Stencil Class

Those of you who watched yesterday's video got a chance to meet Shelli. Today's video is Shelli showing just how easy to use the stencil line from SU! I have a class in June that will use the stencils - so this gives a great preview. Watch this site for the sample projects that we will make at class!

Stampin and Stenciling!
Monday June 22nd 9:30 am or 7:00pm $20
We will use a stencil from the Home Decor' catalog - and even make your own using the Big Shot die above. Class projects will include a stamped canvas bag, a flower pot and a journal cover. Don't miss this one of a kind class!

Meet Shelli

Stampin' Up! now has a YouTube channel - so be watching my site as I bring you a video now and then for inspiration!

Today's video gives a fun glimpse into the company and it's CEO/founder, Shelli Gardner.

I have had the pleasure to hear Shelli speak and chat with her on several occassions. She is a true delight - which I am sure you will pick up on as you watch the video!

Summer's in the Air!

Can you believe only 1 full week of school left? Tonight is the Freshman Formal - so it will be a whirlwind here from 3:30 - 6 as preparation is done. There was actually a request from someone living here for an early pick up from school to go get nails done. Um, no. ;^)

As soon as some natural sunlight makes its way into my office I will post some pictures of the retiring sets for sale - see the link above? You will find them there!

Enjoy this digital swap from one of my talented SU! friends!

May 13, 2009

retired....and for sale!

I am in the process of getting ready for the latest SU! retiring list to come out June 1st - we will be away those first few days of June, so I 'hope' to get my catalog all ready to take with me, so I can give you all the deets via email before we return.
To start clearing out space I have listed a few items on Ebay and will be adding others to the For Sale page on this site - hopefully many will be there by Friday. The first things will be items that are ALREADY retired - if they have been for sale here before - the prices will be LOWER - I want to clear them out, so the bargains will be there for the taking!

If you attend classes here, you can shop here - or email ahead to reserve your items.

When the new list comes out - my club ladies and preferred customers will get the first list of what I have that will go - I have scads of hostess and SAB sets from this past year! Then it will appear here and in my email.

And - this sample is one that we will be making next month at Fifth Avenue Floral - With One Stamp class - it is a magnet - yes super shiny!

Check back soon for the SALE!

Oval All

Tomorrow is the Oval All class - one stamp set - 4 fun projects! We will be using crystal effects, lots of hardware, refills, window sheet...... still room in the AM session if you want to join us!

afternoon sunshine!

Getting ready to head out the door for an afternoon of golf and shoe shopping for this week's Freshman Formal on Friday. It's one of those weeks were we have something every night - so crossing my fingers that we can find shoes that make everyone happy (mom, daughter and budget!)
Tomorrow I stamp with friends and hope to get more summer class projects done this week. Worked today on things for next month's With One Stamp class - which will be the second time that we use Fifth Avenue Floral.
Those samples will begin to appear here over the coming days -but I participated in a 'virtual' swap with some of the ladies in my group - these are some cards from that.
Enjoy your day!

Summer Classes

I am trying to update my Summer Camp class page (see link above) - but something is moving very slowly - don't know if is the google document site or my computer..... but check back later today and it should be up.

Til then - here is one of the 3 cards we will make at May's Extra*Ordinary Card class - all the samples will be on the class page!

May 5, 2009

Extra*Ordinary Cards

I have camp this morning and later this week will pick up on my top five stamp sets.

Til then - here is a sample from May's Extra*Ordinary card class. What's the difference between that class and a camp?

Not much - at the E*O we will make fewer cards - 3 or 4. Cards take more time and will often use more embellishments than camp cards. You can learn a lot at these classes as each card can have several techniques.

Here's the schedule for the Extra*Ordinary Summer Series
(you can attend one or sign up for all and get a discount!)
May Friday 29th am or pm
Saturday June 13 9:30 am
Friday July 24th am or pm

Classes are $15 each
or $35 when you prepay for the series
Pre-payment also lets you get the Pop-Up die for 30% off!
