Spice Cake Sneak Peek

Hi!  I just got home yesterday from a fabulous weekend at the Scrapbook Lodge.  I just love my girls' weekends there!  It is so relaxing, we laugh all weekend, eat too much and get lots of scrapping time!  I brought some of my new goods from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog!  I LOVE the new Spice Cake DSP and fabric - it is so gorgeous!!!  Here is a layout I created using some of the paper:

This is a picture of my little family from last Christmas.  I just love it!  (And printing it in black and white hid some of my wrinkles - lol!)  I love how this layout turned out and might just have to incorporate this layout into an upcoming Scrapbook Class!

Products Used:
Stamps:  You're a Gem
Ink:  Soft Suede
Paper:  Spice Cake DSP (from upcoming Holiday Mini), Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Punches:  Circle, Scalloped Circle, Heart to Heart
Big Shot:  Alphabet Simple Letters
Other:  Designer Buttons (neutrals), Linen Thread, Basic Pearl Jewels, Sponge Dauber (to ink letters)

I have lots more to share with you but must go catch up from being away all weekend.  (Luckily, everyone survived without me.  Actually, the house was clean, laundry was done, homework completed, and there was some little lava lamp experiment in the freezer?!  What a good daddy!)

Have a super creative week!!  (And don't forget - Crazy 4 Cards Class this Friday!)

Sail Away

Do you have everything you want from the Summer Mini Catalog yet?  There are so many great products in there and you can only order through the end of this month!  I love the Sail Away stamp on pg. 11.  I used it last month for our Crazy 4 Cards Class.  Here's the card:

Products Used:
Stamps:  Sail Away, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Early Espresso
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Naturals White
Punches:  Decorative Label Punch
Other:  Designer Buttons (neutrals), Linen Thread, Sponge Dauber

Everyone really liked this card.  I always keep different sentiment stamps out at class in case they want to change the card to suit their needs.  It works great!  Teeny Tiny Wishes is such an awesome stamp set with sooooo many different sentiments to choose from.  It's one of the more expensive stamp sets we have - but now with my Rewards Program, you can earn it for free!!

You have until August 31st to order products from the Summer Mini Catalog and then they're gone for good!!  (Well, a few things have carried over to the new Idea Book & Catalog!)  You can shop online or email me to place an order.  Once you place an order, you'll receive your Rewards Card from me!

Tomorrow I'm off with 14 other creative ladies for a scrapbook retreat in the North Georgia Mountains!  I'm so excited to have a fun, relaxing girls' weekend!!  Have a great weekend and do something creative!!

Mint Chocolate Chip Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday!  Today I have one of the cards we made last month at the Crazy 4 Cards class to show you.

I just LOVE the new Stripes Embossing Folder!  It's going to get lots of use around here!  And isn't that ice cream cone cute?!  I used the Petite Pennants Punch and the Cupcake Punch (and their coordinating stamps sets) to make the ice cream cone.  We all decided it looked like mint chocolate chip ice cream! (One of my childhood favorites!)  This card is clean and simple but fun!

Products Used:
Paper:  Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Patterns Designer Series Paper (neutral)
Stamps:  Pennant Parade, Create a Cupcake
Ink:  Soft Suede, Certainly Celery
Punches:  1 1/4" Circle, Scallop Edge Border
Big Shot:  Stripes Embossing Folder

If you haven't received your copy yet of the new Idea Book & Catalog, contact me today!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'd love to hear from you!

Earn FREE Stamps!

Happy Monday!!  I wanted to share with you my new Rewards Program that began August 1st.  I love being your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and want to offer my loyal customers an opportunity to earn FREE stamps!  Here is the Rewards Card you'll receive when you make a purchase with me:

And here's how it works:
  • Earn "punches" for merchandise purchases in increments of $25 or $50 on corresponding spaces on card.  Separate order totals may not be combined to reach a punch.  For example, a $24 order will not earn a $25 punch; a $35 order could earn a $25 punch but the remaining amount does not carry over or count toward a $50 punch.  
  • Dollar amount equals the total before tax and shipping.
  • Includes online orders, workshop orders, class orders, My Digital Studio downloads and printing orders.  (Excludes kits and retreat fees)
  • You are responsible for keeping track of your own orders.  I will verify orders once your card is filled.  Tracking sheet (in Word format) available upon request.
  • Rewards Card Program begins August 1, 2011.  Your Card will be valid for one year after the date of your first punch.
  • Once your card is full, you will receive a FREE stamp set of your choice from any of the current catalogs. 
  • Once you've redeemed your card for your FREE stamp set, a new card will be issued!  :) 
  • Don't forget - you earn Hostess Dollars on orders of $150 or more! 
Thanks again for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!!   :)
