Simple Saturday: Sale-A-Bration 2018-Making it Easy!

There are some things that make life super convenient.  Like refrigerated pie crust or crescent dough sheets.  I mean, seriously!  These two things are great for kitchen short-cuts, am I right!?  Well, there's another thing that is super convenient and meant for the Papercrafting World: pre-printed card bases.  You don't have to do hardly anything to these little beauties.  Just add one or two things and BOOM!  Your card is done.  Glorious.

Did you know that this year's Sale-A-Bration Catalog offers some of the most perfect pre-printed card bases and envelopes?  Ahhh!!!  (Cue the light shining down from the Heavens, please!)  It's the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes and you get 16 of these perfect card bases, plus envelopes.  FREE!

Here's today's Simple Saturday card featuring these yummy little guys:


I literally added one strip of Berry Burst Cardstock, a schmidge of Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper, a stamped sentiment from the Fruit Basket Stamp Set with some Stampin' Dimensionals, and that was it.  Finished.  Done.  So.  Easy.

Here's the best part: all of the items I used for today's card, if purchased, gets you these cards and envelopes FREE! 

So, if you needed an excuse to get some free stuff (like you needed an excuse!) then here's your shopping list for this project:

Don't forget!  Use Hostess Code: PH7VSUWK for an EXTRA Free Gift from me!  (If your order is over $150, omit the Hostess Code, and earn your own Stampin' Rewards!  Remember: orders over $250 get an extra $25 in Stampin' Rewards, too!!!)

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.
