Love You More Than

Happy Monday!

Have you noticed the Nothing's Better Than Bundle in the Annual Catalgoue?  I did, but haven't played with it until now!  I know - I can't believe it.

It is the perfect set to cheer up some friends from afar!  My besties and I try to have a weekend away two times a year where we scrapbook and recharge our momma batteries.  We have missed two now due to COVID, but when I saw this set, I immediately thought of them! 💖 Purchasing this bundle will get you a FREE item during Sale-a-bration (just sayin').  

The folks over at Global Design Project, has an awesome sketch to play along with this week, so thought I would join the fun.  



The possibilities are endless with this bundle.  Here I made a card for a baker.  I used the In Good Taste DSP - this one looks like a kitchen backsplash tile. 



I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to create the cookie baking pan and the retired Apron Builder Dies for the spatula.  Love how it turned out.  

Be sure to stop by the Global Design Project Blog to see of the creations used with the sketch this week.  

Happy Stampin'

January 2021 Creative Stampers Tutorial Blog Hop


January 2021 Creative Stampers Tutorial Blog Hop 

Hey there!  It is time for another Creative Stampers Tutorial Blog Hop!  This tutorial features project created by 11 amazing Stampin'UP! demonstrators from around the world featuring free products that can be earned during Sale-a-Bration!


Each tutorial includes full colour photos, measurements and a product list.

Today, each of us will be sharing a second project using the same products we used to create the project in the tutorial.

You can see a sneak peek of all 11 projects in the picture above.  Here is a sneak peek of project included in the tutorial!  


I can't share the tutorial project, but I can share a second project featuring the Corner Bouquet stampset.


In my second project, I used the Flower and Field Designer Series Paper (which can be earned by spending $60).  I love this pattern and the colours are vibrant, bight and cheery. 


The main feature of my card is the Corner Bouquet stampset.  It can be used in many ways, today I decided to colour the stamp using Stampin' Write Markers.  Some tips I have when colouring your stamp:

  • first colour with the colour used on the largest part of the stamp
  • colour using the lightest colour last
  • 'hough' on the stamp before stamping to help moisten the stamp
  • stamp the first time on a scrap of paper, don't clean your stamp,  then colour it again and stamp on your card, it is much brighter and the image is full
The colours I used are Granny Apple Green, Poppy Parade and Bumblebee.

So how do you get your hands on the free tutorial bundle?

There are several ways to earn the Tutorial Bundle:

1. place any size order from my online store or though me between January 1 - 31, 2021 and get the PDF for FREE

2. Purchase January 2021's tutorial for only $22.  You can email me here.

3. Join my Team!  They will always get the tutorials for free!  Find out more about joining during Sale-a-bration here.


Be sure to check out the designers second projects by hopping through their blogs below.

Thank you International Blog Highlight

 Hello stampers,

Thank you for stopping by today.  I am sharing a card I have made using some free items I have earned and that you can earn too!  Starting January 5th, for every $60 you spend you can earn a free item.  Free is good, right!

I am participating in Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight challenge with this card!  The theme is 'thank you'.  So I have created a thank you card to join the fun.  We can all use more Thank you cards in our stash - there are so many people we can be thanking during the pandemic and a handmade card is a beautiful way to do it.  

Here is my card!   Can you spot the free items?


If you guessed the Designer Series Paper and the stampset, you guessed right!  LOL

I love this paper and I have been using it a ton!  It is called Flower and Field Designer Series Paper and it has many pretty colours in the patterns.  This helps create many colour combinations using this as your starting point. 

The stampset is called Corner Bouquet.  There are so many ways to use this stampset, today I have coloured it using my Stampin' Write Markers.

If you like my card, I would love to have your vote!  Please stop by Kylie's blog and place your vote.  You can do that by clicking the button below.  ;)  thank you!



Happy Stampin'

Sale A Brate Good Times - Come on!


Hello there,

Happy new year!  Well 2020 is finally over and 2021 is here and let's make it a good one!

With the start of a new month comes a Blog Hop with my Blogging Friends.  I just love to hop on through and see all of the creations this group has to share.  This month there are so many wonderful new things happening in the Stampin'UP! world and the most exciting is Sale-a-bration.  That is the best sale of the year where you earn free stuff!  

So on this hop we are featuring products you can earn for FREE!  Today I am going to share with you two cards I created using the Darling Donkeys stampset.


My first card depicts how we all feel about 2020!  One of these cute little donkeys is kicking up his heels and I positioned him to kick 2020.  I saw versions of this one line and had to put my spin on it.

I used my Stampin' Blends in Basic Grey and Crumb Cake and Petal Pink for his ears.  Then I fussy cut him out and popped him up using dimensionals.  The numbers are from the Playful Alphabet dies.  The Scalloped Stitched Rectangle and the confetti stamp are from the So Sentimental Bundle


I couldn't resist using the Word Wishes Dies to wish my card recipient a happy new year!



For my next card, I wanted to feature another of the Darling Donkeys as well as one of the many Designer Series Papers you can earn for FREE!

