Happy Birthday, Ewe!

While I'm having so much fun doing what I do, I forget sometimes that I've been doing this a long time. Fads and project types have definitely come and go. Back when I started as a demonstrator, heat embossing was a huge thing, and we used TVs and light boxes to dry emboss. We used lots of eyelets and brads, there was no embossing and die cutting machine. There were no such thing as bundles or suites. We made shaker cards using photo slide mounts. No one yet had dreamed up pinwheel cards, and I don't even recall hearing about z-fold cards. But early on in my time as a demonstrator, someone amazing showed me how to make a waterfall card. Oh, how I loved to make waterfall cards!


With new fun fold cards coming into the picture, it wasn't long, and I forgot about the waterfall card. I got busy making other amazing cards...until a certain Paper Pumpkin kit in September of 2018. Then suddenly I was reminded again about the amazing waterfall cards I used to make, knowing items in the kit would make a perfect waterfall card. See it, along with all the cutting instructions here:



Fast forward three years to when the adorable sheep show up in the Sale-a-bration brochure. And those Sheep Dies? Ladies and Gentlemen, those are a deal breaker. No more hiding that amazing waterfall card. Let's crack it open again and let those sheep be the stars of the show!


The Counting Sheep stamp set and the Sheep dies are each free with a $50 order. So with a $100 order, you can order both for free, and what's better than free? Click the "shop" button above to get that order started! But before you do that, check out these sheep...
