Happy Monday!!

I had the most FABULOUS weekend!!! 4 stamping "gigs" in 3 days!!  I figured by Sunday afternoon I would be ready to drop in my tracks and never want to touch a stamp again ... but I was wrong!!!  I was pumped and ready for more ... so here I am to share something I'm REALLY excited about!!!

A new kit that ROCKS - MY - WORLD!!!

I've always loved crafts.  That's when crafting came into my regular Sunday afternoons.  As mom was busy doing "mom stuff" I kept busy with crafts ... that's when KITS came into my life.  I LOVED kits - paint by number kits, rug hooking kits (am I dating myself here???), knitting kits and cross stitching kits.  Nothing made me happier than a cold, rainy (or snowy) Sunday ... and being able to sit down at the kitchen table and have everything I needed to make something all by myself ... with the smell of Mom's roast beef cooking in the oven!  ahhhh .....

Fast forward 37 years ... now stamping is my love.  For the 8 years I've been in this business I have always wanted to have an "all-in-one" kit that I could offer customers.  A kit that has all the pre-cut supplies, embellishments, inks, stamps ... everything!!  Yyyyyyyep.  You guessed it ... there is now such a kit available!!! (*insert sound of me squealing here*).  WAIT!  It gets better!  Stampin' Up! HAS had kits offered in the past .. there are kits to make 8 cards, there is the Paper Pumpkin which offers little projects and/or kits to make 4 cards .... but that wasn't enough for me!!  I wanted a BIGGER kit ... one that makes MORE cards, with MORE variety and with a better value for money.  Yyyyyyep.  You guessed it again ... there is now such a kit available!! (*insert the sound of me squealing here ... again ...*)

This kit is THE kit to get if :

  • you are a new'ish stamper
  • if you have tried stamping, like stamping but don't know where to start with purchasing a few basic products to try out at home
  • if you LIKE to stamp but don't have all the tools you need to creat a variety of different cards
  • if you are on a tight budget
  • if you don't have the space to store a lot of supplies
  • if you have a child in your life who likes to craft
  • if you HAVE all the supplies you need but don't always have the time or energy to haul it all out, start cutting paper and creating something from scratch (this describes me ... when the kids want to make cards I often don't WANT to start cutting and prepping something for them!)
  • if you have family or friends who like to stamp and you are looking for a GREAT Christmas present for them

This kit ROCKS!!!

OK ... enough build up ... wanna see what you get ... $55 worth of crardmaking joy for the CRAZY LOW PRICE of $36.95???*  (drum roll please ...)

* plus s/h/gst)

I introduce to you the Everyday Occasions Kit (woo hoo!  ... fist pumping, whistling and applause are sounding in the background ... feel free to say *ooooo ... ahhhhh* ... and/or squeal!)


OK ... so the picture doesn't do it justice *lol* ... see the attached flyer for a FULL picture of everything that comes in this kit ... as well as 20 card samples!


  • Cardstock and envelopes for 20 cards ... 20 CARDS!!!!!!
  • Twine, buttons, and clips
  • Full-color Tips & Tricks brochure
  • A cool, storable, giftable box to keep them in or give them away in
  • Die-cut paper embellishments
  • Stampin' Spots (mini ink pads)
  • Seven-piece Occasions Stamp Set & clear block
  • **notice that adhesive and scissors are NOT included in the kit ... so I lied a little ... it doesn't have EVERYTHING you need ... but I think everyone has a glue stick (or tape) and a pair of scissors lying around (and if you don't I know a great Stampin' Up! Demonstrator who can hook you up with some *lol*)

You can make cards for All Occasions (... hence the name *lol*).  The stamps in the set have these sentiments:

  • Happy Birthday
  • Congratulations
  • Love
  • Thinking of You
  • Thank You
  • For You
  • and one more ... that I can't quite make out on the flyer ...but it looks like a "Made for you" stamp for the back of your cards

Yes.  This kit was announces Friday morning. Bring on a cold, rainy Sunday - Mamma's doin' some crafting!!

I am placing an order in the next 2 weeks  - drop me a line if you would like to scoop up one of the AWESOME kits!!!

That's it for this e-mail.  I was planning on telling you about a new club I'm starting ... but I'll do that under a seperate e-mail ... stay tuned for that!  Until then - have a stampy day!!

Gorgeous Grunge meets Halloween Hello

Well I received some new goodies from Stampin’ Up! today.  Can you say it felt like Christmas here in my house!  What can I say I love this company, I really do and the creative juices were flowing around here.

I ordered the Gorgeous Grunge and Halloween Hello stamp sets, then I found a card that actually used both on Pinterest so I did what every crafter does and cased it—well pretty close…take a look…grunge

My daughters loved it and thought it necessary to play with these stamp sets too.  This card is sitting on my new Stampin’ Trimmer that I bought and loooove!

