September Stamp Club

New Stamp Club Beginning in September

Just in time to get started on your Christmas cards, a would like to start a new Stamp Club in September.

Stamp Club is a terrific way to budget your Stampin' Up! purchases and build your "stampin' stash" over a 6 month period AND receive hostess benefits!

At Stamp Club, you will make 3 cards each month using the latest Stampin' Up! supplies all while learning new stamping techniques. All the supplies will be cut and ready for you to assemble with step-by-step instructions.

Stamp Club is perfect for beginners AND expert stampers. Come and hang out, spend time with old and new friends while enjoying a couple of hours of creativity.

Stamp Club Members Receive
  • Free monthly class 
  • Free catalogue(s)
  • Your own personal bin, in my stampin' room, to store your snail, scissors, etc. No chance you'll forget your supplies if they're already here
  • Hostess benefits (in your hostess month) = free product (see chart below)
  • Hostess exclusive stamp sets (in your hostess month)
  • You can bring in outside orders from friends and family in your hostess month to increase your benefits!

  • Stamp Club "class" will be held over the 3rd weekend of every month starting in September and finishing in February. 
  • You can choose if you would like to attend class on Friday evening or Sunday afternoon - whichever works best for you that month.
  • Your commitment is to purchase a minimum of $35 in product before tax and shipping each month during the 6 month Club.
  • A hostess will be determined (before the 1st class in September) for each month. The hostess will be notified by me, of the amount of Hostess Rewards she has earned.
  • All orders will be place by me and shipped to me and will be available for pick-up once the order has arrived.
There are still spaces remaining for Stamp Club so please let me know if you'd like to join this fun, monthly get together!

If you have any questions about Stamp Club, please feel free to email, text or call me at your convenience.

Playing with Wood Words

Hello!  I hope you had a lovely long weekend. It was a good one for me....time to do lots of things that I enjoy...including a little bit of stamping.

I decided to get out my Wood Words stamp set and play around a bit. This is actually a really versatile stamp set.  Check out this gorgeous card that I CASE'd from Kylie Bertucci.
I am in LOVE with this card. I decided to try it first in one of the new
Stampin' Up! In Colours - Fresh Fig - but I just may end up making it in every colour.
The greeting is from a very retired stamp but it's one that I just love and
cannot bear to let go of.  
So I think that card is a good example of using the Wood Words stamps set for a nice, elegant card. You can also use this stamp set to make a really fun, "country'ish" card.  
In Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler, this card has a real
"barn yard" feel.
I wonder if any of you are thinking....doesn't that girl know that this is a rooster and not a chicken?  I used the (retired) "Hey Chick!" stamp set for the greeting because my sense of humour is a little twisted.  Speaking of retired stamp sets, if you purchased the Wood Words stamp set from me during the month of July, you could choose the Hey Chick stamp set for free from my bin of retired stamps.  

As well, for every $60 order placed in the month of July, you will earn a Bonus Coupon of $6 that you can use during the month of August. July is a great time to stock up on your stamp sets!

Looooong Weeeekend

July 1st is Canada's 150th Birthday!!  Happy Birthday Canada!!  You look great!

As a Canadian, we are very lucky to enjoy an extended summer weekend to celebrate and I am REALLY looking forward to some R & R.  My energy seems to be at an all-time low lately for some reason and I haven't accomplished any of things on my "summer to-do" list...nevermind getting any cardmaking or other crafting done.

But!  BUT!!  I am definitely going to carve out some time and boost up my energy and focus on my new Love Today Planner Kit which I received (I'm embarrassed to admit) a couple of WEEKS ago. It's still in the box but I'm dying to get started.  

In October I will be turning 52 years old (how in the heck did that happen?) and I have all of a sudden realized that I only have 8 years remaining to meet my goals so that I can live my "retire at 60" dream.  I've already started writing on little scraps of paper how much I need to save and what things I can cut out of our budget so that I can have more money left at the end of the month to save.....but I need my planner to keep track!!  

So in between my naps, watching the Blue Jays and an hour with a massage therapist on Sunday (can't wait for that!), I'll be busy planning, very stylishly, the coming year in my new Stampin' Up! planner. I'll post some picture early next week.
