Apple Cider Coffee Carrier Option

Apple Cider Coffee Carrier Option

As I mentioned yesterday, I am not a fan of coffee, so I wanted to get creative with the mini coffee carriers and find other options for using them besides just coffee.  These make such a fun way to give a little gift to someone, no matter the time of year!  Check out this cute fall option!

2020 In Color Club Details

Have you participated in our In color club before? The In Color Club is such a great way to get all the new In Color supplies and build your collection!  You commit to participating for 5 months, and then each month you will be assigned 1 In Color.

As an In Color Club member, for $48.45* each month for 5 months (June – October), you will receive:

  • Blend Markers (1 light/1 dark) each month in your In Color of the month (except Bumble Bee – that color is not offered in the Blend Markers)
  • One Pack of 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock per month in your In Color of the month
  • One Ink Pad per month in your In Color of the month
  • One Ink refill in your In Color of the month

  • 4 Printed Card Bases & 4 Printed Envleops in your In Color of the month
  • A handmade card or project from me using your In Color of the month (an idea to get your mind creating!)

PLUS – one of the five months you will be able to choose $20.00 in free merchandise for free! (Hostess benefits)

*Price calculated to include sales tax and shipping from Stampin’ Up! to me. If you do not live locally, there will be an additional $8.40 charge each month for shipping.

At the end of 5 months (June – October) you will own all the In Color supplies as well as some great ideas and $20.00 in supplies from your hostess benefits.

Being a part of this club does not require any attendance, those who live close can pick up their goodies each month and those living long-distance can pay an extra fee of $8.40 each month to have the supplies shipped to them (details above).

Payment must be received by the 9th of each month beginning June 9. I will place the order on the 10th and contact you as soon as they arrive. If it is easiest for you, you are welcome to give me a credit card number to keep on file, which I will charge each month.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me and ask!

I hope you will join us for the 2020 In Color Club!  Contact me to join the In Color Club!

Retiring Stampin’ Up! Items Have Been Announced

Retiring Stampin’ Up! Items Have Been Announced

As we look forward to the new catalog with anticipation, that means some items need to retire to make way for new items to come in.  Stampin’ Up! has posted the items that will be retiring from the annual catalog as well as the spring catalog.  You’re going to want to check these items out as they are available while supplies last, or until June 2, whichever comes first.

You will note that some items are on sale, with one really neat item at an 85% discount!  It’s a great bargain!

I also want to point out that Snail adhesive is retiring, and of course we will be loosing a set of In Colors.  You may want to consider stocking up on some of those items.

Using Retired Stampin’ Up! Fabric

Using Retired Stampin’ Up! Fabric

How many of you have Stampin’ Up! fabric from way back when we sold that?  Who has a bag made by my mom using that fabric?  I know some of you do!

I pulled out my stash of SU! fabric (I didn’t realize how big of a stash I still have!) in order to make sew homemade masks.Continue reading

Sneak Peek & Extra Stamp of the Month Class

Sneak Peek & Extra Stamp of the Month Class

Stampin’ Up! is offering us a sneak peek into the new catalog (coming out in June) by allowing us to purchase items from the new Ornate Garden Suite.  This looks like such a pretty suite!  There are so many items you can choose from.  The suite includes two different stamp sets, two sets of dies (beautiful!), an embossing folder, Designer Series Paper, gems, and ribbon.  I think everyone is going to find something they like in this suite!

Check out the Ornate Garden Suite!

In fact, I am going to add an extra Stamp of the Month class this month to include some of these items!  Because we can’t meet in person, I will make these up into kits (like I normally do for long-distance Stamp of the Month classes) and then give instructions for assembling the cards at home.  That means you do not have to be local to take this class!  You can choose the option to have me mail this class to you!

Please note: This class only involves two items from the suite, not the entire suite!  Here are the stamp set and dies that will be used in the Stamp of the Month class, and below the picture are all the class details.

Ornate Style stamp set

Ornate Style Stamp of the Month Class

We will be creating exclusively with the Ornate Style stamp set.  Those who choose, may include the stamp set and corresponding Ornate Layers Dies with the class for a reduced class price. You will make 5 cards in this class.

How:  Once I receive the ordered items, I will make kits with paper supplies you need to make the cards.  (You will use your own stamp set, inks, and adhesives to put the cards together.)  I will give you instructions for assembling your cards.
When:  I will place the supply order on April 10 and then contact you when the supplies have come in and kits are ready for pick-up, or I will mail the kits at that time to those who have chosen that option.)
Cost:  Class your way – choose an option below

  • $33.00.00 Stamp set & Class
  • $64.00 Stamp set, Ornate Layers Dies, and class
  • $8.40 Shipping if you would like to join the class long distance

RSVP:  by April 9 so I can order stamps/dies and have them in time for class
