You can pick up your copy of the 2008 Spring-Summer collection at my open house on the 4th and you'll also be able to see it right here on January 2nd so stay tuned!!

Christmas Scrap Club Pages

Christmas_scrapbook_pages_4Here are my Scrapbook Club's layouts for December.  Note that the large ornament is made with a circular piece of chipboard and the round tab punch!

The title is stamped with the Jumbo Outline Alphabet and then colored in with a Versamarker to get this look!

Holiday Wreath

Christmas_wreath_2Merry Christmas!  This wreath was designed and created by my friend and downline Diane Pappas.  Diane showed me her creation and it just blew me away so I had to make one to hang in my house!  Can you guess how it's made?  I'll give you a hint - look for the images of our five flower punch, and this is a creative use of our chipboard to make a sturdy backing for the wreath!  That's really two hints! 

Diane is such a talented stamper and I am lucky to know her!  But, that is one of the things about my group of demonstrators - we just have a great time sharing and learning from one another!  It really helps to make it fun and easy to be a demonstrator!

In The Spirit of Giving

Img_6839_2During this time of year I always find myself doing some "spring cleaning" - it's a great time to go through my clothes, jackets, mittens, etc and donate them to those less fortunate.  Well, this year I'm doing one more thing to help. 

Stampin' Up! supports the Ronald McDonald House charities through sales of the Just Like You stamp set, donations and demonstrator volunteers.  Did you know that the RMHC also accepts pop tops to be recycled and earns money this way too?  I've started saving my pop tops but just had to decorate a jar to save them in. 

I made this jar by punching out the RMHC logo from my Fall-Winter Collection using the small tag punch, layering it and tying it around the jar using some Wild Wasbi double-stitched grosgrain.

If you are interested in helping, you can bring your pop tabs with you the next time you come over for a class or club, or donate them at your local McDonalds!  Thanks for making a difference this holiday season!

Holiday Glitz

Holiday_glitz_2This past weekend I was working on my Christmas cards and I had a pack of the Holiday Glitz cards and I must say that I wish I had ordered enough to make all my cards this way!  Here's the design that I used for my cards using Holiday Glitz and they were so fun and easy to make!  These will be available only through December 15th so there's still time to take advantage of the Holiday Glitz pre-cut kit

In addition, the Wrapping Up the Holidays promotion ends this Saturday too!

Monogram Alphabet $100 Off!

Img_6832_3When the Monogram Alphabet was first released, many people saw the potential in these huge letters!  They are great for scrapbooking, cards and just displayed on your shelf as I have done.  You can spell out words, the alphabet, initials, etc, the possibilities are endless!  And, since they're both a stamp and a display item they have two uses! 

Since the large letters are retiring at the end of the month, I've decided to offer them individual letters at a 10% discount all month.

Or, even better, you can buy the whole uppercase alphabet (A-Z, &) for $100 off the retail price!  You also get hostess benefits with this purchase!  If you've been debating about getting these letters, email me today to take advantage of this generous offer!
