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.
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!
