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)
  • 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 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!!!!

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Lent 2020: Day Two

Today's post is brought to you by...COFFEE.  I'm not going to lie, I really did consider giving up coffee for Lent, but when I mentioned it to one of my best friends, his response was "well, I'll see you in 40 days!"  I was kind of shocked at his lack of support, but then I read a post that was shared with me regarding Lent and some "food for thought" and one of the bullet points read "Don't give up coffee. Jesus will forgive you, but your family might not."  Well---I heard God loud and clear on that one.  Don't give up coffee.  And I'm so very glad I did not. See today, I had a TON of things to accomplish.  We're gearing up for a big weekend and I had quite the laundry list to do.  Not only was my laundry list (and my laundry basket) huge, but I didn't sleep well last night.  I had a very restless husband, so I put myself out on the couch.  Which wasn't terrible, but it wasn't exactly great, either.  So I already

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.
