Posts from June 2013


I hope you enjoyed the SUDSOL Blog Tour yesterday.  There were some great projects shared, don't you agree?

Now for some bad hard drive on my computer DIED this week.  I am waiting on my computer guy to tell me if it can be revived or if I'll need to replace it.  Either way, I have very limited access to a computer right now.  Here is what that means for you:

  • Slightly longer wait times for email response.  Please allow up to 48 hours.
  • No video project this month for the Virtual Stamp Club members.  However, I will be sending you a PDF tutorial in the mail, along with a bonus sample.  Depending on when my computer returns to life, you may still get a video.
  • Minimal blog posts.  I'll be updating my FACEBOOK page, so if you haven't liked it already, you might want to follow me there.

The last thing I did on my computer was list all of my retired stamps, punches, and big shot dies for sale.  You can see the list here.  If you email me, I will try to get back with you as quickly as possible.  Just be patient with me.  ;0)

SUDSOL Blog Tour

Welcome to the Sudsol Blog Tour!  It is so much fun to see what everyone has created.  The demonstrators of SUDSOL are always sharing great ideas.

I have been a member of SUDSOL for 11 years and I highly recommend it to all my demonstrator friends.  This group has been my "upline"---always available to help me in all aspects of my business.  You can take a FREE 2-week trial to see if it is right for you.

SUDSOL - 24/7 Upline

Sometimes the new catalog can be a bit overwhelming.  You don't need everything to create a wide variety of projects.  Here are 3 cards that you can create with 1 package of Designer Series paper, 1 stamp set, and a few embellishments.  

Here is what you'll need:

STAMP SET:  Label Love

INK:  Melon Mambo, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight

PAPER:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzaz, Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper

ACCESSORIES:  Paper Doilies, Brights Candy Dots, Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain

PUNCHES:  Artisan Label, 3/16" Corner, 2-1/2" Circle, 7/8" scallop circle


This is such a simple card.  I'm not sure who will be receiving it.....I've got a lot of "best friends".  LOL


I love the color combo of Island Indigo and Daffodil Delight, don't you?

I hope you've enjoyed these projects.  Click the links below to continue on the tour.

New Catalog Launch Party

This morning, I held my new catalog launch party for my local customers.  I thought you might like to see what we did.  ;0)

Our Make & Take featured the 2013-2015 In Colors and the Mosaic Madness Bundle.  The "happy birthday" is from a hostess set called Banner Greetings.


The Mosaic images were stamped in Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantelope, and Coastal Cabana.  Then, they were punched with the coordinating Mosaic punch.  And don't you love the matching embossing folder?  Just think of all the fun combinations you can create with these products!!

Everyone that placed an order at the open house got to take one of these cute treats home with them (inspired by Becky Roberts).  I wrapped chocolate bars in the Gingham Garden Designer Series's definitely one of my favorites!  The clothespins were covered with the coordinating Washi Tape

Virtual Club-001

Several of my customers decided to sign up for the Virtual Stamp Club.  As a bonus, they received a "Colors I Own" book to keep track of their ink pad, re-inker, and marker purchases PLUS a bonus FREE ink pad of thier choice.  I am going to extend this bonus to anyone that signs up for the Virtual Stamp Club before June 3rd.

You will need to fill out the form and place your order online using the hostess code VTVTYVR4 to receive the bonus items (will ship separately).

And ANYONE that places an order of $35 or more this weekend (before tax & shipping) will receive FREE candy dots.  Again, you must use the hostess code VTVTYVR4 at checkout and your bonus will ship separately.
