Goodbye!

Hello Stampers!  Well, today is the last day for the 2015 - 2016 Annual catalog and the Occasions catalog both!  I know that I will certainly miss several of the retiring stamp sets and other products, but I really look forward to the new stuff!  

Here is a card that I made using two of the retiring stamp sets that I will miss the most, Swallowtail and Petite Pairs!

So, with a new catalog that means out with the old and in with the new!  I will be holding my annual stamp sale this year with several members of my team!  It will be a really big sale this year!

It will be held on Saturday, June 18th at Faith Lutheran Church in Oakville,  The sale will run from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  There will be two free make n' takes, one for you to keep and one to make for us to donate to Ronald McDonald House!  Plus, a percentage of all money made will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities!

You won't want to miss this sale!  Please ask if you have any questions!

May scrapbook class

Hello Stampers!  Every month I hold a scrapbook class during the day.  I love this class because I always get at least one page done each month!  Now by no means does this keep me caught up!  If you scrapbook and have kids you will certainly understand this!    And since I'm the one running this class, I get to create scrapbook pages that I need!  

This month I thought I would need a Mother's Day page!  So this is what I created:

IMG_6489-001

Isn't it pretty?  I don't usually put titles on the pages so that they can use the pages for anything they want!  

If you would like to attend class this month it will be:

Thursday, May 12th  10:00 a.m.  (First Baptist Church - Arnold)

Can't make it to class, then I will make up a kit for you!  The kit or class either one are only $8!  

Thanks for stopping by!

2016 - 2017 Catalog Pre-order

Hello Stampers!  Well, I received my pre- order from the new catalog!  Since I attended OnStage in Salt Lake City last month, we were able to order some of the new products before other demonstrators.  I recorded a video of me opening my box!  Take a look!

 

I absolutely LOVE these new In-colors!  I have already been playing with them!  

As a demonstrator, we also were able to place another order starting today of some other items!  You will have to keep checking back to see all of the projects I have been busy creating!

Would you like to receive some of the new items too?  Did you know that if you join my team this month, you will get to pick any of the pre-order items in your kit!  Yep!  You will get the products before the general public!  Too fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

May card classes

Hello Stampers!  I can't believe it is May already!  Where has this year gone so far???  Spring is flying by too!  Both of my girls have finals this week and then next week starts summer vacation!  I'm so ready though to have both of them at home again!

I wanted to show you the cards that we will be making in this month's card classes.  One of the cards that we are making is made using a stamp set that will be retiring at the end of this month.  The other two use stamp sets that will be carried over into the new catalog!  

Speaking of the new catalog, I'm loving it!  I really love the new in-colors.  I made a video of me opening up my preorder box.  I will get it edited and added here tomorrow.

Back to this month's cards!
