Wildcard Wednesday – Bulbous Cactus?

Creative Stamping with Susanne

I have no idea where to place the flowers on a cactus. These fascinating plants are a mystery to me. I don’t own one, as they are prickly and I had no idea till I started stamping that they grew flowers. I also had no idea that people eat them. However, I sure love the product medley that is on Page 9 of the Mini Catalogue and am happy to share my creative process with you. The curvy die and the product medley are headed for retirement and they won’t be seen again.

Simple Stamping with Susanne

Hello stamping peeps, I have a fun card to share with you, but first I wanted to let you know that the clearance rack is updated. In case you wanted to check out that page please click here > CLEARANCE RACK

This product medley is retiring on May 4 and it will be gone forever. I am hoping that you will find the value in this medley like I have. It’s a fun and cheerful product collection.

Fabricate Friday – My Sticker Box

3D Fabricating with Susanne

Hello and TGIF! I was working like a crazy person this last week, hoping to get everything in place for those of you who like my Product Shares! In case you are reading this, the pages are out and you are welcome to view and register for the shares for this year. Sorry , no pictures right now. I get my order today but with the pre-order we don’t get to buy all the things. Lol. I did buy all of the in-colours and if you are wanting to get in on all the IN-colours you may want to consider my In-colour club. It’s a pretty cool way of getting all the things, spread over a little bit of time and get free gifts and bonuses along the way. Here are the links to the pages.

Monday Makes – Dandy Garden Card today!

Simple Stamping with Susanne

Happy day! It’s Monday and it’s the first of the week of fun projects I have lined up for you. I am happy to share a card from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set. This is a simple card but I do wow it up a little. I love how it turned out and I do really enjoy simple cards.

Some of my simple online card classes are in the last month and while supplies last. These were the one that I had featuring for a while but alas the products are retiring. I would love it if you took a look at the page, to make sure you are not missing out on a really good opportunity.

Inspiration awaits…

Fabricate Friday – A big box project.

3D Fabricating with Susanne

Hello and TGIF! I hope you enjoy the project for today. I like these big projects that can be useful for the season at hand. I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter. I don’t have anything special planned for the weekend. I have a few small errands to do but pretty much I am sheltering in place, trying to make the most of my time at home. The weather is starting to warm up and that means that it’s time to do some spring cleaning!

Speaking of spring cleaning…the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue coming in a very short time and a lot of products that will not be carried over are on sale. I have a few online classes where the products have been discounted. Please note the changes to these products. It’s a win win situation when you get the same high quality products and inspirations for a lesser price.

Have you had a chance to see the retiring list? If you click on the picture below you can go directly to the online store and see ALL of the products that are retiring. I suggest shopping now rather than waiting as you will be disappointed. Some of the products are already sold out.

Here is the project for today. If you watch the video you will see an amazing sneak peek! (spoilers).

To see today’s second video, scroll down to see the YouTube video but first let me give you the measurements on how I put this project together.

 The Details:

  • Cardstock sizing: 2 pieces sized 6 1/2″ x 11″
  • Long side scored at: 3″, 7 1/4″, and 10 1/4″
  • Short side scoring at: 3″ and 6″
  • Patterned paper sizing: 4 pcs 4″ x 2 3/4″ and 1 pc for the lid sized at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4″

Below is a button to the my online store but following that, are the specific links to what I have used on today’s project.

Free Card Kit of the Month

Get a FREE card kit shopping with Susanne

As the month ends, so does the host code and along with that, the host code changes. If you choose to shop with me this month and your order is less than $200 please use the host code below. I will send you the kit of the month, to which this blog post is dedicated.

I want you to know that I appreciate my customers so very much and I will work hard for you in any capacity that I can. I have been bogged down a little bit, with the change in season and spring cleaning happening in my apartment. I also have had some time consuming projects here getting ready for the summer and of course, running my own salon has of late taken more time away from the craft desk. That being said, my first order of business is to tackle my email issue, then the Many Messages Online Class will be dealt with. Then if everything goes to plan, I will be working on pricing out the new Paper/Ribbon/Embellishment Share plus one BIG NEW thing that I think you, my lovely customer, may be interested in. Also, before I forget, I used Stampin’ Up! to mail out your catalogue but I will be sending you something special in the mail from my craft desk to yours to celebrate the New Catalogue coming in a few months. Keep an eye out for your copy! Hopefully you will get it BEFORE May 4th.
