A Thank You to All

It is with a warm heart that I thank everyone for attending my Open House and to those who followed up with me after the event. I truly appreciate your patronage and the friendships we are developing.

As announced on the invitation, for each $60 order placed with me, your name would be entered into a grand prize draw. That grand prize is $35 in free product (before shipping and taxes).

There are a total of 19 entries. These represent each $60 order so if you placed a $120 order, your name is entered twice. Watch the video to see who the lucky winner is. 


Stamp Cafe on Friday

I`m open for card-making this Friday morning at 10 AM. I have a new card fold to share with you using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. Here is a picture of a card I made using this fold. You will make two cards, each in a different orientation.

Please be sure to let me know if you will be coming so I can pre-cut the materials.
Please bring your basic stamping kit with you particularly your adhesive. If you have the score board, that would be handy to bring as well.

I hope to see you on Friday.

Basic Crafting Kit

Hello everyone,
When I attend a stamp class I like to bring my own tool kit. Although the demonstrator  supplies items such as basic pearls/rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals and glue dots specific to the project we are making, I often want to reach for a paper piercing tool or a bone folder and those are not available. Or if they are, someone else is using it and I don't like disrupting my creative flow by waiting for something. And I like my own scissors. They are sharp and free of glue. Oh and I like to have a pair of tweezers on hand. I store them in a plastic box I picked up at Staples and yes, it's a little too big although I can safely carry home the cards I've made.
So, here are the items in my kit.

Hello everyone,
I have a couple of updates I want you to be aware of:

My Stampin' Up! website -
Several changes have been applied to this site. Stampin' Up! has updated both the design and the architecture to improve the usability of the site and make it more mobile friendly. Unfortunately after applying the updates, several issues were reported and they are working hard to resolve them.

Besides a new header and navigation bar, the information on the home page has been updated to include events. So, all the classes I teach will be listed there but you will have to scroll down the page to find them or just click on Events from the navigation bar. That's the horizontal green bar.

The major item that has moved is the "Shop" button. It used to appear in the upper right-hand corner beneath my contact information. Well, now it's on the navigation bar.

The new Whisper White heavy-weight card stock (p.149) is 100 lb and not 80 as indicated on the packaging. As soon as their current inventory has been exhausted, their new stock will come with the correct labeling.

I will be placing a workshop order tomorrow afternoon, so be sure to get your orders in to me by 1:00 pm at the latest. Thank you.

Paper Pumpkin Special Ends June 10

Just a friendly reminder that June 10 is the deadline for ordering the two-month Paper Pumpkin special - 50% off your first two months of a new subscription.

If you have been a subscriber in the past, you cannot use the same email address to sign up again.
So, to get around this, create a new email account or use someone else's email address. You can still have it delivered to your home and use the same credit card information as before.

As a subscriber you can skip any month and cancel anytime.

And remember - I now have a Paper Pumpkin Club Night - the 3rd or 4th Wednesday of every month at which you can put your kit together with others and share ideas for different designs. These will be posted on my Events page. This months' club night is Wednesday, June 24 at 7:00 pm. If you order before the June 10 deadline, you will get your kit in time.

Oh, and one more thing. Check out the Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin YouTube Channel here.
And Paper Pumpkin subscribers have been posting their creations on Pinterest here.

Friday Stamp Cafe

This Friday, June 5, I've got an easel card to show you how to make. Here is a photo of the first card you can make. The second card will have a twist.

Let me know if you can make it. The cost will be $10.00 for the two. If you have the envelope punch board, bring it with you to make your envelopes as they will be non-standard sizes.
