Weekly Update

Our trip to Charleston was fabulous, but I am feeling a little behind this week.  My apologies as I have so many things to tell you!  Here are the Weekly Updates, and the new Weekly Deals from Stampin! Up! as well.  There are many opportunities for you to attend classes at my house, and several specials, as well.

SATURDAY MORNING, August 9th, Blendabilites Class #2, $35 Fee for 2 sets of Blendabilites markers and the Color Lifter Pen.  Please contact me right away if you would like to attend.  I have ONE spot that is not spoken for at this time. You will create 4 cards using the Stmpin’ Blendabilities Markers.

Thursday, August 14th is the first night of my new Stamper’s Ten Club Class!  We will meet and draw names for the month that you will get to be the Hostess.  Here are the details for my Club Class.

STAMPER’S TEN CLUB CLASS

The Stamper’s Ten Club Class meets once a month at my house.  We do not always meet on the same day of the week.  It is totally random each month, but you always know one month ahead so you can plan accordingly.  We have 8-10 members in each of my clubs.  There might be 2 clubs this year, just as we have had in the past, but it just depends on how many we have that want to join.   We will do the SAME projects at both club classes.  We will have an organizational meeting on Thursday, August 14th at 6:30 p.m. and you will receive the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog and Holiday Catalog for FREE (if you have not already gotten them from me).   We will put everyone’s name in a drawing, and we will randomly choose names so you can pick one of the next 10 months (Sept. 2014 – June 2015) to be the hostess.  When it is YOUR MONTH to be the hostess, you will need to provide snacks and drinks for the group.  I will clean the house, and provide all the crafty stuff……..you just show up!  Everyone in the group is required to spend at least $15 each month.  If you can’t  make the class, you must e-mail me your order and arrange payment no later than the day of the class.   Although $15 is all that is required, you can earn more hostess benefits by collecting outside orders.  In addition, many of the club participants regularly order more than $15 because they always find something they can’t live without.  So, you get free merchandise, free hostess sets, and free project ideas from me.  All of the classes will include patterns, handouts, and opportunities to try NEW things that you will really love!  You also get fun time with other ladies who love to create — and YUMMY FOOD!   What could be better???

This is a great opportunity to replace your cardstock supply, order stamp pads or re-inkers that you don’t have yet, or accumulate a little here and there during our Club Classes.

So what is keeping you from joining the club???  This is a very minimal commitment and you will thoroughly enjoy a little “Ladies Night Out” to craft and socialize.

Do you want to join???  Please e-mail me and I will go over any questions you might have.  Our first class is on THURSDAY, AUGUST 14th at 6:30 p.m.  Remember, we need groups of 8-10 to form the clubs……so let me know if you want to join in on the fun!  I believe that we will definitely have enough ladies to form one group, and potentially two groups.   We tend to fill up rather quickly, so don’t forget to call me or email me today!

We make things like tags, cards, framed items, and more!    At most classes, we make 3 projects with one of them being a 3 D project.   You will always receive full color photos, instructions, and dimensions for all projects.

Here are the new Weekly Deals introduced yesterday.  ORDER THEM HERE!

Five Sheet Wonder

NOTE:  My next class is on Thursday, May 15th.  (rescheduled from May 8th).

Please scroll down to see the details.  RSVP needed for this class.

Watercolor Wonder Notecards

I remembered this week that I never showed you the cards from my Club Class in April!  OOPS!  I was super excited to teach my club gals about LeeAnn Greff’s amazing template called Five Sheet Wonder.  Some of you may have done a “one sheet wonder” before, but I had not ever seen a FIVE sheet wonder.  I encourage you to visit LeeAnn’s blog for amazing and wonderful ideas, but also to check out her template for the Five Sheet Wonder.  The template allows you to easily create 10 cards, but we only put 5 of them together for my class.    How does it work?  You stamp ALL OVER one sheet of Whisper White Cardstock, and then cut it all up to create 10 cards.  Why is it called 5 sheet wonder?  Because LeAnn has you choose 4 other solid cardstocks (making 5 total sheets) and follow the templates to cut those up, too.  VOILA!  Lots of pieces and lots of fun to assemble!

“You’re Lovely” Sympathy Card

I know that title doesn’t sound quite right….kinda like an Oxymoron or something like that!  Sorry — but that really is what this card is!  It’s a gorgeous Sympathy Card using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set “You’re Lovely”.

I found a card very similar to this on Pinterest, and I thought it was a beautiful display of new products and “old”.  I wanted to use the new Hardwood stamp set that has quickly become very popular.  I colored the flowers with a Blender Pen and a Marina Mist Stamp Pad.  This is still my favorite way to color!

Stamp Club Projects

Tonight was such a fun night!  I had my Stampin’ Up! Club ladies over at the house for our first meeting of the new year.  We hadn’t met since June, and it was long overdue!  It was so fun talking to everyone about stampin’, new grandbabies, weddings, and everything in between!  I’m so thankful for all the ladies in my life………but my stampin’ ladies really take the cake!

First, this card uses the Triple Time Stamping that I’ve been seeing all over the internet.  I love it!  I used Blooming with Kindness to create this version in Basic Gray and Primrose Petals.

 

The second card combined several sets and the focal point is the gorgeous Apothecary Accents Framelits.

Stamp sets used:  Papillon Potpourri, Trust God, Flowering Florets.

The last card was designed to showcase our new Core’dinations Cardstock in Cherry Cobbler.  This paper is very unique with an inner core that is slightly lighter in colorb to create a monochromatic look.  When it is embossed and sanded, you get this fantastic look!  This paper is also smooth on one side, textured on the other, and perhaps the coolest thing Stampin’ Up! has created in a long time — if you ask me 😉

This cardstock also comes in Gumball Green and Early Espresso.  I had a ton of fun playing with this cardstock, and you will too!

Retired Stamp Pads for Sale

Stampin’ Up! has recently introduced their new Firm Foam Stamp Pads.  Click on the link to see all about them! They are amazing and wonderful!  So amazing and wonderful that I am replacing my retired style pads as fast as I can possibly work it into the budget.  I’ve already purchased the Neutrals and the Brights!  Stampin’ Up! offered some extra incentives at convention (another PERK of being a demonstrator) and we were able to get the Brights at a discount.  That’s how much Stampin’ Up! believes in getting products out there at an affordable cost!  Although I’d love to sell you the NEW PADS……..some of you might enjoy having some of the “old pads” at a greatly reduced rate.  And if you are one of those people, then today is your lucky day 🙂

Here are the Retired Stamp Pads that I am getting rid of.  Make note that SOME of the are colors that we no longer sell, and it might be more difficult to find the re-inkers for them.  My list is divided into two parts — those that I have NO re-inkers for and those that I do.  Your stamp pads will last a VERY long time if you purchase the pads that come with re-inkers.  Please message me with any questions.  I will gladly ship them, but there will be an additional fee depending on how many you would like to purchase.  I will be listing these on my Etsy shop sometime soon, so let me know if you want them, and save me the hassle 🙂
