I’m going to list my Favorite 10 items in this mini.  It’s a really good one.  When I set about to select my top 10, I pulled out 10 post it flags—well, I ran out of flags before I finished the catalog so I had to skinny up my list.

    1. Love of Leaves Bundle, 155195, p. 49, $47.50.
    2. Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 Designer Paper, 153527, p.57, $11.50.

    5. Evergreen Forest Embossing Folder, 153576, p. 35, $10.
    6. Merry Moose Bundle, 153015, p. 27, $31.50 – I think everybody needs this one.
    7. Dove of Hope Bundle, 155158, p. 13, $49.50.
    8. Life is Beautiful stamp set, 154871, p.51, $17.

    10. Cherish the Season Bundle, 155154, p. 33.

My favorite embellishments (which I had planned to list in my Favorite 10 list, but I love too many things) are All the Trimmings Embellishments, p. 25; Wonderful Gems, p. 31; and the Sequins for Every Occasions, p. 66—these come in a box with four compartments so they aren’t all mixed together.  I think they’re a real deal.

My “Tough Old Broad” Story

My “Tough Old Broad” Story

I am writing this post on Thanksgiving and among all the other great things I am thankful for is the fact that I am here to celebrate this wonderful day.

I’m sure that most of you remember that I was in a pretty bad UTV accident in August, 2019.

I was riding in the UTV with my sister-in-law and granddaughter, Molly.  We were just taking a leisurely ride around Jeff & Julie’s property—they had bought property and built a house there. By the way, a UTV is kind of like a Razor with a bench seat across.)

We were having a tour of their property when suddenly the UTV took off.  Molly “so thankfully” had put her seatbelt on and she was sitting in the middle.  I was thrown out and the UTV went into the ditch and rolled a couple of times.  Molly stayed in—thanks to her seatbelt—and Julie was thrown out after it rolled into the ditch.

I was the most seriously injured and was flown to UC Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.  I was in the ICU for a few days and then spent a few more days in the normal area of the hospital.  In total I had five surgeries.  Today I have almost no lingering accident issues.

When our sons-in-law saw that I was pretty tough to handle all of that without too much fuss, they began calling me a tough old broad in a very loving way.  I love it and them.

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving Day.  Unfortunately, our families had to celebrate the day in separate family gatherings due to the COVID issues.  We did a lot of texting and exchanging of photos.

Hopefully, Thanksgiving next year will be “normal”.

Hugs to each of you, Pat

Original by Su Mohr

Everything is cut and embossed for you.

Start assembling by attaching the embossed white piece to the card base.

Original by Mary Jo Snyder

This one is all cut for you.  This card used the sneak peek bundles of the Quite Curvy bundle or the Quite Curvy Variety bundle, which includes the Curvy Christmas stamp set. Please let me know  if you have questions.

As you know SU doesn’t allow us to stamp card kits for you, so you’ll need to provide your own stamps or order the Curvy bundle.

Bow Punch Cherry Cobbler Card

Inspired by Kelly Jo Daugherty

I love this card as it is so simple and so beautiful.

We cut 21” of ribbon for this card.  You’ll need to kind of lay it on the package to see where to cut it into two pieces.  The ribbon is just wrapped around the “package” and attached with scotch tape.

The bows are punched out for you.  Layer the red designer paper bow onto the white bow offsetting it a little bit.  Add the bow center using a dimensional and attach the bow to the card using dimensionals.

Stamp your greeting and attach to the card with dimensionals.

Add the red gems and you’re all finished.

Gift Wrapped bundle, m12
Perfectly Plaid stamp set, 60

Copper & White Tree Card

Original by Karen Hallam

Isn’t this card beautiful?

I didn’t list the page number for the ribbon as I think the one we used is retired; however, we did put ribbon in your card kit.

Attach the embossed copper foil to the white card stock as shown.  Then add the ribbon. The embossing was done using the Evergreen Forest embossing folder.

Stamp the greeting and place it on the card as shown.

Add the white tree, and then add a few dimensionals under the cut parts of the tree.  We used mini dimensionals and left the backing on some of the dimensionals.

