July Kits in the Mail Ready for Ordering!

I have lots of excitement to share this week. Today, I am introducing my July Kits in the Mail. These kits are custom designed by me. I also do all the kit prep work and packaging of shipping boxes.

The July Kits in the Mail includes greeting card designs for a fun angled card, dogs, cats, flower jars, a lake scene and a spray of purple goodness.

Supplies to make 2 each of the 6 designs with envelopes are carefully tucked inside envelopes to make their way safely to your house. There are 12 kits total in the box plus a few surprises. The card in the bottom left is a specialty fold angled card.

Here is a photo of the supplies included in the kit. Please Note: You will need to use your stamps and ink pads from your stash to complete the cards. Also, the only framelit shapes included are the circle shapes. The additional framelits used in the designs require stamping first and die cutting second. Therefore, the die cut shapes on the angle card, the lake scene card and the flower spray card are not included but the cardstock to cut the shapes are included as shown below.

Interested in getting a kit? Super Awesome! The cost is $35 via PayPal and includes USPS Priority Rate shipping. Click “Contact” at the top of my blog to let me know you want to order the July Kits in the Mail. Include the email address to send the PayPal invoice to and what the mailing address is to send the kit to. Porch Pick Ups are available for $28.

I generally ship each Monday for invoices paid by Sunday noon, central time. This kit option is available until July 24th or while supplies last.

Substitutions in pretty items (patterned papers, ribbons and embellishments) may be made so you have a greater variety of design options. Patterned papers are double sided for additional creativity. Thank you for understanding!

How to videos will be shared in my private Facebook group. Please ask to be added to the group when you order your kit. If you need help ordering the supplemental supplies to complete the kits before I get it posted to my blog, click the Contact button and I’ll send you a list. I hope to post this information on my blog next week as well.

Thank you for ordering a July Kits in the Mail!

New video on my Youtube Channel

My business has been taking me in new directions the past few months. I hope you are enjoying the ride with me! One direction is back to creating videos for my Youtube channel. I just posted a new video this morning. Take a look at how to create this Jar of Flowers hand stamped greeting card!

Also, I just closed the host code that was flashed on the screen at the end of the video. Please use host code RE3H2VUJ if you are placing an online order instead. Current host codes are found on the right side of my blog in case advertised codes don’t work. Codes are open for a few weeks so that is why codes advertised in videos or posts may not work. Please click on the Contact button if you have questions about ordering.

Also, Stampin’ Up! has 2 promotions going on right now that are super deals! Shop or host an online party with $250 in sales and receive $25 extra host rewards to spend. New demonstrators receive an extra select bundle in their welcome kit. Full details for both promotions can be found by clicking here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday


I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Debbie McNeill’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I should start keeping track of the number of times I use the Jar of Flowers stamp set and Jar Punch. I am sure it will be the most used set for me. The new Old World Paper embossing folder will need to be misplaced in my stamp room too so I don’t use it on every card;)

Supplies used…I love my Stampin’ Write Markers for quick, saturated coloring. I also used the Many Mates stamp set for the sentiments.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy Held’s blog in Australia and see what fun project she designed.


Here is a list of hoppers in case you get off the trail…

Ink, Stamp and Share Blog Anything Goes


Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fabulous Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. Our theme this month is Anything Goes. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Libby Fen’s blog and her fabulous project.

My vision was to set the focal point against a kitchen back splash created using smoky slate squares. The mason jar is sitting on a paper, wool applique mat. Quick and simple.
