Almost April!

Greetings!

I can not in my wildest dreams believe it will be April 1st on Saturday - and that ain't no joke!  Yikes!  Is anyone else saying "stooooppppp" this year is going by too fast!

A couple important items to get to first...SALE-A-BRATION ends FRIDAY!!  Yes, this FRIDAY!  Please take a moment to peruse the catalogs pick out some items so you can take advantage of FREE items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  Last chance, gals (and guys).

Second, April 10th is the reveal of the NEW Annual Catalog for us demonstrators.  I can't say enough about all of the advantages to becoming a demonstrator, folks!  If you join my demo team, you too can preview the catalog practically a full 2 (two) months before anyone else!  Plus, we get to PRE-ORDER from the catalog!  PLUS, you get a discount on products.  $125.00 worth of product when you sign up for only $99.00 and if you do it by Friday, you get to to choose two free stamp sets in addition to the other products!  What is there to lose?  Nada, Nothing, Zilch!  What is there to gain?  Previews, Pre-ordering, discounts, sales, and much, much more!  Just click on "Join Me" and I will go over everything with you.  Even if you are already a hobbyist demonstrator, join my team and become one of our fabulous gal team.  We can share all sorts of fun ideas and events and discounts!  I welcome anyone who wants to join my team!  It is a great bunch we have!

Now on to the fun stuff :).  Here is my first attempt using the new Succulent Garden Bundle.  I have seen so many beautiful examples of this as little planters, just on boxes, etc. I just had to give it a try.  Not only is it really easy to put together, they all turn out just gorgeous!

My bad on the supply list - I also used the Big Shot, Stampin' Dimensionals and Snail Adhesive..

Sunday, my friend Cathy demonstrated the technique of "Iris Folding".  Between the two of us, we have sooo many different print papers that are thinner, we had to raid our stacks so that all 10 of us could enjoy different "bunnies".  Here is my template card to get the technique down by Sunday.  It is pretty plain, but I have to admit, the tail says it all!  TuTuTail!  He He!
Iris 1
It was such a fun technique!  It requires a bit of concentration and following numbers, but I am anxious to try another pattern.
Last but not least, here is my card using the Timeless Tags framelits.  Once again, Pinterest has so many wonderful inspirations and I love these colors, so I went for it.  To name who inspired me?  Well everyone on Pinterest who did these cards inspired me, so thank you to all of you!

That is it for me today Peeps!  If you would like to make any of the samples shown, feel free to Case, just click on the supply picture if you need any supplies.  Again, a reminder, if you need a demonstrator, I would be honored to take you under my wings.  Have a great rest of the week, be kind to one another and always make time for some Creating With Paper!  See you soon!

Happy Spring - really? Already?

Greetings All!

I know I have said it many times lately, but I am back!  Life just doesn't let go of it's need to be attended to, but I found a few moments to share some things and get back to my first love (other than my hubster) papercrafting.

First, let me take care of a bit of Stampin' Up! business.  Sale-A-Bration!  SAB is through March 31st.  A couple of the items have sold out completely!!!  This is a risk we all run into!  But, to solve that dilemma, Stampin' Up! has kindly added some items from the Occasions and Annual Catalog.  This hopefully will spur some of you to take advantage of the new items.  Remember, that when you spend $50.00 from either the Annual or the Occasions catalog, it qualifies you for a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  Note, the following are not in the catalog nor in the supplement that added a few new items.  But I would definitely suggest taking advantage of this Sale!!!

New items
I wanted to share a few projects that I have done recently...they are not Stampin' Up! projects although a few items in them are Stampin' Up!  But I won't reveal my sources of products unless you want to message me. 

A few St. Patty's day creations...

Well, I had better get to work!  Have my monthly local "Crafting With the Girls" this Sunday!  Hope to get lots of sales before Sale-A-Bration ends!

Happy Week to all...be kind to one another and make some time for Creating With Paper!
