Fun Flowers and Berry Blossoms

  • Another card from my upcoming Berry Blossoms Card Class
  • Buy 3, Get 1 Free Promotion
  • Open House this week end
Tonight's post is going to be fairly short.  My Holiday mini catalog pre-order was waiting on my door step when I got home from work tonight.  And I can't wait to finish unpacking it and playing with these wonderful new Peekaboo Frames, holiday stocking dies, quilted satin ribbon, and loads more!

First, another card from my upcoming August 14 Berry Blossoms Card Class.  This card showcases not only another print from the Berry Blossoms Designer Series Papers, and also coordinates with the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.  I'm so loving the vibrancy of this card.  I used the White Gel Pen to outline each of the flower petals from the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die. 

See more Berry Blossoms projects I posted earlier showing what we will be making in this class.  More cards coming, so check back.

Here's the recipe:

  • Stamps:  Build a Blossom (leaves) Three Little Words (Sentiments)
  • Papers:  Calypso Coral, Berry Blossoms DSP, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade
  • Inks:  Lucky Limeade (leaves)
  • Accessories: Designer Printed Brads, Basic Pearls, Fun Flowers Die, Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, White gel pen, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Eyelet Border punch, Blossom Petals Builder Punch (leaves), Modern Label Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch,

I made a couple versions of the card, changing the sentiment and using a different color Designer Printed Brad.  Love how the 2011-2012 In Colors work together so well.

Also, check out these samples made with Designer Series Papers, part of this month's promotion.  During August, when you buy three packs of Designer paper, you get a FREE package.  Time to stock up on all your favorites from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.  Excludes Specialty Designer Series Paper and Hostess Designer Series Papers.  No limit to the number of free packes of Designer Series Papers you can earn.  Learn more here.

Here's a list of the Designer Series papers that are part of the Buy 3, get 1 Free promotion.

And to wrap things up...I'm hosting an open house this Sunday, Aug 4.  Stop by if you're in or near NW Houston.  I'll have samples and swaps from the Stampin' Up Convention in mid  - July.  For more details and to register for the fun and prices, click here.

Hope you enjoyed today's ideas!

Last few hours to say farewell ...before the launch of the new Stampin' Up! Catalog

As we're all busy preparing for the long 4th of July week end coming up, I wanted to take a minute to remind you that we're down to the final few hours to place an order for stamping and scrapbooking products you won't find in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, which debuts tomorrow, July 1 at noon.

Here are a couple more items I'm going to miss:

I love this versatile, Decorative Strip Die called, Join in The Cheer, (113452) Price:  $21.95  Sale Price:  $13.17.  But tonight is the Last Chance to purchase.

The long strip is perfectly suited for 12 X 12 scrapbook pages.  Or, cut the words apart, as I did to decorate the gift bag above.  This worked for so many occasions -- most of all Christmas and Valentine's Day.  I'm really going to miss this Die.

Tart & Tangy,  (111514) another of my favoite stamp sets is also retiring tonight.  Tart & Tangy workshops were some of my most popular.  Here are a few samples from those classes.

Don't miss this Last Chance to order this set, ribbons, and dies for your stamp collection before they disappear this evening..

Reminder:  Tomorrow the new 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! catalog and Idea book goes on line at noon Moutain Time.  Check here, tomorrow, for links to the new catalog. The links to the old catalog retire at midnight it truly is Your Last Chance!

Cake, Coffee and New Catalog
Also, on Sunday, July 2, 2-5, stop by my free mini open house for an opportunity to see sneak peek merchandise, samples and try the new dies and punches before placing your order from the new catalog. 

If you are among the 1st ten to RSVP and then attend, you'll receive this fun tote from last year's Memento Mall merchandise available to demonstrators who attended Convention.  See details and RSVP here

One other item I know you'll want...a Wish List!.  You can download and  print a blank Wish List here and get started adding all the items you must have from the new catalog.

Love Bug in My Digital Studio scrapbooking software

I was playing with My Digital Studio software earlier this evening and after dropping some photos from my family's Facebook pages into the quick templates in My Digital Studio software, I stumbled across a feature that lets me make an on-line album and add it as a slideshow to my blog. 

I stated with this great page and the rest of the pages just seemed to fall into place.

I'm curious to find out if  this slide show works.  Click on the replay button below.  Then, leave me a comment one way or the other.   If it does work, this would be a fast, easy way to quickly add tutorials for projeccts onto my website...a plus for both you and me!

Find more samples like this on My Digital Studio

I can't wait to get to Stampin' Up's! convention the middle of next month.  I'm registered for My Digital Studio software classes and I'm sure I'll return with even more ideas to share with you.  

You've been to scrapbooking conferences, so you know how much you love the inspirational ideas and the photos you take of all the wonderful samples you've seen.  I was just going through my photos from the last Stampin' Up! Convention and I was amazed to find over 1500 photos!  I have to remind myself that the samples and demos we see at the Stampin' Up! Convention are some of the most professional, creative ideas available in the paper crafting industry today.  Looking at them just once doesn't do justice to these photos packed with design ideas as well as business tips for turning your love of paper crafts into a business!  I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! has in store for us this year.  Just 16 more days until Convention!

If you've thought about joining Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator, now is a great time to join.  Excitement at the start of the new catalog year can help set you on the path to a wonderful new hobby or a rewarding career.  And Fall and  Winter are the best times of the year to be a demonstrator.  Watch a quick demo of some of the stamping techniques you can do with your Starter Kit once you sign up as a demonstrator.

If you are interested in learning more about the benefits demonstrators enjoy, this link  tells you about the product discounts, extra income, flexible schedule and support from Stampin' Up! that you'll receive for joining.

And whather you join as a hobby demonsrtator to buy your Stampin' Up! products at a discount, or if your join to make Stampin' Up! your career, this link tells you how a demonstrator earns discounts, income, free stamps, commissions, cash and product bonuses, incentive trips and other awards.

Final few days before retiring stamps, papers, ribbons and embellishments from the current catalog are gone.  These items are listed on the Last Chance Lists.

Free new catalog with a US$50.00 order placed on my Shopping Site.  My new 2011-2012 Idea Books and Catalogs have arrived.  Want a free catalog?  Place an order for $50 or more on my Stampin' Up! shopping site between now and June 30 and I will send you a free ($9.95 value) Stampin' Up! catalog on July 1.  Sorry, this offer good for U.S. addresses only.  Or, visit my new catalog open house on Sunday, July 3.  Check out the details and RSVP here:
