Another Crazy Day

Good morning, Stampers! It is snowing again! I can't believe it. All the schools are closed, and so is my work. DH had to go in, but *I* don't!

I thought I'd share a tiny little thank you note that I made for my newest customer and friend. Hi, Sherri! Hope you are enjoying your new stamps!

I made this cute little 3x3 card to slip into her order, just so she knows that I appreciate her business. I used some of the SAB Good Neighbor paper pad layered onto Bermuda Bay cardstock. I stamped the larges stamp from Three Little Words, and then used the "thanks so much" stamp from the Tiny Tags stamp set to complete the phrase. I punch out the thanks and one Bermuda Bay and one Melon Mambo tag with the new Medium Jewelry Tag punch. I used the paper piercer to make a hole in the 3 tags and threaded some crochet threat through them and attached it to the card. I thought it turned out cute. I hope she liked it. I hope you like it, too. Let me know with a comment.

First Post of the New Year

Hi, Stampers! I am going to try to post more often this year. It is one of my goals for this year. Sale-a-Bration has started! All the new items in the new Occasions Mini catty are available now, too! Just click on the picture of the catty on my sidebar to see all the great new stuff! If you haven't heard of Sale-a-Bration, it is the biggest sale of the year for Stampin' Up! For every $50 in merchandise you order, you get to pick an item from the sale-a-bration book for FREE! What could be better than free stamps and paper? And this year there is a punch! It is the new punch design and it is beautiful! To order, simply go to my website ( and click shop now. It's that easy!

Here are a couple of cards that feature some of the new items. I made them for a swap and since I have received all my cards, I figure everyone has my cards, too. Now I can share without spoiling any surprises. I used the Movers and Shapers Die for the Big Shot for the pink card, along with the Vintage Labels stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catty. The black and vanilla card were made with the I {heart} Hearts stamp set from the Occasions Mini, along with the super yummy Real Red satin ribbon. I don't think you can see the glitter on the hearts, but the patterned ones on the right have glitter. Very sparkly IRL. The punch used along the edge is the free punch in the Sale-a-bration catalog. I told you it was pretty. There is a matching corner punch in the Occasions mini!

Well I guess that's about it for today. Try to stay warm! It's been hard to do here. It was 12 when I left for work this morning and is supposed to be colder tonight! Great weather for staying in and stamping. Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!
