Today’s the day! The holiday catalog is now LIVE – let the fun begin. And what’s more fun than building a snowman? The best part about this snowman is you don’t even need snow! How great is that?
This adorable card was made with the new Snowman Season bundle featuring the Snowman Season stamp set and Snowman builder punch.
The card base is Pretty Peacock cut to 5.5″ x 8.5″ and folded in half. Cut a piece of Noble Peacock Foil sheets in Pretty Peacock to 5.25″ x 4″ place it into the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot. Stamp the Snowman on Whisper White card stock and punch out with matching punch. Punch out hat from Basic Black card stock and twig arms from Early Espresso card stock. Attach to snow man. Use Real Red curly ribbon to tie scarf around snowman and adhere Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to hat. Adhere to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamp greeting in Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink and use Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out. Adhere to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. And Voila! You built a Snowman!

Well it’s been a while but I am back and determined to keep up to date with my blog! August was a busy month – lots of family fun, activities, and of course the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog pre-order period. The new holiday catalog is just full of wonderful new stamp sets, punches and embellishments and I have been busy playing with all the new items!
One of my favorites is the new Perfectly Plaid bundle. The stamp set and punch make it easy for all levels of crafters to create beautiful, one of a kind holiday cards in minutes. Pair the stamp set with the new Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink and you have a “Wow” card in the making.
To make this card, start with a Shaded Spruce card base cut to 5.5″ by 8.5 ” and fold in half. Next take a piece of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 3″ by 5.5″. Adhere the DSP to the card base. On a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 2.5″ by 5.5″ punch out the tree shape. Stamp the “Merry Christmas ” greeting in Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink and add red rhinestones for a bit of sparkle. Adhere piece to DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Perfectly Plaid Bundle, Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper, and Delicata Golden Glitz metallic ink will be available beginning September 4th.

Sometimes opportunity comes in unexpected ways and usually
when we are not really looking for it or looking for something different. I know that’s what happened to me with my
business. I was happy being a Stampin’
Up! customer – supporting my friend and buying the supplies I needed to satisfy
my hobby. Then one day my friend said to
me “you should really sign up as a demonstrator and take advantage of the
discount.” At first I thought oh no – not my style – I am not a pushy
salesperson – BUT neither is my friend.
She never pushed me to buy what I didn’t already want or need so I
decided to take a leap of faith and learn more about being a Stampin’ Up!
What I learned surprised me.
First it was only a $99 (plus tax) investment to get started. And what did I get for my initial
investment? Over $125 in fantastic
products plus business supplies and a fabulous support network to help me along
the way. Next I learned that to stay
active as a demonstrator I only needed to sell $300 worth of products every
quarter. Well heck, I was spending that much every three months as a customer and
NOT getting the benefit of the 20% discount.
Once I did the math I was sold (I’m a numbers gal so once I did the math
it was a no brainer for me).
I was also relieved to realize I didn’t need to pressure
people into purchasing from me, in fact I could just go along my merry little
way without ever having to “bother” another person about my hobby. And so I began my hobby – spending time in my
studio creating one of a kind cards to share with friends and family. As I worked with the stamps, ink, and paper,
I grew more confident in my abilities to create mini works of art in the form of
a greeting cards. Friends and family
loved receiving my special cards for birthday, anniversaries, and other
occasions. And I LOVED makng them. To me, my little “hobby” is a great outlet
for reducing stress and anxiety. Escaping
to my studio to work with my stamps, ink, and paper is my “me time” when I can shut out the world and relax. I am always so much more relaxed after I have
spent some time creating.
I am passionate about what I do and I want to share this
opportunity with others. The absolute beauty
of stamping is there is NO right way to create.
Each project is as unique as the person making it. Stamping is for all skill levels – beginning
crafter to avid creator and no prior experience is necessary. If you have ever thought you might like to
try your hand at creating with stamps, ink, and paper now is the time. With the current Stampin’ Up! Extra Extra
promotion you can join now until August 31, 2019 and receive an extra $30 in
product in your starter. Yup for just
$99 (plus tax) you will receive over $155 in exclusive Stampin’ Up! products

As we approach the end of July it’s hard to believe that summer is basically over! Back to school sales are ongoing, Christmas in July events are everywhere, and I’ve even seen some Halloween decorations floating around. While we all groan and complain about “rushing the seasons” I am no less guilty for doing the same thing. BUT I have a reason – a good one I think.
I am a paper crafter and I have lots of craft shows lined up for the fall, which means I need to start prepping my goods now and that means lots of lovely holiday themed items. AND that’s why I am so excited that the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog is coming. As a demonstrator, I will be able to pre-order from the holiday catalog beginning on August 1 and from what I have seen so far there is a lot to love – adorable Snowmen, Jolly Santas, Twinkling Stars, and so much more. There is even a section featuring 25 gifts under $25 that will be sure to please the crafters on your list.
The catalog will go live to customers beginning on September 4th but you can get a copy of the catalog from your local Stampin’ Up Demonstrator in August so you can be ready to order on September 4th! If you don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator you can contact me and I will be happy to send a catalog your way. Happy Stampin’!
