Lighthouses & Sailboats ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s a beautiful day …. the sun is shining, it’s warming up and the snow is melting!!

The other day I shared my love of lighthouses with you, and yesterday my Paper Pumpkin came in the mail and when I opened it up … WOW!  Was Stampin’ Up! reading my mind? I believe they have their finger on the pulse of what their customers want!

With summer celebrations just weeks away, you’ll want to get a head start on putting this seaworthy kit together. This kit is full of nautical-style cards and gift boxes that will make your summer gifting and party planning smooth sailing. Check out the monthly unboxing video!

How did you like the tips she showed us …. Placing the stamps on the tag (upside down) to position them to fit, and then put push the block on top to get ready to stamp!

There are so many ideas I have with this kit!  Of course, masculine birthday cards (or Lake Lovin’ Cards!) But also … Scrapbooking trips to Door County (Eileen and I took an awesome boat trip – would be perfect) or the photos taken during a road trip along the Lake Michigan shoreline!!

Thank you for stopping by today, and check back with me tomorrow for a special card and Sunday for my Simply Sunday series.

Have a wonderful day!

Not Just for Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I know I was going to share a couple more projects from Quilted Christmas (fear not – I’ll share tomorrow) but today I wanted to share an awesome project Stampin’ Up! shared with us, just in time for Halloween.

Remember, our stamps, ink, and paper are versatile enough to create not only beautiful cards, but also unique home décor pieces?

Wonderful creations like this—whether you keep them for your own home or gift them away—can be saved and treasured for years to come. Just imagine what you could create for your own home!

This amazing décor piece was created with the Graveyard Gate Bundle and the Spooky Nights Suite, and you can’t forget the Large Letters Framelits dies (these are a must in everyone’s crafting collection).

The frame you can pick up at your local craft store … I always check out the Dollar store first, I found cute ones and then just spray painted them the color I wanted.  Either one of these places will have inexpensive frames for your crafting.

Hope you enjoyed this cute project, and it’s just in time for Halloween!

JUST A REMINDER …

ONLY one week left in the Merry Patterns Stamp Set promotion! Every order totaling $300 or more earns the Merry Patterns set for FREE. This is a fantastic way to add the free stamp set your stamp collection.(in addition to all the regular Stampin’ Rewards!).

I will be back tomorrow to share as promised, till then …

Have yourself an awesome day!

Getting Ready for Christmas!?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Back again today with some more shares of past Holiday retreat stamping. Below I have just a few of our “Gift Tags” that we made last year. We also decorated a cute tin to hold all of their tags!

These were made with the Stocking Stamp set and dies which have been added to our Annual catalog!! I love that, it gives me a chance to show you even more things to do with the items you’ve already purchased.

Our next grouping of stamped goodies comes from our 2015 Holiday Retreat!! Oh what fun these were … might have even been the hit of the retreat … GIFT CARD ENVELOPES!!

I found a great pattern so these were super simple to create, and we just jazzed up the outsides so they would also be a hit from anyone who received them. Just adorable!

You never know what we’ll be making at our retreats, always something new and fun… you’ll have to join us sometime.  I have a new attendee this year, everyone else has been there before … some, several times (One hasn’t missed one yet!) We also have someone from as far away as Oklahoma!!

We have a blast at our stamping retreats, and I can’t wait to get this Holiday Retreat started! This time next week, we’ll be stamping away!

Thanks for joining me here today on my blog. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Halloween Week: Treat Boxes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a quick -n- sweet little treat for you today! I’m showcasing our Acetate Boxes! These boxes are a quick -n- easy way to share a sweet little treat with a neighbor or loved one.

Our first little box is found on page 195 of the Annual Catalog and is perfect to share a yummy treat with. The belly band around the box is from the “Halloween Nights” Designer paper  … even the cute little pumpkin was cut from another sheet/pattern of the designer paper.

The larger acetate box can be found in the Holiday Catalog on page 13, and holds a little bit bigger type of treat! I’m sure that you can think of all types of goodies to put inside. Again the belly band is from the “Halloween Nights” Designer paper … and so is our cat. The cat is actually punched out with our new cat punch, also found in the Holiday Catalog on page 53.

So if you’ve got some specials little ghouls or goblins that are expecting a Halloween treat … make them something special in just a wink of the eye!

Thank you for joining me today for this little treat …

Have a great day!

Here is a list of the supplies used in today’s projects. Just click on them for more information or to begin shopping. Thank You!
