June Workshop

The new catalog has arrived and many of you have already enjoyed a fun Stampin' Up! class or workshop.  If you have not had the pleasure of attending an event with the new catalog yet, why not contact me about having your own private class, for you and a few friends.  Earn some great free products, it is the best way to build up your stamping collection!  

Even though the samples I am sharing today are from retired stamp sets, I still wanted to post them as I know many of you appreciate having copies of things you have made at previous workshops.

The Wild About You stamp set is retired but you can still order the Designer Series Paper Pink Flamingo, The Top Note Die and great Background 1 Textuze Plates are still available along with the Cameo Coral cardstock and Real Red cardstock. You can use this card sample as a template for you next card creation.

Convention 09 banner

A special event every year is the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.  First I love the small town fill of the big city of Salt Lake.  This will be my 9th Stampin' Up! Convention and each year it is as exciting as the first.  We learn about the new products in the catalog, are inspired by endless stamped samples and making new friends and seeing old. 

I am sorry that I wasn't able to post last week my hubby and I went on our 7th annual motorcycle ride with friends from his work. We put on just over 1100 miles in 4 days.  Thank heavens I will be traveling to Salt Lake via airplane (smiling).  This week I will be spending some time organizing and putting together things for this upcoming year.  I hope to post a blog or two, but we will see what time permits. 

I will be out of my SU office a bit more this summer but that is one reason I started my own business as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator so I could have flexible hours and travel more with my husband whom has a great deal of vacation time each year.  Now I do need to dedicate a certain amount of time to the business but the beauty of it is I can set my own hours.  Have you ever considered having your own business?  Doing something fun and getting paid for it?  Working part time and getting paid like you work full time?  You can check out here more information about doing what I do!

Well now onto some paper work… which is the one thing I do procrastinate!  Hopefully I can share later this week some pictures of or trip and of course a card idea or two.
