JenniferCards, Specials & Deals0 Comments

Do you love getting a deal?  Really, who doesn’t, right?    Well, after Stampin’ Up! announced last week that they were going to have a Flash Sale each Thursday in October (basically one day only sales on some product in the online store), I thought that was it for the extra deals this month. Whelp, I was wrong!  They just posted this morning that each Tuesday they are starting weekly deals as well!  Now I’ll admit I think I’m going to go just a little bit cross-eyed trying to keep all the deals straight, the good news is that between … Read More

When they announced the Color Refresh and told us that 10 colors were going to be retiring, I looked at the list and was a little sad but overall thought that I didn’t use the colors that much and so I wasn’t going to miss them too much.

It is easy for me to make my cards to the standard card base size; sometimes mixing it up with a square 4 1/4” x 4 1/4”.   But usually sticking with my basic because it is so efficient with cardstock. (for me, a standard card base is 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” – if a visual helps, I have a post on cutting a standard card base here) Well, sometimes, I have a vision of a card in my head and as I create it I discover that it totally does NOT fit the standard size.  But when I finish, … Read More
