Today’s Color Combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black

Paper crafting/ Stamping

Happy Friday Stampers! Hope everyone had a great week and are looking forward to some fun weekend days! I know I sure am. I am lucky to be able to wear jeans to work, and I am a little or no makeup kind of a girl. But, I sure do love one of the new Stampin' Up! Colors, Lovely Lipstick. I wonder if I could use a q-tip and reinker and USE it for lipstick…NOT! Anyhoo, today's color combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black. For some reason, I've always thought pinks and blues look fabulous on cards with just a pop of black!

Cruising and Crafting Girls, INK Style!

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Stamping

Happy Friday Stamping Peeps! I'm looking forward to the weekend and spending time with all the fabulous dads in my life! Hope you have some fun plans as well! Speaking of fun plans, I wanted to share some info today on Cruising and Crafting Girls, INK Style!

Cruising and Crafting Girls, INK Style!

My team and customers love to stamp and we LOVE to cruise! SO…we decided to take a leap, get a travel agent, and plan a stamping “adventure” in 2019! Can't you just imagine yourself walking this beautiful beach?! I sure can!

We'll be setting sail on August 25, 2019 from Galveston, TX aboard the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas. In addition to Galveston, our ports include Fallmouth, Jamaica, George Town, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel, Mexico. On our three “sea days” we'll be stamping using the latest Stampin' Up! products from the 2019 Holiday Catalog. Of course, a Girls, INK event wouldn't be complete without door prizes and gifts, too! Did I already mention food, lol? All our events include fabulous food and I think Royal Caribbean just “might” be able to take care of that for us! 🙂

I have a team member coming from Maryland and customers from cities all over. We would love to have you join us!

Take a look at the flyer below and then give me a shout if you have any questions at all. A small, minimum deposit is required to book your cabin and balance does not have to be paid until May 2019.
