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.

New Events added:

 

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

RSVP/details

 

(I may add another class in August, but I'm unsure of my schedule. Day classes are easier add-ons in summer. Any interest? Requests?)

 

 

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!!

 

Don't forget the specials going on through the end of July! Click here.

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

She used the beloved Painted Harvest set.

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

(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.)

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

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.

Thinlits Versatility!

 

Before I share my project with you, I have fabulous news!

 

Yesterday I earned enough points for NEXT YEAR'S CRUISE to the Greek Isles!!!

SO EXCITING!!!

 

Thank you so much for YOUR part in helping me earn it!!

 

 

And.......we are 33 days from our Alaskan Cruise!

It seems so unreal!

 

 


 

 

Ok, so back to the real world. ;)

 

I had a fun New Catalog Open House last week!

 

As promised, we used the amazing Broadway Birthday bundle--in colors specific to the suite:

 

Broadway Bound Suite, pg 68, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

We used the thinlits a little differently here--simply embossing with it for one piece, in addition to cutting another one out....

 

 

Here's the thinlit we used, along with the outside frame that's cut out.

(We stamped the inside white piece for our card.)

 

IMG_6252

 

 

We EMBOSSED the Basic Black cardstock with the new Embossing Mats.

 

So the black frame has embossed circles rather than circles cut out of it (like the white frame).

 

We cut around the outside frame with our Paper Snips.

 

Broadway Bound Suite, pg 68, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

 

Here's a video to show you how it's done--with the new Embossing Mats from Stampin' Up!:

(It makes our thinlits so versatile!!)

 

 

 

I have one more quick mention for you.

 

We ALSO used the Stamparatus for this card--the dots on WISH.

It's so great!!

 

But I have to be honest that I really don't think the Stamparatus is needed for it!

 

WISH is so big, and the set is photopolymer, so it's pretty easy to line up!

 

 

Here's my supply list for this card:

Big Shot
$110.00

 

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 

 

Have a wonderful day!!

 

 

ps: Does everyone realize the Fourth of July is a week from today????

 

That's just shocking to me!!

Somehow I keep thinking there's another week in there!

 

With that in mind, our next Craft the Night Away is also next week: Saturday, July 7, 6pm-midnight. RSVP HERE

Luggage Tags & Lanterns

 

We are UNDER 30 DAYS til our cruise!!

 

 

If we're friends on facebook, you may have seen this pic already:

 

My travel packet!

 

I got our travel packet in the mail this week!

And I had to sit down for a little light reading. :)

 

 

We got some cool luggage tags and our lanyards we need for entrance into specific Stampin' Up! events on the ship.

 

These are pretty typical at SU! events.

From the first moment of our first trip--to DC--Todd has called them LANTERNS.

 

haha. He cracks me up!

 

We can't go anywhere without our lanterns!

 

Luggage Tags & Lanterns! ;)

 

 

 

 

Another item in our travel packet was a standup daily itinerary/suggestions.

 

IMG_6228

 

 

Let me show you my favorite part:

IMG_6226

 

"Here are a few other items we recommend you pack:"

It's not just a rumor!!! :D

First line:

  • "Extra room in your luggage for Stampin' Up! goodies"

 

Aaaaahhhh!!!! It's not just a rumor!!!!

 

I LOVE IT!!!!

 

 

 

Hey--do you have a free morning tomorrow?

 

I'm having the other half of my New Catalog Open House tomorrow, 9:30am-12:30pm.

 

Feel free to stop by!
