I had to make a sympathy card this week for our Pony Club to send to a family from another club. Of course I had to include horses as they have been a major part of this lady's life. I used a retired set and was very happy with how it turned out. The verse is particularly apt: "The wind of heaven is that which blows through a horse's ear".
Vale Kim Hammond - she will be sorely missed from our zone. She was a generous lady with a big heart and always there to lend a hand when needed. Deepest sympathy to Andy and Molly.
When I do workshops and classes I always make up extra kits and as a result I have ended up with a huge box of kits. Recently some of my lovely customers, Kim, Helena, Nan, Raelee and Pam came over and the challenge was to make up some of the kits using their own designs.
I set up my stamp pad caddies and I was the runner, getting whatever stamp set they wanted to use.
It was a very productive day. Raelee was a powerhouse, making over 20 cards. She even made a card up using the scraps from everyone else's cards!
Here are some of the cards, aren't they great.
I still have heaps of kits left so we will definitely have to do it again sometime.
I hope you are finding time to do some creating of your own.
Apologies for the long absence from my blog. Sometimes you just need to step back and have a break.
Now I am back with lots of exciting news from Stampin' Up!®.
There is a new promotion this month, Paper Party.
There are a couple of ways to benefit from this promotion.
Firstly, customers will get a FREE packet of Designer Series Paper (excluding the speciality papers) for every three that you buy! There are two sheets of each design in a pack so get together with a friend and split the packs between you. That is an $18.95 saving!
Secondly, if you sign up as a demonstrator between 1 May and 31 May 2012 (see details of the new special price for the starter kit a bit further on) you will get a free packet of Designer Series Paper (excluding the speciality papers) each month till the end of the year. How good is that!
Now for the best news. Stampin' Up!® has changed the starter kit. You can now get a fully customisable kit for just $160 with a value of over $235 plus a business supplies pack valued at $80. What a bargain. You can pick anything you want out of the catalogue to be in your starter kit. So if you have a big wishlist this is a great deal for you. For just $169 you get to pick $235 worth of product and Stampin' Up! pays the postage! You no longer need an ABN to sign up as a demonstrator so it has never been easier.
You don't need to be a demonstrator who does workshops and classes. You can just sign up to buy your stamping products at a great discount and be involved with a great company.
I would love you to join me. I have a team of very lovely ladies and we get together every month to have some stamping fun and support each other. If you would like some more information, just give me a call or send me an email.
I will be back tomorrow with some creations to show you.