I also had to get this cool Strawberry Slush jacket as well……well….just because I had to have it.  Mwaaaa Mwaaaaa

new jacket

Sorry about the bad hair day Sad smile  Oh well maybe tomorrow.  Which by the way I am going to do a Christmas card version with the Gorgeous Grunge too!!!

Well ladies, I hope you have a Boo Ya kind of day!!!!

Betsy’s Blossom is in Bloom!

Wow, what a week this has been.  I don’t know about you but you can tell the kids are back in school; they have gotten sick with the flu and has passed it around our house.  Apparently we are not the only ones, my good friend and upline, Tamara, her daughter is sick too!

Also, I have been busy prepping for classes and selling my retired stuff (to get some cool new Stampin’ Up! stuff, LOL).  Anyhow I wanted to share with you a few of the cards we are doing tonight in my technique class.

I wanted to showcase the versatility of our stamp sets, and by far, this stamp set seems to be the most popular so far.  Therefore you can use it for more than just one card.  Take a look:

I love these cards and as you can see you can do so much with this stamp set!  Have an awesome day and enjoy the extra summer time this weekend!

Boo ya baby!

Virtual Garage Sale

Happy Monday,

Well one tiring weekend finished, yet fun, it is time for me to get back to business.  I have finished my workout for the day, house is clean and my daughter willing to make supper this is a good day too! 

As you know I just recently got back into the business and there have been some major changes with the new color refresh that Stampin’ Up! Came out with in July.  I need to raise some funds to help pay for that and it might be a good idea to get some more catalogues as I’m out.  LOL

So instead of you coming to my house for the garage sale I thought I would have a virtual one instead.  I have taken pictures with the prices attached.  It is first come first serve via email.  I can only take cash, cheques, or email money transfers for them.  If your coming to my technique classes Wednesday morning or Friday night I can drop them off too you.  Let me know.

If I have enough left over maybe I will get a new stamp set.  Let me know which stamp set you would like to see at my next technique class. (By the way I’m all for the ‘Gorgeous Grunge’)  The most popular will be bought.

Thanks for your support ladies!

Boo ya baby!!!

A Wedding to Remember!

So yesterday two dear friends of mine finally got married and it was a beautiful wedding.  But can you say “oh my sore body!”  Mind you with all the squats I had been doing and working out I was not as sore today as my kids!!!!  However, they were up there for every dance.  LOL and it was nice to get dressed up as a family…

family 2013

One thing that was totally Boo ya awesome, was they had a photo booth there!!!!  It was an absolute hit!!!  It made two copies where you could keep one and the other went into a book for the Bride and Groom!  Of course you could add notes and hints for them.  I think that was genius!!!!us2us

Well I am the worst procrastinator ever, there should be 12 step program for that mwaaa mwaaaa, I finally got to there card in the morning.  I tried a new technique called ghosting which I think is fun.  Check it out

wedding card

While using the pansy punch, I really like how it turned out.  Best punch ever!!!!!  Teeny Tiny Wishes, my all time favourite go to stamp set. Well I’m off to see some Club Members, then home and back to bed (I hope).

I hope all of you have a BOO YA kind of day!

Envelope Punch Board

Oh man the weather here is deceiving!  It’s hotter than heck but almost all of the leaves have turned yellow, a lot of those said leaves are falling, and I see flocks of birds heading south!!  Seriously, winter so soon—it’s just not fair!!!

Anyhow, I just popped in to share the video for the AMAZING new tool that everyone NEEDS to have - no seriously - you NEED IT!!!  Watch the video and then let me know if you can resist it - betcha can't!!!

Now I am off to make supper for the fam and start designing a card for a wedding we are going to on Saturday!  All I can say is that I am still so freakin’ excited that the kids are BACK TO SCHOOL!!!

Boo ya baby!

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Thank God the kids are back to school!

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am most certainly grateful the kids have gone back!  It was great to see many familiar faces as I walked my daughter to school.  It was like old home week when we saw fellow students and teachers all eager to start the school year.  I am running a little behind today so it will be tomorrow that the teachers get their cards.  Maybe I should send “Deepest Sympathies” cards instead, mwaaaa mwaaaaa.  I’m just kidding!

Yesterday I showcased a card I made for my daughter but I am going to show you how versatile a layout can be.  Take a look:



As you can see, same layout, same colors, different saying, but two totally different cards.  Kewl hey!


Boo ya baby!  Have a great day!

Happy 13th Birthday Paige

My baby girl turned 13 today so while she's in the pool swimming with her sister before we go to her birthday dinner, I thought I would share this card with you!

It really is very simple using the delicate doilies stamp set from SU and the polka dot embossing envelope. I think she's going to like it!

I must say I am really digging the new in colors this year too!  Now if they could make them smell as good as their names might suggest!  Boo ya baby!  Have a good one!  (Note to self:  don't try to blog from my phone. Ha ha)
