Color yourself happy!

Hello all and welcome to 2018!  I hope you had a wonder holiday season and enjoying the calm of what January can offer.  (Peace I hope!)  :) 

This is also a very exciting time of year for stampers....it's Sale A Bration time!  From January thru March, Stampin Up graciously treats us to FREE goodies when we purchase our favorite crafting supplies.  How awesome is that?!?!?  For every $50 spent on product, you get to pick a level one item from HERE for FREE! (yes, FREE!!!)  This year, because SU turns 30, they added a new level to the Saleabration offering.  Come back next week and see these two items in action because they are pretty awesome!  There will be more to show you, but today I wanted to share some cute and easy cards that you can create on your own with little effort.  Here they are:

These were so fun to make and easy!  I used the Color Me Happy Project Kit that was released to introduce our new Blends line of alcohol markers. (Stay tuned, I am going to share more info on those at the end of the week!) 

When I saw this kit, I was not wild about the stamp set that was offered, but loved the details of the cards themselves so I bought the kit without the stamps.  When it arrived, I was stumped because the photos shown, were with the stamp set I did not buy.  (we have all been there right?)  You see a card, love everything about it, but you don't have the stamp set.  That is what I LOVE about Stampin Up!  Products we offer are easy to make into something new, with little effort.    I simply picked another stamp set, here I used Lift Me Up and one ink color - yes, only one!  I used Basic Gray  and to get the 2 toned look, I simply inked up my image, stamped it on a scratch piece of paper, then stamped on my card.  This gives the look of 2 shades of gray! 

I used the recommended layouts offered from the kit and was pretty proud of how they turned out!  Here is a close up look of everything you get in the kit:

Enough supplies to make 16 cards! I love the details on the envelopes because that would take a lot of time to do myself.  :)  I love that they all coordinate so if you wanted to turn this into a gift, it would be perfect! 

So all in all, don't get caught up in accepting a kit for face value....it can be just as beautiful as YOU can make it.  :)

Until next time!

Merry Christmas to all my favorite stampers!!!

Surprise

Hello my friends!  We are finally to the single digit countdown to Christmas!  I LOVE this time of year - specially with a little bit of white stuff on the ground.  Yep, I am one of those people.  :)  We are celebrating Christmas a little early in the Black Hills with my in laws and we were greeted with 5 inches of fresh snow! 

To start off the week, SU has surprised us with an update to the Clearance Rack.  Some items are 70% off so please check that out here.  There are deep discounts on Framelits, punches and I think I saw an ink pad or two!  These will be only until supplies last so don't delay.

I also have the new Occasions Catalog AND the ever popular Sale a Bration brochure in my hands as I type, so if you need a copy, please let me know.  They are both gorgeous and full of never seen before stampin goodies that I will be playing with in the next couple of weeks. 

That is all for now and thought I would leave you with a picture of my beloved Frankincense aka Frank.  He looks so cute in his hat!
