Eden’s Garden is HERE!

Greetings everyone! I wanted to pop in today and show you a new product collection that is just released today, called Eden’s Garden. This beautiful bundle will be featured in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog and it is available to you now as an early release.

You are going to want to snatch up this suite of products now, because the specialty papers that coordinate are only available until Jan 3rd or until it sells out. So that means the bundle (stamp and die set) will be available in the new catalog, but the papers and gems you have to get now!

If you have not yet started your holiday cards – you might want to consider this bundle because it would make some gorgeous holiday themed cards. This set is also very versatile and can be used for friendship or sympathy cards as well. Lots of options here!

Here is a closer look at what is included in this collection.

Each of the above products can be purchased individually, or you can purchase the entire suite with the Eden’s Garden Collection, which includes everything you see above and the cost is $82.

  • Eden’s Garden Bundle (10% off)
  • Ever Eden 12″ x 12″ Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • Ever Eden 12″ x 12″ Cotton Paper
  • Garden Gems

Are you ready to shop this suite! Just click on the shop now button below and it will take you to my online store and it will automatically apply my current host code to your order.

I will have more ideas to show you next week, but for now, here is a card that I made with the suite that I sent out to my team for our monthly card swap. So pretty – you are going to love this collection!

Took a short break!

Hello everyone…I wanted to pop in super quick and let you know that I have been away for about a week, but I am back on Wednesday and in full swing again! We snuck out of the chilly rainy Seattle weather to visit our happy place in Surprise, AZ where the weather is absolutely perfect right now! In addition to just checking in on our house and making sure everything was still good from when we were last there in April, we squeezed in some golf and got to visit with some friends as well, so it was a great trip.

If I can get my act together, I plan to have a FB live on Thursday at 11am. Im thinking of showcasing the Delivering Cheer stamp set and it’s so adorable. I just love it. It works great for Christmas time or Birthdays, so I’ll show you how I pull those two styles together with this set.

Don’t forget, that anyone who orders from me this month will get a handmade thank you card (made by me) along with a little something extra just because I can! So, don’t delay – let’s go shopping!

Peaceful Deer Stamp & Punch Bundle

Greetings everyone. My project of the week is here! I have two card projects to share using the Peaceful Deer bundle. The first project is a pretty Christmas card and I have used the Tiding of Christmas designer series paper to coordinate. I love this designer series paper – it really is so beautiful and makes the best cards. If you don’t have this paper yet – you need it! I promise.

Here is the inside of the card. I stamped snowflakes (from the Peaceful deer stamp set) around the sentiment and added some pine trees at the bottom. The trees are not stamped in full strength – they are done in evening evergreen which is stamped off once to make the ink not so intense. I love the inside of this card and will be using this theme a lot this year. Project Supplies and dimensions are listed at the bottom of this post.

The second project was this A2 sized gift card holder. It’s a cute pocket card that opens on the side. There is an insert that pulls out to reveal a gift card inside. The paper used is from the Peaceful Prints DSP which is a Sale-A-Bration paper – so that means you can only get this as a reward for shopping with Stampin Up. The ribbon embellishment on this is called the Black & White Gingham ribbon which has been wildly popular this year. It’s on back order currently but expected back in soon, so check back next week – I think it will be restocked by then.

Super Simple & Cute Halloween Card

Well, I thought I was almost done with halloween cards, but then I went and joined a Halloween card swap and committed to making 12 more cards! So, I needed a simple design and something I could do very quickly – AND, it had to be cute, right?

So, I can’t take credit for this design — I CASE’d this card from @julieannepitta who is also my Stampin’ Up upline and has a great blog over at 2340westnewton.blogspot.com. You should definitely go check her out – she is creative like no other!

For this card, I used the Clever Cats and Frightfully Cute stamp sets. The little images in these sets are so cute and fun for Halloween. The little spider is my favorite. I adore him.

The card base is made with Pumpkin Pie and the DSP paper is the coordinating halloween themed paper for these stamp sets called Cute Halloween. These are all available now in our Mini Catalog. Hop on over to my online store to grab these sets while they last!

Here’s a picture of the inside – which by the way is also adorable, don’t you think?

I made a REALLY fast video – I mean like under 3 minutes fast – so it will take you no time at all to click the video link below and have a look at how this card comes together.

Here is a list of all the products used in this project.

Thanks for stopping by! I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you think of this sweet Halloween card. Would you make it?
