Weekly Deals & Open House

Happy Tuesday!

I am planning an Open House for this coming Saturday, September 20 from 10:00-12:00.  Remember, no need to be here at 10, but just come anytime in that time frame.  I'll have lots of the new catalog goodies, and samples made with them, and you can get your chance to play by making a free make and take!  And of course, hot cider and treats!

Please let me know if you think you'll be able to make it, so I can plan accordingly.  I won't hold you to it, but it's nice to know what to expect!

Here are this week's Weekly Deals:

Wondrous Wreath

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying your Monday!  Last week I posted a video featuring the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set and coordinating framelits.  If you were viewing that post in your email, I hope you took a quick minute to click over here to my blog to watch the video.  If you didn't, here's that blog post again.  

As I said before, I was super hesitant to use this stamp set, as it looked "tricky."  Can you believe the genius that thought of the tabs!?  So smart!  I hope they continue this in the future with other non-symmetrical sets.

So after watching the video, I decided it was time to give it a shot.  I got out my stamp set and framelits and created this:

This was my first time lining it all up and it was easy!  With the help of the magnetic platform and photopolymer stamps, it made it almost fool proof!

First I stamped in crumb cake, then used soft suede for the darker leaves, then finished it off with cajun craze berries.  I love that it is a "Christmas" set that can be easily adapted to a fall (or other season) theme.

See that cute little greeting?  It's from "Good Greetings" and can be yours free, when you host a workshop of $300 or more.  Contact me today to snag your spot on my calendar.  We could even make this card at your workshop if you want!  Click on this link to see the entire stamp set, Good Greetings!  It's filled with all holidays and occasions, in this cute handwriting-inspired font.  

I topped off the wreath with a simple linen thread bow and done!  Oh and don't you love that Hardwood background?  It's such a versatile stamp itself!

Keep checking back for more inspiring ideas using this stamp set.  

If you are interested in ordering any of the supplies I used to make this card, click on the links below to add them to your Stampin' Up! shopping cart.  And don't forget the Hostess Code!

Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!

I have a guilty confession to make.

I bought this stamp set with it's coordinating framelits and... I HAVEN'T USED IT!!!

In addition to all the excuses about not having time, I was hesitant, because it looked too difficult to line up and make a nice wreath with.  Watch this video, and you'll see why now I'm rushing over to my craft area to make some cards!

Can you believe it!?  Is this going to be on your next order now?

Have a good Thursday, and pull out those stamps you haven't used yet and create something wonderful.  You may just find a solution to whatever was holding you back!

Beat the Heat! Did YOU come and make cards?

Hi everyone!

We sure had fun on Sunday!  Thanks to those of you who could make it.  And for those of you who couldn't, it just so turns out that I will be holding it again (as a rescheduled time) on Friday, September 5, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  So if it didn't work out for you, go ahead and let me know you can make it this coming Friday.

Here's a sneak peek at what we made.

It's a super fun pouch that holds 3 note card sized cards and envelopes.  I think it makes a great gift or even keep it for yourself to always have a card ready.  I actually made this at convention and couldn't wait to share it with everyone!  I hope you like it!

I'm excited to get back into the swing of things, and already planning lots of classes for the upcoming seasons!

Happy Tuesday!
