Reindeer Games

Mom was suppose to be helping assemble the punch art but she was MIA looking for holiday decor or the songbook we are suppose to be re-purposing for background paper. So Mr. Kitty was the only one assisting and he is no good at reindeer games!


This is what Mr. Kitty and I were working on.

I spy a kitty paw…do you? Mr. Kitty leaped  onto the table where he is not allowed. I quickly put him back on the step.

The final card which was copied from Linda Parker, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

What I like about this reindeer is that I imagine the notes are slightly off key but sung with joyfulness that no snow storm can dampened the spirit. Sing little one and enjoy the moment.

I have a limited edition run of this card. So here are the supplies we used to create this card so you can create your own chorus. I think I might have to save a few for the scrapbook too.

Good Night from Mr. Kitty and Me!

Happy Birthday Wendy!

It’s my sister’s birthday day. She ordered the quilted Christmas products. So I decided to use these products on her birthday card. Happy Birthday Wendy!

Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop


I am coordinating a Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop. Check back on January 3rd for some great projects to inspire you.

Today I am testing the links.


So our link testing is done but thought I would share what Sale-A-Bration is all about so you can save your holiday gift cash. During Sale-A-Bration, you earn exclusive free products with every qualifying purchase, qualifying host level or joining my Super Awesome Stampers demonstrator team during Sale-A-Bration.

Sale-A-Bration starts on January 3, 2018 and for every $50 you spend, you’ll receive a free Sale-A-Bration product. For anyone who has enjoyed Sale-A-Bration in the past, we have an exciting new announcement for this year. We now have a new reward level as defined below:

  • Spend $50 and receive one free level 1 product.
  • Spend $100 and receive one free level 2 product OR choose two level 1 items.
  • Spend $150 and have the option to choose three level 1 items or one level 1 item and one level 2 item.

When you host a qualifying party (online or in-person) with at least $250 in sales during Sale-A-Bration, you’ll earn $25 more in Stampin’ Rewards! These rewards can even be applied towards a Starter Kit, allowing you to also join and become demonstrators.

In addition to hosting, new demonstrators enjoy a fantastic benefit of joining as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration. The choice of TWO additional stamp sets included in their $99 starter kit—any stamp set, any price. (Excludes bundles and Sale-A-Bration sets.) You get to pick up to $125 of products in your kit but still only pay $99 plus tax. The kit ships for free which save you $12.50!

If you have purchased from me recently should be receiving your Sale-a-bration and spring Occasions catalogs towards the end of December. Get your post it tabs out, there are a lot of new designs I will be adding to my stash. I am sure you will find some goodies too.

Check back on January 3rd when the blog hop goes live. We have lots of stops planned for you!

Stamparatus Reservation on Tuesday

The results are in! The first Stamparatus reservation window reached its maximum number of reservations in just 15 minutes, which provided Stampin’ Up! with some very important information: You LOVE this new stamping tool! We couldn’t be more thrilled; in fact, your response was so amazing that we’ve decided to make some important adjustments to the reservation process.


As was previously announced, the second reservation window will remain open from December 5–30; however, during this reservation period we will take as many orders as we receive (yay!) and not close the window until December 30. So whether the total number of reservations is 100 or 100,000, the window will stay open!

Please note the following changes:

  • Beginning March 19, we will ship Stamparatuses in the order the reservations were received (first in, first out) and continue through the next few months and beyond as product arrives in our warehouse. Because shipment dates are based on manufacturing lead times, not all of the reservations made during the December 5–30 window will ship on March 19 (as was previously announced).
  • In order to accommodate demand, limits have changed as follows: one reservation per customer and one per demonstrator.
  • Because we are not limiting the maximum number of reservations for the second window, we will not offer a third window. This is the last chance for you and your customers to reserve a Stamparatus before it becomes available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Just what is a Stamparatus? Watch this video and then get ready to place your reservation at my online store here on Tuesday, December 5th, starting at 2pm mountain time.

P.S. I’ll have a Stamparatus at my January events that you can try out to create a project with. Contact me to book your party and then get started inviting your friends! I also have the Card Buffet at my house tentatively scheduled for January 12th/13th. Contact me today to reserve your seat at the Card Buffet. Thanks!

Pile o’ Christmas Cheer

It always starts with someone in mind. A person may need cheering up or wishing birthday greetings. This time, I had my senior living communities to design for. What would I gift them for a little Christmas cheer when I visit in December?

12 2 2017 5-001

The package needs to be easily opened and can be reusable. I let people know they can enjoy the treat inside, refill it and re-gift it. It needs to be festive and fun and easy to assemble since I have many to make.

12 2 2017 3-001

So I started gathering piles of supplies I had on hand, designed the favor and then ordered the supplies needed to make about 300. Each resident and staff will receive one. They were a big hit with the first communities I visited yesterday.

12 2 2017 6-00112 2 2017 4-001

If we cross paths in December, I’ll gift you one too. In case we don’t, here is a Youtube video showing how to assemble plus a few other ideas at the end of the video.


Happy Holidays!
