So; here are the items my group will be making this month:
As you see above I thought we needed to try my newest punch; "The Eyelet Border" Then, I thought who can resist dazzling diamonds?? My hubby actually picked the color combo. Hope the girlie's like it! I think the Level One Hostess Set (Comfort Food) is toooo cute!
Next' I don't know what this is technically called but I am calling it the TOP NOTE PURSE! I finally played with my Big Shot! And I LOVE IT!! I also, love the way the purse turned out! And last but certainly not least; I really wanted us to play with my New Set ~ Trendy Tree's & those adorable mini library clips! I really like the white on white & this set!!! (sorry for the horrible pic; UGH!)
Here is the details but basically the marker club allows you to purchase the 48 Stampin' Write markers in the storage caddy over a period of four months instead of having to purchase it all at once.
Each club member makes a commitment to pay $46.00 per month for four months.
In exchange, every month each member receives 12 stampin' write markers from one of Stampin' Up!'s permanent color families and the coordinating pack of 8.5x11 assorted card stock (3 sheets of each color in the color family).
In the fourth month each member also receives the marker caddy, a pack of 8.5x11 assorted neutrals card stock, and a Level 1 hostess set of her choice.
Ok, so I told you all how I signed back up for Stampin Up and Last Saturday I hosted a party at my house. I am trying to organize a Stamper's 6 Club and so what better way to organize sign-ups than a get together! I had quite a turn out & everyone was so great! I met 3 new ladies & had a blast!! Here are some of the projects we made:
1st is One of the Cards from Stampin Up's Simple Sent Card Elements & more kits! OMGOSH; LUV THESE!!! Just wish there were more than 8 cards in the kit. This is from 2U Card Elements & More: Next I really wanted to use my Brand New Eastern Blooms Set & the Baja Breeze Cardstock (which I think is sooooooooo pretty!) Lastly; I saw this design on SCS and fell in love! My friend; Lisa, whose club month is March; loves Kraft Cardstock so, I ran with it. I think the Real Red & Basic Black with the Kraft are classic. I also broke out my new jar of Clear Embossing Powder & we used that on the black. I can't wait to figure out next month's designs!! Remember it is Sale-A-Bration until the end of the month!!
Holy Moley! You seriously need to check out my cyber~friend Dawn's Blog Candy! She is giving away 18 Studio G stamp sets!! St. Patty's ones! WOO HOO!!! Tell her I sent ya & best of luck to all; may you win the Pot of GOLD (ok, stamps but they are like gold right??)
So, a while back Unity Stamps was offering free shipping & a gift if you bought by midnight! I finally gave in and purchased So & so Loves........knowing it would make a perfect Valentine's Day card. I used my Copics basically for the first time & so I experimented a lot on the different trees. I had like 15 minutes to make this card before the hubby got home. I am happy with it. I was pissed though; because I could not find my Cuttle bug plates (and as a matter of fact; I still haven't; ugh!) I had planned on using Swiss dots halfway up the pink but whatever he probably would not of noticed anyways. However; He did notice our initials so; that made me happy. And as for my prezzie...................WELL, I SIGNED BACK UP AS A STAMPIN' UP DEMO! I am so super excited!!! I will be having a Stampin' Club And will post details here!! It will be a 6 month commitment and you will need to spend at least $25.00 each month & one of the 6 months you get ALL the Hostess Benefits! Again super excited! Hope you like the card & email me if you are interested in club!
I was thinking that this seriously must of been fate for a number of reasons. 1. I have been in a total life funk. 2. I haven't stamped in FOREVER 3. I haven't really been out of the house, Unless you count running my 5 boys all over. 4. I needed to hang out with my friends! (Diana, Lisa, Lauren, & Sharon was there too!) 5. Jen tells us people need a pick me up! Fate I tell ya!
Anyways; I have no idea how Lisa & I even got on the track of this but we were looking at my Fab Mentor's (Diana's) Blog & said...."Let's see if we can go to her 10/10/20 class" Diana; of course said SURE! And away we went! It was much needed girl time, wayyyyyyyyy overdue!
Well, Also on that night of Blog Surfing I came across this on Jen's Blog (LUV THE NEW LOOK!) I mean really?? Over $450.00 worth of goodies just by brightening someones day with a card I made?? NO Brainer! ( You only have till the 31st if you want to join in) So here are a few of the cards I made & have mailed out to Julie at DBU:
Hey ALL !! Long time no post, huh?? If I can ever recover from the Holidays & get my house organized I will get to creating! One of my Resolution's is to use up the stuff I have been hoarding! But for now I have a couple of Blogs to get us all inspired & in the MOOD!! First off; Check out what Carrie Has up for Grabs! It is all about that super cute Sock Monkey from way back in the day! I totally had one of him growing up! TOOO CUTE! Next, A Sistah after my own heart(get it?) who loves Valentine's Day! Just like me!!! Dannette has some candy to get us all in the Holiday spirit! And then there is, Sally's Blog; OH MY CANDY! Is celebrating 39 years with her Hubby & hits on her blog. She is offering two packages of candy but; she wants us to decide! How exciting is that!
