Shhh, let me tell you a secret. Rob took the kids to a friend's cabin this weekend and I had ABSOLUTELY nothing on the schedule except working the weekend (nights) at the hospital and church on Sunday. So, I probably should have just turned off the heat in the house because I spent the rest of the waking moments playing in my studio with all my new stamps from the Spring Catalog and ok, I did work on the newsletter, and I did whip up that quick You-tube video that I shared yesterday and I did work on the Evergreen Stamps By Mail direction.. but all told, it was the BEST WEEKEND EVER! I got to play and I got A LOT accomplished.
One of the things that I worked on, ok played with…was the December Stamps By Mail Kits. If you aren't familiar with the Stamps By Mail program, let me share it with you. What I do is pick a stamp set and then I design two different cards, cut and package cardstock so that the recipients will be able to stamp each card four times and then I whip up directions for the kits too. (Think Stamp Camp that comes in the mail) All the stamper needs to do is have on hand, (or order from me) the limited number of non-consumable supplies on the supplies list and I provide all the rest. The Card Stock Kit is only $13.50 for 8 cards with envelopes. I know, too cool and even better is the featured Stamp Set and featured accessory is 15% off with the purchase of the kit.
SO FOR DECEMBER..we are doing Button Buddies on pg 40
and the accessory is the Brights Buttons. It's was chosen by request of my mom and I ALWAYS do what my mom tells me to do. Actually she was looking for a "kid-friendly" set that could be used BY kids or FOR kids birthdays. This is the big box of care packages that she's sending to my nieces so that they will have some crafting during Christmas Vacation. I'm positive that they will LOVE it.
What do you think…Here's Card #1. Originally I wanted pink pigs but I needed to keep the supply list lean and mean as the second card needs to use the flower and it had to be with DSP and more importantly, buttons that I had enough of, on hand. You know, I think I like rainbow pigs!
