Because of Hurricane Irene, Stamp Camp Rescheduled and Brunch With Frances!!!

Last weekend Christy one of my team members and I had scheduled a New Catalog Stamp Camp and guess what Irene decided we shouldn't have it soooooooooooo we rescheduled for this Sat 9/3/11 at 10a.m. so if you missed the date you still have time to sign up. Email me by 9/1/11 to reserve your spot. You will be making 8 projects for $25 including cards and 3-d projects.


Tonight I am perusing the net to look for some new recipes to serve at my Brunch with Frances on (Sat)Sept 17th at 11:00am. Doesn't this CUSTARD BATTERED FRENCH TOAST WITH GLAZED STRAWBERRIES AND NUTS look yummy!!! The recipe is on the Pottery Barn site and I thought uummm I bet my stamping friends would love this. So I printed out the recipe to go along with some other yummy goodies to serve at my Brunch with Frances. Don't forget to reserve your spot by 9/10/11.

Your ticket to the brunch is a $150 order that you can place for yourself or you can gather orders from family and friends.

What's in it for you!?!
1. You will have a delicious brunch with other stampers
2. You don't have to clean your house
3. You don't have to ask anyone over unless you have a friend that has a $150 order too and you want to have her join us (just let me know)
4. You get a $25.00 shopping spree from the new catalog for hostess benefits!
5. You will do a make and take and I will have projects to view from the Holiday Mini catalog. Bring your camera!
6. A great girls morning out.
7. Don't forget door prizes!

Charlotte Stampin UP Regionals!!!

Saturday was such a fun day meeting with other demonstrators in the area and surrounding states for a Stampin UP Regionals meeting. A day filled with great ideas, make and takes and watching demonstrations from the home office including Shelli Gardner and area demonstrators showing us tricks and tips too. Below is Shelli Gardner Co-founder and CEO of Stampin UP. You could not meet a nicer person! I also got to meet one of my downline (this is someone that has signed up either under me or someone on my team). Teresa Plunkett is in my 3rd level and is so fun and very creative. It was great to finally meet her after a couple of years of being on our team. Looks like we dressed to coordinate but we didn't! :) I saw Margaret Grunsley who was a guest of another demo friend of mine. Great to see you Margaret! Karel was my guest and we both had a great time. I am looking forward to sharing these new ideas in upcoming events I will have on my schedule starting in September! Stay tuned, and thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card - Snow Much Fun ~ Reminder for Stampin Bunco and Stamp Camp

Last week I met with my new Christmas Card Stamp Club and we had a great time deciding what stamp sets to use and what colors to use for our Christmas cards this year. I have been playing around with this really cute NEW stamp set "Snow Much Fun". I haven't decided to use the vintage type colors or brighter colors. The colors I used are Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by. Remember I have Stampin Bunco next Tues 8/23 at 7pm. We still have openings and it will be a lot of fun. I am designing the fall card you will make this week.

If you can't make that you may want to come to my NEW CATALOG STAMP CAMP on Saturday 8/27/11. The Stamp Camp fee is $25.00 and you will be making 8 projects. You can choose from 2 different times 10-1 or 2-5. Give me a call or email to reserve your spot. 334-8800 or

Sneek Peek and Christmas Card Club (you will be finished by November!)

I thought this post needed a little color, so when I got my new stash of goodies from the Stampin UP Holiday mini catalog order yesterday, I thought I would make a little something.

I can't show you the product till Sept 1st but I can show you this is a little tag I made using "Snow Much Fun" stamp set that is new in the newest large catalog on page 35. I just love that little bird making a snowball. The new part of this little 3x3 card is that I used the new Peekaboo Frames big shot die. When you see it you are going to have to have it to go along with the samp set "25 & Counting".

If you come to my Christmas Card Club on Friday night you can look at my new toys and the new Holiday Mini Catalog. I only have one right now but some are on order for you. I used the snowfake on front is from Northern Frost Snowflakes 120901 Sizzlits die strip page 225; Baker's Twine 123125 page 194; (NEW) Mica Flakes on the snowball. Don't you love the way the frame lifts up and you can peek at what is inside?

Ok, back to Christmas card club... Starts this Friday and I still have room for a couple of more people. Contact me if you want to get your cards done early this year instead of the week before Christmas. (sound familiar)

Aug 12th: (Initial meeting): We will plan and design our card by looking at the catalogs and brainstorming together and deciding what colors, stamp sets, embellishments etc. you want to use. Whether you like snowmen, serious, religious, contemporary or whimsical, there is a stamp set for you. The first night you will place your order for your supplies. Also at this meeting we will agree on what night to continue to meet each month.

Sept: (2nd meeting): We will cut all our supplies so bring your paper cutter and scissors and big shot if you are using any dies for your project.

Oct: (3rd meeting): We will stamp and assemble our cards

Nov: (4th meeting): We will address our envelopes and we are done! I will be making mine too so I am excited about doing it with friends and in advance so on Dec 15th I am not scurrying around trying to get them made, addressed and out before Dec 25th I know some of you can identify with that. :)

Email me to get on the Christmas Card Club List today!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells............ ok I got a little carried away!

New Garden Stake and Ribbon Share

Last week I showed you a garden stake that I will be offering as one of my stamp camp projects on Aug 27th and today I just had to make one for my own garden. This is smaller for my basil plants. I love the way it turned out. Email me to register for your spot at our stamp camp. I don't know about you but when I am at a Stampin event and all our supplies look alike I like to tie a cute piece of ribbon on my scissors so I know they belong to me. On these scissors I used the Pool Party Ruffled ribbon 122975 and the Old Olive Scallop Dots Ribbon 124139 on the other pair. Don't you love these designs!!?!! Here I am getting ready to measure and cut the ribbon for my ribbon share. I still have 3 slots open. Wouldn't you like 2 yards of all the new ruffles, and polka dot and denim ribbons (34 yards of ribbon) for just $32.00 that way you can decide which you like best and buy what you love. I know I like to have ribbon in my hand to see the texture and the exact color. Let me know if you want to join the ribbon share.
