Last Day to Sale-a-brate!

Today is the last day to order during Sale-a-bration and you don't want to end up like this.

Remember for every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) you receive a FREE product out of the Sale-a-bration catalog.  You can see that catalog here.

Here's a project I created using one of the bundles Stampin' Up! created that just happens to be over $50.  So if you order this Birthday Bash Bundle then you already qualify for the FREE product!  This card is copied right out of the catalog as well.  So not only are our catalogs used to find product but you can also find some great ideas inside of them.

Disney Wreath with Stampin' Up!

Have you ever seen a project and just had the perfect person who would love it?  This was the project below for me that I saw somewhere on Facebook.

My closest friend from when we lived in San Diego, who I desperately miss everyday, is a HUGE Disney fan.  And I mean HUGE!!  When I saw that picture I knew I had to create it for her.  I didn't have enough paper to make it exactly like that so I changed it to look more like the wreath Janet Wakeland created in her post here.  I sent this off at Christmas and it was a BIG success in her home.

You Make Me Happy card

I saw this sun being created all over the Internet using the Sale-a-bration banner punch you can earn FREE when you place a $50 product order.  I just had to give it a try and it matches perfectly with this stamp from the See Ya Later stamp set that you can also earn FREE during Sale-a-bration.

You only have until Monday to order anything through my online store to take advantage of the Sale-a-bration offers.  Shop at to take advantage of our best sale of the year!

Wedding Touches with Stampin' Up!

My sister got married 1.4.14.  We had a lot of handmade touches especially as I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and it's what I do!!  I just wanted to show you some pictures of the things I made for her to use.

These first pictures are signs I made using My Digital Studio (MDS).  She had various baskets of things that people could borrow during the night to keep them warm since it was a winter wedding.

Basket of slippers

Basket of Gloves

Koozies basket

Basket of Scarves
Sign made with MDS to honor deceased family members who couldn't be at the wedding

The next pictures are banners I made for the 2 bars that she was having; s'more and hot chocolate bar.  These signs hung from the tables in front of the bar.

It really was a great pleasure helping my sister plan for her wedding.  I look forward to planning her baby shower when that comes around!

Pittsburgh Penguins Bachelorette Party Invitations

My sister got married January 4, 2014 and I threw her a bridal shower that you can see from my previous post here.  Since it took a lot of time and money to throw her the bridal shower one of the other bridesmaids took charge of the bachelorette party.  I did volunteer to make the invites since I had an idea to make it like a hockey jersey with it being a Pittsburgh Penguins themed party.

It took me a little time and playing around to figure out how I wanted it to look and open but I was so happy with the way it turned out.  I just love the tie up just like the real hockey jerseys have.  Her name is Cori so I could put the C on the front like a captain too!
Her new last name is Weber so I wanted to incorporate that and with her date being 1.4.14 is why I chose the number 14.

Inside made with MDS

The inside I created with My Digital Studio which was so easy.  I downloaded a picture of the Pittsburgh Penguins logo then made it opaque enough that you can read the words and added some stars and that was it.  One of my favorite tools when it comes to customizing my creations is My Digital Studio!
