Holiday Bag Tags

Yesterday was the Glitter Queens Blog Hop where we each made bags and tags! If you didn’t get a chance to check out all the great projects, click here!

I don’t normally post on Saturday but I promised to share how I made my tags so I have a video for you today! Making your own tags makes your gift even more special. You’ll find the video below and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!  (more…)

Glitter Queens Blog Hop – Tags & Bags

Welcome to the Glitter Queens Blog Hop! I’m so glad you’re here! Our theme this month is Tags & Bags and I know you’ll find lots of inspiration for your holiday gift giving! 

Do you have lots of pretty paper sitting in a drawer not being used? Pull it out and make my bag! Watch my video below and you’ll see how easy it is to create your own handmade bag!  (more…)

Stampin’ Up! First Frost Bundle

Happy Thursday! It’s been raining for two days where I live in California.  We always need rain so it’s very welcome plus it’s nice and cozy inside!

Did you get a chance to look at all the retiring products when I posted the Year-End Closeout PDF yesterday? Or if it’s easier, you can go straight to my online store where you’ll see two categories of products – Retiring Products and Discounted, because yes, some products are also on sale! I went through my Holiday Catalog and marked off everything so if you are wondering about a particular item, just leave a comment or email me. (more…)

Stampin’ Up! Year-End Closeout and More!

I have lots to tell you about today! 

#1  If you signed up to receive my blog updates by email, I’m sure you’ve noticed that you haven’t been receiving them.  I was having problems with my site and it had to be disabled.  We’re working behind the scenes to get it working again but it may take some time.  It’s possible that once it’s up and running, you may need to sign up again.  Thanks for your patience.   (more…)

New Host Code & a New Catalog

I have a new Host code for the month of December! When you use my current host code and your order is $50 or more, you become eligible to earn a prize at the end of the month when I close the code! Each month there are different prizes to choose from! Click here to place an order. 

A brand new catalog, the Occasions Catalog, debuts on January 3, 2019! Sale-A-Bration also begins on that same day (earn free product for every $50 you spend)!! If you’ve placed an order with me in the last 6 months, you will automatically receive both catalogs in the mail.  If you don’t already have a demonstrator and live in the U.S., you can request a complimentary copy of both catalogs by filling out this form. Demonstrators can start ordering the catalogs on the 5th and once I receive mine, I’ll send yours off to you!  (more…)

Wishing You Well

Wishing You Well

The sentiment on yesterday’s card used the stamp set Wishing You Well from the Holiday Catalog and today I’m using not only the sentiment but two more stamps in the set.  This is one of our Distinktive stamp sets. Distinktive stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image for realistic depth and intensity.  You can’t help but be impressed once you’ve used one of these stamps!! (more…)

Frosted Floral Dahlia Fold

I find it very hard to resist making cards using the Dahlia Fold technique when I find a paper as beautiful as our Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper. You may remember this card that I shared back in September using another sheet from this package of paper. If you’d like to create the flower, the video below will walk you through it (or you can click here). It may look difficult but it really isn’t!  You’ll need a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to create 8 circles and a 2″ punch to create a base for the flower. Then you’ll start folding!  (more…)
