Join the Club – Stamp Club, that is!

Hello, Hello Stampers. Happy Friday. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping. Yay! Spring is here 🙂 I wanted to pop in today and share with you a card that I created for my Stamp Club program. This class is offered both live at my house (on the third Thursday of every month – next class is Thursday, May 15) and as a “To Go” option for those of you who do not leave nearby.  Each month I feature a different stamp set and show you a variety of ways to use it. This month (April) was the So Very Grateful stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I like this class because it gives me the opportunity to really play with techniques and showcase the versatility of stamping. Card class (the last Tuesday of every month in Chatham) is great for mass producing cards (cute, simple designs), but this is the class if you want to learn new things. (And hey, who says you can’t attend both, right? wink, wink) This is how it works: If you are local — it’s pretty simple — you come to class make the cards and place your minimum order. Easy, peasy

Going, Going Gone…. with FREE SHIPPING!

Happy Marathon Monday. Today is an exciting day in Stampin’ Up world as well. Not only do we have the retiring stamp and accessories lists for you today, but we also have FREE SHIPPING today through Friday, April 25. A couple quick reminders before I tell you my top five “sad to see go” items. 1. EVERYTHING is while supplies last so order quickly! The accessories are always while supplies last, but this year the stamps are, too. This means that once a stamp set (or other item) is sold out it is gone … and that could happen today, tomorrow or not until June. So if there is something you really, really want order it ASAP. Note that all the 2012-2014 In Colors are retiring (Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple). The cardstock, ink refills, markers etc. WILL sell out and probably sooner rather than later so if you need any of those get them NOW. (Please note that the Raspberry Ripple ink refill is already sold out). 2. Free shipping is on EVERYTHING you order. This is a great time to head to my online store and place an order… no shipping! How cool is that?  3. If you do plan

Have You Heard?

I cannot tell you how excited I am about the announcement from Stampin’ Up and Becky Higgins today. Have you heard? You can read all about it here, but let me fill you in.  Have you heard of Project Life? It’s a phenomenal and easy way to document your life. Personally, I feel it’s the best type of documentation because it really focuses on Everyday Life. I find that the layouts I enjoy most when I look through my albums are not necessarily the ones that are about a big event (a wedding, birthday party, etc.) – it’s the layouts where I see what my favorite song was five years ago or that showcases a family tradition or even just includes my “to do” list for the day. It’s fun to see the nitty gritty of your day last year, last month (and sometimes even last week! 😉 Well, today, it was announced that Becky Higgins ever so popular Project Life projects are coming to Stampin’ Up! So you’ll have the best of both worlds — color coordination, cool stamps and tools  all in the easy to work with (think fast!) format of Project Life. Honestly, I should have known this was
