Broadway Birthday Team Swaps

 Hello and Happy Sunday to you! I hope you are enjoying your day today. Today I wanted to share with you one of the cards I made for our monthly team swaps. We had a Tic-Tac-Toe themed challenge this month and I selected the row using a die cut, patterned paper and bright colors. Our team swaps are always so much fun and it is always exciting to get new ideas from everyone in the group. 

When the new Stampin’ Up catalog came out, the Broadway Birthday star set (and coordinating products) were literally the FIRST things on my “must have” list. The paper in this suite features a color combo of Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White and Gold. I will admit, as much as I love that color combo, I really wanted to break away from it and try something fresh with this stamp set. 

It’s no secret that I was over-the-moon excited to hear that Poppy Parade was returning this year. I grabbed that along with another favorite returning color: Coastal Cabana. Then I added a little pop of Pineapple Paradise and I just LOVE the way it came together. 
I kept it pretty simple with the layout but wanted to add pops of patterns and texture. This was the first time I used the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder and I think it added a fun touch, don’t you. I also added some bling (shocking, I know) to the party hats and then more added sparkle using the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to the “Hooray” sentiment along with the party hats. I have the full supply list at the end of this post. 
Monthly team swaps are just one of the perks of joining my Stampin’ Up Team and July is a great time to join! For a couple more days, you can get a great deal. For $99.00 (plus tax) you can select $125.00 in product of your choice from the catalog. As an added bonus, you can also select an ink pad set in the color family of your choice for FREE! That’s 10 ink pads…and a savings of $67.50. 

So what are a few of the perks of purchasing this kit? First of all, there is NO commitment. ZERO. You can take advantage of this amazing deal and you don’t have to do anything else. You can literally just get over $200 of products for $99.00. However, if you like getting a discount on your stamping supplies, you will receive a 20% discount on your purchases along with exclusive access to pre-order items before they are available to customers. For example, you can shop the Holiday Catalog starting August 1st. One month before it is available to customers! To continue to receive the discount, you would just need to order $300 in products by the end of December. That’s 5 months…and trust me, there are lots of goodies in the Holiday Catalog that you are going to love. 

Whether you are simply looking for a discount on your supplies or to make Stampin’ Up a business, it’s totally up to you. There is no pressure and there are a lot of fun benefits to being a member of my team. We have monthly team meetings locally and also via Facebook Live, if you are long distance. We have monthly swaps and fun creative challenges. You will also have access to free PDF project tutorials, discounts on many of my classes and free trainings. If you would like more information, I’m here to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at: 

Thanks for stopping by today! I’ve listed all of the products I used below. If you click on any of the product photos, it will take you to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store. 

Have a HAPPY day! :)

Christmas in July for Facebook Live

 Hello and Happy Friday! I wanted to share the projects I made for my Christmas in July Facebook Live that I did yesterday. I created some fun holiday cards using the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies along with a new bundle that will be available for a limited time starting August 1st. More details on that in the post below. I also wanted to use the beautiful Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper since it is still on a fantastic Buy 3 Get 1 Free Sale. It’s a great time to start those holiday cards. 
Christmas will be here in less than 5 short months!

Also, I have a Free PDF linked at the end of this post that shares all of the measurements and a full supply list for all of the projects.  

 First, I created this card using featuring the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and Under the Mistletoe Designer Series paper. I absolutely LOVE Christmas cards that feature color combos that are not the typical red and green. Night of Navy and Old Olive look fantastic together and I especially love the mix of gingham and plaid. 
 Next, I created this card using the Color Your Season Bundle featuring the Blended Seasons stamp set and coordinating Stitched Season Framelits Dies. This bundle will be available to purchase from August 1st-31st, or while supplies last! There is a LOT of versatility in this bundle to make projects all year long. 
I especially love those layered framelits which fit the stamped images beautifully. 
I shaded the image using Stampin’ Blends. 
Finally, I created this fun fold card, once again with the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set and another gorgeous pattern in the Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper. The inside sentiment fits perfectly behind the sentiment and it’s an easy card to create a bunch of. 

All of the products I used to create the projects will be listed on the sheets, along with the measurements. 

Also, if you put in an order in my online store ($30 minimum) by Monday July 30th, 2018 at midnight, I will send you these three make and takes for free! You will receive all of the supplies to create the projects but it will NOT include any stamped images (per Stampin’ Up! policy).  

Please use Hostess Code 2P9VFERN 

That’s how I will know that you ordered and will make sure that you get your make and takes. ($30 minimum)
If your order is over $150, please DO NOT use the Hostess Code, so that you can earn the Hostess Rewards. I will still send you the make and takes, along with an extra gift. 

Remember, orders must be placed by Monday July 30th, 2018 at midnight for these make and takes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed these projects. Remember that I’ll be back on Facebook Live next Thursday August 2nd at 2:30pm CST, so be sure to join me then. Until next time...

Have a HAPPY day!
