Can you believe it? July is here and this is a Holiday weekend for us as well! I don’t know about you….but – I think that the older I get, the calendar seems to be faster and faster!!! I am super excited for this weekend as 2 of the peeps will be a Home ~ Sweet Home! šŸ˜› 

With a new month, we have a New Hostess Code (you will always find the current hostess code on the right side of my blog but here it is.) If you place an order with my that is $35 + I will send you this card and if your order is $75+ you will get a double whammie from me, this card and the Festive Embossing Folder!

On yesterday’s card I used the Festive Embossing Folder and I think…well, I know that everyone needs to have it as it is a super fun addition. If you already have this folder (you are smart and have good taste) but no worries, you can just let me know what other folder you would like to have. I’m easy, I just want you to be happy! šŸ™‚

I ask you….did you just buzz by page 108 in the catalog with this below stamp set, Feather Together? I know I did but I swear that every time I sit and take in the catalog I see something else that I love, this stamp set is just that.

You might be saying why??? First, I love that it is a photopolymer. Second, I love the price. Third, I love the sentiments. Fourth, I adore the font.

I think the reason I passed it up initially was the fact that I was having a personal pity party that there was not a framelit for the feathers. I am over that and heck, if I want to cut a feather out…it really is not a big deal.(just saying)

It doesn’t get any more classic than this – I call this a keeper card and the best thing is….I would LOVE to send one your way! I have said this before but I adore when Stampin’ Up! has a DSP that coordinates with Very Vanilla.

This is what I think makes this card. I used the Moroccan DSP and I just adore it. Click here and then here to see a post I did before with this paper – I admit, I am not a huge fan of the Stamps that coordinate with this paper, (Page 67) but the paper, YES…YES…YES!!! šŸ™‚

A very straight forward card like this needs to be in your stash. I maximized the DSP by cutting “just enough” to get (8) cards out of one sheet of paper and there is still plenty to use for another project. By using a different paper in the paper pack, allowed me to still create a beautiful card with not using a ton of the same DSP.

Does that make sense? I encourage you to look at your paper before you cut it to see how you can use it to your advantage. Today, I used an accent color, Delightful Dijon to add length and interest to the DSP Banner and then with a simple bow – BAM – another focal point of interest – WORKS FOR ME!

Let’s have a quick chat about the super cute lines on the side of the paper. This fun dot border stamp is from the Perfectly Wrapped Stamp Set below. I bet you buzzed by that as well as in the catalog, page 159 as in the catalog it is shown with a kit. I have this kit but have yet to put it together but I sure have used this stamp set a bunch.

I will put the kit together and blog about it one day but I just wanted to point out not to over look basic stamps like this one! I am getting ready to make a BUNCH of cards to send to team members and you will smile when you see them, simple yet super classic and fun!

Below is your “file for the future” picture, pin away – a great was to have a visual of what brought this card to life. The BEST THING is….you can have this card in your little paws with an order. Now that is easy!!!

In closing, please remember that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY THAT I AM TAKING PRODUCT SHARE ORDERS!

Please CLICK HERE to see the post that has all of the offerings on it! I deeply appreciate all of the product share orders and I am so happy to offer them to you.

It is funny….as I work on shares I am happy, super happy because I know that you are getting the opportunity to have fun with the new product. That makes me happy because we do have so many great additions and being about to get a taste of this and that is simply the best!

If you are traveling, please be careful – I know that once peep #2 comes home I will sleep better. This is the first that Hannah has been home since entering the “real world” of having a job etc…last night she called and said, I am cleaning my apartment so when I get back, everything looks great for my work week! (I just had to chuckle inside as that sounds like me)
