Enjoying the Summer

Are you enjoying the summer?! We certainly are. This summer has been full of so many good things…this morning I am feeling blessed.  To start the summer my husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary, then our son got engaged, we got to spend a couple of weeks with our favorite little grandson and his parents :), we were able to check off a bucket list item for my mom by taking her with us on an Alaskan Cruise, and just this past weekend we live-streamed our daughter playing keyboard on a worship album release in Australia.  Wow we miss hearing her play! I am enjoying all these little moments and learning to find balance. It is a definitely a process.

Whenever we go on these Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trips, we have the option of participating in a card swap. This was mine…
Alaska Swap July 2018I don’t typically use 3 stamp sets on one card, but this time I couldn’t help myself. I found myself inspired by some home decor photos on Pinterest. What inspires you when you sit down to make a card? I am loving letterboards right now, so I wanted to show one sitting on a shelf. The leaves are from Tropical Chic, the vase is from Varied Vases, and the letterboard is from Letter Board Messages. You can find all these supplies in my online store.

This month’s hostess code is XQWVBV7A.

Every order over $50 will receive a set of 5 handmade cards from my card selection. I’ve just added a ton more cards I know you will love!
 
**August is Bonus Days…**so if you spend $60, you will receive a bonus code for $6 to use in September!

Class in the Mail – We Must Celebrate

Spring is coming and we must celebrate!! Although it’s a little difficult right now with all this snow on the ground. But let’s think positive.

I have a new class in the mail for you. This month we will be highlighting the adorable woodland creatures in the We Must Celebrate set.
We-Must-Celebrate-ImagesHow cute are they?! I have chosen 4 different cards featuring each one of them. You will fall in love with them! And they will be sure to bring a smile to the face of everyone who receives a card you’ve made with this set.

Here’s a little sneak peek…
Class in the Mail - March
How does it work?
You purchase the class…I pre-cut all the supplies and put together project packets and mail them to you (or arrange for pick up). Then you will receive an email with a .pdf that includes pictures and detailed instructions on how to create the 4 projects.

March Class in the Mail – We Must Celebrate 
You do the stamping and these cute creatures do the celebrating!
There is minimal coloring on these cards so you will need to have something on hand. I used the Blends Markers and our Stampin’ Write Markers, but you could use whatever method you’d like. If there are additional punched or Big Shot pieces needed, they will be included in your class packet.
 
Your class fee includes the We Must Celebrate stamp set, a package of Linen Thread, a package of Subtles Enamel Shapes, project supplies and a PDF file. (If you do not live local, a method of postage will need to be determined. I believe expresspost is about $10.)
 
Clear-Mount Class fee: $55 
(The product value is $44.25, so if you would like to get a Sale-a-bration item please choose other product to get you to the $60 mark.)
