Gratitude for Days and Weekly Deals

gfd photos

Hi everyone!  These kits really flew under the radar for me but my customers have been creating some fun things with them so I thought I’d spotlight them.

The kit is called Gratitude for Days. You can use it as a countdown to Thanksgiving  recording your gratitude from day to day and hang them up as a reminder with these colorful cards and pockets. Kit includes 33 cards and 30 pockets, as well as stickers and binder clips.

Some are decorating them and sending to the family in advance so they can read them all on Thanksgiving day!

One customer even used them at a baby shower this month for writing advice to the new mom!  The pockets and notes are just so cute.

Gratitude For Days Simply Created Kit  # 135868  $21.95

Here’s the kit:

And here is a video from the Stampin’ Up home office:

Merry & Bright Holiday Supplement starts Today!

merry supplement

Apparently Stampin’ Up thought we needed MORE Holiday goodness so we have another tag-a-long supplement to shop from!

I hope you received one of these in the mail from me…if you didn’t hopefully it will be there this week!

Here is the digital version (it’s a little wonky as there is a fold out inside the hard copy)

Here are a few of the notable things inside and clicking on the pictures will take you to a description in my store:

stars many merry

This is a great set and coordinates with the Star Framelits!

It’s photopolymer so you can cut the stars in advance and still line them up.

15.95 for 16 stamps, # 138105

pl december wonder

This is a new Project Life stamp set, it’s photopolymer also, but is adorable for tags and cards if you aren’t memory keeping right now.  It coordinates with a few punches like the hexagon, 1″ and 1-1/4″ circles and the long banner framelit from the Project Life Cards & Labels collection.

$15.95 for 13 stamps, item # 136562

The other notable new product is the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit

mmkit

This kit is HUGE!

It makes 26 stars, some 3D,  in 6 sizes, from 2: to 15″.  All the words are laser cut and ready to go.

# 138104 25.95 for 26 stars

That’s it for today!  If you want any of the new goodies, get in touch with me or order online anytime!

Weekly Stampin’ Deals

Tuesdays are the day that SU comes out with select items on sale for just one week only.

Floral Frames are a good deal this week! And mustaches are still a hot trend, too….

wd oct 14

That mustache die is perfectly made for the nutcrackers in the Holiday catalog!

I have this set and haven’t played with it yet. Might need to do that this week! I think gifts of nuts, pistachios or something like that would be great for these guys..

Here is a swap I received at Founders from Sandy Hancock showing the cute Santa as a gift card.  She cut his mustache out with the framelit (that is on sale) and it adds a lot of dimension.  Here is the back of gift card:

Winter Card Kit 7 Ways

wwkit1

I opened up my Watercolor Winter card kit from the Holiday catalog this week and made a bunch of cards!

     wwkit dbws

Watercolor Winter Simply Created Kit #135869  20 cards/envelopes for $24.95

This is what the projects look like if you follow the directions:

wwkit finished

They are wonderful but the biggest complaint I hear is that they are time consuming and tedious with the paint brush watercoloring.

So I decided to throw out the directions, grab a brayer and go my own way!

It’s a long video for me, about 11 minutes but I show what’s in the kit and then the projects:

Here are a few of my own designs using the kit:

ww7kit

wwkit4

The 2 below are pretty close to the original kit instructions except I brayered instead of paint the color on:

ww4kit

ww3kit

The one below is not using the kit contents at all but using supplies I had on hand like the woodgrain embossing folder.

The Noel die comes from the Wonderful Wreath framelits. The snowflake is from the snowflake card die cuts.

Here is a video from Stampin’ Up with the original Kit instructions:
