Quilted Paper Mat and Last Day to get on the catalog list

We hosted customers for a special edition of Black Friday presentations in a private Facebook group. Did you join us? All demonstrations, posts about tips and tricks are available for viewing from the comfort of your cozy stamp space. Ask me how to join the group if you missed the live day.

I created a quilted paper mat during one of my presentations in the group. My stack of 1 inch square pattern paper was piling up. So making a quilt square seemed to be the easiest way to reduce the pile and share the fun patterns.

I will be finalizing my order for the Spring and Sale-a-bration brochures this weekend. Make sure you are on the list to receive your copies from me by placing an order as directed below. Click the image below if your order is under $150 so you are linked to host VBFMJN42. (THE IMAGE INCORRECTLY LISTS AN OLD HOST CODE). If your order is over $150, remove the code while in the online store so you can enjoy all the host rewards yourself. Make sure to remain shopping with me if your order is over $150 so I can include you on my catalog list.

Here is a link to the my Youtube video showing how to create the quilted mat and greeting card.

Thanks again for supporting my small business!

Black Friday Woohoo Weekend is over…but…

The presentations for WooHoo Weekend are over…sigh…I hope you enjoyed all the great projects, tips, tricks from the comfort of your cozy stamp space. I know I did!

Here is one of the projects I presented in the group. It’s a pillow box created using the Pillowbox Die set, the Kraft paper and a little bit of mini ruffled ribbon.

There is even a message tucked inside…

If you would like to place an order for these products or any other products you would like to see under your holiday tree, click the image below if your order is under $150 so you are linked to host J2M3RW9E. If your order is over $150, do not use the code so you can enjoy all the host rewards yourself.

If you were active in the group…

If you missed the live presentations, I can still add you to the group since videos and posts are available for viewing after the event is over. Only customers of mine are invited to the group though. Please place an online order as directed above to receive your invitation to join the group.

Here is a link to the Facebook Live video which has been uploaded to my Youtube channel showing how to create the Pretty Pillowbox.

Thanks again for supporting my small business!
