Clearance Item's!!!

Until now, clearance items have been limited to demonstrator and online orders to ensure that product was available at the time of purchase. When the Hostess Code was introduced, it became possible to add clearance items and to have them included on workshop orders. To make it even easier to add clearance items to any type of order, we have lifted the ban on placing clearance items on workshop orders.  We still strongly recommend that customers order clearance items on online orders or workshop orders via a hostess code to guarantee availability. Customers may add clearance items to her paper order (for a customer or workshop order), but because clearance items are only available while supplies last, it's possible that the item will not be available with the order is submitted, making it necessary for you to contact her, find an alternate item and possibly affect hostess benefits.
Spread the word and help your customers get the most bang for their buck!

Contact me for a current Hostess Code... if you want to hold online shows you can do that too!

Hugs!
Cary

Gabriella's Thank You Cards

Two weeks ago my little Gabriella promoted from 8th grade to 9th... No biggie right? She is now a High School Student. :-/

We were blessed to have family, friends and neighbors there to cheer her on and celebrate following the ceremony at our home.  Gabriella CASE'd the following card:
 


Stampin' with Lorraine

Today Lorraine and Caleb drove out for another Playdate... Boy, do we have fun! We needed masculine birthday cards so we CASE'd one, then we played with the Eastern Elegance DSP, lastly we played with the  Crazy, Mixed-Up Love stamp set. 




Here is CASE #1....

CASEing with Lorraine

Today Lorraine and I gathered our new stamp sets and set out to make samples!! We were able to whip out four CASE's  before the time came for her to leave.  We make a good team... Too bad we have to wait til next week to make more!

 
This card was inspired from a card I googled... I use Google often to get inspirations and to find links to blog hop! Here is the original Lorraine and I were going to CASE .. this blogger claims to have fuzzy blue socks... I like that! She has a ton of great ideas! I am not saying we will not go back and copy closer to her sample... its quite cute... but we went on an adventure and there was no turning back.. love the Birthday Cake Stamp... love, love, love the Really Good Greeting's set. Lastly, check out the new Alphabet Press Embossing Folder. You can make this card at my Birthday Basics One Sheet Wonder Class on June 23rd... remember that I will be showing you how to make up to 20 cards out of one sheet of Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper!!! AWESOME! I know right?

 
Here is a CASE that Lorraine and I happened upon signing into Pinterest.
 I have a few pinner's I follow that have the same Stampin' Up love as I do.  So lucky us... Lorraine and I found this CASE here. We used SU's Chalk Talk Bundle, the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder, the new in color Boutique Details, and the pretty lace doilies.  Have I told you how I was not a foo foo girl and Stampin' Up is bringing me around!!!

 This is a CASE Lorraine found over the weekend.. it showcases the new Beautifully Baroque Bundle, Eastern Elegance DSP,  and the ribbon... gotta love the new stretch ribbon!  Ok.. Lorraine and I adore the stitched ribbon too.. and chose to use that on the card instead of using a mock stitch like the CASE here.
Here is the last but not least card we CASE'd ... so cute! Utilizing our Flower Shop Bundle (Stamp set and punch @ 15% off)  we went to town!  Check out the details: candy dots, rhinestones big and small, and how the new circle framelits work. 
 
 
The bomb diggity of my whole day was using Lorraine's Magnetic platform to keep our framelits in their spot. I am ordering mine today!  I am SOLD!!! best idea ever!! The small investment of $39.95 replaces the stack of post it notes, and heartache of slipping edgelits and framelits! You will be seeing me dance around using this!! Thank You Stampin' Up for making a product that emhances our talents and of course your products!!
 
Thank YOU Lorraine for spending the drive in traffic to play for the day, our creations and laughter are worth it!

Prayer Request for Jade Marie Olson

Hello all my crafty ladies... I need you to put your prayer warrior hat on today!

 
 
Here is just one of the cards I am mailing off to little Jade Marie... her dear cousin Marie is a grand pal of mine and she has asked me to pray for Jade Marie and send cards.  Lil Jade has a rare for of leukemia and she is hospitalized in Arizona so Marie cannot just go see her everyday.  So in these instances it is important to pray!  Lift our hearts and thoughts to God and he will help us all give some joy to this little angel!
 
I want to use Stampin' Up's 2013-2014 Ronald McDonald stamp set called Tag It... but I will earn it free at convention (Happy 25th Anniversary pressie to me) so until then I figured I will send her a daily card of the other 50+ favorite stamp sets I play with!
 
Check out the Tag It set:  

One stamp set can make all the difference. When you purchase the Tag It Stamp Set, Stampin' Up! donates $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. Complete with decorative tag images for six different occasions, the Tag It set coordinates with the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies.

 I am super excited to play with the Chalk Talk Set too!  SO look out Jade.. I am sending you prayers and cards and loads of speedy recovery wishes! As soon as this set arrives in my hand you will see it in many forms!

You too can send Jade Marie a card here is her addy:
Jade Marie Olson
c/o Todd Warren
7420 W. Vermont Ave,
Glendale, AZ 85303

his house is the closest to the Ronald McDonald house so he gathers and delivers her mail!

June Sister's in Stamping

Do you love stamping but never take the time to play with all your product? Do you like learning new techniques? Our group (named Sister's in Stamping) started because we wanted a way to get together and get samples and visit!  We meet the first Tuesday of each month.  Would you like to join our group or start one of your own?  Here are our rules: We meet once a month at the same location.  Each person is responsible to prep and bring a sample card and all the materials for each other person in our group.  So we prep for 6 cards total.  Then we exchange and share details. It is so much fun. Contact me if you would like to learn more or start a group on your own.

Here are the creative cards we made last night!
 
Maries Card:  she loves the Swallowtail!

Paula's Card... she is liking that Bird Builder Punch!
