June thank you treats and bonus deals you don't want to miss

Good morning!  I have another quick and easy project to share with you today.  I make little thank you gifts to tuck into everyone's orders each month and this is what I made this month. 

I'm always looking for simple ideas because I have to make anywhere between 40 and 60 each month.  These came together in a snap using the cute A Whole Lot of Lovely hostess set. 

They are those little Ghirardelli chocolates wrapped in Cherry on Top dsp and then with a couple stamped images.  And the saying is perfect - all my customers are fabulous and I love to give them little treats each month to show them how much they are appreciated!


If you're looking for a great deal - be sure to check out the clearance rack, which was just updated today and the bonus weekly deals!

Right now is the perfect time to enjoy more savings, because June 30th to August 3rd, there are MORE items in the Clearance Rack and Weekly Deals. That means you can save up to 30% on even more Weekly Deals, or up to 60% on extra items in the Clearance Rack. You’ll want to hurry though, because Weekly Deals discounts are available in limited quantities before the items return to retail prices.

Have a creative day!

English Garden DSP - not just for girls!

I am not a flowery person.  I rarely buy floral papers and only own a few stamps with flowers.  That's just not me.  So when we received the English Garden DSP as a gift in Hawaii, although grateful - to receive anything for free is wonderful - I set it aside.  When I got home I opened the package and there are 2 of the floral prints that are nice but the back of the paper I LOVE!!!  It is just neutral patterns in a great color scheme.  They make for perfect patterns for more masculine layouts!

Ironically enough, English Garden was the paper pack that I first pulled out when I created this layout of my boys. 

This is a great layout to use up all those strips of paper you always end up with.  Lots of small strips create the backdrop to the photo.  A few punched pieces - the chevron border and the half circles.  Then I added a bit of faux stitching.  I really need to find a home for my sewing machine so that I can do some real stitching on my layouts.  But until then faux stitching it will be.

Up for a little challenge? This weekend, I challenge you to pull out a paper pack that you haven't used in a while and create something with it! It doesn't have to be a full layout - just anything you have time for.  Just get crafty for a few minutes this weekend - it'll do you good.

Watercoloring on shimmer white cardstock

I apologize for the lack of posting, as school winds down, things are a little more laid back at home and I'm not spending as much time downstairs working.  My plans are to scale back over the summer to probably 3 or 4 posts per week instead of the usual 6 posts.  But don't worry, I'll still have lots of inspiration for you.  I've got lots of things planned;)

Today's card was CASEd from a card Teneale Williams made.  I loved it - well I love everything she makes really.  She has an amazing eye and talent for papercrafting.  I knew that you could watercolor on our shimmer white cardstock but I had never tried it so when I saw this card, I knew it was time.  It works beautifully!

It's hard to see the shimmer in the photo. The image is stamped in VersaMark and then embossed with clear powder and then I just colored it in using an Aqua Painter and Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive ink.  Love it!

Hope you have a creative day!

Your chance to win a $200 Stampin' Up! shopping spree

Are you a goal setter?  For those of you who know me well, you know that I believe in setting goals and working hard to achieve them.  However, on occasion I do fall a bit short and this is one of those occasions.  We are coming to the end of the Stampin' Up! year and I am so close to achieving one last goal but I can't do it all on my own.  So this is my plea for help and a chance for you to win a $200 shopping spree! 

With a new catalogue, I know many of you have long wish lists.  If you are in a position to place an order, or plan on attending an upcoming class, check out how you can win a $200 shopping spree!

Here's how you can be entered:
  • 1 entry for EVERY $50 (before shipping & GST) you spend between June 19 and 26th, 2015 - use hostess code DPV7KJW9 if ordering online, or send me your order by email.  Note if your order is over $200 - don't use the hostess code because you will receive hostess rewards! But don't worry you'll still be entered in the draw - actually - you'd get 4 entries!
  • 1 entry if you register and prepay, prior to June 26th, for one or more of the following summer classes: Hello Life Lots of Cards;  Hello Life Treats & Tags or the Tin of Cards class (all details below)!  Register for all 3 and you get 3 entries!
