Coffee and Friends and a day of LASTS

Monday, March 31, 2014
TODAY is the last day to get in on this weeks WEEKLY DEALS

Click HERE to check them out and place your online order.

Here is a card I made last week using the Core'dinations Sandable Paper (Brights in this case). I cased this card from Brandy Cox who does a great tutorial on how to make the coffee paper to make your card smell just like fresh brewed coffee!!


I made a bunch of these cards to give to our youth pastor who has taken a call to a church in Chicago and we will really miss him.  Last Friday night he gave a final concert for the church and a fundraiser for his mission.  As he was singing the songs of many amazing Christian artists (and did a fabulous job), I kept thinking this is no different than how I showcase all these amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Occasionally people write their own songs but never all of the ones they sing.  I occasionally design my own card but I love to share some favorites from other crafty people.  It really made me feel so much better knowing it is all good!!

If you hop on over to the CLEARANCE RACK they are selling a full package of Gumball Green Core'dinations Paper for only $2.79.

Remember if you place a $50 order you will get in on the March Blog Candy TODAY is the LAST DAY for that as well. I will be drawing a name tomorrow morning and  the winner.  You will also get one FREE item from the Sale a bration flyer and your name will go on my 50/50 board for a chance to win $50 FREE in product from me!  Right now there are only 2 available numbers left. This is the blog candy that you will win...


TODAY is also the LAST DAY to get in on the Sale a bration FREE product deal with a $50 order.  Do you realize how much you can get with a $50 order if you order with me on line TODAY!!??  With a $50 dollar on line order you get..
  • One FREE item from the Sale a bration flyer
  • You get to pick a number on my 50/50 board for a chance to win $50 in FREE product of your choice from ME!
  • You get your name in the drawing for the March Blog Candy (pictured above)
  • You get a punch on a frequent stampers punch card - when you get 10 punches you get to pick out one FREE stamp set from ME!
Don't delay get your order in TODAY! just click HERE

Here is a cute 3x3 note card made using one of the FREE stamp sets you can get with your $50 purchase. (You're Lovely)


This card was inspired by Laurie Zoellmer
And how about this next one that we made at last weeks COME STAMP WITH ME TUESAY CLASS - I think it is one of my favorites from the stamp set Petal Parade.  This was stamped on the Note Cards which come with 20 note cards and envelopes for only $5.95.  Super great deal!  They are a little smaller than the standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card that I normally make but they are still mail-able and perfect for thank you's or in this case to just say "HI".  The 'Hello' comes from the stamp set FOUR YOU and can be found in the regular catalog.




TODAY is also the LAST DAY to get the FREE 5 piece In-color marker set with your subscription to My Paper Pumpkin.  I only need ONE more subscription to achieve my goal for March.  Please go to mypaperpumpkin.com to subscribe and PLEASE put my name down when prompted for a demonstrator (Christi Waite, Hudsonville, MI)

My Paper Pumpkin for March

Wednesday, March 19, 2014
WOOO HOOO!!
My Paper Pumpkin arrived in the mail Monday!  I was so excited to get it because I was given a sneak peek at Leadership as to what was coming and I remembered it being a VERY nice kit.  I got everything I needed to create 8 cute, cute cards - take a look...


The gold foil envelope liners I actually cut 2" off the bottom and will be able to use that on another project some day.  The geometric stamps are one of the TRENDY styles out right now.  I am sure you have seen that as you have been shopping around the clothing department store.  The Super Clear Photopolymer Stamps were so easy to line up perfectly.


You have until March 31st to get in on the FREE MARKER SET with your My Paper Pumpkin subscription.  Just go to mypaperpumpkin.com to get started and please choose me (Christi Waite, Hudsonville, MI) for your demonstrator when prompted.  This subscription will arrive in your mail each month, but you need to put it on hold or stop it completely there is no minimum commitment.  However, I am guessing you will love it so much you will look forward to it coming each month.

I am in a contest to get 2 more brand new My Paper Pumpkin subscribers by the end of the month so how about helping me out??!!  For the first 2 people who sign up and help me to achieve my goal I will give you a March Package and the second subscriber will get the April Package.  Because when you sign up you will get a "starter kit" as shown in the photo above.  It is called a 'starter kit' because it includes a clear block that you will use for your further kits that arrive each month.

