Welcome Back

I was so very excited to get back to having my friends over for Stamping Club on Friday. We had a great summer off but it was really good to see everyone again!! That is one of the things that is wonderful about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator....the friendships that develop and the laughter shared, it's the best.

I wanted to share with you a couple of the cards that we made. All of the cards had a fall theme and used some of the new products in the 2011 Holiday Mini Catalog.

This first card inspiration came from Connie Babbert, a fellow SU Demonstrator. It uses one of the new In-colors Pool Party cardstock for an accent that works really well with the More Mustard cardstock base. The sentiment comes from the Hand Penned Holidays stamp set (item #124312). I added a piece of 3/8 inch Ruffled Ribbon in Pool Party (item #122975) These ribbons are just beautiful and come in 5 different colors. I also used pieces of the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper (item # 124003) that coordinates with all of the colors in the card...The Flower was made in More Mustard using the Blossom Party Originals Die from the Big shot collection...Kind of looks like a Sun Flower doesn't it..

The second card inspiration came from Tammy Fite, another talented SU demonstrator. On this card I demonstrated a masking technique - where we sponged Cajun Craze, Baja Breeze and Old Olive on a piece of Naturals white cardstock. This was layered on a piece of Early Espresso cardstock used as the base. The leaf is from the new Gently Falling stampset (item # 123804) I really think I'm gonna like this stampset. It is a two step stamp which gives a lot of dimension to your image. Love it!! I also used the Tiny Tags (item # 118592) for the sentiment and punched it out with the Jewelry Tag punch (item #117190) Cute Huh!!

SU You Tube Video's

Morning All
Hope you're all settling into your Fall routines and planning for the upcoming Holiday's. Can you believe it's only 108 days until Christmas...whew!!

Well while you're planning your projects and cards do you ever think if I could just see a demonstration on this or that I could figure out how to do too I'm a visual me and I can do it...well most times LOL. Anyway, Stampin' Up! has a great library of videos that run the gambit from how to use a certain punch to demonstrations of products that we carry. The best part is they are NOT just for demonstrators but customers just like you can also go there and see...How do they do that.

Check out this site and you'll find a lot of great information regarding our products.

If after checking this out you see something you would like a closer demonstration just give me a call and I'll be happy to help you out.

Up Coming Wreath Class

Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day Weekend and that the storms coming through miss you and yours....I will be playing with the Grandkids tomorrow so I'm hoping for some decent weather to play outside.

I love the fall weather...crisp and clean and look forward to the beautiful colors of the mums and leaves as they change. In keeping with that I will be hosting a Fall Wreath class on Friday September 23rd at 7:00 pm. The cost is $20.00 and will include everything you need to make the wreath. I have a limited amount of space available for this class so be sure to RSVP as soon as possible to ensure your spot.

Here is a close up of the flowers that decorate the wreath. I thought they kind of looked mums and love the colors. Not only will you leave the class with this beautiful fall decoration but you will learn how to make these great flowers for your projects at home.

Don't forget to check out my calendar for other classes that I will be hosting in the near future and remember to RSVP for the wreath class by 9/16.

Happy September

If you're like me you're wondering why exactly did summer go's time for the kids to go back to school, fall camping (wonderful) and of course it's time for the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. (9/1/2011 – 1/3/2012) This mini has all of the wonderful holiday images that you have come to expect from SU to help you get ready for the upcoming holidays...Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas.

For those of you that are score challenged there is a new tool called "simply Scored." Scoring has never been easier or more fun with our exclusively-designed scoring too. It helps make scored designs or scoring 3D projects so fast and easy!! The neat thing about this tool is that there are markers you place along the top of the ruler so you can just blast through scoring a lot of card stock. This tool is perfect for helping to make your holiday cards or invitations.

Of course there are lots of new stamp sets and plenty of great looking designer papers for you to choose from and some great new accessories like Stitched Felt accents and Mini Jingle Bells. Click on the image of the Holiday Mini Catalog on the side of my blog to view it online or call me if you would like me to send one to you.

I can't wait to show you some of the new products....if you would like to set up a night out for you and your friends/family to do a little stamping please give me a call at 248-391-5978 to set up your workshop. There is a great new hostess program that I would love to share with you...

And, of course, this time of year is the perfect time to join my team as part of the Stampin' Up! family. Besides receiving a great discount on all of our products, you will enjoy being part of a business that lets you earn a little extra money,set your own hours, create lasting friendships and as always allow you to have a lot of fun!! Ask me how you can join my team.

I will be posting my upcoming fall classes so check back soon!!
