Final Thank You Thursday 1-Day Sale!

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you’ve been having a great October and if you celebrate Halloween are all ready for it!  Today is the LAST THANK YOU THURSDAY and so check out the fun ribbon deals below!

I also thought I’d share what kept me busy last night…. we finally got around to carving the pumpkin we picked up from the pumpkin patch!

Nicholas knew exactly what image he wanted to draw and so he helped me design our “mad face” pumpkin.  I even let him do a little carving with the itty-bitty-careful you don’t bent it-carving knife. 2013-10-30 19.58.56

And while Caitlin didn’t care much about carving the pumpkin, she thought it was cool after the candle was in!

So, that took a lot of my evening, so I’ll be back a little bit later this morning to share some CUTE halloween swaps I received at Founder’s Circle (since I totally forgot to photo graph them last night).

In the meantime, don’t miss today’s LAST THANK YOU THURSDAY!

Favorite Cards using Oh, Hello

As I was looking through the 25% off Stamp sets with a customer last week, I spotted the Oh, Hello stamp set and remembered how when I originally saw this stamp set in the catalog, I thought it looked like a pretty boring stamp set.  I couldn’t picture how it would come together into anything particularly cute….


and then we were given the set at Leadership last year and I saw some samples with it….. and I totally changed my tune!

So, I thought I would share some of my quick and easy cards I’ve made with this set to show how it is a bit more fun than it may seem at first!

Almost no-layer card with Oh, Hello

Masking with the Oh, Hello stamp set

Using up your scraps with sentiments from Oh, Hello

Press clay flowers and it coordinates with the Oval framelits too!


I’m also realizing that I use the Thank You sentiment A LOT! ha ha ha.  But I guess I have a lot to be thankful for, so I need them. Smile

And don’t forget, tomorrow is the LAST DAY of the 25% off Sale and my Anniversary Week giveaway!

If you’d like to enter the giveaway, all you need to do is:

  • Visit my Online Store to grab these great deals and use the hostess code R2XQXU3
  • Email me which of the goodies above you want to order and I’ll be putting together a group order.
  • On monday, if we have enough orders placed, I will draw a name for at least $25 in hostess benefits and let you get more free goodies!

Mini Composition Notebook Cases from Stamp Cases

Yesterday I had grand visions of all I was going to get done and all the projects I was going to make and videos I was going to finish editing (that’s the sad part, I have the videos recorded, I just haven’t edited them yet).  But instead it turned into a day of finishing prepping for my holiday card class and working with my mom to finish planning for a craft fair in November.

Its been a blast to figure out fun projects to make and pick out papers, stamps, and designs for the different projects.  One of the projects I was having a ton of fun with yesterday was working on decorated mini composition notebooks.

Mom and I were trying to figure out how to do the insides so we had a “Craft-Off” and each used the same paper for the cover and did our version of the inside.

Here is mine:

Mini composition notebook case with Happy Day

Here is hers:

Mini composition notebook case with Simply Sketched

So these are the insides of a Stampin’ Up! clear mount stamp case (we got the extras you can buy in packs of 4).  We used a piece of designer paper for the cover of the case and then on the inside used the same paper to:

  • Decorate the cover of a mini-composition notebook
  • Line the inside of a ballpoint pen
  • Create a pen holder to keep it from rolling around
  • and in mom’s case, create a cute sentiment inside the case

Both of us really like the Happy Day stamp set for their sentiments for this project and I thought the images in the set made for cute accents as well. 


Happy Day – item #130294 (130297 clear)
25% off!  $16.46 w/ $12.71 c

So I don’t think we have a winner for her craft off because while I like my version, I think hers is really pretty too!  Though I think she had the secret weapon of the Simply Sketched hostess set because you can pretty much never go wrong with that set!

Now to just finish decorating the front!

But I had so much fun picking out paper and stamps for the rest of these cases that we are making for the craft fair and I love the idea of having a notebook and pen in my purse that isn’t going to get all smashed up, dirty, and lots in the my “Mary Poppins bag” that I carry. Smile  Hopefully everyone else at the craft fair feels the same way!

25 Stamps for 25% off, Weekly Deals, and a Giveaway!

You’ve probably been hearing about how this year is Stampin’ Up!’s 25th anniversary… which is pretty impressive when you think about it.  Honestly, I can’t even imagine the processes that it would have taken when this started without internet, email, and youtube to share ideas, techniques, place orders, and even to just hear about new specials!  Kind of makes me wonder what it will be like in another 25 years when we consider how we are living now to be quaint. Winking smile

Anyway, October 25th is the actual anniversary date and so this week they are doing an extra promotion this week and I’m celebrating along with them, so make sure you check out my giveaway too! 

Order any of the discounted stamps below using the hostess code – R2XQXU3G or emailing me your order to be entered to win $25 in hostess benefits!  Score!

Merry Little Christmas for a Holiday Stamp-a-Stack

Coming up on Thursday I have a Holiday Card stamp-a-stack planned where everyone is going to make up to 4 different designs of cards including this one: 

I was going for something that was easy to make a lot of without taking a ton of time or wearing out your arm, and this is one of the designs that came about.

I loved the snowy/foggy forest look I got by stamping with Basic Grey ink and then re-stamping the tree (of course, from the amazing Lovely as a Tree), before I inked again.  And by having the trees stamped on a separate piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I didn’t have to worry about what happened to the bottoms of the trees!

Add some stitched grosgrain ribbon around the Very Vanilla layer for a pop of color and color in the sentiment with markers and you get just the right balance of color and snowy day. Smile 

Stampin’ Up! Supplies Used
Stamps – Lovely as a Tree, Merry Little Christmas
Ink – Basic Grey, Basic Black marker, Real Red marker, Gumball Green marker
Paper – Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Accessories – Real Red stitched grosgrain ribbon

Want to make some Christmas cards?

Join me on Thursday (10/24/2013) for a night of stamping in Redmond, WA.  We’ll be making these cards plus one more super cute snowflake sparkle card!

RSVP for the Holiday Stamp-a-Stack here

Can’t make it in person, I offer kits as well!  Email me at jennifer@nwstamper and I’ll get you all set up!
