Stampin’ Up! Full of Love & Inspired Thoughts CAS Sympathy Card

Happy Happy Hawwmmp Day  It’s the LAST day of August (sheesh – can you even believe it?!) AND the LAST day of Sale-A-Bration!  Yikes!  So there’s still time to get those free goodies that you haven’t gotten yet – all while taking advantage of Double Peppermints!

My card today is a challenge.  A personal one.  While some folks are put off and intimidated by layers and fussy cutting and bows and bling…I am intimidated by….the single layer card.

Yes.  It’s true.  A single layer sparks fear in my heart.  So I decided to – sort of! – confront that head on.  I pulled out the Full of Love and Inspired Thoughts stamp sets and simply…stamped.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Fresh Cut Flowers & Stems Sneak Peek with Celebrating You!

Good morning – and happy there’s-only-15-days-left-for-Sale-A-Bration!  Can you believe it?  It’s sort of hard to get my head around.  Here’s another reality check…There are – as of today – 131 days to Christmas!  Plenty of time, right?!?

You’re welcome.

Now.  That 15 days is ALSO how many days there are until the Perfect Partners promotion kicks off!  Yep – that’s the one with the amazing die sets that coordinate with your favorite Annual and Mini Catalog stamp sets!  Since we’re getting close, I didn’t feel TOO guilty sharing another Sneak Peek with you!  This one will give you a look at the Fresh Cut Stems dies – that coordinate with the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  Another AC set – Celebrating You – gave me my sentiments.  Take a look-see:

Good morning on weekend-eve!  Do you have fun plans this weekend?  I think we’ve got “get hay” on the list – but…might have to wait till we see how the rain chances REALLY are – they seem to change every time we check! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled & Sending Smiles Note to Say Hello

Good morning and happy Memorial Day.  I hope you get to enjoy the day with your family and friends – and spend a moment or three thinking of the men and women who never came home.

I have an admin note for you!  For those of you who do join or plan to join my Zoom the Craftroom sessions – I’m officially canceling today’s session!!  Between the holiday and folks having plans – and my ever GROWING list of things to do between now and Saturday – let’s just call it a day, shall we??  And – so that you can plan your week and month – let’s go ahead and cancel all Zoom the Craftroom sessions between now and the 20 June session, okay?  I’ll be out of town for a couple of weeks and don’t know what the internet will support.  So…rather than have everyone wondering where I am….I’m making the decision now!  Sorry for any disappointment, y’all!  I’ll be back on the 20th, though, so hope to see you then! 🙂

Now – my card today is one that I really like.  It’s got pretty flowers & pops of color from the Sending Smiles bundle (a heavy favorite for me!!) atop black-and-white Perfectly Penciled DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Heart & Home Note Cards and Gift Box

Good morning and HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWMP DAY!!  I hope your week is going well!

Before we get going, I’d like to remind you about my Fundraiser for the folks so dreadfully impacted by this week’s tornadoes in AR, KY and IL.  Scroll down to see how YOU can help – and see how to maybe win a brand spanking new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!

So for today, I’ve got a sweet little gift set for you – with a gift box and three little notecards & envelopes.  I used the Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating Heart & Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for the note cards.  And I made a gift box for them by decorating a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box with a Blessings of Home Bundle image, sentiment and some foliage atop Heart & Home DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Ever Eden’s Garden Sneak Peek Arrow Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Friday!  My fave day of the week!  Not cuz we’re headed into the weekend (although after working for 30 some-odd years, I DO still gaze at the next 48 hours of being “off” with affection!).  No.  It’s cuz this is Miss Sonya day!  By 2pm – my house will be Finn-fuzz-free and smelling all fresh!

By 5pm …the Finn-fuzz with have returned.  But boy do I love that 3 hours each week! 😂😂😂

If you were able to join me yesterday afternoon for my YouTube tutorial, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay – here ’tis!

And – I am not a dumb woman.  I’m an engineer.  But – the first few minutes…sheesh.  My brain stopped doing math.  Like…at all.  So…bear with me, y’all! 🙂

This card is an Arrow Fun Fold, which seems to be all over the internet right now – but I used measurements from Lisa Curcio to get started.

This is another fun sneak peek of the Eden’s Garden stamp set and bundled Eden Dies – with the gorgeous Ever Eden Specialty DSP.   Take a look-see:
