Hello Stamping Friends,

Isn’t it beautiful?  Just click on the image to look inside.  There are snowmen and cardinals and a mini curvy keepsake box like you see here on the front, and inside there are Shimmery Crystal Effects, Snow Glitter, White Puff Paint, a Punch for the Snowman and a Moose Punch and ribbon galore and Penguins and…

Okay, enough Karen, let’s just show some examples. 

 

Thanks, Sal, I do get carried away with all the exciting new products.  Did I tell you about the white satiny ribbon with Merry Christmas printed on it and……

ENOUGH all right all ready!  You need to get down to business.

Well!  The catalog starts today and runs through January 2 of 2020.  It will be in my catalog tab if you are ever out and about without a catalog and someone asks you about those cool penguins or …. oops there I go again.  Contact me if you need a catalog.

Through September 30 you can save on Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog:

And for all you Halloween buffs, don’t miss signing up by September 10th for the cool Paper Pumpkin with a spooky box:

Punches Are In / Last Two Days of Sale A Bration

Hello Stamping Friends,

The Butterfly Duet Punch is back!   #148523, $18, or get the bundle #150599 with the punch and stamp set for $35 – just in time for the last hurrah of Sale A Bration.

The cake punch is also back!

Mom always said “all good things must come to an end” as we left the wonderful vacation we had been on – or the swimming pool -or the horseback trip!  Sigh……  We kept the memories and the pictures to remember the fun, but you have so much more;  you can keep stamps and framelits and ribbons and paper to remember our fun time this last three months with Sale A Bration.

You still have time to put in one last order and get one more free product!  Our hostess code is  KTHPFHPP if your order is under $150.

Let’s look at the brochures one last time:

The ribbon was available around March 4th but sold out immediately.

 

And my favorite:

The fun isn’t over – it just takes a new venue!  I am hosting a card class with luncheon on Saturday, April 13, and Tuesday, April 16th.  The cost is $20 and we will make 4 specialty cards with product from the Occasions catalog which runs through June 3.  RSVP by April 8th (or sooner)!  You can text, email or click on the calendar on the right side of this blog and the calendar will link you to the Events page at the Stampin’ Up! website where there is a little box for sending me an RSVP.

Let me pick some of my favorite samples from wonderful Stampin’ Up! demonstrators:

Angie Mckenzie used the Country Floral Embossing folder and a sort of spotlight technique:

Brian King used the Botanical Butterfly DSP which has black and white on one side and butterflies on the other:

 

From “Priscillastamps.blogspot.com”  comes part III of the Lovely Lattice!  I want to visit her blog and find parts 1 and II don’t you?  Stampin’ Up! is encouraging demonstrators to do one simple card for beginners, one for intermediate stampers and one for advanced. This would be the advanced card!

This gorgeous Lasting Lily card comes to us from Frenchie’s Team!  She also used the Country Floral embossing folder.  Her YouTube channel is a definite subscription must!

 

Thank you, Angie, Brian, Priscilla and Frenchie!   You are an inspiration to all of us.

Our hostess code is  KTHPFHPP.    Click on little SAL waving from the computer to go to the online store –   hurry –  time is of the essence!!

SAL,   (Start A Love of stamping!)

Annual Catalog for June 2018-May 2019

Hello Stamping Friends,

The new catalog is active!  We are celebrating 30 years of loving what we do and sharing what we love as we help you enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments…making a difference in your life and in lives worldwide!  (Karen’s paraphrase of our Statement of the Heart!)

Screen Shot 2018-06-04 at 8.01.13 PM
Annual Catalog June 1, 2018 to June 3, 2019

Here in Castle Rock, CO I will be hosting a catalog launch on Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9, from 8 am to 3 pm.  Join me as we look at new products, make a color chart with the new In Colors and make a bookmark for your catalog using the new Graceful Glass Designer Vellum.

In conjunction with the catalog launch, there will be a craft garage sale!  A couple other stampers and myself are parting with some of our past products to make room for new.  I love ribbon but my ribbon storage is overflowing so I am going to divide up the ribbons and package them for sale.  I keep adding stamp sets to my ‘for sale’ items and then looking at them and putting them back on the shelf and then scolding myself and putting them back out for sale.  Sigh……… it is like breaking up with a friend!  lol

The hostess code through June 9th is UB6X963B.  20% of any sale made at home now or through closing of the sale on Saturday will entitle you to a voucher for use at my craft table.  There will be past Paper Pumpkins for sale, DSP, and Big Shot items.

I had better get to work sorting and packaging!  Have a wonderful day!

Party Pandas Sale A Bration Free Stamp Set

Hello Stamping Friends,

What a flurry of a month this has been!  Our new grandson, Emmitt, was born January 9!

The Buchholtz family! Big brother, Jaxson, says – “Yay!”

 

Glad Grandma!
Proud Papa!
Adoring Auntie!

What a miracle is a new little life!  Fun and adventures for all in the future!

