Happy Saturday, y’all! Amy and I are getting geared up for another day of learning and fun here in Lost Wages! Yesterday was great, so I know today will be, too! And then tonight we’ll have the final event – which SU has billed as “a unique VIP Vegas experience on the town! We’ll celebrate the end of an unforgettable conference as we enjoy the City of Lights and say our goodbyes.” Last year, in NOLA, we did a Mardi-Gras style parade so…there’s no telling what they’ve got up their sleeves this year! 🎉🎉🎉
Before I left home – I got my August 2023 Paper Pumpkin kit – called the Meaningful Flowers kit. I put one of them together tout suite cuz…boy were they pretty!
There was everything I needed to put together eight beautiful cards – four each of two designs.
Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! I hope your week is going well – and that you’re maybe cooling off a bit? I’d like to tell you it’s getting more pleasant here but – I do hate to lie to my friends!! LOL!
My card today is a sneaky peak at the new Beary Cute bundle – it’s a PUNCH bundle! – coming to you soon in the Sep – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog. I paired it with a new Designer Paper – called A Walk in the Forest. And – the Very Best Occasions stamp set brought my sentiments! Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a theme challenge (and it’s SMACK in my wheelhouse!!) to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table. I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
When someone says “you have to do a fun fold” – I’m all in all the time! I decided that I’d do another Bay Window fold for you – but…this is a Fall themed card. I’m giving you a sneaky peek at another new bundle – coming on 6 Sept! This is the Pick of the Patch bundle – and it’s a PUNCH bundle. Yeah! And – All About Autumn DSP and the Deckled Circles made yet another appearacne. Take a look-see:

Good morning and happy last-day-of-July! Wow. We’re half way thru this year – can you even believe it!? More critically – this is the LAST day of the Earning phase of Bonus Days! That’s right – starting tomorrow – you’ll be able to REDEEM those coupons. If you haven’t collected any yet – or…if you’d like one or two MORE! – then this is the day to get that done! 🙂
My card today is quick – easy – and simple! It features the sweet Nature’s Prints stamp set and coordinating Natural Prints dies. But the real star is the pretty Fresh as a Daisy DSP! Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all – it’s the next-to-last day of the Bonus Days EARNING period! Yep – that’s right. Today and tomorrow – you’ll still be EARNING Bonus Days coupons (one $5 coupon for every $50 spent before shipping and tax). Then – starting on 1 August – you can start to REDEEM them (ie: SPEND them!).
And – this is a SUPER good time to be SURE that you’re on my list to get the new Sept – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog! I’ll be ordering packs and packs of them on 2 August and then mailing them out to everyone who’s ordered $50 or more from me in the last year! Not sure if that includes YOU!? Give me a shout or…go ahead and place an order over $50 (and get another Bonus Days Coupon while you’r at it!) and then you’ll know for SURE!
And – you MIGHT want to pick up the So Very Merry stamp set and a pack or three of One Horse Open Sleigh 6″ x 6″ DSP from the Online Exclusives! With these – and a couple other goodies – you could make today’s pretty Christmas card! Take a look-see:

Good morning. Guess what day it is? Again!? Yep – FRIDAY! Whoo-hoo! We’re teetering on the cusp of the weekend – and you only have to get thru about….8 hours of work before you are FREE!!! 🙂
I pulled out the Lighting the Way stamp set for today’s card and – imagine my surprise when I realized that I had never even mounted the stamps?! They were still on their packing acetate. I was a little gobsmacked! 🤷♀️🤷♀️. But – I made good use of it – and the coordinating dies for this one – and also used my Scalloped Contours dies (which is a true workhorse in any crafter’s tool chest). Take a look-see:
Good morning, y’all! It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. We’ve got a color challenge to work with and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table. I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
For me, the colors in our challenge this week demanded that I use the Inked Botanicals 6″ x 6″ DSP. Which was not a hardship at all – it’s one of my favorite packs of paper! I decided to pair it up with the pretty Marvelous Nature stamp set. Take a look-see!

Happy Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! You know what today is? It’s 5 Days before Bonus Days ENDS! That’s right – just five more days to EARN those Bonus Days Coupons that you’re going to be SPENDING in August! I hate to see folks miss out on free money, don’t you?? 😳
Oh – and this is ALSO the day I (and all active SU! Demonstrators!) get to see the new Sept – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog.
Good morning and welcome back to your work-week! AND – this is the LAST week to earn Bonus Days coupons (that you’l spend in August!). I can’t believe that it’s almost over!
MAYBE you’ll want to add today’s goodies to your stash (while earning those coupons!). It’s the Reach for the Stars bundle, the gorgeous Stargazing DSP and some pretty (shiiinnnyyy) Holographic Trio Specialty Paper! Those are what I used to make a quick and easy card that would be great for…graduation!? A new job?! Starting a new business?? Well – take a look-see and YOU decide!
