Wishing You Well Beyond the Holidays

Versatility is one of the great features of Stampin' Up! products. I love that with a bit of creativity and thinking "outside the box", we can discover (or watch others discover) new ways to use products beyond what they were originally intended for. The 2018 Holiday Catalog contains several products that can be used during the holiday season and well beyond into the new year. The Wishing You Well stamp set is one of those products. Here I made several cards to be used as thank you notes. You choose the colors based on the occasion or need for the card. This card is quick and easy to make. Be sure to download the PDF Project Sheet I included below.

4) My 10th Anniversary Gifts 
  10th-anniversary
Saturday, August 18, 2018, was my 10th Anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Joining Stampin' Up! 10 years ago was one of the best decisions of my life. I joined simply to purchase great products at a discount. I anticipated I'd do this for a while, get a good collection of stamps and supplies, drop, and then craft on my own. I had absolutely no intention of making a "business" of my hobby. I was stamping and creating and not growing tired of it in the least. I just wanted to keep doing more of this wonderful stamping hobby of mine. I was my Emily, 11 year olds at the time, who walked into my craft room one day to see what I was doing, and said, "If you're going to keep making stuff, Mom, you should sell it." And that, is how it began. It wasn't fast or dramatic. It was simply baby steps of me stamping and sharing and inviting others to stamp and create with me. Now, all these years later, I have countless friends, tremendous gratitude for the many opportunities SU! has afforded me, and lots of wonderful memories of SU! events and incentive trips and the people who shared these events with me. My heart is full of joy, but there is room for many more years of SU! love. I'm excited to see what the next 10 years bring me as I continue to love what I do and share what I love and make a difference in the lives of others by doing so.
Gifts of aluminum and tin are the traditional gifts of 10 year anniversaries. To celebrate my 10th anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I have a gift for everyone who places an online order on my website using Host Code GSZ9YJC7 by August 31st.
  • Place any size order to receive 10 Whisper White card bases and 10 envelopes.
  • Place an order of $50 or more to receive 10 Whisper White card bases and 10 envelopes AND a sampling of our 5 foil sheets: Champagne, Copper, Gold, Silver, and the brand new Galvanized Foil (6"x12" piece of each color). You'll also receive a $5 coupon code to use in September from SU! because it's Bonus Days throughout all of August.
Foil sheets always add an extra special touch to your cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts. I especially love using them with my holiday paper crafting. You'll be able to order the new Galvanized Foil Sheets and Galvanized Buttons from the 2018 Holiday Catalog beginning September 5th. Wait 'til you see the Festive Farmhouse Suite that they are included in. Cute. Cute. Cute. Amazing Designer Series Paper in the suite too.
 
Today, I'm preparing Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogs to mail. If you would like one, please email me catalog request including your mailing address to mknabe2008@gmail.com.

Wishing You Well Card with PDF Tutorial

I'm so excited to see some of my team members tonight. Do to my move from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Columbus, Ohio, at the end of June, I did not have a monthly Merry Stampers team meeting, and I REALLY missed it and my wonderful group. I'm so blessed to be able to work and play with such a supportive group of demonstrators. Several have offered to host monthly meetings in their homes, if I would make the 2 hour trip back. Yes, yes, and yes! Tonight, we added in a summer potluck so it'll be extra fun. Of course, we will do our best to make it a Facebook Live on our team page for those who can't attend or live to far away can still participate. I love that social media allows us to connect with the entire team in this way.

This month's swap theme is create using one of your favorites from the current Annual Catalog or upcoming Holiday Catalog (demos can pre-order from HC this month). I chose to use the Wishing Well stamp set from the 2018 Holiday Catalog which will be available to order beginning September 5th. I used the new Granny Apple Green color along with Flirty Flamingo, a former InColor which is now one of our main core colors, I love how this card turned out. It's a simple card layout but is very impactful with the bright colors. An easy card to CASE or duplicate. Give it a try in these colors or some of YOUR favorite Stampin' Up! colors.

Day 7 - Last Day of Cruise, Dessert Party, & Dashing Deer Sneak Peek

On Day 7 the Explorer of the Seas docked in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Once again, the weather was perfect with its sunshine, blue skies, and warm temperatures. We enjoyed a bus tour of the city with a very informative and witty driver and tour guide. The city of Victoria is beautiful with its colorful flowers, landscape, historical buildings, and views. The architecture and art found in the city keep you interested everywhere you go, and the people very welcoming and friendly. It is also a quite pricey place to live and low on homes and apartments as many people desire to live there.
