Warm Wishes & Holiday Stamp Camp

On Tuesday, Penny and her friends gathered together to make cards at her workshop.  What a fun time.  Amanda (on the right) had never touched a stamp before and she was so excited when she finished her card. She mentioned that her husband would never believe she made this cute card.  Next to her is Sheri a seasoned stamper friend.  You can tell she is serious with her head down and working away. :)

Margaret in the front with the orange shirt is also  newby to stamping and you can tell by that big smile that she was loving stamping too.  Penny and Bonnie along with Sheri are in my stamp clubs and classes on a regular basis.

If you want to join us for a fun afternoon or evening of creating contact me today. I promise you will find your creative side and it is a great stress reliever (I have heard it is cheaper than therapy)  :)

 This is the card we made and they loved the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I borrowed this idea from a fellow demo Carol Valentine from our meeting on Monday to share ideas to share with  our customers.

I love, love. love single sided note cards and this is the one I demonstrated before they made their cards. 


Here are some extra tag samples I made to show them.  

Supply List:

On another note this week when I was on facebook I saw a sample by Ann Craig and I just had to make it.  I love the different ways you can use the embossing folders by adding ink directly to the folder.  This is my first try and I certainly have room for improvement. I just love the way it looks and it is such a great masculine card.  Let me know if you want to have a class with your friends to make this card. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to sign up for my Stamp Camp Oct 3rd. Check it out and contact me today to save your spot. 
 Blessings, Frances

As soon as I get notification that you have ordered I will pop 3 cards using this set in the mail to you. I will be working on samples to show you so you know how to use these adorable stamps.

Reminder to check out the Paper Share HERE from the new holiday catalog!

Card Class 9/3 ~ New Holiday Catalog Live 9/1 ~ Paper Share

Sign up today to get started on your Christmas cards!  Did you notice that cute poinsettia on the card on the left.  You will be making it in class with the new Festive Flower Builders Punch!

Today's the day!  You can order from the NEW Holiday Stampin' UP! catalog click HERE to view it!
In case that doesn't work click here
If you don't have a demonstrator and would like a Holiday Stampin' UP! catalog just shoot me an email and I will get one to you.  I promise you it is soooooooooo over the top with new products and ideas. Check it out on line now by clicking the link above.  

As a thank you for your loyalty to me I would like to give you a little treat at the end of every month when you place an online order with me.  I am really thankful that you have chosen me to be your demonstrator and are willing to place orders via my online shop.

If you would like to receive a little thank you through the mail, all you need to do is to place an order via my Stampin’ UP! website  at my on line shop.

How can I get a free gift?

At the beginning of every month, I will issue a new hostess code and post this code on my blog (upper right hand column).  The code is valid for the entire month and when you place an online order during that month (minimum purchase $25 excluding postage and shipping) you will receive a thank you gift from me. This does not affect the order you place online.  The products will still be shipped directly to your home in approx 7-10 business days.

Once I finalize the hostess code at the end of the month I work out how many hostess rewards we have totaled throughout the month. I then divide the hostess rewards among the awesome stampers who have ordered online that month using the hostess code and choose some current product to pop in the mail to you as a thank you.

Please note the thank you gift will not be mailed out till mid way through the following month and specific items cannot be requested or exchanged for other items.  I get the fun job of choosing something fun for you all.  The thank you gift is only available to my online order customers who spend $25+ excluding postage and shipping. (It does not include club orders, Stampin' Bunco orders or class orders)

If you spend $150+ with your own order please DO NOT use the hostess code.  Any order totaling $150+ can choose their own free items for their hostess rewards as part of the order process.

Please DO NOT tick the box to request that your demonstrator is not able to contact you.  If you do I am unable to see any of your contact information or your name and will be unable to send a thank you gift to you even if you do use the code.

The hostess code cannot be added once an order has been placed so please make sure you don’t forget to add it.

It is simple here is how to do it….
  • Visit my website and click the order online button
  • Set up an account if you don’t have one already
  • Place an order for $25+ (and no more than $150 as you would benefit from the Stampin rewards with that order)
  • Enter the monthly hostess code (it will ask you for it after you add one item to the shopping cart!)
  • Complete your order
If you have any questions let me know.
