New Catalog Launch

Stampin’ Up! Spooktacular Boo To You Sneak Peek!

Good morning!  Big day ahead for us Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!  Yep – this is the day we can start getting registered for the November OnStage!  That’s one of two events we have each year where we get together to see old (and new!) friends, get a look at the next catalog (in this case – the 2020 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogs), and …. get free goodies!  All in all – it’s a ton of fun and something we all look forward to attending (and is a HUGE benefit of being a demonstrator!!  This time, we’ve got one of the Local events right here in Atlanta!  Whoo-hooo!!!

But – before that happens, we’re all going to have a chance to play with some truly awesome goodies from the wunnermus 2019 Holiday Catalog – starting on 4 Sept!  The card I have for you today is another little Sneak Peek – this time from the Spooktacular Bash suite!  I used the Boo To You stamp set, some Monster Bash DSP and a little spider from the Wicked Dies to make a Halloween card!  Take a look-see:

Check out those goo-goo-googly eyes!! How fun are they?  🙂

The layout for this one is from the As You See It challenge…

And the color scheme is from the TGIF color challenge.

I started with two fun papers from the Monster Bash DSP – cobwebs above a bookshelf.  That seems pretty realistic to me! 😉  I matted the two pieces onto a Basic Black mat with Liquid Glue to make the card front.

Then I wrapped some new Basic Black 3/8″ Scalloped Lace Trim around the seam – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I cut a Whisper White circle with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Die and stamped the adorably frightful….uhm….Horn Monster?…on it in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I colored it (him?  her?) with my Light and Dark Highland Heather and Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I also used a Terracotta Tile (horn dots) and Crushed Curry (teeth and toe-nails) Stampin’ Write Marker, too.  Then I popped him onto the card front with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals (these are brand new in the 2019 Holiday Catty – and you get regular and mini dimensionals in the pack!).  Be still my beating heart!! 😉

The sentiment – also from Boo To You – is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and cut with one of the many (many!!) awesome frame dies in the new Ornate Frames Dies (this is bundled with the Spooktacular Bash stamp set for a not-scary 10% savings!).  I edged it with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it with Liquid Glue and a black dimensional.

I stamped the “Boo” from the second sentiment stamp in Boo To You three times in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White – then fussy cut them and edged them in Basic Black.  I adhered them ever-so-spookily around the spider webs with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Wicked Dies and cut 3 really cute little spiders from Basic Black and popped them all onto the card front with….BLACK Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final – and most perfect touch of all! – is two perfect Googly Eyes in Granny Apple Green, adhered with Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set in Highland Heather on a Whisper White panel.  Next to it is a Boo To You zombie-dude in Tuxedo Black.  He’s colored with Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  His trousers are Terracotta Tile.  And then – a couple more Googly Eyes!!  Adding another little Wicked spider just seemed like the right thing to do!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Basic Black mat and into a Granny Apple Green card base, popped the card front on with BLACK Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

The front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope got another zombie dude….

…and some more spider-webby Monster Bash DSP on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  Okay, you guys – I really love the Halloween offerings in this Holiday Catalog!  I think the characters in Boo To You are so cute it’s ridiculous – and the Assorted Googly Eyes just make them POP!!  Add in the Spooktacular Bash and matching Ornate Frames Dies, some Monster Bash DSP and an assist frrom the Wonderfully Wicked bundle – and….you’ve got the makings of a Spooky Good Time this Halloween!  I hope you like!

If these look fun – I’d urge you to take a look at my Special Bundle #5 – the Wicked Good Fun Bundle!

Stampin’ Up! Night Before a Holly Jolly Christmas Sneak Peek

Good morning, my peeps!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Mine has been uneventful – which is good.  But…not awfully productive.  Which is…not so good! 😉

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If not – but you’d like to see what I did with the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season dies – here’s the replay!

I used the Holly Jolly Bundle with some Night Before Christmas DSP and Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack stickers to create a fun 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you.  Take a look-see:

I – rather loosely! – used the sketch from this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch for the layout. 🙂

And the color scheme is from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

I started with some Santa Hat paper from the Night Before Christmas DSP (available on 4 Sept), matted on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I took a small piece of Very Vanilla and, using a Sponge Dauber, inked it up with Pretty Peacock.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and picked a likely sentiment – that’s just ONE of the fun Christmas-y stickers in the pack, y’all! – and adhered it at the bottom of the panel.

