These Party Pandas = Love!

Sale-A-Bration is in full swing, but this is the first time I had a chance to play with the Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, Party Pandas.  This set is so cute and it is the most popular pick of Sale-A-Bration among the Papercrafting Passionista VIP's!  If you haven't seen it yet, check it out here in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

I can easily see why this set is so popular!  The whimsy of these adorable Pandas makes me want to jump up and down with glee!  I also love that black and white makes for a super stunning, simplistic, and clean looking project---even more yay for the Pandas!

Take a look at this cute card:


It could be used for a Valentine (note that I specifically colored in the heart on the middle panda for a hint of color) or a birthday card.  It could even just be for a whimsical little note card.  These pandas just work for everything!!!

Want to know how I made it?  Well, here you are, my Friend!  Read on...

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Whisper White Cardstock (8-1/2" x 4-1/4"; scored at 5-1/2") + scrap for stamping
  • Basic Black (1-3/8" x 1-3/8") x 3 + scrap for a banner
Directions:
  • The first thing I did was stamp some pandas using the Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black) onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die-cut out just the heads of the pandas I stamped.
  • I mounted the pandas onto the Basic Black Cardstock squares with a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • I stamped the "Just For You" sentiment from the Sure Do Love You Stamp Set onto the scrap piece of Basic Black Cardstock with the Craft Stampin' Ink (Whisper White) and notched the end with my Banner Triple Punch.
    • Helpful Hint: You can use any sentiment of your choosing from a Stamp Set you already own and you can notch the end with your Paper Snips if you don't have the Banner Triple Punch.
  • I then just adhered my squares and my banner onto the card and was done!  
See?  Quick, simple, but quite eye-catching and adorable!  Be sure to get your Party Pandas by placing a $50+ order and use Hostess Code PH7VSUWK to get an extra free gift from me!

Happy February, Friends!

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.
