Brand new stamp set coming in the Occasions Catalog…From the Herd. I must tell ya that the moment I first laid eyes on this stamp I WAS IN LOVE! If you have had the chance to ever talk to me or if you remotely know my personality you already know I am the GOAT! OTFLMBO
I can’t wait until you see the entire set because you can make birthday and get well cards with this one.
MAGGIE MADE THOUGHTS:
- When using the same or like Blendabilities colors (don’t fight it or be afraid), just make object slightly darker than the other. Can you see the difference in color shading? Told ya! I used the same color on the Lama and the Bison.
Keep on the look out and mark your calendar for January 6, 2015. Not only will the new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure will debut, but last years product will be on sale on my Retired Product Sale on Facebook. Join it now and don’t lose out on that stamp set you missed out on.
Stampin’ Up! Product Recipe:
I seriously hope the stache framelit is carried over in next year’s annual catalog. I love it so much that if it is retired, I am NOT going to sell it on my Retired Sales page on Facebook. However, last years Occasions product will be posted on January 6th. Keep an eye out for it.
I’m emotionally attached to the stache. I have never known my dad without his mustache and it reminds me so much of him. So if you want it, I highly suggest you get it now. If it’s not retired next year than you have nothing to lose. LOL
MAGGIE MADE THOUGHTS: Simple Suggestions I Use
- Cards don’t all have to be fancy dance to be cute. Just add a black border to any stamped image and boom… instant classy look.
I have put an Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration brochure in the mail to all my current customers. Hope the new stamp sets give you some inspiration.
Stampin’ Up! Products Used:
Thank you so much for visiting me today. Have a blessed day!
Today’s two cards are simply to show you how quick and easy you can stamp a THANK YOU card to anyone. Like many of us, I always need them, but fail to make a few to have on hand.
But I just ordered a pack and I’m going to stamp all 20 of them this week, so that I can put one in the mail for all of you who so graciously choose me as your demonstrator.
Have a fabulous day my friends… you certainly make this a better place for me.
Stampin’ Up! Product Recipte:
I’m bringing Crazy, Mixed Up Love back! I’m so glad this stamp set is still available in digital format. I’m going to tell you why in a moment, but first I will tell you that we have the best digital software for recreating a stamp from the past.
It’s called My Digital Studio and you can get a FREE trial. My favorite thing about Stampin’ Up! is that even after a stamp set retires it’s often still available in digital format. That’s how I was able to make this sweet card. Now on to my story.
TRUE STORY: You Can’t Make This Up
I received an email from Joe (aka Yossi), a very thoughtful gentlemen (from New York) who is surprising his girlfriend (Estee) with a special gift. Can you guess what it is? Maybe Joe will stop by and tell us what he got her.
To personalized his card, I placed the letters of both their names inside the blender because they blend well together. Isn’t that cute! It simply warmed my heart that he took the time to find her the perfect card. You can see the original card here.
MAGGIE’S THOUGHTS: Simple Suggestions
- When snipping out images use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them off the card to give it a little 3-D action.
- If your image has a large portion that is a dark color, stamp it in different color and snip it to make it to come to life.
TODAY’S SPECIAL MESSAGE:
A shoutout to Estee on her birthday, enjoy your special day and know that your one of a kind card was made especially for you. You are definitely special. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Stampin’ Up! Product Recipe:
Welcome to the last Pals Blog Hop of 2014. This month we want to help you start your holiday wish list by sharing projects featuring our favorite Stampin’ Up! papers, stamps, tools and accessories. Get your wish list ready as you move along through the blog hop.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Nancy Gleason at MyStampinSpace on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the project.
My all time favorite paper is the Under The Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Why? Because it’s thick enough to make perfect boxes, yet thin enough to keep its fold!
The box stays sturdy and you don’t have to worry about it falling apart easily. I didn’t bother with decorating it either because it’s already nicely printed.
To make this gift a special treat, I added three vanilla scented tea lights that are sure to make a lovely office gift. Do you give your office-mates, bingo buddies, bunko circle, or stampin’ friends little gifts like this?
The next stop is Debbie Crowley at expressivelydeb… on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you in 2015.
