Paper/Ribbon Share UPDATE

 

This is a picture of first round of the the almost completed paper shares orders.  Is one of them yours?

If you’re unfamiliar with this concept, I’ll tell you a little bit about it.  I chose a few of the designer papers in the new current catalog and offered five different bundles.  My customers chose the ones they wanted and I cut the paper; I’m shipping some of them off today.

Here are a couple of examples (it’s two of the packages that I offered): 

BIRD BALLAD DSP BUNDLE (see the paper on page 166 of the current catalog):  1 each 6 x 12 pieces of each of the double-sided designer paper; 4 sheets Calypso Coral card stock; 4 sheets Daffodil Delight card stock; 4 sheets Old Olive card stock; 4 sheets Petal Pink card stock; 4 sheets Pool Party card stock; 5 sheets Whisper White card stock; 3 yards Striped Bermuda Bay ribbon; 3 yards Petal Pink Organdy ribbon.  $20

DESIGNER SERIES PAPER SAMPLER PACK:  6 x 6 piece of ALL of the DSP in the catalog (pages 165-167); That’s 72 pieces of 6 x 6 DSP  $22  (This bundle does not include the Color Collections which are shown on a different page.)

I think I’ll offer a paper share for the Holiday catalog.  What do you think of that idea? Here is my email address:  pat@stampinlady.com

If you don’t have a demonstrator, I’d love to become yours.  If you don’t have a catalog or Holiday catalog, I’m happy to send them to you.  Just let me know.

Thank you for checking in.  Have a wonderful day!

Perennial Birthday Card Kit

Hello My Friends,

Thank you so much for stopping in to see these beautiful cards from the Perennial Birthday Card Kit. 

I made them pretty quickly and they were very easy–the hardest part for me was tying the bows.  I think knots will work just as welL.

The kit contains four of each card design, the box, and all of the supplies you need except for:  the stamp set, Da[[er Denim, Flirty Flamingo, and Old Olive stamp pads, and glue dots.

Editorial note:  we are sorry that the pictures display sideways.  There seems to be an issue with the software we use and the fix is not obvious.  When we build the page, the photos have the correct orientation, but when we publish the page it gets messed up.

Stamparatus

Hello My Friends,

I AM SO EXCITED!  I’ve been waiting and waiting for Stampin’ Up! to release this type of tool.

Stampin’ UP! announced some of the details while we were at the event we just came home from and the rest of the details Monday morning,

We now have a stamp positioning tool.  It’s called a Stamparatus.  It’s absolutely different and way better than anything else on the market.  It has two clear plates that your stamps will attach to.  These plates are repositionable and reversible.  Two of the sides of the Stamparatus are open so that you can use larger pieces of card stock in it.  With the two repositionable plates, you have 4 surfaces that you can use.  And, it’s only $49.

With any amount of luck, I’ll put a video of this wonderful tool into this post.

 

 

 

It’s going to be sold differently than anything we’ve ever had:  tomorrow, November 16, we’ll all be able to reserve one of these magical tools, and we’ll receive it around February 1st, while supplies last.

The reservation process starts at 2:00 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, November 16.  To reserve yours, sign in to the Stampin’ UP website, www.stampinup.com.  You’ll see a “Reserve” button.  Click on that.  It’s very easy to reserve; you will need your credit card.  You may need my demonstrator ID number in order for me to get credit for your sale when it ships.  My number is 20209.

The reservations dates will be listed below and each one comes with the warning: while supplies last.

 

Reservation Dates                                          Available to ship

November 16-30                                             Approx. February 1, 2018

December 5-30                                               Approx. March 19, 2018

January 15-30, 2018                                       Approx. April 15, 2018

 

You may reserve now, and pay for it when it becomes available to you.  You’ll receive an email just before it ships and you’ll be able to add anything you want to your order.   Therefore, you’ll qualify for Sale-a-Bration rewards.  (February & March delivery dates only.)

You may only reserve one, but you can reserve one for each of the reservation dates.

This would make a wonderful Christmas gift.  The way I do this kind of Christmas gift is to print off a picture of the product and then add a small gift that they’ll have on Christmas day so they have something right then.  Think how excited your loved ones will be when they see what you’ve given them!

If you order one of these wonderful tools during the first reservation period using my information, I’ll  send you a package of Rhinestone Basic Jewels, shown on page 197 of the regular catalog.  You will need to let me know that you’ve reserved it as I won’t have that info until you receive the Stamparatus. 

I’ve been SO excited since I saw the Stamparatus last Thursday.  I didn’t have any of the details, but I fell in love with it.  Please watch the video; it really is amazing.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I love to talk stamping.  Text or cell 303-888-1862.  Home 303-674-6435.  Or, you may email me at pat@stampinlady.com.

