Sweet & Simple….



Good Morning and happy new week!


Last “Hump Day” did not happen because of “life” (my sweet Dad has been having some health issues) and then I typed up everything for Friday to hit the publish button….and POOF it was all gone…….I was super sad and just tried to shrug it off as I was away and just had to do one of those …..deep breaths….“OH NO” and not let it get the best of me….so the moral of this story is…..I have a cutie for you today!

These hanging basket images are from the Hanging Garden Stamp Set that made it’s Stampin’ Up! debut in the Occasions Catalog! I have been itchin’ to play with it as I knew that it would be a dream to color and today I used the Stampin’ Blends. This image would also be wonderful to use the Aqua Painter with and watercolor but the ease and speed of the blends is what I reached for today!






I used the super affordable Whisper White Notecards & Envelopes to create this sweet card. These truly are a great bang for your buck as you get 20 precut and scored cards & envelopes for just $6.00 and don’t forget…they also come in Very Vanilla!

I like this size of a card as they are a perfect size (3 1/2″ X 5″) to write a quick note. This size also make a fabulous gift to give to someone as a gift. I do not know about you but….if someone gave me some notecards like this….I would not only be touched…I would be doing the happy dance….(BIG time!!!)

You really do not need me today for this card…but hang tight…..you are going to get me as I have some measurements and ideas for you. I want you to look at this as a “formula”…hang tight and hear me out. You already know that the notecards are super affordable…I invite you to see the impact that paper and layers do to “make” this sweet card special.







Paper DOES make a difference and if you are not comfortable with using paper with layers….I encourage you to have a little chat with yourself….and do it! I know that there are many out there that cringe and say…I feel like I am wasting it. Trust me crafters….we waste MANY, MANY other things and do not think anything about it.

Remember….this is a craft, a FUN thing that we do….so why not make it special and just add layers! It truly is as simple as that as it is an extra touch that takes your card from….a great one to a WOW one.

The other key factor is the sentiment. Choosing the right sentiment also takes a card to a new level. You all know that I am goo-goo over sentiments and truth be told…I often purchase a stamp set JUST BECAUSE of the sentiment and this stamp set, Yay You is a perfect example of that!

This stamp set is a Hostess one…and it is only $10.00 plus it is a photopolymer…..a doubly whammy of goodness! I think that you can easily see the fun and unique stamps and sentiments in this set. I think that it is chocked full of uplifting and unique sentiments….something that we all need more of in this world!







Things to remember if you are going to be CASEING this sweetie….use the Memento Black Ink when using the stampin’ blends! WHY??? Simple – you need to use it because it is formulated to work with an alcohol based marker like the blends. I am giddy about these markers for many reasons but by far the first one is the ease and speed of them.

As I have said many, many times….I get it – you all see the $$$$ of them and are fearful that you would make the investment for them and not know how to use them….and then this one that I hear all of the time…..I do not know how to blend?

Here you go again….YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW HOW TO BLEND….how about this – give yourself a break and be gentle to yourself...just have FUN and color. There is NO BLENDING here at all with this card….I just colored and I had FUN!

Another thing to remember….when you use the blends – IT WILL BLEED through the paper, that it totally normal so you will want to make sure that you have a scratch piece of paper underneath so you do not ruin your work surface!







When you use an alcohol based marker you do not get lines of streaking like you would with the Stampin’ Write Markers. Please do not get me wrong, I have them and I do use them but I would never enjoy coloring with them like I do with these.

Think about it in this way…we all have shoes – we have some shoes that are just the favorites….that when you wear them you could walk and walk…and then there are others that you really like but they just aren’t as comfy…..that’s how I feel about the blends.

For me, coloring is relaxing. Do you remember when you were little and the excitement you have when you got to dive into a NEW box of Crayons? I can still remember the WOW that I saw with all of the pretty colors lined up and I was excited but I didn’t want to mess up the pretty box.

