Mojo Monday #251

Welcome to a new week! Hope this is the start of a good one for you. 
There was an article posted on Scrapbook Update about the recent Stampin' Up! convention that was very interesting. I hope to go next year, and I look forward to having some of my downline team join me. So if you think Stampin' Up! might be for you and you might like to attend a convention, stay tuned for a great promotion coming August 1.

So, today's card is actually last week's Mojo Monday sketch, using some of my new Framelits.

Hi Ho Bloggers! Sorry for the late post today.
Today's project is a note holder that I made about a week ago but it seemed like it was lacking something. So I added a few new elements...
and voila!

Gift Bag

Happy Wednesday! I wasn't feeling well yesterday so I didn't end up spending any time creating. So today's project is a CASE from my Stampin' Success magazine. 
Stampin' Success is a magazine filled with inspiration and business building ideas for demonstrators.

Hi all! It's been a busy weekend and unfortunately I don't have a lot to share at this point this week. 
I did make a brooch CASE'D from Janet, a fellow SU demonstrator.

Christmas in July Day 4

It smells like cookies in here! And if you know me you know that I don't cook or bake so there's no cookies here....but I have something better....Sugar & Spice Scented Embossing Powder! And smells so good! I want to emboss everything in sight so I can keep smelling this! LOL

Holiday Catalogue Preview Info 
So in this section I want to tell you what you can look forward to in the new Holiday Catalogue.
And today I am obviously going to talk about the Scented Embossing Powder. It comes in two different scents...Peppermint Sticks and Sugar & Spice. The scent will last for up to two weeks and I have to say that they smell so good. Sugar & Spice will emboss in a slightly off white color so it is best used with darker colors and the Peppermint Sticks embossing powder will emboss clear. And today's card features the Sugar & Spice Embossing Powder....

My Christmas Sneak Peek today uses the new Scentsational Season stamp set as well as the new Scalloped Tulle Ribbon and Good Cheer wheel. I also used the new Candlelight Christmas DSP.
And my card is perfect for the Playing in Paradise Challenge #76, as the new Scalloped Tulle Ribbon is definitely soft and fluffy!

Christmas in July Day 3!

Hi ho Bloggers! It's Wednesday and and I'm hoping for some sun today. The last few days have been gloomy. Although I am grateful for the slight cool down that it has caused.

Holiday Catalogue Preview Info

I'm very excited to announce that Stampin' Up! is offering Core'dinations cardstock in Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Gumball Green! As well as the Dust Buddy and Sanding System. For those of you not familiar with this cardstock it is a sandable cardstock that has a smooth side and a textured side. The inside is a monochromatic color that can be revealed by sanding, tearing or distressing! So Cool! Watch my blog for samples using this creative new product coming soon!

Today's card is once again featuring the Holiday Ornaments bundle. Hope you enjoy! Please leave me a comment!

Christmas in July Day 1

Happy Monday y'all! Okay well I guess the Calgary Stampede is over so we should get back to talking normally around here, LOL. 

I am very excited to say that I received my pre-order from the Holiday Catalogue last week. And I can't wait to share my new goodies with you! So this week is going to be a tribute to Christmas in July. 

Holiday Catalogue Preview Info 
So in this section I want to tell you what you can look forward to in the new Holiday Catalogue.
One of the things that I am very excited about in the new Holiday Catalogue is the Big Shot dies that match the stamp sets. There are several of these stamps sets that are offered. And even better news is that if you are planning to purchase one of these stamp sets and the matching dies, you can purchase them in a bundle for increased value and savings! So be sure to watch for bundles when you are looking through your new catalogue.

So, today's card features one of the stamp sets that I mentioned above but today I am not using the dies that go with it. I will be featuring the dies in tomorrow's card. 
The stamp set in today's card is called Ornament Keepsakes.

Best Wishes Embossed

Hi all! I think I may be dying from the heat! LOL It was 31 degrees today and I admit that I am not a big fan when it gets that hot. But I am grateful for the sunshine, don't get me wrong.
So today's card is an embossed technique card, that can be used as a wedding card or a birthday card. 
I hope that you like it!

It's Monday again. Time for a new week and some hot weather! I have to say that I am not a fan of very warm weather.
Today's card is something that I saw and I loved the idea so I decided to CASE it. I hope that you enjoy!

It's Friday, Friday, Friday! And a day off for me! Although I'm not sure what to do with that day off this week. I have no plans.

Have you seen the new A Reason to Smile stamp set? I posted a picture of it on here earlier in the week. I hope that you will check it out. It's really cute and you get can it for only $5 this month! 

I have some great workshops planned for my Summer of Techniques classes this month as well as my usual Card Buffets so I hope that you will join me. If you sign up for a workshop and you bring a friend who has never been to one before...your workshop is FREE! Isn't that get to hang out with a friend and stamp for FREE! (up to a $15 value, and your friend pays full price)

Okay so for today's card took the inspiration from something that I saw in a magazine and I just had to make something similar because I thought it was just so darn cute! And Voila...
