I have been wanting to do a BOGO sale for a long time and just never took the time to go through all of my retired things.  Well, I am going through them now and oh my goodness!

I used the Subtle embossing folder for the Cherry Cobbler banner.  I stamped the lighthouse and birds with Night of Navy ink and cut them out with the Stitched Rectangle dies.  I popped this layer up with Stampin Dimensionals.  The sentiment was also stamped with the same ink and cut out with a die from the coordinating Smooth Sailing dies.

On Friday night I had my monthly card class and I featured the Come Sail Away Suite.  At this class we make 3 different cards using the same stamp set, framelits and designer series paper.  This is a great way to show how versatile our products are.  The above card is one of the cards we made in class.  

Do you know where I got the layout for this card?  I had used it in another card with the same theme in May 2016.  I use the Open Sea stamp set.  Here is a picture of the card I originally made.

I think the Come Sail Away suite in the Stampin' Up! new 2019-2020 annual catalog is going to be a big hit.  It is a perfect set for masculine cards, which to be honest, are sometimes difficult to make, and for anyone who loves the water.

I saw this card, created by Wendy Weixler,  online awhile ago and fell in love with it.  I loved everything about it, so I didn't change a thing.  It is not too often that I see a card and not change something on it.  Thank you so much Wendy for sharing your wonderful card with everyone.

For the Baker's Twine a took a piece about 13" - 14" long and folded it in half.  Then I tied a knot in it and adhered it with glue dots.  Once in place I cut the ends off at the edge of the paper.  I added a Metallic Silver Pearl in the center of the helm.

I am not sure if any of you know, but on Monday night there were 13 tornados in our area.  The damage is devastating, to say the least.  We were very blessed and only lost power for about 7 hours on Monday night.  However, we did lose internet and cable yesterday from about 1:30pm until 5:00am this morning.  You don't realize how much you use the internet until you don't have it.  

Our city has some major damage, but thankfully because of our wonderful meteorologists, there were only minor injuries.  You see pictures on tv and you feel for people, but there is no way to comprehend what they are going through, until you see it in person.  Mr. Wonderfull and I drove around Tuesday night and I literally sat in the car and cried and continued to cry all night.  I get teary eyed just thinking about it.  I can't even put into words the feelings I was feeling.  I was just awful, and sad, and heartbreaking, and unbelievable, and I could go on for a long time.  Our town is great and we will recover and be stronger and better.  I am so impressed with the amount of people that are jumping right in to help their neighbors, friends and total strangers.  It makes me proud to say I live in Beavercreek, OH.  

I was in the middle of writing this blog post when the internet went out, so that is why there wasn't a post on Wednesday.  I keep telling myself to work ahead, and then I get side tracked with playing with my beautiful crafting supplies, that I don't do it.  That is on my list to do this weekend. However, I have two classes and need to get things ready for my Catalog Kick Off Class next Friday.  So, I am thinking I am not going to be that much ahead next week.  LOL

I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.  Give your loved ones a hug and tell them how much they mean to you.  I am sending out love and hugs to each and everyone of you!  Thank you so much for being a part of my journey, no my life.  

Happy Stampin and

Every Monday night at 7:00pm I have a Facebook Live on my Stampin Scrapper Facebook page.  Since Stampin' Up! was having a day of celebrating Lovely As A Tree, I thought I should celebrate it too!  But, how was I going to celebrate it? 

One way was to share with you on my blog post on Monday my favorite Lovely As A Tree and Rooted In Nature stamp sets.  Another way was creating a fun project to demonstrate on my Facebook Live.

As my husband, Mr. Wonderful, and I were driving home on Sunday, I noticed how pretty the trees looked against the sky.  That got my creative juices flowing on how to take that look and make it into a card.  My next step was to search Pinterest for ideas on how to do a sky background and what time of day I wanted to do.  After looking at a lot of different cards, I knew I wanted to do a sunset.

I really like how it turned out.  I also knew I wanted to use one of the stamp sets that I hadn't used in a very long time.  As I was looking through my stamp sets, I found the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set.  It had some cobwebs on it, (not really) so it was time to brush it off and use it.  I think the sentiment is perfect for this card.  What a better way to watch the sunset and thank God for your day.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Crushed Curry

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Basic Black

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Whisper White

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Here is the video showing you how to do the sponging on this card.