This is the Blog Candy for March - click HERE for all the details

The punch art leprechaun was from Michelle Suit's blog
The stamp set is called OCCASIONS ALPHABET still available in the main catalog on page 134

A Red Hot Stamper Swap

Friday, March 14, 2014
The Red Hot Stampers were challenged to join a Occasions Catalog/Sale a bration Card Swap for our March downline meeting.  The rules: to use product from the Occasions Catalog and/or the Sale a bration flyer.  We were also allowed to use product from the main catalog - you know, like paper and ink and so forth.  I read on someones blog that she tried to take a product that looked more challenging to her and try to come up with something - to stretch her creative mind. I thought I should give it a try too.  The one item I did purchase (because I always buy ALL the embossing folders) is the AMPERSAND TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER.  This item is located in the Occasions Catalog on page 22 for only $7.95.  Right next to the Embossing Folder is the WATERCOLOR WONDER DESIGNER WASHI TAPE.  I love Washi Tape, but once again, I don't always go to it so I thought I would combine the two items.  When we were at Leadership, one of the gals talked about the different trends that were out there for decorating, clothing, etc and GOLD was one of the HOT TRENDS that she found, so there is a lot of GOLD found in the Occasions Catalog.  I tend to be a silver girl with jewelry, etc. but since I was stretching myself I thought I would jump into the GOLD - kind of an Olympic feel I guess!!  Okay, enough talk... Here's my swap card...



The Card Stock that I used is the BRUSHED GOLD pg 156 Main Catalog $7.95 and Real Red Coordinations Sandable Card stock pg 143 Main Catalog $23.95 (you get 40 sheets; 4 each of 10 colors - Brights in this situation).  I tried sanding the Ampersand, but really didn't like how it looked for this particular card.  So why did I still use the Coordinations paper?  Well, I really liked the textured look to the Coordinations paper.  I know it is hard to see in this photo but trust me it really does look much nicer than the normal Real Red Card Stock for this card.  It is also heavier and the embossed ampersand really stands out nice.

After I got all the cards done I started clearing off my work station and spotted my GOLD SEQUIN TRIM (page 23 of the Occasions Catalog $4.95) and decided to place a few on the card to see if it jazzed it up a bit...I like it!! so now here is the new revised version of my swap card



The stamp set I used is called PERFECT PENNANTS page 27 of the Occasions Catalog $21.95 (clear mount).  A little Versa Mark with GOLD Embossing Powder made the stamp image jump off the card. Another NEW item is the STARBURST FRAMELITS found on page 34 of the Occasions Catalog.  What is neat about these is that you can save 15% if you purchase the STARBURST FRAMELITS with the coordinating stamp set called STARBURST SAYINGS also found on page 34 of the Occasions Catalog.  The bundle is $38.95 (clear mount).  Separately the price is $18.95 (clear mount stamp set) and $26.95 for the Framelits.  You will save $6.95 by buying the bundle!!  

One of the great things about being involved in a card swap is that you come away with tons of great ideas for upcoming classes which I am sure I will be using.  Every card was absolutely beautiful!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lucky Shamrock

Thursday, March 13, 2014
A special order card for my friend (inspired by Linda Callahan)


I used a non SU clover stamp but the center image is a retired stamp called Happy Shamrock.  I don't have much call to make St. Patricks Day cards but I was glad I had these on hand.  The pearls were colored with a gold permanent marker.  I stamped the clovers first then ran it through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  Linda's card had little pearls around the scallop circle but I thought I was probably stretching it to put 2 pearls in the corner because this card if for a special little 7 year old boy.

2 brand new Photopolymer stamps and my own Sweetie Pie

Wednesday, March 12, 2014
You are going to love these two new Photopolymer stamps.



SWEETIE PIE #136849 $13.95

And SWEETIE PIE FRAMES #137121 $13.95

These frames were most likely designed to go with the cute little Sweetie Pie faces but I can see a whole new world opening up with these designs, and at only $13.95 each they are a STEAL!!


Now I will share a little bit about my own Sweetie Pie:  Gracie

Gracie gets to come to Gramma's house 3 days a week and one of the things she has learned to enjoy is making the bed with Gramma and Grampa...Why?

 After we get the blankets up she climbs on the bed waiting for us to cover her up with the comforter



It has really become a silly time each morning, what are we ever going to do when she gets too big to do these simple, fun, precious things?  After this she loves to put all the pillows on the bed, and let me tell you we have a LOT of pillows - 

and then there is Peter the bear of course.

Thanks for stopping by!
