Nuggets, Gifting, & ‘How To’!

Hey there, m’friends!

I’m back again with another quick & easy gifting idea … and … another video tutorial to share!

Now this gifty happens to be “sweet”.   And believe it or not …. ZERO Hershey’s Nuggets were injured, maimed, bitten or eaten during the production or preparation of the following projects or video!   From Millan.Net Yep! I speak the truth.

These little gifties are easy-peasy … and a basket full can be created in a very short time.  Vary the number of nuggets, change the colors or the season, get natural with twine or all prettied up with beautiful ribbons!

Whatever you do, have fun!  Turn on some Christmas music, sip some hot spiced cider, and bring out those Christmas papers & ribbons!

The ‘Pumpkin’ at It’s Finest!

Hold on!   This is merely “my” own little opinion.   ;)

But I honestly do believe that the newest arrival in my mailbox .. the latest My Paper Pumpkin … is one of the very bestest MPP boxes so far!

This weekend’s Christmas Card Buffet kept me busy & happy until evening yesterday … when I discovered this monthly box of creativity in my mailbox.  I already had an idea of the contents, since those who received this box-of-fun a day or two before I did were more than delighted to share pics.  I was planning to prepare a video today, but …. Stampin’ Up! has already produced a fabby video sharing the fun of this latest arrival!  So, I’m here to share the video with all of you!

If you would like to receive this monthly box of ready-to-create fun, just check out this informative link.  When you click the Join here button, please remember to select me as your demonstrator.  ;)

And now, for your creative enjoyment …

Let’s Make Gift Card Envies!

Hey, hey, Stampy Friends!

Mr. Weatherman is convinced that the “polar vortex” is pouring itself across the USA early this week, from North to South.  NOT a snow bunny here … I’ll plan on stampin’, hot cider, and/or hazelnut coffee while I attempt to be outside just as little as possible.

In that case, here’s an idea that you might add to your stampin’ time during cozy creative times ahead!

Don’t think for even a minute that I’m already decorating for Christmas just yet.  Not at all.  But as many stampers & crafters have been doing, “creating” for Christmas is in full swing here.


Yeah …. once I got started, then the ideas started rushing out!  My favorite is the “WIN” style.  Can you guess how I’ll be using those?

Imagine various Christmas papers used for each of at least 4 of these on my tree at Christmas … one for each of my two children and their spouses.  No names … just “WIN”.   They’ll each choose their own gift envelope.

Inside?    Did you guess??

Lottery tickets!

Here’s how you can make your own personalized gift card treats in time for Christmas!  Enjoy!

I hope you’ll enjoy creating with the oh-so-easy Gift Card Envelope & Trims Dies!

Feathers by the ‘CASE’!

Wow!    We’re already wrapping up the first week of November!

For all of you countdown fans, we’ll have SIX more Fridays before Christmas!

I’ve been steadily working toward Christmas-themed classes & events recently, but here’s a project totally unrelated to a holiday.  Yay!

I tried & tried, but in the end, I couldn’t resist the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating Feathers Framelits Dies in the Holiday Catalog.  Both wood mount and clear mount rubber stamps are available in these fabby feathers.  And I’ll be honest … this Holiday Catalog is my all-time favorite ‘mini’ catalog … over a lot of years!

Now here’s the best part …

 My version is actually my CASE of this card from the artists at Stampin’ Up!  I love the way they support demonstrators in every way possible, including providing readily available inspiration.

My version used:


 Extra Notes!:


Happy weekend, everyone!

It’s a Birthday Bonanza!

From Millan.Net

It’s My Birthday Bonanza!!


“I” had the birthday, and “You” get presents!!

Nope … it isn’t my birthday today … I’ve just celebrated, and now it’s time to share the “cake”!  

Oh.  Okay … so I can’t really send everyone a piece of cake.  
Hmmmmm … Next best thing … Presents!


HOSTESS CODE — VTBKXUYG    Use this hostess code when you order from me throughout November, and receive a free gift from me!  


Your first free Birthday Bonanza gift is  a ready-to-assemble Owl Card Kit from me for every $50 worth of SU products you order before tax and shipping!  All you’ll need is adhesive and a few Stampin’ Dimensionals and you’re ready to create!   Your Owl Card Kit(s) may be in other colors, but they’re all color coordinated and are truly a “Hoot” when they’re all assembled.

**Glitz-glam-shaZaam!**  Your second free Birthday Bonanza gift is brand new container of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful glitter!  You will receive either Silver Stampin’ Glitter or Gold Stampin’ Glitter!    You will receive your free glitz in December, as I will order your collective Glitz-glam-shaZaam at the end of my birthday bonanza promotion.

About those Owl Cards:  These have been so popular at my recent events that my own samples are practically paper-squinting from all of the owl paparazzi’s camera flashes.  That’s basically the story of when my Owl Card Kit for the Birthday Bonanza was born hatched!   The kits are already prepared, and will be sent to your shipping address upon my receipt of Stampin’ Up!’s order verification that I receive when an online order is submitted.  They’re ready to Hoot!!

Special Note:  If your order is over $150, please do not apply the hostess code listed above, as you would miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards/Hostess $$ if you use that code.  Never fear!  You will still receive my free gift in addition to the free products you’ll receive from Stampin’ Up!  

From Millan.Net    Psssssssssssssst!  Remember to take advantage of my Customer Rewards Program as well!  Oh yes … that definitely applies with your November Birthday Bonanza orders as well! 


There you have it!   Enjoy your ‘birthday presents‘!
