Lovely As a Tree

Posted by on Jun 20, 2017 in Big Shot, Birthday, Other

This lovely card, created by BJ Garner, is truly a classic in more ways than one!  Lovely as a Tree is the oldest stamp still current that is still available for purchase.  In addition, don’t you love the classic car from Guy Greetings?  Although the Top Note Die is no longer available for purchase, you may have it or another die that would work perfectly to cut out a window sheet for added detail! When stamping on window sheets, because they are non-porous, you need to use a permanent ink like our Black Archival to stamp your images. This card could be used for Father’s Day, which we celebrated last week, or a birthday card for your Dad, or you could use a different stamp to say what you’d like to say…Brother, Uncle, Friend. Thanks for visiting today.  Only four nights left to our Mini Retreat!  Attendees will have an absolutely amazing time.  Watch for posts next week so see the fun and great projects created at this...

Colorful Seasons!

Posted by on Jun 19, 2017 in Big Shot, Birthday, Other

Today’s share, created by Shannon Gates, features the Colorful Seasons stamp set, a photopolymer set with 24 images–enough to cover all four seasons, including 6 sentiments, and is complimented by the coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  When you purchase this Bundle, you save 10%. I have had a chance to play with this bundle myself and I love all the options it offers!  Stampers attending the Mini Retreat on Saturday will make an amazing project using this bundle.  I will post all the Retreat projects next week and thereafter.

Yesterday was a very happy day for me!  I received my Travel Package for the Stampin’ Up Incentive Trip to Phuket, Thailand! The adorable little elephants are our luggage tags–so cute!  Plus an itinerary, a nice wallet and name tags!  Don’t you love the ribbon tied around the wallet?  It’s lovely–so soft and easy to work with! Thanks for visiting today!  Have a great week...

Crafting Forever!

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Birthday, Other, Thanks

Crafting Forever is the name of the stamp set Carolanne used to create this lovely card for our June HandiCrafters card swap!  I love all the texture and bling on this card–to see it in person is even better than the picture!  The nature of this card is extremely versatile and could be used for numerous occasions:  thinking of you, thank you, birthday, congratulations…you decide the occasion. As the count down to my Customer Mini Retreat draws near, and preparations are in full swing, I decided to share swap cards as I want to keep the retreat projects a surprise for attendees. Thanks for visiting today.  I’ll be back tomorrow with another swap card and another great...

Happy Anniversary

Posted by on Jun 6, 2017 in Wedding/Anniversary

An Anniversary is a great occasion to Celebrate!  Today’s card uses the NEW Oh My Stars Embossing folder!  Don’t you love it?  The background on this card was created on Watercolor Paper and will be the technique I’ll be sharing with stampers on my next Technique Class, later this week.  I had so much fun playing with color combinations and more, I’m really excited about this class. You may have noticed my lack of posts lately!  The new catalogue, new products, classes, Team gathering and two Mini Retreats this month,  for Demonstrators and Customers are consuming my time!  Carolanne and I are preparing projects with new products, prizes and pillow gifts and more! There are just a few spots left for the Customer Mini on June 24 so if you’d like a day to be pampered, this is the perfect opportunity.  If you need more information, please contact me by telephone, e-mail or text. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...
