OMG – where do I start? OK – that big broad smile on my face is because I earned the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Figi in the spring of 2013. MUCHO thanks to my wonderful customers!!!!! Oh, how I love you! This has to be the best job in the entire world – working for such a great company and doing something I love!
Here's the next reason to smile – It's the July special and it's all for you – and it's called "Reason to Smile!"
Here's just one of the cards that I have made with this stamp set;
I used some of my favorite products – of course newbies from the fabulous new catalog!
Cardstock & Ink; Whisper White, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Floral District DSP, Gumball Green
Stamp Sets: Reason to Smile, Petite Pairs
Accessories; Apothecary Accents Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelits, Fancy Fan Folder, Small oval punch, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Bakers Twine
I love the detail that the essentials paper piercing pack adds to this project. So easy to use to add such great interest and texture. This will be one of the cards at my hostess club this month. We are shifting the dates from the first Tuesday and Wednesday to the second Tuesday and Wednesday – so July 10 or 11. There are a number of openings – perfect time to get started with the new catalog – and the amazing holiday mini catalog coming Aug 1 (stay tuned for more on that – warning you will be salivating!).
With the new Stampin' Up! year starting, you will also note that I am going to schedule blog updates for Sunday, Mon, Wed and Fridays. So, make sure you check back on those dates for fun new projects. I've had a little time this weekend to get things stacked up so – be ready!
Stay cool everyone and enjoy the day. Blessings to you and yours
