Learn to “Brusho” Like a Pro!

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Online Classes/ Videos

Hey Stampers! Let's face it; learning a new skill can be intimidating. Remember when you were a kid and were taking your first spin around the block on that shiny new bicycle? C'mon, admit it…you were afraid of falling off. It might hurt! But, I  bet with mom, dad, or older sibling's help you learned how to ride like a pro, despite a few tumbles! We're past the cycling days (well, at least on our pink Schwinns of old) but we still can  get intimidated learning a new technique or mastering a new product. Take Brusho Color Crystals for instance. Have you  seen this product in the  Stampin' Up Occasions Catalog and flip right on by? In my latest class, Brusho Artistry, you'll Learn to “Brusho” Like a Pro!

I find many of my customers get unnerved when they begin to watercolor. Getting “messy” and using a technique which often turns out differently each time presents a challenge for them. if you find yourself in this boat from time to time, it doesn't have to be that way. I can help you become the “watercolor artist” of your dreams! 🙂

Here are snippets of some of the projects I'll be teaching.

Learn to "Brusho" Like a Pro!

I know you will come away from class loving the Brusho Color Crystals as much as  I do!

Here are the cards we made. In case you didn't know, I also do an online stamp club. If you order at least $40 in merchandise from my online store using HOSTESS CODE VAGY4PBW by April 15, I'll send you free kits to make all three cards!  No stamped images but all other consumables, including envelopes will come in your kit.

The Stampin’ Up! Retired Product List – Don’t Wait!

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Holidays / Special Days

Hi All,

Dave here…  Anne asked me if I would handle the Retired Product List today.

This is THE list of all of the Stampin'Up! products that will be “retiring” and going away forever!  Naturally, as Stampin'Up! cleans house to make room for new products, there are going to be a buncha' things that ‘we' all like on that list, right?  😉

This is the time to grab them
before they're gone!

The Stampin' Up! Retired Product List - Don't Wait!

I understand that the first things to go will be anything InColor. Any InColor papers, DSP, ribbon, other embellishments, will be on the list and go fast. Be sure to look at the list as soon as you can. If you have some favorites, grab them early! (Unfortunately, some people buy up bunches of them and then sell them at MUCH higher prices on EBay so don't wait!)

Here is the list. We have it either as a PDF, or as a ‘sortable' Excel file! (The sortable Excel file would be my choice, but I'm kind of an Excel geek! LOL!) Here you go…

SU Retiring Product List – Occasions Catalog Excel

SU Retiring Product List – Occasions Catalog PDF format

SU Retiring Product List – Annual Catalog Excel

SU Retiring Product List -Annual Catalog PDF Format

You can order at Anne's online store. Use hostess code VAGY4PBW and you'll receive card kits free for Anne's April online club.

Best Regards,
Dave

Please contact Anne if there is anything we can do to help you with the retiring list.

Ft. Worth Stampin’ Up! OnStage Excitement and Swaps

Classes / Events/ Memories & More/ Scrapbook

Hey Stampers! Today I wanted to share some Ft. Worth Stampin' Up! OnStage Excitement and Swaps with you! These big events are always a blast, but this one will be  even more exciting for me because I am a presenter! It's an honor to be chosen; I'm a bit nervous but I've practiced a lot and some of my team will be there  to cheer me on!

I'll be driving over tomorrow morning with one of my team members; stopping at Starbucks on the way of course! In the afternoon I have a rehearsal for my Saturday presentation and later in the evening the CentreStage event for silver Elites and above. We always get some fun “goodies” (aka new products coming out in the 2018-2019 annual catalog!) and get to party with our stamping friends!

One of the most fun things about attending an event such as this is making and exchanging “swaps”. We get lots of great ideas. I used one of our Memories & More kits to make mine.

Ft. Worth Stampin' Up! OnStage Excitement and Swaps

I just love these card packs. You get so many cards of 2 different sizes, along with some sticker embellishments. You can  put together cards in a snap or use these kits in your scrapbooking. Check out all of our Memories & More offerings here.

One of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and  attending these OnStage events is the  ability to see and pre-order new products before anyone else…woo hoo! I had some ladies join my team during our Sale-A-Bration special and they are uber excited about getting to order NEW STUFF!  I won't be able to actually share product pictures until Monday after the event (confidentiality rules), but I'll try to post my stamping friends and I having fun!

On This Day In History…Dyngus Day!

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Holidays / Special Days

Hey Stampers! Did You Know Today is Dyngus Day? Did you even know there WAS a Dyngus Day? I sure didn't until today. My Stampin' Up! business coach records a message for me every Monday morning. He gives me highlights of special days in the upcoming week. This week kicked off with…you guessed it, Dyngus Day!

Dyngus Day, also spelled Dingus, is a fun Polish Holiday. It is very popular in Poland, and in Polish communities all across the United States. After the long Lenten holiday, Dyngus Day is a day of just plain fun.  It is always celebrated on the Monday after Easter.  Polka music is a tradition on Dyngus Day and it is often mandatory for participants to dance at least once.

Perhaps the most well-known Dyngus Day tradition is that in which single boys try to splash water on single girls as an expression of interest.  This tradition dates back to the baptism of Prince Mieszko I on Easter Monday in 966 A.D. The water symbolized purification. The rite of sprinkling water on the holiday is an expression of gratefulness that the first Polish king was baptized, and that Catholicism entered Poland. Participants use buckets or, in modern day, squirt guns. Some boys use cologne instead of water.

Lest you think the boys have all the fun, single girls can reciprocate or “retaliate” on Tuesday by throwing dishes and crockery at the boys. What a hoot!

I really enjoy finding out about traditions all over the world and I hope you got a bit of fun out of today's share, too!

Oh, one bit of stamping news to share, too. Mark your calendar for April 9. This is the day the list of retiring Stampin' Up! products comes out. The new annual catalog makes its debut on June 1, so lots of products are “retired” to make way for new stuff. Stay tuned!

Love It Live It Share It by Stampin’ Up!

Classes / Events/ Join My Team

Love It Live It Share It by Stampin' Up!  This is on the front of our current seasonal catalog and it is what we do! My recruit had her second workshop and I went up to help and be moral support for her. She really didn't need any moral support; she's flying great on her own! But, it's always fun to meet new crafters, right?! Here are a few pictures of the evening:

Love It Live It Share It by Stampin' Up!

We had younger ladies, a few seniors and even one in a wheelchair; each one left with two handstamped projects and boy were they proud!

Stampin' Up! has wonderful products to share but sitting around a kitchen table with kindred crafters is what it is all about!

If you might be interested in gathering a few of your friends together either locally or online, or might be interested in what being a Stampin” Up! Demonstrator might offer you, let's chat! You can call me (214-293-4461) or email me for a chat.

Where Are You Christmas?

Classes / Events/ Holidays / Special Days

Can you believe Christmas is almost here! I've been listening to Christmas songs during the day while I work. We do all sorts of fun things at our office, including cube decorations. Our Underwriting gang is doing a “Grinch” theme and I am loving it!

Where Are You CHristmas?

Have you seen this movie? Brings tears to my eyes every time I hear this Faith Hill, Where Are You Christmas?, one of the songs from the movie.

https://youtu.be/P14jxKY3Gy8https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=faith+hill+christmas&view=detail&mid=E8C8FB8FFE685A6AA118E8C8FB8FFE685A6AA118&FORM=VIRE

I think this song captures the best moment in the movie, when the Grinch's heart became full of love and spilled over to the folks in Who-ville.

Love. Isn't that what Christmas is really all about? Yes, the presents with glittery bows, the smell of Christmas cookies baking in the oven, spending time with family and friends are all wonderful. Who doesn't love shaking that special present under the tree in hopeful anticipation? The joy in my grand-cherubs eyes brings ME much joy, too. But truly, without love, where would we be?

If you'll indulge me for another moment, I want to share a couple of pictures from our Girls, INK Christmas party last night. My heart is always so full after our annual party. Even though not everyone could attend, it truly is an evening filled with laughter and love. We come from different places, all joined Stampin' Up! for different reasons, but we truly love each other and what we do!

Where Are You Christmas?

Where Are You Christmas?

Love. Yes, my heart is full of love this season. I have wonderful family and friends whom I dearly love and love me. And, I believe, I have an even greater love. The love of God in the love of His son Jesus. Indeed I am truly blessed.

Love. I wish lots of love to you and your families as we head into this Christmas season. Thanks for stopping by today!

Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Product Information

Hey Stampers! Busy weekend for us, getting ready for our vacation to Spain. We were blessed to earn the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to the Mediterranean last year and we spent a few extra days in Barcelona. We decided right there and then, we would be going back this year. Spain is home to many fabulous vineyards so today's card “Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?” seems totally appropriate, don't you agree?

Is Your Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

I am definitely a “purple queen” so Rich Razzleberry fit the bill for this card! Notice the shading on the wine bottles and inside the glasses. Our new Stampin' Blends markers make this so very easy. My preferred coloring style is to lay down the lighter color first, and then highlight with the darker shade. Each marker has both a light and dark shade. You can also mix and match colors for another effect.

Here's a short video that explains some of the features and benefits.

The next video shows you some of the basics of blending with the new markers.

 

I also have short Facebook LIVE video about a special gift I have for everyone who orders the full set of available Blends from me! I've already given several out and the ladies LOVE it! You can also order the new Stampin' Blends as part of a starter kit and get all of them for only $99 plus tax and shipping is FREE! Check out my Girls, INK team. Any questions about this, please give me a shout.

In case you have some “winey” friends (haha), here are the instructions so you can send out to your buddies! All supplies may be ordered anytime at my online store.

Vellum Embossing Tip – Cheers to the Year Wedding

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hey stampers! One year ago tomorrow, our daughter married the love of her life. I truly can't believe a whole year has passed; I wish we were just getting ready for the wedding so I could enjoy it all over again…ha! Since that isn't possible, I have a wedding project to share with you. Also, a Vellum Embossing Tip – Cheers to the Year Wedding card.

Vellum Embossing Tip - Cheers to the Year Wedding

2 tips to think about when using vellum. First, since adhesive will show through the vellum layer, be sure to hide it under an embellishment (such as a button or rhinestone) or use ribbon to adhere vellum layer to card . Second, as in today's project, when you stamp on vellum, be sure to use your heat tool to “set” the ink. Even better, emboss your sentiment and then you can be sure the ink will not smudge.

Here are the instructions for the card. If you would like to make it, all the supplies can be purchased at my online store.

Supplies:

  • Stamps – Cheers to the Year-144925 w, 144928 c
  • Stampin' Up Paper– Thick Whisper White-140272, Whisper White-100730, Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper-144640, Champagne Foil-144748 (from Year of Cheer Suite, page 36 of 2017 Holiday catalogue), Vellum cardstock-101856
  • Stampin' Up Ink– Basic Black-140931
  • Other Stampin' Up Supplies and Tools– Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder-143705, Big Shot, Sweet & Sassy Framelits-141707, Banner Triple Punch-138292, Pearls Basics Jewels-144219, Stampin' Dimensionals-104430, SNAIL Adhesive-104332, Mini Glue Dots- 103683, Heat Tool- 129053

Measurements:

  • Whisper White Thick- 4.25”x11”, scored at 5.5”
  • Champagne Foil Sheet- 4”x 5.25”, plus piece for die cutting
  • Year of Cheer DSP- 3.75” x 5”
  • Whisper White- small piece for die cutting
  • Vellum- about 1” x 4” strip

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut and score the Thick Whisper White cardstock.
  2. Add the Champagne Foil sheet with SNAIL Adhesive to the card front.
  3. Run the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper through the Big Shot in the Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder– making sure to keep the heart centered. Adhere this embossed layer to the Champagne Foil sheet with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Then, cut a piece of Champagne Foil sheet with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits to create the large heart.
  5. Cut a smaller heart from a piece of Whisper White cardstock to fit on top with a smaller heart die.
  6. Stamp the Mr & Mrs from the Cheers to the Year stamp set in Basic Black ink on the Whisper White heart.
  7. On the strip of Vellum Cardstock, stamp the supporting greeting with Basic Black ink and heat set with the Heat Tool so it doesn’t smudge. Trim ends with the Triple Banner Punch.
  8. Adhere the hearts to the debossed heart on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  9. Add the vellum over top with some Mini Glue Dots, then hide the glue dots with some Pearls Basics Jewels.

 

If you like to take classes but find yourself too busy, my Facebook LIVE classes are a great solution. You can pop in for the live class, or watch later at your convenience. My latest class is coming up on November 16 at 7:00 pm CST and I'll be making three projects with the Quilted Christmas Bundle.
