Good morning and happy Tuesday! You know that we’re only a week and change from the go-live date for the new Sep – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog, right?! Are you so excited? Can you just not hide it?
You totally sang those last two sentences, didn’t you!? 😂😂
It’s good to be getting back into the swing of things and I’ve got a pretty card – with a sneak peek from the new catalog for you today! It’s perfect for winter and features the pretty Magical Meadow stamp set and bundled dies – plus some gorgeous Winter Meadow DSP! Take a look-see:

Well – happy Monday. Again. Are the weekends going by faster and faster for you, too? I thought for sure that would stop when I retired, but…nope! They still just fly by! 🤷♀️
My card today is so quick and so easy – I literally (no – really!) made 4 of them – WITH a reel – in just about an hour! So – if you need some pretty thank you cards quick like a bunny, check it out!
I used the Earthen Textures stamp set – didn’t even need the bundled dies for this one! – and added some texture with the Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder. Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop! Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is “For The Men/Boys”! We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!
When I first saw the Let’s Go Fishing Suite – I put it on my get-it-first list. We ALWAYS need goodies for those hard-to-make masculine cards – and this is the perfect set! Even for non-fisher-people! I used the Gone Fishing bundle plus several different designs in the Let’s Go Fishing DSP for today’s card. Take a look-see:

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! We’ve got a talented line-up and…I think you’re going to like what you see! This is a once-a-month hop and…all our cards will be fun folds!! How cool is that?!?
Now. Fair warning. I did the exact same fold the other day.
Sorry. Not sorry. I mean – it IS one of my fave folds – but…I sorta hate repeating myself this fast. So…🤷♀️🤷♀️
This is a book-fold made into an easel – and decorated with the fun Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ DSP and the Beautiful Balloons stamp set and bundled dies! Take a look-see:

Good morning, y’all! Hope your week has started out well. I don’t know about you, but…Tuesdays that are Mondays always keep me confused all thru the rest of the week. I barely know if it’s Christmas or…well…TUESDAY!
I hope it is NOT Christmas. Just sayin! 😉
My card today would be perfect for the NEXT upcoming holiday – Valentine’s Day! It gets its color palette from some Country Floral Lane and Country Gingham DSPs and features the so-cute Love Cats stamp set! Oh. And it’s super easy! Take a look-see:

After the pretty-but-involved fun fold of yesterday – I felt like we needed a cardstock-palate-cleanser – so…I swung the pendulum ALL the way back with a really clean-and-simple Christmas card! It uses the Cottage Wreaths set – and is decorated with some glittery Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder flowers. Take a look-see!

At our retreat last weekend, my friend Karen Ksenzakovic gave us all adorable little sticky notepad holders – that are ALSO easel folds! I loved it so much that I asked for her permission to make my own to share with you – and she said yes! Thanks, Karen K!
Mine features the available-soon Framed & Festive stamp set, plus the Fitting Florets DSP. I actually made three different versions using the entire new suite – including the Framed Florets Bundle! Here’s the first one I made – it’s perfect for Christmas!

Good morning on Monday! It’s back to reality (ie: cooking my own meals!!) after a most wonderful weekend. I wish we could do these retreats once a MONTH instead of once a YEAR!! Such a good time with friends – fun crafting – and amazing food!! 🙂

Happy Happy Hawwwpm Day, y’all!
Uhm…did you see my SECOND post yesterday?? About the 24-hour Flash Sale on EVERY stamp set in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog (except Host sets) on 15 Sept?!? That’s TOMORROW. So… I’m reminding you TODAY about a post from YESTERDAY regarding a sale that is TOMORROW! ALL timelines covered! You can read all the deets down below! 😉
My card today is back to Christmas – I’ve opened the floodgates and it’s going to be hard to un-ring this Christmas-card bell. Sorry! 😉 This one uses the pretty Decorated with Happiness stamp set with its bundled Decorated Pine dies – which has one of my fave pine boughs of all time in it! I added a smidge of gold-embossed Lights Aglow Specialty DSP and…some Timber embossing! Take a look-see:
Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well!
So – before we hit it – I want to give you a quick update on a really popular Sale-a-Bration freebie: the Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes. Bad news – they’re sold out – and I suspect they won’t be back. So that milk is spilled – that horse is out of the barn. The moral here is that…if there’s something you LOVE (Rings of Love DSP – hint hint) – then you need to be taking steps to be able to order those NOW!!
Now – let’s talk card! This one uses the so so pretty Apple Harvest stamp set from the Jul – Dec 2022 Mini Catalog! And I’ve dug out the Triple Time Technique and…Clear Wink of Stella “watercoloring”, too! Take a look see:
