Global Stamping Friends – Color Challenge

Posted on

Welcome to another month of creativity with the Global Stamping Friends.  You are at BFF Stampers with Jenn Charles in California, USA.  This month’s hop is a challenge featuring a Color Theme!

This Color Challenge was hard for me because I was in a springtime frame of mind and couldn’t wrap my mind around these colors.  Then I thought, they’d be beautiful with that Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Beautiful Peacock, but I don’t own that one yet..

So I really had to think on this one and this is what I came up with:

We have many, many birthdays to celebrate this month.  One of them is for a friend of ours who is turning 5!  He is going to love this card.

One of my favorite things to do is to make my background paper with stamps.  I do love our designer series paper but sometimes you need other themes and the best way to do that is to make it yourself.

Here’s a close up of the dino popped up using our dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed my card using the colors, Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, and Early Espresso.  Speaking of Espresso, I think I’ll go make a coffee card for my nieces birthday which is next week.  Stay tuned all month for some exciting birthday offers!

Next up on the hop is Amanda Farlinger.  I can’t wait to see what’s she’s made.  There’s a list below of all the participants if you’d like to hop around. Happy Hopping!

Your BFF,

Sale-A-Bration Kick Off Blog Hop

Posted on

Wow Wow Wow!  It’s finally here!  The 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are FINALLY here!!!  I’m so excited to be a part of this hop with these amazing, talented demonstrators.  We’ve got a fantastic assortment of creativity to share with you.  I’m praying that after you finish hopping through, you will be just as excited as I am about all the wonderfully exclusive things YOU can earn for FREE with a $50 order starting tomorrow!

I’ve got a couple Sale-A-Bration items myself that I was able to get early as a perk of being a demonstrator.  My most favoritest (is that even a word?) of them all is a stamp set called Epic Celebrations.  For those of you that don’t know, I have two teenage daughters in my home.  They always need a card and all of mine are either too flowery or too plain.  Every once in a while they will really like a card.  This new stamp set is perfect for teenage b-day cards.  Or just the occasional, hey, I have to give you a card because my mom said, card. It’s cool and that makes me cool.  HA!

Introducing Epic Celebrations:

Take note of the beautiful colors of that scrapbook paper behind the stamp set.  That is also something you can earn for FREE in the Sale-A-Bration brochure, it’s called the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series paper.

Here’s what I’ve come up with using these 2 products together.

This turquoise glimmer paper is from the Occasions Catalog.  It matches perfectly with Bermuda Bay colored designer series paper.  I colored the converse shoes with the Pool Party Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.  I love these markers!

I hope you fall in love with this stamp set like I did.  Hop along and check out all the fun ideas using the Sale-A-Bration items. Scroll to the bottom for upcoming classes and ways to earn even MORE FREE stuff!

Need a Catalog?  If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love to send you a catalog and get you hooked on papercrafting!  Contact me and I’ll send you out the catalog with a surprise!

The Occasions Catalog goes live tomorrow!  A couple options to earn more FREE stuff!
***Host a party with $250 in sales and you can receive at least $50 in FREE product of your choice!

***Collect orders (or put in your own order) of $100 and join me in a Catalog Hostess Party.  I need 10 friends to host a $1,000 party and you will all receive a share of the Hostess Benefits.

***Want it all?  Did you know that you can sign up to be on Team BFF and you will receive a discount of 20% on everything you order and get the perks of being first to see everything and first to order it? Starting tomorrow, you can get $125 worth of product for $99 with FREE Shipping AND you will also receive 2 FREE stamp sets of your choice!

We Are Bringing Birthdays Back!

Posted on

Hi BFFs,

Bringing birthdays back? Yes, we are! Well what exactly does that mean you ask?  #imbringingbirthdaysback is a new movement that originated with Shannon West a Stampin Up! Training Manager.  It’s simply a movement to bring back hand written notes and cards being sent and received via mail!  No, not email, Facebook, or text message; good, old fashioned mail.  You know that box you go to and usually just take out envelopes that contain bills, advertisements for credit cards and other miscellaneous junk mail – it’s called a mail box!  In the “olden days” that mailbox used to be filled with handwritten notes, birthday cards, invitations, Christmas cards and beautiful cards that could bring a little brightness to your day.  Well Jenn and I thought this was such a great idea that we wanted to be part of the movement!

We are so excited that Jenn has been making birthday cards every day!  We would love to send YOU a card! Email us your name, address and birthday and we WILL send you a birthday card on your special day! You can email us at

Here is a great “guy card” that Jenn made yesterday!  You know ladies, boys have birthdays too!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Your BFFs

Jenn & Lisa

Made with SU Guy Greetings

Mojo Monday 430 – Have a Cuppa

Posted on

Back again to showcase another wonderful new stamp set from the Occasions Catalog today.  I have to admit that when I saw this set, it was definitely not one I thought I would like at all because I am not a tea person…I’m a coffee person.  But the more I worked with this set, the more I loved it!  There are actually a lot of tea drinkers in my circle of people that I could give cards too.  I wouldn’t be making cards for myself anyway!  I’m so selfish like that…lol.

So I used this set to make my Mojo Monday card yesterday.

Mojo Monday A Nice Cuppa

Anyway, here it is, A Nice Cuppa stamp set and the coordinating products.

Here’s a couple more fun samples:

I hope you have as much fun as I’ve been having with them!
