Episode # 501 ~ "Christmas in July" Card...

  Happy Christmas in July Everyone,

  I have been busy creating some beautiful Christmas cards trying to get a head start on mine that I try to send out the day after Thanksgiving. I know you are probably thinking - what??? Well, it will be here before we know it and I really don't like to be rushed and hurried trying to do it all.

  This is also one of three cards that you will recieve as my *FREE KIT With Purchase* when you place a $40 order (before tax and shipping) through my Stampin' Up! online store during the month of July!      ***YOU MUST USE THE JULY HOSTESS CODE: MYQSH9C9***  The other two card kits are just as pretty and sparkly... *Sigh*

  If you like embossing and the elegant look of foil detailing, you will love this card! These would be easy, peasy to recreate and make a bunch of all at once.

  Don't forget tomorrow is the last day to enter my 500th Video Give-Away featuring the darling "Pokemon Survival Kit" that I shared last week with all of you. My teenagers are having a blast playing, so make sure you enter by midnight Central time so you can have a chance to win it!

Episode #500!!! ~ Pokemon Survival Kit Give-Away!!!

Happy Friday Everyone,

  Can you believe this is my 500th video on YouTube?!? I am so excited and I have enjoyed getting to know all of you over the past 7 years! Let the fun begin ~

  In honor of this achievement, I wanted to do a little Give-Away for you guys... With all the Pokemon craze going on here in the USA, I thought this would be a fun Survival Kit for all you that are playing along! Stampin' Up!'s new circle thinlit's were the perfect go-to for creating this fun project. I also used our circle punches for the smaller Pokemon. I had so much fun creating this and my teenagers that are playing, were smiling when they saw my "kit". I think I am going to have to make a couple more of these for each of them, lol! I know some of my fellow YouTubers and crafters are playing so let me know if you are.

  I will have this Give-Away open from July14th - July 22nd and will then choose a winner from those that are current subscribers and have left a comment letting me know who is your favorite creature.

  Have fun if you are playing and thank you to each and every one of you that have been loyal subscribers and those that watch my videos and leave wonderful comments....

Thanks for watching and please visit my onine store for all your crafting needs!

Episode #498~ Stampin' Up! "Bunch of Blossoms" Gift Card Set

Happy Sunday Everyone,

  I hope those of you that celebrate here in the USA are enjoying this beautiful 4th of July weekend! For those that don't celebrate, I hope you are having a relaxing one...

  I busted out my new stamp set  "Bunch of Blossoms" #141573 $21 and boy oh boy I am SO glad I did!!! This pretty set can create so, so, many different looking flowers - I can't wait to create more cards and sets using it. For this card set I was really drawn to the easy and relaxed watercolor effect these revealed. I also used the new "Sweet Sugarplum"Ink Pad #141395 $6.50 and the matching cardstock #141418 $8. In addition I also used "Emerald Envy" Ink Pad #141396 $6.50 and Basic Gray #140932 $7 Ink Pad. I hope my stamping friend likes it as much as I do...

  Thank you to each and everyone of you that places your Stampin' Up! orders with me, I appreciate every single one of you no matter what the size of your order. That's why I send you a free kit to give you some ideas and to say a heartfelt thank you. I love you guys and feel very blessed to get to know all of you.
