Where in the World is the SU Catalog?

Today’s location is easy, MY HOUSE! A stack of brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogs arrived yesterday via the UPS truck. The delivery was early in the day so I had the finish my work before I could plunk down and enjoy paging through. The ideas showcasing our product line are super awesome!

Fly Away with Fun Fridays

I snail mailed these cards to members of my Super Awesome Stampers team earlier this week. So everyone should have received one by now so I can reveal the design and the fun postage stamps!

One of the perks of being on my team is receiving about a card a month in your snail mail box. A fun surprise that shows up to brighten your day! If this perk sounds like something you would enjoy, ask me how to become a part of my team.

Have a Super Awesome Weekend!

Your invitation to the Card Buffet!

Getting an invitation is a nice way to know that someone wants to spend time with you. Whether it is to go for a walk, an errand run or another Big Adventure (my Mom’s code word for just about anything that involves car travel), it is usually more fun when done with more than one.

Is today the day you accept my Super Awesome Card Buffet invitation? Before you discount your creativity abilities, consider that the supplies to create the cards in the photos below are prepared by me in neat kits. You just have to stamp and assemble. We also use some fun tools like the Big Shot and punches to create the focal points.

Sounds like something you want to try? Super Awesome! RSVP for one of these sessions: Saturday, May 13th, 9-11am and Thursday, May 18th, 9-11am, 1:30-3:30pm, 6-8pm. I can pack up and bring a mini buffet to you and your friends at a time that works for you. Just ask!

Please RSVP with design picks 2 days prior to your session so I can have enough kits ready and a station reserved for you.

Order as cake, tools, fish.

Order as starburst, rhinestone flourish, wisteria wonder flowers.

5 2 2017 2cbuffet-001

Rubber Rummage Sale

Yes, that is what paper crafters call a sale to rehome their paper crafting goodies. Today’s sale includes a little bit of everything: stamps, designer series papers, embellishments, page protectors and packaging options. I weeded through my already assembled greeting cards and scrapbook layouts and have a stack of those on the sale as well. So if you want the quick route to fabulous projects, I have done the work for you!

The tables are loaded so stop to shop!

Where in the World is the SU catalog?

I am going to let the pictures do the talking since I am tired from a day of advocacy for the Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition. Photos have already been shared on Facebook so this might be an easy one for those that already follow me on Facebook.

Dana and I had just finished our first meeting. As we rounded the corner, I spied the badger. I told Dana about my Where in the World posts. She was happy to participate and I was happy for a model to hold the catalog!

More hints where I was today. Bonus Points if you can name what job the people we were visiting have and what their names are!

Sandra Gines and Hayley Young from WBCC did a great job preparing and ensuring the day went smoothly. Thank you for that!

While waiting for my ride this morning, I remembered that a hand stamped thank you card might be a welcome piece of snail mail for the people we talked with today. I had a few notecards already stamped on hand so I grabbed those quick. Snail mail boxes will be a little more fun for a few people thanks to my ready made stash and quick thinking.

Add a comment with your guesses for another round of Where in the World is the SU catalog!

Clearance Rack and Free DSP Promotion

Screen Shot 2017-04-26 at 6.54.19 AM

Stampin’ Up! has loaded the Clearance Rack with lots of fabulous products! Order early for best selection. Once a product is sold out, it is gone for good!

Shop the clearance rack by clicking on this link.

In addition, I am trying out an online ordering promotion.

For every $50 in sales (prior to shipping and tax) placed through my online store AND using host code E6NBEWZZ that are submitted through May 15th, noon, receive 6 sheets of designer series paper (DSP) of your choice.
Fine Print: You must redeem your DSP by May 31st. Madison area stampers can pick up at my house. Durand area stampers can meet me in Durand. Stampers outside of the pick up zone will receive a stack of randomly selelcted DSP via snail mail. DSP stack is limited to current and retired stock on hand, at least a foot high right now so you should be able to find patterns you like! If you are picking up your DSP, you can schedule a pick up time right after you place your order. Otherwise, snail mailed packets will start their journey to you shortly after your order is placed.
 
If you are placing an order over $150, please do not use the host code since I would like you to keep the host benefits. But I will still honor my DSP offer on these orders too.
Happy Shoppin! and then Stampin!

Bridal Brunch Thank You Cards

So what to do with your bridal brunch paper decor after the party is over? How about transforming the supplies into the guest thank you cards. This is what I did with the patterned paper, flirty flamingo cardstock and vase wraps that were part of the table centerpieces from the bridal brunch this past Saturday.

original decor:

transformed with a little cutting, punching and stamping…

Scrabble and Hot Cross Buns

We hosted an Easter afternoon with Jim’s family on Sunday. Preparations included rounding up all the special dinner and service ware. The next house will have a built in glassware wall, yes, I typed WALL. I like to make tablescapes just like my Mom does.

We have a several generations of glassware from both sides of the families. China from  my Grandma G, serving ware that has been passed down, glasses from a sister (and we used all of them!).

Bunny butt treat bags ensured candy got taken out of the house but just as much candy stayed with us. Cotton tails were on the backsides of the bags.

My first hot cross buns turned out delicious. I’ll be substituting rye flour in my next batch and taste testing with my Dad. He misses the raisin rye from the Dunnsville bakery. I think this is a similar recipe.

My nephew Travis shares his brown eggs for fresh from the farm goodness. His eggs are the extra large brown ones. I dyed the others from store bought white eggs (don’t tell Travis!) with either pickled beet juice or spinach and red onion skin dyed water. Pretty!

Nancy brought a festive dessert. Nice ending to a home baked meal.

Our first Scrabble board. Started with KEG and ended with UR both relating to the beverage industry.

After another Scrabble game, our afternoon was up. Jim and I tidied up while our guests drove back to their homes. Thanks for visiting!

P.S. I did not take a photo of my plate with all the courses. We had honey glazed ham, green bean casserole, lettuce salad, twice baked potatoes, pickled beets, hot cross buns, regular buns and champagne. Yum!
