Who likes a SALE – Clearance RESTOCKED!

 

 

Who likes a SALE….YOU DO!!!

 

I know if we both do this crafty addiction that we all seem to have – a deal is a deal so why not take a peek and see if you have some retired favorites to snatch up!

 

The CLEARANCE RACK has been restocked

with some newbies….so take a peek and see!

 

I just did a quick peek and right off the bat…the goodies that hit my simple button are the 6 X 6 Designer Series Papers in the classic stripes and polka dots for just $4.40 each! (There are all of the collections Subtles, In Colors ……)

The other one that I adore are the Stripe Treat bags for just $2.20!!! To me, a classic way to present a goodie is a win-win for me and also I have an idea for the holidays that was using in these bags and I was fearful that I might not have enough! PROBLEM SOLVED….for just $2.20 – I am a happy stamper!

The other item at a glance that tickled my craft bone was the White Gable Boxes….these are GREAT to add some DSP to…..make a tag and YOU LOOK GREAT when you share a gift…some candy etc….to whomever. If any of you make holiday candy and are always looking for a great way to present them….well – here you go! I like to use a small bag…put my candy in and then put it in the gable box!

Well….I could go on and on with ideas for you in how to take advantage of this re-stocking…..but I need to place my order as once they are gone…..WELL….THEY ARE GONE!

Have a great day and have fun shopping the sale!

 

 

 

Are you ready for these next months to ZOOM!

It is finally here…..and I am finally here!

It is time for the Holiday Catalog to go live and it is a super fun one!

Am I the only one that has a wonky week when a Holiday falls on a Monday or a Friday? I needed to have my head examined as on Monday I told my local corn man that I would take 200 ears of corn on Wednesday…..

What the heck was I thinking about….as that was CATALOG LAUNCH day and I need to make sure all of my “I’s were dotted and the T’s crossed) as it is a bit tricky making sure that you ordered all of the Product Share requests!

Below you can click the catalog image and have fun flipping away. There are PLENTY of things in this simple minded stamper that I will be playing with!

I think that there is a bit for any style of crafter and it is always super exciting to see what everyone likes! Sometimes there are sleepers in a catalog and then sometimes there are items that we all know will be super popular!

 

I think one of the popular ones that zoom out the door will be the Advent Calendar (page 38). I have not ordered it yet but I have all sorts of ideas to make that in my style. I love the concept and I have seen the product and it is SUPER STURDY……and the size is just great!

I am not personally a fan of the stamp set that they show with it but I know I can “jazz that puppy” up to make my family and friends smile. I know that this ALWAYS HAPPENS EACH YEAR….we have intentions of doing a project like this….but then that TIME FACTOR squeezes in and we cave in and say….I do not have time!

I say – set a plan and MAKE THE TIME & EFFORT to make one! I bet when you see what I do with it…you will smile – I plan  to get together with my stamping friends….Jeanie and Ramsey and we are going to see what twist we can do….

 

Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog

 

Let’s chat about the Designer Series Paper….it is BINGO-BANGO…..as it will take you all seasons long in using the “FLIP SIDE” but I have a hunch that the Holiday Sides are so classic…that you will use them up! I am giddy about the Wrapped in Plaid, Brightly Gleaming and the Let It Snow Collections….just tooooo cute and classic!

There are just soooo many things going on with Stampin’ Up! that it is hard to keep up with and digest! Below I have highlighted a couple that might just tickle your fancy! Take a deep breath and try to digest it all….


 

 

I do not subscribe to Paper Pumpkin on a monthly basis but when I have a hunch that there is going to be a cute and festive 3D one…. I HIT THAT BUTTON and did it for 1 month to get the Halloween Offering. I do not know what it is but I can imagine that it is going to be super cute!

Heck, the Halloween selections in the NEW Holiday Catalog are stellar and I am sure that this Paper Pumpkin offering will be no different! Please remember….you can just GET THIS KIT and then BE DONE….that is what I will do – and then if I find another month that I might like….I just purchase it again for that one specific month!

