Fancy Friday- Trim the Tree and Mingle All The Way

Welcome to Fancy Friday!


This month, we decided to focus on Designer Series Paper!! Easy!! It's my crafting drug... I have a problem, I LOVE it and can never have enough! 


For my card, I used the Trim the Tree DSP. Love, love, love this stack! It's traditional Christmas colors, which is always my preference. Real Red and Garden Green! Doesn't get more traditional than that! And did you see that wooden snowflake? It's leftover from the Many Merry Stars Kit!! The stamp I used is from a set with the same name Mingle All The Way. I also used Cherry Cobbler ribbon and Linen Thread. 

This month, we are all giving away DSP! Leave a comment on my blog and I will pick one person next Friday as the winner of an entire stack of Trim the Tree DSP Stack!! Make sure you leave me a comment so you can be entered to win! 



Ok, normally, you hop to my friend Jane Lee! But she is really sick this week, so we are letting her rest and going her the week off. :-) So, you are off to another friend of mine Jeanna!

Christmas Curvy Keepsake Box

Hey everybody! 

Do you have the Curvy Keepsake Box? I've used mine so much already I think it's about to break in half!! LOL! These framelits are so fun to use. And so, SO easy to put together! Here is another version I did for this coming week's craft sale.

It's made out of Basic Black Cardstock. The stamp is from the Mingle all the Way set. I stamped it in Versamark ink and embossed it with Whisper White embossing powder. I added "stitching lines" with my Sig White Uniball Pen.
The paper mint was created with the Starburst Sayings stamp set. Last, the snowflake is from the Snowflake Card Framelit set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Super Saturday Recap

Hello and Happy Monday everyone! (Can Monday be happy?? LOL!)
I am tiring up all the loose ends from this past weekend's AWESOME Super Saturday.
It truly was awesome and I feel SO blessed to have such fun, caring and kind customers/friends in my life. This kind of event can be stressful and difficult for a Demonstrator. But, not for me. I loved spending the day with some of my customers and I loved prepping for it. I truly felt like a kid on Christmas morning waiting for everything to get started! 

I made sure to have lots of "eye candy" for everyone to look at. Christmas was the theme for the classes, so Christmas was the theme for the displays. It's time to really start planning all of our Christmas crafting! 

I also brought sign ups for the next big event! It's structured the same and I have details at the bottom of this post! 

I've had lots of questions about these trees that I posted last week. So, be looking for a video about them soon! 

I found a great stand for my Star Wreath. (Pretend you don't see the price tag still on it!!!) 

This Countdown to Christmas Tree is so fun! This will be one of the options at November's Crop. 

A little tree was a great way to show off all the tags I created for each class. Every participant got a special Christmas tag in each of their class kits. I had lots of fun making them all! 


I offered four classes on Super Saturday. Participants could take as many as they wanted. Each class was packed up in a nice little kit along with their special tag. 

One of the most fun parts was the raffle! I had lots of brand new holiday products to raffle off. 

Each of my local participants also received a small goody bag. 


Each class had a "Station" where the ink and samples were located. The ladies would get their class kit and head over  to their station to get to work. 

My most popular of the four classes offered? The Festival of Trees Stamp a Stack for sure!! :-)

And, for all of you wonderful ladies who ordered your kits "to go" can be watching your mailboxes! They all went out yesterday! 

Ok, so my next event is a PJ Party/Crop!

Space is limited!! If you are in the San Antonio area and want to attend, please make sure you email me soon! 
If you want any of these to go, please email me. I am still ironing out the details for each one, but I can put you on the list in the meantime. Pricing will be different because your class won't include the "crop" fee which the prices already reflect. But, it will need shipping and prep fees. So, stay tuned for specific details on that! 
OK everybody, thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

Typeset Christmas Trees

Happy Friday everyone!

Tomorrow is my big Super Saturday event and I am spending today making all the final touches and details come together.  I am so excited to get it all set up and for the ladies to arrive!

 I have spent a lot of time creating some pretty display items for all the attendees to get inspiration from. One of them, is this sweet little trio of paper trees. Now, don't think I dreamed these babies up myself. They come straight from Stampin' Success, our Stampin  Up Demo exclusive magazine. This magazine comes out every other month and is FULL of really pretty things along with directions and details so you can make them too. Stampin' up really makes being a Demo fun and easy! 


 The trees were created using the Typeset DSP. 



I used the Skinny Mini alphabet to create the little banner. Do you see the TINY little stars?? Aren't they cute? They are smaller than a glue dot! They were made with the Star Confetti Punch. 


The pots were created with gold embossing powder! 
Who knew!?!? Yea, so very cool! 


Now, if you are on my mailing list, then you heard about my 
 Holiday Punch Card yesterday!  
This is a great way to get more bang for you buck. Think gift giving for your Christmas list ( card kits are the PERFECT gift!) and place your order online. You will earn yourself a free stamp set!

Purchase $200 in SU products between now and December 31 and  I will gift you with a photopolymer stamp set of your choice! Purchase all at once or a few orders at a time.
