Weekly Deals – including a hidden gem?

Here are this week’s deals! OK, seriously? Am I the only who didn’t realize we had a hearts border punch now? Guess what’s on my list this week LOL. I also love the For the Birds set, and Stampin’ Up!’s Blendabilities markers make colouring even more fun!! Click on the image to be taken to the YamStamps online store to see all these deals. If you need any help placing your order or have questions, please feel free to contact me.

ALSO – my projects newsletter goes out TODAY at 1pm. I know it’s not October, and I’m not rushing the seasons or anything…but I scheduled it for today as my Twelve Weeks of Christmas mailings starts TOMORROW.

Richmond Hill Scrapfest

Spent a fun couple of days at the Richmond Hill Scrapfest this weekend – thank you to everyone who took the time to stop by our Stampin’ Up! booth to say hi, do a bit of shopping, and participate in our make and take! My downline, Karen and I got to meet a lot of people during that time – it was busy, and I was so thankful that there was a padded floor at this site (so much easier to stand on than plain concrete), though I was still tired out by the end!

Here’s a few shots from the event:

















I was pleased with how our booth turned out, because it always feels like you just might be forgetting something…and no, I did not wear flip flops during the Saturday Vendor Market – this was during Friday set up. We did do an exclusive make and take with the croppers on the Friday evening, and had a different one for the Saturday. I hope to get the chance to participate during another crop at some point!

Just a note – if you attended Scrapfest and indicated interest in receiving mailings from me, you should have received a message today – you need to CONFIRM your registration to complete the process (click the link in the email), and you will definitely want to do that…because the Twelve Weeks of Christmas starts THIS WEDNESDAY!! My monthly newsletter will be coming out tomorrow in advance of the Twelve Weeks Mailings – each week, subscribers receive a different holiday project, complete with photo & instructions – and these will NOT be seen anywhere else. You don’t want to miss out!

If you haven’t signed up for my list yet – if you do so before Wednesday at 1pm, you’ll receive all 12 weeks of the Christmas mailings, and if you sign up  before Tuesday at 1pm, you’ll ALSO get my monthly newsletter with projects and information.

Additional Club Time – NEW!

smokey-silver-cardHmmm not sure if I ever shared this photo or not?! This is another one of the projects I created using Flower Patch and Flower Fair Framelits (available as a bundle). I know, you’re thinking “ummmm where are the die cuts??” I used the framelits to die cut post it notes (being sure to have some of the sticky portion on the die cut) to use as masks for the stamping – this way you get the effect that some of the flowers are behind each other… a fantastically easy thing to do that gives such a great effect! Smoky Slate and Encore Silver Metallic ink pair together to give a beautiful monochromatic look. I love this pairing!

This is a card that stamp club members made a few months back as well. I have BIG NEWS if you’ve been wanting to join in Stampers Club and are able to get to Burlington ON! I’ve decided to open an afternoon session for Club members! Club sessions remain on the 3rd Monday of the month, and now members have the option of attending from either 12:30 – 2:30 OR 7-9 pm. This is great if you’re not working on Mondays, have a flexible schedule, or needed a daytime slot because of childcare! New members can start their 6 month membership at any club meeting (well, you have to give me notice and register, but you know what I mean…) Contact me if you’d like more information or want to reserve your spot.
