Stampin' Bingo

Hello everyone! Today I can finally share some of our Bingo pictures from last weekend. I had to wait until last night's Online Bingo event was over because I didn't want to spoil anything! 

Everyone received a swag bag with Metallic Epoxy Stickers, a bolt of twine, a package of Cello Bags, a package of Dimensionals and a package of Mini Paper Clips. In their bag, they also had four make and take packets. They each received two bingo cards and a door prize coupon. 

For my local event, we are able to play eight games. I had all the prizes set out, plus a few extras in case of some ties- which we did have! 

Our last game is always a blackout bingo and the prize is BIG! This was this year's grand prize. 

Lots of fun door prizes as well! 

We played a few games, made a few projects, played a few more games, made a few projects... We also had lots of yummy snacks to eat! 

So of eight games, we had two different people win twice! Norma got two prizes that night! 

Lisa seems to win every single time I have Bingo! She's a lucky girl! 

And speaking of LUCKY! This lady won twice and then won the Blackout Grand Prize! And, in a weird twist, she has actually won the Grand Prize at the last THREE Bingo events! Isn't that CRAZY! She claims she never wins anything except when she comes to my events. I think she needs to play the lottery!! 

I will show you the projects that we made over the next few days. Here is the first one we made. It features all new products from the upcoming Annual catalog! 
Paper: Tanquil Tide and Dapper Denim Cardstock, Eastern Palace DSP, Happy Birthday Thinlit and Tranquil Tide Woven Ribbon.

Pieces & Patterns and Pick a Pattern DSP (Sneak Peek)

Hello everyone! Today I have a quick and fun project to share with you. I created these little goodies last week for my BINGO event. As you know, I do a local event and an online event and the online event is tonight! So, I think it's safe to show you these little surprises that were in the kits! 

I used the Pick a Pattern DSP and the Pieces and Patterns stamp set. I created simple little tags to stick on to little cookie packages. Easy right? I also used the Layering Oval Frameits and the banner framelit that comes with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit Collection. And of course, I can't do anything with out a bow, so it has a Basic Black Baker's Twine bow. 

And here they are all piled in to a cute crate. Just a fun little treat- nothing over the top, but just a little something to say "thanks." Hope they looked them! I will have lots of pictures tomorrow of my local Bingo event. It was a BLAST! 

These products can be found in the 2017 Annual Catalog. It goes live next Thursday afternoon!! Can't wait! Do you need a copy of the catalog? Email me to request one!

Colorful Seasons (Sneak Peek)

Good morning! Today, I want to share a card I recently made for a downline whose husband was severely injured a fire. He is a fire fighter who was battling a 4 alarm fighter and was trapped inside the building. Thankfully, he was rescued, but he has a pretty long road ahead of him with many injuries. His wife is a member of my downline. My wonderful team came together to collect funds to purchase some meals for them in days to come. We needed a special card to put that in, so I pulled out my new Colorful Season stamp set and got to work. 

I used Calypso Coral and Soft Suede to stamp the flowers and branches. The DSP is also a Sneak Peek from the new catalog. It's called Delightful Daisy. 

It's hard to see in the first picture, but I did add some tiny pears to the center of the flowers. This set is available to everyone on June 1st. It's a wonderfully versatile set and also has coordinating framelits. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great afternoon!

Dare to Dream (Sneak Peek)

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! We had a dreary, rainy weekend here in South Texas, but it was actually nice. We played board games and watched movies with the kids. Being forced to slow down and just be together inside is so nice!

A hostess set is only available to anyone who hosts a workshop that reaches $150. Also, if you spend more than $150 in one purchase, you can choose Hostess Sets as well. This one costs $10 in Stampin' Rewards.

Stampin' Up has also announced a great Hostess Special for June!

If you don't want to host a workshop, you can also collect orders form your friends and submit them together to earn Hostess rewards! Let me know if you'd like to know more! 