Excitedly stamping and hugs to you.

Stampin’ Blends

Hello Stamping Friends,

Jim & I have been having a getaway and we’ve enjoyed it so much.  Jim taught a class in Los Angeles and then we’ve been vacationing.

We spent one day touring the USS Midway—what a fabulous thing to do.  I loved it and Jim loved it even more as he was checking all of the mechanical systems out.  I even got to do a little gambling in Primm, Nevada, on our way to visit some of Utah’s National Parks.

We had visited these parks before, but we knew we wanted to see them again.  We visited Zion, Bryce, and Capitol Reef.  If you haven’t seen them, I highly recommend that you work them into your vacation plans sometime.  We think Utah is a little-known gem.

And now, we’re just taking it easy for a couple of days and then we'll be in Salt Lake City for Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage (we used to call it convention).  I can’t wait.  Every event that Stampin’ Up! presents is always SO much fun and we learn so much.

While Jim was teaching one day, I decided it was time to break out my new Blends that just became available for purchase on November 1.  They are absolutely wonderful.  I’ll show you what I colored a little later in this post.  Anyway, they are so smooth.  I started out by coloring one leaf with the light shade and then another close leaf in the dark shade.  After I finished that, I started blending.  

Here’s what I colored:

 

For the blending, I put down the light color of the duo, added highlights with the dark color, and then I used the light one to blend.  It was so easy and I love the look.  One of the next things I want to do is make the cards that are in the kit that’s available for purchase.

The 12 x 12 designer paper that I used is called Just Add Color.  I had so much fun coloring it and now I can cut it up and layer it on to cards.  Love it!  I think it will be so fun to see what colors I’ve used in each cut piece and then decide what color card stock I want to use for the card.

The Blends are available individually or as a set.  There’s a kit that you can purchase with the Blends as well as a stamp set.  You should use the Memento pad when using the Blends.  Each Blend is $4.50. Each Combo Pack is $9 and includes both the light & dark shades. Here’s what’s available:

Bermuda Bay Light, 144580

Bermuda Bay Dark, 144579

Chocolate Christmas Gifts

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I’m so excited to share a couple of cards with you and also a couple of Ghirardelli chocolate presentation ideas with you.  Scroll to the bottom to see them.

Stampin’ Up! has announced some amazing sales.  One sale flyer lists several stamp sets at a 15% discount.  Also on that flyer, Fast Fuse (adhesive runner) is shown and it’s at a fabulous price: buy one Fast Fuse for $10 and get 2 refills FREE!  This sale lasts only through October 10 for World Card Making Day.

The other flyer lists 13 packages of Designer Series paper that are Buy 3, Get one FREE.  The papers this year are so beautiful.  You may choose the most expensive one as your FREE package. (Only the papers that are listed on the flyer are included in this sale.)  The paper listed is from both the regular catalog and the Occasions catalog.  This sale lasts for the month of October.

If you want to order any of these sale items or anything else, please use the host code:  KJAQC4N3.   If you place an order that is $150 or more, please don’t use the host code as you’ll then receive the host rewards yourself.  If you place an online order this month of at least $35, I’ll send you a blender pen.  If you place a $75 order online, I’ll send you a package of the new black rhinestones. These offers can’t be combined.

To see the items that are included in the sales, please go to www.stampinlady.com and click on Shop Now.  Then on the upper left corner, you’ll see World Card Making and Designer Paper sale.  Click on any of those and it will take you to the sale.

Please check out these sales as I don’t think you’ll want to miss them.

Stampin’ Up! is also offering two special Paper Pumpkin monthly kits.  For the months of October and November, the kits will coordinate.  They are Christmas related, but SU always surprises us with what’s actually in the boxes.

If you’d like to check out or subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, please once again go to www.stampinlady.com, click on Shop Now, and scroll down to Paper Pumpkin on the left.  If you decide to subscribe, please use my name.  You must subscribe or purchase before October 10 in order to receive the October kit (which coordinates with the November kit).

The first thing I want to show you is an acetate box (which of course we sell) filled with Ghirardelli chocolates wrapped in Year of Cheer specialty designer paper.  Patty Bennett created both of these chocolate ideas and shared them with the rest of us.  I made a set to display.

Supplies used:

Acetate Card Boxes, Occasions p. 13, 144628, 10 boxes $6.50.

Cheers to the Year stamp set, Occasions p. 37, wood 144295, $25; clear mount 144928 $18.

Glue Dots, reg. p. 202, 103683, $5.25.

Dimensionals, reg. p. 203, 104430, $4.

