Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Ends Today!!

Hey y’all – this is my second post for the day.  I’m not entirely sure my morning post – with the highlighter pen holders – posted like it was supposed to do.  If you didn’t get a notice – and thus didn’t see those quick and easy projects – you can check them out right here.

I also wanted to be sure that everyone saw my important public service announcement:


Which means that today is the LAST DAY for three important things…

First – DOUBLE Peppermint Points on all orders over $50 (before Shipping and Tax)!

Stampin’ Up! A Whole Lot of Lovely True Gentleman Marker Holder

Hey, y’all!  Welcome to the weekend.  Again!  Wow.  Time is flying – Sale-A-Bration ends TODAY!  So…if you’ve been “waiting till the last minute”….uhm….the last minute is upon you! 😉

Friday was busy for me – Finn to the vet (he’s fine!), real-work busy-ness, horse-shoer….bottom line, when I got ready to get a project together to share with you for today, I needed to select from one of my quicker to-do-list goodies!

Enter…the Sharpie Holder! 🙂

I’d seen this quick and fun project on Pinterest – from The Papered Chef – and thought they’d be fun to make.  And since they’re quick and easy – they’re perfectly perfect if you need a bunch of them!  The base is simply a strip of DSP – I used the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP – and a sentiment.  I grabbed one from Truly Tailored – the punny-ness of it was just too cool.  Take a look-see:

A New Look for Stamps-N-Lingers, an Ordering Special and a Little Blog Candy!

Good morning, y’all!

Well? What do you think of the new look?

There’s probably a little tweaking left to do, but…I’m loving it – and sending a great big Thank You to Jane from Fancy That Jane who managed to fulfill all my requests!  Dogwoods – pines – and the pony!  Plus – my favorite wood background!  Remind you of any particular paper in the Wood Textures DSP? 😉

Now – if you’ll forgive me the indulgence – I’m going to pat myself on the back just a smidge.

Yesterday, at the grocery store, I ran into my good friend.

Only – she looked right at me and didn’t recognize me!

Guess that’s what dropping 106 pounds will do, eh? 🙂

Yep. That’s the current number!

So – my loss is your gain!  Literally!

For today and tomorrow only – I’m offering DOUBLE Peppermint Points on all orders over $50 (before Shipping and Tax)!

Stampin’ Up! You’re Inspiring Hope for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! It’s sketch week and we’ve got the full complement of hoppers today!  Do be sure to check out all their projects when you’re done here, won’t you?

I decided it was time for an Easter card – so, I combined the wonderful Cross of Hope Framelits with the gorgeous You’re Inspiring daffodils – and added some Springtime Foils DSP!  Take a look-see:

Here’s the sketch we were playing with.

Stampin’ Up! Wood Textures Easter Basket (weave!)

Happy happy Hawwwwmp day!  Hope your week is going well!

Before I get to the project for today – I need to clarify something on the twist-and-pop-up card measurements.  I’d inadvertently put a bad measurement for the “mechanism” on the blog posts for the two cards I made.  Here’s the real numbers:  2 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.  I’ve fixed the posts already to reflect the correct numbers – but…if you’ve been trying to make one of your own – this measurement will work much more better! 🙂

Okay – now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started! The other day at our team meeting, we made a fun little 3-D project that Amy designed for us.  I decided to do a little bit of modification and add a few little fun goodies.  It uses the Basket Weave Dynamic TIEF….the Daisy Punch and…the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  Take a look-see:

The little basket is fun and easy! Continue reading

Good morning!  It’s Tuesday – which means it’s time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  

I’ve got another Twist and Pop-out card for you today – I told you I would! 🙂  Today’s version, though, is a much different look!  I used Wood Textures DSP and the Sale-A-Bration Blossoming Basket bundle (you’ve got 5 more days to get this gorgeous bundle for free with a $100 purchase!) and the lovely Hanging Garden stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  Take a look-see:

Our Stamp Ink Paper challenge #143 is a theme this week – hope you’ll come play along! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Pop-Out Birthday

Mornin’, my peeps!  Here we are, back at work, heh?  Man – the weekend goes so fast, doesn’t it?  Hope yours was good.

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thanks so much for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not and you’d like to watch, here’s the YouTube replay.  Fair warning – we did do the fun-fold in the card I’m sharing with you today.  But we made a completely different card (which, OBTW, you’ll see tomorrow!).  Check it out.

The card that I gave you a sneak peek of on Sunday is a pop-and-twist fun fold card.  It uses the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and some of the too-fun Picture Perfect Party DSP.  It’s a party in paper and card stock!  Take a look-see:

Of course, the funnest part of this card comes when you open it! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Delightful Daisy and a Charming Cafe

Good morning!  How’s it going today?  Do you have a good weekend planned? Hope so!

I did a quick and easy card today – very simple design, using an old favorite (well, not so very old, maybe!) – the Daisy Delight stamp set, bundled Daisy Punch and Delightful Daisy DSP – combined with a pretty sentiment from the Occasions stamp set called Charming Cafe.  Take a look-see:

I used the color scheme from this week’s Color Throwdown.  I love the Black/White/Any Color combination, don’t you? Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! March Paper Pumpkin Sneak Peek and an Alternative!

Happy Friday, y’all!  Another weekend looms and hopefully it will be a nice one!  We’ve had a bit of a cold snap here – ever hear of “Dogwood Winter”??  Yea.  Neither had I, but it appears to be a “thing” here in Georgia.  The Dogwoods bloom and we have another little bout of “winter”.  Hence…Dogwood Winter.

Who knew??

So – I got my March Paper Pumpkin the other day and pulled all the pieces and parts out.

It’s pretty gorgeous, y’all!

Instead of making the kit per the directions, I decided to make an alternative card with some of those wonderful elements – including the “special gift”!  And I added in a little embossing with the Petal Pair TIEF (free now during SAB with a $50 purchase!).  Take a look-see:

Now – if you want to see the May Good Things Grow kit as it was “planned” – here’s a quick video!  If you want to remain surprised when you open yours, scroll right on by! 🙂 Continue reading
