Up! added the Eclectic Expressions, the gorgeous Springtime Foil and Blossoming Basket Bundle. This week SU added a wonderful selection of items from our Occasions Catalog and more! Awesome items were added like the Color Me Happy Project Kit, the Scattered Sequins Dynamic embossing folder (WOW on that one!!), cardstock packs, the new Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper, even a couple of Stampin’ Write markers!

The picture shows the new items but visit my Demonstrator Site to see better images and place your order.

For those in Illinois, have a safe weekend if the weather ends up a wintery mix as predicted for Saturday. I am looking forward to working on some Easter cards!

March is here!

March is here and there is a lot going on this month! I don’t mean March Madness basketball!

It is the final month of Sale-a-bration. Don’t miss out on the chance to get free product. I used the Eclectic Expressions Stamp Set to create this card. It is one of the new items added in February. I also ordered the beautiful Springtime Foil Paper but haven’t played with it yet!

In March Stampin’ Up! is also celebrating the 5 year anniversary of Paper Pumpkin. Order by March 10 to get this month’s kit. Besides a fun project, there will be a special anniversary box and a free gift! Don’t miss out!

This was one of my alternative projects using the February kit. I used some items from the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog too.

There are some great items in the Occasions Catalog for Easter. Holy Week is the last week of the month with Easter on April 1, it will be here before you know it!

New Sale-a-bration products

New Sale-a-bration products are available. It is a great time of year to pick up FREE product! I ordered   this a.m and selected Epic Celebrations, previously on back order but also picked up our new Springtime Foils Paper (foil is huge in the industry right now) and  Eclectic Expressions Stamp Set, two of the new product.

Stay tuned, I hope to stamp with them when back home this weekend!

Don’t forget to use the Workshop Code when you place an order, through Monday February 26. I will send you a free pack of the gorgeous Gold Vinyl stickers from the Occasions Catalog for an order of $50 or more. This of course also earns you free Sale-a-bration items. The workshop code is: F6RCFZZH

Since I can’t Stamp and post a card this week, I would like to share an idea that our gorgeous Painted With Love Designer Series Paper doesn’t have to be used for Valentines Cards. Here are some gorgeous ideas from our Artisan Team.

Rhoda MacPherson:

Because I am traveling this week, instead of meeting last Monday of the month, Stamp Night will be Monday, March 5 from 6-9 p.m. I will have a couple of samples using New SAB product but it will be an open stamp night. You can make 4 cards for $10, come with an idea of type of card and you can use my product to make it!

I am thinking of all of you in Illinois, as I have seen pictures of the river and flooding. Well, there is a lot of rain here in Texas too so I imagine a lot of the Central portion of the country is impacted. Please be safe!

Valentine’s Day is almost here!

Valentine’s Day is almost here! Have you made your Valentine’s cards for those special to you? Right, I haven’t either! LOL! Just like Christmas, I’ve been busy making cards for stamp night and Facebook posts but don’t have mine done yet.  But I hear there is a big game on Sunday and I will likely only watch the commercials, so plenty of stamp time!

This one was one of my favorite Valentine’s cards so far! I cut the heart out of the Designer Series Paper on the front, so I have a heart to use on another card! 

The card below is one I created this week, a very different style than I have stamped before but I wanted to play with distress backgrounds and using stencils. I love it! The stamps are current and retired Stampin’ Up! stamps but the stencil and some of the ink in the background are Tim Holtz products.

I have included a post (below) from my Facebook page (easier to paste it!). February is a great time to order because of Sale-a-bration and my little party incentive!

I invite you to order during the month of February and use the party code posted in this picture. The party is being hosted by one of our stampers, Jan.  The party closed February 25th. 

To encourage you to order using this code. Anyone ordering $50 or more will not only earn a free Sale-a-bration (SAB) item but I will send you a free set of Painted Love Gold stickers (page 19 in the Occasions Catalog). The brilliant gold flowers, leaves, hearts and shapes are gorgeous additions on cards and envelopes. I 💛 them!!

Don’t forget, you earn a FREE item for EVERY $50 of your order!  And new items will be available on Feb 16 besides those in the current SAB catalog. You can see the current items on my website by clicking here.

There are three new items that will be added on Feb 16; Eclectic Expressions stamps (my favorite), Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper (foil is huge right now in the paper craft industry!), and Blossoming Basket Bundle (a Stamp Set and Embossing Folder!). Pictures coming soon!

Share this with your friends and join the party!

Let me know if you would be interested in hosting a party too. Very easy, I create a code and you share it with friends and earn the rewards on your party sales. I will add a gift for orders on your party too!

You Warm My Heart

What a sweet sentiment – You Warm My Heart! It was the perfect one to use on this card using Heart Happiness Stamp Set and other Stampin’ Up! stamps and supplies.

It has been a long week and I am happy to be back home and crafting! I will be working on designs for Stamp Night Monday night so stay tuned to see what we will be creating.
