Paper Sale

This past weekend was such an enjoyable one for us because we got to go home and visit my family. We are very thankful to be a little closer again to all of our family and having the ability to drive home for special events. This weekend my mom hosted a small Oktoberfest with some close friends and it was a ton of fun.

Anyways I have not had a chance to create all weekend but I wanted to keep my role on for my post a day so I wanted to show you some of my favorites from the sales that is going on.  Make sure you take advantage of this sale before it goes away! Reminder when you purchase 3 you get 1 for free.

So my first one that I love is the Just Add Color. These will be amazing with the new Stampin’ Blends markers and there are so many different sheets in this set.

Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper

Next is the So Eclectic Designer series paper. The reason why I love this is because of all the texture and colors within this set. Truly this is a must have.

Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper

3rd one is the Painted Harvest paper because it just ooozzes fall to me. Make sure to get it quick before the seasons change on us.. but if you are in North Carolina with me it is still 85 degrees here.

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper

Finally the one that I love is the Delightful Daisy paper. I have loved this one since it came out in the annual catalog and all the cards I have created with it.

So there you have it my favorite 4 papers with the sale and the ones that I recommend you getting before it ends.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Product Spotlight Week: Merry Patterns

So this week I wanted to focus on the Merry Patterns stamp set this week. I really adore this stamp set and I am so sad that it will be leaving us at the end of October. So they way to earn this stamp set is to either place a $300 order or host a party with me and get a qualifying order.

Merry Patterns Photopolymer Stamp Set

So here is my project that I created during World Card Making day. It is a sweet and simple 3×3 card that you could place in a gift basket. Really there is not a stamp in this set that I do not love but I love how you can have different colors with the candles. The colors that I chose are Rich Razzleberry and Berry Burst. Not two commonly put together colors but I think that they work amazingly well.

I wanted the flames to sparkle some so I used the tombow glue and our gold  glitter to give it a little bit of a shimmer on the top. Reminder that you can purchase any of these products in my online store and make sure to use the hostess code as long as your order is below $150 otherwise you give up your hostess benefits.

Also I recommend if you do have an order over $99 to looking into becoming a demonstrator. We receive a lot of great benefits and now is the time to join my team! Have questions? I am always happy to answer them when you reach out to me.

Also tomorrow is the final day that you order your Paper Pumpkin and start your subscription. I would hate for you to miss out on the coordinating kits that will be coming your way. These are also wonderful gifts for kids that want to be creative since everything they need is in one kit.

I hope you enjoyed this card and that you will continue to follow me this month as I continue with my 31 day challenge

Have a wonderful Monday!

A Bike and Goodbye

Wow today marks my first day in a new job. This has been a long time coming because I completed my rotational program and received final placement. Drew and I will be moving to Charlotte, NC in the next month and I am really excited for this new adventure. With this new adventure I had to say goodbye to one of my great friends at work so I wanted to make her a very special card. I followed up with the beautiful envelope I made the other day and you can find that blog post here

I absolutely love this golden bags (Item #144255) and you can purchase them in my online store. I think these will become really popular around Christmas time so I would get them now. Also remember that every $50 that you spend in July you will also receive a $5 coupon to use for August.

This card really has such a wow factor to it and it was simple to make. First I started with our beautiful Fresh Fig ( one of the new in colors) card-stock and also a piece of Whisper White. I used our new embossing past (Item #141979) and added a few drops of real red re-inker and silver glitter to give a little extra sparkle. It gives the effect that it is a nice summer day and you are out for a stroll. I then took our brick patterned decorative mask. These are really the best deal in the catalog because you receive 4 of them for $6 (item #144103). I took the paste and ran it on a diagonal up the card because I just wanted to give a sense that the brick wall was there. I stamped the bike again in Fresh Fig ink and then used my big shot to cut it out. The bicycle stamp (item # 145314) only has images so it pairs nicely with our sentiment only stamps which I used here ( item #143858).

The inside I wanted to keep it really simple so that I can write a lot inside it. I am loving our new washi tape (item # 144221) because it pairs with all of our products wonderfully. Again I used the bicycle stamp set images on the inside to spice it up a little bit more.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that this card inspires you and gets those creative juices flowing.

I also wanted to share that we still have our amazing incentive for new demonstrators happening. On top of being able to put anything into your starter kit (like that amazing big shot) you will also get an exclusive bundle worth up to ($72) for free so that you can hit the ground running. I did a short Facebook live video showing all the products that you can get. Make sure to visit my Facebook page here

 

Summer Night Tic Tac Toe

So here is the card that I created. I had so much fun creating this card. Mainly because while I was recording my roommate was making fun commentary through the recording. I had already decided to do a voice over so it didn’t matter but it was still hilarious to watch and be part of.