 

 


 

The BUY 3…get 1 FREE DSP Offering is back this year – just remember that it is only good until Sept. 30th….so take a peek at the offering and here’s a great idea….go together with a friend and split the paper!

I know that we all have so much “STUFF” but when there is a good deal, it’s hard to pass up! Below you will see the DSP’s that are included in this sale!

 

 

 

Well…..there you go – some scoop of exciting promotions…and speaking of exciting……guess what came this afternoon……my UPS man and several boxes of Product Share goodies….

I always bite the expensive bullet to get expedited shipping for things that take a bunch of time for me to sort etc……so you know what I will be doing…..YEP…..getting yours shares sorted!

Have a great weekend….we have a break in the heat and humidity and that makes me a HAPPY CAMPER STAMPER!!!

 

I’m back & It’s Holiday Product Share time!!!

Do that dance….I am back!….and I have your Product Share Scoop!!!

 

I do not know what you might be happier about….the fact that I am back and blogging….or that it’s that time again….PRODUCT SHARE TIME from the Holiday Catalog and trust me, this will make you skip with joy as there are some super cute products in this catalog!

First…I must say – as I scrolled through emails I would see subject lines of….“I miss you”….”Are you ok?”…etc and I deeply thank you! I literally have a ca-zillion emails to go through but as I learned on the trip….Rome wasn’t built in a day….and one by one….I will plug through the emails!

I feel like I have been stretched between 2 continents…and heck, I kinda – sorta was! John and I added 5 days before the cruise and then a full week after the cruise so we were gone a super long time and it was great! I think I will share a bunch of pictures I took for you to enjoy as it was just a beautiful time!

I must have caught a cold on the plane coming home…and was sick for a week….

Then….we had a bunch of old landscaping ripped out and re-planted….there goes another week….

Then….I had to clean and get ready for a mini retreat at my house that was fun…(over the top fun) and that ended yesterday!

WHEW – I have been busy but I am here for you today!

I have so much to catch up with you on….but let’s get to the Product Share Offering! (I also saw many emails with subject lines of….Are you doing a Product Share?”….and by now you know that I love doing the shares and yes….here are the offerings!

I was able to pre-order and I already have the DSP swatch books cut and ready to rumble….and the new DSP Offerings are STELLAR…..in my simple stampin’ opinion! We have 8 new DSP’s for this catalog and they are just beautiful.

There is only one that I was not crazy about as it has the photo images on it…but I flipped the paper over and I fell in love… as the flip side is all soooooo classic with White and Silver patterns that will not only take you through the holidays….but also all year as there are stripes, polka dots etc….SU really nailed the paper and in a nut shell….I am THRILLED with this new catalog!

This catalog goes live on Wednesday, September 4th (I am tickled that it is on HUMP DAY as I will be able to expedite the order and have the weekend to work on it) It is always my goal to turn your product shares around to you within a week of me receiving “the goods” from Stampin’ Up! I take great pride in my shares and I know that you will love this offering!

 

Naturally the easiest share to order is the I WANT IT ALL SHARE…as there is nothing like making it super easy and knowing that you are getting the ultimate buffet of new products!  = ( You are a Smart Stamper)

For the “SMARTIES” that are ordering the I WANT IT ALL SHARE ….I will add a pack of the NEW Black Stampin’ Dimensionals Combo Pack!

Yep, that’s right…..Stampin’ Up has the popular dimensionals now in Black and the other GREAT THING IS….it is a COMBO PACK…so you will get (2) sheets of the mini’s and also (2) sheets of the regular size!!!

 

 

The I WANT IT ALL is $101.50 plus the shipping of $7.65 = $109.15

( I know…I know – you could have added it all up yourself…..

but remember, you will also receive a full pack of the new Black Dimensionals!!!)

