No strings and I get a FREE gift?!?

Hello my friends - good day to you!  Can you believe we are getting to the end of March?!?!  Time flies when you are having fun.  :) 

So I have some exciting news for you.  Have you ever wondered what we do at my Krumm Cake meetings?  What are Krumm Cake meetings you ask?  Well - they are FUN THAT CANNOT BE MISSED!!!!  This is where my team of stampers, gets together at my house, we stamp, talk, laugh and have some treats!  Have you ever wanted the attention of multiple stamping experts in one room?  Now do I have your attention?

Excited

Well this is your chance to see, no strings attached.  :)  Typically you need to be part of my team to attend.  Anyone who replies to my blog message, or on my Facebook page will be entered into a drawing to be a "Honorary Krumm Cake for one day"!  What does that get you?  We have a meeting this Saturday, March 25th where I will have some giveaways, (like I typically do) we will have a couple of projects to make (hello!  We love to stamp!) and fun had by all!  You will receive some goodies in a very special bag too!  Cool right?  And just for fun, to get the full experience of being a Krumm Cake, I will let you use my discount the day of the meeting to order ANY current supplies you would like (remember you are paying the bill though).  I am pretty sure I just heard a couple of people faint on that one.  LOL 

So you know what to do, so I will let you get to it.  I will draw Thursday evening so the winner has time to get ready for Saturday.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I can't wait to see who the lucky person is!

Until next time!

It's not too late to think about a great gift to give!

Hello my friends!  How is October treating you?  I have to say, the weather in MN has been unseasonably warm so there are no complaints here!  

So I have some exciting news to share with you all, did you have fun on National Cardmaking Day?  I was crafting with a friend making paper flowers and let me tell you, we had so much fun crafting, laughing and telling stories!  I am a firm believer that time with a dear friend is the best therapy EVER!!! So back to the exciting news....First, you have one more day to get some amazing sale items from Stampin Up!, have you seen them?  Let me share:

 

What excites me the most about these specials has to be the Designer Tin of Cards!  Have you ever had that friend or family member that you want to give a gift to, but they have EVERYTHING?!?!?  Well they don't have handmade cards made by you!  Yes, this makes the best gift ever!! This fun printed tin gives you plenty of room to store the cards that you make from this kit, plus room for more. Kit includes tin and enough card bases, accents, and envelopes for 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs. How cool is that?  The only thing you need is a little bit of ink and a stamp set of choice.  Easy, peasy!  I also love the Envelope punch board - did you know you can make 60 different sized envelopes?!?!?  Awesome!!  These special prices are valid thru October 5th so get them while you can!

Second - how about some FREE Designer Series Paper?  Yes, I said FREE!!  Check out this special:

DSP

Have you seen the drop dead gorgeous Designer Series Paper that Stampin Up! offers?  Let's take a look at the packages you can choose from:

 

Now it is REALLY hard to pick a favorite, right? I am still loving Floral Boutique and By the Shore.  I think both offer versatile that is second to none!  I also have a great gift giving project that features some of these beautiful papers:

  Different pockets

I had so much fun making these - what do you think?  I cannot wait to see what you can come up with using our beautiful Designer Series Paper!  This special is available thru October 31st so get your favorites at a great price!  Until next time!

OH BOY!!! The new Holiday catty is FINALLY available!!

So have you seen it?!?! Oh my is this catty trouble!  LOL  I think at this point in the game, it would be easier to tell you what I "haven't" purchased from it yet.  We still have plenty of time folks!

So starting the month of September, I have a special deal for you all.  Each month, I am going to feature a special bundle of products that I think are MUST HAVES. When you purchase the products in the bundle, you will get three FREE project ideas, sent right to your home utilizing the projects in the bundle!  These may be cards or gift items but these products will not be at any of my classes so if you like EXCLUSIVE, this is definitely for you!  So let me tell you about the September product bundle: 

 
 So this month, my special bundle is the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and one of the coordinating stamp sets. (AREN'T THEY CUTE?!?!) I have been playing with both stamp sets, face it, it will be impossible to pick just one so why not get both?  Here is my first creation:
 
