Holiday Catalogue Extravaganza

Just a quick note to let you know I'm still alive :)

Two words - Parents coming!

I know many of you all know what that means but these past three days have been super busy with planning and prepping for my Holiday Catalogue Extravaganza, getting ready for visitors plus the usual back to school/routine crazies!

If you can stop by tonight between 6-9pm
 1) You may get to meet my parents (ha ha) and 
2) you can create a Christmas card using the new Christmas Cheer stamp set.

I LOVE this new embossing folder called Filigree Frame!

Plus you will create a cute treat box with the new Gift Box punch board.

Lots of classes to sign up for, Stampin UP Bingo and many more samples will be here tomorrow!

All qualifying orders received by tomorrow when the holiday catalogue goes live with receive your package of the Cut and Ready card bases (value $5.95)!  I am discovering the ease of using these gems!

Contact me to place your order or use the hostess code UEVBSXSW                  .

Sneak peek at Sept WOW Class

At my hostess night last night I shared the Sept WOW project and I wanted to post a sneak peek to my blog followers.  This is a peek into Christmas and will be a fantastic hostess gift, teacher present or for those of you that like to create handmade gifts.  Can you imagine that you could be DONE these gifts so early?

Date - Wed, Sept 17th
Time - 6-9

 This WOW class idea came from a good friend of mine and fellow demo, Lisa Althouse of LA Stamper and she provided me pics and measurements of her samples and I knew this was going to be a project you would love.

I will post more photos tomorrow of all the goodness inside this box.  Eeek, I'm so excited about this class!

Weekly Specials and a confession

Here are the latest specials from Stampin UP and I have an order going in this week so don't miss out and contact me before Thursday to order.

 I (heart) the Vanilla coaster board as it has a great weight to it and easily goes through our Big Shot!

I'm so excited that tonight is the start of two Hostess Appreciation nights.  I have Stampin UP goodies for everyone, brownies are in the oven and special treats too!  My haul of retired stamps are priced and ready for those fantastic hostesses  and club members to check out!  

If you want to be a part of my hostess night next year be sure to contact me to join a club or host a private class!

Now for my confession.  After many years of being a beloved Blackberry user I have jumped ship.  I have guilted many of my former bbm buddies for jumping ship and now I'm joining them as well.  Big learning curve going on here and I'm missing my keys on my phone.   I know I'll get used to it but so far I have had many variations of Sobeys - So eye, Donets, soy eye  . . .  geesh :)

Keeping the plastic on for now :) but any recommendations for cases are greatly appreciated.

Kinda Eclectic fun

Hope you are enjoying the dwindling days of summer :(  It's so sad to realize that summer is coming to an end.  I can't believe I'm even creating Christmas cards and crafting in fall colours!   

Well, we have to take advantage of the sun while we still can!  Yesterday we went on a family bike ride to Fish Creek park but when I came home I made this card.

 The colour is a bit off in this photo, but it's Basic Gray, Basic Black and Sahara Sand.  Plus a little Cherry Cobbler for that pop of colour.  This is another one of the make n'take cards for my Hostess Appreciation night this week!  I can't wait to have a great night with my stamping friends.

If you want to be a part of next year's hostess group contact me to book a fun private class or join one of my exclusive cardmaking or scrapbooking club.  We have a great time each month creating great cards, scrapbook pages and more!

Weekly Specials and lots of re-entry!


We just arrived back from our camping trip to Radium, BC (yes my second camping trip) and we had a blast.  I'll post some pics tomorrow once I find the camera in the mountains of laundry and un-packing.  I guess I'm seeing the downsides to camping now- everything must be washed because it smells like the camp fire.

Until then these fantastic weekly deals will have to do:)

 Plus today they added some pretty sweet new deals on the Clearance Rack too!

Shop here to get all the goodies now before they are gone!

Christmas in August . . .

And I haven't lost my marbles!

Believe it or not I have been working on some Christmas cards for customers and it's weird to be even thinking of Christmas when it's 28 degrees outside!  

 I just had to share with you one sample I created with a stamp set that is soon to be gone.

Joyful Christmas is only available until August 27th so if you are like me and LOVE this poinsettia especially when it's coloured with our new Blendabilities be sure to order it before it is gone for good!

Happy Mail from Stampin UP!

Don't you just love when you get something in the mail unexpectedly?  Well, that happened to me yesterday when I received this card from Stampin Up Canada!  Pretty amazing, eh?

I can't believe I have been a demonstrator for SEVEN YEARS!  It has been an incredible ride meeting amazing people from all over North America with my customers, downline and fellow demonstrators.  Many of them I would NEVER have met if it weren't for Stampin UP.  Experiencing trips to places I never imagined I would be able to go and take my family, participating in Conventions and business trips to many cities and even presenting to over 5000 people . . . simply unbelievable! 

Thank you Stampin UP but more importantly, thank you to my friends who are on this journey with me!  I look forward to a fantastic year of being your demonstrator!
