I am stretching my fall design because it’s still fall here where I live. No snow has stuck on the ground yet, just wet leaves. I worked a good portion of those into the garden on Tuesday. My vegetables will grow high and pest free next year!

Assembly line stamping…I use a desk calendar blotter and past month calendar pages for a larger stamping area when assembly line stamping.

I snail mailed a stack of these cards for the Sugar Cookie Social invitations because I really liked the color combination. It was fun to take the time to custom create my own designer series paper too. Even if you did not get an invitation, you are still welcome to attend. Sugar Cookie Social event details are in this post. Hope you can make it!

This is how I roll

My Mom wanted to know how I got my stamp expo display set up to my booth. Here you go Mom!

My Lands’ End rolling suitcases I purchased years ago when I worked as a call agent have served me well over the years. Countless vacations to far away places, trips up and down the interstate and short jaunts to the expo:) I can pack 5 tubs (that equals 5 projects) per suitcase, strap on the Big Shot on top of one suitcase and my catalog bag on the other and away I roll!

The expo center has rolling carts to transport my containers to my car. I went home with a lighter load so that helps with pack up.

Thanks to everyone that stopped at my booth. I’ll be following up with you in the next week. If you have found some goodies in the catalogs you would like to order, you can do so by clicking on Shop Now on the right side of my blog. Please use host code EKNVNV97 if your order is less than $150. If it is over $150, do not use the code so you can redeem all the host rewards!

I have deglitterized the cutting table from preparing the snow peeps make-n-take I featured at my booth. Tomorrow I tackle deglitterizing the main table where I prepared the kits!

Here are the 2 make-n-takes. Can you guess which one was more popular? Leave a comment with your guess. Toodles!

ICS Blog Hop Gather Together

Thank you for hopping around with us as we share fall themed projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products from the holiday catalog which goes lives today! You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I settled on inking up my Gather Together stamp set with cajun craze ink for the maple leaf, sentiment and subtle background stamping. The Gathered Leaves dies perfectly cut the maple leaf. It’s popped up on a dimensional with linen thread behind. I quickly created this card at a family retreat for my sister so she could participate in our card swap. She did not have time to make a set of cards prior to the retreat. I still wanted her to go home with a set since she enjoys paper crafting just as much as me:)

The Gather Together stamp set has the roundish circle stamp for a subtle background effect.

Holiday Catalog Demonstrator Perk

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Perk priority #1 today was placing a preorder of holiday catalog products! Lots of super fun products made it on my order including a fall leaf suite and snow things. I am sure my list will be longer once I get a copy of the catalog in my hands. I skipped adding Halloween products but I see we have premade coffin boxes!

My preorder product box will contain 16 copies of the holiday catalog. Would you like a copy? Plan on attending the August Card Buffet and go home with your personal copy. Click on Card Buffet on the right side of my blog for the August session details and RSVP today!

Pssttt…demonstrators receive 1 free copy of the catalog. Demonstrators who sign up to be a member of my team will received a copy in their starter kit. Plus, you may pick holiday catalog products to be included in your starter kit. As an additional bonus through the month of August, Stampin’ Up! is adding $30 to your starter kit dollars. THEN, you’ll receive a $10 coupon code the following month. Know someone who may be interested? You or that crafty friend of yours? Click the Contact button above if you have questions about how to sign up to be a member of my team.

So my holiday catalog pre-order is still being picked. I am sure that the picking line was fully staffed today. It’s fun to receive notification that UPS has picked up my product box and it’s headed my way! Call that Demonstrator Perk #2 and it’s almost better than a choco taco on a hot, summer day.
