Project Sheet Tuesday on Wednesday

Enjoy coloring with our blends?  I find it very relaxing and the SOFTLY STIPPLED designer series paper let's you do just that ~ relax!    This pretty card highlights the design by coloring with our blends using Moody Mauve and Granny Apple Green.  And, you don't need to worry about 'how to shade those flowers' because the paper does it for you!   The DSP is on page 8 in the Sale-A-Bration catty and is available FREE with a $50 purchase from any of our catalogs.

The DETAILED DOGWOOD stamp set (#162953, FREE today) is on page 15 in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  It is available free until Thursday at midnight (MT)!!!  

Blog 3I have used the SCALLOPED CONTOURS DIES (#155560) on page 166 in Stampin' Up!'s Annual Catalog.  These dies were introduced in the 2021-22 annual catalog so I don't know if they will be retiring but I do know this is a very useful set of dies and they are reasonable at $35 for 8.  Not all dies are that useful, right?

We have THREE DAYS left of Sale-a-bration this year ~ let's take advantage of them (next SAB ~ January 2025!)!  AND, if you have ever given a thought to being your own BEST CUSTOMER by becoming a Demonstrator, give me a call!!!  It's a great ride friends!

It's the BEST time!
