It's time to bring workshops back!
 
Everyone is so busy these days...but if we set aside maybe one day a month to gather with friends and craft together, what great things it does for the mind, body and soul!
 
When was the last time you had some friends over for some fun time?
 
Long overdue?
 
Well, June is the month to do it...the kiddos will be out of school soon and maybe you'll be looking for some adult time to be creative...and JUNE is the month to do so...and Stampin' Up! is giving away money to spend.....We are increasing our Stampin' Rewards Program for the month of June!
 
You will have an additional $35 to spend with a qualifying workshop!  Woo Hoo!

Wait until you see all the fun new products coming...you are going to want to book two events...whether it be a traditional workshop, specific class or event or how about an online Facebook party?  What do you have to do?  Well, just some light refreshments....and I do the rest!
 
Attend my event on Saturday, 6/3/17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and pick up your new catalog and book an upcoming class while you are here....and create a fun project and see a lot of new samples along with some shopping at 50% off prices of my retired products!

Cool Treats Meet Wonderful Washi

Ice Cream and Birthdays
 
Ice Cream and Birthdays are like Peanut Butter & Jelly...they both go together....
 
As does this suite - and one of my favorites....
 
This was a  You Tube video which I did focusing on Wonderful Washi....aka washi tape.
 
I love all the versatility Washi Tape has to offer in my stamping projects. 
 
 
 
For this card, I used the Washi Tape on the card front as a focus point...
and what fun it makes this card.

 
Here is another card using the same stamp set suite....I used Whisper White cardstock and cut out an oval using our Oval Dies and the Big Shot.  I then had another scrap of cardstock and covered it with Washi Tape and assembled the card with the Washi Piece of CS underneath it.

 
How fun is this?

 
I took it one stamp further and adhered the Washi Tape to the back flap outside of the envelope...I'm not sure if the postal service would enjoy this...but it's perfect if you are hand delivering a card.

This Little Piggie Loves You


Some new fun stamp sets and products will soon be here!  I'm sure you cannot wait to see the new catalog and all the fun goodies....
 
As a demonstrator, we are able to place a preorder for some of the new products....while this was not one of the stamp sets available for prepurchase it was an all attendee give away at a sponsored Stampin' Up! Event, On Stage in April....
 
When I saw this stamp set, I knew it was one I needed to have and was going to be a favorite of mine!  This stamp set is called This Little Piggie....and I am in love.....yes...with a pig!  :-)


 
Another great reason of being a demonstrator, not only for the discount, the savings and so many more business reasons, it's the meeting of new friends and new stampers....one thing I never worried about attending an event...even if I traveled alone...all of us under one roof have the same thing in common...stamping....and it was never difficult to meet new friends because of the love of stamping that we all share.....sharing...and caring.....

 
This is a card which I created for an upcoming swap....and another reason to be involved with Stampin' Up!.....and I hope those that receive it enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

 
PS...the embossed image on the background is also a new upcoming product :-)
 
If you currently do not have a demonstrator and would like a copy of our new upcoming catalog, please let me know so I can send a copy to you!
 
 
Have a SUper Stampin' Day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!

Borderline Buddies - Letting go....

 
Happy Wednesday and Borderline Buddies Day!
 
Leanna and I are continuing with our retirement product showcase....
 
Let's see what Leanna has to share this week:
 
 
 
Now, my turn....
 
I am going to surely miss this stamp set...It's a set of only one but it's perfect to send some well wishes to someone that needs a little boost who is sick. 
 
 
This card was created by the technique, fussy cutting and paper piecing in which you stamp the image onto your cardstock and then stamp onto a colored piece of cardstock and cut out and adhered to the image on your base card. 

 
The heart was embellished by using the same technique with paper piecing and then using our Fine Tip Glue Pen over the top and allow it to dry...this creates an acrylic type embellishment. 

 
I used our Stampin' Marker to write over the wording. 

 
Get Well Soup Wood-Mount Stamp Set
 
Get Well Soup Wood-Mount Stamp Set 138768
Price: $13.00
Soup is great for what ails you, but it’s hard to send. Instead, stamp a card with a get-well message written in a bowl of steaming soup. It won’t spill or get cold, and it will help show your concern.

Our classic wood-mount rubber stamps
* Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.
* Are precut so you don't have to trim.
* Come with farmed-maple wood blocks—you don't need to buy blocks separately.
* Permanently mount on the blocks so they're ready to go when you are.
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.

Quantity: 1 rubber stamp.

What's Inside Your Montly Box?

 

WHAT'S INSIDE YOUR MONTHLY BOX?

With Paper Pumpkin, you'll save time and money while you build a collection of crafting supplies. Every month you'll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won't repeat a color in a 12-month period). In no time at all, you'll have a variety of stamps and ink to use on other projects. In addition, your first kit includes a free clear stamping block that you'll use every month.
 
Here are more alternative ideas from this month's May, 2017 Paper Pumpkin subscription.
 
 
 
Just by adding a few extra embellishments which you already own
can spruce up your projects just a sprinkle.....
 
 
These flowers are included in the kit...just added a bit of color
 by sponging them with the ink pad provided in the kit.

 
Enjoy what you see?
