No…..I’m not retiring, yet. But, I have Stampin’ Up! Products that ARE retiring at the end of this month. I know I will miss these sets but, it allows Stampin’ Up! To bring in new and exciting products. More about that later. At Thursday’s retirement sale you will get a chance to shop my BOGO sale, check out the new catalog, and do a make and take from the new products. The fun starts at 7:00! Hope to see you there!
It’s that time of the Stampin’ Up! Year……time for BOGO – buy one get one!!! It’s a perfect opportunity for you to acquire retiring stamps, paper, and embellishments from my stash. Then for what you spend there, I give you a gift certificate to use in the NEW Annual Catalog that you can redeem after June 1. What a great deal for you!!
Here is a list of my stamps that are retiring and the purchase price. I’ll have the remaining items at my Retirement Sale on Thursday. If you can’t make it Thursday, you can let me know and I’ll send a PayPal Invoice. First one to pay gets the item.
Do you love Designer Series Paper? So do I! Do you want all of this paper? So do I!

Well, that is a way for you to get a sampling (one 6X6 piece) of all the DSP in the Occasions catalog. I take care of ordering and cutting into the 6×6 pieces. I ship it to you. You simply bask in the beauty of these luscious colors and patterns. It’s so easy. $22 will get you one paper share of these seven sets and the glassine paper AND priority shipping to your front door. Order by February 24 and I will start shipping out on February 28.

I know, it isn’t Tuesday anymore…and it may not be Wednesday either. But, you know, sometimes life just happens to us. That’s one of the awesome things about having good friends – you can relax and not be 100% all of the time – and that’s ok. Stampin’ Up! is like that in many ways. It sounds funny, but it’s true. Crafting is an activity that can provide so much enjoyment to yourself and others – and, there are no rules, so you don’t have to be “on” to enjoy it.
I know that when I don’t have the opportunity to create, I start to get a little twitchy — needing to have my hands in the ink and wiping off embossing powder. That is what is so great about the Birthday Bright Project Kit.
Like all of the SU kits, you have everything you need right there. all ready for your – except for your paper snips, and adhesives.
Check out this video that show how it all works together to make a set of birthday cards – there is even a group of shaker cards in the kit!! Get the Birthday Bright Stampset and a package of adhesive and you have just earned yourself a treat from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. What a Deal!! I am getting this set along with a couple of other trinkets. It almost makes the winter bearable.
Let me know if you need any other information or help to order from my site (24/7). And as always, Happy Stamping!!!
It’s my birthday too…..ok, not really. But, we all have people we love that have birthdays – some even have them more than once a year. Join me as I work on my New Year’s resolution to #bringbirthdaysback. On February 9 I will host a Birthday Bright Party! For $35 you will get the supplies and use my tools to make 12 birthday cards and 12 gift tags. RSVP and payment are due by February 1. Email me at vporta @ swbell.net for an invoice.
Can’t make it this day? Buy your own kit and stamps for $50 and get a free mini-kit of eight additional greeting cards.
So, if you are reading this, you got the memo. I moved my blog from blogger to word press. I’m getting all grown up now, I guess you could say. Still tweaking this someto get the right look. Please be patient with me.
Good Morning! It is finally October and in Arkansas, it has finally cooled off and the humidity pods have moved on. There is nothing quite like the clear skies and crisp air on a fall morning. I think this is one of my favorite times of the year. It is amazing that the weather has such a powerful affect on our moods and everything else. With fall in the air and the preparations for winter on the horizon, it is time to start thinking about finishing (or in some cases, starting) all of those project you were going to make for the holidays.
My October Class Schedule is posted below to help you get in the mood. You will find four different dates that I am available to teach a Christmas Card Class. If none of those dates work for you, call, text, or email me – we can get something scheduled. Do you have a crafter on your Christmas list? I have some great ideas for gift items as well. Everything from a bundle of embellishments for stocking stuffers to a Big Shot to help with all of your embossing or die cutting needs. Give me a call, text, or an email. I will even offer to gift wrap for you. What a deal? Right??
Keep in mind, the October Specials – all month is the Buy 3, Get 1 Free DSP special. The current hostess code is G6PMDMWZ
Coming in November – my first On-Line Class. How does that work, you ask? Well, when I open the class, you can either order directly from my website a list of supplies you will need. Everything will be shipped directly to you. You will also receive a color pdf file of directions and tips & tricks to help you with your project. If you are local, you can order from the website or we can coordinate and have a single package shipped to me.
What a great time we had at our recent Holiday Escape Crafting Weekend Retreat. My upline’s upline (my grand-upline?) hosted a wonderful weekend at the 4H center in Little Rock. We were treated with goodies, make and takes, and prizes all weekend. We started with Halloween. Worked our way through the entire Holiday Catalog and ended with Christmas and a PJ Party. We were even able to sneak in a celebration of Kay and Elizabeth’s recent promotions to Gold and Silver. Yay girls! Good job!! Elizabeth even made sure Kay got a tiara for her accomplishments.
The PaperMadePrettier Team is a wonderful group of ladies that I am excited to claim as part of my own tribe. It seems that no matter what the topic or question, they are all so supportive. I love this team!!
Here are some snap shots of the weekend – I was having so much fun and making so many cards, I didn’t have time to take too many pictures.
Speaking of the holidays – if you missed my recent Pinterest Party, you missed a great time. Here are some pics of the cute cards and gift packaging we made. Call me to schedule your own party, or two.
