Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit

I love this kit! It has everything you need to make 20 cards of different sizes and for different occasions.
Stampin' Up! is promoting it as a kit for those who have not yet really experienced Stampin' Up!'s products. However, I think it's a great kit for anyone who enjoys making cards. I have seen several videos that other demonstrators have made to show off this product and I am quite impressed!

This Week's Card Class

What a wet week we are having here in North Port. Too wet for me!
Since it's so wet out here, I thought we would try something new. Instead of having the class out here at the studio, I am going to try having the class at the Panera Bread on Tamiami Trail. It is in the same plaza as the Hobby Lobby.

The classes will be at the same times as usual, Thursday at 6PM and Friday at 10AM. You will need your basic class kit. Class is $10.00.

Use the Buy Now button to register for class or to purchase a kit. Payment needs to be received by Wednesday evening in order to ensure a spot in the class or a kit.

Win our NEW Envelope Board – FREE!

I’m SO Excited about our HOT, NEW product coming out on September 1st — an Envelope Board!!b1_EnvelopePunch_demo_aug1513_NA

And I’m giving them away for FREE!!!

All you have to do is shop my online store here and apply Workshop Code  SHHNM7FE  in your shopping cart.
This special is only available to ONLINE ORDERS and cannot be combined with any other discounts or special prices.
For EVERY $35 you spend you will be entered to win, and I will draw a winner for every 5 qualifying orders!
Spend $35, get a 1 in 5 chance of winning.
Spend $70, get a 2 in 5 chance of winning.
The more people that order with the code, the MORE envelope boards that will be given away – so spread the word!
I have no limit to the # that will be given away — 1 board for every 5 $35 increments!

And EVERYONE who orders will receive a card & envelope made with this new Envelope Board in the mail from me. So even if you don’t win a board, you WILL get a little happy in the mail! The card and envelope set will be inside another envelope so that you can re-use them : )

Why does this Envelope Board Rock?
  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It’s super easy to use; it looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you’ll go crazy (in a good way).
  • It’s small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it with you wherever you create. It’s super portable and easy to store – small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend’s for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It’s easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year’s annual catalog, so it’s here to stay.

You have until August 31st to place your qualifying order. On September 1st, when the envelope board becomes available for purchase, I will do the drawings, announce the winners, order the boards for the winners and get the card & envelope sample out to everyone who ordered!!!

In order to qualify for this promotion, you must shop my online store here AND apply Workshop Code SHHNM7FE in your shopping cart. If you don’t enter the Workshop Code, I’m unable to apply it after the order has been placed and unable to give you credit. If you have any questions on how to enter the Workshop Code, please e-mail me.

OMGoodness! Must Have!!

Look at these awesome new dies. They are awesome!!

They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step.
There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Plan to feature these dies in your events and share the video. When your customers see what they can do, they will place their orders.
These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)
With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!

Label Card Thinlits Die (item 133479):
Pairs great with:
 Happy Day Stamp Set (item 130294 W item 130297 C)

Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):
Pairs great with:
 Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W) and Five-Way Flower Stamp (item 131088 W)

Both card dies pair well with:
  Oh, Hello Stamp Set (item 131931 W item 130733 C)
  Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (item 131341 W item 131344 C)
  Really Good Greetings Stamp Set (item 130330 W item 130333 C)
  Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set (item 130324 W item 130327 C)

Stampin' Up! is so "with it"!

I really have to say that I LOVE Stampin' Up! I have worked for the company for close to 12 years now and they are constantly trying new things and always eager to stay on the cutting edge of the stamping and paper crafting world as well as staying on top of the new technology available.

I just found out that there is a video imbedded in the cover of the new 2013-2014 Idea Book/Catalog. "Say what?", you say. Oh yeah. Right there, in front of our eyes. However, in order to see it, you need a smart phone or tablet. You will need to download the FREE app called Layar. Once you go that, you can scan the cover of the catalog and see a video.

