1 Day left to get your Free Saleabration items

Hi Guys!

Happy Friday!!  How was your day?  My kids had the day off because it’s good Friday.  We spent the day hanging out and they played video games and I finished my Easter Shopping up.  It was a rainy, gloomy day today.    I am trying to get caught up with thank you cards for all my customers.  I love that I need to make thank you cards.  🙂

I had a little time today in my craft room and I was able to make these cute little baskets.

They are so cute and the Hersey’s chocolate eggs fit perfectly inside.  You can fit 3 in with the Easter grass.  These are so easy to make and I did not come up with these.  There are a bunch of people making these but I had to share with you guys because they are too cute.  I used the Basket Weave and Cable Knit folders to make these and you can get both of these folders free until March 31, 2018.  So you have until tomorrow to take advantage of Saleabration.  If you want to purchase these items click here to purchase them.

Did you know if you sign up to become a Demonstrator during Saleabration you get two free stamp sets out of the current catalog at any value?  You can not choose any Saleabration ones but any others you can.  I always tell anyone who is joining to pick the most expensive sets that you want.  It’s a great time to join.  Anytime is a great time really but especially now.  If you want more information on joining my team please click here.  If you would like to join right now click here.  My team and I have a really fun time and we have our own team page where we bounce ideas off each other, and share tips and techniques.

Did you know that I have a newsletter that I offer?  It’s a monthly newsletter but sometimes I will send out a newsletter if something important has happened or there is a special or sale happening at Stampin Up.  If you have not signed up for my newsletter yet please head over to my website here and fill out your information.

Here is the video on how to make those cute little baskets.

Happy Friday!!


3 days left to get your free Saleabration items.

Hi Guys,!!

Happy Wednesday!  How has your day been going today?  What did you do today?  After the husband and kids left for the day I did a few chores in the morning and then headed up to my craft room to film my latest video.  This latest card I made I just love.  I know I say that with all my cards but I truly love them all.  Here is a picture of the card I made.

I know so pretty right?  The products Stampin Up has are amazing!!  I could not create such a beautiful card without these products.  I used two free Saleabration items, Amazing You and the Springtime Foil Designer Series Paper.  I love that paper so much.  It is so beautiful.

I watched a video by Jennifer McGuire yesterday and she posted how to make this fun fold card.  I used her fun fold and created my own card using Stampin Up products.  I made a video on how I created this card.  Here is the video:

This is one of my longer videos.  I try to keep them short but sometimes they are longer so I can give you all the details.  I do love my 5-minute Friday video’s but sometimes you need more info then what 5 minutes give you.

  So if you guys love the Amazing You stamp set or the Spring Foil paper you only have 3 days to get these items.  You need to spend $50 and you can earn one of these items, if you spend $100 then you can get both for free.   If you want either of these items you need to hurry.  Please shop hereand you also will get a gift from me in the mail as a thank you if you use my March Host code CG9BVDPB.  If your order is $150 or more do not use my host code you will get your own rewards but don’t worry you still will get a special gift from me.

I am very thankful for all you guys!!  You have helped me from the very begging of my Stampin Up journey.  I started from scratch and it’s amazing to see all the people who subscribe, like, share and support me.  I first started 18 months ago.  I started a YouTube, Blog, and Facebook Page from scratch.  I now have 2778 subscribers on YouTube, and 131 follows on Facebook.  This is just crazy to me and I thank you guys so much!!  The best part has been the friendships I have gained since Stampin Up.  Some of you guys have reached out to me and we have now become friends.  I have gained a lot of friends with other Stampin Up Demos and I look forward to many more friendships.  So thank you guys so much for all the support.

Anyone who places an order for the remainder of March and uses the March Host code will get a set of my handmade cards.  That’s with any and all orders for the next three days.  So get your free Saleabration items, and a free set of cards from me too.  Thank you guys for everything

Happy Wednesday!!



Hi Guys!!

Happy Monday!  How are you guys today?  I hope all is well with you today!  I know it’s Monday and most people do not care for Mondays but as a stay at home mom I tend to really like them.  lol  It’s a nice sunny day today and that sunshine makes a world of difference.  It started off cold but the temperature is 45 degrees currently and our snow is melting very nicely.  I will not be sad to see it go.  I am looking forward to getting outside and walking and playing in the yard with the kids.

I take part in monthly swaps with other Stampin Up Demonstrators each month.  I love that I can build my cards up with other talented stampers.  I was also lucky enough to get in on the first pre-order for the Stamparatus last year.  My Stamperatus came to me on March 1 and I have been using it like crazy.  I love all the versatility we get with it.  It has open sides so there is no restriction on paper size.  There are 2 plates that you can utilize the front and back for 4 different stamping images.  The seller for me is the Hinge method.  You can move the plate down on the hinge and stamp images that will line up perfectly.

  Here is a video Stampin Up has released on the Stamparatus

So I used the stamparatus to make my swaps.  It comes in handy when you have to make many cards at a time.  Here are the swaps I made:

The theme this month was Bling.  So I used wink of Stella on the flamingo.  I also used Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper and Silver 1/8″ Ribbon.  I embossed the Thanks with silver embossing powder.  Lots of bling on this card.  I can not wait to see all my swaps I will get back in the mail in April.

