Tutorial Tuesday: Quick & Easy Thanks

There's nothing sadder to me than the winding down of Sale-A-Bration.  There were so many gorgeous items to choose from this year!  I got all of my favorites---and there are still a few more days to get yours! 

Stampin' Up! spiced things up by giving everyone new, fresh choices throughout the Sale-A-Bration Period and my absolute favorite thing this year was the Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper.  It stands alone so wonderfully on its own and the thickness, texture, and shinyness of the foil is beyond belief!  (Seriously, people, if you haven't placed your order during Sale-A-Bration yet, then this is why you need to!)

The other thing I love about this Designer Series Paper is that you don't need anything else but it to make a beautiful card.  Take a look at today's Tutorial Tuesday creation:


Other than one stamped sentiment and a touch of extra "bling" with my Mini Sequin Trim, this DSP does all the work!  Here's what you need:

Supply List:

Paper Dimensions:
  • Powder Pink Cardstock (3-3/8" x 4-7/8")
  • Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper (3-1/4" x 4-3/4")
  • Whisper White Cardstock (scrap big enough to die-cut a 1-3/4" circle)
Directions:
  • Fold your Note Card in half at the score line.
    • Helpful Hint: A Bone Folder is very helpful in getting this thicker card base to crease nice and crisp!
  • Adhere your Powder Pink Cardstock to the card base.  Next, layer on top the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  • Die-Cut your 1-3/4" circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.
  • Stamp the "Thank You" Sentiment from the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set onto the die-cut circle.
    • Usually I stamp first and die-cut second, but since the Rose Wonder Stamp Set is made with the clear Photopolymer, I can see exactly where I'm stamping.  In this case, I find it easier to stamp after my circle is die-cut.
  • Next, trim a tad bit of the Mini Sequin Trim and adhere that to the back of your circle.  Then stick your circle on and voila!  It's all done!
Seriously, folks, I made this card in like, three minutes.  Maybe less.  Which means...you can make tons of these cards in a snap and have gorgeous foiled cards on stand-by whenever you need them!  (Which is awesome, because the Note Cards & Envelopes come in packs of 20!)

AND, if you purchase all of the items above and throw in a Clear Block for that Photopolyer Stamp Set, you have yourself a $100 order and you can get TWO packs of that gorgeous Designer Series Paper for FREE!!!!

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.
