Christmastime is Here…But These Products (and Kit To Go) Will Be Gone!

Welcome to my 12 Days of Giveaways! This is so  much fun! I feel like Oprah…”You’re a winner! You’re a winner! You’re a Winner!” LOL (I wish I had her budget!!) Today is all about the Christmastime is Here Suite. I’m sad to say that Saturday is the last day to order products from the Christmastime is Here Suite. Christmastime is Here banner

I absolutely love the Designer Series Paper in this suite and have used it for many different projects. I used one of the dies in the set to cut out this flower from the DSP.

Stampin' Up! Basic Pattern Decorative Mask with Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper All Occasion card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card is one of my favorites! It’s simple, bold, and can be used for just about any occasion (birthday, sympathy, wedding, get well, thank you, thinking of you, Valentine’s Day, or Christmas)! Are you wondering where I got the gold polka dots? This is one of the cards that was included in my Basic Decorative Masks Kit To Go. I have a few extra kits still available.  If you would like to receive this kit (to make 4 different cards using each of the Basic Decorative Masks) with the tutorials, email me (with Decorative Mask Kit in the subject). Click HERE for more details.

I didn’t purchase everything in the Christmastime is Here Suite; however, I did buy the DSP, Gold Glimmer Ribbon, Gold Enamel Dots, and the Dies. I decided not to purchase the stamp set because I already have a lot of Christmas stamps and knew I could use these products for many different occasions with other stamp sets! Take a look at this gorgeous DSP! (I’m actually on my third pack!) Trust me, the photo does not do it justice!

No Tricks, Just Treats!

Happy Halloween! I have several treats to share with you today! First, I have a winner from yesterday’s post where I asked you to leave a comment telling me what you would like to see under your tree this year.  I always enjoy reading everyone’s comments. The winner is…. Carmen! She said, “Anything that is a surprise”.  Well, Carmen, I have a surprise for you!  Email me ( your address and I will ship your gift to you!

Here’s a really special treat that I was the lucky recipient to receive. Liza Stucker made this Halloween sampler and I am in complete awe!  I had to display it in a place of honor as it just brings me smiles!

Created by Liza Stucker

Here’s a close up of each of her mini works of art.

Here’s the thing….I have never met Liza and I am so humbled by her generosity.  She follows my blog and reached out for some help getting some of the products she needed to put this all together.  I never expected to be one of the recipients of this awesome creation! She truly embodies the motto, “Share Handmade Kindness”!!! I say it all the time but it is worth repeating…don’t ever underestimate what you do when you create from your heart and share! The simple joy it brings is priceless!!!

Here’s a super treat for everyone (and a great gift idea for someone on your list)…

Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet and more…Blog Candy Winner!

Do you like making cards and 3D projects but don’t have everything you need?  Do you find you have limited time to craft and wish there was a way to make it quick & simple? Well, if you answered yes to either of these questions, my “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” to go is just what you need!

“Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $12 (plus shipping and handling)

Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the buffet table:

Email me ( with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. Orders need to be placed by November 1st so I can get kits shipped on or before Nov. 12th.

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed

I love to spoil my customers and they have been enjoying my card kits and 3D projects at classes and/or when they place an online order. I love to send out card kits and/or treats for orders placed with me. You can get a “thank you” card kit for FREE with an online purchase using the hostess code. (*See below for the current hostess code.)

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere. Great to get together and do with a friend!

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

Oh my goodness, thank you! I so enjoyed the last kit! Kept me occupied for a week! And this set is equally as beautiful! You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

I worked on your Card Buffet this afternoon. What a delightful way to

spend an afternoon! Your directions and photos really are EXCELLENT. I
think that part of the reason that you write such good instructions is
because you are programmed to teach little kids; it makes you really
good at spelling out every step. Well done!  ~M~

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M
