June 2018

Summer! WooHoo!

Greetings my Peeps!

Ahhh, the days of summer!  Delightful, and here in San Diego, it hasn't been too bad!  The June Gloom is gone by 9am and the days are perfect low 70's in temperature.  This is what San Diego is all about!

I held my Crafting Gals Sunday group on the 10th, and used this gathering as my mini catalog launch!  Here is my small display table, as most of my June order had just arrived on Friday!  Eeek!  I displayed the cards I had time to make from my May Pre-order, the stamps and DSP and punch, didn't show up in the picture...oh well...

June 10th catalog launch

I want to thank all of the lovely ladies that I CASE'D for my show - with all that was going on here at home, my creative side of the brain was hard pressed and not working well...Thank you to Tatiana Creative, Gloria Plunkett, Dani Dziama, Karen Barber, Denita Wright, Laura Allen, and Randi Collins.  Your creativity inspires me every day! I said mini catalog launch, because I want to re-introduce the catalog in July when more can come and I will be able to have a larger display!!! 

Since we weren't going to meet again until July, we decided to make patriotic small tags.  These were perfect to hang on a Patriotic tree (for those of us who have a tree up all year...hint, Cathy!).  But also, if you have a birthday in July - it is a cute tag for a present! 

I took the idea from my friend Ginny Nemchak who does beautiful vintage, layered projects.  I printed out some patriotic pictures from Ginny, sized them for the small or mini tags and the gals had various patriotic prints for backgrounds.  Embellishments were glittery pipe cleaners (I think they call them something different now), bows, buttons, flowers - anything they wanted to use to dress up their tags.  Here are some pictures:

As you can see, we like to eat, drink (wine!), and craft.  What fun we had - looking forward to July's meeting - Christmas in July????  We will see!

For those of you who have anxiously been awaiting the NEW colors of Stampin' Blends, well, we have to wait a little longer.  Per the update today, they are still "on their way".  They seem to be having an extra long vacation from us using them!  Ha!  I will let you all know when they will be in so we can get all of the new colors!  I have really had a wonderful time learning about the Blends and using them.

Remember, if you shop with me and it is under $150.00, use Junes code:

June is Busting Out All Over!


Greetings!

After a long six months of family medical issues, I am proud to be coming back into the groove of my favorite thing to do!  Papercrafting!!!  I have been steady at it, but haven't had the time to post anything on my blog.  

Well, guess what June 1st means?  The New STAMPIN' UP! CATALOG is LIVE!  WooHoo!  Many of you are on my mailing list, so you should have received yours by now.  What a great catalog, isn't it?  If you would still like one, let me know!  I will gladly get one to you!  You can go to the Let's Shop tab if you have your catalog already - shop til you drop!  Ha!

My catalog launch party is June 10 here at the Shedoudy residence.  If you are a local San Diegan and wish to come, let me know and I will include you in the invite!  I placed my big order on June 1st so hopefully I will receive my "stash" in time to make some pretty awesome items to show off some of the new bundles, papers, inks and embellishments! 

In May, we had our Craft Day on the 20th.  We made 5 different cards using the Share What You Love Designer Paper (page 177 in new catalog).  I used examples from someone on the Demonstrator Planning Site and I apologize, I forgot to get her name.  Here were the samples I made from her examples.  Whoever you are, THANK YOU for the great inspiration! Her work was much more detailed - she embossed many things.  I kept it pretty simple for my class.

Class sample 4     Class sample 5 

 Here are pictures of my gals hard at work.  I love these "candid" photos...they sometime look so serious, but really we had a lot of fun!  Note the wine???  Ha!

I showed them all about the new ink pads and the ease of opening..they all loved it.  I only had the in-colors at the time, so we had to use some of the old ink pads so still had the frustrations.  I am glad they are so much easier to open and close, but will have to wait to get all new ones. 

So, I will let you all go now and Order, Order, Order from our fabby new catalog.  Have fun!  When you do place your order, remember to use this months Hostess code if your order is under $150.00.  If it is over that amount, you will earn stampin' rewards, so take advantage of those!

Until next time, be kind to one another and try and always make time for "CREATING WITH PAPER"!
