Tropical Party

Tropical Party swap card

This is one of my cruise swap cards.  The swap took place before cruise, not on the cruise.  I made 25 cards and sent them to a Demonstrator in Minnesota, Carol Nordquist.  Carol swapped them out and returned 25 different cards to me ~ a great way to get samples to show you!!!

Stamp set:  Tropical Party, Summer Mini Catalog, page 26

Ink:  Old Olive, Rose Red and Chocolate Chip classic stamp pads

Card stock:  Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White card stock

DSP (Designer Series Paper):  Island Oasis, Summer Mini Catalog, page 27

Accessories:  Old Olive Brad, Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon

The texture on the top piece of Whisper White card stock is created using the TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER, # 119976, $7.95, Summer Mini Catalog, page 24.  Need more information?  Just email me.  Want to order ~ go to my Stampin' Up! website for online ordering.  Enjoy!!!  It's a great day to stamp!

Flip Flops & Lemons Drops Open House Rescheduled

Flip Flops

Love this fabulous flip flop!  It is made by Catherine Harwood a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Merritt Island, Florida.  She used Stampin' Up!'s Big Shot and the Daisies # 2 Die on page 199 in the Idea Book and Catalog.  If you want more information, just let me know.

I just sent out my MAY NEWSLETTER and, in the newsletter announced that my Open House, which was scheduled for this coming Saturday afternoon, has been rescheduled.  My FLIP FLOPS & LEMON DROPS OPEN HOUSE will be Saturday afternoon, June 12.  I am sorry to those of you who have been working hard to win the DECORATED FLIP FLOP CONTEST but, you just have more time to make them more creative!  With a little help from Catherine!

Happy Mother's Day!

Adrienne's Hat Box Adrienne's Surprise Adrienne's Gift Card
Adrienne is my ASBF ~ across the street best friend ~ and that's her this morning about 9 AM!  Her daughter, Mary, emailed me this week to ask if I would make a STAMPIN' UP! GIFT CERTIFICATE for her MOM and, of course, I was pleased to do so AND to surprise Adrienne early this morning!!!  Happy Mother's Day to all of you! 

Shelli's Q & A

Elements of Style Purse

I want to make sure that you know that Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up!'s Founder and CEO, has a blog and that you can access it through the STAMPIN' UP! CUSTOMER WEBSITE.  Here is the LINK for you.  I have had so many questions about STAMPIN' UP!'S COLOR RENOVATION and, if you go to Shelli's blog, you will be able to read a recent Q & A that she did.  In it, she answers some of the exact questions that I have been asked (and, really, wouldn't you rather 'hear' it from her ~ she IS the authority!). 

The cute box above is also from her blog.  So, you see, you can find samples that you might want to make yourself on her blog.  Another good reason to check it out once a week or so.  The box is made using the ELEMENTS OF STYLE stamp set from STAMPIN' UP!'S SUMMER MINI CATALOG.  If you haven't received yours in the mail, give me a call and I will get one to you ~ 587-1548.  Also, I will be making phone calls this weekend to ask you about the sets in the new mini ~ and to give you Free Shipping on your next order if you can give me the right answer.  I look forward to talking with you!  

PS:  The question is ~ What stamp set beginning with 's' will I be using to scrap my cruise pictures?