With the Jolly Season Die, I cut Santa and his reindeer from Soft Suede and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

I added a Cherry Cobbler rhinestone from the new Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the sentiment banner.  Then, cuz…hello?  Rudolph??  I colored a small Pearl Basic Jewel with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend and added it to the lead reindeer’s schnoozle. 😉

Finally – I added a bunch of new Snowflake Sequins with teensy dabs of Liquid Glue – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set in Pretty Peacock on a Very Vanilla panel.  In the bottom corner, I added Santa in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – then colored him and his toys with my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light and Dark Soft Suede, Light Pretty Peacock and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  I also used my Cherry Cobbler and Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Write Markers.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Soft Suede card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another Holly Jolly Christmas Santa on the front…

…and some more of the Santa Hat Night Before Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a fun suite!  Night Before Christmas – with the Holly Jolly Christmas bundle and wonderful DSP – not to mention the Memories & More Card Pack (and there’s notecards and envelopes, too!) – is a great addition to your Christmas card-making repertoire!  I hope you like! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Crowd Sneak Peek!

Good morning – guess what?? It’s FRIDAY!!  Which means we’re teetering on the brink of THE WEEKEND! Whooo-hooo!! 🙂

I’ve got a super sweet – super simple – super quick! – 2019 Holiday Catalog sneak peek for you today.  It uses a little set that you might have overlooked in the catalog – called Christmas Crowd!  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches for the layout.

And the Black-White-Cherry Cobbler color scheme is from The Paper Players this week!

This is quick, so…buckle-up, buttercup!

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the main image and a sentiment from the new Christmas Crowd stamp set – coming on 4 Sep AND available as part of my Snow Much Fun Special Bundle 10! – in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I matted it on Cherry Cobbler for the card front.

I used my Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends to color various parts of the image.  I pulled the Cherry Cobbler Watercolor Pencil from the Watercolor Pencils Assortment 2 to every-so-lightly color Santa’s nose.

I ran a length of new Cherry Cobbler 3/8″ Diagonal Stripe Ribbon (also coming 4 Sept – and is the FREE gift with Cozy Christmas Special Bundle #9!) – around the panel and secured it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I used a shorter length and tied a faux bow.

I added a few Cherry Cobbler jewels from the new Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (yes – you can get this FREE, too – check out the bundle lists!!) here and there, a couple three gold Metallic Pearls, and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Christmas Crowd sentiment in Tuxedo Black to a Whisper White panel.  Then, using the little snowflake image, I inked and stamped it in Tuxedo Black, stamped it off TWICE and added it all around the sentiment.  I added a few Gold Metallic Pearls and some Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the Christmas Crowd on the front…

…and more snowflakes on the envelope flap.  I inked and stamped it off once and then stamped the flap twice without re-inking…then I colored some of the little circles with my Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.

Et Voila!  Is that not the cutest and cheeriest Christmas Crowd EVER!!?  I love this image – and the accompanying sentiments are tons of fun!!  I hope you like – and are adding it to your Gotta-Have-It list!!

September 4 is fast approaching!  Which means…we’re approaching the time for me to order your Special Bundles – so…get on the bandwagon – before it’s gone! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


Y’all ever buy dog training treats?  Little – usually chewy (vs crunchy) – bites so be given – and eaten! – quickly during training.

Well – I got a bag at Christmas and have used them.  And Finn loves them.  SHOCKER! 🙂

But – they fall apart in my pocket/pouch – and they’re a little…spendy!

So – I ran across a thing called a Silicon Pyramid Mat (on Amazon – where else??) – they’re supposed to be used as hot pads on your counter.  BUT – they ALSO can be used to make peanut butter-flavored dog treats.

I’d been wanting to make a batch – just to try them.  Yesterday – in a fit of spoil-your-dog-domesticity, I did it!

Super easy – and…Two of those mats and one batch of the recipe made about a thousand million of them!

As advertised, they were soft and chewy.  Since one of the things I don’t like about the commercial ones is that very chewy-ness….I DID stick mine in my oven on low for an hour to crunch-i-fy them!

Now – the recipe I used said that the lady’s daughter was eating the treats as fast as she could roll them out of the mat.

So…I tried one.

Uhm…hmm.  NOT sure what her daughter USUALLY eats, but…  No.  Just…no.

But Finny likes them and they’re going to be awesome training treats!!

Whoo-hoo!

