And that means the stuff I ordered last year has to go. . . somewhere else, because I have a small room and if I don't get it out of here, I will be featured on the hoarders show and we don't want that, now do we?
So please come over on Saturday and bring your dollar bills and take home some great gently used products that you can enjoy and then pass on to your friends! Saturday, June 21 at 9:30 am. It is a fun frenzy for an hour or so, and then the craziness subsides and for another hour or so it is less crazy and then anyone that is left, I sneak stuff into their car so I don't have to put it away in my house.
This cute shaker card will be featured on Thursday July 28 at 7 pm when I offer a class with 4 different shaker cards. I will share tips and techniques to make shaker cards EASY and fun featuring a new product or two that will knock your socks off. RSVP now to save your spot. $20, bring a friend!

It's funny how switching up just one little thing can make a card go from "cute" to "super cute" and it's hard to even say what it was that made the big diff. Is it the sentiment? The swap of the bow for the balloon? Maybe the fact that the flowers are just a bit bigger than the balloons? The pink panels are brighter than the orange panels?
Nope. It is the background. The white background just doesn't make the card POP like the black background does. If you swapped everything over to the black background it would all look great. . . the black background just makes it all look better.
I love a clean, crisp white card, but sometimes the black is just the better way to go!

One of the first things to be neglected is blogging, but if you are missing me, feel free to visit in person or by phone or if super desperate, try Instagram, LOL
I snuck out of town for a long weekend of crafting and one of my projects was this gorgeous canvas. It is totally CASEd from a super talented demonstrator, Krista Frattin, from Canada. She is an Artisan Award winner and I love her style, I CASE her work often. We will be making this canvas Wednesday night if you're interested in stopping by. It is so easy, just die-cut the flowers on the Big Shot, spin the roses and hot glue everything in place. And it is STUNNING in person! I will be framing it and adding it to a wall collection in my living room.
And I will try to be more loyal to the blog. But summer is coming, so no promises.
If you need a catalog, leave me a comment. It is fabulous, so you definitely want one!

So, this month, when I attended the monthly meeting of demonstrators in my small group, we agreed to swap cards that were CASEd from the Stampin' Up catalog. I am sharing four today, and next post I'll show the remaining few.
I love getting together with other stampers and trying out new techniques. We then talk about them and discuss whether we love 'em or hate 'em or what we think our customers might think. And it is good for all of us to step outside our own comfort zone, right?
Well, I'm off to a 4-day craft retreat in Wisconsin at a kids camp this weekend. So I'll be snoozing in a cabin, bunk bed and all the fun that can be! So, don't be too jealous!