I used glue dots to hold the designer paper after I wrapped it around the Ghirardelli chocolates and dimensionals to give depth to the Joy circle.

For the Ghirardelli chocolates that are stacked together, I used the same supplies as above as well as the 3/8” Silver Metallic-Edge ribbon, reg. p. 199, 144213, $7.

I held the wrapped chocolates together with glue dots and linen thread, and then wrapped the ribbon around that.

Thank you so much!  Please let me know if you have any questions.  You may text or call me on my cell at 303-888-1862 or call me at home at 303-674-6435.  I’m always ready to help.

Stamp Camp Sneak Peek

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

Here’s a sneak peek of the cards that we’ll be making on September 29 & 30.

Every time we prepare for stamp camp, I always say that these are the best cards we’ve ever made, but these truly are.  We used lots of metallics, including the copper trim which I love.

I counted the cards as I laid them out to take the picture and there are 12.  We had planned that the cat with bling would be a bonus card, but I don’t know how we ended up with a second bonus card.  Anyway, there are 12 available to you if you want to make all of them.

Here’s the sneak peek:

 

 

I so hope you can attend as “these are the best we’ve ever had”.  Please let me know if you have any questions; you may email, call 303-674-6435, or call or text my cell phone 303-888-1862.

I hope to see you soon.  Many hugs, Pat

A Couple of Swap Cards

Hello My Dear Stamping Friends,

I’m back!!!

I’m so sorry for the delay in posting.  We had a wonderful trip to Thailand—thanks to all of you, my wonderful downline members, and Stampin’ Up!   The trip was amazing and we’re so happy to have been there.  Jim wrote a great blog with lots of info and pictures.  You can see it at beltguy.com/blog.

The only downfall was that Jim got sick for a few days while we were there (it didn’t actually make us miss out on anything).  I got sick after we got home—I was sick for 7 days before we got test results telling us that I had salmonella.  I don’t want to have it again.

An update on our daughters:  Lisa had her third chemo session last week.  It was harder on her than the previous ones, but she’s doing pretty well now.  The doctor has asked her to use a cold cap before, during, and for 2 hours after her chemo sessions.  It’s supposed to prevent permanent hair loss.  It’s very painful and claustrophobic as it’s very tight and then is tied to her head with something that runs under her chin.  She has one more session to go and she’ll be finished with her treatments.  Then on November 3rd, she’ll have her final surgery.   I’ll be so glad when she’s finished.

Kelly had her port placed a couple of weeks ago and had her first round of chemo last week (she & Lisa actually had their chemo infusions at the same time at different locations).  Kelly’s doctor had been following a study and changed her infusion drug right before she began receiving it.  She’ll now have six rounds of a little bit less harsh chemo and will then have daily radiation treatments.  She’s teaching this year and plans to miss school only on the chemo session days.  Kelly tolerated her chemo pretty well.

Thankfully, Judy is breast cancer free.  She had a mammogram and then had to have a biopsy, but it came back clear.  We are praying that she stays cancer free.

This is really crazy, but I had my regularly scheduled mammogram a few weeks ago.  There had been a change so I had to have a diagnostic mammogram and an ultrasound.  I now have to have a biopsy on Wednesday.  The doctor was very reassuring that it will be benign.  I’ll be really glad when it’s over.

I hope you can make it to the stamp camp that I have scheduled for Friday, September 29th  and Saturday, September 30.  It will be here at my house and we’ll have our regular salad potluck.  You may bring any kind of salad ingredients or dessert.  We’ll get the lettuce, spinach, & rolls (and Jim will slice and butter them for you).

The fee is $45 and $35 for club members.  You'll make 10 cards.

I’m thinking this time we’ll do 3 Christmas cards, 2 or 3 masculine cards, and 5 or 6 all occasion cards.  What do you think of that?

For the next event, would you like to have a stamp camp or stamp a stack that is all Christmas cards?

I’ve actually been stamping a lot—I made 186 thank you note cards for Lisa & Kelly over the past few weeks.  I used our Whisper White & Very Vanilla note cards, added a layer of card stock, stamped on designer paper, and layered that onto the coordinating card stock.  They are really cute and really easy.  The girls love them and I’ve loved using my retired designer paper.

I’m going to start sharing the swaps that I received in Thailand with you.  Please let me know if you want the measurements, etc. and I’ll measure them for you.

The first card is one of my favorite swaps from the trip. It was created by  Alicia Graham.

 

The second card uses the new Embossing Paste and is mixed with copper embossing powder and then heat embossed.  It is beautiful and was created by Sue Lepako.

 

 

I hope you enjoy these swaps that I received.  I’m having so much fun with them.

Hugs to all of you, Pat
