As I’ve told you last time, SU! is having a joining special that is the best one so far! If you like a bargain this is for you! Especially since we are celebrating the 35th anniversary of the company, so they are offering either 35% off, or 35% more! Overall this is only good until the end of the month. Unquestionably this is the best deal I’ve seen, you can (in the US you can get the kit for either $64.35 where you will be able to order $125 worth of product, OR you can get it for $99 but get $168.75 worth of product!! PLUS you will be able to join the On Stage event in November for free (worth $77!). I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t tell you how to maximize your investment! Click here to join my Team!

Thank you!

Now that I’ve given you a Sneak Peek of THREE upcoming New Products, I wanted to thank you for being here! Other than being on my Live on YouTube, I love that you come here and like what I make! Figuring that you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t like what I make. Everyone knows that you can be anywhere, but you chose to be here! Thank you! Hope to see you next week!!

Sunflowers made easy!

Are you ready for Christmas? Early Bird Special!

What? Christmas already?! Well, I’m not quite ready for Christmas but I can help you make your Christmas cards AND have fun visiting, crafting and meeting new Friends! Every year I have Christmas card classes and it’s all day where we listen to Christmas music, craft, eat, laugh and generally have a ton of fun! I also suggest if you can’t make it live, you can get the fixin’s (I’ve lived in the South too long!) for the cards sent to you at your door! Another way you can be ready for Christmas is to buy the PDF’s all by themselves. Of course, If you are interested click here to see how! I have an Early Bird price so don’t wait, it expires September 1st. However, If you have seen the cards I have made, you know that these will WOW your family and friends!

Want a discount EVERY time you place a SU! order?

Surely you have heard that when you join the SU! family you get a discount on all the product! But, did you know that you DON’T have to sell anything? Of course, SU! product sells itself, but all you would have to do is share/stamp with your friends. Certainly you CAN sell, but if it makes you uncomfortable, just have friends over and have a crafting day! Basically that is what I did for the first 5 years of my 0ver 20 years being with SU!

Because I don’t like to feel pushy I would have my friends come over to stamp and the product is so good that they wanted it too! Eventually you may want to do more, but you never have to! I have people in my team who have NEVER had a ‘party’! If this is something you would like, join the Tedder Bears by clicking this link!

Have you heard about my Club?

Overall, I want you to consider the BEST club you could join! As has been noted before, my club is called The Stampin’ Besties, and you get between $21-$23 worth of product like DSP, ribbon and Embellishments! But, that’s not all, you get the card packets with everything pre-cut for 6 cards! Moreover, the Holiday Mini is coming out and we will be using some of those bundles! The cost is $40 for in person, and $48 for delivery to your door! Every card is beautiful and some have techniques or fancy folds! If you would like to read more about it, click here!

Thank you!

Basically I want to thank you for spending your time with me. I hope you liked the post – WOW your friends with these handmade cards that I shared with you today! I know you have plenty of things to do and the fact you spent them with me, blows me away! Thank you!!

Specifically, the latter is to reward those who order and the 1st is for everyone who subscribes to my Newsletter for free! I equally love them both, however they both rock for different reasons.

It’s called Peek-a-Boo because when you open the card a surprise message appears! My niece is having a baby I plan on sending this in order that she knows I’m happy for her!

Peek-a-Boo card

Peek-a-Boo!  When you open this card a surprise text appears!
Isn’t the Elephant too cute!?

Friends Forever

May not be a peek-a-Boo but it is sooo cute!!
Friends Forever


Both of these cards of course use the Stamp set from SU! called Elephant Parade. I especially love the Peek-a-Boo card, but the other one makes me smile! I love the idea certainly of an elephant leaving peanuts (his favorite snack by the way) to his best friend! Of course my favorite snack is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, I’ll share too!

Are you a Happy Shopper?

As I’ve said in the past, I especially LOVE being a Demo with SU! But, did you know you can join and NOT do any classes? Or, you can join and just get that happy discount for something that certainly makes you happy! The reason I joined almost 19 years ago in brief is I wanted the discount! I stamped with my friends and ended up on the whole, making new ones! Basically who doesn’t love a discount!? Let me know if you of course want to hear more!

One other thing

IF you shop with me, you will in truth get a hand made card from me. But you will also get a PDF of 16 cards/projects in this situation you will love! Of course you must buy at least $35 to get it, which realistically is super easy! In any case I can do that in my sleep! I so appreciate your support and of course want to Thank you!


Lastly I want to thank you for being here on my Blog. Of course my hope is you will love what I share that in fact you will want to return! Also, if you come to one of my Live’s on YouTube you can possibly win one of my cards! I pick two people during my Live who’re chatting with me to mail a card I made that day! My hope is in this case you will want to return! I’m off next week, but I hope to see you the following Thursday!

Fancy Fold, Cuteness & Sponging!

Hey Guys!, I’m making Paper Pumpkin April Alternatives 2022 from my kit today! You can watch it here! As always, the kit has really great images to stamp but I’m super excited for the sentiments in this one! As I’ve told you before, my daughter is graduating from College in just a few weeks! The sentiments in this kit are unquestionably perfect for someone about to start something new!

This kit is perfect for graduating, having a baby, getting married you name it! I love making alternatives for Paper Pumpkin and this April kit was so perfect that I thought I should leave it as is! Of course I DID come up with a few alternatives and I’m thrilled with how they came out! Be that as it may, I got help from Rachel Tessman on ONE of my cards, I only changed a few things! Thank you Rachel! Get your Paper Pumpkin Subscription here!

Copy REAL Picture

Beach scene Google Pics recreated with stamps!

Hey Guys, of course today I am going to show you how to copy a REAL picture using stamps! Earlier on Google I saw a picture of a beach with palms and the ocean.

I'm going to copy this REAL picture using stamps!
Google Pic I’m copying

Copy a REAL picture!

Moreover, after seeing my card the only thing I am missing is the clouds! However everything else I included. Finally below you will see the card I made plus be able to get this stamp Bundle at a DISCOUNT, but only for a limited time! Also, I am offering a free PDF to anyone who stops by and reads this post. To start with, I wanted to make a Beach Scene using this stamp set (Paradise Palms), but didn’t know what to make. Earlier, I googled Beach scenes and the above picture jumped out at me. Correspondingly the Pdf below will step you through my process, but you can indeed also see me make it here.

My copy of REAL picture!

I copied a REAL picture with Stamps from SU!
I hope you love it as much as I do!

Card 2

However for my 2nd card, I wanted to highlight the Dies in the set. Indeed, I am not going to copy a REAL picture this time! Basically, I found a card on Pinterest from Tina Wardell, that inspired me. Evidently, when using the Blending Brushes, I chose three SU! colors that I thought looked like a night sky falling. Moreover, I Divided the space into 3 so I could make the Palm tree pop, check out my Pdf to see how or again watch my video.

Little Paradise

As I said earlier, get this Bundle (stamp set & Dies) at a 10% discount, if you purchase before June! It won’t be discounted once the new Catalog comes out. Equally, If you decide that you’d like to buy them, I would love it if you would make me your Demonstrator! In short, if you buy $35 or more from my OnLine Store you will also get a PDF from me containing 16 projects with step by step instructions along with color photos of the projects! Therefore, here is a sneak peek!

Wrapping it up!

Again thank you for stopping by. of course, if there is anything you would like me to use or a technique you’d like to see, leave me a message and I’ll do my best! Indeed, I love a challenge! Otherwise I will try and think of what you would like! Surely you won’t mind letting me know what you would like to see! Especially, I love to get feedback! Another key point is I love to learn!
