Father's Day is a comin!!

Good Morning,
It's a gorgeous day in Oregon, blue skies and going to be warm.  I thought I would share with you one of the cards that was just one of the cards in my Stamp of the Month card kits this month.  I don't normally do this, but thought it would be a good Father's Day card for someone you may know.
I just LOVE, LOVE the Hardwood stamp.  It's in the new catalog and I just love how it looks stamped in Smokey Slate.  But, I am going to make more cards using this background stamp with different colors just for fun!

I plan on playing, this week, and getting more card samples up for you to see.  
I will be having an open house, at my home, on June 2nd from 9am till 4pm if any of you are in the area and would like to come see some of the new items up close and personal ;-)

I will have samples for you see and we'll be doing one or two make and takes.  I will also demonstrate some of the new products.

Just a FYI, I may have to postpone the Open House, due to a friend that is dying, but if I do have to make a quick trip to WA state, ...I will make sure anyone that has planned on coming....knows before hand and is given the new date.  Sorry, but it's hard to plan things when something like this is going on.

So, IF you do plan on coming or even think you may be coming, drop me a note so that I can update you, should the date have to be changed.

Here are the supplies I used.  Remember, you cannot order from the new catalog till June 2nd.  It's just around the corner!!!

If you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving your catalog soon.....and if you already asked for one to be's on it's way, too.  IF you don't have a demonstrator and you would like a new catalog...the cost is the price of priority shipping and that will be $5.70.  Please send me a note, privately, to and include your address and I'll get one out to you promptly.
Have a fantastic day!!!

MAY!!!! It's finally MAY!!!

What a gorgeous day!!!  I never never get tired of seeing this Mountain from my home or on my walks!!

Or these Mountains to the south of me, that I can see when I walk up to get the mail!

Anyway, today is MAY 1st!!!  I am excited because that means that JUNE follows.....and I am preparing for my New Catalog Open House, on June 2.

Also, June is when my Granddaughter comes to visit for a few weeks!!!

Oh how I wish I could post some of the fun stuff in the catalog....but for now....all I can post is the new Catalog cover.
BUT.....I just placed my pre-order, this morning, and so I hope to have some samples up soon using some of the new items.  :-)

I also placed my order for new catalogs.  So, if you would like one, just let me know.  My customers from this past year, that placed a $50 order or more will automatically receive one.  Those that haven't placed an order with me, can have one mailed for $6.  Just be sure to contact me and include your mailing address.

I am leaving you with a cool Mother's Day card that I did in a class, in April. Some of the things are being retired or have been....but you can make it your own with your own stamps and embellishments.
This is the front of the card.  I am sad to see the Typeset Alphabet Bigz being retired.  BUT, you can still get them while they last.

Have a fantastic weekend.....and don't forget to take time to Paws N Stamp!!

Stampin’ Up!’s 2014-2015 Annual Catalog

WHOOOOOOHOOOOO, it's in my hands!!!  Well, it was before I started typing!
AND, before I even sit down and thoroughly devour it, I am going to share it with you!

Four of us demonstrators attended a catalog premiere in Happy Valley, OR, yesterday.  We drove up for a day of shopping, lunch and to attend the catalog premiere at 4pm.  It was 2 1/2 hours long.  The premiere was FULL of ideas and we were able to see some of the new products demonstrated.

We are not allowed to show anything IN the catalog, just yet, but here is the new catalog!!!

One of the exciting new things that I can share are that we will now carry Blendabilities.  They are alcohol markers in sets of 3.  The first 6 sets of Stampin' UP! Blendabilities will be available to demonstrators on May 1st and to customers on June 1st.

And, of course, another fun addition to our catalog is the partnering with Becky Higgins and Project Life.

Stay tuned for more .....

Are you on my mailing list to receive your copy??  I am sending in an order for catalogs on May 1st.  So, if you want to be sure to be one of the first to get your new 2014-2015 catalog, please e-mail be by tomorrow at the latest.  If you are a current customer, you are already on the list....but e-mail me to make sure!!  If you aren't a customer and don't have a current demonstrator, just place an order of $50, and that will automatically be put on my mailing list for a new catalog.  IF you are not ready to order, just yet, but would like the new catalog....I will send you one for the price of priority shipping, which is $5.95.  Just make sure I have your mailing address.

OK, now, I am go and completely DEVOUR the catalog!!!

Have a fantastic day!!!
And, be sure to take time to Paws N Stamp.

I just did pre-order some Scrapbooking items that will be in the new catalog and can't wait to share what I do with them.  I am not a scrapbooker, but am hoping that using these new items, I may just actually get my photos scrapbooked.

Get ready for a scrapbooking revolution with Project Life! It helps busy people (so basically all of us) document life using photos and journaling in a quick, simple, and fabulous way. We've partnered with Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, to offer a complete line of elite products. 
Becky explains, "It's called Project LIFE because it's about YOUR LIFE. Whatever your life is. Whatever your stage of life. Whatever your family circumstances. Whatever your lifestyle. Project Life is designed to help anyone and everyone get their pictures into a book."  In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

Have a great day and remember to take time to Paws N Stamp!!
