Six Square Inches = One Tree

28 Nov

Merry Christmas!

Here’s a Kathy Original for you! Woot! Woot! It uses the 1″ Square Punch which is 30% off until 1:50 am …that’s just a few hours away! Hint! Hint! It’s only $11.17!

I punched 6 squares from the same sheet of 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. The paper pattern sort of gives the impression of garland drapes and little red balls, don’t you think? Okay, so you really have to stretch your imaginative powers! But, it’s pretty, right? I used the little star from the Holiday Collection Framelits Dies set and a little bit of Silver Glimmer Paper to create my sparkling tree topper!

Stampin’ Dimensionals
A perfect stocking stuffer!

A scrap of Soft Suede suffices for the trunk. I used Classic Cherry Cobbler ink with the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The largest Bitty Banners Framelit was the perfect size! Every piece, except for the tree trunk, is popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional! In my opinion, they’re a must have for every paper-crafter!

I added a surprise package on the inside. Another square, punched from the paper pack, a little stamped bow atop the package, and a tiny rhinestone — this card is a wrap! I hope you like it!

A RemARKable Day

31 Jul

I had a GREAT Saturday! Come o’dark-thirty on Saturday morning I met up with my RemARKable friend, Danielle, and her teammate, Heather, and we were off, bound for the RemARKable team meeting in PA! What a great day! In addition to celebrating accomplishments, I heard all about Convention, took pictures of hundreds of Convention swaps on display, participated in and enjoyed the demonstrator show and share, watched a great demonstration by fellow demonstrator, Lisa Chatterjee, tried every new die and framelit in the Holiday mini (going live tomorrow, August 1), used almost every new product from the Holiday Mini in some way, won a prize for my swap, and a door prize. WooHoo!

Our next RemARKable team event is September 22nd in Spring Grove, PA and is open to All demonstrators. If you are not a demonstrator but want to have fun like this, consider joining my team or ask to attend as my guest to check out the fun in person. Join my team in August and hit the road with me for a fun trip and a great time with this RemARKable team. Just click on the Group Therapy button here! If you don’t want to ever do another thing, this is a great time to get the kit…remember, you get to pick what you want in your kit! Get all new Holiday mini products or the new MDS 2 or anything else you want!  Get $125 in products for only $99! It’s such an incredible deal! Ask me about it!

Colors to Love

25 Jul

Are you feelin’ the love? I am. I’ve fallen in love with the new 2012-14 In Colors…Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, and Midnight Muse. They’re all used on this fun card. Okay, I’ll admit it. I didn’t feel that love-at-first-sight flush. You know what I mean. I didn’t ooh! and ahh! when I saw them. You know what we all thought when we first saw Summer Starfruit. But, I’m feelin’ the love now! How about you? This bright and colorful card was the project created at a recent Mom and Me workshop. I used a birthday sentiment from the Word Play set but by just changing the sentiment, this card — simple enough for kids — could be used for just about any occasion!

Stampin’ Up! knows that we’d all love to have the new In Colors, and they know we all love a deal, soooooo they’ve offered us a Card Stock & Pad Kit (#126835) for just $29.95. The kit has 20 sheets of 8-1/2″ x 11″ card stock, 4 each in the 5 in Colors, and 5 Classic Stampin’ Pads, 1 each in the 5 In Colors. Add on the Stampin’ Write Markers (#126856) at just $14.95 for the set of 5 In-Colors and those cute little In Color Dahlias (#127556) — 20 flowers, 4 each of the 5 In Colors — and you’ve got the makings of some bright and colorful cards that everybody will love!

Until  the end of July, order $50 in products — and the In Color choices above fit the bill (pardon the pun) — and get the Reason to Smile stamp set for just $5.00…the choice of clear mount or wood mount is yours! Hurry! The deadline is just around the corner for this brand new stamp set. Order online here or contact me to place your order!