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Christmas Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s Hop is a color challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with –  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop!

So – each week, we all build our blog posts early and then provide the shortlinks for all the ladies in the hop (that’s how we make our list that y’all can use to hop around and see everyone’s projects!).  THIS week – and I’m going to use “newly-retired-and-sort-of-flailing-around” brain as my excuse – I looked at our color challenge and then promptly got dumb.  I decided to use a new stamp set, called Cup of Christmas (coming on 4 Sept!!), from the 2019 Holiday Catalog to give you a little Christmas sneak peek – even though the color challenge is about as NON-Christmas-y as you can get without a pretty big stretch.  Take a look-see and…you’ll start to see the difficulty I had! 🙂

…and the color challenge.

Doesn’t really SCREAM Christmas, huh? 😉

I also used a sketch from FabFriday for my layout.

I wanted to show y’all this fun stamp set – called Cup of Christmas – and it’s matching (bundled) Cup of Cheer Dies, which is why it was in my head, I guess.  Here’s what’s so fun – this set represents a new line that SU! is bringing to us – the “Reversibles”.  It has two stamps in it that you can…literally…stamp-clean-turn over on the acrylic block-and stamp the mirror image!  These four images were made using just two stamps in the Cup of Christmas set!  Cool beans, huh? 🙂

Okay – now let’s get to the card, shall we?

I took a Whisper White panel and embossed it in the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, cut it down to size and matted it on Crushed Curry for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Garden Green DSP from the Regals 6″ x 6″ DSP pack and matted it on Crushed Curry, too.

On a seperate piece of Whisper White, I stamped the Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry – then I cut it out with the left-handed die in the Cup of Cheer Die set (yes, there’s a left-handed and a right-handed die to cut those mirror images!!).  I also cut a solid peppermint candy cane.  From a piece of Blushing Bride – I cut the “striped” candy cane die.

After cutting the cup – I stamped it a few times with the poinsettia image from Cup of Christmas in Tuxedo Black – then I colored the flowers with my Blushing Bride and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers.  I added some doodle-dots around the flowers and sentiment with my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the two candy cane die cuts together and then to the card front with Liquid Glue – then I popped the cup over with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the “whipped cream” – I used new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (coming in the new catty on 4 Sept) and built up some puffy whipped cream.  Then I added a little of the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and sprinkled it with some new Ice Stampin’ Glitter (both also new and available on 4 Sept).

I adhered a short length of new Garden Green 3/8″ Double-Stitched Ribbon (availa 4 Sept) to the cup with Liquid Glue.  The embellishment is two Garden Green holly leaves cut with a die in the Cup of Cheer set – and another poinsettia in Blushing Bride – cut with its matching die.

I tied a little bow from some Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a dab of Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front and it was done!

On the inside, on a Whisper White panel, I stamped a second Cup of Christmas sentiment in Crushed Curry and a line of little holly leaves in Garden Green.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crushed Curry mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Cup of Christmas holly on the front…

…and some Garden Green DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I really love this Cup of Christmas stamp set – those Reversibles are FUN!! – and the matching Cup of Cheer dies, don’t you?  I think they’re really going to be a heckuvan addition to your Christmas card tool box!  I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Let It Snowman Season Sneak Peek!

Happy….uhm.  Hmmm.

Wait – don’t tell me.  Let me guess.

Monday?

Yes.  Yes – that’s it.  Happy Monday!

See?  Embracing my retired status like a boss! LOL!

I’ve got a quick and easy, clean and simple sneak peek Christmas Card for you today!  It uses the new Snowman Seasons stamp set and Let It Snow Specialty DSP from the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  And…some really uber-adorable enamel shapes from the new Let it Snow Embellishment Kit.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge!

I started with some new Let It Snow Specialty DSP (coming on 4 Sept!) in Real Red and matted it on Coastal Cabana for the card front. Next up is a smaller piece of Whisper White – also matted on Coastal Cabana – and then adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I cut three small squares with the Stitched Shapes Dies in Whisper White and popped them onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  In the open space, I stamped a sentiment from the new Snowman Season stamp set (avail on 4 Sept) in Real Red.  Over top, I stamped a snowflake in Coastal Cabana.

I built the three snowmen using pieces from the new (and wonderful!!) Let It Snow Embellishment Kit!

I “built” the snowmen with large “coal” enamel shapes for eyes, “carrots” and…a Shaded Spruce felt scarf (adhered with Liquid Glue).

