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.

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!

The sun is finally out and burning off this blasted marine layer. It has changed into a sauna outside! At least the sun is out though, I was starting to have a low grade bad attitude from all the cloudy weather and misting. June gloom is just so GLOOMY!
Anyway, I am having another workshop at my house this Friday, June 5th. It will be from 9:30-11:30. We will make 3 thank you cards using Rasperry Tart Designer Paper and the Elegant Thank You stamp from the Under $10 section of the Stampin Up Catalog. These are great stamps and we are going to use the one stamp 3 different ways. This original idea came from another SU! Consultant, Mercedes Weber. We will also be working with a few different punches so you can see how they can be layered in different ways to make embellishments.
This class is $6 for the 3 cards (we may make a bonus one if I can get it together in time). BUT!!! if you spend $20 on a catalog order, you will get your 3 cards for FREE! Now since this is the beginning of summer, I am going to be running some summer specials for my customers. And in September, I will be giving away a $25 gift Certificate for Stamping up Merchandise! I will have more info on how to get in the running for that free money on Friday! Hope you can make it and please let me know so that I can have materials ready for you!
Lastly, the Stampin' Up year is coming to an end and it is almost time to release the new catalog. That means some favorites will be leaving us! I will have the link to the Last Chance list as soon as I figure out how! This is also the last month to order paper and ink in the 2008-09 In Colors. So, if you love Baja Breeze, Red Riding Hood, Pirourette Pink, Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss, now is the time to STOCK UP! Don't forget to get your re-inkers for your ink pads especially if you have any of these colors. Anyway, hope to see you Friday!
