Final Day of Boxing Week and Wedding Card

Final Day of Boxing Week Sale

If you thought about making jewelry, here’s your chance to get 50% off the supplies!  Here’s what’s on sale this today until 5pm EST:


Wedding Card

I have a few weddings coming up and I love this very elegant wedding card created by Brenda H from the 50 Card Swap.  Recreate it by using your embossing tool or score board to create the grid pattern and a sponge dauber to do the shading in the bottom of the squares.   I found it easier to have 2 scrap strips of paper to create the corner so I could daub without worries of getting ink where I did not want it.

I love the black and shimmer ribbon.  Creates such a look of elegance to the card.  Mat the sentiment with black cardstock.   On Your Wedding Day is a cute, simple set that you can use for years for any wedding events you might have both to scrap and send cards.

I love our thin cut hearts!  Cut from our red glitter paper, you get enough bling to brighten the card up and still keep it elegant.  Red hearts = Love.

Mystery Hostess – are you playing?  Don’t miss out

Washi Tape Storage Idea

Washi Tape Storage

I came across this great idea, especially after Christmas and all the gift wrapping for storing washi tape:

Talk about a great idea to reuse an old tape dispenser and have a great place for the washi tape.  Plus with the tape dispenser, you get the tear edge for easy tearing.  I can’t take the credit for this idea.  I picked it up off of one of the FB boards.  Another idea I’ll share quickly is this: Save all those Aluminum Foil and Saran Wrap boxes.  The washi tape fits right in and you have the metal tear strip for easy tearing.  Another great way to reuse or repurpose trash.  This also packs well for crops.  Hope you can make use of these great ideas.

Boxing Week Sale:

The new items today are:


It’s The Little Things:

Don’t for get “It’s The Little Things” special – these are great deals to stock up on for mini album projects or presents for folks.  These bundles are discounted so another great thing to get on sale!!

Enjoy the washi tape holder ideas.  Have a great day!



Emoji Card and Boxing Week Sale

Emoji Card

I think as we rush towards the New Year, 2017, away from the craziness of 2016, there are a lot mixed emotions.  This Emoji Card reflects this!  The Emoji Stamp set is perfect for the teens and young adults in your life.  Have you seen all the Emoji “stuff” out in the stores?

Anyway, I can’t take credit for this cute card as one of the 50 Card Swappers, Betsy G, created the design for the card.

Don’t you just love the little faces?  C1669 Emoji is the stamp set used.  I’m amazed at the new language in our culture.

Boxing Week Sale:

It’s a new day and new items.  There are lots of great embellishments available today until 3pm MST or until they run out.  Here’s what’s available today:

Be sure to check back at 3pm MST (5pm EST) to see what goes up next or wait for tomorrow’s post.  Enjoy the emoji card.

Essential Oil Education:

Essential Oils (EO) are the craze right now.  What’s the fuss?  Do you want to learn more?  Is this a fad or something that can really work?  I have a Facebook group that is focused solely on learning how to use oils and their possible benefits for you and your family.   If you are curious about the oils and are not associated with an oil company right now, please feel free to join the group.
