Snowflake Wishes for Some Cooler Weather

Snowflake Wishes https://www.stampingwithdi.com/2020/08/snowflake-wishes-for-some-cooler-weather.html

I had a busy 3 days with the Stampin' Up! Virtual Leaders Summit, and it was amazing!!! I took so many notes, and pictures of quotes and power points and I still have a bunch of classes to listen to as I cut cardstock and stuff envelopes for my Virtual Fall Social.

I did want to share one of the things I got done and in the mail and that was the gorgeous Christmas card of the month for August.

Here are some of the kits ready to get stuffed and off to new homes. I am looking outside and I am hoping we are going to be getting some more rain, so will cut the post short.

Pretty Blue Box

Leaders summit gift https://www.stampingwithdi.com/2020/08/pretty-blue-box.html

I can't remember if I shared my pretty blue box before?  I know I did not share what was in it if I did...cause I was waiting till today to post pictures, not everyone had received their boxes yet.

Ta! Da!  Pretty champagne flutes with the Stampin' Up! logo. Too pretty to use (I am a clutz - so I just pretended to toast during the live) they are back up in my display cabinet next to my Tiffany Advisory Board award. Thanks Stampin' Up! for always making us feel special.

We were supposed to be in New Orleans for a few days at Leaders Summit, but it was changed to a virtual event. Thank goodness with the horrible storms headed that way. I pray everyone is safe.

Today started the first day of the 3 day virtual event, and it was neat to see everyone...well I couldn't see everyone...but a lot of people. We tease we can wear whatever we want...business on the top, jammies on the bottom.

I can't wait to see what we talk about tomorrow and the classes I will take.

You know when you are working on something and then you look at it a whole different way? That is how it was when I was die cutting out all the poinsettia pieces for a make n take for my Virtual Fall Social, I had them stacked up and thought "hey in yellow that would be a sun" and tada! the sun was born. Then I was like well now I need to make a card...and what better to go with a sun? Yes a rainbow...so ROYGBIV to the rescue as well as the cute set that came with the Simply Citrus Kit. Don't ya love it?  Now I need to make a sunflower!!!

September Seasonal Card of the Month Class in the Mail - Harvest Hellos & Apple Builder Punch

Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

 

 


September's Classes in the Mail - Sign Up Today!

 

The month of August is winding down, if you have bonus coupons don't forget to spend them or they will expire...
 
Now to announce my Classes in the Mail for September.
 
I just love this Poinsettia Petals bundle and you will too.
 
This is the fifth month for doing Christmas cards and this is such a beautiful set and matching die. Are you enjoying getting your cards done early? It makes the hot summer not feel so hot if you can think about winter. In Arizona we have had such a hot hot summer and I sure hope fall is coming soon.
 
For September's Christmas Card Class in the Mail, we will be using the bundle "Poinsettia Petals " shown above. You will need the stamp set and the die to finish your cards, so keep that in mind when ordering the class, your pieces will not be die cut out ahead of time.
 
This class has been so popular over the years here are the details if you are new:
 
Each month you will do 10 identical cards, but each month will be a different card. Class fee is due no later than September 10 or while supplies last. These sell out quick!
 
Please note: this is not a club, you can do one month or two, or all or skip a month, it is totally up to you.
 
The Christmas Card of the Month Class in the Mail is $35.00 per month and this will include one completed card for you to copy from and supplies for 10 matching cards (sometimes the DSP varies, if used, but the card is the same) and envelopes mailed to you by priority mail. You will use your own inks and stamps at home (you can tweak the card with what you have at home if you don't want to use the bundle), nothing will be stamped on your supplies.
 
If you want the "Poinsettia Petals" bundle #155148 as well you can order it with your class fee for an extra $56.50 (photopolymer*), you save tax and shipping that way - or you can order it in my store with anything else you may want to order. Let me know if you need it or if you have it already when you sign up for class.
 
*Remember with cling and photopolymer stamps you will need to supply your own clear blocks, these are sold separately.
 
Let me know you want to order September's Christmas Card of the Month Class and I will email you the paypal link.
 
Class packets will be mailed the week of September 28 and I can only ship within the US, thanks for understanding.
 
********************************************************
 
This set is so cute and the ideas are endless. Is it a pumpkin? Is it an apple?
 
It has a matching punch shown below that you will need to finish your cards, so make sure to keep that in mind when ordering. Your pieces will not be punched out for you ahead of time.
 
For September's Seasonal Card Class in the Mail, we will be using the "Harvest Hellos" stamp set. Like I mentioned above you will need the punch to finish your cards.
 
This class has been so popular over the years that I have started doing them year round even while I am doing the Christmas Card Class in the Mail. Here are the details if you are new:
 
Each month you will do 10 identical cards, but each month will be a different card. Class fee is due no later than September 10 or while supplies last. These sell out quick!

If you want the "Harvest Hellos" stamp set #150581 as well you can order it with your class fee for an extra $21.00 (cling*), if you need the "Apple Builder" punch #150663 as well that is an extra $18.00 you save tax and shipping that way - or you can order it through my store along with anything else you may want to order.

August Mystery Card Gut Challenge

August Mystery Card Gut Challenge https://www.stampingwithdi.com/2020/08/august-mystery-card-gut-challenge.html

Every month I do a card gut challenge with my team. Card guts are what I call the card pieces to make a card. Now I do them as a mystery, they don't see the pieces ahead of time like I used to do. They let me know at the beginning of the month if they want that month's guts. So these were the pieces for the month of August. It is so cool to see what they do with them.  We do a zoom at the end of the month and they share what they did, and then they post them in our private FaceBook group. I love the mystery part cause this way they don't have any idea of what my finished card will look like.

Beautiful Autumn card https://www.stampingwithdi.com/2020/08/august-mystery-card-gut-challenge.html

This is what I did with my pieces. I got a swap card from Amy Storrie and I changed it slightly. Thanks Amy!