Meantime back to business and the cool new products I have to show you.  Today I will feature the Party Pandas stamp set in the Sale A Bration catalog which is free with a $50 order:

I saw this card setup on stampsnlingers.com with the pandas and balloon, then changed the designer series paper and the balloon and the circles and added hearts; so I guess this is a CASE that is copy and selectively edit instead of copy and share everything! What I would recommend with this stamp set is doing what I did here with the panda’s eyes to make them friendlier.  I used a white gel pen to increase the size of the whites and then made a bigger black dot in the middle of the white.  I thought the eyes were too beady.  Can you tell a difference?

The Designer Series Paper is Pop of Pink which is in the clearance rack for only $3.90 but it won’t last long because it is perfect for Valentines as you can see with the heart paper I used above. Click on the image to visit the clearance rack.



  • Base of the card:  Melon Mambo  5 1/2″  X  8 1/2″  Scored at 4 1/4″
  • 1st Layer:  Whisper White   4″ X  5 1/4″   make two so you have one for the inside
  • Top Layer:  Designer Series Paper (DSP)  3 3/4″  X  5″
  • From the DSP punch a balloon for the inside – Balloon Bouquet Punch #140609, page 207
  • From a scrap of Melon Mambo punch a balloon for the front, sponge the edges and use a white gel pen for the line
  • With the Big Shot, cut two Melon Mambo 1 7/8″ Stitched Shape Circle Framelits and two Whisper White same size
  • Melon Mambo 4 x 4 and Whisper White 4 x 4 needed for the circles, they are offset and pink on white then white on pink
  • Whisper White 2 1/2″  X  4″  for stamping the two pandas with Tuxedo black, color the circles in the hat and then fussy cut
  • Stamp Happy Birthday on Whisper White Scrap and cut with the Bunch of Banners framelit
  • The hearts are from the Brights Enamel Shapes on page 196 of the Annual Catalog #141680
  • The Baker’s Twine I used is retired but there is solid white #124262 or black and white striped  #134576  on page 199.  Trick:  to adhere your Baker’s Twine, position the twine, put a small dab of liquid Tombow on a scrap of paper, slightly lift the twine and slide the scrap with the glue under the twine, let the twine absorb a little glue then remove the scrap.  No mess!
  • Melon Mambo Marker and Black Marker were used to add a little line on the balloon to look like a tie from the twine
  • The inside greeting comes from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set page 96, the confetti is from Party Pandas

Ribbon of Courage in clear mount is $19, the Balloon Punch is $18, The DSP is $3.90, the Enamel Shapes are $9.00 and twine is $3.00 so you can reach your $50 with those purchases and get the Party Pandas for free!!

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July Stamping Friends!

May you have a wonderful day enjoying friends, food and fireworks and may we all remember that ‘freedom is not free’ and the many who have gone before and are serving now to preserve our freedom!  Thank you to all those and thank you to a mighty God  – may “One nation under God”  be forever true!

July has some very special Stampin’ Up! promotions:

And here is the new catalog if you haven’t received a hard copy or want to look at the new products from your mobile device:

If you have ever considered joining Stampin’ Up! to always get a 20% discount on your hobby supplies or to have a business to completely support your love of stamping, or to restock your dwindling supplies, now is a great time to join.   Purchase the starter kit for $99 and receive $125 of products of your choice;  and, in July only, a bonus of supplies will be included with your starter kit!  Look at what is added–all for free!

It is Christmas in July!

That is $197 of product for $99.  There are no obligations tied to joining.  An amazing deal!  My team will be receiving this special catalog bookmark from me and color charts for the new In Colors and……..

Click on either image above to go to the website to join or research further what it means to join and commissions you recieve!

This bookmark uses three of my many favorites in the catalog and the new Lemon Lime Twist ‘In Color’ paper.  The greetings, front and back, are from “Crafting Forever” on page 181.  The butterfly is from the ‘Move Me’ Thinlits and has a lovely matching stamp set (see page 170).  I will be posting a card using that set in the near future.  For those of you who sell cards, the “Crafting Forever’ stamp set has a separate copyright stamp for using on your cards.  The branch is from a long time favorite I hope never retires – “Thoughts and Prayers”, page 100.  Here are the details:

  • Base= Basic Black 2 1/2″  X 6 1/4″
  • Front= Lemon Lime Twist  2 1/4″  X  6″
  • Butterfly= Basic Black  2 1/2″  X  2 1/2″  Cut with Big Shot and Move Me Thinlits -Two butterfly thinlits used together
  • Circles for the top= Basic Black 3/4″, Lemon Lime Twist 1/2″; punched with the 3/16″ hole punch (Crop A Dile)
  • Words= Crafting Forever Stamp Set
  • Dots on background= You Move Me Stamp Set
  • Flowering Branch= Thoughts and Prayers stamp set
  • Ribbon= 6″ Ombre Lemon Lime Twist, 6″ Black Baker’s Twine
  • Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels

And for a few Fourth of July cards I went back into history and found one I had made by creating two sizes of tubes with card stock and then cutting very thin slices of the tube and mounting them to create a fireworks kind of look:

Remember Paper Pumpkin’s cute pinwheels a few years ago?  I mounted them on a decoration I found at the store to make a fun wall hanging:

So celebrate the Stars and Stripes that represent our great country!

