New Catalogue Open House

Come and see the new Fall/Winter Catalogue. I have seen a couple of sneak peaks and you won't want to miss out! You can purchase the catalogue for the special price of $8.00. You can create 2 free make n' takes and view some new product as well as see some samples made for the upcoming classes. You will also want to come so you can enter the special draws.

Friday August 22 6:00-9:00pm RSVP (not necessary, but appreciated)

Saturday August 23 1:00-3:00pm RSVP (not necessary, but appreciated)

Bring a friend and receive more ballots for the draws! If you RSVP, you will also receive an extra ballot for the draws.

See you there.

Coaster Samples

Above are two pictures of some coasters that I have been working on. There is a class coming up in September and I have been asked to run this class again before Christmas so probably it will be held again at the end of October or the start of November. These coasters are quick and easy to make and would be great as a Christmas gift. To see the class details, click here.



And the Winner is.....

Seeing Spots

This is a quick and simple birthday card using the Seeing Spots stamp set. It also uses the Hugs and Wishes greeting set. The colours used in this card are Almost Amethyst, Regal Rose, and Certainly Celery. I really like how the ink and paper all match together. This card probably took about 15 minutes to put together.
Stay tuned for more samples in the next couple of days.
Happy Stamping,
PS. Remember to check out the retiring stamp set and accessory list.

Simply Said

This card was made with one of my favourite stamp sets - Simply Said. This is a very simple but elegant thank you card using Pretty in Pink cardstock with Regal Rose and Certainly Celery as coordinating colours. I used the Stampin' Write Markers to colour in the small flowers and stems.

Some Sample Cards

This first card I made to announce the arrival of Gavin. I only did a cardfront using the retired Bundle of Joy stamp set on Bashful Blue cardstock. On the back of the announcement, I attached a picture of Gavin.

This second card uses one of the hostess sets called Time Well Spent. The card base is Certainly Celery and I used Whisper White on top of Basic Black. The cute images were coloured in with Stampin' Pastels.

New Product Line: Decor Elements

I am excited to share with you the news about Stampin' Up!'s new product line called Decor Elements available to you starting on July 1.

This line features exclusive vinyl images that can be used to decorate you walls, furniture, glassware, etc. The vinyl designs come in phrases, images, and there is also upper and lower case letters to customize your own words and phrases. The images are available in white or chocolate with select ones available in kraft.

As a demonstrator, I was able to preorder a variety of images which I will share with you when they come in. The best thing about the vinyl images are that they are super easy to put up and easy to remove when you get tired of them.

If you would like a brochure, send me an email or make a comment here and I will send one out to you. You can view the brochure on this page by clicking on the Decor Elements picture. As well, I am offering a preorder special to you of 10% off any images ordered by July 12.
