So, I'm back from our national Stampin' Up! convention and I'm energized and ready to STAMP!  My little mind is on creative overload and I can't wait to get to the stamp desk today and start working on adorable samples and the likes.   I swapped over a hundred cards at convention and my downline and friends had an evening where we all stamped together!  Amazing cards.  As I promised in my August newsletter, here's my favorite card that I swapped.  It's based on the card that was the Validate Me contest winner, which was based on a card from last year's Christmas Card Buffet class.   See we can even recycle card ideas.   :)  The ribbon pulls out to reveal the message.


  • Stamps:  Serene Snowflakes (mini catalog)
  • Inks:  Soft Suede, Real Red
  • CS:  Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper, Soft Suede, Real Red
  • Misc:  1 1/4" Circle Punch, New Snowflake Punch, White Taffeta Ribbon

This set is from our new mini catalog and if you thought the big catalog rocked….this mini is amazing.  39 pages of incredible stamps, accessories and digital scrapbooking?  (that's a teaser!) and the best news is that we are having an awesome special for Sept-November.  Host a workshop/party of $250 and you can select an item (some limitations apply) from the mini for only $10. So, I'm pretty sure classes and parties will rock in the next six months.  Let's get your party on the calendar NOW before the best dates are gone!
