June & July Workshop News!




I’m finally back from my vacation:  3 amazing weeks and a week to recuperate!  I have some great news!  It’s June and Stampin’ Up has introduced its new Annual Idea Book and Catalog for 2018/19!  Its always a very special time of year and I would love to share it with you.  If you’ve been on my mailing list for a while, you have received a catalog already.  My upcoming workshop is celebrating the new color revamp, our new stamp pad style and some new and exciting stamp sets.  I would love to give you a new catalog when you attend your next workshop.  Here is my schedule for the months of June & July. 

June 23, Saturday – 12 Noon to 3:00 PM – Celebrate the new Annual Catalog with me.  And since it’s the day before my 39th Wedding Anniversary, we will make a wedding/anniversary card.  I know I missed Father’s Day, but we can still do a guy’s card.  Guys have birthdays and so we will make a male oriented birthday card.  My 3rd card for the workshop will be a general Note card that be used for Thank You, Thinking of You or whatever.  So, we will be making 6 cards using the new colors in the color re-vamp and new in-colors.

June 27, Wednesday – 12 Noon to 3:00 PM – Repeat of Saturday’s workshop.  If you can’t join me on Saturday afternoon, try to come on this Wednesday afternoon. 
Because I am showcasing the new catalog, the fee for the above workshop will be $15 and if you didn’t get one already, I will have a copy for you.
 
Technique Nights!  As I previously discussed, we are going to explore some techniques, some long standing favorites and some new ones.  I plan to do this once a month on a Thursday evening.  I hope you will join me for my first one on Thursday July 5th.  We will make a technique card with instructions and an example, in a standard form that can be added to a scrapbook or notebook, then 2 cards using the technique. Fee for Technique night will be just $15
July 5, Thursday – 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM – Our first technique will be Stained-Glass on Vellum.  We will be using white embossing powder which is super for spring!  
July 26, Thursday – 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM – Technique Night!  Stay tuned for the next technique to be announced.

July 18, Wednesday – 12 Noon to 3:00 PM – Summer Ink it Up!  Summer card ideas.  $25
July 21, Saturday (Same as Wednesday) -12 Noon to 3:00 PM – Summer Ink it Up!  Summer card ideas. $25

Graduation 2018


How the year is flying!!  Prom, Graduations, Weddings, Father’s Day & Babies events are all coming up and cards are all a wonderful part of those traditions. 
My first big events this spring are Graduations.  I have 2 nieces who are graduating from High School this spring and have gotten into the Universities of their choices, as well as many other children of friends who are also graduating.  I am so proud and excited for them. 



 I created this special Graduation card for them using the Amazing Congratulations stamp set.  Those who attended a workshop with me last month will be familiar with it.  I created a pocket on the side for a gift card or check.  My fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators will forgive me, I used a retired set to create the “mortarboard".  I made the tassel from some silver cord. 

UPDATES

Apologies!  I will be taking another break in May from holding workshops.  I may not be able to get one scheduled in June in time for Father’s Day, but I will try. 

Upcoming Events:  I am proud to say that in June I am will begin a series of workshops aimed at techniques.  Some will be very basic so that crafters that are not familiar with Stamping can learn some simple but exiting techniques.  Details will be posted in an upcoming workshop invitation.  I will be trying to keep my days more consistent.  If they don’t fit into your schedule, call me and we can have our own private session.

Big News!  Our new Annual Catalog and Idea book becomes available to purchase from on June 1st!!!  Each year we retire bunches of old stamps sets and accessories and bring in lots of new ones and ideas to go along.  If you would like a printed copy, just let me know, I will have a stack on hand shortly. 

In the meantime… the retiring products in the the 2017 -2018 Annual Catalog and the Occasions/Spring catalog will not be available after June 1st and remaining supplies are limited the list of retiring products and catalogs.

Spring Fling

Spring Fling & Ink

Glad you could join me for the workshops we had last week.  We had a really great time.  If you missed this fun workshop here are the great cards we made.

Inside sentiment: Life Looks Beautiful On You


      This was a “Z” fold style card.  I did a version of this card a few months ago.  This one was a lovely card for your mom, your daughter or your best friend for virtually any occasion.  The card stock color is In-color Berry Burst.


  I designed this card as a horizontal gift card or check holder.  This version is a graduation card, but it can be used for weddings, engagements, or, as one of my attendees, Judy used hers, a bridal shower.  If you don’t want to use it as a gift holder, the bottom flap is easily cut off.  I hand-made the silver tassel from silver cord.




Inside sentiment: Happy Birthday


Our 3rd card is a wine-themed birthday card.  We learned to color with Stampin’ Up’s new Stampin’ Blends markers.
 Each color comes in a light and a dark shade and can be blended to get a multi-dimension effect. Blends can be purchased in pairs, individually or the entire set. 

(ps...you may purchase any of these cards, contact me.  $5 each plus postage - PayPal only- if you wish them shipped to you)

Hope you can join me for my upcoming workshop next month.  I plan on doing a Father’s Day card and a wedding card for the summer. 

Stay tuned. We will explore some special techniques to make our cards more interesting.

Spring is Here!





Can you believe that it’s spring? We have just enjoyed our "wearin’ of the green" and in a breath it’s time for Passover and Easter. 

Here is one of my offerings for Easter Greetings this year.  I used an adorable little chick from last year’s Honeycomb Happiness found Spring Occasions catalog (ok, so I’m a bit slow) but I saw one like this on Pinterest originally posted on Splitcoast Stampers by  beesmom.  
What is new is the coloring with Stampin’ Up’s  Stampin’Blends
 - beautiful new blend-able alcohol markers available individually, in packs of 2 or get the entire set of all 27 colors, and accented with a cute little bow made of Double Stitched Ribbon

Great News!  My dining room, where I hold my workshops, is finally back in order after a water pipe break last year.  Also, the puppy we got last year is now a year old 
   
Ziggy Stardust 


and is actually calm enough to have people over without them getting kissed to death, so I’m able to have workshops again..  


Stay tuned for information about a spring workshop I am planning for next month including projects for Mother’s Day and Birthdays.