As kids – we got over that and played with the crayons and this is how I look at an alcohol based marker.They just open up a whole new world of fun and YEP, I am happy that Stampin’ Up! has them and I do hope that the continue to come out with more colors.







Right now we have 12 color families. Each marker has a light and a dark. The majority of the time…I just color with the light and if there are any “sketchy” black lines that the stamp has in it….I take the dark marker and use it where the black lines are….that’s MY LEVEL OF BLENDING….

It truly is as simple as that. I have shared with you that I have made the plunge of making an investment with Copic Markers as Stampin’ Up! did not have an Alcohol Based marker until now …and trust me – I have spent a bunch of $$$$$ with them but I can also say…..I do not regret it one bit as I love them.

I have 2 complete sets of the blends as I have one in my work area and another in a grab and go bag that has stamped images in it. I often take that with me if I know that I will be waiting (like at an appt) as practicing is the best way to get comfortable!

You can get the WHOLE complete set right now for just $99 and then pick 2 stamp sets that tickle your fancy……the ultimate bundle during Sale-A-Bration.I know that you get super scared when you hear the word or think about the concept of joining Stamp Up! so how about this….just email me and I will be happy to talk to you about it.



It is nothing more that you taking advantage of a sale.

Yep – all of the Blends for $99 ships for free and you pick any 2 stamps!



Over this past weekend…I spent time with 2 amazing women that also happen to be downline but more importantly, I am proud to call them friends. We stamped….colored….cut….played and just had fun! Below my sweet little Milo went with me and let me tell you….he is amazing….staying up late with us and hearing all of the laughter!







Unfortunately I have had some “trying times” over the past several weeks with my Dad and his health. He is doing better but I knew that I needed this time away and it was the best medicine a doctor could ever order. In reflection as I drove home….I felt very blessed that this wonderful little thing that I do…..called Stampin’ Up! has allowed me to meet people from all over.

In April….there are 7 of us going away for a fun getaway that you would think we are kids going to Disney. Yep, that works for me and I am super excited for our time together!

Back to reality and as I opened up my computer….I saw over 300 emails…..let’s all have a great day and please remember, just have FUN with the wonderful thing that we have in common…..making cards and making people smile.

It DOES make a difference and so do you!










I’m excited. It’s a keeper!



Hi all and Happy Hump Day! I have a card that will make many of you say. that is one great card! I knew that I was going to like this new bundle of a FREEBIE….but after playing with it…I can easily and honestly change the like to LOVE!

I do not think it takes a Rocket Scientist to explain the LOVE for this bundle as the focal basket stamp is beautifully drawn, the sentiments and fonts are sweet, clean and fresh and the embossing folder….an easy WOW! This bundle will be available starting on Friday as a FREEBIE for  Sale-A-Bration with a 100+ order.







Below you will see the images from the stamp set. When I open up a stamp set I always like to condition the stamp, make a stamped image sheet (this helps me know the feel of the stamp) as I think you all “get it” as every stamp can stamp a bit differently. I tuck this piece of stamped images inside the cover of my stamp set…making it easy for me to view it when I use it in the future.








There is really nothing hard at all about this card….as it is super straight forward using the “keeper classic tools” to create a super simple card. You know I say this all the time….getting the basic tools IS the way to go when you are creating as if you have the basics….things just come together….you can wait for the extra fru-fru’s!

The shape of this basket just took me to the size of a card that I adore, a 4 1/4″ Square! I just adore square cards and if you do not want to make your own envelope to fit it perfectly (it will require additional postage as all square cards do) you can simply put it in one of our regular A-2 envelopes and you are good to go with a regular stamp!








I pulled out my Stampin’ Blends and just chose 3 color families to use, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight. It was as simple as putting down the light color and then going back over where there are lines in the images….and swiping the dark color of the same color family. Nothing to it….these are a coloring dream machine!

Don’t you think this Spring Basket would be a perfect Easter Card? Really I think that you could stamp just about any sentiment (a Birthday, a Thinking of You, A Sympathy etc…) anything would go, that is why this stamp set is a keeper. For the inside of this sample, I chose to stamp the sentiment “You are loved” with the butterfly flying up!







