Christmas Sales!

I just got back from being gone the week and I missed all of you.  It was great fun but I have to say that I miss my “work” and fellow crafters.  So let’s celebrate me being back behind my desk (crafting or blogging).

Get 15% additionally off any Christmas stamp set, embellishment, or ribbon.  If it says “happy holidays” (or anything similar) or is red and green from now until Tuesday night I will take off an additional 15%.  This is only through me and only available as an in-person order.  That means no online orders.  You have to contact me to get the additional 15% off.

I am available today and Tuesday via phone and any time via e-mail, text, or message.

To order online please use host code WUR7D3CD through Tuesday night.

Happy Crafting!

When Christmas ribbon becomes Valentine accents.

Don’t throw away your Christmas ribbon.  That red ribbon becomes a great accent for Valentine’s Day.  Start thinking outside the box.  Just about anything allotted for Christmas can be re-purposed for Valentine’s Day.  Remember to look sideways, upside down, and backwards at your supplies.

Happy Crafting!

How to emboss on foil cardstock.

Dry embossing on foil cardstock can be a little tricky unless you like the cracked, distressed look.  I found to take at least one of the cutting plates out of the stack or sandwich and shim it with a few pieces of cardstock works the best.  Basically when you start to push the stack through the machine you want your handle to barely move.  If your stack slides right through there’s not enough to make it work and if it is the regular stiffness where the handle really moves up then it will crack your paper.  The trick is to just get your handle to barely move.  I have had the best results of not cracking my foil paper this way.

I hope I am making sense to you but in case I am not…here’s the video link on how to create this gorgeous card.

Sundays are for getting back on track.

I sit here and realize I ate too many cookies yesterday.  My body is saying too much sugar yesterday.  So today I get back on track.  I eat right, clean up from the Christmas party yesterday, and get moving again.  Yesterday was so much fun but I am glad all the preparations are behind me.

Thank you to all that came out yesterday!  I hope you had fun and maybe even won a prize.  I am so grateful for each and every one of you that came out.

Now for me, I am getting to mopping that kitchen floor with the powdered sugar glaze.

Happy Crafting!

Giving back…

Today is the day that we focus on giving back or paying it forward.  If you are out shopping on this black Friday then maybe you tuck your elbows instead of using them. 😉  Maybe you sit down and mail all of those cards you’ve been meaning to send.  Maybe you just can’t shake someone that is on your mind so you call them.  Whatever it is get to it.

For me, today, it’s giving back to you.  So for the hours leading up to the Christmas party I will be posting a contest or something fun to do at noon, 2 pm, 4 pm, 6 pm, 8 pm, 10 pm, midnight, 6 am, 7:30 am, and 9 am.  Each contest will have a prize you will have a chance to win.  And, each contest, will also earn raffle tickets for a chance to win one of two stamp sets.  Not only will there be giveaways, raffles, and Christmas cookies…but also FREE projects!  It’s not too late to let me know that you are dropping by tomorrow.

You do not have to be present to win, but you have to tell me you won before Monday night at 9 pm.  Those details will follow.
