Monday Makes – Cherry Blossom Cluster

Hello friends.

Thank you for joining me on such a lovely day.  I hope you had a lovely weekend.  I had loads to get accomplished this weekend and I am trying my best to produce some nice inspirations for you.  I hope you like today’s project because it’s a bonus design for my Bird Ballad Online Class!  That’s right, I don’t always save the best designs for those that shop with me.  I am happy to share with everyone too.  However, if you have been on the fence about this fun bundle I do suggest picking it up as the inspiration videos and card packet are really awesome.

I think I have mentioned when one online class comes in the other goes out….the last days for the Proud Peacock are limited.  Click on the photo below for more information on this class.

Before I get into today’s inspiration I want you to know that there are exactly 3 days left to get coupons for Bonus Days.  In case you didn’t know about about this promotion it’s where Stampin’ Up! gives you a $6 coupon for every $60 you spend.  You can use this coupon for the next month.  It’s accumulative so one could get a whole wack of coupon if they were so inclined.  I have taken this sale seriously and I, myself will have quite a few coupons to help ease the shopping frenzy that will ensue when the Holiday Catalogue launches.

With that being said there is one more promotion that I want you to know about and it’s a beauty.  I have had 2 people sign up for this one recently and it’s actually better than SALE-A-BRATION.  This is concerning the STARTER KIT offer.  It’s called the Extra Extra promotion and it’s a WOWZER!  Check it out, you buy the starter kit for $135 CAD.  Normally you get $165 worth of product (of your choice) but with this EXTRA EXTRA promotion, the goods for you amount to $205!!! Plus you get a $14 coupon to be spent on your next order!  Your starter kit is  free of shipping costs as well…so that’s another saving of $20.  AND, as a demonstrator you get to PRE ORDER all the things from the Holiday Catalogue (no back orders for you this time!)  I am always looking for new talent to add to my team and I would love to have you aboard.  Is it your time yet?  Click the photo to sign up today!

If you make a purchase after clicking on my link, I receive a small commission as your demonstrator with no extra cost to you. I truly appreciate your support when shopping with me. Please do not hesitate to ask me a question as I am here to help you.

Wildcard Wednesday – Sponging Kindness

Hello my stamping friends.  You may or may not know this but I really like sponging.  It has got to be my favorite technique out there.  I just love blending inks on paper.  I could do it for hours and to be honest…sometimes I have.

Today’s card is all about sponging a background.  Sometimes a design just needs to be subtle and understated.  Elegant, in a way.  Check out today’s project.

Happy I am home

Hello Friends.

I am back from my amazing holiday in Greece and Italy.  It was my very first incentive trip and wow, what a whirl win trip.  I had the greatest hope that I would be able to do live videos and such with you all but the WiFi was very sketchy at best on the ship and there was really no way I was able to do it from the package I bought (which was supposed to be high speed).  Anyway, when I get a chance I will put together the video footage and let you see some of what I saw.  Over the next week I am peppering in some photos on Facebook page.  So if you are at all interested you can see some fun stuff on there.   SuNN Stampin’ Facebook Page. While you are there you may want to check out the last few retired stamp sets I have for sale.  Anyway, I had so much fun on the cruise and travelling around Italy and I feel that I would love to visit there again.  I did rub the nose of a pig so I would come back one day (or rather that is what the tour guide told us.  Those Italians…they have crazy rules.

I did happen to do a few live videos on YouTube as well so in case you missed those you may want to pop by my channel to see them.  SuNN Stampin’ YouTube Channel .  While you are there remember to click the bell, so you get alerted to any live YouTube video I may do in the future.


While I was on holiday Stampin’ Up! released a new promotion and I thought I would go over the details with you today.  This is a really good deal and I want everyone to really understand what is being offered because it’s REALLY BIG NEWS!!!!

If you have a shopping list that is over $135 – it really is just a smart move to get more product for free and join up. Here are just a few reasons why it would be a really clever idea to join up –

However, I also support those folks that want to try to make their hobby a “jobby”.  I am trrilled to share my knowledge about blogging, social media, filming and the ins and outs of things.  I learned everything for myself so I am super happy to share with my team so it’s easier for them.  So one can look at it as being a VIP shopper with an ongoing discount or one can grow their hobby into an amazing career.  Shape this opportunity to be whatever you want and I am happy to support your vision.  This truly is such a fantastic opportunity for you!

Monday Makes – A Back on Your Feet Card

Hello stampin’ friends.  I hope you had a restful weekend.  Today’s project is a super cute and very simple fun fold card.  I have used the easel design before but not with this stamp set.  So all you need to know how to make the card is you need to have a piece of cardstock that is 11″ long and 4 1/4″ wide.  You would score it at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2 ” .  That’s it.  Simple.  Watch the video for placement.

Fabricate Friday – Happy Accidents

You most likely have heard of that expression in crafting right?  When you make a mistake and you do something else and that project turns out even better than what was originally made.  Well folks, that is just what happened to me.  The paper used in the project today was a card that went wrong…so I made a really awesome box with it.  Check it out.

Wildcard Wednesday – Pocketful of Happiness

Hello folks.  Happy Wednesday to you.  I am happy you are here for a little inspiration today.  I have a really cute card design today and I think it could be duplicated with many other stamp sets.  Check it out.

I coloured this very simply using my watercolour pencils.  I am pretty sure I could step this one up quite a bit but I choose to go for a more simple look today.

Fabricate Friday – A Barefoot Venus Lotion Box

Hello there.  You may or may not know this but last year I earned Stampin’ Up!’s coveted incentive trip with the help of my lovely customers and team members.  I wanted to bring some little handmade boxes with some lotion that is made in my home town to some of the folks that I have met online and will be meeting for the first time in person this week.  This is what I have come up with.  Check it out.

PS:  If you are interested in the products within my cute little box feel free to stop by the website and order yourself some lotion, tell them I sent you 🙂 .  The lemon freckle is my current favorite and it smells like lemon cookie.  Ah-mazing!  Barefoot Venus Online Sore