The Foil Sheets and Glimmer Paper are the Holiday Sparkle that we all love. Speaking of loving….remember, the Stampin’ Up! Glimmer Paper was reformulated several years ago so there is NO SPARKLE RESIDUE coming off the Glimmer….(aka – no glitter falling all over the place)

Shipping Charges:

This part of HAPPY MAIL is always a pain 😥 but I do my very best to offer you the BEST OPTIONS that the dear old Post Office gives to me…..like many things, the prices on Priority Mail have gone up this year but it is the best way to ship….very fast and very efficient.

If at all possible that I can use bubble mailers and it is not over the 13 oz. limit, I will use them… I guess you can say…the moral of this postal story is….I AM VERY FAIR in making sure that you get the best possible rates with the best service…as I know how important it is! (just ask my ladies at the Post Office….I drive them crazy but I also shower them with goodies!!!)

 

SHARE #1Swatch Books only – $3.00 (Order 5 sets or more…shipping is FREE – I have many SUD’s order them for Club Members/Customers as they truly are a fabulous too)

SHARE #2  – DSP Papers  –  $7.65 (That is the USPS Priority Mail fee)

SHARE #3Holiday Bling Papers – $7.65 (That is the USPS Priority Mail fee)

SHARES #4  – Ribbons – $4.00

Share #5 – Embellishments – $4.00

SHARE –  I WANT IT ALL – $7.65 ( I feel confident that I can get everything in a Priority Mail Envelope)

 

****PLEASE NOTE – if you are getting ANY combination of shares that includes share #2 and/or #3….the shipping is a flat $7.65….as the paper will only fit into a Priority Mail Envelope…..******

***If you are ordering multiple shares….I will combine your shares to help with the cost of shipping….but just know if you are ordering either the share #2 (DSP) or the share #3 (Holiday Bling) – they automatically fall into the flat rate of $7.65 (aka…the Priority Mail Price as that is my only option for shipping paper at the 6″ X 12″ measurement)***

If you have any questions about your shipping price….please email me and I will be happy to help you out. I know it is confusing and trust me….I get confused myself!!!)

 

THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT IN HELPING ME….

 

PLEASE CLICK HERE (this should be just an email to me back) and put in the subject line – NEW CATALOG PRODUCT SHARE so I can SPOT IT and let me know what share numbers you are interested in.

Please put in your email request for shares your NAME & ADDRESS (pretty please) so all I need to do is copy and paste it to get labels ready before September rolls around! I will start billing via Pay Pal on Sunday September 1st.

If you would rather pay me by check, please email me and we can work it out! I have several customers that prefer writing a check…so please feel free to reach out.

 

WHEW……that was a BUNCH TO PUT TOGETHER but I think that you all know that I love to be as clear as possible with the Product Share offerings! I thank you for hanging in there and please shoot me an email and let me know if you want a Product Share.

I will only be doing 1 Holiday Product Share so please do not wait to order. I will be traveling to Texas later in September to an annual retreat that I go to so if I were you…..I would order your share now!

Hugs to all and I will be back to share with you some pictures and happenings of what I have been up to!

 

 

 

 

 

WOOT-WOOT! Clearance is EXPLODING!

 

Good Morning!

I am doing a POP IN to let you know that the clearance rack has been stocked with something that Stampin’ Up! has never done….and that is to add

 

STAMP SETS to the CLEARANCE RACK…..

 

YEP, that is right and by now you know that I POP on and SHARE NEWS that I believe in and also NEWS that will continue to help you have “great basics….KEEPERS” in your stash!

 

 

 

Before you get “click happy”...(ha-ha…as I know what happens with the ease of clickin’ shoppin’)…take a DEEP BREATH and ask yourself….does it tickle my heartstrings….can I envision projects using it….Just because it is ON SALE….doesn’t mean that you just HAVE TO HAVE IT!

I know to some, that statement may come as a surprise…but I hope that you know that my goal in doing this wonderful thing that I do….is to

 

INSPIRE YOU…EDUCATE YOU….and let the authentic ME be your guide…

 

So….with that said….you can CLICK HERE to see the CLEARANCE RACK in all IT’S GLORY….I scrolled through the offerings this morning and I have picked out 6 stamp sets that will always be on Randall Lane….as they are KEEPERS!

