Hello Stampin' Friends! Well, you haven't heard from me in a while, have you? So sorry about that; lots of things going on, and I was very busy getting ready for my Sneak Peek Open House.

If you were here – thank you SO much for making my Open House such a success!  Everyone had lots of fun; enjoying the Make'n'Takes, the displays of completed projects with the new products, treats to eat, prize draws, and of course, seeing some of the new products in person!

Well, they say 'a picture is worth a thousand words', so here are some pictures from Tuesday night!

 Here is my table displaying the completed cards I made with some of the new stamps, inks, papers and embellishments.  Everyone was able to pick up their NEW CATALOGUE! along with a special bookmark, and a 'New Catalogue Survival Kit' 🙂  Also on the table were the 3 Paper Pumpkins, the 'This and That' complete bundle, the new Simply Pressed Clay & Molds, and many more new goodies!

 Isn't this fun?!  This is the little 'New Catalogue Survival Kit' that I put together for each of the ladies 🙂  I wish I could take credit for making it up myself, but I found it on another demonstrator's site.

 Here are the bookmarks; each guest received one of these, too!  On the front it shows all of the new In Colours for 2013-15, and the back has each of the 'Colour Refresh' colours.  The front colours were punched out of that colour's card stock, and the back were stamped using the appropriate matching colour ink (all punched with the new Mosaic Punch #131267).

 

The above 2 pictures show some of the new goodies that were on display – the most fun part is the 'touching & feeling'! 🙂

  Of course, you can't have an Open House without Door Prizes!!  Here's the basket full of goodies that 8 lucky winners got to choose from!

Okay – I know, you're dying to know what everyone did for the Make 'n' Take – they got to use ALL NEW PRODUCTS (except for adhesives – haha).   You can see that I just love the Mosaic punch, and it's coordinating Embossing Folder and Mosaic Madness stamp set – and this is just 2 of the stamps in that fabulous set.  Stampin' Up! makes it so easy to make your cards professional looking, with so many coordinating products to choose from.

Don't you just love the gorgeous new 'Crisp Cantaloupe' card stock?  Of course, it has a matching ink, and although it doesn't show very well in this picture, trust me – the Baked Brown Sugar looks as good as it's name! 🙂   Wondering what that emellishment is, in the middle of that mosaic?  Hmmmm….  can you say 'Simply Pressed Clay'?  You are going to LOVE this stuff!  It's super easy to use with the Buttons & Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, but there's lots of other uses for it, too.  You'll have to stay tuned!  The beautiful designer series paper on this card is from the new 'Soho Subway' series.

Okay – so that was a lot of sharing for one night! 🙂  Yes, I'm going to make you come back tomorrow, when I'll share close-up pictures of the cards made with some of the new stamps, inks & papers.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project; whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :) If you're in Canada, you can Join My Team as a SU! demonstrator. If you're in the Great Vancouver area, you're welcome to join my classes - we always have fun!

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
