Birthday Delivery Class and more Stamp Along cards

The Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (DSP) on page 69 is so cute! 
The best thing about this paper is that the Birthday Friends Framelits dies were designed to cut the images from the paper. This is fabulous for those of us that don't always like to sit and color. 
This is one of the sheet of paper in this pack. It is suited for a scrapbook page more than cards.
We will use this one sheet to make six cards! 

Here they are. 

There will be a total of seven cards in the class. 
If you purchase the bundle ($71.61) you will receive the class for $75. That means that the cards and all the prep work will only cost $3.39! What a deal! You will have the rest of the pack of paper and the stamps and dies to make many more cards. 
If you would like to take the class but don't want to purchase the bundle you can do that for $25 which will include the pack of DSP. 
I must have your payment for the class before I send the order in on Monday the 12th of June. 
The class will be on Wednesday, June 21st at Schroeder's at 12:30. 
Please bring your trimmer and a D block.

Please note that the Happy Birthday die is not included with this bundle. It is sold separately but I will have mine there for you to use for the class. 

Here are a few more cards for the Stamp Along on Monday. 
This one uses the above stamp set but the DSP is retired now.

The inside is a simple pop up. 

Then there is the new daisy punch! It is already so backordered that it can't even be ordered right now! I decided to use it anyway and you can put it on your wish list if you need/want it. 
Two different ways to use this punch. Which one do you like the best? Or will you be making one of each? Again, I have used some retired DSP. Do you mind if I use the things (mostly DSP and ribbon) that I have here? I sometimes think that it multiplies as soon as it retires! 

One more to show you. 
Someone requested the birds. 

I hope to see you on Monday at the Library.

Have you seen the Pelicans?

There have been several pelicans along the lake and in the harbor. 
Have you seen them? I have only seen pictures of them so far. I hope they stay around long enough for me to get a first hand look at them! 
In the meantime, I have a flamingo card for you to make at the Stamp Along. 
It isn't a new set but I have finally gotten around to using it. 
I had a request for a flamingo card. I hope this one will fill the bill. 
We all need to say Thank You sometimes. This one could work! 

How do you like the new in colors? 
This Lemon Lime Twist is sure bright! 
If you have a friend that could use a little cheering up, this one could do that. 
It is paired with the Powder Pink and the Fresh Fig on this card. 

Which of the cards do you like the best? 
Let me know if you have and special occasion card that you need. 
I appreciate your suggestions. 

The hostess code to use until Monday is 

If you are placing an order larger than $150, don't use the code as those orders qualify for the hostess gifts for you. 
Thank you for your business. 
Hope to see you on Monday!

Next month we will be celebrating the Fourth of July. 
Do you send cards for that? 
Sometimes I do. 
It is fun to receive a card when you aren't expecting one. 
Do you like to receive a card in the mail? 
This is a quick and easy one that you can make at the Library on Monday, then you can send it and make someone happy with a "surprise" card. 

This Little Piggy is a cute new set. I have seen some really cute things with it.
Again, I ask, which orientation so you like the best? 

I hope that you will be able to come to the Library and Stamp Along next Monday! 
I will have the new catalogs there if you need one. It is online but it is just so much nicer to snuggle up with your own copy and make your wish list. Don't you agree? 

If you already have your copy of the catalog and wish to order online, please use the hostess code

Thank you!

Beautiful You in a gown

There are many ways to give this gal a gown. I chose the Pop of Paradise fern. 
This is a choice for you to make at the Stamp Along on June 12. 
Yes, I know, I am way ahead at posting cards this month. 

This one is very quick and easy using a new die cut. 
I think I will be using this one a lot!
Which one do you like the best?
Is it because of the color or the presentation? 
I think I like the one on the right for the color but the one on the left for the presentation. 
I have packed several colors so you can choose the one you like the best. 

The hostess code until the Stamp Along is


Thank you so much for you business! 
I appreciate it!

Half way to Christmas!

With the weather we have been having, Christmas could be right around the corner!
I keep hoping that it will warm up soon. 
The new Eastern Palace suit can be used to make a beautiful Christmas greeting. 
This one will be at the Stamp Along just in case you want to get started. 
Do you start your Christmas greetings early? Or do you wait until the last minute, like I do? 

This is the same set of dies that were used in the class that I posted a few posts ago. 
There is so much you can do with it!

The hostess code until May 29th is:


Thank you!

The New In Colors are coming soon!

The New in Colors will be at the Stamp Along in June!
This card features three of them. 
Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, and Lemon Lime Twist. 
This card would be good for any celebration.
 Since the saying says, "Congratulations on you New Adventure," it would be especially good
 for graduation, retirement, wedding, First Communion, or Confirmation. 
Do you like the vertical or the horizontal format the best? 


Do you know that you can get some very good deals on the retired and clearance sites? 
Check them out by going to "shop" crab on the right then clearance and everything else under
 the retired heading. 
If you find something there, just email me the numbers and I will order it for you or
order it on line using the hostess code


I will be sending the order in on the 29th of May.
Don't miss out on something by waiting until it is no longer available!
Thank you!

Eastern Palace Class

Eastern Palace Suite is a collection of beautiful items in the new catalog. 
There is a promotion that is available to you before the catalog is released. 
These are two bundles available now. 
I did a screen shot because I don't know how else to do it. 
You can see it better by going to the site.

The top one does not include the framelits. 

I will be doing a class with this suite of products on May 24th at Schroeder's in the basement at 12:30
The class will include the stamps and framelits and five cards.
The cost is $65.

You will be using my stamps and framelits at the class because yours won't be able to be ordered until June if you want the $65 bundle. 