Several weeks ago my sweet friend Jeanie came over as she wanted to borrow a stamp set that I thought I had….when we were doing a search and rescue I said to her….these are the stamps sets that I have separated that I will not part with…..she was shocked as there really were not as many as you would think I would keep….and YEP, these stamps below are a part of that keepers!

They are in no particular order….well except the 1st one….as to me…THIS IS THE PERFECT STAMP SET and one that was soooooo overlooked when it was out! (heck – it was a limited edition offering so this is even SWEETER that it is on sale!)

 

 

 

 

This card is probably easily on the top 3 of my favorite cards that I have ever made….This stamp set was a limited edition one…and I adapted the card from a CASE from Mary Fish…and is screams my name!

 

It is CLEAN….it is CLASSIC and it is a KEEPER! (simple as that!!!)

 

I always have several of these on hand …and then when I need a quick card that is beautiful…I just stamp the sentiment that is appropriate for the occasion….and BAM….I know that I will make someone smile!

It is a breeze to whip up in any color combination with the help of the STAMPARATUS….now listen crafters…if you do not own a stamp positioner….than before you spend any more money on this thing that we do….than YOU NEED THIS !

I have them all…the MISTI, Tim Holtz….yada-yada…but when SU came out with this tool, the STAMPARAUS…..they hit it out of the park! If you have another brand…great but having a stamp positioner in your stash is just a necessitty!

 

 

 

WHY??? Nothing more to say than WHY NOT….it is the best!

 

 

 

 

WHY? I adore the FONT and the sentiments are just super!

 

 

 

WHY? These are just the CUTEST Snowmen EVER and that font….LOVE IT!

 

 

 

 

WHY? A classic and one that was a sleeper to many…it goes past the holidays!

 

 

 

WHY? Again, the sentiments (classics) and the images are a breeze to color!

(this would also pair beautifully with the NEW BUNDLE we have….the Free as a Bird Bundle)

 

 

 

WHY? This is the PERFECT….classic Fall Stamp Set that one could own!

 

 

Well…there you go! I quick POP IN and share my thoughts! I am honestly in the same boat that you are in….the boat of…HOW MANY STAMPS CAN WE POSSIBLY HAVE BOAT! Trust me….I get it! ( you should see how many stamps I need to part with)

It is for this reason that I only share with you products and ideas that are true to my heart….

It really pains me to hear people spend money on products that they look at and now say…..why did I buy that???? and you know what – I GET THAT as well as that is exactly what I always did when a new catalog came out.

I have really, really cut back in my purchasing of Stampin’ Up! Stamps that I get on a whim as I think they are cute….please buy what speaks to you…and what is practical for your style!

In closing….the next time I pop on I will share with you the ADORABLE notecards that I made with the Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes…I just love them and these will be my FREEBIE to YOU for any orders of $75.00 or more.

Please use the Hostess Code of XGQWVURP to your order and I will send you a pack of these sweet must have notecards! (The current Host code is ALWAYS to the right side bar of my post, just copy and paste it)

 

Here is the easiest way to get to all of THE GOODS…..

HIT THAT PAW PRINT BELOW and then go right to the Clearance rack!

HAVE FUN!!!!

Order Your Product Shares today!

Hello and Happy Friday!

Debbie ???? and Alyece Garrett

Than you need to push that chair back and put up those hands and get shakin’….do that dance – that good old HAPPY DANCE as you just won a set of the DSP Swatch Books from the NEW Catalog (a $27.50 value)

I say WOOT-WOOT as this is one product that I would not be without while I am creating…not only is it super helpful…it eliminates having a BUNCH OF PAPER out trying to figure what to use! Below are the comments….email me your address!

 

I will not be able to mail them to you until the catalog goes live (June 4th) as I do not have all of the paper to cut the swatch books (I only have 8 out of the 11 offerings) but as soon as the GREEN LIGHT is on to order….they will be on their way to Randall Lane!

