Sunshine & Rainbows

Sem 1

Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud.  Maya Angelo

Stampin' Up! has the purrrfect Bundle, RAINBOW OF HAPPINESS, to make this possible.

The sentiments are just right:  'a little something to brighten your day', 'you make this world a better place', 'you make me happy' and 'wishing you a rainbow of happiness'.

I made this card using the Ombre Specialty Paper on page 135 AC & the Bundle, page 18 in the new Mini Catalog.  More information in this video!



Sweet Talk Class

The SWEET TALK SUITE is purrrfect for our January prep for February Valentine cards and treats for friends.  Find it on page 8, 9 & 10 in the Mini Catalog.  Check out the video for more information about these products.  I have added swap cards that I received yesterday to give you some more creative ideas.  Don't forget my classes on the 17th ~ two classes that day ~ one in the morning at ten and one in the evening at six.  We'll make four Valentines and one of the sweet little treat boxes.  The class is $10 and I will have everything ready for you to create!

Daffodil Daydreams

You can find this bundle on page 37 in the new mini catalog (LIVE TODAY!).  This is a card I made using the bundle and the matching designer series paper ~ DAFFODIL AFTERNOON.  You can find the DSP in the Sale-a-bration catalog on page 4.  It coordinates so nicely with the stamp set and will have all of us thinking SPRING ~ especially after yesterday, right?

Heart & Home Suite

Another selection from the new Mini Catalog ~ you can find the suite, HEART & HOME,  on pages 58 - 61.  The suite includes two Bundles that coordinate really well together.  The card below is from the Blessings of Home Bundle and uses the Heart & Home DSP.  The color is added with the following Blends Combo Packs ~ Soft Succulent, Pale Papaya, Cinnamon Cider and Fresh Freesia.  All of the information is on the Project Sheet that I have added below (forgot to do this on my usual Tuesday ~ sorry!).  You might want to print it and save it if you like this suite!  The suite also includes Doilies, a Memories & More card pack and cards and envelopes!

Happy Hedgehogs

267472440_10159762860694002_4087715686560239609_n (2)You can find this cute little hedgehog on page 64 in the MINI CATALOG.  The stamp set is bundled with the Hedgehog Builder Punch to make our creative job so much easier!  Just stamp and punch.  Here is a little information about this mammal ~

What are hedgehogs?

They are a small mammal with short limbs and a body low to the ground. Their most distinctive characteristic is the thousands of stiff, sharp spines — harder and sharper than those of a porcupine — that cover the animal’s back and sides, like a pincushion filled with needles.


Has it arrived?

Has what arrived?  Did you find the combined package of Mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure in your mail box yesterday or today?  I am hearing from many of you that the package has arrived.  And, I am so pleased and thought I would give you a reason to 'study' that brochure a little closer.......

Daffodil Afternoon 1 (2)So pretty and a combination of two of the products in the Sale-a-bration (SAB) brochure ~     SPECIAL MOMENTS stamp set on page 14 and DAFFODIL AFTERNOON DSP on page 4.   So, if for some reason your combo package has not arrived by the weekend let me know as I have ordered enough to make sure that everyone who wants one has one!!  Let me know.  Both the catalog and the brochure go 'live' on January 4 and I will have stamp clubs and classes to introduce you to these products in person. 

Color & Contour Bundle

We used the dies from the COLOR & CONTOUR BUNDLE on our stamp club project this month (the coolest little penguin ever, remember?  See it here.).  Here are some more ideas for you using this fabulous bundle that you can find on page 98 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog.  The bundle includes the Color & Contour stamp set and the Scalloped Contours Dies.