Halloween
Isn't he cute?!?!  This is also using one of the new thinlits called Home Sweet Home and the woodgrain background that we all love. I am not largely into Halloween but for some reason this year....I don't think this will be the last Halloween idea you see from me. What do you think?  How about we see some Christmas fun?
Holiday16_p06b-50
All this cuteness, it's hard to pick a favorite!  What I love about both sets together...you have some many holidays at your fingertips.  I will always be the one to look at a stamp set and think, how many ideas/seasons/holidays will I be able to get from this one set?  Stampin Up! listened and gave use multiple stamp sets that work with some of our new punches and thinlits which is awesome!!  I have one more idea to show you...this one is my favorite!
Shrinky dinks
They are minis!!!  LOL  Do you remember Shrinky Dinks?  Quite laughing....you know you do.  This is paper/plastic you can stamp on, then color and put it in the oven for just a few minutes and what happens is so adorable!  Here is a close up:
Close up shrinky
Your eyes are not playing tricks on you - they are smaller than a quarter!  I am working on adding them to some cute and easy cards but just had to share this with you.  If you still are not sure what Shrinky Dinks are, here is a link to the paper on Amazon but I was able to get mine at Michael's with my 50% off coupon:
 
https://www.amazon.com/Shrinky-Dinks-Bright-White-Creative/dp/B00IFEBBXS/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1473389246&sr=8-10&keywords=shrinky+dinks
 
What do you think?  Is this a bundle you have to have?  If so, here are the actions you should take:
 
1. Pick which stamp set you would like.  (or both of them works too!)
2. Sign into my shopping website HERE.
3. Enter the item number for your stamp set(s) and cookie cutter builder punch.
4. Use hostess code UN3HGTC9 where indicated.
5. Submit order and wait for your goodies to arrive! 
 
You will receive your order directly from Stampin Up! AND a goodie package from me too with your project ideas!  How exciting is that?!?! 
 
I hope you fall in love with this cookie cutters too and if you have any questions, please ask!
 
Until next time,

Please don't let this one pass you by

So the wind is different, Fall is just around the corner which is my FAVORITE season!  Pumpkin Spice, crisp fall leaves and the smell of harvest in the air.  How about you?  What's your favorite season?  The only problem is Fall in Minnesota never lasts long enough so we need to take in every single minute that it is here!  :) 

I have been busy playing with the beautiful stamp set call Thoughtful Branches, you know me and trees....I just love them!

All 3 together

I was out cruising on Pinterest and found some amazing work by Marelle Taylor.  I fell in love with her green card for the simplicity but felt it needed just a little more so I added the embossing on my version:

Green

This card could be changed for Birthdays, Thanks You or a Just Because card.  Sometime I find my most favorite creations are the ones with simple and clean designs that took little effort, would you agree?  Here is a closer look at the Fall version from the stamp set:

Golden autumn

The leaves of the tree are created by adding ink to my stamp, then spritz the stamp with water and  stamping on watercolor paper.  This technique will give a watercolor painting look without having to be an artist.  Don't you love what the gold foil Acetate gives the card?!??  Another piece of texture and a burlap knot to finish.  Here is one last design:

Blessed tree

This one was using the front AND the back view of the Foil Designer Acetate.  Leave it to Stampin Up! to give us gold AND silver in the same package of DSP!  I also used a new greeting stamp set from the NEW Holiday Catalog called Paisleys & Posies.  Have you seen the new Holiday Catty?!?!  It is gorgeous and have preordered 3 different times from it already!!!  LOL  If you need a copy of your own, please let me know and I will get you a copy.

I hope this inspires you to purchase the Thoughtful Branches stamp set or the Beautiful Branches Thinlits to make your own masterpieces featuring these beautiful trees!  Go ahead and get the bundle and have twice the fun!  (You know you deserve it!)  Remember, this bundle is only available till August 31st so time is ticking.  Don't let it pass you by!

Have a great day stampers!

Surprise, surprise and bring on some trees!!

I love surprises as much as I love any kind of tree stamps!  Yes, I am one of those tried and true lovers of the oldest stamp from Stampin Up! Lovely as a Tree.  Have you seen this one?

Lovely as a tree

I use this set for Christmas cards, Sympathy cards, Thank yous - manly cards...well you get the picture.  If you don't have this set, YOU NEED IT!!! Here are some of the cards we have made in the past with this set:

WP_20140825_006

WP_20150910_004 (2)

Looking at these makes me want to get this set out and play again!  

So here is the surprise...leave it to Stampin Up! to give us another tree stamp set to love!  Starting August 2nd, you have the opportunity to purchase the following brand new stamp set called Thoughtful Branches:

Thoughtful branches

To make this even better -there is a matching Thinlit set to boot!  Here are those:

Thinlits

This bundle can be purchased for $52 (+s/h and tax)  starting on August 2nd!  Here is a card I started with - I haven't even started with the thinlets!

Trees

Again...LOVE the trees in this set and there are a few to pick from!  What do you think?  Do you need this one?  :)  A special bonus for those purchasing this bundle from me...you will receive 3 projects made with this bundle, already cut and ready to stamp just for ordering this from me!  (Think of this as class on the go with 3 ideas to start using this bundle with!)  How exciting right?  Let me know if you would like to order this starting August 2nd...happy stamping!!  :)
