This week I host one of my favorite stamping events – 3 times a year I do a new catalog stamp day with my demonstrators – just the ones that are “mine” There are other days that it is our whole group (and I love those too!). But these are smaller and more intimate – and I just love being with these ladies.
There is also the added bonus that it always means that I have had NEW stuff to play with! I also try REALLY hard to stay off Pinterest and as much other social media as I can – because I want all of the cards I design for them to make to be all my creations.
You can watch this one here (but if you want to see a better view of the coloring technique with the Blends – then I would suggest going TO YouTube where your screen will be clearer!)
The card might look like it took a lot of hard work – but you can see how really simple it was to pull together!
This time I am also sending the paper products for 3 of the projects to those out of state and setting up a Facebook Live session at one end of the table! Crossing my fingers (and toes, because me and technology is a love/hate thing, lol) I found out what stamp sets they had and they will be able to at least stamp along with us – and watch what happens on the table that has those projects on it.
On Facebook this week – my FB*POW (Product of the Week) IS the Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek (saving me from having to get ready for them and come up with something else for over there, lol). But I know that after talking with my Camp Ladies, everyone is ready for that Catalog to hit the Live status on September 5th.
Hopefully by seeing some of the projects early you will notice some things that just flipping through the pages – you may have missed!
I have used this stamp set once already here with a sneak peek (it is the same one that was on my Cotton Card!) – but here I didn’t match it up with the DSP that is part of it’s Suite. I will let you watch the video to learn how I came up with the mixing of 3 different product suites to achieve the look I was going for!
Three things – if you are in the Indianapolis area and have thought about signing up as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator – I still have room for more! Sign up with me before Thursday morning and you are welcome to come stamp the 8 projects with my girls! They bring the snacks – I provide the projects. It’s a match made in heaven, lol. I am Thankful for ALL the Good Things! See – the card is perfect for an occasion just like this!
Secondly, I can’t put the recipe up yet for the card since the catalog is not live. In the video I do give the details on everything I use – so you can jot it all down so you can recreate the card later if you like. Some of these projects MAY be Camp cards. Camp Girls – if you see one you want to make – let me know and I will put it on the September list!
Finally – if you DO NOT have a Holiday Catalog yet – let me know! I would be happy to send you one! I will be going to the Post Office again on Friday. That would give you just enough time to get it before it goes live next week!
Speaking of Live – Thursdays are the day I am trying to do my Facebook Live. This Thursday is also my Stamp Day. I hope to be ready enough to go live to show you the projects and some close ups of some of the products. Watch my Facebook (Cheri’s Cards) for the status of that this week! I have about half of their projects ready – but I have so many other things on my calendar this week as well.
