Say goodbye to 2013 and the Holiday Catalog!

I have some sad news and some good news... 

The sad news:  The Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog is only good until January 2.  You can get the free catalog PDF download or shop the holiday products right here in my store.

These are the items from the holiday catalog that will be carried over and available after January 2 (download PDF list).  Anything not on the list may be retired...there's a chance it could show up in the new annual catalog, but if you fell in love with those versatile Expressions Thinlit dies, or the classy Pretty Print embossing folder, or the festive patterned papers, or any of the non-carryover stamps, get your order in by Thursday!

The good news is the Occasions (spring!) catalog starts up on January 2nd, so you can email me at and I'll get one in the mail to you for free, along with the upcoming Sale-a-Bration brochure that starts at the end of January.  Cheer up, ladies, although the holiday season may be ending, the spring catalog (and hopefully spring itself) is just around the corner!   :)

Cyber Monday Sale!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, filled with yummy food and people you're thankful for!
As December starts, the countdown to Christmas begins. To avoid that last-minute stress, book time in your calendar to get prepped in a marathon session whenever you have some time free, or find an hour here or there to get a few things done, and treat your crafty time as a creative escape!  I haven't started my Christmas cards yet, but it will be a fun way to unwind and relax after work over the next few weeks as I stamp.  :)

Birthday card inspiration

Happy Friday!  I'm sharing the birthday card I gave to my sisters for their birthdays yesterday (yes, twins). I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest that used a different color scheme and flower stamps. 

To make this card, I took some scrap paper, punched out different sized circles, and used the paper as a mask.  I then got my sponge daubers inked up in the 3 colors, and filled in the circles onto the white layer.  I added a mix of butterflies in black overlapping the colorful polka dots after they dried.

Try this idea with favorite image stamps and your own color scheme.  I think it would be cute with some blue tones and snowflakes, or purple and orange with some Halloween bats.  :)

Stamps:  Perfectly Penned, and butterflies from  Best of Butterflies and Papillion Potpourri
Color scheme:  Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Pool Party
Other:  The world's best bling for some sparkle

Current hostess code if you order these or other supplies online and want to join my party is MEK2FMWT
