Country Lane Suites with the Barn Door - a Combo Made in Farmhouse Heaven!

How many of you have the Barn Door stamps and Sliding Door framelits stashed away from when they were super hot ....I don't know....a while back!  I remember being in Salt Lake when they debut'd - so either a year or two ago.  I can't remember how long they have been out.  Let's go with a year, that will make me feel better!

Bonus:  if you are reading this the day I am posting - head to my Facebook at 4:15 EST (or catch the replay later!) for 2 more fun demonstrations with the stamp set!

The two styles of the Barn Door and the Country Lane Suite are made for each other, yes?  And if you have been afraid that the mechanics of the door are too difficult - I hope the video shows you that - it is INDEED NOT!  So simple to put together!  You will need the FOAM ADHESIVE STRIPS - that is the word I was missing when I was using them - and then I completely forgot again when I made the recipe list below.  Ug, my brain somedays, lol.

If you are on my Facebook group - then you saw today I posted several pictures from when I have been out shopping to give you ideas on how to color in the objects from the Country Home stamps!  It is SO on trend, most every store you go in - you see the elements everywhere!

Check back here tomorrow or in your In box for the weekend special that will go with this stamp set/suite!

AND during my Live I will be announcing the next TWO Artistry Inspired classes I have coming up.  I am going with 2 because they are Autumn/Christmas combos - so they will overlap in October - so in early November we can get full on into Christmas!!

The CHICKEN WIRE special is now over.  Hold off with any orders for the moment - on the live I will be announcing a substitute.  They are currently so far on backorder that they are turned off.  I have enough for those of you who HAVE placed your orders so far this month!

Football Treats - Bakers Boxes for the Touchdown! Fundraisers, Homecoming, Tailgates, College Game day, Super Bowl - or Switch the Sport Up All Together!

Nothing quite says "hey, guys, it's fall!"  Like Football.
Well, maybe Pumpkin Spice Latte - but that's another post, lol.
Today we focus on one of our favorite ways to spend some time together cheering our teams, eating our favorite foods and hosting our friends. 

Here is the mix I filled my boxes with - but in the video I give you other ideas!  If you would like the recipe, I will be sharing it - simply order the Baker's Boxes (link below) from me now through Oct 31, 2018 and I will include it in with the Thank You card from your order.  (If you are a one of my direct demonstrators, let me know and I will send you the recipe if you want to recreate these at a stamp event)
It is also my FIRST October Camp project (yea!! - always excited to have a project - and in this case our snack! - done in the month before camp!).  So at camp you will be getting the recipe.

The star of this project of course are the new Bakers Boxes from Stampin' Up! featured in the Holiday Catalog.  You may have missed them - sometimes the all white products can be hard to see when our eyes are drawn to the pretty and sparkly!

I also pulled in an unexpected stamp set for my saying and then as the set was sitting there realized it included a "Football"

SCORE one for the Stamp Set!

SO - I know you are already thinking.
College Tailgate.  High School Tailgate.
PeeWee Fundraisers 
ANY OTHER SPORT fundraisers (change the 'field' on the box to be a diamond, a court, a pitch, a green, a DANCE FLOOR - get your creative juices flowing!)
Playoff Party, Superbowl (the boxes may not be available then, so stock up if you want them in February!)

Or take them an entirely different direction - I will have some of that for you soon!
For more how to's and what I used - see the video.  I have a super busy week - so I will let my talking do the talking!

Baker's Boxes

One last thing.....the Chicken Wire Elements have proven to be so popular that the stock that is coming in to fill backorders will be nearly gone by the time it gets here.  Since that was my chosen freebie for the month I am going to have to switch soon.  I do have enough to cover those of you who have ordered so far and maybe 1 or 2 more orders.  If you want to get the Chicken Wire before they turn off they ordering for it - you need to either order it TODAY or place a $50 order or greater order with me TODAY!

Who knew we all loved Chicken Wire so much??

How to Use Wishing You Well All Year Long and Ideas For Designing the Cards!

Today's video is the last from my series on the stamp set Wishing You Well - oh, I just LOVE the set!  Here is the link for you to pop over and watch the video!

It is also the last camp project that we made in September.  If you saw any of the pictures of all 6 cards together, you will have noticed that this one is different than the original one I posted.

In the video I explain the process of the how's and the why's I ended up changing the project.  BUT, in the process you can see how wonderfully versatile this set is!  You will find yourself reaching for it ALL year long!

Simply mix up the colors and make it work for whatever season you are in!

And today Stampin' Up! has added some GREAT products and huge discounts to our online stores!  Make sure to take a second to see if there is anything you can snag at bargain prices.  Things are running out quickly, so don't wait!  If you get to $50 I will also add this month's freebie - the Chicken Wire Elements - to your thank you card when I send them in October!  You just have to use the Host Code at Checkout!!
