Come visit me at my new site

Hello dear friends!  I've been building a new website and I'd LOVE it if you'd come over there to see what I'm up to!  For now, I'm on a free Weebly site but I'm working on moving that to a WordPress site.  Since I'm doing it myself, at least for now, it's taking for-evah! Anyway, I put a post up today and I'd love for you to visit!  While you are there, sign up for my newsletter and you'll be the first to receive coupon codes, new product news and crafty tutorials.  Some free printable downloads are also in the works and when I get that worked out, you'll get a nice treat.

So what are you waiting for?  Come visit me at Cara's Scrap 'N Stamp Art and be nice, it's under construction!

Stamping with Stampin' Up! - Color Refresh

Happy Friday!  I'm just off a 3 day migraine and I'm feeling like a brand new woman today...almost!  I was hardly over the news that Richie Sambora wasn't joining Bon Jovi on this year's tour (Jersey girl!) when I got word of Stampin' Up's new "Color Refresh" list.  What's THAT you say?  Well, it's Stampin' Up's new colors for 2013-2014 for their annual catalog set to debut shortly.

Have a peek at the Color Refresh list!!

Some favorites are coming back, some favorites leaving and there's even one brand new color!

The other Stampin' Up news is that they are offering FREE shipping now until April 8 so this is a great time to stock up on all retiring/discontinuing color products which are only available while supplies last.  Head over to Stampin' Up and have a look around!

So what do you think?  Take action and let me know below what colors you'll miss and what colors you are so happy to see have made the new catalog!  I'm glad Pool Party made the cut but I'll miss Certainly Celery.  

Feel free to share this info with your crafty friends!  It's easy, just choose your favorite share button below.  As always, thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

40th Birthday Cake Idea

What do you do when your Fabulous 40th Birthday turns into a Girl's Night Out?  You bring cake and cupcakes!!

Many thanks to my dear customer, Celena, for sharing her photo of this yummy and oh, so cute 40th birthday cake.  I wouldn't have thought to use my Fabulous at 40 stickers to decorate cupcakes but they are just the perfect touch.  Why?  These are not ordinary flimsy stickers.  They are first printed on quality 61 lb. matte photo paper.  I then apply a permanent adhesive sheet.  I punch each circle so you can add it to a cupcake  Or peel off the wax paper on the back to reveal the adhesive and you have a sticker to seal your party bag!

Visit Cara's Scrap 'N Stamp Art to see an assortment of 40th birthday party cupcake toppers, candy treat bags, cake toppers, banners and more!

Mojo Monday 282 and a New Kit from Wild Blueberry Ink

Good morning!  This week I made a hybrid card for the Mojo Monday 282 Sketch with papers and elements you can find in Wild Blueberry Ink's new kit "Day Dream Believer" over at Pixels & Co.  I paired it with some Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry and I think that just makes the card pop.  I just love the colors Shirley combined in this kit!  You can find her kits at Pixels & Co.   Go have a peek around that brand new store!
