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.

Monday Makes – A Many Mates Two-fer

Oh my goodness that title was a tongue twister.  Lol.  Happy Monday to you.  I am happy to report as you read this I will be back in my salon in full mask and shield.  I will try to post some fun photos on Facebook and Twitter if you are interested.  So, heads up, if you are emailing me or messaging me I most likely will not be as quick to answer as I have been in the past.

For today’s post I wanted to share a project with the product that I was able to pre-purchase this month.  It’s a really cool bundle, and buying the items together gives you a 10% discount but they don’t have to be used together.  Meaning that the products stand alone by themselves but I thought it was nice that Stampin’ Up! bundled them together as I get a discount and so do you!

Here are the card designs I made today, yes it is two cards using one die cut.  I am happy to keep sharing how one could stretch their supplies.  This is a great example of that.   I forgot to mention in the video that I was using a new in colour card stock as well as the ink.  I really like Misty Moonlight.   One more thing, just as a reminder the new catalogue doesn’t launch until June 3 so I have not included links to any of the products today.  In the video I share with you where you can find them in your catalouge and I hope that is enough information to get you pointed in the right direction.

Thanks for watching.  I want to remind you to please check out the Ornate Garden Blog Page as it has some pre-release products for customers.

Monday Makes – A whole lot of cards

Hello and welcome to the AD free version of my blog!  I hope you find this more pleasing than the past.  I have been holding off on upgrading my platform here because, well…let’s face it I was being cheap.  However, if I want folks to keep checking in on my blog and come here for inspiration then they should not be bombarded with ads.  I don’t regret the past, as before I was not really in the position in my business to have a lot of extra but since my YouTube channel gives me a tiny stipend each month I figured that I would splurge for the extras here on the blog.  Anyway, here is the card designs for today.   I hope you like them and try them out on your own.  The sentiments were from the Sending Sunshine PDF Covid-19 Give Back Program and you can find out about the HERE>  SENDING SUNSHINE PDF

Monday Makes – A Seaside Scape card

Hello and happy Monday.  It’s Monday.  I don’t know who needed to hear that but hey, it’s Monday.  I am thankful for you sharing your time with me today.  I most likely am going a little insane as you can tell in the video where I start talking about coconuts.  Don’t ask…please humour me.  Here is the card design for today.  I hope you get inspired and have fun.

Oh Hey, wait a second.  I forgot to remind you that my news update came out yesterday, in case you missed it (and all the deals that were stuffed in it) here is the link.  https://bit.ly/3cpqBjI

Monday Makes – 4 Cards

Happy Easter Monday.  I hope you had a lovely Easter.  I sure did.  I made myself Easter Brunch which consisted of Eggs Benedict  and then for dinner I had roasted root vegetables and lollipop lamb chops.  Holidays for me always center around food.  I also have been watching a new to me YouTube videos about a UK icon cook named Mary Berry.  If you are self isolating like me, and want the comfort of a nice older lady to share with you her AHmazing cooking skills check her out.  That is what inspired the big cook off today, I have to admit.  However, just because I am just one doesn’t mean that I can’t treat myself to a restaurant style meal right?  I have a dishwasher so I don’t even have to do the washing up!  Oh, I am most grateful for that machine.  When I lived in my previous abodes (many of them did not have one) and I feel that I really am so very spoiled now.  I won’t wash many dishes now…I leave them all for the machine.  I feel that I am getting my footing for my “new normal” of being socially distanced.  For the first few weeks it seemed like a vacation, but I soon got bored with that, then I started baking things, and now I realize that probably isn’t the best use of my time, so now…things will start clicking into place online here.  After today, I shall be concentrating on my demonstrator efforts a lot more.  I had slacked off of the newsletters because of everything going on in the world.  I now think that a little positive inspirations and thoughts are welcomed.  So in other words…stay tuned for some newsletters and fun content coming up.

Oh, and one more thing, I will be launching an online class this week and we are a short distance away from the new catalogue so that is something awesome to look forward to.  Remember the rule, I will automatically send a catalogue to any customer who has shopped with me 3 months previous to a catalouge.

Enough chatter right?  Here is the project for today.  I hope you have fun and get inspired.

Monday Makes – An Amazing Card

Hello folks.  I am happy to share with you a fun, happy, bright card.  Something to take our minds off of what is going on in the world right now.  I wanted simple but fun.  Even Molly my quiet polite little kitty wanted in on the action today.  I hope you enjoy the video and the fun technique and get inspired to stay indoors and hang out in your craft room.

I intentionally left the cat hair on the photo so you can see my real struggle of trying to have beautiful photography for this blog!  Ha ha.

Just a heads up, the Painted Poppies Class date will be extended.  Right now the products are back ordered with a “To be announced” date.  So, one can still sign up for the class but payment won’t be expected until the backorder status is lifted.  However, if you have already purchased this set and wish to substitute something else of equal or greater value I would be most happy to swap anything out for you.  I am happy to help keep you in your craft room staying safe.

If you have the bundle substitute the for something else and still get the class inspiration!
