Isn't this awesome! I just pre-ordered mine (pre-ordering is only one of the awesome perks Stampin' Up! offers to demonstrators!) This bag will be available to customers on December 5. Shoot me an email if you'd like a reminder when it is available for you to order!

If you aren't familiar with the Stamparatus, here's a short video about this must-have tool!. I cannot be without mine; makes repetition stamping so, so easy!

Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today!

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

Classes / Events/ Stamping

Hey Stampers! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Let me tell you about mine! It was a gullywasher…but they still came! Who you might ask? Why, my loyal customers and friends.

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

The rain could not keep my stampers away; some of the groups drove over an hour to get to my Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Open house.  The event was free, and the first 25 who RSVP'd got a free gift. I had 6 projects, a few snacks and samples galore. There was an extra project for those who decided to place an order, and let me tell you, almost everyone did! 🙂

The projects used new products from the current holiday catalog and I set things up in stations around the room. Here are two of the projects:

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

Moral of the story? Neither snow, nor sleet, nor hail, nor a good ‘ol gullywasher can keep us away from a day of stamping! 🙂

If you live in the Dallas metroplex area, be sure you're on my email newsletter list (fill in your name and email at the top of this post). I definitely want to invite you to my next event!

Hello Monday! Enjoy Life!

Had a bit of a sad end when we returned home. A dear friend lost her battle with cancer and went home to be with the Lord on Sunday. We will all miss her terribly but at least she is suffering no more. As I was thinking about a project for today's post, this “enjoy life” card seemed to fit the bill. We never know when our time on earth is over so I do want to enjoy life, just as my friend Tami did until cancer took her. It is indeed a precious privilege to be alive!

Green With Envy – Shaded Spruce

Customer Q & A/ Stamping

Hey Stampers! I have to confess; I'm not all here today. Only ONE more sleep and we'll be off on our Alaskan Adventure. I think Stamp Slave Dave just might be more excited than I am and that's pretty excited! 🙂 Before leaving, I wanted to share one more “green” post today, Green With Envy – Shaded Spruce. This new color joined the Regals family with our recent color revamp, joining old favorites Old Olive and Garden Green. The vellum piece over the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper adds just a little sumthin' sumthin' to this card. Sometimes just a subtle addition is better than over the top embellishments.
