2017 Holiday Catalog LIVE Now!

It's here!  It's here!  I'm UBER excited to share Stampin' Up!'s NEW 2017 Holiday Catalog!  Last year, I loved pretty much everything there is to love about the Holiday Catalog, but this year...oh this year, I DO love everything in the Holiday Catalog!!!

I really feel like it's super early to start thinking about Christmas (I know, I'm weird) and since I LOVE Fall, I just can't skip over it.

So where are the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, already!?  I got coffee from Starbucks today and they still don't have it yet!  Ahh!!  So, I settled for a Hazlenut Latte, instead.  (The struggle is real, my friends.)

Well, since I didn't get my Pumpkin Spice Latte, I'm writing about a fall card I created a little while ago honoring my Pumpkin Spice Lattes.  (Those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen it!)

For those who don't, here's what it looks like:


Let's make this cute little Gem!

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock (4-1/2" x 3")
  • Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (4-3/8" x 2-7/8")
    • I also fussy-cut a pumpkin from the DSP
  • Crumb Cake Cardstock (3" x 1")
    • Plus a scrap large enough to stamp and cut out the Coffee Cup
  • Scrap of Early Espresso Cardstock large enough to stamp and cut out the Coffee Lid
  • Scrap of Whisper White Cardstock large enough to diecut out the Coffee Cup Sleeve
  • Scrap of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock large enough to diecut out the largest Stitched Oval
Directions:
  • We'll start by folding over your Very Vanilla Notecard and adhering the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock to the front of your card base.  Aren't these notecards wonderful!?  I love them!  They are pre-scored, pre-cut and the set comes with envelopes!  This is utter perfection, in my book!
  • Now adhere down your cut piece of Painted Autumn DSP to the Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.  Your foundation is complete!
  • Stamp the "Hello Fall..." sentiment (from the Merry Cafe Photopolymer Stamp Set) onto the middle-ish of your Crumb Cake Cardstock banner piece in Early Espresso Ink.  Notch the right end with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhere it to the back of the center of the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock Oval you diecut out using your Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  • Using the Early Espresso Ink again, stamp the coffee lid and cup (again, from the Merry Cafe Photopolymer Stamp Set) onto the scraps of Early Espresso Cardstock and Crumb Cake Cardstock.  You can then assemble all of these pieces to diecut out (along with your Whisper White Cardstock) and run it through your Big Shot!  Time-Saver--Woot!!  (See my example below)
  • Assemble your Coffee Cup, adhere it to your Stitched Oval, affix that to your card foundation and then finish it off with your Fussy-Cut Pumpkin (and a Stampin' Dimensional!), a hint of Wink of Stella Glitter Brush on your Pumpkin, and a Faceted Gold Gem.
I can just smell the Pumpkin Spice in the air!!  Can't. Wait!

And if you want to see more of these lucsious goodies in the Holiday Catalog, email me and I'll mail you one for FREE!  Plus, check out my Instagram Feed and Facebook Page this week; I'll be posting a new project that features these goodies every day this week.

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder.

I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!  After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born.


I imagine you can see why this is not just my most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot!

Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday!

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*.

And just like clothing, one size and one style does not fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best for your eyes!

Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes:

Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best!Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, there's no gl…

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space?

I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability.

Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.
