Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all my readers! Today has been a great day spending time with my little family and working in the studio for my upcoming classes! Next weekend I have my Cool Treats class and these are the projects we will be making.  Its going to be a great time and I can't wait to share these projects with everyone that is coming.  Best part of all, they get to take the stamp set home with them!

Getting My Swap On!

Time is running out before Stampin' Up On Stage in San Diego begins on Saturday and in my true fashion, I'm just working on my swaps.  During many Stampin' Up events, Demonstrators from all over the world create cards and swap them with other Demonstrators.  We do this to get new ideas for classes and workshops to bring back to our customers. 

I love swapping but I always seem to let these go until the last minute....I need to work better on that.  Our next Stampin' Up On Stage event is in November.  Maybe I should start on those swaps now to be ahead of the game!

I am using the Birthday Fiesta stamp set below for my swaps.  With living in Tucson and the Southwest now, I thought bringing the Saguaro cactus from the outside into my cards would be a perfect representation.  I love how the paper that coordinates with the set is bold and beautiful, just like the outdoor colors of Arizona!

Even better Tucson friends! I'm hosting a class using this stamp set at Saguaro Market here in town on May 3rd! Each attendee will get their very own Birthday Fiesta stamp set to take home so they can use the Saguaro stamp themselves!  RSVPS deadline is 27 April, price includes stamp set, all supplies, and space is very limited.  RSVP here!

Beautiful You Water Color

Happy Sunday Stampers! It was a chilly and rainy day today here in Tucson and the perfect day to create in the craft room.  I am in love with Stampin' Up's new watercolor pencils and needed to create two birthday cards for some lovely ladies in my life.  I love how vibrant the hues are with these pencils and that they are finally true to Stampin' Up colors, meaning they match our inks and papers and coordinate with all our products!

The pencils glide smoothly over all types of paper and are wonderful to use with Stampin' Up's blender pens or aqua painters.  Depending on the intensity and saturation levels you are wanting to work, that will determine your use of a blender pen or aqua painter.  For my projects today, I worked with aqua painters and watercolor paper.

Aqua Painter (blue) and Blender Pen (black)
Here is a great video created by Stampin' Up showing the watercolor pencils and showing them in action! 

As always, you can purchase these watercolor pencils, blender pens, aqua painters, and other great Stampin' Up items 24/7 from my online shop.  Click the link here to shop now!  Use this months hostess code of KQV23KZ7 to receive a surprise item from me!

Success! New Catalog Open House!

Success! My first catalog open house was held yesterday since moving back to the States almost six months ago and it was great! While living overseas I was unable to sell Stampin' Up, so my business was on hold the last four years.  I was eager to get back into the business I love and share my creativity with others and an open house for the new Occasions catalog was just the event we needed!

Don't those projects look GREAT?!

Seven ladies attended yesterday and we crafted, chatted, and munched on snacks.  As a door prize, I gave out a My Paper Pumpkin kit as well as a free entry to an upcoming class.  Camila, our winner, was very excited to have won! We used the Beautiful You stamp set from the Occasions catalog and I demonstrated a card using the Tasty Trucks stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!  If you spend $50, you can receive the Tasty Trucks stamp set for FREE!

Beautiful You Card 

Were you not able to make the event yesterday but still want to join in on the fun?  The event will close for orders on Tuesday and there's still time to place an order from the great products in the new catalog.  Use the code YZHTG2B6 to get free shipping!  Check out the great items from the catalog here!

I hope to see you at one of my next events! The Valentine's Day class will be held on Sunday, February 5th at 2pm or Monday, February 6th at 7pm.  Choose a date that works for your schedule as each event will be making the same projects.  Price to attend is $10 and includes all supplies to make three cards.  RSVP with prepayment is required to hold your spot and to ensure supplies are prepared.  RSVP deadline is February 1st!
