What I Love

Do you know what I love?  FREE!
And this set is just that!
Here is a cute little video from Stampin' Up!





Speaking of FREE!  This paper is too!  And it is going away soon!  Shop for $50 and get either one of these as your FREE Saleabration item!




Limited-time Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper!  Looking at these samples you will realize you have to have it! This paper gives you two distinct looks—marbling on one side and watercolor on the other. 

Also, no two sheets are alike! Try using small but impactful accents or entire backgrounds that showcase the beautiful patterns to show it off in all sorts of ways. And keep in mind that this Sale-A-Bration reward is only available through February 15, 2016.

Day Five of What to do with Ink Refills

I had a stamper call me the other day.
She found me on my YouTube channel.
I was thrilled that she felt comfortable enough to pick up the phone and call me!

I hope that you feel that way too, that you can pick up the phone and just call me!
