Hello Again!

2010 has been a difficult year so far ... so many stressful situations - hopefully everything is settling down and I will be able to post more often! Sorry .. these unanticipated trips can really throw monkey wrenches at you. I think I am home now for a while though!

 So have you had a chance to check out all of the retiring goodies??? You only have a FEW more days to get these items ... once they are gone ... that's it! Check out the links on my left sidebar. All kinds of creative things to check out. Orders need to be in my hands by June 29 .... that way I have time to place them by the 30th .... don't miss out - check out the retired lists NOW!

We're busy prepping for our Carousel of Cards - you're gonna be SAD if you aren't coming. We have some awesome things planned. It will be a great day. LOTS OF FUN and I GUARANTEE you will leave happy with a SPECIAL present ... but that's all I will say ...

Here's a little sneak peek of a special coupon book I put together for the new catalog and YOU ... every month there is a coupon you can use - redeem all of them and you will save nore than $70! Awesome huh?
My regulars will receive a catalog by July 1st. If you have placed orders of at least $150 with me (over the last year) you will get a catalog for FREE! And you will get the special coupon book too! What a deal!!
The new catalog is just gorgeous. You will LOVE it. I do.

Our Stamped With Aloha Open House is coming soon - here's a link to the flyer. Please RSVP with me if you are able to come so I can be sure to have a nametag for you!!  Plus we need a head count - the event is FREE ....

Stay tuned and hopefully sometime next week I get to posting the Carousel of Cards projects ... so many cards - everyone will make MORE than 20 cards!

Keep Stampin'

Long Time!

My oh my ... have you missed me? It's been so long since I've been able to post anything ... so sorry! Now I have to get you caught up on everything!

First and foremost - the new Stampin' Up catalog is almost here ... they will be available July 1 ... and there might be a surprise in store for those who are attending our Carousel of Cards ... what? You haven't signed up yet? Don't wait - there's only a few spaces left and the deadline is June 11 for sure. It will be a wonderful day - with door prizes and more than 20 cards to be made ... lots of friendship and crazy card making!

But hmmm . back to the new catalog - there are returning In Colors from days gone by (remember Wild Wasabi .. one of my favorites) Riding Hood Red, Pink Piroutte - all coming back along with MORE. There is a link here on my blog (left side bar) for you to see all the new colors.  There are a whole bunch of NEW colors ... Delightful Daffodil, Cherry Cobbler and MORE MORE MORE. You will love the new catalog. There are new set ups for card stock - a new group of NEUTRALS and of course some of the CUTEST stamp sets you will ever see.

Just remember ... stamp camp attendees just might get a sneak peek!

One of the things that kept me busy over the last month, my kids ... so I thought I'd share a picture ...

Here's Cait and Kerry in one of my favorite pictures ever .... and this was just a quick snap by one of them in the back seat of the car. We were on our way to the airport ... sending Cait back to college in Pennsylvania. So far away! And check out Kerry's new bangs ... Cute!

And in case you missed May's classes ... here are the cards that we made:

These two cards (above and below) were both made from the same stamp set - the new Tropical Party stamp set. I love the way you can get two totally different looks from the same stamps. The tropical night card (above) also features SMOOCH - a new spray glitter product that adds some sparkle.

My card bud Barb is still trying to figure out how to use this card ... I love them pocket look.

Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo ... what a combo- this is such a bright and happy card.

And for grad season ... here's a money or gift card holder ...

Keep Stampin!
