Thinking of you - card

I'm trying to get a box started of cards at the ready.  Here is one I made to be a sympathy card (thank you to the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog for the layout design)...

Stamp sets - Awash with Flowers, Flower Fest
Ink - Rose Red, Daffodil Delight
Card Stock - Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Whisper White
Stampin' Dimensionals

To finish the card, I chose to add a piece to the back rather than attach the front to a full folded card.

Stamp sets - God's Blessings
Ink - Rose Red
Card Stock - Rose Red, Whisper White

I added a message using the Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker.

Have a blessed day!

Taking a break... Christmas in July!

I just realized now was a good moment to take a quick break and check-in, I've been wanting to - just busy!

Are you all enjoying your summer?  I heard some moms today say they were ready for school - they'd sleep later since boys won't be at 6:30am football practice.  We start 4 weeks from today - wow, it's gone by fast.

I hope you have had a chance to take a look at the Summer Mini Catalog and gone on-line to view the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog.  Now is a great time to start thinking about future projects - Autumn Harvest themes, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and everyone's favorite - Christmas.  In fact, if you are interested in a good deal for your handcrafted Christmas, check out the special running through July 31st... Join Stampin' Up! with a Limited Time $99 Starter Kit and receive a Christmas Keepsake Project Kit.

The kit is in addition to the traditional demonstrator benefits...

  • A 20 percent product discount!
  • A free monthly issue of Stampin' Success, Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator-only magazine!
  • Sneak peeks at brand-new products!
  • Invitations to exclusive Stampin' Up! events!
  • Regular get-togethers to stamp!
  • Free access to a community of 30,000+ crafters/stampers and creative artists, as well as 160,000+ project samples!

I'm going to host a catalog and project preview on Thursday, July 28.  Please reply if you think you'll come.  I'll have a Make & Take ready for you to create.


If you're not able to attend, check out the items on-line and start collecting your project supplies a little at a time.  Ordering now is a good way to spread out the cost and time (get started early, instead of being time crunched later)!  And... to help with that, since you may be placing smaller orders, I'm offering FREE shipping on orders placed by July 31st!

Have a great summer day!

2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog

Welcome to July everyone!  July is a special time for me - two special birthdays, my oldest child's birthday and our country's birthday!

Another reason July is special to a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog has arrived.  Click the link to check it out on-line.  Please contact me to schedule a workshop, catalog party, etc.  I also have openings for Strength & Hope project days and could design an event around your special moments.

Have a blessed July!