Hey Chick!

(If you are opening this in your mobile device, click little SAL at the left  to have a more readable version of the blog.)

Hello Stamping Friends,

Crocus’, daffodils, tulips….oh my!

And then come the iris to beckon our eyes…

“Look, look,” they all seem to cry,

“Spring is here, let’s dance with delight!”

Spring is starting but Sale A Bration (SAB) will soon be ending so the news I am proclaiming from the housetops (blogtops?) is:

Only 10 days left of Sale A Bration with one free item for every $50 purchase.

Terri is our hostess this month and would love to receive credit for your order if it is under $150.

The hostess code for Terri is:  7BTDD3SU

With a purchase of $150 you will receive 10% of the total order in hostess dollars and with purchases of $250 or more you receive an extra $25, a special offer during SAB, plus the standard 10%, so you receive $50 in free products plus one item for each $50 order.

One of the free Sale A Bration stamp sets is called “Hey, Chick” and Evelyn Bicknell from Melbourne, Australia created a pocket card using the stamp set that is awesome!  She also sent a pdf instruction sheet so you can create your own Hey Chick card.  Check this out chickies:

Evelyn Bicknell

Hey Chick Pocket Card

Click on the blue link above for the pdf!  Thank you, Evelyn!

Several of you have selected this set as your free SAB item.  Send me a picture of your creation if you would like to share with our blog followers.

SAL,  (‘Spring’ ing A Long)

Karen

Click the SAL computer image to go to the online store.  Terri thanks you for your order and I thank you by sending a card with a little gift for each online order.  In January my online customers received a set of In Color Doilies (page 175) and in February my online customers received the set of 20 Note Cards and Envelopes (page 176).   For March it will be…………….a surprise!   tee hee cheep cheep!

 

 

 

 

 

Window Shopping Bundle!

Hurry Stamping Friends,

Don’t let the Window Shopping Bundle get away!  It is on page 43 of the Occasions catalog and is just the cutest!  It might get carried over in the big catalog come June 1st, however when Stampin’ Up! introduces a product with matching Thinlits it is bundled with 10% savings but not when it is carried over to the next catalog.  The bundle is $50.25 which will qualify you for a free Sale A Bration product.

Remember, purchase $50 of anything from any catalog and get one item from Sale A Bration for free.  Three additional items were introduced February 21:

Check out the sample items made with these products:

 

Click on the brochure picture below to see all the other Sale A Bration products.  But hurry the Card Tin is already sold out and product is only available while supplies last!

Thank you, Deana, for a wonderful party to introduce the Window Shopping bundle and the Sale A Bration products.

Our project at the party was either a Birthday Box with matching card which uses the Window Shopping stamp set:

or a Thinking of You box and matching card:

Notice the banners use the Delicate Details free stamp set from Sale A Bration:

 

The Emerald Envy box uses the third one down and the Dapper Denim box uses the second one down to be a bit more masculine.  The flower and cupcake on the edges of the banner are part of the Window Box stamp set!  The banner uses a 5 1/2″  X  7/8 inch piece of card stock and the little Thinlit from the set that scores and cuts the end!  The video below will show that in detail.

For a thank you gift, I used the same Window Shopping Bundle and made a little St. Patrick’s Day basket.

 

Hmmm…. It did have chocolate in it at one time; at least the tea light and mints are still there for the picture. I used Cucumber Crush paper and the Mint Macaron ribbon which is still in the Clearance Rack.  Why a tea light?  Because the door prize was a tea light holder made with Watermelon Wonder card stock:

To make the tealight you use two pieces of the main Thinlit just as you do for the box:

Remember the middle heart is directional so punch your windows accordingly.

I demonstrated the basket pieces with the same color.  You only need one piece of the main box Thinlit for the basket and one piece 8 1/2 X 3/4 for the handle:

  The Thinlit set makes a basket just perfect for a little Easter gift!

The regular box uses two Thinlit cutouts which fit nicely on a 6 X 11 piece of paper:

The home office has a wonderful video for construction of the box so rather than recreate the wheel I will insert it here.  If you are viewing this on your smartphone you may need to click on the little SAL image at the top of the post to go to the main blog where videos work.

Drum roll please:  Presenting The Window Box Thinlit dies:

One more quick note – check the bottom of your Big Shot machine once in awhile.  The bottom screws need to be kept tightened as well as the screw on the handle.  The machine comes with a little tool to keep the handle tightened but you will need a phillips screw driver to tighten the bottom screws.

Cheerio but be back soon!   (I just went to the high school’s performance of Oliver.  It was exceptional and I can’t get the songs out of my mind- but who would want too?!)

SAL,
