Happiest of Days

Happiest of Days birthday

You can find the HAPPIEST OF DAYS stamp set on page 70 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog.  I am spending this afternoon planning my Stamp-a-Stack Class for Saturday morning ~ birthday, sympathy and Valentine cards.  We are not going to make this card but I wanted to share it with you ~ along with the PROJECT SHEET so that you could make it if you are interested.  I think it is lovely!

Oh So Eclectic Bundle Video

Here is another video showcasing some new products in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Shannon creates some great projects using this bundle.  You will love what you can do with these products and how all the different styles work together to create so much!

The colors are amazing and I just love all that you can do.

If you have not received your own new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, let me know.  The Holiday catalog will be mailed out in August and the products will be available September 1 (how do you like that cat punch in yesterdays post?).  Let me know if you have any questions about the products in the So Eclectic Bundle or if I can order it for you.

Thanks, Susan Elise

Another hot day...........

Hummingbird pulled up

My YOU MOVE ME CLASS on July 26 is FREE!  You might wonder why I would offer a free class to those of you interested in this bundle.  When you add the shipping and tax to the bundle the total investment to make these cards is $58.  And, it took me a while to work out the 'how to' details so I want to pass that experience on so that you can have all of the fun without the 'learning time' it took me.  EMAIL ME if you are interested ~ sign up by July 19 and pay just $53 ~ get FREE SHIPPING!

You Move Me

Picture of 2 cards for class

These cards represent a unique concept in the current Stampin' Up!

More information coming tomorrow...........

Marie's card & Embossing Paste Video

Marie's pig card

This is Marie Shaughnessy's card from our meeting on Saturday afternoon.  Isn't it darling?  She used a new product in the Stampin' Up! catalog, Embossing Paste, to create the texture in the clouds.  She also demonstrated the product showing all of us how to use it.  You can find the Paste on page 201 along with a set of Masks and a set of Palette Knives that you use with the paste.  Thanks Marie ~ super demonstration!

 Take a look at the 'how to' video Stampin' Up! created.
