Gift Card Gift Bag feat. Beautiful Bauble Bundle

By Wendy | November 21, 2018 | 0 Comments

Today’s project was created out of necessity. One of the things I need the most during the holidays is gift card holders. Giving a gift card can seem a little impersonal.  However, if you create a super cute bag with love, then you have completely transformed the impersonal gift card, to a loving gift. If you missed it earlier this week, I featured it on my Facebook live event.  Click HERE to watch that video. TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS: + Cut card stock piece at 3 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ + Score on the long side at 1/2″, 1 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ + Turn card stock 90 degrees and score at 1″ + Cut on small score lines that create the bottom of the bag.  Just cut up to the 1″ score line. + Cut detailed bauble from the Silver Glimmer card stock Need a better idea of […]

By Wendy | November 14, 2018 | 3 Comments

I have been missing watercoloring.  So today I thought I would try my hand at a little bit of watercolor. I kept it quick, simple and messy.  Which frankly isn’t easy for me.  The messy part I mean. TIPS & INSTRUCTIONS: + Squeeze an ink pad together while it’s closed in order to put ink in the lid of the ink pad.  When you open it the ink can be used for watercoloring. + Use water to cover the area you want to drop ink into.  This will allow the ink to bloom on the page.  Creating beautiful watercoloring. + Don’t stress about coloring perfect.  Let the ink move outside the lines.   Wendy’s Rewards Program When you place orders with me I love to reward you.  Here are the things you can expect when you place an order with me: + FREE Stampin’ Anonymous tutorial bundle with 3 exclusive […]

Hello my friends! I am excited to share my cute project with you today.  I am in Orlando right now and getting to see so many of my wonderful team members.

A Special Invitation

By Wendy | November 7, 2018 | 0 Comments

On my Stampin’ UP! team I am blessed to have a few ladies who have achieved the title of Silver Elite. This simply means they are doing what I am doing.  They are pursuing their passion as a business.  I have watched each of them work hard, laugh, cry, be happy, be frustrated at times, and most of all I have watched them grow. All of my Silver Elite leaders are amazing women.  Each of them giving something fantastic and unique to our team that I truly have found to be motivating and inspiring. These women are my tribe.  They help me do my job better and frankly, they make me look like an awesome leader.  The truth is they just support me and encourage me as much I do for them. I could not think of a better way to celebrate who they are than having a nice dinner […]
