The Dog Days of Summer Specials!!!

Hello My Friends!

I need to get right to all the exciting things happening this month first, so hold on for the wild ride!

Bonus Days are here!  What are Bonus Days?  Well, for every $50.00 you spend, you will get an email with a "bonus code" that entitles you to $5.00 to use in September!  Yes, that is right!  Spend $50.00 and get $5.00 to spend.  Pretty cool huh?  I just did a Huge Pre-Order from the Holiday Catalog and I earned $30.00!  Woo Hoo!  What is nice is that for you, my customers, you can redeem your $5.00 coupons on the Holiday Catalog extravaganza!  The Holiday Catalog becomes Live on September 1!


Also, Stampin' Up! has a special Limited Time Offer!  The bundle (Stamp and Framelits) called "Color Your Season" is only available the month of August.  Here is my sample I made from the set...  

  Pictures are a tad blurry, but I think you get the jist.  I have only had time to do this one sample, but I loved the stamp and using the Stampin' blends to color ithe flowers in.  I got my idea from Artisan Designer Elizabeth Price.  Take advantage of this limited offer!  There are many, many good ideas on Pinterest and blogs to see how they are used. 

Next (I told you it was an awesome month for offers!)...

If you have thought about our fabulous monthly Paper Pumpkin kits, now is the time to start the program!  You have to act quick though - your Paper Pumpkin Subscription needs to be in by August 10th!  Yikes!!!

Well, I think that is about all for the new happenings...I will blog again in a day or so to show off my Sunday Craftin' Gals group and what we did on the 29th gathering.  We had so much fun, and everyone enjoyed the Christmas in July theme we had!

One last thing...if you place an order under $150.00 through my site, please remember to use the August Hostess Code of YXPFT23P!  Oh and THANK YOU!
August 2018 Hostess Code

Summer! WooHoo!

Greetings my Peeps!

Ahhh, the days of summer!  Delightful, and here in San Diego, it hasn't been too bad!  The June Gloom is gone by 9am and the days are perfect low 70's in temperature.  This is what San Diego is all about!

I held my Crafting Gals Sunday group on the 10th, and used this gathering as my mini catalog launch!  Here is my small display table, as most of my June order had just arrived on Friday!  Eeek!  I displayed the cards I had time to make from my May Pre-order, the stamps and DSP and punch, didn't show up in the picture...oh well...

June 10th catalog launch

I want to thank all of the lovely ladies that I CASE'D for my show - with all that was going on here at home, my creative side of the brain was hard pressed and not working well...Thank you to Tatiana Creative, Gloria Plunkett, Dani Dziama, Karen Barber, Denita Wright, Laura Allen, and Randi Collins.  Your creativity inspires me every day! I said mini catalog launch, because I want to re-introduce the catalog in July when more can come and I will be able to have a larger display!!! 

Since we weren't going to meet again until July, we decided to make patriotic small tags.  These were perfect to hang on a Patriotic tree (for those of us who have a tree up all year...hint, Cathy!).  But also, if you have a birthday in July - it is a cute tag for a present! 

I took the idea from my friend Ginny Nemchak who does beautiful vintage, layered projects.  I printed out some patriotic pictures from Ginny, sized them for the small or mini tags and the gals had various patriotic prints for backgrounds.  Embellishments were glittery pipe cleaners (I think they call them something different now), bows, buttons, flowers - anything they wanted to use to dress up their tags.  Here are some pictures:

 Irene, Cathy and Nee with their patriotic tags

 Renee, Work in Progress and the Crafting Gals

As you can see, we like to eat, drink (wine!), and craft.  What fun we had - looking forward to July's meeting - Christmas in July????  We will see!

For those of you who have anxiously been awaiting the NEW colors of Stampin' Blends, well, we have to wait a little longer.  Per the update today, they are still "on their way".  They seem to be having an extra long vacation from us using them!  Ha!  I will let you all know when they will be in so we can get all of the new colors!  I have really had a wonderful time learning about the Blends and using them.

Remember, if you shop with me and it is under $150.00, use Junes code:
June 2018 Hostess Code
If your order is $150.00 or more, don't use the code, because you will earn Reward Points for what you spend!  What a deal!!!  As always, if you would like to join my team, click on Join Me and we will get you signed up to receive $125.00 worth of goodies for $99.00, sneak previews of upcoming NEW things, previews of new catalogs, pre-order entitlements, and you can sign up for the On Stage conventions!!!  It is definitely a win-win for anyone!  I would love to be your demonstrator, so just let me know!

Well, that is all for today...please be kind to one another and make time for Creating With Paper!  Take Care All!
