Membership perks

So this week I wanted to do a quick video for my Stampin4fun club girls and as I was setting up I figured why not do it as a facebook live in my Stampin4fun with Gen group.

So, for today's watch it Wednesday I thought I would share the video that I did.





We do all kinds of interesting cards at my technique class.  If you are able to come visit me in the Markham area, please come and check it out!  Next technique class is October 1st and the theme is using background stamps.

Most of the ladies that come to my technique class are part of my Stampin4fun club membership.

I think membership is perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy Stampin inspiration on a regular basis. 
Stampin4fun club members enjoy one class a month, free catalogues, free product, invitation to my annual host appreciation event, discount on stamp camp, 20% birthday discount card, monthly exclusive tutorials and other perks throughout the year.

The membership "fee" is simply to put a minimum $30 order each month for 10 months.

Here's the cards we made at the last technique class: theme fancy folds


Thanks for dropping in!  Don't hesitate to contact me about joining Stampin4fun club membership or anything else!

Stampin4fun Happenings!

Stamp Camp always gets me in gear to get my class calendar in order.  There are always far more ideas in my mind than I can actually get into a class.  It's maddening really. 
Why can't I stamp every day and show people every single idea I've seen, tried, learned? (insert temper tantrum here)
Yes, I guess sleep is important and so is eating and resting and family activities

Another Catalogue, Another Stamp camp!

The stamp camp event is an event to enjoy a new catalogue.  There's stamping demonstrations, 10 different make n takes, inspring displays and more! 

With this great new holiday catalogue there was no shortage of things to enjoy!

I did a demonstration using the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle:


I showed how this stamp set could make a simple and stunning card like this one: 


I used Powder Pink here but this design was originally seen as a swap card I received from my friend Lynsay Mahon. She did the card in Coastal Cabana which was also lovely.  In fact, I was inspired to make the card in a few different colours


I also demonstrated a few fun things that could be done with the die. 

My demonstration was just one of three!  Other demonstrations showcased the Wishing You Well stamp set as well as the galvanized paper. 

There was inspiration all over the room! 



After the demonstrations everyone got right into stamping the 10 different cards.  All kinds of paper, embellishments, stamp sets and more were used so everyone could get a feel of the new goodies! 

There was a lunch break that included some delicious greek food too!  





Hundreds of dollars of prizes were raffled off...



but the best part to me was being in a room full of happy stampers. 

I am so glad to enjoy stamping with all the ladies this past Saturday! 

The next Stamp Camp is January 19th.  We'll be showing off the occasions catalogue and salebration brochure!  You don't want to miss it!  There's only 10 spots left! 

Contact me today!   and don't forget to head to my online store to nab all that's new in the holiday catalogue! 


Thanks for dropping in!

Holiday Catalogue Watch it Wednesday

This new holiday catalogue has been live for just a week and I've heard lots of feedback about how there are just so many things to drool and desire!

Here's one product that catches my eye:
The Christmas traditions punch box.  (item 148030)
You might miss it because it is on the very first page of the catalogue.
I love the decorative tin and it incudes the stamp set, punch, block and ink spots.. All you need is some cardstock and ribbon and you've got some cute tags!



This tin is just one of the beauties in the new holiday catalogue.

If you haven't had a chance to put your feet up and browse the new book , you can get a quick, fun view by watching this video

Enjoy!

Day 7 of the 7 day streak!

Whew!  I made it!  I managed to have a blog post each day for seven days!  I hope you enjoyed the daily inspiration.

I hope you got a little taste of the holiday catalogue.  You'll notice that my streak focused on the fall holidays more than Christmas.

I guess that's because OBVIOUSLY we all right away drool over the new Christmas stuff in the catalogue.  I didn't want you to miss out on the other hidden gems.

However for today's inspiration I will share a Christmas card swap I received from Emile P in Quebec.


This cheerful card made me smile as soon as I saw it so I thought I would share it with you.

The designer series paper with the Christmas light bulbs are so fun!


Don't forget that many of our stamp sets including the Making Christmas Bright stamp set are available in French.  

To see the translated sets, just go to my online store and on the index on the left, one of the titles says "translated" . Just click that to see all the options! 

Thanks for joining in with me for my seven day sharing streak!  I'll continue with my blogging but it will be back to my usual maybe 3 times a week routine.  :-)
Don't hesitate to contact me.  I love to connect with you.

Sharing Spooky today!

Are you still with me on this streaking journey?  I was just so excited about the new holiday catalogue that I wanted to share some samples daily.

We all know that it's one thing to look at the catalogue and quite another thing to see the products being used in various cards and projects.

I hope you are finding the daily inspiration gets your stampin mojo flowing!

Since halloween will be here before we know it, I thought I would share a halloween themed sample with you.


First of all, if you have been following with the daily inspiration you will see that the Tin Tile embossing folder is a must have.  I think almost every card I have been showcasing has used this folder! 

This swap card I received from Jacynthe G. is no exception! 

I found this card very exceptional for a few reasons. 

1) I loved her use of the ribbon to create the fringe 
2) I love how she used the new galvinized metallic paper, stamped it and then glazed the whole piece with clear embossing powder to make it shine! 

 A lot of work went into this swap card! 

She used the Cauldron Bubble stamp set from the Toil & Trouble Suite



Hope today's blog post inspires you to get creating for halloween! 

Thanks for dropping in!  Don't forget to see the last sample of my 7 day sharing streak tomorrow!

Another Country Home Sample

Hello!  We are almost at the end of my 7 day sharing streak! If you have been following along, I hope you've enjoyed the daily inspiration of stamping samples showcasing product from the holiday catalogue.

Today's beauty is a swap card I received from Chris C  (another Team S.T.I.C girl and yes, we have a lot of talent on our Team!)



Just like yesterday's card, this card also uses the Country Home stamp set. 

I love it how you can take the exact same stamp set and make two totally different cards! 

Here's a close up of some of the sweet details


Did you notice the new braided linen trim in the holiday catalogue?  It is a wonderful alternative to our regular linen thread when you want something a little thicker. 

The complete supply list for the card is below.  Don't hesitate to head to my online store to do a little shopping.  Remember, all online orders $40 or more using host code: URZYGA4N   Will get the new chicken wire element from the holiday catalogue FREE as a gift from me!
