Oh how I love pretty paper!

Hello my stampin friends!  I have been busy creating in my room and I have a treat for you!  Do you ever have those friends or family members that are extremely hard to buy gifts for?  Well I do and this year, I have been thinking of how to get around that feeling!  I was playing with the paper pockets I had shown you about a month ago and thought, let's start with a 12 in x 12 in piece of paper.  Check.  Now I had this pocket, what can I put in it?  I came up with a care package of greeting cards!

Blue pocket

Would you like to see the cards?  Here they are:

Inside blue pocket

The top project, to the left, is a cute gift card holder and then 3 every day cards.  (A Birthday, Thank You and Thinking of you card)  How cute is that?  I also love how custom you can make these and who wouldn't love a little gift like this?  I can see giving this to cheer up a neighbor, thank a co-worker or maybe to a friend that you just want to treat!  How about a Christmas gift?  Take a look at this:

Green envy

This one is my favorite!  Would you like to see what is inside?  Let's take a look:

All trees

I have fallen in love with this technique!  Simple masking with daubers and ink and of course, Sheltering Tree.  This card layout can be used for some many occasions by just changing the colors!  What do you think?  Sounds like fun right? 

I will be hosting a class to make your own gifts just like above.  This will be a limited seating engagement where you will be able to make 2 pockets and 6 cards to fill them with.  There are a few ways you can get a seat:

Option 1 - Purchase your favorite 3 packages of the Designer Series Paper that is currently on sale and bonus...you get to pick one FREE! (you will need to purchase these by October 31 to get your FREE package of paper - see my website for detailed info on this special)

Option 2 - Pay a flat fee of $20.

Option 3 - Join my team of merry Krumm Cakes and your class is FREE!

I will be hosting this event on the following dates:

Saturday, November 26th (thanksgiving weekend)

Saturday, December 10th

This will be limited to 8 stampers per event so please RSVP ASAP to get your seat!  Sound like fun?  Let me know if you would like to attend!

Happy stampin!!

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:

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!
