Is tomorrow REALLY the last day of November??! Are you kidding me?! Well, I guess it is, so if you want to take advantage of the Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza before it ends Wednesday Nov. 30th, be sure to check it out!! Don't delay! You do NOT have to place your own order online, you can call or email me to do it for you….but you do have to do it before the end of the day November 30th!
Note: The price you see at first on a product is not the sale price…click on the product itself and you will then see the sale price in red ink. If you want one of the bundles, you have to put in the bundle item # to get the sale price so double-check that.
Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope you get some good deals!!
Both the Red (#121790) and the Silver Glimmer Paper (#124005) by Stampin' Up! are so beautiful to use! A person might even want to hoard this paper, but really, isn't it better to use and let others enjoy it also??! The glimmer and shimmer of the paper, especially the silver, is so beautiful in person one could just look at the whole sheet all day playing with it in the light!
Here is a very simple, easy, but elegant card using just a little bit of the Glimmer Paper. I love the tone on tone layers, and I used my Simply Scored Tool (#122334) to make the borders on the Whisper White top layer. Love the Mini Jingle Bells (#124116) and the Cherry Cobbler/White Baker's Twine! (#123125). The greeting is from the stamp set Grateful Greetings (#116511).

If you look through the catalog as if you were choosing a gift for someone, you might find that there are quite a few suitable items even for the non-stamper….or the crafter!
Stampin' Up! has already started their Online Extravaganza through November 30. But to have a little Black Friday and Cyber Monday fun, I'm offering a special tutorial as a treat for you when you place an order of $25 or more (before shipping and tax). It's an easy mini album to make, perfect for a few Christmas photos. This offer is good now, Black Friday through Cyber Monday (Nov. 28).

Just email me at Karen@Karenstamps.com.
After all the turkey is eaten and the last of the leftovers are put away and the kitchen cleaned up, why not make some scrapbook pages of your Thanksgiving Day? It only takes minutes if you do it in My Digital Studio. If you prefer, make them the traditional way with card stock and embellishments. It will be something to treasure for years to come. Maybe your guests will want to help or make their own little album!
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed Thankgiving!
As you are looking through lots of old family recipes as you prepare for Thanksgiving dinner, you might consider doing something creative with those real special ones. A friend asked me to do something with this favorite recipe of her mother's. I love how it turned out and I think she did, too.
She had already made copies of the recipe, so I scanned it again and printed on Very Vanilla card stock. I did a little stamping in the corners using markers on the stamp, which, as it turned out, gave it that lighter, more vintage look. The edges are sponged with Soft Suede very lightly.
For the paper flower and the bottom border I used the retired Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper. It looked perfect for this project.
As I have said before, if you ever think your handwriting is not good enough for journaling or scrapbooking or writing notes in cards, just take a look at this handwritten recipe and realize how it brings the person to life for the people who knew her. Get off the computer and pick up a pen once in awhile! Your handwriting will be a real treasure to someone in later years, I guarantee it.
With an assortment of stamping supplies you can make more than cards or scrapbook pages. Explore your creativity and see what wonderful projects you can come up with!

Raining Flowers is one of the several free stamp sets we received in our bags at the Stampin' Up! Convention this past summer. While doing some other stamping project, I learned how to make a smaller panel embossed with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Die #121809 and decided to use it on this card. I like the white on white look of layers, or in this case, Very Vanilla layered on top of Very Vanilla. The frame is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and sponged just the tiniest bit with some Pear Pizzazz ink. I just stamped some Raining Flowers in the middle, cut out and popped up the Rose Red flower and the So Saffron flower. The flowers are actually stamped and then punched with a smaller punch that doesn't really match the shape of the stamp, but it looks fine. It was fun to experiment with something new!

Most of us just can't get enough of this Spice Cake Designer Series Paper! It is so versatile it can be used on any number of types of cards. This one is a birthday card for a friend with a fall birthday. This is another idea I got from our Stampin' Up! demonstrator website, Stampin' Connection, where other demonstrators post samples, ask questions, and post helpful tips and information. The card I got the idea from was made by Sherianne. I loved how it incorporated the Spice Cake fabric, the Spice Cake paper, and the very large Spice Cake Designer Buttons! I used the stamp set Gently Falling to stamp the leaves and then adhered a stamped greeting over the background using Bring On the Cake. The Scallop Square is easy….a die cut for the Big Shot, and then I poked the little holes with my Paper Piercing Tool.
If you need any of these wonderful stamping supplies, you can order them online HERE.
