Quick Thank You Card and Update

Hi everyone, I’m so sorry for being MIA these past weeks.  I’m excited to share that as a lot of you are aware I was having some health issues and they finally came to a head and I had surgery.  The good news is other than my hearing I am back on a roll.  Although this liquid diet I have to be on for the next 3 weeks is NOT going to be fun.  It’s a full liquid, so please if you have ideas and recipes do share.  Positive hey maybe I’ll lose some much un-needed weight!!

Ok so today was my first day up and around, so needed to get myself caught up!  I like to send thank you cards and wow was I behind.  So today I wanted to make some real simple cards to go out to my customers who ordered the Getting Started kits.  Remember those it had everything you need to get started making beautiful cards and 3d items.  In addition, I had put together some goodie bags of embellishments to help them a long the way.  I was so excited with the new designer series paper Springtime Foils that I knew I wanted to use them.

Supplies Needed:

Narrow Whisper White cards and envelopes

Springtime Foils (silver leaves) 4.25″ x 2.25″

Springtime Foils (Flowers)

January Paper Pumpkin 2018

Yesterday I received my “Calypso Coral” boxes in the mail.  I have been waiting all week for them.  I absolutely love getting Paper Pumpkin, it’s so much fun to be surprised each month with a new project.  The best part it comes with everything you need right there is the beautiful little package.  This month it was for Valentines but with a different spin on the colors.  Absolutely adorable!!

Take a look at the project I worked on this morning.

 

Just a quick reminder that for any order over $50 you are eligible to pick a product from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!  Take a look inside the Sale A Bration catalog by clicking the picture below.

Petal Palette and New Monthly Hostess Code

Hi everyone, as most of you are aware I was down with a yuck flu for the past week!  But yesterday I forced myself up and took a long hot shower so that I could make myself feel better.  It definitely worked.  I missed chatting with everyone, but I sure appreciate the messages and prayers that I received they absolutely were a blessing!

Yesterday I decided to work on my favorite bundle and that is the Petal Palette with the Petal Passion Designer Paper.  Omigosh I love all of the black and white, it’s classic, however add that pop of color and it’s so much more.  I even played with my Stampin’ Up Blends!  If you have not got those, it’s a must.  You can start small and purchase 1 set at a time or buy the whole kit at once.  I promise you will not regret it!

I did a video that really takes much longer than what the card actually takes, but gives you a couple of ideas to try!

 

I hope you enjoyed the video and I know you can tell I’m still got a cold going on but definitely getting better!

The New Hostess Code this month is B4W3TGD6.  Don’t Forget for every $50 spent you get to pick a free item from Sale-A-Bration Catalog!  Also if you spend $150 please let me know so I can give you a personal code for more free goodies!

Join a Great Team

Have you thought about joining a team of crafters?  To earn extra monies for things or to just get discounts on high quality crafting supplies for your own creativity?  Or taking another direction in your career?

Let me share the reason I joined.  I joined to find others to share my craft with.  Living in a small town coming from a large city where supplies were in abundance, crafting retreats and late night scraps were gone.  I’ve been a customer of Stampin’ Up! for many years, but just for my own hobby.  When I moved to T or C, NM, I started thinking about why not share what I love doing.  Opportunity to meet new people and believe me did I ever.  I literally have met people from all over the world that I have gotten to know online and then met at conferences.  Yes I have to admit I love going to our OnStage conferences.

Stampin’ Up! recognizes not everyone wants to start a business and that they would like to invite them to be involved as well to get insider tips on new items and trending projects.

Well hold on because Stampin’ Up! is offering a wonderful opportunity this month!  Not only can you get $125 worth of supplies in your starter kit for only $99, they are also offering for you to pick out two (2) extra stamp sets for free. You cannot beat that!  One more kicker, the price of the stamp sets does not matter you can pick out the two most expensive ones to get for free.

If you are interested or have questions on how it works, please send me an email at awest@craftydreams.com or click the link below

Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Catalog

Woo Hoo, my favorite time of the year at Stampin’ Up!  The Occasions Catalog came out today, and it is simply awesome.  Each year we have a great catalog for the spring and you will love it.  One of the great parts is the fact that for every $50 you spend you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  How great is that and the catalog helps you to match up with items that you have ordered.

Each day I want to share some great items, I’m not going to lie I have some hands down favorites in both of the catalogs.  I can’t wait to share each suite of products for easy and fun to create projects.

If you would like me to send you both of the catalogs just send me a message with your address and I will get one out to you right away.  If you would like get in on it right away here is a link for ordering with the Occasions Catalog.  Click Here!!  Take a look at some of the products coming your way!

Let’s start celebration off right!  If you would like to get a handmade card made to give to a friend post a comment, if you would like to get a second one guess what my favorite item might be in the new Occasions Catalog.  There might even be a hint somewhere on this page!
