Dog Days of Summer Stampin' Blends Give Away

Hello everyone! Summer is almost over- can you believe it? And while this summer may have been very different from any other summer, the earth still spins and time marches on. 

 With that in mind, I thought we'd finish off summer with a fun ordering special! There won't be a Facebook Friday this week (I'm attending a Leadership Summit with Stampin' Up) so this will replace your ordering bonus for this week through September 8th. 


I am rewarding all of my online orders between Aug. 26, 2020 and September 8, 2020 with free Stampin' Blends!! 

FBetween today and September 8, 2020, I am rewarding all of my online orders with free Stampin' Blends!! 
For every $50 you spend (pre tax and ship, and after you use any Bonus Days Coupons), I will send you a pair of Stampin' Blends of your Choice!!
  • All orders MUST use the Host Code B9AJ3HCF. Even if your order is over $150, you must use the host code.
  • Please email me as soon as you place your order with which color(s) you want. You an see them all here. (at the time of this email, all the new In Color markers as well as Old Olive are on back order until the September 21.) 
  • This offer can also be combined with my Facebook Friday free project offer beginning Tuesday September 1st. You can earn the projects for free with just $35 and the Blends for free as well if you bump your order over $50. This offer can NOT be combined with any other offer, including classes.  If you spend $50, you will also get this month's All Star Tutorial Bundle for Free!!
  •  If you order in conjunction with Facebook Friday, I will ship your Blends with your Facebook Friday projects, which will delay the shipping of those by several days. Usually I ship them on Wednesday, but it will most likely be the following Saturday or Monday because I have to wait for them to arrive from SU.

And I thought I'd share with you the photos of my kit preparations this week! My Playful Pets Class to Go ships out this morning. It's quite the process getting these kits out the door! 

The first thing I do is CUT, CUT, CUT! Lots and lots of pieces, including die cuts. 

Next up is all the sorting. 

And more sorting....

And then, my favorite part- packing up the kits. I find it so satisfying to see them all completed! 

In case you've never ordered a class to go, this is what my kits look like!

While the Playful Pets Class to Go kits are no longer order able, you can find the PDF option here in my PDF store.

Halloween Night Magic Treats Class To Go

It’s that time of the year- spooky bats, twinkling jack o lantern and excited trick or treaters! This year’s Halloween Treats class features the Halloween Night Magic Bundle found in the 2020 Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. I’ve designed six different treat holders for you to create and fill with Halloween treats!  

  All the projects in this class feature the Halloween Night Magic stamp set and coordinating dies. 

You will need  Memento Black, Gray Granite, Cajun Craze and Blackberry Bliss ink pads. You will also need a Wink of Stella brush and a 2” Circle Punch.  Adhesives used include Stampin’ Seal +, Tombow, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.  

You can order ink and adhesive here or use what you already have. You can add on teh Wink of Stella Brush and Stampin' Seal + to your kit at catalog price (I pay the tax and shipping!) 

The class kits will include six project kits and the full color step by step tutorial PDF.

Each class kit will arrive at your front door sorted and organized by project. I will do all the scoring, punching and cutting for you (other than what needs to be done with your new dies.)

  This class to go has three options:

Option #1- $67

This is the full Class To Go Kit. Included are: 

  • Halloween Night Magic stamps and Dies ($46.75 value) 
  • 1 bolt Gray Granite Ribbon (FREE)
  • 1/5th of a pack of Iredescent Pearls
  • Six Make and Take packets 
  • Full step by step PDF

*Some items may go on back order or unorderable which could cause delay in shipping.   

Option #2- $30

This is the option for those who already own the Halloween Night Magic stamps and dies. You will need them to complete your projects so only choose this option if you already own the bundle.  

  • 1 bolt Gray Granite Ribbon 
  • 1/5th of a pack of Iredescent Pearls
  • Six Make and Take packets 
  • Full step by step PDF

Option #1 and #2 ship in a Priority Mail Padded Envelope for $8. This includes tracking and insurance. 

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, please email me! Click here to purchase just the PDF Tutorial (Seperate page.)

Option #4- $18

 Sweet Stampede Members (my first level downline) can purchase this option for the make and take kits and PDF. This is a perk for beloning to my team! You can see all the Sweet Stampede benefits here. 

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. 

There is no actual online class, this is just a kit that comes to your mailbox and is available to do at your convience. The registration website will send you a email reminder around the time it is expected to arrive, but there is nothing to look for online other than the email with the PDF. 

