Spookucalator Kit Extended

Hello,

I can't believe that it's the last long weekend of summer. We are happy and sad at the same time. We love the lazy days of summer but I also know we need structure in our lives and we are looking forward to the start of hockey. Okay, ask me in a few months if I still feel the same way about hockey. LOL

Stampin' Up! announced yesterday that they are extending the Starter Kit and the Spookucalator Artisan Tray till Sept 16. This means you still have time to join my team and earn that gorgeous Halloween Tray. We can read all about this special offer here.

Thank You Cards

 

Hello,

I love sending my customers thank you cards in the mail. It's a nice surprise from all those bills that they get! I love using the Note Cards as they are the perfect size and you can do so much with them. I saw this idea on Angie's blog and thought they would be perfect. I tried to spend a few hours a month, and make a few different designs so that I always have a variety to give them and it's a great way to show off our product!

Googly Ghouls Designer Kit

Hello,

I have to admit that sometimes I overlook the designer kits in the catalogue. But I was "WOWED" while I was at Convention with Shannon West presentation on main stage. She demonstrated how to use this kit and made some amazing projects with it. So as soon as I got home, I had to order the kit. LOL

The one thing that I loved when she showed us was how to run the glassine bags through the big shot. Seriously, why didn't I think of that!!

Snowflakes Soiree

Hello,

You know that I couldn't resist purchasing this adorable snowflake stamp set as I had to add it to my collection of Winter stamps! LOL

So many delightful snowflakes to choose from! Sprinkle them on cards, scrapbook pages, and tags--or give the set away as a lovely holiday gift. To make your snowflakes sparkle and shine, stamp using VersaMarkĀ® ink. Apply Heat & Stick powder to the inked image, heat until the powder turns to liquid, then pour on Stampin' Glitter. Shake off excess glitter, heat briefly to set, and you're done. It's so easy!