And…that was it for the card front.  Super quick and super simple!

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Snowman Season in Real Red on a Whisper White panel.  Over top I stamped the snowflakes in Coastal Cabana – stamping twice without re-inking.  In the bottom corner, I added a top hat in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – and colored it with my Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers.  Then I added more of the enamel shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Coastal Cabana mat and into my Real Red card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Coastal Cabana snowflakes on the front…

…and I added some more Let It Snow Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!!  I am completely in love with the entire Let It Snow Suite – in particular the Snowman Season stamp set and Let It Snow DSP! And – the felt and enamel shapes in the Let It Snow Embellishment kit are totes-adorbs!  I hope you like and are adding this suite to your shopping list for the arrival of the 2019 Holiday Catalog on 4 Sept!

Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?

Me, neither!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT: Missouri and Texas – heads up – it’s YOUR turn! This is YOUR weekend – don’t miss out!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Stampin’ Up! Detailed Band Together Birthday Card

Happy Sunday, y’all!  How goes the weekend?

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the replay – which…includes a pretty extensive sneak peek at the goodies in the 2019 Holiday Catalog! – here’s the instant-ish replay!

For this one, I used the Band Together stamp set and bundled Detailed Bands Dies (you’ll save 10% by buying them as a bundle!!) to make a cheerful and feminine birthday card.  Take a look-see:

I played along with this week’s CAS Colour’s & Sketches Double Challenge – has to use the colors and the sketch!

I started with a panel of Mint Macaron and stamped the big flower from the Band Together stamp set in Mint Macaron a couple of times.  Then I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Subtle 3D Folder.

I cut it down to size and matted it on Shaded Spruce for the card front.

Using the Detailed Bands Dies, I cut some Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce leaves.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped just the flower (three times) and some leaves in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When they were all good and dry, I cut them out with their matching dies in the Detailed Bands set.

I used Light and Dark Rococo Rose and Light and Dark Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to color the flowers and leaves.TTFN

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere everything onto the card front.

For the sentiment, I cut the band from a piece of Mint Macaron using the die in the Detailed Bands set.  I saved the largest cut-out piece.  Then I adhered the band to another piece of Mint Macaron with Liquid Glue and fussy cut it (to create a solid band).  Then I used a little more Liquid Glue to adhere the large cut-out piece back into the middle of the die.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the band onto the card front – wrapped the ends around and secured them on the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the sentiment from Band Together in Rococo Rose on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the oval die in Detailed Bands.  Then I used my Rococo Rose Stampin’ Write Marker to make faux stitches.

I adhered the sentiment with Liquid Glue and adhered a tiny Linen Thread Bow and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Band Together in Rococo Rose on a Whisper White panel.  Then I inked the large flower in Mint Macaron, stamped it off once, and stamped it in the corner of the panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Shaded Spruce mat and into my Rococo Rose card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a couple of stamped-off-once Mint Macaron flowers on the front…

…and another one on the back of the envelope (I used my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to fill in the “gaps” between the envelope and the flap!)

Et Voila!  Isnt’ this a pretty bundle?  Band Together – with its big, bold flower and handy leaves, plus the wonderful sentiments – pairs perfectly with the delicate die cuts in the Detailed Bands Die set!  I love the possibilities!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix


The Finn-ster yielded his spot today so that I could share a couple of pictures of one of my favorite people!

I met this young man almost a year ago.

The Big Ginger guy – one of my OTHER favorite people – is his Dad.  Mom – who took the pic – well – yep.  Another favorite person. 🙂

Fair to say that this is one of my favorite families – ever!!

So – this past week, while we were in Huntsville, we were lucky enough to catch them all at home – so…we invaded!

Little Ginger was teething and yet…barely a frown!  One of the happiest tiny humans I’ve ever met, really!  I got to spend about an hour with him in my lap and rocking him – and it was pretty danged nice, to tell you the truth!

The next day, while we were waiting for the “here’s-some-food-now-get-out-and-let-us-get-back-to-making-the-world-safe-for-democracy” event, I found something that simply had to go to the Little Ginger Man.

I do believe he liked it!

Is he not ridiculously cute??

Little Ginger Man hit the lottery in the gene game.  He’s going to be a very handsome gentleman.  AND – with his parents help, he’s going to be a real gentleman, in every sense of the word – his daddy most surely is!  And his mom – well.  She’s wunnermus and I’m so happy to call her my friend – and she’s raising her little man just right!

