September 2019

Holidays are upon us! Yay!

Boo!  Be Grateful!  Merry Christmas!  Happy New Year!

Wow!  Here they come!  I am very excited this year about all of these Holidays and more!  But first lets see what my Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering did on September 22nd!  We made a tea light Halloween lantern of sorts and two Fall cards that came from the August Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up!  I fixed Beef Stroganoff to try and get us in the Autumn Chill mood.  But low and behold it was like 78 that day!  Oh well, we still had fun crafting and filling our tummys. 

(You may have to click on the photos to see all of each one.  For some reason, my blog isn't capturing the full photo...eek!)  We always have so much fun at these gatherings.  I wish I could hold them more than once a month, but because I pretty much provide everything for them, it is just too exhausting.  The ladies love it just as much as I do though.

October 1st is bringing on some new things at Stampin' Up!  Demonstrators will get to Pre-Order the BRAND SPANKING NEW Paper Trimmer!  We are all so used to calling it the Stampin' Trimmer, but it is no longer referred to as that!  I am going to order it and a pack of 4 extra blades to try it out!  It still will score in addition to cut, so I am thrilled about that!  Plus!  It is only $25.00!!!  Cheaper than our last one.  Bargain, Bargain, Bargain!!! Here is a sneak peak at it:

Here is a cute video showing the new Trimmer



They do not have a release date for customers yet, depending on how it goes over with DemonstratorsAnother great reason to ask me about becoming a Demonstrator!  These pre-order opportunities just keep coming!  Click on Join The Fun or Join Me for more information on how to become one of my team members!  I would love to help you achieve your Paper Crafting dreams!

Another exciting announcement is October and November's Paper Pumpkin kits are Special Edition Coordinating Kits called Winter Wonders.  If you have never indulged in Paper Pumpkin, now would be the ideal time!  Subscribe by October 10th to get the October kit and why don't you try a 3 month subscription so you are automatically subscribed for November and December kits.  The last few Paper Pumpkin kits have been so cute!  They are changing things up a bit and improving them as per subscribers comments...and boy are they fun now!  They come with everything you need to make cards, a project or use your imagination!  Many post their Paper Pumpkin alternatives on line for you to see and try out.  It's worth a go!  $22.00/month.  Just click on this link www.paperpumpkin.com to subscribe and learn all about it!

Okay!  One more announcement and I will show you a card I have been working on!  October 1st once again, Stampin' Up! is offering the Pre-Order for Demonstrators the Christmastime Is Here Suite.  Then November 1st it will be available to you the customer.  It is a Christmas Rose and it is a SUITE, so it includes two stamp sets, dies, ribbon, specialty designer paper, gold glitter enamel dots AND a bracelet!  Wowza!  The entire suite will run $112.50 but it is availabe separately or a bundle option (2 stamps sets and 2 coordinating die sets) for $61.00.  Here is a picture of the Suite and several samples made by Stampin' Up!

No peeking!

Be kind to one another and remember to make time for Creating With Paper!


Summer Over Blues? NO!

Can you believe that we are into the Autumn soon?  To be honest, I am looking forward to cooler weather and the upcoming Holidays! 

The new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is out and live for all of you paper peeps!  It is a great catalog this year and I want it all as usual!  In the midst of all of the Holiday Hoopla, don't forget the Annual Catalog.  It has wonderful ideas and things that will enhance your Holiday catalog choices.  If you need a Holiday Catalog, please let me know!  I can get you one in a flash!  I know you won't be disappointed!  Here is a cute, quick video showcasing some of the catalog. 

 


Also, if you would like to become a member of my Team, I would love to have you join me and my fabulous crew!  I can give you more details...just email me!  Need help deciding on product?  I can help with that also!  I love presenting and making new projects for my team and their families.  We all share our ideas and just love helping one another.  My purpose is to help you with a project or help you get what you need for your project.  I am here for you!

July 21st we had a Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering, luckily I found those pictures.  We did a Christmas card and a "manly" card...no muscles, though!  I finally fulfilled my dream of having Christmas in July.  He He!  Here are the photos!

On a personal note, we took a fabulous Alaskan Cruise the first part of August and as soon as we got home, I got sick!  This cold has hung around for 3 weeks now, but I am determined to shake it off!  So, I haven't been diligent about writing or crafting.  Just a few projects.  It seems all of my July pictures have disappeared in the transition from iPhone photos and Google photos.  I am still trying to figure out where they went, but technology is crazy, so hope to discover them in some unknown place! 

Well, I better get this posted...it is late.  In between writing this we went for a visit to the Grandkids in Sacramento area.  Oh gosh, they are growing up way too fast, and the two little girls they are fostering and hoping to adopt are just the sweetest little things.  Anyway, we had a blast...

Have a great month, be kind to one another, and make time every day for some CREATING WITH PAPER!

Hugs!
