Celebrating the Black in Black Friday

  We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends last week and were able to enjoy some Black Friday shopping. We neglected to publish our post last Friday, but wanted to share this project that Debbie Naylor created featuring Basic Black in honor of Black Friday...



  Debbie created a very non-traditional Christmas card featuring Basic Black with just a small pop of color from Real Red.  Please visit Debbie's blog post here for more information about this project.

  We are thankful to all of our readers and hope you'll join us again this Friday when we share Quick & Easy Christmas card ideas.

Celebrating 10 years of Fabulous Fridays!!!!





  Happy Friday and Happy 10 Year Anniversary to us!!  We published our first Fabulous Friday post way back on September 4, 2009 (see it HERE).  Originally there were 4 of us, all friends through Stampin' Up! who attended Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah in July 2009 and decided to start this creative journey together: Debbie Naylor, Jacque Craig, Karla Anders and Rachel Yurkanin.  We came from all over the United States but all had a love of Stampin' Up! in common.  Jacque left us a few years back to focus on her business. Jennifer Rawlings then joined us but is now taking a break to focus on her family. Rachel Yurkanin took a short break to focus on work/family and has since re-joined us.  Cindy Blekas was a long-time guest designer and we hope to see her pop back in from time to time.  Through the years we have enjoyed coming up with themes to get our creative juices flowing and we hope that we have inspired you.




  To thank you for visiting us each and every week we are giving away Blog Candy to a lucky winner each week for the next three Fridays! This week our Blog Candy includes a package of Large Pearl Basic Jewels, Crushed Curry Baker's Twine and the Beautiful Peacock stamp set.  To enter, please leave us a comment below - you can tell us what you've liked or what you'd like to see in future projects or themes, what your favorite Stampin' Up! products are, etc.... anything to encourage us and share in our celebration.  Next Thursday morning at 9 am ET (September 12, 2019), we will randomly choose a winner and announce it on our blog next Friday.  So what are you waiting for?  Go ahead and get a comment submitted so you don't forget to enter!  And when you're done with that, read on to see some fun Then and Now projects - we decided to take a past Fabulous Friday project and re-vamp it using current products... a fun CASE of a past project.  Enjoy!


Now...

And then...

  Up first is this fun butterfly card from Karla Anders.  She CASE'd her Fabulous Friday card from May 31, 2013.  Don't you like this vertical design? Be sure to visit Karla's blog post here for more information about her card.


Now...

And then...


  Next we have this sponged beach scene card from Debbie Naylor.  She CASE'd her Fabulous Friday card from June 14, 2013.  The stamp set, die cuts and colors may have retired but it isn't too far off, is it?  Be sure to hop over to Debbie's blog post here to get more details about this project.



Now...


And then...


  And last up is this fun nautical card from Rachel Yurkanin.  She CASE'd her Fabulous Friday card from June 30, 2017.  Looks like she drew her inspiration from the stripes and colors of her card.  For more information about this project, please visit Rachel's blog post here.
