Stampin pad family.header

 

Want a great deal?

 

Would you like a discount on your stampin' stuff?

 

Want to supplement your income?

 

Do you love to teach?

 

Wanna spend more time with me??? :D haha!

 

 

If you answered yes to JUST ONE of those, it's the PERFECT time to sign up to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!!

 

 

This month you get to add your choice of full color collection of ink pads (10) to your starter kit--FREE!!!

 

Stampin pad family promotion--click to view/print

 

In your $99 (+ tax, no shipping) kit, you'll receive $192.50 of product! ($125 of any product you like, $67.50 ink pad family)

 

THAT'S a GREAT deal!!

And there is NO requirement to hold classes.

 

You get a discount on all your stampin' purchases.

 

And if you WANT to supplement your income or LOVE to teach, you certainly can make that happen!

 

 

If you just wanna hang with me...haha!...well, thanks!

 

I'd love to!!

 

 

I meet with my team every month--often twice a month!

And we have a great time!

 

We swap cards, stamp together and "talk shop" and whatever else is on our minds.

 

Our second night is a craft night--bring your own projects. 

 

It helps us work on things that need our attention (thank yous, birthdays, etc) and gives more time to ask me--or other demos--questions.

 

We bond. ;)

 

 

I LOVE MY DAZZLING DEMOS TEAM!

And I'd LOVE for you to join it!

 

If you're thinking about it, ask me.

No pressure.

 

In the meantime, check out this video that shows off all our colors:

 

 

 

Here are the color families you can check out:

(all 10 In Colors are bundled for this promotion only)

In Colors

 

 

If you’re ready to sign up, click the link here to join:

(Suggestion: write down all the item numbers of the product you'd like; the process is much like placing an online order. Your list should include $125 of product or less--besides the set of ink pads, as you can't go over and pay the difference like you can with hostess benefits.)

 

 


 

 

BONUS

 

My FAVORITE DSP in the catalog is the 6x6 Color Collections at the bottom of pg 191.

  • Core Colors (Brights, etc) = 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colors.
  • In Colors = 4 each of 2 double-sided designs in 5 colors.

  Regals Collection DSP.Blackberry Bliss

 

 

They're my style, and I'm sure I'll use them more than any other design.

 

BUT--they're not part of the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE deal! :(

SO--I'm gonna make my OWN deal!

 

When you place a $75 order using my hostess code UK7BCY3D, I will give you a 6x6 DSP Color Collection of your choice!

 

Here's the deal:

  1. Place a $75 online order using hostess code UK7BCY3D by July 31. (Make sure you click APPLY after entering it in the box at the bottom left in the shopping bag.)
  2. If your order is $150 or more, don't use the code; then you can claim your own hostess benefits and you'll still receive my gift. (see #3 & 4)
  3. EMAIL ME your choice of free DSP. (Tell me the color collection and item number, so there's no confusion.) I'll let you know I got it--with the exception of July 20-29; I will be unavailable to return emails/texts/calls during that time.
  4. Your free DSP will mail to you or be available to pick up early August after I place the order.

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 

 

Here are all the possible free DSP Collections from me:

(Click on any collection to view each color included.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have a MAGNIFICENT July--full of SAVINGS & FREEBIES!!!

So--I keep forgetting to share this deal with you!!

WISH!!!

 

I have a REALLY FUN card to show you today!

 

BUT FIRST--

 

Starting tomorrow, "my office will be closed" until Monday, 7/30.

 

If you have questions, ask them now! :)

 

Or feel free to email me questions anytime; but after today, I just won't get back to you until the 30th.

 

 

Extra Special:

WHILE I'M GONE (7/19 - 7/29)...with every $50 you order using hostess code UK7BCY3D, I'll send you a $5 gift certificate to be used in August.

 

ALL other specials are STILL VALID through the end of July.

See this post for details.

 


 

New Events added:

 

MOMMY & ME CLASS - Tuesday, 8/7, 10am - 11:30am (2 M&M spots left, or max 4 people)

RSVP/details

CRAFT THE NIGHT AWAY!!! - Saturday, 9/15, 6pm - midnight

RSVP/details

 

 

More September classes will be added later.

 

  


 

Ok, here's my FUN CARD!!

 

Broadway Birthday bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Check out the detail:

Broadway Birthday bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

This was fun! :D

 

Between this card and the ones we made in club this month, I went through a WHOLE PACK OF METALLIC PEARLS!!!

 

I made it through the last club with 1 to spare!

241 pieces gone! ;)

 

(Of course, SOME of them MAY have ended up on my floor since they slid off the packaging so easily. :/ )

 

And btw, I didn't just randomly decide where to put these metallic pearls.

 

You know how the thinlits have poke holes in them to get the cut piece out?

 

Do you also remember they leave little impressions behind?

Well, I just used those spots to place my pearls!

 

 

Ok details here:

Big Shot
$110.00

 

 

 

Have a fabulous day!!

4 DAYS AWAY!!!

 

It's starting to feel a little bit more real!!

 

We did some packing and heavy planning this weekend for our Alaskan Cruise!

 

AAAHHH!!

So exciting!!

 

 

So here's my work in progress for my Cruise swap:

Work in progress!, Alaskan Cruise swap, www.dazzledbystamping.com

My plan is to finish them today.

 

I made a similar card for my Dazzling Demos swap, but this one has an adorable change up.

 

I'll show you soon.

 

 

Oh--I wanted to show you something else really interesting, too--and shocking.

 

Part of the travel packet we received from Stampin' Up! a few weeks ago was a standup daily itinerary.

 

The back of one of the pages was a simple map of Alaska....

 

IMG_6291

 

Well, I knew we were just staying at the very edge of the state, but I thought we were kinda going toward the middle of the edge--like just above the pic of the boat.

