Sale-a-Bration Ending, April beginnings

At midnight tonight, this year’s Sale-a-Bration comes to an end! If you have that last minute item that you were thinking of getting, make sure you place your order in time. A couple items that have been on back order (the Butterfly Gala suite, as well as the Butterfly Duet punch) are available again.

The new catalog comes out in a couple months, so soon we will know which items from THIS year’s catalog will be retiring, other than the 2017-2019 InColor suite. If there are items from that suite that you absolutely love (such as Fresh Fig or Powder Pink!), order them now before they run out, because once that happens, those colors are gone for good.

Coming up next month, a new Paper Pumpkin kit with one of Stampin’ UP’s beautiful Distinktive stamp sets, which is a photo realistic style of image, and a new monthly class by mail. I will also be opening up spots on my calendar for workshops, so if you live nearby and are interested in hosting one, please let me know!

Check back later this week to see what April’s Class by Mail will be, when you can sign up for workshops, an d for other great stuff happening throughout the month.

As always, stay creatively stamping!


Extra Stamp Set With March Paper Pumpkin!

March Paper Pumpkin Birthday Kit

Today is the last day to place your order for the March Paper Pumpkin Kit! This special birthday celebration kit will have 2 stamp sets instead of one! These kits come complete with everything you need to complete each monthly themed project, and at a great price, from the cardstock and ink to the accessories! This month’s kit will feature 8 full-sized mailable cards, and will coordinate with
Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade…some of my favorite colors! I absolutely LOVE pairing Basic Black with any of those colors because using Basic Black as a background just makes those colors just POP!

With Paper Pumpkin, you can chose to order 1 month, or pick and chose which month you’d like to purchase. During Sale-a-Bration, if you chose a prepaid subscription of at least 3 months, you’ll earn exclusive free products that are available only during Sale-a-bration time! Plus you can use those prepaid credits for whichever months you prefer to receive; they don’t have to be used consecutively.

If you were to purchase all the supplies that come in a Paper Pumpkin kit, you would easily spend more than the $20/box (plus shipping) for the materials. These kits are a great way for beginners to start their collections, for gift giving, or for quick projects to take along with you when you want something to do when you’re not at your crafting table. Once you receive your first kit, you’ll see why I absolutely love my Paper Pumpkin kits. Once a month, I even have friends who are interested get together to make alternate projects with the supplies in each month’s kit.

If you are interested in Paper Pumpkin kits, either March or future months, click here to head on over to my Paper Pumpkin site so you can sign up. If you have any questions, please contact me and I’ll be happy to answer them! Remember today is the last day to subscribe for March’s special Birthday Paper Pumpkin kit, so don’t miss out on this special kit. Hope to see you at one of my future Paper Pumpkin get togethers!

As always, stay creatively stamping!


March Class by Mail

Thank you for loving my card of the month classes. Here is March’s class, and I hope you love it too!!

Beauty Abounds Cling

If you are not sure what my monthly class is, here is a recap. My Christmas Card of the Month Classes by Mail have been popular, so I’ve decided to do something throughout the year for other occasions…a monthly Card of the Month Class by Mail that focuses on a different theme for each month or season.

Please note: this is not a club where you join for all 12 months. You can do one month or two, or all 12 months, or skip around depending on what suits your creative fancy…it’s totally up to you and your needs.

These classes are a great way to get your cards done each month to use throughout the year for friends and family, but also are great make-n-take projects for demonstrator classes as well. Every month you will make 10 cards (cards will vary slightly due to the designer paper used in the projects but the layout for each card will be identical), while each month will be a different theme. The class fees are due to me no later than March 15, or while supplies last.

Please note: the class fee has changed due to the postal rate increase. The Card of the Month Class by Mail is now $25.00 per month. This will include one completed card for you to follow along with, plus supplies for 10 matching cards (designer series paper may differ per card, so you will have a variety – but card layout is the same) with envelopes mailed to you by priority mail.

You will use your own inks and stamps from home (you can tweak the card with what you have at home), so nothing will be stamped on your supplies.  Any Big Shot or punched pieces will be done for you and in your kit.

The stamp set we will be using this month is Beauty Abounds (see picture above). You can order it with your class fee for an extra $23.00 cling #148726 (you save tax and shipping that way), or you can order it through my online store along with anything else you may want to order. Note: This is a stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Occasions catalog, so a $50 purchase will earn the matching designer series paper, or another beautiful item from the catalog. Please let me know if you need the stamp set or if it’s already in your collection when you sign up for my class.

Should my monthly Card of the Month Class by Mail be up your creative alley, let me know and I will email you a PayPal link.

Please email me right away if you need more details on this as well as to get the PayPal links.

Class packets will be mailed the week of March 25.  I can only ship within the US, thanks for understanding.

If you have any questions, please let me know. You can email me at, contact me using the “contact” button at the top of my blog, or you can call/text me at 828-748-6678.

As always, stay creatively stamping!
