2021 Holiday Mini Kick Off

 Okay... Stampin Up! just released the August-December 2021 Mini Catalog, lovingly dubbed "the Holiday Mini" by yours truly! SUCH great things in this mini catalog!  But my FAVORITE is the Sale-a-bration Catalog because, well, it's all free with purchase!  HAHAHAHA!  Among my faves.... something you will NEVER guess because even I was surprised.....

Um.... the Penguin Playmates DSP!!!  i did say FREE with $50 purchase RIGHT???!!!  Now, I'm SHOCKED!  This paper is cute (quite adorable frankly), which isn't my style.  It is VERY Christmas-themed (I'm not opposed to Christmas but I tend to gravitate more toward Halloween and richer colors), but this is PINK Christmas!!!!  WHY am I obsessed with this paper?  Well.... HERE'S why!  

To be fair, this project is actually TWO of the free paper packs (I also scored the Peaceful Prints).  We're going to be featuring and making this super-uber-cute treat box, along with 5 other Holiday Penguin projects in my upcoming Christmas-to-go class and I'm over the moon excited!

Along with this incredible paper pack that I can't put down, there are other GOLDEN GEMS from the Holiday Mini Catalog that I will be featuring in the coming weeks (AHEM..... HALLOWEEN), but one particularly fabulous goodie is the Pretty Pillowbox Die set.  Now it took me a couple of tries to master.... but I have it.  I mean, I can whip these babies up in no time flat.  SOOOOOO.... I recorded a quick tutorial along with some of my tips:

Check out my online store to see more of the Holiday Mini AND the Sale-a-bration items on sale now and check back here soon for more holiday fun as we're kicking things off for 2021!!!  YAYAYAYAY

Here's to Breast Cancer Awareness!!! My project for this hop is a reminder card..."Remember your checkups!" What a wonderful way to say "I love you" to a dear friend or family member. Now you may not be able to see it in the pic above, but I altered The Greeting Farm's Ebony so that her tee shirt reads, "Say YES to Mammograms!" So, today I wanted to share HOW I added the words to her tee. First I printed the words as small as I could and still be able to read the message using my laser printer onto the paper that I would be using to color in my i
