2024-2025 Annual Catalog & Latte Love Class To Go

Hello Everyone, 

I have been so busy, with the new annual catalog coming out in May and the Mini catalog retiring on the 30th.

I wanted to share a few things with you on the new catalog coming May 1, 2024.

  • There is a new layout as to how the stamps are displayed, bigger and they have samples.
  • They have added card sketches for you to use when creating (woo hoo), need I say more?
  • The index is going to be your best friend, not all products are displayed so you'll need to look them up in the index.
  • Some products will move to online exclusives there for they won't be displayed in the catalog. Check out the online exclusives on my website to see what has moved.
  • There will be price increases, there are increases on some of our basics. I have attached a list below.

You can request a 2024-2025 here: https://bit.ly/2425catalogrequest they will not ship until mid April.

You can see the price increase list that I made here: https://bit.ly/2024-2025Priceincrease 

Note: Punches are also increasing in price as well as the Cut & Emboss machine and plates for both machines. My suggestion is to stockup before the price increase. You can use my shopping links below.

Workshop Wednesday- Re-cap of OnStage 2024 and Leaf Collection Card

Hello Everyone, 

It's Workshop Wednesday and I have so much to share with you!

I'll be sharing all of the gifts I received In Houston Texas from OnStage. We had a fun filled 3 days. I was up from 6:00am and went to bed after midnight each day. I'm still catching up LOL. I also got my hands on the new annual catalog that will go live on May 1, 2024. I'll share more about the catalog tomorrow, so be sure and come back.

I received a Stamp Set called the Leaf Collection, which is a background stamp. I love the many ways you can use it. Today I did a watercolor card. So quick and easy!!

March to a Different Beat- We Create Blog Hop


Hello everyone!

Welcome to another, We Create Blog Hop.

This month's theme is March to a different beat. I chose to use the Bee My Valentine Bundle for a St. Patrick's day goodie box. This stamp set was designed for Valentines, but I'm Marching to a different beat by using it for St. Patricks Day. 

As most of you know I love to make treat packages. I found these adorable Bumble Bee Marshmallows at Walmart and they are individually wrapped too,  woo hoo.

Bee's like four leaf clovers too, right? 


This box is easy to create and the clear lid give's you a sneak peek at the adorable bee marshmallows!

I used a 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of Garden Green cardstock to create my box. 
I scored all four sides at 1".  Burnish all of the score lines. I cut up the score lines on the long sides. I glued each of the tabs to the inside of the box. This created my box bottom.
used a 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of Window Sheet and scored all four sides at 1".  I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool because you have to go over the score lines several times on the Window Sheet. This time I cut off all four of the tabs, I burnished the score lines and added the lid to the inside of the box bottom.
I tied some Garden Green Ribbon around the box and finished with a bow at the top.
I die cut the third to the largest scalloped circle from the Thoughtful Expressions dies out of Basic White cardstock. I die cut four hearts in Garden Green cardstock using the Give it a Whirl dies.
I stamped the stem in garden Green ink on the scalloped circle. I glued the hearts to the stem to make it look like a four leaf clover. I stamped "Love You" in Sweet Sorbet ink. Using the Bee Builder Punch, I punched out the bee body in Basic White cardstock. (I like to punch my pieces first then stamp). I stamped the bee's body in Daffodil Delight ink, then the stripes and face in Memento Black ink. I punched the two hearts out in Vellum, stamped them in Black Stazon ink. I adhered all of the pieces together using Liquid Glue. I added the bee to the scalloped circle using Dimensionals. I punched a hole at the top of the circle and used Sweet Sorbet Baker's Twine to tie the scalloped circle to the Garden Green bow. I added a Gold Blooming Pearl to the center of the clover.

What do you think? Will you be making this box? Please let me know in the comments.
