I had gotten a couple of the Simply Sent packets and I have to say, I LOVE THESE kits!!! I made all these cards in less than 25 minutes!!! Sorry the one picture is blurry, but I think you can still see how simple they are and yet I'd be glad to give these as a gift or use them myself. I haven't decided which to do yet.
I had 1/2 sheet of the designer paper, 2 brads and 2 stickers left. I didn't follow the directions they had but still, I am very pleased. If you ever need to be able to make some quick cards these kits are awesome!!!!

So here's the front using riding hood red, white embossing. Then then I did a pocket on the inside and put a bookmark and a card she could send.
One of the pages using the flowers from Loads of Love to make a border on the top and the bottom of a page!
These are some of the individual pages. I used rub ons, stamps and color pencils to make each page different. Sorry some of the pictures are blurry.
MY Favorite page!!! I love the sunflowers.
Here are a few cards I've done with the new colors. Simple ones really. Sorry they are a little blurry, I've seemed to lost my touch since I've not used the camera in a while!
This one uses the new blues and some of the new designer papers! I LOVE the new scallop punch!!!!
This card uses the new colors, as well as rub ons. I love being able to do a card like this. This took less than 10 minutes to complete. I use the white gel pen to make the dots in the scallop!
Thanks for looking!

Welcome to a new catalog and new year for Stampin Up!!!
I'm going to list some dates and THEN explain some important stuff about the classes. If you have questions, PLEASE CONTACT ME.

Saturday Sept 20 - Stamp a Stack 2 - 6 (come and go as needed)
Friday Oct 10 - 6:30 - 8:30 monthly meeting

Friday Nov 14 - 6;30 - 8:30 monthly meeting
December 5 - 6:30 - 8:30 monthly meeting
There are 2 ways to participate in the monthly meetings:
1. Join the "club" - this means you will place an order for $15 each month. You will draw a month to receive the benefits of being a club member. More on that below
2. Call by the Thursday night before the club meeting and let me know you are coming and pay $5 for the class - no obligations and you can come when you want to.
WHAT WE DO AT MONTHLY MEETINGS:
This is actually a class time where you will learn one technique and make at least 2 cards. Sometimes we make other items besides cards. If you want to learn new techniques and try out different products, this is a great way to do it on a consistent basis. ALSO, if you make a card between meetings (or more than one) and bring to show the class, you will receive a gift.
Stamp a Stack
Stamp a Stack classes are card making opportunities - the cost is $25 or a purchase of $25 in merchandise - you will be able to make up to 25 normal size cards - if odd sizes are offered the number will be adjusted as needed to insure a good value for you. There will 3-5 options of cards to make and as always you can adjust the cards to fit your needs. Club members pay only $10 for these workshops.
Stamp Camp - is a weekend when my home will be open and several projects will be offered for you to make. At Stamp Camp - there will be Christmas Cards, Christmas Gifts and odds and ends for you to choose from. The cost will depend upon the project(s) you choose. I will e-mail and post on my blog the specific projects so you know beforehand. There will be discounts on items for club members.
1. If we have 8 - 10 members of the club then the hostess will receive hostess benefits for the month. However, if we do not have 8-10 members to ensure that everyone will receive hostess benefits the club members will be compensated with $30 in merchandise from the catalogs free on their individual month. If the sales for that particular month are higher than normal, additional benefits will be awarded. More on this at our first monthly meeting.
2. Club members will receive discounted prices for other stampin workshops.
3. Club members will receive a special gift when they sign up to be a part of the club.

But a really cool thing is this link I found to print your own designer paper! I had to share this before I did anything else. This is SO COOL and next week at a stamp camp I'm going to be using some of this just to show the ladies coming how they can make their own paper.