Can’t wait to watch him grow! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Vol 2!

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was awesome – and that your week ahead is looking promising.

On Friday – okay and again on Saturday! – I promised the continuation of the 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek.  So….since I’m mostly true to my word, let’s get ‘er done! 🙂

We ended up last week with the Feels Like Frost Suite – so…let’s move into Fall!  There’s a lot of goodness to share so…get comfy!

The Come To Gather Suite is the perfect way to usher in a season of crisp leaves and thanks!

The featured Gather Together stamp set and bundled Gathered Leaves dies go together perfectly – with the dies embossing and cutting at the same time for easy Fall projects!

The final suite in the new catalog is the adorable Spooktacular Bash Suite!  If you love all-things Halloween, then this is the place for you!  The Spooktacular Bash stamp set – with its bundled Ornate Frames Dies – are the perfect accompaniment to the Monster Bash DSP.  Those dies even cut out images in the DSP!  Doesn’t get much easier than that!

Okay – that’s the suites.  Let’s look at some other fun bundles and goodies!

Have you heard that…it’s okay to be Itty Bitty?  Well – it TIS!  Especially if we’re talking about the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle with its Christmas Layers Dies!

The Bells Are Ringing Bundle includes Christmas sentiments and the 11 piece Detailed Bells Dies – perfect for creating stamped and cut bells and boughs and bows!

Do you like snowglobes?  Ever wished you could put one on a card!  Well….you’ll be able to when you use the Still Scenes Bundle – with the Still Scenes stamp set and bundled Snow Globe Scenes Dies.  AND – be sure to pick up a pack of new Snow Globe Shaker Domes – with their handy adhesive strips – and some new Snowflake Sequins.  Snow Globe Shaker card?  Done!!

If you’re an ice skater – or a wanna be ice skater – or…you WATCH ice skating on tv!…then you’re going to love the Free Skate Bundle!

As we segue into the Fall section of the catalog, we come across the Harvest Hellos Bundle!  This is a stamp set (Harvest Hellos) and Punch (Apple Builder) bundle!  Make apples – whole and slices! – and pumpkins!  All with the same bundle!

If you’re looking for a season-spanning bundle, look no further than the To Every Season Bundle!  This one has something for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Christmas and Thanksgiving.  And THIS is a punch bundle, too!  Loves me some punches!! 🙂

Also giving you multi-holiday options is the Tags Tags Tags Bundle!

Okay – if the Spooktacular Bash suite isn’t enough Halloween for you…here’s a wonderfully wicked word die – featured in the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle!

And also in the Halloween theme…check out the uber-cute Boo To You stamp set.  And…there’s GOOGLE-Y EYES!!

Now – I’m not usually a google-y eye person, but…I fully intend to get these and this set!!

Next up in the holiday line-up…New Year’s!  There’s the Cheers To That bundle…

…Sip Sip Hooray – with matching and bundled Sip & Celebrate Dies!

Hang with me – almost there!

We’ve got a couple of truly fun Kits for you!  First up…the All-Inclusive Joy Of Giving Tag Kit! There’s a 17-piece stamp set and even a Poppy Parade Ink Spot and an Acrylic Block.  What a WONDERFUL GIFT for someone (or for yourself!)!!

And there’s the countdown Advent Calendar Project kit, as well!  This one is not all-inclusive, so you’ll need to purchase the “basics” and the Christmas Countdown stamp set separately!  But look what you’ll make!! 🙂

Last up – we’ve got a couple of sweet Host Sets.  Remember that Host sets can only be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards – whcih you can earn either by hosting a workshop or placing an individual order with at least $150 in retail sales!  You could select the Greatest Part of Christmas…

…or the Holiday Haul stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! has also brought back the Be a Difference Maker stamp set for the 2019 Holiday Catalog!  This one is the gorgeous Nature’s Beauty set and for every set purchased, SU! will give $3 to mental health organizations across the country!

PHEW!  That’s a LOT of cool stuff in just 63 pages, isn’t it?  And…folks – this isn’t even ALL the goodies in the catalog!  I cannot WAIT for you to see it in person and begin the true ooh-ing and aah-ing!!

