August Special -- "Punch-A-Bunch"!

WOOHOO! It's that time again...time for an awesome sale!

Have you seen the new "Three For You" Punch box in the new Fall-Winter 2007 Collection? I have it, I love it, I've been using it like crazy and now you'll want to have it as well.

When you purchase this great new punch box in August, Stampin’ Up! will also include an exclusive assortment of textured Love Notes for FREE (value of $17.95 CDN) *plus*...I'll even throw in some matching ribbons to sweeten the deal.

You will not be able to purchase these little cuties separately as they are only available as part of this month's promotion. And did you see how adorable they are when you stamp them?! I love that little 3x3 size :)

So here's what you would get:


The Punch box includes: (see it all here)
- exclusive trio flower punch
- 9 piece DIE-CUT stamp set
- Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate and Basic Black ink spots
- keepsake tin

Free "Love Notes" Assortment includes:
- 30 pre-scored textured 3″ x 3″ cards: 10 each of Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate and So Saffron.
- 30 Very Vanilla envelopes

- one yard each of Wild Wasabi and Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon. (These are some super yummy ribbons - everyone who has been playing with them at my recent classes will surely agree!)


You can order this from me up until August 31 so just call or email me, and I'll get you all set up.

Friday is almost here!!!

Okay so last night I worked on 2 more projects for my Fair on Friday. I finally made these Vegetable Couture cards from Ellen Hutson LLC I have been wanting to make for months - I used deckled paper from StarLit Studio, the Aqua Painters and Watercolor Crayons are from Stampin' Up! I will package them in the plastic boxes from PaperTrey Ink.

The second project is using little bitty hangers and the sentiment Hang in There. The stamps and hangers are from Impress Rubber Stamps.

Busy Busy Busy

I have been teaching classes for the last few weeks - the last 2 weeks I had 2 in the same week. Plus this Saturday I have a stamp camp. And in addition to all of those little diddies I have an event I am doing at my friend's work - McKinsey & Company - they are having a McK Sip & ShopLOL. So I have been busy making about 100 cards to sell as well as putting together some stationary sets. If I still have time, I will try to squeeze in a few tile coasters to sell as well. Phew!

Here are cards Grace and I designed for our artScape class:

I made this one:

Grace designed these 2 cards:

So here are a few of the cards I have been making...

Sally the Snorkeler - I cased this from Kimmie's Korner and used Crystal Effects to make her fins and mask look wet.

This is a set of 4 that I placed into a plastic card holder I purchased from Papertrey Ink

Graduation Card

My hairdresser Luisa asked me to make a card for her brother's graduation so I decided to tweak another card and did it sideways.

artScape Class

Teaching at artScape again for the next 3 Saturdays. The day started out with the main doors locked for 20 minutes and class starting 30 minutes late since the security guard told them the wrong room but all went well after that LOL!

Here was a display I put together - some are my cards and some are others...

A cow card I did.

A card that we were given back in April from Nicole at Papertrey

Our working table

The students are so diverse. We have a man and a 92 year old woman plus 2 other ladies in the class.

We made the infamous umbrella card

The floral white craft ink card

We all really enjoyed ourselves and listened to classical music - very relaxing.

Here are their cards:

They did an awesome job!!!

Cards delayed....

I know, I know...so behind on blogging. 4th of July I was recovering from our BIG BASH on the patio followed by fireworks and more partying but enough of that LOL ... I chose to organize cards, ideas and STAMP that afternoon - well it turned into like 11 hours and I still don't have a lot to show. I am preparing for a craft fair at my friend Irene's work at the end of the month so I was mostly figuring out what cards I will create or recreate.

This card is CaSED from Taylor

There were other die cuts in the Pebbles package so I created this...

This was a quick Birthday card I made for my Grandmother. Her bday was this past Saturday.
