Bonus Days have arrived

Earn in July and Spend in August.

Bonus Days only last for one month but it’s a wonderful time to stock up on your crafting supplies and earn additional products in August. Here’s how it works;

For every  $60 CAD you spend on Products from the new annual catalog between July 1 and Aug 3, 2020 (before shipping and tax), you’ll earn a  $6 CAD Bonus Days coupon that you can redeem between August 4-31, 2020. It’s a great time to shop now and apply to coupons to additional product in August.

You can also earn Bonus Days coupons by purchasing a 3-, 6-, or 12-month Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscription (or by adding a 1-month prepaid subscription to your order to reach $60 CAD).

With Paper Pumpkin, you’ll save time and money while you build a collection of crafting supplies. Every month you’ll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won’t repeat a color in a 12-month period). In no time at all, you’ll have a variety of stamps and ink to use on other projects. In addition, your first kit includes a free clear stamping block that you’ll use every month. If you would like to subscribe for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit, click here and you will receive your all inclusive kit every month.

For only $13.00 CAD, you will have the most expansive crafting experience of the summer! The Add-On kit contains 24 preprinted card bases and coordinating envelopes.


Life’s a Beautiful Journey

We all need to tell the people in our lives that they matter and what better way than to give or send them a card. After all, as the card says “Life’s a Beautiful Journey” and they are a part of that journey. I will be sending these out later today. I only wish I had some Very Vanilla envelopes but sadly I am out of them at the moment.

The card base is made from Early Espresso and the matting is Crumb Cake. I stamped a light image from the Very Versailles stamp set, onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with some scripty writing so it looks like an old document. I then embossed it, using the Old World 3D embossing folder to give it a crumbled paper look.  I lightly used a sponge dauber in crumb cake to highlight the texture and give it an aged look.  I then tore around the edges  to make it look even older, I sponged Early Espresso around the edges as well to enhance it.  I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Father’s Day is coming

Father’s Day is coming so I made this masculine card for the men in our lives. It is a generic card so it could be used as a Father’s Day Card, a birthday card, or even a retirement card. Whatever special day that is going on in their lives.

The card base is made with Night of Navy Card stock. The DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration “County Club Designer Series Paper”. I also used the stamp set “Well Dressed” and stamped the hat on the DSP before fuzzy cutting it out. The Sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I love how all the stamp sets work so well together.

The Measurements are as follows;

  1. Night of Navy card base, 5 1/2 x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ then folded
  2. DSP, 5 1/4″ x 4″
  3. Vellum, 4″ x 3″
  4. Night of Navy Mat, 2 1/2″ x 3″
  5. Whisper White, 2 1/4 x 2 3/4″

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. Don’t forget to use the May HOST CODE – P3ADAX96 for any orders under $200.00 to earn unique rewards from me.
