Stamp and Scrapbook Expo is Today!

Tune in around 11:20am central time to watch my segment. I’ll be assembling my project as intended and then showing more ideas using the Snowflake Splendor Suite. Links for tuning in are below.

I am trying to reach new paper crafters that are avid, casual or waiting to experience something new and don’t know paper crafting is their new hobby:) Maybe you have some friends like this? Can you help me by spreading the word of what I offer? See the image below for sharing possibilities. Subscribing to my Youtube channel and blog helps too:)

Thank You So Very Much

I had wanted to do a Facebook Live yesterday but it kept getting moved to lowered on the to do list. Today, I decided to film early so the same thing would not happen. I created this paper rosette to decorate a gusseted bag during the video.

After filming, I decided I did not like the craft cardboard on the back side. So covered it with calypso coral cardstock from my scrap basket.

The sentiment seems appropriate to thank all those that ordered during the flash sale that was yesterday and today.

In case you need some crafting company over the next few days, here is the assembly video and craft along with me!

Hope you have a nice holiday filled with your favorite things. Me, I have sushi on the menu complete with ginger that is pickling overnight. I decided that this is a year for trying new things, so let’s make a fun meal. Besides, cornish hen was made last week and that is almost like a turkey.

Catch you on the other side for my Black Friday Virtual Extravaganza!

12 Dies of Christmas

I am excited to announce my next offering for Kits in the Mail! It’s the 12 Dies of Christmas with each of the 12 kits featuring a different die cutting and coordinating stamp set from the annual or fall catalogs. The how to videos will be shared via Youtube links. So you can work at your own pace, savoring each kit for a once a day treat or having a marathon crafting session.

Included are 2 Zoom Open Houses on Friday, December 18th, 9:30-11am and 6:30-8pm. Stop in to share what you have created with your kits. Chat with other paper crafters across the USA. See a stamping demonstration too.

This will be somewhat of a mystery stamping experience for you. I am keeping the designs a secret, hoping you like the surprises I carefully tuck in your kits. Maybe this is your new stamping experience for the month?

You will need your own stamp sets, die sets, ink pads and adhesives to complete the kits. I will be including large pieces of papers to be used on the stamped and die cut pieces because most dies need stamping and then die cutting for a perfect look. Per Stampin’ Up! policy, stamped images can not be included in kits. The large sheets of papers are being included in case you don’t have exactly the dies I am using in a design. Hopefully you have something similar. In addition, ribbons and embellishments will be generous so you will probably have extra to use on additional projects.

At the time of writing this blog post, I am planning on using the following dies and coordinating stamp sets:

Celebration Labels dies and Celebration Tidings stamp set

Dino dies and Dino Days stamp set

Forever Flourishing dies and Forever Fern stamp set

Gathered Leaves dies and Gather Together stamp set

Halloween Magic dies and Hallows Night Magic stamp set

In the Woods dies and Winter Woods stamp set

Love You More Than dies and Nothing’s Better Than stamp set

Nature’s Roots dies and Rooted in Nature stamp set

Pets dies and Pampered Pets stamp set

Stitched Leaves dies and Love of Leaves stamp set

Sunflower dies and Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set

World Map dies and Beautiful World stamp set

Your 12 Dies of Christmas Kits in the Mail Box includes: 12 paper crafting kits, 12 Youtube assembly videos, 2 Zoom Rooms and USPS priority rate shipping.

Orders can be placed by clicking the Contact button at the top of my blog and requesting the 12 Dies of Christmas Kits in the Mail Box. Please let me know the email address to send the $35 PayPal invoice and what the mailing address is to ship the kits to. I will email the links to the Youtube assembly videos and Zoom Rooms.

I hope you enjoy your 12 Dies of Christmas Kits in the Mail Mystery Stamping Experience!

Sugar Cookie Social

I look forward to hosting my Sugar Cookie Social in December so I can share my ugly sweater sugar cookies! The cookie cutter is my Mom’s so would bake a batch with her. She also has all the sprinkles:)

This year, I’ll be hosting my event via zoom. I’ll mail make and take packets with a few paper crafting kits. Then join in during one of my zoom calls to assemble them with my instruction and see what everyone else is creating using the kit contents and their supplies. The format is kind of a mystery stamping adventure too since I won’t share the designs prior to the socials.

How do you get an invitation to the event? If you have placed a product order greater than $50 (excluding shipping and tax) through my online store this year, I will automatically mail you a packet. Not sure if you placed a qualifying order with me? Click the Contact button on my blog and ask I check for you. OR…place a $50 or more order (excluding shipping and tax) on November 24th during the Merry and Bright Flash sale (details for that sale by clicking here) using host code MZXJJXH4 and that order will qualify you to receive a Sugar Cookie Social packet.

Zoom calls are Wednesday, December 9th, 9:30-11am and 6:30-8pm central time. Zoom call links will be emailed to you. Jump on the call time that works for you.

Last, let’s share our favorite, sweet, holiday treats during the call. Have it handy so you can show it on camera. It will be fun to see what cookies we like and what drinks we enjoy. Maybe next year we will be back to sharing my ugly sweater cookies in person:)

Looking forward to stamping with you then!
