Mojo Monday # 92

Hello my friends,

Well, we are on the home stretch...only 1 more day of school!! My girls and I can't wait... we are so looking forward to the summer. 

It's been very hot and humid here this week, so it's a great time to play downstairs in my studio with some new products from the upcoming catalogue. I have to let you in on a secret......are you ready.........my new catalogues arrived yesterday!!! I will be having a Catalogue Open house and sale, watch for more details to follow this week.

I had some time to play around with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew that I wanted to use Circle Circus stamp set. This set is so fun and wild!!

Wedding Invitations

Hello,

It's been a busy day here. I spent most of the day working on some card kits, cleaning up my stamp area, laundry, re-arranging my shelves(re-organizing bins) and hanging out with my family. I can't believe that I go back to work tomorrow, and I'm not looking forward to making lunches again.

Last week at Regionals, my good friend Corinne Somerville did a WOW presentation. She wow the crowd with her wedding invitation and table favours. Her daughter is getting married in less then 7 weeks and she made their invitations. She shows us a variety of different styles. Here is one of the wedding invitations.

Barnyard Tails

Good Morning,

I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to relaxing this weekend. This is the first weekend that we don't have hockey. Boy does it feel weird not having to go to the rink but it also feels good just hanging out at home.

I wanted to share with you some Wow Presentation from Regionals. We were very lucky to have 4 local demonstrator's share their talent with us on stage. Heather Summers show us her amazing creations with SU punches. Did you ever think that you could make cute farm animal with your punches? Well, you can and wait to you see them!!

I think the best part of these cards were the back of it, seeing those cute tails...aah so cute!!

Of course, you need a cute holder for all your cards...well when you have farm animals you need a barn.

I wanted to share some of the projects that Linda, Shannon and Lori demonstrated for us . They work at the head office in Salt Lake City, Utah and they flew into London to spend the day with us!! Man, I wish I had their job...how fun would that to be. 

Here is a cute scrapbook page that Shannon demonstrated using the new Circle Scissor Plus cutter. Wow, this new circle cutter is amazing!!!
