Extra Stampin' Rewards? Yes Please!


Have you noticed the latest Stampin' Up! Promotion?  I know my newsletter had something in it about this awesome deal, but I forgot to put it in a  Blog Post.  I'd best remedy that now!


You get an extra 3% in Stampin' Rewards when you hold a workshop or place an order with at least $400 in retail sales.  With all the goodies in the Occasions Mini, that doesn't take long, especially if you get together with a friend to combine your wish lists.  You can even use it towards the cost of a Starter Kit if you'd like to join my team!



I'm hoping to host another class this coming Thursday too so be on the look out for my email.

Can't Stop Making These!


You can never have too many pillow boxes, right?  I hope not, because they are seriously addictive to make.  Ever since my last class where we made one, I've been trying out different ways of decorating them.

The frame lit set comes with these cute Christmas trees and snowflake (there is a co-ordinating stamp set, naturally), and I've had fun lining them up and putting a bit of Window Sheet behind the cut out design.    Add a cute hand made tag, a bit of baker's twine or ribbon and you are done!

I've been hoarding these colourful jingle bells for a while; don't they look great as part of the packaging?

Pro TIP:  The Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot really helps the little tree framelits to line up straight! 

I also discovered that a strip of the Envelope Paper is an easy way to make a belly band around your box - and if you have a handmade card, you can co-ordinate the envelope.  Win!

I didn't realise until later that this ribbon is retired; however there's a very similar ribbon in the Holiday Mini!

The other things I can't stop making at the moment are these layered cards:


I just adore these edgelits!  I love how you can use the positive or negative, and the cute stamps that match just make my matchy-matchy heart sing.  

White on white looks crisp and clean, and Stampin' Dimensionals  add a bit of height without bulk.

Classic Green and red combination!  The green is the envelope paper again.

And, in case you wondered......