 

Now, you can create beautiful sunsets yourself!  What stamp set are you going to use on your project?

 

Thank you for stopping in today!  I hope you have a terrific day!  Tomorrow I am heading to Michigan to spend some time with my mom and the rest of my family.  I can't wait to see them.  It has been way too long!

Happy Stampin and

Coffee Cafe Tunnel Card

I have used the Coffee Cups at least once a month, sometimes more, since they came out.  This is one stamp set, Coffee Cafe, and framelits, Coffee Cups, that I will be keeping for a very long time.  The stamp set and framelits are perfect for making cards and gift card holders when you give away coffee gifts cards.  For texture on this card I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder and the Garden Impressions designer series paper, which are both retiring.

The sentiment on this card is from the Eastern Beauty stamp set and the scattered dots are from the Swirly Bird stamp set, which both of them are retiring.  The flower is from Pop of Petal stamp set and is being carried over to the new annual catalog.  The Swirly Scribbles thinlits are also retiring at the end of the month.

Dragonfly Dreams Eclipse Card

This was a fun card at my card class!  The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set with the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly thinlits are both retiring.  Also, retiring is the Large Letter Framelits.  I am sad about the Large Letter Framelits because I love them!  They are another product that I won't be getting rid of.  

Here are the colors that are also retiring this month.  The Lemon Lime Twist and Fresh Fig cardstock, however, are SOLD OUT.

Last weekend I went to the Stampin Sisters Retreat in Rockford IL.  We had such a great time.  I went with two of my good friends, Beth and Mary.  This was Mary's first time and she loved it too!  We are definitely going back again next year.  Actually, I loved it so much that I am going to be having my first retreat in September.  It will be a one day retreat, I want to work up to a weekend retreat, that is going to be packed with fun projects and goodies.  Watch out for more details.

When Beth and I went last year, Margie and Maxine were our tablemates.  They are so fun and loved seeing them again.  We were lucky to have them sititing at the table next to us.  So, we still got to spend some time with them.

This is a good  picture of Mary and I.  We took so many, because we couldn't stop laughing.  We had the same shirt, this was planned, and the same glasses.  That was not planned!

I love this picture of us!  We were laughing so hard that I had tears in my eyes.

Here is a picture of Beth and I on the last day.  It was so wonderful spending time with her, she lives almost 10 hours from me.  I am hoping to see her again soon.

Young Boy Birthday Card using Geared Up Garage

Any young boy would be happy to get this card for their birthday.  I made this card for my great nephew, who's birthday is next week.  All week you have seen me use the Geared Up Garage stamp set in different ways.  For this card, I used the stamp set again, however, I added another stamp set, Perennial Birthday, for the sentiment.

Did you notice the paper under the card?  It is a sheet from the Classic Garage 6" x 6" designer series paper!  Did you also notice the gears on the card are the same ones on the paper?  How cool is that!  Yesterday on my Stampin Scrapper Facebook page, I shared a tip on how to cut out the images on the paper.  If you didn't see it on my page, here it is.

For the sentiment I first stamped the background image with a stamp from the Geared Up Garage stamp set.  I used the Gray Granite ink and stamped my image off on a scrap piece of paper first, before I stamped it on the Whisper White cardstock.  I then stamped the sentiment with Black Memento ink.  On the inside of the card and on my envelope I stamped the image you see in the picture above.  I, then popped the Real Red circle using Stampin Dimensionals and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the gears.  

To make this card you will need the following paper.  For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.

Cardstock:

Crushed Curry

  • cut at 4 1/4" x 11" score at 5 1/2"

Basic Black

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Real Red

  • a piece of scrap paper for a 2" circle

Whisper White

  • a piece of scrap paper for the 1 3/4" circle
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

While I was editing my photos yesterday, I decided to play a little bit.  I have never done a picture in a shape other than a square or rectangle.  This time I decided to try a circle.    I have to say, I like it.

My best friend, Robin, took home one of the calendars that I made for my customer appreciation event and showed it to her husband.  He said he wanted one for his desk.   This is the one I made for his desk using the Classic Garage suite in the occasions catalog.  

I used the Geared Up Garage stamp set, Classic Garage 6" x 6" designer series paper and the Classic Garage Metal Elements.  I love the little silver embellishments.
