A Round Array



Today I am happy to share a project that really does throw off the vibe - breath of fresh air!  The colors are so comfortable and subtle that you can't help but love them!   The stamp set showcased here is called, "A Round Array".  I posted another sample using this set a couple of days ago - feel free to click here to see that one!
As for today's project, it was created by a member of my downline and used as one of our downline swaps.  The colrs are soft sky, primrose petals, and whisper white.  It is also the showcase for several of our fabulous punches!  They include:
  • 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch - Item #129404 - $12.95
  • 1-1/4" Circle Punch - Item #119861 - $15.95
  • 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch #119854 - $16.95

Play Ball!!



Have you been trying to create that perfect man card for that special guy in your life?  Well if he is a baseball fan...look no further!                   
Today's project is the creation of one of my incredible downline, Rachel B.!!!  Using her big shot (who can live without that?!!!) she created this work of art!  Using the 2-1/2" circle punch she created the baseball.  In addition she used our Stripes embossing folder to create the white background on top of the real red card.  She used her paper piercing tool and pad to create the faux stitching on the baseball and finished it up with a real red marker to make it look like it was really sewn!
 
The greeting comes from the stamp set called "Perfectly Penned".

Wildflower Meadow


Have you noticed these great new products in the new Idea Book & Catalog yet??  Were you wondering, "what would I do with that?"

Well, you are not alone!  lol   The first thing I heard from my club members this month was, "I had no interest in that stamp set or I had no idea how to use that stamp set...but now I have to have it!"

Did you know that is the greatest flattery in the world to me?!  When I hear a customer say they had no interest in a product until I showed them some great things to do with it it really makes my heart happy!  It makes me feel that all of the work that I do creating and designing items for you has been worthwhile!
The stamp set that I used to create these cards is called, "Wildflower Meadow".  This stamp set has an awesome coordinating emobssing folder too!  You can purchase the two items as a bundle and save 15%!!  Whoo hoo...love those bundling options!!  Don't you?!

Supplies:
  • Wildflower Meadow Stamp Set #129168 $13.95
  • Wildflower Meadow Emboss Folder #219376 - $7.95

I need your help!!! EVERYONE can be a winner!!

Okay my friends.... I don't ask often but I need you now!  As you may know, this is the last month of the Stampin' Up! fiscal year.  I am closing in on achieving my year's goal...but I NEED YOU ALL!  I need to have $2,000 more sales dollars before June 26th!  Every dollar will help!  Go through your inventory I am sure that you will find that you need some white and/or vanilla cardstock, dimensionals, glue dots, maybe even to replace a marker or two that are just worn out.  How about being able to get some FREE stuff?!!!


YOU Are a Winner!!!!!!

Have you seen the new Stampin' Up! catalog yet?  Are you so excited about all the new products?  Now is the time to gather your friends, show them the new catalog, and get their order! Or perhaps it is time to relax with your new catalog and make your own wish list!

WHY? I am having a $1000 Catalog Workshop to give everyone a chance to order, and to give EVERYONE a chance to participate in the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! HOSTESS!!
HOW? It's easy!  Show the catalog to people you know (or refer them to the on-line catalog)
WHAT? For every $1000 in orders, four participants will receive half price items, and six will receive $26 in hostess dollars!  
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO ME?  Normally, you need to purchase $150 in order to receive $25 in free hostess product.  By combining like this, EVERYONE is a winner!  Everyone will receive EITHER $26 in product OR one 1/2 price item!  WOW! This is so cool!  
SO, WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?Turn in your orders and payment (cash, check or credit card) anytime between today and  Wednesday, June 26. There are several ways you can turn your order in to me:

1.  Turn your order in online, at my website here.  After you place your order, you will be asked if you have a hostess code.  At that point you will need to put the hostess code in:  DX6X77VV.  After completing your order, send me an email and let me know what you want for hostess dollars ($26) or what you would like to have for your 1/2 price item, depending on which hostess benefit is drawn for your name. Once all 10 hostesses have ordered, I will draw the winners of either the 1/2 price item, or the hostess dollars and order them. As soon they arrive I will get them out to you! The biggest advantage in ordering this way is that your order will come straight to you! Also, you can order this way even if you are across the country, or not anywhere local to me!  Yippee! When you order online with the hostess code, your order is delivered to you!
 or
2.  Send your order to me in an email, and I will place it for you.  Be sure to indicate what your choices are for either the $26 hostess dollars or the 1/2 price offer.  Depending on what hostess benefit is drawn for your name, I will order your hostess benefits, and let you know when your order is ready for pick up at my home.  


balloons, and the winner is

EVERYONE WILL BE A WINNER!! (Prizes are based on ten $100 (or more!) orders. Prizes MAY increase or decrease depending on how many are participating. I will place the names of all participants in a hat and pick winners.

Drawing will be as follows for the $1,000. Catalog event:
*** 6 (six) people will receive $26.00 in free merchandise from the current Catalog. That's better than having a $150.00 workshop~ for only $100.00!!!
*** 4 (four) people will get a half price item of choice.
You could get a Big Shot for half price ... a $50.00 savings, or a set of Stampin' Write Markers at half price saving over $54.00, or a whole family of the new stamp pads for half price..saving $25.00, or the Big Shot Alphabet dies for a savings of $45!  WOW! OR, you could get any products in the catalog totalling $26!  Have you seen the hostess stamp sets?  I think they are the best yet!  And you can only get them with Hostess Dollars! 

