Make n' Take samples

Yay it's Friday!  I'm not sure why I'm excited about that except the fact that it's one more day closer until I can order stuff from the new catalogue :)  

If you stop by you can choose favourite In Colour and make a quick and easy monochromatic card.   Incorporate elements from each or all and make your own design.

Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss

Some other new catalogue products featured here are Work of Art stamp set, Scallop Tag Topper punch, Stitched Satin ribbon, Moonlight Designer Series Paper stack and the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.

If you can't attend the event be sure to contact me by Sunday to place your first 2014-15 new catalogue order!!
Have a great weekend!

I MADE THIS! Alcohol Blendabilties markers by Stampin UP

Yesterday I spent the morning colouring like I was in Kindergarten (or probably more recently like when I was back teaching preschool).

 And it was SO MUCH FUN!

I can't believe I MADE THIS!

 Just another sneak peek at the Blended Blooms stamp and a little showcase of the Blendabilities markers that are in the catalogue.  Woo hoo!  It is so easy to shade and blend colours with these fabulous markers.  

While these markers are in the new catalogue they will not be available on June 2nd.  Yeah, you can have a sad face.  Stampin UP wants to be sure they have enough supply on hand when these markers do go on sale to customers.  They are targeting an early July availability so keep your fingers crossed. 

These 6 sets will be the first to be released and then the rest will follow at a later date.

 - Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and the skin tone assortment

 I know these are a highly anticipated product but just hold tight a little longer because they're coming!!!! 

Watch for a Blendabilities class coming in the fall.

 Thanks for stopping by.

New, new, new!!!

FINALLY, a chance to play with some of my new goodies from the new catalogue!  As a demonstrator, I am VERY lucky to get a sneak peek of new products before they are available to customers. 

Starting today until the end of June you have a fantastic opportunity to become a demonstrator for just $60!  The Sign and Save promotion allows you to choose $65 worth of products and pay just $60 and no tax or shipping! It's fantastic time to join at the beginning of a very exciting NEW catalogue PLUS you can purchase all of your Christmas gifts and supplies (at a discount) when the Holiday catalogue is released to demos in August (customers in late August).  PLUS a sneak peek to purchase those goodies too!  Being a demonstrator is simply awesome!!!

When I joined Stampin UP in 2007 I NEVER imagined that this would become my full time job but what a fantastic journey it is and continues to be. 

Here is a peek at what I do in a day - ha ha!  Make cards!

This is a new stamp set called Blended Bloom.  It's a great focal flower for the center of a card or scrapbook page.  I used the new Blendabilities to colour the flower in Coastal Cabana.  The background is another new set called Work of Art.

Colours used - Smokey Slate, So Saffron, Pool Party and Lost Lagoon inks

Here is a second COMPLETELY different card with the same stamp but stamped on to coloured card stock (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Basic Gray).  The sentiment if from the set  A Dozen Thoughts.

Lots of fussy cutting on these ones (cutting around the outline) but I needed something to do while at hockey :)

Hope you enjoyed a sneak peek at something new and if you are free on Sunday, June 1st come by and check out mynew Cattie Kick off event.

Scrapbooker's pages

Last week was also my scrapbook club meeting on Friday.  Because things have been a little "crazy" around here I opted for a "Sketch club". 

I found this Basic Gray sketch of a scrapbook page and each person adapted the sketch to their photos or theme.

I loved everyone's pages so I asked if I could snap a shot to share with you.  I'd definitely do this again if my club ladies are willing :)

Thanks for being understanding of my crazy life and for making such great pages!

Cardmaker's Club projects

Last week I got back in to the swing of things with a fun Cardmaker's club. I had requests to teach the Shaving Cream technique and something with the Circle Card thinlits.

I shared how to make an extended card with a special folded flap to add a message .

And on the second card I shared some tips and tricks how to add Designer Series paper to the Circle Card base.

And last but not least the shaving cream technique with the birthday stamp set Another Great Year.

If you are interested in trying out a stamp club or would like to join my new groups starting in September contact me.  We do a minimum of 3 projects and one of them is a technique page.  I try to share new products and new techniques as well as each month.  Come check it out in June :)

Weekly Specials

Happy Tuesday!  It's usually a Monday when I'm saying this but because of yesterday's holiday I'm all turned around!

Hope you had a fantastic day off with your family.  We had a shopping day (because it was supposed to rain and shopping is a good inside activity) and we needed a few new clothes for my growing boys.

Andrew's grade 9 celebration is coming up and Nathan is heading off to outdoor school this week so we were in desperate need of a shopping trip.  I was lucky as both of them were on good days and it wasn't too painful for them. 

Believe it or not Andrew picked these handsome new threads and despite his detest for purple he actually AGREED with me that the purple looked better with the his gray suit (HE PICKED OUT)Shocking I know!

Plus a few other firsts such as a REAL TIE (Nathan picked it out) and it even has a small pattern on it!!  WHOA!  Now to hold on and hope he doesn't grow too much before June 5th :)

Okay, now on to some stamping business which I'm sure is why you checked in!

Here are the weekly specials and time is a ticking on the retired list items.

Remember retiring items are all while supplies last.