I wish that this card was in your hands to see how using 2 different ribbon accents  on the basket….it is super cute (if I must say so myself) under the white small bow I added several threads of the Linen Ribbon…just a PERFECT little extra accent to showcase some additional dimension.

Another thing that I did with this card that take literally no time with a fun accent is that I scored on all 4 sides to the edge of the stamped image. Doing this simple scoring always adds a touch that will always be noticed! Don’t be afraid to pull out simple tricks – they do make a difference.








Now to the image that will make all of us say…..I WANT THIS! Well….let me tell you – YOU can get it and get it for FREE along with the stamp set with an order of 100+ starting on Friday when there will be some more kids on the Sale-A-Bration block…CLICK HERE to see the post that I did showcasing the newbies!

This embossing folder is a dynamic one….meaning that there is extra depth, extra detail that comes to life with a run through the Big Shot. Here is a tip that works so well when using embossing folders like this…spray a mist of water on your paper before you put it in the folder…it helps soften the fibers to make the WOW even stronger!

Look at the depth of this folder on the Crumb Cake shown below. I just had to show you a picture of the detail as I realize that it is hard to see in the pictures with the basket. Trust me, when it is in your hand you will see the little bit sticking out and you say WOW….where did that come from! It is just beautiful!







Well…there you go – a little sunshine and inspiration for your Valentines Day! I hope that your heart is filled with love on this “heart day” Today is also Ash Wednesday marking the 1st day of Lent……it is hard to believe that Easter will be here in 40 days!

I know by seeing a basket of Spring glory will bring a smile to you! I just love simplicity like this…right up my simple alley!

Have a wonderful day….my sweet little swine is getting some Strawberries from her Mama today…..my girl just love strawberries and heck – what do you get a pig for Valentines…….Strawberries work for me and it will be lip smacking good for her!






Just one “sweet” card!




This is my kinda card….sweet and simple that makes you smile! I know that you have heard me time and time again saying…It’s all about the basics….and YEP, I will say it again…It’s all about the basics!

I just love this card base….how about you? It is one of the FREEBIE options from Sale-A-Bration called, Tutti Fruitti Note Cards and Envelopes and they are just a breath of Spring to me on a blustery cold day like today! Guess what? Stampin’ Up is going to be offering more options for Sale-A-Bration……I preordered them yesterday so next week you will get a peek….(they are super cute)

Now let’s get back to that basics thing….look at the simplicity of this card….simple shapes with matting and DONE!. The sweet focal stamp is from the Flying Home Stamp from the Occasions Catalog. Images like this are super simple to color in and we all know we have many options in how we can color….today I used the Stampin’ Blends as they are hands down the fastest for me to do!









I have blogged about these Note Card before and you can click here to see that post….but one thing that I love about this offering is that you get 16 card bases and the coordinating envelopes are not only a FUN color but they have a great liner that coordinated with the Tutti Fruitti DSP Stack that is in the catalog….win-win!

Whenever you can get a POP of color in a simple way like this I say…..GO FOR IT as you can keep the rest of the card rather simple. The card base sets the tone letting the sweet floral and bird house POP!







Can you see what I did after I colored the image in? I took a white get pen and added some dots to the bird house and also some on the flowers! I know that it is hard to see but when you hold it….it does makes a difference – just a quick and simple touch that adds a bit of pizzazz!

Speaking of a wee bit of umph……I ran the So Saffron Circle thru Mr. Big with the Confetti Textured Embossing Folder before I adhered them together….another quick and easy way to add to a simple card!







Now to a stamp that I have honestly not seen blogged much of…..it is a Hostess Offering Stamp called Yay You….I say YAY because it is a photopolymer…..I say YAY as it was just $10.00 and I say YAY once again as I think that it is super simple and the fonts and Sentiments are YAY!

