Jersey Shore Notes

Jersey_shore_notes_3 Good morning!

Isn’t the Jersey Shore notepad cute?  When I designed it I wanted to show it to everyone as fast as I could….but that was …back when I was going to apply for the Artisan Award.

I’ll be honest, I’ve never applied.  Each year I think this time I’ll try.  But to keep my stuff hidden and not share it…I just can’t do it!! The only reason I didn’t show this sooner is because it was stashed away and I forgot.  I found it yesterday because I bought another file cabinet :O (Yes, it matches the one I showed you a few months ago, they finally got them in stock.)

Couple reminders for you….Today is the last day to order from the Occasions Mini Catalog and tomorrow you can start ordering the Decor Elements (if you need a brochure, let me know).  Also remember, anyone that places an $100 Stampin’ Up! order with me in July gets a Free Fall & Winter Idea book & Catalog. ($100 net total, before tax & shipping.) Don’t forget, if you’re a club member your Idea Book & Catalog is Free.

Have a great day….thanks for stopping by!

p.s. thanks for all the Congrats yesterday….I really appreciate it!

Stamps:  Jumbo Outline Alphabet

Ink:  Black Stazon, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie & Wild Wasabi

Cardstock:  Jersey Shore Designer Paper, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, White

Hawaii bound :)

It’s official….I earned the trip to Hawaii!!  I’m so thankful!!!!!    I’m not the best at wording things and I’ll try to get this right. I had help in so many different ways……some of you placed orders, some answered questions, some told me to check my report and see where I’m at, some listened to me toss around ideas and help me decide what to do, some of you called me and said what can I do…even my downline girls helped!  There just isn’t words to express how much it means to me that you all wanted to help.  So, I’ll just say……   THANK YOU!!!

I’ll be honest…I can’t take a minute of credit on these cards. I saw one like this years ago…then a few months back on Patty’s blog, then earlier this month at our group meeting and again the other day when Julie came over to stamp.  I’m posting them to show my wonderful customers the potential of this set (and sometimes it’s fun to case a super cute card). 

June 30th Update…I filmed a video on how to make these cards, click here to head over to my Stampin’ Academy.

Pick a Petal Thank you

Pick_a_petal_thank_you Good morning!!

I finally found a few hours to stamp yesterday and this is what I made.  Aren’t they super cute? I know…I say that all the time…but really….. these cards are so stinkin cute that I had to make 4 of them….and now I have to make more!   Couldn’t you see "Happy Birthday" with it instead of "thank you"? 

I used the Pick a Petal stamp set and Enjoy Every Moment (thanks Lise for letting me continue to borrow the thank you…I just can’t live without it :))))

The Striped Grosgrain Ribbon goes perfectly with these cards and tonight is the deadline for my Ribbon Shares.  Click here for details!

Have a Fantastic Friday and see ya tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

p.s. I’ve had several emails asking me if it’s official for my trip to Hawaii.  Not yet, but it should be anytime now and I promise the moment it’s official…I will post it…as I’m jumping up & down.

p.s.s. Julie I had a fantastic time yesterday…can’t wait to giggle more at Convention.   And Gigi…I was thinking of you as I was making the Wasabi card…don’t you love it?

Saturday, June 28th Update….I filmed a tutorial for this card and you can head on over to my Stampin’ Academy to watch it.  And this card will be one of my Convention swaps :))))  I’m so excited…one month to go!

Decor & More!

Sallys_june_swap_2 Good morning!

Isn’t this card so pretty?  Sally gave this to me Monday at club and I love it!!  I want that set really bad and I think I’m going to break down and get it very soon….especially since I love birds!  It’s the "Always" stamp set and it’s on page 57 of the Stampin’ Up! Spring & Summer Collection (aka Idea Book & Catalog).


My next card is from Julie (also club member) and her card is equally as cute…don’t you love how she used the little pearls?  Too cute!!

And last but not least…………I couldn’t hold off any longer. I just had to get those Decor Elements on my walls…now I want everyone to come over and see it. BEAUTIFUL!!! I’m so lucky that Chocolate goes with my home!!  On July 1st…I’ll be ordering more …what you see on the right side of the door I’m going to do the same on the left side….and I have plans for several more pieces.  FYI, it’s as easy as pie to use!!   Here’s a couple photos of the one I added today….I’ll show you more soon!

  I’ll see ya tomorrow…..Have a great day!

p.s. I received my shipment of Decor Elements yesterday …..hopefully I can show you one of my walls very soon ๐Ÿ™‚
