Wildcard Wednesday – First Impressions of the C&E Machine and the most sparkly card I ever made.

Creative Stamping with Susanne

I am not joking, this is the seriously the most sparkly card I have ever made.  It was quite difficult to photograph too but in the video I explain that I was taking a first look at the new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and giving my first impressions.  When looking at new tools like this we try to throw things at it that has been issues for us in the past.  Die cutting glitter paper has been difficult, also sometimes die cutting multiple items is an issue and sometimes die cutting sever things with several different papers have given me troubles in the past.  So these are all the things that I put the new C&E Machine through.  I know loads of other folks are calling it with many abbreviations and acronyms but I like the sound of C&E Machine.  Lol.  Anyway, here is a look at my sparkly card, which I just made by the seat of my pants while testing said C&E machine.  Take a look.

I really like using the winter snow embossing folder and for only $10.25 it’s a real hit with those of us who are budget crafters.  The second favorite thing was the Joy dies.  I love a word die but this has a fine word, then a mat and then a second mat.  I love this dimensional look.  The other words in the die set are Joy and Bright.  I can’t wait to create more with these products.

Week of Tags – Day 4

Happy Thursday to you.  I hope you are enjoying the mini series so far.  I have to tell you that I haven’t run out of ideas when it comes to tags.  I have so many more up my sleeve, however, all good things must come to an end.  It quite possible that I will share some more in the weeks ahead or possibly on my email club.  If you haven’t already you may want to subscribe to get crafty info and inspiration at least once a month from me (with content that I share NO where else)!

Just a note here that there is still a week long sale going on at the online store, products 40%, 30%, and 20% off…plus there is also the clearance rack where there is A LOT of items.  Have you seen the box builder board?  It’s 40% of it’s original price, it makes 3 sizes of boxes and they are super cute…and so professional looking.  Anyway, it’s my job to point this stuff out for you my lovely customers.  #justsaying

On with the project at hand, here is a super simple, really adorable and wintery feeling tag.  Which one was your favorite?

Week of Tags Day 3

Simple.  I like to create projects that are simple enough to put together and this tag is one of them.  I think it would look great on a gift wrapped plate of home made cookies with a hot chocolate package included.  This tag has a feel of vintage and has a nostalgic feel to it don’t you think?  This would be the perfect gift tag for those guys that are in your life…

I know that I always post the links and I do hope that it is helping you find your way to the online store.  I would love it if you choose me as your demonstrator.  I would like to remind you that there are sales going on and if you wish to purchase something please remember to the use the HOST code if your order is under $200.  That way I can send you a card kit and a homemade card or perhaps a tag or two!  The host code for this month is  NT474UNA and there is only ten more days to use it.  I really hope you would consider me as your demonstrator as I would love to bring you more mini series like this one but I can only do that with your support. Click the photo below to see the massive deals at the store.

Here is the inspiration for the day.  I hope you like these simple, vintage tags.

Christmas Crush Day 20

Well TGIF I say.  It’s been a long week and I get a 3 day weekend.  I decided to take the day off tomorrow to observe Remembrance Day.  We have ceremonies in the morning so it I feel it will be nice to pay my respects to those who have protected me in my amazing country.  Of course we all will remember and reflect of the sacrifices that were made.  I say to anyone who is in service now and who has made sacrifices for me, Thank you.  I am humbled.

Today’s project would be an excellent one to give to someone special.  A fancy lidded box with a little tip from the Amazing Connie Stewart who thought of an amazing simple tool to help with lidded boxes.  Check out the video if you want to know more.

Christmas Crush Day 10

Hi there.  TGIF!!!  I have a really cute box to share with you today.  I am using my amazing new Specialty Designer Series Paper again.  I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff.  When I was editing the video I thought to myself that for the embellishment (bow) I could have used the new Year of Cheer Washi tape instead of the little strip of foil I used.  You will see in the video but I wanted to state it here that there could be an alternative.  Have you seen the new washi tapes yet?  They are glorious and I highly recommend that you grab some before they retire at the end of December.  I know, we all have too much washi tape but seriously…this stuff is beautiful.

I have been including a shopping link every post during this series because I have had a few people have trouble searching for my name in the online store.  I hope that by placing a one stop shopping button front and center that it helps a few people with their trouble. Did you know that the online store is open 24/7?  Yep, you can shop in your pajamas if you want.  Click the button below to head to the online store.

Here is the project for today.  I hope you give this one a try…it was a seriously quick project.
