Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I am grateful for your support and encouragement – whether it was liking a post on Facebook or Instagram, responding to a post with a comment or attending a Stamp Night during 2017.  I wish each of you and your families a very Happy New Year and a year full of creativity and fun!

Isn’t this an adorable card?! I saw the idea on our demonstrator Facebook page by fellow demonstrator, Nadine Schweda.  She used a pretty light blue for the 2018 and a lighter cardstock background so I thought I would try it with Navy numbers. The pandas are one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets which you can order FREE with a $50 order from the new Occasions or the Annual catalog beginning on January 3rd.

So, make a 2018 goal to spend more time creating – whether it is stamping, memory keeping/scrapbooking or coloring (with our great watercolor pencils or our new Stampin’ Blends markers).  I’d love to have you join us for a Stamp Night.  I’ve only heard back from one person so far – whether to meet Jan 16 or Jan 30, so please let me know what will work for you.

Again, Happy New Year!

Stampin’ Blends are coming soon!

It is so exciting when new product is introduced on its own, at a different time than a new catalog. It’s not so overwhelming and we can focus on the new product. I saw a well known stamper, independent company, introduce a new product the other day, he said the same thing, it’s fun to introduce new items separate from the Holiday line.  So, as I mentioned the other day Stampin’ Blends are coming soon!

In November you will be able to order the Stampin’ Blends, either individually for $4.50, in dual color packs (a light and a dark shade) for $9.00 or the whole entire set of 26 plus the color lifter (Yes, we do make mistakes now and then). The entire set is $121.50… Christmas is coming, put it on your wish list!

I will have a small practice item for our stamp night on Monday, Oct 23 (please RSVP if you plan to attend) and I will have brochures for our November stamp night on November 13.  I am sure, just returning from Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City Nov 9 – 12, I will come back with some great ideas and new info on ways to use the new alcohol-based blending markers. 

To show you just how easy it is to use the blending markers, watch this short video by Stampin’ Up!

Aren’t they pretty! The video features the Color Me Happy stamp set and the Color Me Happy Project Kit which includes 16 card bases and envelopes with backgrounds and accents to create 4 cards each of 4 different designs.

So stay tuned for more information and card samples featuring our new Stampin’ Blends!

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.                              – Georgia O’Keeffe