Registration will close on September 19th .

Expected shipping date of all kits is on or before September 24th.

August In Color Club Cards

Hello everyone! Today, i'd like to share my In Color cards for this month's In Color Club. I selected the fun Press On stamp set to create this month's fun card. 

I always love the way the same card looks in a variety of colors. This year's In Colors are so bright and fun! And the Cinnamon Cider, the one kind of odd ball non bright color, looks the very best because it's coffee colored!! 

Misty Moonlight

Magenta Madness


Cinnamon Cider

Just Jade

My In Color Club is quite large so it takes me several days to make all the cards and one whole day to sort out their kits and another day to pack and label them for shipping. 

I do love how the colors look when they're all spread out and sorted! as my kids would say "that's so satisfying!" 

Each month, my club members also receive a bonus embellishment and this month, everyone got a bolt of the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon (my favorite!!) 

While my In color Club is closed (you can only join in May each year,) you can find all the In Color products here in my store.

Facebook Friday- Celebration Tidings

Hello everyone and welcome to Facebook Friday! 

This week, I've three different ways to use the Celebration Tidings Bundle form Stampin' Up. I've got a Halloween, a Fall and a Christmas project today!  

 In case you've never joined me for Facebook Live, I go live every week, (typically on Friday at 2:00 CST but today is at 11:00 AM) on my Pink Buckaroo Stampers Group page with three projects. Everyone is welcome to join! 

If you are unable to join me live, I will upload the recording here afterwards.

First, I'll show you how to make this fun Halloween bag topper. I believe this is what these dies were originally intended for. And they make creating treats so simple! 

Next up, I'll show you how the large label can be turned into a fancy lid for a gift box! 

And last, we'll make a treat holder which also features the Poinsettia Dies.

They have all the products I used and measurements for each project. 

***Remember, if you put in an order ($35 minimum) by 
Monday, August 24th, 2020 at midnight, 
I'll send you all three make and takes for free!

But, your order MUST be in by Monday at midnight!! 
You must use Hostess Code BBZWGEGZ.

Prize Patrol!
Congratulations to the winners from the last FB Live: Melissa Sibert and Diane Little.  Please email me your mailing address. You have two weeks to claim your prize.

Prized Peony Club Create Projects

Hello everyone! I thought I'd give you a glimpse into my new Club Crete program. I started prepping this month's Prized Peony projects on Friday and finished them up yesterday. It's a big undertaking as it's quite a big program! 

This month's kits required 240 yards of Petal Pink Ribbon. 

And 240 Ink Daubers. 

Lots and lots, countless really, pieces of cardstock! 

Once I have everything prepped, I set it up kind of like a factory line. 

All the projects are lined up and I go down the line picking one of each make and take and product that's included. 

I bag each one by hand. This is something I do myself to ensure they are done right! I take the packaging very seriously because I want it to be a beautiful kit when it arrives. 

This month's kit include a bolt of Misty Moonlight Ribbon, 1/4 pack of DSP, a pack of Gems, 2 yards of Petal Pink Ribbon and 2 Sponge Daubers. Each month also includes a PDF and a video. 

Here are all five projects laid out. 

While this month's kit is already sold out, the PDF and video tutorial is still available in my online PDF store. You can find it here. 

What is Club Create? 
Do you love craft kits? Do you love getting surprises in the mail? My new program called Club Create is all that and more!!

For $39 a month, you will receive a fun craft kit, designed and constructed by me,  that includes at $20+ in product, several make and takes, a video tutorial and a PDF. 

Each month, I will choose one stamp set or bundle and design fun projects for you to create. If you don’t already have the stamp set, you can add it on to your kit or use what you already have. By adding on to your kit, you will save on tax and shipping! 

September's Club Create Kit will feature the Autumn Goodness bundle. 
To be included in September's Kit count, you must be subscribed by September 7th.

As a thank you for your membership, after 6 consecutive months, you will receive a $25 in product bonus to spend on whatever you choose! 

Each month the Club Create fee will automatically be charged to your account, so you won’t have to worry about missing any deadlines. You can cancel any time. All subscription fees will be billed though Pay Pal. 

In order to receive that month’s Club Create Kit, you have to be subscribed by the 7th of the month. Club Create kits will ship on or before the 20th of each month. 

I will email you several weeks before with the name of the stamp set we will be using as well as any specific inks or other product you might need. Shipping is Free!
