Stamp Clubs are FUN!

Once a month I pack up my crafting gear and head over to Wylie, Texas. I have a group of six awesome ladies that take turns as hostess and we make cards and other paper things for a few hours. Because one of them "hosts" for the month, they also reap the rewards of the resulting Stampin' Up! orders that month!

This particular group LOVES to do swaps. Everyone doesn't always play along, but most of them do, and their creations are always great! Even though Christmas is over I wanted to share pictures of their cards from the last get-together.

Aren't they fantastic? Love these talented ladies!!!

If you want to know more about being in a club, contact me. I would be happy to add another club to my schedule. I have also entertained the idea of doing a virtual club. =) The party scene is similar, I can bring the crafting to your house for one fun filled evening (or afternoon) and if your friends decide to buy stamps and such, YOU get free stuff! Yeah baby!!

Also, now that Sale-A-Bration has begun, for every $50 you spend you get something FREE. And you don't have to be the hostess! ;)

Keep stampin'

Catalog Kickoff

It is such a joy to be a part of Stampin' Up! They have been making a few changes lately and I'm excited to learn what's next on the agenda. One thing that's new is the catalog kickoff event we just had. Earlier this year they did a big "premiere" at theaters all over the US as well as most of the other countries where we have Demonstrators. It was great fun with prize patrols and a free stamp set for everyone. When they announced that we were having a "kickoff" for the upcoming Occasions Catalog, of course I was going!!

The kickoff was just last week...we were treated to a sneak peek of many of the pretty new things inside the Occasions Catalog as well as the upcoming Sale-a-Bration Catalog. We laughed and were entertained by some of our favorite SU! representatives as they showed us things they had created using the new stamps, project kits, embossing folders, framelits, mini boxes...oh there is so much wonderfulness to behold! I am buying EVERYTHING on page 19!! lol Just wait until you see the GORGEOUS paper that is hand painted art! I can't show you the actual pages of the catalog, but I can share completed projects...

Sara got things the paper flower bouquet on the catalog cover!! It's a kit! =)
Cute cards made with SAB reward items!

This one is a "two-step" set giving you these flowers in a beautiful watercolor look
These are also from SAB
This one showcases the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP which is white paper sporting a glossy pattern that you can brayer or sponge over, like emboss resist. It comes in 6 different designs.

...and then there was more

Stampin' Up! shared this little supplement with us. It's just a few more goodies to spice up your Holiday Projects. =)

Holiday Supplement
My favorite project kit in this supplement is the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit!!! At our last Stamp-n-Share we each chose a star to assemble. A little tricky, but once you make one you'll be a pro! ;)

That's me on the left with the large green star! =)
Many Merry Stars Kit - 138104  $25.95

You get enough to create a 15" star and 25 smaller stars
5 each of 5 sizes:
• Printed, die-cut star pieces
• Printed, self-adhesive die-cut side pieces
• Wooden snowflakes
• 7 sheets die-cut tags, banners, greetings, and accents

 Tips for success:
• Use additional adhesive—especially if you live in a region with high humidity.
• Use a Bone Folder to make sharper folds and reduce stress on adhered joints.
• Make sure your hands are clean of anything that might reduce adhesion (lotion, etc.) and avoid touching the areas with adhesive.
• Take extra care to press adhered seams together firmly.

And here's a quick video with additional Project Ideas from Stampin' Up!

Stampy Hugs,
