I composed this short poem as my day was wrapping up yesterday and shared it in the One of a Kind Facebook group. Since it was the last thing I did, I forgot I could share it on my blog too:)
“Twas the Night Before Stamp Saturday,” an original poem composed by Shirley Merker, Super Awesome Stamper
Twas the night before Stamp Saturday, and all through the house,
the dust bunnies were not scared, in fact, they were going to a Ball.
A Ball you say? An in-person event? No, not quite.
This Ball requires a clear stamp space with ink pads, markers and stamps lined up.
Ready for the next demonstration? You got that right!
Snacks on the side, with the dust bunnies keeping company way in the back.
We are ready for Stamp Saturday, now I bid you a Good Night!
Stamp Saturday is here will my presentation at 2pm central time in the One of a Kind Virtual Event Facebook group. Join the group to see my video and the scrappy strip technique demonstrated. I’ll share assembly tips on the other designs too as time allows. I’ll be sharing in depth how to videos in the coming days on my business Facebook page as well. Search for Super Awesome Stamper Shirley Merker and you have found me.
If you are visiting my blog today for the Show Special, here it is…I am celebrating 17 years as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator today. So offering 17 pdf tutorials seemed like an appropriate way to celebrate!
I have about 20 Kits in the Mail available for shipping. Place and pay for your kit order by Sunday, August 16th, noon and I’ll include a bonus kit for a total of 15 items in your box! Read below for kit details. Thanks!
Each kit contains paper, ribbon and embellishments tucked in an envelope to create 3 each of 4 greeting card designs shown in the photo below. Card liners for the inside and already scored cardstock are included in all my kits. Substitutions in papers and ribbons may be made for a wider variety of creativity options for you. Lots of flower patterns are included so you will have plenty of options to select from with leftovers to create more cards.
Here are the unassembled supplies included in the kit. Parts for each card will be tucked in their own envelope. Foot long ribbons will be along the side in the box. Not shown is the bonus card and thank you card.
