Wildcard Wednesday – FREE CARD KIT

Happy Canada Day everyone!  I hope you have a lovely day off and for those of you who are not Canadian, I sure hope you get a chance to go outside in the near future to try to grab some rays.

Today is the day to introduce you to a new card kit of the month.  If you don’t know about my perk please check out this page right now to get the low down.  It has all the information you may want to know.  I encourage you to LOOK for the answers to your questions BEFORE emailing or PMing me.  I have a “real” day job and I am not able to respond right away.  Sometimes I don’t even see that my FB page has a message.  It’s frustrating to know folks have been waiting for an answer when I know the information is right here on my blog.

Here is the project today.  I hope you enjoy the design.

Thank you for watching and I hope you have a lovely Canada Day.

Monday Makes – Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

Happy Monday to you.  I hope you are doing well.  Today I have the alternatives for you.  I hope you enjoy the looooong video, have fun and get inspired.  Blessings to you.

Just a little reminder before the video.  You can order an add on to the fun new kit that is coming in July.  Even more summer cards.  What a cute idea.

  • The Summer Nights Kit includes nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, plus nine die-cut tealight bags. To receive this kit, your customers must have an active subscription by 10 July.
  • The Summer Nights Add-On is a separate purchase for those who would like to expand the Summer Nights Kit with a traditional cardmaking experience.
  • Once you have completed July’s kit, you’ll have leftover kit components—these pieces easily combine with the Summer Nights Add-On. No additional kit purchases necessary!
  • Between the leftover kit components and the add-on, it’s estimated that you will be able to create at least 20 additional Summer Nights cards!
  • The Summer Nights Add-On is $10.00 $13.00 CAD and is only available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers. The add-on is available while supplies last, beginning 1 July!
  • As with any other Stampin’ Up! product, you will need to purchase the add-on through a demonstrator order or the online store. It cannot be added to a Paper Pumpkin subscription purchase.
  • You must have an active Paper Pumpkin subscriber email to purchase the add-on.

Monday Makes – Die cut dry embossing! An easy technique!

No joke friends.  I am happy to share this fun, easy technique with you today.  I had a lot of left over die cuts from the paper piecing video last week so I thought I would use them today to do a fun technique.  Check it out.

There are some better pictures in the video, but I wanted to share an up close one here so you can see that indeed the die did emboss quite well but subtle.

Wildcard Wednesday – Inlaid Die Cut featuring Blossoms in Bloom Bundle

Hi crew.  I promised you in the last post that I had a lot of inspiration to support this bundle.  I realize that it is a higher price point but that just means that you should be able to do a whole lot more with it.  Before I get into content I want to let all of the folks who were in my product share this publication…I have received the parcel.  There is a lot to go through and I will take a few days to get it together.  However, your shares will be mailed out Monday June 22.  That being said there are a few products that were backordered 😦  and some of them were your free gifts (double sad face).  I will list the backordered items here:

  • magenta madness in colour ribbon
  • bumble bee in colour ribbon
  • cinnamon cider in colour ribbon
  • gilded gems
  • in colour enamel dots
  • forever greenery trim combo pack
  • gold hoops embellishments

I will send out your shares on Monday anyway, and when the backordered items come to me you will receive them shortly after.  I do apologize for the back ordered items, I ordered the share as fast as I could when the catalogue went live but I guess the supplies were already at a low number by then.  Demonstrators get to order a month before everyone else and the forecast for the products sometimes is off.  This is so true for the holiday catalogue.  I always say order as soon as you can out of the holiday catalogue because getting your supplies early is better than being ticked off at the end.  😦

Did I mention that there is a joining offer going on right now?  You could get a free bundle if you were to sign up to receive your starter kit.  Check this out!

I hope you consider this offer as I would really love to have you on my team. Just click the picture to read all about why one should join, and all the answers to the questions you have about discount shopping and starter kit getting.  I want to make it clear that there is no commitment.  You can join and drop without penalty.  You are not locked in to anything like other companies.

I say join my team and get a few free things and become one of my amazing team members for a while and then drop when you want and become my customer again”.  It’s as simple as that.

Click to join up. I want YOUR talent on my team.

If you choose to pass on that offer, then how about signing up for my newest online class featuring this amazing bundle that I am talking about in the video for today.  Check it out!

Monday Makes – A Blossoms in Bloom Card

Hi friends.

It has been a while.  Thanks for giving me some space so I could re-group.  You may not know this but I own my own salon and after being closed for 2 months there was a great many things to do, a lot of new procedures and policies to develop, a lot of hard work and also the worries of maybe not being able to weather the covid storm.  I have been under a tremendous amount of stress dealing with it all and I do very much appreciate that I can step back from the blog and YouTube channel for a bit to focus on what needs to be done without pressure from my lovely and amazing customers.  Stampin’ Up! is not my full time gig like it is with some other big names in Canada.  I am a very small fish doing my best in this competitive direct sales crafting business. When something big like the Covid-19 pandemic (or even when I was renovating my salon) happens sometimes I have to take a step back to focus on the big picture.  I know that it is disappointing to some.  I get emails/messages daily asking where, what and why.  I want you to know that my stamping family, customers, team members, subscribers and followers mean a great deal to me.  Right now it’s not my full time job and I needed to step away from the constant onslaught of creating and producing in order to concentrate on my real career for a time.

I will admit that it really was lovely when I was isolating because I had all the time to spend creating and producing and that gave me purpose.  However, all the isolating was a bit hard on my mental health as well.  I don’t talk about this much but I assume that you can understand that some folks are more affected by it than others.  This is true for me.  As much as it was nice to interact with all my internet friends it is not the same as chatting one on one.   I live alone with 2 cats in a very tiny apartment.  Somedays it was really hard.  I don’t very often spill personal stuff on my blog but since I did get some backlash for not being online for a bit I felt I needed to explain.  I do ask for kindness and understanding because it may happen again in the future…who knows?  I know my limits and feel fortunate that this Stampin’ Up! side hustle is adjustable to suit my needs.

In conclusion, I want to say this, no matter what I am going through, I am in a constant state of gratitude and so very thankful for Stampin’ Up! the company,  for my really amazing talented team and my fantastic customers.  Every single time when I am struggling a bit with something, amazing things happen to help me out.  I am so very grateful for all the opportunities that I have been given and please know that I am more committed to this “jobby” each and every day.  I could go on and on here.  I really could…. but I won’t because I know exactly why you came here today…and me gibberjabbing about my life is not it.  However, if you did want to discuss things with me and hear my story you may be interested in the joining offer that Stampin’ Up! has going on till the end of the month.  Check it out below.

Now, for the reason why you are here!  Today’s inspiration.  I am so pleased to share with you a design from the Blossoms in Blooms Bundle.  I spent some time on the weekend and created a new online class featuring this bundle and am really impressed with how many techniques I could do with it.  I created 3 designs for the Online Card Class, today’s content and 2 more designs for the blog and 1 more for the amazing crew at the VIP SuNN Social Facebook Group.  It’s going to be a Blossoms in Bloom week!  I have 2 more ideas up my sleeve so you can trust me when I say that this is a very versatile bundle that can create some fun and beautiful designs.

If you are interested in learning about the Online Card Class please click the button below to see the new registration procedure and more information about the class.  You may also notice that I have streamlined the blog a little bit to help with ease of use and tidy some dusty corners.