The other new Sneak Peek project on this card is the DSP. It's a 6" X 6" DSP pack called Color Theory The ink I used are Melon Mambo, Dapper Denim, Pool Party and Marina Mist. I layered the hot air balloons on a Stitched Circle and added clouds from the Up and Away Thinlit Collection.

2017-2018 Annual Catalog  Product Share

What is a Product Share? It's a great way to get a little bit of all the new ribbon or paper. I cut the bolts of ribbon in 1 yard lengths and you get 1 yard of each color. For the paper, I divide the packs by four people, so each person gets a half sheet of each pattern. It's a great way to figure out which ones you like the most and want to invest in. 

I can't show you all the  pictures yet, because I don't have the product yet! I do have the In Color Ribbon, so the picture above can kind of help you wrap your head around what a share is!  One yard of each new ribbon! 

Ribbon Share
 $49 plus shipping*
This share includes 49 new ribbons! (All but the Copper Trim which will be on Back Order until the end of July, so I decided to leave it off.  You will receive 1 yard of each, totaling in 49 yards. The turn around time for the ribbon share will be a little bit longer than normal because it will take me a while to get them all cut! Shipping on ribbon shares is $7 (priority flat rate envelope) or free if you also purchase the paper share. 

Please look at pages 198-199 in your Annual Catalog to see the ribbons. It will include the Gingham, Double- Stitched, Ombre, Classic Weave, Mini Sequin, Stitched Satin, Stitched- Edge, Finely Woven, Shimmer, Sheer, Mini Chevron, Crinkled, Metallic-Edge and Striped Grosgrain Ribbons. (Wow!!)

Designer Series Paper Share
$54 plus shipping
This share will give you a sheet of every new pattern in the DSP packs and stacks. Each pack of paper will be divided by 4 people. You will get 6” X 12” pieces from all the 12” packs except for the the specialty pieces which will be 3 X 12” because there is only one in each pack. The 6” paper packs will come as 6” X 6” pieces. 

Please refer to pages 187-189 in your Annual Catalog. This share will include the Petal Garden, Color Theory, Wood Textures, Fresh Florals, Whole Lotta Lovely, Naturally Eclectic, Pick a Pattern, Coffee break, Be Merry, Birthday Memories, Delightful Daisy, Eastern Palace, Bundle of Love, and Foil Frenzy DSP packs.

Shipping is $13 (Priority Flat Rate Medium Box.) Ribbon shares can ship with the paper at no additional charge. 

Shipping Cost 

Paper Shares will need to be shipped in Flat Rate Boxes to protect them and assure they arrive safely. That cost is $13.45. Add in the ribbon shares to this box for no additional shipping charge! 
1 Ribbon Share- $7 shipping
2 Ribbon Share- $13.60 shipping
Paper Share- $13.60 (ribbon can ship for free along with the paper.)

Please Remember:
It takes several weeks to get your share. I don't order the product until a group is full (paper is 4 people and ribbon is 10.) Then, it takes a week to arrive to me from SU. It will take me up to two weeks for me to cut, sort, pack and ship. Please be patient. I will do them as quickly as I can! I will also email you with updated timelines. :-)

Simple Thank You Gifts- Thankful Thoughts

Hello everyone! This morning I am sharing some very simple gifts I gave out recently. They are super simple, but a great example of how one stamp can pack a big punch! 

First, the bags. They were found on the clearance isle at Target once upon a time and have been in a drawer for years. You can find similar things on Etsy or Amazon. I absolutely love the combo of Real Red and Tempting Turquoise and that's the direction I took with these. 

These bag were the perfect size to fit pack of twine. How cute, right? This sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts and I can't get enough of it. The font looks like the super popular hand lettering that everyone is doing. I stamped ion a Stitched Whisper White Circle and layered it over a Tempting Turquoise Scallop Circle. I finished it off with a Sending Love Grosgrain Ribbon bow. Anybody could do this, right? 

And here they are all lined up in a cute red basket. It's all about the presentation, right!?!? 

Thanks for stopping by today!

 Don't forget that both the Mixed Drinks 
and One Wild Ride Class Deadline is tomorrow!
