Occasions Mini Set - Soft Summer

Today's featured Occasions mini set is Soft Summer (#113802). These are two cards that I've made with this set, and I've posted them before. I used 2 different designer series papers (DSP) making these two cards, too. I used Tangerine Tango Patterns DSP on the card on the left, and Bella Rose DSP on the card on the right.

Don't forget that you can buy 3 packs of designer series paper (pp. 158-161 in the big catty and p. 9 in the mini) and get one pack free. You can also do the same with the 12" x 12" textured card stock packs in the big catty (pp. 153-155). You can order 4 packs of DSP, 4 packs of textured card stock, or a combination of the two. There is no limit! You need to hurry though. This offer ends this Sunday, May 31!


This set is on p. 3 of the Occasions mini. It is a set of 6 stamps for only $23.95. It's a two-step stamp set. If you would like this set, it's available until June 30th.

Occasions Mini Set - Wagon Full of Fun

Here are some very cute cards made with Wagon Full of Fun set (#113262). This set makes great Spring & Easter projects. There are so many things you can put in the wagon, too! The card on the left was made by my friend & fellow demo, Shirley Brown, and the one on the right was made by Jen R.


These cards aren't your average cards. Shirley's (on the left) is a hinged card, and Jen's is a pocket card. When you open the top of Shirley's card, you find a duck hiding inside the wagon. You also find a duck in the pocket card, too. You can see this in the picture below.


This set is on p. 13 in the Occasions mini. It is a set of 10 stamps for only $34.95. If you would like to order this adorable set, you need to ORDER ONLINE by June 30th, or CONTACT ME by June 28th.

Occasions Mini - Walk in the Park DSP

Today, instead of featuring a stamp set from the mini, I'm featuring the designer paper in it, Walk in the Park (#115123). I made this scrapbook page for a workshop I'm doing today. I used my Circle Scissors Plus (p. 188, #112530) to cut out the circle from the DSP. I also got to use my newest Big Shot Dies, Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz die (p. 196, #114520) It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but the big yellow daisy's center is a Baja Breeze Corduroy Button (p. 6, #114345) from the mini.

This designer paper is on p. 9 in the Occasions mini. There are 6 different double-sided papers, 2 of each one. So, you get twelve, 12" x 12" double-sided designer paper for only $9.95. This paper is great for cards as well.

DON'T FORGET! If you order 3 packs of designer paper or 12" x 12" textured card stock by March 31, you get a 4th pack free! The other designer papers are on pp. 158-161 in the big catty.

Occasions Mini Set - Scene in a Garden

Today's featured set is Scene in a Garden (#113246). I don't know about you, but this Occasions mini has so many wonderful stamp sets. I really had a hard time not buying them all! This set is really cute. I love how you can put different things on the bench that comes with this set. The cards below show using two of the images without the bench. Both cards were made by Cheryl Liston. It's hard to tell, but the boots on the right card have Crystal Effects used on them. It really makes them look like shiny rubber boots! Great job, Cheryl!

There are so many things that can be done with this set. The possibilities are endless! This set is on page 7 of the Occasions mini, and is a set of 7 for only $21.95. Like I've said before, you can only purchase these sets until June 30th. You can get this set by ORDERING ONLINE or CONTACTING ME.

Occasions Mini Set - Sense of Time

Aren't these cards gorgeous? Both of these cards were made by Peggy Lucas using the Sense of Time (#113804) set. If you ever go to Splitcoaststampers, her SCS name is PeggyL. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the clock on the card on the right is heat embossed with Night of Navy Craft ink and Clear emboss powder.

As you can see, this set makes great cards, but it makes great scrapbook pages, too. It's great for any kind of projects you want to make, but really great for masculine & vintage-type projects.

Featuring Occasions Mini Stamp Sets

It's hard to believe, but we're already past the halfway point of the Occasions Mini sales period! I've been in a couple Occasions Mini swaps, and I've decided to share some of the great cards I received through these swaps. I'll feature a stamp set a day for the next week or two. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

Today, I'm featuring the stamp set, And Many Mower (#113724, set of 8, $27.95). The card on the left was made by Diana Eichfeld, and the card on the right was made by Shelley Hopps.

Father's Day is just around the corner, and this set is great for making that perfect Father's Day card you want to make. It also makes great birthday cards for the men in your life. Below, you'll see all of the stamps that are included in this set.

If you like this stamps set, you have until June 30th to purchase it. There are only a very few stamp sets that will make it in the upcoming catalog in July. The vast majority will NOT make it.

Digital Swap

I'm sorry that I didn't post yesterday. I had planned on putting more scrapbook pages up yesterday, but my son came home with a ton of math homework that he needed help with. I had to give myself a refresher course on probabilities and other 7th grade Algebra stuff. I think he got to where he understood it. I'm just hoping he still remembers how to do it for the test.

I don't have a picture taken of the scrapbook pages yet, but will this afternoon. While you're waiting, I'm posting a card that I received in the last digital swap I was in. This beautiful card was made by Theresa Hill. She used the Great Friend set (p. 6) from the Occasions Mini. I love this set, and have been trying not to buy it, but I keep seeing such beautiful cards made with this set. I may cave yet! I also loved how she used the SU! Backgrounds Texturz plate on the Basic Gray card stock. Beautiful!

Mother's Day Card

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday! I meant to post this on Mother's Day, but the weekend was soooo busy! I really could have used one more day this weekend!
