Designer Tin of Cards

A great video about Stampin' UP's Designer Tin of Cards Project Kit which can be found on page 160 of the Stampin' UP! catalog.

This project kit includes 16 card bases and envelopes plus a printed tin box with lid, file tab dividers and printed die-cut images, die-cut Designer Series Paper, vellum sheets, white cardstock tags with gold foil print, washi tape, Baker's Twine, sequins, and gold paper clips.

This kit is designed to be used with the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp set on page 161 but you can be used alone using your own creativity.

Plus, when you are finished making the cards in the kit, you have the stamp set to continue making more cards.

All the supplies, for this kit can be found in my online store by just clicking the link to the products, below.

Garage Sale Success!!!

Wow, it never ceases to amaze me how much stuff one family can accumulate over the years!! We have had several garage sales in the past 10 years in an effort to get rid of things we have packed around for years or accumulated in the past 10 years that we find we no longer 'need'.

As we have gotten older, we have found that life is just simpler with less 'stuff'. Anyway, all of our work over the past few weeks paid off!!  We had a successful garage sale.

The day started out blustery! We couldn't even drag stuff out to the driveway because of the rain.   I guess the rain kept some people from even having their garage sale, so we were swamped for a few hours.  And, we had a steady stream of people throughout the day.  The day went FAST!!!

WHAT FUN!!!!  I always love the actual day of a garage sale because of all the people that you meet...and you learn what they collect, what they are searching for....what they are going to use something for that they just bought (that you didn't think and, just everyday chit chat.

By the end of the day, though, we were exhausted!  But, a good exhausted! :-)

One more garage sale next month, with a friend, in another city,....and hopefully, I'll sell more of my stamping supplies....(a lot of the other stuff that is left is going to be donated to a pet shelter thrift store).

Now, to get my Granddaughter's Wedding invitations finished by the end of June, plan a retreat for September AND, I am starting up classes again.

So stay tuned!!

Have a great day!!!

And, remember to Paws N Stamp!!

And, yet another garage sale...sigh AND a Good deal from SU for JUNE

Ok, have fun looking  I tried and tried to fix this photo to no avail.
Once again, we are having another garage sale.  Most of the stamps and rubber stamping supplies are from my demonstrator days with The Angel Company. I was with them for 11 years.  I have hung on for too long to all the stamps I just knew I would use again.  HELLO???  I haven't and especially not since becoming a SU demonstrator almost 3 years ago.

I keep asking myself, "Why do you keep doing this?"  Why?  Because each year, I get rid of more stamps and this year....I slashed the prices down to about .50 cents a CD case.  WAY, WAY, WAY less than their original cost.  They are all unmounted.  But, heck, the CD case has to be worth at least .10cents, right? LOL

I also am selling some SU sets that are retired and some other crafting supplies.

Then, there are the household things and a beautiful king size headboard and foot board.  I hate to get rid of it, but we just downsized to a queen bed.  I just want our garage back to park cars in.....imagine that!!!

And, since my wrist is doing so much better, and I am able to stamp once again, I am planning on starting up classes again, really soon!!!

Hopefully, I will start blogging more, too!  I just haven't had anything to share as I haven't stamped hardly at all in 6 months.

Wanted to let everyone know that through the month of June, if you have a workshop or spend $350 in one order, you qualify for an extra $35 dollars in hostess rewards!!  That is an AWESOME deal!!!  The offer ends June 30th at 10:50 pm MT.

Read about it here.  Scroll down where it says Extra Stamping Rewards.

Have a great day!!!