If either of you are getting more shares….and if you want the I WANT IT ALL….(as let’s face it….we are crafters and we love our shares) I will simply deduct the $27.50 from your order!

 

 

 

Now to the Product Share offerings!

 

I know many of you have ordered Product Shares from me for years and you know that I just love doing them. Trust me, I know the excitement and sheer fun it is to go to that mailbox and see HAPPY MAIL filled with NEW GOODIES!!!!

WHEW…that is IT – well almost….

please look below to see the ADD ON OFFERINGS to the super popular product I made up last year!

 

The Shipping Charges follows the Add-Ons! If you are totally confused and/or have a question, please email me and I will get back to you!

 


 

Add on Product Share #1 – Stock Swatches on a Ring – $10.00 

(THESE WILL HAVE THE NEW IN-COLORS…see below for Add on #2)

This item below is like opening a BAG of POTATO CHIPS…..Once you start eating….you cannot stop! This IS a lifesaver! I had so many people order these last year and when I said – are you sure that you just want 1 as the shipping is the same for 2.…and I received comments of….no….one is great!

Then just about a week later I received another email from them saying…darn, I should have ordered 2!Once your friends see it…they just need one as well! I have many Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators order a BUNCH of these and then offer and/or sell them to customers that come to classes and workshops etc….it is a FAB-O tool for this little crafty thing we do!

I keep one at my work area…1 in my travel bag and also 1 in my pocket book so if I am somewhere and I see a DSP paper that I love….I can quickly reference to the Stampin’ Up! Colors so I know I can have a great match!

I have had many demonstrators order these as a “kick off” for the new catalog and we are having the wonderful color revamp….some have also just purchased a BUNCH at once and then have customers/downline reimburse them as if you order 10+ the SHIPPING IS FREE(if you purchase these in 10 +, I will adjust your shipping when I bill you)

 

 

 

 


 

Add on Product Share #2 – The 5 NEW IN-COLORS to add to your ring. – $1.50

(THESE ARE THE NEW IN-COLORS…to add to your existing Ring)

This is the BEAUTY of this product….whenever Stampin’ Up! adds new In Colors…you can easily add them to your existing ring! There is no confusion to the In Color year as it is printed right below the color name!

The NEW In Colors are Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Purply Posy.


 

Shipping Charges:

This part of HAPPY MAIL is always a pain 😥 but I do my very best to offer you the BEST OPTIONS that the dear old Post Office gives to me…..like many things, the prices on Priority Mail have gone up this year but it is the best way to ship….very fast and very efficient.

If at all possible that I can use bubble mailers and it is not over the 13 oz. limit, I will use them… I guess you can say…the moral of this postal story is….I AM VERY FAIR in making sure that you get the best possible rates with the best service…as I know how important it is! (just ask my ladies at the Post Office….I drive them crazy but I shower them with goodies)

If you order #2 & #3 together, I will try my best to fit it in one envelope….but I cannot promise that – I will communicate and/or reimburse you if shipping is less than I expected!

 

SHARE #1 – Swatch Books only – $5.00 (Order 5 sets or more…shipping is FREE – I have many SUD’s order them for Club Members/Customers as they truly are a fabulous too)

SHARE #2  – DSP Papers  –  $7.65 (That is the USPS Priority Mail fee)

SHARE #3 – DSP Paper Collections – $5.00

SHARES #4 or 5 – These all should be able to go First Class Mail – $5.00 (could be less)

SHARE –  I WANT IT ALL – $12.65 ( It is super hard for me to tell how much I can get in the Priority Mail Box…so this is covering for 2 packages if I need to split the mailing up and again…I will make adjustments to you bill if necessary)

Add on #1 – The Shipping is $5.00 and if you get (2) Swatch Rings….they both will ship for $5.00 (Orders of 10 or more Cardstock Rings  – shipping is FREE)

Add on #2 – These will came in a regular envelope so the shipping is included in the $1.50 fee. ***If you need multiples of swatch add ons….please reference the quantity that you will need and then I can get to you with the shipping!

