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!

One of a Kind Craft Along Details Here

Look at these fun, fancy fold hand stamped greeting cards! I bet you have seen nothing like them before! That’s because these are my original designs. I like to wow and surprise with unique folds, pops of color and fun embellishments too.

Each box includes 4 each of the 3 apple/pumpkin designs. That means you can share 3 cards of each design and keep 1 of each design in your idea file.

In addition, 1 Halloween kit and tutorial for this design is included too. I just could not resist including the Halloween design even though you might be receiving the box after Halloween! So that’s a total of 13 kits in the box.

Order your box my clicking the Contact button at the top of my blog or PM me in Facebook and ask for the Angle Card Kits. I’ll send a PayPal invoice to your email address for $30. Shipping is USPS priority rate so the box should arrive to you within a few days of ordering. Porch Pick Ups from the Sun Prairie, Wisconsin area are available too. Please don’t delay, order today! The One of a Kind virtual event where I will be sharing the how to video is coming up quick on November 7th. I need time to cut supplies and do an assembly line of the pieces to create the kits:) It’s just me in my stamp space creating the kits.

PLEASE NOTE: To finish the cards according to the samples, purchase the following items from my online store by clicking on the words for the particular product. If you have a similar stamp set/punch in your stash already, those should work if they are about the same size as the Stampin’ Up! versions.

Here is what I used to finish the card kits:

Harvest Hellos stamp set, Apple Builder punch, Real Red ink pad, Real Red reinker, Granny Apple Green ink pad and Pumpkin Pie ink pad.

Assorted adhesives and scissors to cut the ribbons are needed too. Stampin’ Up! does not allow demonstrators to include stamped images in kits. So that is why you need to provide the stamp set, punch and ink pads. I’ll provide the papers for the stamped and punched images. I just can’t do that work for you. Thank you for understanding.

If you are not interested in my Angle Card Kits, how about joining me and a few other demonstrators for a virtual Black Friday event? Details will be posted soon. Save the Date!

The Annual and August-December Mini Catalog can be downloaded through those images on the right side of my blog as well.

It’s a little early to get the house ready for the next season anyway:) I would like to instead prep kits for you! I have 3 virtual events where I can help you push off your fall cleaning too;) Maybe the dust bunnies will skitter away on their own. A girl has to have dreams!

But seriously, I have a Friday Night In planned with my co-host Tracy from Australia on October 2nd, 6-8pm. Yes, it’s next week! I ship USPS 3 day so order as late as Monday night and the kits should arrive to you in time. If not, videos will be available on replay.
