It’s not too late

The Summer nights paper pumpkin Kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards along with coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tea light bags which are perfect to set out on the patio with a tea light candle inside (not incl) to make them shine. To take advantage of this beautiful kit, Just click here in order to subscribe by July 10th, to receive this beautiful kit.

For those of you who would like to expand the Summer Nights kit with a more traditional card making experience, you can also purchase the coordinating add-on, while supplies last. The add-on which is a separate purchase, contains 24 preprinted card bases and coordinating envelopes to expand your kit even further. The Paper Pumpkin kit DOES NOT require the add-on to complete the kit but it will enhance your card kit projects.

Between the leftover kit components and the add-on, It is estimated that you will be able to create at least 20 additional Summer Nights cards! So how cool is that?

The Add-On can be purchased separately for just $13.00CAD as of July 1st, while supplies last (and they sell out quickly) so you don’t want to delay. However you must be an active Paper Pumpkin subscriber to take advantage of this great deal. Click here to find out more.

While staying home, it’s a great time to get all those little things done that we usually put aside. In theory, that’s true, however in practice, not so much. I know for me, my crafting space is a bit of a mess as I pull out paper, ink, stamps and punches to work on a project or two. It keeps me busy and I love crafting so I am ok with that, for a while.

However, there does come a time where I have to step back, clean and organize so I can get ready for my next project. This is where the storage containers come in handy. It’s a great way to store all your ink pads, re-inker bottles, blender pens, and write markers all in one place and I absolutely love how it holds everything together so at a glance I can see which ink I am looking for.

These storage containers can be fully configured to suit your space and makes it clearly visible so you don’t have to go searching. You can purchase these containers on my online store with Stampin’ Up! to get yourself a little bit more organized.

Poppies for all occasions

I love the Poppy stamps and the designer Series paper is beautiful. I made up this card using Whisper White card stock as a base with Poppy Parade matting and the DSP on top. The DSP stands alone and makes for a beautiful card front. After stamping the sentiment and a few roses I punched out the label and adhered it to the front of the card. This is so simple to make and yet is just pops.

With Sale-a-Bration going on, it’s the perfect time to stock up on crafting supplies. With every $60.00 purchase you make, you can choose a free item from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure. New items will be available on March 4th for an even bigger selection of freebies to choose from.

World Card Making day

Did you know that World Card Making Day exists?

Well it does. It takes place every year, on the first Saturday of October. This special day encourages everyone in the whole wide world, to make a homemade card. I sure bet the card companies won’t like that!

Yesterday, I held a card making workshop to celebrate World Card Making Day. We got together to make 2 cards each of 5 different designs for a total of 10 cards to take home. With Christmas within sight, it also gives you a head start on your Christmas cards. I know a lot of people don’t send cards anymore which is a shame. Collecting your mail and receiving a special card from someone makes you smile and what better way to spread the smiles than to send a card.

People give one another cards to celebrate birthday celebrations, wedding ceremonies, accomplishments and much more, in addition to commiserate or support. But exactly how much does your sentiment mean, if it is simply purchased from a retail chain with little thought? Taking a bit of your time to make something sincere on your own, and show the recipient that you’ve really considered them means so much more to the recipient. It shows you care.

Thank you Card

 

Hi everyone, it has been over a month since I have done any crafting due to travelling and some construction taking place.  I cannot believe the withdrawal I experienced during this time.  Crafting is such a stress reliever because you can forget about everything else going on in your life, for just a little while.

I strongly believe that thank you cards are important to show appreciation. I am overdue with some thank you cards so I made up this card as a thank you for an order placed to my business.

I cut the Highland Heather card stock to 5 1/2″ by 11″ and folded in half to make the card base.
I cut two Whisper White card stock at 5 1/4 x 4″
One for the inside and one for the front of the card.

Using the Highland Heather ink pad, I then stamped the Image from the “A little Lace” stamp set and then stamped the sentiment from the “Daisy Lane” stamp set for the front of the card

After adhering the front, I adhered the second Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card. I left this blank so I could write my own comments to the inside.

Voila, an elegant but simple thank you card
