New Catalog and Give- Away

Hey folks! Just wanted to let you know that the Aug-Dec 2020 Mini catalog went live today and wanted to take a minute to show you a couple peeks inside and also give you a link where you can download the PDF of the catalog and GO SHOPPING!

There are SO many great things in this catalog – it was hard for me to choose which images to show you. Everything from Halloween and Autumn themed items, Christmas, and even Valentines day themed stamps and dies are showcased in this seasonal catalog.

Super fun gift ideas are also included, like the mini round tins and paper boxes that you can adorn with tags and ribbon for the gift giving season.

The Give-Away!

Now, for the give-away, if you haven’t seen my video yet on the Simply Citrus card kit, you can see it here. Here’s how you can enter for the give away. For every $25 that you spend with me in my online store, you will get one entry for the give away. If you spend $75 you get three entries. I will randomly draw a winner next Monday, August 10th. The winner will receive an all inclusive Simply Citrus card kit AND a 2020-21 annual Stampin’ Up catalog – free of charge.

One last thing – if you accrued any bonus day awards from your July shopping, don’t forget to use them – they are good through the end of August, but then they expire. If you’re still reading, and you’d like a complimentary $5 off coupon to shop with in my store, just email me and I’ll send you one (until I run out of them). I have nine to give away so let me know!

Paper Pumpkin – the June Kit

Hello hello…I just wanted to take a sec to share with you a couple of pictures of my completed card kit from June’s Paper Pumpkin subscription. This was my very first kit, and I was SO impressed. I made ALL of these cards in just over an hours time.

When you subscribe to this kit, each month you will receive a box of goodies complete with all the bits and pieces you need to create and assemble your card projects. Each month is a different theme as well and typically coordinates with the current season or holiday.

Here are the EIGHT cards that I made using all of the supplies that came with this kit and I’m going to be sending out some happy mail love later on today. 🙂

If you’re interested in the sneak peek for the August Paper Pumpkin box, check out the video below. I can’t wait to get mine!

I also want to mention that July is Bonus Days month…If you add enough to your order to reach $50 USD/$60 CAD, Stampin’ Up! will email you a $5 USD/$6 CAD coupon to use in August!” Every $50 you spend gets you another $5 coupon and there’s no limit so shop till you drop!

Deck the Howls – Christmas Card

Hello – thank you for stopping by my blog. Today I have a cute new card to share with you that I made today using the Deck the Howls stamp set by My Favorite Things. There is a coordinating die set to go with this so its very handy to color them up, die cut them out and then play with different ways lay them out to make a scene card.

I decided to go with a snowy scene for my card and used a couple of different hill and slope dies from SSS to create the snow banks. I used distress oxides for the sky background and white acrylic paint to add the falling snow.

I have a video to share with you for this card, so I won’t be long winded in my blog post. Have a look and I’d love for you to leave a comment if you liked this card and video. Have a great day everyone!

Harvest Mice – MFT Stamps

Hello peeps! Here is a cute Thanksgiving card that I put together a few days ago using a new set for me from MFT Stamps. It’s my first time using this set and I had so much fun coloring these little guys with all kinds of fall splendor colors.

This is an A2 sized card and has lots of dimension using craft foam and foam tape. I used my distress inks to add some color to the peek-a-boo windows and this great plaid background stamp from Unity Stamp Company for the card front.

The mice are colored with copics and in the video I show you all the colors I’m using if you’d like to follow along with me on this card. The link to the video is below – grab a cup of tea and settle in for a few minutes to see how I created this fall Thanksgiving card.