So Saleabration is almost over.  I know I am sad too.  Have you made all your purchases in the occasions catalog yet?  There are only 5 days left guys!!  Get shopping before it’s too late.  My 5-minute Friday last week I used a couple of Saleabration items.  I did the Black Ice technique on the card.

Have you heard of this technique?  It’s an older technique but lately, everyone is making cards using this technique.  I thought I would share this with you guys too.  I used the Amazing You Clear-Mount Stamp Set to stamp this out.  You take your basic black ink and rub it very lightly over your foil paper.  Then you will stamp your images with basic black on your foil paper.  Be careful not to press down too hard or your image may slide and cause it to be blurry.  You want to make sure it is completely dry for this next step.  You can use the heat tool to dry it completely.  Then you take your versamark ink and do the same thing.  Rub it very gently over the top of the foil.  Then use clear embossing powder over the top and heat it.  It really is a wow effect!!  I also used the Basic Gray ribbon from the 3/8″ (1 Cm) Shimmer Ribbon Pack that is free also during Saleabration.  If you want either of these items you need to hurry.  Please shop here and you also will get a gift from me in the mail as a thank you if you use my March Host code CG9BVDPB.  If your order is $150 or more do not use my host code you will get your own rewards but dont worry you still will get a special gift from me. Here is the video of the card I made above:

Happy Monday!!

Will you get what you want before they are gone?

Hi Guys,

Happy Sunday!!  I hope everyone has had a great weekend.  What did you guys do?  We celebrated Easter yesterday with my family.  We always head up to my parent’s house about an hour away and celebrate with my brother and his family.  There was a lot of snow at their house so we could not do an Easter egg hunt outside so the kids had to find them inside.  I made a basket for my niece and nephew.  They are 2 and 5.  I used my Cricut and the easy-press and made them these cute shirts and put their names on these bunnies I bought at the dollar store.

I love how easy it was to cut and then use the easy press to put these on.  They loved the stuffed animals and my sister-in-law loved the shirts.

I also have been busy as my team of stampers is growing.  I love having other stampers and crafters on my team.  We have fun and share our ideas with each other and learn new techniques from each other.  This is exactly why I joined Stampin Up, so I could meet and connect with others who shared the same passion I share.  We have a team facebook page where we post ideas, our projects, and the latest Stampin Up news.  I give anyone who joins my team a welcome gift and I also let them pick a stamp set from the current catalogs valued at $25 or less.  It’s just my way of thanking them for joining my team.  If you would like more information on my team please click here.   If you would like to join right now please click here

I also have been busy working on customer thank you’s.  I am so excited because I have regular customers now.  I love interacting with all my customers and I love getting their Thank you cards made and the little gifts I give them.  You never know when you order from me what you will get in the mail from me and you can always count on a homemade thank you card with every order.  Here is the thank you cards I made for March orders.

I used the Southern Serenade stamp set out of the Occasions catalog.  It is one of my favorites.   I used Basic Gray as the card base.  I then cut out Soft Sky cardstock and layered it on top of the basic gray.  I then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped 3/4 of it with the lace/flower stamp in basic gray.  I then layered the free Bermuda Bay and Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon across the front of the whisper white.  I then stamped Thank you and the single flower in basic gray and colored it with the Stampin Blends basic gray and pool party.  I used the light and dark in each marker.  I used the largest layering oval framelit and cut it out in whisper white.  Then I used the largest scalloped layering oval framelit and cut out soft sky.  I used wink of Stella around the edges of the scallop oval.  I then stamped the bunch of flowers on the whisper white oval with basic gray.  I used the Stampin blends to color in the flowers and then used Stampin dimensional to pop it up on the front.  I put some Rhinestone Basic Jewels in the corner for some extra bling.

So I hope you guys get your shopping in and get the products you want!!  Time is running out.

Happy Sunday!!


Occasion is winding down

Hi Guys!!

Happy Wednesday!!  How is everyone today?  I hope your day is going great!  I have been very busy these past few months.  My boys are keeping me busy and I have been trying to get as much crafting in as possible.

So I have been working hard with my team.  I love that I have a team of Demonstrators and we can bounce ideas off each other and help each other.  I love building relationships and crafting with others.  So I have a training facebook page with lots of information and support, and all my team members know they can contact me anytime with any questions ever!!  I would love to have you as part of our team.  If you want to join my team click here, and if you would like a little more information click here.

Did you know there are only about 10 days left of the Occasion catalog and Saleabration?  Have you bought all your goodies you want?  I did a lot of shopping and have some incredible products.  I have been busy making cards and mailing them out to people.  Here is a couple of cards I have made recently.


This is just a couple of my latest cards.  These were made with Saleabration items.  The top card I used the Saleabration items, Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, and the Shimmer Ribbon Pack.  I used Berry Burst ink to stamp the flower and Berry Burst Cardstock behind to really make it pop.  The second card I used the Shimmer Ribbon Pack, Amazing You Stamp Set, and the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I used Peekaboo Peach to ink the inside of the Cable Knit folder and ran it through the big shot.  It left such a pretty subtle imprint on the cardstock.  I then used Peekaboo Peach cardstock for the cardbase and added Silver foil paper behind the whisper white circle.  I stamped let’s Celebrate in Versamark ink then Peekaboo Peach ink and then used clear embossing powder.  I love how everything ties together and matches.   If you want to shop for these items shop here.

Well, I hope you guys get shopping because there are not many days left to get your Occasion and Saleabration items.

Happy Wednesday!
