ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA … and Thanks So Much ...

Happy Sunday!

Sigh.  Woke up at 4:30 am … again.  WTH???  Have a REALLY reached the age where I only *need* 6 hours of sleep?  Will I start getting up at 3:00 - 4:00 am every day then taking a nap every afternoon?  Surely not YET???!!!  Let's blame that sucky 10 year span of peri menopause, shall we??  Ugh.  Not digging this new chapter, I've GOTTA say!

Well … on the bright side I get to enjoy a few hours of peace, quiet and coffee to to myself every morning (although I'm pretty sure I forgot to throw away yesterday's coffee grounds and made a cup THINKING I used fresh 'cause my coffee this morning tasted like watered down dish water.  Bleh!).  I'll be making a FRESH cup right away … before my friends show up for my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.  Mmmmm coffee, fresh cinnamon buns, stamping and laughing with friends … followed by the Western Final Football Game and a roast beef dinner.  Does it GET any better????  I think NOT!

Oh!  Before I forget - the Stampin' Up! ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA starts tomorrow!!!

It is only for one week, there are door crasher specials on the first and last days and supplies are "only while supplies last" (yes, they do ear-mark just a certain number of products on offer so they can (and do!) sell out!

I will be sending out an email with all the details, I will also post them here (tomorrow) and/or on my business Facebook Page "Tamara's Paper Trail" (make sure you "Like" and "Get notifications" to get all the latest info!!)

You have a few ways you can order.  You can access my 24/7 online store here, you can e-mail me your order or you can call me (- email/phone will save you shipping if your order is less than $100.)  I will be placing an order Monday night at 7:30 SHARP but just know that the items you want MAY BE GONE!  The BEST bet is to order yourself online early in the morning.  That should ensure you get what you want.  If the item(s) is no longer available the system will tell you so immediately.  Just know that shipping is 10% of the order total or $9.95, whichever is more … so it may save you shipping if you email/call me … but, again, your items may be gone by then.

If you DO place an online order know that you earn hostess dollars at the checkout if your order is $200 or more.  If it is UNDER $200 then, if you use HOSTESS CODE BPNMD26A at the checkout then you will be entered into my draw for free product (don't know what it is yet … depends on what I scoop up tomorrow!).  If you have any questions regarding this give me a call!

Right!  On to a project!

I just realized .. this is the last "draft" post of projects I have … I best get creating again!!

Sorry … but this project is one of my LEAST favourites in quite a long while (hence it being designed months and months ago but not posted until it was the last one at the bottom of the barrel!)  Prepare to be underwhelmed ….
*Meh.  Thptptptptptp.  Stinky.  Essentially just stamped the stamp in Smoky Slate but before doing so inked the Thanks So Much with my Island Indigo marker.  Tied some ribbon, added some rhinestones. *Meh.

I SO wanted this card to work.  I played with it for EVER.  I thought the stamp (A World of Thanks) was a must-have for a quick and easy card.  Alas … an hour later this is all I had.  I LOVED the sample in the catalogue …
It looks like :they" stamped the image in versa mark, sprinkled it with heat and stick powder, heat set it, sprinkled it with dazzling diamonds, heat set it again and added the flower detail.  Mine?  *Meh.  I was trying to design it for a class but wanted something quicker.  Hmmm.  Now that I see the catalogue card again perhaps I'll try it again … their way.  I haven't used heat and stick powder in a class in a looooooong time.  Perhaps I should stop trying to reinvent the wheel and just CASE the darn card that I liked in the first place!  Ok!  I'll DO IT!  Stay tuned for that in the coming weeks!

Right - that decent-cup-o-Joe is calling me.  Must run.  Pop in again soon and have a super stampy Sunday!
