Final Day of Boxing Week and Wedding Card

Final Day of Boxing Week Sale

If you thought about making jewelry, here’s your chance to get 50% off the supplies!  Here’s what’s on sale this today until 5pm EST:


Wedding Card

I have a few weddings coming up and I love this very elegant wedding card created by Brenda H from the 50 Card Swap.  Recreate it by using your embossing tool or score board to create the grid pattern and a sponge dauber to do the shading in the bottom of the squares.   I found it easier to have 2 scrap strips of paper to create the corner so I could daub without worries of getting ink where I did not want it.

I love the black and shimmer ribbon.  Creates such a look of elegance to the card.  Mat the sentiment with black cardstock.   On Your Wedding Day is a cute, simple set that you can use for years for any wedding events you might have both to scrap and send cards.

I love our thin cut hearts!  Cut from our red glitter paper, you get enough bling to brighten the card up and still keep it elegant.  Red hearts = Love.

Mystery Hostess – are you playing?  Don’t miss out

Washi Tape Storage Idea

Washi Tape Storage

I came across this great idea, especially after Christmas and all the gift wrapping for storing washi tape:

Talk about a great idea to reuse an old tape dispenser and have a great place for the washi tape.  Plus with the tape dispenser, you get the tear edge for easy tearing.  I can’t take the credit for this idea.  I picked it up off of one of the FB boards.  Another idea I’ll share quickly is this: Save all those Aluminum Foil and Saran Wrap boxes.  The washi tape fits right in and you have the metal tear strip for easy tearing.  Another great way to reuse or repurpose trash.  This also packs well for crops.  Hope you can make use of these great ideas.

Boxing Week Sale:

The new items today are:


It’s The Little Things:

Don’t for get “It’s The Little Things” special – these are great deals to stock up on for mini album projects or presents for folks.  These bundles are discounted so another great thing to get on sale!!

Mystery Hostess:

Every $25.00 you order online gets you in to the drawing for the Mystery Hostess.  We have 2 – 50% off items and $80 off hostess credit! Make sure your order is part of the Dec/Jan Online Orders Gathering.

Enjoy the washi tape holder ideas.  Have a great day!



Emoji Card and Boxing Week Sale

Emoji Card

I think as we rush towards the New Year, 2017, away from the craziness of 2016, there are a lot mixed emotions.  This Emoji Card reflects this!  The Emoji Stamp set is perfect for the teens and young adults in your life.  Have you seen all the Emoji “stuff” out in the stores?

Anyway, I can’t take credit for this cute card as one of the 50 Card Swappers, Betsy G, created the design for the card.

Don’t you just love the little faces?  C1669 Emoji is the stamp set used.  I’m amazed at the new language in our culture.

Boxing Week Sale:

It’s a new day and new items.  There are lots of great embellishments available today until 3pm MST or until they run out.  Here’s what’s available today:

Be sure to check back at 3pm MST (5pm EST) to see what goes up next or wait for tomorrow’s post.  Enjoy the emoji card.

Check out this super cute card:

S1606 Card 1 wm

Made this card for the SE2 Card swap so stay tuned for some additional amazing cards from this creative group of ladies I’m so blessed to swap with.

S1506 Card 1 a wm

I used Shimmer Trim in Red and Black to create the border and one of the pennants on the card.  I used 3-D foam tape to pop up the card panel.  The base paper is one of the papers from the Magical Pack.

S1606 Card 1b

I stamped the yield sign in Honey and used 3-D foam tape to pop it up.  I love the Magical Sequins with their bright colors so ready for summer!  They can be used for anything!

S1606 Card 1c wm

I used Liquid Glass to make the windows of the car shiny (not that you can tell from the picture) and a silver gel pen to add the shimmer to wheels and strips on the car/bumper.

So set your alarm to not miss the sale and thanks for stopping by my creative corner of the internet.  =)
