Happy World Card Making Day! A Christmas "guts" card - Stampin' Up holiday catalog

Happy World Cardmaking day! 
Celebrate for an entire week with Stampin' Up!! (Oct. 1 - 7th)  10% off!

Since the Stampin' Up holiday catalog is now available, there are opportunities to play with the new products in it.  One great way to feature these products is with a "guts" card challenge where you receive several parts of a card that uses the new products, and then you arrange them however you want to put together a unique and different card than someone else. This is a fun way to get various ideas for the same products!  If you want to do something like this, just join Stampin' Up in my online store and I will be glad to share this game with you!!

Here is the card I made for our September "guts" card challenge - I focused on a Christmas theme:

I used several new items from the Stampin' Up holiday and annual catalogs:  2 embossing folders, silver and gold sticky-back pearls, mini gold sequin trim, and pearlized doily.  Here are a couple more pictures of this card;

I love how the galvanized cardstock, pearls, and pearlized doily have a subtle sheen to them!  The gorgeous purple paper and greeting are a return of a previous color, blackberry bliss.  You can see and order all of these products as well as those that are 10% off all w eek in my online store:

My "step-dog" Nala!

My son and his wife visited recently despite the heat of 100 degrees; even though they live in North Carolina and have humid heat, they agreed it was a little warmer here in Arizona.  They went to the Lindsey Stirling concert in Phoenix with us which was an awesome concert, although it was in an outside amphitheatre which involved sitting outside in the heat for 5 hours - we definitely are dedicated fans!  They also brought their little 1+  year old chihauhau, Nala, with them.  Now in addition to 2 furbabies, I have a "step-dog!"  She is full of energy!  Here are some cute pictures of Nala:

Look at those beautiful ears!  And she loves to tug on her big tug toy:

We had an extra doggy crate bed, which she took to right off and ran right into it:

And she loved all the doggy toys that my furbabies have:

It took almost a whole suitcase of doggy stuff to pack for her!

Nala also likes helping to pack up her stuff:

Although I miss my son, his wife, and Nala, I don't think my furbabies miss Nala much, since quite a bit of the attention was on her!!

Holidays are coming - Stampin' Up holiday catalog!

 It's that time of the year when we start to focus on the upcoming holidays, even though you might still be having 90-100 degree weather, like we are here in Arizona!  Stampin' Up's holiday catalog just came out this month:

It has items and projects for all the upcoming holidays, as well as quick and cute card kits to begin those Christmas cards.  If you are like me, you don't send as many Christmas cards as you used to, so you want them to be high-quality and special and the Christmas card kits in Stampin' Up's holiday card meet this criteria.  

Here is one card kit that everyone is sure to love: Santa's Workshop Cards 

Yes, it does look as if you need lots of help from Santa's elves to make these cards. But in fact, they're super quick to assemble because of the preprinted Memories & More card pack. Order all the products you need for making the cards featured in the You Can Make It sections in the 2018 holiday catalog in one go!

Collection includes:
* Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack
* Santa's Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (love that they are red!)
* Santa's Bags
* Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes
* Garden Green Baker's Twine
* Stampin' Dimensionals

 This is the items in the Santa's Workshop Cards Supplies Set #150095 Price: $43.50 which you can order in my online store:

You can see more of the new and awesome holiday items in Stampin' Up's holiday catalog - on the side of my blog is the link to this catalog.  Be prepared for some products you just have to get and easily purchase them in my online store!

Halloween is coming! Monthly craft kits

Gee it is too bad if you missed subscribing to Stampin' Up's monthly kit Paper Pumpkin, especially since this one looks like lots of fun!  Of course with any of the monthly kits you can re-order the refills, repurpose the kits's insides, make the alternate projects, or can suspend and come back next month if you don't want that month's kit.  I  have been a subscriber ever since Paper Pumpkin started and it is sooo super convenient to grab one for a quick project with everything you need to make it. 
  • Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set that you can use over and over!
  • At least one Classic Stampin’ Spot arrives with every kit. The colors don’t repeat in a 12-month period, making it easy to build a collection of colorful ink spots.
 Check it out in  my online store:

But it's even faster to just subscribe at my personalized Paper Pumpkin link here:
