Customer Appreciation Night

Thank you gifts for my customers.
Everyone who came received a little bag of goodies.

and if they RSVP'd the got this little something extra. There were 16 who attended and RSVP'd. I had 6 call and cancel the day of, wish they could have attended.

Here's one of the cards we made last night. My down-line Shannon came up with this one and I ask her if it was Ok if I CASE'd it for my event. Thanks Shannon! I just love this card.!

Then they all got to make a Big Shot purse. This version was a little easier because we did not add the extra circle to the lid. If you want to know what I'm talking about , scroll down to my first purse I did. They got to fill these with Easter Candy and of course Dove Chocolate!

This is another card I had them make. I got this idea from someone's blog and I'll have to see if I can find it. She said she got it from the back of one of our Stampin' Success Magazines. The last project I had them start was a SU Stampin' Up Punch Card set. These cards have all the different punches on them and the numbers. Got the template from SCS's. We did 4 cards last night and will do the other 4 another time. Then I plan on laminating the cards and putting them on a ring for my customers. It's a great tool to have! Well that's it for now, I've got to go be a "go-for" and get some anhydrous tanks for my son. We are starting to do some field work! So come back some time and stamp a little longer with me.

Here comes Peter Cotton Tail...

I just love Stampin' Up's punches! They are so fun to play with. Here's a couple of bunnies I made using the new scallop oval, small oval, 1 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, 1/4" circle, and 1/4"square punches. I layered (2) 1/2" circles on top of each other to give the eyes some depth and cut the 1/4"square into triangles for the noses. I had a hard time drawing the mouth so on the bunny at the bottom I used a scallop circle (I had punched out) for a template, and traced two of the scallops for the mouth,which I thought turned out alot better! I'm thinking I'm on a roll, but I better go do some housework. Yuck!

Top Note Materials Swap

I'm so excited to be in a Top Note 50 Materials Swap for Demos on Split Coast. I chose 1/16" bass wood for my part of the swap. The Big Shot cut them out with no problem, didn't hurt my die at all. I can't wait to get all the different materials back and to make a ring to show my customers what all you can run through this machine! I need to go find some more stuff to run through that machine!!! Have a great day!

Rockabilly, Rocks!

Ok, here's what I did with some of the "finds" from K-mart. I love this DSP called Rockabilly, although I don't "love" skulls, I'm happy to say I love the rest of the paper and the other side of the skull paper. The small box is a coupon box, I think, which would also make a cute small tissue box. (I put the initial on the back of it.) This is going to be a hostess gift for a friend who will be having a party in a couple of months. I can't believe I've already got her gift done!!! Happy St. Paddy's Day! everyone. Come back soon so we can "stamp a little longer".

Bargain Shopping!!!

Look what I found today! Our local K-mart is going out of business and they had their stationary department on sale for 30% off and it was already on clearance! It's a good thing my DH wasn't with me because I cleaned them out of a few things. I love these journals and notebooks! They are perfect to alter or just stamp on. Check back tomorrow and see what I've done so far. Doin' the happy dance!!!

Happy Dance!

I am so excited! I had 2 ladies sign up to be demonstrators this past week! So that means I promoted to Senior Supervisor! Welcome, Laura Boatman and Kelly Wood to the wonderful world of Stampin' Up! Although these ladies are really good customers (which I hate to lose) I am so excited to be able to share my love of this company with them. Anyone else want to join them? It's a great time to join with the starter kit only being $169 plus another FREE set valued up to $48.98 and a FREE SAB set from me, it's a deal you can't pass up! Oh, and 30% off your first order, just think the Big Shot for 30% off! I've got to quit rambling and get off of here and clean up my stampin' mess. By the way, my TAXES are done! and in the mail, now to more important things like STAMPIN! Have a great day!
