Time to make those Thank You cards!

       Time to make those thank you cards!  Now that all the presents have been unwrapped and some playing/reading/wearng has happened, you need to sit down and write some thank you notes.  But wait!  Wouldn't it be even more meaningful if those Thank You cards were ones you made?  Oh, I know what you're saying..."Tracey, I don't know how to make cards."  But my answer to you is, "I can teach you and it's very #simplestamping."  Here is one that anyone can do in 2 minutes or less!


I have the supplies, I can talk you thru the first one and you'll be cranking them out in no time.  You'll even have fun doing it!  You might even want to change one thing to make it personal from you.  You can do that!  Contact me to schedule your FREE card making session.  You won't regret it.

Last Chance for Holiday catalog items!

     Last few days of the Holiday catalog and most of it is going away.  So put your order in now and some of the items are discounted.  Here's a video to see some of the items:

Click here to order.

If your order is less than $150 in products, please use the hostess code: PUGGT9VX.  You'll get a FREE gift from me!  If it's over $150, don't use the code, you'll get to choose your rewards from Stampin' Up and you'll still get a free gift from me.

If you're a local to me federal employee, and are part of the furloughed group, I would like to offer you a free stamping party or session.  Please contact me to schedule your session. It's great art therapy.  I will also send you home after with some FREE craft items.

Merry Christmas and here's to a great New Year,

Don't go out in the cold and wind! Shop on line and get a gift for the whole year!


     So, my husband just came back and said the wind is really making it hard to get around. He said it was worse on the road than in the stores! Now is the time to shop on line.  Order the Animal Expedition bundle now or any part of it and subscribe to the Paper Pumpkin.  Wrap the Animal Expedition items and put them under the tree.  Then in January, the Paper Pumpkin kit will come in the mail box and will coordinate with the Animal Expedition items.  There will be so many projects to be made with this combination.  The kit alone will be able to make valentines.   Click the link below to subscribe for your gift subscription and then return here to click on the items below to order them as a bundle in clear stamps or wood stamps.  Then the crafting fun begins.

Happy December!

     When a new month starts we start a new hostess code.  This month the December hostess code is: PUGGT9VX. When you place an order with me that is less than $150 in product, please use the hostess code and you'll earn a free gift from me. Also starting with orders placed today, for every $50 or multiple order, you'll have your name placed in a square on my 50/50 board. Once the board is full, a number will be randomly chosen and the winner will earn a $50 order thru me.

Please join me next Saturday, December 8th at Lago Vista High School's Give Back to the World craft fair. I'll have a booth there and 5% of my proceeds will be a donation to Easter Triumph passion play. I'll have handmade crafts and a chance to stamp an item. Also a chance to earn a free stamping party for you or you and your friends.

Crafting with you,
Tracey Gouraud
