Only Two Weeks Left!

There are only two (2) weeks left to take advantage of the three great deals Stampin' Up! has going on for the month of May!
  1. Buy a Cutting Mat and get a Hobby Blade for FREE! You must use the Cutting Combo Pack item number (113421) in order to receive the free Hobby Blade and there is no limit to the number of times you may participate in this offer.
  2. Get On Board with Chipboard! Spend $35 on Stampin' Up! products and get 25 percent off any On Board items from the Spring-Summer Collection. All On Board products (pages 178-179) qualify for this promotion. There is no limit to the number of discounted chipboard products you may purchase once the qualifying order of $35 has been reached!
  3. For the month of May, Join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator and get 20 percent off the Starter Kit, PLUS a free tin of Hodgepodge Hardware (a $27.95 value). That makes the cost of the Starter Kit $159.20. New demonstrators can also purchase the Stampin' Memories Add-On to their Starter Kit for an additional $50. Whether you want to be a "hobby" demonstrator or a "career" demonstrator, the choice is yours. Either way, you get over $300 of business supplies and product in your Starter Kit for just over $150 ($200 if you add the Stampin' Memories Add-On). I can't think of a better bargain than that!

These deals end on May 31st so don't miss out! Call me today to get your order in or give me a call to get more information about joining my team and add some Hodgepodge Hardware to your toolbox!

My First Project

I said I wanted to post a project per week and I'm posting a project first thing! This is the invitations for our beautiful daughter's 17th birthday party. I'll apologize now for the "fuzziness" of the card. My scanner is on the blink so I'm going with a digital picture instead of a scanned image like I would normally do. Brittany wanted me to use blue and purple for her invitations so I used the trusty "Color Coach" to come up with different purple/blue combinations and let her choose which one she liked best. I added another coordinating color to it and viola!

These are made from a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock so they are not your standard size card. You cut your cardstock into fourths and then fold those in half so you have 4 cards (or in my case, invitations!). Way too cute! All "ingredients" are listed below....

Stamp Sets: Brushstroke Alphabet Numbers (retired), Together Forever, Baroque Motifs, She's All That
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Buckaroo Blue ('07 In Color), Mellow Moss, Very Vanilla
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, VersaMark
Accessories: 1 3/8" circle punch, Circle Coluzzle, Stampin' Dimensionals

My First Blog

I've finally jumped on the band wagon and entered the world of blogging! I will post a project each week and any specials announced by Stampin' Up! or myself. I will still keep my official Stampin' Up! website where you can find any upcoming classes as well as company promotions and requests for information, workshop schedules and project ideas. I hope you will continue to visit my official SU! website and will enjoy visiting my new venture into this wide world of blogging! :c)