So – to that end, you’re going to want to be sure that YOU are on my list to receive a 2019 Holiday Catalog!  I’ll be ordering them on Thursday and then mailing them out quick as I can get them!  If you’ve ordered from me in the past year (or you’re a member of my Host Club!) – you’re good to go!  If not – head over to my Online Store and place at least a $50 order (which will also have the added bennie of earning you a $5 Bonus Days coupon code to spend in August!) and assure your spot on my Mailing List!

Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Hey ya’ll – well, it’s Friday again!  Looking forward to a weekend.

Will this be the LAST weekend I look forward to?  Since…by this time next week I’ll be mere hours away from being retired?

A good friend told me that – even though she’s retired – she still works during the week – and uses the weekends for chores and fun.

Will I do that?

I don’t know – it doesn’t seem to be the way to alleviate the “Sunday evening blues”, now does it?  I think I want to get to the point where I have to look at my watch to see what day of the week it is!

I guess we’ll see which way it ends up, won’t we?  In the meantime…HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂

I thought this would be a super good day to bring you some looks at the 2019 Holiday Catalog.  🙂

Now – sorry! – I can’t actually show you pictures of the INSIDE of the catalog.  But I CAN share some pictures of the SAMPLES that are inside the catalog.  So…close! 😉

I thought what I’d do is start with some bundles and suites – there are 25 Bundles (stamp set and dies/punch sets) in this catalog.  Those are wonderful cuz you get a quick 10% savings right off the top!  That means there’s a lot to look at – so….we’ll do about half today and the rest tomorrow!

First up – we’ve got the Toile Tidings Suite – which includes some beautiful DSP and wrapping paper (yes – thinner and 2′ x 3′ in size!).  There are two bundles in this suite: The Toile Christmas Bundle and the Tidings All Around Bundle.

The Tidings All Around Bundle includes the All-Around Wreath Dies – which also coordinates with a Fall-ish stamp set called Seasonal Wreaths.

Next up – we’ve got the So Many Stars Bundle with the So Many Stars Stamp set and Stitched Stars Dies!

I HATE plaid!

Said no one….EVER!

I love plaid and I LOVE the Wrapped in Plaid Suite (and so will you!).  The Designer Series Paper is a handy 6″ x 6″ and has plaid on one side and not-plaid-Christmas-themed designs on the other!  The Perfectly Plaid Bundle includes the stamp set by the same name and the most wunnermus new Pine Tree Punch!

There’s another bundle in that suite called…Peaceful Boughs.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  You KNOW how I feel about pine trees/boughs/cones!  The Peaceful Boughs stamp set works perfectly with the bundled Beautiful Boughs Dies!


If you liked the Curvy Keepsake Framelits from the past – hang on to your socks!  The Let It Snow Suite includes the Snowman Season Bundle…

…and the Tiny Keepsakes Bundle – with a stamp set and the Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies (unlike the previous set – you’ll only have to cut a single piece to create the box – not two!).

The Night Before Christmas Suite includes the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set and bundled Jolly Season Dies.  And this suite has the super-cool Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack and coordinating Cards & Envelopes (see them in that second picture?)!

One Moose.  Two Mooses….moosies?  Regardless…check out the Merry Moose Bundle with a MERRY MOOSE PUNCH!!!

Here’s the Shine Bright Bundle – with beautiful stars and the Stitched Brightly Dies!

If you’re a fan of non-traditional Christmas colors – think blues and coppers – you’re going to be head-over for the Brightly Gleaming Suite!  With its Christmas Gleaming and bundled Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack (yep – TWO punches in the pack) – you’ll be all set!

Now.  Here’s a new bundle that has a really innovative stamp design – that I can’t wait to get my hands on!  The Cup of Christmas stamp set is a photopolymer set with TWO-SIDED stamps!  Stamp one side…

…clean it off and turn it over (as in upside down!) on your block…

…and ink/stamp the reverse image!

Then cut the images with the matching Cup of Cheer Dies!  Cool beans!

The Feels Like Frost Suite is next up and it is smack-your-lips gorgeous!  The Frosted Foliage stamp set and bundled Frosted Frames Dies will coordinate amazeballsingly with the Feels Like Frost 6″ x 6″ Specialty DSP – the card front on this first sample is just one of the beautiful designs in the pack!

Okay – I think that’s a good stopping place for now!  We’ll hit the rest of the bundles/suites and a few odds-and-ends tomorrow!