Add both kinds of stars and you’re finished.

November Incentive Cards Sneak Peek

Hello Friends,

These are the November incentive cards.  I wanted you to have a sneak peek in case you want to make them.

The packets aren’t out yet but will be before too long, I hope.  I was exposed to covid a week ago so we are quarantined and waiting to find a place to be tested, as my doctor ordered.  Therefore, it will probably take a bit longer for the packets to be finished.  It’s a real bummer since I’ve been so careful.

If you place an order which is $50+ and you place it online using the host code, I’ll send you a packet of four card kits.  The host code is:  MAZH44TY.  You can see the cards at www.stampinlady.com.  You’ll need to click on Blog.

Stampin’ Up! has given us a special release–the Quite Curvy Variety Bundle. There is one large bundle, which has two stamp sets as well as the dies; there’s another bundle that has one stamp set & the dies.  There’s also a beautiful set of 6 x 6 Christmas designer paper. These sets are available now as a sneak peek from the upcoming mini catalog.  They are beautiful.  Have a look!  You can see these bundles at www.stampinlady.com and by then clicking on Shop Now, Shop Here.

I’m getting ready to finalize my list of recipients, for the new mini catalog, that Stampin’ Up! will send out for me.  If you’ve purchased from me during the last year, you are already on the list.  If you haven’t purchased from me lately and you’d like for me to send one to you, just let me know and I’ll add your name to the list.

Many hugs, Pat

Swap Cards From Our Second October Lunch Bunch

Just a quick post to show you the swaps from our last Lunch Bunch.

We each furnish our own lunch and chair and we sit outside 6 feet apart.  We visit, eat, visit, swap, and visit.  I think we all love it.

I’d love to schedule one with you if you’d like.  I need for it to be at least 2 people and no more than five.  Just send me a date that would work for you, and I can spread the world and see if we get a few more (unless you have 5).

I think we’d better hurry to schedule it as it’s getting chilly up here.  Let’s try—if the weather is bad, we’ll try rescheduling.  If that doesn’t work, I can mail the swaps out.

By the way, starting tomorrow Stampin’ Up! is offering us a chance to purchase a bundle from the mini catalog that will go live in January.  It’s a wonderful bundle called Curvy Celebrations.
There are two sets available with this bundle and of course, a set of dies.

I don’t think you’ll be able to see it until tomorrow.  Then you’ll be able to see it at www.stampinlady.com , and then click on Shop Now, Shop Here.  November’s host code is MAZH44TY, unless you’re placing a club order.

If you place a $50+ order during November, I’ll send you a package of four card kits.  If your order is over $150 and not a club order, please don’t use the host code.  You can then claim the host benefits for yourself.

Please let me know if I can help.  303-888-1862 for calling or texting and 303-674-6435 for calling.

Thank you so much; I appreciate you every day.

Many hugs, Pat

This is my swap.

October Incentive Cards’ Recipes

In our last post we gave you a preview of some beautiful cards.  In this post we will give the directions and recipes. The page numbers refer to both the annual catalog and the most recent mini catalog (designated with an “m”).  If you do not have these catalogs, contact me and I will be happy to send you a set. You can also click on my “Shop Now” tab and you will be connected with Stampin’ Up! website where you can view and order from both catalogs.

As a reminder, you will receive this package of 5 card kits when you place a $50 plus order during October.  Many of you have already qualified.

For Unto Us Navy & Copper Card

Original by Linda Williamson

Isn’t this card beautiful?!?!

Please be careful as you remove the pieces from the envelope.  There are lots of little pieces in a plastic bag.

It’s going to be really easy for you to assemble.

The copper foil has been run through the Big Boss using the Evergreen Forest embossing folder so all you need to do is to adhere it to the Brightly Gleaming designer paper.  We put a piece of printer paper on top of the foil to keep it as perfect as possible–just a little tip.

There are dimensionals under the white circle.  The little copper stars are attached with glue dots.

