Holiday Catalog Product Shares 2018

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 cut the (12"X12") paper to 6" X 12" pieces and you get one of each pattern. The Glimmer paper comes as 6" X 6" so you will receive 1 full sheet of each color.  It's a great way to figure out which ones you like the most and want to invest in. 
Ribbon Share Holiday 2018

Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured 
Merry Merlot and Copper Reversable

Add the ribbon to the paper share and you won't pay the additional shipping plus you'll earn a free pack of Chicken Wire Elements!

If you purchase both the ribbon and paper share, you only pay $7 for both shipping (already included in the paper price) AND you will receive pack of Chicken Wire Elements for free. 
If you are local, I have included registration options for you that does not include any shipping. 

Please Remember:
It takes several weeks to get your share. I don't order the product until a group is full (paper is 4 people and ribbon is 10.) And, I can't order any of it until September 5th. Then, it takes a week to arrive to me from SU. It will take up to two weeks for me to cut, sort, pack and ship. Please be patient. I will do them as quickly as I can! I will also email you with updated timelines. :-)

Sweet Stampede Blog Hop: Coloring

Hello everybody! Thanks for hopping along today with my wonderful team The Sweet Stampede! Our theme this month is COLORING! I chose to use my Stampin' Blends, which are my favorite coloring tools, along with a new set that will be available in September called Country Home. 

These were actually my team swaps this month. I bought something special while in Alaska to bring home to make a swap out of. 

This stamp set is one of my favorites in the new Holiday Catalog. It's very "Joanna Gains!" We have several sets in the catalog that could qualify as that farmhouse style. I colored the image and then fussy cut it with my Paper Snips! 

And here is the inside. They are Glacial Facials I found in the gift store at the Mendenhall Glacier. Fun!! 

And here they are all spread out ready to swap! 
Be on the lookout for this cute set on September 5th when the catalog goes live. 

Ok, make sure you hop along and give my team a little love today! Thanks for stopping by!

Tutorial Member Blog Hop

Hello everyone! As I told you last week, we've got a new round of Tutorial Bundles starting this month. Today, we're celebrating with a blog hop! We're each showing you a second project we created using the same stamp set we used in our Tutorial Bundle Project. 

By the way, have you checked out the amazing line up of designers this round? 

This month, my Tutorial Bundle project features the Follow Your Dreams Bundle. For me second project, i used it to make thank you tags for those customers who ordered from me during my Alaska trip. I thought the dream catcher was perfect for an "Alaska" themed tag! 

Making beautiful gift tags is a great way to create a small project with a lot of WOW! These use Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight. I did a watercolor wash first, flicked some Poppy Parade ink from my Stampin' Write Marker and then stamped the dream catcher in Early Espresso and the sentiment and feathers in Poppy Parade.

I attached these to packs of product I was mailing each of the customers. Easy but really fun and cute! 

My project in the tutorial bundle uses a different color scheme but still that same beautiful dream catcher. And, it's a 3D project! I provide step by step instructions and photos so you can easily recreate it on your own! 

Are you interested in the Tutorial Bundle? Because it's the beginning go f the six month round, we have a subscription option for those of you who'd love to receive these in your inbox each month. This option is ONLY available in August. Check out the sneak peeks of this month's PDF below.
