Coming' Up!

Happy Monday everyone! Sorry for the radio silence over here on my little blog but trust me - I have been stamping and crafting like crazy in my stampin' cave.  Stamp-A-Stacks, Stamp Clubs, Craft Shows - it seems like all crafting/all the time.  I needed to come to work today just to get a little break.  Actually, last night, after Stamp-a-Stack, I started working on a few sets of cards for a craft show I am participating in on Sunday.  After working on one super cute set and being so happy with the results and then picking up the cards to slide into their little acrylic box and getting a big black thumb print on the front of it - I knew it was time to stop. 😠 

I thought I'd post a quick little update for those of you who are interested, on what's coming up in my little stampin' cave.

You can always check my SU website for further details but here's the quick and dirty run-down.

Sunday October 22nd 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. I am participating in The Mrkt.  I'll have items for sale as well as my BOGO table of retired stamp sets. I will be on hand and eager to "talk up" Stampin' Up! so if you'd like any more information about the Starter Kit or any of my classes - this would be a great place for us to meet in person.  Holiday Inn Yorkdale location. Free entry.

Friday November 3rd** 7:00 p.m. - Stamp This-Punch That class. We make 4 "sweet and simple" cards. Class fee is $20 but free with your qualifying order.

November 8th to 12th - I'll be attending On Stage in Salt Lake City. I'm very excited. I've attended local On Stage events in the past, but I've never been to Salt Lake City. This event is open to all demonstrators. If you would ever like to talk in further detail about buying the Starter Kit from Stampin' Up! and getting the opportunity to attend a fun On Stage event, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Sunday November 19th 2:00 p.m. - Stamp-a-Stack #4. Twelve (12!!) cards today. Beautiful holiday themed cards that you'll be happy to send to you family and friends. Please RSVP as soon as possible if you'd like to join us for this lively class. $30 but FREE with your qualifying order.

Saturday November 25th 1:00 p.m. - Fully Punched!  This class features a stamp set or bundle that you'll take home with you after class.  I'll be posting the featured items very soon so stay tuned and come back here to check it out!

Sunday November 26th 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. - Our Lady of Fatima Christmas Craft & Gift Market  My 2nd (and last) craft show this year. Located at 3176 St. Clair Ave. East - admission is free.  I'll be selling lots of handmade goodies so come out and say hello! 

**This will be an extra special class as one of my oldest and best customers turned friend will be celebrating a milestone birthday.  There will be champagne and some treats too. Feel free to bring presents for the birthday girl. :-)

I'll leave you now with a little bit of sparkly and shiny goodness from yesterday's Stamp-A-Stack class.

Happy "New Year" Everybody

October 1st marks the beginning of the Stampin' Up! New Year and they are celebrating with a lot of specials and sales and exciting  news!  Keep reading to see what's happening.

Stampin' Blends! (coming soon)

This is big news everybody.  Stampin' Up!'s hugely popular Blendabilities were, sadly flawed. They released them. We bought them in every colour. Some of them started to fail*.  Stampin' Up! discontinued them.  They've been working on perfecting a "blendable" alcohol marker for the past year or more.  I can't give you all the details yet but hopefully I can before the end of the year. Stampin' Up! is being extra careful this time around. Demonstrators will be buying them up and testing them before they are released to you.  Stay tuned.

*I still have all my Blendabilities and they have always worked perfectly fine.
