Label Flip Card and Heart punch on sale

Great choices this week for the Weekly Deals!

The Label flip card die is a great deal at $8 off.  I know a lot of you have the circle flip die so this is a less expensive way to add another to your collection of those.

And Yippee Skippee is on sale, too!  Don’t miss your chance to have a stamp that says I Freakin’ Love You  (someone must love that saying somewhere because it’s a big seller!)

The new heart punch is on sale, the Sweetheart punch, was added in this year’s catalog.  It’s a little more curvy than the regular heart punch. There’s a coordinating stamp set (not on sale) that you may like with the punch:

Tomorrow I’m off to the gorgeous St. George, Utah for the SU Founders trip.  I’m grateful to have earned this Top 100 trip again this year and can’t wait to see what’s in store for us!   I’ve made 113 of the same card and on the PJ night, we’ll swap with each other so I’ll come home with 113 different ones.
Here is the packet that came in the mail from SU with my luggage tags and agenda.  The theme for this year, Home for the Holidays, sounds like hot cocoa in a lodge:)

Swaps to Share!

I’m a lucky stamper to be able to swap 10 cards each month with a group of demonstrators around the states.  I love getting my box each month to see what they created! Here are a few from this month.  (I love them all but have a full day ahead of me and have to limit today!)

Kimberly Allen is a master at the coloring with any medium and now here with the Blendies, just perfect!

20140909-093419.jpg

See how she used the light gray for shadows around the flowers?  Adds so much.  She used Corner Garden, which looks like nothing when you see it in black and white in the catty 🙂

I love this bird because it’s so realistic! This one was stamped by Carole Gilmore using the stamp set, An Open Heart:

I tried to use the SU Stencils to create a plaid using this set, but I don’t think it was too successful.

What do you think?

A new Photopolymer set called 25 Days popped up today!  #135041  $25.95. 

25 days photopolymer

 The description says “Make the holidays count by counting down the days with this creative photopolymer set. Perfect for stamping advent calendars, it’s sure to be a centerpiece of your season. Set quantity: 25.”  We needed a current one for people who want to make advents this year, so this is a nice addition!

The Weekly Deals really have some Deals this week! 

That 2″ punch is new this year and it fits nice and snug into the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch!  So does the 1-3/4 but this is a bit larger and looks nice! And the glitter….we are heading into the holidays so glitter will be upon us soon….literally!

Square Framelits on sale!

Thank you, Stampin’ Up for putting the Square framelits on sale!

Somewhere along the line, I lost ONE of the square framelits in my set.

Probably went into the trash with some scraps of paper and it’s the one I use the most.

I knew I’d have to buy another set and I kept waiting for them to go on sale….

“Pin-spired” and a Cute New Stamp Set

New Catalog Update! 

I have officially mailed out the NEW 2014-2015 Stampin UP catalogs to all who have requested one here on the blog or otherwise.

  I mailed them all out on Monday, so if you have not received yours by today, please email me!  Over the years I’ve learned about 5% never make it.

Those of you I’m seeing this week, you will get yours in person.

“PIN-spired”

In the wee hours, if I find the Ipad on my nightstand, I might visit Pinterest.  If I’m feeling unorganized, there’s a million ways to solve any problem.  If I’m feeling plump that day,  I may look for healthy recipes.  If I’m feeling lonely, I look at boston terrier puppies….Pinterest is the fix for just about mood 🙂

Sometimes I look through the stamping and papercrafting, save a few for inspiration.

20140516-080336.jpg

Sadly, this one had no name or watermark on it, as it often happens on Pinterest.   I loved the color combo of Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron.  We don’t have the eyelets or that stamp anymore, but I made my own version of it.

Here’s my “PIN-spired” version:

20140516-081710.jpg

I used the stamp set in the Occasions catalog called So Very Grateful, which will not be carrying over into the new catty so if you want it, get it before June 1st.

so very grateful

16.95 Clear Mount, # 133053

  Pansy Punch for the flower, Bird Builder punch for the leaves.  We have a super cool new DSP coming out in the new catty called Typeset – thin newsprinty paper that will be SO useful for lots of projects.

Thank you for the inspiration, wherever you are!
