Another Keeper...Perfect Pines Framelits!

I'm looking back on cards that I've made in the past using items that are in the Clearance Rack right now. These clearance items are only available as long as they last, so don't put it off if you see something you like!

Today I'm looking at Perfect Pines Framelits Dies. These have been a staple in my craft room - for Christmas cards, but also throughout the year. Anything with a forest or woodland theme -- you will see a baby card below!

Perfect Pines Framelit Dies, #139665

You can make Christmas Tags for days!



Or mini 3"x3" cards


After Christmas thank you cards


 

With sparkle and shine


Or a traditional room scene with peek-through window


More tags


Notecard-sized cards



A baby card with a woodland theme


And a snowy scene with our new Be Merry DSP

There is lots of versatility with these dies, and I can't see them ever going out of style! Hit the shop now button and add them to your stash at an awesome price of $16.20!


Thanks for stopping by today! Until next time, Happy Stamping!

P. S. Wrigley is just as adorable as I was told! I'll probably have some cutie pictures to share with you before too long!

CLEARANCE! Let's go shopping!!!


Who doesn't love a good bargain?  Before I became a demonstrator, I did a lot of shopping from the Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack. I couldn't resist saving up to 60% on items that I wanted but hesitated to pay full price for.

There are some wonderful products on the list right now. They have retired, so demonstrators can't use them to teach classes anymore. But you can bet I still use them for my personal card making and projects!

I thought it would be fun to look back at some of the projects I have posted throughout this last year, using products that you can buy today at a discount...

Botanical Builder Framelit Dies #140625
Price: $33.00  $19.80


I used this set a ton! It was clearly one of my favorites. Here are a few more project samples I found in my archives ~














Another product that is on clearance is the Acorn Builder Punch. I had a lot of fun with this one ~ in fact I'm using it again for Fall projects. I think this is going to stay in my craft room forever... Or as Susan would say, "It's a keeper!"


Acorn Builder Punch #139681
Price: $18.00  $10.80





That's enough for one day! I'll be back tomorrow with some more ideas for you. If you would like to add these items to your collection, click the Shop Now button, and you won't be sorry! These deals are steals! Have fun shopping!

Anyone for Tic, Tac, Toe? (and a new fur baby)

It's a new Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I saw gold and bling in the middle row, and knew exactly what I wanted to make!


I bought these gorgeous gold striped bags and they were calling me for this challenge :-)  .... Did I over-do it? Can one have too much shiny?!! What do you think?


This blingy bag is home to a card that might serve as a gift card holder or simply a nice message to someone. It's roomy enough for a sweet treat as well.



I used a Striped Treat Bag, Gold Foil, Gold Glimmer Paper, Mini Treat Bag Thinlits (for the heart and the "for you"), Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit, Layering Ovals Framelits, Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine, Gold Metallic Thread, and Ribbon of Courage for the inside sentiment all from the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. The band of black and white checked DSP is a sneak peek of Merry Little Christmas DSP from the Holiday Catalog (available on Sept. 1).

The card is thick Whisper White and is cut a little bigger than a normal card. I cut it at 4-1/2" x 6-3/4" to fit the bag.

When this post is published, I'll be on my way to visit my grandson in the state of Washington! He has a new dog! He has wanted a dog for as long as I can remember. Our Amos satisfied him while they lived here, but once they moved north he has been craving his own. Enter Wrigley ~



He is the cutest 3-year-old Corgi/Border Collie mix! They adopted him from a local shelter. I can't wait to meet him. He is already attached and very protective of his owner. He jumped between him and another dog to "save" his master the other day. Good dog! 

Have a great week, my friends! I'll be checking in with you from Washington. Before you click off, scroll down to see some great promotions and my product list after that. You can click on any picture to get over to my online store.
