Product List

In With the NEW - New Catalog, New Products, New Promotion!

Today's the big day! The new annual catalog is now live, and it's filled with beautiful new products, AND there's an awesome Host Promotion, to boot! When you place a qualifying order, you'll receive an extra $25 in Stampin' Rewards to spend on anything in the catalog (and that includes the current mini). What's not to love about that?!

I haven't forgotten that it's also Tutorial Tuesday - that post is coming later. I've been busy adding the link to the new catty (on the left sidebar), placing MY order for new stamping goodies (and yes, you bet I got that extra $25, LOL), and making this card to share. Oh, and running to the barn between storms to deal with the chickens. Moved my car in there, too, because we are expecting severe weather in a few hours.

This card was made using the Flowers of Friendship cling stamp set and the Scalloped Contours Dies. The background was made with Blending Brushes and all the new In Colors, except Evening Evergreen.

I'll be back later with the Tuesday tutorial!

Out With the Old....

Today is the last day to order from the 2020-2021 annual catalog! Make sure you don't miss out on your wish list items that are retiring. And, please use the current host code YZNMB9JY when you order (if it's under $150), so I can continue to send monthly thank you gifts! I love sending out goodies to show my awesome stampers how much I appreciate them. It might be a pack of embellishments, or adhesives, or a tool....you just never know!
