Hey y’all! Welcome to Monday – and the work week.
What a downer-way to start a blog post, huh? Sorry! 🙁
Let me give you a more-fun bit of news! Stampin’ Up! let us know there’s been a big refresh in the Clearance Rack – so be sure to check it out. AND – Fast Fuse is AVAILABLE while supplies last at a huge DISCOUNT!! Don’t wait if you need Fast Fuse – check it out below and get it while it lasts!
So – if you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video – thanks. I hope you had a good time – it was sort of fun designing on the fly as a group, wasn’t it? If you didn’t get to watch, but would like to see the fun after-the-fact, here’s the Memorex on YouTube!
The sneak peek I gave you yesterday was a Baker’s Box that I’d colored using Stampin’ Spritzers and Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Refills. The video shows how I did that!
For the sample box, I used the cool Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF and the new Country Home bundle to decorate it after I was thru coloring it. Take a look-see:
On last night’s video, we decorated our colored box using elements from the Cauldron Bubble Bundle!
The video explains the coloring process – so take a quick gander at that!
Decorating the sides of the boxes was the same for each design. In both cases, I matted either an embossed card stock panel or a piece of the Toil & Trouble DSP on a color coordinating mat and then adhered them to the sides with Liquid Glue. On the front panel, I punched a half-circle with my 3/4″ Circle Punch.
From there, it was a matter of “frosting the cake”! Each box started with some Chicken Wire Elements, snipped down and adhered with Liquid Glue.
I cut several images from the Toil & Trouble DSP using their dies in the Cauldron Framelits to decorate the Halloween Box – as well as two spider webs from Black Foil. I also punched a Black Foil bat with the Spooky Bats punch!
The sides of the Fall box are Crumb Cake card stock, embossed in the Tin Tile Dynamic TIEF, then lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink. The sentiment banner is an image from the Country Home stamp set, stamped on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso. I colored the cotton balls with my White Watercolor Pencil and snipped a banner end.
I stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze on a thinner strip of Crumb Cake and bannerized it, too. Then I adhered it to the larger banner with a little Liquid Glue and slid a Galvanized Clip on the left end.
I wrapped some 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the box and tied a knot on the top. Then I added a Linen Thread Billie-bow and a second “regular” bow with the Braided Trim. Then I slid the sentiment banner under the bow and secured it in place with a Glue Dot under the Galvanzied Clip.
And that was it, folks! These new Baker’s Boxes are perfectly sized for a deluxe donut or a few gourmet cookies. Or…candy! Or…whatever! And you can just decorate them to your heart’s content! Fall – with the Country Home Bundle – would be perfect! And Halloween is almost here! Cauldron Bubble and a little Toil & Trouble make super fun treat boxes! Hope you like!

CLEARANCE RACK REFRESH
New items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the online store. Supplies are limited, and with discounts up to 60%, products will go quickly. Shop now and stock up.
FAST FUSE ADDED TO CLEARANCE RACK (WHILE SUPPLIES LAST)
If you’re like us, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . . because we had already retired the product and everything!) However, our vendor reached out to us because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us. We took them up on their offer and purchased 2,500 Fast Fuse applicators and 72,000 Fast Fuse refills.
One of the reasons SU! decided to buy this product was because of feedback they received letting them know that some of you still wanted to purchase Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and this was the perfect opportunity to make it available once again through the Clearance Rack. Fast Fuse refills will be available to you for more than 50% off their original price! Because supplies are limited, you should go right to the online store to place your order instead of waiting to place a workshop order. These’ll go fast, y’all!
See what I did there? You’re welcome.
Get them right now while they last! Order direct thru my Online Store with these links! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix
On Sunday, I was walking from the bedroom back to the kitchen.
And I noticed Finn.
Finn sleeping is not unusual.
These are just things that make you scratch your head and think…wait…what?!?
