Product of the Week: Many Blessings

One of the things that makes me want to buy a stamp set the most is it's versatility. The Many Blessings stamp set from Stampin' Up is no exception. The images are perfect for Fall, Christmas and the flower image takes you into spring and summer depending on the colors you use. 

The other wonderful thing about the set is the area that you have to color is small, which means easy-peasy for you! You'll want to add this stamp set NOW to use it for both Fall and Christmas then summer and spring. 

Don't forget to pick up your blends for coloring. Blends colors used: 
Pumpkins: Pumpkin Pie 
Apple: Real Red *NEW
Gourds; Call Me Clover *NEW
Leaf: Mango Melody *NEW
Leaf: Cajun Craze *NEW

Country Home: Product of the Week!

Country Home Suite

I don't know if cotton stirs up memories for you, but we would drive to my Grandparent's house in Southeastern Arkansas, we would pass cotton field after cotton field. I just love this rustic farmhouse look of the Country Lane Suite and the Country Home stamp set from Stampin' Up.  

Some of my favorite things in the suite are the Tin Tile embossing folder and galvanized tin paper.  The designer paper is to die for. Here is a card I made for card class. Don't you just love the galvanized buttons?

Epic Team Meeting Recap: The Time Stampin' Up Came To Town!

What's better than our monthly Pretties Team Meeting? Inviting Chad Williams, Demonstrator Development Manager from Stampin' Up! and tons of other Arkansas demonstrators. Chad is over 7 states, AR being one of them and he accepted our invitation to attend one of our team meetings. We had to move to a bigger location for the 37 people that attended

We learned all about craft fairs. Everyone left with 4 cute items to sell at a craft fair. A Rice Krispy Treat holder, two chocolate treats and a K-Cup box. Stinkin' adorable, right? Ronda Wade designed these cuties. Thanks to Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart and Suzie Jones who helped me cut 200 make and take packets! Chad asked us to go big, so we did. 

Everyone was happy to hear about the new Demonstrator Development Team from Chad

Then he wow'ed us with shimmer paint on stamps!

Cindy Griffin wow'ed us with the Buffalo Plaid, plaid maker technique

Elizabeth snowed us all on the Snowflake Showcase bundle (available for a limited time only for demonstrators now and to customers 11/1)

Susie made us all want to buy Dashing Deer after her fab presentation

Dana Hobby has advanced from Bronze to Silver just since March and she shared her secrets to success

Sandy Risi from Jonesboro talked to us all about Craft Fairs

Team swaps were outrageously cool

Stampin' Up updates from Stampin' Up employee, yippee! 

Cindy put together a cutie gift bag for Chad for him to remember his trip to Arkansas

Chad brought the WHOLE FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS BUNDLE to give away and Sandy was the lucky winner

So.many.prizes.... Thanks to my team leaders for donating scores of goodies

We ended the night with the Silver Elite's (minus Patience who was out of town, sniff sniff) and Chad stamping a gorgeous Dashing Deer card supplied by Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart.  I can't imagine a more perfect end to a perfect day.

Holiday Retreat 2018 RECAP

Imagine summer camp with 25 of your craftiest friends! There is not much more amazing than spending the weekend with women who love Stampin' Up as much as I do.  This past weekend was my Holiday Craft Retreat weekend at Ferncliff Conference Center. It is a gorgeous camp and this was our largest group yet with crafters from El Dorado, Oklahoma, Hot Springs, Texarkana and Malvern!

The weekend starts with preparations galore, make and takes, pillow gifts, etc.

Each guest was greeted with their packet of goodies and this tea light snowman lantern

Everyone's favorite - Getting to know you games

Swaps galore and prizes galore! I will post later about swaps

I love to spoil my ladies, these pillow gifts surprises were tons of fun!

Make and Takes were adorable and we elf'd ourselves silly!

Everyone got excited about the Christmas Pajama contest and Dessert Bake Off. We all gained 5 lbs, I am sure.

Thanks to my fantastic helper Cindy Griffin for all her hard work and the many other helpers that just pitched in this weekend. It takes a village!

We all were very happy with what we got done and can't wait until we do this again in the Spring! 
Until next year!  March 1-3 is the date and registration opens 10/27. I expect it to fill fast since we are at capacity for this space.  Mark your calendars to register on the 27th!  I will post a bit on FB and send out an email. Click here to get added to my email list!

Product of The Week: Falling For Leaves +SHIMMER!

I love exploring new techniques with my monthly stamping technique club. This month we played with shimmer paint. SO FUN! I am surely falling for the Falling For Leaves stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog. The coordinating detailed leaves framelits are heavenly! You will surely want to add this to your fall collection of stamp sets and framelits.  

For this card, we stamped the sentiment on the base in a brick wall fashion which was so fun! Then the stitched shape square was cut from the gorgeous Country Lane fall paper. The star of the show, though is the detailed leaf painted with shimmer paint! 

Orders of $40 or more which use this hostess code: 4SSEJFWB will receive a full color PDF with instructions to make this gorgeous card and 5 gorgeous handmade cards in the mail!
