Christmas Patchwork

Hi everyone! The new holiday catalogue has been live since Sept. 1 and is FULL of amazing new products! When something new comes out, we often forget about the "old" stuff (even though the annual catalogue has only been out 3 months!) Did you know it has a whole section of Christmas products too?! The new Be Merry DSP can be found on page 188 with the classic Christmas colours of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green. I inked up a returning favorite from last year's holiday catalogue, Cookie Cutter Christmas (page 116 of the annual catalogue) and created this fun card:
Paper: Whisper White Thick, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Be Merry DSP
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

The coordinating Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon can be found on page 198 of the annual catalogue and adds a little texture to the front.

I hope you can join me on September 15 for my first Christmas class of the season! We'll be making 6 cards in total (2 each of 3 designs - including this one!), 2 gift tags, and a gift card holder. Please register by Sept. 8. Cost is $25. Email me for further details!

Happy Stampin'!

Christmas in July!

With only a few days left in July (where has the time gone?!) now is a great time to get a head start on those Christmas projects! Until the end of July, there is a fantastic gift pack bonus offered from Stampin' Up! when you join our family of demonstrators! You still choose the regular starter kit (choose $165 of products and pay just $135) PLUS you will get another $94 worth of products for FREE!! Included is a new stamp set from the upcoming holiday catalogue, not available to customers until September!! You pay just $135 and get $259 worth of Stampin' Up! goodies PLUS pay no shipping!! Amazing, right?!! There is no catch - this offer is welcome to all, whether you're just looking for a discount for yourself, want to start a hobby business, or start your own full-time home business and earn an income! Extra bonus: As demonstrators, we have early access to the holiday catalogue a whole month ahead of customers, on August 1! (demonstrators got to see a PDF of the new holiday catalogue today....simply amazing!!!)
I joined Stampin' Up! over 3 years ago, and because of SU have met some amazing people I would never have met otherwise! The perks of being a part of the SU family reach far beyond discounts and sneak-peeks, the friendships and fun we have are the best, and the sense of community is nothing short of wonderful! I'd love to have you join me on this adventure. Contact me to join my team!

Have a fabulous weekend! I hope you find time to do something creative :) (and join my team...seriously....what have you got to lose?!)

Day At the Beach

The Day At the Beach stamp set on page 34 of the Occasions catalogue is a super-cute stamp set that was first released in Stampin' Up's South Pacific market in their fall/holiday occasions catalogue. No that isn't a typo....don't forget that in the Southern Hemisphere they are entering their hottest time of the year in the fall while us in North America (and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere) are starting to bundle up and shovel the white stuff! As soon as I saw the pair of glasses, I knew I wanted to make a card for my niece who is away at optometry school in Ontario, soon to finish her 2nd year.
I used the watercolor pencils and my blender pen to color in the frames. Aren't they cute?! I hope it brightens Jenay's day as she is busy studying for exams this month!

Thanks for stopping by!

Final Hours of Sale-A-Bration!!

We are winding down one of the most popular times of the Stampin' Up! year, the fabulous Sale-A-Bration! There's just a few hours left to snatch up some free stamp sets and free DSP! Hey, Chick! has been a super popular stamp set, and I used it to create this super adorable card, CASE'd from fellow demonstrator Lydia Fiedler at Understand Blue. Isn't it cute?! I used the Perfect Mix stamp set for the eggs and, yes, that is the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143231)! I simply inked up the "wire" side of the embossing folder with Basic Grey ink, put my 5 x 3.75" piece of Whisper White inside the folder, and ran it through my Big Shot. Cute, right?! The watercolour pencils were used to colour the chicken and eggs/egg carton. Looking at it now, I maybe should have coloured one of the eggs a different colour. Next time!
I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder after cutting out a piece of Basic Black with the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies (#145372). I LOVE these framelits, but you won't find them in any of our catalogues; they were an early release from the upcoming new Annual Catalogue! They are a must in my opinion!
Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, #145372
Here's a close up of that crazy chicken!
Run to my online store and grab Hey, Chick! before midnight tonight! It can't be purchased, and can only be earned for FREE with a $60 purchase. I just love her crazy hair!

Have a fabulous weekend!