After I pulled this off the shelf I noticed the sweet little hearts…..you bet that they will get inked up this weekend as I plan to make Valentines and I call a little cluster like that a “filler” as stamps like this are perfect to add here and there to spice things up!








When I create a “fish tail” sentiment strip like this I like to do so on a much longer strip of paper….stamp the sentiment and then make a snip in the middle of the strip and then cut on either side to meet the middle cut…..

This is one of those silly things that we always seem to over analyze making sure the ends match perfectly etc…(sound familiar to anyone) when actually no one would ever notice…..you know my motto on making dots and dashes…..JUST DO IT!







One more peek at this sweet card and did you notice the inside liner on the envelope? Yep…just that little bit of crumb cake from the bird house pulls the whole thing together.

I think that next time I use this stamp I will do it with using the Aqua Painter for you to see the difference in the coloring. The one medium of color that I rarely use and know that I should give it some more love is the watercolor pencils…..I admit – I actually forget about them as my first go to os the Stampin’ Blends.






Have a great weekend and if you are a Super Bowl fan……well – I hope your team wins! We do adore watching big events like this as it always seems to be a great reason to have some yummy food…..so BBQ Ribs are our Football pick!

Stay warm….be safe and I hope that you can squeeze some “me time” in over the weekend and play with stamps and paper!  Below you will see the new Hostess Code as well as the Gift With Purchase for the Month of February……





Next week I am going to wow you with a fun post using and highlighting these adorable notecards & envelopes….You are going to agree, they truly are super fun and unique! It was an idea sent to me from a super de duper stamper and I loved it soooooo much, I had to purchase the stamp set that coordinates with it!

I just LOVE IT when someone enables me! Have a super fun weekend…….






A Masterpiece ANYONE can do!



Happy HUMP Day and I have a post for you that will bring COLOR to your world and trust me…..ANYONE can do this and the END RESULT is ALWAYS stunning with the help from our Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blends!

Yesterday I went to a Copic Coloring Class with a super fun team member, Ramsey…and we had a ball! I called our “continuing education” time together the best L.L.L. time together (Lunch, Learning and Laughter)….and while we were having some crafting fun naturally we chatted…..and naturally one topic came up about – Stampin’ Blends vs. Copics. I will share with you my thoughts….



Today I want to flood you with pictures that were all created with the Stampin’ Blends



I was doing the “happy crafting dance” when Stampin’ Up! came out with our own branding of an alcohol based maker last Fall….called  Stampin’ Blends! They are a great addition to our line of products. I hope that you can see with these pictures the beauty and vibrance of these markers and the best thing…..



The Stampin’ Blends match our Stampin’ Up! colors…no thinking – one bit!



Currently the Stampin’ Up! Collection of Blends have 12 of our color combinations available and I am hoping that they will continue to add more colors as we go forward. Below you will see the offerings as of now. We all know one of the KEY FACTORS of Stampin’ Up! that we all love is our amazing color coordination throughout our line of products! I know that many of you have a sticker shock with them but hang tight and read on!






Each color has a light and a dark of the color family. I think that the biggest misconception of these markers is that you need to know how to blend…NOPE….and guess what – This post is for YOU if this is your thought….

These markers are simply “dream machines” as an alcohol based marker simply glides over paper….with no start and stop marks (streaks) and just absorbs into the paper you are coloring. You can use our regular or thick whisper white cardstock. The important thing to remember is that you do need to use a proper ink…..Memento is a perfect ink for the Blends.

Later in the pictures you will see that the “bleed through” is totally normal so I suggest that you always have a scrap piece of paper under what you are coloring. When I am at home coloring, I always use the Grid Paper, (one of the most useful SU products we have) to protect your work area.






Do you remember that John and I went to Durham to help Hannah move earlier in the month? While we were driving I had a ball coloring these cards! When I pulled out my markers and got all settled in the front seat….I can remember John looking over and said, “You are going to try to color?”….I said – YEP…I think I can do it and SHAZAM…..I was able to do it with no problems!

