Guessing Game Continued...

Retiring Accessory (2)

I got my first email yesterday ~ so now I have a contest participant!  YEA! Elizabeth Humphrey submitted TWO LISTS ~ one for Bundles and one for Punches (yes, you can submit three if you would like).  THANK YOU ELIZABETH!  Today you will need to concentrate on those RETIRING ACCESSORIES and put them on you list!  All of the CONTESTS END ON MARCH 24 so send me your lists soon!

CONTEST DIRECTIONS FROM MARCH 11:  You guessed it!  On March 24 Stampin' Up! will publish the 2020-2021 RETIRING LIST ~ a long list of the Bundles, Accessories and Punches that will be gone forever.  You will want to look through your current catalog and make sure that you have been able to order everything that has been on your list this year.  Once the Retiring List has been published everything that's listed will be AS SUPPLIES LAST.  So, I think a GUESSING GAME is in order, don't you?  Or, maybe THREE GUESSING GAMES ~ with PRIZES ~ one for Bundles, one for Accessories and one for Punches.  Today's contest is for Retiring Bundles so make your list of ten bundles that you think will be on the LIST and EMAIL me your list ~ be sure and label your list and be sure I know that YOU sent me the list ~ coming soon two more Guessing Games and you can participate in all of them.  The stampers who have the most correct answers once Stampin' Up! publishes the list will win a PRIZE and a GIFT CERTIFICATE OF $15 to use on products in the 2021-2022 Catty!  (If there is a tie, my assistant, Alan, will draw for the winner!)

So Sad Sale-A-Bration ..... ending soon!  But you are invited to join me on Tuesday afternoon, February 23, any time after five to have some SAB fun with the papers and stamp sets in the SAB brochure!  It's just a little get-together stamping party, not a class, and there is no cost ~ just stop by and make some projects using the pretty paper and stamps!  I do need to know that you are coming so that I can have some projects ready for you ~ so ~ EMAIL ME NOW!

And, yes, bring a friend!

Paper Pumpkin Party Event Cover

Join me Thursday for my first ZOOM PARTY.  I will be enjoying my February Paper Pumpkin box (Valentines)  so, if you have yours, we can create together.  Not a Paper Pumpkin Person ~ bring any project that you are working on to enjoy our creative friends.  I will be sending out the link several days ahead ~ anyone can join ~ add a creative hour to your day ~ let's stamp together!

Stampin' Up!'s Love You Always Suite plus MORE....

You can find this Suite on page 11 in the MINI catty ~ so much to love!  My team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators met via ZOOM on Saturday afternoon to share stamping ideas and stamped projects.  Such a great group of stampers!!!  We 'meet' once a month and would love to have you join us!  But, more about this fabulous suite ~ 


I presented a project that I had worked on Friday afternoon with my friend, Lynne.  I used the Love You Always Treat Boxes, # 4 on the right hand side of page 11.  Below is a picture of my project ~ purrrrfect for a Valentine gift, don't you think?  I used the designer series paper to cover the box in black with white polka dots and the coordinating paper ~ Specialty DSP for the heart.  The stamp set is bundled with a set of dies.  The frilly heart die is part of that set ~ look on page 12 to see the set of dies.  The box opens like a drawer and is very sturdy.  It is approximately 3" x 4".  Let me know if you can join me for a VALENTINE PLAY DAY next Saturday afternoon between 1 and 3 PM ~ there's lots to play with.  EMAIL ME!

Stampin' Up! ~ Ice Cream Corner

And, here are her cute samples using the products in the suite.






Dandy Garden Suite/Stampin' Up!

OnStage@Home last weekend was a bit of everything that demonstrators look forward to when they get together for their annual convention.  And, this event had been planned originally to be held in Salt Lake City with demonstrators arriving from all over the world.  Obviously that is not the way it turned out but, I think it was even better this way ~ virtually!!  The more I think about it the more positive I am that this event really topped all the others that I have been attending all these years.  Of course, I did miss seeing demonstrator friends, all the smiles and hugs and catching up.  But, Stampin' Up! did such an excellent job of organizing and presenting that it was easy to focus (at home) and I learned so much (with no distractions).  Yea Stampin' Up!  A very worthwhile use of time!!!  One part of events is always stamping ~ of course ~ so these are the products we received to stamp together ~  Dandy Garden Suite.







Stampin' Up!'s Jenny McCormac

Introducing you to another lovely demonstrator, Jenny McCormac, from England.  She has been a demonstrator for 10 years and had the distinct pleasure of introducing the WELL SUITED SUITE of Stampin' Up! products coming soon in the January Mini Catalog.  Our traditional 'convention' ONSTAGE@HOME was a virtual treat over the weekend ~ beginning on Thursday evening and ending late Saturday afternoon.  It was fabulous and I want to share some of it with you!  Enjoy Jenny's creations!


These are the dies in the suite.
Jenny called these BRACES.

Stampin' Up! OnStage @ Home

GIFTS FROM STAMPIN' UP! this weekend include a stamp set, ENJOY THE MOMENT, below.

One of the presentations today was by Melody Hind the Concept Art Manager at Stampin' Up!


Melody used this stamp set to talk about the different types of stampers ~ beginner, casual and avid.  We have all been a beginner and most of us are casual stampers.  Tomorrow I will post the image with three seed pods that she used to show her approach to the three different types of stampers.  In the meantime here is a really good idea from Melody ~ she uses our Grid Paper (130148 on page 163 in the annual catalog) for a draft of her design.
