Songs and Candles 1

I was really torn with doing something amazing for Friday 13 and all spooky but I also really wanted to continue out this week with the Merry Pattern stamp set. Today also marks an incredibly special day because it is also my 2 year Stampin’ Up! anniversary. So this may be a little bit of a longer post but bear with me.

Anyways here is the project that I created and since we are kicking off the weekend I will have 3 similar cards each day for you to use as inspiration. I am so excited that we have another paper with Christmas carols on it. What makes this paper even better is that it has a few different languages on it like German. For all my amazing German customers in the US I wanted to share that they have Stille Nacht (Silent Night) on one of the papers too!

The supplies that I used are below:

  • Paper: Real Red Cardstock, Whisper White Card Stock, and Merry Music SpecialtyIn Designer Paper
  • Ink Colors: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Emerald Envy
  • Embossing Powder: Gold
  • Stamp Set: Merry Pattern

Again this is such a simple design and with so much paper in our Designer Series Paper packs you can have all your Christmas cards created and sent in time to watch lots of Christmas movies without any stress.

So since it is a Friday I will have another Freebie with any order placed today! So this is how I am going to celebrate my Black Cat Loving friends and Friday 13!

So with any size order you place today using the hostess code below until the end of today you will get these super cute cats sent to you. You will get at least these two and if I am feeling witchy I may throw in a few more black cats!


So my last thing is sharing my Why I joined Stampin’ Up! with you. I had been looking for a craft in a box to be sent to me and found Paper Pumpkin and then realized I could also make this a business. I debated trying it because what if something went wrong I mean I loved to craft but really make this a business??? Crazy talk.. well that weekend my life flipped and a close friend passed away unexpectedly and I realized that life was wayyyy way too short to keep sitting on the sidelines. I mean honestly what was the true risk if I started this business? I spent $99 and got lots of cool great product and oh yea I get a 20% off everything I purchase. There really was no losing so I decided to join. I found someone to sign up under and have been learning and growing ever since. Sooo if you are sitting there thinking of all the reasons you shouldn’t do this I encourage you to stop and think of all the reasons you should!! I hope you will join me and I would love to answer any questions that you may have.

Make sure to join me again tomorrow as I continue on my 31 day blog challenge. Until tomorrow
