St. Patrick’s Day Thank You!

Happy St. Patty’s Day!  We are going for the green today with this card and lots of layers do the trick!

The two greens used here are the fabulous Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy ~ wow do they go well together!  Now one thing to know about Mint Macaron…no, actually two things!!  (1) It’s the prettiest mint green you’ve ever seen and, (2) it’s only available through May 31st, or while supplies last!  Really, if you love this color like I do, get your paper and ink now before they are gone!

The background behind the sentiment was created with a sweet little stamp from the Sale-a-Bration set called Make a Medallion.  I stamped it all over the piece of Whisper White using Mint Macaron ink.  I really like the way it turned out 🙂

The sentiment is another Sale-a-Bration set called So Very Much.  It’s a beautiful large font and yet the lines are thin.  It really makes a statement -and a quick card!


Learn HERE how you can get these fun embellishments FREE exclusively from me with a qualifying order in March!

Two Reasons I Love Stamping!

Pals Small Group

There are many reasons I love stamping 🙂  But today I want to talk to you about two reasons!  I bet you can guess the first reason...yes, it’s FRIENDS!  I’ve met so many wonderful people and they have become like a family.  A few weeks ago I had a wonderful opportunity to gather with some great stampers for a whole weekend!  It was fabulous!  The photo above is of some of my Pals.  Pals are part of Mary Fish’s Stampin’ Pretty Pals which is a large group of stampers all over the country.  We call Mary our fearless leader!!

Table of Pals

I can’t even tell you how much fun we had!  We ate, we talked, we learned from fabulous demonstrators, and just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!  Below is a picture of our entire group of Pals.

Pals on Stairs 2

Do you see why I love stamping?  Who can resist such a wonderful group of friends?  And guess what?  YOU can join this group!  Yes, it’s true!  And, it’s easy!  Just purchase the “Ultimate Bundle” from Stampin’ Up!, designate me as your demonstrator, and you automatically become a Pal!  You can come all of the Pals events and enjoy this great group of friends!  If you want to know more, just CLICK HERE!  Or email me if you want more details.  I’d sure love to have you as part of our group!

The second reason I love Stampin’ Up! is the great PRODUCTS!  They are the best around!  And right now we have the biggest sale of the year going on, Sale-a-Bration!  And today we have three (3) new FREE items that just became available.  Like I said, PRODUCTS!!  How do you get these FREE items?  Place an order of $50 or more and get one item FREE, it’s that easy!  CLICK ON THE PHOTO BELOW TO LEARN MORE!

What’s Going On at Pretty Paper Cards?

Elie Feb 2015

Today is a little update on what’s going on here at Pretty Paper Cards.  So of course you have to see a new photo of my little Elie!  We got some new clip-on hair bows ~ darling, right?  She’s such a sweet little girl.  But I have to admit she looks quite serious in this photo 🙂

Moving Boxes

And…. we’re moving!  Yes, packing up the craft room and Elie and moving.  Not too far, just a short distance away.  But you know how it goes, boxes all over, lots of details to take care of 🙂

All that to say, my posting might be a bit sporadic for the next few weeks.  I don’t have the time I usually do to create, and starting in a day or two all my craft supplies will have to be packed up for the move.

In the meantime, I’ll try to keep you up with what’s going on, like the Weekly Deals!!  Here are this week’s deals and they center around pretty packaging.  Take advantage of these deals while you can.  Just click on the box below to go straight to my store.  And, don’t forget about Sale-a-Bration:  for every $50 order, you choose one Sale-a-Bration item FREE!
