And one of the perks for doing the I Want it All Share? You can also opt to add on the Artisan Embellishments Pack for 50% off! Regular price is $9.95+tax/shipping, yours for only $4.98+tax/shipping.  This is an awesome savings and will get your hands on my FAVORITE accessories in the Occasions Catalog! This Accessory Pack is its own share in and of itself. It already comes with just one of each element and a small sampling of BEAUTIFUL trims – so it can’t really be included it in the share. But I want everyone to be able to have it because it’s one of the most WELL DONE embellishment kits with HUGE possibilities! Take a look…

Shares4 copy


To take advantage of the 50% off Embellishment Pack, just let me know you want it when you e-mail me to opt in to the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalog I Want it All Share. Utilizing this perk is entirely optional.

The 50% Off Embellishment Pack is valid through January 15th only.


Want to sign up for 1, 2 or ALL of these shares!? Just e-mail me at with the ones you want!


There is shipping on the shares based on the quantity of shares ordered if you’re not able to pick them up. “I Want it All!” Shares have a flat rate shipping of $5.60.


This is currently a “Save your Spot!” sign up for when the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalogs go live on January 6th. No orders will be placed/fulfilled until then.

Bravo for Paws!

Bravo paws

My youngest grandson is turning 5!  I can’t believe how these years have flown!  He’s a huge fan of Paw Patrol and his mom has themed his birthday party around it.  So it was off to my stampin’ studio to figure out how to translate that theme into a card.

  • “Wow” kinda summed up my disbelief that he’s turning 5, so I pulled out the Bravo stamp set.  It’s also a little cheesy but I kept thinking “wow wow” for “bow wow” – I know it’s a stretch!
  • The paw is made with the Hearts Thinlits and Sm. Oval Punch.  I popped them up on Dimensionals for more of a 3D effect.
  • My color scheme replicated “Chase” who looks like this (for those of you without a 5-year-old boy)!  Guess I maybe should have used Chocolate Chip instead of Basic Black!
  • The Star Embossing Folder created the fun background on the Crushed Curry cardstock.
  • A fun accent for a young boy is the black and white Baker’s Twine.  Not much else needed!

Here’s my little sweetie – happy 5th birthday, Jackson!

New Stampin’ Up! Products for 2015!

Chalk Inks and Balloon Bash

I know it’s less than 2 weeks until Christmas and I should be showing more Christmas ideas, but my demonstrator pre-order products from the new Occasions Catalog just arrived and I had to take a few minutes to play!  The new products I’m most excited about are the Chalkboard Paper and the Chalk Ink Pads!    I’ve combined them here along with a new must-have stamp set called Balloon Bash – a terrific new birthday set.

  • There are three different colors of Chalk Inks – Aquamarine, Rose Coral and Yellow Citrus.  They don’t follow the Stampin’ Up! color names, but here I’ve paired them with Crushed Curry, Island Indigo and Blushing Bride.
  • The main image is stamped in Aquamarine.  I then stamped it again in Rose Coral for the “just for you” banner, cut it out and adhered it on top with Dimensionals.
  • I did the same thing with the word “birthday” – stamped in Yellow Citrus and cut it out, then adhered it to the card with Dimensionals.
  • For a full chalkboard effect, I used my White Craft Stamp Pad and a Sponge Dauber and with very light pressure, added some “chalk dust” around the sides of the image.

I Will Honor Stampin’ Up!’s 30% Off Blendabilities Offer


I know many of you are sad about how quickly the Blendabilites 30% Off Bundle sold out. I wanted to let you know that while Stampin’ Up!’s quantity available at the sale price is sold out, I am happy to honor the pricing personally through 9:00 pm ET Today Only. That means if you missed out on this fabulous deal, you have a second  chance!

In order to give you this 30% off pricing, you will need to E-MAIL your order to me and I will have to place it FOR YOU. I will also need a valid Credit Card Number by 9:00 pm ET along with the order so that I can process it.
  • The bundle that Stampin’ Up! was offering that sold out within an hour was for all 12 of the Blendabilities Packages (excluding skin tone assortment and color lifter). The price advertised was $100 for what would normally have been $143.40.
  • I will honor the $100 pricing on this bundle through 9:00 pm ET on December 1st.
  • In order to be able to honor the 30% pricing, you will be required to pay full tax and shipping on the pre-sale price of this order, making your total amount due $125.38.
  • In order to be able to honor the 30% pricing, you will not be able to qualify for the free Wondrous Wreath Card Kit with this order. To qualify for that free kit that I’m offering as a special, you would need to spend $35 before shipping and tax not including the Blendabilities order. I’m unable to offer both specials at the same time.

30% Off Gift Box Punch Board TODAY ONLY

Gift Box Punch Board

Today begins the first day of the Stampin’ Up! Online Extravaganza Sale, with today being the first of the Door Busters!  That means that you can purchase this Gift Box Punch Board  TODAY ONLY for 30% off!  (AND almost all of the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders are on sale today only, too!)  I’m so thrilled with how this project turned out, and it’s so easy with the use of the new Stampin’ Up! product for creating boxes of all sizes.


If I “undress” my box, it looks like this.  I love the way the box closes with the little sliding tab top.

But are you ready for the coolest part of it . . .  This beautiful box goes together without any adhesive whatsoever!  You’ll cut your cardstock to the size indicated on the chart that’s on the face of the Gift Box Punch Board then just follow the punching and scoring instructions.  It couldn’t be easier!  And what’s really great is that these boxes are big enough to really hold something!  Sometimes boxes are just too small and aren’t that useable, but this is not the case here!  My completed box measures 4″ x 4″ so I began with a piece of cardstock that was 12″ x 12″.

Now for the decorating!

  • You’ll want to have the Gift Bow Die for the Big Shot to make cute bows for all your boxes!  This one’s cut with Soft Sky cardstock.
  • The tag’s created with the Merry Everything and Note Tag Punch – two products that are bundled together to save you 15%!  It’s stamped in Old Olive ink, and there’s a cute Soft Sky button from the Nordic Designer Buttons at the bottom.
  • There are lots of fun fibers tied to this tag – Soft Sky 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon, Real Red 3/8″ Satin Woven Ribbon, Olive and Vanilla and White & Tangerine Tango Two-Tone Trim (yes – I pulled them apart and used the Olive and White together!) and White Baker’s Twine.
  • Did you notice the cute tone-on-tone stamping on the bottom of the box?  That comes from Cheerful Tags stamp set found in the Holiday Catalog.

Watch this short video for even more explanation on how the Gift Box Punch Board works!

Click HERE for listing of sale items for the Online Extravaganza. 

And to sweeten the deal, all online orders placed this week totaling a minimum of $35 and using the Hostess Code Q6RSUUQG will receive a specially designed card kit from me – completely free!  All the details on this freebie are HERE.
