Here’s a sneak peek of something from the New Occasions Catalog…and Sale-a-Bration! Got the idea from Billie Moan on Stampin’ Connection. Sky is the Limit is a Sale-a-Bration Set. That means the set is FREE with any $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration! (Jan 5 – Mar 31).
February is here! I’ve survived 1 month of working FT and have surprised myself by actually enjoying it! The only drawback seems to be…not much stampin’ time. Have to admit, I’ve been pretty spoiled!
I decided to do some embossing using Melon Mambo Embossing Powder. The stamp set comes from Hello Love, a Hostess Stamp. It’s a great deal for just $13 when the total order comes to $150!
Hope this inspires you to drag out your embossing gun & have some fun with it!
Now you can jump over to Anne and Crystal‘s blogs to see what they’ve come up with for February!
I feel so happy when I get home from work to find this! I slipped a treat into everyone’s order. I had lots of fun putting together these Mini Treat Bags! This Thinlits Die comes with lots of cute cut-outs!! I didn’t even realize it until I poured them all out on the table!
Perfect size for slipping in a cookie! Remember those Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps?! You’ll find them in the Big Catalog on page 199.
Please excuse my picture-taking skills… I think it’s time to look into getting some sort of “photo box”. Any suggestions?
Leave a reply in the box if you’d like Tutu’s recipe for almond cookies. My grandmother was a school teacher, first in Paia, then in Haleiwa, during WWII, and was a fabulous cook!! Here’s Tutu with my parents on one of her visits. She looks Hawaiian, doesn’t she? Actually, she’s English/German, & read paperback mysteries on the beach every day.
Have a great day & thanks for looking!
Today I want to show off this stamp set, You Plus Me.
This was one of the cards we made at CLUB in January. I especially love the different looks you can get using Stacked With Love DSP Stack!
The inside of the cards are dressed up a bit with Washi Tape.
Yesterday some friends came over to watch the game. Claudine & I quickly navigated to my glorious, messy stamp room to make Valentines. We pulled out an old favorite DSP from Christmas a year ago. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day cards! Soft & fuzzy!!
The sentiment is not retired! It’s a set called And Many More…
I love stampin’ with friends! Claudine is one of my “old favorites”!
Came up with this simple idea for holding Ghirardelli treats!
All the treat holders I’ve been seeing include making a small box. They’re all very cute, but I wanted something very simple! The Stretch Ruffle Trim is tied around the treat holder so that the treat doesn’t fall out! No box. No sticky strip.

2. Score at 4 & 4 1/2 “.
3. Use Scallop Tag Topper Punch to punch both ends.
4. Fold, stick in the chocolate, & tie Stretch Ruffle Trim around to hold it closed.
5. Stamp design on 1 3/4 X 1 3/4″ square & round corners using Envelope Punch Board.
6. Embellish as desired.
7. Reward yourself with chocolate 🙂
