I Love the Holidays!!!

For those of you (like myself) that have to over plan and organize everything, this is the perfect time of year to start working on those holiday cards and crafts.

This catalog isn’t just about Christmas. It also includes Halloween and Thanksgiving. I know that one of the Halloween suites is on my “must have” list!! Well, pretty much everything is on that list, but there is the budget to consider…

Let me know if you are interested in looking at the Holiday catalog. It will also be available to view online September 4, 2019.

Happy Crafting! Colleen

Bonus Days Are Coming to an End

Can you believe July is almost over? I am beginning to wonder where the summer has gone. I guess it’s true that time flies when you are having a good time.

Just a quick reminder: Bonus Days is coming to an end this month. This is a great opportunity to pick up some coupon codes to use in the month of August.

On a side note…I plan to start doing some instructional videos in the next couple of months. Wish me luck!!!

Happy Crafting~~

Making Cards and Local Bakeries

Today was spent at a local bakery making cards and looking through the Stampin’ Up catalog with @ StampinTammy (you can catch up with her blog here on WordPress or check out her Facebook page). We had such a fun morning.

To begin, the Vanilla Coconut Scones at Cake Happy (downtown Camas, Washington) were amazing. The owner of that shop was gracious enough to let us set up all of our supplies at one of the tables and hang out there for about 3 hours (time really does fly when you are having fun!).

***Quick note: if you are clumsy (and I am), move the Whisper White cardstock BEFORE you uncover the very hot tea***

Today we stamped with the Above The Clouds set. Our cards turned out fabulous. I wish I had a good picture to share with you. Unfortunately, I was so busy chatting, I did not get as good of a picture as I thought.

I wrote a brief note inside of the card I made thanking the owner of Cake Happy for her hospitality. It really is wonderful to be able to share what we love.

There are some fabulous examples of cards made with this stamp set/ bundle on the internet. Of course, if you are in the United States and are interested in placing an order, I would be happy to assist you. Check out my online store (follow link below) or send an email.

Happy Crafting and may your days be filled with friendship!

Crafting with Friends is the Best!

Today is one of those drizzly days in Washington State. Yes, I know it is summer everywhere else. But, here, it is 68 degrees, overcast with light rain…on July 17th!! So, instead of complaining about the lack of sunshine (at least not much), it was the perfect day to get together with a dear friend and do Paper Pumpkin projects.

Between yummy muffins, great conversation and a precut card making kit, we forgot all about our lack of warmth and sunshine and enjoyed the morning.

Are you an experienced crafter or a beginning crafter? If you want an easy, inexpensive way to dip your toe in the crafting waters, Paper Pumpkin might be for you. The kit we used does coordinate with three of our stamp sets.

If you would like more information, please email me or follow the link below to my online store.

Happy Crafting and I hope your day is filled with warmth and sunshine!!
