Freebie Friday: Pressing On

Thanks again to everyone who joined me for Facebook Friday day!   This set you guys!  I.LOVE.IT.  Anyone who knows me knows I'm a freak for coffee and this set speaks to me on so many levels.... who couldn't use a little encouragement right now to "Press On"???  This week's Freebie Friday is ALL ABOUT IT!!!!     Remember, the project dimensions and supply list can be found in the free PDF.... I have the link below the third picture below.  You can get everything you need from my store at: And anyone who orders $35 or more from my store by midnight on 9/4/20 will get all three of these make n' take kits for free!                First project up was this AWESOME Magic Slider Card.  Masking of the "Full" in the sentiment and creating "Pull" using the Basic Black Stampin Write Marker... I'm sorry, but I just have to say I'm a genius!!!!  LOL!  And isn't it always fun to color?  On the "Open

And Here Lies The Problem With Stampin Up

  So I get THE perfect baby gift and I run to the wrapping isle of my local Target to grab the perfect "baby boy" wrapping paper just SURE I've got the perfect matching ink to make the accompanying gift and sure enough.... TEMPTING TURQUOISE!!!    The RETIRED Temping Turquoise!!!!  Stampin Up.... you and your amazing colors!  Dang you!!!  Your amazingly bold and incredibly opaque colors!  WHY do you vex me with retiring so many colors that are absolute staples????  If anyone else is a collector out there in blogland.... what Stampin Up ink color are you SO incredibly glad you hoarded??? I'm thinkin I might need to track down a refill for my Tempting Turquoise.  It really IS the perfect color for baby-shower-gifting.  

It's Almost Here.... Can Fall Just Get Here Already???

 I need sweater weather STAT!!!  But until that comes, I'm gonna just keep playing with my Fall-themed crafty goodness.  This week, along with a Gather Together honorable mention... I'm featuring  Stampin Up's Beautiful Autumn.  This bundle (stamps and punches) coupled with the Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper.... can I just say.... hand me my Pumpkin Spice Latte!  So here we go.  The PDF with the supply lists and measurements is below the last pic. Bonus.... in today's Freebie Friday live feed, we made this into the most perfect belly band for the new Rectangle Tins in the 2020 Holiday Mini. This picture does not do this card justice!  All the foiling makes this card down right shine! Okay... so I accidentally cut off the needed tabs during the live feed.... HAHAHAHA!  The directions were fixed in the attached PDF so we're safe!  Hopefully everyone appreciated my "troubleshooting" segment.  It was totally planned BTW.... on purpose on accident!  HAHAHA

Nothing's Better Than... A Timely Upload

  Okay you guys... HOW did I forget to upload last week's Freebie Friday PDF???  Yes, I'm a new Stampin Up distributor... but I want to believe that my following is so great folks would be ringing me non-stop the minute my "all-important" PDF post didn't post!  HAHAHAHAHA!  Welp... not a peep from anyone.  I figured it out just a few minutes ago while preparing THIS WEEK'S Freebie Friday upload.... "What the heck?!?  Where's last week's???"  I'm so sorry you guys!  As usual, I am posting the link to the PDF below the last pic.  If you missed it (which I'm thinking many of you had... because.... literally.... not.a.peep!), these are the OH-SO-FUN projects we played with LAST week.  Stay tuned for this week's Freebie Friday posting.  It's coming up next.  Last week's awesomeness featured Stampin Up's Nothing's Better Than and I'm tellin you, this set is a MUST HAVE!!!!  A couple of the projects were actually even

Gather Together Y'all!

 Today's Freebie Friday was a great one.  Not only did I massacre the perfect parcel box (we got it in the end... hahahahaha) which was hysterically fun, but I also got to teach my little template trick for the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.... getting it right every time!  😉 As always, this week's hostess code is QUUJASBY.  Use that code this week and all qualifying order of $35 or more will receive all three of the make n' take kits featured this week for free.  I'm also giving away a Wrapped in Christmas stamp set next week from the brand new Holiday Mini Catalog... so be sure to run over to our facebook group and share the video for a chance to win.  Not only will it be absurdly entertaining to watch me fumble with the perfect parcel box, but I shared quite a few tips that should make your crafting more fun!   One last thing... there is one week left to register for the Hallow's Night Magic Class.  There are 4 payment options, so if you're needing to still sig

The First Cut Is The Deepest

 Oh WOW you guys!  I am IN LOVE with this new Stampin Up Cut and Emboss Machine.  Y'all... this thing is C-O-M-P-A-C-T!!!!  But don't be fooled.... for such a small machine, it's actually a bit heavier than my beloved Big Shot.  While I loved my Big Shot, I do have to admit, this machine is smoother and feels VERY stable!  Honestly, the pic above is right before my first cut and it was so nice, I had to keep cutting.... just wait till you see all the incredible projects coming!!!!  I'm sort of obsessed with this machine. Here's a pic of it closed up:  It's not available for purchase just yet.... UNLESS.... you get a Starter Kit (click HERE to sign up for the kit).  The really cool thing about the starter kit is you get $125 of product for $99 + free shipping on your starter kit.  Why is THAT so cool, well... you get to pick the products (or in this case product) you want in your starter kit because this amazing gem is $120!!!!  That means you can get it for $99
