Forever Greenery Suite Showcase

I prepared a very large pile of Forever Greenery paper crafting kits in my stamp space in Wisconsin over the course of 4 days for the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo Mega Make-n-Take event. Yes, it takes me that long to assemble the kits! It’s just me cutting and scoring cardstock, sectioning out ribbon lengths, calculating how many sheets of patterned paper to cut and then checking twice so I cut in the right place!

The kits were shipped via USPS to the Stamp and Scrapbook Expo headquarters in California where the crew there did the final gathering of kits from the other vendors into shipping boxes. Then, it was on to your house! I hope you enjoy creating along with us today.

If you missed getting a kit, I have 2 Online Retreats in October where you pre-purchase the kits from me. Then, join us online for the retreat from the comfort of your own home. Fall and Spring Fling Friday Night In is October 2nd with a mix of the 2 seasons because my co-host is located in Australia! Click here for details.

Up North Stamp-a-Stack is all about the Snowflake Splendor Suite. My co-host is from Canada so we opted for an up north theme. Join us on October 18th for a fun afternoon. Click here for details. I hope you can join us for one or both retreats. Registration fee is discounted when signing up for both retreats at once. Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are welcome to attend and could be the starting point for you to offer your own retreats.

Now back to what I am showcasing during the SSE event today. Here are three potential designs included in the kit from me.

My video segment is at 2:30pm central time today and can be viewed via these Stamp and Scrapbook Expo at home links:

Pop Up Special

I filmed and edited this Youtube video today. This is actually the second run through. The first time was in a private Facebook group. As long as I was already set up for filming, I thought I would make a Youtube video. Watch to the end because I share a pop up card design that is part of my Pop Up Special. Enjoy!

It’s a Pop Up Special in two ways. The first is that the bonus card is a pop up design. The second is that adding this card to the September Kits in the Mail boxes is only popping up as special to be redeemed by Monday as described below.

Please note that to complete the September Kits in the Mail, you will need to order the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle from my online store. Click this link to order this bundle and also be linked to the host code listed above.
