On the cruise Stampin' Up! had a "Trading Post" room, that was where we spun the wheel every day, and guessed how many items were in a bag, where they had us pick up our claim prizes, they even had a man corner with True Grit playing. They had kids toys and even a big old tub of buttons the kids could "pan for gold" in…well they were actually panning for red buttons.
The last night on our bed we got a paper sack full of buttons (I am assuming these were buttons from said tub)…hmmmm…I think I'll be washing mine first. I did just say that for 7 days kids panned their fingers and whatever were on their fingers through these buttons…don't think I'm being silly, I had a little boy and I know how his hands looked half the time so now you are saying, "thank you Diana for washing the buttons that we will use at class". You are so very welcome.
There were also displays of cards, and 3-d items as well as demonstration stuff in there, so I took a bunch of pictures so I could case, tweak you know all that kinda fun stuff. One card that I totally loved was this one, I did tweak it a little, the original had glitter on it and some butterflies, please look on the left side colomn under "Di"ctionary for what the word tweak means on my blog, seems it means different things elsewhere. Well not here people, it is a good word here!
Anyway back to the card, what do you think? Pretty eh? I don't know who did it as it was hung on the board, but thanks I love it.
Paper: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, First Edition Specialty paper
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Basic Black
Misc: Pearls, Petal Cone Die for the banner, Baja Breeze seam binding, Framed Tulips embossing folder, sticky strip
Isn't it pretty?
Oh and another thing I forgot to show you before I left for cruise.
You know we sell Bakers Twine now right? It is in the mini catalog and it comes in three colors:
Early Espresso/White #123124 or Cherry Cobbler/White #123125 or White #124262 you get 25 yards for only $2.95, I mean everyone needs some. So anyway it comes in a package and I thought I would just wind it on some old wooden spools, and let me tell you 25 yards is a lot. I kept winding and winding and winding.
Don't forget about the retiring list of items, you don't want to miss out on any of your favorites. Thanks to those of you that have already placed an on-line order in my store this month, it means so much to me. I will be making a thank you card with a new stamp set and sending it to everyone that orders in my store for the month of June. I already know the set I am going to use too.
Don't forget the clearance list while you are there, and remember if your order totals at least $150.00 you earn Hostess benefits, so make sure to watch your totals and don't miss out.
Well I better get my butt back to cutting paper.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in!
