Hello, Stamping Friends!

Wow – the reactions to my last two blog hop posts has been overwhelming – thank you SO much for visiting my blog, and leaving your wonderful comments!  It means a lot to me, and I enjoy reading every single word πŸ™‚  

These blog hops have really helped me to not only create more consistently, but to also stretch myself and try new and different techniques, styles and even stamp sets that I may not have used otherwise.  I have been enjoying it very much, and I'm looking forward to continuing with the 2 amazing groups that I'm part of; the Wacky Watercooler group and The Creation Station team.  I'm thrilled to be a part of these teams; the talent, creativity and generosity of sharing is wonderful; I have to pinch myself sometimes to believe that I'm part of the groups πŸ™‚

So thank you, my Stamping Friends, for your support of our blog hops!

Would you like to part of a group of caring, sharing and creative people?  I'd love to have you join my team – and Stampin' Up! is making it even easier for you to join, starting on May 28th!

There are 2 ways to join – you can choose the Traditional Starter Kit at $125 ($155 product value), OR for 4 weeks only you can choose a reduced price Starter Kit of $60 ($65 product value) !  What a great way to start your own business, or simply to take advantage of demonstrator discount and perks.  Perks, you ask?  That's right – with whichever kit you choose, you still receive all the perks as a demonstrator20% discount on ALL purchases; up to 30% discount on your first demonstrator order; access to demonstrator-only 'Stampin' University' for training; receive new catalogues in advance of the public, plus pre-orders before the catalogue goes 'live'.  Not only that, but as part of my Team – The INKcredibly Creative Crew – you have phone/email/in person access to me for direct support and training; 1/2 price on all my classes; inclusion in Team gatherings and meetings.  

The Reduced Price Starter Kit at $65 will be available only between May 28th – June 30th.  The traditional starter kit is available always.  If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them for you – just give me a call at 604.298.0472 or email me at debsmart@shaw.ca  I'm looking forward to talking to you about this amazing opportunity!

I'd also like to remind you that the Retiring List is still active, and there are a lot of items still available!  Get yours while you can, before June 4th.  

This week's Weekly Deals are also available this week – lots of great ribbons on sale!

I'd like to share one more card I made, while I was playing with the Work of Art stamp set (you'll be able to order it on June 2nd, from the New Catalogue).  I decided to try some 'free-form' stamping (getting out of my 'comfort zone' again), and this is what I came up with:

What do you think?  I stamped the brush lines in Hello, Honey and Tangelo Twist (both new In Colours), and stamped the sentiment in Lost Lagoon (another new In Colour).  The colour cardstock panels are in Hello, Honey and Tangelo Twist; the Baker's Twine is in Summer Starfruit (retiring) and Calypso Coral.  I think it looks okay; like I said, it's a different style for me, but I think I like it πŸ™‚  I do love the new In Colours – no doubt about that, though!

If you haven't already RSVP'd, please let me know if you'll be coming to my Open House on May 30th; you'll get to see, touch and play with some of the newest products and inks from the New Catalogue, plus of course there will be Make & Takes, Prizes, Refreshments, and of course – your very own Catalogue to take home!!  Just let me know if you're attending, so I can make sure that there will be Make & Take's for everyone πŸ™‚

Now, I'm back to getting ready for my newest club – Technique Junquies on Funky Fridays!  We'll be meeting the last Friday of each month, and learning new techniques in stamping, and paper-folds.  There's room for 1 more person, if you'd like to join in the fun πŸ™‚

Until next time – happy Stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
