Do you love Paris?

This video features one of the bundles from the Occasions catalog.  If you have a love for Paris or even a cafe setting, you will love the Charming Cafe bundle.  When you use the products together, use your imagination and let it run wild.  The video will help point you in the right direction & you will love Brandi's trifold card!

 Charming ~ don't you think?  You can visit my online store for all the Occasions catalog products or just stop by the Cat/Art Studio for some stamping fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  Susan Elise

Washers, Dimensionals & Foam Strips ~ oh my!

I want to share another Bundle from the Occasions Catalog (page 45).  Here is a video featuring the Barn Door Bundle.  I am really glad that Stampin' Up! has these videos available so that I can be prepared in advance.  I have the Dimensionals and the Foam Strips but not the washers.  (I may have to check those jars of 'stuff' in the garage!) Brandi shows us how easy this card can be when you're prepared!!

January My Paper Pumpkin?

I have been having computer problems.  I haven't been receiving emails and couldn't send emails.  I spent yesterday, all afternoon, working to correct the problems.  Obviously, I didn't do it by myself ~ way to complicated!!!  Anyway, this My Paper Pumpkin kit is from January and I thought it would be a good reminder about creating and sending Valentines.  Or, about coming to my Valentine Card class tomorrow!  I would need to know this morning (at least by early afternoon) so that I can cut cardstock for you.  EMAIL ME NOW!

With a My Paper Pumpkin subscription of just three months you earn rewards toward SALE-A-BRATION!  Let me know if you have questions.  If you would like to subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin, click here or feel free to contact me for more information.  Susan Elise

Snow & Sunshine OR Sunshine & Rainbows

What a weather day!  It reminded me of a bundle in the Occasions Catalog (page 33).  This is a fun bundle and I think you will love it.  My friend, Lynne Galewski, made a wonderful card using this stamp set ~ it is below.



This is Lynn's card.  She is a member of my team, Southern Stars, and she shared this at our recent swap.  If you love to stamp and want to save money the very best way is to join Stampin' Up! ~ we save 20% with every order!  And, during SALE-A-BRATION you choose two additional FREE stamp sets (any set YOU want) ~ with your standard starter kit ($99 for$125 in products).  Let me know if you have questions!

Lots of Happy Card Kit

If you were able to come to my Open House last Sunday afternoon you will remember creating cards with this awesome kit!   This video will provide information on the kit from the Occasions catalog  on page 15.  All of us need to keep cards on hand and this kit makes it easy!  (And, another nice feature is that you can get a refill for the kit!)  Way to go SU!

Sale-A-Bration Day 9.

On Monday I told you about the change Stampin' Up! made this year increasing several of the products in the catalog to the $100 level.  Today's post features the other product in that category ~ the HAPPY WISHES stamp set.  The set includes 16 stamps and you can find it on the last page of the brochure.  You can see some pretty samples presented by Carrie in this video from Stampin' Up!   And, you can earn it for free from the SALE-A-BRATION catalog.  I know you enjoy seeing samples of what you can create with this stamp set.  

I'd love to see what YOU will be creating with this stamp set so I will have it available at my OPEN HOUSE on Sunday afternoon.  Please let me know if you are coming so that I will have a MAKE & TAKE packet ready for you!  See you then!






Sale-A-Bration Day 8.

Sorry, Day 8 should have been yesterday and I was so busy getting ready for my COLORFUL SEASONS CLASS this afternoon that I didn't take the time to post!  I am ready now so today I want to share another Sale-a-Bration product that you can earn for free from the SALE-A-BRATION catalog. Below is a video from Stampin' Up! featuring this stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits.  

With a $50 merchandise purchase from any of the Stampin' Up! catalogs, you can earn this stamp set. 


Stampin' Up! introduced a new level of Sale-A-Bration rewards this year ~ the FREE $100 purchase.  There are two free products at that level in the brochure.  The first is the the Celebrate You Thinlits that pair with this  stamp set.  Combining the two will give you an opportunity to make some amazing projects.
