Today is the day!!!  It’s the first day you can order the Eastern Palace bundle!  As a demonstrator, we can order new products early.  I love this perk and I LOVE that I can share a Make It Monday project using this bundle right away.

Get the Eastern Palace Bundle at - May 1- 31, 2017 - Use Host Code and receive 25 tutorials using the bundle as my gift to you!

I have been chomping at the bit to share projects using this bundle because it is by far the most amazing stamp set and framelit set I’ve ever played with!!!  I feel like I could spend DAYS sharing all the things this bundle can do.  No joke!  It’s just unbelievable!

The framelits interact with each other in the most amazing ways.  Some framelits leave the die cut attached to the card BUT if you want to remove it, a quick snip-snip-snip and you have a separate die cut.  Other framelits leave a detailed die cut image that can fit into another framelit. Is that cool or what?

Stay tuned to Simply Simple Stamping because I have so many tips and tricks to using those framelits and the stamp set.  The possibilities are absolutely ENDLESS!  

If you order either the Starter Bundle or the Premier Bundle and use the MAY HOST CODE QMMNXM4H I have an incredible set of tutorials to send you showing you 24 different cards using JUST what comes in the bundle.  No need to pull out more cardstock, extra stamp sets, other ink pads – just the things that are in the bundle (tutorials are based off of the Premier Bundle because this bundle has the Framelits).

I know, I seem really over the top excited about this bundle but I am blown away by all the things you can do with this!  How about I hush now and I get to sharing.  Sorry…. I am just THAT EXCITED!!!

Is this card not GORGEOUS?  We created this quick card at a local meeting I had with some Oklahoma demonstrators.  They oohed and aahed over it.

Can you see how the main center image stays attached to the card?  SO cool!  The flower in the center was created with 2 framelits that nest together but you can use them separately as well.  This bundle is just insanely COOL to use!

Oh, and if you look closely at what comes in the bundle, you’ll see THICK VERY VANILLA CARDSTOCK!  YAY!!!  This makes the card extra study and strong.  LOVE!

Crazy weekend here for the Stewarts.  We had storms like CRAZY over the weekend.  Christina attends a small university and the high winds actually picked up the bleachers from the baseball field and threw them against a house across the street.  Trees were taken out.  It’s a shame.  It’s an OLD campus with lots of established trees.

 I know we need the rain but does anyone else find nighttime storms unnerving?  Thunder, lightning, hail, wind.  Those storms that wake me up scare me for some reason.  It was like I was 7 years old again.  I HATED night storms when I was a kid.  Yep, it was a very LOUD weekend with very little sleep.

The bright spot was taking the family to see the musical “The Producers” at a community theatre in Guthrie, OK.  Guthrie is one of those old towns with the old downtown area.  It’s just so quaint!  I love going there. The theatre is ancient and I love all the detain inside.  The show was FABULOUS!  I love Mel Brooks humor.  He is one of my favorites.  It was a great time and I think we all needed the break from life to laugh….especially Christina.  She is about to start finals this week so you know she’s under a lot of stress.  Mr. Awesome has been working some long hours on a big project at work.  It was nice to get them out for the night to just have FUN.
