Mornin’, y’all! I hope you had a great World Card Making Day WEEKEND! I know we did!
On Saturday, we spent much of the day on Facebook – with demonstrations and giveaways and a rockin’ good time! Speaking of giveaways – Amy has sent an e-mail to all the folks who won one of our prizes, so…if that is YOU…CONGRATS! And – be sure to let Amy know your mailing address so we can get them sent to you, okay?
I did two videos on Saturday. The evening video featured the new Christmastime is Here Suite (coming on 1 Nov) – and you can see that video and all the card cuts right here!
In the other video, I shared the awesome Christmas Countdown Project Kit! I figured I’d give you a little more of the deets – and post that video here for y’all today!
Good Friday, y’all! The week has gone again and the weekend is upon us!
I’m expecting my 2019 Holiday Shares order to arrive today so I’ll spend the weekend cutting and chopping – all things being equal it all ought to go out on Monday. Unless I messed something up in my order – which I’m not going to say has never happened, cuz it totally has! Fingers crossed, y’all!! 😉
So – one of the cool things – well THREE cool things, really! – in the 2019 Holiday Catalog are some amazing kits! We’ve got the Joy of Giving Tag Kit, the Christmas Countdown Project Kit and the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley!
Yesterday I sat down and spent about an hour with the awesome Joy Of Giving Tag Kit – and at the end, I had thirty (yep – you read that right…THIRTY!) wonderful gift tags! Take a look-see:
Hey, y’all – it’s Tuesday so we’re 2/5th of the way thru the work week.
I mean – if I tracked things like that.
Which I don’t.
My card today is actually cardS. Cards made using a seriously cool Project Kit from the Annual Catalog called…For the Love of Felt. Check it out!
This is a Project Kit – which means…you need to grab the For the Love of Felt stamp set separately.
Other than that, bring your inks (Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz and Shaded Spruce) and adhesive – Liquid Glue, SNAIL and Dimensionals. The Kit includes the rest of what you need to make 12 really pretty cards – 4 each of 3 designs, each with super cute felt embellishments!
Oh – and it has a seriously sweet box to contain your creations when they’re done!
I pulled my kit out on Monday and put it together. Here’s the cards – and the envelopes are all decorated on the front and the back flap. You know how much I like a decorated envelope!
Now – I’m going to show you a mistake.
Bad demonstrator? Maybe. But…I seriosuly WANT you guys to buy this kit – cuz it’s totes adorbs – and I seriously want you to end up with 12 cards that you LOVE!
So. Here’s my mistake.
See the problem? Know why I messed up?
I didn’t read the directions. And I got in a bit of a hurry. So…on this last design, I stamped the leaves first.
The directions CLEARLY tell you to stamp the sentiment first. If I had done that…the leaves would be where they belong and not on top of the sentiment!
For The Love of Felt would be a really cool gift for someone – an entire set of wonderful note cards and envelopes, ready to send, in a perfectly decorated box
Check out this quick video and then….get it for yourself! 🙂
I hope you like!

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

I wanted to share a great kit in the 2019 Occasions Catalog with you today. We got the Incredible Like You stamp set at OnStage, so the kit was high on the list for my first pre-order! Once I got into it – I discovered the ingredients to make 16 beautiful cards in 4 different designs! Take a look-see:
Happy happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!! About this time next week we’ll be done with the “hard” part of the test and will be in cruise control mode to the end! We’ll be back to “regular” hours and weekends completely off! And – I’ll be only about a week and a half from heading home! Whoo-hooo! 🙂
So – couple of things before we get going. First: it’s time to be thinking about 2018 Holiday Catalog Shares! I’ve got mine open and welcome you to take a look-see and get signed up!

Okay – so. While we were on the cruise, we got a great sneak peek at a few of the products in the new 2018 Holiday Catalog. One of the things they showed us is the Timeless Tidings Project Kit. Every demo in the room oooh’d or ahhh’d when this one came up. Oh my – it is SO beautiful! Take a look-see:
Good morning good morning good morning!!! GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS?!?
No, silly – it’s not HAWWMP Day! It’s OFF TO VACAY Day!!
We’re on our way to Seattle – and looking forward to a few days of sight-seeing and trying to get the idea of moving to that area out of my head!
I fear this plan may backfire…. 😉
Next on the agenda is the cruise. Whoo-hoo! And I’ve heard tell that the folks who give us all the service that cruises are known for do appreciate a hand-stamped little thank you at the end. Stampin’ Up! has kindly paid our required gratuity (yes – being an SU! demonstrator is awesome and earning a trip is one heck of a perk…perhaps you’d like to earn a cool trip of your own?) but we can give a little extra at the end to those folks who we think go above and beyond.
Well – it turns out that SU! has ALSO come up with the perfectly perfect All Inclusive Card Kit – called…Notes of Kindness!
Mornin’, y’all! I’m headed to CA. Next stop? Alaskan Cruise! Whoo-hoo! Just gotta get thru a few weeks of work and then it’s off to see the whales and bald eagles! And…maybe partake of a midnight chocolate buffet!
For today, I wanted to share a really cool card kit in the new catalog. It’s called the Calligraphy Essentials Project Kit!
