Purrrrfect for a hot afternoon...


I finished the swap I was working on this afternoon (34 full cards to swap on the cruise) ~ sorry not to post yesterday but I had to get that swap in my suitcase!!!  So, next is to complete my current PAPER PUMPKIN ~ 16 little cards with 16 envelopes  (and lots of extra laser cut elements!).  And, a really cute storage pocket to carry them in.  It is designed to have on hand for sharing random acts of kindness and I am making them to hand out next week ~ in Italy and Greece!  PAPER PUMPKIN makes it easy to share what you love!



Welcoming friends on Saturday.........

Thea and her friend LisaThea and her friend, Lisa, being creative with Stampin' Up!'s new In Color ~ Terracotta Tile and the popular host set, NEW WONDERS!  The other 'make & take' on Saturday used the stamp set, SEASIDE NOTIONS, on page 139 in the new catalog.

In addition everyone who attended made cards using VBSTRONG that I will deliver to Building 1 at the Municipal Center.  Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to express your feelings and send your love and prayers.

Saturday Catalog Launch was so much fun!!!  So nice to see Linda Manning, Janie Dodge, Melissa Burroughs, Wanda Wilson, Betty Mausolf, Thea Fabrizius and her friend Lisa Gibson, Diane Gibson, Rusty Bedard, Lea Ann Ewell, Andrea White and Diana Turner!  Ladies ~ thanks so much for coming to see Stampin' Up!'s new products, make some cards, have a little cupcake and order with the BOGO!  A REALLY FUN catalog launch!  Sunday afternoon ~ more fun ~ more friends ~ can't wait!  Come if you can ~ just email me and let me know in advance.  In the meantime ~ this video is sooooo cute!




Set a course for crafting...........

Turn to page 145 in your new catalog and take a look with me at something called a SUITE.  This is new this year and if you haven't been in the studio this month you might now know about it.  Every once in a while we fall in love with EVERYTHING about a certain stamp set and the products that 'partner' with the set.  The SUITE offers us a chance to see everything that 'matches', in this case with the Sailing Home stamp set.  If you 'like it all' there is ONE ORDER NUMBER for everything on the right side ~ everything used in the pictures on 144 & 145.  But if all you want are stamps and dies, the Sailing Home Bundle is perfect for you (the # is at the bottom of the column) and it will save you 10% (yes, the price on the Suite does save you that same 10%).  Whatever you need to give the gift of sailing (without actually buying a boat), the set has got you covered!

Do you love the SAILING HOME BUNDLE on page 145 in the annual catalog?  If so, you'll want to add the COME SAIL AWAY MEMORIES & MORE CARD PACK (page 171).  In the pack you get 50 double sided cards in 2 sizes, single-sided laser-cut cards and 4 sticker sheets!  Great for your summer scrapbook or for making quick and easy cards!  (ps:  great guy stuff!)
