You  just might get tired of seeing the sunflower from Painted Harvest because I love it so much!

But isn’t it GORGEOUS!?! And the little acorn on the envelopes is just precious as well 😀 I combined Fresh Fig with Crushed Curry for the petals and Soft Suede for the centers. I think I will be putting this card in with the Holiday catalogs I send out to my customers. But then I will need to make more so you might be seeing more designs with different color combinations. I have been seeing all kinds of beautiful color combinations for this sunflower on Pinterest and Instagram.  Other demos are loving this stamp set just as much as me! So as I mentioned in my Facebook Live last week, if you like this bundle, I highly recommend you order it as soon as possible beginning Sept. 1, 2017 as I believe it WILL go on back order quickly. You can’t say I didn’t warn you!

My favorite bundle from the upcoming Holiday catalog is . . .

Night in Bethlehem! It was the first bundle that I just knew I MUST get! I will likely use it for my personal Christmas cards this year 🙂 and here is my first card made using it:

Our new mini dimensionals were PERFECT to raise the front layer of buildings onto the back layer to create the adorable little town scene. I used black behind the windows and doors but am thinking of trying a different color, maybe yellow? Not sure, but I know I want to play more with this bundle.

I can’t wait until all of you can see the catalog!  It has SO many wonderful new products to help you create amazing projects for this holiday season! While this is my favorite bundle, I already have several other bundles (and I want to get more) that I am enjoying as well which I will share with you soon.


I did it!

I faced my fears and did my first Facebook Live this morning! And then posted it on YouTube! So out of my comfort zone! So here it is:

Please be kind, it’s my first video EVER! And I’m so not a fan of seeing myself on camera!


Need some inspiration for Carols of Christmas?

I have made just 2 cards so far with this bundle.  With the kids home, I have very little time to “play” :(.  I really DO love the large sentiments in this set! They make for quick and easy cards, the only kind I have time for at the moment. Enjoy!

So, are you ready to order this wonderful bundle and get started on your holiday projects? I have to make at least 100 more cards by November so I had better get going!

YOU can order a bundle BEFORE the new Holiday Catalog goes live!

Yep! As demonstrators, we often get to order new product early, before a catalog goes live.  Well, this month, customers get to do just that, too 🙂 During August, you, too, can order the Carols of Christmas bundle!

I just love the size of the sentiments in this stamp set, don’t you!?! And the shadow on the text is quite nice as well. The dies will go well beyond the holidays, too.  The trees, deer and border dies will be awesome for masculine cards throughout the year!

I’ve shown this tip before, but this is how I store my bundles, when the dies specifically go with the stamp set.

This way I can find the dies quickly. I also store extra images that I have cut in the case for future projects. I haven’t yet done it with this bundle, but I usually also outline the dies on the magnetic sheet so I can tell when a piece is missing.

This bundle is part of a mega suite you will soon see in the new Holiday catalog.  You are going to LOVE this catalog! Customers should be receiving their copies in the next two weeks, if I have an address on file.  If you have ordered from me online, but chose “no contact”, I’m sorry, but I don’t have an address to send anything. I feel just awful because I know at least one customer who won’t be receiving a catalog as he/she chose “no contact” :(.