For my monthly card kit I made this card as a thank you for the people that bought my kit. I just adore to color as it not only is rewarding, it is relaxing. I used a 4 x 4 piece of paper that is from the Petal Passion DSP which will result in (9) cards yielded from one piece of the DSP. This collection of paper is fabulous to color but this particular patten is my favorite.






I sat there with my trusty board that I like to color on and this container with all of my Blends in them. If you are wondering what the tape is on my markers….it is a way I can identify what set I have as I do have (2) complete sets of these. I really do love to color and I like to keep one in this container that I can just grab and go and the other set is up in my work area.





You can see that anything goes and that is the FUN part to me. I did NOT blend once and I think, they look great (if I must say so myself) All I did was color a section with the light marker within the color family and then took the dark one and if there was a black line in the DSP image, I would do a swipe with the darker color and THAT IS IT!!!

Below you can see a visual of a finished card…I admit, I love to mat….so the one to the left is my style of preference but truly….they are all super-de-duper with a HUGE WOW FACTOR and a card that would definitely make anyone smile!






Because I did 54 of these cards in the brights……I thought – what the heck….pull out the Crumb Cakes, Smoky Slates and neutrals (the Ivory and the Bronze) markers and give them a whirl…..below is the result and I still think that it is stunning! I colored the white background of the DSP with the Dark Pink Pirouette and the result – woot-woot!

I was a bit sad as I finished all that I had to do while driving to Hannah’s as I had no idea how long it would take….and I was a little toddler with her lower lip hanging down as I had nothing to do on the drive home…..






Now…..let’s go the contrast….my stash of Copic Markers…..I KNOW…I KNOW…I have a ton of them but heck, I do love crafting and I do love to color. After Stampin’ Up! had to pull the blendabilities several years ago (which WAS THE BEST DECISION) I had already caught the Alcohol Marker bug….

I continued my love and started with Copic Markers. These are fabulous markers but they are expensive. Actually….they can rang from around $5.25 to $7.50 a piece and the color range….endless – there are many, MANY more colors than what I have but I just wanted to show you my stash.

What can I say but I do love to craft and crafting truly is therapy and joy to me and the people that I have met along the way….PRICELESS!





When Stampin’ Up! reintroduced an alcohol markers I knew that I would still purchase them as after all, I am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator….and I do love the concept and feel of an alcohol marker.

The Stampin’ Blends ARE a fabulous product and Stampin’ Up! nailed it with their debut. When I am asked…which ones do you recommend…..I sigh as that is a super hard question to answer and guess what – you probably are not going to like my answer…..


I would get them all….


Yep, I do realize that it IS an investment but it is an investment that you will not regret. You can clearly see the investment that I have put into my Blends (2 sets) and also all of my Copics that I have but….heck, some people like to buy shoes….I like to invest in quality crafting products.

Now is the BEST time to get them all. We all know that Sale-A-Bration is the best time of the year with Stampin’ Up! and during Sale-A-Bration you can choose to get the complete set of Blends as your starter kit and just pay $99 and it would ship for FREE(that in itself is another savings of $12.50) plus you can pick ANY (2) stamps that your heart desires. (what would you pick)

There are no obligations what so ever to do anything other than enjoy your product, continue to order with a discount or simply get the deal and be done….please feel free to email me if you have any questions…..

My addictions in life are the 3 C’s – Critters, Crafts and Cooking….and I have fun with them all…please do not be fearful that you have to do anything like sell, teach or blog…..I adore hobbiest as I get it – you like to craft and you like a good deal……ME TOO!

Ready to get the deal now…..click here and you will be a happy stamper!






Surgery on Randall Lane…all is good!




Well…did I get you with the subject line? Yep, I preformed some “SS” (Stampin’ Surgery) with my trusty scissors to break up this foursome. I admit I was feeling a bit guilty as my eyes looked at their smiling faces but after the first cut …I knew I had to keep going!

I am sure that many of you are gasping and say….I could (or probably would say would) never cut up my stamps….and I get it (in a way) but when you can get more mileage out of a stamp I say….why not ….GO FOR IT!

