Episode 136: Scrapbook Saturday! using Color Theory Suite

Hello my crafty peeps!

It's Scrapbook Saturday! The theme this week has been all about the Color Theory Suite. Since there's so many seasonal elements it's perfect for adding to scrapbook layouts. Today I'm scrapping an old family tradition that I had with my ex-husband and pickin'! I grew up in Florida so you can imagine there's not much in the way of apple orchards. It was such a novelty for me to go out in the crisp autumn air and pick my own apples. In the years since the air hasn't always been crisps, some years it was downright balmy! But it's always been a fun thing to do. And if you've never gone apple pickin' I highly recommend you do it at least once in your life. The apples taste so much better when you do.

New products will be available June 1st

Episode 135: Seasonal Layers Thinlits with bonus project

Hello my crafty peeps!

There are many new items in the new Annual Catalog. It's exciting to have new things to play with. My creative juices are flowing! I'm looking forward to June and July when I hope to be able to get everything on my wishlist. That's the goal anyway. We'll see how my wallet feels about it. Lol.

The Color Theory Suite is a fun and versatile set of products that will take you through an entire year of seasons. The Colorful Seasons stamp set and Seasonal Layers thinlits can be purchased individually or you can save 10% by purchasing both in a bundle. It's sometimes hard to envision what the dies will look like once they are cut and how they coordinate with the stamp set. Let me help make that easier for you. I've filmed a video showing all the cut pieces and what stamps they will coordinate with. I've added photos of all the pieces and stamped images to this post as well. 

I also filmed a quick tutorial using some of the products from the Suite. I'm making bookmarks to include with the new Annual Catalogs I'm sending out to my customers. Want to jump on the bandwagon and get your own copy of the catalog? Click on the Catalog request tab in the menu bar to find out how.

This Suite will be available starting June 1st.

Episode 134: Unboxing Annual Catalog Preorder!

Hello my crafty peeps!

I've got an unboxing video for you today! These products are part of the new Annual Catalog preorder. One of the benefits to being a demonstrator is that I have early access to new items. Sometimes I just don't have the patience I should. Lol. If you would like to become a demonstrator in the month of May you will be able to pick some of the new catty items for your starter kit. You can join as a hobby demo for the discount, or you can do it as a business. All you have to do to stay active is to meet your quarterly minimums. My team is a drama free and positive group. We support each other like a family. If this sounds like something you'd like to be a part of I would love to have you join my team of Pixie Crafters. As an added bonus you will also be part of my upline's team which will allow you access to so many wonderful demonstrators. Just click the tab in the menu bar to sign up. Feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

Episode 133: Scrapbook Saturday! using Stampin' Up! Jar of Love bundle

Hello my crafty peeps!

Welcome to another Scrapbook Saturday! Today's layout features photos I took just a couple weeks ago. We love having bonfires on nice nights. It's a lovely way to have some family time unplugged from all the electronic devices in our modern world. This is our first Spring in our new home, our first home. The backyard is nice and big and has a small hill from the back of the yard to the house. A hill perfect to lay back on and gaze at the stars. There's not a lot of light pollution where we are which makes it perfect for stargazing. Or looking for UFOs...
I noticed my kiddo and the little princess laying next to each other with Benji cat and rushed over to take some pics. I love how they turned out and couldn't wait to scrap them. I'm continuing to use retiring products mixed with products that will continue to be available.

Episode 132: Eastern Palace White Gift Box

Hello my crafty peeps!

I'm going to miss the White Gift Boxes. They are perfect for home decor or gift giving. All you bakers out there will find these fit standard size cookies quite well. If you require the services of a taste tester I willingly volunteer. Lol. And the boxes and bags from Stampin' Up! are food safe. Bonus! These are so easy to decorate especially with the stamp sets and punches/dies you'll find in my online store. The hardest part is tying the bow!

Love the Lemon-Lime Twist ribbon? Me too! In my video I'll show you how you can dye ribbon to any color you need.

Note: Lemon-Lime twist and Eastern Palace DSP are only available in the Eastern Palace bundles from May 1-31. June 1st they will be available individually in the annual catalog.

Hello my crafty peeps!

This is a fantastic time to combine the old and the new! The card I show you today has retiring elements like the Petite Petals set mixed with some of the new In Colors. I love the color combination of Pink Pirouette, Lemon-Lime Twist, and Fresh Fig. Very Springtime! And boy is it good to have Spring here. My apple and pear trees will be blooming soon and I can't wait to have that view outside my art room. This is a simple card that is perfect for beginner or advanced crafters and stampers.

Note: Lemon-Lime Twist and Fresh Fig are only available in the Eastern Palace bundles May 1-31. June 1st they will be available individually through the Annual Catalog.

Episode 130: Scrapbook Saturday! using the Eastern Palace Suite

Hello my crafty peeps!
Welcome to the last day of Eastern Palace Suite week! I had so much fun doing Suite Week that I think I'll have to start doing it with other Suites.

Today it's Scrapbook Saturday so I simply had to do a scrapbook layout. I decided to use photos of when I got my nose pierced. Since nose piercings are a part of Indian Culture and I feel the Eastern Palace Suite has an Indian flare, I thought this would be a good theme. While I didn't pierce my nose for any religious purposes, I acknowledge the beauty and meaning behind the Hindu practice.