This cute little guy I coloured in using the same Stampin' Blends colours, just in reverse and the flower is in Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.


I wanted to use some Flirty Flamingo ribbon, but didn't have any - Stampin' Blends to the rescue!  I simply coloured my ribbon with my Dark Flirty Flamingo.

Be sure to hop on through all of my friends blogs to see all of the project made with FREE products you can earn.

Happy Stampin'

Exciting New Things Brewing!

SALE A BRATION STARTER KIT- FIVE FREE DESIGNER SERIES PAPER PACKS!!


Hello everyone!
Tuesday, January 5th, is a BIG day for all of us who Love Stampin' Up! The 2021 Spring Catalog goes LIVE and the Sale A Bration begins!! Hopefully, you've received a catalog in the mail. If you'd like one, just let me know and I'll get one out to you! You will also be able to see the PDF beginning Tuesday. 


You can print out a Wish List here to help you get organized and prepared to place your first order. Remember, for every $60 you spend, you will earn a FREE Sale A Bration product! 
I must tell you about the very best deal during Sale A Bration- The Starter Kit!!



During Sale A Bration 2021, you get quite a bit for the $135 price tag

1. Choose $165 in product from the Annual or Spring catalog
2. Five FREE Designer Series paper packs from the upcoming Annual Catalog (see photo above.) This is a $78.75 value and ONLY available when you purchase a Starter Kit. 
3. Free Shipping!! 

The five free paper packs are all the color family DSP packs. They are amazing! If you have been a follower of my blog, you know I love this paper packs and use them a ton! You get four sheets of DSP for each Stampin' Up color. These are packs coming out in the next Annual Catalog, so they are brand new! Again, the only way to get them is to purchase a Starter Kit between January 5th and February 28, 2021. 


Did you know that when you purchase the Starter Kit, you actually earn a 20% discount off EVERY purchase for the next 3 months? In fact, it's actually longer than three months. If you purchase the Starter Kit in January, you actually have until the end of June to take full advantage of that discount on all Stampin' Up products! 

What’s In A Starter Kit?
Anything you want! Yes, REALLY! For just $135 (FREE SHIPPING too!!) you choose up to $165 of ANYTHING in the Spring Catalog, Annual Catalog or even off the Clearance Rack! Plus, as I mentioned above, you get five free paper packs. 

What’s the Catch?
There is NO catch! I know, sometimes, we think there is something hidden that we don't find out until after we purchase the kit. But here, truly there is no catch! The only requirement to remain an active Demo is a quarterly minimum. And as a new Demo, you actually have until the following quarter to meet it (June 30!) And what if you don't meet it? You just become a customer again and lose the discount. That's it! But, I have a feeling you will love the benefits so much that you will never want to let that happen! 

Do I have to have a blog, make videos or hold classes?
Nope. Again, this is what you want it to be. If you want to purchase the Starter Kit just to enjoy the discount- great! You are what I like to think of as a “preferred customer.” You get all the benefits but don’t have to actually run a business. But, if you want to run a business, you can! And I’m here to help guide you with that if you want. 

What Are the Benefits?
The biggest benefit, in my opinion, is that you become a Stampers Inkspired Team Member! That's the name of my team and we are growing!  I welcome ALL new demos to my team regardless of why they purchase the Starter Kit. 

Official List of Benefits:

  • 20% discount 
  • Potential to earn up to 40% of your sales
  • Early and exclusive access to new products
  • Opportunity to earn free product through various incentives
  • Qualify for cash bonuses, free product, incentive trips and more

If you choose to purchase your kit through me, there are even more added benefits. 

 You will be a part of my Stampers Inkspired Community and will be invited to join in the fun we have together.  Continual support from me. Also:

  • Free Class Planners- my downline get my Class Planners and Tutorial PDFs for free every single month! You can use them for your own crafting or as a class of your own! 
  • Team recognition and incentives - PRIZES! Lot's of them! 
  • Team Facebook Page! 
  • Discounted Class To Go Kits -  I want them to purchase the products (stamp sets, ribbon, whatever the product is included in my kits) on their own demo number so they get their discount and their minimums! 

So, if you are ready to order those Stampin'UP! products at a discount AND get all the amazing benefits I listed above, you can purchase the Starter Kit below beginning on Friday January 5, 2021. Or, you can email me if you have questions! I am happy to answer anything you might want to know! 

Purchase your Starter Kit Here 

Happy Stampin'

It's Beginning To Look Like Christmas!

 It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Do you sing the Christmas carol when you read that?  I do.  That is the theme this week over at The Paper Players and I just had to play along.

I realized I hadn't shared my cards that I made for my Coming Home Card Class To-Go and this one is perfect for this challenge.


The Coming Home Bundle is a really great one to have in your stash.  When I first saw it, I thought meh.  I just wasn't sure.  but I have to tell you it is my most used bundle of the Christmas season.

for this card, I used only the dies and I love how it turned out.

I used the Designer Series Paper to help me decide on the colours to use.  Old Olive, Pool Party, Early Espresso, Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz.

Be sure to stop over at The Paper Players to see all of the Christmas creations.
