It's Here!! The Holiday Extravaganza Sale!!

OMG Stampin Up said there would be some amazing deals and they were right- it's AMAZING!!!

You can get up to 50% off items!!!! They are all bundles and luckily they give page references in the catalogue which is very handy. This is going on from today until Monday but only until supplies last! You can either order through online ordering (on my demonstrator website linked below) or place an order through me

I am also going to sweeten the pot for anyone who is interested- tis the season! Anyone who orders any of these bundles between now and Monday will be placed in a draw for a free stamp set!

I know that this is the time of year where it is hard to justify spending on yourself. You can email this flyer to a loved one as a wish list. If they order anything I will enter your name into the wish list draw as well. That means two ballots for you- one for the bundles stamp set and one for the wish list stamp set!!

If you have any questions please let me know- happy shopping!

PS- the curly label punch bundles and star struck bundles are just screaming my name!! I also don't know if I'll be able to resist the All in the Family bundle- 50% off is just too good a deal to pass up!!

Please click on this link o go straight to my demonstrator page and see the bundles:

Gift Tag Kit

Here it is everyone- my first card kit!!!! For $15 you will get all the pieces that you need to make 30 fantastic gift tags. This kit will include:

- 30 stamped and punched out images using deer friends
- 30 circle and scallop punch outs in Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip
- 1 role of 1/4" grosgrain Chocolate Chip ribbon- enough for the tags and future projects

The only products that you will need are adhesive and a hole or slit punch.

The images will be stamped and punched out for you because the Deer Friends set is a Hostess set and unavailable for purchase. You could earn this set through hostess benefits- if you are interested in having a fun night with your friends and potentially earn fantastic Stampin Up products please let me know.

If you are interested please call or email me. If you do not live in the GTA please add $2 to the cost for shipping.

This Christmas it really is all about Deer Friends!

160- Pacific Eastern Blooms Card

The layout for this card was a challenge on splitcoast. It was also a perfect excuse for me to use my new Eastern blooms set. I wanted to make a nice simple blank card for one of my aunts in her favorite colour. In retrospect it needs a bit more of a wow factor- maybe a ribbon- but it's still nice

Ink: Pacific Point

Paper: Pacific Point, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White

159- Upsy Daisy Birthday Card

I absolutely love this stamp set- it is so versatile. As soon as I saw this card on splitcoast I knew I had to case it because it was just so simple and perfect. I also love that I can change the sentiment with the others in the set

158- Priceless Card

I actually made this card at the last stamp club but haven't posted it yet. I just love the end result- combining different backgrounds on one card just gives great results. Geting to use both a wheel and a background stamp on one card just brings me joy. It really is about the simple things! I also like the colour combination- I have used quite a bit of vanilla, chocolate and bashful blue but I love using the Certainly Celery instead- will definitely be doing this in the future!!


Stamp Sets: Priceless, Swirly wheel, En Francais Background

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery

Paper: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla

Accessories: Scalloped edge punch, Very Vanilla 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, ticket corner punch
