Stampin' Up for KIDS!

This month is Stampin' Up!'s Kid's Campaign. To get into the spirit, my friend Jill and I are doing a Girly Girl Craft Camp. Today was our first of 2 days, and although the time seemed to fly, the projects took a little longer than expected, which is better than flying through all the projects! Anyway, we made name tags, a paperbag album and a purse using the Shaving Cream technique. The girls went WILD for the shaving cream and ink! They also loved all the hidden pockets in their albums. We are very tired, but looking forward to our day of crafting tomorrow! All projects use the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' kit, and we also used several different stamps sents... all, sadly, retired! Tomorrow, I will try to get some of the girls in action!

Card Portfolio Workshop

Hello Stampers!!

My friend Toni and I will be doing a Card Portfolio workshop together on Thursday, August 20th, at 6:30. This portfolio uses the Stampin’ Up! Bella Blue paper and the Simple Friendship stamp set. You will make a card sized portfolio and 4 cards to go inside it. This is fun as a gift for someone else, or a gift to yourself! When you are done with the cards, the clear pages can also hold pictures. We will also give you the instructions so you can make this again for more people (great teacher gift)!

The cost of the class is $20.00. You will need at least an hour and a half to complete the set, so make it a crafty girls night out, and join us for fun and snacks! Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested. Please RSVP as soon as possible so we can have enough supplies ready for everyone. This class is best for adults only.

See this post for another sample.

If you are interested in this class and can’t make it on that date please let us know. We will most likely teach it again on another date. This class is also available to purchase as a kit.

Over a month!

Well, I am not off to a good start! It has been over a month since I last posted! We have had lots of cousins in town, so we have been running all over the place. This last week we finally slowed down and now the kids are sick. Oh well!
Anyway, my upline, and good friend, Toni and I are going to do a workshop class in August making a cute card portfolio using a template and planner made by Andrea Walford of Sunny Stampin'. We changed the colors a bit but still used the same papers and design. The portfolio has 4 clear envelopes inside and holds 4 cards. It also holds 4 envelopes. It is a very cute set! Here is a little preview of the set, and please let us know if you would like to come in the 2nd half of August to make one!

Good morning!

It looks like our June gloom may be finally letting up a wee bit! It has be cold, windy, drizzly here in our usual sunny cal for too long! I've been feeling sooo blue from the weather! We had sun all day yesterday and a little the day before that and I am already feeling better!

Anyway, Stampin' Up!'s year is coming to a close, which means I HAVE THE NEW CATALOG! It is VERY pretty. Lots of neat ideas and some very pretty designer papers. They have added some really neat ideas in the Specialty Paper section too. I placed another sneak peek order today and I am getting really excited for my catalog release party which I will announce the date of next week. We will be using the new colors and stamps...

But, let me leave you with one of the Thank You cards we made at our workshop last week. Cute and simple! Love the stamp, it is very versatile... see my other card made with the same stamp here! Again these ideas were supplied by Mercedes Weber.

New Stampin' up! Catalog!

The new Stampin' Up Catalog is coming out this July 1st. I am awaiting my sneak peek copy... If you are interested in seeing which stamps are leaving this June 30, Please check out the Last Chance (formerly Retiring) list.

Also, my class for the 3 thank you cards is this Friday! Let me know if you would like to come! My hubby is off in Virginia, so of course it feels like the house if falling down around my ears. If people come to the workshop of Friday, all they may find is a pile of rubble. Off too clean my stamping stuff off the table so we can eat breakfast tomorrow!
