Lighthouses & Sailboats ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s a beautiful day …. the sun is shining, it’s warming up and the snow is melting!!

The other day I shared my love of lighthouses with you, and yesterday my Paper Pumpkin came in the mail and when I opened it up … WOW!  Was Stampin’ Up! reading my mind? I believe they have their finger on the pulse of what their customers want!

With summer celebrations just weeks away, you’ll want to get a head start on putting this seaworthy kit together. This kit is full of nautical-style cards and gift boxes that will make your summer gifting and party planning smooth sailing. Check out the monthly unboxing video!

How did you like the tips she showed us …. Placing the stamps on the tag (upside down) to position them to fit, and then put push the block on top to get ready to stamp!

There are so many ideas I have with this kit!  Of course, masculine birthday cards (or Lake Lovin’ Cards!) But also … Scrapbooking trips to Door County (Eileen and I took an awesome boat trip – would be perfect) or the photos taken during a road trip along the Lake Michigan shoreline!!

Thank you for stopping by today, and check back with me tomorrow for a special card and Sunday for my Simply Sunday series.

Have a wonderful day!

Share What You Love 2 ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh My Gosh … when I got home from work yesterday I checked my phone for messages.  Five missed calls – OK … One message, so I listened and to my surprise I heard; “Hello Linda, this is Sara Douglass from Stampin’ Up!”

WHAT … are you kidding me!! Sara … CEO of Stampin’ Up!!  She said “I’m calling to congratulate you on your $500,000 Milestone.  That is a huge milestone, and a lot of stamps!” So tell me … how often does the CEO of the company you represent or work for, call you and congratulate you for your accomplishments? (Usually I got a bigger workload for a job well done!) Recognition is one of the reasons I have stayed with Stampin’ Up! for 18 years … Don’t we all like to be told we did a good job!

Did I mention … they also give their demonstrators a $1000 bonus each time we reach a $100,000 milestone!!  I am amazed and grateful to be associated with this wonderful company … Stampin’ Up!  Thank you Sara for the call … and I’m sorry I missed it!!

OK … I’m back to share the last of the bundles from the  …

Here is the video again … just in case you need a refresher (I would) lol

 

On Monday I shared to goodies packed in the Level 1 and Level 2 bundles, now here is the Level 3, or should I say “Got to have it All” bundle!!

WOW … that really is a bundle full of goodies!! I know I had to have it all (Got mine … perk of being a demonstrator) Not so we can have bragging rights … but so we can sit down and prepare a wonderful class or samples to share on our blogs with you.

I’m a face to face kinda girl … so watch for a class listing from me 🙂  Meanwhile, here are the cute cards that were shown in the video …

Remember, in the video, Brandi told us that she created the greeting on the left card buy using the “Make a Difference” stamp set … how cool is that!

Stampin’ Up! has one more bundle for us … the NEW IN-COLORS!!!!

I’d love to hear what you think!!

Thank you for checking back in with me today.

Have a wonderful day!

Share What You Love ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you made it through the weekends terrible weather … seemed bad all over!! I just took a peek at the upcoming weather and they are talking about 50 this weekend. That might not seem to nice to those of you in Arizona and surrounding areas, but it beats snow and ice with 50 mile per hour winds!  One awesome thing thing that came out of that weather was ….

Isn’t this hauntingly beautiful.  It was taken in Port Washington, Wi by Jeffrey Ewig Photography.  I love lighthouses and have always wanted to get an amazing photo like this … so you know next time there are high winds, I’m off to Lake Michigan with my camera!!  There are some beautiful lighthouses along Lake Michigan and it’s one of my favorite things to do on the drive up to Door County.

OK … now that I shared something that I love (besides stamping) I’d like to share a video that shows all the amazing items in the “Share What You Love” Suite.

So grab your coffee, sit back and relax while you watch this video.  Don’t worry … it’s not that long, I just thing you should take a nice break!!

Isn’t that an amazing product suite … I love it, and I will be sharing it!! I will host a class in May, my Clubs will get to use it, and my Retreat attendee’s will also be creating with this suite!!  All of the cards will be different …

This is the Level 1 Bundle! Great if you are a new stamper.

This is the card that was created for the video; simple but elegant.

I’d also like to share the Level 2 bundle. This is a step up for a more experienced stamper.  The block is gone (you’ll already have one) but you’ll get an additional stamp set and more … I love the box that contains the embellishments!!!

Since we’ve stepped up the bundle, we have stepped up the card …

It’s so pretty and I love the colors! The colors are so warm and the velvet ribbon adds a touch of softness. Who wouldn’t want this card!

Anyhow, I’m going to let you go now, but stop back tomorrow and I’ll finish showing you more from this fabulous suite.

Thank you for hanging out with me today.

Have a wonderful day!

 

Sneak Peek …Customer Preorder!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today  I have two cute card samples taken from one of the boards at our OnStage event earlier this month that I would like to share with you.

I found these cards come from the product suite “Share What You Love” and that is will be a preorder for our customers this May! You will be able to purchase one of the bundles before the New Catalog comes out in June.

Here is a beautiful card using the new designer paper, ribbon and embellishments.  There is also an embossing folder included in one of the kits ….

So pretty!!! Do you see the cute little colored pearls? This product suite has some many beautiful pieces to it.

Stop back tomorrow and watch a video that will show you the three different bundles and the beautiful products included in the kit. I will also have samples for you to view again.

Thank you for checking in on me today, and don’t forget to stop back tomorrow.

Have a beautiful start to your week.

TODAY’S STAMPIN’  SUPPLY LIST …

Sweet “Sneak” Peeks into the New Catalog …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to be short on words but will share some of the beautiful cards that were shared with those of us who were lucky enough to attend the April OnStage event.

You’ll view 3 talented demonstrators boards and two projects they created that highlight the new catalog stamp sets …. enjoy!

First up… Stesha and the Peaceful Reflection Bundle.

The softness of the lines really do create a “Peaceful Reflection”…

Next I would like to share two cards from the “Animal Outing” bundle! So cute …

This is just one of the stamp sets that we got as a gift from Stampin’ Up! at OnStage. I am really lovin’ this stamp set, so you will be seeing many more from this set.

Last but not least, it’s actually one of my favorites so far … the “Painted Glass” bundle. This board was created by my fellow West Bend demonstrator Pat Ertman, she did a beautiful job!

Saved this beautiful card for last … so pretty!!

The bundle comes with the stamp set and framelits. Also in the product suite is the stunning stained glass vellum paper.  Can’t wait to get my hands on this entire suite and I’ll be sure to invite you!!

Thank you for spending your Saturday with me … it looks like many of us are house bound, this spring is just not making an appearance!!

Whooops … did I say that! Nope not me, it was the robin!!

Have a good day, stay warm, stay dry ~
