Desktop Calendars- Fruit Basket and Sweet Soiree

Hello everyone! As we approach the new year, I want to share with you some of the desk top calendars I made this year to send out with my catalog. I made six different designs, all featuring new products from the upcoming Occasions Catalog. 

The first one features the new Tutti Frutti Suite. The stamp set is called Fruit Basket and has four coordinating punches! We all love a coordinating punch don't we! The DSP is called Tutti Frutti. 

 
Each of my calendars has an eagle bottom and can sit on your desk all year. 
I purchase all of my mini calendars from Taylored Expressions.  
I will be doing a tutorial on these next week during Facebook Friday! 

The second design features the Sweet Soiree Suite. The gorgeous paper is gold embossed and is called Sweet Soiree Designer Series paper. The stamp set is called Cake Soiree. You can find it on p. 10-14 in your catalog. 

I'll be back in a couple days with another couple of designs- stay tuned!

Sure Do Love You Valentine Treats Class to Go

Hello everyone! Are you ready to start thinking about something OTHER than Christmas? I know I sure am! I'm happy to announce my very class of 2018: Sure Do Love You Valentine Treats Class to Go! 


Love is in the air and it’s time to make some adorable treats to hand out this Valentine’s Day. In this planner you will find six projects each featuring the Sure Do Love You stamp and coordinating Lots to Love Box Framelits. Four of the six projects show you a different way to use the box die! That’s FOUR alternate uses! Included are a chapstick shadow box, a large treat box, a gusseted treat bag, a Hersey Nugget Holder, a Post It Note Holder and a rounded top treat box. 

You will only need two inks for the projects: Melon Mambo and Versa Mark. You will also need Gold Embossing Powder and a Heat Tool to create the beautiful gold images. 
I recommend that you use Fast Fuse and/or Tear & Tape to assemble your projects. You will also need Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.

There are four options for this class. 

Each class kit will arrive at your front door sorted and organized by project. I will do all the scoring, punching and cutting for you (other than what needs to be done with your new Framelits.)  
  This class to go has four options:
Option #1 $67
This is the full Class To Go Kit. It includes the clear mount Sure Do Love You Bundle (stamps and Framelits a $48.50 value!), a bolt of Organza Ribbon, a Sale a Bration item of your choice and all  Make and Take materials. When you choose this option, you are actually getting the ribbon for FREE! You will also receive the full PDF tutorial. Email me for the registration link.
**Free Sale A Bration choices are only what can fit in the same Flat Rate envelope (Not the DSP or wood mount stamps and only the Level 1 choices. See registration page for complete options.)
Option #2- $32
This is the Class to Go Kit for those of you who already own the Sure Do Love You Bundle. You will need the stamps and Framelits to create these projects, so only choose this option if you already own them. Your class to go kit will include a bolt of Organza Ribbon all Make and Take materials. You will also receive the full PDF tutorial. Email me for the registration link.
Option #1 and #2 both ship priority for $7. If you are local (San Antonio) and would like to pick up your class kit, choose "Porch Pick Up" to save on shipping.

All class kits and included product will be ordered and prepared together after the deadline. This is a preorder only and per SU policy, I do not have products on hand ready to ship. Because of this, it takes about 1 week after the deadline for me to order, cut, prepare and ship all the class kits.  Class Kits can only be mailed within the United States. If you live out of the US, you can still purchase the PDF.
Registration will close on January 13 .

Bella and Friends + Blends


December is the first month in my Pink Buckaroo Blends Club. This month's projects used the precious Bella and Friends stamp set. Each club member will be receiving two make and takes in the mail this week from me along with a exclusive video tutorial. I also created two more projects to show them more ideas to use their blends and stamp set. Here are the two alternate projects. 

This stamp set was designed by my friend Angie Juda. It's her real life dog and pet bird! Isn't that fun!? I haven't used it enough since I got it last year, so I thought now that we have the blends, this is the perfect time to get it out and ink it up! This car features Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends. I also cut out Soft Suede hearts and adhered them to the card front to create a a textured background. I stuck with all neutrals so that the little heart color would really pop. 

The second card uses Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Stampin' Blends. Look at that stamp. SO. Cute. 
And the DSP? Merry Little Christmas! This paper truly can be carried all year!! I love it so much...

If you have not heard about my Blends Club, check out the details here. While we've already started, I am happy to add in a few more members to start in January. In fact, if you want to join THIS month, I actually made a couple of extra make and take kits just in case...

Seasonal Lantern Tags

Good morning everyone! A quick post today to show one more tag! This one went out with my Seasonal Lantern Class to Go last month. 

I stamped the lantern on Smokey Slate Cardstock and didn't stamp the candle at all. I simply cut it out of Cherry Cobbler with the candle framelit. I layered them on two ovals and stapled them to these yummy coconut chocolates I found at TJ Max.

I also added a Cherry Cobbler Stitched ribbon bow to the top. Lots and lots of dimensionals, of course!

Don't forget to check out the Clearance Rack- Stampin' Up added lots of items yesterday!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop December


Hello everyone and welcome to the December Fancy Friday Blog Hop! This month, our theme is "Mixed Metals." This one was kind of hard for me. But, I looked around online at some things that have mixed metals and got to work! 

I kept this one simple. Just lots of strips of Copper, Silver, Gold and Champagne Foil. All of them are different widths and some are straight and some are at an angle. The sentiment is from Lovely Friends. The twine is a sneak peek from the 2018 Occasions Catalog! 

I actually really like it! I don't normally like mixed metallic together, but this one I like! 

And then, I tried it with a Christmas card. I don't like this one as much, but it's still fun. The ornaments are all different size circle framelits and punches. The "hanger" is part of a stocking framelit from Christmas Stocking Framelits. 

Ok, hop along to the other wonderful designers to see what kind of things they've come up with. Next is Krista!
