Sending a Kiss

Not much to chatter on about today. I needed a card to send to my niece, just because.  I used the Hexagon Embossing Folder on Pool Party Cardstock and then again on 1 inch strips of More Amore Speciality Designer Series Paper that I then snipped out the hexagons and made a diagonal stripe.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs, an awesome set that I need to use more.

New Video from Stampin' Up!

This one is so funny, made me think of my favorite TV show, Big Bang Theory.  I could just see Sheldon or maybe Raj making a card like this.  Don't forget it's my favorite time of year, Sale A Bration time, for every $50 you spend on Stampin' Up! merchandise you get a free exclusive Sale A Bration set.

Andy Warhol Dinosaurs

I have a nephew with a birthday coming soon and even though he is well on his way to being 30 years old, he still loves dinosaurs.  In fact I bought this set with him in mind.  I decided to channel Andy Warhol and stamp part of the dinos in Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Midnight Muse.  Punched out coordinating circles and assembled.  The saying is from my favorite quirky sentiment set, Sassy Salutations and I used an Apothecary Accents Framelit to die cut the frame.  Stamp first, die cut second makes it so much easier to get the placement as perfect as you want.  The background paper is from the Sale A Bration Designer Series Paper, Sycamore Street, I got that free with a $50 order.  I LOVE FREE STUFF!!!

More news from Leadership

I wasn't lucky enough to attend Leadership in sunny Orlando this year but have several demo friends who did.  Here is what I have learned from them that we have to look forward to learning more about, probably come Monday.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Stampin’ Up! in 2013 they will release a set each month.  These will have 4 stamps from retired sets and one new stamp.  They will cost $14.95, and for each one you purchase one, you will get a sticker.   When you purchase 6 of the Best of SU! sets  you’ll get to pick a free $14.95 set.  You will keep track and redeem by placing your stickers on a special card. 
The first set is “Best of Birthdays.”  
I told you about the Paper Pumpkin subscriptions in yesterdays post, I can't wait to get the Try It Kit and see what they are all about.  The Try It Kit will be available thru me so contact me if you want to try one out too.  Kaylee really wants to get that surprise in her mailbox each month and I am sure plenty of others would love this too.  How about gifting someone you love and get them hooked   interested in stampin' like us!
And some other news that will be great for Hostesses, we’ll be able to add online orders to workshops soon.  That means if you have a workshop here, but your best friend lives in Kalamazoo, she can order online and it will count toward your workshop.  How handy is that?   We will  even be able to order MDS print products and add them to the workshops too.  
Great news all around, makes me even more excited to be going to Convention this July.  If you want a great part time job or a way to get you SU! stuff at a discount and the opportunity to go to Convention this summer this is the best time to join my team, the Log Cabin Stampers.  During SAB you can join for $99 and get to pick $125 in merchandise BUT because of the 25th Anniversary of SU! you get to pick an ADDITIONAL 25%  in merchandise.  So for $99 you pick $156.50 in SU! goodies delivered right to your door.  Contact me today and we'll talk about your new adventures in stampin'

Happy Birthday Meg.

Tomorrow is my niece in law's birthday and I can not find the card I started for her anywhere.  Anyone who knows me should not be surprised by that.  So I made another this morning so I could run it down to the post office pronto.

It uses the stamp set Pattered Party which is a new set for me.  Has a lot of great possibilities, young and old, boy or girl, really versatile.

I am missing out on Leadership in Orlando

Good thing the sun was shining today or I would really be sad I am missing out on being at Leadership this week in Orlando.  Look what was outside of the Orlando Convention Center.

I did get to be in a SWAP so I will be getting 20 awesome samples to share with my customers so I guess I should count my blessings, right?  I took a quick photo of the SWAPS before I sent them off in the mail.  It's a really cruddy photo but I think you will get the idea.
Enjoy your day where ever you are and if you are in Orlando enjoying Leadership bring me a present, just kidding.

Last Chance for Gingerbread Guys

Just one last card from the Holiday Catalog, it's not too late to order this set and the matching framelits today or tomorrow.  Use my Online Store to get yours.  I made this card using a stamp set from year's past Sale A Bration set for the sentiment and just used a marker to highlight the word Yummy, neat trick, right?
