To celebrate World Card Making Day this coming Saturday, Stampin’ Up has 15% off selected Note Cards & Envelopes and Stamp Sets as listed below!
But wait… there’s more!
If you’ve been eyeing off the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set, or any of the above sets like me for a while now, we have until Tuesday to place an order. Let me know if you’d like me to place your order whilst placing mine!
Rearranging my “stash” is the equivalent of buying new stuff. Product that has inadvertently been pushed to the back is suddenly front and centre once again.
Such was the case with this Stampin’ Up! Cupcakes and Carousels DSP. It might be sooo last season but I love that grunge-feel it has about it as you can see below.
The Swirly Scribbles Die-Cuts are currently a favourite of mine. In this instance I’ve covered the die-cut with Crystal Effect to give it some depth and character. Plus I finally used the SAB2017 Delicate Details Stamp Set. Seriously, it’s just like having new stuff!
This card was created for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #307. I’m so, so grateful for the wonderful “kick-starts” they give me each week. This is their current sketch.
Slowly but surely I’m getting my groove back. This is fortunate since we are now in October – it’s almost Christmas! Have you all the supplies you need for your Christmas creations yet?
After being so focused on scrapbooking for the last four weeks, I’m really having trouble now starting anything else. Thank goodness for the card challenges. Here’s my take on the challenge from My Favorite Things #352.
With the Deck the Halls Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! having been sitting on my workbench for a couple of weeks it was a given to use it. With wood grain papers a current favourite of mine, this was the next obvious choice. Here’s the sketch from My Favorite Things.
Here’s hoping that with next week being a new month my mojo finally kicks in, giving me a jump-start on a project or two. Fingers-crossed!
My mammoth month of scrapbooking has come to an end. In just four weeks I completed three albums encompassing two Spring Breaks making for one happy momma. Feels so good to know those memories are now in books.
And as much as I enjoyed putting those three scrapbook albums together, I have to admit I’m now more than a little happy to have time to make some cards. Today’s card below was for Freshly Made Sketches 306.
I’ve had this Chicken Wire Die-Cut for the longest time and worked perfectly with this background when I was looking for that extra little something. All of course topped off with a beautiful Prima Flower.
Yesterday I was in desperate need of a change. In the last week I have created a dozen two-page scrapbook pages. I’m almost half-way through this album with still a second album to do. What can I say, Spring Break 2013 was very good!
For a change of direction yesterday I worked with the My Favorite Things Card Challenge #348. My card is not quite what I envisioned and feel it is still lacking something but right now that something eludes me.
This is the sketch given by My Favourite Things for the challenge. As you can see, I certainly didn’t stray far from the design at all.
As for now, it’s time to get back into the school routine with two teenagers who really don’t want to return to high school today. Wish me luck!
Come Friday you’ll be able to add this year’s Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! to your viewing and shopping pleasure. Here is a small taste of what to expect…
There are soooo many delights in this Holiday Catalog my bank account is already quivering with anticipation of being depleted!
Once the children are back in school next week I’ll be sending out catalogs to all those who requested to be kept on my mailing list. Please message me if you would like to confirm or add your name and address to the list.
