Out with the with the new "Thank You"

Hello friends....I hope that you had a healthy, happy holiday.  I like to get my "Thank You" cards sent out as soon as possible after the holiday so I whipped this up yesterday using up some Stampin' Up! retired Season of Style DSP and I'm giving you a "Sneak Peek" of new Sale-A-Bration product! This card was so easy to duplicate so I made 10 of them lickety-split. 

Can you guess what the the sneak peek is? It's the new Lotus Blossom Stamp Set, and it's free with a $50.00 Stampin Up! product purchase beginning January 6th! 

The Sale-A-Bration period begins January 6th and ends March 31, 2015. I will be hosting my 1st Annual Sale of Retired SU Products and the Sale-A-Bration/Occasions Catalog Kick Off on Friday, January 9, 2015 from 11-6pm.

For every retired SU product you purchase you will get to spend that amount in the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. (Hostess credits will not apply with this promotion) Make sure you take advantage of this great deal!

There will be make and takes using new product, drawings for product give-a-aways, yummy treats.... and FUN, FUN, FUN! R.S.V.P. by January 7th for an extra chance to win some free product. Looking forward to seeing you on January 9th!

Grateful For You!

Today I am showing a card that I CASED from Brian King fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Don't you just LOVE monochromatic clean, so easy, so quick. 

To make this card I used 4 cardstock layers,  Blackberry Bliss 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″, Whisper White 4″ x 4″, Blackberry Bliss 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, Whisper White 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″. I used 3 stamped images from the For All Things stamp set all stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink. This color is so rich and when paired with Whisper White it really makes the card POP! This set is quickly becoming one of my favorite sets.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I am grateful for you!

I just signed back on with Stampin' Up! this past week and recieved my demo kit and much to my surprise it contained a Paper Pumpkin Kit! I was elated as I have not had the opportunity to try this relatively new product from Stampin' Up! that was launched last year.

Well, let me tell you... I am hooked!  The kit that I recieved was the February 2014 In The Bag Kit which had all the makings for 5 adorable gift bags. I did add a little twist by bringing in another color, Tangerine Tango, and a small flower stamp from the new Flower Patch stamp set to add a little more pizzaz. I did end up using the retired " Oh, Whale" stamp set as it worked with my theme, but I can only imagine how cute the tag could be utilizing some of the adorable flowers from the new Flower Patch stamp set. Quick and easy...just the way I like it and I hope you like it too.

Don't you just love the cute little clothspins. You can purchase them in a pack of 24 for only $3.95!

This bag will be filled with lots of sweet goodies to welcome my new neighbors across the street. I hope you are all having a great weekend!
