I have been away for a bit. Took my Mom on her first cruise. We went to Alaska and had a wonderful time. She is now hooked on cruising, so I expect we will be heading out again.

Today I started playing with my new stamps. I am so pleased with the new catalog. The stamps are very nice and the new stamp pads are wonderful. Here is the card I made this afternoon. Hope you enjoy.

Some of my go to items

I am so pleased that Tea Shoppe made it into the new catalog. It is one of my favorite stamp sets along with French Foliage, which I used on the background for this card. I also had to use a bit of silver Glimmer paper, just because.

As I post this I am waiting, not so patiently, for Mr. Brown to bring my new items. I plan to spend the evening surrounded by new treats. TFL

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in the Northwest. My DH and I went to an RV show to see what is new since last year when he bought me a nice new 26 foot trailer for my crafting. We call it the Craft Palace (CP.) We looked at many RV's and I came away very happy with last years purchase. It is vey comfortable and suits me quite well.

Today was another beautiful day. I was in the CP for several hours sorting and packaging cards for a craft fair I will be doing in December. I also took down all my sample cards from the current catalog so I can replace them with fun, new creations. (Mr. Brown comes tomorrow with my pre-order for the upcoming catalog release on June 1.) I have stored almost all of the retired stamp sets, there are a couple I will be continuing to use for special projects.

I even had time to make a couple of cards and thought I would share one with you this evening. TFL.

I joined Stampin' Up! in February of 2008 for the business opportunity. Since then I have changed my focus and continue with SU! mostly as a "hobby demo". I have people on my team who also enjoy SU! as a business and as a hobby.  We get together once a month with a larger team (my upline) and have a good time sharing card swaps, learning new techniques, and completing make and takes brought by demos. It is a very good way to keep up with what is going on with SU! and also to get together with a nice group of people who enjoy paper crafts, good food (yes, we always have food), laughs, and being around other happy people.
I do hold Stamp-a-Stack events, do an occasional craft fair, and am open to doing stamp clubs and camps. As a demo I get a nice discount on SU! products and I have the opportunity to order new products in advance. SU! is a part of my day to day life and I love it.

Why am I sharing this with you?
Beginning TODAY (and for the duration of the new catalog), Stampin' Up! will be offering a new, customizable Starter Kit at a lower price of $99!  Ladies and Gentlemen . . . start your paper crafting engines!
 CHOICES:  When you purchase the kit, you can choose up to $125 of ANY (yes, ANY) current Stampin' Up! quality products.  You'll also receive a business supplies pack valued at $65.  The total value of the kit is $190 and it ships for FREE!  This is a fabulous deal, whether you are a hobby stamper or want to be a business demonstrator!
Think about it . . . great deals, exclusive resources and new stamping friends with no pressure to sell or hold workshops (but lots of advice and support if you do).  There's no penalty to drop!
