Stampin’Up! Hold onto Hope stamp set, 3 ways!

First, I feel like I need to introduce myself since it has been so long since I have blogged! #bloggerwoes

But here is the deal: I don’t love to blog. Yep, it just isn’t my jam.

But you know what I do love? Facebook 

and I love connecting and sharing with you, and I feel like I can do a better job of that on Facebook.

So 2 things:

I am committing to #365creativechallenge. I am going to share for 365 days straight on my FB page AND do a giveaway each day for those who stop by and comment. So make sure you are part of my page HERE 

Secondly, I am going to use my WEEKLY newsletter to offer sales, specials and PDFs. So make sure you are signed up for that HERE

and I will blog occasionally when I am doing blog hops with my team, because that is way fun!

I do have a fabulous share for you today from my InkBigAcademy Design Team that showcases the Hold on to Hope Bundle from the Occasions Catalog… I have even more samples of this over on my Facebook Page today.

The Hold on to Hope bundle is such a beautiful set that you can use not only year round, but will make spectacular Easter cards

I love the monochromatic look of Fresh Fig on the card below.

Both the Brick Wall embossing folder and the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper add so much interest.

Lemon Lime Twist….can we have a moment. I have to be honest that when I got a preview of this color I was not excited. But once I had it in my craft room? It is my number one go to color. I love how well it plays with others and has a retro/hip/modern feel …. is that even a thing?

Isn’t this card so fresh and bright and cheery?

the church that I belong to has a Good Friday service that I rarely miss. It begins at noon and finishes at 3 pm. One of the last things they do is shroud the cross. It is so emotion filled….luckily we take the shroud off on Sunday morning, but that imagery will always stay with me.

Those emotions are so strikingly conveyed in the card below, and isn’t that sentiment just perfect?

I have some more samples of this bundle on my Facebook page today so be sure to pop over there, leave a comment and be entered to win today’s giveaway.

and don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter where I will share a weekly special, along with PDF’s for your use!

Happy Friday xoxo

I need to order some more ribbons for packaging up goodies and I can ALWAYS use more folded notecards, Whisper White Cardstock, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, adhesives of all sorts and DIMENSIONALS….because if I don’t have at least 10 packs at the ready I get a little nervous!

White embossing, a little watercolor and the Baby Wipe Technique make this a fun and special birthday cardWho knew that chandelier would also make the most perfect vase? Perfect to hold a trio of flowers made with the Stampin’Up! Daisy Punch, and those sparkly middles are courtesy of the Clear Faceted Gems

I love the colored rhinestones that make the perfect bling courtesy of a Bermuda Bay Blends

This is a WOW thanks to some great heat embossing on the background. Clear Embossing on Black always impresses. The Chandelier was cropped from our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and ofers up an impressive sparkle. A show stopper for sure!

A shabby chic take on Christmas with the perfect pop of red on this final sample!

I told you that you would be impressed with these samples from the InkBig Design Team! I would love to know which one is your favorite!

Tags and Trimmings with the InkBig Design Team

I started pulling out my Christmas Decorations yesterday. #love Now nothing goes up until after Thanksgiving but I like to assess every year and decide what goes where and what I might want more of. I always want more 😉 Christmas always seems like the time you can get away with a little more sparkle, a little more shine… there such a thing as “tasteful excess”?!!!

These adorable projects were created by my design team and I can not wait to recreate them!

They use the Tags and Trimming bundle from the Stampin’Up! Holiday catalog and do such an awesome job of showing off the versatility of this bundle. Remember that when you purchase a bundle you save 10%, love that!

I am so smitten with the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper. It is the perfect weight to make boxes and bags and the sparkle is so pretty!

The snowflake in Silver Glimmer Paper and the Silver Tinsel make this the perfect container for a gift card.

This card takes on a definite traditional look with the bright and cheery Cucumber Crush, Crumb Cake and Real Red. I adore that Cable Knit Embossing Folder #swoon

are you amazed at how different each of these projects look even though they are using the same bundle? The card below could be a “Lisa-card” with all that great white space and pop of sparkle! Clean and simple, yet truly special!

The other BIG news is a new product we are launching and YOU can preorder beginning November 16

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:

  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window. (Note: The Stamparatus is not a Cash-and-Carry item.)
  • You and your customers may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
Reservation Windows Available to Ship
November 16–30, 2017 Approx. February 1, 2018
December 5–30, 2017 Approx. March 19, 2018
January 15–30, 2018 Approx. April 15, 2018
Reminder that your first opportunity to pre-order is November 16
