Let's Taco 'Bout It

Wow. It's been quite some time since I've posted! Sorry 'bout that!

I love this taco truck so much! It's one of the freebie stamp sets you can receive with any $60 purchase (before tax) until the end of Sale-A-Bration (March 31).

I made the taco patterned paper by stamping the taco shells over and over (and then just gave them a touch of colour with an Aqua Painter).

Super quick and easy, and enough to make you giggle!

Celebrate World Card Making Day Today!

Do you remember the last time you received a card in the mail? In a sea of junk mail and bills, a card is a simple thing that really stands out to the person who receives it. 

Sending a card is a small gesture that shows just how much you care about that special someone in your life. Today is World Card Making Day! Celebrate by making and sending a handmade card to someone who could use a little recognition, love, or just a boost (which is anyone, really!). 

In celebration of World Card Making Day, from October 1-5, save up to 25% on cardmaking essentials that can be used to share your love all year long! The products below are being discounted.

Stampin' Up! Canada is celebrating by giving away 3 stamp sets! Get together with friends today and then post a picture in the comments section on this Facebook post and they'll randomly select 3 people to receive a stamp set from the annual catalogue! You’ve got until midnight (mountain time) Saturday, October 1st. Happy World Card Making Day!

Going, Going, Gone!

It's here! The Retiring List! The most popular items (aka quickest to sell out) are any of the 2014-2016 In Color products (refill inks/markers/paper). If you need any of those to complete projects, don't wait! If there were any stamps you were holding off on getting and they're on this list, don't wait any longer! 

*Due to high demand for retiring stamps, retiring stamps will be produced until May 22 (not accessories, which are only while supplies last).

Have you seen/heard about the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement?  Well, it reminds me of this post from last August where I pledged to start sending more cards in the mail.
#imbringingbirthdaysbackAnd so, I'm joining in. I mean, who doesn't want to receive happy mail - and especially when it's for your birthday!

Stampin' Up! trainer Shannon West started this movement because she noticed that not only was Facebook taking over birthday cards, but it was also contributing to fewer Christmas cards being mailed. 

She created a hashtag stamp for the cards (and/or envelopes) before you mail them. They sold out of the initial run in under 5 hours!. These stamps are now back in stock, and you can bet I'll be ordering one! 

So let's get stamping and and mailing out those cards! They don't have to be complicated cards - if you need a quick and easy way to get started, I'd recommend the Tin of Cards; but make sure that you send them out, and don't hoard the completed cards you make! If you want a hand stamped birthday card from me this year, please comment with your birthdate and I’ll add you to my list (you may need to also email me your address). If your birthday has passed, add it anyway and I’ll get a belated card to you.
