Throwback Monday

Can you guess what year these stamps were made? I remember using them when they were in the catalog:)12 27 19 1-001

If you guessed the year 2000, you are correct!

I paired these stamps with blackberry bliss cardstock and ink. The Feels Like Frost Specialty designer series paper pack provides lots of patterns for wintery scenes. It’s available to order through Thursday (item number 150444) by clicking on the Shop Now photo on the right side of my blog.

Happy Stampin’!

In the office today

A nice perk of working for myself is that I set my own working hours. As everyone else is recovering from holiday festivities, I can work on the computer typing blog posts, sending messages, checking the demonstrator website for current updates and team progress. Taxes are on the list for next week! Yes, the work life of sharing paper crafting also involves the non-glamorous business tasks.

Pouring over the Spring catalog and Sale-a-bration brochures while enjoying afternoon refreshments of #NessAlla kombucha, #BuchananHollowNutCompany pistachios and #EauGalleCheeses is a nice break from business tasks. Did you receive your copies in your snail mail box? If not, you can arrange to pick up a copy from me or take one with you when you attend the January Card Buffet.

My last work task today is advertising the in-person January paper crafting events.

Session times are Wednesday, January 15th, 9-11am or Saturday, January 18th, 1-3pm in Sun Prairie. If you would like to attend an event in the Durand area, I’ll connect you with my sister Tricia who is a demonstrator on my team.

Card Buffet stampers create 10 hand stamped greeting cards with all supplies cut according to the samples provided and tucked into the envelopes. You pick which designs to create and how many of each design from a buffet of options. Cost is $20 to enjoy all this fun!

Adhesives are $5 extra for card making or bring your own. I’ll have new packages of glue dots, dimensionals, liquid glue, tear n tape and SNAIL for sale as well.

Optional: There will be one, 2 page 12×12 inch scrapbook layout in the line up as well. It’s $10 per layout or $5 if you are a member of my Super Awesome Stampers Team or if you place an order online using the host code on the right side of my blog or place an order during the event. You provide your own adhesives for assembling the layout.

You are welcome to bring friends! A new friend that has not stamped with me before earns you an extra card kit. If you are a member of my Super Awesome Stampers team, you get an extra kit too.

Please invite your friends! I reserve the right to cancel the session if less than 3 stampers RSVP.

Please RSVP by Friday, January 10th so I have enough time to prepare kits for you. Please let me know when you RSVP if you are interested in the optional scrapbook layout.

Would you like a private session with your group? Just ask for dates!

Hope to stamp with you then!

The Trucks

12 19truck2-001

I meant to post these trucks earlier this week. Sugar Cookie Social guests made them for what I intended to be a party favor to hold the snack sack and chocolate in the truck bed. I bought the snacks before I made a sample of the trucks as you can see the snacks are too large for the truck bed. A chocolate kiss would fit though.

Good Morning Beautiful

As I write this post, Jim Brickman is playing his piano song “Good Morning Beautiful.” It’s a catchy tune that brings in a new day and amplifies the shining sun. I have lots on my schedule for today so need the extra peppy sun to help me through my day.

First up today is writing this post and officially declaring Christmas Holiday 2019 paper crafting done! All senior sessions have been held, neighbor cards have been delivered and greeting cards being sent near and far are on the postal trucks.

The volume of supplies I use around this time of year are fun numbers for me. This is just my best guess for the supplies used for the senior sessions as I tried to keep count while preparing supplies continually during the season.

I could probably make a 12 days of Christmas song out of it, maybe next year!

1000 red rhinestones

600 tied bows

420 holiday rhinestones

200 punched bows

46 rubber bands

36 sheets of designer series paper

28 packages of envelopes

24 packages of colored cardstock

6 packages of whisper white

5 packages Night Before Christmas paper

3 packages of glue dots

and lots of glue sticks!

I prepared 1114 kits for the seniors to assemble with all these supplies. That’s a lot of seniors I visited during the holiday season! Here is a sampling of the designs shared at the sessions.

Wishing you a fun holiday week. Let the Scrabble games begin!
