Religious Stamp-A-Stack Cards

Hello Everyone,

I hope back to school went smoothly for all.  It's been so busy here in my house that I can't believe it's already mid-September. Since I have a few minutes, I thought I'd share the cards that we made yesterday at my first of three Christmas Stamp-A-Stacks (before time gets away from me again...lol).  If you missed yesterdays workshop but like what you see, please contact me and perhaps we can arrange a make up date.  It's also not too late to sign up for the other two workshops, if you'd like the details let me know.

Hostess Benefits IMPROVED!

WOW!  With the launch of the new catalogue there are so many things that I want and NEED to share with you!  Hopefully I will be able to get it all in this week!

First I want to start off with the NEW & IMPROVED hostess benefit program!


Our new Hostess Benefits Program features more options for our hostesses, with hostess dollars that can be applied either to exclusive hostess items or to other catalogue merchandise and the opportunity to purchase any item out of the catalogue at 50% off (starting at a $525 workshop)! Stampin' UP! is now offering more $$ to spend on anything from the catalogue OR you can stretch your dollar and redeem it for any of the pre-selected hostess sets for a fraction of the cost. So that means you are not just limited to the hostess sets and can pick ANYTHING you want!

Contact me for more details and to book your workshop!

I'm Back!

WOW! I can't believe we're already into the second week of June.  I am so sorry that I haven't posted for the entire month of May.  Things have just been extremely hectic here.  I've been getting ready for craft shows that a friend and I are participating in, we're getting some landscaping done (which is a nightmare in itself), and of course with the nicer weather and summer upon us there are family responsibilites.

There are just so many things to get caught up on and I don't know where to start....I'll post a couple of times a week until I'm caught up..lol.

Here are the scrapbook layouts that my group did last month.


Valentines Day Page

March Page


Both these pages were created with my My Digital Studio program as a template, then we recreated it. 

Thanks for looking!

Easter Treats

Happy Belated Easter Everyone!  Boy it's been so hectic here that I can't believe it's already Wednesday...no scratch that...I can't believe it's already almost MAY!  3 days left of these "April Showers"..."May Flowers" better be around the corner and well worth the wait!  Anyways, I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter weekend with family and friends, we sure did.  Here's a quick run down of our weekend...Friday we were at my in-laws' house for dinner (which is about half an hour away), Saturday we were at my parents' house (an hour away), Sunday we were back at my in-laws', and Monday we were back at my parents'.  Yep...we were literally all over the place this weekend!

Here's a look at what I prepared for my kids' for their classes...luckily I was a little prepared and had this done a couple of weeks before.  Ok fine, it wasn't my doing...lol...I borrowed the punch from my upline's upline and had to give it back so I HAD to get it all punched out, and once that was done I couldn't just leave the pieces laying around...3 pieces per basket x 70 kids =  A LOT of pieces!

I used the Petal Card Punch to punch out the shape and used three to assemble the basket.  I then punched out a small hole on both sides and used a wired string to create the handle.  These cute little baskets perfectly fit one chocolate coin and two eggs.  Here's a few more angles...




Supplies
Cardstock: various retired colours
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Pacific Point
Accessories: Petal Card Punch, 1/16" Circle Punch, Window Punch, Sticky Strip, wired string