However,  If you wish to order the Premier bundle listed above now (before the class) you will also receive the following cards free but you will need to use the stickers from your premier bundle.
The total for that package is $118. It includes a pack of the new heavier weight vanilla cardstock and a pack of vanilla envelopes free. This bundle includes all of the product in the suite - the DSP, the stickers, three of the new incolor ink pads, the embellishments, and a pack of cardstock.

 You would get all seven cards free with that order. 
Deadline for this is Monday, May 8th at the Stamp Along.
Or you can order it on line before then using the hostess code

These are the bonus cards.

Which one is your favorite?

One week to Stamp Along

Do you still need a Mother's Day card? 
Yes, I know this one says Happy Birthday but there is a stamp that say Happy Mother's Day 
that fits in the same space. 
If you know that you want to do this card, please let me know and I will put one aside for you. 
I didn't cut a lot of them so if you come a little later and want one let me know! 

How about a Father's Day card? 
This Nailed It set is such a nice set for masculine cards but has been retired and is no longer available. But, you can still make the card at the Stamp Along!

Do you need a graduation card this year? 
I have included choices of this blue, red, and orange for the background colors.
If you need a color, other than those, let me know and I will bring it along for you. 

If you are going to place and order on line before the Stamp Along, please use the 
Hostess code
Thank you to all of you that are so good to me in using the hostess code.

On Stage

On Saturday we went to the On Stage event in Minneapolis. 
It was quite the day for me! 
I told you a while ago that I have reached the 400K milestone in my SU! career.
I also shared that I received the card, letter, pin, and phone call. 
Now, I got to go across the stage and get a hug from the company representative that was here with us for this event. It was Bonnie Thurber. When you have been to as many events as I have, you get to know many of the company employees. She is one of the nicest people! 
It so happens that I was the only one present at that level achievement so I got to go on stage all alone! Often times at the big convention there are so many that you are in a long line, walking across the stage just waving to your friends in the audience. 
This was special! 

Ann went up to the stage to get this picture. 

Dawn took a couple of pictures of the big screen while I was on it. 
They also put your name on the screen but they missed that. 

Our name tags have a button the has a shape on it that indicates our symbol for a prize patrol. 
Carla, Dawn, and I had the same symbol so we all won the same set. 
Everyone wins, but after there is a demo for a new product they have the prize patrol and that group wins the set they just showed us. 

This is the group that stamped together on Saturday. 
Back row: Carolee, Ann (my upline), Carla (my sideline)
Front row: two of my downline; Sharie and Dawn
Share and I have only missed one convention since we started! 

Back at the room, after we went out for supper, we celebrated with some champaign!

I still haven't unpacked all of my swaps but I do plan to post them to share with you. 

Don't forget to check out the retired list. There are some really good deals on there. 
If you would like to email your order to me and take the chance that the items are still available when I order next week (as soon as I have an qualified "party") or you can order online and get it in right away. If you order online, please use the hostess code
Thank you! 

It is because of all of you that place orders with me that I had such a great time being On Stage at the On Stage event! 
Thank you!!!

Happy Easter!

New Catalog is coming soon!

On Stage was wonderful! 
Friday night I attended Center Stage which is for Silver Elite and above. 
They had a motivational speaker, a wonderful meal and a gift for us.

The tables were set so nicely.

There was a nice salad but it didn't get pictured. 

Main course was chicken that was so tender and delicious! 

Dessert was Cheesecake!

I sat with my upline, Ann and my stamping sisters.

We got the new catalog so it made going to bed at a reasonable time very difficult!

I will be able to order one for you at the beginning of May. They will be here in time for me to put one in with your order from the May Stamp Along. If you don't get one then, I will have them at the June Stamp Along. 

The retired list is out so if you NEED anything from the current catalog yet, check the list by going to my site and the store then retired. Many things are reduced in price. I will be placing an order next week but that is taking a chance that the item will still be available. 
You can order on line if you want to be sure to get it.
Please use the hostess code: 
Thank you!

April Stamp Along

Tomorrow I am heading to Minneapolis to see the New Stamping' Up! catalog! 
I am pretty excited about it as it will be a time with friends and sharing swaps and learning about the new things in the catalog. We will get instructions on the new products and see the new in-colors. 
Yes, I will have lots to share at the Stamp Along on Monday! 
Maybe the new catalog will come with me and you can take a quick peek at it! 
 Here are some of the cards that you can choose to make on Monday.

Spring is here and time to think about flowers! 

A Mother's Day card for those of you that need one. Or you can stamp Birthday instead of Mother's Day. Or you could send one to a young mother that you think is doing a good job raising her children. 

Are you a Cat person? Are you a Dog person? 
I have one for either. 
Aren't they just too cute?

Speaking of is a quick Easter card, in case you still need one more!

The next two use the tie dye. 
 I finally got around to playing with the candle punch. 

Using this DSP, you could color the number of the age of the person that will be receiving the card to personalize it a little more. 

I will also have some swap cards at the Stamp Along for you to see. 

If you would like to place an order on line, the hostess code for this time is

THANK YOU to EVERYONE that has hosted a workshop or placed an order during SAB.
YOU have helped me to achieve my goal of meeting the same amount of sales as last year! 
You, my customers, are very special to me! 

Hope to see you Monday!

More Stamp Along cards

Here are a few more cards that will be available at the Library on Monday.
This one uses the free set Avant Garden. 
The greeting is stamped too high (close to the image) but you can fix that when you stamp yours! 

The dragonfly with some of that free DSP.

These were made using the other free DSP. This is a technique for several quick cards.
You can choose the DSP design that you want. 
When you get your free pack you can cut it and make loads of quick and easy cards.

Hope to see you on Monday!
