New Year, New Products, New Events and More!

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is 2018? Time flies by so fast. It just makes me even more appreciative of my time and how I spend it. Simply put, crafting is important in my life. It is rewarding in so many ways and I get to spend quality time with family and friends.

New Products – the Occasions Catalog

I have been off the grid, so to speak, over the holidays and for the first part of this month. Now, I am getting back into the swing of things with the new Spring Occasions catalog. It is chock full of awesomeness and is perfect for all of our most common needs this time of year. Check out the Occasions Catalog PDF by following the link below.

In addition, every new year starts out with a bang with Stampin’ Up’s biggest and best sale of the year. for every $50 you spend from any catalog, you can pick a FREE gift from the Sale-a-bration brochure. No limit! This year, Stampin’ up has added a level 2 incentive with great FREE products for every $100 order. I will post more details about this in the near future, but for now, take a peek at the Sale-a-bration brochure PDF by following the link below.

Playing with Stampin’ Up Blends

Hello crafters!

Finally I get to play with my new Stampin’ Up Blends. These awesome alcohol markers actually came out in October, but I simply have not had the time to work with them. So, today, after all my company left, I was still in creative mode and made these cards. What do you think? This was so much fun and so very relaxing. If you love to color, you are going to want to get your hands on these. I still need to practice my technique…darn!! Oh, well (sigh), sacrifices must be made. Practice makes perfect!! 🙂

How to Make a Sponged Watermelon Card

Hello Stampers!

I am so excited about the upcoming Holiday catalog and am wishing for cooler weather. However, there is still a lot of Summer left so let’s cool off with a fun Watermelon card.

I absolutely love the technique of sponging. It is so much fun and I find it very therapeutic. At my last Facebook Online Crafting Party, I made this live video tutorial. It is in two parts. I hope you enjoy!

If you would like to print the card recipe (instructions), select the link below.

Here is the PRODUCT LIST for this card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you were inspired. If so, sign up to receive my posts by email.

Happy stamping,
