Look What We'll Be Making in September

How did September get here so quickly? It's hard to believe that fall is just around the corner. It's one of my favorite times of the year - football games, cooler temperatures, leaves changing colors, Pumpkin Spice lattes and all the fall holidays! 

This month we'll be creating some adorable cards in my monthly stamp classes. Each month we create 3 cards for FREE (with your minimum order). If you live in the Dallas / Fort Worth area and you'd like to join the stamping fun at class, be sure to RSVP for the time you'll be attending.


The first card we'll be making features the Varied Vases bundle (stamp set with coordinating punch). 


The second card features all new products from the Holiday Catalog (the Holiday Catalog begins tomorrow, September 5!). The Falling for Leaves stamp set is bundled with the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies for only $44 (item #149938). Save 10% when you purchase the bundle as compared with purchasing the items separately.



The third card we'll be creating also features new products you'll find in the Holiday Catalog - Making Christmas Bright stamp set bundled with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch ($35; item #149947). Isn't this card adorable?



I look forward to stamping and creating with you in September!

Happy Stamping,

A Morning with Chad from Stampin' Up! Home Office

What a great way to start a Tuesday morning! Talking Stampin' Up! with Chad Williams from home office as well as doing a little stamping. He brought the most adorable make-n-take project (keep reading to see the card we made with products from the upcoming Holiday Catalog!).


And, for all of us to make it to Ol' South at 8 am - not bad!

Chad is our Demonstrator Development Manager and he has been visiting demonstrators in his region and we were one of the groups he selected! What fun!


Our demonstrator group meets each month at Ol' South Pancake House so we thought it would be a perfect place for Chad to come for breakfast, to get a little taste of a Fort Worth tradition.


Love that Chad brought a project for us. For once, we got to stamp without having to prepare everything.


My amazing friend and first recruit (from over 10 years ago!), Cindy, promoted this month to Silver Elite! I'm so proud of her! Chad and I helped her these past few weeks to get that last bit she needed to promote. In the Stampin' Up! world, this is a BIG deal!




And, now, what you really wanted to see... the cute card featuring new products!


Isn't that the cutest? Below are the supplies we used on this card. (Products from the Holiday Catalog will be available starting Wednesday, September 5.)

Stamps: Making Christmas Bright (photopolymer 148046)

Ink: Call Me Clover, Crushed Curry, Real Red, Memento Black
Paper: Call Me Clover card stock, All is Bright Designer Series Paper, Real Red card stock, Whisper White card stock
Accessories: Triple Banner Punch, All is Bright Paper Clips, 2 1/2" Circle Punch

The Holiday Catalog goes live on Wednesday, September 5. Just thought I'd include a picture of the front of the catalog (to tease you just a little more!). I can't wait for you to see the inside!



Being a part of the Stampin' Up! family has been the biggest blessing to me. I signed up over 12 years ago and can't imagine being a part of any other crafting company. You can be a part of it, too! When you purchase your Starter Kit, you'll not only join the Stampin' Up! family, you'll also join my downline family, the Cowtown Crafters (my downline team)


What a memorable morning! A huge "Thank You!" to Chad for coming today!

Happy Stamping,

Annual BOGO Sale is Coming!

It's that time of year again - BOGO Sale time! This is one event of the year you don't want to miss! Every year Stampin' Up! retires LOTS of amazing products and, as a demonstrator, I can no longer use them in my classes and events. So, I need to clear out my retired stash and you get to snag some deals! 




Here's how it works:

  • Make any purchase from the new Annual Catalog.
  • Receive the same amount (before shipping and tax) in retired products from my stash for FREE! You get to pick the products you'd like!
  • There are tons of retired products to choose from - card stock, ink pads, embellishments, Big Shot dies and embossing folders, ribbon and so much more!

Just take a look at SOME of the retired products that will be in my BOGO Sale. (This is just a small sampling of what will be available.)


In addition to all this card stock, I also have lots of 12 X 12 Designer Series Paper.


Big Shot Framelits, embossing folders and other tools (like punches!) will be available.


No way could I take pictures of all the accessories and ribbons I have. (I'm a ribbon and paper junkie!)



This is only one of several boxes of stamps.



If you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and would like the exact address location, please send me a message. I hope you'll be able to join me on Saturday, June 30th for this annual event!

Happy Stamping,