I am on a Leaders Group where Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators share thoughts and ideas….and this is where I saw this idea. I immediately when to this stamp (and the 4 critters were screaming) …pulled out my trusty scissors…..put a good light onto the foursome and went to town right on my workspace! DONE – I now have 4 stamps but if I still want to stamp them together….no worries – just push together!!!









This stamp set, We Must Celebrate is in the Occasions catalog. I blogged using this sweet stamp earlier (click here) and I loved it then….and again, I love it today! What do you think? It is super cute and it can be paired with so many sentiments that I think you can see the mileage you will get from it!

Here is another tip that is great about this stamp…look at the little “filler” stamps as I like to call them…the confetti and the little leaf are both great additions to tuck and add here and there with projects. To me, fillers are the little extra touch that makes projects “twinkle” and make that lasting impression!

You can see with the product line up that this sweet card came together with 3 different stamp sets. I wanted to encourage you to look at what you have and use it in a different way. For example, the Heart Happiness stamp is a very classic and useful stamp as we know that a “heart” is a classic that can be used all year long but the minute I saw the 6 little hearts….BAM – I knew that they would be used just like I did today….floating up!







Let’s get to the real scoop and the tips and tricks that I did to make todays inspiration for you. I used a technique that I know seems a bit scary but actually it really is not – I simply masked the bear and raccoon. You know what I am going to say to YOU….



YEP, you need to practice…you just need to try!!!



When I mask I prefer to use a masking paper but you can easily use a simple post it note. The reason that I use a masking paper is that this paper can be used several times and I simply tuck the mask in my stamp set so if I want to do it in the future, my mask is ready to go.






If you are using a post it note…make sure that when you stamp the image…you are stamping on a part of where the “sticky is” as this is how it will hold tight when you “mask” and stamp the next image!

Below you will see a picture of the image sheet of the Stamp-a-ma-Jig….and yep, it is a critical part of making precision for adding my fellows! Because I used the “jig” I am able to see and tilt the critters to exactly where I want the next one to go. I think “tilting them a bit” adds a fun element.






I can hear many of you are sighing about the “jig” but it IS one of those basics that every stamper needs to have. I know that we do not use it a bunch but trust me, when you need it…it is not only a time saver…it is a frustration saver as with this simple piece of plastic…you can get PERFECT placement every time!

The coloring was a cinch with the Stampin’ Blends…these alcohol based markers make coloring FUN and don’t let that would “BLEND” get you in an uproar….you DO NOT have to blend when using them…just color if that is a comfort level to you….and if you want to blend…great – no rules…just do what YOU are comfortable with.







The best parts about these markers are that they color without streaks making simple coloring a rewarding experience and the other thing…they match our color palette perfectly, something that Stampin’ Up! does brilliantly! Make sure that when you use these that you are color over another piece of paper as the natural “bleed through” is a natural process of an alcohol marker!

Sentiment time…..where did this come from???? The Happiest of Days…which is in the good old Annual Catalog! I don’t know about you but….there are times (actually many times) that I feel bad for the Annual Catalog…..we all get soooooooo excited for it….it gets revealed to only have the Holiday Catalog steals its thunder and then the Occasion Catalog doing the same….remember – look in your stash and use what you have!

I have showcased this stamp set many time….click here and then click here….both some of my all time favorite cards…the simplicity of the open designs of this stamp make is great to create! Also…..the “jig” helped me make the placement perfect. (I know…many of you do not like this tool…but it really is not a bad guy)







A fun card like this can use a bold DSP to make the envelope shine. This is from the Tutti-fruitti DSP Stack, a fun and colorful pack! I admit, the picture does not do this pack justice as I think it appears super busy…but when you look at the paper (singularly) there are some fabulous finds….definitely a go to for my style of card making.









I hope that this post makes the start of your week with a beautiful smile on your face! I was super happy with it and I do encourage you to try your hand with masking. We all have sooooooo many stamps in our stash to mask with.

