Welcome Back

Hello Out There!

After a LONG hiatus, I am going to be back posting regularly.  It's been a BUSY summer here at our house kicking off in May with my sister's wedding, summer camps for the kids, trips to the beach, Stampin' Up! Convention, the birth of my niece....the list goes on!  I hope you all have been enjoying your summer, too.

Today I am going to share with you a few of my favorite things Stampin' Up! has going on for promotions, tomorrow I will have a Sunday share, and I'll be back with crafty inspiration on Monday with a card based on this week's Fab Friday sketch.  Go check it out and you can play along-I'd love to see what you create!

So first of all, Stampin'Up! has a GREAT My Paper Pumpkin special going on right now.  For only $10 for your first TWO months you get a ready to assemble creativity escape delivered to your door!  These kits are designed for new stampers, people who love the look of handmade cards/projects but don't have the time to design, prepare, and create them, seasoned stampers who (like me) love FUN mail, parents who have sent their kids off to college and want to set up a Skype date to create together, parents of younger children looking for a creativity outlet, groups of friends who want a fun creative night in....the list goes on!  Go check it out at  Sign up is easy (use the promo code PUMPKINDEAL to get your discount!!).  Your beautiful little red box will show up automatically after the 10th of each month.  It's easy to put your subscription on hold for a month or two if you need a break, and just as easy to cancel if you find it's not for you.  When you sign up, don't forget to choose me as your demonstrator.  Join this creativity adventure with me, it's fun I promise!

Another great thing they have right now are online classes.  Have you ever looked at a catalog and thought the projects are beautiful but there is no way you can do that, or, that you really like a product but you really aren't able to see the possibilities with it "outside the box", or maybe you want some fresh ideas.  If so, then these online classes are for you!  Stampin' Up! has put together beautiful projects with step by step instructions, and movies, to help you jump start your inner creative spirit.  You too can create Pinterest worthy products in no time! They have a Basics, Photopolymer (new type of stamp that I really like) and my favorite, the Washi Tape class.  You can check those out in my store here.

Lastly, if you love exclusive stamps, for their 25th anniversary each month Stampin' Up! is putting out a "Best Of" stamp.  With each set you purchase you will get a sticker for your card, if you collect at least 6 stickers, you will receive ANY 14.95 set out of the current Big Idea book FREE.  Here are the August Best Of stamps (again you can find these in my store):

Thanks for checking back in today! I'd love to hear from you--leave a comment with your favorite things to see when reading my blog.  Have a great Saturday!
