Stampin' Up! has announced another fabulous promotion that will take place December 23rd - January 31st. However, December 23rd, is the ONLY DAY to receive this bundle at the 20% discount AND receive FREE SHIPPING on the bundle!!!!! After that day, the Free Shipping promotion ends and this bundle will just be available by itself.

To take advantage of this savings, you can e-mail me at and I'll put your order with another order I have going in so that you don't have to spend the $70 to get the free shipping.

You can also order online at , but you will need to add a few things to your order to get the free shipping by going this route.

To make the deal even sweeter. If you purchase this bundle before the end of December you will be able to attend my January Workshop for FREE! That's right. I will be holding my first workshop of the year on Saturday Jan. 17th. We will be using some new stamp sets from the upcoming Spring-Summer 2009 Catalog. This bundle will be part of that workshop.

A little Something

Yes, it is that time of year to let people know you care and appreciate them, just a little something. My daughters and I spent the day making up little goodies for friends, teachers and bus drivers. Here is a little something and a poem that goes along with it. Thanks to my downline Sandy for this great idea!
When Icy Fingers, Nose And Feet
Are Wishing for a Warming Treat,
Don't let your Frosty Spirit Droop,
Make up some tasty Snowman Soup!

Party Invites!

I sent some party invites out to my downline and after a couple days of sending them out I found they were not all delivered as the postage cost was not right on them. They came out cute anyway!

Something for the kiddies!

Yes I have been seeing so many of these on line, new I had to do one for my kids. An advent calendar, with treats inside everyday for my girls. Good thing I only have two girls I do not think I could fit more than two goodies inside of each tin anyway. Thanks to the Crop-a dile I could put some eyelets in the top of the cookie sheet for the ribbon to go in. Got love that crop-a-dile!

Great Weekend of Projects!

What a great day I had on Saturday going to my uplines annual Glad Heart Gathering. Missy Shipman always amazes me with her excitement and projects. It is so fun stamping with other Stampin Up demonstrators. Missy was part of Founders Circle this year. She was so great in bringing some of the project ideas back to us! These are the things we made. How neat it was getting there and finding a chocolate bar in our place with our letter of our first name on it!

We did some decor elements on these mugs and then to personlize them we all put our letter of our name on them. Gotta Love it!
We decorated a date book with some Big Shot Hearts! Beautiful cards/tags and ordament using baja breeze

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Lastly this is the thanksgiving table. We made a place card, napkin holder, picture/or menu holder, and card.

This was the Holiday Table. We had a money/check holder and also a wine tag.

Hershey Park Visit!

This is my daughter Amber with Reese's Cup and My daughter Talia and Myself. We were all sporting our green tshirts all weekend so we knew where all of the girlscout group was.

Happy 4th!

Just wanted to wish you all a Happy FOURTH Of JULY! These are a couple cards I made and sent out to a couple family members. I also made a little goodie and ofcourse I filled with Hershey Candies. I just got back from Hershey PA. We went with my daughters GirlScout troop. Boy that Chocolate World is something else. I am not a big chocolate fan, but how can you not be after visiting a place like that.!!! It was great.

My July Calendar!

One of my favorite things to do every month is to create my fridge calendar. This is just an example of what my July calendar looks like, I took a picture before everything has been filled in. Almost everyday is always filled with something. I combined Creative memories and Stampin Up with my calendars.

Graduation Card

This was my favorite card. We folded a card in half and used half of the inside of the card for money or a check. Isn't that always what a graduate really wants?! The star image on the front was ver glittery. We embossed craft classic red with Heat and stick powder and then finished it off with dazzling diamond glitter. Oh lala! Love It!
