Hello and happy Monday my dumplings. If you’re like me the Monday after the time switch wasn’t easy, but it gets better I promise. I’m happy that I’m still in a crafting, handmade card making state of mind. Billy Joel might be in a New York state of mind, but I’m in a Tutti-Frutti, Basket Weave, Layering Circles, Old Olive, Crumb Cake state of mind. See how I snuck in what I used as I listen to Mr. Joel. The card has a 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” base of Old Olive. I added a layer of 5” x 3 3/4” Crumb Cake that I embossed with the Basket Weave embossing folder. It was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals I adhered a 4 3/4” x 3 1/2” piece of Tutti-Frutti dsp to my Crumb Cake layer. I chose a sentiment from the Bubble Over stamp set that I stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Real Red ink. Using three of the dies from the Layering Circles Framelits dies and my Big Shot I cut out the sentiment and a circle in Real Red and Old Olive. I adhered the Whisper White circle to the Real Red and the Real Red to the Old Olive using mini glue dots. I adhered the Old Olive circle to the front of the card using a Stampin’ Dimensional. Let me know what you think in the comments section below because I’m more than a little pleased with the final product.
Now it’s time for business talk.
Sale-a-Bration is winding down which means your opportunity to get any of the awesome exclusive Sale-a-Bration items is also winding down. If you follow my blog you have already read about placing a qualifying order of $50.00 or more to get these items. When Sale-a-Bration ends the Panda Parade for example is gone bye bye forever. A few items may carry over but they won’t be FREE with a qualifying order. You know the drill you can check out the Sale-a-Bration brochures, yep there are two, thru my Online Store. You can also access the Annual and Occasions catalogs there as well. Place a qualifying order of items from one or both of those catalogs and pick out your free Sale-a-Bration item, easy peasy lemon squeeze. Use the link below to my Online Store, don’t miss out.
I’ve told you why I joined Stampin’ Up. Just in case you forgot it was, like over 90% of all demonstrators, to save money on great, high quality products. I fell in love with their paper, the cardstock, the Designer Series Paper they all just blew me away. I loved the feel of it, so sturdy not flimsy like the paper at places I won’t name. There’s nothing wrong with those places and in a pinch when I can’t wait (I’m too cheap to use next day) I’ll pick up glue there, but not cardstock. But I digress, this is a great time to join during Sale-a-Bration you get two extra stamp sets that you get to pick and there’s no cap on how much they can cost. When you join you already get $125.00 worth of awesome Stampin’ Up products that you choose, no pre-selected by the company kit, for $99.00. You get 20% discount on all future offers. You get to see and order all new products first. You get to work towards great incentives. While all that was great, what has kept me with Stampin’ Up has been the many friendships that I’ve made. So whether you want to join and be one of the Top 100 in the World or you just want to sell to a few friends that you enjoy crafting with I promise you won’t regret joining. However if you find it’s not for you, then you can simply say that and use all your goodies to make beautiful items for your family and friends. Take a chance sign-up, plan to hang out with us in November at our 30th Anniversary OnStage Live Event in Orlando and I’ll bet you’ll be Stampin’ Up forever. Use the link below to join my team.
Finally, if you follow my blog you saw the update on the Fifth Anniversary Paper Pumpkin kit. So many people heeded the call and subscribed that it’s sold out. There will be no possibility of getting this kit not even a refill. The warehouse area where the March kits were is like Mother Hubbard’s cupboard, it’s bare, empty. There’s nothing there, nada. However don’t despair, go ahead and subscribe and use the promo code SAVEFIFTY0418 and if you’re a new subscriber you’ll get 50% off not just the April ( get it 04/18) kit but the May kit too. So for basically it’s, depending on your POV, either two for the price of one or buy one get one free. Either way you need to subscribe and you have to be a NEW subscriber.
Now you have links below for my Online Store, Paper Pumpkin and to join my team. Use one, or two, heck use all three. See you Wednesday
