Christmas Online Card Classes

Happy Fall Ya'll!

The fact that it is October truly astounds me.  I am not sure where the last days of summer went, but here on the east coast we are definitely feeling the fall weather creep in.  I am looking forward to all the amazing color that will soon be upon us, but other then Thanksgiving and Christmas, I would really just rather stay in the Spring and Summer months.  Anyway, enough ramblings.  I decided for the Christmas Season Online classes to release all 3 classes at once to offer you a chance to get all 3 sets in time to make your holiday cards.  I will also offer an Online Tags and Treats class sometime in November to help with gift packaging.  So here is how this works, you can purchase each class individually between now and December 31st (while supplies last), or you can order all 3 classes at once and you will get a small discount as well as your choice of DSP (there is a place for you to enter the DSP of your choice).

Please click on the Online Classes Tab to order and see the additional supplies suggested.

Kits will start shipping the week of October 17th.  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Stampin' Up! Pinterested Inspired Sunflower Card

What can I say other than I AM SO BEHIND!  With the kids back to school, and our family embarking on a new healthy eating regime, I got myself a few days, okay, really a week behind.  Anyway, the card in today's video was inspired by a card created by Dawn McVey from Papertrey Ink.  I loved her card and wanted to create something a bit more fitting for the season, so I pulled out my Festive Flower Punch and came up with this Sunflower card.  I hope you enjoy!

The few supplies used in today's card are available in my online store by clicking the link on the right sidebar.

See you in the next video!

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts Stacked Pumpkins Card

I am so sorry I am getting this uploaded so late.  Just doesn't seem like enough hours in the day sometimes.  My family and I rececently started on a program called Whole30 (you can follow our journey at or on Instagram @C3Planning) to help reset our relationship with food (and hopefully loose a few pounds) and I never realized that I would spend so much time inthe kitchen preparing meals.  We are only on our first week, so I am hoping that my meal prep skills will kick in soon, otherwise I my life is going to be in complete caios until October 4th!

Anyway, here is the first of this week's video projects.  I absolutely love these pumpkins and think they pair so nicely with the sentiment for Love and Affection.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the supplies please shop at my online store.

See you later this week for our next Pinterest Inspired project!

New Annual Catalog - How to get your copy...

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday,

As demonstrators, we get to see the new catalogs before they go live to the public at the end of May.  Ordering begins on June 1st.  This a time we as demonstrators AND customers anxiously await.  Although I don't have my physical copy, I was able to see the online version, and I am really excited about the offering.  With the new "in-colors" and a ton of new stamps, I can not wait to place my first order.

Do you want to get your hands on a copy of the new catalog?  Anyone who has placed an order of $50 or more with me in the last 6 months will automatically receive a free catalog (if you place orders with me and are listed as "no contact" then you will not get a catalog because I don't know who you are).  If you haven't placed an order with me but still want to get your hands on the catalog, all I ask is that you pay for a portion of the shipping ($4.50).  You can click on the button below and it will take you to Paypal.  Please make sure that your shipping/mailing address is entered correctly, I will not be responsible for returned catalogs due to errors.

If you fall in the "no contact" category, please feel free to email me with a recent order number so I can verify who you are and I will be happy to send you a catalog.

Please let me know if you have any questions!

2016 Stampin' Up! Punch Art Lotus Flower

Hello stampers!

Boy is it cold!  I hope you are all staying warm and spending your time crafting.

Today's card features one of the new Occasions sets Friends & Flowers.  I had to have this set for the cute little bunny, and then I didn't know what to do with it.  I happened to be looking at the Remarkable You set and it struck me that I could use the Festive Flower and the image from the Friends and Flower set to create a punch art Lotus flower, and then my mind was in motion.  This card doesn't require a lot of stamping and if you wanted to just punch out the petal in your color choice, you could pretty much skip the stamping all together.

Thanks for stopping by!

New Feature: Plan with Me - January Collection (C3Planning)

Hello and Happy New Year everyone!

I hope that each of you had time to relax and enjoy your family and friends and maybe even got some new crafty tools to play with.

As with any new year, I create a couple of really important goals for myself.  They aren't always huge goals, but usually things that I have been tossing around in my head, like throwing away junk mail right away instead of letting it pile up.  Last year's goals were to create/post a video every week and begin hosting a class each month.  I am happy to stay that I accomplished both of these goals which I plan to continue and expand in 2016 as well.

In the process of creating goals for myself for 2016, I kept coming back to one aspect that I really wanted to explore...Planning.  I love to plan, make lists, and check things off.  It  gives me a sense of accomplishment, so I have decided to try my hand at the planner sticker craze.  Starting this week, each week I will feature a new plan with me video that covers the upcoming week.  These videos will feature new stickers that I have created and that will be available to purchase in my Etsy Store (  I hope to show you ways to incorporate your stamping into your planner as well.  However, don't worry, I will still be making card and papercraft videos.  This is still my main focus and will still be posting videos twice a week.  So without further ado, here is my first Plan With Me Video for 2016.  It is a long one and I tried to edit out some of the repetitive functions.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back on Tuesday for our regularly schedule card video.
