These August Promotions Ending on the 31st

These August promotions are ending and you don't want to miss out!

First, is the Bonus Bucks promotionFor every $50 you order, you'll receive a coupon worth $5 to use in September.  It'll arrive via email and make sure you save/print out that email!  You can even forward it to me and I'll save it for you!  Lose the coupon code, and you lose the $5 because I won't have access to it and Stampin' Up! won't have it either!  And since the Holiday catalog becomes available on September 5, you'll want those coupons!

Next is the Color Your Season promotion.  These are bundles (wood and clear mount Blended Seasons stamp set with Stitched Seasons framelit dies) or you can purchase them individually--but you'll save 10% on the bundle!


These stamps are suitable for making cards/projects for any season!

There are also new Watercolor pencils available during August.  I do not know if these will ever be available later in a catalog but right now Stampin' Up! says they are going away after this promotion.

Don't miss out on these great deals!


Paper Pumpkin 50% Off Your First Month

Are you familiar with Paper Pumpkin?  It's a monthly kit that arrives in your mailbox around the 15th of the month.  The kit includes everything you need to complete the kit--stamps, cardstock, diecuts, embellishments, adhesive.  It's a wonderful value at ~$20/month (depends on the tax in your state).  

Once you subscribe, you manage your account the way you want--need to suspend for a month?  You can do it.  (I know the September kit is going to be about Halloween, so if you don't want that one, you can suspend for that month!)  Even when the kits are not to my personal preference, I can always find something to make with all the parts.  AND you don't have to make the kit like the full-color instructions.  Make it however YOU like!  

Just getting started in stamping or cardmaking?  These kits can give you a leg up!  If you think you can't be creative, these kits will prove you wrong!  

AND RIGHT NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO SUBSCRIBE!  Stampin' Up! is offering the first month of your subscription at half price!

THIS OFFER ENDS ON AUGUST 10 so don't miss out!

Color Your Season

Stampin' Up! has come out with an exclusive, limited edition bundle that you can purchase as supplies last or until the end of the month.  This Color Your Season bundle has stamps that are suitable for all the seasons and dies that not only cut out some of the stamps, but great stitched dies to use in any way you choose!


You can purchase as a bundle or separately

Don't delay!  These will be gone before you know it!  Check out my Pinterest board for these stamps/dies!


The once-yearly Bonus Days are BACK!  You don't want to miss out on this great promotion!  For every $50 you order during the month of August, you'll receive a $5 coupon to use during September.  And since the Holiday Catalog goes live on September 5, you'll want those coupons to save on your holiday orders!


Stampin' Up! will email you the coupons (so make sure they have a valid email when you order).  You will need to save that email with your coupon codes because I won't have access to them if you lose them.  You can print out your codes and put them in a safe place ( and try to remember where that is LOL!). 

You can also email those codes to me at and I will save them for you!  Then in September when you are ready to order, just let me know and I'll send those coupon codes right back to you!

Anyone need a holiday catalog?  Just click on the tab above to request one or click here and I will be happy to mail one out to you!

New Host Code

Use the host code if your order is below $150 and I will send a special surprise to all who use it!

This Deal is Going Away

Stampin' Up!'s July promotions end on the 31st and you don't want to miss out!  There are two great promotions that will save you money (and who doesn't like to save money?).

First, is the Starter Kit promotion.  For $99 you can choose $125 worth of products and Stampin' Up! will GIVE you FREE 10 ink pads in the color family of your choice!  WOW!!!  This raises the value of your kit to over $200 so you are saving 50%!  I bought my kit because I wanted to save 20% on all my orders.  I thought about it and said "why should I pay someone else for my stuff?"  There is no further obligation after purchase of the kit.  If you have any questions about what all it entails, I'll be happy to answer any questions.  You can email me at and I will be happy to help.  While the starter kit is always a great deal, this promotion is the best I've ever seen!

Here are the color families you have to choose from:

The second promotion is for pretty papers (Designer Series Paper).  You can buy 3 and get 1 FREE, saving 25% on the papers.  Add that to your kit and get even more savings!  Here are the papers available for this promotion

You can purchase these papers by clicking on the "shop" above or at

Don't miss out on these wonderful promotions!

Beachy Decor

I recently redecorated my guest bathroom and decided to make some decor pieces using Stampin' Up! products (both retired and active).  I found some frames with rope hangers at World Market (no longer available, so sorry) and thought they would work out great for my purpose.



Here are some close-ups of the individual frames
