What kind of shopper are you?

Hello stampers. Just two days before Christmas and if you still have shopping to do, be ready to brave the crowds. Most likely I will be one of them. Now if you have teenagers in the house you have probably been mocked for how you shop. I have been rightly accused of being a lazy shopper. My ideal way to shop is to walk in the store and see what I want on the mannequin. Then I buy the whole outfit. Easy. Fast. But then my girls would say, “But, mom, you don’t have to wear it together all the time, you can mix it up a bit.”

Well, the same thing goes for stamping. We have gorgeous suites now that make coordinating your projects very easy. Everything matches and coordinates. So I was pretty proud of myself when I decided that the Sprinkles Embellishments from the Cool Treats Suite (aka birthday confetti) would pair very well with the Carousel suite. In fact I wanted to make a shaker card with it. So yes, I can mix it up and it is actually a lot of fun. So here you go, what do you think of my card??Carousel Birthday card using the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment kit and the Falling Petals Embossing FolderI also used the coordinating paper pack to make a very simple card. This card also used the Cupcakes and Carousels embellishment kit.Cupcakes and Carousels clean and simple card uses the coordinating embellishment kit.Here is the ultimate simple card, one that we will be making at the Bingo Party on Friday January 13 at 7pm. It is a notecard size and uses the paper pack from the suite as well as the embellishment kit.This notecard uses the Cupcakes and Carousel suite: the paper stack, the embellishment kit and the stamp set.Here you have all three projects and I also scattered the pieces from the embellishment kit in front of the cards so you can get a better look at them. I made myself a promise to not hoard these kits but to use them in classes. Usually they are just so darn cute that I can’t bring myself to use them in a class. Also there are limited pieces in a kit so I have to plan ahead to make sure I have ordered enough…not my strong suit.Cupcakes and Carousel Suite will take you back to the joy of childhood. Perfect for birthdays or just saying hi. Spread the love, send a card today.I am going to finish off this post by sharing the video I made on how my bingo parties work. I meant to put in yesterday’s post but I got so excited I hit “publish” before I realized my mistake.

That’s all for today, wishing you happy last minute preparations for Christmas. Remember, I offer gift certificates in any denomination and I also have some stocking stuffers on hand including the no longer available 2 1/2 inch circle punch!
