Club, class, and product share information

Hello friends!

I had a busy weekend but I did find time to peruse my summer calendar and set up dates for clubs and classes starting in July. Plus, I'm offering a product share again this year. There's something for everyone!

Product share
It’s a product share time---get a 6x12” piece of every Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the 2014-2015 Stampin’ Up annual catalog, including specialty DSPs on page 184  (you'll get a full 12x12" of each of the Typeset patterns) and a selection of coordinating ribbons along with an assortment of clothespins and sequins. If you were to purchase all of these items on your own, your cost would be $160!  The cost of this share is $35.  The 6x12” inch pieces are perfect for card-making and scrapbooking. Never heard of a product share?  It's a great way to purchase a little sampling of a lot of products at an affordable price; click here for more information. There are 4 members in each share. Contact me ASAP to reserve your spot in this share!

Clubs
There are 2 options both beginning in July:
  •  a 6 month techniques/tools/fancy folds club, July through December
  • 4 month Christmas card, July through October
Club members meet once a month and each receive hostess benefits once during the club (their choice of $25 in free catalog items!). They commit to placing minimum orders each month the club meets (minimum $25 for technique club and $35 for Christmas club); club provides a great way to slowly build crafting supplies--pay yourself instead of me! Another perk-- club members are invited to my annual free Hostess Appreciation event where I get to thank past hostesses by spoiling them!

In the 6-month club you'll learn a variety of techniques, use crafting tools, and make cards with "fancy folds"; hostesses can choose specific projects or techniques. The Christmas club will make 4 Christmas cards each club sessions and have 16 beautiful hand-stamped cards ready to be mailed before December even arrives! Space is limited in each club. Reserve your spot today!
Tentative club dates (can be changed to accommodate members schedules)
Techniques/tools club - July 28, August 25, September 22, Oct-Nov-Dec TBD
Christmas club - July 14, August 18, September 15, October 27

My Paper Pumpkin - The "why"

 Hello friends!

On July 5th, 11am to 1pm, I am holding a class where we will use exclusive My Paper Pumpkin (MPP) stamps to create several different cards. The MPP stamps are included in the monthly kits and are only available to MPP subscribers.
Become a My Paper Pumpkin subcriber - click here to learn more

I'm having a lot of fun with the monthly kits and want to showcase the exclusive stamps that come with them. I hope you'll join me if you live in the Baltimore/Annapolis area! The class tuition is $10 or free with a minimum $25 order. RSVP now!

Who would enjoy subscribing to My Paper Pumpkin?
3-month subscription - click here to purchase
  • People who like surprises - Each month is something new and different. The stamps included in My Paper Pumpkin are not the same stamps you can order. They are exclusive to each month's kit, and if you like exclusives, this is for you! 
  • Busy people who still want {or need!} crafting time - These projects are meant to be quick, giving you a 30-minute or less time frame to make something fun. Nap time? After the kids are in bed? Yep! The thinking and gathering is done for you, all you have to do is put it together. 
6-month subscription - click here to purchase
  • Not-busy people - Do you know someone on maternity bed rest or taking it easy for any other reason that could use something pretty to make? Yep, this is for them! 
  • Beginning stampers - The kits are already put together and come with instructions and photos. All you need is adhesive and scissors, and you're set! 
  • Advanced stampers - These kits are perfect for getting your crafting mojo back from a creative slumps. No thinking required, just assemble! Or change it up with what you already have and make the projects your own. 
  • Someone with limited space - Each kit comes with a photopolymer stamp set and a Stampin' Spot (or two!). Neither take up much space, and once you use or give away the cards or project, you can store several stamp sets and inks in one box. And since all you need is scissors and adhesive, that can even be stored in the box, too! (The box is only approximately 6"x9" so it's a space saver.) 
  • Someone who wants to build up their stamp supplies without a lot of cash - Again, you get stamps and inks to keep forever- and Stampin' Up! has promised to not duplicate the same ink color in a year. That's at least 12 different colors of ink, coming right to your door! For only $19.95/month this is a great solution. (shipping is included in the cost!)
12-month subscription - click here to purchase
  • if a kit isn't to your liking - it makes a perfect gift, already wrapped up and ready to go!!! 
  • Plus..... you can order My Paper Pumpkin as a gift subscription! You can gift a kit for 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month subscription to anyone in the United States! There's more--with the 12 month subscription you save $2 per month and qualify for $30 in free hostess benefits. Who would like a gift subscription? How about a busy mom who has limited time to be crafty? How about someone on bed rest or in bed with a chronic illness? How about a college-bound relative or friend? How about your sister or mom or best friend or anyone YOU would want to get together with for a craft night?! 
Stamping is fun--especially when the projects are prepped and ready to go any time of day or night.

Graduation card

Hi friends!

My family and I were invited to a graduation party today in honor of our friend's son who graduated from high school. His school colors are red and white.....and this is the card I whipped up this morning (inspired by a card I saw on pinterest).



What do you think of my card? I think I like the original better--maybe it's the textures and colors that go together better? I am right or wrong??

Stamping is fun!

    Quilt block patterns for cards -- Love them!

    Hi friends!

    My step-mother serves her church family in many ways--she's on the Wednesday lunch crew, attends bible study and Sunday school, and the quilting group--plus she lends a hand here and there. She likes making cards and has become the "card lady" sending get well wishes and birthday wishes to church members she know through her various activities.

    A while back she asked me if I could find designs for cards that had quilt patterns. Her quilting group wanted to acknowledge good wishes sent their way. I started a Pinterest board just for quilt cards I came across, planning to hold a card class eventually.

    I finally got my act together and held the class earlier this week. The cards I created followed some of the patterns I had pinned but feature the new Moonlight designer series paper (DSP) paper stack in Stampin' Up's 2014-2015 catalog.

    The patterns I used are made with a 1" square punch, mostly cut in half on the diagonal; although for some patterns the squares are further cut to get even smaller triangles--the diagonal pieces are cut in half.

    I glued the pieces directly onto the grid paper placemats Stampin Up sells, to help keep the designs aligned, then cut them out and adhered the design to cardstock before embossing with various embossing folders.

    Magical escape---with attitude adjustment!

    Hi friends!

    I had one of THOSE days....everything seemed to conspire to make it a rotten day. Know what I mean? I got home, grumbled at few family members and knew that I needed an attitude adjustment. I pulled out the April 2014 My Paper Pumpkin kit, Framed Love, that had been waiting (probably just for a day like today) and just as the box promised, I was moments away from a magical escape!




    Look at these wonderful goodies all prepped and just waiting for me to spend a few minutes with them....





    And then the crafting began....and the day wasn't so rotten!


    Real magic happened! 20 minutes later I had this cute little frame--was looking forward to taking it to work and brightening my desk. And I was smiling!


    My Paper Pumpkin pre-paid subscriptions are now available in 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-month chunks (buy a 12 month pre-paid subscription, save $2 per month AND receive $30 in FREE products as hostess benefits!). Check out the details here. Only subscribers get the exclusive stamps in these kits--and as a special perk, only subscribers can order past kits or kit refills.

    Stamping is fun!
