Last Chance Don't Miss It

#thoughtbranchesbundle #lindabauwin

Have you gotten the Thoughtful Branches Bundle yet?  Tomorrow is the last day for this Exclusive Offer.  Don't let it pass you by.  I had several gals this week during my Christmas Card Club change their minds and get this set.

Why?  Well they said they weren't overly excited about the set and then they made these two Christmas Cards and fell in love.  What do you think?

Holiday Catalog Creative Fold Video

#staroflight #lindabauwin full

Well I started out to createthis creative fold for the video today.  Using the New Star of Light Stamp Set and the Starlight Framelit Dies.  The Whisper White Card Stock measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and was scored at the 1 1/2" and the 4 1/4".  The Night of Navy measure 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 1 " x 5 1/2".  But when I went to do the video, I grabbed a piece of Whisper White that measured 5 1/4" x 8".  And this is what I got.

#staroflight #lindabauwin smaller

Talk about a senior moment.  When I was doing the video, I thought this is wrong, but just kept right on.  So I took the 5 1/4" x 8" and did the same score at the 1 1/2" x 4 1/4", but because the card stock was smaller, it gave a totally different look.  The Night of Navy measure on this card 1" x 5 1/4" and 1 1/2" x 5 1/4".  I put the 1" piece on the right side, even though I scored the card at the 1 1/2", because it was a smaller piece of card stock it left a small side.  Since the card was smaller, I needed to put a 4 1/4" 5 1/2" Night of Navy on the back to make a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card.

Once again I proved, there are no mistakes in hand stamping.  So what do you think do you the card I set out to do or the one I did on the video?

 

 

Don't forget on Thursday, Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog will be released and I will be releasing this card as my Stamp of the Month.

Moments That Take Your Breath Away.

#view #lindabauwin
This past month has been very difficult on many accounts.  I can never say it enough, God has surround me with so many amazing people in my life, that help get through the day.  So many of them I would have never met, if it hadn't been for stamping.  And that was the case this week.

I was contacted by a dear friend and member of my stamping family, who said pack an overnight bag, I want to take you some where for the night.  No clues.

The picture above is where I sat and did nothing, as beautiful meals where served to me.  I don't know when I have just sat and did nothing.  The past year I have kept every waking minute busy.  But not only were meals served they were over the top.

This place is a Top Notch Bed & Breakfast with the must amazing hostess.  Check out my dinner.  It melted in your mouth.

#dinner #lindabauwin

Check out these adorable Lady Bugs.  OMG and you will never guess what that spots are Basic Black Card Stock.  Every detail from the chocolates on my pillow to warm plates.  And not only dinner but breakfast too over the top.

#breakfast #lindabauwin

The gardens, the view, the home, and the lovely people that live there gave me such precious memories I will never forget.

#garden #lindabauwin   #fireplace #lindabauwin

If you have read this far, I am sure you are thinking where do I make reservations at?   Well you can't, it is not a Bed & Breakfst.  This beautiful place is a private home with very giving-private people who live there, so I can't even tell you who they are.  But I can say I am truly blessed to say I feel they are very dear friends. And I can never say thanks enough.

Time For Creative Fold Video

#doublezfoldcard #lindabauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video is a Double Z Fold Card, featuring the Sitting Here Stamp Set.  Z Fold Cards seem to be so popular right now and they can take several different twists.  I call this a Double Z, but that is what I called the card below that I did at my Recent Stamp Retreat.  I think maybe it should be called a Triple Z Fold,  as there are 3 Z's in that card.

#triplezfold #lindabauwin

What do you think?  Do you see the three z's?  You have the card and the two Z's to form the Fence.  This card uses the popular Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is only available until August 31 or while supplies last.  

Do you have your Thoughtful Branches Bundle yet?  If you order in my Online Store, and use Hostess Code YZ3AH4NA, I will send you a tutorial of a card box and cards.  The card above also uses the Faux Illusion Technique that I shared in a video post here.

The sizes of card stock I used to create the Z Fold Card from the video are as follows

  • 4 1/4" x 11" Sahara Sand Card Stock Scored at 5 1/2" x 2 3/4"
  • 4" x 5 1/4" Black Card Stock
  • 2 pieces of 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" Black Card Stock
  • 2 pieces of Soft Sky Card Stock 2 1/2" x 5"
  • 1" x 11" Garden Green Card Stock Scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4"
  • 1/2" x 10" Soft Sky Card Stock Scored at 2 3/4" x 5 1/2"  Watch the video to see why this piece is an inch shorter

Retreat Highlights

#stampretreat #lindabauwin

What an amazing Stamp Retreat this past weekend.  Let's just say Mother Nature has given us  a lot of different weather over that last 10 years, but this weekend was definitely the hottest.  But that didn't stop these ladies from stamping the weekend away.

There were thirty-six women at the retreat and four states were represented.  Those coming the furthest where from Illinois.    Every year we have a few newcomers.   They are always so shocked at all they get for their $185.  From home cooked meals to having all their projects designed for them.

We have door prizes, play bingo and of course there is the name tag competition.  I wanted to share the winners from this camp.  

Kim Baker from Hennepin, Il

#nametag #linabauwin

Ace Hill from Jefferson, Oh check out those cattails.  OMG have no idea how she wore this name tag it was heavy.

#AceNameTag #lindabauwin

And then there was Holly Hayes who is also from Jefferson, OH.  And Holly's name tag was so fitting.

#hollyna

Would you like to join me in my last Stamp Retreat of the year?  Well it will the weekend of October 28-31 which is one of the prettiest times of the year to be on the shores of Lake Erie.
