Month: March 2016

Weekly Deals and Paper Pumpkin Deal until March 31st

March 29, 2016

(Jim did remember- he woke me up to a Barry White serenade…)

Hey there, crafters-

Here are your Weekly Deals good Tuesday March 29 through April 4

Don’t forget that Paper Pumpkin is on sale during SALE-A-BRATION! You get a $5 discount on a 3 month subscription –

THREE kits for just $55 and a Free Sale-a-bration goodie!

AND…In April, as a THANK YOU to its subscribers, Stampin’ Up is

giving away a FREE stamp set

in addition to the one already in the kit!!!!


If there is a time to test drive this baby, now is the time-


A 3 months subscription, FREE stamp set in April, and a Free SAB item- all for a discounted $55!

As always, during your subscription, you can opt out any month by the 10th of that month . For example, if you have a 3 mos. subscription and want to have it three months in a row- just let it ride. However, if you want it in April, not in May, and then again in June- you can do that. All you need to do is opt out of May by May 10th. You do this until your subscription is filled.

Imagine using this in your gift giving- you subscribe, you get the box, and you have three gifts that are completely ready to give as a gift (for under $20- actually $18.33). What a fun and creative way to give a gift- everything they need is in the box- the ink, the stamps, and the paper and accessories! Hey, I think I am going to subscribe again!!!

If you have any questions, please contact me by Thursday, March 31st.  or 724-323-2296


You will see Paper Pumpkin listed on the left side of the store under the search box. Check it out!

SU Balloon Bouquet Punch with SAB Party Pants Stamp

March 28, 2016

(OMGosh- it’s my 29th anniversary- I almost forgot until I posted this- I wonder if Jim will remember?)

Hey kids, we are winding up SALE-A-BRATION 2016 this week on Thursday, March 31st  so…
“PUT YOUR PARTY PANTS ON” if there is anything else you are looking at and want a cute Sale-a-bration item to boot with a $50 order!

SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Pink

You will see a lot of cards using this “collar card” technique if you google it.
My friend, Linda Heller, inspired me with this design using the Balloon Bouquet punch
along with the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack.
It is a 48 sheet paper stack with 4 sheets each of 12 designs of  12″ x 12″ designer series paper in great colors- both bright and neutral.

I used the fun Party Pants Sale-a-bration stamp, too!

SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Pink inside

You can see how I carried over the designer series paper and the balloon theme
to the inside of the card:)

Here is another card using a different pattern in the
It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack:

SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Black


SU Balloon Celebration Collar Card Black inside

For this card, I simply took a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of designer paper and placed the 5 1/4″ side up against the top of my Stampin’ Trimmer. I then slid the left edge of the paper to the 2 5/8″ mark on the top ruler of the trimmer. I then used the cutting blade to cut down from the top to the 1 1/2″ mark on the clear sliding ruler that the blade is guided through. After you make the cut, you just fold back the two collars exposing the opposite side of the designer paper. To make the folding a bit easier, you can use a ruler to line up the each corner with the middle cut to get a clean fold down each side.

Weekly Deals March 22 to March 28

March 22, 2016

It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means?
Weekly Deals are up! Good today, March 22 to Monday, March 28.

If you had your eye on that Curvy Trio Punch, now is the time!

WooHoo! It’s on sale for $5 off the original price! And, it’s time to stock up on the embellies, too- Pearls and White Accents. Hey, why not add some glitz with glitter, too! And wrap it all up with some luxurious Satin Silver Ribbon. This is a great line-up, friends! 

Oh, and it is still SALE-A-BRATION until March 31 so stocking  up can get you a freebie-

and don’t forget about the new items added, too!

I certainly love pearls as an accent as seen on these cards, so delicate and pretty:

SU Wild About Flowers (below)

SU Wild about Flowers Jan's Retirement

SU An Open Heart (below)

SU An Open Heart open

but I really love the variety of sizes in the White Perfect Accents, too.
To me, the white accents are a kind of “modern day” pearl accent that fits with a fun stamp set like the SU Sprinkles of Life, our Ronald McDonald Charity.

They add just a little pop of pizzazz!

SU Sprinkles of Life Cupcake MOJO



*Local stampers, let me know by Friday, if you would like any of these Weekly Deals delivered at April classes.
