Greetings All!

Hope everyone is having a fun filled, cool (ha!) summer!  Ours has been unbelievable!  So much fun with family and friends!  But, the months just keep going by in the blink of an eye!  I can't believe it is going to be August on Monday!  Yikes.  Back to work on blogging, creating and having get togethers!  The Holiday season will soon be here!

Today, I wanted to share with you my examples of the Limited Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set and the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlit Dies.  These two items will only be available to you August 2-August 31 or while supplies last.  This comes as a bundle (stamp set and thinlits) for $52.00 and it is gorgeous!  It is also available separately for those who haven't invested in the Big Shot yet (or another die cutting machine).  And why haven't you?  The stamp set alone is $27.00 and the Thinlits will run you $31.00.  You obviously save on the bundle, but I know many who are just getting into card making don't want to invest in a piece of equipment unless you plan to use it many times.  Believe me, you will though! 

Here are the three that I made today~

My inspiration here was from Dena Rekow of The Creativity Cave.  Her video was so fun to watch and very easy to follow.  Thoughtful branches sample

I found some note cards that had the hydrangea in blue/purple on them, so that is where my inspiration came from for this next card.  I will avoid using the "grass" stamp included unless it is on a plain background.  I feel it just looked messy.  The background paper is the retired "Typeset Specialty" DSP.

This one is by far my favorite.  I had fun working with the dazzling diamonds glitter paper and silver embossing powder (#109131 – forgot to add it to the supply list below).  Again, the white background paper is from the retired "Irresistibly Yours" the leaf pattern.  It is hard to see in the photo.  The sentiment is also from a Sale-A-Bration Stamp set "Simply Wonderful".

So, do you want this stamp and die bundle yet?  Remember it will be only available in August 2-31!  Put on your calendars to order it on Monday – just go to my Shop Now button and order away (bundle # 144328, stamp set #143539, and thinlits set #143538).  I promise you won't be disappointed!  There are so many possibilities!  Take a look at Pinterest ~ there are many beautiful examples of all the stamps and thinlits in the set ~ it is mind boggling!

HOLIDAY CATALOG!  It is coming soon!  If you are one of my customers, you have been put on our mailing list and will automatically get one mailed to you from Stampin' Up!  If you aren't, as soon as I get them in my hot little hands, I will send you one.  Email me at and put in the subject line "Holiday Catalog".  Of course let me know who you are and your address :-)  I got a sneak peek and woo hoo does it have some absolutely fabby things in it!  The catalog goes LIVE September 1st and is good until January 3rd, 2017 (whaatt?? 2017?? geez!)

August 28th is the Creating With Paper gathering and I will be showing off some samples of things from the HOLIDAY catalog for my local gals.  If you are interested in joining our group where ever you are, just follow my blog.  Someday I hope to make some videos here and try a Facebook Live class.  I will keep you updated on that new adventure.

If you wish to purchase anything from the new Annual Catalog that just came out in June, remember this:

Until we meet again (which I promise will be sooner than later now that summer is almost over 🙁 ) remember to live, love, laugh and make time for Creating With Paper!

Be kind to one another and make time for Creating With Paper.
