Brightly Lit Christmas Lamp Post


my special - through Oct 21 - is this - Shop via my website.  When your order comes to $85 (pre shipping and tax) and you enter the hostess code KZY4CQF9 when prompted - when done email me with an ADDITIONAL $20 in merchandise - MY TREAT!
How does $20 in free sound??!!!  Orders must be to me by midnight EST on the 21st
This card may seem like it has a lot of working parts - but in reality it goes together pretty easily.  It would be an easy one to mass produce - as you could focus on doing one of the steps at a time.  I have used the bundle - omitting several pieces from both the dies and the stamps - so countless looks are possible!




The Designer Series Paper used is a sheet from one of my favorites this Holiday Catalog - Christmas Around the World.  The images on this sheet bring memories of the UK - but for us Indy folks - there is a definite nod to the tree we visit every Christmas Eve as a family - our tree of lights on the Circle.

You may have missed this charming ribbon as it's on a page in the catalog with so very much going on - go back and take a look at the Quilted Christmas Suite and the ribbon that is part of it.

I did use the multipurpose adhesive sheets for the front lamp.  The design is so intricate that I found trying to stick any other adhesive to it could cause it to tear.

2 Vintage Leaves cards in under 5 minutes - with plaid, mixed papers and jute

Today's project is one we will be making at Mini Camp next week.  It started out as one project (the single leaf card with the green check).  But the 'scrap' leaves that were left were so pretty lying on the table werejust too pretty, that I decided why not just use them and whip up a whole second card with them!  So - if you are coming to October Mini camp - it will have a bonus camp this month and be 4 projects for the price of 3, lol.

I love the flannel and plaid prints in so many of the DSP papers this year.  Mixed with the wood print and wood folder and the metals - such a simple card ends up striking.  I added a Thanksgiving type saying - but the great thing about the leaf cards - they may great Birthday, Thinking of You, Thanks or add a knot instead of a bow and they can even be used as a Sympathy.


So often you may be like me and like to add a layer of color behind your front piece for some added contrast - on the video you will see that is where I get one of my leaves.  If you know you are using a full panel for just a covered layer and your Big Shot is handy - just go ahead and roll a shape out of it.  Keep them in a small box near where you stamp - great paper and money saver!!

Eastern Palace Suite Tutorial Video

One of the things I love about Stampin' Up! is how the offer so many products that take the thinking out of the process for you.  Sometimes your mind is tired and you just want to sit down and create and not have to waste what little free time you have coming up with an idea that will turn out beautiful.  That is when the product suites come in to a fabulous rescue!


It's not just stamps and dies - but stamps - dies AND paper.....
and then always some fun things thrown in for some extra pizzaz.  In this suite I use here it's some Gold Foil stickers and some super on trend tassels.



You sit down with inks and some neutral papers and you know it all will work.  
Here is a little notecard I whipped up.  (Last spring - as this was one of the "lost videos" I found on my phone!)


I also have some other cards that I made at a class I attended given by one of my demonstrator friends.  They are super cute too!







Hope you have enjoyed this break from the Holiday catalog and all things fall and Christmas!

Don't forget about my current special:

Cookie Cutter Christmas Flashback Treat Bag

It's late Saturday - and it was a full, busy, beautiful day.  I have some lovely fall cards ready that are filmed and photographed.  I plopped on the couch at the end of the day to get the post ready for tomorrow and got the dreaded phone full message on my iphone.  I have a giant iphone.  I started seeing what I could delete and stumbled on a couple of videos that I have filmed and never edited and downloaded.

So - change of plans.  Free the phone space and much easier to post on a late night!


I made this treat bag last year.  The designer series paper is no longer available - but everything else that I used on the project is.  So cute and so easy to quickly put together.

Last Days to Pre-order the Blends - Don't forget about the FREE Blend Storage Unit!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my preview projects with the new alcohol based BLENDS markers from Stampin' Up!  They are so much fun!

We have not gotten a date yet for when they will be available for customer order - it should be in the next ......months...... No kind of timetable has been given.  If you are demonstrator - make sure you have ordered yours by this weekend.

If you are not a demonstrator and want the BLENDS - you can join my team and get the ENTIRE set of the BLENDS as part of your STARTER KIT.  That will save you $25 AND include from shipping (so another savings of about $13).


I have a Fabulous Wooden Storage Unit for the Blends. Would you like one for FREE?  Here is how you can get one for yourself:

1) Sign up to become a demonstrator on my team!  You will need to sign up between now and Oct 15th to get the Blends in your starter kit.   Once you have your kit,  I will help you get on your way to starting a fun part time business.  If you hit your first $2000 in sales by the end of January 2018 - then I will have your wooden Blend holder sent to you!

2) Blends Loyalty Program  Purchase the Blends - or anything you want - and once your orders hit $1000 by the end of January 2018 - then I will have your wooden Blend holder sent to you!  Good news for you.....the orders can be part of a workshop that you a hostess for - so in home, online, virtual - or even just collect orders from friends - or have your husband or family submit orders for you for Christmas gifts.  As long as your name is the Customer name on the order, they will tally for your total. (class and camp orders are excluded)

If you are local to the Indianapolis area I will be having classes for both members of my demonstrator team and my customers in learning all the tips and tricks for getting the most out of your blends and learning to color like a pro!

If you are not close enough to attend a live session - I will do some online training that will be through a private website - for demonstrators and customers who purchase through me.  This will be ready to go once we have a customer purchase date announced!

Here is the order number you will need to order all of the 26 markers PLUS the color lifter.  You can not go over the $125 starter kit - so add another item from the catalog that is $3.50 or under.

I will get an email letting me know that you are now part of my demonstrator team.  We have some great stamping get togethers - at least one at the start of every new stamping catalog.  We have a fun Facebook page.  We have art contests where you have the chance to win a $50 shopping spree on me!  And I will help you build your business (whether a small hobby business or to earn an income) so you can get your first $2000 in sales by the end of Jan 2018 and be rewarded with your BLENDS holder as seen above!
