Ep.#663 ~ Halloween Pillow Box | Treat Holder

Howdy Crafty Friends,
I am having so much fun paper crafting with the Pillow Box Die! It makes creating treat holders a breeze and they look so professional.
Make sure you check out the video below so you can see a cool tip on how to add a layer of designer series paper so line up perfectly. It just pulls the whole project together.
I hope this gives you some fresh inspiration and if you'd like to purchase anything you see in this video, you can shop on my Stampin' Up! website.

Happy Halloweenie Hugs,

Ep. #662 ~ Easy Ink Pad Color Identification

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends,
Have you ever mistakenly inked up your stamp and then put it back down to reink in the wrong pad color? I know I have done this little boo-boo before nad it is a common mistake I have seen happen many times at classes.
I was really surprised when a few of my customers never knew how to mark your ink pads with the stickers provided so this doesn't happen so easily.
Check out my video showing you where you can find these little gems!

Have a wonderful weekend friends ,

Wish Me/Us Luck …

Wish me/us luck friends, in two short weeks we will be moving my craft room into its new home. Our oldest son Steve moved out and I will be moving everything in there. Thus returning my current space back into the workout 🏋️‍♀️ room it is initially intended to be. This isn’t even everything, closets are packed full to the gills and more is in the back storage room. 
I will be doing lots of destash boxes so keep your eye out for some great goodies to be available to purchase at rock bottom prices. 
It’s going to be a big one ~ *sigh*

New Mini Catalog / Aug-Dec 2021

Hi  Everyone,
  I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July as we did… I ate way to much and got way to much sun but had a ball and I am so grateful for all the brave soldiers that fought to give myself and all of us this great freedom and life! 
  I am staying cool in my craft room today creating with some of the new products from the upcoming Mini Catalog. 
  All I can say is … brace yourself for all the gorgeousness and cuteness! 
Here is one example of a card I created today using the Evergreen Elegance Bundle. I used non-traditional Fresh Freesia Ink and card stock as well as the pretty ribbon. I also used the new snowflake embossing folder and I am thrilled with how it turned out.
Stay tuned for more sneak peaks -
Happy Stamping,

More Turtle 🐢 Cuteness!
One more super cute Turtle 🐢 Friends card but this one is using Bermuda Bay Designer Series paper from the Oh So Ombré pack, ink and card stock. 
I am going to make one with Polished Pink - yippee!
Happy Hugs,

Turtle 🐢 Friends are turtly cool!

Well I finally made it into my craft room today. Our daughter Elise had to have back surgery again today and hopefully this abscess on her tailbone will heal correctly once and for all. She sleeping 😴 right now which is the best thing for her… 
I have been so excited to use the Turtle 🐢 Friends Stamp Set #155356 it’s so cute and has a matching punch. 
I made this after I saw the design on the Demonstrator website so I want to thank Nancy Forsberg.
That’s what makes being a Demonstrator so fabulous- the inspiration is everywhere and I have access to all the Stampin’ Up! groups. 
Just one one the many perks!
