Leftovers Are Delicious Facebook Live & You Tube Live Event Today

So I invite you to join me today and help me put this mess together to create something beautiful to share with someone.

New Sale A Bration Items – Simple 2 Step Up

Today I wanted to show case one of the new Stampin’ UP! stamp sets from the 2nd Sale A Bration release.

I created 3 very simple cards to show off how you can easily create and make stuff with very little supplies.


You may notice that I am sharing 5 in colors.  These in colors are the 2016 – 2018 Stampin’ UP! In Colors, that means ALL 5 of these colors will be going away soon.

Each year I start warning people, around this time in fact, that these colors will sell out and so will their reinkers. SUPER FAST.  I mean in hours.  Some people, wise people, listen to me!  HAHA!  They buy their reinkers or the colors they love that the didn’t purchase yet, and they are happy campers.

Then there’s the other people.  These people choose to ignore my warnings.  They think I’m all fluff and blowin’ smoke, I guess. They don’t buy them NOW before they are on the retiring list and you know what happens.  They end up with ink pads that have no reinkers,  Or worse yet, they end up without ink pads of colors they REALLY wanted.

All the new Sale A Bration items available today are listed here.  You can get these items FREE with a minimum $50 or $100 order.

2016-2018 Retiring In Colors are going away soon!  Purchase yours before they hit the retiring list and are gone for good.

The Basics: Card Making Measurements

A few weeks ago I shared that I would periodically be sharing basic tips and tricks for card making.

The first video I did was focused on using clear mount stamps.  Click HERE to see that video and blog post.

Today’s video focuses on using standard measurements for your card making.  I should point out that these measurements are focused on the US Imperial measuring system.

I felt like it was important to share a little pinnable photo with some measurements for you.

Super happy to have made this video for you and I hope you find it useful!  If you have any questions please let me know.
