New Holiday Catalog Launch - Sneak Peek

I have been working/playing with new products from the Holiday Catalog getting ready for my New Holiday Catalog Launch.  If you are local make sure you come to my New Catalog Launch this Sunday 8/28/16  from 2pm 4pm floating (drop in at any time). Please RSVP so we can prepare for you. 

It's just too hard to decide what I like most. I may have to say Cookie Cutter Christmas is one of my favorites.  You can see below you can stamp a bear, gingerbread man and not shown is an Eskimo, Santa and a Deer and a punch makes it quick and easy to  make cute, cute stuff.  You are going to want this Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle. Wait there is more, there is also a Cookie Cutter Halloween set that goes with the punch too.  Stop by on Sunday and see some adorable samples we have made for you.

Gingerbread Man Book Mark!

 I've been playing with new stamps and accessories from the new Holiday Catalog.  When I downloaded this photo I thought it almost looked gingerbread men on a cookie sheet. :)

Below is my stash from my first pre-order. That is one of the things I love about being a demonstrator, getting to order new products early.  I can't wait to share them with you at an upcoming class.

Don't forget you have a few more days to order the Thoughtful Branches Set only available in August while supplies last. August 31st last day to order.

This class gives you several ways (seasons) to use the same set as well as the framelits.  I have seen so many samples on Pinterest I just had to make some of them for you. Thank you Mary Fish and Connie Collins for your inspiration. I first fell in love with the part that looks like a hydrangeas featured in another post, then I kept seeing other great cards. Sign up today to reserve your spot.  Contact me at

Thoughtful Branches Welcome to my Team!!

This is a new card using the NEW Thoughtful Branches stamp set and (Welcome Words) a retired set but it is so perfect when you have a new team member. I am sending two of these out this week to my to new team members. I am so excited to have Linda Pierce from Charles City, VA and Karen Patterson from Sebastian, FL on my team. Welcome girls. 

I just love this Thoughtful Branches Set that you can only purchase the month of August.  I was playing around with tags today and came up with this one. The flowers sort of remind me of  lilac's but for the stamp set they are really suppose to be leaves on small trees. Who knew.  I can see some Christmas tree cards with this set too, it is so versatile.

 Last but not least today I am sharing the card that was the prize for my Facebook Stampin Bingo game I have every Tuesday night at 8pm.  Let me know if you want to play (US players only) and I will invite you. This will be going to Wendy Fletcher, in Spotsylvania, VA one of our winners, she requested the Thoughtful Branches Card using one of the IN colors and I used flirty flamingo color.  I usually show the Stampin Bingo Players something I have been working on the week before and sometimes I will have something for them to choose sometimes I choose. The main thing is we all have a fun time.   Email me or facebook message me if you want to play.

See the flyer below and you can click on the image to make it larger.
 For a limited time (August 2- 31), you can get the new exclusive Thoughtful Branches bundle. Plus, if you order in August please use hostess code TYZ7C97R  for extra free items from me!
8/16 - Tues ~Thoughtful Branches Card Class 10-noon If you love hydrangeas a much as I do you will want to take this class.

July NC Demo Blog Hop

July Theme: Favorite Consumable (DSP, Embellishments, Ribbon)

This is a cute class I offered at Sweet Peas a cute shop in Vero Beach earlier this month.   I love this little shop it has everything shabby chic, baskets, clothes, art, crafty things (just about anything you would want).

By looking at my photos I would say my favorite consumable is ribbon.

This is a cute fold over gift tag.   Reminds me on my mama's canning day's of my youth. 

 This was a cute candy holder using the new 2x8 cello bags (I like that it holds larger candy)

This was one of my samples not something we made at the class.  I saw it in the catalog on page 148 and had to make it. 
 Don't forget next time you are in Vero Beach stop by Sweet Peas!!!! This is where I got my inspiration for my courtyard.  I bought the chair for $3 and the chandelier for $5 at the Salvation Army thrift store.

This is what I did with the chair, I love it at my front door.

The chandelier I added solar lights on it and it lights up at night. I love both projects. This photo was with the flash of my phone the next one is without the flash.

So what inspires you!  Don't forget to check out the rest of the NC Demo crew Blog Hop.
