Hot off The Press! New Product Announcement!

OMG!  As if Stampin' Up! hasn't created enough excitement with our product specials this month!  Along with our INKredible ink offer we now have BIG news to share!!!  SU! has just announced the following:

Due to our partnership with Sizzix, we are pleased to be able to offer a test run of the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine in our North American markets. We have 4,000 available to be sold only while supplies last. If this product test goes well, we may offer the Texture Boutique again in the future.
The Texture Boutique works with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to transform ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum into an embossed, textured masterpiece. This machine embosses only; it does not die cut. Because this is a product test, the Texture Boutique is not branded with the Stampin' Up! logo. It comes in Sizzix packaging and is the same color and design that is sold in stores. We recommend you read the included instructions before using the Texture Boutique and that you pass the same recommendation on to customers who purchase it.
'Tis the season of giving, and the Texture Boutique makes a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to create their own elegant embossed art. To help you with your gift-giving needs, we're offering a special value bundle that saves you $5.90. If you prefer, you can also purchase the Texture Boutique alone. Looking for stocking stuffers? Pick up some additional embossing folders.

Holiday Catalog Swap

These are some cards I created for a swap I participated in with other demonstrators from SUDSOL this week.

I used the following supplies to create my card:
  • Scentsational Season Clear-Mount Bundle Stamp set and Framelits
  • Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die
  • You Are Loved Clear-Mount Stamp Set
  • Very Vanilla, Early Espresso cardstock
  • Cherry Cobbler, Basic Grey and Green Gumball Ink pads
  • Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Dots Ribbon
  • Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper

Here's how I created the card. 
  1. First I stamped 2 of the Coffee Mug images on Very Vanilla cardstock using Cherry Cobbler ink.  Then, I cut them out using the matchin Framelit design and my Big Shot.  For the mug on the left, I cut the handle off the mug image right along the edge of the mug and glued it to the other side of the mug.  Then, I glued the 2 mug images together.
  2. Next, I cut Very Vanilla with the Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die and my Big Shot and glued the Mug images to the center towards the top of the diecut.
  3. Then, I stamped the steam image in Basic Grey directly on top of each mug and the Oval Accent diecut.
  4. Next, I stamped the sentiment from You Are Loved stamp Set in Gumball Green at the bottom of the Oval Accent diecut.
  5. As an accent, I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Dots ribbon in a knot and looped it around the right side of the Oval Accent diecut.
  6. Finally, I added the diecut with dimensionals to the center of a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Candlelight Christmas Designer Paper on top of a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" scored card from Early Espresso Cardstock.

I Am Open For Business

Today, I took a class featuring Carrie Cudney at SU! Convention 2012 called "I Am Open For Business". I got super great tips for running my business. I'm planning some awesome things for Play Day! I even recruited a special guest to join us, Ann Cardile. She just earned Founder's Circle this year! This is an exclusive honor in Stampin' Up!

Doing business "My Way"!

Ronda Wade and Tami White just gave a great presentation at SU! Convention 2012 on how they customize their business to fit their life and their customers' needs.  This is my favorite thing about working with Stampin' Up!  It's not about power selling and making phone calls.  It's getting people together and building relationships.  I found my BFF through stamping and countless other special friends.  I sure would like to share it with you too!

2 days till SU! Convention Trip 2012

I am so excited!  This is my first time to go to Stampin' Up!'s Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.  My downline and I are going for the whole week and do everything we can!  Check out the list of things I have to get ready before the trip:

  3. Finish the 22+1 3x3 card swap - I've gone about 10 done so far.
