Monthly Archives: September 2018
Hey y’all! Hope your weekend is going well. We got the car taken care of and…test drove the new Odyssey! Looks like Honda has bumped their navigation technology into this century so….they may keep my business when it comes time for a new ride. I LOVE my van. EVERYthing about it. EXCEPT the navigation/technology – it’s like….Pong vs my MacBook! Know what I mean!?
Tomorrow’s a big day – lots of things ending (Bonus Days coupon redemption; Timeless Tidings Project Kit orderability…). And – a couple of things coming (Stamparatus accessories…). Just sayin’ – 1 Oct is huge!
I had so much fun yesterday making plaid with the Buffalo Check background stamp that I thought it might be fun for us to play a little on our live video this evening over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page. Whatcha think? Up for a Buffalo-Checked Plaid-A-Pa-Looza?!? Take a sneaky peek!
Good morning, my peeps! Happy weekend! Hope you have something fun planned. We have Oil Change planned. Bleh.
Did the title of the post take you a-back? It’s Buffalo CHECK, Mary – not PLAID!
Well – but it CAN be plaid! And it can be a plaid background for the lovely Pleasant Pheasants stamp set and a perfect Thanksgiving sentiment. Take a look-see!
Good Friday, y’all! Our taxes are safely in the hands of the accountant. We had a great trip to Montgomery and back yesterday – should have seen me. Phone hooked up and hotspot cooking. Work computer and personal computer doing their thing. Office on wheels working like a boss! 🙂
So – admin note: Stampin’ Up! let us know that the Timeless Tidings Kit is rapidly reaching the point of going on the not-orderable list. Please scroll down to get all the details!
Before we went, I made this card to share with you today, using the new Beautiful Baubles stamp set and a few goodies from the Frosted Bouquet and Pretty Pines die sets. Take a look-see:
Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge and I know you’ll see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop.
I pulled out a set I hadn’t really used yet – the Peaceful Noel stamp set and bundled Sprig Punch and set those against some beautiful Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
Happy Hawmp Day, y’all! This is sort of a cool day for me – I think I mentioned on a Sunday video that I’d been invited to be a guest Tutorial Author on SplitCoast Stampers. And this is the day my tutorial goes live! 🙂
The card that I made for the tutorial – Dina Kowal asked me to do a Shutter Gate Card for it – was made with the new Country Home stamp set and Country Lane DSP. Take a look-see:
Morning, y’all! It’s Tuesday!
Arntcha glad I show up every morning to keep you on track with the days of the week?
It’s National Math Storytelling Day. Apparently Math Storytelling is a thing.
Also…did you know that September is Velociraptor Awareness Month?
Yes – it’s true. You still have time to send a handmade card to your favorite neighborhood velociraptor. I know he or she will appreciate it. Probably more than if you try to tell him or her a math story…
Perhaps the card will be a Christmas card – and you might want to make this one. It uses the Host-Exclusive Hung With Care stamp set. And some wonderful Festive Farmhouse DSP plaid paper. Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! Well – it’s back to the real world and the grind and all that yada yada that is life-outside-an-inkin’-krew-retreat.
But – we’re already making plans for the Second Annual Inkin’ Krew Retreat – YEAH! – AND we’ll see a lot of these wonderful ladies in November at OnStage (plus some team members who weren’t able to attend this weekend). So…whoo-hoo!
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate it and hope you enjoyed the time! If not, but would like to watch the almost-but-totally-not-instant replay….here ’tis!
Mornin’, y’all! Hope you’re having a great weekend – I know I am! 🙂
I’ll be home tonight in time to do our Sunday night Facebook Live get-together, so I hope you’ll be able to join me! I’ll be on at 8 pm eastern on my Stamps-N-Lingers page.
Amy and I both did a presentation on our last day highlighting a suite in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. I chose the Country Lane suite to use – so I made a couple of projects to share with the ladies. I’ll show you a couple of these later in the week – but for tonight….I’m going to show you the make-and-take we did. Take a sneaky-peek:
Good Saturday morning, y’all, from the Ellijay mountains in North Georgia!
As I write this, we’re doing shoebox swaps after our fine dinner prepared by Chef James! Check out the Finn-Fan-Fix-not-featuring-Finn for more on our Retreat!
The card I have for you today is an elegant Christmas project using the new Flourish Filigree stamp set and some Joyous Noel Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
