Swirly Birds and Thoughtful Banners- Fancy Friday Blog Hop



Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by for the May 2016 edition of the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Today is all about the THANK YOUs! 

This new Swirly Bird set along with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, is adorable!! I have been saying we needed a die like this and I am over the moon to see this set in the new catalog! I used new In Colors here as well- Flirty Flaming and Dapper Denim. 


As you can see, I piled up all kinds of things here. I stamped several of the images and then added in some of the scribble dicuts. Then, I added a Kraft banner, a little bird and his nest (you can barely even see it!) and some Burlap Ribbon. Lastly, I added the sentiment, from the Thoughtful Banners set.

I even fancied up the inside! Make sure to check out my list of supplies below to see the supplies I used. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to hop along to Mercedes blog!

Badges and Banners


 Hello everyone! When this post goes live, I will be in the Mediterranean Sea with all the other Grand Vacation achievers! I can't believe it!!! 

Today, I am sharing my swap for the trip. I just love the new set I got at On Stage called Badges and Banners. There is also a coordinating punch, although I don't have it yet. 
I really love this color combo too. It's Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder and Pool Party. It's so fun! I used the new Layering Squares and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. I can't get enough of those scribbles! 

The sentiment in this set can also be punched out with the Duet Banner Punch! Don't you love when there is a coordinating punch!? I sure do!

Thanks for stopping by today! Check back tomorrow as I finally give you a tour of my new Craft Studio!!

New Product Shares and my June 2016 Calendar

Beginning in June is my new In Color Club. This is for all of you who want to stock up on all five of the new In Colors but need to spread the cost out a little. 


Each month, you will receive: 
1 pack of cardstock (24 sheets), 1 pack of Ruched Ribbon, 1 ink pad,
 1 reinker, 1 marker, 1 sheet of In Color Enamel Sheets, and a
hand stamped card featuring your in color of the month
In your last month’s package, you will get 5 6’X12” pieces of the 
In Color Envelope paper and 10 6" X 12" pieces of the DSP for free.
Cost: $35 plus $6 priority shipping every month June-Oct. 
Your credit card will be charged the first week of each of the five months. 
I can also bill you through Pay Pal each month. 

2016 Product Shares
What is a Product Share? It's a great way to get a little bit of all the new ribbon or paper. I cut the bolts of ribbon in 1 yard lengths and you get 1 yard of each color. For the paper, I divide the packs by four people, so each person gets a half sheet of each pattern. It's a great way to figure out which ones you like the most and want to invest in. 

I can't show you all the  pictures yet, because I don't have the product yet! I do have the In Color Ribbon, so the picture above can kind of help you wrap your head around what a share is! 

In Color Ribbon Share
$12 plus shipping*
This share includes both the 15-17 Mini Striped In Color Ribbon and 16-18 In Color Ruched Ribbon. You will receive 1 yard of each, totaling in 10 yards. 

New Ribbon and Trim Share
$14 plus shipping*
This share includes all the other new ribbon from the catalog. It is a total of 12 yards. Included are the 1/4" Natural Ribbon, 3/8" Stitched Ribbon, 1/8" Stitched Ribbon, 3/8" Sheer Ribbon, 5/8" Burlap Ribbon, Pom Pom Trim and Lace Trim

Both Ribbon Shares
$24 plus shipping*
Get both the above  shares at a discount! 

Designer Series Paper Share
$43 plus shipping*
This share will give you a sheet of every new pattern in the DSP packs, stacks and Envelope Paper! This share will get you 74 half sheets (6"x 12"), 36 6" X 6" sheets and 4 quarter (3" x 12") sheets! Wow!  

Shipping Cost 

Paper Shares will need to be shipped in Flat Rate Boxes to protect them and assure they arrive safely. That cost is $13.45. Add in the ribbon shares to this box for no additional shipping charge! 
1 Ribbon Share- $2 shipping
2 Ribbon Share- $5 shipping


Please Remember:
  1. I will be out of the country from May 20-May 30th. Go ahead and email me, but know I most likely won't confirm until after the 30th.
  2. It takes a few weeks to get your share. I don't order the product until a group os full (usually 4-6 people.) Then, it takes a week to arrive to me, and sometimes up to another week for me to cut, sort, pack and ship. Please be patient. I will do them as quickly as I can! :-) 
Note: I will be out of the country May 20-30.

Save the date! My annual Catalog Kick Off Party and BOGO sale is June 4th form 10am-1pm. Stop by to see lots of new products, make a few projects and shop my BOGO sale! A BOGO sale means that you will get free merchandise from the new catalog equaling the amount you purchase from the retired selection!This is also your chance to pick up your new catalog, sign up for clubs and ribbon/paper shares and see the new In Colors.  RSVP is required.
