Stampin Up, Petal Prominade, Beautiful Destination

Hello Friends!

This week's travels has certainly led me and my family and I to an amazing destination, Alaska!

This is an all expense paid trip that I earned for my husband and I.  We are also taking my daughter and mom along!  I am sure it will be the experience of a lifetime!

This is a card I made for a friend who is going through a rough time emotionally.  I really am praying she finds the road she is supposed to be on.

I stamped it with Petal Pink Ink, and used the big shot to die cut the flower out. I will be emailing the directions for FREE to my constant contact email list either this Friday (tomorrow) or next!  (still working out the details before I leave)!

Thank you so much for visiting today and if you are not on my email list you can sign up over on the right hand side bar, or you can use this text signup tool below so you don't miss a thing!

Thank you for being a part of my stamping world!

Love,

Special of the week ~ Half Off Paper Pumpkin! Plus, July Paper Pumpkin Video

Hello Friends!
My daughter Alexis (age 13) made a fabulous video of this month's paper pumpkin, then made up all the projects. Didn't she do a great job?

If you are interested in trying it out, I told her she is better at these videos than I am, and I would give her the commission from anyone who signs up to get a kit this month!

Isn't she talented for only being 13? I'm one grateful mom.

Here's the link to get your kit at 1/2 price for next month!

Thanks for visiting today!

Love,
Selene

Product of the Week Tufted Embossing Folder


Product of the week is the Tufted Embossing Folder! Create a nice 3D effect with this embossing folder.
It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design. 
Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders take embossing to the next level, with deeper, more detailed impressions than standard embossing folders—great for card fronts and accents.
* 1 folder
* 4-1/2" x 6-3/16" (11.4 x 15.7 cm)
* Use with Big Shot

If you need this one today, you can check it out in my store.  Please use the current host code for a surprise in the mail from me! 

Thanks so much!
Love,
Selene

Happy Monday!

This week's featured product of the week is Designer Paper.  It is featured in so many projects that I do!  With new crafty friends, when they have trouble deciding what to order, I tell them to start simple with a few steps.

Newbie ordering guide:
  1. Pick a stamp set and coordinating Designer Paper that you like. 
  2. Look and see what colors come in the pack. 
  3. Order 2 of the colors and a neutral, meaning whisper white or very vanilla (to match).
  4. Don't forget envelopes and to look at accessories to match that kit!
When you start with just one set of colors, everything you have matches and you can make a TON of cards!  Below is a better look at what is on Sale! 

When you add these papers to your cart, the fourth paper needs to be separate for the computer to register what you would like.  Keep that in mind when placing your order.