 

It is super hard to figure out the whole shipping game….so please reach out to me if you need clarity. I honestly do my best to make sure that you are getting the fairest price for the shipping.

 

THIS IS SUPER IMPORTANT IN HELPING ME….

BIG hugs to each and everyone of you and I thank you for your PRODUCT SHARE order! It is a labor of love but a love that does bring me joy in doing…I guess it’s that “happy place” for me in making you happy!

Scoop on John…he is going to have to have “his wing worked on”….or should I say that yep, he needs to have Rotator Cuff Surgery on his left shoulder and YEP…he is left handed!

The good news is that he can wait until we get back from Greece but he really needs to baby it as much as he can….he has several tears but it is simply not going to heal on its own without surgery!

What can we say but…OH WELL….I will put my Nurse Hat on and treat him like a King! (as he really is….just ask Millie and Alyece)

 

 

I am striking off of my TO DO list (slowly but surely)….but this Product Share is always a big one to pull together! Tomorrow’s mission….to go through my IN BOX of Emails……YIKES – we all know haw that piles up!

Have a wonderful evening and here is to a GREAT WEEKEND!!!! Don’t forget to double check the retired list….when they are gone – they are GONE!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No worries…Easter comes EVERY YEAR!

 

 

Hello and I hope that you had a HIPPITY HOPPITY EASTER!

 

I know this idea is late…

but read on and you can see how I will send you one…

plus a template for the future!

 

I know, I know….Easter is now over and I told you that I had a SUPER CUTE Easter project for you and even though the day is over….guess what – WE WILL HAVE EASTER NEXT YEAR!

Last week was a ZOOMER for us! We celebrated many HAPPY THINGS….the END of TAX SEASON…John’s BIRTHDAY and yep – EASTER! I had all of these pictures ready to share before Easter but that darn TIME THING with having to hen peck my way with the computer….got me!

I LOVE TO CREATE AND SHARE…but that typing up and editing always get to me….but the GREAT NEWS is…Easter will be here again next year and trust me, you want to make these as they are just a crowd please!

 

 

 

 

 

Yep, this one is a keep and I totally encourage you to make up one regardless if you have the sweet Reester Bunny….(they’ll be back as well next year). I made up SOOOOOO many of these gems and each and every person that received them just adored them!

I know that many of you do not care for 3D Projects but I say….pretty please with sugar on top…..give it a try!?!? I think as the saying goes….try it, you might like it! They are addictive to make and I cannot wait to shower you with pictures!

Where did the idea come from….SIMPLE – I cased and tweaked it from the one and only….PAPER PIXIE – Julie DiMatteo. If you are not familiar with Julie’s work…YOU NEED TO as she is not only super talented…but she is truly one of the most special young Mom’s I know. I can remember back when Julie became a SUD and how she was working so hard for table decorations for an event…..she was soooo tired but still had that wonderful smile on her face and that twinkle in her eye…she is just the best!

 

 

 

 

 

The GREAT NEWS is that I will be sharing with you the video that Julie made with the Reester Bunnies….but when I went to make them they were WEE BITTY ONES and I had already purchased these that I am showcasing!

Natural to Julie’s style…she helped me with the measurements to make it work for this guy! I honestly thought to myself….heck – those little ones are not even a full bite….let’s BEEF IT UP….so here you go……Julie’s Video and then after that I have all of the measurements for you to make it the size of mine!

PLEASE DO NOT LET this template sheet intimate you when you watch the video…it is not scary at all – TRUST ME and also I will share with you some tips and tricks that I used to make dozens of these little Bunny Men!

You better grab this Gingham Paper and the Punches….as YEP – they are on the WALK THE PLANK LIST….. (the links are at the end of the post) We do have some gingham coming out in the new catalog….but NOTHING LIKE THIS wonderful collection….this is a KEEPER!

 

 

 

 

 

Now for my tips and measurements for you! Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions…they really are super easy to make and the end result is just adorable! I had shown them some of my stampin’ friends…and they liked them – but when they saw them in person – THEY LOVED THEM…..just too darn tootin’ cute!

 

  • Cardstock needed for Box – 7 1/8″ X 8 3/4″

Score on ALL 4 Sides at 1/2″, 1 1/8″. 1 5/8″ and 2 1/4″

On the Short Side (7 1/8″ side) score at 2 3/4″ & 4 3/8″ just to the 2nd scored line and then ROTATE it to the other 7 1/8″ side and do it again! When you watch Julie do it – it will make perfect sense and trust me….once you do a couple – this whole scoring thing is a breeze!

 

  • Cardstock needed for the Belly Band – 7 1/4″ X 4 1/4″

Score at 1 5/8″ & 2 1/4″ and then ROTATE it and do it again!

 

  • The Gingham is 2 1/2″ X 4″ and that will fit right between the score lines – adhere.

 

  • Using the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch…Center it and punch out. It is AMAZING as this little guy fits perfectly and there is no guessing where exactly to punch the hole!!! I WAS DOING THE HAPPY DANCE WHEN I FIGURED THIS OUT!

 

  • As you can see in the photos…I took a coordinating cardstock color and popped out a ring to dress up the front a bit and that was super easy as I 1st used the 1 1/4″ Circle punch and then went over top that with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and PRESTO…..it works like a charm and SOOOOO FAST – this is where the punches are so much easier to use than the circle dies/big shot!

 

  • I also used a retired wee little flower to add some bling around the edges and used a white gel pen to make a quick accent. Using a simple glue dot did the trick and I am sure that you have something in  your stash that you could use if you do not have this punch!

 

THAT’S the SCOOP on how I took Julie’s original design of the mini reester bunny and made it to fit this guy! It is just the sweetest and I cannot tell you the rave comments I received from the people I gave them to!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can see clearly that you can use any color scheme but to me, this gingham is just the sweetest and again….it IS BEING RETIRED so I would snag some! FYI….I ordered more of the Gingham this morning and it says that it is on backorder…..so I KEPT it on my order as I really wanted it….

The best part is…you can keep the container and re-use it next year (that is if you can get it back from the person) but would you like to have one yourself? I cannot give you the Bunny as I bet they are already sold out from Easter Candy Clearance….but I sure would love to send you the sweet 3D project and also a TEMPLATE for you to have.

If you are anything like me…then having a template will help you in the future! I sure hope that you have a notebook and take time to write down ideas that you like to refer back to. We always say – I’LL REMEMBER…and then YEP – we waste a bunch of time surfing around trying to find it!

 

How do you this FREEBIE from ME?

 

Well easy – …shop with me this week….if you shop with me from today thru Friday the 26th and spend $50.00 + I will gladly send you this decorated cutie PLUS the template already scored for you to have on hand for the future!

 

THE CLEARANCE RACK WAS UPDATED TODAY

 

and also you have the enormous amount of retired products that need to find a new home! Below you will see the specific items used for this project for you to check and see if you have…and then if not – I would get them….as they are all basics….and you know how I love my basics!

 

 

 

 

Remember, if your order is $75.00+ with me…I will also send you the incentive for the month which is yep, another BASIC – a roll of Tear N Tape…call me simple but then call me practical! I know the things we all use and need! Please add the hostess code of UCWS9WDP to you order. (you will always fin the hostess code and incentive on my side bar of my blog.

Let’s have a great week and I think that is is super fair to say…..SPRING is here! We have been BLESSED with some amazing weather….so much so – I am hitting the publish button to go outside to have a date with the weeds!

Thanks for popping in and if you have a chance – please leave me a comment….I would love to hear how you liked this little dude!!!! Julie is the BEST….she sure does make me smile!

p.s. – If you are wondering where that sweet sentiment came from…??? It is from a My Favorite Things Stamp but we all know that there are other options that Stampin’ Up! has that would work. 🙂
