Stampin’ Up! Frosted Snowflake Showcase!

Morning, y’all!  Hope the week is treating you well as you get ready for the big day!

I’m in Huntsville – worked for a while, did my meeting – then went and had dinner with a friend and his family – and their pretty darned new and awfully cute little baby boy!  Had such a nice time with them!!  It really made the long drive worthwhile!! Oh – and my meeting was actually quite useful – and also worth the drive! 🙂

I made a quick and easy card for you today – and you’ll be able to put it together fast, too – with the Snowflake Showcase and some Frosted Floral Specialty DSP (and your handy stampapotamus!).  Take a look-see!

Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Pleasant Pheasants Thanksgiving

Good morning!  Happy beginning-of-a-short-week!  And almost-Thanksgiving!  Soon after this post goes live, I’ll be on my way to Huntsville for a meeting or two today and tomorrow.  Then home to start cooking for T-day!  I have deviled eggs, mashed potatoes and a couple of desserts on my to-do list.  And we’re going to be smoking the turkey!  Fingers crossed on that one!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis on YouTube!

My card looks more complicated than it was – which is awesome, right?  Thanks to the pretty Toil & Trouble DSP, Woodland TIEF (and a little bleach), a few leaves from the Seasonal Layers Framelits and some sentiments from Pleasant Pheasants – all the tools were there.  Take a look-see:

Being that it’s Sunday, we’ll get together tonight on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page and make a fun little project!  NOTE:  I’ll be on at 7pm Eastern – an HOUR EARLIER than usual!!  Hope you can join me!

Happy Saturday, y’all!

Hope you’ve got something cool planned for the weekend!  It’s supposed to be gorgeous here so hopefully it’ll dry up a little.  It’s pretty much a soggy mess.  Happy that we don’t have the “snow” phase first!

Stampin’ Up! Breaking News – Holiday Product Availability Update!

Hey guys – Stampin’ Up! made an announcement about the continued availability of some products from the Holiday Catalog and I wanted to pass it along to you for your planning and action!  Here ’tis:


There is always a risk of products selling out without enough time to reorder and restock inventory before a catalog lifecycle is over. When this does happen, it is usually caused by a higher-than-forecasted demand. However, as we upgraded our inventory management system, there were system communication issues with the current holiday catalog and we have just determined that several products are at high risk of early depletion.

We want to share the list of products with you now so you can plan accordingly as you prepare for the holidays.

These products are running low and additional shipments will not be received before the end of the catalog sales period!

  • CHICKEN WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147807)
  • 5/8″ STRIPED BURLAP TRIM (item 147889)
  • IN THE WOODS FRAMELITS DIES (item 147919)*
  • GALVANIZED BUTTONS (item 147891)
  • GALVANIZED CLIPS (item 147806)
  • TAKEOUT THINLITS DIES (item 147927)
  • TRANQUIL TIDE 1/4″ VELVET RIBBON (item 147802)
  • REAL RED 3/8″ MIXED SATIN RIBBON (item 147894)

We don’t know when these products will go out of stock, but it’s possible some may run out as early as next week!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek Gingham Butterfly Gala

Good morning!!  Hard to believe it’s already….HAAAWWWWMPPP DAY!!  Whoo-hoo!  And – one week from tomorrow it’s time for your stretchy pants, huh?  Y’all doing turkey?  Ham?  Turkey AND Ham?!?

We’re in the turkey and ham camp.  We’re going to smoke a turkey this year and let Honeybaked do their thing for the ham.  And then we’re going to try to keep the rest of the over-abundance to a minimum.

I don’t hold out much hope! 😉

So – yesterday was a pretty dreary, cold and rainy day here in GA – and I think that drove my decision to use a new stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog!

Also – I had this…