In the meantime – be sure YOU are on my list to receive a 2019 Holiday Catalog!  I’ll be ordering them next week and then mailing them out quick a I can get them!  If you’ve ordered from me in the past year (or you’re a member of my Host Club!) – you’re good to go!  If not – head over to my Online Store and place at least a $50 order (which will also have the added bennie of earning you a $5 Bonus Days coupon code to spend in August!) and assure your spot on my Mailing List!

Hope you liked the little look-see….hold tight for the rest tomorrow! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix


Finn likes to hang with his dad in the shop on nice cool-ish summer days like we’ve had.

Chillaxin….

…or is he guarding??

What is that???  Do you see it??

Wayne and I never saw a thing.

That’s how “they” get you, you know.

Thank goodness he was there to warn the boogers away!

Stampin’ Up! Here’s a Card With Apples (a sneak peek!)

Good Monday, y’all!  Hope you had a most wonderful weekend and are ready to Soldier thru the work-week! 🙂  Did you do anything fun to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon-landing?  Like….write something while hanging upside down?  Have a big ole glass of Tang?  Eat some freeze-dried ice cream? 🙂

Yeah – I didn’t do any of those things either.  I just thought back to where I was 50 years ago – and thought “Man.  That was COOL!”  Cuz…it totally was!

And – brave beyond measure.  Even though it is NOT – it SEEMS commonplace to us now, but…can you even imagine?  We had no CLUE what they’d find up there.  Or whether they’d come home (like…. to the point that a speech was waiting for the President just in case they didn’t).  But…they walked out there, strapped on a Saturn V and said….GO!

Wow.  Just….wow.  Body parts made of titanium wrapped in diamond!

On a much MUCH more mundane level, let’s look at a card, shall we?  This one uses a fun sentiment set from the Annual catalog called Here’s A Card.  And – I used the new Apple Punch and Come To Gather DSP (from the 2019 Holiday Catalog), too.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder, then matted it on Pear Pizzazz for the card front.

Next up, I cut two Rectangle Stitched Dies from the wood-design of the new Come To Gather DSP (coming on 4 Sept!) and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

Using the new Apple Punch, I cut three apples from checked paper in the Come To Gather DSP.  I also used the punch to make three Early Espresso stems and three Pear Pizzazz leaves.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere the stems and leaves to each apple.

I pulled out the Support Ribbon dies and cut a few little hearts from Cajun Craze.  I adhered them to the two apples with Liquid Glue.  Then I stuck all the apples onto the card front with more Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from Here’s A Card in Cajun Craze on a piece of Whisper White and cut it with the small Rectangle Stitched Die.  Then I popped it onto the middle apple with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish is off, I tied three small bows from Cajun Craze Linen Thread (yup – you read that right!) from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack (coming 4 Sept) and adhered them with little dabs of Liquid Glue.

On the inside, I added a second sentiment from Here’s A Card in Cajun Craze to a Whisper White panel.  In the corner I added another apple – letting the edges hang over and then trimming the excess with my Paper Snips.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Cajun Craze card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another apple on the front…

…and more of the checkered Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Oh my goodness – I love the new Apple Punch (it ALSO makes pumpkins!!) – and the Come To Gather DSP.  You’ll be able to grab both of those – plus the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo – on 4 Sept.  Unless…you join us now or on 1 Aug.  THEN you could get them even faster!  I hope you like!

Check out the Extra Extra Joining Special and…let’s chat! 🙂

Do YOU Like to Pay Taxes on Your Goodies?!?

Me, neither!

If you love holidays—and don’t love taxes—we have some great news for you! Twelve U.S. states will have sales tax holidays for school supplies over the next several weeks. The dates for each state’s sales tax holiday will vary; the definition of “school supplies” will also vary from state to state. Fortunately, a selection of Stampin’ Up! products qualify as school supplies and will be tax-free during each state’s sales tax holiday period. (Sales tax holidays may not apply to additional county, city, and special jurisdiction taxes.)

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia or Wisconsin (whoo-hoo!) —click the picture below to see which products will be tax-free for each state !  HINT:  TENNESSEE is next up – your weekend is 26 – 28 July!

Important Note: Orders must be placed with Stampin’ Up! during the sales tax holiday period to receive these select items tax free; each period begins—and ends—at midnight (Mountain Time).

Finn and Cerah having a little discussion.

He’s apparently said something that she didn’t care for and she’s stuck her tongue out at him.

We will never know….
