Coffee Break Chocolate Treats Video Tutorial

Hello everyone! I've got a new tutorial for you today that features a coffee flavored chocolate. It's the same chocolate I used in the super cute treats I showed on my Facebook Group last week. I included them in my Coffee Break Class to Go as a thank you. 

Unfortunately, I've realized they are very hard to find. They are actually made by our local (Texas) grocery store called HEB. So, for those of you who have access to HEB, these will be great for you. If that's not you, I think these could easily be adapted to use a Giradeli Chocolate square. 


My color scheme was based on the packaging on the little chocolates- Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso.  I also used the copper trim that you can find in the Annual Catalog. Barely visible behind the coffee cup is the Coffee Break DSP. 

In the video below, you will find the full details on the chocolate. Here is package so you can see it's a flat chocolate square. 

Now, I originally started making these for my downline meeting. I was going to use them as my swaps. But then... 

I got my Holiday Catalog preorder in and just HAD to use the new coffee stamp set called Merry Cafe (it coordinates with the same framelits and is a great addition to that bundle if you already have it!) along with the new DSP called Painted Autumn. 

They're made the exact same way, except I used the larger coffee cup this time. I used two different ribbons also. Here, I used Peekaboo Peach Striped Ribbon. 

I didn't have enough of the Peekaboo Ribbon for all of them, so I also used the Pumpkin Pie Stitched Ribbon. I also added a piece of a coffee stir stick to each cup. Just snipped off the ends and added them with a glue dot! 

Now, you can find the full details for the first project in the video below. I made the video before I made the second version of these so you will only see the first sample in the video. The  products in the fall coffee treat won't be available until September 1st- unless you purchase the Starter Kit! Everyone who purchases a Starter Kit in August can choose form the Holiday Catalog as well!

Lemon Zest

Hello everybody and happy Monday! I've got a quick post for you this morning to show you this month's Stamp Club to Go Card. I used the fun Lemon Zest Bundle to make this card. 

The Lemon Zest stamp set is great not only because it has a coordinating punch (yay!!), but because it has some wonderful sentiments! They are not your usual sentiments and they are designed to be used on both the front and on the inside. 

Don't you just love that!?

Stamps: Lemon Zest
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black and Melon Mambo, Whole Lotta Lovely DSP

Tranquil Tulips and Kick Off The Seasons With Ronda and Erica

Typically,  Tranquil Tulips is a stamp set that is only available to "Hostess" or anyone who spends over $150. It's one of the ways you can spend your Stampin' Rewards.  It's a BEAUTIFUL set. It's also the set I am offering for FREE with my Kick Off the Holidays Classes. If you purchase both, not only do you get this exclusive stamp set for free, you also get an exclusive PDF with project tutorials using your new stamps!

Today, I want to share with you a project I created using that set. I have pumpkins on the brain (while it's forecasted to get to 107 degrees today!!) and chose to go with orange tulips and black DSP! Not Halloween per se, but.... still a fun color combo! 


This set is seriously beautiful. It is designed to give you a watercolor look. It is a two set stamp, which means you stamp one stamp first and then a second layer stamp over it to give it more depth. Here, I actually did some fussing cutting to give it even MORE depth. 

And who would have thought Lemon Lime Twist would look good with Pumpkin Pie, huh? It does!! It's such a fun color! 

I know many of you are going to ask me for the tutorial for this box, but it's part of this exclusive PDF that comes with these two classes! It's a perk when you buy both! Look how FUN and cute they are! When you buy both, you save on shipping too!

Pick a Pumpkin- Sneak Peek!!

Hey everybody! Are you ready for a sneak peek?? I've been busy getting the 2017 Holiday Catalogs labeled and ready to ship out to you all. I also have been busy prepping for next month's classes! This card was one of my creations! i LOVE this new set called Pick a Pumpkin. 


I love pumpkins. I mean, ALOT! I buy lots of pumpkin as soon as they arrive at the grocery store in September and keep them all the way through Thanksgiving. So, this set was a big draw for me. The best part- matching framelits!! Yes! And, you can't really see it well, but, that's a gourd on the right side. Love gourds too! 

I can't wait for September to get here so I can run and get my pumpkins! The other stamps I used here are the Burlap background stamp and the sentiment from Big on Birthdays. Both are in the Annual catalog and are available now! 
The Pick a Pumpkin bundle will be available September 1st. 

If you have ordered from me (from my Stampin' Up online store) in the last 6 months, you will automatically get a catalog in the mail from me this month. But, if you haven't and you don't already have a Demonstrator, I'd be happy to send you one too! Just shoot me an email with your mailing address!

Bike Ride Class To Go


Bike Ride Fancy Cards Class To Go
The bicycle is a symbol that transcends generations! It can be used by young children as well as the retired generation! It strikes memories of nostalgia in most people! The Bike Ride bundle from Stampin’ Up promises many opportunities for creating beautiful scenes through out the year for a variety of people in your life to help evoke these wonderful memories! In this planner, I have created five, quite fancy all occasion cards. Four of the five are actually considered fancy fold techniques and all promise to wow your recipients! 
Each class kit will arrive at your front door sorted and organized by project. I will do all the scoring, punch and cutting for you (other than what needs to be done with your new Framelits.) 
This set does not include any sentiments so all the sentiments I used are general ones pulled from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set. You can add that on here is you'd like.  

Check out the video below for more details! 


This class to go has four options:
Option #1 $66
This is the full Class To Go Kit. It includes the Bike Ride Bundle (stamps and Framelits- a $43 value!), a bolt of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon, a bolt of Dapper Denim Twine  and all five Make and Take materials. When you choose this option, I am actually including the ribbon for FREE! You will also receive the full PDF tutorial. Email me for the registration link.   Email me for Bike Ride registration link. 
Option #2- $35
This is the Class to Go Kit for those of you who already own the Bike Ride Bundle. You will need the stamps and framelits to create these projects, so only choose this option if you already own them. You will receive all five make and takes, a bolt of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon, a bolt of Dapper Denim Twine. You will also receive the full PDF tutorial. Email me for the registration link.  Email me for Bike Ride registration link. 
Option #1 and #2 both ship priority for $7. If you are local (San Antonio) and would like to pick up your class kit, choose "Porch Pick Up" to save on shipping. 
Option #3- $15
PDF only- want to cut your own cardstock and already own the products? This is the option for you. If you purchase the PDF Only option, you will be immediately emailed the links. If you do not receive them within five minutes of purchase, first check your spam folder and then please email me! Purchase just the PDF here. (Seperate page) 
Option #4- $10
Sweet Stampede Members (my downline) can purchase this option for the make and take kits and PDF.  Email me for Bike Ride registration link.  
All class kits and included product will be ordered and prepared together after the deadline. This is a preorder only and per SU policy, I do not have product on hand ready to ship. Because of this, it takes about 1 week after the deadline for me to order, cut, prepare and ship all the class kits.  Class Kits can only be mailed within the United States. If you live out of the US, you can still purchase the PDF. Email me for the registration link.
Registration will close on August 25th.
Expected shipping date of all kits is September 1st