 

But we're barely going (northwest, I think) of the red star!!!

 

SUCH a huge state!

 

 

We're so looking forward to enjoying God's creation on this trip!

The scenery...the wildlife....

 

I KNOW it's gonna be breathtaking!

And I just can't wait!

 

 

Speaking of which...I know everyone wants to see pics!

And we'll share. For sure.

 

But it probably won't be until we're back.

We won't have cell service unless we're in a port.

 

However, I can see Todd not wanting to wait, and he'll make a point to post something sooner than that.

 

So if you wanna see stuff sooner, find me on Facebook.

I'll be with him. ;)

 

 

I'm unavailable starting Thursday.

If you need something before I leave, contact me before Thursday; otherwise I'll be in touch when we're back in town.

 

 

Don't forget the special deals going on during this magnificent month of July!

Painted Harvest in Summer

 

I have another Dazzling Demos swap for you!

 

This one's from Nadine Stolt:

 

Painted Harvest, created by Nadine Stolt, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

She used the beloved Painted Harvest set.

 

But you MAY NOT recognize it without the adorable hedgehog face on it! ;)

 

 

Love this look, though.

 

 

It was kinda funny...Nadine and I BOTH used the same stamp from Timeless Textures for our background. :D

 

 

It's definitely just one of those gotta have it stamps!

 

 

 

There's still time to be part of our team FOR A GREAT DEAL!!

Introducing Little Elephant!

 

I LOVE THIS GUY!!

Little Elephant bundle, Timeless Textures, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I chose these colors straight from the pack of Glitter Enamel Dots! :D

Rooted in Nature sunset

 

Good morning stampers!!

 

11 days until we ship off to ALASKA!!!!

So excited!!!

I'm not really sure when it's gonna seem like a reality. :)

 

 

Ok, I realized I forgot to show you pics from a couple cards we made at my clubs last month.

 

A lot of sponging and the Stamparatus...

 

Rooted in Nature, www.dazzledbystamping.com
top to bottom: Highland Heather, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green

 

Rooted in Nature, www.dazzledbystamping.com
top to bottom: Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Mango Melody

 

This type of card always makes me happy.

And I love the font.

 

The sponged section is popped with Dimensionals.

 

I wanted the trunk of the tree extended.

So originally, I had stamped it twice--once on the white base, once on the sponged stitched square.

 

THEN (I think it was) Angela stamped them BOTH at the same time on top of each other!!

 

Saves a step!!

And all you have to do is mount the sponged square a little lower than where you stamped it! (simply to cover the gap left behind from stamping 2 different layers at the same time.)

 

 

Why didn't I think of that???

 

I love time-saving tips!!

 

 

Here's all I used:

Easy Easel Card!

 

Have you seen an easel card before?

 

Here's one!

 

Easel Card with Animal Outing, www.dazzledbystamping.com

Easel Card with Animal Outing, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

It was easy to make!

I'll tell you how in a sec.

 

But can we talk about how beautiful this Soft Sea Foam color is???

 

I love it.

 

And yes.

I used the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Again.

 

And yes.

I colored.

Stampin' Blends.

Smoky Slate combo + Color Lifter.

 

Stampin' Blends make me look like I can color.

I like.

 

And yes.

I'm somewhat falling in love with this rhino.

Somewhat.

 

 

Ok--back to the easel card.

 

You can make them any size you'd like.

 

You need:

  1. a full card, scored in half WITH the top half scored in half, too
  2. an additional piece of cardstock, the size of the card front
  3. some part of your design popped on the inside of the card base to prop the easel

 

I used:

  1. a piece of cardstock 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2" and 2 3/4" (but you could make a 4" square card with a 4" x 8" pc, scored at 4" and 2"...or any number of possibilities)
  2. my additional pc was 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (the second example would be a 4" x 4" pc)
  3. Tailored Tag Punch piece popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals (you could also just use an embellishment to prop it for display)

 

If you can't tell in my second pic, the second score line is creased toward the INSIDE of the card.

 

I used Tear & Tape on the front of the tucked in section.

The BOTTOM of the card front is attached to the Tear & Tape.

 

When it's NOT propped up, the card just looks like a normal card.

 

The card front is completely designed.

 

 

Here's the complete list of products I used:

Hey--we're 2 days from our Craft the Night Away! 6pm-midnight

A Second Look--Varied Vases

 

Morning people!

Happy Monday!!

 

It's gonna be a weird week with the holiday right in the middle of it!

 

Did you take the whole week off to avoid the weirdness??

 

Todd usually does, but THIS year he chose to take off toward the end of the month for some strange reason! ;)

 

Coutdown to Alaska = 18 DAYS!!

It seems unreal!

 

 

So my sample for you today is from my Open House.

 

I needed a little convincing to fall in love with Varied Vases.

 

I passed it by at first glance.

THEN I kept seeing samples!

 

Well....let me take a second look! :D

Suddenly it was a need!!

"need."

 

Here's what we made:

Varied Vases bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

One of the things I love about this bundle is it's a PUNCH!!

In general, I prefer punches to thinlits.

 

Another bonus is ALL THE POSSIBILITIES with this set!!

Each vase shape has 3 "finishes": outline, solid and designed.

 

Varied vases pic
 

It's just adorable!

 

My colors here are Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and Night of Navy.

I used my Color Coach to help me get there.

 

I didn't have the Subtles Collection of DSP, so my strip at the bottom is actually Gorgeous Grape.

 

Varied Vases bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com


 

And have you noticed yet?

I just can't seem to get away from using that AMAZING POLKA DOT TULLE RIBBON!!!

 

I hope you don't mind. ;)

 

Here's all you need to make this card:

 

 

 

 

Before you move on with your day, makes sure you check out my post from yesterday!