I can get you order forms, etc. if you need these. Feel free to place your entire order on one order form, or do separate orders. Or just write it down and I will make out the order form for you. Or just email it to me! Shipping/Handling is 10% and tax is 6.35% of order amount + s&h. I can help you figure out the total if you would like .

Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to be a hostess without having to clean your house and make snacks, or without having to order $150 of product!  Sit back and look through the catalog and share it with friends. Orders will be picked up at my house, unless you ordered online. 
Call or email me



ASAP to let me know if you are planning on participating!
REMEMBER.. EVERYONE IS A WINNER!



Don't have the new catalog?  You can view it online here OR pick one up at my House  let me know and we can arrange for you to get one!
NOTE:  Once there are 10 $100 hostesses, we will get a new HOSTESS CODE for the online orders.  So, watch your inbox for that information.

June Blog Hop - BLOG CANDY!!




What does June mean to you?  Is it graduation, weddings, dads, or just fun in the sun?  Our blog hop this month is special because all of us are sharing what June means to each of us!  I am sure that you are bound to find some inspiration from us!

If you came here from  Lisa Tyndall's blog, then you are in the right place!  If you are a regular subscriber of my blog then be sure to follow all of the links to see the great projects we all have to share with you!

June means lots of things to me!  The first of which is getting out of school for the summer!  lol  Next in line would have to be all of the BBQ's that we host and/or attend!  Some of them are the result of a graduation, to honor the birth of a great friend or most of all to celebrate Father's Day!
Regardless of your reason for BBQ-ing, I think this double page scrapbook layout would showcase your photos perfectly!

Thank goodness for the fabulous punches that Stampin' Up! showcases in their catalogs!  If you look beyond the obvious the projects that you can create with them are endless!  Here is a close up of the BBQ grill that I created using the following punches!

  • Ornament Punch - grill lid
  • 1-3/4" Circle Punch - grill lid/bottom (cut in 1/2)
  • Word Window Punch - legs of grill
  • 1/2" circle and 3/4" circle punches for wheels
  • Silver brads to embellish the wheels and provide the hinge on the lid.


In addition to creating the grill with punches, I also used our punches (some retired) to create the grilling tools!

  1. Spatula - word window punch, small tag punch, horizontal slot punch
  2. "Spork" - word window punch, small oval, large oval
  3. Marinating brush - word window punch and a small scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock.
Cardstock Colors:
  • Whisper white - 12 x 12
  • Real Red - 2-1/2" x 12
  • Basic Black - photo mats - 4 x 5-1/4"
  • Alphabet - crushed curry cardstock

Well, what else does June mean to you?  Hop on over to my friend Sharon Armstrong's website to see what she has created for you!   Don't forget to also register to win this month's blog hop / blog candy prize.  How do you get the chance to win????  All you have to do is comment on my blog about the project for this month, and tell me what theme you think we should pick for next month (July).  That’s it!  Then go visit all the other blogs in the hop and do the same thing for a chance to win some of those fabulous prizes, too!  We’ll pick a random winner for each blog on July 1, so you have until June 30 to enter.  Oh and while you’re at it, hop on over to my Facebook page and show me some love!

Congrats to our grad!




Our one and only, Katelyn, graduated on May 11, 2013 from DEAN College in Massachusetts!  She completed her Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Dance and a minor in Business! We couldn't be more proud of her!  She graduated Magna Cum Laude too!  Although the weather didn't hold out too long for us, we did manage to get one picture (although not that great of one) of all of us together.  Pictured are my husband Paul, his mom, Katelyn, Paul's dad, and of course...me.
We waited until this past weekend to have a big bash in her honor!  I couldn't resist creating a special handmade card for her.  I created this project using our "Pop n Cuts" die for the Big Shot.  I also used our "Dressed Up" framelits!  I have to thank Rolanda (not sure of her last name -- so sorry) for the idea to spark this card!

I used our now retired Bravo Burgundy cardstock as well as some basic black and whisper white...as these are her school colors!

The saying on the front is from the stamp set called, "Feel Goods".  This set originally appeared in our seasonal catalog; however, it was such a hit that it is now in our new 2013-2014 Idea Book & Catalog!

Here is a view of the inside of the card!  When you open the cover, the inside "pops" up!  I created a cap and gown that are hanging on a mannequin form or sitting on a shelf.  I used one of our paper doilies cut in half to look like an area rug in front of the mannequin!

Using the stamp set called, "Pure Gumption" I was able to put some perfect greetings on the inside of the card too!

Bloomin Marvelous!!

Want to do more with your Stampin' Up! products than make cards?  Here is a perfect way to do it!

Just had to share some pictures from my recent Bloomin' Bouquet class.  We had a great time creating these works of art!  The images of the flowers are that of a brand new stamp set in the 2014 catalog.  In addition, there is a fabulous punch that coordinates so that you can quickly get them "cut" out!

The girls hard at work on their masterpieces!

For the first time in quite some time, even I GOT TO MAKE ONE!  I absolutely love it!  I have mine sitting on my new island for all to see when they enter my home!  Best part...don't have to remember to water it!
