Freebie Friday Cherish The Season

 Okay.... we're still a-go with the Christmas gifting preparation!!!  Today I'm featuring a pillow box made using the Celebration Labels dies as well as a really nice sized gift box and a pretty good sized gift bag all featuring the Cherish the Season bundle from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog.  As always, I've included a link to the FREE PDF download below the last picture so that you can get your hands on the product list along with measurements! And if you place an order in my online store using hostess code SHP69V34 by midnight on 11/6, I'll send you all three of these make n' take kits for free.... here's the link to my store: .  Here are this week's featured projects... As I said, this box is SUCH a nice size.  And because it uses the graphics from the Wonder of the Season DSP, it makes this box a snap.  This would have been SO COOL using one of the red foiled sheets with the recipes for the base of the box.  Havi

Freebie Friday Warm Hugs

 WOW you guys.... I don't typically jump on the Christmas prep wagon so soon, but this pandemic and new-found Stampin Up adventure has me wanting to make this Christmas holiday extra special!  We NEED that, right?!?  So this week I'm featuring more Christmas prep goodness with two cards and an easy gift box featuring Stampin Up's limited edition holiday bundle:  Warm Hugs.  To be quite honest I purchased the WHOLE SHBANG.... the entire suite of products that includes DSP, dies, TWO stamp sets, embossing folders, paper cups with holders, ribbon, embellishments... you get my point.... A LOT!  Now, if you're making a crazy amount of cards and gifts for Christmas, this suite is SOOOO worth the investment, but today we're just featuring the bundle in the suite:  Warm Hugs Bundle.  As always, the link to the free PDF with all the products used and measurements will be posted below the last pic in this post.... check it out.  Remember, any order in my online store using Ho

Freebie Friday: Festive Post

 Okay... so first off.... THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who puts up with all of my technical difficulties.  Techie I am not, but I DO love crafting and I love sharing and so here I am doing the thing and learning.  The funny thing is, I JUST ran across an old video I made back in 2012 that I did with an old-school camera and uploaded to YouTube.  I'll be sharing here sometime in the coming weeks... you guys are going to LOVE the "revamp".... STAY TUNED!!!  LOL!   But this week we are all about holiday preparations... specifically Halloween!!!  You KNOW I loves me some Halloween!!!!  Remember, the free download link will be posted under the last pic in this post AAAAANNNNDDDDD if you spend $35 in my online store using hostess code  7FHHJEE2 before midnight on 10/16/20, I'll send you EACH of the make n' take kits from this week's Freebie Friday Facebook Life post!  YAYAYAYAYAY!

National Card Making Day!

WOWOWOW... so this week I've got a twofer.  Mainly because I thought YESTERDAY was 10/3/20... you know.... NATIONAL CARD MAKING DAY!!!!  Welp, I added a little bonus for the REAL project I completed on this holy day and it is definitely a special card, so stay tuned to the end.   Remember... everyone who places an order in my online story by 10/9/20 at midnight will receive ALL of the featured project kits FREE with a minimum $35.00 order.  Be sure you use the hostess code  AQZYXVET  in order to receive the projects kits.  :) Okay, with that out of the way, I devote yesterday PRE- National Card Making Day to getting a jump start on my Christmas cards.  How many do you guys send every year? Up first is probably the easiest of all the projects.  Be sure to cut out that intricate Ornate Layer die using the folded dryer sheet to make it oh-so-easy!  Remember, I have a link to the PDF with measurements and product lists below the last pic in this post.... Another easy one and the paper

Arrange a Wreath Freebie Friday Fun

 Okay... so last week during Freebie Friday we featured some really fun cards.  OF COURSE I slipped in a little Autumn "thankful" card.... (the link to the free PDF download is under the last pic) One of the leaves and the acorn were LITERALLY punched right from one of the Gilded Autumn designer series paper pages.... the images punch out perfectly.  That made this project soooooo easy to complete!  And I think it's got quite a wow-factor for how simple it was. Now the NEXT project was a Christmas card using this oh-so-versatile Arrange A Wreath Bundle: Again... I kept it simple so for anyone getting started on their holiday card making, they can bust out 100 or so rather easily but with a seriously stunning design!  BUT THEN.... We made this super pretty Magnetic Wreaths using a 3" circle base and then attaching a square from a magnet sheet to the back making this a refrigerator magnet.  WELLLLLLL.... This girl just combined the two to make a SO-VERY-AWESOME gift/ca