I will see you on Wednesday with another coloring fun project that I have been working on…..speaking of coloring – tomorrow I am having some “coloring therapy” with a dear friend that is on my team and we are doing some “continuing education” (I like the way that sounds…and John laughed when I told him) as we are going to a Copic Coloring Class. We can never stop learning and crafting…right????

I would love to send you this card and also this embossing folder…..they are my thank you gift for when you order with me this month. My current hostess code can always be found on the right side of my blog…but here you go to copy and paste – MGQ6RK9E….and please remember, I offer a very generous (well I think so) rewards program for shopping with me – it is a joy for me to send you freebies as heck – we all love a gift!






Stampin’ Blends Club…try it!



Good morning… the calendar is telling us we have a new month on our hands! November 1st with Stampin’ Up! is a super exciting day as today is the first day that you can order the new stampin’ blends!

I know that you have heard the buzz all over the Internet about these alcohol-based markers and I am simply thrilled that Stampin’  Up! is offering  them.

I’m a “gotta have it all gal” because when a collection comes out….I just want them all to take a test drive and have fun!


To me – coloring is fun, coloring is relaxing and coloring is rewarding!


Here is the Stampin’ Blends brochure for you to peek at. It will not only give you a super visual for the 12 colors but it will also give you tips on them.

In total there are (12) color families available and then (3) single markers to compliment…..(a color lifter, a bronze and an ivory). See the below chart to “visually” take in the beautiful array of the collection.






I shared with you that I’m a  “wanted all kind a gal” but I totally understand, realize and respect that it is an investment to purchase the entire collection.

Stampin’ Up has grouped them all together to be able to purchase as a complete package with one item number saving you a ton of time in having to choose each and every item number (I hope this makes sense)

You can click here for that link but you will see that there is no savings in getting the BIG KAHUNA….it is a convenience to purchase and move on without plugging in a bunch of numbers.

I know that getting the BIG KAHUNA is not an option for some so how about joining my Blends Club and spreading it out (blending it out!!!) over 3 months!





HOW??? WHAT???…..Click here and put in the subject line BLENDS CLUB and I will send you a hostess code and the colors of markers for you to purchase for that given month. We will do this for the next 3 months….November, December and January. You need to email me saying that you want in “the club” by November 10th.

Each month you will order (4) color sets and a single marker that coordinates with the entire collection….so at the end – YOU will own the BIG KAHUNA….breaking it down for you….you will spend $40.50 each month to be in the “club”


Each month I will send you goodies/support training that will help you navigate the “in’s and out’s”  of this product.


Here is a sneak peek of what I will send you for November….10 card bases and 20 overlays for you to practice with your blends and then I will send you a link for video support with tips and tricks! We will do this together as a group…so there will be support from others as well.







Now here is the other option you have….Life is FULL of options….and you know I like to put them out on the table for you…as I said, I am a I WANNA HAVE IT ALL KINDA GAL…..



I would get $99 starter kit and BE DONE with getting these blends!



You can get ALL of the Blends for just $99! You actually will have an extra $3.50 to spend and I would get white bakers twine ( #124262….just sayin’) to get the best bang for your buck!

Your Kahuna Blends would ship for FREE….(that is another $12.50 + savings) and you would not have to spend one more penny with Stampin’ Up!…YEP….promise!

It really is that easy. Nothing complicated…promise!



Yesterday I shared with you that I was away for a surprise….well, if it were not for Stampin’ Up! I would have never met these 31 amazing women that I spent 5 days with. The reality is that I love to craft…I love sharing fun and laughter with like minded people….but I am also one that like a deal….email me if you have any questions…..

I have said this a ca-zillion times before….it is soooo darn easy to be a SU demonstrator and there are no obligations to sell/teach…what you get from it is a discount each and every time you purchase something….and smile lines from the people you meet! 😆

I will see you on Friday….please think about me tomorrow as hopefully BLACK BEAUTY will be off for good!
