Announcing Black Friday Virtual Extravaganza Join Us!

I’ll be in my stamp space on Black Friday. Working on holiday cards for sure. Also stamping with you on Zoom. Would you like to join Sandra, Tracy, Elizabeth and me in Zoom? We will have 4 Zoom Rooms open across 4 time zones and 3 continents. You can pop in during any of the sessions and see what other paper crafters are working on in their stamp space. Or discuss your Black Friday purchases. We know you want to buy some stamps from us:)

In addition to the 4 Zoom Rooms, your ticket includes video and pdf tutorials of 8 projects. The tutorial will be emailed around November 24th to give you time to gather supplies if you want to craft the projects on Black Friday. These are projects that will take your paper crafting to the next level. You will want a ticket just for the tutorials!

Your ticket price is as follows. You know me, I have to offer lots of options!

option 1 – $20 ticket paid via PayPal, no order requirement or product included

option 2$35 or more online product order excluding shipping and tax using host code G4SRFDHN

option 3 – Add on the consumable supplies to create my projects (patterned papers, cardstock, ribbons and embellishments): $10 via porch pick up and cash payment OR $20 via USPS delivery and PayPal payment.

I will be using the Snowflake Splendor Suite on page 37 and the Snowflake Adhesive Backed Embellishments on page 29 of the Aug-December 2020 catalog along with coordinating colored cardstock. So if you want to order that Suite, Embellishments and cardstock, you can skip option 3 because you will have the supplies needed for my project. I am using the stamp set and dies included in this suite to complete my projects. So make sure to have those on hand or use similar products already in your stash.

Both option 1 and 2 includes all 4 Zoom Rooms and the 8 video and pdf tutorials. Click the Contact button above and ask for a ticket to the Black Friday Extravaganza. I’ll PayPal invoice you according to which option you select for attendance. If I see a product order come through with your name on it using host code G4SRFDHN that is more than $35 excluding shipping and tax (click these words to automatically have this host code linked to your order), I’ll send a confirmation email to you asking if you want to attend the event. Then, after you say yes!, I’ll add you to my list of enthusiastic stampers to email attendance information around November 24th.

It will be fun to gather in the Zoom Rooms with stampers across the globe to make new stamping friends right from the comfort of your stamp space! Show us what you have made using the tutorials or what you are working on in the Zoom Rooms. Share your snacks too. It always interesting to see what other parts of the world use to fuel their stamping sessions:)

We also have a private Facebook group where you can post what you created with the tutorials and log your favorite holiday traditions.

Hope you can join us! Sandra, Tracy, Elizabeth and I are looking forward to stamping with you then!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Debbie McNeill’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I should start keeping track of the number of times I use the Jar of Flowers stamp set and Jar Punch. I am sure it will be the most used set for me. The new Old World Paper embossing folder will need to be misplaced in my stamp room too so I don’t use it on every card;)

Supplies used…I love my Stampin’ Write Markers for quick, saturated coloring. I also used the Many Mates stamp set for the sentiments.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy Held’s blog in Australia and see what fun project she designed.

Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Annette McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to stamp a birthday card since birthdays are a Thinking of You occasion. It’s a quick and easy card with just stamps, paper and inks.

I have pulled all my soon to be retiring stamp sets and placed them in a pile. It’s 24 sets which I will try to showcase on my blog one last time before they are gone for good! I used the sets in photo to create this card along with the Tailored Tags punch and Country Club designer series paper.

The inks used…look close the stamps have not been cleaned yet!

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Under My Umbrella

I hope you are enjoying our Thinking of You Girls themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from      Krissi Hannah’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Under My Umbrella was calling me. I love stamp sets with coordinating punches because punches are so easy to use. I paired them with the Stitched Shapes framelits, pacific point ink, Noble Peacock Rhinestones, Basic Rhinestones Jewels, white Flax ribbon, blushing bride and mint macoron cardstock. The patterned paper is from the Follow Your Art package. I can totally see making bats from the larger umbrella shapes on the right. Can you?

The supplies used plus one white pompom to stand in a for golf ball from the Assorted Pompoms pack and patterned paper from the Country Club package…paper snip blades were run along the garden green mat to give extra interest. I got a little crazy with the number of Stampin’ Write markers I used. I got ’em, may as well use ’em. I love how saturated the colors are when using these markers.
