I am so so very excited that Fall is in the air! FINALLY!
No, really it has been warm here in Georgia and I am so ready for the cool crisp fall air. We are so ready that we have already had two marshmallow roasts!
I’ve been working and focusing on the Painted Harvest Suite from Stampin’ Up! If you haven’t noticed, LOL, I love it! The Painted Harvest online class is ready to go so get it ordered before it closes. You get access to project videos and ideas as well as receive the materials used to make each project featured in the class.
This beautiful envelope flip book is just one project out of many that I’m happy to provide instructions on how to create. You will also get other creative options. I can not get over how versatile each of the Stampin’ UP! products are. To order the class and be added to the Painted Harvest Facebook Group order by October 7th by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for stopping by and hanging out with me for a short time. I do enjoy the visit! Seriously…..love you guys beyond.
I hope you guys are doing great and having a craftastic summer. I’m working hard on my Christmas projects and preparing for the pre-order for the Holiday Catalog. But more than that I’m so excited about the Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days.
I know what you’re thinking. $50?, I can’t do a project for $50! Well, I’m so glad you asked that question. You can! Let me show you projects that you can create with a $50 order. Some do assume you have some things in stock already but if you don’t and you must add to your order the good news is that for every $50 you spend you receive the $5 coupon to redeem in August. If you use this month’s host code and your order totals $50 or more you will also receive free the Clear Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush from me, VK9Z4ME2. Everyone can use some Wink of Stella!
Project #1: Moon Baby Cards
I will show you a sample order that will provide you with the essentials to complete these cards.
It may be hard to see the above screen shot of the Stampin’ Up! shopping cart. This order does assume a few things. First it assumes you have Very Vanilla Thick Card stock or something similar in your stash. It also assumes you have a yellow ink or a Daffodil Delight Ink Pad as well as a black. I used my snips to fussy cut the baby on the moon and the stars. I used ribbon from my stash as well as metallic gold thread to “sew” the string holding the star. I used the blender pens to pick up the inks from Blushing Bride and Soft Sky Ink Pads and color the baby, moon and stars. Keep adding color to darken areas of shadow and leave light colors of highlight.
I enjoyed making these cards. But don’t stop there scrapping with this set and paper is super fun and easy!
Stay tuned for more projects you can create using only $50 of product. If you don’t have what you need in your stash go ahead and add it because you can enjoy more coupons for every $50.
If you have any questions about a project you are wanting to complete ask me. I’m happy to help.

Who doesn’t like discounts? I love them! This is the time of year that Stampin’ Up! retires products from the current Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog. They offer a discount on some items but not others. What makes this time of year so exciting, other than the discounts (up to 50% off) is that the new Annual Catalog release is fast approaching. June 1st the catalog drops and I couldn’t be happier. Yeah! I’ve seen it and I’m excited and can’t wait to dig into the new products. I’m very happy that some of my favs are sticking around but the new products are to die for.
Sure I’m sad that the current Annual and Occasions Catalog are leaving us but it’s time to send them off with a celebration! So here is where the party is going to happen.
The current Annual and Occasions Catalog sales period ends on May 31st. So….. until then let’s have some fun! Let’s do some giveaways! For every customer that orders through May 31st and uses the hostess code MGFCGQSS and spends $25 and above will receive a gift. Here is where it’s going to get fun. For every $50 you spend you receive more.
Here is the breakdown:
Order $25, receive a thank you card.
Order $50, receive a thank you card and a card project pack from me.
Order $100, receive a thank you card and a card project pack as well as a new roll of Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine.
Order $150, DON’T use the hostess code (you have your own party to shake to), receive a thank you card, two card project packs, a new roll of Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine and your very own hostess rewards (10%)
You get the picture. But on top of that I have ten brand new stamp sets to give away. These are ones I’ve collected to use for this very reason! I love giving away things, it’s so much fun. To be entered in the stamp set giveaways comment on this post by telling me your favorite Stampin’ Up! product retiring or not, or just comment. You can also visit my Facebook page and comment and share the post to be entered.
Be sure to mark the check box that allows me to contact you or else I will never know who to send the gifts to. And won’t that be sad?
If you have any questions please never hesitate to contact me!
The retiring list will be downloadable here on my blog as well as my Facebook page.

I told you that I would post the measurements for this card from my video in a blog post so here it is. I really enjoyed making the card and the video. Luckily my face (no makeup day) did not get in the video, Yay!!!! So the video is posted and I did not have to redo any of it nor did I edit it. I do edit videos sometimes but this was just a video to show my process, it’s raw and impromptu. I laugh at myself a lot and let’s face it, if you can’t laugh at yourself then you are too serious!
I began with Stampin’ Up! Thick Whisper White 11” x 8 ½” card stock. Cut the card stock in half along the 11” length at 5 ½”. I then scored the card stock at 4 ¼” along the 8 ½” side. Fold along the score line.
The Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake card stock was cut at 5 3/8” by 4 1/8”. The Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper was trimmed at 5 ¼” by 4”.
The Whisper White card stock that I stamped the Popsicle on measures 4” by 3 ½”.
I hope you enjoy the video and find that it helps you along in your journey of card making.
If you have any questions feel free to ask it here and I will answer. If you wish to shop with me click on the link to the right and shop away! I would love to have you as a customer. If you need a catalog just request one from me and I shall send it your way.
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to posting more projects and videos in the future.
I LOVE Paper Pumpkin! The January Paper Pumpkin did not disappoint. I got to work right away creating the original projects which were so quick and easy to do.
I got to thinking that this would be a great scrapbooking embellishment pack. I had fun working with it to complete my baby girls first Valentine’s Day page. Yes, I’m behind on a few scrapbook pages so I’ve made myself a promise to work on a few pages a week to get caught up. Lucky you can watch me as I do this and maybe you will get inspired to get those pictures out and get them into a format you will enjoy looking through and experiencing over and over again.
I used a 12 by 12 sheet of Calypso Coral Card Stock as the foundation, added some Whisper White card stock cut to size and the January Paper Pumpkin kit to embellish the page. Let me know what you think.
We spent our first Valentine’s Day in the hospital. I won’t go into details but baby girl is perfect now. The bow she is sporting is one the sweetest nurse made her. I love her to pieces and I really like how this page turned out. Below are some other elements close up.
I think you should try Paper Pumpkin out for your self if you haven’t already. This is a great time to sign up with no further obligation. You can sign up with a 3 month prepaid subscription for $55. That’s a discount of $4 and you qualify for a free Sale-A-Bration product when you do. That’s a great deal. If you don’t have a demonstrator already I would love to provide you with inspiration and guidance on how to create the projects you want to create. Just click the Paper Pumpkin Picture to the right and the link will take you to Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Pumpkin Site so you can sign up. Or just email me and I will help you out with the sign up.
