Floral Fest and Lovely Words Pizza Box

Hello everyone! Can you believe it? only FOUR days until this catalog goes LIVE! I can't wait to put in my first order!

Today, I have another project to share with you from my recent BINGO event. It features lots of new products.


This is a Mini Pizza Box! It holds small things like Hersey Nuggets or maybe a large cookie. On the top, we decorated it with Lemon Lime Twist Fresh Florals DSP and a Lovely Words die cut. The colors we used are Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White. 

We backed the words with a Whisper White oval and added a mini paper clip and small piece of Lemon Lime Twist Woven Ribbon. I didn't design the box- that comes from Pootles and you can find her tutorial here

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Monday!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop- Tranquil Tulips

Hello everyone and welcome to the May addition of the fancy Friday Blog Hop! I am so excited because we have ONE WEEK for the new catalog to go live! My list is SO LONG! Have you made your its yet? 

Today, we are featuring the In Colors and specifically color combos using the In Colors. I chose o use new Berry Burst along with Old Olive and Bermuda Bay! 
I chose to use the beautiful Hostess Set called Tranquil Tulips. How beautiful are those flowers? They are a two step stamping set. That means you layer stamped images over one another to get the desired effect. It's actually pretty easy because the stamps are Photopolymer (completely clear) and you can see where you are stamping. I cut some of them out and popped them up on Dimensionals. 

Also featured here is a new Designer Series Paper called Color Theory. Doesn't it look like a paint swatch from the hardware store?

The words I stamped around the circle are actually from another set called Eastern Beauty. I wanted to get a circular text and these seemed to work well. The ribbon is new- Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron Ribbon. I actually cut off the long edge and pulled out the fibers and tied a bow with them. I love doing this! Not all ribbons will do it, but those does! And lastly, those sparkly dots! You are going to LOVE these! They are called Glitter Enamel Dots. In fact, they are so amazing, the SU Demos actually depleted the entire inventory during the pre order period! Ha! They will be back in stock on June 5th though. Yay! 

I actually stamped the images again on the inside. This sentiment in also from the Eastern Beauty stamp set as well. 

Thanks for stopping by tonight! Make sure you keep hopping along. Next up is my friend Becky

Stampin' Bingo

Hello everyone! Today I can finally share some of our Bingo pictures from last weekend. I had to wait until last night's Online Bingo event was over because I didn't want to spoil anything! 

Everyone received a swag bag with Metallic Epoxy Stickers, a bolt of twine, a package of Cello Bags, a package of Dimensionals and a package of Mini Paper Clips. In their bag, they also had four make and take packets. They each received two bingo cards and a door prize coupon. 

For my local event, we are able to play eight games. I had all the prizes set out, plus a few extras in case of some ties- which we did have! 

Our last game is always a blackout bingo and the prize is BIG! This was this year's grand prize. 

Lots of fun door prizes as well! 

We played a few games, made a few projects, played a few more games, made a few projects... We also had lots of yummy snacks to eat! 

So of eight games, we had two different people win twice! Norma got two prizes that night! 

Lisa seems to win every single time I have Bingo! She's a lucky girl! 

And speaking of LUCKY! This lady won twice and then won the Blackout Grand Prize! And, in a weird twist, she has actually won the Grand Prize at the last THREE Bingo events! Isn't that CRAZY! She claims she never wins anything except when she comes to my events. I think she needs to play the lottery!! 

I will show you the projects that we made over the next few days. Here is the first one we made. It features all new products from the upcoming Annual catalog! 
Paper: Tanquil Tide and Dapper Denim Cardstock, Eastern Palace DSP, Happy Birthday Thinlit and Tranquil Tide Woven Ribbon.

Pieces & Patterns and Pick a Pattern DSP (Sneak Peek)

Hello everyone! Today I have a quick and fun project to share with you. I created these little goodies last week for my BINGO event. As you know, I do a local event and an online event and the online event is tonight! So, I think it's safe to show you these little surprises that were in the kits! 

I used the Pick a Pattern DSP and the Pieces and Patterns stamp set. I created simple little tags to stick on to little cookie packages. Easy right? I also used the Layering Oval Frameits and the banner framelit that comes with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Collection. And of course, I can't do anything with out a bow, so it has a Basic Black Baker's Twine bow. 

And here they are all piled in to a cute crate. Just a fun little treat- nothing over the top, but just a little something to say "thanks." Hope they looked them! I will have lots of pictures tomorrow of my local Bingo event. It was a BLAST! 

These products can be found in the 2017 Annual Catalog. It goes live next Thursday afternoon!! Can't wait! Do you need a copy of the catalog? Email me to request one!

Colorful Seasons (Sneak Peek)

Good morning! Today, I want to share a card I recently made for a downline whose husband was severely injured a fire. He is a fire fighter who was battling a 4 alarm fighter and was trapped inside the building. Thankfully, he was rescued, but he has a pretty long road ahead of him with many injuries. His wife is a member of my downline. My wonderful team came together to collect funds to purchase some meals for them in days to come. We needed a special card to put that in, so I pulled out my new Colorful Season stamp set and got to work. 

I used Calypso Coral and Soft Suede to stamp the flowers and branches. The DSP is also a Sneak Peek from the new catalog. It's called Delightful Daisy. 

It's hard to see in the first picture, but I did add some tiny pears to the center of the flowers. This set is available to everyone on June 1st. It's a wonderfully versatile set and also has coordinating framelits. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great afternoon!
