Stamp a Stack sign up by Friday!

Hi There Stamping Friends!

I just wanted to give you a quick update on my dad, he came home yesterday and is doing well at home. We feel so blessed for his excellent care he received at Ellis and Sunnyview and although he has a long road to recovery, we are so glad he is home now. Let the healing begin! Thank you for your prayers!

I’m slowly getting my schedule together and hope to have a newsletter out by the end of the week with all my classes and events. But wanted you to know that the sign up deadline for the next Stamp-a-Stack is this Friday:

While I think the little black cat is a perfect accent on this new window framelit, if you don’t like cats- you can leave this off your cards! I’m trying something new- just showing you a hint of the card- what do you think?

Witches Hat Class… (Black Cat not included)

Hi friends! I’m thrilled to show you our beautiful new witches hat kit by Stampin’ Up! This beautiful new kit is available on September 1 when our new holiday catalog launches. 

  
I have scheduled one class- Wednesday September 9 at 6:30 pm. Class registration fee is $35 and includes the kit, I will supply all the stamps and inks needed, and since you’ll have extra parts from your kit you can make two cards as well (if you want, or your extra leaves, acorns and card stock pieces could be turned into a cute Halloween or fall banner). Also, I will have healthy snacks and beverages. 

   

 To reserve your spot in this class I must receive your payment of $35 by August 31 as I am ordering these kits on September 1 when the catalog goes live. (Cash, check or credit card). 

You will need your scissors, bone folder, green glue, and dimensionals for this class. 

*Black cat not included (he sure is cute though, right?) 

  
I hope you have an awesome day thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Frozen Party

Good morning stamping friends! This morning I stumbled across this awesome blog post from one of Stampin’ Up!’s Artisian design members… I just wanted to share Krista’s blog with you – didn’t she do an amazing job with all the decorations, games, and treats? If you have a Disney themed birthday party or any party and need banners, decorations, and treats I’d be happy to help you out love to make a kids birthday a special day!

This is the work of Krista Frattin, she is a Canadian Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and I admire her work and thought you would enjoy it to! 

I’m going to be doing some stamping later today at a diva day I got invited to so hopefully I’ll have some new things to share with you soon. Thank you all for your well wishes for my dad he is doing tremendously well at rehab and getting stronger every day he may even come home next week! Thanks for your positive thoughts and prayers!

Creative Inking Blog Hop- Birthday Bash!

creative hop

 

Hi there stamping friends! I hope you are having a great week! This month our group is featuring Birthday cards for our blog hop! I can’t wait to see what the others are featuring this month.

As many of you know, the past 11 days have been anything but normal while my father has been recovering from his accident, hip surgery, some undetected heart attack(s), and life on oxygen plus helping my mother who has had some chronic health issues herself, plus being short-handed and working long hours at my work has made life very stressful lately… but- there’s good news-my dad is recovering nicely and is more and more “himself” every day. He was just moved to Sunnyview Rehabilitation Center on Tuesday and we are hoping his recovery goes smoothly while he is there. He has a vigorous schedule of OT and PT, and we are so very blessed and thankful for the amazing medical care he has received. Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers, our family appreciates them so much!

Since I have not been home much, nor have I done much stamping lately, I was a little stumped at where to begin when I was preparing for this blog hop, so I thought of one of my favorite new stamp sets … called “Build a Birthday” found on page 11 of new 2015-16 Annual Catalog (item #138646). This set has been so versatile, and really fun and easy to use since it is one of our amazing photopolymer style stamps. That means they are clear- you can see right through them- which makes stamping a breeze! The coordinating products used in these featured cards include the new 2015-17 In-Colors, the Cherry on Top Designer Washi Tape (item #138384) and Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (item 3 138443). Also, the new 1″ Dotted Lace Trim ribbon is a real show-stopper, it makes every card look more elegant, and is so easy to tie!

This last card has a fun belly-band that slides off so the gate-fold card closes easily.

Which card did you like the most? I’d love to hear from you- do you own this set yet? If not, it’s a must have- and easily a gender neutral stamp set- it’s nice to have this stamp set so you can make up a bunch of birthday cards to have on hand!

Beautiful Swap Cards (part 1)

Hi Stamping Friends!

I hope all of you are well, I haven’t had time to blog this past week as my dear old dad had a terrible fall, broke his hip, and then while in the hospital recovering from hip surgery, the doctors detected heart problems. We are so very thankful for the excellent care he has been receiving at Ellis Hospital, and we are hoping they move him over to Sunnyview Rehabilitation tomorrow morning (just waiting for insurance okay). Thank you to all my friends, downline, customers and family who have been praying for my dad, and my family, at this difficult time. It has also been hard on my mom, but luckily we all live very close and are able to juggle work, and hospital visits. Thank you for your positive thoughts and prayers- we could feel them all!

I have had to cancel lots of classes as I am totally zapped (energy wise) and don’t have time for prep and pulling it off. Plus some kits are still on back-order. For this week, I’m just doing my clubs (which were all ready before I headed to Rochester last weekend for my great-Aunt’s memorial service) and one class at the senior center. Otherwise, I’m postponing all other classes until probably September. I will send out emails to those impacted. Thank you for your understanding. Family first, right?

Since I haven’t created anything new in a while, I thought I would share some of the swaps I received at Convention… I hope you enjoy them!
