Presto Paper

At the Spring Fling, Kristian demonstrated Presto Patterns Designer Paper in the Summer Mini Catalog (11.95 for 12 sheets). She did GREAT! Check out these samples. The paper is white with white embossed images on it. So, when you apply ink, the white embossed images appear. It's like magic! You can apply in any way you want: sponge, brayer, sponge dauber, ink pad directly to paper, marker (Kristian told us about that one), etc.

Spring Fling Projects

These are the projects everyone made this past Sat at the Spring Fling. They made 4 of the party favors (found in the Summer Mini Catalog), and the scrapbook is 20 pages!

Card Club Projects-May

These are the projects we made at card club this month.
I have a new card club starting - I only need 5 more members!!

Club details:
Hostess Clubs Available:

1.Card Club – you want lots of stuff, and you want to learn new stamping techniques:
Once a month for the next 10 months you commit to purchasing at least $15.00 (before tax & shipping) worth of Stampin’ Up! products. There will be a workshop held each month at my house that all of the members can attend, however, you never have to attend a workshop if you don’t want to. At each workshop, there will be planned projects to complete (must be present to receive projects OR a club member can stamp yours for you).
You receive the catalog FREE! Orders must be placed at the time of the monthly workshop. (If you can’t attend, just contact me with your order and arrange to make payment.)
When it is your month to receive the hostess benefits, you may invite guests to boost your workshop sales. Guests pay $5 for the projects, or it’s free for them with any order of $15 or more (guest club member). You may also collect outside orders to boost your sales. When you are hostess, you can make one request for the month (within reason – card type and/or techniques – at my discretion).
The club meets on the third Saturday of each month at 6:30 AND the following Monday at 9 AM and 7 PM. You only need to come to ONE date each month, and you DO NOT have to come to the same day every month. The projects are the same for all 3 times. A drawing will be held before the first workshop to decide who is the first hostess, second hostess, and so on. You will be notified as soon as the drawing has been held of the month you will be the “hostess” – the month you receive hostess benefits based on the orders that month. There is more than one club meeting at these same times, so the guests at the club may or may not be in "your club".

2.Scrapper’s Club – NOT just for scrapbookers!
Once a month for the next 10 months you commit to purchasing at least $15 (before tax & shipping) worth of Stampin’ Up! products. Each month, we meet at my house on the 3rd Friday of each month at 9 am OR 7 pm, and I will provide the supplies and directions for 3 pages (2 page layout plus one page that will be completed the following month). By the end of the club, you will have a completed 30 page album!! Each month, a different member will receive the hostess benefits for the orders placed that month. Orders must be placed at the time of the monthly workshop. (If you can’t attend, just contact me with your order and arrange to make payment.) You can collect outside orders to boost your sales and invite extra guests (space permitting). Guest pay $5 if the decide not to place a “guest” club member order of the club minimum. You must bring adhesive to the club. You also receive the catalog FREE!
If you are interested in joining a club, just let me know OR sign below. Thanks!

Spring Fling

Here are some photos from our awesome Spring Fling on Saturday. We had over 50 people in attendance! Three guests became Stamp Therapists (aka Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in my group)! Welcome Ron - yes, RON a male!! : ) And also welcome Susie and Sandy.

Here is Karrie checking some people in, Beth demonstrating Smooch Spritz and the AWESOME Color Catcher, Landa's Big Shot Quilting display, Alejandra's display board, and our raffle table that Karrie Decorated.

Thanks to everyone for their help! Scott set up tables, Isabelle set up the microphone (aka Karaoke Machine), Karrie helped with everything!!, Landa helped set up/break down, MaryAnn and Tracy helped with break down and got me ice, my four guest speakers helped with demoing new products and setup/breakdown: Beth, Alejandra, Dorothy, & Kristian, Kelly provided a projector, April helped cut paper (before of course), and Michelle made us swap bags. I am sure other people helped with things I didn't even see - that's why it ran so smooth!!
