Hand Penned is the July Suite of the Month

Suite of the Month is a unique program where you are rewarded for purchasing the designated suites from me. Yippee! You earn a free make and take kit when you purchase the designated suites with Youtube links provided for kit assembly. Which means you can assemble the kits when it works into your schedule. I’ll also include a Zoom social so we can chat about all things Stampin’ Up! or bees or bread making or whatever else we can find interesting to discuss:)

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. So you will get a bundle of ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. The video links and project photos will arrive in your email box as a pdf file. Super Sweet!

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held later in the month. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll ship your make and take kit to you automatically for that month. Please Note: If you purchase the designated suite after the month has past for that suite, I will only be able to share the video links and not the make and take kits.

You are welcome to order any and all of the suites on the same order so you can earn and spend all the host rewards. If your order stays under $150 (excluding shipping and tax), please use the host code on the right side of my blog when ordering. If your order is over $150, don’t use a host code so you can redeem all the host rewards yourself.

Here are the Suites being featured with links to my online store using a current host code. All page numbers refer to the May-April 2021-2022 catalog unless noted.

Scrapbooking Kits in the Mail On Sale Now!

I thought I would try something new for the July 2021 Kits in the Mail. Introducing 2 scrapbooking themes that could be used on greeting cards as well.

The first design features the Hand Penned patterned papers, dragonfly shapes and pretty ribbons. You select either the purple hued patterned paper as shown below or the pinkish ones in the next photo.

The second design features a summer favorite, ice cream!

PLEASE NOTE: The 12×12 inch background paper is not included in the kit. You will need to add your own 12×12 background paper. What is included are the patterned papers, cardstock mats, ribbons and embellishments cut to size. Ice cream punches, dragonfly punches and epoxy accents are included depending on which kit you order. There may be substitutions for color coordination and as supply is depleted.

If you are not interested in making a scrapbook layout, the pieces make nice card candy to be attached to card fronts.

I recommend purchasing the Sweet Ice Cream bundle and Hand Penned Petals bundle with coordinating ink pads to add hand stamped accents using the coordinating punch (ice cream) and dies (hand penned).

P.S. Here is a Facebook Live video sharing the Dandy Garden Suite and my current Kits in the Mail designs. I share in the video how I created the focal point for the greeting card pictured.

Introducing Suite of the Month!

The January to June 2021 catalog and Sale-a-bration 2021 brochure should be arriving in your snail mail box soon. It’s filled with lots of super awesome paper crafting products that you can use in the comfort of your stamp space. Hide in the space all you want to, once you load up on the new goodies!

I have designated 5 product Suites that will end up on my shelves because of their unique punches, cute snail mail images, splashes of purple or because ice cream is the theme. Yes, ice cream has it’s own suite!!! Coming from a former Dairy Queen employee, a cherry dipped curly top is still my favorite DQ treat!

One product suite per month will be highlighted starting in January. I hope these suites are on your shopping list because you will earn a free make and take kit when you purchase the designated suites. Then meet me in Zoom to assemble the kits while I demonstrate where all the pieces go. If you miss the Zoom social, a Youtube link will be sent to you so you can assemble the kits at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. So you will get a bundle of ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. Super Sweet!
