My favorite things

Two posts in one day!  Can you believe it? :)

I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about a couple of questions I hear quite often. 

"What are your favorite Stampin' Up products?"


"What kind of products would you recommend for someone wanting to start crafting but are not sure where to begin?"

And so, I put together a list of my favorite products below.

Watercolor Wishes Card Kit - This kit is PERFECT if you're new to crafting.  Everything that you could possibly need is included in this kit - including a fantastic stamp set.  The only thing you may want to have is some liquid glue for the wood embellishments.  Other than that, the kit is all inclusive and has colored step by step instructions included.  Makes 20 cards and also includes envelopes.

Favorite Image Stamp Sets
- "Butterfly Basics" and "Awesomely Artistic".  If you've followed my blog for awhile, you know that most of my work is kind of "cutesy".  I've always loved fun happy images.  But there is something so beautiful and elegant about the images on these sets.  I absolutely love both of them.

Favorite Image Stamp Set
- tons of great versatile sentiments.  I use this set all the time.

Stamp Scrubber
- I honestly don't know how I ever crafted without this.  For years, I was using baby wipes to clean my stamps.  After using the Stamp Scrubber once, I was hooked.  It just makes things SO much easier!  And the Stampin' Mist smells incredible.  It kind of has a very light floral scent.  Not overpowering at all.  Since I had a spray bottle at home, I just bought the Stampin' Mist refill and use that -works like a charm!

Envelope Punch Board - Even if you're not into card making, I highly recommend this product.  It is also great to make little envelopes for your planner, journal, etc.  And it's easy and fun to use!  There are a ton of ideas on youtube for this great product.

Paper Trimmer - something I truly believe every crafter should have.  It just makes creating your projects so much easier.  And this trimmer has a lot of great features such as a safety lock and also a scoring blade. 

Whisper White Cardstock - another staple when it comes to card making.  Great for card bases and also perfect for stamping.

Hope you found this list helpful.  If there's anything that you think you may be interested in, all of the products are listed below.  Just click on any picture and it will take you directly to my shopping page.

Big news!

I have two big announcements to share!

First, I created a 30/$30 board!

What is a 30/$30 board you might wonder?  Well, it's a fun way for my one of my customers to win some FREE Stampin' Up product!  For every $30 or more order (before tax and shipping), be sure to  email me at  I will have you choose a number between 1-30 and will write your name on the board.  When the entire board is filled, I will do a drawing.  The name written beside the number I choose will win $30 of Stampin' Up product FREE.

So, for a $30 + order, your name will be entered once.  For a $60 or more order, your name goes on the board TWICE.  And so on. 

A few things to note:

*Free product must be chosen from the current Stampin' Up catalog.
*Clearance merchandise does not count toward free product.
*Past orders do not count toward this promotion.
*$30 orders must be BEFORE tax and shipping
*Free product must be ordered directly through me.
*No hostess only sets, class fees or stamp clubs will qualify for this promotion.
*$30 in free product must include tax and shipping.
*Any amount exceeding the $30 will be the responsibility of the winner.

And my second announcement? I'm having an online party!!  What does that mean for you?  Well, here's the info:

Place an order with me during my party and use the hostess code KPS4H9NN.  If the total party amount reaches $150 or more (before tax and shipping), then I will do a drawing and one of YOU will win the hostess rewards!  So place your order today for the chance to win!  The party will close on October 29, 2015 so all orders MUST be placed by then.

Have a great day everyone! :)
