Launch Party was a blast - couldn't come and want to get your wish list filled?

The party may be officially over, but you can still order products on your wish list! Call, email or message me to get included in my order going in tomorrow afternoon. Please have your order in to me by 2:00 pm to get included in this order - and a special thanks to everyone who did attend. I asked Juanita (who shared some demo time with me over the past three days) to draw a name from all the attendees and the name she drew was April L!

Congratulations April - you won this fun Paper Pumpkin kit from December - I know it will look great on your crafting desk and you will have fun making it too!


Here's a look at the fun card we had for everyone to do as a Make and Take from the new Occasions catalogue -  we did the card in the middle and used the Party Wishes Stamp Set and Party Punch Pack bundle - so cute and so quick - stamp, punch and attach - DONE! You may not be able to see the glimmer but we used the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (clear) on the cupcakes - it really is the "icing on the cake". The other two cards came from the same stamp set - there is never only one way to use these stamps and punches - enjoy exploring ideas using your imagination and see what you come up with too!

If you want to make cards like this, let me know and we can arrange a date and time for you to create - with friends or at one of my events :-) and at my studio - anytime it is not booked. And please come to one of my Make it Monday sessions on the 3rd Monday of each month except July and August - drop in for the evening from 7:00 - 9:00 pm and make a couple of clean and simple cards to add to your box for any occasion - no supplies needed, but please let me know you are coming so I have enough kits prepared!

And if you would like Paper Pumpkin delivered to your door - let me know - it's on sale until March 31st for a 3 month subscription, and you instantly get a FREE Sale-a-Bration item too! I'll be happy to add it to any order for you which will save you shipping on the free item - gotta' love that . . .


Check out Paper Pumpkin using this link - or the other products we used over the past few days on my website here. And if you couldn't make it, and want to have a catalogue - let me know and I will get it to you! Delivery for local requests, and by mail for out of town.
Happy Stampin'

Time to get ready for all those birthdays or special occasions!

Happy New Year to you . . . .  and if you are anything like me, once you turned the calendar to the new year, you realized that there is a whole lot of birthdays coming up, not to mention some anniversaries, grads, and maybe even some new babies??

Good thing we have some wonderful ideas to share with you - and they all come from our new Occasions Catalogue and the wonderful companion Sale-a-Bration flyer (it has no prices because every item is FREE with your qualifying purchase!!!).  Click on the links on my sidebar for more details and come to any of my events this month to get your own catalogue/flyer.

Here's a couple of sneak peeks at cards made with some of the amazing new products that you will put on your list right away! I made the cards at a team meeting last weekend where we got to play with other demonstrators and learn "what's new" - so much fun! And I have my first order here so you can see, touch and play too! My favourite new item for quick glam and glimmer is the Wink of Stella pen/brush that comes in clear or gold - I sure hope that Stampin' Up! gets more colours - love them and what they do for a card!

I belong to a swap group that exchanges cards monthly and for January we had to make a card using one or more of the new products - how many can you find in these samples below?? Can't wait to show them to you in person :-)

Some great new 3-D dies, and love that pop-up card in a box and it folds flat for easy mailing!

Drop in to my Make it Monday January 18th (tomorrow night) from 7 - 9 pm - but please let me know you are coming so I can have the coffee/tea on and your kits ready for you to do! This is a once a month evening on the 3rd Monday each month - check it out and you will go home with more cards for your card box - big happy face!!

The new Occasions Catalogue is all about parties and making projects to celebrate the fun events in your lives - and there are so many ways to do that - from quick and easy kits, to punches and matching stamps, framelits that literally POP and much more . . . .  and with every purchase of $60 you pick any item FREE from the Sale-a-Bration flyer (January 5 to March 31st).

Have you been thinking about getting a Big Shot? How about getting a Big Shot and picking two items for free? That was EASY!! Or look at the flyer for some other purchase combo ideas - but letting you know that you can choose any items to buy in any catalogue, and pick any FREE item from the flyer for each $60 you spend.

Mark your calendars for the party times coming in less than two weeks - I will be sharing the event on Friday with Juanita who many of you know as a fellow demo, and both of us will have catalogues, samples and ideas on display as well as make-n-takes for you to do and take home:

Thursday, January 28 from 7 - 9 pm
Friday, January 29 from 1 - 4 pm
Saturday, January 30 from 1 - 4 pm

Can't wait to see you soon and share the excitement and fun of creating with the new products - and just because we are showing off our new spring catalogue, that does not mean we are forgetting our fabulous Annual Catalogue either - it still has so many wonderful products and tools to help you get your crafting done well. I do have a few of the annual catalogues left so if you don't have one, remember to ask when you come to any event!
