My Awesome Grab Bag Gift

Hi There Friends!

I found this post in my dashboard as one that I never “published”… it’s been sitting here in draft status for a couple weeks. I’m so sorry, I meant to share all these awesome tags and ornaments with you, in case you wanted to make any for Christmas. Well, there’s always next year, right? I don’t know about you, but I’m vowing to make my own cards in the summer before it gets too hectic in the fall. December is my most stressful month for me, and it’s no surprise that my body crashed for a couple days… I think I’m finally recovered. So, without further ado…. here is my original post from 12/8 that never made it.

Look at these awesome ornaments and tags!! Can you believe I was lucky enough to win these at our Whirlwind Stampers Christmas Party?

Judy Battiste, one of my talented downline, made these little cuties!! Which one is your favorite? (I know it’s hard to pick just one!!) Leave me a comment- I’d love to know your favorite.

Judy stamped with stazon ink onto the ornaments (for the two Santa ornaments), the pine and silver star are heat embossed. She used blendabilities to color them in carefully, making sure she didn’t touch the stazon ink. Just gorgeous!

 

All of these awesome tags were on a key ring on a card frame- which I can’t wait to use. Here are the tags individually:

I loved winning this set of awesome handmade goodies! I know Judy put hours of time and work into this gift, and I really appreciate it.

We have such fun at our Stampin’ Up! Christmas parties, it’s so fun to get together and share our creativity.

Well that’s it for now, thanks for stopping by to visit today!

Holiday Catalog Carry Over items….

Hi Friends- I’m getting lots of questions asking what items are carrying over from the Holiday Catalog. Stampin’ Up! did something really nice this year, they published the items that are carrying over right in the back of the new Occasions Catalog! While I can’t post the catalog until January 6th, I can let you know what IS going to be available:

Let me know if you need your own copy of our 2015 Occasions mini Catalog and Sale-a-bration mini catalog. My order just arrived and I’m happy to get them out to all my customers.

Also- if you are free this afternoon, swing by and see me at my last craft fair/vendor fair today from 1:30-4:30 pm at Judson Meadows Assistive Living Facility, located at 39 Swaggertown Road, Scotia, NY 12302 (this is close to the Rt. 50 end). There will be over 10 other vendors/crafters there with their goods. I hope you can make it! I have some of Santa’s magic keys available- a must have for every child’s home who has ever asked “but we don’t have a chimney, how does Santa get inside?” there is a cute poem and punch art Santa suit.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Happy Friday!

One Stop Holiday Shopping – Saratoga Springs (Sunday 11/30)

snow

Hi Friends!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! I must admit, I am still tired from cooking, cleaning, playing in the snow with the kids, and having the family over yesterday. But I love the good food, family togetherness and memories we make. My poor niece couldn’t eat anything more than some Bob Evans mac and cheese and applesauce, 8 days out from her tonsils/adenoids surgery and she is still hurting, poor baby. And my sister’s first outing since her surgery 9 days ago, hard to get comfortable… BUT we gave thanks and praise for their successful surgeries and now pray for their continued healing.

I wanted to remind you that I am going to be at a HUGE Craft/Vendor Fair this Sunday November 30th at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga Springs… we are open 11 am to 2 pm and there are goodie bags for the first 50 people through the doors. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make anything for the goodie bags, but I have coupons I will be giving out to the first 50 people who visit me at my booth and of course a door prize for signing up for my newsletters/email list.

Many Thanks!!

trinity booth

 

I counted over 25 of my wonderful customers, friends and family who came out to see me this weekend. The Craft Fair at Trinity Presbyterian was a great hit! I was next to Sam’s Jam’s and enjoyed her yummy treats, there were some unique hand made gifts and everyone had a great time. Thank you for those who came out!

 

I had my new handy cart with a bin full of retired stamps. I had been going through my retired stamps last week looking for a “bucket” stamp for a friend, and couldn’t find it, and it gave me the idea to sell these retired items at my craft fairs.

My best sellers were: Penguin, Rudolf and Santa treat boxes, Chap Stick holders, Santa’s Magic Key, cardinal candles, dry erase boards, and retired stamps.

Yesterday I was Rexford Firehouse again, wowza, it was huge- so many talented people.

My best sellers were: Rudolf, Santa and Penguin treat boxes (sold out by 1:30 pm), mini purses (full of Hershey’s kisses), Santa’s Magic Key, my handmade cards were a hit (I whipped up 24 cards on Saturday night so I was sure to have Thanksgiving and Christmas cards), and my mini coffee cups. (I made these up Saturday night too).

Praying for them and their surgeons for success, healing, comfort from pain, and that recovery goes well. Thank you. I cancelled my classes/events this week so I can help take care of my sister’s kids. Love my family, so glad we are so close.

Look What We Made…

I hope you all had a very nice Veteran’s Day, did you thank a vet?

I was so happy to be able to organize another Christmas Card Stamp Camp for my team and customers. I was a little surprised with how many people didn’t have that day off from work, so although some of my team and customers couldn’t attend, those that did had a great time.

Here’s the line of up cards that we made and some other fun photos to show you:

camp1

 

This was a super cute and fun card, knowing some children were coming, I thought a Santa card was appropriate! This card was inspired by Ronda W,  my business coach, I saw this in one of her emails and knew I wanted to case it.

camp2

I thought that the Paper Pumpkin kit from last November would be an awesome addition, and would show off the high quality card stock and projects. The “NOEL” card was made as is (there are directions in each kit with photos and all the steps broken down for you). I just cut the card base in half to get double the cards, came up with the banner framelit option using “Mingle All the Way” stamp set with the Smoky Slate ink pad. Everyone loved the star garland, and according to Wendy, who made them last year herself, they are not that difficult. I am planning to make some this year.

camp7

camp3

 

My third card for Stamp Camp yesterday was a more involved card, coloring with blendabilities with our new Photopolymer stamp set called Gentle Peace. Each card came out unique and stampers used many variations of color to make their cards, so pretty.

 

Jamie came up with this awesome card design and stampers made one in each color. Love the snowflake embellishments!

 

camp5 camp6

Last but certainly not least was this awesome sparkly iridescent card by Wendy:

camp4

We enjoyed some yummy cookies while we stamped the afternoon away. It was so great to see everyone, and I thank all those who came and stamped with us.

I posted some other photos on my facebook page, if you want to check them out, and if you would “like” my page, I would appreciate it very much. When I hit 500 likes I am doing a facebook giveaway of a “Good Greetings” hostess stamp set from October.
