Swirly Fourth

Hi everyone!

Welcome to July!!!  As June closes out, we still have no resolution to our moving woes.  They are now telling us delivery on Saturday, but, there have been so many missed dates that I hesitate to get my hopes up that this is the "one".  I'll post an update next week.

And, can you believe it?  Next week I will order Holiday Catalogs to be mailed to my customers that are no longer "just a few minutes away"!!!  

Today, as is norm, I have a card for you from my talented sister.  And just in time for the long July 4th weekend!  I call this card Swirly Fourth.  It uses those incredibly versatile Swirly Scribbles thinlits.  If this bundle (#142353) isn't on your wish list, it's a must have!



Supply List:

So, bring a friend and spend 90 minutes so we can meet up and craft!

Banner Surprise

Hello Stampers!

Did you enjoy the Magic Card video yesterday?  I'm going to try to make one next week.

One final reminder - June 30 is the last day for this month's awesome bonus for new recruits!  So, sign up today!  And remember, if you select me as your upline, I will send you a third bonus stamp set of your choice (max value $35.00)

I couldn't stand no stamping any longer.....so, I played a little with the June Paper Pumpkin kit today.  Even though I still don't have all of my supplies, I managed to gather some workable substitutes.

This month's kit is called Banner Surprise.  It comes with enough supplies to make a banner, as well as 6 cards and envelopes,  It's a cute kit - even though I wasn't blown away when I first saw it.

First up is the banner I created.  This will be hanging at my new customer open house on July 23.


Next,, I made 3 of the 6 cards included in the kit.  I slightly varied my cards from the "directions" included from Stampin' Up!






And the coordinating envelopes:



Finally, I created an alternative card using some of the supplies from the kit, a piece of Tip Top Taupe Cardstock #138336 : Delicate White Doilies #141701 , Peach Parfait Classic Stampin' Pad #141398 , Watercolor Wishes kit stamp set #140406,

Magic Card

Hi everyone!!!

I'm back - or rather I'm almost back!  The move didn't go exactly as I had planned.  Everything isn't resolved quite yet, so I don't want to say too much -- but among the things that have not yet been delivered are my acrylic blocks, all my new DSP, several of my new stamp sets, and my Stampin' Mist!!!  What's a stamper to do?  Thankfully, we are expecting to receive the remainder of our household goods on Thursday.  Please keep your fingers crossed for us that we get our things!

At any rate, I saw a video from Stampin' Up! a couple of days ago that is so cool!  I love this card and couldn't wait to share it with you!

Before you watch this video, just a reminder that there are only a couple of days left to take advantage of the awesome promotion for new demos this month.  Two extra stamp sets of your choice, in addition to your $125.00 in product for the sign up fee of $99.00.  And just to sweeten the pot a little further, if you sign up before 11:00 PM MDT on June 30, and select me as your upline, I will send you an additional stamp set of your choice (up to $35.00 retail).  Click the Join My Team link on the right side of the page to get started, or send me an email with any questions you have.

Now, for our feature event - enjoy!!!

Love You Lots

Hi there stampers!

Wow, we had a beautiful day here on Sunday!  Warm temps, abundant sunshine, and really low humidity.....too bad we were inside most of the day finishing up our packing chores.  We're so close to done.

When I got home from work on Friday, Mr. Brown had been here with a big box of goodies for me.  I intended to take pictures to share with you, but I think I was too excited when I was opening the box, because I totally forgot to take take the photos.  Darn!

One of the sets I got is the new hostess set, Love You Lots.  Have you seen this set?  The images are adorable!  I made a set of cards to show you.  So cute, right?
