Fun and Fabulous Friday-Christmas

We had a great time tonight at the Fun and Fabulous Friday night class (this happens the last Friday of every month). We made 4 cards and this one is my favourite. I can't take credit for this design though...I found it on Pinterest!

The stamp set used is Jolly Bingo Bits. I used the Be Of Good Cheer designer paper, 1" circle punch, and the new 1 1/4" scallop circle punch from the Holiday catalogue. I also used the Gumball Green stitched satin ribbon.
I LOVE the stitched satin ribbon, available in all the new In Colours...and for the month of September, you can get a spool FREE with every 50.00 you spend on your Stampin'Up supplies! Remember, you can shop from my online store 24/7 and have the order shipped directly to you! Just click on the Shop SU! online button at the end of this post.
Enjoy your long weekend!

Treat Bag and NEW Loyalty Card!

So, taking a break from Christmas and creating Halloween things. I have TONS of ideas for the upcoming Halloween Haunts class on September 15-it will be so much FUN! To RSVP for this class, send me an email at
Did you know the glassine bags from the Ghoulish Googlies kit are EMBOSSABLE? Well, they are! I embossed this one with the Chevron folder. (I didn't have any treats to put in the bag). I stamped my mummy and punched him out with the wide oval punch then popped him up on the pre-printed tag that comes in the kit. I gave him a googlie eye adhered with a glue dot. I also used the Decorative Label punch and cut it in half, then glued each half behind the tag. I took my crop-a-dial and punched 2 holes at the top and laced my gorgeous 1/2" striped satin ribbon through it and tied it in a bow. Now all it needs is candy corn! (I'm not sayng who ate the candy corn. It might have been Stamp Bear...)

OK, now more EXCITING news! Look what I got today!

Christmas with Tulle!

I just got the Cherry Cobbler tulle from the Holiday catalogue and I love it! Here are 2 cards I made using the tulle as a ribbon.

For both carda I used the Holiday Ornaments framelits. To create the 3-D ornament. you will need to cut out 3 of the same ornament and fold them in half, then adhere them together on 2 sides.
I cut the tulle at 2 1/2" then folded it in half so it was fuller, then tied with ribbon or twine. Use a glue dot to stick it to the card.
The Holiday catalogue is amazing! If you haven't received your copy, please send me an email and I will make sure to get one to you!
Please take a moment to check out my upcoming events!

Have a great day!

Fun and Fabulous Friday...friend card

Welcome to another Friday, where the cards are fun and fabulous...and easy to recreate.
The colour combination is Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.
The stamp sets are Everything Eleanor and Friendly Phrases.
The card base is Crumb Cake; mat with Pool Party; mat with Very Vanilla.
I stamped the swirl in Crumb Cake and the bird in Early Espresso.
I attached a piece of retired designer series paper.
I attached the Pool Party seam binding, using glue dots to make my ruffles at the top.
I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso, punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch; I cut a scrap of Early Espresso card stock with the 1 3/4" circle punch and adhered them together.
I stamped an image with Pool Party ink onto Pool Party cardstock and punched it out with the 2 3/4" scallop circle punch.
I used dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the Pool party piece, and dimensionals to adhere the scallop piece to the card.
A ten-minute card!

First All Day Crop

There were 4 croppers at my first ever all day crop! My punches, Big Shot, dies, inks and stamp sets were all available for everyone to use. I had several door prizes to give away (and everyone won at least once!) My display boards were situated all around the room, providing inspiration. We had lasagna and ceasar salad for supper, my Keurig was busy all day providing coffee or tea and we had awesome snacks all day long. I designed 2 make and takes for everyone to do. We all got our creative juices flowing and created many projects, and mostly we had fun!
My next all day crop is Saturday September 22 from 10:00am-midnight! Please email me to reserve your spot! To see details, click HERE.

I have been making Christmas cards since July (it is never too early) and I have been coming up with new designs to feature in my Christmas card stamp-a-stacks (where you literally stamp a stack of 12 cards), but I designed this card especially for my Stamper's Club.

I used the Snow Flurry Bigz die and the champagne glimmer paper to create the snowflakes. I stamped the word Joy (from the Joyous Celebrations set) with versamark and embossed with Early Espresso embossing powder. I punched it out with the wide oval punch and popped it up with dimensionals. The paper is from the Candlelight Christmas specialty paper pack and the card base is made with Early Espresso card stock.
The products used are from the Holiday Mini catalogue.

Fun and Fabulous Friday-introducing Loyalty Cards!

I am still trying to wrap my head around being home after a fabulous convention. I am planning events for  both my customers and downline to attend, and I am excited to earn my first incentive trip! (OK, so I haven't earned it yet, but it is my goal, and with your help I know I can do it!)
I am introducing a Loyalty Card. For every 20.00 you spend before taxes and shipping, you get a point on your card. You can redeem your points as soon as you have as little as 2-you don't have to wait for a full card! Here's how it works:
$20.00=1 point.
redeem 2 points for half off a Friday Night Crop
redeem 4 points for a FREE Friday Night Crop
redeem 6 points for a FREE class*

*excludes Specialty Classes where the stamp set is included.

Once you redeem your points, you start all over! You can redeem points as often as you wish. Here's a one-time bonus: join a Stamper's Club and get 4 points automatically! That's a FREE Friday night crop, or only 2 points away from a FREE class!

I think my customers and downline are simply wonderful, so here's today's Fun and Fabulous card:
