Full of Gratitude & More Blog Candy!

ThanksgivingThis week started off with a promise to give blog candy all week and as promised I’m showing you that I am truly Grateful for You.

I love the bright Fall colors in the Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper. The colors blend very well together and talk about complimenting each other.

I’m semi-colorblind and I must say, this is a stack of paper I can not go wrong with regardless of what color my brain thinks it sees. LOL

TIP: If you don’t have a particular shape, like an arrow punch… improvise! I cut out the arrow with the Burlap

This gorgeous bright beautiful card is a sketch challenge brought to you by The Creative Challenge Clubs.

 Grateful: For You and Where We Go in the Next Chapter


I found out on Monday that I will be retiring from my 25 year career in the United States Air Force. As I read the letter I had flashbacks of my first day of basic training… more to come!

As I prepare for my retirement, I’ll be revving up my demonstratorship with Stampin’ Up! and I’m hitting the gas pedal hard this week. The next three days will determine if I have to go back to getting a full-time job like so many other retirees.

Here’s how I plan on moving forward…

Keep reading and find out how to claim them.

But first let me show you my simple, yet cheerful Merry card.

Less Is More: Classy Without the Bells & Whistles


One word. Merry is all you need to say it all this Christmas season. Often many feel that in order to send a holiday greeting it must have tons of glimmer and sparkle, but that’s not the case.

Do you have males in your life (family, friends, co-workers) you’d love to make a Christmas card for, yet don’t want to give him the swirls and curls of a girly card?

I bet he won’t even notice that I used ribbon. Ha! The Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon is strong enough for a man, yet ridiculously delicate for a lady… LOL.

The Deals: They Start Now!


Here’s the real deal, TREAT YOURSELF THIS HOLIDAY SEASON! The Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit is ON SALE! I can’t express it enough that 25% off a starter kit is unbelievable. You get $125 in product for $74.25 and you too will get 5% cash back on ANY personal purchases or sales you make in December. Get the details HERE

Down to Business: Claim Your FIVE Santa Curvy Boxes

Products Used to Make Card:



You Are Charged…

Ben Sheriff

Every little boy I know wants to become a super hero. Everything from Batman to Ironman.

But the little boys in my (extended) family want to be a Sheriff, just like their daddy.

Well, you can Deputize them and make them feel like they are the real thing!

The six point star will certainly bring a little bit of reality in their little lives.

Let their imagination run wild as they hoop and holler looking for the bad guys.

Heck a pair of plastic handcuffs can even finish off their fantasy.

Believable Badge: Gold Colored Rhinestones

Or you can make them silver, just don’t forget to write or stamp in their name. You’re not a Deputy Sheriff until your name is etched into the badge.

Make an extra badge so they can wear it proudly as they go around arresting the family dog, cat, or little sister/brother.

The most lovable smile you will have on your face will be when you are watching your son, grandson, nephew, Godson, etc. wear his badge proudly.

Boy Child Deputy

With Not Having This Stamp Set

Not having the Yee-Haw Photopolymer Stamp Set? Don’t let your favorite little guy arrest you.

LOL It is one of the most versatile stamp sets and it works for not just your favorite little boy, but your cowboy or cowgirl fans as well.

Can’t think of what design to use with the stamp set? Grab the E-book I sent you as a subscriber to come up with a sweet simple design.

Many Merry Stars & Added Bonus!

Many Merry6Many Merry3Today I’m going to SAVE you time in the future. What!? Yes, that’s right. I can save you time and I’m going to tell you how below.

But first let me tell you that I have an added bonus that I know you’re going to love!

Who doesn’t love cute famous icon? Go on, keep reading.

Free Time: Rare and Precious!

Two years ago Karen Salmansohn wrote that we should probably rename “free time” as “priceless time” because, sure, yes, it is free — but more so, it is rare and precious!

I’m here to tell you that at tonight’s craft class I saved my guests time that they’ll get back in the future. I know I know, you’ve already asked me twice, “how can that be!?”

Here’s how…

Kits: Do It Yourself Miracles

No, these are NOT two separate 3-D box star ornaments (watch the video below and you will see what I did). At least that’s what I’m going to use them for. This year my goal was to give my friends ornaments as gifts for their trees, something that will remind them of our friendship.

Since I’m crazy for paper crafts, this Many Merry Star kit is my go to kit. Great thing about it? I only need ONE! Well, unless you have 25 friends whom you want to gift one to.

I’ve gone one step ahead of you… click HERE to see more ways to use the kit.