Daisy Friend Card and Tic Tac Toe

Do you ever just sit and get creative block? It is like writer’s block but when you are trying to be creative. I know I do! So I was hoping that we could inspire and create together. I made a Tic Tac Toe board and you pick 3 elements off it (either vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) and create a project from that. Sound like fun? You should try it and then use the #pgttt001 on Instagram and Facebook so that I can see your lovely creations and re-share them. Your account must be public for me to see it on Instagram.

PGTTT001

I am going to try this for the month of July and I want to hear from you guys if you like it. If you do we can continue to do it. If not we will find something different.

So to get you all going I am going to share the card that I created and what inspired me. So I used the inspiration of the Summer Stamp, A punch, and Bright Colors.

IMG_0758

I love the Daisy Suite that we now have but I have been so busy that this is the first time I am actually using it. I used our gorgeous new glitter enamel dots for the center of the card to give it some extra pop. I also used the pretty label punch and added a sentiment from the Daisy stamp set.

Below is the inside of the card.

Daisy Friend Card

I cut down all of my Designer Series Paper to be 4×6 inches so that I could easily take a piece of paper and start creating. I then trim down my paper to fit my card front. Afterwards I have this beautiful extra strip that I can use on the inside to tie the entire card together. If you are interested in sampling of these 4X6 sheets please reach out to me for pricing and availability.

 

Finally right now is the best time to make a $50 purchase because for every $50 that you spend in July you will receive a $5 voucher to use in August. How cool is that.

Also if you join my team you will get a $72 value pack to help you hit the ground running on top of the already great starter pack. Need more info? Message me.

 

Have a great Thursday!

Global Design Project 068

This post and card was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch 068 which is below

Also if you would like to check out all the other cards created from this challenge you can visit their website: http://www.global-design-project.com/

 

 

I really loved the colors of this card and the balloons but I have done so many things lately with balloons and thought maybe I should try and make up a couple of Valentines cards. So the card below is what I came up with.

 

gdp-068

The inspiration that I took was the pink and blue color scheme and the balloons rising up on the card. I am also really loving the shaker cards at the moment and realized that using the gold glitter gives my card a nice pop. Also the glitter is contained which is an added bonus. You can actually pull out the little love not too!

Onstage April 2017 Application

This post is all about submitting to be a display board stamper for Onstage Live in Amsterdam. I am so excited to be going to Amsterdam for the first time ever (check on the bucket list) and also attending my first ever Onstage Live!! What is even better is that my amazing Upline will also be there!! Want to join us??? All you had to do is join our team and quick because Onstage registration opens on January 10!!!! I will be highlighting all of these more next week with tips and tricks.

So here are my card fronts:

A beautiful set to share with a friend that I am thinking of her and that I miss having coffee with her.

Love that using Gold Embossing powder makes this card feel like you are catching lightin’ bugs in a cool summers night. It is also a fun shaker card and a great way to use glitter without having it going everywhere!

firefly-shaker-card

Fun card to go to one of my host in January and I used the Emerald Envy embossing powder. Gives the top of the pineapple a fun sparkle that again does not go all over the place.

For my Scrapbook page I really wanted to do something personal. I got married on September 4, 2016 and we had a whole travel theme. I thought the balloons and this fun Sale-A-Bration paper was a perfect combo for our first page. The first picture is during our balloon first look reveal. We both had a set of balloons and let them go at the same time. All of our bridal party was able to watch and it is one of my favorite photos. The bottom one was during our first dance.

wedding-balloons

 

Lastly my 2 3D items. I have 2 birthdays coming up in February and I thought this was the perfect thing to make for them. One of my friends absolutely loves red with polka dots and I thought this would be perfect little box to give her. I am going to fill both the box and little baggie with candy and maybe some nick nacks. The great thing about our paper stacks is that you do not have to cut them down to make the small box!

Dec. 16 Paper Pumpkin Remix

Wow I can not believe that we are already in 2017! Did you make sure to get your Paper Pumpkin subscription started? No? Make sure to start your subscription now because we will be getting another one January 10 and these definitely are my happy boxes. Something that I love to show my customers is a different way to use their box because let’s be honest you are not going to love each project that comes in your box but you are still getting an amazing deal and unique stamps in each box.

This fun shaker card is going to an amazing friend of mine that is now turning 16!! OMG I can not believe she will be 16. I remember when her mom was pregnant with her and when she was born. She is just a true joy and I thought she deserved a fun shaker card like this one.

If you did receive the December 2016 box and still haven’t put it together Stampin’ Up! created a video to show you how to put them together:

 

 

Don’t forget about the amazing chance to be a hostess and earn extra rewards. Either join my hostess club or host a workshop in your home with all of your friends. Contact me for me details.
