NEW ~ TRIPLI♥KITS - Gingerbread Collection!

 

SO excited to share an idea that has been brewing in my brain for TOO long!  I have been creating, what I am now calling, my CLASSIC card Kits for 14 years.

During that time I have gotten frequent requests for other types of kits but have never had the time to evolve... but a lot has changed in my life this last year, personally AND with my business and it's just time to shake things up a bit!

Introducing, Triplikits!

One Design, 3 cards. Quick & Easy and includes everything you need (envelopes, foam squares, glue dots) to make your cards and start delivering some smiles!  You will just need some kind of double sided adhesive and a postage stamp! Pre-folded, Pre-cut and ready to assemble! Written instructions and Step-by-step photos + Bonus Printables.  The price also includes shipping!


Sometimes you just want QUICK!  and sometimes you just have a gap in your stash of cards and need more THANK YOU cards, or maybe you have several friends having BABIES all at the same time, or Grandchildren GRADUATING ... you get the idea.  So stay tuned, I'll be releasing more themed collections of Triplikits as well as some other exciting new Card Kit lines.

I WILL continue designing my CLASSIC card kits!  Not to worry.  I have some really fun ideas I'm working on right now, in preparation for my next card making retreat, RAINBOW of COLOR, March 26-27 (as long as Covid cooperates!)

But back to my FIRST Triplikit release!

My Sweet Gingerbread Collection!  These darlings will put a smile on your face and these colors will brighten everyone's December!  

Three different cards to choose from, OR buy all three and get a free bottle of Unicorn stickles!





If you are NEW to card making and don't have any double sided adhesive, I've got two choices for you in the drop-down menu if you don't want to make a trip to your local craft store.

E-Z Runner Petite Permanent Dots refillable Dispenser is a sweet little thing, easy on the hand and just enough to complete your kits and then some. 26 feet and .3" of translucent permanent adhesive dots.

If you think you want to try a few different kinds of adhesive, try the Adhesive Dispenser Value pack. This pack has over 150 ft of adhesive in 4 Dispensers and saves over 20% from buying separately.  Includes Permanent Squares, Strips, Vellum and Re-positional Dots.

Q's Creative Card Kit: HOLIDAY GNOMIES

Gnomes are a big trend right now with their long beards, pointy hats, bulbous noses and rosy cheeks.  I'm always curious why something that has been around for eons suddenly becomes trendy?

Gnomes come from centuries of western European tradition so when I found this adorable traditional european paper line, I knew it was a match made in Gnome heaven!

Cue the sweet Gnome Faces (I like to see the eyes!), Holiday friends, Winter landscapes, Mushroom shaped cards, fun sentiments and those little extra embellishments I ♥ so much.

One Large 5x7 card, Skinny Tri-fold card, Shaped postcard and 2 standard A2 cards. All these amazing shapes/cut files & printables come with the purchase of the kit AND you get a step-by-step slideshow to easily take you through each project.

A big part of the dimension of these cards if the use of Ball tools. 

 If you don't already have those, you can add them to your cart in the drop-down menu below.  I used Hickory Smoke & Pumice Stone Distress Ink to distress which are also available to purchase if you don't already have them, OR you can use a dark & light grey ink OR opt not to distress.

Q's Creative Kits: Wicked Fun Gifts

Come in for a bite!  Because what would Halloween be without treats!

And NOT just for kids and NOT just the store bought kind.  I ♥ to gift at Halloween.  Why?  Because it's FUN.  Seriously, I will gift to just about anyone because I want to put a smile on their face.

On top of 4 gift packages, I also included an adorable mini tri-fold FOLIO with all sorts of Halloween messages, a hidden pocket and insert and a couple of fold-outs, perfect for a few pictures and notes.  I plan on making these into keepsakes for my Grandgirls so they can remember Halloween 2020! 

But don't miss the skeleton hand charm grasping the real glass vial filled with sparkly things on the "eat, drink" bag... It's these little details that make my kits unique.

Of course, I am card maker at heart, so this is the second of TWO Wicked Kits:  You can see my Wicked CARDS here!  BUY both and get FREE shipping!

HOTEL:  We are staying at the beautiful new Marriott Springhill Suites just 4 minute walk away (or 1 if your driving!) to our retreat room.  Suites have 2 Queen beds as well as a living area with a couch that turns into a trundle bed (and will fit 2 people), so SHARE and SAVE!  Rooms are blocked out for our group and why we have such a great price!                                                    Lodging is an OPTION but not necessary to attending the retreat.  However, the few people that didn't stay over at the last retreat said how much they wished they had stayed over night.  MORE fun!  

Normally Springhill Suites has a FREE hot breakfast buffet, but with covid that has turned into a grab-and-go breakfast (no idea what's in there!?) and Coffee service.

Parking is free!

OCTOBER in UTAH:  Well, it's truly my FAVORITE month in Utah.  The weather is lovely (light jacket weather) and the leaves are turning.  Spend an extra night and go for a mountain colors drive (I will be sending more of this info to attendees).

RETREAT at THANKSGIVING POINT

Thanksgiving Point is an iconic treasure in Utah County.  It is a nonprofit indoor & outdoor farm, garden and museum complex.  Multiple dining options, movie theater, golf course, gift shops, several museums, Many Gardens, Farm country and Butterfly Biosphere (took my Grand daughters here, loved it!).                                                              Our spacious room is in the Museum of Ancient Life.  Thanksgiving Point is doing everything they can to reduce Covid risk.  Our tables (or groups of tables) will be at least 6 ft from each other.  Masks will have to worn at the buffet.
CLASS DETAILS:
The pictures above are such a TEASE, because really, there are SO many fun details in each project!

WICKED FUN Halloween Gifts:  A great collection of treat bags, box AND a very special tri-fold mini keepsake with flip ups, slider pocket and insert with room for little pictures & notes!                                                                                 Don't miss the skeleton hand peeking out from the flip-up tag grabbing a real glass test tube filled with sparkly things!                                               Hidden spots for messages, TONS of dimension, embellishments, ribbon, spooky charms and more.  You'll have TONS of FUN putting these projects together...then filling and gifting them this Halloween.
WICKED FUN Halloween Cards
:  So many details that make this kit a keeper!  Bright pops of Lime green, butterflies and flowers make this the loveliest kind of spooky!                                                    Fun fold outs, floater card, closures and skinny card too (because they're all the rage now, even though we've been making them for years!).
Ok, the nightmare is over...We put away the pumpkins and spookiness and start thinking about Christmas!  Such a FUN time of year, SO many holidays!  So many card & gift giving opportunities!

HOLIDAY GNOMIES Card Class:
  THIS was SO much fun to design and SO much work.  Yikes!                                    Gnomes are NOT all created equal. I really wanted a CUTE gnome and he needed EYES.  In the end it was all worth it.                                I'm crushing on my mushrooms, little doors & windows, Adorable pattern paper, hugging penguins, hanging snowmen and that beard?  Fuzzy, fluffy, it's the bomb!  This is my ode to all things cute during the holidays!
PEACE on EARTH Card Class:
  I think we all need some of this in our life right now ♥.                                                 This collection of Christmas cards make me swoon.  The color combination is delightful with soft shades of blue, sage and a bright red.                            Beautiful foliage, meaningful sentiments, metal charms, luscious ribbon, silhouettes, Glitter brads, Gold foil stars...not to mention these cards are going flip up, bridge over and swing, just to make card making a little more interesting!

                                           
Phew!  If you're still with me, congratulations, you have a better span of attention than I do. :)  I would LOVE to see you at my Fall Retreat, so if you have any questions, please email me!  

See you ALL soon!  Sue