Products used include:

For Unto Us stamp set, m 35
Peaceful Nativity bundle, m 17
Night of Navy card stock, 142
Shimmery White card stock, 153
Copper Foil,153
Brightly Gleaming designer paper,  19
Night of Navy pad, 142
Diamonds, 156
Stitched Shapes dies, 183
Evergreen Forest embossing folder, m 35

World Peace on Earth Dove Card

Original by Bethany Barnard

Score the Misty Moonlight card stock at 5 ½”.  You’ll then have a regular size card base and a short piece for the bottom.

Attach the designer designer series paper to the top piece (part of the card base) and also the extra piece of Misty Moonlight card stock.  This piece becomes the bottom front of the card.

Then you can build the front piece of the card which attaches the bottom piece to the card base.  The tip that I have is to be sure not to put adhesive on the entire front piece as you’ll just want it on each end.

Slip the world into the hole.  You’ll probably want to use little bits of glue to hold it in.

The dove is attached to the card using dimensionals.

 Products used include:

Beautiful World bundle, 26
Dove of Hope bundle, m 13
Misty Moonlight card stock, 143
Whisper White card stock, 143
Flowers for Every Season designer series paper, 148
Gold Foil, 153
Misty Moonlight pad, 143
Diamonds, 156
Dimensionals, 162
Stitched Rectangles dies, 183

 

Arrange a Wreath Birthday Melon Mambo Card

Original by Karen Logeman

This one is just as shown.  Everything is cut for you.  The embellishments are in a little plastic bag inside your envelope.

Adhere the designer paper to the white card base and then start building your wreath.  Attach the wreath with little bits of glue on the leaves.  Then add the flowers.

Attach the greeting piece. And add the jewels.

There’s a piece of white ribbon in your bag of embellishments.  Tie and bow and attach it with glue dots.

Products used include:

Arrange a Wreath bundle, 127
Here’s a Card stamp set, 39
Melon Mambo card stock, 142
Whisper White card stock, 143
Granny Apple Green card stock, 142

Original by Anne Wallace

This card is very easy.  You’ll just need to assemble it.

Attach the two pieces of designer paper to the Real Red card base.

Add the Wrapped in Texture piece of Real Red card stock.

Stamp greeting on to Very Vanilla piece and sponge the edges with Real Red pad.  Attach it.

Add the two Wonderful Gems.

Sponge, 147

Peaceful Boughs Card

Original by Brian King

Attach the embossed piece of Crumb Cake card stock to the card base.  (The reason we give you this extra piece is that after card stock is embossed, it becomes more easily torn.)

Assemble the Cherry Cobbler and designer paper layer and adhere to Crumb Cake piece using dimensionals.

Stamp your circle with a stamped off branch or other stamp of your choice and then stamp your greeting.  Attach it to the designer paper as shown.

Use glue to attach the bough.

It can certainly be used as a masculine card if you wish.

Crumb Cake card stock, 142
Cherry Cobbler card stock, 142

October Incentive Card Sneak Peek

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Here are the cards that you’ll receive kits for when you place a $50+ order during October.

I’m so excited as we have five cards for you this month, and of course, I love them all. I’ll post the ingredients and directions as soon as I get them finished.

The Plaid Tidings card (Crumb Cake & Cherry Cobbler) is a last minute addition.  I just fell in love with one very similar when I saw it.  It would make a great Christmas card or masculine birthday card.  I wanted mine to be Thinking of You so I can use it for my sending-out-cards campaign.

Please remember that there are many packages of designer paper on sale during the month of October, including Plaid Tidings—it’s regularly priced at $11.50 and is on sale now for $9.78.  It’s a really good deal.

If you’d like to place an order this month, please use host code:  P7PB9XGR.  To place an order, please go to the Shop Now tab and then click on Shop Here.  If you’re placing a club order, please use that hostess’s code.  If your order is not a club order and it’s over $150, please claim the host rewards for yourself.

Enjoy these cards—they’re so much fun!

If you need to call or text me, you may text or call me at 303-888-1862 or call at 303-674-6435.

Thank you so much; I appreciate you every day.

Many hugs, Pat
