What’s that saying? Plan your work then work your plan. Yeah sure. Whoever said that obviously never experienced a summer-staycation where all sense of time is lost!
This week’s challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper is… BEACH! Initially I wasn’t going to partake as I have no beachy stamps. Then as I was clearing my workbench I saw “High Tide” and thought, why not! Here is my card.
Please click on the link above if you’d like to join in with the weekly challenges or to simply see all the wonderful interpretations there are for each challenge.
Unbelievably, here it is Sunday and I’ve done BOTH of the new card challenges I’ve found this last week on the same day, today, instead of paced out during the week as planned. Dang it!
The silver-lining is of course is that today I’ve made two cards – that’s twice as many as last week so I’m more than happy, lol!
You know you have it bad when the first thing you think of on waking is “how can I tweak that card-front base to make it work“. And the really hilarious thing is that even the tweak was tweaked!😂
Immediately adhering the base is not something I would usually do and am really not sure what made me do this. It made things that much more difficult in the end. Here is my take on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches 300.
My new Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit arrived yesterday afternoon hence today has been spent moving things around in order to fit my lovely new things in so… it’s out with the old and in with the new!

In case my post from yesterday of the early release Carols of Christmas and Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies piqued your interest, here is a Stampin’ Up! video sharing the details from their sample cards.
Isn’t that shaker card in blue just divine? Oh my goodness, please let me know if you’d like to book some time to spend a day or two getting all your Christmas cards made now, over the summer, so you are ahead of schedule! Seriously how good would THAT feel?
As a teaser for the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog which will be released next month (September 1st), just for this month of August Stampin’ Up! are offering an early-bird bundle on the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set and Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies.
Here are some of the fabulous Stampin’ Up! samples and the beautiful stamps within the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set.
Below are the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies along with all the prices should you wish to buy individually or as a bundle. The choice is yours but thinking ahead, I think it would be cheaper to buy the bundle now as I’m sure you’ll only regret it later if you don’t!
Looking at those thinlets, it’s really only the two Christmas ornaments dies that you couldn’t use all year. On saying that, I’m now wondering if a lot of those smaller ornament images were die-cut, if you could in fact use them on mass to create a different type of background. Just a thoughtie…
As of this morning, I am once again a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!
Yes… BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENTEVER!!!
All I ask if you could please be patient as it will most likely take until the end of the weekend to get my site set-up with all the necessary links once more. However, in the interim I’ve included a link to the above new 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalog (as I have here also giving you a choice to either clock on the bold type or click on the picture above).
Of course, if you already have your shopping list and credit-card ready, by all means email me with your Stampin’ Up! heart’s desires and I will be only too happy to place that order for you. If you are like me having a stay-cation for the remainder of the summer, some more supplies might just be necessary. Did you know that you can now get MINI-dimensionals (p.203)? Yep, ordered mine today!
My goodness, I’m so excited to once again be with this awesome company. Particularly since I think I’ve FINALLY unpacked my mojo – woot woot!
