It's a special kind of giveaway!

Have you heard of the new Stamparatus?  (A stampa who?!?!)  LOL  So a few months ago, Stampin Up! had an outstanding launch of the amazing positioning tool called the Stamparatus. This tool is like no other and will help you:

  • create crisp, clear images.
  • correct the action of not having enough ink on your stamp, and getting an incomplete image.
  • create  multiple copies of your beauty designs
  • create multiple step projects easier

And those are just a few!  Because this product was so wildly received, it will not be ready for sale till June 2018 when the new annual catalog is released.  BUT, I have a surprise for you!  I was lucky enough to be part of a team of demonstrators that were selected to be part of the design team for this new tool! (How cool is that?!?!?)  Because of that affiliation, I was one of the first to receive the Stamparatus, AND I was able to get one more secured thru a pre-order so I am giving one away!  Here is a look at the tool:

Stamparatus win

I have had a chance to use mine and let me tell you, it's pretty cool!!!  Only a sampling of demonstrators and customers, were able to get one of these tools so it is a pretty big deal to have one in your possession!  I have come up with a handful of ways you can get qualified to win your very own Stamparatus so let's see what those are:

Hello my friends!

Here is just a few hints they are telling us about the FREE gift:

  • The free gift complements the kit but is not needed to complete the kit.
  • The free gift is exclusive to the March Paper Pumpkin kit and cannot be found anywhere else.
  • The free gift is a crafting product with a wide range of use that can be used on a variety of paper crafting projects.

Well that sounds pretty good to me!  Check out this short video showing some of the amazing kits we have experienced with Paper Pumpkin:

What I love about these kits is the easy to follow instuctions, everything I need is in the box(you may need a pair of scissors but that is it), and it's all prepped, and ready to go!  Now who doesn't love ready and on the go crafting?!? 

Now if this news couldn't get any better...you can earn FREE Saleabration products on top of getting a discount on this red box of goodness! If you prep-pay your Paper Pumpkin for 3 months - this will earn you a Free Saleabration item!  If you prepay for 12 months - this is where things get really crazy....you will get 4 Saleabration items FREE, AND save $2/month on your kit!  (Say what?!?)  Yes!  Here is what could work for you:

Pp

At the very least, I recommend giving it a try for 1 month, which will get you the FREE birthday gift for March.  If you area faithful subscriber, or you already know you are going to love it, maybe think about pre-paying your subscription and treat yourself to the birthday gift AND your choice of 4 free Saleabration items at the first level!  Or, you could really knock it out the park and get two Saleabration items at level 2(did you know there are thinlits at this level that are beyond awesome?!?) 

I hope you consider giving this red box a try - I have been loving it for 3 years and counting and never wanting to shut if off, for fear of missing a gotta have kit!  Give it a try today!

Until next time!

You know you want a Big Shot

Hello my friends!  So I promised that I would let you in on a secret, and this is too good not to read.  Who out there has a Big Shot?  Who out there wishes they had a Big Shot?  Did you know that everyone who purchases a Big Shot from me, gets their first embossing folder for FREE?  This is my way of saying Thank You for investing in your hobby, and I want you to be able to play once you get the Big Shot.

What makes this time of year even more special is because you get more for FREE!  Take a look at one of your options:

20180120_151333223_iOS

This year is the very first year that you can choice this gorgeous set of Thinlits as your free gift for buying what you love!  During Saleabration, you have the opportunity to pick from items that are not currently for sale and only available for a limited amount of time.  Some are considered level 1 items that you can chose when you spend $50, but there are 2 additional items that you can chose when you spend $100, which is where you would be when you invest in a Big Shot!  Here are the two items that you can chose as your FREE gift when you spend $100: 

 
Both were my favorites the moment I saw them, and have used the Thinlits so much in a short amount of time! If I were getting a Big Shot, this is how I would do it!  Getting the deal above would get you the gorgeous Thinlits, an embossing folder of your choice, and the Big Shot all for $110 plus s/h and tax.  How exciting is that?!?!? 
 
This deal is only available thru me and only thru March 31, 2018.  This will get you a great start into creating some one of a kind projects so don't wait, you know you want to.  :) 
 
Please be sure to subscribe to my Facebook page where I feature tips, give-aways and projects that I am working on!  This past week was a great product that would go along with your new Thinlits too!  Contact me today!
 
Until next time!

You know you want these markers!

Hello my friends - let's talk color!

A few months ago, we were introduced to an amazing new product called Blends.  These are alcohol base markers and let me tell you, these will change the way you color!

Blends

If you were around a couple of years ago, you will remember we had markers like these before, but I am here to say, SU listened and improved the quality beyond my expectations!  I find that I can't put them down, when I start playing!  Here are some projects I have created with them:

20171016_003017550_iOS

20171016_003025389_iOS

20171102_024710570_iOS

 They are so easy to use and so easy to "blend".  (clever name right?!?!)  What I love most is how you can create such texture to your coloring with little effort.  I would recommend purchasing them in a color set. (you will receive a dark and a light shade, in the color of your choice)  Here is a link to the catalog with all the information you need to get going with our new Blends.  I would recommend using our beautiful Memento Ink pad in Tuxedo Black to stamp your image, then you can start to color any way you like.  I like to start with the darker color first, then I blend the lighter color right over the top to be sure to even out any harsh lines in my coloring.  My preferred cardstock is the Shimmery White so I get a little added sparkle for good measure. 

Stampin Up has created some great how to videos to get us going in the right direction.  Here are those links:

I cannot say enough about these markers!  If you have any questions, or would like to give them a try, ask me today!  We have been using these in my monthly card class and have so much fun!  And I have to ask, who doesn't want to feel like a true artist?  :)  Until next time!

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:

  20180117_043504243_iOS
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:

Blends 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!