Go check it out and tell me what you think. Better yet, tell Stampin' Up! what you think. They love feedback from all of you. They are always listening to out ideas and yes, complaints. Then the try to improve.

So much fun on NSD!

We had such a wonderful day last Saturday at our National Scrapbook Day. I wanted to share some of the lovely creations that were made. I love how they all look very different from each other. Just like all of us. LOL! Some of them were not complete yet when I took pictures. I can't wait to see the end product.

Thank you, my friends, for sharing this fun day with me! XO, Mimi

More National Scrapbook Day info, as promised

Here's the nitty gritty on NSD, next Saturday, May 4th. "May the 4th Be With You" LOL!
I will have a few different projects you can make. You don't have to sign up for all of them. You can pick and choose what you want to do. Or, if you would rather just come and enjoy the celebration, that's fine too.
The Studio opens at 10AM and we will play on into the night. There will be snacks to enjoy and water. Feel free to bring something to share.

First up is the Family Album. This project starts at 11AM and should be done by 2PM.
I was able to take more pictures of the Family album that you can make. There really is a lot of room for photos and journaling in this small package, with 14 pages that measure 4 3/4" x 6 3/4". Here is a photo of some of the pages and goodies we will be using in the book. Lots of yummyness!

I also have this set of All Dressed Up cards and box. This would make a beautiful Mother's Day gift! Cost is $15.00 and  starts at 2 and should be done by 4.
Next up is this sweet spring wreath. Cost is $15.00 or $10.00 if you bring your own grapevine wreath.Starts at 5 and should be done by 7.

The last project is a pretty wall hanging using the All Dressed Up framelits. Think Paris and Pretty! Cost is $15.00 and starts at 7 and should be done by 8:30.
 If you would like to make any of these fun projects or you would just like to come hang out for the day, please RSVP by Wednesday.

National Scrapbook Day is Coming!

I told you a week or so ago to keep on the look-out for something fun that I am planning for NSD!
Well, I am finally ready to start revealing some goodies.

First up is a Family Mini Album using Teresa Collins paper collection "Family Matters".
This great little album gets tucked away in it's own little box to keep it safe for years to come.
All of the pages are chipboard that is covered with the TC paper and measure 4 3/4" x 6 3/4".
The 14 pages accordion fold and tie with a bow so they will fit perfectly in the box.
The finished book would make a wonderful gift or be stingy and keep it for yourself! LOL!
All materials are included in the cost of $25.00. You just need a basic class kit.

I will get more pictures posted tomorrow.

Next Week's Class Samples

Yes, I know, it's hard to believe that I am already set for next wee. I'm shocked myself. LOL!
I'm finally getting the hang of this weekly class schedule, thanks to all of the wonderful friends I have that help me!
These cards all showcase the stamp set Postage Due. Thankfully, this set is not on the retiring list. I ordered it shortly after its release and am just starting to use it.


Classes for next week are Wednesday morning at 10AM and Thursday evening at 6PM.
Cost is $10.00. A basic class kit is needed. If you would like to join us or would like to order a kit, please let me know no later than 10AM Tuesday morning.
Thanks for stopping by.

"Why you want to leave me?"

My daughter and I enjoy using that line from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". That was a fun movie. I'll have to break it out and watch it again.
Well, that's how I feel every time Stampin' Up! decides to retire colors and bring in new ones. My initial reaction is always sad, like I am losing an old friend. But, when I see the new colors, I see why they feel the need for change.
This week's class uses some of those old friends that are going away. For example, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Certainly Celery. I will miss them but I'm sure I will become fast friends with the new ones!
If you would like to come to the class, please RSVP by Tuesday morning as I make all of my kits on Tuesday.
Classes will be on Wednesday morning at 10AM and Wednesday evening at 6PM.
The evening class is usually on Thursdays, however, I have other plans for Thursday evening so I need to have class on Wednesday evening.
Cost is $10.00.
You will need a basic class kit with adhesive, glue dots, pop dots, scissors, etc...
