Happy Birthday to me 20% off Adhesive Sale!

This post will remain at the top of my blog until this sale is over!

Hello Stampers!  Well this Thursday, August 2nd, is my birthday, so we are going to celebrate together!

From now through next Monday, August 6th, I'm going to be running my adhesive sale again!  Any adhesive that you purchase during this week will be 20% off!  This does not include monthly club orders. 

Everything on page 177 of the current catalog is included, including the following:

fabric adhesive roll

glue dots

glue sticks

dimensionals

SNAIL

crystal effects

liquid glue

2 way glue pen

sticky strip

adhesive sheet

shaker frames

adhesive remover

A couple of important notes for you that were recently announced on the Stampin' Up! website:

Small Change to Snail Adhesive  July 30, 2012

We just wanted to give you a heads up that we’re switching the type of liner used in the Snail Adhesive. This new liner is tinted blue and thinner than the previous liner making the roll appear to have less adhesive. Rest assured that you’re still getting the same amount of adhesive; the only change is the liner itself due to the supplier no longer carrying the current liner.

Cost increase for 2-Way Glue Pen  June 27, 2012

Due to an unexpected cost increase from our supplier, the cost for the 2-Way Glue Pen will increase from $3.50 as listed in the current annual catalog to $4.50. This price increase will be applied starting June 27, 2012.

To take advantage of this special offer you must e-mail me your orders, do not order directly from my website!  You will only receive 20% off of the items listed above.  You will still pay tax and shipping charges.  Monthly club orders do not apply.  Redemption orders from my New Catalog Premiere do not apply.

Contact me if you have any questions!  This will remain at the top of my blog until the sale is over!

Halloween treat bag

Hello Stampers!  Today I want to show you the super fun make n' take that Alice Marie had for us at our last group meeting!  It's too fun!

P1110537She gave us each one of the new Gusseted Cellophane bags (127850) from the Holiday mini catalog.  We stamped the image on the Top Note die (113463) cut from the new Howlstooth and Scaringbone dsp (126906) from the Holiday mini catalog.  We also stamped little images from Spooky Bingo Bits stamp set (123944) on the new 7/8" Cotton ribbon (127844) that is in the Holiday mini catalog!  LOVE it!

We filled out bags with cheese balls!  Super cute!  Thanks Alice Marie for the great make n' take!

If you join our Dink It Up! group, you can make these super cute make n' takes with us each month!  Ask me how!

If you haven't received your copy of the Holiday mini catalog yet, let me know and I'll get one your way!

Door prizes and shares

Hello Stampers!  I think I am finally getting back in to the swing of things since returning home from Convention!  I'm still trying to get everything unpacked and organized.  I haven't done my make n' takes yet either.  They do give us time at Convention to complete our make n' takes, but I don't like to make them then because I feel rushed and don't usually do a good job.  So as I finish them, I will show you.

Today I would like to share with you some show n' tell items from our last Dink It Up! group meeting.

P1110528This is Anne with her door prize she made.  The gals take turns creating the door prize every month.  They come up with some really awesome projects!  Anne made this notebook. 

P1110471Here is Karen with the door prize that she made for the June meeting.  She took a metal pitcher and placed cards on sticks in it!  Very cool!

Now for some of the show n' tell items that they all brought:

P1110529Alice Marie made this wonderful dry erase frame.  LOVE it!

P1110531Here are some gorgeous cards that Lynn made.

P1110530Carol made this from a jar that Sarah brought to share to the last meeting.

P1110532Lynn created this beautiful ornament.  This same ornament is on the cover of our Holiday mini catalog!  Fantastic job Lynn!

P1110535This pretty candle was made by Carol I believe.  Very pretty!

Doesn't all of this make you want to join us at our next downline meeting so you can see all of these super creations in person?  Ask me how and find out about the super upcoming recruiting special in August!

Convention Day 3

Hello Stampers!  Well, Day 3 of Stampin' Up!'s Convention 2012 wasd another fun day!  It started off with more breakout classes.

I went to I Am Making Money presented by Pam Morgan.  We learned more about Stampin' Up!'s career plan. 

I went to I Am Having Fun presented by Shannon West.  She discussed ways to make our classes fun!

The day ended with our Closing Session.  We were so sad to see it come to an end.  Sara Douglass showed fun projects using jars. 

Carrie Cudney showed us ways to make handmade flowers, both out of fabric and paper.  They were beautiful and I can't wait to make some of these!

We ended with the announcement of the dates of next years Convention and free products for all!

What a great way to end Convention 2012! 

Want to join us next year?  I can show you how, and there is a super promotion coming up in August to anyone who joins as a demonstrator!  I can tell you how!

Convention highlights

Hello Stampers!  WOW!  Our first day in Salt Lake City was our registration day.  We got checked in and received these fantastic bags!

P1120313-001I'm not a huge yellow fan, but I love this and the Chevron design!

We got to shop at Momento Mall, where we buy our logo products.  Just look at this stash I brought home!

We also went to the Riverton Campus to take a tour.  This is the warehouse where they fill our orders.  What a beautiful facility!

Here I am with my downline and roomies!

Masculine birthday card

Hello Stampers!   Here is another swap that I made.  I usually find that the masculine cards are the first to go!

P1110544Each candle was run through the Big Shot and embossed before putting them on the card.  The flame is from the Blossom Petals Builder punch (121808).  Be sure to check back!  There are more swaps to show still!

Betsy's Blossom flower

Hello Stampers!  Besides all of the organized swaps that I signed up for, I also just make cards to swap with anyone.  This card was actually designed by my daughter Casie.  She used some of the leftover flowers from a different card.  Don't you think she did a great job?

P1110543-001She used the elegant lines embossing folder (119277) on the background.  The flower is the large image from Betsy's Blossoms stamp set (126004).  I love that stamp set!  It was then punched out using the Blossom punch (125603).

Check back tomorrow for more swaps!

Punch Art Santa Christmas card

Hello Stampers!  I joined another WOW Christmas card swap at Convention.  Here is my creation:

P1110541-001Isn't this fun? I stole most of the idea from a class I took with Heather Summers!  She is so creative!  I'm not going to list all of the punches I used on this card, so if you have questions please let me know!!

Quilled Christmas card

Hello Stampers!  As you are reading this, I'm at the annual Stampin' Up! Convention getting lots of ideas and inspiration!  When I return, I'll be sharing all kinds of information with you!  While I'm gone,  I'll be sharing my swaps that I'm taking with you!

P1110540-001I joined a WOW Christmas card swap and decided to try some quilling again!  It has been a long time since I've done this!  And it took forever to do all of the cards in my swap!!!  The designer series paper on the background is from the current catalog called Be of Good Cheer (126896).  I love this paper!
